Dr. Londra always makes sure my questions are answered. She speaks to me by name and she is very attentive to my needs. She explains treatments and recommendations thoroughly and eases my mind when worried about outcomes...She always makes sure were on the same page before we're done speaking and that my questions are answered. My very first appointment she came in with tears in her eyes and I've seen her like that a handful of times since. She's very compassionate and empathetic. She's also been very thorough in my treatment plans and testing thus far. New Patient Advice
The IVF nursing team [at Ohio Reproductive Medicine] is amazing. They do drop the ball every now and then but it is quickly remedied upon a phone call. Dr. Londras nursing staff is hit and miss. When I first started with the clinic I had a nurse who was great! She then went on to being an IVF coordinator. The nurse(s) that took over for her is getting better but I usually call her with my lab results and updates to schedule my next steps rather than vice versa...If you're IVF, don't try to be the first person there for morning blood work, and expect a long wait on a Monday. The lab is same day results. Itsba contract company/third party so enroll in their EHR system to see your results as well. Sometimes you'll have to wait a few days to get your ultrasound and lab work added to your portal so ask questions at your appointment if you're curious. Also, make sure you have the receptionists extension in case you need it. Clinic Errors

How was your experience with Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine?
She's very direct but can be hard to understand if she talks quickly due to her accent. However, I dont see that as a weakness or drawback. She always makes sure were on the same page before we're done speaking and that my questions are answered. My very first appointment she came in with tears in her eyes and I've seen her like that a handful of times since. She's very compassionate and empathetic. She's also been very thorough in my treatment plans and testing thus far.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine?
Listen carefully and don't be afraid to ask questions and voice your concerns.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Londra always makes sure my questions are answered. She speaks to me by name and she is very attentive to my needs. She explains treatments and recommendations thoroughly and eases my mind when worried about outcomes.
Describe the protocols Laura Londra used in your cycles at Ohio Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I did 3 medicated IUIs with her and one medicated timed intercourse cycle. Letrozole was used 3-7 with cycle monitoring and a trigger shot. Sperm samples were given the day of IUIs and we always went over the sample specifics prior to each IUI. Booster shots were administered 7dpiui as I have an allergy to progesterone suppositories. Letrozole is better for patients with endometriosis and I was previously unresponsive to both Clomid and Femara/Letrozole. These resulted in no pregnancies. IVF began shortly after the last failed IUI. I was on the antagonist protocol: Gonal F started CD3. I stimmed for 14 days, used Cetrotide for 7 and triggered with Novarel and Lupron Trigger. I did not proceed with PGS testing. My meds were increased a few days into stimming as I was slowly responding. 4 five-day blastocysts came from this retrevial cycle. A fresh transfer was done and PIO was also used. One embryo was transferred and resulted in a pregnancy. However, it was an early miscarriage (approximately 7 weeks)/ chemical pregnancy as it was not seen on an ultrasound, only confirmed by betas. After a new cycle started we did a GEEP protocol: 28 active birth control pills, a bleed, 30 days lupron, delestrogen shots twice a week 2 weeks before transfer, and PIO beginning the week before transfer. This transfer was unsuccessful. It was done to suppress ovulation and medicinally manipulate the cycle to give the best environment for an embryo. After that cycle Dr. Londra recommended a endometrial biopsy (scratch) in an unmedicated cycle. That was completed and normal. We are now in the middle of a "natural" FET cycle: Letrozole 3-7, a trigger, and PIO. We will transfer one embryo as Dr. Londra and ORM recommend against transferring multiple embryos due to the risks of multiple pregnancies.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The IVF nursing team is amazing. They do drop the ball every now and then but it is quickly remedied upon a phone call. Dr. Londras nursing staff is hit and miss. When I first started with the clinic I had a nurse who was great! She then went on to being an IVF coordinator. The nurse(s) that took over for her is getting better but I usually call her with my lab results and updates to schedule my next steps rather than vice versa.
Describe your experience with Ohio Reproductive Medicine.
If you're IVF, don't try to be the first person there for morning blood work, and expect a long wait on a Monday. The lab is same day results. Itsba contract company/third party so enroll in their EHR system to see your results as well. Sometimes you'll have to wait a few days to get your ultrasound and lab work added to your portal so ask questions at your appointment if you're curious. Also, make sure you have the receptionists extension in case you need it.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Ohio Reproductive Medicine.
For IVF its first come first serve. So, women who started their cycles on the weekend makes for a crazy and hectic Monday. The rest of the week isn't so bad but can be a little time consuming. For IUIs it was a scheduled time slot rather than the hour or so designated strictly to IVF patients.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine.
Costs varied by insurance coverage so it would be hard to dictate. General range with my coverage for IUI was around $400 per cycle including meds, labs, and insemination. IVF was too involved but ran around $5,000 including all meds, ultrasounds, surgery, preservation, etc. FET was around $400-$900 depending on the protocol with meds. Out of pocket is reasonable as well. The clinic has a price list.
What specific things went wrong at Ohio Reproductive Medicine?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Failed to call with results
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Ohio Reproductive Medicine.
As previously stated, results are sometimes delayed on being reported to you. If you enroll in the EHR system with the lab company this is avoided.

