Dr. Eblen understands that infertility is stressful and is empathetic. ... I always feel like Dr. Eblen is making the best decisions for me regarding my treatment plan. She was realistic about expected outcomes. Although she has a positive outlook, she doesn't build your hopes up. She is direct and intelligent. I had a variety of exams and tests to make sure PCOS was the only issue causing my infertility yet.
NFC is very organized and I feel like there is a good system in place, especially for those going through IVF. I feel as tough the doctors and nurses are knowledgeable and I don't question their decisions in my treatment plan. ... My nurse Laurie was excellent at communicating what was expected and gave me written schedules on what do do. I am already an organized person, so I'm thankful for her attention to detail as well!

How was your experience with Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
I always feel like Dr. Eblen is making the best decisions for me regarding my treatment plan. She was realistic about expected outcomes. Although she has a positive outlook, she doesn't build your hopes up. She is direct and intelligent. I had a variety of exams and tests to make sure PCOS was the only issue causing my infertility yet.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
Trust the process and treatment plan that she has for you. Don't waste too much time on IUI or medicated timed intercourse cycles before considering IVF. Although the cost is high, it is the quickest way to pregnancy.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
Dr. Eblen understands that infertility is stressful and is empathetic. She makes sure all my questions are answered and is super smart.
Describe the protocols Abby Eblen used in your cycles at Nashville Fertility Center and their degree of success.
For IUI, the process was simple and I took letrozole to produce more follicles. That process was the same each of the three times I did it. For IVF, I had two cycles and chose to do PGS testing on the embryos. I had 4 embryos from the first egg retrieval, but none of them came back normal. I am young, so they thought this was bad luck. The next cycle my medication was tweaked and I was put on supplements to help with egg quality. That round I had 3 normal embryos out of 4, so I'm thankful they adjusted things for me. I haven't had the embryo transfer yet, but will in just a couple of weeks.

My nurse Laurie was excellent at communicating what was expected and gave me written schedules on what do do. I am already an organized person, so I'm thankful for her attention to detail as well!
Describe your experience with Nashville Fertility Center.
NFC is very organized and I feel like there is a good system in place, especially for those going through IVF. I feel as tough the doctors and nurses are knowledgeable and I don't question their decisions in my treatment plan.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center.
My egg retrieval including all monitoring visits leading up to it, anesthesia, and PGS testing was $13,870 (not including medications). PGS testing is optional, but definitely worth the peace of mind. The embryo transfer including monitoring visits (not including medications) was $3,980. They bill you before egg retrieval and then again before the embryo transfer. That was nice so I don't have to pay everything up front and get refunded later if we didn't get to the embryo transfer.
Describe Abby Eblen's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Nashville Fertility Center.
Since my embryos are PGS tested and normal, she advises only transferring one at a time. Due to the risk of twins, I think this is a good option.

I really like Dr. Eblen. She communicates well although quickly. She’s very busy, but she will make time to answer all your questions. She’s kind and sympathetic. I like that she was much more aggressive in treatments than my previous doctor which is important because of my age. What I don’t like about Dr. Eblen is that she moves a bit too quickly because she’s so busy. I also don’t like that she does not perform the IUIs herself
This is a big clinic [Nashville Fertility Center], you’re not going to get as much doctor time as a smaller clinic. I don’t mind this, but I think it’s personal preference. If you prefer seeing your doctor at every appt. this is not the place for you. I do get to ask all my questions when I meet with Dr. Eblen and I’m always able to call the nurses line if I have more questions. They always call me back.... The ultrasounds are $190 I believe, blood tests were around $100, the IUI process including my husband’s sperm washing is around $500

What I don’t like about Dr. Eblen is that she moves a bit too quickly because she’s so busy. I also don’t like that she does not perform the IUIs herself, but I know it’s because it’s a larger clinic and they just don’t have the time.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
Write down your questions so you make sure you get them all answered because she moves very quickly
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
She’s personable and kind, but also straightforward and talks and moves quickly through information.
Describe the protocols Abby Eblen used in your cycles at Nashville Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I started IUIs immediately with Dr. Eblen because my last doctor spent too much time on just clomid & femara and timed intercourse. I started last March the first IUI, I switched doctors as I was taking the last round of clomid with my last doctor so we tried the IUI then. It did not work. Dr. Eblen changed my medication to an increased dose of femara and injection of ovidrel. The second IUI worked, but resulted in miscarriage. We tried a third IUI with the same procedure and it did not work. We are trying one more time with the same protocols and then reevaluating things if it does not work again.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Most of the nurses are great, very kind and compassionate and informative. Of course there are some that are not as compassionate and not as personable.

