[Dr. Kate O'Leary] Her bedside manor could not have been better. She was always sympathetic, empathetic, and delicate when necessary. She also did little things like recall who we were as well as occupations and what was happening in our personal lives...We began with [her] by both of us being tested with the results showing normal male function but a diminished egg reserve. This led [her] to guide us to IUI. During the rounds of IUI, mainly due to our willingness and want to, my wife underwent HSG procedure...
The [Institute for Reproductive Health] staff seems incredibly knowledgeable and intelligent. This process has not been cheap, or easy, but the staff and clinic, with its testing and lab being accessible and the employees pleasant during a seemingly awkward experience, makes the process almost friction-less...There seems to be a large nursing staff, with us seldom having the same one multiple times. However, they have all been kind and compassionate.
How was your experience with Kate O'Leary at Institute for Reproductive Health?
Dr. O'Leary was always pleasant and easy to deal with. As intelligent and capable as she seems, she never spoke down to us or spoke over our heads, always helping my wife and I understand what was happening. Her strongest suit is her delicacy in dealing with patients. Sadly, there has not been a pregnancy yet with our treatments but hopefully they will happen with the next steps, which we plan on taking with Dr. O'Leary. She is sensitive to our lives, ideas, and thoughts on the subject giving us full confidence that the results we want will happen soon.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kate O'Leary at Institute for Reproductive Health?
Come prepared with questions and ideas and thoughts. She is a willing and attentive guide in the experience.

Describe the protocols Kate O'Leary used in your cycles at Institute for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
We began with Dr. O'Leary by both of us being tested with the results showing normal male function but a diminished egg reserve. This led Dr. O'Leary to guide us to IUI. During the rounds of IUI, mainly due to our willingness and want to, my wife underwent HSG procedure. Dr. O'Leary performed it upon my wife, with warnings that it could be uncomfortable. The procedure showed no tubal damage and it was not painful or difficult for my wife. Insemination was not always performed by Dr. O'Leary but the other Dr.'s in the office, which still always went comfortably. We tried four rounds of IUI to no success, however the process was smooth and clear. IVF with Dr. O'Leary is the next step, which my wife and I will take when we are ready, to no pressure from our doctor.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Institute for Reproductive Health.
There seems to be a large nursing staff, with us seldom having the same one multiple times. However, they have all been kind and compassionate.
Describe your experience with Institute for Reproductive Health.
The clinic is clean, updated, and comfortable. The staff seems incredibly knowledgeable and intelligent. This process has not been cheap, or easy, but the staff and clinic, with its testing and lab being accessible and the employees pleasant during a seemingly awkward experience, makes the process almost friction-less.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kate O'Leary at Institute for Reproductive Health.
Luckily, up to the point of IVF, we have had insurance coverage. The clinic spoke to insurance seamlessly, while also letting us know what parts insurance did not cover and what we would be charged, which was usually $45 to $60 per visit.

Dr. O'Leary was the first out of 4 doctors to diagnose me with PCOS. This was done on my very first appointment. We planned out our IVF course given we have failed IUI'S with a previous doctor. She made me feel comfortable and was very compassionate about the situation and journey...She has great bedside manner. She listened to our concerns. She wanted to do what we were most comfortable doing.
The nursing staff [at Institute for Reproductive Health] is wonderful. Very kind and compassionate. Willing to always answer any questions we might have. Is very thorough with explaining procedures...Both offices we have been to are very calm and relaxing. The main office we went to is in Cincinnati OH. We go to their satellite office in Louisville KY for monitoring...we discussed the cost portion before we discussed the actual procedure

[Dr. Kate O'Leary] was always warm, compassionate and took her time speaking with us. We felt she knew us as individuals and always made us feel as best as we could, even in hard times. She was always very professional as a doctor and we always felt like we were told the truth, even when things were difficult. We would absolutely recommend her...She was always willing to spend the time to answer them but didn't necessarily go into great detail if we didn't ask.
We worked closely with Sarah and Marie Ma [nurses at Institute for Reproductive Health]. We always felt considered and well taken care of, even on Sunday mornings. They were kind, organized, and genuinely interested in our being able to start a family... The self-pay option for IVF was about $11,000, and another $4500 in meds...the administrative side of the practice had some challenges. We felt the ability to get in touch, just get someone on the phone was difficult at times, and in moments very frustrating - especially when the anxiety and worry were running high. Even simple questions required leaving and message and being called back. Perhaps an online chat portal could be utilized for simple questions about appointments, billing, etc.

Describe your experience with Institute for Reproductive Health.
The Institute for Reproductive Health has a fantastic team of doctors and nurses. All of the care we received was wonderful. However, the administrative side of the practice had some challenges. We felt the ability to get in touch, just get someone on the phone was difficult at times, and in moments very frustrating - especially when the anxiety and worry were running high. Even simple questions required leaving and message and being called back. Perhaps an online chat portal could be utilized for simple questions about appointments, billing, etc.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kate O'Leary at Institute for Reproductive Health.
We have spent over $30,000 as our insurance covered nothing. The self-pay option for IVF was about $11,000, and another $4500 in meds. As an lgbt couple many of our costs came with donor sperm during IUI attempts.
