[Dr. Akas Jain] was always willing to take time with us when we asked. In many instances we'd have conversations about things other than the fertility treatments - it was great working with him...is very direct in his style of communication. For us, this was great, because he told us what to expect and what his true opinions were (even when that may not have been good news to hear). He was also willing to make some significant adjustments to our stimulation protocol after our first round failed. Not only did he work with us on that, but the updated protocol and his recommendations yielded many more eggs than the first round.
[Reproductive Gynecology is] a fast moving clinic...The staff were friendly, but we had some instances where we were double-checking and finding errors in some of their work. This is not reflective of the entire staff, it was one individual in particular...Dr. Jain would tell us one thing in an appointment, we'd come to an agreement, and then when staff reached out later, the information would be different than what we agreed upon. When we asked the individual to check back to the notes, they'd realize they had missed something from the appointment notes. This happened several times.

Describe your experience with Reproductive Gynecology.
The results speak for themselves. IVF nurses were great. Sometimes the wait times are longer than you'd expect but I don't know what else you'd expect at a doctors office. The only downside is it can feel a little bit like a factory where they're simply trying to push as many patients through as possible.

I had low ovarian reserve. We ended up getting 15 eggs, 13 mature, 8 fertilized, 6 made it to day 5 and sent off for PGS [with Dr. Akas Jain]. 1 abnormal...5 normal! First frozen transfer resulted in miscarriage at 7 weeks, drs thought was bad placement. Second frozen transfer resulted in healthy baby boy! 3 pGS tested embryos left...He would not transfer more than 1 embryo because they are pGS tested normal. I was upset at this after my first miscarriage because I didn’t want to risk another. After the birth of my son I am sooooo glad he only allowed me to put in 1. He has the mothers health set as a priority. I truly trust him to do what’s best for my health, alongside the babies.
There is a team of nurses [at Reproductive Gynecology]. In my opinion they could be more organized and compassionate...$500 for IUI, $14,500 for IVF with ICSI/PGS testing...Front desk lady and blood draw lady are top notch! They are so helpful and the blood draw woman is so good at her job! The clinic is so clean, has fun 80s music playing. It’s small so it doesn’t feel overwhelming! Everyone is very nice!
How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
He is very blunt. He at one point dropped the F word but i laughed. I find it refreshing that he talks to me like a friend or relative. He’s told me I would get my family. I told him I wanted 2 children and I had some reservations about have told many left over embryos. My religious views were taken into consideration. He called me personally when I miscarried to discuss my concerns. He also talked to me over the phone after hours when I had a bleed early pregnancy. He was always honest with me.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
This process is very emotional. He does his best to adhere to the process but nothing is going to take the pain away until that baby is here. Stay patient and listen to his advice. If he says he can give you your family, trust him and stay calm as you can.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Dr. Jain is very blunt. He spoke to me like a friend would. I can see how people might not like it but to me it was very refreshing. He didn’t promise me results but he is confident. He answered my questions and never rushed me out of the door. He spoke to me while he did the procedures and told me what he was doing as he was doing it. Counted out loud and always had a smile.
Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
He had me on 2 different herbal supplements prior to IVF. Then he dozed me pretty high for the egg retrieval meds. Monitored me closely. ICSI used. I had low ovarian reserve. We ended up getting 15 eggs, 13 mature, 8 fertilized, 6 made it to day 5 and sent off for PGS. 1 abnormal 5 normal! First frozen transfer resulted in miscarriage at 7 weeks, drs thought was bad placement. Second frozen transfer resulted in healthy baby boy! 3 pGS tested embryos left. Will try and transfer again soon. I got an ultrasound with him at 5, 7, and 9 weeks! It was awesome to see my baby grow! Most people only get an ultrasound at 8 weeks.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Reproductive Gynecology.
There is a team of nurses that work for De. Jain. In my opinion they could be more organized and compassionate. They are for sure good at responding and do what they can but being the first line I feel like they could be better. I like a lot of information and I feel like they are understaffed and overworked. It’s a very busy clinic and I think they do a great job but could be better with it being such an emotional journey

Describe Akas Jain's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Reproductive Gynecology.
He would not transfer more than 1 embryo because they are pGS tested normal. I was upset at this after my first miscarriage because I didn’t want to risk another. After the birth of my son I am sooooo glad he only allowed me to put in 1. He has the mothers health set as a priority. I truly trust him to do what’s best for my health, alongside the babies.

I wish we had more time with him during visits, they were often sped along since the waiting room was often full.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Do your own research and be an advocate for yourself.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Usually a very quick visit, in and out. It did take some prying to get questions answered.
Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
Two IUIs with clomid once and letrozole the second time. Two IVF cycles, one with the short protocol and one with the micro flare protocol. The second IVF cycle we added HGH, we did get a higher number of eggs the second time around. Unfortunately, none of our embryos made it to blast either time. We did try for a fresh transfer on round two, but neither of the two embryos that were transferred made it.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Reproductive Gynecology.
They were a bit disorganized at times which caused some confusion.
Describe your experience with Reproductive Gynecology.
I think this clinic is good if you have a common cause for infertility that can be treated. With DOR and unexplained infertility, there’s not much known, or much that can be done without some out of the box thinking and I wish we had more of that from this clinic. Otherwise, I think Dr. Jain and team are great, they have some of the highest success rates in the country.

