Dr. Jonathan Kort's exceptional care from the initial consultation to egg retrieval...He called me the evening before my appointment just to check in with me about how I was feeling...explaining every single part of IVF to us—even going so far as to draw scientific diagrams on a whiteboard...For both egg retrievals, I was on around 450 units of Gonal F...I had 40 eggs total (from two egg retrievals), 37 of which were mature, 34 were fertilized, and 12 made it to the blastocyst stage.
The nursing staff at RMA is just incredible. From doing quick and painless blood draws to providing clear explanations and demonstrations of preparing and administering injections...My insurance covered nearly everything except for egg freezing, ICSI, and genetic testing. We paid about $10k out of pocket for each retrieval...you will always get to speak to an actual person—same day...They use an app called Spruce to communicate
How was your experience with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
I have nothing but the highest praise for Dr. Kort. From the minute my husband and I walked into his office, we knew we were in the most capable hands. Dr. Kort spent so much time, more than should be expected of a doctor, explaining every single part of IVF to us—even going so far as to draw scientific diagrams on a whiteboard, which my husband (a scientist) appreciated. He personally called me several times throughout IVF just to ask me how I was feeling. He was available to directly to every single day, either through phone call or text. It actually made me worry about his work/life balance—I've never met anyone so completely dedicated to his work. One of the things I appreciated most about him was that he listens to and believes women about their experiences; when I told him my fears about pain and trauma from all the parts of IVF (the needles, the egg retrieval, the HSG test, etc.) he listened with compassion and ensured I wouldn't ever be too uncomfortable—and I wasn't! I had a relatively pain-free IVF if you can believe it. He was there for us, really and truly there for us, every step of the way, from consultation to the creation of our embryos, and the eternal wait for the results from the genetic testing of our embryos. We ended up getting over 40 eggs, 3 of which turned into healthy high-grade embryos that are now frozen for implantation post-pandemic. We can't wait to continue our parenthood journey with Dr. Kort once it's safe again.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
Know you are in the best hands possible. Trust, relax, and rejoice about the path you're about to embark on. IVF doesn't have to be scary and stressful.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
I have nothing but the high enough praise for Dr. Kort's exceptional care from the initial consultation to egg retrieval. Of the many wonderful anecdotes I have to share, one stands out in my mind—I had heard that the HSG test was horrifically painful and so was terrified to have the procedure, which Dr. Kort knew. He called me the evening before my appointment just to check in with me about how I was feeling and assure me that if I was in pain at any point during the procedure, we would stop and find another way forward. That call helped me to trust him and dispel my anxiety. Despite my blocked tubes, the HSG ended up not being that painful because he was very gentle and quick during the procedure.
Describe the protocols Jonathan Kort used in your cycles at RMA of Northern California and their degree of success.
For both egg retrievals, I was on around 450 units of Gonal F, 20 units of low dose HCG and 1 vial of Centrotide for around 9 days before my trigger shot, which was Lupron both times. We used ICSI to inject sperm into the eggs. I had 40 eggs total (from two egg retrievals), 37 of which were mature, 34 were fertilized, and 12 made it to the blastocyst stage. Of those, we ended up with 3 healthy (determined by genetic testing) high-grade embryos to freeze for implantation. I'm very happy with these results!
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Northern California. (Assigned nurse: Luciana Svilpa)
The nursing staff at RMA is just incredible. From doing quick and painless blood draws to providing clear explanations and demonstrations of preparing and administering injections, the level of communication, attention, and care was outstanding. During my HSG test, one nurse held my hand throughout, keeping my attention directed at her rather than on the uncomfortable procedure, distracting me with light conversation. She was an angel.
Describe your experience with RMA of Northern California.
RMA Northern California is a state of the art clinic with world-class doctors and staff. They are highly communicative—you will always get to speak to an actual person—same day. They took care of dealing with my insurance, which was a huge relief, and were completely transparent about billing. There were no hidden fees or financial surprises afterward. They have plenty of nurses so wait times are never too bad, and very flexible hours to accommodate work schedules. They use an app called Spruce to communicate, which was one of the things I loved the most about being an RMA patient. Any question, no matter how small, is answered right away.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of Northern California.
Monitoring appointments at RMA were an efficient well-oiled machine—easy in, easy out.

Dr. Kort is incredibly caring, knowledgeable and genuine. It meant a lot he would remember little bits of our conversation from previous appointments. I loved that he didn’t push me towards moving forward with any services at our consult and truly wants the best for his patients. He has great bedside manner (so refreshing!) and kindly answered my endless questions. When I had an injection mishap late on a Sunday night, Dr. Kort got back to me right away on next steps through the Spruce app.
Vicki, Paige and the rest of the team at RMA are incredible. They were so patient dealing with my small veins and answering my numerous questions...Make sure you have your prescription and insurance squared away before your cycle starts so you aren’t panicked about meds arriving in time like I was. When my period started earlier than expected, the RMA team didn’t hesitate to quickly take action and make sure I was set....
How was your experience with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
I normally don’t post many reviews, but I felt compelled to review Dr. Kort (the positive reviews aren’t too good to be true!) Dr. Kort feels like a trusted friend with my best interests at heart. He provides concierge-level care and his thoughtful nature soothes any nerves or anxiety you may have. I’m someone who doesn’t do okay with foreign objects in my private area (truly, like I disliked Pap smears so much I *accidentally* went 7 years between them) but Dr. Kort is kind, communicative and compassionate with ultrasounds and all communications. I felt very lucky he did my egg retrieval and I saw him for all but one appointment.

