I was at the Family Planning downtown for an abortion yesterday and they were soooo nice...Even though I was nervous and wanted to just get through it the staff made the day as pleasant as possible. I would recommend this clinic to most people, the downtown clinic was easy to find - right off the highway . Also I don't have any insurance and I was able to get some financial assistance so I wouldn't have to pay the whole price. Glad that places like this exist for when you need them.... thanks so much!

Writing a review for an abortion clinic is not what I ever thought I would do but I felf compelled to do so after my experience at Family Planning Associates. Not knowing at ALL what to expect, I suppose the kindness of the staff suprised me. Every person...from the woman who made my appointment on the phone, to the receptionist, Physician Assistant who performed the exam, recovery room nurses, etc., where VERY friendly, caring, and compassionate. If any of you ladies out there find yourself in need of their services, I cannot recommend Family Planning Associates enough!

I simply cannot thank the entire staff of Family Planning Associates enough.
A few months ago, my spouse and I discovered that there was a problem with our pregnancy. It was a very difficult decision to terminate, but I felt supported by the staff at FPA every step of the way, from the time I called to make the appointment until my discharge.
I could have gone to the hospital to have my procedure but I wanted to avoid a sterile enviroment.
I do not ususally write reviews, but I was so disheartened by the only other review on this site. I simply had to let everyone know that this is wildly inaccurate. FPA is clean and friendly, from start to finish.
I had to wonder if that review was written by somone who simply opposes a woman's right to choose, because it in no way describes FPA or their exceptional staff.
Special thanks to Rose the PA and Kathy the Manager.

got impatient and booked an appoitment here, Well for starters I didnt reseach but there are court records about them causing the expiration of someone in 1992 General anesthesia. state.il.us/court/opinions/appellatecourt/2000/1stdistrict/June/HTML/1982583.htm

Ok. I went, it looks like a board of health public clinic. There is no privacy or discretion. Some careless, condescending, poor excuse of a medical assistant sent me into the wrong procedure -- and theres a real good reason that anesthesiologists are some of the highest paid specialists. General Anesthesia can be lethal. I am not letting a RN nurse adminster that. I had drank too much liquid and could have asphyxiated if aspiration happened.

Well they start setting me up with heart monitors and thankfully I informed her I can not do general and why. She said I would be fine -- I said NO. They stated theres a problem with my chart. They put me back in a "bullpen" to wait with 4 other women. To have someone do the procedure I elected. MORE WAIT. I'm of course now more stressed because that is a HUGE medical error to just shrug off. If I didnt know better...no one would have noticed. This exacerbated my emotional stress level and then I started regretting not going to planned parenthood. I finally get to back its not as clean as you expect a medical center to be.

*In the end I have to return in 48 hours because they dont know if I'm still pregnant or not.*

ALSO you dont want to go to a place that makes you sign 20 papers about not suing them in the event of an unsuccesful abortion. It should have been a red flag for me to leave. So maybe they did do it correctly -- maybe they didnt... I wouldnt reccomend this to an enemy
