Dr. Feinberg was an incredible doctor. She was extremely sensitive to our fertility situation and I really appreciated her realistic attitude. She did not get our hopes up with false promises, but was rather open with us about our situation and was always ready to come up with a new plan. She took alot of time in every appointment and never made us feel like she was in a rush to see other patients. We always felt that she was using the best procedures and technology and that she was always informed about the new research as fertility is changing and developing by the minute.

What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eve Feinberg?
My advice would be to not wait too long before going to see her.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
When working with Dr. Feinberg I felt like a human because I felt that the treatment approach was extremely specific to our situation. She was always willing to have us come in for appointments to discuss the next steps in our process. I always felt that we had a plan.
Describe the protocols Eve Feinberg used in your cycles and their degree of success.
When working with Dr. Feinberg we had already been thru several rounds of clomid, IUI with injectibles and IVF. We went to Dr. Feinberg already in the IVF process. During our first retreival cycle we used an antagonist protocol. I started taking follistim 75iu and 150 of menopur. I stimulated for approximately 12 days before preparing for the retrieval. I then took ganirelix. Dr. Feinberg was aggressive with my stimulation medications in order for us to get a good amount of eggs but she was very meticulous about not having me hyperstimulate which was a concern. She monitored me very closely. The second retrieval followed the same protocol.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The nursing staff was extremely organized and professional. When starting our fertility journey we were assigned a designated nurse that was the main contact person for us. Whenever I had any question, I was able to call the office to talk to her. I felt so comfortable with this because I never felt like I had to explain myself. If I ever had a specific question for Dr. Feinberg she always contacted her to get the information. She gave me her email and was always available in a timely manner.
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Illinois.
IVF Florida is extremely organized, professional and knowledgeable about the latest research that is being done in the field of fertility. The nurses, who are the people that you talk with the most are very knowledgable as well and make you feel like you are important. I always felt very comfortable during a time in my life that was emotional beyond belief. As a new patient I would explain that you need to get comfortable with your nurse. The doctor is the one who is making all of the decisions and looking at your bloodwork and every test that is done, but for the daily contact about medications, ultrasounds, baseline appointments, etc...is your nurse. I was surprised at first that I wasn't always seeing the doctor and would often go in for bloodwork and ultrasounds with the techs; however this is the process and I knew that my doctor was always looking at the results of these in order to decide what the next steps are. Make sure that once you are given a nurse you always ask to talk to the same person when you call with questions. That way you are not having to re-explain yourself.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eve Feinberg.
When doing PGS testing we typically spent about $6500 per testing. Our insurance covered 4 retrievals. During our surrogacy journey we were out of pocket and spent approximately $6000 on procedures.

How was your experience with Eve Feinberg?
Dr. Feinberg is professional and caring. I cannot say enough about how she helped me through recovering from 3.5 years and 6 previous IVF treatments when I was about to give up entirely. She was confident that this would work and helped me stay calm and confident as well!
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eve Feinberg?
Don't hesitate -- go to see her. She will be honest and tell you if something is likely to work or not, which I think is important given the cost of fertility treatments.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I had been to THREE other fertility doctors, including CCRM in Colorado, and came back to FCI in Chicago for one last try. She referred me to the best donor she had ever seen and I am currently pregnant with a baby girl due in 2016. She was present and caring throughout each step of the process. Her office staff is second to NONE!
Describe the protocols Eve Feinberg used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I had just experienced my second of 2 donor cycle losses. The first was a chemical pregnancy and the second was a 13 week miscarriage with a Down's syndrome fetus. I was devastated as I had just come from CCRM in Colorado. I had experienced a total of 6 cycles of IVF and was desperate to find a solution to my problem. We had talked about doing PGS on my own eggs/embryos with a new fresh retrieval versus another donor egg. An amazing donor that Dr. Feinberg had worked then became available, and she called me right away to let me know this was my best option!
Describe your experience with your nurse.
All of Dr. Feinberg's staff at the Hoffman Estates office are the best! They know your name and make you feel important! They actually care and this is hugely important when you are going through this process!
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Illinois.
Small but personal. The staff is fantastic.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eve Feinberg.
I paid approximately 25K for my entire donor cycle. I felt that given this donor had a fantastic track record it was cheap compared to other places I had visited (CCRM - 42K per donor cycle with no baby and no guarantee program).

