“The reviewer I saw saying that they are not compassionate and don’t have counselors are wrong, although they reviewed 4 years ago so it may have changed but my counselor was amazing (although I didn’t need her, since I was in for a miscarriage), and so was the ultrasound tech. I won’t go back, but it isn’t due to the facility. The people here were amazing, the only ones I had issues with, with their attitudes, were the ladies at the front desk.”

“I have no heath insurance so I go to this clinic for low cost OBGYN visits and birth control. Dr. Ventura is the most kind and generous doctor I have  ever met. She didn’t even charge me for my last BCP consultation visit because she did have any free samples for me at the time. She understands that I cannot afford  the outrageous out-of-pocket cost for even for generic pills and arranged for me to pick up a few months worth of free samples.  The nurses and secretaries are very kind hand helpful as well. The only downfall of this place you have to plan to be there for at least an hour but up to 3 hours. It’s kind of like planned parenthood except the facilities and staff are superior.”

“I needed to make an appointment at the last minute, and was terrified I wouldn’t get in anywhere, but they fit me in that afternoon! The staff that treats you in the back is VERY nice! I had Dr. Ventura, and she was so friendly. The front desk staff I would give 3 stars, but I’m generally harsher in that area because I used to be a medical receptionist, and I always expect the front-desk staff to be friendly and helpful. Expect to wait awhile to be seen, but the quality of care you receive once you are being treated is 5 star!!!”

“I’ve gone here a couple times as moral support for friends/family members. The staff that I’ve dealt with here are very professional, patient and kind. One time I was there with a friend who was just there for normal check up–try going to a center for a check up that is known as an abortion clinic(but they also take payments and work with you if need be–unusual in this day and age). Staff answered all of her questions, didn’t get curt with her, got the paperwork she needed for her insurance–I stood there with my mouth open, in tears, why can’t they be on my plan?????”

Unplanned pregnancies are far more common than you may think, affecting millions of women in the United States every year. Although many women opt to give birth, approximately 40% of women facing an unintended pregnancy choose to terminate it with an abortion.
Having an unplanned pregnancy is a complicated dilemma that millions of American women find themselves facing each year. About 40% of women choose to terminate an unplanned pregnancy with either a medical or surgical abortion. and it’s estimated that 30% of women in the United States will have an abortion by the time they’re 45 years old.
If your period is late and you find yourself wondering whether that night of sex when the condom broke has resulted in pregnancy, you can find out for sure with a pregnancy test. Taking a pregnancy test is a quick, easy way to determine if you’re pregnant as early as one week after your first missed period. The team of physicians at Access Health Care in Downers Grove.
Birth control — or any medication or device that minimizes your risk of unintended pregnancy — is an indispensable part of effective family planning. The team of experts at Access Health Care in Downers Grove, Illinois.
