Attention to Detail

Attention to detail is on a 1 - 10 scale, and is scored based on the rate, and severity, of errors committed by the clinic according to the patients.

For example, a severe error might be failing to inform a patient of critical information, while a small error might be failing to call a patient with results.

CDC Success Rates

This is the most recent data from the CDC. The CDC cautions that it should not be used to compare doctors and clinics. This data represents the outcomes of IVF cycles when using a person's own eggs.

For more information please see our FAQs.

Where you see a “?” on the chart, a clinic has done fewer than 20 cycles in this category and age range, so the CDC says showing percentages from this small data set would be misleading and unreliable.

Dr. Kashani looked at all the reports and records from all my previous transfers and made a completely customized plan for me and took a natural cycle approach. During my transfer week, she did some immunology medicine along with other medicines and after the transfer, she monitored me very closely and prescribed my medicine accordingly...She is also open-minded and always asked about my thoughts and how I felt about each plan to make sure I was comfortable...
Dr. Kashani has a great team. I was always welcomed with a big smile and everyone from the front office to the nurses is incredibly good and treated me as their family. Moreover, the clinic is very modern, clean, organized, and well-maintained...Dr. Kashani and her entire team felt like the closest family every time I saw them...They were like the hope that I needed on this difficult journey...
How was your experience with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
Dr. Kashani is a true angel to me. Her care for me was above and beyond any medical care, I have got or seen in my life. After having 4 failed IVF cycles with 2 other clinics Dr. Kashani did my 5th FET transfer and I'm so happy to say I'm now almost end of my 23 weeks with a healthy baby. Dr. Kashani is truly compassionate and knowledgeable and always thinks about new ideas if that can help me. She is also open-minded and always asked about my thoughts and how I felt about each plan to make sure I was comfortable. After my FET she would give me calls about any updates and even call to discuss a change of treatment plan as needed based on my test results while she was out of town with her family during a holiday weekend! My infertility journey started with Dr. Kashani 5 years back when I was diagnosed with a complete uterine septum during my 1st pregnancy which I concived naturally but ended up with a miscarriage. Dr. Kashani did several hysteroscopies to correct my uterine septum. It was not easy but she did so amazingly well that later other doctors appreciated how nicely it was done. Later I had to move to other clinics and doctors due to my insurance but Dr. Kashani always remained as my doctor and I took advice from her many times during my first 4 FETs. Unfortunately, all 4 FETs were unsuccessful with other doctors and we decided to do the last FET with Dr. Kashani. Dr. Kashani looked at all the reports and records from all my previous transfers and made a completely customized plan for me for this FET. After the transfer, she kept me very closely monitored and made this a successful pregnancy. My husband and I have always dreamed of this and Dr. Kashani made the dream a reality. She truly cares for her patients in such a way that sometimes I feel she is my family than a doctor, even after I “graduated” from her to my OB doctor, Dr. Kashani checked how I’m doing and I know she is always there for me and I can’t wait to introduce our little miracle to her, hopefully very soon.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
Dr. Kashani is absolutely passionate about her medical expertise as well as keeping her up to date with new medical technologies and finding what was best for her patient's treatment. If you’re reading this review to find a doctor then I would say if you have an opportunity to see her please do so and you’ll be ever grateful to yourself that you made that decision.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
This is one of the best traits of Dr. Kashani, she always treated me as me, not just another patient. She always listen to any concerns in full detail and never rushed and then give her advice according to my situation.

Dr. Kashani and her entire team felt like the closest family every time I saw them. I always felt everyone did their best to make my dream come true. They were like the hope that I needed on this difficult journey and I was not wrong. Vivian is really good at her responsibilities. She took care of all the scheduling, prescription, billing questions, and admin work. One major call out would be she is always very responsive to emails very promptly even on a very busy day. Karen is one of the best nurses I have seen. She is really expert in what she does but also very compassionate towards me all the time. One example is, I have rolling veins in my arms and everyone faces difficulties to draw blood from them but Karen never missed it even a single time.