She heard me out and owned that things should not have transpired as they did - while they cannot guarantee any specific outcome, they can keep patients informed along the way so that patients can make informed decisions about their care.

How was your experience with Eve Feinberg?
I went through two rounds of egg freezing (for "social reasons") and worked with Dr. Feinberg for both - the first was disappointing and the second a success. There is more below but I would heartily recommend Dr. Feinberg to others; she is a fine physician who is kind, thoughtful, and truly cares about her patients. The first round I felt like a cog in the wheel of the clinic (which has more to do with the clinic than Dr. Feinberg) and didn't feel I understood how things were progressing until the retrieval when I was informed that I only had a handful of possible eggs to retrieve (this conversation happened to be with the MD on rotation/doing procedures that day). While the nurse had been in touch with me after each of my morning blood draws/ultrasounds, I wasn't informed of the details of my progress (but also didn't know what I should be asking). I learned that I certainly needed to be far more well-informed, a stronger advocate for myself and, in response, brought these concerns to Dr. Feinberg in our follow-up meeting. She was kind, human, thoughtful, and generous in response. She heard me out and owned that things should not have transpired as they did - while they cannot guarantee any specific outcome, they can keep patients informed along the way so that patients can make informed decisions about their care. In response, Dr. Feinberg went to bat for me and the hospital subsidized a second round. I chose to work with Dr. Feinberg again and had a very good experience. Communication was fluid and consistent, the med regimen was tweaked, and the results were much improved. I was lucky to have Dr. Feinberg on rotation the day of my retrieval and we were able to celebrate a happy ending to a tough journey. She is lovely!
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eve Feinberg?
I think this may have more to do with the clinic set-up than Dr. Feinberg but do your homework and be the polite albeit squeaky wheel so that you get the grease. While Dr. Feinberg is excellent at explaining things in plain english, the clinic is set up in a way that directs your communication towards the nursing staff rather than the physician. I had Dr. Feinberg's email and knew I could get in touch with her as needed but didn't know enough about what information was important the first time around to do so.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I felt that Dr. Feinberg was interested in getting to know me as a person and in understanding what my goals were in the process.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Every individual I worked with at the clinic was excellent but they have such a high number of patients that the process feels somewhat impersonal. I don't think there are other local options that don't run into this issue so I wouldn't recommend making a decision based upon it.
Describe your experience with Northwestern Medicine.
The clinic is clean, high-tech, comfortable, and the staff are friendly and kind. It's factory of sorts but that comes with the territory/high patient numbers. The people that work there seem content and happy to be at work which goes a long way in my book.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eve Feinberg.
Due to freezing eggs for "social reasons," this was fully out of pocket for me. The most useful people in terms of saving money were the Walgreens as well and in-house Northwestern pharmacists.

