Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
My husband and I have been trying for over a year now. We have lost two, about 10 months in between. We had a workup done on both and nothing is wrong of course. I was told I’m just an unlucky healthy 28 year old. We are still having trouble getting pregnant again. We had an shg done and everything looked fine. I was put on progesterone and baby aspirin for a few months and now we are trying Femara, this month is our second on Femara. Our next step will be injections and tracking ovulation through ultrasound. Will probably do that within the next few months if we don’t get BFP.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Nice and patient
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Very clean and organized. One of the most popular clinics in town, so trying to get an initial appointment is hard. I made one in July and got an appt for October, so don’t plan on getting in right away. Once you have your initial appt, everything happens quickly.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
My insurance covered more than I thought. My initial appt after insurance was about $100. My initial blood work up, which included 16 vials was only about $230 after insurance. Couldn’t tell you about the pricing on the other procedures yet.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Dr Hunter always made me feel like a person who cared about. In the beginning of my IVF cycle I was waiting to receive 2 checks from my husbands and mine 401k plan to start the treatment. I was told it needed to be paid in full before treatment started. I did have an appointment for a Monday and on Saturday the mail was delayed and the check was not going to be delivered until Monday. I didn’t want to show up empty handed so I emailed Dr Hunter to cancel. He then wrote me back saying this did not need to interrupt my care and to kee my appointment. I knew then he truly cared about me.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
After several years of secondary infertility I met with Dr Hunter after his partner Dr Justice left so he could take on my care. I was not sold on IvF but I was tired of being let down. He did not push me into IVf and said we could try some more IUI’s but my chances were higher with IVF. I took his advice and am currently waiting to see if my first IVf worked.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Carol, Candi )
Carol is great! She is always available to answer questions and will hold your hand and hug you through all of this! Candi is wonderful to! They always keep a great attitude! I am happy with all the staff! From nurses to phlebotomists Kathy!
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
I have nothing but positive things to say! Everyone is amazing! They know me as soon as I arrive and treat me like family.

How was your experience with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Dr Hunter treated me like a human, not just a patient. He was understanding of our concerns and addressed all of them with patience and honesty. When I had a small reaction to the anesthesia (not the clinic’s nor Dr Hunter’s fault at all) he saw me right away and even called me at home that night to check on me. He went above and beyond as a doctor and we trust him wholeheartedly. We would highly recommend him to anyone seeking fertility treatments.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Do your research and speak up at appointments. He is extremely knowledgeable, open-minded and is one of those rare doctors that takes time with each patient. I always felt reassured when I left the office because he took the time to answer my questions thoroughly.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Dr Hunter was patient, kind and thorough at every appointment from the very beginning. We never felt rushed through any appointments and he always answered our questions honestly and concisely.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I was diagnosed with endometriosis and PCOS, but neither were so severe that they should have prevented a natural pregnancy so we were put in the “unexplained” category. Previous doctors put us through unsuccessful and possibly unnecessary treatments. Dr Hunter was honest from the very beginning and explained that IVF would be our best option, being one of the most direct approaches when battling unexplained infertility. We were successful on our very first IVF cycle.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Carol)
Everyone at KFI was kind, compassionate and felt like family by the time we left. Some of our appointments were more nerve wracking than others and they were quick to offer comforting words, hugs and hands to hold when I needed them. They were prompt in responding to questions via phone/email and very thorough with explanations of treatment plans, directions for medications, etc. We loved the staff at KFI and will always remember how much they helped us.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Not to sound like a broken record, but they go above and beyond! They always answered our questions, calmed our nerves and even knew us by name when we walked in the door. When we had a complication early in our pregnancy, Carol came in early on a Sunday morning with the on-call doctor to do an ultrasound and reassure us that they baby was fine.

How was your experience with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
I like him as a person and I feel he is knowledgeable but he was not the right fit for me. I trusted that he would be able to help me so I stayed through 3 cycles. I should have left earlier. I think he had the best intentions for me but he was very reluctant to try anything different and when I suggested various things that I thought could possibly help me he would always say research shows that wont help, I dont think it would benefit you and so on. It was like I was given a cookie cutter approach that is used for everyone and there was a lot of reluctance to do something different for me.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Ask a lot of questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Dr Hunter is very respectful. He is a bit dry at times and doesnt show compassion like some of the other doctors I have seen. He is more clinical but he is very kind.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
All three of my cycle protocols were EXACTLY the same pretty much. 150iu gonal, 150iu menopur every single cycle. The last cycle we did add HGH and ICSI and it actually was my worst cycle of all. I asked for a lower dose as I am a high responder which was met with some unwillingness to try that kind of protocol. I have retrieved about 75 eggs in my 3 cycles and have basically nothing to show for it. I was told that my eggs are of poor quality and I was given an option to try an egg donor next. I have since moved on to another RE who has told me I was overstimulated every cycle which could have made my egg quality greatly suffer and he wants my medicine cut in half. He said less eggs and higher quality is what we want. He basically disagreed with everything that Dr Hunter did for me which was very upsetting but I feel I am in the right place now.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Carol)
The nursing staff at KFI are wonderful though. Candy and Carol are godsends. I absolutely loved them and I miss them. I have moved on to another clinic now since KFI couldnt help me but I wish I couldve taken the nurses with me.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The billing department is a nightmare. HORRIBLE. I have been overbilled numerous times. The communication from billing is a joke. I was grossly underquoted a number of times then told I had to pay like 3k more than my quote before theyd allow me to continue with treatment. I have had to pull ledgers and go through it with a fine tooth comb numerous times. The nurse staff is fantastic though and they are so compassionate. I absolutely loved them and miss them. There are a good number of patients who see success at KFI but I was not one of them. My protocol never really changed even though I was seeing horrible results. I have since left for another RE.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
This clinic is not cheap. 4500 for FET, like 13-14k for retrieval cycle not including your meds. I have since moved on to IRH where IVF cycle with fresh transfer is 8200
Describe Robert K. Hunter II's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
I transferred one embryo with both of my FETs but after one failed FET I was given the option to transfer 2 on my second FET. I still chose to transfer one because I had a limited number of embryos.