How was your experience with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
Dr. Kashani is a gem and I cannot say enough great things about her! After 3 failed rounds with our previous IVF doctor, we found Dr. Kashani and are so lucky that we did. From the moment we had our consultation with her, we knew she was the one. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, and is open to trying new ideas. Dr. Kashani truly cares about her patients and always had a few plans in mind going forward. She is open minded and always asked about my thoughts and how I felt about each plan to make sure I was comfortable. She details each cycle to her patients instead of treating us all the same. Dr. Kashani's dedication to her patients is truly heartwarming. She would give me calls about updates after hours and even called to discuss an adjusted plan while she was out of town with her family during a holiday weekend! After years of infertility and our first transfer with Dr. Kashani, we are now pregnant and it is all thanks to her! My husband and I have always dreamed of this time and Dr. Kashani made it possible!

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
She [Dr. Kashani] provides such a calming presence but also provides you with the facts. She has a great bedside manner, is extremely knowledgeable, and does so in a way that is supportive. You feel like you are the only patient...She explains in detail, often with visuals to help you understand. In addition, she always leaves time for questions, and never makes you feel like any of your questions are dumb or not important...
[Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG] coordinator at the clinic is also amazing...Clean, welcoming, punctual. They are very good to send you information, pricing, timelines, etc...In addition, they are able to accommodate you on the schedule so you don't have to wait months and months...She [nurse] is always answering her emails at what I feel is lightning fast rate (even when I don't expect a response until the next day) and is very familiar with the patient's treatment journey...
How was your experience with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
First and foremost, Dr. Kashani is punctual. I never have to wait more than a couple minutes. She takes the time to complete her exam or procedure, and always leaves time to sit with her and review what was done or discussed during the exam or procedure. She explains in detail, often with visuals to help you understand. In addition, she always leaves time for questions, and never makes you feel like any of your questions are dumb or not important. She makes you feel like you are her only patient and your time is important to her. She also has great positive energy, but not to the point where it's excessive or annoying. There is just a positive light surrounding her that makes you feel comfortable sharing.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
Nothing. She's empathetic which is #1 in my book.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
Dr. Kashani was a breath of fresh air. During infertility you question yourself and try to remain optimistic, but also cautious. She provides such a calming presence but also provides you with the facts. She has a great bedside manner, is extremely knowledgeable, and does so in a way that is supportive. You feel like you are the only patient. I struggled mentally with this process, not being in a place previously to be able to start earlier, but I am so glad I found her to be the one to help me on my journey. She understands my concerns and helps me through them. In addition, I think it is worth mentioning, her coordinator at the clinic is also amazing. A lot of time the scheduling is done through her, and it shows immediately when you walk through the door what type of care you are going to receive. I feel extremely lucky. I hope that my treatments will work, but I feel confident I am receiving top care.
Describe the protocols Banafsheh Kashani used in your cycles at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG and their degree of success.
I have completed additional testing after previous to understand how much my diminished ovarian reserve is diminishing, to make sure we track it accordingly. In addition, we have done a couple cycles with clomid/letrazole to make sure my body was responding accordingly. Due to my husband's double vasectomy reversals, we had been told by others that his sperm count was not enough to do IUI, so we figured we would have to go straight to IVF. However, she recommended her lab test a sample to get a better understanding of what it looked like. After review, she noted that the quality was ok, better than expected, and enough to try an IUI cycle, if we wanted to. She gave us the choice and reviewed the calendar/timeline and success rates to help us see how it would affect our overall timeline. We ended up moving forward with an IUI cycle and appreciated her time and due diligence not just to accept someone else's review of the sperm, rather took time for her lab to review.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG. (Assigned nurse: Vivian Chao)
Vivian is amazing. She is welcoming, thorough, communicative, knowledgeable and sets the tone of the front office and throughout the journey. She is always answering her emails at what I feel is lightning fast rate (even when I don't expect a response until the next day) and is very familiar with the patient's treatment journey. Again, it shows the care that Dr. Kashani and office has for their patients.
Describe your experience with Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG.
Clean, welcoming, punctual. They are very good to send you information, pricing, timelines, etc. As usual (and expected) there is a lot of paperwork, and they do a great job of keeping track of what needs to be provided. In addition, they are able to accommodate you on the schedule so you don't have to wait months and months.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG.
Very reasonable, understanding the complexities of the process. I found her packages for IVF were competitive with other areas in Orange County, CA. And they were clearly defined. There are costs associated with each step of the process, but they were clearly defined, not just what the cost was, but also how many visits of items would be required (or potentially required) per cycle. I didn't go into a cycle not knowing the min or max of the current treatment plan.