How was your experience with Eve Feinberg?
Dr. Feinberg is a joy to work with and takes her work of creating families very seriously. She understands the many difficult paths that lead individuals or couples to require ART and truly listens when you talk about your experience. I always felt that I had enough time when speaking with her and that while explaining treatment options, she considered our wants and needs carefully. I honestly cannot say enough positive things about her.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eve Feinberg?
My best advice would be that if you haven't yet tried IVF, be prepared to hear that you need to move to IVF. I had so hoped that a lesser treatment would work for us, but after hearing the success rates and understanding that Clomid, IUI, etc. have much lower rates of success, it was Dr. Feinberg who really got me to take IVF seriously and to move on from repeated stressful cycles with negative outcomes.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Feinberg and her staff, including nurses and front desk staff, always knew my name, my cycle details, my history, and most importantly were extremely understanding and caring about our great desire to have a child. After an unsuccessful attempt at IVF with 0 embryos to transfer with another practice where I had been treated like a number, Dr. Feinberg reviewed my 300+ page medical record and explained why and how IVF with her protocol would work. After the heartbreak of going through the process to not even have a transfer, it took everything in me to be strong enough to try again. Dr. Feinberg and her staff didn't let me down and I felt supported and encouraged the whole way through.
Describe the protocols Eve Feinberg used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I have PCOS and am anovulatory; haven't had a period on my own since I was 16. I am now 35. I tried 6 Clomid cycles through my OBGYN, with no pregnancies, and moved on to Dr. Feinberg to try a Clomid cycle with IUI. It was negative as well. Dr. Feinberg suggested IVF due to the much higher success rate. I also had a possibly blocked tube, discovered during an HSG. Because I was 100% covered through employer insurance at a different practice, I left Dr. Feinberg and tried IVF there. (Huge mistake.) It ended with an egg retrieval that resulted in OHSS, maybe 16 eggs retrieved, 5 embryos, and 0 embryos made it to day 3. We were devastated and I was very sick with OHSS. There was 0 follow up from that doctor. Almost a year later, I went back to Dr. Feinberg, and she read over my 300+ page medical record from the previous IVF attempt. She showed me 3 places where she would have canceled the cycle. She said, this cycle was never going to result in a pregnancy. The eggs were not mature/large enough and my hormones weren't at the right levels (my estrogen was well over 6000 when I developed OHSS). She told me I had a 90% chance of getting pregnant, with a longer, slower protocol, and that we would do a freeze-all to allow my body some time to rest before transfer, due to having OHSS. The difference in the cycles cannot be overstated. What was so painful and difficult the first time was made easy and understandable with Dr. Feinberg and her staff. I again used injectables including Lupron and Follistim, and progesterone in oil. I was so calm about/before the egg retrieval this time, I tried to take a cab home (not allowed after anesthesia.) I did not develop OHSS, we retrieved 23 mature eggs, ICSI produced 6 viable embryos, and we froze them all. About a month later we transferred 1 AA embryo that resulted in a pregnancy and live birth; my son is now 1 year old.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Dr. Feinberg's nursing staff is excellent. They communicated well, were always available for questions, and always returned my calls same-day, or next-day if I left a message later in the day. I really felt like they were all in my corner; I don't know how they do that for all of their patients, because the care seems so individual. I had a great rapport with everyone there and enjoyed seeing them and moving through the process with them. They made it easy to stay positive which can be so very hard during fertility treatment.
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Illinois.
FCI is probably the largest fertility clinic in Illinois. Dr. Feinberg is the only doctor I had at FCI, and she was wonderful. Even though it's a huge practice, I never felt like a number or a dollar sign. The nurses and staff were always incredibly warm and polite, and the finance coordinator worked with us through a few insurance changes. I had an incredibly positive experience there and look forward to going back when we're ready for a 2nd child.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eve Feinberg.
My costs were covered by insurance; I had to meet the deductible and embryo storage is out of pocket.

Dr. Feinberg is an excellent fertility doctor, and has gone through IVF herself, so she has a strong understanding of the process herself. I felt that her recommendations for treatment made sense and were realistic. After a few attempts at IVF and IUI, she recommended using donor eggs, which is the option we are currently pursuing.

Dr. Feinberg reviews all donors and emphasized that she is picky about choosing a donor, so we have the best chance for success. I know Dr. Feinberg also works with women who want to freeze their eggs, and I've referred a few friends to her who are interested in this option. I've sought complementary treatment from many other professionals (acupuncturists, chiropractors, massage therapists, therapists) and all of them consistently say that Dr. Feinberg is the best. I'm hopeful that we will have success with donor eggs in the next few months with her.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eve Feinberg?
Dr. Feinberg books up far in advance, so I recommend making a follow up appointment around when you know your next cycle will end, so you can meet with her to discuss a plan if pregnancy does not occur.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
My husband and I had periodic appointments with Dr. Feinberg at Northwestern at various points in treatment. We felt that she provided thorough information (and I ask a lot of questions) and spent good time with us. Her nurse that we worked with (Laura) was good about follow-through. I felt that our treatment plan was customized to us and not just a one-size-fits-all approach.
Describe the protocols Eve Feinberg used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We did protocols for diminished ovarian reserve (DOR), using estrogen pill or patch priming and then microdose lupron. She gave me the highest dose of Menopur and Follistim, but I only produced a few eggs at 2 retrievals. We tried for a third round of IVF, but I wasn't responding, so we converted to IUI. Dr. Feinberg made it clear that IVF/IUI are not necessarily the best treatment for DOR, and trying on our own was a fine option and that treatment may not be help. I appreciated this perspective.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
I got to know Laura after working with her for about a year. She was protective of Dr. Feinberg and if I had a question that Laura couldn't answer I would ask her to ask Dr. Feinberg. Sometimes I got an answer from the doctor, sometimes Laura said we had to make an appointment with the doctor, which was frustrating. I felt that she was on top of everything and didn't make any mistakes with my meds/appointments/instructions, which made me feel confident.
Describe your experience with Northwestern Medicine.
Northwestern has great facilities both in the city and in Highland Park. Only Dr. Feinberg sees patients in Highland Park, so the office is pretty quiet, which is nice. The downtown office is busier and a few of the blood draw and ultrasound techs are not friendly, and a little friendliness goes a long way when you are getting poked in the arm and during a transvaginal ultrasound.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eve Feinberg.
In 2016, we did an IVF cycle out of pocket (roughly $18,000), In 2017 our round of IVF and a few IUIs were covered by insurance- thank god! It's ridiculously expensive.