Dr. Londra is very empathetic and wants her patients to succeed. The only “weakness” would be communication but only because she has a small accent. Sometimes you have to have her repeat things. Her strengths would really be that she is thorough in explanation and actually shows she cares...In each IUI treatment we used letrozole as opposed to clomid because it is supposed to have higher results. We also used the trigger shot in each procedure. I would see her around day 10 to get an estimate as to when the trigger was needed to then do the insemination. On the last cycle, to increase my growth and count in follicles, she added injectables to the regiment. Each attempt, there was 3 total, was unsuccessful. Eventually, with the low number of samples I have left and a low AMH, it was determined that IVF would be the best way to go.
Arrive a little early to get checked in [at Ohio Reproductive Medicine]. Strengths: clean environment and friendly staff. Weakness: The location is a little difficult to find the first time but it is conveniently located next to a sperm/collection center. Parking can be bad during prime hours...Everyone has always been so caring and empathetic to my situation especially Dr. Londra...The nursing staff was never really the same. They would typically show me my room and then page Dr. Londra. I can say that I have not had an unpleasant experience at the clinic. Clinic Errors

Describe your experience with your nurse at Ohio Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Sally but now Andrea)
When I started the process Sally was my nurse coordinator. She was sweet, empathetic, compassionate and responsive. After Sally retired, Andrea became the new coordinator. Andrea has all the same characteristics as Sally and an amazing amount of patience when it comes to answering my 20 questions. The nursing staff was never really the same. They would typically show me my room and then page Dr. Londra. I can say that I have not had an unpleasant experience at the clinic.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine.
It costs $383 per IUI attempt. It ran me $30 each time to visit Londra. Clomid was like $4 the trigger shot was $100. Injectables were $900 but I applied for and received a discount code for 75% off my shots.

Dr. Londra is very passionate about what she does and she is extremely careful in raising your hopes up (at least for me). Even though sometimes it's not what you'd like to hear, but she will let you know your exact chances and explain further if necessary. I think too that she is sometimes too careful which can be good and bad too...I do have a connection and a history with Dr. Londra herself and she has always treated me like a human being and not a number.
Sally [at Ohio Reproductive Medicine] is one of the most caring and understanding nurse that I have ever met. I don't know if it's because of her experience...A nurse made me order extra medications that I didn't need and that cost me a lot of money and the clinic would no even apologized or do anything about it.... When they mess up for any reason, they try to pin it on you the patient. The billing department needs to be checked for the occurrence of error and over charging patients because no one is taking the time to do proper calculation and contacting insurance companies in a timely manner.

I think too that she is sometimes too careful which can be good and bad too.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine?
Mae sure you ask questions if you don't understand or are not sure about anything during your appointment with her before you leave. She will answer any question question you have to the best of her knowledge and if you have any doubt, be sure to let her know.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine?
I do have a connection and a history with Dr. Londra herself and she has always treated me like a human being and not a number. Some of the nurses (not Sally) on the other hand, at one point treated me like a number and acted very rude and working in healthcare and seeing myself at the other end was not a good feeling at all. Fertility is such an emotionally and financially devastating journey that if a nurse is rude does not help but worsen matters. I only hope they know the reason and vision behind what they do as fertility nurses.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Ohio Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Sally)
Sally is one of the most caring and understanding nurse that I have ever met. I don't know if it's because of her experience. She is the best nurse ORM could ask for, trust me
Describe your experience with Ohio Reproductive Medicine.
Their strength is because they are close to where I live and the only one my insurance covers. Weakness, the IVF nurses treats you like a number and do not take the time to explain things to you. When they mess up for any reason, they try to pin it on you the patient. The billing department needs to be checked for the occurrence of error and over charging patients because no one is taking the time to do proper calculation and contacting insurance companies in a timely manner. Also, ORM leaders should take a look into who sits at the front desk and who answers calls attitude. For God's sake, this is a clinic not a baby buying business market.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine.
Even though my insurance paid for part of it, it was still expensive.
Describe Laura Londra's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Ohio Reproductive Medicine.
Oh yes, she did. she would not transfer ore than one embryo which my partner and I were really against it.