This is a big clinic, you’re not going to get as much doctor time as a smaller clinic. I don’t mind this, but I think it’s personal preference. If you prefer seeing your doctor at every appt. this is not the place for you. I do get to ask all my questions when I meet with Dr. Eblen and I’m always able to call the nurses line if I have more questions. They always call me back. I am not to the IVF stage in treatment yet so I don’t have much information on that. That will be our next step if our last IUI does not work. Overall I like how this clinic works. I can always get my questions answered and any information I want. For how big the clinic is I surprising do not ever have to wait a long time at appointments.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center.
Unfortunately our insurance does not cover any costs related to fertility. The ultrasounds are $190 I believe, blood tests were around $100, the IUI process including my husband’s sperm washing is around $500

In person, she [Dr. Eblen] was wonderful. While you didn't see her often, she was kind, attentive, and listened. Her bedside manner was perfect. Once I had multiple failures, she truly wanted to help and keep going, but I felt like there was a laundry list of things we could try, but nothing that actually seemed to be based on MY case. Just lots of "well, this exists so let's try it..."... I do wish I had gotten more time with her. As a function of the clinic, you're kind of passed around which feels impersonal and mechanical. This wasn't her fault, but it did get in the way of building full trust in my doctor.
Nashville Fertility Center is a beautiful facility, with a great staff. The doctors/nurses/scientists get together every week to discuss the cases, which I loved. I really felt the camaraderie among the staff was palpable. I didn't like that you didn't know who was doing your procedures. While I certainly don't blame the various docs for cycle failures, every doctor was so different, and it felt inconsistent.

How was your experience with Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
Dr. Eblen was a great doctor. While I didn't see her much, I enjoyed the time I spent with her, and felt she was incredibly informative. Her initial consult was thorough, personal, and enlightening. Overall, I do wish I had gotten more time with her. As a function of the clinic, you're kind of passed around which feels impersonal and mechanical. This wasn't her fault, but it did get in the way of building full trust in my doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
Write down your questions, and be organized. She goes incredibly quickly. She'll answer every question you have, but she'll do it fast.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?

Just lots of "well, this exists so let's try it..."
Describe the protocols Abby Eblen used in your cycles at Nashville Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I wasn't very responsive during the first round, so the second retrieval was far more aggressive (and helped!), resulting in 5 more eggs being retrieved. She also kept close watch on my progesterone levels post transfer, and adjust as necessary.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Nashville Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Tina)
Tina was my primary contact, and she was the best nurse I could have ever asked for! Caring, organized, patient, kind. She was the most incredible part of the process by far, always taking the very best care of me. She answered all our questions, kept us calm, and provided thorough education every step of the way.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center.
Costs for 2 retrievals, 3 transfers, PGS, monitoring, (and meds, not through the clinic) cost around $35k
Describe Abby Eblen's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Nashville Fertility Center.
We elected to do a single transfer for the first round, as we had lots of reason to believe it would work. The second round, we transferred one as that was all we had left. Third transfer was single, as it was PGS tested.

Dr. Eblen is a warm and personable doctor. She took the time to explain my abnormal anatomy and was open to helping me get pregnant. She was limited in the knowledge of my abnormality which is expected since it’s rare. She did a fantastic job in removing my polyps. However, she failed to warn me about a medicine side effect before my surgery. I feel like she could have done more research in order to help me since my situation was unique.
Long waiting times [at Nashville Fert Ctr]. The nurses and NPs were not warm nor helpful with resources. Phone calls with nurses did not explained the medicine purpose....The front staff were not welcoming nor warm. It was a challenge to connect with the friendly surgery coordinator, since she was so busy. One of the backup ultrasound techs commented on my disability which was inappropriate...The nursing staff were always busy and not always engaging....

