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. Corfman tells it like it is, which we appreciated.... I've come to realize that Dr. C is kind of "old school" and so is the way he does IVF. He has one cookie-cutter IVF protocol and I think it probably works for a lot of people, but it didn't feel right for us. We wanted to work with a doctor who would be more considerate of my low AMH, and would modify the protocol accordingly.... If you feel a "standard" IVF protocol is a good fit for you, Dr. C is your guy!
[Midwest Ctr for Repro Health is] a smaller clinic with a more homey feel. It was never busy in the waiting room, I rarely saw other patients. The clinic is easy to get a hold of and they return calls promptly. I always wished they used the portal/email more since sometimes that's easier than using the phone. One big weakness is that the eligibility criteria for their "VIP" program for IVF are tough. Basically, if they aren't confident you will have success after 1 or 3 cycles of IVF, you probably will not qualify.
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
We were referred to Dr. Corfman by a friend of ours (who had success doing IVF with him). My husband and I both felt that he was thorough and straightforward during our consultation. Despite my low AMH (1.1), he put us in the "unexplained infertility" category, though this diagnosis was not verbally mentioned to us, it was just written on our paperwork. He recommended we do anywhere from 0-6 medicated cycles (letrozole, trigger, progesterone) and made us feel confident we would not need IVF. We left the consultation feeling hopeful and decided we would do 2-3 of the medicated cycles. Our first medicated cycle was canceled because they found a cyst on my ovaries during the baseline ultrasound. Dr. C recommended I do a month of birth control to get rid of the cyst and prevent others. The next month we were able to go ahead with the medicated cycle and everything went well. However, when the cycle resulted in a negative beta, my husband and I elected to pursue IVF. During IVF prep, Dr. C ordered day 3 blood tests (AMH, FSH, etc), a saline sonogram, and he put me on birth control pills for down-regulation, which I would be taking for 5 (!) weeks so that I fit into his schedule. When I went in for the saline sono (which he performed and did a great job), he told me my AMH had dropped to 0.7. Then, during the procedure, he could see that my ovaries looked "small" (they counted 6 follicles). He then explained that having fewer eggs meant less chance of success with IVF. He said that we would go ahead with stims, but if I didn't have at least 4 eggs by retrieval, the cycle would be canceled at that point and we would be out $6k-$8k. Needless to say, that appointment did not make me feel good. My husband and I decided to press pause and seek a second opinion. I've come to realize that Dr. C is kind of "old school" and so is the way he does IVF. He has one cookie-cutter IVF protocol and I think it probably works for a lot of people, but it didn't feel right for us. We wanted to work with a doctor who would be more considerate of my low AMH, and would modify the protocol accordingly.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Do your research. If you feel a "standard" IVF protocol is a good fit for you, Dr. C is your guy! If, like me, you have low AMH or need more specialized care for another reason, I would suggesting seeking treatment elsewhere.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dr. Corfman tells it like it is, which we appreciated. The nurses, who you will work with the most if you choose to go to this clinic, are so kind and considerate. They wish you a genuine "good luck" with each treatment, and they express sincere condolences when things don't go as hoped. They're also easy to reach by phone.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
For my medicated cycle, I was on letrozole from day 3 to 12 of my cycle. I don't remember the dose. I responded well to letrozole and it looked like I might ovulate 2-3 eggs which is what we wanted. The letrozole did lower my estrogen enough that they started me on estrace (oral). On day 12 we were instructed to do a Ovidrel trigger, have sex that night, and have sex again on day 14. On day 15 I started crinone (vaginal progesterone). Beta was negative and they had me stop the estrogen and progesterone supplementation. We started IVF prep with Dr C and he had me doing 5 weeks of birth control pills for down-regulation (we then sought a second opinion and stopped treatment with Dr C).
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
All of the nurses were so kind. They were also easy to reach by phone. The nurses manage pretty much all of monitoring and appointments. They are good about telling you what they see during an ultrasound (lining measurement, number of follicles, follicle measurements, etc) which is so nice.

Basically, if they aren't confident you will have success after 1 or 3 cycles of IVF, you probably will not qualify. It became clear to us that the VIP program is more of a money making thing for them than it is a way to make IVF more accessible and successful for their patients.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
The medicated cycle (no IUI) was about $1500 I believe, mostly because of monitoring. One round of IVF was going to be close to $20k.
Describe Randle Corfman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Dr C seems to be more open to multiple embryo transfer than other clinics. He explained the success rates of transferring 1 vs 2 embryos - I think he said it was a 45% (or so) chance that a singleton would stick, and if we transferred 2 embryos, it was a 68% chance 1 would stick and 70% chance they both would. We didn't discuss the risks of carrying multiples in detail, and we never discussed transferring more than 2.

