Dr Eve [Feinberg] takes time out to explain all the details and customizes the treatment plan according to your body.... You need to go in with your own set of questions but she does not rush the appointment and will make sure to answer every question. She has good bedside manners. I felt confident about her treatment and protocol.... I did a low dose ivf stimulation cycle and retrieved 21 eggs. Both my fet’s resulted in a pregnancy though the first one ended in a miscarriage.
Northwestern medicine is a great clinic. They have a downtown location as well as one in highland park. They have easy scheduling. I almost always went to the highland park location. There are hardly any wait times. The facility is clean and the staff is super friendly.... The staff at northwestern medicine is absolutely lovely. They are caring and compassionate. They make the experience truly less painful.

Describe the protocols Eve Feinberg used in your cycles at Northwestern Fertility & Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Since I was diagnosed as unexplained, I was given the option to wait and watch or start my treatment right away and I decided with the latter. We did 3 iui’s Before moving on to ivf. The iuis did not result in a positive test. Then I did a low dose ivf stimulation cycle and retrieved 21 eggs. Both my fet’s resulted in a pregnancy though the first one ended in a miscarriage.

Describe Eve Feinberg's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Northwestern Fertility & Reproductive Medicine.
My doc did not recommend putting in more than one embryo as I was young and had a good chance of success. That eSet worked for both my transfers.

Dr. Feinberg was amazing through our infertility journey, and is still helping us now to complete our family. We switched to her when we were unhappy with our care from another doctor at the same practice who failed to show compassion. She understands how it feels to go through the process, therefore she is able to empathize with what you are going through. She is also a straight shooter.... She was compassionate and never lost hope that she would be able to give us a child.

Dr. Feinberg was pleasant and personable, but she was only involved in a handful of visits, which made me feel a bit like I was just a file being delegated to someone else...Come with lots of questions, she will answer them.... did one cycle of fertility drug shots coupled with timed intercourse and IUI. There were ultrasounds every couple of days to monitor follicle development and when to inject to trigger ovulation. We did injections with timed and IUI to give the highest chances of getting pregnant, which worked, as I did one cycle with the clinic and got pregnant.
Laura [nurse at FCI] was very personable, and responded quickly to any questions I had. There were a couple of incidents of not fully explaining timing of things, or giving me all of the items needed, which involved a lot of stressful running around....The phlebotomist was incredibly friendly and compassionate, which is nice when you have blood draws every couple of days. The office staff was pleasant, if distant. One of the ultrasound techs did not use any kind of lubricant on the wand, which made for very unpleasant ultrasounds.

For the IUI and drugs, it all totaled being close to $4000. Our insurance covered nothing, and we had to pay out of pocket for every single thing. Prices were given ahead of time, and they had a 5% discount when paying without insurance.

There was no willingness to work with me, I was told that my only option was egg donor ivf, she [Dr. Feinberg] would not even try any other route first to see if I could respond to it. They were only concerned with the highest change of conceiving (which I appreciate) but I would have liked to try other avenues first. I do not want to use donor eggs...Dr. Feinberg was a good doctor, I only saw her for a few months, as I did not agree with the only treatment plan she proposed for me.
Very organized, but seemed to run behind a lot (normal, I know), however, I feel like FCI in general is only concerned with their success rates, if something will hurt their rating they won't try it...Insurance would only cover diagnostic testing, which was another reason why I did not want to move forward with donor egg ivf (quoted approx. $25,000)...[nurse] She always responded right away when I would email/call with questions...I wanted to try other things first, but they did not have a good % outcome, so the would not do them.

Dr. Feinberg was a good doctor, I only saw her for a few months, as I did not agree with the only treatment plan she proposed for me. At times I did not really understand what she was talking about, was far too emotional to really comprehend (my own fault)

Although I’ve only met with her [Dr. Feinberg] twice during my iui process, I still felt like she was watching my progress and called me when I was a bit frustrated with my progress. She has always been good at getting back to me through her nurses. Overall I feel like I’m in great care throughout my fertility process, and continuing on to ivf later this month. ... 1st iui - ovidrel trigger shot 2nd iui- no trigger shot 3rd scheduled iui - cancelled due to overstimulation from 50mg clomid 3rd Iui - ovidrel trigger shot
Efficient, but sometimes i do feel like just a number. Informative staff [Northwestern Med]. Fairly quick to respond to questions. Feels like a well oiled machine. Sometimes confusing processes. Starting ivf and they called in my prescription before my ivf boot camp meeting. ... Had me go in for baseline iui when I was doing a non medicated iui. Which i found out wasn’t needed.

Eve Feinberg is one of the most caring and realistic doctors I have ever had. She is very smart and knowledgeable and will work with you throughout your entire fertility journey.I really feel like I am an important patient, even though I know she has hundreds... Not only is she my doctor, but I have felt like she is my mentor and confidant during this emotional time of dealing with infertility. Any time there has been a medical setback, she has personally called me to check in and make sure I am doing ok and help construct a plan of action for the future.
My only complaint with this clinic [Northwestern Medicine] is the weekend ultrasound and bloodwork. Since there are so many people, it takes a long time due to only having a few ultrasound technicians and phlebotomists. I dread going there on the weekends because I know it will take a very long time.... Danielle has been an excellent nurse and very accommodating to any requests or questions I've had. She is always compassionate and smart and has been with me since the beginning.