Dr. Kort didn’t skip a beat and was a total champ about it! In my check-ups he identified things I should keep an eye on annually that I never would have known about. I’m so incredibly grateful to Dr. Kort and have recommended him/RMA to countless colleagues and friends!

Vicki, Paige and the rest of the team at RMA are incredible. They were so patient dealing with my small veins and answering my numerous questions (e.g., no you shouldn't do reformer Pilates during cycle). I apparently asked if I could nap longer after my procedure and they graciously rolled with the punches. Who knew RMA was spa-like in so many ways!
Describe your experience with RMA of Northern California.
Jena at the front desk and the entire RMA team were so welcoming. They were also very accommodating with my schedule - I was nervous about traveling from the east bay, starting a new job and potentially missing work, but it never was an issue. The appointments were a breeze!

Dr Kort immediately understood that time was a priority for me and he adjusted to my schedule with the egg retrieval cycle. He even worked around my holiday schedule so we didn't have to cancel personal plans...While explaining the procedures clearly and professionally, Dr Kort also cared about my feelings and my mental well being...I generally received answers to all my questions within 15 minutes even outside business hours. We never had to feel anxious when waiting for fertilization rates or PGT results as we were updated in a timely manner.
There are 2 locations [of RMA of Northern California]. Palo Alto and SF. They offer monitoring appointments in either location. If you have a strong preference to be seen by the same doctor you might need to alternate between the 2 locations. If you prefer to always go to the same location, the doctors are rotating. They only operate in SF. Egg retrieval and transfer are only in SF...[nurse] Responds in a timely manner within 15 minutes via spruce instant messaging system...
How was your experience with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
Dr Kort is knowledgeable, professional and kind. His best interest is for us to have not just a healthy pregnancy but also a healthy baby who will grow up to be a healthy human being later on in life. Dr Kort never left us in doubt or in waiting about results at different stages of our egg retrieval cycle or PGT testing. He and his team respond quickly, no question is a bad question, they answered every time I had the smallest concerns. A different clinic put me on a waitlist, that is when I changed to RMA. Dr Kort immediately understood that time was a priority for me and he adjusted to my schedule with the egg retrieval cycle. He even worked around my holiday schedule so we didn't have to cancel personal plans. Despite the successful egg retrieval we ended up conceiving naturally, and Dr Kort was the happiest for us. It is a testimony that they don't look at patients as numbers or mere paying customers. He made sure to monitor my pregnancy hormone levels until my OBGYN was ready to take me on. Dr Kort is still available to me for the next few months via their spruce instant messaging system in case I have any questions. He is a fantastic doctor, and so is his entire team.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
Trust Dr Kort, and trust the treatment plan. 1st egg retrieval cycle is a learning experience for both doctors and patients to see how the body responds to the hormones. 2nd cycle he made some personalized adjustments for me which yielded much better results. His best interest is for his patients to have a healthy pregnancy. Trust him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
While explaining the procedures clearly and professionally, Dr Kort also cared about my feelings and my mental well being. We changed clinics to see RMA as the other clinic put me on a waitlist unannounced. Dr Kort made sure he was always keeping us updated about anything treatment related in a timely manner, so we could make educated decisions. I generally received answers to all my questions within 15 minutes even outside business hours. We never had to feel anxious when waiting for fertilization rates or PGT results as we were updated in a timely manner. We also ended up conceiving naturally, and the clinic and Dr Kort was so happy for us, despite losing a paying patient. OBGYNs typically don't see pregnant women until 8-9 weeks but Dr Kort ensured that RMA confirmed my pregnancy via blood test and monitored my pregnancy hormone levels until I was ready to graduate to my OBGYN. They still offer support via their spruce messaging system for a few more months.
Describe the protocols Jonathan Kort used in your cycles at RMA of Northern California and their degree of success.
During my first round of egg retrieval at a different clinic, I had 1 genetically healthy embryo out of 13 eggs retrieved. In my 2nd cycle with Dr Kort I had 3 genetically healthy embryos out of 13 eggs retrieved. Basically ball blastocysts were genetically healthy. I used gonal f pen, menopur, cetrotide antagonist and Lupron trigger in my first cycle. In my second cycle I had a higher dosage of gonal f and also human growth hormone every other day. The rest was the same.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California.
Roughly $30,000 for one round of egg retrieval including hormone injections, human growth hormone, genetic testing of the embryos. We only had to pay the out of pocket responsibility and copay according to our insurance.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He [Dr. Kort] tried so many creative methods when essentially everything failed, and always asked me if I was okay with treatments and listened to my many questions...Dr. Kort is so kind to the extent that he might shy away from being as blunt as necessary (I felt that way, at least - he just doesn't want to scare you with bad news before it's for certain, which is totally understandable). So, don't be afraid to ask hard questions if you want to know all the odds and adversities you could face!...
RMA is hands down an incredible clinic. You're always seen by a physician for your ultrasounds...you're always treated extremely well by literally everyone that works there - from the receptionists to the embryologists. Their texting/telemedicine app Spruce is so handy and easy to use. They message you so promptly and never failed to give me instructions, updates...The nursing/medical assistant staff at RMA is just as incredible as the physicians...
How was your experience with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
Dr. Kort cares so much about his patients and you can tell he's just genuinely a very good human. My one "qualm" is that he was a little too optimistic about my case, but frankly, no one could have known the results would be so poor. My case is extremely severe and rare for someone my age, so I do not blame him for being hopeful. He tried so many creative methods when essentially everything failed, and always asked me if I was okay with treatments and listened to my many questions. Being a bit of a smarty-pants myself, I know I am a difficult patient that always wants to understand the what and the how, does maybe a little too much PubMed research on her own, and is always thinking two steps ahead. I appreciate Dr. Kort so much for still treating me with patience and kindness. My friends in medicine jokingly say that I'm basically a physician's worst nightmare with my "know it all" ways, yet Dr. Kort never made me feel that way and always had my best interest at heart.

