He's [Dr. Karande is] informative and very patient in answering our many (silly) questions. We went through three cycles of IVF, with the third one being a success. Prior to each cycle, Dr. Karande met with us and discussed the possibilities and probabilities, giving us peace of mind in an otherwise anxiety-filled stage of our lives. After each cycle, whether successful or unsuccessful, Dr. Karande provided feedback that continue to give us hope...
The clinic and nurses [at InVia Fertility Specialists] communicates through an app, a portal. This is great because all of your documents and messages can be tracked and referenced. The down side to this is you don't always get a live person on the phone - and when you're anxious, you're wondering if the message was received... 99% of the time the nurses and clinic staff responds via phone within a 15-minute window....
How was your experience with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
Our experiences with Dr. Karande was excellent. He's informative and very patient in answering our many (silly) questions. We went through three cycles of IVF, with the third one being a success. Prior to each cycle, Dr. Karande met with us and discussed the possibilities and probabilities, giving us peace of mind in an otherwise anxiety-filled stage of our lives. After each cycle, whether successful or unsuccessful, Dr. Karande provided feedback that continue to give us hope. And hope we held onto - and now we are going to be parents for the first time thanks to Dr. Karande and his staff. I believe in miracles, I always have, even when faced with adversities and obstacles. Dr. Karande played a crucial role with his expertise in helping us hold onto that faith.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
Don't be hesitant just because he's a male doctor. We had some hesitancy too... but the man is great at his craft.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
Dr. Karande's staff is very personable. They know us by name and truly care during the process of IVF. I feel that they felt our pain and shared our joy.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at InVia Fertility Specialists.
The best nurses... the best supporting staff in any profession and not just the medical field. They really cared for our well-being and are passionate about their jobs.

I read many reviews that dr karande was blunt and had a bad bedside manner. I did not experience that. Just because he’s telling you what you don’t want to hear doesn’t make him a bad doctor. He was very direct which is what I wanted. I’ve been trying to conceive for 3 years and wanted direct no bs answers. Dr karande was very optimistic from the beginning and remained optimistic even when my reason for infertility remained unknown...
The nurses [at InVia Fertility Specialists] are the mvps, as you communicate with them so much during your treatment. Taryn was my egg retrieval nurse and was amazing. I was very anxious for the procedure and she was very calming and made me feel at ease. Nancy did my blood and ultrasounds at the crystal lake office everytime and she’s very sweet and easy to talk to...the portal system makes communicating with your doctor or nurses so easy...

He was very direct which is what I wanted. I’ve been trying to conceive for 3 years and wanted direct no bs answers.

I thought dr karande was a very personable and caring doctor and I am glad that my insurance chose him.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
Do whatever this man tells you to do. Trust his guidance. I’ve had success on my first ivf transfer because I trusted his guidance and did what he asked of me.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
the clinic has a very large base and it’s a fine tuned machine when it comes to getting patients in and out. when my doctor saw me in person in passing, he immediately knew who I was which was important to me since many appointments were done via zoom.
Describe the protocols Vishvanath C. Karande used in your cycles at InVia Fertility Specialists and their degree of success.
My insurance required 3 iui before we moved to Ivf. He was very open and honest that the likelihood of success with one blocked tube was small. We still gave it our best shot but they failed. Our first and only egg retrieval went as well as it could for us. Dr karande didnt over stimulate me and I had a great recovery. We ended up with 3 normal embryos which was perfect. I did not want an over abundance of embryos as I didn’t feel right if I had to dispose of many of them. I think everything was done perfectly. Our transfer was performed about 6 weeks later and it was successful. I cannot thank dr karande enough for helping me build my family
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at InVia Fertility Specialists.
The nurses are the mvps, as you communicate with them so much during your treatment. Taryn was my egg retrieval nurse and was amazing. I was very anxious for the procedure and she was very calming and made me feel at ease. Nancy did my blood and ultrasounds at the crystal lake office everytime and she’s very sweet and easy to talk to. Sad that I didn’t get to say goodbye to her
Describe your experience with InVia Fertility Specialists.
Strengths- the portal system makes communicating with your doctor or nurses so easy. I will miss that as there were many times I messaged nursing with questions and they reply within 30 mins many times. I can’t say enough good things about the nurses I’ve dealt with. Early appointment times were a perk too along with having a clinic 5 mins from my home for quick bloodwork and ultrasound appointments. Weaknesses- Hoffman estates office is busy. Several of my appointments at that office were delayed substantially. I was told I couldn’t bring my 3 year old toddler to my appointments so I have to pay a babysitter. When appointments run off schedule, it would create issues with my limited childcare. One of my appointments was 50 minutes behind. Just be prepared with Hoffman that your appointments might not be on time sometimes also with no apology. I wouldn’t have minded so much if they were at least apologetic.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at InVia Fertility Specialists.
At the crystal lake office, several times I’d walk in the door and Nancy would be calling me back already before I could sit down. She’s a one woman show at the crystal lake office and she’s a rockstar
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists.
I had amazing insurance coverage. Each iui, egg retrieval, and fet was a $20 copay. Anytime I had an appointment with the dr I also paid $20. I am incredibly lucky
Describe Vishvanath C. Karande's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at InVia Fertility Specialists.
Dr karande only does single embryo transfers.