Dr. Hunter takes the time to listen and thoroughly answer questions. He is direct with expectations but tempered with compassion. You feel totally in control throughout the process, just with a really smart guide to help plot your course... Initially the treatment strategy was just to induce ovulation (I didn’t have regular cycles) and pair it with timed intercourse since my husband had no issues with sperm. We failed to get a positive result and in between cycles ended up with a large ovarian cyst that needed to be removed which was done so quickly and fairly easily with no complications via laparoscopic surgery by Dr. Hunter. Prior to the rounds of clomid and femara I underwent an HSG to make sure my tubes were clear and also had a polyp removed from my uterus. After the failed rounds of clomid and femara and cyst we decided to move on to IVF because I was nervous about more cysts recquiring surgery. We did an egg retrieval after a fairly aggressive stims cycle and planned for a frozen transfer of a day 5 embryo. We opted for frozen versus fresh cycle because of my age I was more at risk to be a high responder and develop OHSS. We retrieved 14 eggs and ended up with 3 day 5 embryos (2aa grade). We did two frozen transfers 1 resulting in a negative test and another where we transferred the remaining two and one implanted but didn’t make it past 6 weeks. We are now considering another round of IVF with PGS testing to ensure we have quality embryos and are doing a saline ultrasound to make sure my uterus still looks clean.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Carol Powers)
Carol is everything you need in an ivf care coordinator— efficient, warm and compassionate, encouraging and an amazing advocate and cheerleader.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The clinic is clean, comfortable, and welcoming. We have rarely ever had to wait more than 15-20 minutes to go back for labs or ultrasound or to see the doctor. Overall it is a very nice facility and easy to navigate and get to.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
PGS was outsourced and runs about $5k A full IVF cycle— egg retrieval + fresh embryo transfer and all the monitoring, blood tests, labs, etc out of pocket is about $13k and split between the lab and the KY fertility institute. Plus and additional $600 for anesthesia for egg retrieval. A FET is about $4,500 Medication for an IVF cycle runs between $3,800 and 6k and is not included in the package price of 13k
Describe Robert K. Hunter II's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
To my knowledge KY Fertility Institute has never had a case of multiple gestation more than twins and would prefer to keep it that way. Their goal is a safe and healthy pregnancy, which generally means one. They present all the facts and figures and in most cases recommend a single embryo transfer but in certain cases will support transferring two as we did for our last frozen embryo transfer.

After 5 rounds of that without success, we met with Dr. Hunter. He told me that was a "baby dose" and that we needed to make some significant changes. I did 3 rounds of 7.5 mg letrozole daily with ovidrel, 200 mg of progesterone, and various amounts of estrogen. After my first ultrasound, it was evident that my uterine lining was not thick enough, so the next month he started me on an estrogen regimen. After that was unsuccessful, he increased the estrogen to a pill and patch. After 3 months without a pregnancy and having a thin uterine lining despite 2 forms of estrogen, we discussed a hysteroscopy.

How was your experience with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Dr. Hunter is very knowledgeable in this field. He truly cares about his patients and wants success for each one of us. He takes time after each ultrasound or procedure to review results, come up with a plan, fill prescriptions, and then writes everything down for his patients. He is very organized, honest, optimistic yet realistic, and thorough.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
He is direct. He is not going to fluff up the facts in efforts to minimize the situation. I appreciate that about him. This is a stressful time in many people's lives and he doesn't mess around with that.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Dr. Hunter has been very compassionate and understanding throughout this process. He has answered all of our questions, no matter how big or small. He fully explains treatment options and recommendations that are realistic and individualized for our situation.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
When my husband and I started trying to get pregnant, my OB/GYN started me on 2.5 mg letrozole daily. After 5 rounds of that without success, we met with Dr. Hunter. He told me that was a "baby dose" and that we needed to make some significant changes. I did 3 rounds of 7.5 mg letrozole daily with ovidrel, 200 mg of progesterone, and various amounts of estrogen. After my first ultrasound, it was evident that my uterine lining was not thick enough, so the next month he started me on an estrogen regimen. After that was unsuccessful, he increased the estrogen to a pill and patch. After 3 months without a pregnancy and having a thin uterine lining despite 2 forms of estrogen, we discussed a hysteroscopy. I had that procedure done in May and recovered in June. During the month of July, we tried clomid. I did not respond as well to this medication, so for the next cycle, I went back to letrozole, estrogen, ovidrel, progesterone. When that was unsuccessful, we did our final round of letrozole, estrogen, gonal-f injections, ovidrel, and progesterone. At this point, after much discussion with Dr. Hunter, we decided that IVF was the next step. I am currently on birth control pills in preparation for IVF.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses are always present during ultrasounds and procedures to assist in any way that they can. They are very friendly and supportive. During my hysteroscopy, the nurse stayed by my head the entire time, explaining what was happening and what I could expect. That meant a lot to me and made me feel more comfortable, since I was awake during the procedure.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The clinic is very updated, clean, and all-inclusive. They are able to do all of the appointments, consultations, ultrasounds, and procedures in the office. The staff knows each patient by name when they walk in the front door. The only problem I have faced is regarding the financial department getting me a quote for IVF. However, once I bought it to the attention of the iVF nurse coordinator, I got a call from the financial office within 2 days.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Each ultrasound is $170 (I've had 7). Regarding lab work, the cost is around $200 for my husband and me. My insurance does not cover fertility treatments. I do not have a final bill for the hysteroscopy. However, my medications are somewhat covered by prescription insurance, so that has helped some with the cost of those which totals around $400.
Describe Robert K. Hunter II's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
When we met with Dr. Hunter to discuss our IVF journey, he gave us a lot of information and statistics based on age ranges and medical conditions. For my age group, he recommends transferring one embryo but will transfer up to 2 embryos if the patient requests.