I felt like Dr. Londra was my friend. We didnt share our fertility challenges with anyone, but I always had her to express my feelings to. She calmed me when i was anxious and I instantly trusted her to take care of me.... I dont remember everything from memory. She started with low dose pills and closely monitored results. Each month she made adjustments, increasing dosage and adding injectibles. But, the increases were gradual and I really appreciated that.
The billing department [Ohio Reproductive Med] was lacking in their communication and ability to follow up with my insurance company. They told me my insurance coverage wrong twice and really frustrated me. Eventually they got it straightened out.... Nurse Sally was great. She's been doing this for awhile so was very knowledgeable. She was compassionate and honest. Always made me feel comfortable asking questions.... My insurance covered a lot of my prescriptions, ultrasound visits, and even IVF since it was my first round.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine?
Don't hesitate! I was embarrassed and nervous to start treatment. But after being in her care I regret that I didnt start sooner.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Londra got to know me and my husband. She had a warm bedside manner and explained treatments thoroughly. She always made me feel comfortable to ask questions and she gave honest answers.
Describe the protocols Laura Londra used in your cycles at Ohio Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I dont remember everything from memory. She started with low dose pills and closely monitored results. Each month she made adjustments, increasing dosage and adding injectibles. But, the increases were gradual and I really appreciated that. We started with the least invasibe treatment and moved up the ladder. I didnt want to take risks with multiples and she agreed. She was up front that after the treatments we'd done, IUI would not significantly increase oir chances, but let us decide if we wanted to try it. We decided to save our restricted insurance coverage for IVF. The retreival was uncomfortable, but she talked me through it. We did a fresh transfer of 1. She was out of town for a conference for the transfer, but left me in good hands and gave me her cell phone number before she left in case i had questions or just needed to hear her opinion. I was so nervous after getting blood drawn for my first pregnancy test. I was waiting on pins and needles for a nurse to call me. The call came the same afternoon as my test, and it was Dr. Londra herself! I was so thankful she took the time to call me to share the news, answer my questions, and tell me next steps.

Describe Laura Londra's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Ohio Reproductive Medicine.
Dr. Londra shared the risks of transferring multiple embryos as well as how little multiple ones would increase the chance of pregnancy. She left the decision up to us and said they would go with what we decided. We considered transferring 2. But after speaking with her, we decided to go with 1 and are thankful for her information and advice.

Dr. Londra always made sure my questions were answered. She remembered personal details that made it feel more like a human relationship than her 47th ultrasound that day. She shows a great deal of care that I could achieve a pregnancy...Occasionally her accent made me misunderstand, but she was always happy to answer clarifying questions, so it was never an issue. I really appreciated the time she would spend making sure I was fully informed at each visit and had all my questions answered.
Strengths abound [at Ohio Reproductive Medicine]! The pharmacy, cryo lab and blood labs are in the same row of buildings so everything is convenient. For a new patient the layout is a maze, but the staff are always helpful to point you in the right direction. A few times the billing was confusing...Sally [nurse] always had all the ducks in a row, which I appreciated. Any questions I forgot to ask the doctor, she either knew the answer or found out for me. She was always quick to return phone calls.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine?
She is so compassionate that if you’re seeking bluntness you have to ask for it. She will err on the side of cautious optimism, but she will always give me her real opinion when asked. I think it’s just good bedside manner.

She strongly recommended only transferring one embryo, but I agreed with her reasoning. I think it’s smart to keep the chances of multiples to a minimum.