He [Dr. Karande] is a warm person. He cares deeply and makes an effort to give the best possible care with a friendly demeanor....let him know if you have budgetary concerns. He is very much willing to see what programs you can participate in, if any, to offset costs...We worked with one embryo at a time...we were hesitant about knowing the gender of the embryo to be transferred but ultimately decided against it because there would've been a genetic testing fee...
She [nurse at InVia Fertility Specialists] was fantastic to work with week over week. She kept me in good spirits and knew what I needed when I needed it...their fertility app did not work well with my android phone. I was unable to download some of the pdf files but they were willing to assist if/when I called while I was at a testing site and needed them to forward lab requests for a blood draw. Also, I sometimes would find it a little tricky to find the letter or lab request they posted to the site, but once again, they were helpful if/when I called...
How was your experience with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
He is a great Dr. We worked with him and were able to conceive our 2 sons. For the second pregnancy, we were hesitant about knowing the gender of the embryo to be transferred but ultimately decided against it because there would've been a genetic testing fee. I had great experiences both times. For the first time, I was mostly in the Hoffman Estates office and for the 2nd time, I was most in Crystal Lake. I experienced extreme congestion my second pregnancy and that put a damper on things but otherwise a good experience.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
Be open and honest about what you are looking for in regards to best case scenario and let him know if you have budgetary concerns. He is very much willing to see what programs you can participate in, if any, to offset costs.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
He is a warm person. He cares deeply and makes an effort to give the best possible care with a friendly demeanor.
Describe the protocols Vishvanath C. Karande used in your cycles at InVia Fertility Specialists and their degree of success.
There were videos posted online that were helpful to follow in terms of administration of medication. Some medications were generic versions of more popular drugs and that helped tremendously to reduce costs, but usually were a little more difficult to administer. Since I had embryos frozen from my first IVF, the second treatment was ensuring I increased my hormone levels to where they needed to be, then I was able to do IUI, and take progesterone to maintain the pregnancy for the first 10 weeks.
Describe your experience with your nurse at InVia Fertility Specialists. (Assigned nurse: Nancy)
She was fantastic to work with week over week. She kept me in good spirits and knew what I needed when I needed it.
Describe your experience with InVia Fertility Specialists.
The clinic is good at assessing where you are at. Be open about what you are looking for and set boundaries as needed related to visits at your preferred location and budgetary constraints. I think that this entire process requires patience and it is helpful to have outside support in addition to the support you receive at the clinic. Also, their fertility app did not work well with my android phone. I was unable to download some of the pdf files but they were willing to assist if/when I called while I was at a testing site and needed them to forward lab requests for a blood draw. Also, I sometimes would find it a little tricky to find the letter or lab request they posted to the site, but once again, they were helpful if/when I called. I could have avoided this by logging in and printing the items from my home laptop/printer but I think the whole point of the app is convenience so hopefully they can update it in the future to work better with android phones.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists.
I was involved in a study the first time so costs were limited. I paid mostly for anesthesia. The second time was insurance was used and I paid out of pocket for ART, assistive reproductive technology that helps improve the chances of pregnancy. I also paid for drugs some times out of pocket. I estimate about $600 the first time and $3000 out of pocket the second time.
Describe Vishvanath C. Karande's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at InVia Fertility Specialists.
Multiple pregnancies are dangerous. We worked with one embryo at a time.
What specific things went wrong at InVia Fertility Specialists?
  • Failed to send your chart to another clinic
Describe the specific things that went wrong at InVia Fertility Specialists.
As I was transferring over to my Ob/gyne after conceiving, there was a little difficulty getting my Invia paperwork faxed over. They provided me a printed version and I requested they also fax it directly. The receiving Ob/gyne said they did not receive the fax so we ultimately went with the printed version I received.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
While completing our forms in the waiting area at our very first initial consultation, Dr. Karande personally came out, welcomed both my husband and I...and told us “Welcome to our family. We are so happy to have you.” It felt like coming home...was present during my initial ultrasound and started explaining everything he was seeing...he also wrote everything down and drew pictures so that we could have a recollection of what we talked about at home...His response was “We’ll get you your twins, but one at a time,” meaning he preferred a single transfer
The nurses at [InVia Fertility Specialists] were kind, compassionate, respectful, and gentle...they made sure to connect with us on a personal level...It is very clean, but not in the sense that you’re sitting in a sterile doctor’s office (although I’m sure it is), but decorated like home. Imagine a cork board loaded with pictures of babies and thank you notes, end tables with baskets of snacks, comfy chairs, and an ambience of hope...billing specialist communicated with me that although treatment will most likely be denied, the would still be happy to submit claims on our behalf just in case of potential coverage
How was your experience with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
Not only were we welcomed with open arms at our first visit, but Dr. Karande was present during my initial ultrasound and started explaining everything he was seeing, which gave us a huge piece of mind rather than having to question the black and white images on the screen. Afterwards, during the consultation, not only did he verbally talk about my diagnosis and treatment plan, but he also wrote everything down and drew pictures so that we could have a recollection of what we talked about at home for our reference. In the conversation he included treatment options, statistics, and benefits/risks. Throughout such a heavy conversation, he personality shined through, particularly his level of expertise and sense of humor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
If someone is considering seeing Dr. Karande, I would say you will not be disappointed. We never felt rushed, left with every question answered, and are eager to begin our journey fertility treatments.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?