We were only given the option of 1 embryo transfer each time [with Dr. Akas Jain] which is what we preferred...I felt like I was in the best hands. Coming from another clinic in town I very much felt like a number there but not with Dr Jain. He took time to thoroughly understand our history, our concerns, our plans to build a family and our fears in the process. He always made us feel like family. He also ALWAYS makes himself available to patients to reach him which is remarkable.
Megan and Shanell; the IVF coordinators [at Reproductive Gynecology] always responded to my emails quickly. They were available when I needed them and always made sure to explain things...The clinic is beautiful, clean and welcoming...having an organized lab that does not allow for mishandling is very important to me. The lab is also great at providing updates. During my 2 transfer the lab staff was incredible. They also have Lab Corp staff in the office daily for blood draws which is awesome and convenient and the girls are great. I have no complaints whatsoever about this clinic and would return and refer anyone I know.
How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Our experience with Dr Jain was night and day from the other clinic. The protocol and plan he set forth was different and more specific, his attitude was so positive yet he was also very honest. He explained why things may not have worked in the past. He set forth a timeline and explained delays that could occur along the way. Any time we had a delay he perfectly explained why we were being delayed and it always made sense. We knew we were in the best hands and never once doubted his trust and his guidance. I have referred so many friends to him and will continue to do so. He is the best of the best.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Ask questions! I always made sure all of my questions were answered. You have to be your own best advocate during this process. And for IVF I’m general - expect delays. Things do not always go perfect or according to plan but trust him and trust the process. And always Stay positive!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
From the first appointment and the first moment I met Dr Jain I felt like I was in the best hands. Coming from another clinic in town I very much felt like a number there but not with Dr Jain. He took time to thoroughly understand our history, our concerns, our plans to build a family and our fears in the process. He always made us feel like family. He also ALWAYS makes himself available to patients to reach him which is remarkable.
Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
We came to see Dr Jain for a second opinion after 6 failed IUIs with another clinic and doctor. We instantly moved to IVF with Jain and should have a lot sooner but our precious doctor kept pushing IUIs. We did an egg retrieval in 2017 - following that we froze all embryos due to overstimulation. We then had some delays due to lining issues and had a FET a few months later. This was without PGS testing but we did do ICSI. This resulted in a live birth. In oct 2019 we did a second FET. This time we did PGS and this was our last normal embryo. This resulted in a current active pregnancy.

Describe your experience with Reproductive Gynecology.
The clinic is beautiful, clean and welcoming. The lab is also a huge advantage to this clinic. The embryologists are incredible!!! coming from a previous clinic who had a lot of mishandling issues in the lab, having an organized lab that does not allow for mishandling is very important to me. The lab is also great at providing updates. During my 2 transfer the lab staff was incredible. They also have Lab Corp staff in the office daily for blood draws which is awesome and convenient and the girls are great. I have no complaints whatsoever about this clinic and would return and refer anyone I know.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology.
We had a decent amount of insurance coverage but we paid around $8000 for our retrieval and first FET with all meds. That is after what insurance covered. That also included ICSI. We paid later for PGS and we haven’t gotten our bills yet for our recent FET.

He [Dr. Jain] is direct in his communications. Great at answering questions in a way you can fully understand. He made himself available at off hours when I was experiencing complications and had questions. He performed his procedures professionally and always made me feel safe. ... Our unexpected outcomes weren’t taken lightly and in urgent situations he checked in often and made sure I was fully taken care of.
There are a lot of people who go to this clinic [Reproductive Gynecology] so the waiting room can be busy at times. The rooms are clean and nice. The staff are considerate and the phlebotomists are well-trained; hardly noticed bloodwork being taken. ... I feel like I have to be on my game with her [nurse] so that I get everything I need.

How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
He is direct in his communications. Great at answering questions in a way you can fully understand. He made himself available at off hours when I was experiencing complications and had questions. He performed his procedures professionally and always made me feel safe. He was honest with us any time he saw something that concerned him and why so we had all the information.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Be prepared for honesty. He doesn’t sugar coat. When you need to hear something positive, ask him for it. He focuses more on the medicine but has empathy for his patients.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
From day one Dr Jain listened to every question or concern and made sure I understood what was happening at every stage. Our unexpected outcomes weren’t taken lightly and in urgent situations he checked in often and made sure I was fully taken care of. He may be blunt but it was appreciated throughout my process because false hope is not something I want. He offers real hope only.
Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
We started with Clomid and timed intercourse and had a positive pregnancy test, but it was ectopic, so we chose methotrexate to immediately shrink and pass it on our own. Since Clomid thinned my lining, we switched during our IUI to Letrozole and had a better lining result. Positive pregnancy test, but ended with a second ectopic pregnancy that ruptured my tube and had it removed through laparoscopic surgery. A false negative test early on kept us from catching the ectopic before it was serious. Since my ovarian reserve is low, we chose to move forward with IVF and not lose time. During testing, we spontaneously became pregnancy with twins, but after our 8 week appointment it was clear that I was miscarrying both. After discussing our options, we chose not to do a D&C to avoid scarring. After nearly 4 months, a hysteroscopy showed a lot of tissue in my uterus, so a suction D&C was performed afterall. No scarring shown now. I am cleared for IVF and am in the middle of it, preparing for egg retrieval. We are hopeful.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Reproductive Gynecology. (Assigned nurse: Megan Bollinger)

Our IUI was about $500. IVF $14,500. Plus medications in each case which vary by person and insurance. These were in line with my expectations.

