  • I have used both of these clinics.  I HATE Dr. Karande!!!  He spent no more than 10 minutes with my husband and I.  He never would call back to answer questions.  It was an all around awful experience.  I can tell you more specifics if you're interested.  I had one failed IUI here.  The Dr. didn't even perform one U/S or the IUI.  

    We switched to Advanced Fertility.  We went to the Crystal Lake office and met with Dr. Duetch.  He talked to us for an hour and a half explaining all of our options at our consultation.   I LOVE fact I miss going to see him.  He performed all the procedures including ultras sounds and IUI.  I got pregnant after my 1st IUI with Dr. Duetch.  I'm 11 weeks now!

    A few comparisions....

    *When I had the IUI done at Dr. Karandes office the nurse said my cervix was tilted and she couldn't get the cathetar all the way in to release my husbands sample.  So she just released it as far as she could get it. No ultra sound guide was used.  Needless to say it wasn't done correctly. Not to mention it hurt like hell.

    *At Advanced Fertility the DOCTOR used an ultra sound to guide the catheter in.  He encountered the same problem the nurse did from Dr. Karande's office....only he changed the tip to one with a flexible wire and it went all the way through my cervix effortlessly.   

     *Dr. Karande's office has the 9th highest success rates in the state....Advanced Fertility is #1.  There is no question who is better. 

    *We were paying out of pocket so every penny counted.  Dr. Karande charged us $3500 for 1 IUI and at Advanced fertility we paid $1000 

    *After I already left Dr. Karandes office I met a nurse (a friend of a friend) who used to work there.  She said she quit b/c she didn't agree with the way they treat their patients 

    *After being a patient at both clinics I felt like Dr. Karande was focused on how much money he could make and the Advanced Fertility really cared and empathized with you.   


    Please let me know if you have any questions.
