20/02/14 5 4 5 5 To the posts about Maclin and her staff being rude, I've been a patient there for years for many different things and have NEVER been treated rudely. I'm guessing the person that posts this has sour grapes for not achieving a pregnancy. As for not being told about the meds from London you do know you can get the same meds from Kohlls pharmacy in Omaha for the exact same price or cheaper and have no shipping costs? I know this as I just compared the prices!!! I highly recommend Maclin she is the best!!  Respond

26/08/13 5 5 5 5 I went to Methodist and kept getting the run around. Nickel and dimed me and still no straight answers. Wanted a second opinion and went to dr maklin and the 3 hours she spent just I'm the consultation was longer and more detailed than the 2 years of appointments at dr Oakes. With Oakes all I would get was "we'll call u with results". And said no more than 10 words on the phone. After a miscarriage from ivf all they could care about was charging more money to "make sure it was all gone". No compassion. My husband finally got the questions answered he's been waiting for. We will be going with maklin.  Respond

06/04/13 2 1 3 3 I came to Dr Maclin for a second opinion on a course of action recommended by the other RE in Omaha.The office is run very poorly (no punctuality, poor communication).Several times dr Maclin did not know or was surprised by the course of action indicated by the nurses (who were following protocol, no doubt, but each case is different and protocol is not always enough).Dr Maclin APPEARS very knowledgeable and willing to discuss options,has an answer for every question, her professor-like demeanor APPEARS calm and collected, almost studied.However, her decisions are unilateral and incomplete at best(I paid bigger fees to two out of state specialists who but sided with the first RE!!).Reproductive medicine is not an exact science.Congratulations to the ones that got pregnant!It is a wonder.Just know that randomness had at least as much to do with you getting pregnant as dr Maclin's intervention, maybe even more.BTW,lack of competition for REs in Omaha is hurting everybody!  Respond

16/01/13 5 5 4 5 Dr. Maclin is brutally honest at times but I see that as a good thing. I usually see her APRN Annie Bode-Miller when I go there and she is absolutely amazing.  Respond

04/06/12 5 4 4 5 I had high hopes in going to Dr. Maclins office, unfortunately I didn't get pregnant with the several IUI's we did. However I also knew that the chances weren't very good and even though each month was heartbreaking and expensive (my ins didn't cover anything) I don't regret going to her clinic and will return for IVF in a few months when my husband and I are ready for that step. No, we didn't see her every visit, but her nurses were WONDERFUL and very knowledgable! As well as the ladies at the front desk, they made us feel like part of their family which was important to us because it's a difficult situation to be in. In this process I had to have a laproscopy surgery which I had a time before a few years ago in Lincoln, the surgery with Dr Maclin was very reassuring and she covered everything with me afterwards. She's not there to be your friend she's there (along with her team) to grow your family

11/11/11 4 2 2 2 In my treatment of over 1 year at this clinic, I've only seen Dr. Maclin three times. Other than that, all communication has come from the (admitedly wonderful) nurses. The treatments are expensive and our insurance covers nothing. No one here told us that we could buy fertility medications safely online from London, which another doctor told me as soon as I visited her at Methodist for a second opinion. One of my hormone levels was quite low, which was never addressed or even mentioned by Dr, Maclin after a year (!) of expensive IUI treatments. My husband and I were very disappointed with the formulaic (non-individualized) care at the Heartland Center, and will not be going back.

10/11/11 1 1 1 1 Rude, rude, rude staff! I have never experienced such poor treatment in a hospital setting than when I walked through the doors of Maclin's office. It's difficult enough having to deal with infertility, much less having to endure the rudeness of the staff. Not only does the staff treat patients like garbage, Dr. Maclin defends their behavior. I would very much discourage ANYONE going to this office for fertility help. She never got me pregnant after surgery and a year of trying. Doherty helped get me pregnant right away....TWICE! Doherty and her staff are wonderful. Maclin? Not so much.

27/04/11 5 5 5 5 Thank you Dr Maclin. Five years ago Dr Maclin, on Easter Sunday helped me to get pregnant. I delivered twins on 10-27-06. I wanted to have a baby. It was a very stressful time. Emotionally and financially draining. I felt Dr Maclin and her staff held my hand thru it. I still remember Nurse Dani calling me with results of my pregnancy test saying "Happy Mother's Day". It is not going to work for everyone. For those people who do need help..I would definitely tell them to see Dr Maclin. I don't remember the cost. It was a lot to us but oh so worth it.

04/03/09 4 4 5 5 As the husband part of the infertility equation, I can honestly say that the hater who made those negative comments about Dr. Maclin is either someone who is directing blame at Dr. Maclin for their lack of success in this low-odds endeavor or someone with some other ax to grind. Dr. Maclin is one of the most skilled and compassionate doctors that you will ever encounter. She seeks out input from her peers for complex cases and will do anything she can to help you overcome infertility. NOTE: We were unsuccessful. As for her staff - no group is perfect but we saw no evidence of systemic problems with her staff or their training. A note on punctuality: If Dr. Maclin kept you waiting, it was because she was spending more time with another patient - she felt that she needed to. Take that, troll/hater!  Respond

22/02/08 1 1 1 1 I have never dealt with a more abrasive, rude, and insensitive doctor's office than Dr. Victoria Maclin's office in Omaha, NE. It is difficult enough having to deal with infertility, but to have to tolerate the callous and inconsiderate staff she has working for her makes this, hands down, the worst experience I have ever been through. Dr. Maclin not only has a negligent staff working for her, but she herself lacks any bedside manner. If I were to do this all over again, I would have gone to Dr. Maud Doherty's office from the start.