Dr. Corfman is an intelligent, experienced reproductive endocrinologist. He clearly explained the likely underlying cause of our issues - from consult to failed transfer - and we felt confident in his knowledge. He also has the best bedside manner of any of the REs with whom we've worked... I felt he was personally invested in our success. He spoke to me like a human, rather than a patient, and treated me as I imagine he would treat his own family during consults and procedures.
The nursing staff at Dr. Corfman's clinic [Midwest Ctr for Reproductive Health] are amazing. They knew us by name and treated us as such. I have a fear of needles, and they often brought in their "best" needle nurse to perform my blood draws.... After our failed transfer, we received a handwritten note from one of the nurses. I could go on and on with the ways Dr. Corfman and his entire staff helped us to feel human and respected during this process.
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dr. Corfman is an intelligent, experienced reproductive endocrinologist. He clearly explained the likely underlying cause of our issues - from consult to failed transfer - and we felt confident in his knowledge. He also has the best bedside manner of any of the REs with whom we've worked (2 treatment REs and 1 consult RE). I felt he was personally invested in our success. He spoke to me like a human, rather than a patient, and treated me as I imagine he would treat his own family during consults and procedures. Unfortunately, our fresh transfer was not successful. And our stimming and retrieval also did not go as planned. When we consulted with Dr. Corfman after the failed transfer, it appeared there was information available at the time of the egg retrieval and fertilization regarding the quality of my eggs/embryos that was not shared with us throughout the process. Given what we know now (after consulting with other REs and embryologists), we would have liked to know the reality of our situation prior to the transfer. It may not have changed our course, but it would have more realistically managed our expectations. Dr. Corfman also indicated at our post-transfer consult that there would be no changes to our protocol, should we move forward with another round of IVF. He recommended donor eggs and possibly donor sperm. After consulting with another RE, we learned there are potential changes to make to the protocol and are in the process of a second round right now. It took time for me to be able to write this review of Dr. Corfman, as I have tremendous respect and admiration for him. My greatest hope was that our first round had worked in his clinic. That being said, I think it's also important to share that the recommendations he made for us (no changes to protocol and donor eggs/sperm) varied greatly from what another RE has recommended.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
If your round of treatment is unsuccessful, definitely consider consulting with another RE.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dr. Corfman and his staff are phenomenal. Throughout the entire process, I NEVER felt like a number. Dr. Corfman, his nurses, and his front desk staff knew us by name and treated us warmly and with kindness during every visit. After our failed transfer, we received a handwritten note from one of the nurses. I could go on and on with the ways Dr. Corfman and his entire staff helped us to feel human and respected during this process.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
While working with Dr. Corfman, we utilized the following: Pretreament: endometrial scratch Treatment: IVF with ICSI; Gonal F and Menopur; Ganirelix; Lupron and Pregnyl Rationale for treatment: male factor infertility and PCOS
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
The nursing staff at Dr. Corfman's clinic are amazing. They knew us by name and treated us as such. I have a fear of needles, and they often brought in their "best" needle nurse to perform my blood draws. They held my hand, cared for me when the egg retrieval drugs made me sick, and sent a handwritten note when our transfer failed. The nurses are also incredibly organized. A nurse spoke with me for an hour to introduce me to the process. Another nurse spent an hour with my husband and I during to teach injections (just us - no other couples). Nurses called after every blood draw to review next steps. They were available for emergency calls and never made us feel our questions were unreasonable or a bother. There were ZERO mistakes made by the nursing staff during our entire process. Or at least none that weren't fixed! We've since moved on to a different clinic, and we miss the nurses from Dr. Corfman's office. They are SO on top of their game and the best we've worked with throughout our infertility treatments.
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Dr. Corfman, his nurses, and his front desk staff provide organized, knowledgeable care with excellent bedside manner. If your particular fertility circumstances fit Dr. Corfman's methods of treatment, this is the place to go. Unfortunately, our circumstances did not result in a successful transfer, and Dr. Corfman felt we had limited chances with our own eggs and sperm. As a result, we consulted with another clinic and are in the middle of a second round with another doctor.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
We paid approximately $20,000 for a round of IVF with ICSI and fresh transfer.
Describe Randle Corfman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Our doctor recommended single embryo transfer (based on grade of embryo. genetic testing was not recommended). This was recommended due to my age and the high risks associated with multiples.

We worked with Dr. Corfman a few times. He performed my HSG and it was done without any pain. He was very knowledgable and descriptive in our initial consultation and always very kind when we saw him in the clinic...I think we waited a little long to begin using fertility medications after natural cycles, so I would definitely say advocate for yourself and your wants.
Our entire process with this [Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] clinic has been pretty seamless. We have created a solid a plan, have really felt a lot of support from the nurses and doctors at the location. I really enjoy that I can complete my blood test or anything else that needs to be done during my visits. The strengths of the clinic would be their overall ability to educate and they are prompt on next steps.

Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
We started with 5 attempts on natural cycles, because my LH surge and cycle were very regular. After the 5th failed attempt we went in for another consultation and began Letrozole, a trigger shot, estrogen and progesterone supplements.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
My insurance covers some of the treatments done with Dr. Corfman. I would say in general for the IUI procedure we are paying about $300 a try, not counting the donor sperm. All in on 6 tries, medication, HSG, we have probably spent close to $10,000

Dr. Corfman is open and straight forward but also talks to you like a person and does what he can to make you feel as comfortable as possible. He has no problem taking the time to address and concerns and questions he has the ability to answer...We were given all the options available to us with explanations. We wanted to try IUI with timed intercourse as it was by far the least expensive option and we had no reason to believe it wouldn't work. After a few rounds of that we moved to IVF because we just were not getting result with IUI and there was nothing pointing to my eggs being a problem or being an inhospitable environment
[the Midwest Center nurses] were always friendly and did what they could to make you feel comfortable. The voice mails were always very direct and informative. I did however have a few times that I believe they could have provided more info and/or suggestions for issues I would bring up at appointments...Strengths are friendliness and compassion where appropriate. High success rates from my understanding

Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
Other than endometriosis and a missing fallopian tube due to prior ectopic pregnancy I had unexplained infertility. We were given all the options available to us with explanations. We wanted to try IUI with timed intercourse as it was by far the least expensive option and we had no reason to believe it wouldn't work. After a few rounds of that we moved to IVF because we just were not getting result with IUI and there was nothing pointing to my eggs being a problem or being an inhospitable environment. After learning some things about how my eggs responded to my husbands sperm it was decided that we could either do another round with my eggs with the ICSY procedure and hope for better results or we could move to donor eggs. We opted for donor eggs because a current donor at the clinic had success with donating and that couple having a successful pregnancy so we wanted our best best and hoped for more eggs to be able to freeze for potential future children. We were successful with the donor egg, unfortunately only 2 reached a mature stage so we did not have any to freeze but we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
They were always friendly and did what they could to make you feel comfortable. The voice mails were always very direct and informative. I did however have a few times that I believe they could have provided more info and/or suggestions for issues I would bring up at appointments. If I called for specific questions they were great about answering but when I went in for blood draws and brought up something they often just shrugged it off like it was normal. I have no way of knowing now if that is why our first round of IVF was unsuccessful or not.
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Strengths are friendliness and compassion where appropriate. High success rates from my understanding. And pretty well organized as far as I could tell. Weaknesses would just be I think responding and asking appropriate questions from the patient to address concerns even if they seem to just be mentioning something - if it seems to have anything to do with reactions to the medications or process they should show interest to potentially provide suggestions or something.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
I don't recall the costs exactly but I think it a few thousand dollars. IVF round 1 was around $21000 and round 3 with donor eggs was $32000. this was between all procedures, monitoring and medications.
What specific things went wrong at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.

When that round of IVF was unsuccessful and we went in to talk with Dr. about it and met with another nurse she mentioned that there were other options which no one informed us of until after the cycle was over.

