The office staff [at University Fertility Center] does a great job of scheduling and sometimes the inevitable happens and delays occur...This is a busy clinic and the nursing/office staff do their very best to tend to patients. They dis a great job in communicating with me and going above and beyond. There were times when I needed prescriptions called in to my preferred pharmacy and they expedited the process to ensure i had the medication I needed.

Strengths [U Fertility Ctr] are you will see your doctor every time. Dr. Khorram is good at what he does. You will pay less than other clinics. Weakness is he is a poor communicator and little bedside manners. Since he sees all his patients each time the wait may be long.... [Clinic Errors] Only that there was poor communication as to the cost and that added extra stress the day of transfer.... Have questions written down.

Describe Omid Khorram's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at University Fertility Center.
The single embryo transfer was our choice. He pushed us to put in two, but we only wanted one as we had experienced twins and the stress on my body already. We should have listened, the one did not take. He told me it was because we only put in one.

The communication is not that great [at University Fertility Center] between the dr [Dr. Khorram] and the embryologist and nurses. One strength is that dr k does everything on his own...The cost of an ivf cycle was around 7,500 and a frozen transfer was 2,200...The [nursing] girls will ask you to call the doctor yourself instead of relaying questions or information...Did not get the results of my beta until after 10pm and it was done by email...
