We went to ORM after my previous OBGYN was unresponsive to our concerns after a year of trying to get pregnant. Dr Kennard listened with empathy and validated our concerns. Thanks to Dr Kennard and the stellar staff at ORM, we have two healthy (and amazing) boys- 3 years old and 3 months through IVF. The team was clear about cost, explaining the process, and expectations. Dr Kennard is to-the-point and extremely knowledgeable while being kind and surprisingly funny. We highly suggest ORM to all those looking to expand their family! – Penny B.

My wife and I used Ohio Reproductive to aid us in expanding our family. This was our first experience, so we were not very informed other than research we had done. We had the pleasure of seeing Dr Kennard, and loved her right away. She was as excited as we were when we saw the heartbeat of our little one, and was SO supportive. If you want a doctor who is incredibly intelligent, informed, helpful, supportive, and straight forward, give her a call. Side note for those of you that care; Dr. Kennard is very supportive and LGBTQ+ friendly. I can’t imagine having worked with anyone else. A+ for her, but as a whole, everyone we came into contact with was friendly and helpful from the start. – Meagan M.