Describe the protocols Vishvanath C. Karande used in your cycles at InVia Fertility Specialists and their degree of success.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at InVia Fertility Specialists.
The nurses at InVia were kind, compassionate, respectful, and gentle. Even in a short period of time, they made sure to connect with us on a personal level.
Describe your experience with InVia Fertility Specialists.
Walking into InVia for the first time I was impressed. It is very clean, but not in the sense that you’re sitting in a sterile doctor’s office (although I’m sure it is), but decorated like home. Imagine a cork board loaded with pictures of babies and thank you notes, end tables with baskets of snacks, comfy chairs, and an ambience of hope.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists.
I have only completed an initial consultation and diagnostic testing so far. Treatment options ranged greatly, and unfortunately I do not recall specific costs. My insurance company does not provide coverage for any infertility treatments so everything we decide will be paid out of pocket. InVia’s billing specialist communicated with me that although treatment will most likely be denied, the would still be happy to submit claims on our behalf just in case of potential coverage.
Describe Vishvanath C. Karande's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at InVia Fertility Specialists.
At the initial consultation, I had mentioned I would love to have twins (in a completely made up ideal world). His response was “We’ll get you your twins, but one at a time,” meaning he preferred a single transfer. He described it is much lower risk for both mother and baby.

Dr. Karande got us pregnant on our first transfer. We were allowed a “natural” transfer which made the entire process much more relaxing. Dr. Karande is very skilled and knowledgeable...explained every step of the process to us and was very receptive to our feedback. We felt our experience was customized to fit our needs...I am thankful that Dr. Karande understands the risks of multiples and did not just to implanting 2 embryos.
I am so thrilled we chose Invia...Sheila, who is in the northbrook office, is a total angel. Her ultrasounds were always thorough. I never left her office feeling like I needed more information...The nursing staff was okay...It seems like the nurses don’t always check their information with the doctors...We had multiple issues dealing with billing which at one point threatened to delay an egg retrieval cycle.

Dr. Karande got us pregnant on our first transfer. We were allowed a “natural” transfer which made the entire process much more relaxing. Dr. Karande is very skilled and knowledgeable. We live in the northern suburbs so it was a relief to find out that I could go to their Northbrook satellite location for monitoring.

Describe the protocols Vishvanath C. Karande used in your cycles at InVia Fertility Specialists and their degree of success.
I was given menopur, follistim, ganirelix and triggered with Pregnyl. I was not on any medication for my natural transfer except an HCG trigger and then I started endometrin suppositories post-transfer.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at InVia Fertility Specialists.
The nursing staff was okay. They followed up with me quickly and provided clear directions. A few times they gave me inaccurate information and even told me I had to delay my transfer. On occasion, when I didn’t get the answers from the nurses that I wanted/expected I would reach out directly to Dr. Karande and his answers would be completely different and much more in line with our expectations. It seems like the nurses don’t always check their information with the doctors.

  • Failed to call with results

Describe the specific things that went wrong at InVia Fertility Specialists.
We had multiple issues dealing with billing which at one point threatened to delay an egg retrieval cycle. It seems like the billing department relies heavily on the patients to contact insurance which, in my experience, is usually actually the job of the billing department. there was also an occasion where the nursing staff told me I would have to delay my transfer. Upon reaching out to Dr. Karande (at the dismay of the nursing staff) he made the transfer work on the timeline we had discussed.