How was your experience with Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Londra was very candid throughout our treatment. She was often humorous which I appreciated. I learned a lot about my body and about pregnancy and fertility in general. She always explained what she was seeing and made sure that I also understood.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine?
Ask questions. She will make time to answer all of them.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Laura Londra at Ohio Reproductive Medicine?
I became pregnant right away but my blood tests showed that it was not a viable pregnancy. She called me when the numbers did not look good. We kept testing and went in for ultrasounds to see if the baby was growing, it was not. She told my husband and I face to face and gave me her cell phone number. Up until that point we had mostly dealt with her nurse (whom we loved). After the miscarriage she would call to check in but never pressured us to start treatment again.
Describe the protocols Laura Londra used in your cycles at Ohio Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I don’t remember the exact names of my treatments. I remember I had an X-ray of my uterus first. I went on a drug that was for breast cancer but a side effect was that it made follicles grow and eggs mature. I took those pills for 4-5 days during my cycle and then would come in for anultrasound where my follicles would be measured. I would give myself a trigger shot when they looked good and then have sex and hope for the best.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Ohio Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Sally)
Sally was very knowledgeable about the process. During our first round with the trigger shots, I had a different nurse because Sally was on vacation. I was pretty clueless and the nurse gave me vague directions. The next month we had Sally again and she was very precise. She told me exactly what time to give myself the shot, showed me where and how to do it, and told me exactly when to have sex. We ended up pregnant after that cycle. I would also like to say that on our first meeting, Sally told us about and applied for a grant on our behalf which went through so we did not have to pay as much in the end.
Describe your experience with Ohio Reproductive Medicine.
The office is very clean and receptionists are pleasant. They were usually on time during appointments. We did have to wait for an hour during our first visit because the computers were down. I think it was a fluke because every other time (about 20 visits) I went right back.

What I remember was 5 rounds of clomid with successful ovulation but unsuccessful fertilization. We moved on to Letrozole, and she [Dr. Laura Londra] allowed my husband and I to decide if we want to use IUI or not. We chose to do the trigger (hcg) shot at home and have IUI. We did this for a total of 5 rounds with one break in the middle. We finally conceived the 5th cycle.
I loved everything about ORM except their billing. We had a few descrepancies during the process (that were rectified) that were a little difficult to understand. But I don’t think their billing is much different than any other medical practice.... Sally was as compassionate as Dr. Londra. I felt as if she were as invested in this process as my husband and I were. She did a great job reiterating everything that Dr. Londra had determined as my plan of care and giving me specific dates.

Dr. Londra was always showed empathy through the process and took time to explain each step.... Dr. Linda cares about her patient and shows such thought the process. She was kind and yet straight forward with me. On top of being so great she listened to me on what has worked and didn’t work in the past.... We started letrozole with provera and did 1 IUI to check sperm counts. She let us decide is we wanted another IUI but didn’t feel it was necessary.
Good communication across the board. Easy to schedule appointment [Ohio Reproductive Medicine] and always returned phone calls in a timely manner. Two separate waiting rooms which was confusing at first. Very minimal wait. Take a notebook and a folder I feel like sometimes you forget what happens because it can be overwhelming.... Sally is a perfect communicator and shows such love for what she does. Easy to talk to explains things well.

She [Dr. Laura Londra] does a great job of explaining procedures before and while they are happening. All of my questions get answered...She was warm and compassionate from the moment we met her. All of my questions got answered, and she is very understanding of our situation. We feel like we are in good hands and are hopeful that we can start our family soon...We are dealing with male factor infertility, so our current status is to do make sure my fertility is okay to proceed with ICSI.
Single embryo transfer was recommended [by Ohio Reproductive Medicine] to increase chances of one healthy pregnancy...Overall a pleasant experience so far. The hold time to get on the phone to schedule an appointment can be a little long, but that is because they spend a good amount of time to schedule the initial visit and answer any questions you have at that time, so the wait is worth the compassionate care you get from the start!

Dr. Londra was wonderful to us. She answered all our calls and made us feel important. We were confident with her. She was trustworthy, easy to understand, had a good bedside manner and was gentle. We contacted her with questions even after we conceived our daughter and she was happy to answer our questions.... She treated us like we mattered. We felt like she wanted to help us conceive and we look forward to having another cycle with her.
The facility [OH Reproductive Med-Columbus] is adequate for the procedures conducted within. They provide opportunity for every service needed including blood draws. We used a clinic closer to home as we had over an hour drive and they communicated with the clinic, even sent our information electronically in advance so we didn’t have to do anything but walk in.

[Dr. Laura Londra] was very sweet and showed compassion at our first consultation. She really wanted to help me get pregnant. From there after, I only really saw her for procedures so my visits with her were very short...Ask questions and stay on top of your stuff...There was minor errors with pregnancy calculations and what to expect at the first appointment...
The nurses [at Ohio Reproductive Medicine] made me feel like they were only here for me and they knew exactly who I was. They were very kind when we played phone tag...Andrea was very kind. There was a few times the communications were inaccurate or felt incomplete but we got the job done. She has compassion and patience...There was minor errors with pregnancy calculations and what to expect at the first appointment...Costs were as expected for the procedures I did. Insurance covered some diagnostics...they are very quick to schedule and take the time you need. No real concerns with the clinic. Communications about appointments could be a little better. For example, seeing another doctor or you need to have an empty/full bladder, etc.