She [Dr. Kashani] has a true passion for what she does and it shows. Both in delivering tough and good news, she is there for her patients with true compassion and empathy. She is always available to her patients and it is such a comfort knowing that a quick response is always going to be the norm...so thorough and attentive to detail....
Dr Kashani is surrounded by a great team! Her clinic is so easy to work with whether it is scheduling appointments (which run on time!), dealing with ordering and purchasing meds, and ease of communication. Both Vivian and Natalie [nurses] were so wonderful to work with throughout the whole process...You will be able to talk to somebody who is truly on your team, supporting you every step of the way through the joys and disappointments that go along with this process...
How was your experience with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
Dr Kashani is such a gem! Our hearts are filled with so much happiness and we owe much of that to Dr Kashani. It has not been an easy journey for us, but we knew that it likely wouldn’t be based on our previous infertility experience with our first child. It is thanks to Dr Kashani that we rode the many waves of ups and downs again and stuck it through these past two years. Dr Kashani is so thorough and attentive to detail which matters so much to patients like me who had quite the previous infertility and IVF history to deal with. She was always willing to think and work outside the box to continuously adapt and find solutions while still being cautious and mindful of the costs involved. I appreciated her pragmatism and realism in a field that oftentimes doesn’t take emotional and financial toll into account. She did exactly that and was so dedicated to helping us grow our family to include a sibling for our son. We received such great care and every appointment and procedure was with Dr Kashani herself. Navigating infertility can leave someone so fragile and vulnerable, but not with Dr Kashani. The wealth of information that she goes over and prepares you for builds so much trust, respect, and connection between doctor and patient that it helps to circumvent so many of the insecure feelings. We are so very excited and filled with gratitude to be pregnant! We can’t thank Dr. Kashani and her team enough and hope others dealing with infertility in the area are lucky enough to work with her. She will be there with you every step of the way!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
Don’t wait or delay if you have any reservations about your fertility. In dealing with infertility, it is important to know about all your options early so you can make the most informed decision. Schedule a consultation with Dr Kashani who will give you an honest and thorough assessment of your situation. You will be able to talk to somebody who is truly on your team, supporting you every step of the way through the joys and disappointments that go along with this process.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
This is what sets Dr Kashani apart from so many other IVF doctors - her warmth! She has a true passion for what she does and it shows. Both in delivering tough and good news, she is there for her patients with true compassion and empathy.

She [Dr. Kashani] takes the time to inform her patients and delivers all news in the most reassuring fashion. She explores various avenues in order to provide the most efficient care for her patients. Her passion for her work is evident from the first meeting. I have referred a handful of people to her and every single one has had the same feedback: she is not only brilliant but so kind!...We expected to continue the hormone shots for two additional days but when my estrogen plateaued unexpectedly, Dr. Kashani had to make a game time decision. She made the proper adjustments and arrangements to get the most eggs possible. We ended up having a very successful retrieval!
The nursing staff [at Dr. Kashani's office] is very patient, caring, knowledgeable and efficient making the entire experience very comfortable!...The doctor/clinic costs are very competitive (I shopped around)!

She also provided me several resources that could help cover the cost.

I saw Dr. Kashani after having three miscarriages. I was extremely discouraged before my visit but left the appointment SO hopeful. She listened attentively and explained things in detail (without using too much medical jargon). She always took the time to answer all of my questions (there were a lot) and never made me feel rushed. Her treatment plan and close monitoring worked and I got pregnant on the first cycle. I was honestly so sad when I "graduated" and had to go back to my regular OB! So grateful we found Dr. Kashani!