The doctor [Dr. Karande] was very helpful thru the entire process. ... He was answering all my questions, even some obvious or stupid :). ... I don’t remember the exact doses, but for my egg retrieval I’ve been taking Follistim and Menopur for about 8-9 days, I was having a lot of eggs, so in order to prevent OHSS, the doctor put me on Cabergoline(not sure if I spell it right) ... Even though I had 2 failed IuIs and 1 failed frozen transfer, she [sic] kinda assured me that I will get pregnant sooner or later.
The thing that I most like is that they [InVia Fertility Specialists] open at 6:30 am for monitoring, so it was very easy to get appts before 7 am and then be on time for work. A very big plus is that they are open for monitoring 365 days a year, which not many clinics do. So you can have a egg retrieval on Thanksgiving or Christmas if it has to. ... All the nurse staff was great. No complaints at all. They always answered all my questions, even twice after hours.

As I stated before, they have a very convenient monitoring schedule starting at 6:30 am each morning 7 days a week. I’ve been to tens appt for monitoring, and they are usually very quick, about 10 minutes for ultrasound and blood work.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists.
Everything was covered by my insurance except the PGS testing that was $3500 for 8 embryos and the freezing storage (if I am not mistaking, my husband paid) it was like $1000 a year plus $50 monthly

Dr. Karande is extremely knowledgeable and very patient to re-explain and provide more details when asked. He provides an excellent consultation and checked in along the way...I felt he had a good pulse on our goals and wants with this process...Personalized individual zoom appointments, visuals to accompany all discussions and options. Opportunity to ask any questions I had along the way.
I appreciated the communication platform the clinic [InVia Fertility Specialists] uses to manage messages, lab results, and appointments. I felt like I was informed throughout the entire process.

Dr. Karande is very direct and to the point. He is a doctor that will tell it to you straight and professionally. He is very much about the clinical side of everything but is capable of cracking a joke and putting a smile on your face...Although you don't spend much time with the Dr himself, his eyes and ears are on everything. He works from behind the scenes during your active treatments and trusts his team
[At InVia] Typically don't have to wait long from your appointment time to be seen and out of there. Earlier appointments tend to go faster, if you're ever concerned or experiencing something strange don't hesitate to send a portal message to the nurses who will respond ASAP or follow up with the DR... i had a portal message after my weekly ultrasound and opened to read a message stating they were sorry but my pregnancy was lost. I was very upset to receive that information that way...I don't believe this is typical of this clinic
How was your experience with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
Dr. Karande is very direct and to the point. He is a doctor that will tell it to you straight and professionally. He is very much about the clinical side of everything but is capable of cracking a joke and putting a smile on your face. He always explained everything to me in the appointments i had with him very thoroughly making sure i understood. Would explain exactly how a procedure would work from beginning to end and how every medication would work and any reactions they could potentially cause. I always felt safe in his care as it is obviously he has done this over and over again with many different patients in all kinds of situations. He is open to input and discussion in treatment plans.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
Although you don't spend much time with the Dr himself, his eyes and ears are on everything. He works from behind the scenes during your active treatments and trusts his team (who are amazing) to provide the care. Trust the process!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
The whole team at the clinic were very personable. Nurses ended up feeling like my friends rather than a medical team. I always knew i could message or call and someone would answer my questions or alleviate my stresses.
Describe the protocols Vishvanath C. Karande used in your cycles at InVia Fertility Specialists and their degree of success.
I was placed onto Cabergoline to treat high prolactin levels prior to starting any treatments. I had 3 IUI cycles and protocol was the same for all 3. Letrozole CD 5-9, and active monitoring from CD 10 every other day with bloods and ultrasound until follicles were large enough (DR prefers over 20mm) before triggering with 10,000 HCG injection. Following 2 days would have IUI procedures back to back from husbands washed sperm and was given all the information and signed off prior to procedure. Resulted in 1 pregnancy ending in miscarriage and 2 negative tests. Was starting IVF cycle which would of been an all freeze due to PCOS and his concern ovaries would hyperstimulate into OHSS. But had spontaneous pregnancy prior to starting my stims.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at InVia Fertility Specialists.
Nurses are phenomenal, absolutely fantastic i can't think of a bad thing to say. They are so compassionate and caring and professional, they make you feel like a dear friend coming to visit. They are very informative and will go above and beyond to make sure you're comfortable and aware of anything happening. They will answer all your questions no matter how small or silly you might feel they are with no judgement. They are your cheerleaders on every treatment cycle!
Describe your experience with InVia Fertility Specialists.
The clinic is very well run. They adapted amazingly during covid and kept the practice safe for all. There was a moment in time where it felt like there wasn't enough staff to cover the amount of patients but that seems to have fixed itself in recent months. Typically don't have to wait long from your appointment time to be seen and out of there. Earlier appointments tend to go faster, if you're ever concerned or experiencing something strange don't hesitate to send a portal message to the nurses who will respond ASAP or follow up with the DR. They will always make time for you to be seen or talk to you to make sure everything is going as planned.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists.
This is tough.. All depends on insurance. IUI Cycles were typically $1,000.00 cost to me until deductible was met. The billing department would be best to contact for pricing, they will give quotes.
Describe Vishvanath C. Karande's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at InVia Fertility Specialists.
I was told Dr Karande transfers one embryo per transfer to obtain pregnancy. But do not know if that changes based on prognosis.
What specific things went wrong at InVia Fertility Specialists?
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at InVia Fertility Specialists.
I wouldn't say gone wrong. When i experienced my miscarriage i was working and wasn't available on my phone. I saw my normal message stating i had a portal message after my weekly ultrasound and opened to read a message stating they were sorry but my pregnancy was lost. I was very upset to receive that information that way but as it was explained to me not typical procedure and they believed i had already been talked to by the doctor which i hadn't. Dr called me and apologized profusely for the miscommunication and explained to me that embryo was not growing as expected and heart beat was not showing when it should be seen (6 weeks 4 days) He told me while most likely was going to be nonviable he wanted to give baby a chance and had me come for a follow up 4 days later which confirmed no heartbeat. I don't believe this is typical of this clinic and would not want someone else to be afraid of this same scenario. Overall my experience here was amazing