Dr. Corfman was direct and incredibly knowledgeable when meeting us with and explaining how he would treat us. Both my partner and I really appreciated his straight forward approach that laid out ALL the options with details about success rates, financial cost, and time invested and then allowed us to ask any and all questions and make the decisions about next steps for ourselves.
Dr. Corfman is the only doctor here[at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] , so you know exactly who you're making an appointment with and who will be treating you. Scheduling was easy and available. The nursing and support staff clearly remembered YOU and your situation (even so far as joking about how all the nurses remembered which tattoo corresponded with the better blood draw arm...) and made appointments comfortable.

Our overall protocol seemed pretty straight forward / by the book, but Dr. Corfman was the first doctor we saw who recognized my PCOS symptoms and treated that as part of our strategy. Each step was clearly laid out for us and all the information and materials were well organized and shared as needed so as not to overwhelm us.

Describe Randle Corfman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Similar to what I've already shared, Dr. Corfman did a great job laying out all the options with pros and cons and then let us decide what made sense for our situation. We did end up opting for a multiple embryo transfer knowing the multiple birth stats but weighing the # of children we want, my personal health, and the amount of support and help we have nearby. We did end up with a twin pregnancy and we're very happy about it.

I did 3 rounds of IUI and were considering going into IVF next. Dr. Corfman said he likes to see at least 15 follicles in order to move ahead with an embryo transfer...[the protocol] process is very cookie cutter and templated. It all felt very transactional. I felt as though we were not given all of the information we needed...
There was so much information given to us, but I felt so overwhelmed and wished that someone from the [Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] clinic could have spent more time walking us through all the steps. I was given a piece of paper with a list of medications to take...Around $2000 per IUI cycle. We did three...They were caring and compassionate and did their best to make us feel comfortable and supported.
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
When we initially met with Dr. Corfman he was very optimistic that we would have good chances to conceive. We went ahead with IUI first simply because it was more affordable. 4 months later, we met with Dr. Corman after our third failed IUI attempt, and he completely changed his tune and was very pessimistic about our chances of conceiving with IVF. When I asked him why his thoughts had changed so much in the past 4 months, he said it’s because I have only been producing 2-4 follicles and we would need a lot more (15) for IVF. I've since learned that the treatment for IVF is VERY different and cannot even compare to the IUI treatment. The fact that he even said this makes me question his mental state. I was also a bit confused and upset with Dr. Corman’s response to me when I asked him about what made him change his mind. I was simply looking for clarification and trying to understand as much as possible. He very quickly said “you’re hurting my feelings now; you should go get a second opinion.” He was so dismissive and made it clear he was not interested in helping us anymore. I was honestly shocked
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Look elsewhere. Since my experience with Dr. Corfman I have found MANY other women who had bad experiences with him.

Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
My FSH and AMH levels were tested. No other tests were completed, such as possible tubal blockage. My husband had a semen analysis done. We did three cycles of IUI. An ultrasound was done at the beginning of the cycle and the 10th day of the cycle to check the progress of the follicles. I was prescribed Letrozole 5mg daily to stimulate the ovaries. Around day 10 of taking the Letrazole I would take Ovidrel, the trigger shot. I was then to take Estradiol 2mg 3x daily and Endometrin 100mg 3x daily. All three IUI's failed. There was never an attempt by Dr. Corfman to change up the protocol or try a different method.

Most of the nursing staff were great. I really enjoyed Holley, Nikki, and Sarah. They were caring and compassionate and did their best to make us feel comfortable and supported.
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
This clinic lacks communication. As a new patient during the COVID-19 pandemic most of the appointments with Dr. Corfman were over telehealth or phone call. There was so much information given to us, but I felt so overwhelmed and wished that someone from the clinic could have spent more time walking us through all the steps. I was given a piece of paper with a list of medications to take. Two of these medications allowed me to choose from three different options. I asked multiple time's what the difference between the three are, and why am I given the option to choose between these three. I was never given an answer. The front desk staff were always very kind and friendly.

[Dr. Randle Corfman] He takes time and explained everything to me. He answered my questions and even suggested a new OBGYN when I said I was looking for one...On my first appointment we looked at the whole picture and all the potential forks in the road. From there, we did a whole list of tests to understand where I was hormone-wise, PCOS-wise and determined where I go from there.
the wait times [at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] are really short and the appointment times have been really convenient. I always feel like I can ask questions and get answers that make sense to me at my knowledge level...My insurance doesn’t cover the treatment, so I paid out of pocket: Baseline Ultrasound - $350 Mid-cycle Ultrasound- $275 Insemination- $440
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dr. Corfman and his entire staff are incredibly kind. They take a scary, exciting, and emotional process and treat you like you’re the most special patient and that their whole job is to only help you. I feel so comfortable there.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
If you have questions- ask. Everyone there is happy to help, no matter if you’ve asked before or need something explained again.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
He takes time and explained everything to me. He answered my questions and even suggested a new OBGYN when I said I was looking for one. He had to do this 20 times a week and he still treated me like he had time to listen and answer patiently.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
On my first appointment we looked at the whole picture and all the potential forks in the road. From there, we did a whole list of tests to understand where I was hormone-wise, PCOS-wise and determined where I go from there. Based on those results (low on some hormones, no PCOS)- we went with medicated cycles with a trigger shot before insemination. For my second round, we continued the same but changed the trigger and insemination dates. I’m in the two-week wait now and will re-evaluate if I don’t get a positive test on this one.