He [Dr. Jain] has always given us honest feedback about our situation and best ways to proceed. That being said, he can also be blunt and make me feel bad. I’ve left the office in tears many times, not because he was mean, but because he was trying to make sure we knew the entirety of the situation. He has also showed a tremendous amount of support for us over the years, from working directly with our donor egg agency to help us select the best donor, giving up weekend time to talk with us on the phone, to contacting my OB/GYN after our miscarriage to make sure he had all of the information possible.
Lynn is a most amazing nurse at RGI. She is our favorite person there - she has served as my coordinator at times...I was waiting for pregnancy test results after an FET, so it was a big one. It was the day before Thanksgiving and I had been bugging them all afternoon. It was almost the end of their day when I finally asked what we were going to do about it when they told me they got covered up with some other papers. It was negative, but the experience was extra frustrating, obviously.
How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Dr. Jain is a perfectionist. He wants you to get pregnant. These things were never in question for us. He has always given us honest feedback about our situation and best ways to proceed. That being said, he can also be blunt and make me feel bad. I’ve left the office in tears many times, not because he was mean, but because he was trying to make sure we knew the entirety of the situation. He has also showed a tremendous amount of support for us over the years, from working directly with our donor egg agency to help us select the best donor, giving up weekend time to talk with us on the phone, to contacting my OB/GYN after our miscarriage to make sure he had all of the information possible. His communication style can be challenging, but I ultimately believe he is very good at what he does and that he truly wants us to succeed.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
If you need time to ask questions, schedule a consultation appointment. He does office visits quickly and will not give you a generous amount of time, but he will in a consult. It’s your money and your time and your health, make him give you the time you deserve.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Dr. Jain is a very busy doctor. I believe that he ultimately wants your success, but getting him to give you his full attention can be challenging at times. The clinic has gotten so much busier from when we initially started going there that it has felt difficult over the years to feel like we still matter to anyone there.
Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
I don’t remember specifics. My first retrieval was difficult due to a cyst on one ovary and my other ovary being located very high in my pelvic cavity. My second retrieval was entirely unsuccessful - no eggs retrieved at all, which was a huge disappointment and ultimately what led to the use of donor eggs.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Reproductive Gynecology. (Assigned nurse: Shannel )
Lynn is a most amazing nurse at RGI. She is our favorite person there - she has served as my coordinator at times. I’ve been through several coordinators over the years, but Shannel is the current one. She is a very efficient communicator, but can be short and not very compassionate at times. She will always respond to emails though, which I am so appreciative of.
Describe your experience with Reproductive Gynecology.
They’re busy. Columbus only has 2 clinics with a new third one just getting started. RGI is by far the more cutting edge of the two and frankly their busy-ness feels like a weakness at this point. The pro is that they are good - Dr. Jain is a good doctor, they have a great lab, and I think they do their best to run an efficient practice even when taking on so many patients.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology.

[Dr. Akas Jain is] Wonderful at making you feel comfortable and bringing humor to a not so humorous situation. Good bedside manner. Does not remember specifics about us individually as he appears very rushed...I do not believe that this is lack of knowledge but lack of time...Very rushed, doesn't fully explain procedures (relies on nurses to explain everything) doesn't remember details about us...we are doing our first IUI with clomid and trigger shot.
We pay out of pocket [at Reproductive Gynecology] - costs so far $200 each visit $200 sperm analysis $125 trigger shot $500 IUI...Beautifully decorated clinic that reminds you more of a cosmetic procedures/spa office than a fertility clinic. Staff is nice but not overly by any means. They get you checked in, take your money, direct you where to go and do usually say something as you leave. I imagine there are a lot of emotions with patients in and out so they stay pretty neutral.
How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Wonderful at making you feel comfortable and bringing humor to a not so humorous situation. Good bedside manner. Does not remember specifics about us individually as he appears very rushed. Relying on him for his knowledge but he relies on his nursed to explain procedures or process in detail. We still fully believe in him as a doctor and person and we are doing our first IUI with clomid and trigger shot. We have completed 2 prior rounds of clomid.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Trust the process and know that you can rely on his nursed to explain what he may not. I do not believe that this is lack of knowledge but lack of time. If you have questions or concerns for him make sure you ask directly since you may not get that much individual time during your visit.

Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
1st round of clomid 50mg produced 2 eggs ,( one on each side) but short periods so switched to letrizole for 2nd round and ovulation was early (unable to do IUI) along with other side effects. 3rd round 50mg clomid produced 3 eggs on one side and setup IUI date. Dr did advise of chance of multiples and advised that we could proceed with timed intercourse this month if we were uncomfortable with that and he would adjust the clomid dosage.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Reproductive Gynecology.
Although extremely busy (scheduling everyone's fertility timeframe, writing scripts etc.), they will take the time to answer questions you may have. I rely on them for procedural answers. For instance, my husband and I have never given a shot so one of the nurses fully explained everything including showing us the needle and how to prep and use it.
Describe your experience with Reproductive Gynecology.
Beautifully decorated clinic that reminds you more of a cosmetic procedures/spa office than a fertility clinic. Staff is nice but not overly by any means. They get you checked in, take your money, direct you where to go and do usually say something as you leave. I imagine there are a lot of emotions with patients in and out so they stay pretty neutral.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology.
We pay out of pocket - costs so far $200 each visit $200 sperm analysis $125 trigger shot $500 IUI
What specific things went wrong at Reproductive Gynecology?
  • Failed to call with results
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Reproductive Gynecology.
When we first had tests done, we were divided that we would get a call with results however we inevitably got them at our next appointment. They were all positive results so news earlier would have been relieving.