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
The first thing they [InVia Fertility Specialists] did at my appointment was an ultrasound. Before we started the tech told me that Dr. Karande would come in at some point to look at the screen himself. ... He told me that how many embryos to be transferred would be up to me because I only have one shot at IVF due to my egg count being extremely low. ... He explained to me that my left ovary was diminished almost completely and he didn't think that we would be able to get any eggs from it.
It seems that the clinic [InVia Fert Spec] is separated into different departments. You have the receptionist who can answer all the basic questions. The nurse who can answer the medical and test questions. The billing department that helps you understand the cost and if you have any questions about the bill. The doctor who can tell you anything you want to know, except the exact price of tests or medicines.
How was your experience with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
The first thing they did at my appointment was an ultrasound. Before we started the tech told me that Dr. Karande would come in at some point to look at the screen himself. When he did come in, he looked at it and started to explain to me what we were looking at. There was a screen on the wall for me to look at too. Then after he left I cleaned off and was escorted to his office to discuss everything. I gave him my full medical history, which is extremely long, and then he told me what he seen on the ultrasound. He explained to me that my left ovary was diminished almost completely and he didn't think that we would be able to get any eggs from it. As he was explaining things to me, he was drawing on a paper to show me visually and also writing down all the big words he was saying that he figured I would want to look up later. After he went over my condition, he went on to talk about what he wants to do. As he was talking about the different steps of the IVF procedure he also was drawing a graph on the same sheet of paper with the timelines. Then he asked if I had any questions, but I didn't have any because he thoroughly explained to me everything. Then he mentioned to me the different pricing for each part of the treatment. How the IVF treatment would be one price, anesthesia would be separate, medications, and the pretesting. When I started to tear up (which was a couple of times during our talk), he would stop, hand me a tissue, and console me. My husband wasn't able to be at the appointment with me, but Dr. Karande definitely helped make it easier on me.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
Be ready to go because Dr. Karande is ready to start your treatment from the day you walk into his office.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
When I walked in for my consultation appointment the receptionist asked me for my name. After I told her, she responded with "I'm so glad to have a face to go with the voice, I'm the one who you talked to when we set up your appointment." Everyone at the office only called me by my first name or Mrs., and everyone there is super friendly and caring. When some of the staff found out that I would be a cash patient due to my insurance not covering the treatments, they started calling the specialty pharmacies to see who had the lower prices for the medications that I would need. They also told me all of the different options on getting donated medications, how to get the tests done for cheaper, and all the information I would need for grants. They made me feel like they wanted to help me as much as possible.
Describe the protocols Vishvanath C. Karande used in your cycles at InVia Fertility Specialists and their degree of success.
I'm still in the beginning stages of my IVF. I haven't even finished my pretests yet.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at InVia Fertility Specialists.
After my meeting with the doctor, he told me that he was going to walk me to the nurses so they could go over pricing of tests and medications. He introduced me to a nurse and we sat down and talked about my situation. She seemed extremely sympathetic to my situation. She told me that she'll call up the specialty pharmacies to see if she can get medication donated or lower prices for me. She then gave me the list of the tests that I would need to have done prior to starting treatment. She highlighted the ones that were required. She advised me to call around and see what prices they would quote me to do these tests just in case I could find a cheaper lab.
Describe your experience with InVia Fertility Specialists.
It seems that the clinic is separated into different departments. You have the receptionist who can answer all the basic questions. The nurse who can answer the medical and test questions. The billing department that helps you understand the cost and if you have any questions about the bill. The doctor who can tell you anything you want to know, except the exact price of tests or medicines. This can be both a strength and weakness. I say this because it's a strength since everyone is a master at their position, but it's a weakness when someone has left early and no one else is there to answer your question. Otherwise the clinic is relaxing, clean, and made me feel comfortable.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists.
Since I only have enough eggs to do one round of IVF my costs can be different from someone else's cost. For the IVF treatment it is $10,000. For the anesthesia to retrieve the eggs it is $650. Medications can cost up to $6,000. Pretesting can cost up to $2,000. ICSI is $2,100. AZH is $1,050.
Describe Vishvanath C. Karande's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at InVia Fertility Specialists.
He told me that how many embryos to be transferred would be up to me because I only have one shot at IVF due to my egg count being extremely low. He said when the time comes, he'll let me know all the different options, the benefits, and the disadvantages to each one. I know if I am lucky to have 2 healthy embryos for transfer that I will definitely have both of them, but if there are more well then I'll need his guidance.