Describe the protocols Eve Feinberg used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I don't remember the protocols but I chose to try IUI the 6th time, she would have allowed me to go to IVF earlier. My insurance covered 4 egg retrievals per year and after the first IVF, I began to discuss donor eggs. I was 42 at this time and would be 43, if the next 3 did not work, before I could begin again. Dr. Feinberg believed, despite my lower egg count/low egg retrieval but positive response to treatment, my chances were good using my own eggs. She recommended attempting one more cycle and I ended up with a healthy baby boy.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The staff at the front desk, at the Fertility Center of Illinois, was great. They were personable, friendly and were just as important as the rest of the staff.
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Illinois.
The clinic was good. One of the women in office where you fill out the paperwork knew me because of my occupation. She told her husband I was a patient there and when he called for something work related, he mentioned that he was the husband of------ that I talked to at FCI. It was inappropriate.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eve Feinberg.
My insurance covered a large portion of the care. An office visit was only charged if you actually met with Dr. Feinberg, in her office. If she stopped in for the ultrasound or briefly 'touched base', she did not charge.

Describe your experience with your nurse.
Kelsey is amazing. I could not say enough good things about her if I wrote 10 pages of reviews. The NU clinic utilizes MyChart which has secure email functionality. I found this so helpful. I never played phone tag with the nurses and I always heard back within an hour (or much less) with a detailed email answering all of my questions. It made a scary process a lot less intimidating. Kelsey is so upbeat and knowledgable. I trusted all of the information she gave me without question.
Describe your experience with Northwestern Medicine.
This clinic is extremely efficient. I really like how they run early morning monitoring because you are not given an appointment. So if you know that you need to get in and out quickly, you just show up 15 minutes before it opens and you are in and out. The staff is so courteous and friendly. The clinic is brand new, clean and beautiful. I have heard that the lab is EVERYTHING and can greatly impact your chance of success. NU is a brand new state of the art lab. I liked that I didn't need to get on the clinic's schedule, they got on my schedule. This is not the case at all clinics--some require you to get on their schedule. However, the flip side to that is that my egg retrievals and HSG were not done by my physician. While, I trusted the capabilities of the other physicians, their bedside manner wasn't as wonderful as Dr. Feinberg. I was able to time my transfer to be performed by Dr. Feinberg. Despite this one downside of NU, I would still highly recommend it over other clinics and doctors we interviewed.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
Very efficient. If you go 15 min before the monitoring window, you will be out by 7:20 am. It may take longer if you get there after 7:15 am. It also takes longer if you need to speak to a nurse following your monitoring.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eve Feinberg.
My insurance covered most of the standard IUI and IVF drugs and procedures. However, we paid for egg freezing and PGS testing. I don't recall the amounts.