How was your experience with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
I can’t say enough about Dr. Kashani, she has been so wonderful and we now have our baby girl on the way! We really didn’t know anything about IVF or where to start. We had gone to another fertility doctor prior and it was all so confusing and stressful. We literally hated having to go into that office because we never knew what was going on and the staff wasn’t the friendliest either, fortunately for us, we met Dr Kashani by chance and immediately made the move over to her.

I’ve never received that kind of care before...She treated me with the utmost care and like a friend rather than a patient. She empathized with my pain and celebrated with me when treatments were successful...
The nursing staff was wonderful here [Kashani]. Very compassionate and kind. Karen held my hand and let me squeeze it when I was having a painful biopsy. Vivian helped me with shots and always worked with Dr. Kashani to schedule me at times that were best with my work schedule...Great communication, care, and kindness. Easy to access documents through portal. Comfortable and clean clinic. I also loved that I never had to wait long for the doctor to come in while I had that paper sheet over me...

Describe the protocols Banafsheh Kashani used in your cycles at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG and their degree of success.
We started with IUI as I had unexplained infertility and PCOS and my partner had male factor. She adjusted medications each cycle to improve odds but all 4 tries were unsuccessful. From there, we decided to proceed with IVF. We had one egg retrieval that resulted in 5 pgt tested embryos. First transfer was a frozen medicated cycle. Sadly, I had a miscarriage. So we did further testing with a mock trial (ERA, Receptiva). I tested positive on the receptiva test which indicates inflammation likely linked to endometriosis. Dr. kashani got me in the following month with a Nancy’s Nook approved endometriosis excision specialist and I had the endo surgically removed. Then we had a second frozen medicated transfer once I was healed about 2 months later. That one did not implant. So, for the third transfer the following month we made a few changes including doing a modified natural cycle. I will be 18 weeks pregnant tomorrow :).

Great communication, care, and kindness. Easy to access documents through portal. Comfortable and clean clinic.

That never happened here!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG.
I don’t have fertility insurance so it was costly but not more so than other practices. It was around 17k for the embryo transfer and pgt testing. Around 4K per transfer. Meds I paid for separately. Around $1500 per IUI cycle.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. K. After trying to conceive for a little over 2 years with no success and I was referred to Dr. K...The plan presented to me was very specific to my individual circumstances. Communication was constant, the doctor made sure I understood all options, helped me weigh the pros and cons and made sure we were always comfortable with how things were progressing.
The [Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG] clinic is small and has a mom and pop feel to it (but it top notch in terms of research and resources). I was previously at a very large clinic where I certainly felt more like a number vs. a person- this was not the case here...The plan presented to me was very specific to my individual circumstances.

How was your experience with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. K. After trying to conceive for a little over 2 years with no success and I was referred to Dr. K. Within about 8 weeks, I had my egg retrieval and a diagnosis as to why we were experiencing issues. Fertility journeys are never a straight line and no two stories are the same. While we experienced a couple of setbacks along the way we learned something new with each step of the process and Dr. K was very thoughtful when explaining each new finding. She presented multiple options, helped us weigh the pros and cons of each decision, and listened to our needs and concerns. IVF can be a long and daunting process when you look at it as a whole but the team here does an excellent job at taking things one day at a time and breaking things down into manageable steps. We finally took home our miracle baby (a 2nd generation IVF baby) in October 2022. We cannot thank Dr. K enough and would recommend for anyone experiencing fertility issues.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?

I am beyond humbled and grateful that a baby will be joining our family in a few months after a year of multiple failed IVF miscarriages, shots, tears, meds, countless doc appointments, lab work, more shots, and more tears. And I owe it all to the phenomenal Dr. Kashani. I’m no stranger to the physical and mental strain of the IVF world, and after dealing with two other doctors prior to Dr. K, my only regret was that I didn’t find her sooner.
Everyone [at Banafsheh N. Kashani clinic] is very kind and personable and they are super responsive. Infertility is something that I wish no one has to ever go through, but I am so grateful that Dr. Kashani and her team were by my side every step of the way...It’s a smaller clinic so you don’t feel just like a number. You can call a number and talk to someone who knows you right away, unlike so many other clinics where you need to be transferred multiple times to then leave a message and hope for a call back 24 hours later.

