[Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology] is small. Some people prefer more doctors and more going on, this feels very boutique. I don't love Yolanda in administration. She has said frustrating and ignorant things, like asking me where my other baby is when I came in for one of my transfers. I don't have a baby...There are times I felt like I was being brushed off as emotional. It a was brief, but I felt it.

Describe your experience with Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.
It's small. Some people prefer more doctors and more going on, this feels very boutique. I don't love Yolanda in administration. She has said frustrating and ignorant things, like asking me where my other baby is when I came in for one of my transfers. I don't have a baby.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Naj and all of the staff seem to take extra care to make me feel human, important, valued, and not alone. They always know who I am when calling, when I come in, they know exactly what stage I'm at.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
There are times when I don't feel the communication is at its best. Once I had to double check instructions that were given because I was pretty sure the dosage was wrong - and it was. That could have been a big problem. However, I mentioned it to the doctor, and I don't ever remember seeing that nurse again. Other than that, I have loved the nurses. They feel with me - good and bad. I don't ever feel like I am annoying them or asking too many questions.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Sam Najmabadi?
I appreciate that Dr. Naj tells it like it is. I also feel he doesn't over-tell. I have friends undergoing treatment who ask me things about levels and numbers and certain hormones that I have no idea what they're talking about....and for me, I like that. When my second IVF didn't take, I felt like Dr. Naj almost took it harder than I did! He is invested in what he does.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sam Najmabadi?
There are times I felt like I was being brushed off as emotional. It a was brief, but I felt it.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sam Najmabadi.
IUIs started at $1000 before meds, and increased as meds increased. IVF started at $8900 and then meds, plus ICSI, plus storage fees added up.

[Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology is] a nice environment with all of the latest technology tucked behind a decor to feel a bit less like a doctors office and more 'homey'...[The nurse] was more reserved than Dr Naj, but very kind and competant.

Describe your experience with Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.
A nice environment with all of the latest techology tucked behind a decor to feel a bit less like a doctors office and more 'homey'
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He always took the time to explain everything to us, and was very straight forward. He heard everything we said, and didnt beat around the bush.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
She was more reserved than Dr Naj, but very kind and competant
How was your experience with Sam Najmabadi?
The nurses are very friendly and competant, the facility is a nice, calming environment. dr Naj is fantastic. He doesnt coddle, and tells it like it is, but showed a strong respect for my need to understand everything technically. He spent all the time we wanted explaining every step and every decision we needed to make. Something I found as a rarity amongst other doctors.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sam Najmabadi?
Understand he isnt someone who will sit and cry with you. He's an intelligent, compassionate man who is trying to help you achieve your goal. He delivers good and bad news as straight forward as possible. He's well informed, and very good at what he does. I highly recommend him.
Describe the protocols Sam Najmabadi used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I had to have high dosages of all of the drugs as I wasnt reacting. My egg quality was poor, but Dr Naj respected my need to oursue alternative medicine before I was ready for egg donation. He recommended people to help me, and I ultimately came back to proceed with him. We now have healthy, beautiful twins.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sam Najmabadi.
Roughly $17,000 for IVF but I needed a very large dosage of the medications (which was purchased through a pharmacy but included in that quote)
