Highest recommendation to Dr. Tur-Kaspa

Your rating: 55 1
We consulted with Dr. Tur-Kaspa for ivf/pgd after three failed cycles at a local clinic. Our embryos weren't growing properly and the normal embryos were not implanting. Dr. Tur-Kaspa reviewed our case, answered all of our questions, and recommended a different protocol. We decided to give it one last try and ended up with over four times as many embryos to test than we had at our local clinic. Since we had such an excellent result, we then had to discuss why our normal embryos had not implanted on our previous cycles. Dr. Tur-Kaspa recommended a test that found our issue. We transferred a single embryo and it worked on the first try. Dr. Tur-Kaspa was able to accomplish in one cycle what our local clinic could not accomplish in three, and probably more had we stayed. We had to travel for our retrieval and transfer but the staff at IHR made everything easy. Dr. Tur-Kaspa is a brilliant and compassionate doctor, and we would recommend him to anyone. We had a wonderful experience with our coordinator Sue, Dr. Cohen, and the rest of the staff at the clinic. If you are considering fertility care, are in need of PGD, or are not seeing the results you hoped for at your current clinic, do not hesitate to consult with Dr. Tur-Kaspa, it made all the difference for us.

Wonderful Doctor

Dr. Tur-Kaspa addressed our needs and afforded us to have the greatest gift of all - a beautiful daughter. After going through multiple rounds at FCI here in Chicago and CCRM in Colorado with Dr. Schoolcraft, through a recommendation from a family member, we visited him. Keep in mind we have dealt with the top fertility doctors here in Chicago and one of the top renown doctors supposedly in the country in CO, but Dr. Tur-Kaspa brought a fresh perspective and was sincere/honest. Now we all know assessments with fertility doctors are subjective and really, it boils down to the success of pregnancy. But he was able to lay out the options and propose options best for you. Now he could have offered the most expensive cost option, but he did not. What he did do was review the records and proposed some different measures that could have very well contributed to the success of the pregnancy. All I can say is that we were on our last option, and somehow, Dr. Tur-Kaspa made it happen and we thank him dearly. No need to get into the details on what he did, how he did it, etc. All that I know is that he took the time to take great care of the situation. His positive attitude and personal approach was very refreshing during a time when fertility is becoming huge. Sometimes the compassion and attention to details are lost when you happen to see hundreds of patients but with Dr. Tur-Kaspa, you get truly a personal approach along with the top notch expertise he brings from his many years of practice.

2013 IVF winner!

We are the winners of A free IVF from Thanksgiving 2013 from Dr. Tur-kaspa. I received a call from Dr. Tur-kaspa and I actually hung up on him because I thought it was a scam! I forgot that I signed up for it and didn't believe that there was a fertility doctor who would actually give a free IVF! After 6 + years of trying to have a baby and told I should consider adoption I am currently 40 years old and pregnant with twins!! I am so beyond grateful to Dr. Tur-kaspa and the amazing staff. Dr. Tur-kaspa was so confident and reassuring. I remember him smiling at me when I told him I didn't respond well to medication and only got 1 egg at the other fertility clinic we were at. Dr Tur- kaspa was able to get 16 beautiful eggs!!! I don't believe in getting lucky. I believe that God played a role and directed me to this wonderful, amazing and Intelligent Doctor ,so I can have my dream of a family! Please don't give up hope, because Dr. Tur-kaspa can give you the hope and the help that you deserve!! <3<3