So kind!! Since I mostly meet with them, their patience and compassion is key.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Every interaction we have had with the nursing staff has been extremely helpful. Not only do they return any calls within minutes, they also provide clear answers and explanation to all questions we have had. They have worked closely with our local health care providers to assist with all services as well. These ladies are so friendly and always willing to help!
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
This clinic has everything one might need. They have amazing staff of every level and all staff present to be compassionate and willing to help however they can! While the clinic isn’t in it’s own building, it’s location provides you privacy and it’s almost helpful for nerves to walk into a building where the minute you walk in, everyone doesn’t know exactly why you are there.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Initial cost is around 10,000 which covers the majority of the services. There are some additional clinic costs, freezing embryo costs, testing, etc. Estimated final cost depending on what services are needed around 18,000-25,000

Dr. Corfman allowed us to choose between single or multiple and we choice to implant two embryos...He actually read and studied my lab work. He may seem a bit "old school" but he is so knowledgeable. He was great during our egg retrieval and transfer as he was very compassionate...We originally wanted to complete PGT testing but he recommended a fresh transfer. We transferred two embryos and were successful.
The monitoring appointments [at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] were conducted at a satellite clinic in my area...The nursing staff was fabulous event though it was a voicemail operated form of communication...When we had challenges with medication from a pharmacy they advocated for us...We mostly doctored at the satellite clinic in my area which has a great technician that completed the ultrasounds and blood work
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dr. Corfman is very intelligent. I had a history of going to a clinic in my area and they would neve explore any underlining medical conditions that could be associated with my infertility. Then we met with Dr. Corman who diagnosed me with PCOS after years of being undiagnosed. He actually read and studied my lab work. He may seem a bit "old school" but he is so knowledgeable. He was great during our egg retrieval and transfer as he was very compassionate.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Ask questions about previous lab work or assessments and get his perspective. He will take time to review and give you an honest answer. I liked that he was honest from the get go.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
From the first time working with Dr. Corfman he had a wonderful bedside manner and was willing to answer any questions that he had. We never felt rushed when talking with him or asking him questions. When we would call the nurse line the nurses would know our chart and had a friendly demeanor.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
After several failed IUI's at another clinic we transferred services to Dr. Corfman. I was diagnosed with PCOS and started on metformin right away. We wanted to move on to IVF but recommended that we complete 1 IUI cycle. The IUI cycle failed and we moved on to egg retrieval and transfer. We completed an egg retrieval in Maple Grove but had monitoring done at a satellite clinic in my area. We originally wanted to complete PGT testing but he recommended a fresh transfer. We transferred two embryos and were successful.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
The nursing staff was fabulous event though it was a voicemail operated form of communication. They were very prompt in getting back and they treated me like a human. When we had challenges with medication from a pharmacy they advocated for us! This is so unheard of with any medical facility.
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
We mostly doctored at the satellite clinic in my area which has a great technician that completed the ultrasounds and blood work. We only went to the clinic in Maple Grove twice. The clinic was clean, organized, and inviting. The transfer process was relaxing and used a lot of mindfulness approaches which I appreciated.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
The monitoring appointments were conducted at a satellite clinic in my area. The clinic was very small and knew us by name. The ultrasound technician was great to work with along with the nursing staff.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Our cost with IVF and fresh transfer was around 15,000 plus more for medication.

Dr Corfman is very straightforward and to the point. We felt confident going into our procedures because of his optimistic and friendly approach. Things changed after our failed IVF when we started asking questions about why it didn’t work or what we could change in our next cycle. He was quick to point the finger and eventually told us to get a second opinion and he would not help us unless we used both donor eggs and donor sperm moving forward...
They [nursing staff of Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] were very organized and prompt. Any time I had questions I would get a call back within 30 minutes...One way I think they could improve is by having a way to ask questions or contact online. They have a nurse phone line to leave voicemails and they will return your call, however, that is not always convenient for someone who works during the day...Around $15000 for IVF including ICSI and monitoring.

Dr Corfman is very straightforward and to the point. We felt confident going into our procedures because of his optimistic and friendly approach. Things changed after our failed IVF when we started asking questions about why it didn’t work or what we could change in our next cycle. He was quick to point the finger and eventually told us to get a second opinion and he would not help us unless we used both donor eggs and donor sperm moving forward. At our second opinion appointment, our new doctor offered us additional testing to help us get answers as to why the first cycle didn’t work and also pointed out some flaws in our protocol and how I was poorly responding to the meds early on. Since then I have also found that I was misdiagnosed with PCOS by Dr Corfman and in fact have Endometriosis. I know some patients who have had success with him who fall in the young and healthy category (which he kept repeating to us again and again), but in more complicated cases would recommend seeing another doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Get a second opinion to compare doctors before taking the leap into IVF... be sure to ask questions to make an informed decision
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
We began with IUI’s and things seemed great, call with the first day of the cycle and treatment will progress from there. If follicles are not progressing as they should they will adjust meds and customize treatment. With IVF it was a little different, they group patients together and only do certain treatments during certain times of the year (no retrievals during the summer months) and have a more “one size fits all” protocol.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
My protocol involved gonal f in the morning and menopur in the evening. I was on meds a total of 7 days prior to a lupron/hcg trigger. This produced 15 eggs, 9 mature (which we later found out only 4 were mature at the time of trigger) and 3 fertilized. One fresh day 3 transfer and zero made it to day 5. He recommends day 3 transfers for cases that don’t produce many embryos since the body is a better incubator than the labs.

They were very organized and prompt. Any time I had questions I would get a call back within 30 minutes.
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
This clinic is very timely and efficient. Everyone was friendly from our experience. One way I think they could improve is by having a way to ask questions or contact online. They have a nurse phone line to leave voicemails and they will return your call, however, that is not always convenient for someone who works during the day.

We used Letrozole because Dr. Corfman believes Letrozole is more effective and a better overall drug than Clomid...I was having a rough day emotionally when I had my HSG test and Dr. Corfman was very kind and gentle. I very much appreciated that. I do wish I had more check-ins with him than I did also...We had to request consultations after failed fertility treatments to discuss next steps and it would have been nice to have him request check-ins more frequently.
[Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] strengths: Dr. Corfman has a solid bedside manner and is an effective doctor. The nursing team is helpful and compassionate. Weaknesses: Wish there was more direct communication between Dr. Corfman and me. Wish there was more discussion of how we might change our approach since I never conceived under his care.
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
I wish Dr. Corfman would accept ALL women who are interested in fertility treatments instead of discriminating against women who are overweight, but as an individual patient I felt I was treated well by Dr. Corfman. In particular, I was having a rough day emotionally when I had my HSG test and Dr. Corfman was very kind and gentle. I very much appreciated that. I do wish I had more check-ins with him than I did also.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
He is a kind human being and a great Doctor
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Mostly felt like a human but it would have been nice to have more interaction with Dr. Corfman. We had to request consultations after failed fertility treatments to discuss next steps and it would have been nice to have him request check-ins more frequently. Besides that, I was treated well by all the staff.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
We used Letrozole because Dr. Corfman believes Letrozole is more effective and a better overall drug than Clomid. I had five medicated cycles and one IUI under his care and was only monitored and administered treatments by the nursing staff. I also had a laparoscopy to remove an ovarian cyst (done by my OB) and I wish we had more of a discussion about the potential risks of this procedure. Dr. Corfman would not continue to treat me until I had this cyst removed, but I believe that the surgery harmed on of my ovaries because it stopped responding to treatment after the surgery. There was no discussion of this as a potential risk, and I still haven't conceived so I am not sure the surgery was the right choice for me. I do believe that Dr. Corfman is thoughtful in his treatment plans and that he is a great doctor; I just wish I would have had a choice in whether I had that surgery.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.

