Success w/ Doc Too early to know
[Dr. Ahmad] never made me feel rushed...I was a part of a study. I used the protocol mandated by the pharmaceutical company...only transfers one embryo for people with my age/diagnosis...She always remembered my husband and I...She was a cheerleader for us during it first consultation and was always very personable. When a follow up appointment had to be missed she went out of her way to call me and review my resume results.
[Fertility Centers of Illinois] strengths are easy to get in touch, easy to schedule, everyone is pleasant, getting in and out of appointments is quick. The weaknesses of the clinic is the billing department bills for things already paid for. I never had an issue getting things resolved though...I set up an appointment for a follow up consultation with Dr.Ahmad but instead when I got there they brought me back to do bloodwork under the impression I was there to do day 2 bloodwork to begin IVF. It wasn't day 2 in my cycle and Dr.Ahmad wasn't even scheduled in the office that day. At that time we hadn't even gone over our results to know if we needed ivf or iui.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Centers of Illinois. (Assigned nurse: Shannon)
My nurse, who is no longer with them, was very good at returning emails/phone calls. She was nice and suggested ways to help knowing we were self pay. The only problem I had was her giving advice she was educated on. When hearing my husband's first semen analysis report she told me she can't believe they bothered freezing his sample and we'd need donor sperm. She said his 0 motility sperm couldn't even be used with ICSI. This was after the lab already told us that his sperm was good for ICSI. She had us devasted until we spoke to his urologist and found out she was completely wrong.

We had already gone through two miscarriages and then experienced one with her [Dr. Asima Ahmad]. She was so caring and her nurse was amazing too. I honestly have no complaints. I’m excited to move forward onto IVF and work closely with them...She treated us like family and that made us feel very comfortable. We enjoy meeting with her every time...did perform a d & c when we had a miscarriage.
[The nurse at Fertility Centers of Illinois was] Super organized, friendly and so caring. She as well treated us like family. Nothing but good things to say. She went above and beyond for all our needs...their hours are great and we would highly recommend to anyone. They have a clean facility and easy to get to. They respond back to your questions immediately and do their best to get you on their schedule if it’s not open at that certain location.