Thank You Dr Tur-Kaspa

WE would like to Thank Dr Tur-Kaspa and his IHR staff in making our second blessing come. After meeting in July 2013 with Dr Tur-Kaspa he asked us what we wanted we said baby and dr said he was there to help. After going thru a lot of testing he changed our plan from IUI to IVF. I have to admit I was scared thinking what are we getting into. Our next step was to meet with Olga to learn how to give the shots and to fill out the paperwork for the embryos. We were confused we did not know if we should freeze the left overs or discard. Thanks to Olga explaining it to us we decided to freeze the leftover. Thank god she explained it to us because that was our little blessing that took. Also Vicki was great ever y time I had a question she would give the message to the person who would answer it. Also Dr Tur-Kaspa morning staff was great with my Little 4 yr. old boy that would come with me for my morning monitoring of blood test and ultrasounds. After our retrieval and the first transfer of two embryos which did not work I thought this will never work. We decided to put the frozen one back in I starting think Positive and saying this is going to happen for us. The longest 10 days of my life was waiting for the day of the pregnancy test. The day came and Vernita called to tell me you are Pregnant I was so excited I handed the phone to my Husband which was shocked to hear our First retrieval Frozen embryo worked. My four year said High Five to Dr Tur-Kaspa for making him a big brother. Our little Blessing is Due July 27, 2014 which was around the time a year later of our first visit with Dr Tur-Kaspa. We were helpless, confused, and worried thinking it will never happen and it did. Thank you Dr Tur-Kaspa, and the IHR staff for our little bundle of joy. Without you our blessing would not be coming.

So thankful for Dr. Tur-Kaspa!

We found Dr. Tur-Kaspa through our insurance company and online reviews; the glowing reviews for the Dr. and his team are absolutely true. From day one, the entire team has taken the best care of me and my husband. To be treated like a person rather than a number or statistic is an amazing thing when faced with infertility. Crazy, crazy gratitude to Vernita (IVF coordinator) who was a warrior for me with our insurance company and worked tirelessly to ensure our treatment moved forward. She was available to answer all of my questions at any time and did so with patience and kindness that I'm certain is not an industry standard. I guess my only concern was that I received my medication and no real hands-on teaching of how to "do" the injections, but let's be serious, that's what YouTube is for! I had no problems giving myself the injections and feeling confident in my efforts. Dr. Tur-Kaspa talked me through each step of every process; at no point did I feel unsure of what was going on. On our first ultrasound after our transfer, he signed his name and wrote "GL" and said with a smile, "That's for good luck." I appreciate this doctor's confidence in his work; he knows what he's doing but is not cocky. His warm demeanor made me very calm during the entire process but especially during the retrieval. The office recently moved downtown and while it's a bit further of a drive, it is well worth it. The new space is a rehabbed loft and has all the touches of home to make you feel comfortable. The team honestly became like family and it was a sad, sad day when we "graduated" from Dr. Tur-Kaspa's clinic to a regular OB. We owe so much to this amazing team and I am SO thankful to know that when we're ready to meet our second child, we will be able to return to Dr. Tur-Kaspa and his team. I would readily recommend this practice to any of my friends and family who are faced with fertility issues.

I recommend Dr Tur-Kaspa

I concur with the woman above. I too am pregnant - with twins due to the care and attention of dr kaspa and his team at IHR. We are a London based couple and having failed in trying to find a suitable egg donor that matched our ethnic and religious background, despite waiting 5 years at our local fertility clinic and contacting over 30 clinics in England, we thought we would look on the internet and try abroad. IHR's database for egg donors is extensive, so we were matched with a suitable donor within days. I had my first telephone consult with dr kaspa in march 2013, I found him to be warm, positive and reassuring that at 43 I still had a good chance of completing our family. I had a coordinator allocated to me who gave me clear instructions of the tests and treatment required to prepare for ivf (with icsi & pgd). Most contact was via email and phone. By july I was ready for treatment, so flew into Chicago where dr kaspa personally undertook the egg transfer. He was professional, calm and when he saw me said "are you ready to get pregnant!" which was so reassuring to hear. Ten days later, I was! Thank you Dr Kaspa for your kindness, expertise and reassurance, you are a wonderful doctor!

Dr. Tur-Kaspa is the best!!!