I’m no stranger to the physical and mental strain of the IVF world, and after dealing with two other doctors prior to Dr. K, my only regret was that I didn’t find her sooner. Pregnancy post miscarriage robs you of that everyday excitement being replaced with fear and worry of losing another one, but having a doctor who genuinely cared and showed empathy was such a huge blessing. She was always very knowledgeable, calm and reassuring while being transparent, and felt more like a best friend who also happened to be your doctor. Her staff is of the same caliber.

Pregnancy post miscarriage robs you of that everyday excitement being replaced with fear and worry of losing another one, but having a doctor who genuinely cared and showed empathy was such a huge blessing. She was always very knowledgeable, calm and reassuring while being transparent, and felt more like a best friend who also happened to be your doctor. Her staff is of the same caliber. Everyone is very kind and personable and they are super responsive. Infertility is something that I wish no one has to ever go through, but I am so grateful that Dr. Kashani and her team were by my side every step of the way.
Describe your experience with Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG.
It’s a smaller clinic so you don’t feel just like a number. You can call a number and talk to someone who knows you right away, unlike so many other clinics where you need to be transferred multiple times to then leave a message and hope for a call back 24 hours later.

Dr. Kashani monitored me every other day, and adjusted medications accordingly. I started off with 375 IU Follistim, and 1 vial of Menopur. After a few days we added Ganrelix, and then later we upped the Menopur to 2 vials. On the last few days we increased Follistim to 425IU...Dr. Kashani was very personal in her approach with me, she called me to deliver news personally both good and bad. She's very empathetic and I could feel she genuinely cared about me and my results...
The staff [at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG] are all caring and friendly, and are super responsive at all times. I had a bit of a crisis and they even came in on a Sunday to help me...The clinic was very clean, organized, and felt like a warm and inviting environment...She [IVF care coordinator] was on top of all the paperwork I needed, would answer my questions with patience despite how repetitive, remained calm when I got too hormonal and frustrated at times...
How was your experience with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
Most doctors don't want to even look at previous doctors' test results and diagnosis, but she was willing to review what I'd done in the past. I had pretty poor follicle count and AMH levels from a previous consultation, but Dr. Kashani told me she had reason to hope things could turn around for me. We re-tested, made some lifestyle changes, and got a cyst checked out by a specialist before we decided to proceed. I never felt like just a number, just a patient, or just someone they were trying to upsell. Dr. Kashani was very personal in her approach with me, she called me to deliver news personally both good and bad. She's very empathetic and I could feel she genuinely cared about me and my results. Not everything went smoothly for me, and I was naturally (and hormonal!) upset and anxious, and she remained calm through it all and I knew I could trust her to make the right decisions for me. From the smallest questions at night when I was confused on how to mix my medication, to a huge mistake I made on the night of my trigger shot, Dr. Kashani was available, picked up the phone, and talked me down from crisis. This type of procedure is emotional, draining and stressful and I can't imagine being in anyone else's hands. I truly believe her positivity and compassion helped me get results no one ever expected for me, and kept me from having a total breakdown.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
Trust her. Be open and honest and ask all your questions, tell the truth and nothing is too embarrassing or stupid. The more she knows the more she can help you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
Dr. Kashani and her staff not only treated me like a human, they treated me like family. I'd called over 10 different clinics based on referrals from friends and acquaintances, but ended up finding Dr. Kashani through great reviews on FertilityIQ and something told me to give her a chance. From my first phone consult, I never felt like I was being sold on anything, she wasn't exploiting my fear and making me feel like I'd need multiple rounds, and she had a warm manner that put me at ease right away.
Describe the protocols Banafsheh Kashani used in your cycles at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG and their degree of success.
I did Follistim, Menopur, and Ganrelix for my treatment, followed by the trigger shot. Dr. Kashani monitored me every other day, and adjusted medications accordingly. I started off with 375 IU Follistim, and 1 vial of Menopur. After a few days we added Ganrelix, and then later we upped the Menopur to 2 vials. On the last few days we increased Follistim to 425IU.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG. (Assigned nurse: Vivian (care coordinator), & a nurse but I can't recall her name!)
The staff was incredible, so helpful and caring. I can't recall the nurses name for the life of me, but she was very warm and caring, super gentle with all the bloodwork (I am usually hysterical during blood draws) and very empathetic when I had a bit of a crisis in my treatment. Vivian, the IVF care coordinator is a gem. She was so proactive with communication, both email and phone in the 2 months prior to my procedure. She was on top of all the paperwork I needed, would answer my questions with patience despite how repetitive, remained calm when I got too hormonal and frustrated at times. She also knew I was very concerned about costs, and when I told her I was researching discounts through different pharma companies and European pharmacies, she helped me fill out all the extra paperwork I needed and gave me the idea to ask one pharmacy to match another pharmacy's aid program. I couldn't have done it without her, and I save several thousand dollars.
Describe your experience with Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG.
The clinic was very clean, organized, and felt like a warm and inviting environment. Sounds stupid, but even their decor was nice and the room they teach you injections in is so inviting and cozy. The staff are all caring and friendly, and are super responsive at all times. I had a bit of a crisis and they even came in on a Sunday to help me. The only small area of weakness is I think it would be great for patients to get hands on practice with the medications, mixing and injecting. I'm not sure if this is feasible, but the medications are high stakes and expensive, and its a lot of stress and pressure to do it on your own with the real thing. I think more practice to get a real feel for it would be helpful.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG.
$6000 fee for Dr. Kashani, I guess they were running a special of some sort? Initial phone consultation - free First Ultrasound - $190 (was out of network for my coverage) First Blood test- she told me to have my own doctor order it so it was covered Medication ~$2800 (I applied for an income based discount with the pharma, otherwise would have been double) $1600 - I had to pay for an additional procedure day and anesthesiologist because something went wrong with my first trigger shot. This was the discussed plan of action and I agreed to the extra cost to salvage my process, which was worth it in the end. Hopefully no one else ever has to pay that cost because they won't be in a situation like I was.