Jain thought I was ovulating too early but it took 2 courses before he even tested my blood to confirm ... I had to call to request a redraw to compare numbers ... Each time we requested timed intercourse he would follow up with the next visit asking "so are we doing an IUI yet?" ... I felt like I was not heard. ... After that miscarriage he had his nurse call to say I just needed to do IVF. No compassion. very disappointed. will not be returning.
The clinic [Reproductive Gynecology] is nice inside. Rooms are standard and comfortable. Easy to find offices and lab. would prefer it not be right next to a pediatric office. The front desk staff is not always the nicest but the nurses are great. ... I was told their billing is usually a month or 2 behind. ... Nursing staff is incredible. Always took their time to answer my questions and got back to me in a timely manner
How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Dr. Jain is very straightforward which can be good. he don't sugar coat anything. He also shows not much compassion nor does he seem to want to waste time. Jain thought I was ovulating too early but it took 2 courses before he even tested my blood to confirm , I expressed I didn't feel like I was ovulating early due to my ovulation kit. I had to call to request a redraw to compare numbers, he didn't seem to be concerned to think about that himself. After our initial consult he diagnosed me with Low ovarian reserve and pushed us on an IUI right off the start. We left with so many questions that he didn't address or take time to explain what my diagnosis meant. we had a positive pregnancy test after our second round of Clomid with him, we miscarried and was told we could have more testing done to find causes of miscarriages since this was our third. After that miscarriage he had his nurse call to say I just needed to do IVF. No compassion. very disappointed. will not be returning.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
know he is pushy, if you are not prepared to start IUI or IVF right off the start then he will not take you as a patient seriously.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Dr. Jain was very direct right off the bat wich is fine, he's very blunt. That being said we felt that he was pushing us towards IUI and IVF right off the bat. Each time we requested timed intercourse he would follow up with the next visit asking "so are we doing an IUI yet?" I felt since we were not doing the more expensive procedures that he did not want to waste time with us. I felt like I was not heard. I would have to ask for blood work to confirm ovulation and also call and ask for a follow up to compare the number to. He never seemed concerned to do it on his own.
Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
we did 50mg of Clomid and times intercourse. That is what we were comfortable with and could afford at the time. It only made sense to us at the time to not waste money on IUI's when we were getting pregnant naturally but miscarrying. we want to try to find a cause for them.

He is very straightforward and blunt. He is fast but knowledgeable and won’t hesitate to answer questions. He will give you the chances of scenarios but will let you know a brief overview of different treatments or courses of action that he will take depending on the outcome so you are prepared. He performs everything himself right down to ultrasounds so he gets all information first hand. Overall he is incredibly knowledgeable and has great bedside manner.

Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
During our consultation he was very thorough in getting background information on my husband and I both. He let us know that IUI would be the best option to try as there was no need to jump ahead to IVF. He informed us that we would do 3 cycles of IUI with letrozole as I previously did not have success with Clomid. He did a ultrasound to make sure everything looked ok and started me on Letrozole the same day and informed me that I would take a trigger shot prior to IUI once I received a second ultrasound to check follicle size. When we had the second ultrasound done he gave me the specific date and time to take the Pregnyl trigger injection as well as how often to have intercourse leading up to IUI. During the IUI, he overviewed our plan if this was not to be successful which included a HSG test to ensure my Fallopian tubes were open and a second round of IUI with increased dosage of Letrozole. I was then informed to test for pregnancy in 2 weeks and follow up with a positive pregnancy test or start of my cycle.

Dr Jain was very sympathetic to the loss of our first son and I do feel as though he listened when I had something to offer or talk about. However, I did feel at times as though he needed to read my chart before meeting with me to be familiar with my case and my treatment.... I like that Dr. Jain is aggressive and thorough with treatment. However I had very little testing done compared to what I expected. I had an ultrasound and blood work to determine ovarian reserve, a bubble test to verify that there were no blockages

How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
I like that Dr. Jain is aggressive and thorough with treatment. However I had very little testing done compared to what I expected. I had an ultrasound and blood work to determine ovarian reserve, a bubble test to verify that there were no blockages, and we discussed my history at a glance. I also never feel like I know what is next. I am rarely given any direction on how to take next steps.

Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
After 6 failed cycles of Clomid with my regular OB/GYN, she referred me to Dr. Jain. Dr. Jain was suprised to here that we had one successful pregnancy (that resulted in my son being stillborn) and had had no success with Clomid. He decided to do one more round of Clomid and do our first round of IUI. I had 3 mature follicles that cycle with very high numbers from my husband and Dr Jain was confident in our chances. After the first round was unsuccessful, Dr. Jain felt that my endomentrial lining was thin due to the rounds of Clomid, so he switched me to Letrozole. During that cycle I only had one mature egg and so my husband and I decided to skip IUI that cycle. Dr. Jain did feel that my lining looked better after changing medication. I am currently at the beginning of our 3rd cycle with Dr. Jain. He raised my dose of Letrozole with the hopes of having more eggs. Mid-cycle check is next Monday and we will decided how to proceed for this cycle.

Synthroid 50 mcg throughout treatment. With Dr. Jain I did 2 rounds of Chlomid with timed intercourse, however, my body did not respond well and the lining of my uterus did not develop so we switched to Letrozole. It took some trial and error to get the dosage correct with Letrozole so I had at least one follicle develop but not more than 3. I did 6 rounds of Letrozole. The first 4 rounds were used with timed intercourse and the last 2 were with an IUI. First IUI failed but the second was successful.

Dr. Jain was our second opinion.

This had never been mentioned by my previous doctor, and I liked that Dr. Jain didn't immediately push IVF until he had more evidence....We used a high dose of Follistim and Menopur because he correctly predicted that my ovaries would be slow to respond

On our first visit Dr. Jain he was very blunt and up front with us about the cause of my infertility as well as his expectations of what it would take for us to get pregnant. I had initially left our first appointment feeling like he lacked compassion but we did appreciated his honesty. Once we started the IVF process we got to know Dr. Jain a lot better through the frequent visits. I never saw another provider and I truly feel he made decisions regarding our care based on our specific needs.
My primary nurse [at Reproductive Gynecology] (Megan) during my egg retrieval and leading up to my FET was amazing. I could email her questions or concerns and she would always get back to me by the end of the day. She truly went above and beyond. Once our embryo was transferred different nurses handled my follow up and it was terrible. I had to wait 3 days to hear the results of my beta hCG (5 days actually if you include the weekend.) I emailed two different nurses that were suppose to be handling my case and called once a day everyday.