He [Dr. Randle Corfman] will only transfer a maximum of 2 embryos. He will transfer 1 embryo but does strongly encourage 2 everytime...was very compassionate and fairly thorough. My wife has endometriosis and he did allow us to do 3 runs of IUI treatments but he did pretty heavily push IVF and was almost a little "salesmenish" kinda felt like an upsell. After 3 negative tests in IUI we went for a round of IVF which also failed. 2 issues we had was that we were not informed about the ICSI procedure and none of our 14 retrieved eggs were done with this process and only resulted in 2 viable embryos.

Everything up until we learned about those 2 scenarios felt very comfortable but after learning about those 2 things we felt a bit burned.

Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
He does layout the entire process and gives a very accurate calendar of when you will be doing each step. He will only transfer a maximum of 2 embryos and does often recommend to transfer 2 if possible. He does give reasons as to why he does each step the way he does and from our research they appeared to be very common and best routes.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
They were extremely compassionate and comforting. Only complaint was that they did not inform us of "knots" at the injection sites amd how to deal with them. Which was pretty upsetting considering we discovered that this is a fairly common problem with the injections.
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
They are knowledgeable and compassionate and for the most part very thorough aside from our 2 complaints. The communication about the 2 issues could've been avoided had we been more prepared and maybe couldve resulted in a positive test. That issue I believe falls on both them and us. If we had researched better and known to ask about those 2 scenarios I have no doubt our questions wouldve been answered.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
They give you a very detailed calendar and time frame to expect certain procedures and monitoring. They let you know if we see X at this appointment then we will do this in response and what to expect at certain times. Very well done/planned.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
IUI was roughly $1,800 per treatment to which they recommended a max of 12 treatments. IVF was $21,000 and with fresh donor eggs add $10,000.

Honestly I have never felt more comfortable with a doctor. From the very beginning he [Dr. Randle Corfman] was very open and honest...I live in a separate state so a lot of our communication was through his satellite nurses or phone calls with his nurse...He always remembered me and my husband, remembered little details like what we did for work and where we live. He also took his time during our visits and didn’t rush me through.
Everyone was so compassionate and reassuring [at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health]...it was suggested that I do injections with IVF. I had my egg retrieval and 3 days later placed 2 embryos, 1 took and I have a 3 year old daughter...IVF (retrieval + transfer) was approx $12,000 Meds $5000 Ultrasounds were $250 each time (It’s important to note that I had NO infertility coverage through my insurance)

Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
It started off with trying multiple pills (clomid, letrozole) those unfortunately did not work. We eventually moved on to injectables (menupor) which I had great success with ! I used injections and did an IUI, I got a positive test however it was ectopic. I then did another cycle of injections and had to cancel my IUI because I had produced too many follicles(eggs). Finally it was suggested that I do injections with IVF. I had my egg retrieval and 3 days later placed 2 embryos, 1 took and I have a 3 year old daughter. This past October we used our last 2 embryos but unfortunately they did not take. I’m currently checking into doing the whole process again.
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Very clean, private, and friendly I did not spend much time in the clinic in Minnesota as I was at a satellite clinic. But it’s very nice, welcoming and they are all very caring. Everything flows and never a long wait time
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
IVF (retrieval + transfer) was approx $12,000 Meds $5000 Ultrasounds were $250 each time (It’s important to note that I had NO infertility coverage through my insurance)

Provided you are healthy and have a strong support system, Dr. Corfman is an advocate for transferring 2 embryos. His comment to us was, “you’d rather go home with two than with none” and we agreed...As an out of state patient, my first time meeting Dr. Corfman was the day of my retrieval. He came in and talked with my husband and I as regular people; suggested places to visit or eat before even discussing the procedure ahead. He was so down to earth and genuine.
My husband and I were blown away at how seamless our 2 visits (retrieval day & transfer day) to the clinic [Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] were. Every single person we encountered (nurses, embryologist, Dr. C, front desk staff) was so kind...My IVF coordinator was Tiffany. She was fabulous to work with. She’s very honest and straightforward and I very much appreciated that. Once the logistics of my cycle were sorted out, I talked to/heard from many other nurses. They were all very kind and patient with me. They all were very knowledgeable regarding me as a patient.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Just trust him. I wish I would have let my guard down sooner and trusted that he had my best interest in mind. I would have saved myself a lot of stress.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Everyone from the front desk staff to Dr. Corfman himself were so genuine.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health. (Assigned nurse: Tiffany)
My IVF coordinator was Tiffany. She was fabulous to work with. She’s very honest and straightforward and I very much appreciated that. Once the logistics of my cycle were sorted out, I talked to/heard from many other nurses. They were all very kind and patient with me. They all were very knowledgeable regarding me as a patient.
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
My husband and I were blown away at how seamless our 2 visits (retrieval day & transfer day) to the clinic were. Every single person we encountered (nurses, embryologist, Dr. C, front desk staff) was so kind.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
My monitoring appointments were done with my local Family Nurse Practitioner. Her office would then send result to the Mid-West Center.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Approximately $12,000 prepayment for retrieval and transfer Approximately $4,000-$6,000 for medications Approximately $1,000-$3,000 for unforeseen costs (ie. thawing of back up semen, etc)
Describe Randle Corfman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Provided you are healthy and have a strong support system, Dr. Corfman is an advocate for transferring 2 embryos. His comment to us was, “you’d rather go home with two than with none” and we agreed.

