Attention to Detail

Attention to detail is on a 1 - 10 scale, and is scored based on the rate, and severity, of errors committed by the clinic according to the patients.

For example, a severe error might be failing to inform a patient of critical information, while a small error might be failing to call a patient with results.

CDC Success Rates

This is the most recent data from the CDC. The CDC cautions that it should not be used to compare doctors and clinics. This data represents the outcomes of IVF cycles when using a person's own eggs.

For more information please see our FAQs.

Where you see a “?” on the chart, a clinic has done fewer than 20 cycles in this category and age range, so the CDC says showing percentages from this small data set would be misleading and unreliable.

Dr Cohen is the most caring physician I have worked with, including all specialties...His level of detail, and desire to help you makes him the best candidate for any fertility needs. He truly cares about his patients...We went to ICSI IVF due to MFI. We had failed IUI's, which was expected and basically to appease insurance. IVF was a success, 5 embryos total, 1 transferred for my first pregnancy resulting in a live birth, and he performed an FET for my second (one embryo) resulting in a current pregnancy.
[The nurses at Institute for Human Reproduction] Forgot to call in my meds. Was Olgas [nurse] fault...Olga is difficult to work with. The coordinator was new, so I understood there were some difficulties there, but Olga was truly the unpleasant, difficult person in the office...We went to ICSI IVF due to MFI.

Dr. Tur-Kaspa reassured me that he would get us pregnant. He was always very upbeat on the days of transfer which made me feel more at ease of the process. I was able to speak to him candidly about my concerns and he listened and did what I wanted. He never told us no...Be an advocate for yourself, he will listen to what you want...Everyone in the office is nice. Dr. Tur-Kaspa is very nice and reassuring of getting you pregnant...
The monitoring [at IHR - Chicago] is done as a first come first serve basis. In order to be seen quickly you should be there as early as 6:20 to be 1st through 3rd in line so you can get to work on time...The nurses were always very helpful. They were available to help and answer any questions. They were also very gentle when drawing blood or when I needed an ultrasound. Always open to answer any questions...

I have no idea what is going on at that office, what the steps are.

Dr. Tur-Kaspa was direct, humorous and very uplifting. I would definitely recommend using IHR if you are struggling with infertility. I enjoyed going to this fertility clinic because it was small.
I came to IHR [Institute for Human Reproduction] after going to another clinic. IHR is a small clinic so the staff and doctor really get to know you as we person.. There was only one nurse at this clinic and she always remembered me and remembered things we had talked about at previous appointments.

[Dr. Mary] Wood-Molo was on time to our first consultation...it was remote...Before any new procedure we would have a consultation and go over treatment together...was available to chat about concerns and she was so hopeful...Would only transfer one embryo during a cycle. Did not want to increase the risks of multiple births
[Institute for Human Reproduction] doesn’t make you seem like a number...walk you through any procedure and make sure you’re comfortable...nursing staff has been on the patient side of this so it’s comforting to know you aren’t alone. Weakness- with the timeliness of a lot of treatments (drug injections, etc) I feel like a little pro activity to ensure meds are on hand could be welcomed
How was your experience with Mary Wood Molo at Institute for Human Reproduction?
Wood-Molo was on time to our first consultation. Although it was remote this actually worked better for my work schedule. Before any new procedure we would have a consultation and go over treatment together. She was available to chat about concerns and she was so hopeful saying things like “I will get you pregnant” and “you’ll be a great mom”
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Mary Wood Molo at Institute for Human Reproduction?
Know how aggressive you want to be with fertility treatments
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mary Wood Molo at Institute for Human Reproduction?
When I met doctor wood-molo I stated I was concerned about feeling like a number and not seen as a patient. She was compassionate and thorough from initial consultation through 3 years of treatments onward.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Institute for Human Reproduction.
I followed Dr Wood-Molo from Rush Hospital to IHR (a private practice) and although some nursing staff came along, the overall quality improved. The nurses would leave a message in the portal with next steps after the doctor reviews the ultrasound and blood work.
Describe your experience with Institute for Human Reproduction.
Clinic doesn’t make you seem like a number. They walk you through any procedure and make sure you’re comfortable. I think some of the nursing staff has been on the patient side of this so it’s comforting to know you aren’t alone. Weakness- with the timeliness of a lot of treatments (drug injections, etc) I feel like a little pro activity to ensure meds are on hand could be welcomed. I was often stressed trying to get my specialty drug shipped overnight.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Mary Wood Molo at Institute for Human Reproduction.
IHR was a center of excellence so insurance liked them more than other places. I maxed out my benefits after 5 IUI, 1 egg retinal and 2 FETs

I felt like we shared the same goal and he was genuinely happy and excited with our success.

