I had to have a uterine ultrasound, full blood panel and my husband had to be tested [by Kara Ehlers]...I had to have a uterine ultrasound, full blood panel and my husband had to be tested...compassionate and took great detail about explaining things...seemed to be more progressive than the last physicians I had...She was direct and gave me some hope...I did feel a little more compassion and hope would have been better for my own personal situation.
The nurses were great [at Vios Fertility Institute] but I struggled with navigating insurance and things fell through at times and I had to reach out myself. I sat down with someone who personally told me they would help me navigate my insurance. I was disappointed as I feel they did not help as much as I expected...They are a newer clinic and a satellite office and I believe they are working out the kinks. You would have to go to Chicago to have ivf performed which was a struggle for me. Overall, the staff was friendly but I would have liked more hand holding and contact and guidance.
How was your experience with Kara Ehlers at Vios Fertility Institute?
I did feel a little more compassion and hope would have been better for my own personal situation. I wanted to be more aggressive with my plan and a ton of tests were required from other physicians. I felt it was redundant.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kara Ehlers at Vios Fertility Institute?
Ask for compassion and hope. Tell her directly what you want. I felt extremely insecure about the entire process and was riddled with sadness.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kara Ehlers at Vios Fertility Institute?
The staff along with a Dr. Kara Ehlers were compassionate and took great detail about explaining things. We had a plan in place but I recently had to switch doctors due to a new job and insurance. Dr. Ehlers seemed to be more progressive than the last physicians I had in Florida. I was glad to have a female doctor as well. She was direct and gave me some hope.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Vios Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: I cannot remember her name. )
The nurses were great but I struggled with navigating insurance and things fell through at times and I had to reach out myself. I sat down with someone who personally told me they would help me navigate my insurance. I was disappointed as I feel they did not help as much as I expected.
Describe your experience with Vios Fertility Institute.
They are a newer clinic and a satellite office and I believe they are working out the kinks. You would have to go to Chicago to have ivf performed which was a struggle for me. Overall, the staff was friendly but I would have liked more hand holding and contact and guidance.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kara Ehlers at Vios Fertility Institute.
$20-$30,000 minimum. $5,000 PSG.
Describe Kara Ehlers's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Vios Fertility Institute.
I did not get to that phase with my physician as I had to switch doctors due to insurance. But due to my age we were going to try for two embryos possibly with IVF. It depended on grading of eggs.