Dr [Vishvanath] Karande was straight to the point and very informative. The date my transfer was set was not on a day he was going to be in the location I was having the transfer but he made it to my appointment and did my transfer and I appreciate that so much...1mg estrogen pills twice a day. 1 progesterone in oil injection a day. Suppositories 3 times a day...all amazing. Never felt like a number...
[The nurses at InVia Fertility Specialists were] Great and quick. I was always in and out for bloodwork. They were always happy and fun to be around...It’s a great clinic with great people who have done this more than thousands of times...Weakness: none...I live a couple hours from the clinic. They were always reasonable with the time they needed me there and the staff and doctors were all amazing. Never felt like a number

What specific things went wrong at InVia Fertility Specialists?
  • Lost paperwork
Describe the specific things that went wrong at InVia Fertility Specialists.
I had donated embryos and they couldn’t find the paperwork stating nothing was wrong with them and all the proper testing had been done. They almost weren’t accepted but since I have a child from the specific embryos already - they took the frozen ones, then found the paperwork. It was all going to work out, it was just a scary few minutes.

Dr. Karande was profesional from the first time I met with him and he gave me hopes of geting pregnant. He knew exactly why I couldn’t get pregnant from my first visit...Dr. Karande gave me some pills, (forgot the name) to ovulate. After that I had to go get ultrasounds to see if my follicles were growing and when there was a mature follicle, I had to do a trigger shot. 36 hours after trigger shot I went in for IUI. 10 days after I had to go get an hcg test to see if I was pregnant. The test came out positive and then I had to do vaginal progesterone pills.
The nurses [at Invia Fertility Specialists] are very nice and helpful. They always made me feel comfortable and their hours for my ultrasounds and blood work worked with my working hours. They were able to take care of me before 7 a.m...She [nurse] is awesome, always had a smile. She was very helpful.

My husband and I give Dr. Karande 5 stars! After trying to conceive for over two years we were referred to Dr. Karande by my OB/Gyn. He explained every possible cause for our lack of success and guided us through every test and procedure in order to get some answers. After it was determined that our best chance at conception was IVF, Dr. Karande explained in great detail our estimated costs, timeline, and answered all of the questions we had.
When we decided to go through with IVF, I received regular communication from the staff [at InVia Fertility Specialists] with clear instructions on what my next steps were until my next appointment. Any questions that I had I could either call or message them in their patient portal and I would get prompt responses. After completing all of the necessary steps, I am now 11 weeks pregnant! I look forward to working with Dr. Karande and his exceptional staff in the future for baby number two!

At our initial consult Dr. Karande took the time to explain the process moving forward. He was always very straight forward with us (which I greatly appreciated). ...

Describe the protocols Vishvanath C. Karande used in your cycles at InVia Fertility Specialists and their degree of success.
We attempted one egg retrieval cycle with typical medications/dosages and did not gain any viable embryos after PGS testing.

The third cycle yielded three viable, five day embryos (PGS tested).