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
You have to ask her to explore all options when deciding on a treatment plan.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
Long waiting times. The nurses and NPs were not warm nor helpful with resources. Phone calls with nurses did not explained the medicine purpose.
Describe the protocols Abby Eblen used in your cycles at Nashville Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I did the all the tests such as genetic test, blood test for hormones and thyroid, hysterosalpingogram, sonohysterography, ultrasounds, and MRI. I learned i have MTHFR mutation. They also found polyps which were removed. The first two cycles, I took Clomid and did timed intercourse. The 4 IUIs - took clomid and then femera on days 5-7, then trigger shot if follicle and lining were the right measurements, and next day was intrauterine insemination.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Nashville Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Kelly)
The nursing staff were always busy and not always engaging. They tried to be gentle during test and procedures. They tended to forget about preparing the assigned nurse due to my unique anatomy which led to prolonged and sometimes painful procedures. I had to start reminding them to warn the nurses ahead of time.
Describe your experience with Nashville Fertility Center.
The front staff were not welcoming nor warm. It was a challenge to connect with the friendly surgery coordinator, since she was so busy. One of the backup ultrasound techs commented on my disability which was inappropriate. I did love Dr. Eblen and her willingness to take my case.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center.
My insurance covered the tests, most of the medicines, and 50% of the fertility treatments after I met my deductible. The IUIs were several hundreds dollars and husband sperm wash was not covered so it was around $400.

Over a span of 5 years and 15 cycles, I spent a lot of time going to and from this office [Nashville Fertility Center]. You will have to ask the questions and be an informed patient. Also, while I think this office does truly care about patient success and building families, you have to cut through the doctor speak sometimes....The biggest complaint I had was the constant turnover of nursing staff as well as different staff being responsible for different days. So Tuesday you might talk to one nurse and then on Thursday you'd have to explain all over again to that day's nurse. Would be MUCH MORE conducive to patient relations and overall success rates, to have a consistent nurse to talk with each cycle.

Finally, I did one IVF cycle - however at a different clinic out of state because the cost was much less.

She did a transvaginal ultrasound to look at my uterus, ovaries and follicles. She then felt because my periods are regular that doing IUI without medication assistant was best.

How was your experience with Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
I wish that I was able to speak with her more than just the nurses when it came to my treatment plans. However, I also wish that the procedures were more closely monitored carefully because I was an outlier who happened to suffer from a mild case of OHSS with low doses of follistim aq. This really frustrates me because it seems as I was then treated as a number than a paying patient, which really ticked my husband and I off completely.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
Be prepared to ask many questions before ending a consult with her or you will be highly upset because you will not be seeing much of her but rather her nurse.

I was her [Dr. Abby Eblen] patient for over a year and I never really even saw her. We only spoke once, and she seemed very rushed...She seemed rushed, and she didn't act like the questions I had researched to ask her were important or interesting. She also never performed my IUIs...I did 4 IUIs. She suggested I do three and then start IVF, but I just wanted to make sure. None of them resulted in pregnancy.
The clinic's [Nashville Fertility Center] strength is that it is conveniently located in Nashville, where I live, and has a beautiful view from the waiting room. Its weaknesses are the rather creepy nursing staff, inattentive doctors, and lack of financial options that other Tennessee fertility clinics provide (such as pregnancy-or-your-money-back IVF).

How was your experience with Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
She seemed rushed, and she didn't act like the questions I had researched to ask her were important or interesting. She also never performed my IUIs.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
Make the drive to Chattanooga and see Dr. Rink Murray instead. If that's not an option, then do your own homework because she will not explain or elaborate anything.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
I was her patient for over a year and I never really even saw her. We only spoke once, and she seemed very rushed.
Describe the protocols Abby Eblen used in your cycles at Nashville Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I did 4 IUIs. She suggested I do three and then start IVF, but I just wanted to make sure. None of them resulted in pregnancy.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Three different nurses performed my IUIs, and one of those times took so long the nurse made me hold the catheter of my husband's sperm against my chest to "keep it warm." The fourth IUI was performed by a different doctor, a male. None of the IUIs worked. The nurses routinely did things like toss syringes across tables and seemed to have trouble making eye contact or small talk. It was all pretty weird.
Describe your experience with Nashville Fertility Center.
The clinic's strength is that it is conveniently located in Nashville, where I live, and has a beautiful view from the waiting room. Its weaknesses are the rather creepy nursing staff, inattentive doctors, and lack of financial options that other Tennessee fertility clinics provide (such as pregnancy-or-your-money-back IVF).
Describe the costs associated with your care under Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center.
I believe my IUIs cost about $700 each.