I am delighted to be 40 and pregnant but even if my results had not been as amazing, I would still whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Tur-Kaspa from the Institute for Human Reproduction (IHR) in Chicago. I had previous years of experience in the IVF world to know that Dr. Tur-Kaspa is not only a skilled and knowledgeable doctor but he is also a kind and caring human being. He is very compassionate and genuinely cares about each patient and each woman’s success. He is interested and involved with his patients, which makes the whole process very special. Dr. Tur-Kaspa was available to talk with me every time I needed, and when I got nervous or anxious, he was reassuring and comforting. For over 4 years, my husband and I have been trying to add a child to our family. But, after several failed attempts through the top IVF clinics where I live, I was afraid I would never realize my dream. Then I heard about Dr. Tur-Kaspa and, and reluctantly gave IVF another try. I am ecstatic to share with you that I became pregnant on the first round of IVF at IHR. Dr Tur-Kaspa skill and knowledge made all the difference between disappointment and the joy of planning for the birth of our child. Before coming to IHR, I went through several IVF cycles at 3 different clinics that are considered to be among the best on the East Coast, where I was living. During those years, I spent a lot of money and time, took a ton of medications, but didn’t get the results I so desperately wished for. Each try was a disappointment that took a physical and emotional toll on me. I felt I was out of time because I was turning 40 years old. I was really down and I almost gave up. When I first heard about Dr. Tur-Kaspa and even when I have learned that he is considered as one of the leading fertility expert in the US and internationally, I was skeptical that he could offer me anything different. After failing so many times, I doubted that Dr. TK would be able to get a different result. Another complication was that Dr. TK was in Chicago, which was almost 1,000 miles from where I was living. The distance, the added expense of the flights, and all the long distance monitoring and coordination seemed like too big a barrier. It was my mother, who liked what she heard about him, that encouraged me to consider the opportunity seriously and pushed me to not let distance prevent me from realizing my dream of our family. I wasn’t even sure Dr. TK would accept a long-distance patient, but then I learned that Dr. TK has patients that come to his Chicago IHR Center from all over the US and as far away as Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, and Australia. Dr. TK and his clinic staff make it possible for long-distance patients to receive care at their clinic by putting everything in place to make the process easier and to be always available to his patients. My experience with Dr Tur-Kaspa was completely different than what I had at the other clinics. First, Dr. TK insisted on running a set of tests to get a very thorough picture of my overall health and fertility status. The previous clinics had not performed as thorough tests. I was surprised when these tests revealed that I needed a preparatory procedure before even beginning the IVF treatments. My experience with IHR was completely different and a very positive one compare to the one I had with the other clinics (even before I knew I was pregnant). Dr. Tur-Kaspa took time to listen to me, to understand my story, and to understand my dream for my family. His immense compassion is rivaled only by his immense knowledge. He isn’t stuck in the rut of using a “one-size-fits-all” procedure, and because he is on top of all the recent evidence and cutting-edge developments in the field, he can tailor medication choices and procedures to the needs of each individual patient. Equally important, he takes time to explain his decisions to his patients, and I found it very reassuring to know that his choices were guided by the most recent studies. Once I was ready for IVF, I expected to follow the fresh cycle procedure as I had done with the other clinics. However, based on what he learned about my fertility status through his testing, Dr. TK chose to use a frozen cycle with me. He also changed the medications I took. Each of his changes immediately led to amazing results. I had a much better reaction to the medications he chose for me, and I had 11 eggs retrieved and 5 blastocysts embryos. After having PGD for 24 chromosomes, I got pregnant with a healthy baby on the first round of elective single embryo transfer to prevent multiple pregnancies. I am so happy now. Dr. Tur-Kaspa’s warm, human approach to his patients is mirrored by his amazing and wonderful staff. I cannot remember ever working with more responsive, kind, and caring support staff. From Vernita to Vicky, from Olga and Sue to Veesha, these caring professionals are always available and ready to help. Because of my distance from the office, their near constant availability by phone and e-mail was especially important to me. The clinic staff was always there to pick up the phone and returned e-mail quickly, and having that ease of communicating with the office calmed my nerves and made my experience truly wonderful. In short, I am very glad I chose Dr. Tur-Kaspa for one last IVF try. That decision has changed my life and put me on the path of realizing my dream. I highly recommend Dr. Tur-Kaspa and IHR in Chicago with great enthusiasm and much appreciation!