I am personally employed in women's health and not once did I feel like Dr. Hunter assumed I already knew something. He treated me with the utmost respect and explained everything as though it was the 1st time we had gone though treatments. He was always available and quickly returned after hours calls. He is a fantastic doctor and I would and even have referred one of my good friends to. If in the future my husband and I decide to further expand our family we will most definitely being going back to see Dr. Hunter.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
As lots of questions and be involved in your care. Dr. Hunter is very knowledgeable in his field and can answer all questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
After coming from a different office that resulted in a failed IVF cycle, Dr. Hunter made sure to make us feel confident in trying again to achieve our dream of starting a family. He presented us with all the information, talked to us specifically about our situation and was always available to conference with if any new questions arose. He made us feel very welcome at his practice and comfortable with our decision to try again after a failed cycle.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We did a IVF cycle. It started with a sperm retrieval from my husband due to make infertility factor. The retrieval was done through a local urologist. Next we did a follicle stimulation cycle for me. This included 8 days of stimulation drugs with frequent ultrasounds to measure follicle growth. After the stimulation 7 eggs were retrieved, fertilized with my husband's sperm and incubated to grow for up to 6 days. We got daily calls with updates on the embryos progress. In the end we had 2 embryos that made it to the blast stage and were frozen. Next we waited to get my hormones and uterus regulated and in optimal condition to accept the frozen embryos. We then had both embryos transferred and followed up I believe a week later for a blood pregnancy test which was positive! We are now expecting twins due Nov 2018!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Carol)
The nurse coordinator was more involved in my care behind the scene. She would send me email updates with lab results and medication changes. She also scheduled all of my follow up appointments based on what we needed to do next in the process. I didn't speak with her much in person, but when I did she was very helpful
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
This is a very strong practice that is up and coming. They really have it all in 1 place. Male and female infertility testing, lab, diagnostics, embryology lab, frozen storage, just everything. It is nice and gives you peace of mind knowing everything is in 1 place
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The total cost for retrievals, medications and transfers we spent around $15,000. This office accepts insurance and did file claims for consolations and some lab work with insurance. Many other procedures in IVF an non covered by insurance. They offered a military discount to us since my husband is active duty. They also had financing options as well as medication discount plans that were very beneficial in reducing costs on some of the high priced stimulation drugs.
Describe Robert K. Hunter II's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Dr. Hunter recommended that we only transfer 1 of our 2 embryos, but after discussing with him the fact that we already had 1 failed cycle and only 2 embryos we all agreed that transferring 2 would be a good option for us. We did discuss all of the risks associated with a possible multiple order pregnancy resulting from this transfer and felt comfortable with our decision.

How was your experience with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
I feel like Dr Hunter and his staff really care about me. Everyone in the office is kind and every time I’m in for an appointment or procedure I feel as if I were to want to discuss where I am in my treatment or make any changes it would be welcome.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
My infertility is unexplained as no diagnosis could be found with either myself or my husband. My only issue was a short luteal phase. Dr Hunter felt that I would respond better with letrozole as opposed to clomid. We did 4 timed intercourse attempts with letrozole, ovidrel trigger shot for ovulation, and progesterone suppositories after ovulation. When those attempts failed we moved on to iui. Same medications, but iui as opposed to timed intercourse. I’ve now had 4 iui’s and am a week away from finding out if the 4th time was the charm.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Angie)
Nursing is very caring and understanding. Whenever I have had to leave messages for nursing staff to inquire about my care they are always prompt to respond and willing to answer any questions or address any concerns.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The clinic is very clean and welcoming. They are also very prompt with care as I have rarely had to wait long to be called back for an appointment. After a couple visits the staff knew me by name when I would arrive for an appointment, giving that extra personal feel.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
IUI’s have been $500 per attempt. Monthly ultrasounds to assess follicle growth have sometimes been covered by insurance, but not always. When I have done self pay for those, they have been $175. Other than that, I have just had to pay prescription co pays for my medications.

He takes a lot of time to explain his treatment plan to make sure you understand everything. He always asks if you have questions and will take as much time as needed to answer your questions. I have emailed him directly on one occasion and he responded within 2 minutes, which was incredibly impressive.... Dr. Hunter has been very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. Sometimes his answers are too long and I'm worried to ask additional questions, as the visit may take longer than I have time for.

How was your experience with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
I'm currently still in treatment, so I can't give too many specifics. However, so far Dr. Hunter has been very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. Sometimes his answers are too long and I'm worried to ask additional questions, as the visit may take longer than I have time for. He is very thorough. I have confidence I will be successful with Dr. Hunter
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Be patient with the process because Dr. Hunter will not rush anything. (The treatment plan, the visits, the start of IVF, etc).
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
He takes a lot of time to explain his treatment plan to make sure you understand everything. He always asks if you have questions and will take as much time as needed to answer your questions. I have emailed him directly on one occasion and he responded within 2 minutes, which was incredibly impressive. There are only two doctors at the practice, but one is always on call and will answer phone calls to ensure you get the answers you need.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Carol)
I am at the beginning of treatment, but so far, the nurse has been very responsive to emails/phone calls. She is organized and made sure I understood the injection calendar.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The wait time at this clinic is outrageous. Every visit I have been to so far (approx 6) I have waited 30 min in the waiting room. I have started showing up 15 min late for appointments so I only have to wait 15 min. The scheduling should be adjusted so patients are not scheduled so close together to correct this wait time. Dr. Hunter is very thorough and takes the time to answer all your questions, which I appreciate, but this should be taken into consideration when scheduling patients.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
With my insurance, one round of IVF was approx $3,500, plus prescription meds, which is much more expensive than when I saw a doctor in a neighboring state.

Don't be afraid to ask questions. While he tries to be thorough, there can be a lot to cover during any given appointment. He is also great with email follow-up if you think of questions after your appointment.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
At Kentucky Fertility Institute, I am greeted by name when I walk through the door. The nurses and Dr. Hunter are incredibly kind, patient, and supportive. I feel listened to, and I feel they go above and beyond to answer my questions and address my concerns.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I am still in treatment with Dr. Hunter. During any given cycle, I take Ovidrel on days 3 through 7 of my cycle. I go in for an ultrasound between days 11 and 13, followed by a trigger shot and a daily dose of Progesterone for the next two weeks or until the start of my next cycle. The rationale for this treatment is based on other testing I've had done - my hsg was normal, my thyroid levels are normal, my testosterone levels are a bit high, etc. I'd also noticed that I tend to ovulate a bit late in my cycle naturally. My husband also had a sperm analysis, which came back normal as well.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff are incredibly kind, friendly, and compassionate. They are also knowledgeable and helpful with questions.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The clinic is clean, comfortable, and welcoming. The administrative side of the clinic is usually efficient, and I've never had issues scheduling an appointment. The only downside for me is their location (not exactly close to my home or office), but the clinic's pros far outweigh this minor inconvenience.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Ultrasounds are $175. Total cost of medications per month is about $110 - $115, with the trigger shot being the most expensive (about $80 per shot). We are considering IUI as our next step; the office quoted this treatment at $500 per cycle.