They [Banafsheh nurses] were always very kind, responsive and never made me feel like any questions I called with were a nuisance to them...The clinic’s greatest strengths are the warm, welcoming and supportive atmosphere Dr. Kashani and her entire exude. Not once did I ever feel anything but completely at ease with everyone I worked with in the clinic. Every visit felt like I was seen as a friend and not just another patient
How was your experience with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
There are truly no words that can adequately express how grateful my husband and I are to have found Dr. Kashani during our struggle with infertility. It has been a long, difficult 5+ year journey including the past 3 years since we began working with Dr. Kashani but we always felt we were in the best hands with her on our side - supporting us, guiding us and helping us plan next steps for each challenge we faced along the way. Not only is she very knowledgeable, she is also incredibly compassionate and makes you feel so much more like a friend than just another patient. We are now 25 weeks pregnant with a baby girl due in June and can’t possibly thank Dr. Kashani enough for everything she did to help get us here. Even after we “graduated” to our OB, Dr. Kashani has been there for us and we can’t wait to introduce our little miracle to her when she arrives. Thank you SO very much, Dr. Kashani!!!

Describe the protocols Banafsheh Kashani used in your cycles at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG and their degree of success.
I don’t remember any terminology in terms of specific protocols we followed but she always explained what we were doing and why for each treatment we underwent. Our 2nd/last IVF treatment cycle was optimized in the adjustments she made with the understanding my cycles are longer and therefore takes more time for my eggs to mature. We retrieved more than double the number of eggs compared to the first cycle and more than 80% were mature.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG. (Assigned nurse: Vivian)
Vivian and the entire nursing staff were wonderful to work with. They were always very kind, responsive and never made me feel like any questions I called with were a nuisance to them. They always reached out to Dr. Kashani with any questions they couldn’t immediately answer and got right back to me.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG.