How was your experience with Ilan Tur-Kaspa at Institute for Human Reproduction?
I am writing this review as my six week old baby boy is napping in his bassinet. My fertility journey started off at a large and prestigious fertility clinic here in Chicago. I did one round of IVF at the fertility clinic on a maximum stimulation protocol. My hopes were dashed when the cycle failed miserably. I did not know where to go from there. The cycle was so unsuccessful that the doctor started talking about egg donors. I was crushed. I then heard about Dr. Tur Kaspa and decided to switch to his fertility clinic. I met Dr. Tur Kaspa and hope was ignited again. Low AMH did not scare off Dr. Tur Kaspa. A previously failed cycle did not scare off Dr. Tur Kaspa. Dr. Tur Kaspa practices individualized medicine and created a protocol specific to me and my fertility needs.

Dr Tur-Kaspa had new ideas and offered tests and treatment that were never mentioned by our local doctor. We were successful on the first try...and again on the second try...When it comes to fertility care, you want the best. We wasted a lot of time and money...wish we would have seen Dr. Tur-Kaspa sooner...He also suggested the ERA test which showed the need for an adjustment in progesterone.
We were successful on the first try at IHR, and again on the second try. The doctors, clinical/office staff, and the lab are all top notch...The nursing staff is super responsive and helpful. They went the extra mile and showed a lot of compassion...I was an out of state patient and did most of my appointments locally, but when I did need to visit the clinic, it seemed to be run very efficiently and the staff was friendly. They have an online portal for communication which makes it very easy to get in touch coordinate your care.

Dr Tur Kaspa knows reproductive medicine and personalized my treatment based on our story. He is very personal and we felt very comfortable from the beginning. He Listens to us. He gave us the right dose from the beggining. I know we wouldn’t have gotten pregnant and had 4 extra healthy embryos if it wouldn’t be for Dr Tur Kaspa. The other clicnic we visited FCI was a waste.

How was your experience with Ilan Tur-Kaspa at Institute for Human Reproduction?
He’s very detailed, tries to make you feel comfortable. Will answer your questions. I’m a black woman and have been weary of medical bias and racism. The office is diverse and I never felt uncomfortable or made to feel different. In addition, I was pursuing motherhood on my own (using a sperm donor), and Dr. Tur Kaspa was very supportive of that. I felt like my treatment plan was very individualized and ended up being a success. I had 2 egg freezing cycles then came back and had 2FET’s. First was chemical, second resulted in a pregnancy.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ilan Tur-Kaspa at Institute for Human Reproduction?
You can trust him to have your best interest in mind. Feel free to ask as many questions as you have. I would text the nurses if I had questions and they would follow-up with him as needed. I will say, when you do your labs or ultrasound, he will not be there but he reviews all the results and determines your next steps. So while there were times where I wasn’t interacting with him directly, I felt like he was still involved in my treatment plan.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ilan Tur-Kaspa at Institute for Human Reproduction?
They are very responsive and you are able to text the nurses. You also form a relationship with them over time.
Describe the protocols Ilan Tur-Kaspa used in your cycles at Institute for Human Reproduction and their degree of success.
Hard to remember but there were cases where my dosages were adjusted because my lining wasn’t progressing as desired. I did end up having 2 successful egg retrievals at age 33 that resulted in 15 eggs frozen in each cycle, for a total of 30. Funny enough, that was the goal! My first FET was a chemical and the second successful transfer did have a tweak in the dosage. All this to say that the treatment is very dynamic and individualized based on progress and prior results (if applicable).
Describe your experience with your nurse at Institute for Human Reproduction. (Assigned nurse: There were different per cycle that I did)
Friendly, patient, responsive, empathetic.

Describe Ilan Tur-Kaspa's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Institute for Human Reproduction.
Since I did PGTA testing to determine the Euploid embryos, Dr. Tur-Kaspa recommended I transfer one.

He also explained the risks associated with transferring multiple embryos (for mom and babies).