On our first visit Dr. Jain he was very blunt and up front with us about the cause of my infertility as well as his expectations of what it would take for us to get pregnant. I had initially left our first appointment feeling like he lacked compassion but we did appreciated his honesty. Once we started the IVF process we got to know Dr. Jain a lot better through the frequent visits. I never saw another provider and I truly feel he made decisions regarding our care based on our specific needs. I had several FET cycles canceled due to fluid in my uterine lining. He tried several different interventions to get rid of the fluid so the conditions were prefect for transfer. Even though it was very frustrating having so many canceled cycles, it showed me how much he truly wanted the best outcome for us and didn't want to just "wing it". My husband and I both feel our experience with Dr. Jain was wonderful.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Dr. Jain was the second provider we had consulted with. As he reviewed my history he was very direct explaining my diagnosis of DOR and poor egg quality. Throughout my treatment he gave us his honest advice and opinions on how we should move forward. I had several cycles canceled because he felt the conditions were not perfect. I could tell he truly wanted the best outcome for us and didn't want to take any chances.
Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
I don't remember the specific protocol that was used but during egg retrieval we used Menopur, Follistim, Cetrodite, and Estrace. I have an AMH of 1 and produced 13 eggs.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Reproductive Gynecology.
My primary nurse (Megan) during my egg retrieval and leading up to my FET was amazing. I could email her questions or concerns and she would always get back to me by the end of the day. She truly went above and beyond. Once our embryo was transferred different nurses handled my follow up and it was terrible. I had to wait 3 days to hear the results of my beta hCG (5 days actually if you include the weekend.) I emailed two different nurses that were suppose to be handling my case and called once a day everyday. Finally someone called to give me my results (neither one of the nurses ever emailed me back). The whole experience had left me very discouraged and stressed out. Since I live 5 hours away from the clinic they were not quick to send BW or ultrasound orders. My OB office had to call twice to have an ultrasound order sent as well as my records. They only sent 1 orders so I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks then not another one until 12 weeks. I know if I had been living in Columbus I would have been monitored more closely during the early weeks of pregnancy. I had such a positive experience with the clinic up until the time of the transfer and was very disappointed with the communication of the nurses post FET.
Describe your experience with Reproductive Gynecology.
I think this clinic is truly amazing. They are very organized and on top of things. I did explain my poor experience with the nursing staff post transfer but I feel if you live in Columbus most people would have a great all around experience.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology.
The total cost including PGS and medications was $21,000
Describe Akas Jain's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Reproductive Gynecology.
Dr. Jain would only transfer 1 embryo at a time until we've had 2 unsuccessful transfers. Then he would transfer 2.

He's a thorough doctor, taking into consideration various scenarios and options. He's a little chatty at times, but seems genuinely concerned about patient's circumstances. He [Dr. Jain] did all of my procedures except one appointment when he was sick and a partner, Dr. Nash, helped out and kept the appointment to keep us on schedule.... I had two IUI with clomid and follistim injections (and HcG trigger shot) that failed. Based on age and low reserve, donor egg was recommended.
The strengths are: the environment is modern and clean. Staff are pretty friendly and you're treated like a human being, not a number. They [Reproductive Gynecology- Westerville] have an in-house LabCorp tech, so you don't have to go elsewhere for blood work and the lab tech is very good. Weaknesses: there's not much in terms of guarantee programs/refunds. Billing needs more transparency. When I've had money due, it wasn't an issue getting an itemized list of services (in bill form), when I had a positive balance on my account, it was like pulling teeth to get a list of documented services and expenses
How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
He's a thorough doctor, taking into consideration various scenarios and options. He's a little chatty at times, but seems genuinely concerned about patient's circumstances. He did all of my procedures except one appointment when he was sick and a partner, Dr. Nash, helped out and kept the appointment to keep us on schedule.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
My advice is the same for any fertility doctor, have them explain all procedures and outcomes in detail. Some times I feel like I'm missing bits and pieces of info that would help my understanding of the process.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
I don't feel like a number because I am addressed by name and not my account information. The nurses and doctor are readily available to answer questions.
Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
I had two IUI with clomid and follistim injections (and HcG trigger shot) that failed. Based on age and low reserve, donor egg was recommended. We had one full cycle with first donor, but embryos were low quality, transfer was negative, and extra embryos weren't good enough to freeze. Second donor cycle was cancelled before transfer when donor wasn't responding to the drugs as well as hoped. Donors 3-4 were tested, but didn't meet the requirements. Donor 5 was a good candidate, but had to back out due to an injury. Donor 6 was successful in that we got 12 quality embryos to freeze: After a negative test and a miscarriage, we did PGS testing. 7 of 10 embryos tested were abnormal. Had two transfers of “normal” embryos which ended in chemical pregnancy and a misacarriage. During the first donor egg cycle I was synced to donor, so I had prenatal vitamins and folbic tablet, birth control pills, then lupron, estrogen, and eventually progesterone shots. There were some meds taken around time of transfer, such as antibiotics as prep. This current cycle I am not syncing to the donor's cycle, so there is no lupron, but the rest of the meds are pretty similar, except this time I have an additional thyroid med due to low TSH. Because of recurrent miscarriage was tested for clotting issues, but none found.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Reproductive Gynecology. (Assigned nurse: In the beginning yes, but not now)
When we started, Betheen took care of the IVF patients and was readily available to answer questions, but she retired. Lately, it’s a small group of nurses who take turns responding, but I do have nurses’ email and doctor’s email and phone.
Describe your experience with Reproductive Gynecology.
The strengths are: the environment is modern and clean. Staff are pretty friendly and you're treated like a human being, not a number. They have an in-house LabCorp tech, so you don't have to go elsewhere for blood work and the lab tech is very good. Weaknesses: there's not much in terms of guarantee programs/refunds. Billing needs more transparency. When I've had money due, it wasn't an issue getting an itemized list of services (in bill form), when I had a positive balance on my account, it was like pulling teeth to get a list of documented services and expenses (in a legible form that wasn't in office codes). The drop off for semen samples is not more than a hallway leading to a window with a couple of chairs to the side and can be awkward if someone's waiting there and another person has to drop off, mainly due to cramped quarters. Some times they over book and can run late, which is not fun on a Monday or Saturday morning when it seems very busy.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology.
This is an estimate... about $22k total for a cycle: donor drugs, egg retrieval, embryology, and transfer (no freezing). Freezing embryos for my second cycle was $1k extra. Donor drugs are around $3-3500 of that $22k. My drug costs have ranged from $500-750 per cycle and not part of the $22k. IUIs were $500 and extra for the drugs (clomid was ~$25, can't remember how much follistim and HcG chot were).
Describe Akas Jain's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Reproductive Gynecology.
I prefer single transfer. The last four transfers have been singles. For the last attempt, due to low quality of embryos, two were transferred, but that didn't work.
What specific things went wrong at Reproductive Gynecology?
  • Lost or damaged samples
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Reproductive Gynecology.
My husband had one of his blood samples go missing, mostly likely at the lab handling it, but who knows.