What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eve Feinberg?
Ask her anything and she will have an answer or get you one, she's great!
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Eve sat with my husband and I at the table and took her time. She has wonderful bedside manner and her team of nurses are outstanding. The office she works at has state of the art equipment. I never have felt rushed or confused working with her, she made a plan and I am currently under treatment!
Describe the protocols Eve Feinberg used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I had been treated at a different dr for over a year and was not getting any results that were helpful. Dr. Fineburg was positive that she could get more then 8 /9 eggs retrieved (at my prior dr office in which only 4 out of both cycles made it and none resulted in pregnancy) and she did! I got 22 in which 8 made it. I did a fresh transfer and still was not pregnant. I am currently waiting on my ERA results to see if my implanting window needs to be adjusted.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The nursing staff is AMAZING and so caring! They have an email portal and get back to you right away. Communication among the nurses is very important and they are truly wonderful!
Describe your experience with Northwestern Medicine.
Amazing facility! Super clean and the technology is all up to date! There is never more than 3 people in the waiting room, you truly feel like a patient and not just a number here!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eve Feinberg.
$900 for ERA $1,500 for hystroscope $1,600 for retrieval

Describe your experience with your nurse.
Laura was very personable, and responded quickly to any questions I had. There were a couple of incidents of not fully explaining timing of things, or giving me all of the items needed, which involved a lot of stressful running around.
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Illinois.
The phlebotomist was incredibly friendly and compassionate, which is nice when you have blood draws every couple of days. The office staff was pleasant, if distant. One of the ultrasound techs did not use any kind of lubricant on the wand, which made for very unpleasant ultrasounds.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eve Feinberg.
For the IUI and drugs, it all totaled being close to $4000. Our insurance covered nothing, and we had to pay out of pocket for every single thing. Prices were given ahead of time, and they had a 5% discount when paying without insurance.

There was no willingness to work with me, I was told that my only option was egg donor ivf, she [Dr. Feinberg] would not even try any other route first to see if I could respond to it. They were only concerned with the highest change of conceiving (which I appreciate) but I would have liked to try other avenues first. I do not want to use donor eggs...Dr. Feinberg was a good doctor, I only saw her for a few months, as I did not agree with the only treatment plan she proposed for me.

How was your experience with Eve Feinberg?
Dr. Feinberg was a good doctor, I only saw her for a few months, as I did not agree with the only treatment plan she proposed for me. At times I did not really understand what she was talking about, was far too emotional to really comprehend (my own fault)
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eve Feinberg?
Be your own advocate, push for what you want, and if they can not give you that, then find someone who will.

Describe the protocols Eve Feinberg used in your cycles and their degree of success.
After running a few tests, she would only consider doing donor egg ivf, even though I told her I did not want to do that. I wanted to try other things first, but they did not have a good % outcome, so the would not do them.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
She always responded right away when I would email/call with questions.
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Illinois.
Very organized, but seemed to run behind a lot (normal, I know), however, I feel like FCI in general is only concerned with their success rates, if something will hurt their rating they won't try it.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eve Feinberg.
Insurance would only cover diagnostic testing, which was another reason why I did not want to move forward with donor egg ivf (quoted approx. $25,000)

Also, she had so many patients, I'm not sure she was really giving my case all the attention it deserved...when speaking with Dr. Feinberg, she was very compassionate and friendly...I was never given much information about the specifics of my infertility. They also told me "its gonna happen for you" and "you'll get pregnant" when I never did through the clinic. Not sure why they would give false hope like that.

when speaking with Dr. Feinberg, she was very compassionate and friendly.
Describe the protocols Eve Feinberg used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We did medicated timed cycles. IUIs and then one failed IVF. The IVF cycle was a disaster, very few eggs retrieved. There were problems with my insurance billing and I don't think FCI was very on top of it. They waited until the last minute to submit and when there were issues, it delayed the start of meds and eventually I think caused my IVF failure.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Nancy was a lovely person. Very nice and compassionate. However, I think she tended to be unorganized.
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Illinois.
The clinic seems very state of the art and up to date on the latest and greatest medical practices. However, it is big. And kind of easy to get lost in the shuffle. You have to keep on top of every variable in your care.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eve Feinberg.
I think I paid probably 15 to 25 K in total for my treatments.

Describe the protocols Eve Feinberg used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Used menopur / Gonal F low dose and HCG as trigger. Had a lot of bloating and pain that began about 12 hours after my retrieval procedure. Initial US showed 17 follicles at very first exam, about 14 follicles around the time that I actually began my injections, 12 eggs harvested, 10 frozen.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Very thorough in explaining information. Rather quick to dismiss side effects on my first round of egg freezing.
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Illinois.
The Highland Park location is great, very small scale and efficient.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eve Feinberg.
Nearly everything was out of pocket and very expensive. My personal health insurance did not cover any fertility. There was a discount provided for being a hospital employee.