When I first saw Dr Corfman, I was 221 pounds and he would not initiate any treatment whatsoever for the recommended IUI protocol until I was 200 pounds or less. He also would not do the IUI until i had an HSG done to rule out tubal blockage, which I feel I could have had done right away, but again I had to wait...He was never very available and I was directed to speak more with his nursing staff than with him specifically unless I wanted to pay anywhere from 80-150 for a phone consultation with him. He did not treat us with much kindness
[The nurses at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] Usually called back to return messages in a timely manner, but would get frustrated if asked too many questions about care plan and would get huffy and ask if I wanted to speak to Dr Corfman again instead - which would then result in being charged more money...had times where the wrong information was provided to me regarding where I could have tests performed - specifically the HSG - and I spent three days chasing people down via phone trying to get them scheduled. It was also a long time waiting to get results back to be informed of next steps.
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
The only strength I fee Dr Corfman had was his ability to explain the process and the percentage outcomes and what the potential risks were. He was unwilling to bend any of his treatment plans and refused to begin any treatment until I was a certain weight, which ended up costing me more than a year of time and effort in trying to have a child. He also refused to consider IVF via my own eggs due to my AMH level which was .99 at age 38. He said it would only be an option to do IVF if we used donor eggs or donor embryo. We did look into donor embryo, which he sold as a much more affordable and successful option, but told us that we'd have to get on the list - when we entered the list we were number 16, and after almost a year, we are still only number 15 on the list - his inability to communicate the real chance of receiving a donor embryo was very poor. He made us feel as though it was a viable option - we don't have as much as four years to wait for that option. I am overall very disappointed in the care I received and feel robbed of over a year of effort and time in the fertility process. This is precisely why we switched doctors after a failed IUI as something told me we were on the wrong path.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
If you aren't young and skinny - find another clinician to conceive your fertility plans.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dr Corfman was unwilling to discuss anything outside the norms of his protocols. He was never very available and I was directed to speak more with his nursing staff than with him specifically unless I wanted to pay anywhere from 80-150 for a phone consultation with him. He did not treat us with much kindness and I was later told by a second clinician that he prefers his patients young and skinny. This fully explains why he would not work with me using my own eggs inspite of my AMH level being just a tad below the normal range for my age (.99 at age 38) and wouldn't initiate any treatment whatsoever (IUI) until I lost an extreme amount of weight. He would not consider IVF an option for treatment unless we agreed to donor eggs and I lost even more weight (an additional 20 pounds more), all of which cost us time and effort in the fertility process and I later went on to seek a second opinion after our failed IUI cycle and the feeling we were on the wrong path with Dr. Corfman.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
Because my AMH was considered lower than normal for my age at .99 at age 38, Dr Corfman refused to consider IVF with my own eggs and would only consent to IVF with donor eggs or embryo. We were further advised we could not do IVF until I was 187 pounds. When I first saw Dr Corfman, I was 221 pounds and he would not initiate any treatment whatsoever for the recommended IUI protocol until I was 200 pounds or less. He also would not do the IUI until i had an HSG done to rule out tubal blockage, which I feel I could have had done right away, but again I had to wait. Wasting more of my time. The HSG was performed at a local clinic and he did not do it - but he also did not fully explore whether my left tube is truly blocked and only said that I had no other signs that it would truly be blocked (the dye did not fully expel through my left tube, only my right) When I did finally reach 199 pounds, we were told we had to wait another 2 months because he wanted me to take two cycles of birth control and take high doses of metformin prior to a cycle. We went through one IUI cycle, which failed, and then he wanted a sonohystogram done, so we could not do a second IUI the following month, costing me even more time. over a year passed from the first time I consulted with him to the first time we tried for IUI and I feel as though we lost so much valuable time. I should have gotten a second opinion much sooner. The IUI cycle we did included letrozole and a trigger shot. After the frustration and lack of communication, we sought a second opinion from a different clinic. I am not happy at all with the care plan outlined by Dr. Corfman in retrospect, especially due to the extended time I was forced to wait to begin treatment and my age. And the fact that he flat out refused to consider IVF with my own eggs.

Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
If a patient is not young, of what Dr. Corfman consider's an ideal weight, and does not have normal values for hormone levels, I would advise seeking treatment elsewhere. He is very picky and very specific, which I'm sure is done to help his success rate.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
the actual bill for the IUI procedure itself was $440. This did not include medications or the Ultrasounds and bloodwork.

Dr. Corfman is a kind, gentle physician. During my HSG he took extra measures to make sure I was comfortable and free from as much pain as possible. We didn’t see him often during our visits, but he was always there with questions regarding our treatment.... I was diagnosed with PCOS and anovulation upon meeting with Dr. Corfman.

My cost was definitely more than we expected for timed cycles with ultrasounds, medications, etc. however, the clinic was upfront about their costs and we knew this before treatment began.

One thing I do wish is that there would be a more holistic approach to the treatments [with Dr. Randle Corfman]. I have done a lot of research on my own with using supplements and making lifestyle changes. It’s not that Dr. Corfman is against those approaches, they just aren’t encompassed in the treatment plan and don’t seem to hold much importance there...does a wonderful job at explaining everything and was amazing with the actual procedures which are generally very uncomfortable.
Nursing staff [at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] was wonderful. Timely responses always. Very patient with me when I would call with all kinds of questions. Very knowledgeable nurses...recommends transferring 1-2 embryos depending on a number of variables...I really wish the clinic would have an email or messaging system. It is inconvenient to use only telephone communication especially with my full time job. I am rarely able to get to my cell phone at work and I feel messaging would work much better. They do set a personal voicemail system up for nurses to call with progress updates and medication instructions which is nice.
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dr. Corfman does a wonderful job at explaining everything and was amazing with the actual procedures which are generally very uncomfortable. There was absolutely no pain or discomfort during my embryo transfer and the egg retrieval was a bit uncomfortable, as to be expected, but tolerable by all means (This clinic uses conscious sedation so I was awake and do remember my retrieval). Although we did not get the outcome we were praying for, Dr. Corfman was very honest and upfront with the not so great odds we were up against and gave ya all our options.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
As with any infertility doctor, go in to it open minded. You have to trust the process. I had to go through a failed cycle to find out my egg quality is the problem.. now we are on to deciding what’s next.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dr. Corfman has a great bedside manner. He is excellent at explaining the ins and outs of IVF.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
I used the regular protocol there. I started by taking birth control for a month or so and then on to stim meds. It included ovarian stimulation meds such as Gonal F and trigger shot Pregnyl. I used ganrilex acetate to prevent ovulation before the retrieval. I did have Lupron at home on standby in case my estrogen levels spiked too high but I never had to use the Lupeon protocol. I used progesterone suppositories twice a day following the transfer, I believe those start before transfer if the lupron protocol is given. That’s all I can remember off hand without my list in front of me.