I came to the clinic with pcos and past treatment of clomid and Letrozole. Because I was unsure if I ever ovulated in the past (unable to be sure by home tests), it was decided we would do Letrozole with trigger shots and monitored ovulation and timed intercourse. First a hystroscopy was completed due to past hyperplasia. Then I came in monthly to get ultrasounds to check my lining and follicles before taking the trigger shot. After 5 to 6 months of negative pregnancy tests, I did a HSG test. It showed that I had both follopian tubes blocked from the center out. It was recommend that our current treatment stop and we move either to IVF or laparoscopy surgery. We plan to move to IVF soon

How was your experience with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
When I first met with Dr Hunter I was relieved to know that someone truly cared about what I was going through and took me seriously. He was great at spending time to understand my particular situation and what my overall goals are. He always fully explains all options and does not push me towards one or another. He explains risks and benefits of all options and allows me and my husband to make the choice on what works best for us. He is great about giving honest, direct feedback and suggestions. Some may see his directness as a negative; however, I appreciate that he does not try to sugar coat anything or give false hope. He is very knowledgeable about success rates and how each treatment is likely to respond to our particular situation. He responds very quickly to messages and will even call after hours if needed to make sure that I am not having to wait on test results any longer than I have to. So to sum up our journey so far....I was diagnosed with endometriosis by my obgyn and after 6 months of being unable to conceive, I decided to meet with Dr Hunter for a consultation. He immediately took all of my concerns into consideration. He began with lab work and a HSG. The lab work revealed some thyroid and vitamin imbalances that were easily treated as well as some genetic conditions that I was a carrier of. He thoroughly explained what each condition was, the prevalence of it, and what our odds were of passing it on to our child. He discussed this is great detail until we felt comfortable. In trying to do the HSG he discovered that I had cervical stenosis from scar tissue and he was not able to advance the catheter all the way through my cervix to perform the procedure. We then decided to proceed with a hysteroscopy to clear the scar tissue and examine the inside of my uterus. The procedure went well and we felt ready to move forward. Initially my husband also had a semen analysis done which showed poor sperm parameters across the board. It was repeated a couple months later and again it was poor. We decided to proceed with low dose Clomid and an IUI to see what would happen. When I went in for my follicle scan before the IUI we discovered that my body responded too well to the clomid (producing 6-8 mature follicles) and our IUI was cancelled for fear of multiple follicles being fertilized. He then switched me to low dose Letrozole. We had a much more controlled outcome with that, only 2 mature follicles. This time we decided to use the trigger shot Ovidrel to trigger ovulation. When we went to have the IUI done a few days later, my husbands sperm count was once again low and all parameters poor. We proceeded anyway after being cautioned by Dr Hunter that the chances of success were poor. We were unsuccessful and at that point we were referred to a reproductive urologist for my husband to be evaluated further. It was discovered that he has varicoceles and the doctor placed him on FertilAid vitamins to see if there were any improvements. About a month or two later, we decided to try to Letrozole and IUI again. Again I produced 2 mature follicles. I used ovulation test strips, ovulated on my own and when we went for our IUI we were surprised to find that his sperm count had improved significantly to 13 million. We were hopeful but unfortunately this too was unsuccessful. We decided to take a few months off from fertility treatments and are now currently working with Dr Hunter to determine what the best next step is for us as I feel as though my endometriosis has gotten worse due to spotting before starting my period and very painful ovulation. He validated my concerns and discussed multiple options for us. He explained why each once is reasonable and also the cons for each one. My husband and I are now currently discussing what we feel is best. He has been so great throughout this whole process and is very understanding of our concerns. He is very positive about our situation while maintaining realistic goals and expectations. I am so pleased by our care so far with Dr Hunter and would certinatly recommend him to anyone experiencing fertility related issues.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Keep an open mind. Dr Hunter is great about giving multiple options about treatments, testing, surgeries, etc and talking you through them step by step. There are things that I never thought would have been a part of my journey but after hearing the risks and benefits and all my options, I have learned that this process has a lot of ups and downs and a lot of surprises so be prepared to stand up for what you want, trust your doctor, but keep an open mind as well because there are things throughout this journey that you don’t consider or you need to think about it a different way and Dr Hunter is great at facilitating that.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
From the moment I walked in to the office, I was greeted by name and with a smile and made to feel very welcomed. Dr. Hunter refers to both me and my husband by name (rather than just “your husband”) and always greets us with a hand shake. He remembers details such as treatment/outcomes that we have had in the past and what I do for a living. It is very refreshing to feel like the staff in general truly care about you as a person and not just you as the patient.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
The plan for my first treatment cycle was the lowest dose clomid to help produce more mature follicles with a trigger ovulation shot (Ovidrel) and IUI. When I went for my pre-IUI ultrasound, I had produced 6-8 mature follicles and the IUI was cancelled for fear of fertilizing multiple follicles. I was then switched to the lowest does Letrozole to try to control my ovaries’ response. I went in for a follicle scan and had produced 2 mature follicles but they were still a little small so a few days later we repeated the scan and it was determined that they were large enough to use the ovulation trigger shot and proceed with IUI a couple days later. When we went in for our IUI, my husband’s sperm parameters were very poor but we proceeded anyway although Dr Hunter cautioned us of the likely negative outcome. Unfortunately we were not successful and after seeking treatment for my husband’s low sperm count we decided to do the Letrozole and IUI again. This time at my follicle scan I had 2 mature follicles again and was told when to take my trigger shot unless I got a positive ovulation test before then which I did. So we did the IUI the next day with significantly improved sperm count and motility. We were able to use 13 million compared to the previous 1 million in our previous cycle. Unfortunately that cycle was unsuccessful as well and we are currently in the process of deciding how we want to proceed for our next cycle.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Stacey Nalley)
Stacey has welcomed me at every appointment with the exception of one. She is the one who always takes me to my room and assists Dr Hunter or is present with him during exams. She is always smiling and has such a positive attitude. She remembers little details about me such as if I do something different with my hair or asks how school is going. That makes me feel like she truly cares about me as a person. She cheers me on, comforts me, and provides tissues when I need them. I appreciate all that she does and I think she is a great partner to Dr Hunter.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
I have enjoyed every aspect of this clinic. The front desk coordinator Angie is so positive and helpful. She is always smiling and is very knowledgeable. The staff as a whole are all so friendly and welcoming, always smiling, and calling me by name as soon as I walk through the door. The facility is clean, quiet, comforting, and you can tell the equipment is state of the art. I like that Dr Hunter meets with me in his office when we need to have a lengthy conversation instead of in an exam room. The staff is great at respecting privacy. They offer free coffee and drinks in the waiting room which sometimes is the little pick-me-up that you need. I appreciate how organized they are and how everything seems to run smoothly. Overall I am very pleased with KFI.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Unfortunately my insurance doesn’t cover any fertility treatments or appointments and only some medications. The Clomid and Letrozole were covered by insurance costing about $10 for each. Each IUI cost about $500 excluding medications and follicle scans. The trigger shot costs roughly $140. The hysteroscopy procedure costed about $900. I believe the semen analysis costs somewhere between $100-150. Once all this was paid for I believe I owe somewhere between $1200-2000 out of pocket for visits and ultrasounds.

