Goals of the Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago
Gurnee, Chicago and Crystal Lake, Illinois

With infertility treatment, bigger is not better.

We do not brag that we are the biggest fertility clinic. In fact, we think that smaller is better.

We strive for the highest possible success rates - to help more of our patients conceive.

Tight quality control in our system allows us to have consistently higher IVF success rates.

We give our patients personalized attention - care that is not possible in larger clinics.

- Your pregnancy rates are our highest priority -

We give the highest quality, personalized infertility, in vitro fertilization and egg donation services.

Pregnancy rates are always the first priority. There is only one reason that you would see a fertility specialist. We understand how important it is for you to get pregnant and have a baby. Everything we do is carefully planned in order to maximize your chances for achieving that goal.

Our services are individualized to suit the needs of the couple.

Our patients get personalized one-on-one care from Dr. Sherbahn and the staff. Couples that have been treated in large infertility programs know that this type of individualized attention is not universal.

Honesty is critical in the infertility field. It is crucial for the physician to have a careful, detailed discussion with each couple regarding their chances for successful pregnancy resulting from the proposed therapy. An honest appraisal of the available treatment options allows a couple to choose the level of treatment that is most appropriate for them.

We sincerely believe that the best approach is to be completely frank and honest with every couple - even if we know that the truth will not please you. It is our job to do our best to accurately and completely inform you.

The cost of services can be important - particularly when insurance will not pay.

Some couples in Illinois will be covered for infertility services by their health insurance - however, many have no coverage at all. In most other states, infertility insurance coverage is minimal to non-existent. There are only 14 states in the US that have any mandate for infertility services to be covered by health insurance. Hopefully, this insurance coverage issue will improve in the future.

Our services are very cost-effective when compared to other centers.

I am so grateful for Advanced Fertility Center. I just had my son Leland. I want to thank Dr. Catenacci and all of the nurses that helped us. Especially Ashley in the Crystal Lake office. You made this process easier by being supportive and positive. Thank you very much!


Dr. Sherban and his staff are the most amazing, compassionate, and supportive people. After almost 5 years of trying to conceive, going through numerous tests and meeting with another clinic closer to home, who told me my chances even with IVF were still very low, a good friend recommended advanced fertility center of Chicago. Best decision we ever made! We now have 2 amazing children who are now 5 and 3 years old! I cannot stress enough how amazing this staff is, they make you feel like family!


Our experience was amazing with Dr. Cantanucci and all of the nurses (especially Ashley). After ttc for 4 years and at 41 years of age, we became pregnant after 1 round of IVF, and had our beautiful boy this past October. Can't thank them enough!


2/7/15 our son was born all thanks to the assistance of Dr. Sherbahn and his staff. Everyone was so helpful and here for all our questions, worries, etc. They want this for you just as much as you want this for you! Handled with pure professionalism and care from the very start! Thank you advanced fertility!