Dr. Corfman tells us what he would suggest to his own family members if they were in our shoes. He always makes sure we understand what he’s saying and listens to our concerns.... Our 5 treatment cycles were IUI. All were unsuccessful. We met with Dr. Corfman to discuss what to do next and he suggested donor eggs. Initially, we did not want to even consider using donor eggs as we were already using donor sperm. We asked if he would sign off on paperwork for us to try ICI at home and he did. After 5 more failed tries, we found ourselves back in his office. Time was not on our side. I was getting older (as are my eggs) and my wife did not have promising numbers. He was very sympathetic to our situation but made sure we were aware of all of our options. We could try IVF with my eggs and possibly experience expensive heartache or we could consider IVF with donor eggs and have our family.
They’re [the nurses at Midwest Center for Repro Health] great communicators. They would always get back to me when they said they would if I had concerns. They perform most of the procedures and always made me feel comfortable during them.... I feel like this clinic may have a bad reputation because Dr. Corfman does not have a soft bedside manner. I appreciate his knowledge, honesty, and professionalism while being under his care. He is a great doctor and has surrounded himself with a very caring staff.
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
I was hesitant to use Dr. Corfman at first because a lot of our care was performed by nurses as he is often out of the office at satellite locations. However, his nurses were amazing. One of my treatments was scheduled on a weekend during a huge snowstorm. Dr. Corfman performed the procedure himself so his staff would not have to come to the office in hazardous conditions.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
If you’re looking for someone to look out for your best interests, he will be honest with you and not beat around the bush. He truly wants his patients to be successful.

We haven’t transferred eggs yet, but when we were doing IUI, Dr. Corfman discussed the possibility of multiples and asked us to think about selective reduction in the event of four or more embryos. Because of my age, 38, all of our IVF conversations have been about implanting at least two embryos.

my body took well to one of the hormones - so I was able to adjust my course as necessary as my eggs were growing well/big at the time. I ended up not using about half of the medication was prescribed [by Dr. Corfman]...He made sure it was our choice but told us the possibility of them splitting, etc. We chose to place two. and both took. He made sure to tell me that he thought I was healthy enough to place two and that if twins or triplets were an option, that my body should/would be healthy enough to handle that choice and if he didn't think so, that he would have encouraged us to only place one embryo.
They [nurses at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] were all extremely empathetic, compassionate, and humbled...I had all my monitoring appointments at a separate satellite location...It cost us well over 20,000 out of pocket for our procedure. We opted for the VIP program which was more than the standard 17,800 plus then you had to pay for your medications separately resulting in about 8,000 - 9,000 in medications alone on top of the rest.
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
After the transfer, the dr corfman stayed. He had already done his job... but he didn't immediately leave. For about five minutes he held mine and Andrews hand. He told us he had a good feeling. That he hoped he wouldn't have to see us again. And then, before he left us to be together as parents, he said "they are yours now." That stuck with me in ways you cannot imagine. He was down to earth. Funny when he needed to be lighthearted. Serious when he needed to be. And walked us through everything.

The ONLY thing I disliked is the waiting room. When you are going through infertility, you are constantly in waiting rooms with others - who may or may not be going through the same thing as you. Some who are already pregnant. Some who are trying. Some who have lost. I wish that in this case, when your emotions are already so high and that you have already been on this journey so long - that the waiting room would have separate rooms for each family. So that you can wait, grieve, be in excitement, etc together without others around.

He thoroughly looked over my chart and finally diagnosed me with PCOS after 2 years of treatment with my OBGYN and a miscarriage. He knew everything about me and my history and came in with a thorough plan and the information to back it up.... He makes me feel like I have a chance in this journey because he doesn’t sugarcoat anything. He is honest and candid and I want that and appreciate it.
Strength is always answering and calling me back immediately. The front desk staff [Midwest Ctr for Repro Health] are friendly and warm. They open really early in the morning so you don’t have to take time away from your work day. Weakness is sometimes it takes months to get an initial appointment.... I appreciate they have a “live birth guarantee” with IVF. This means if you don’t have a life birth you can get a large amount of money back.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
He thoroughly looked over my chart and finally diagnosed me with PCOS after 2 years of treatment with my OBGYN and a miscarriage. He knew everything about me and my history and came in with a thorough plan and the information to back it up. He made personal connections to me by really getting to know who I was as a person. I left feeling finally heard and understood after two very long, lonely and painful years of infertility.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
He used medications that I needed based on blood work and history and not just guessing what might possibly help. I appreciated that cause I want to know these things too.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Even when I would come in for a blood sample they knew everything about my cycle and my chart. They always called me back ASAP when I left a message.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Basic costs of medication and cycles were in line with what other clinics charged per cycle. I appreciate they have a “live birth guarantee” with IVF. This means if you don’t have a life birth you can get a large amount of money back. That helps ease a lot of fears and worries with IVF.

Dr. Corfman did a great job making us feel like we were his only patient. He took the time to answer all of our questions and explain things so we understood them. He was careful to give hope without overpromising...is a fast-talker and very smart, but if I ever got lost he would take the time to explain everything clearly. He walked through each step, explaining why each step was important and what changes we would make if necessary. When we faced a miscarriage he was so compassionate and kind and let us take the time we needed.
[Midwest Center for Reproductive Health has] Easy access, with lots of availability for appointments. I liked that the clinic had everything in one building so there wasn’t any running around town. Convenient hours made all of the appointments easy to fit around my work schedule...[The nurses were] Very friendly, supportive and encouraging. They were very empathetic when a cycle ended up negative...Each IUI was approximately $1000

Be prepared with what you want to know. Ask lots of questions and trust his judgment. He has purpose behind every decision. It may make it feel like it it is taking forever but the process works!

Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
We started with two months of birth control to reset hormones. He also encourages an HSG for diagnostic purposes initially but for treatment after our first baby. On day 1-3 there is an ultrasound to ensure the health of the lining and uterus. Days 3-10 or so I took letrazole to stimulate the follicles. Around day 10 I had an ultrasound to check the maturity of the follicles. Dr Corfman would decide if more time was needed or if we were ready for the IUI. Two days before the IUI I would do a trigger shot and intercourse was recommended. Two days later my husband went in to give his sample and then I went in a few hours later for the IUI. Two weeks later we did a blood test and if positive two days later another blood test was done. If still positive, we scheduled an ultrasound for two weeks later.

