After seeing a doctor at a different clinic for several IVF cycles who told us we had a 2% chance of success, we switched to Dr. Jacobs. Thanks to Dr. Jacobs, we now have a wonderful, healthy one year old son who is our own biological child. This past year has been the most amazing and happiest year in my life - all thanks to Dr. Jacobs. Helen, the nurse from Dr. Jacobs's office was helpful and prompt in answering all our questions and concerns.

We are very blessed to work with to Dr. Laurence Jacobs . He's very attentive, caring and most of all respectful of our decisions. His honesty & professionalism is unmatched compared to the other Reproductive Endocrinologists my husband and I had before. Dr. Laurence Jacobs is true to his words. He is very patient and listened to what we have to say. With continuous failure in IVF and a miscarriage, Dr Jacobs recommended tests I should take before moving forward again with IVF. I did what he suggested & sure enough I tested positive for those tests, which prevented me from getting pregnant. After Dr Jacobs treatment and recommendations, we went for another round of IVF and now we are expecting. Words can't explain our happiness. We highly recommend Dr. Laurence Jacobs, he made the impossible, possible!! -- MV (04 2020)

Dr Jacobs is a great doctor. Our case was a challenging combination via IVF but he made sure we finally were able to get pregnant and our little baby will be soon with us :) Dr Jacobs always patiently listened to my questions and my complains as I did kind of complain when it didn’t work and answered all. He explained the obstacles we were facing and what we could do. I’m sure he has to deal with different characters and it is not easy. Dr Jacobs has also great sense of humor which helped to go thru the process that is difficult, overwhelming and exhausting. Not many doctors have such a good sense of humor. Besides dr Jacobs gives his patients his email address so if you have questions or concerns you can ask and he will always reply even late in the evening so in one word he is an just email away. If anyone needs treatment I would highly recommend Dr Jacobs as the fertility doctor who can help achieve your dream of having a child. I wish Dr Jacobs all the best. Joanna & Mark

Dr. Laurence A Jacobs provides a very professional and outstanding guidance during patient’s stressful and vital journey of having a child via IVF. He personally supervises each case and considers carefully each couple’s special circumstances. Special thanks to the FCI staff and aParent Fertility lab at Highland Park for an extremely delicate and precise work that brings happiness to people’s lives! Embryologists never meet patients, but their contribution is absolutely crucial in the magic FCI performs daily. The lab staff presents every piece of the information accurately and timely, returns every phone call personally immediately, which reduces stress, helps to make correct decisions, save money and have a happy outcome! Lucky to choose Dr Jacobs, his FCI clinic and the lab!

My husband and I had a lot of anxiety around beginning fertility testing and treatment. When we determined that we did indeed face some challenges, Dr. Jacobs was always a steady and supportive guide along our path to parenthood. Infertility can be a heartbreaking and lonely journey, but the staff, nurses and doctors at FCI were always positive, hopeful, honest and pleasant to see (and you see them a lot when you're undergoing treatment!). When it was time to give up on IUI and try IVF, Dr. Jacobs was encouraging and straightforward about what the process entailed and how much better our odds would be. We moved forward with IVF and became pregnant after our first frozen embryo transfer. We feel incredibly blessed and grateful to FCI to be 35 weeks pregnant, expecting our baby girl to arrive right around Christmas, 2019. If you're considering getting tested, starting treatment, picking a clinic or finding support, please give FCI and Dr. Jacobs a call. It was so worth it.

Five stars is not enough for Dr. Jacobs and his team! I have struggled with Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) all my adult life. Other doctors failed to successfully diagnose or treat my condition. I was ecstatic to learn that Dr. Jacobs is a nationally recognized specialist in the treatment of PCOS. I pleased when I received grace, instead of shame, at our first visit. When we started trying for a family, I was afraid to see a new dr. But, I have never been more comfortable. Every staff member was supportive and encouraging. Even when we faced another "not yet", they delivered it with care and hope. We were hesitant to move onto IVF and Dr. Jacobs worked with us to accommodate that choice. Once I was pregnant, he and his staff carefully monitored the pregnancy to ensure the best chance to carry to term. When they say, "Your miracle. Our mission", it’s true. Today, we are holding our precious miracle! We are forever grateful.I highly recommend Dr. Jacobs, his team, and FCI

It is too hard to put into one review the amount of gratitude my husband and I have for Dr. Jacobs and his staff at FCI. Dr. Jacobs is the most knowledgeable and persistent doctor you could possibly hope for in the fertility world. We were comforted by the fact that Dr. Jacobs was willing to run any and every test that might lead us to answers. He uses the most current practices and makes it obvious that he is always completely invested in your care. Without him suggesting the Receptiva DX test to us, we wouldn’t be where we are today. As we wait for our miracle twin girls to arrive this March, we can never truly thank him enough. You’d be crazy not to allow Dr. Jacobs and FCI a chance to make your dream of becoming a parent come true as well.

Dr. Jacob's was my third Reproductive Endocrinologist. I had already been through 6 clomid + IUI cycles and 3 IVF trials with no success. The first two doctors I went to said I had poor egg quality and that it would be difficult for me to conceive. I went to Dr. Jacob's and he gave us new hope. He is excellent doctor and very experienced. During appointments he always knew what questions his patients would have. He would answer questions even before asking. Needless to say we had success with our 4th IVF. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Jacobs never gave up on my husband and I. We had a particularly challenging road with infertility and spent over 7 years trying to concieve (not all with Dr. J). We now are the proud parents of a 2m old little boy, who is absolutely perfect. Through each step of our journey, Dr, Jacobs used progressive and aggressive treatments. He researched and used cutting edge science to ensure a positive outcome for us. Not only is Dr. Jacobs dedicated, but he is kind and caring as well.

Dr. Jacobs is an amazing individual, very knowledgeable and compassionate. We went to Dr. Jacobs after 4 IVF failures at a different facility and he helped us conceive beating all the odds. We are 11 weeks pregnant now and we are so thankful to him for this dream come true. We will definitely plan our second baby with Dr. Jacobs. He came across as a very friendly and warm person giving us hope that someone other than us is equally concerned for our success. His staff members are equally amazing

Dr. Jacobs was referred to me to me through my coworker after two failed IVF's through a different doctor. My first impression with him was, "this is the doctor I want to be with". He switched my protocol from what my previous doctor prescribed, put me on vitamins to improve the quality of my eggs for 60 days, and then we started the process of stimulating. I am now currently 12 weeks pregnant. God bless you Doctor Laurence, and bless your staff.

A quick recap of my pregnancy history. I have been pregnant 4 times and all ended in miscarriage before the 8th week. From my very first visit at Fertility Centers of Illinois in Hoffman Estates back in May I was so impressed. The staff was unbelievably friendly and welcoming. When I met Dr. Jacobs, I just knew he would be the doctor to help my husband and get and stay pregnant. He was so detailed in reviewing all of my previous medical history, asking questions and was genuinely empathic to my

We couple both had infertility problems, and Dr. Laurence Jacobs provided necessary treatment. We got out of problem within 6 months and we got success. Dr. Jacobs suggested treatment required what exactly help us, he clearly explained the stages of treatment and we got success in 1st stage itself. And his staff is very responsive for the queries we ask.