How was your experience with Ilan Tur-Kaspa at Institute for Human Reproduction?
After two years of unsuccessful attempts at getting pregnant at a large Chicago fertility clinic, I sought out opinions from 3 of the top fertility doctors in Chicago with Dr Tur Kaspa being one of them. All the doctors pointed out the mistakes that had been made in my prior treatments. I asked each doctor about the protocol they would use for me. Dr Tur Kaspa was the only one out of the three other doctors that I saw that offered at different viewpoint and protocol. Since I had been doing the same thing for 2 years, I felt it was time to try a new approach and therefore selected Dr. Tur Kaspa. As I write this today, I am 9 weeks pregnant at age 44 for the first time in my life. I couldn't be more grateful to Dr Tur Kaspa for taking a personal interest in my case. Everything transpired exactly as he indicated. He did a ERA test before my transfer which showed I needed an extra day of progesterone. While this was not covered by my insurance, I feel like this test (which no one doctor mentioned) resulted in my successful implantation along with the protocol Dr. Tur Kaspa prescribed. I found Dr Tur Kaspa to be compassionate and caring doctor who above all took a personal interest in me as a patient.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ilan Tur-Kaspa at Institute for Human Reproduction?
Do your research, get multiple opinions and ask each doctor what the best course of action is for you to compare and contrast.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ilan Tur-Kaspa at Institute for Human Reproduction?
I came to Dr Tur Kaspa after two years at a large fertility clinic. My experience here was completely different. Everyone at the clinic knew who I was. I would generally be in and out of monitoring in &lt;15 minutes.
Describe the protocols Ilan Tur-Kaspa used in your cycles at Institute for Human Reproduction and their degree of success.
Because I have a high ovarian reserve, Dr Tur Kaspa used low dosage of follistum . His goal was to retrieve 15-20 higher quality eggs per cycle. My prior doctor retrieved 30+ eggs in each cycle which resulted in ovarian hyperstimulation. Dr. Tur Kaspa did a ERA test before my transfer to check my lining. This test showed I needed an extra day of progesterone before transfer.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Institute for Human Reproduction.
While I love Dr. Tur Kaspa, the disorganization of the nurses is an issue here. Everyday you deal with a different nurse and I was twice given incorrect instructions. Because I am an experienced patient, I was able to catch their mistakes. Prior to IVF, my spouse was supposed to abstain no more than few days. However the nurses never communicated abstinence instructions prior to either IVF cycle. We only found out what was supposed to happen as we read the forms on the day of the IVF. My husband had abstained for longer than the recommended period which caused a lot of unnecessary stress for us at a time when we are trying to do everything possible to maximize our chances of getting pregnant. My advice is to ask the nurses a lot of questions, call them and don't rely on their voicemails. Double, triple check everything they tell you.
Describe your experience with Institute for Human Reproduction.
Overall being a small clinic you get personal attention. I was a demanding patient given some of the errors by the nurses and they ultimately took care of me. You have to stay on top of them and follow up for things like insurance. I also received incorrect financial letters which took some follow up to get fixed. Overall I was able to live with all this given the success I had with Dr. Tur Kaspa
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Institute for Human Reproduction.
Monitoring was really easy due to the small nature of the clinic. I would usually be out of there in &lt;15 minutes. Ultrasound and lab professionals are really really great.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ilan Tur-Kaspa at Institute for Human Reproduction.
My treatments were covered by insurance however I had reached my lifetime medication cap prior to seeing Dr. Tur Kaspa therefore had to pay out of pocket for medications. I had to pay out of pocket ($900) for ERA test. I highly highly recommend this test.

Dr Tur-Kaspa is a great man. His bedside manner was extraordinary and he was always kind. He has a great sense of humor and I appreciated that at such a difficult, stressful time. We met with three doctors and went with him first. Both my husband and I left our first consult and felt like he was the best fit. What we didn't know, being first time infertility patients, was that you rarely see the doctor. While it's extremely important to like the doctor, it's equally if not more important to like the nursing staff
The Oak Brook coordinator [at Institute for Human Reproduction] was horrible!! We LOVED the doctor but rarely saw him, as in Any fertility center, however felt as though the coordinator was horrible. In such a delicate time you HAVE to treat patients with compassion and care, something she was unable to do...Mary was just plain rude, both clinics were old and dirty, and we didn't like having to go downtown for all procedures. I did speak to the doctor about Mary and it didn't seem that there were many options. Also all of my paperwork that I obtained when I left was handwritten notes. There was no portal or way to get results except through Mary

She was horrible. She had a minimal personality and always seemed to be angry. We miscarried both cycles and her choice of words and lack of compassion is why we left. I get that this is a job to her, but each cycle and life that we lost was our life...... I was so incredibly disappointed that we were treated with such a disregard to any of our emotions

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He [Dr. Cohen] was very blunt and explained things well, which I appreciate more. He was funny and made a tough conversation light ... He has a very blunt personality, but he tells you what you need to know and thoroughly explains in an appropriate manner. He explained when and where we needed to get tests done, gave us a complete schedule and options for future treatment.
Strength I was the only one in office [IHR] and taken in immediately. Weakness is office hours. I wish I had more print out in terms of maybe orders or personalized numbers for the nurse to call her and get in touch, but I was given an office number which she states she is at and I needed to call at least the day before my period to get my testing done otherwise I’d have to drive to Chicago which would be inconvenient for me and my periods are irregular and hard to discern when I can get done with only two short office days near me
