Reviews

Reviews about Chicago IVF on Google Business are generally very positive. Cheryl, for example, tried to get pregnant for a long time. The staff was patient and explained everything comprehensible to the patient. Cheryl finally was able to become a mother. Anjali enthusiastically describes Chicago IVF as amazing. According to her, the doctors, nurses, and nurse practitioners are the best. They are not only professional but also compassionate, kind, and respectful.

However, Kim is not content with her experience. She complains about the availability of the doctor and the lack of monitoring. She also had 3 failed IUI cycles and the lack of trust in the professionals makes her move on to a different clinic for an IVF intent.

Location

Chicago IVF runs 3 fertility clinics in Illinois and 2 centers in Indiana. All clinics are located throughout the suburbs of Chicago and are easily accessible because they are situated near domestic and international airports.
