Overall, I feel as though Northwestern has a great process very well ironed out for fertility care. They are prompt with getting you in for appointments and very responsive to inquiries outside of appointments. The biggest complaint I have heard about Northwestern is that they treat you like a number, not a person. Personally, I felt well cared for the entire process.
