I’m responding to give my impressions on Dr. Pavone’s bedside manner. She is definitely direct, but she is also meticulous, punctual, and considered in her care instructions. She listens and answers all questions thoroughly. Fertility treatment is all about timing and it’s an inexact science. Having a doctor who is as even-keeled as Dr. Pavone provides me with a sense of stability during the stressful process of fertility treatment.

Over the last 2 months my husband and I have met with numerous doctors at the NW fertility clinic and Dr. Pavone was definitely our favorite. She took time to explain what was going on and to answer all of our questions. She was also always on time which is very difficult to find in a doctor.

Dr. Pavone was the dr scheduled at the IVF clinic on the day my dr scheduled me for a procedure. Of all the drs I have met at NW's IVF clinic, she is the only one I would NOT recommend. Her bedside manner is very cold and short. She does not explain to you what to expect or what she is doing during the procedure like most drs do to help patients prepare for pain/discomfort. She kept sending the nurse out for different size speculum and catheter. Afterward she offered no feedback on how it went.

Dr. Pavone has horrible bedside manner and I do not trust her clinical opinion. She did not want to proceed with any fertility drugs with me upon our first meeting. There wasn't much discussion, she told me I should just use a donor and didn't give me any hope or allow me to try any treatments. I am now seeing another doctor at Northwestern and have had success! I do not recommend Dr. Pavone at all.