When Dr. Jain entered the office he didn't introduce himself or shake our hands. He spent about 30 minutes talking to us about our previous experience with failed fertility treatments, which made me cry at points, and he failed to show any empathy or even offer tissue.... The good: Dr. Jain is very blunt, which I appreciated after so many failed fertility treatments with my previous RE, who at times sugarcoated our problems.
The clinic [Reproductive Gynecology] is modern, clean, and designed to very warm and welcoming. They have the front desk staffed with 2-3 individuals who greet you with a friendly smile. The procedure rooms are modern, have low lighting for more privacy, and are not stuffy with unnecessary decorations.... Not sure how I feel about this yet, but our nurse prefers to communicate via email instead of phone....
How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
The good: Dr. Jain is very blunt, which I appreciated after so many failed fertility treatments with my previous RE, who at times sugarcoated our problems. Dr. Jain spoke off the cuff, which again, I appreciated because my previous RE was *very* reheared. After speaking with Dr. Jain in his office, he suggested we move to a procedure room in order to perform an AFC. I was grateful for this because after treatment with my previous RE, an AFC had never been performed at baseline. The bad: Dr. Jain spent a good time blaming my previous RE, calling his techniques antiquated and completely based on a handful of old case studies. The ugly: Dr. Jain's bluntness often borders on rudeness. He was generally unpleasant and didn't introduce himself or shake our hands upon meeting or finishing our appointment.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Prepare yourself for a RE who lacks bedside manner.

Dr. Jain definitely is definitely determined to help us achieve pregnancy. But at every appointment we usually have to remind him of our history and what we've already been through...has been great at determining a plan of action to help us achieve our dream of having a baby. He is always willing to answer any questions we have. He is somewhat blunt with his responses but as a woman going through infertility I prefer this, instead of having my hopes up every cycle and then being destroyed if the treatment isn't successful.
They provide quick responses over the phone to schedule appointments and have worked well with us to help educate us on giving an HCG trigger shot at home, as well as the timing of the IUI...I pay $200 for every ultrasound, $125 for a trigger shot and $500 for an IUI...The waiting area is very nice. I appreciate that they have someone on staff to draw blood work instead of having to travel elsewhere. They also have a lab onsite for sperm analysis and preparations for an IUI. The exam rooms are always clean and prepared for my appointment.

Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
We used clomid and ultrasound monitoring for our cycles. We used ultrasound monitoring to observe the follicles as they were approaching ovulation. I only have one fallopian tube so if I had follicles on the good side we were able to use ultrasound to observe them and prepare for an IUI. If they we're not on the good side then he would advise to have timed intercourse at home.