Dr. Karande worked with us through every condition my wife had and gave us many options to try and always explained everything in great detail. We truly appreciated his recommendations. ... We were patients for a long time almost 8 years and we felt as if we truly knew him like a friend. We had many successful pregnancies but some of them just didn't last and we knew that wasn't his fault. He adjusted our process many times and always came up with new options to help us.
The clinic [InVia Fertility Specialists] is extremely organized, clean and everyone was extremely helpful. It was easy to get to, comfortable waiting rooms and overall just felt like a great environment. ... We were lucky to have many great nurses. Kim was the one consistent nurse throughout our 7 years. She treated us like family and even up to the day we left we felt like she was totally a part of the journey with us. They have many great nurses and members of their staff but Kim was with us the entire time.
How was your experience with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
Dr. Karande was always very thorough. We were patients for a long time almost 8 years and we felt as if we truly knew him like a friend. We had many successful pregnancies but some of them just didn't last and we knew that wasn't his fault. He adjusted our process many times and always came up with new options to help us. We have one daughter and in a week are about to welcome our second child a boy. We couldn't have done it without his help!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
I would say don't be afraid to ask questions if you don't understand. He is extremely knowledgeable and after working with him for a little bit we understand exactly what he was doing and how he wanted us to get pregnant. I appreciated him getting right to the point and managing our expectations.

feel that Dr. Karande is a very thorough and straight-forward doctor....I knew what was expected of me during my journey which included weight-loss. I followed his protocol and feel that is the reason why I experienced success with my retrieval and even with my transfers...For my egg retrieval, I believe my treatment strategy was an IVF antagonist protocol.... I don't know what the other patients plans were, but I feel like mines was tailored to my diagnosis.
The clinic [InVia] is very strong. The staff work together well, they are there for the patients and they are very well informed about what they do...I love the nursing staff. They were like a personal cheer squad. ... I also feel like I was greeted by name whenever I interacted with staff, even upon checking in at the front desk. The clinic truly felt like a 2nd home...The whole staff is very motivational and it is appreciated...I love this clinic and their attentiveness to their patients and have no suggestions on how they could improve such great care!
How was your experience with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
I feel that Dr. Karande is a very thorough and straight-forward doctor. In his field, it is important to be honest with patients about their diagnosis and treatment plan. I also feel it is important to give patients realistic goals to achieve during the IVF/FET process. I knew what was expected of me during my journey which included weight-loss. I followed his protocol and feel that is the reason why I experienced success with my retrieval and even with my transfers. Although two resulted in a chemical pregnancy/miscarriage, Dr. Karande never made it seem like hope was lost.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
I would tell a future patient to go into the clinic after exhausting yourself with knowledge about infertility and possibly her or her partner's specific diagnosis of infertility. It is helpful to know what questions to ask at the initial consult with the doctor and makes a more informed patient. Also, be honest about your medical history. At this stage, there is no hiding from your past. It gets very real and very honest.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
I felt like I was treated like a human. I don't know what the other patients plans were, but I feel like mines was tailored to my diagnosis. I also feel like I was greeted by name whenever I interacted with staff, even upon checking in at the front desk. The clinic truly felt like a 2nd home.
Describe the protocols Vishvanath C. Karande used in your cycles at InVia Fertility Specialists and their degree of success.
For my egg retrieval, I believe my treatment strategy was an IVF antagonist protocol. I did 10 days of estrogen priming (CD21-CD4), 12 days of injectable stims for ovarian stimulation (CD5-CD16) menopur 225u/follistim 225u (SD1-4), menopur 300u/follistim 300u (SD5-12), ganirelix 0.25mg (SD7-11) to suppress ovulation, Pregnyl HcG trigger shot 10,000u. We retrieved 18 eggs, 10 initially fertilized, 4 (4aa) blastocyst made it to day 5. We prepped for a fresh single embryo transfer. I did 5 days of antibiotics post retrieval, 5 days of Medrol in preparation for transfer, and started crinone vaginal progesterone support to prepare my lining for embryo transfer/implantation.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at InVia Fertility Specialists.
I love the nursing staff. They were like a personal cheer squad. I appreciate their attentiveness and basically just being the good spirits I needed when I experienced my losses. The whole staff is very motivational and it is appreciated.
Describe your experience with InVia Fertility Specialists.
The clinic is very strong. The staff work together well, they are there for the patients and they are very well informed about what they do. It is definitely different from getting care at my Primary Care doctor's office of OBGYN's office. I love this clinic and their attentiveness to their patients and have no suggestions on how they could improve such great care!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists.
My IVF and FET procedures including medications were covered by insurance. I only had to pay a $35 copay when interacting with the doctor and my storage fees and initial cost for my frozen embryos.
Describe Vishvanath C. Karande's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at InVia Fertility Specialists.
I fully understand the recommendation to transfer a single embryo and that is the protocol I followed.

