Beware! I have been going to FCI since dr. Lederer was around. Let me first say, He was amazing. He genuinely cared about his patients and he was always, always, available for the needs of the patient. We were successful in every ivf transfer we did. ... Now, wth dr. Hirshfeld, we have done 3 frozen embryo transfers and no success. It has been 6 months of treatment, and I have only seen the actual dr 2-3 times. Every time I try to call to speak to a nurse, I am only able to reach the receptionist and her help is, "let me send you to voicemail". I have been getting more and more upset by the lack of attention. And there has been mistakes in my protocol. Yesterday I went in for my pregnancy blood test. I needed to speak to the dr about a concern I have, which I needed a specific blood test ordered. And from what I understand it needed to be done at that specific time. So, I asked if I could see the dr. "She's not in the office today." I said, "okay. Can I make an appointment then." She said, "yes but she is not available until September 27th." I said "that is ridiculous I need to speak with her right away, it is important." ... They gave me a run around with the nurse and office manager, which I was never out of line, and did not raise my voice. They eventually put dr. Hirshfeld on the phone. She told me that my behavior is inappropriate and defending herself from my point of having seen her twice in 6 months, she said she has spoken to me on the phone more than any other patient (this was the second time I've spoken with her on the phone!). She tells me she wants me to come in the next morning to talk about my treatment. I come in, she again starts to attack me about my "behavior". And by behavior she means, my needing m, and requesting, to see a dr. I never yelled. I cried bc of the way I was being treated by her. Never in my life have I experienced anything like this. She told me that she has certain expectations of patients and threatened to not keep me as a patient. This just blows my mind. More importantly there are expectations of a dr, whom you are paying a VERY LARGE amount of money to, to see and speak to the dr. And to be treated with respect and with care. Besides, all of her poor manners, she is not very good at what she does. She has not looked into treating us personally as a couple. She just follows a general protocol. Clearly not working. Clearly doesn't care. Also, compare success rates. Theirs are not very high. I will be taking my embryos to another practice. I just wish I didn't already spend $70,000 with FCI. Please, beware.

July 5, 2015 I have not been able to conceive a child in the last 10 years and have struggled with depression, anxiety and suicide. I have also been self-employed for the last 10 years as a self-employed individual every single day it is hard to make ends meat. I went into the Fertility Center of Illionois, September of 2014 and saw Dr. Jennifer Hirshfield –Cytron MD. The first thing I asked in my initial consultation was ‘IS THIS COVERAGE UNDER MY INSURANCE” and the doctor said “Yes, everything is covered”. Every single time I can for a visit for blood work I asked the same thing, “is this covered”. Every single time I got the same answer yes we spoke with your insurance provider and they said“YES IT IS COVERED 100%”. I didn’t have any inclination that ZERO dollars would be covered otherwise I would have NEVER NEVER EVER!!! gone through the process. Now I found out almost a year later that ZERO dollars are being covered and I have an outrageous $11,000 bill owed. This is InHUMANE. How in the world am I going to afford this? I will be seeking counsel about this, I always pay my bills on time but this is outrageous why did they tell me everything is covered under my insurance when nothing ended being covered at all. Horrible service.