He [Dr. Joain] takes your case seriously. However, the drawback to this is he is overworked and very busy. He often has his phone out during your appointment, and is texting - probably a medically related matter to another case- but nonetheless, it’s a little frustrating when you need his undivided attention. He tells it like it is- if you are looking for a passive, sugar coating doctor he is not that.
You get to know the doctor, nurses, lab people. It’s not a big clinic [Reproductive Gynecology] in Columbus. But they are getting so busy and popular. It means they batch patients ( common in smaller clinics I heard) so you may have to wait to start your ivf cycle or fet. ... You always waited once you showed up for appointment, maybe 20 minutes. And then waited for him to come in, maybe another 15. But it’s a busy place with one doc!
How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Dr. Jain is one of the hardest working doctors I’ve ever seen. He does it all , with the help of his great nurses, without the aid of other doctors really. He owns the entire process of your care, start to finish. Now, this is a great thing because you can trust HE will be the one helping get you pregnant. He takes your case seriously. However, the drawback to this is he is overworked and very busy. He often has his phone out during your appointment, and is texting - probably a medically related matter to another case- but nonetheless, it’s a little frustrating when you need his undivided attention. He tells it like it is- if you are looking for a passive, sugar coating doctor he is not that. He gives you the facts, which I personally appreciated, despite the somewhat rough package they could come in. That being said, he wont waste your time. He will do the best course for you to have a baby, as fast as possible. I got pregnant from my first ever transfer and am now in my third trimester. He didn’t fill my head with allusions that an IUI would work for us. It wasn’t going to, to doing IVF sooner was the best decision bc in 2 months I get to meet my son.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Know your goals, know your budget and be ready to get a plan in place. He is ready to help, if you are ready to move forward with his plan. You will hear your real odds and how to achieve success.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Doctor Jain remember details Of my personal life I shared with him on subsequent visits. I do feel like he wanted me to succeed, not just for him/ his stats, but because he wanted us to be parents.
Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
We used an antagonist protocol. He really worked with us, as we had a family trip as i started stims and we figured it out so I could still start. 375 gonal f, 150 menopur, 75 cetrotide after 5 days. He adjusted after a week or so bc I had some big eggs, we wanted to try to get more little ones to To catch up. He Said our goal was 12, with my diminished reserve. He retrieved 16, 13 mature. 11 fertilized with icsi. Unfortunately, only 4! Made it to day 5 and frozen. Probably due to my egg quality. Sent out for pgs and 2 normal. FET the next month and BFP!! First transfer :)
Describe your experience with your nurse at Reproductive Gynecology. (Assigned nurse: Shannel)
Not enough good things to say about the nurses. They care for you, they want the best for you, and are always willing to go the extra mile!! I have a few of their personal cell phone numbers in case I had questions, needed help with injections, questions before I go transferred to my obgyb.. they were just amazing.
Describe your experience with Reproductive Gynecology.
They are great because your care really stays in one team. You get to know the doctor, nurses, lab people. It’s not a big clinic in Columbus. But they are getting so busy and popular. It means they batch patients ( common in smaller clinics I heard) so you may have to wait to start your ivf cycle or fet. They can’t have patients at various stages, they need to keep them together Or they’d be overwhelmed. As it is, dr Jain needs a full time other doctor bc he has his hands full. Really full. But he knows how good he is, and probably doesn’t want to bring someone else in that he can’t control their performance/ outcome ( my opinion)

Describe Akas Jain's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Reproductive Gynecology.

Dr. Jain is very blunt, but I think that he actually cares, which is refreshing after my experience at ORM. A lot of people describe him as pretentious, but to me he just seems confident and that is reassuring for me. It is useful to be informed and go into an appointment with questions and not let him get off topic. He is ALWAYS at the clinic, I am not sure if he ever does anything but work. But he seems to really like his job and care about his patients.

Dr. Jain is the first doctor to give me hope. On our first consult, he reviewed my file and explained to me why IVF CAN work for us. He was realistic about our expectations given my age and my physiological history, but he was encouraging, positive, and hopeful. At that point, that was all we needed. And all along this process, he has been so involved I couldn’t be more grateful for his support and the warmth from his staff as well.

Dr Jain was very straightforward and honest with me since the first consultation. He knew exactly what he was doing and everything about my case. This gave me a lot of confidence during the process He wanted to understand the reason why I was not getting pregnant and work on a customized plan for me. The first time I went through IVF with another doctor he did not even test me for egg quality or reserve since he assumed that this was not my issue because of my age
The clinic [Reproductive Gynocology] is new, clean and has everything you need (lab, "surgery room", ultrasound machines). The only weakness is that sometimes Dr Jain runs late... $1,700 - medications $11,000 - LAB and PGS (out of network) I am not sure about the in network portion (Dr visit, ultrasounds, bloodwrodk etc) because this was covered by my insurance... I wanted to transfer only one embryo and Dr Jain was aligned with that approach.
How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
I would strongly recommend Dr Jain for anyone in the area suffering from infertility. He sets real expectations, treats you like a human being and does everything he can to achieve a positive outcome.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Trust that Dr Jain will take care of you and do everything that is possible to achieve a positive outcome. He is brutally honest and sometimes can "scare" you with all risks and possibilities, but he is the best.

I think I've used the antagonist protocol with Menopur, Gonal F and Cetroide. My trigger shot was with Lupron. Dr Jain wanted me in the maximum dosage of medication since I have DOR and I ended up having 10 eggs.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Reproductive Gynecology. (Assigned nurse: Megan)
Megan was great, very responsive.
Describe your experience with Reproductive Gynecology.
The clinic is new, clean and has everything you need (lab, "surgery room", ultrasound machines). The only weakness is that sometimes Dr Jain runs late....
Describe the costs associated with your care under Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology.
$1,700 - medications $11,000 - LAB and PGS (out of network) I am not sure about the in network portion (Dr visit, ultrasounds, bloodwrodk etc) because this was covered by my insurance
Describe Akas Jain's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Reproductive Gynecology.
I wanted to transfer only one embryo and Dr Jain was aligned with that approach.

Dr Jain is very attentive and treats every patient differently. He even texts me on evening/weekends to check in on me and answer any questions I have.... We did 3 IUIs with letrozole. We did an egg retrieval with Menopur and Follustim. We did this twice. Our first egg retrieval we PGS tested our embryos and had 2 chromosomally normal embryos. We transferred one successfully as a frozen 5 Day embryo but lost the heart beat for unknown reasons at 10 weeks.
RGI is a great clinic. State of the art facility with in house surgical suite and embryology lab. The embryologist are fantastic. The girl who draws blood is incredible. The only weakness is communication and organization at times. But I would recommend them to anyone!... Nothing has gone wrong, just having to reach out for more information due to poor communication at times. This is with 1 nurse only. Fortunately, Dr Jain is easily accessible 24/7 via his cell phone
How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Dr Jain is a very busy guy. But he makes time to answer questions, talk to you on the phone and/or text you. He is very good at what he does. Although we have not had a baby yet, I feel like he will not give up.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Be patient but know that Dr Jain is great.