She [Dr. Eve Feinberg] is very blunt and doesn’t sugar coat things- which I appreciated. She is also very realistic. She helped to set realistic expectations. Sometimes I wonder if we should have tried an additional cycle before moving to donor eggs but we could never afforded it.... Being DOR- I was pushed pretty hard with drugs. The first try at IVF resulted in 3 follicles so the cycles was converted to IUI. The second try only had two follicles- So we cancelled and did not do an IUI because later discovered a Male Factor. These cancellations saved us a lot of money.
The clinic [Northwestern Medicine- Chicago] is nice- clean, relatively friendly, etc. It seems to be a bit cheaper than many of the other Chicago clinics. Billing can be frustrating and I kept having to call and reiterate things, but they were going through some staffing changes. Plus, it is super close to public transit since it is downtown.... Stacey was my favorite- I don’t think she was a nurse but she did most of my appointments. (Saline sonograms, etc)

I had to go through two Ivf cycles [with Dr. Feinberg], both unsuccessful ( because of mine and my husband's complicated fertility issues). I don't know if she did her best.

I don't know if she did her best. Most of the times, our only way of communication was through an app.
How was your experience with Eve Feinberg at Northwestern Fertility & Reproductive Medicine?

She is an incredible scientist and doctor and in the end she was right!...we had to remind ourselves that we were different than any one else. Dr and her staff helped us to do that.

Dr Feinberg was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. She understood my concerns and helped me arrive at my best course of action....I met with Dr Feinberg only 3 times throughout my 3 months with the clinic before graduating. The nurses and faculty knew me well, asked about my weekends and seemed generally interested in getting me pregnant!
I often wondered if while interviewing their staff [at FCI] "kind, friendly, compassion, and with a great memory" was in their list of requirements to hire! I really loved all the nurses including the two receptionists Dana and Nora. I really enjoyed seeing them on such a frequent basis and I felt that there were there for me 100% of the way.

Dr. Feinberg was very kind, explaining the egg vitrification process and expectations to me. I am a medical professional so she was able to be a little more technical with me, but was still thorough. I was sad that she left the practice...ask as many questions as you can think of while you have her undivided attention...
The Highland Park location is great, very small scale and efficient...Nearly everything was out of pocket and very expensive. My personal health insurance did not cover any fertility. There was a discount provided for being a hospital employee...[Nurses were] Very thorough in explaining information. Rather quick to dismiss side effects on my first round of egg freezing...

I really liked Eve. She mentioned that she went through IUI and IVF for her own children, so I knew that she understood what it was like. Like I said earlier, she got me pregnant and I had a son, so while it's nice that she's nice, I just needed a good doctor who would get me results.
$2000 - my insurance deductible. Would have been $10-15K without insurance....Nancy [nurse at FCI] was amazing. So kind and reassuring and never made you feel like you were bothering her...Make a call to check in on the patient at least once while cycling.

She [Dr. Eve Feinberg] is wonderful and warm - she remembered us personally, our journey, and always kept our specific goals as the focus...We loved her. She is extremely skilled and communicates well. I got OHSS, and she was calm and handled it in a way that kept me from panicking. We had a wonderful experience, even though IVF was hard, and she was always available for a visit or call when I needed...Ask questions when you have them - she’ll answer them!...always felt warmly welcomed. Plus, they really run on time!...with one exception: Melissa, a nurse practitioner who often spoke before thinking or being fully aware of a situation, which led to more than one stressful situation)
Claire [nurse at Northwestern Medicine] was so wonderful, reassuring, and enthusiastic. The entire nursing staff was fantastic (with one exception: Melissa, a nurse practitioner who often spoke before thinking or being fully aware of a situation, which led to more than one stressful situation)...Melissa often didn’t seem to know what was going on and provided bad information that conflicted with what others said or conflicted with my chart relating to embryo freezing process, medications, and post-retrieval care...Organized, quiet, clean, friendly desk staff, easy scheduling, not a crazy waiting room, easy parking. The only downside of being treated in the suburbs is having to go into the city for weekend monitoring, which is a very different experience, and for retrievals themselves. But we lived our clinic and always felt warmly welcomed. Plus, they really run on time!

[Dr.] Eve Feinberg was an absolute gem. She was knowledgeable, compassionate and caring. I would recommend her to anyone seeking treatment for infertility. I would still consider seeing her if she hadn’t left Fertility centers of Illinois...Started metformin due to PCOS. 2 Clomid cycles increasing dosage for second cycle. 3 cycles with Letrazol and IUI. Injectables with IUI. IVF not an option due to insurance lack of coverage...
The nurses and doctor [at Fertility Centers of Illinois] were great. I wish we didn’t have to drive to multiple offices for procedures. The front desk staff could have a little bit of an attitude on occasion. This attitude was observed between the staff and other patients or the phone calls they were taking. You could hear their entire conversation while waiting in the waiting room...Started metformin due to PCOS. 2 Clomid cycles increasing dosage for second cycle. 3 cycles with Letrazol and IUI. Injectables with IUI. IVF not an option due to insurance lack of coverage.

Dr. Feinberg truly cared about my husband and my outcome. We tested with results only coming back as a low AMH. She was compassionate, BUT also straightforward...She was open, honest, let us ask a million questions and never rushed us. She was understanding of our fear, concerns and ball of emotions we were. She was always available for questions we forgot, explained or next steps when going through all of our testing and exactly what she was looking for/ reason for test.
They [Fertility Centers of Illinois-HIghland Park] were on time at each of our appointments!! All worked together from checking in, seeing nurse, procedures, Dr. visits and finance. They were great!! Everyone was very accessible and happy to all questions. They were also prompt on getting back to voicemails...Nancy [nurse] was fantastic. Compassionate, AVAILABLE and fast to respond to questions. Made though feel like you were her only concern in the world.