Although Dr. Karande was straightforward, he understood that our goal was to get pregnant and have a baby as soon as possible and scheduled treatment on my body’s schedule and not on his clinics schedule....Dr. Karande was very knowledgeable, confident, and straight forward throughout the process which is exactly what I wanted and needed going through this emotional journey. He was very thorough in re- evaluating me prior to starting treatment despite receiving my previous records. His technique(HSG & transfer) was much better
I have nothing but positive things to say about this clinic. They complete all procedures at the office, have a portal where most communication occurs and they respond very quickly to any questions you have. This includes nurses, doctors, and the embryologists....Nursing staff always responded quickly to the portal. When I had a bleeding scare early on during pregnancy and messaged the portal, they quickly called to determine the cause and eliminate my concerns and fears.
How was your experience with Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
I recently gave birth to my daughter after failing to get pregnant naturally and going through 3 failed transfers with a precious specialist. Making the switch to Invia was invaluable. Dr. Karande was very knowledgeable, confident, and straight forward throughout the process which is exactly what I wanted and needed going through this emotional journey. He was very thorough in re- evaluating me prior to starting treatment despite receiving my previous records. His technique(HSG & transfer) was much better than my previous provider and everything felt very different. Dr Klipstien completed my retrieval. It was great that they completed everything in their office and that my cycle was scheduled around my body’s cycle not their schedule which is why procedures can be completed by either doctor. I have and will recommend Dr. Karande to friends struggling with infertility.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vishvanath C. Karande at InVia Fertility Specialists?
He is very straight forward but had amazing results.

Describe the protocols Vishvanath C. Karande used in your cycles at InVia Fertility Specialists and their degree of success.
I was on the estrace priming protocol. I never used birth control which I was very pleased with. The protocol was a bit long but it all paid off. We genetically tested the embryos and were able to pick the embryo we wanted transferred which we decided to transfer the embryo that had the best ratings.

I had BCBS HMO and it wascovered almost 100% by insuarance. Genetic testing was not covered and cost us approximately $6,000. I was very lucky.
Describe Vishvanath C. Karande's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at InVia Fertility Specialists.

I had to wait 6 months after a partial molar pregnancy before going through IVF [with Dr. Vishvanath Karande], I suggested doing the retrievals during that time. Dr. Karande was on board...Dr. Karande was open about the process, explained every step and was supportive during my miscarriage. He was at multiple ultra sounds, checked in when he saw me, even if I was just doing blood work, and performed every procedure himself. I felt comfortable with him and his staff and completed supported the year I was in his care.
The receptionists [at InVia Fertility Specialists] were personable, the nurses were all outgoing and remembered you, and everyone explained everything I needed to know. I was very pleased with the overall facility and all the individuals...I was always seen in a timely manner...Everyone of the nurses I worked with was passionate about their job, invested in my care, and super easy to work with.

I had to wait 6 months after a partial molar pregnancy before going through IVF, I suggested doing the retrievals during that time. Dr. Karande was on board. I was on clomid and 1 HCG trigger for my IUI's. I used menopur and follistrom and added gonal-f for both retrievals. I then was on Estrace and progesterone suppositories (3months) as well as progesterone injections (1 month) during the transfer/IVF.

After the first miscarriage, my wife and I have been trying for 1.5 years without successful. Then we was referred to Dr. Karande by our Obgyn. And thanks to their efforts and expertise (and the super helpful patient portal) helped us through the craziness of 3 IUIs and then 2 IVFs. We are expecting in May 11th. Thanks Dr. Karande and Invia Fertility staff.
The patient portal is really good, all the communication [at InVia-Hoffman Estates] happens there help both of us know what is going on. Making appointment is also super easy. The staff answers our questions/voicemail within 4-6 hours, day or night.... They [the nursing staff] are available all the time, even late evening to get back to our questions

I felt like dr karande new what I wanted before I even voiced my opinion and was very open to listening to what I wanted and adjusting our medical plan accordingly. He was very upfront with information and potential risk (which one did occur) and it kept me prepared.... We did IUI after having problems with clomid and my general OBs lack of info. After 3 failed attempts he offered to try more or put IVF on the table. I knew going into the meeting I wanted to move forward with IVF. He was very informative and gave me lots of articles to rea. He warned me that with my AMH levels being so high that he wanted to do a freeze all because I would most likely going to get ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome ( and I did). He gave me statistics and percentages for 1and 2 embryos transfers and gave me reading on complications from multiple births but we still wanted to transfer 2
I loved them [InVia Fertility Specialists-Hoffman Estates]. The entire staff is friendly and don’t make you feel uncomfortable. They are more then willing to answer any questions you have. Only mild complaint is There were some days I couldn’t get as early as an appointment as I needed but 90% of the time it was the earliest slot... He presented us with stats and left it up to us to deside. We chose to transfer 2