She did not additional testing after the first failed iui....Dr. Eblen is very straight forward. She is so busy that there is very little time for her to answer questions. the IUI procedures are performed by the nurses and you rarely will see the dr.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
Have a list of questions ready and be prepared to advocate for your own care. She will not order all the tests needed, so you will need to educate yourself and ask for tests.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?
Dr. Eblan was nice and thorough, but Nashville Fertility Clinic is very much an assembly line. The front desk, phlebotomist, and Ultra-Sound Tech act totally annoyed if you ask any questions.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
A few of them were nice and attentive but in general they are so understaffed that they have no time for providing compassion or to answer questions.

I only see Dr. Eblen when a trial has failed. I can’t put the blame solely on her. The clinic is overrun with patients. Unfortunately this means that the care I’ve received makes me feel more like a number...I appreciate that Dr. Eblen likes to give methods a good try, 3 times each. She’s adjusted dosages and medications to try something different. I know her goal Is for us to get pregnant but for one reason or another, things haven’t worked out for us just yet.

A little difficult to get on the phone right away, always have to leave a message but they generally call back within an hour or so...I’ve had some confusion on communication regarding pharmacy orders. I called to give my pharmacy’s address and rather than calling me back to let me know it was taken care of, they assumed I should know it was called in and asked if I had called the pharmacy.

Describe your experience with Nashville Fertility Center.
I haven’t experienced all this clinic has to give, but what I do know is that their goal is to get you pregnant, and they’ll do whatever they can to try and make that happen. There is a little bit of a lack of empathy and personal touch but they have so many patients, it’s hard to expect them to remember everything about you.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center.
In total probably close to $5,000 including all visits and medication.
Describe Abby Eblen's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Nashville Fertility Center.
We have not done embryo transfers with Dr. Eblen yet.

She [Dr. Elben] was available to answer all of my questions and create a game plan that didnt involve dragging everything out. She let me move onto IVF as I wanted....After being diagnosed with a low egg number, she decided we would do 2-3 IUI and then move onto IVF. She didn't want to waste time.... I felt like she genuinely cared and helped calm my worries. After the first treatments were unsuccessful, she changed me right to IVF instead of making me continue with the other.
It can be difficult to get a straight answer from the billing department [Nashville Fertility Center]. I had to call several times before I would get a phone call back. They did not tend to discuss my insurance coverage very well....Everyone [nursing staff] was always easy to get ahold of and answer any questions I might have had....

How was your experience with Abby Eblen at Nashville Fertility Center?

Be sure to bring a pen and paper to each appointment. she covers a lot of information pretty fast and it's hard to remember everything.

I saw Dr. Eblen for an initial consultation to discuss a process in how to get pregnant. Within 10 minutes she told me that I would not be able to have a child on my own and would need IVF without any tests to confirm. I did go to another doctor for a second opinion and I’m fact am now getting the tests and confirmation that is needed to determine the next steps. Being told on a first appointment with no recent information
Friendly [Nashville Fertility Center] staff and great patient experience. They provide you with a financial plan and options to help you along this journey. I recommend being very interested and involved in your plan and don’t just accept that you need IVF. If they try to send you down that path with no tests then please seek a second opinion.

The clinic [Nashville Fertility Center] is great - you see the same people time after time and there are not ever any scheduling difficulties. The only 'con' is sometimes if you need to page your IVF nurse you might have to wait 10-20 minutes.... Every nurse, ultrasound tech, phlebotomist, receptionist, etc. is great.

I think she [Dr. Abby Eblen] is kind but honest. Caring but not a sugar-coater. Smart and reasonable. I appreciated her scientific approach also; not patronizing to me at all. She trusted me to understand what was going on and make good choices... Pretty standard ovarian stimulation and retrieval/transfer. One cycle we stopped as I didn’t have a great response and next time they added a small steroid dose which made a huge difference
