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! Dr. Kashani’s insight and attentiveness didn’t stop there. She continued to monitor my pregnancy and answer my frantic emails (even when I emailed on holiday weekends). She always pro

How was your experience with Banafsheh Kashani at Eden Centers for Advanced Fertility (closed)?
From the first office visit, I felt at ease speaking candidly and openly to Dr. Kashani. She was always extremely attentive and empathetic.

She always provided me with all possible outcomes and made sure I was aware of any and all risks while still remaining optimistic. 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.

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!

Describe the protocols Banafsheh Kashani used in your cycles at Banafsheh N. Kashani, MD, FACOG and their degree of success.
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.

The staff wat Dr. Kashani's office were extremely compassionate. They all got to know me personally and went out of their way to check up on me. My nurse, Natalie, was very sweet as well as extremely experienced in what she does. She always made me feel comfortable and cared for in every situation. I absolutely love the nursing staff!