He greeted me with a handshake at the start of each appointment. He always closed with a meeting in his office to answer any questions. He made you feel like he was really available for discussing next steps and questions. He always returned phone calls, never leaving that up to his staff.

Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We used Clomid, opposed to Letrozole b/c he felt like that would be ideal for my case. I had been on Letrozole with former clinic. I came in for follicle ultrasound and he chose to wait an extra day for my IUI in order to grow more follicles.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Stacy)
I loved Stacy! She is so warm and makes you feel so relaxed. She remembers things about who you are as a person which always makes you feel like a "human" and "not a number". I loved that Stacy was always with Dr. Hunter, I felt like both were a steady presence during this journey.

I completed a full tube removal performed by Dr. Hunter due to bilateral hydrosalpinx. Dr. Hunter was always available if I ever had questions or concerns...First, I had a laparotomy to remove my fallopian tubes, which were filled with fluid and would cause normal fertilization or IVF to be unsuccessful. After tube removal, I completed a course of stimulation medications to prepare for egg retrieval. I used a combination of the following medications: Menopur, Gonal F, Leuprolide and Ovidrel, with higher doses for my egg stimulation as I had a low ovarian reserve.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Carol)
Carol started out sympathetic and took her time when I had questions during egg stimulation treatment. Carol did not seem to have a full understanding of the amount of medications I had for egg retrieval, which put me in a tough situation when I had to order additional medicine at the last minute during stimulation. She was also difficult to get ahold of toward the end of stimulation.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The clinic is new and has a great set up. What they don't tell you is that while the doctor may be covered by your insurance, they use their own facility which may not (and in my case was not) covered under insurance. The payment process was not clear, and many "surprise" costs showed up once the egg retrieval was complete.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
I did not have much choice on the time my monitoring appointments were scheduled. Some were quick, and some took much longer. There did not seem to be an excessive amount of patients waiting at any given time I was in the clinic.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Medications were approximately $10,000, additional fees including monitoring, egg retrieval, labs, anesthesia, etc. totaled around $3,000-$5,000

How was your experience with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Dr. Hunter is a very intelligent and highly educated man. You can clearly see all of his accomplishments by just looking at his wall of degrees, diplomas and awards in his office. It is almost intimidating to be in the presence of someone who has achieved so much. You are already feeling nervous and anxious and maybe even a little sad and disheartened that you even have to be there because how things have unfolded is so unbelievably different than what you had planned. You also might be afraid that you will say something wrong or make yourself look stupid infront of someone who could have the answers that could potinetally end your years of suffering and hold the solution to your broken heart. He was reassuring, calm and relatable. He gave me options. He didn’t order me around. He tailored our treatment around our needs and our schedule. He and his staff were so accommodating which meant so much to us as we live 3 hours from the clinic and travel and time off work were difficult barriers to work with. He and his staff made theirselves available to us for any questions or concernes that we had. Communication, feeling included and involved is very important to me. Dr. Hunter made sure those needs were his top priority.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
I would tell a prospective patient to not let fear hold them back. To go ahead and make the first step or don’t let previous experiences hold you back from seeking out Dr. Hunter and his expertise. You can feel the passion they have for their field and their commitment to their patients.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
In the past by other fertility specialists I have been treated like a number so my guard was already up. Dr. Hunter was kind and gentle. He was patient. And he actually listened to me when I spoke. He didn’t overwhelm me. He didn’t bombard me with information that I didn’t understand. He wasn’t rushed and took the time to get to know my husband and I.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
Doctor Hunter did very in-depth labs and testing on my husband and I. He made sure we were healthy and our levels were normal to better increase our chances of success. He also gave us advise on vitamins and supplements that would benefit us best and he also got back with me immediately when a couple of my labs were abnormal. He also helped me find ways to improve them before the cycle. He also did a ultrasound to measure my follicles and uterine lining to make sure I was ready for the cycle and to determine exactly when I needed to administer my injection.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were all so helpful and open to any questions I had. They always made time for me and were always smiling and optimistic. They were also very knowledgeable and efficient.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
I would say the clincis biggest strengths would be compassion and communication. To be a fairly new clinic they are very organized, well managed and well equipped. They met all of my and my husbands needs and expectations so I cannot pin point any weaknesses at this time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The IUI itself was $1,000. My labs were $250. My husbands were $110. My ultrasound was $90. My clomid was $10. My shot was $75 with the discount card.