Dr. Corfman is very intelligent and to the point. He explains things in detail when asked which was very helpful. I feel that he was invested in our treatments and with each failed attempt he grieved with us. He was honest in saying he didn’t know why we weren’t successful and referred us to colleagues for a second opinion. In the end we stayed with him and his clinic because we trusted them and didn’t believe we would have different outcomes somewhere else.
The clinic [Midwest Ctr for Reproductive Health] runs like a well oiled machine. They keep you updated on new appointments and what is the next step in the process.... The nurses are easy to get a hold of and return calls quickly. Everyone was friendly and approachable. We had one lab charged which was not performed and I kept receiving bills for it.... They also only do retrievals and tranfers a few times a year so you may have to wait to start treatment depending on the date.

I spent 3 years trying to become pregnant with treatments from Dr. Corfman. We had 3 failed attempts and Dr. Corfman and staff were very supportive. When we finally had a positive result, Dr. Corfman shared tears of joy with us.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
I used follistem and menoper for stimulation along with ganerelex. I did not have a successful fresh transfer. With our frozen transfer - we used lupron along with progesterone injections and suppositories and estrogen injections.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
The staff were all very compassionate. The skill level varied from nurse to nurse but overall they were all very knowledgeable in what they were doing.

Everyone was friendly and approachable. We had one lab charged which was not performed and I kept receiving bills for it. It took a few calls before it was resolved completely.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Each fresh cycle had a base rate of around 10,000 which did not include meds or monitoring. Each frozen had a base of around 6,000.

We were very unhappy with our time with Dr Corfman. We felt like we were just another person coming through. He never asked we come back to meet in person - we insisted to come back and sit down in person to go over why he felt things weren't working. When we got there he told me it was probably my weight why we weren't getting pregnant because I was "too thin." He never mentioned my weight when treatments started - just 6 months in when things weren't working.
The nurse who did our injectable teaching [at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] did a good job and we were pleased with her...I had requested information be sent to another clinic and they claimed to have done it but didn't - I had to have it mailed out to me...We personally were not pleased and would not be my first recommendation to someone. The location is convenient and easy to access, the wait times didn't ever seem lengthy. This was my first time going to a fertility clinic and wish we would have interviewed around but we were referred to him per our OBGYN who has had good luck and refers all of his patients here.
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
When I first met him ( he was our 1st fertility specialist) he seemed very knowledgeable and gave us hope that his course of action would work with no concerns. We felt very positive when we left that we'd only need one month of medications and we'd get pregnant. He seemed very thorough in our first meeting. However, after we left that appointment I believe I didn't speak to him again until we requested to come back.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?

When we got there he told me it was probably my weight why we weren't getting pregnant because I was "too thin." He never mentioned my weight when treatments started - just 6 months in when things weren't working. ( I weighed less prior to my first child than at this point, and this has always been my weight, I'm naturally thin but health) He then said our only other option was IVF. We said we'd like to discuss that further. He said - well if you do IVF I only do it in the Fall and not in the summer because of the summer solstice - he claimed IVF doesn't work very well during the summer solstice. He went and got someone to go over the IVF packet with us. When the person came back she said - sorry the IVF coordinator is out, I'm just from the business office. She handed us a file full of information & said we'd need to come back to meet with the coordinator for further details/explanations. It felt VERY "cold" and hurtful.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
We were prescribed to do injectables, 2 sets of ultrasounds/month with timed intercourse.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
I remember a couple of nurses that were very pleasant and professional, but there was one nurse who did a blood draw that did a terrible job as that wasn't her full time job but just needed to get it done. The nurse who did our injectable teaching did a good job and we were pleased with her.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
I believe the medications were expensive (which we expected) and insurance doesn't cover most fertility treatments so we expected that. I'm not sure what the costs were.

Dr. Corfman was able to tell from my ultrasounds alone that I had PCOS. He drew many diagrams to help explain the process for what they would do in my situation. When I told him we were in a time crunch and wanted to proceed with IVF instead of trying some other things first, as we were getting ready to move in a few months and the insurance I had at the time covered part of IVF, he said they would get me in before we moved, and they did. My husband even liked Dr. Corfman, and he doesn't like any doctors.
Everyone was kind and professional [at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health]... we did all our monitoring at a satellite clinic, but when we went to see Dr. Corfman for the egg retrieval and then the transfer, we were called back quickly, there were no other people in the waiting room, or in the clinic from what I could see, so it didn't feel like I was in an assembly line and we had some amount of privacy in the waiting room.
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dr. Corfman was very to the point but was never unkind or rude. He was very knowledgeable about our case in particular from the first visit and is actually the one who diagnosed me with PCOS. I had 6 IUIs with my OB doctor and he never diagnosed me with PCOS, when I asked he would say I don't fit the profile. Dr. Corfman was able to tell from my ultrasounds alone that I had PCOS. He drew many diagrams to help explain the process for what they would do in my situation.

My husband even liked Dr. Corfman, and he doesn't like any doctors.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
I read some of the other reviews who said that he was somewhat blunt, but keep in mind the reason you are seeing him is that you want a baby. Dr. Corfman is very good at what he does. His success rates are well over the national average.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dr. Corfman's office definitely had a set protocol that they followed, but they always reviewed my lab results and my ultrasounds and tailored my protocol to me.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Always returned my calls the same day (or the next day if I called late in the afternoon). We did all my monitoring via a satellite clinic, so the nurse had to give me all my instructions over the phone, and she was very detailed and precise and answered all my questions. It was a lot of information and she explained it very well.
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Like I said previously, we did all our monitoring at a satellite clinic, but when we went to see Dr. Corfman for the egg retrieval and then the transfer, we were called back quickly, there were no other people in the waiting room, or in the clinic from what I could see, so it didn't feel like I was in an assembly line and we had some amount of privacy in the waiting room. Everyone was kind and professional.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
We had a down payment of around $11,000. Meds did not cost us anything since my insurance at the time paid for all of the meds. My insurance covered some of the IVF, so we got some money refunded to us and ended up paying about $9,000 out of pocket. Probably would have been close to $20,000 if we didn't have insurance.