We used GonalF and Menupur for a week prior to egg retrieval. Initially, my body reacted almost too well to the stims and Dr. Kashani quickly changed my dosage and monitored closely to keep follicles growing at a steady pace. Overall we were able to retrieve 26 eggs. Post retrieval I had a slight case of OHSS but was able to rid of symptoms within a week...compassionate and always made us feel like we were the only patients being seen. They were prompt to answer any questions we had even on the weekends.
The staff, like Dr. Kashani, are all compassionate, patient and great communicators. Natalie is a gem and very knowledgable about the whole process. Her bedside manners are great. I'd have her draw my blood every time if I could, she was that good! Our coordinator Vivian, is patient and a great communicator and was always available to help us. She even walked us through each step of stims shots the first couple nights!

Dr. Kashani was always so warm and welcoming to me. She adjusted her schedule around mine to assure the best treatment possible at the most convenient time for me. In every appointment I felt like she actually cared, unlike other doctors I have seen. She was always looking out for my best interest and made sure to form a close connection with me.
Every time I would come to the [Banafsheh Kashani] clinic, I noticed how clean and comfortable it was. They had cozy seats in the waiting room along with refreshments and snacks upon request. Every room that I went in was very well organized and sanitized. Overall, I loved the decor and design of the clinic. It made me feel warm and welcomed...My nurse was very sweet as well as extremely experienced in what she does. She always made me feel comfortable and cared for in every situation
How was your experience with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
Dr. Kashani is truly a blessing! I am so glad that I came across her and her clinic. I was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure at age 17. Every doctor and fertility specialist I had seen told me that there was a slim-to-low chance of me having kids in the future. I felt hopeless and like a lost cause. However, finding Dr. Kashani turned everything around. She was the first doctor to give me hope. With her empathetic personality and expertise in the field, I was confident that my fertility was in the hands of Dr. Kashani. She welcomed me in with open arms and looked at my case at every angle. She designed the best fertility treatment (oocyte cryopreservation/egg freezing) for me based on my individual needs. With every appointment and interaction that I had with Dr. Kashani, I truly felt cared for. I could tell that she would do anything and everything in her ability to give me the best chance at having kids of my own one day. The results of the treatment exceeded my expectations, which I certainly attribute to having the best fertility doctor ever! I am planning on doing another cycle of egg freezing and am definitely having Dr. Kashani be my doctor again. I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Kashani and I very highly recommend her.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
Tell Dr. Kashani about your goals and concerns up front so that she can tailor a treatment specifically to you. Also, feel free to message Dr. Kashani on the portal or through email. If you ever have a question, she will surely answer it!

Through every step of the way, Dr. Kashani thoroughly explained what she was doing and why she was doing it. For my treatment, egg freezing, I started taking Clomid (Dr. Kashani thought it would be best to start with a more conservative approach). My body was not responding to the pill form of Clomid, so I was instructed to start injections with Menopur and Ganirelix. These medications produced great results and, two weeks later, I underwent the egg retrieval procedure. The outcome exceeded my expectations and I was very happy with the results.

Dr. Kashani is a naturally warm and caring person...She makes everything easy. The medicine is delivered to you, she explains everything and calls to check on you. As pleasant as IVF can be, it’s that way because of her ability to communicate...will find alternatives to every issue that arises...She not only took care during my treatment but I had concerns once transferred to my OBGYN and she was helpful and caring then...
Dr. Kashani seems to have hired staff like herself. Everyone is caring and sweet. They all go out of there way for your comfort. This process is stressful and every time I lost my mind they communicated with me to help assure me and bring me back down...I felt the only weakness was in phlebotomy. I’m a hard stick so very few nurses can get me. It would be nice to have someone specialized. As for strengths - their caring demeanor and flexibility is amazing...
How was your experience with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
I used Dr. Kashani for IUI at her previous hospital in 2019 to conceive my son. The time she came up with the date of insemination was the time I got pregnant after 2 unsuccessful IUIs. When I couldn’t get pregnant after a blocked tube and 2 IUIS at my previous clinic I reached out to her to start IVF. I had already done an intake months before but had put it off to continue IUI. Once I called, I was in for an appointment the next week and starting IVF. She makes everything easy. The medicine is delivered to you, she explains everything and calls to check on you. As pleasant as IVF can be, it’s that way because of her ability to communicate. She’s just a wonderful doctor and even better human.