It’s easy to reach Dr Hunter for questions and concerns and he is very patient addressing them. He performs all the ultrasound and IUI procedures by himself which I know nurse does in other clinics. The fact he is always willing to spend his time make me feel very comfortable that I can trust him. He is very professional and will not push for procedures that are not necessary. He explains everything in details to me and my husband. I remember him right by my bed side after I woke up from egg retrieval to check on me. He makes responsible medical advice to only transfer one embryo even though it might not be what I want to hear but he knows that’s the right advice in our situation.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Dr Hunter made me feel important not just another patient. He spent his time to answer all our questions and provide advices. He is a very dedicated to patient care.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism by Dr Hunter. Also I have PCOS, we started with Letrozole for 6 cycles and did 5 IUI with no pregnancy. So we moved on to IVF, I was on gonal F 150 units due to PCOS and was given Lupron Trigger to prevent OHSS. I produced 20 eggs and retrieved 17 of them. 14 were matured, 11 fertilized. On day 5, we froze 5 embryos. Then we did a frozen transfer cycle and became pregnant and just recently delivered my baby girl.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Carol)
Carol is always very helpful and professional. She is also very personable. She held my hand in procedures which made me feel secure and at ease. She is also very knowledgeable and get back to me quickly with answers to my questions
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
They are always on time for appointments, I never had to wait more than 15 mins from my scheduled appointment time. Very easy to work with. Every staff member is helpful and friendly. The billing department messed up our bills several times though, that’s the only part I don’t like about this clinic.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
IUI price was very reasonable, about 250-300 dollars. IVF cycle is 13500 without medication.
Describe Robert K. Hunter II's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
He strongly recommended one embryo transfer even though I wanted to transfer two. Ultimately it was my choice. Given my age and quality of the embryo I knew his advice is right and we followed it at the end.

How was your experience with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Strengths: Very thorough and spends time discussing patient's questions Makes himself available at all hours and responds quickly Incredibly knowledgeable on the subject matter Trustworthy Weaknesses: Can lack emotional connection to patient or empathy
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
It's probably like this with most fertility clinics, but be prepared to come into the office often for many visits. Have patience, as the process of trying to get pregnant is not a quick one. Dr. Hunter does not like to rush things, so you will need to trust in him and his timeline. If you are looking for someone who is emotional and will show you empathy, he is not the right doctor for you. But if you're looking for someone who is incredibly skilled, detail oriented, focused and trustworthy, he's your guy.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Dr. Hunter took my calls/emails at all hours of the day. He said to email or call him at any time and he meant it. I was under his care for one year and dealt with the removal of an ovarian cyst, a failed IUI, and also a successful round of IVF. Through the months of "let's wait and see" while the ovarian cyst was being dealt with, it was difficult to just sit back and wait, but I trusted that Dr. Hunter knew the best steps to take. After waiting several months for the cyst to go away on its own, we decided together that it was best to surgically remove it. That process was very difficult and the surgery was much harder than I was anticipating. When I was finally able to try IUI, it was a big let down when it did not work. The success rates for IUI are low and the statistics show that. Dr. Hunter was very focused on the science of how/why/when I could get pregnant, and at times it was difficult to not have him be more emotional, however, looking back I understand why. The next step was IVF. He and his team were phenomenal, always there to listen to me and answer my questions. But again, he didn't let me lose site of the statistics and the probability of me actually getting pregnant. It's a difficult balancing act between being practical and giving someone hope, but he managed to show me all angles of the equation. At this point, I had been under his care for nine months, so I knew him and his team well and was comfortable with them, but even if I had just met them, I am confident I would have trusted in them just the same. IVF is a very raw, emotional, tiring experience, and without Dr. Hunter and his team I'm not sure I could have made it through. Whether it was the IVF nurse, the lab director, the other nurses on his team, or the wonderful lady who handled blood draws, everyone made me feel like a person, not just another patient. I was fortunate enough to become pregnant with twins, and on my last visit I was in tears to leave these great people. A bittersweet ending! Very happy to be pregnant but sad to be leaving a team of people I had shared such an emotional journey with. I highly recommend Dr. Hunter and his team at the Kentucky Fertility Institute. They are wonderful.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
While doing IUI, I basically just took an Ovidrel shot to trigger ovulation and that was that. I did not have a successful round of IUI. IVF was much more complex and I did become pregnant with twins. I am currently pregnant, so have not yet given birth. IVF to prepare for the retrieval for about 2.5 weeks: Lupron 5 units Follistim 225 units twice a day Menopur 150 IU Lovenox 40 mg (blood thinner for other medical issue I have) Doxycycilne - for 5 days After the egg transfer taken for 6 weeks: Crinone gel 8% daily Progesterone oil injection daily Estradiol tab 2mg taken vaginally twice daily Estradiol tab 2mg taken orally twice daily Doxycycline for 10 days Lovenox injection (blood thinner for other health issue)
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Carol Powers)
The IVF Coordinator Carol Powers is phenomenal. She made me feel comfortable every step of the way. She truly is a huge part of the reason why I made it through the IVF process. Stacie and Candie are two other nurses who helped me a lot. Stacie saw me through many ultrasounds that were a disappointment to me when I was waiting for the ovarian cyst to go away.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The clinic is very clean (it's a very new facility) and well kept. The waiting room has a TV and refreshments for those waiting. Sometimes the wait was a bit long. This is probably in part because the doctors like to fully explain all of their patient's questions which can then cause them to be a bit behind on other appointments. But it was not uncommon for them to be running behind.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
I believe we paid $250 for the Hysterosalingogram (HSG) that was needed at the very start of my time at the clinic to determine if my tubes were blocked. There was one other $250 charge at the beginning, but I'm forgetting entirely what it was for. Thankfully my husband and I have very good insurance, so a lot of the medications were fully covered or had a small co-pay. We did have a $4,350 out of pocket cost for IVF. We also had a $525 cost for the anesthesia for the egg retrieval. Blood draws each time were also $70 each time, which my insurance covered. The Ovidrel shot is $99 each time, too, and I had two of those.
Describe Robert K. Hunter II's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Dr. Hunter was comfortable transferring two embryos but no more. He did say that since I have a blood clotting disorder, it would be more strain on my body if I were to get pregnant with multiples and he provided me the risks in advance. However, he didn't say it was out of the question to have twins and was in support of what I preferred.

Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
Before starting out IVF cycle he recommended we have pre-genetic testing done. This slightly changed our course once we received unforeseen results. In which case we were very pleased that he recommend that we do the testing. We set up PGD testing to be preformed on the embryos after retrieval. We did IVF, we got 30 eggs retrieved. 12 fertilized and 2 made it to freeze. Unfortunately both came back with negative transferable results through the 3rd party testing. We are planning on trying the IVF process again with another egg retrieval in the future.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Kathy, Carol, Angie )
I love the entire staff! Everyone of them always said hello to me by name and they really start to become your little family during the process. It's just how an infertility clinic should be! Infertility is a difficult thing to go through, but they made it as comfortable as possible for me !
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The staff is very welcoming and encouraging to their patients. They are very prompt to find answers to questions I have. The only thing that I would suggest would be to Possibly have a more thorough explanation about all the medications, how to mix them, and then possibly have a more thorough explanation about all the medications, how to mix them, and inject them. That was the only part of the process that I was very nervous about in the beginning, and felt I could have used a little more explanation. But otherwise they are a great, caring, compassionate and knowledgeable staff.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
My insurance was initially taken at our first appointments. The co-pays weren't bad due to our insurance. They would put a credit card on file for us for any labs that were done in case there was a balance. And their IVF cycles are mainly all-inclusive so you pay one set amount at the beginning and there are no additional charges to write your cycle, which is nice and makes things a little less stressful.
Describe Robert K. Hunter II's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Because I have had several miscarriage, Dr. Hunter suggested that we only transfer embryo when the time comes. He did not want to complicate a possible pregnancy by transferring more than one embryo. This was to avoid another miscarriage outcome.

Dr. Hunter has been amazing to work with so far. From the very first time we met with him to the most recent appointments he has shown compassion, patience, and understanding. After our recent IUI failed he called me himself to say he was sorry our cycle wasn't successful....Dr. Hunter believes that IUI is a good option for my husband and I because of my diagnosis. I do ovulate on my own and we have no other known issues so we decided on unmedicated IUI cycles. The plan is to try unmedicated cycles but also keeping the option of medication open if we don't get the results we want.

After our recent IUI failed he called me himself to say he was sorry our cycle wasn't successful. I was expecting a call from the nurse but I was so happy to be able to speak with him directly. He has always explained our options with our fertility journey. Once he gave us options he talked through them with us and supported our decision. I have enjoyed working with him and look forward to continuing to work with him.

Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
After having an HSG I was diagnosed with cervical stenosis. Dr. Hunter believes that IUI is a good option for my husband and I because of my diagnosis. I do ovulate on my own and we have no other known issues so we decided on unmedicated IUI cycles. The plan is to try unmedicated cycles but also keeping the option of medication open if we don't get the results we want. We have had one unsuccessful IUI and we are planning for our second this next cycle.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff at KFI is amazing. They call you by name and make you feel like a person. I was very upset during my first time at KFI because of the results of a test and our nurse handed me a box of tissues before stepping out of the room to give my husband and I a moment alone. When she came back she put her arm around me and said "I know this is hard, but it's only a bump in the road. We will just keep going". I felt like she truly cared about how I felt and that made that experience so special.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The clinic is a fairly new clinic but so far I haven't found any weaknesses. They truly put their patients first and they make such an awful time in life just a little bit easier. I've always been greeted with a smile and called by my name when walking in the door. It feels more like a family rather than a doctors office.
Describe Robert K. Hunter II's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
We are trying IUI first but if we did decide to move in to IVF, Dr. Hunter said he would only transfer one embryo for me personally. I'm a very small person and he said carrying twins would be more of a risk because of my size.

Dr Hunter presents as a professional who is focused on results, and tests. This was very helpful for us as an older couple (34,&40). Later when we were presented with Insurance issues and the decision to precede in the way our hearts desired to have a baby or the way the insurance company wanted us to have a baby. Dr Hunter was quick to advocate for our hearts... We completed the testing for egg reserve and a scrap of my lining. We were preped to start medication to prepare my body for egg retrieval and IVF for my wife but the cost and claim denials made us take a different route with my wife using IUI.

How was your experience with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Dr Hunter presents as a professional who is focused on results, and tests. This was very helpful for us as an older couple (34,&40). Later when we were presented with Insurance issues and the decision to precede in the way our hearts desired to have a baby or the way the insurance company wanted us to have a baby. Dr Hunter was quick to advocate for our hearts- he probably doesn’t know what happened in that appointment with our relationship but it was life changing to see a doctor advocating for us. Ultimately the cost made us take the path of least resistance.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Trust the journey! Couples are teams and introducing a new teammate into that relationship can sometimes be difficult. Dr Hunter will soon become your MVP just trust him with the ball
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Dr Hunter was very quickly apart of our pregnancy journey. My desire has always been to have a baby but I never wanted to carry. My wife wanted and wants to feel all the aspects of pregnancy. Our match is pretty perfect. Dr Hunter never made me feel any other way than perfectly normal with my desire.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
My instance was governed by our insurance. We completed the testing for egg reserve and a scrap of my lining. We were preped to start medication to prepare my body for egg retrieval and IVF for my wife but the cost and claim denials made us take a different route with my wife using IUI.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
From the receptionist to phlebotomist and nurses, the staff was a family and it was very apparent from our first visit on.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The moment we walked in, we felt as their goals and our goals aligned. The goal of a child was clearly at the top of everyone’s list. We have encouraged many same sex couples to see Dr Hunter over the past couple of years. Without reservation, we have told others to trust the plan of action and ask questions as they arise. No matter the news, good or bad, we always felt confidant that we were all moving in the same direction
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Our initial request was too costly and we ended up getting pregnancy by IUI which was around $7,000

Everyone in the office, including Dr Hunter knew my name. He knew exactly who I was and my specific circumstances.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We did an antagonist protocol which resulted in 8 eggs, 2 of which made it to freeze. Both were graded highly. We had a plan to do genetic testing but because we only had 2 eggs we skipped it. The first transfer was a success in that I got pregnant. We saw a heartbeat at 7 weeks but didn’t at 8. A D&C at 9 weeks determined that the egg (my own) was genetically defective. The 2nd transfer did not result in pregnancy.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kentucky Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Carol)
Carol was amazing! She dealt with the pharmacy when there were issues and answered EVERY single question I ever had, which was a lot.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
To me, the only weakness was the benefits coordinator. She is extremely nice but slow to respond to inquiries. There were times when I had to follow up multiple times before getting any response. The rest of the team is AMAZING. Angie, at the front desk, greets you by name when you walk in. Highly organized and friendly. The phlebotomist is sweet as sugar and was the only one who could get what she needed out of my tiny veins without killing me.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
The monitoring appoints were done first thing (before regular visits) and most of the time I was in and out. IVF works on your body’s schedule so sometimes there were more people than others.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Even with insurance we paid $10k out of pocket.