We transferred one successfully as a frozen 5 Day embryo but lost the heart beat for unknown reasons at 10 weeks. I had to have a d&c and then a second d&c 6 weeks later for retained fetal tissue. Due to only having 1 PGS normal embryo remaining, we finally had another egg retrieval using the same protocol. This was delayed several months due to lining not thick enough, fluid in my uterus, etc. Our 2nd retrieval we got 3 normal PGS embryos leaving us with 4 total. For my first (somewhat successsful FET) we used estradiol. My subsequent FETs, my lining wasn’t thick enough with estradiol. We did 2 FETs with Tamoxifen. Lining was decent but both chemical pregnancies. This last FET we used Letrozole. Awaiting my beta tomorrow!
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Reproductive Gynecology.
Many of the nurses are great! There is one nurse who is very disorganized with poor communication, but still worth going there.

$500 per IUI. About $18,000-$20,000 per IVF cycle, including the cost of meds. Plus some costs for routine appointments, d&cs etc. We have probably spent about $45,000 over the last year and a half.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Well during this time we found out I was pregnant (with my third pregnancy). Dr. Jain did not wait and did an ultrasound immediately and discovered it was an ectopic. He treated it aggressively per my request but my ectopic continued to grow. Dr. Jain checked in on me via texting almost daily (even when he was out of town spending time with his family). I ended up in the ER one night thinking my tube had ruptured. Dr. Jain stayed on the phone with me till 11pm and called the ER doctor on call to make sure he was following the best plan of care
The nurses [at Reproductive Gynecology] are great! At times the communication could have been better but I ALWAYS got a quick call back and response from them when needed. They are all so caring and make you feel like you’re a real human and want the best for you...IUI- $500.00...Well during this time we found out I was pregnant (with my third pregnancy). Dr. Jain did not wait and did an ultrasound immediately and discovered it was an ectopic.
How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Dr. Jain has gone above and beyond for me. My story is long but shows just how much Dr. Jain cares about his patients. I unfortunately experienced a very scary time while in his care. We had done an IUI which was unsuccessful and we’re told to take a break while we completed more genetic testing. I was found to be a carrier of spinal muscular atrophy and we needed to have my husband tested. Fortunately he was not a carrier and we were told we could try another round on IUI (6th total, 2nd with Dr. Jain) after another cycle since I would be out of the country for my next cycle.

Dr. Jain stayed on the phone with me till 11pm and called the ER doctor on call to make sure he was following the best plan of care and was trying to find childcare so he could rush to the hospital if I needed him. I fortunately did not need surgery but Dr. Jain called me the next morning To check in. He is amazing and made me feel at ease during a very scary time. We’ve discussed my options and both feel that IVF is the safest option for me at this point. I know we have sometime to wait for financial reasons but I would not have anyone else on my team for the next part of our journey! I feel very lucky to be under his care.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Dr. Jain has a dry sense of humor and can be very blunt. I appreciate this in a doctor but can understand how it may come off to others. Dr. Jain May check his phone during an appointment with you but after being on the other side of things, as a patient who needed his immediate attention, I can respect that and know that he is listening and making sure ALL of his patients are taken care of.

Clovis and IUI- I responded very well to both. Although I have experienced miscarriages I specifically asked to continue with IUI for a few more cycles Methotrexate- to treat my ectopic pregnancy. I wanted to avoid surgery and the loss of my tube at all costs.

Strengths- always find one for your appointments. They also have an amazing lab staff that is quick. Weakness- getting ahold of the front fest can be difficult at times. I wish they had longer Friday hours.

How was your experience with Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
Dr. Jain was pleasant during our initial consultation. He had kind things to say about our desire to have children and our ability to be good parents. As people in our 40s, we were not denied treatment, but we were met somewhat with doubt and a "try and see" kind of attitude without any real plan to discuss underlying causes or treatment optimization.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology?
He is pleasant, however you may not be getting the full value of all the aspects that fertility treatment entails, including education of statistical outcomes, possible contributing underlying causes and treatment to resolve the issues, as well as understanding of the nature of the female body with regards to egg quality.

Describe the protocols Akas Jain used in your cycles at Reproductive Gynecology and their degree of success.
We requested IUI for financial reasons after learning about it from a friend who went through the same procedure. We were given the steps to take including Clomid prescription, hormone injections and notification of scheduled procedures for follicle testing and IUI. After the first failed procedure, we were given the option to start the process over again without skipping a beat, to which we agreed. There was no discussion about additional testing or further exploration for treatment optimization. The second attempt failed, and, yet again we were given the option to do a third, to which we declined.

Describe your experience with Reproductive Gynecology.
We learned about RGI from a friend who was in the process of receiving fertility treatment through the same clinic at a different location. We were greeted with a warm and friendly environment. Our doctor was pleasant and had kind things to say about our desire to have children and our ability to be good parents. He expressed some concerns and doubt due to our age (40s), and his approach was more of a "try and see" attitude without any real plan to discuss underlying causes or treatment optimization. We were given the steps to take and followed procedures for IUI. After the first failed procedure, we were given the option to start the process over again without skipping a beat, to which we agreed. The second attempt failed, and, yet again we were given the option to do a third, to which we declined. It was not until after we visited another clinic two years later that we learned additional information regarding all the aspects that fertility treatment entails, including education of statistical outcomes, possible contributing underlying causes and treatment to resolve the issues, as well as understanding of the nature of the female body with regards to egg quality. That would have been extremely helpful to have during our time at RGI in order to make a more informed decision about treatment options and could have saved us from the heartache and disappointment that we experienced.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Akas Jain at Reproductive Gynecology.
Costs were reasonable and affordable for the specific treatment requested.
