She [Dr. Kashani] is kind, informative, compassionate, and takes her time. She doesn’t tread lightly and wants to make sure all bases are covered to get the best result possible. Even though the results of previous tests determined that my uterus was normal, she is concerned that I have a septum uterus and going through extra steps to have me get an MRI of my pelvis to see how severe the septum is before implanting...is thorough and answers all of my questions. She makes time for me and makes me feel valued. She is never rushed to see the next patient.

Dr Kashani has monitored me for a year now; I have undergone health issues that have delayed my fertility treatments and she has kept in touch every step of the way. She goes above and beyond to make me feel like I’m her only patient...She is caring, thorough, and truly invested in her patients. I am forever grateful to her for this experience regardless of the outcome of our treatment.
[Banafsheh is a] Smaller clinic with many in house supportive care features not found at other offices- acupuncture, nutritionists, counseling, spiritual counseling. You feel like you are getting high quality care at every step of the process!..Fantastic staff at every point- primary nurse, care coordinator, financial coordinator, post op RN, embryologist, anesthesiologist, etc. everyone at this clinic is superb!

The clinic [Reproductive Health and Wellness Center] was very organized in providing information and general processes of navigating payments and insurance requests.

How was your experience with Banafsheh Kashani at Reproductive Health and Wellness Center?
Dr. Kashani was an absolute breath of fresh air in the whirlwind of the infertility world. From day one, she was incredibly thorough in gaining an understanding of my partner and my medical histories and appropriately moved forward with additional testing and diagnoses. She displayed the perfect combination of medical professionalism and gentle bedside manner. Dr. Kashani was upfront about potential risks/outcomes with my particular situation and delivered the most current and up-to-date research based on her approaches to my particular medical needs. Dr. Kashani referred me out for surgery and connected me a wonderful outside provider. She was prompt in responding to questions and concerns and always made me feel as though I could contact her for anything throughout the 2 IVF cycles and embryo transfer processes. Dr. Kashani's perfect combination of professionalism and humanity made one of the most difficult journeys of my life one that was bearable and enjoyable.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Banafsheh Kashani at Reproductive Health and Wellness Center?
Thoroughly research the database of ART success rates for each clinic and ask as many questions as possible about the embryologists/lab success rates.

Describe the protocols Banafsheh Kashani used in your cycles at Reproductive Health and Wellness Center and their degree of success.
I believe Dr. Kashani used two IVF agonist cycles. Medications were adjusted depending on labs. Menopur, Omnitrope, Follistim, Ganirelex were prescribed both times with a HCG trigger shot. I had diminished ovarian reserve and therefore, a higher dose of Menopur was utilized. Both IVF cycles resulted in 2 genetically normal embryos (4 total).

Dr. Kashani is very intelligent, up to date on current research and really cares about her patients. I had times where I was freaking out over a medication problem or pain I was having and I would email her on the weekend or evening. She often responded within 30 minutes to any urgent concern. 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. I also loved that I never had to wait long for the doctor to come in while I had that paper sheet over me. Some gynecologists leave you in there for 30 minutes. So uncomfortable. 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. 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.
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?
Come with an open mind, trust the process, if there are setbacks ask what your options are for adjusting treatment plans.

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.

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 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.

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.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Kashani was incredibly compassionate and empathetic throughout the entire process. She always made me feel more like a friend than just another patient...[she was there] supporting us, guiding us and helping us plan next steps for each challenge we faced along the way...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
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!!!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
If you’re on the fence about scheduling a consult with her, please do - you won’t regret it.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG?
Dr. Kashani was incredibly compassionate and empathetic throughout the entire process. She always made me feel more like a friend than just another patient.
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.

The clinic’s greatest strengths are the warm, welcoming and supportive atmosphere Dr. Kashani and her entire exude.

I honestly can’t think of any weaknesses.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Banafsheh Kashani at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG.
I don’t remember specific costs but felt the costs were in line with and in some cases less than other doctors we consulted with before beginning treatment with Dr. Kashani.

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!

From the very first visit Dr. Kashani was attentive, empathetic and informative. I felt listened to, validated and hopeful because of our conversation...I felt that she truly understood my plight and was in my corner ready with a multitude of approaches pending my husband and I’d schedule and desires. Furthermore, she was more than willing to go into extensive detail as we asked about the logistics of IUI vs IVF and which path to go forward with. We decided to go with IUI initially. My body hyper-reacted to the fertility drugs initially which led to a skipped cycle (too many eggs) but Dr. Kashani used the information gained to adjust the dosage. The following two cycles successfully produced eggs but the first one did not result in a pregnancy. The second one resulted in a twin pregnancy!

How was your experience with Banafsheh Kashani at Eden Centers for Advanced Fertility (closed)?

When the twin pregnancy was confirmed (we heard the heartbeat of sweet baby B), her joy mirrored and amplified mine. I look forward to sharing pictures of our babies when they join our family early next year (God willing).

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.