On our first visit we sat down and Dr Hunter went over our history in great detail and all previous information leading up to our visit. We decided that even though I had diminished ovarian reserve, I was still a candid to try monitor medicated timed intercourse with trigger shot. I was diagnosed with secondary infertility with diminished egg reserve. I went in for a baseline ultrasound before the third day of my cycle. I was then given the ok to start Fermara 5mg per day cycle days 3-5. I then was scheduled out to cycle day 10 to check for follicles. My first cycle produced two decent size follicles (both over 19) and was advised exactly what time to trigger and what days/nights to have intercourse. First cycle resulted in a negative test. My second cycle also resulted with two follicles over 19 and negative pregnancy tests. Third cycle I was upped to 10 mg Fermara cycle days 3-5. This cycle I was also given progesterone to use nightly starting two days after trigger shot. This cycle also resulted two follicles this time 20 and lining was good. This cycle also resulted in a negative test. Our fourth cycle was on track with the third cycle. At follicle check we were very surprised to see three follicles. Unfortunately, that cycle did not work. We are currently taking a break in hopes of saving money to start IVF.

Dr. Hunter is no nonsense and very knowledgeable. His clinic is communicative and he answered any questions I had. He explained our several options with us and allowed us to choose our path. He drew pictures and diagrams to ensure we knew what the next steps would be, and even decided to forego an ultrasound and save ya money, when I’d just had one for another reason very recently.

Dr. Hunter is no nonsense and very knowledgeable. His clinic is communicative and he answered any questions I had. He explained our several options with us and allowed us to choose our path. He drew pictures and diagrams to ensure we knew what the next steps would be, and even decided to forego an ultrasound and save ya money, when I’d just had one for another reason very recently.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Make sure to ask questions and do not be shy with thoughts or concerns.

Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
Our protocol was to try IUI with Femera, since I’d responded well to it in the past. I had blood work done and did Femera days 3-7. I had an ultrasound at day 12 and triggered that evening. I had my IUI 36 hours past Trigger, then took progesterone until I could test.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The staff is top notch! I cannot day enough about how kind and helpful they are. They are always smiling and go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. The phlebotomist is amazing and so incredibly sweet.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
It does take a while to get an initial appointment. Once in, they will see patients on weekends to make sure you stay on schedule. The financial side got a bit confusing, but it was all figured out in the end. Best of luck
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Everything was provided on a price sheet before you started. I believe the whole IUI was 900 without meds

Dr. Hunter was very straightforward and gave us plenty of time for questions. He laid out the various options and explained his recommendations. I felt we were given the proper information and then it was our decision to decide the best course of action. We waited approximately 10 weeks for the initial consultation....We did a medicated IUI cycle with clomid, a trigger shot and progesterone suppositories....There was no follow up after my IUI.

How was your experience with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Dr. Hunter was very straightforward and gave us plenty of time for questions. He laid out the various options and explained his recommendations. I felt we were given the proper information and then it was our decision to decide the best course of action. We waited approximately 10 weeks for the initial consultation.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Ask for detailed pricing information. We were misquoted on the cost of an IUI cycle.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute?
Interactions were very brief. There was no follow up after my IUI.
Describe the protocols Robert K. Hunter II used in your cycles at Kentucky Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We did a medicated IUI cycle with clomid, a trigger shot and progesterone suppositories.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was very friendly. I saw one nurse at every appointment, and she was the best. I saw a different nurse or NP for my scans. I remember leaving the scan right before my trigger and IUI feeling overwhelmed as I was asked if I was OK with multiples (which had never been brought up before) and given advice on the best prenatal vitamins, but had been told by the doctor our odds of conceiving with IUI were less than 10%.
Describe your experience with Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Pricing information is vague and even receipts don't detail what the charges are for. Wait times before appointments can be long. Overall the staff is very friendly and appointments go quickly once you have been called back. I often had a hard time getting a hold of someone on the phone. No one from the office ever called to follow up after my IUI.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert K. Hunter II at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
My IUI was over $1,200 with meds. I was told the IUI would be $750 and the office charged me over $900.
Describe Robert K. Hunter II's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kentucky Fertility Institute.
Not applicable for our treatment with Dr. Hunter.

Very friendly and comfortable. They have a very nice waiting room with snacks and drinks. This is great bc you will probably have to wait quite a while to get in for your appointment.

Wait times and not being able to see the actual doctor.

$700 out of pocket for an iui excluding medication.

Of all the Doctors I have seen Dr. HUNTER is by far the most thorough. He was the only one to go over my low egg reserves number (which he was reading from other Doctors' reports) and he made sure I was physically ready for my first IUI. He successfully got me pregnant on the first try. AFTER 7 FAILED IUIS. Unfortunately it ended up as a tubal pregnancy, but I am thankful he was my Doctor and caught this in time. He has been so compassionate throughout tje process.

He [Dr. Robert Hunter] was a good doctor, he seemed to know what he was doing. I felt like it was hard however for him to sympathize with what we were going through so it made me afraid to ask questions. I wanted to know that my doctor wanted to treat me but also cared about what he was treating me for.... My first cycle with him he put me on a dose of Femara and made the dose higher. My second cycle, we did an IUi. He didn’t perform the procedure, however the nurse practitioner who did was really incredible.

Billing. I was prepared to go through IVF. It took over a month to even get a total of how much it would cost. Then during that call the Billing specialist, Sasha said she was going to submit for a waiver to treat the lab as in network. 4 qqmonths later after MANY follow ups, and telling her we were just going to go elsewhere, she finally responds that as of 2 months ago they were no longer doing waivers. So I wanted 5 months of trying.

Billing was a nightmare. I got billed for things I have never been billed for (250 to thaw sperm?) And dealing with Sasha...

He [Dr. Robert Hunter] has a lot of experience and is very professional. He is kind and charismatic. Call the things by his name. He never hides any information. He is willing to answer your questions by phone if you are not with a scheduled appointment...The doctor agreed to transfer the two embryos because we always told him we wanted twins... stimulated my ovulation with hormone injection, then did ovarian puncture, fertilized them in the laboratory, and transferred them to me again. I do not have tubes. I was operated on the tubes so I need in vitro fertilization. Something like that more or less as I understand it