So, don't be afraid to ask hard questions if you want to know all the odds and adversities you could face!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
Dr. Kort was so kind to me from the get go. I walked into RMA thinking this would be a two week process given my young age (I was 26), and instead, found out I was perimenopausal and basically had ran out of eggs. Dr. Kort is compassionate and really understands the weight of all the bad news he has to share with me when things go wrong (which has been, essentially, all the time). If anything, I feel bad for putting him in a position where he has to consistently tell me things aren't going well, but he never seems to lose his patience with me or give up. I'm so beyond grateful for all that Dr. Kort taught me and the knowledge he brought into my life. Also, my wonderful GYN was one of his instructors during his residency/fellowship and was thrilled when I told her who my RE was. She said he was one of the nicest physicians she's ever trained!
Describe the protocols Jonathan Kort used in your cycles at RMA of Northern California and their degree of success.
I have used so many different protocols. Clomid priming, Letrozole priming, high amounts of Gonal F/Menopur, natural retrievals, Omnitrope, etc. My body basically didn't respond to any of them, but that's on me and my genetic condition, not on Dr. Kort.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at RMA of Northern California.
The nursing/medical assistant staff at RMA is just as incredible as the physicians. They're SO nice, compassionate, and I feel like they genuinely became my friends. When I went in for my (many) retrievals and procedures, I loved catching up with them, they knew me well and asked about my life. I genuinely feel like part of the RMA family and will miss them so much once I'm no longer a patient.
Describe your experience with RMA of Northern California.
RMA is hands down an incredible clinic. You're always seen by a physician for your ultrasounds, and I became basically just as close to Dr. Kaser and Dr. Morin as I did with Kort. They even did some of my retrievals/hysteroscopy, but I never felt uncomfortable or like I was a stranger. My friends who had Dr. Morin as their RE also rave about him, and I can see why. Whenever you go in, you're always treated extremely well by literally everyone that works there - from the receptionists to the embryologists. Their texting/telemedicine app Spruce is so handy and easy to use. They message you so promptly and never failed to give me instructions, updates, etc. I know I'm a high maintenance patient, so I appreciated that. If Dr. Kort wasn't available, Morin or Kaser would get back to me super quickly, too. I can't think of any weaknesses, frankly. All the doctors are such hard workers and clearly trying their best with every patient. I can tell they're not just in it for the money, but they truly want to help people build their families. I have sent multiple friends to RMA for egg freezing, and not a single one of them has had a bad experience.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California.
I had my treatment covered by Progyny, so I'm not aware of the costs.

Dr. Kort had a great balance of being friendly and warm while also remaining professional and reassuring. He was incredibly easy to communicate with, and was able to provide the exact level of detail we needed, tailoring his plan to our schedule and lifestyle. We were dealing with an extremely tight timeline due to COVID-19 threatening to shit down cycles, and I felt like he was able to ensure a safe environment while maintaining a sense of urgency and care. My expectations were managed well, and I feel like we got the best care possible.
RMA is incredibly convenient if you live or work in both Silicon Valley or San Francisco. There is ample parking, the office is new, clean and very high end. It almost felt like going to the spa! The one drawback is they can get pretty busy and sometimes the waiting room is packed during peak hours....The nursing staff became like family. They are incredibly welcoming and warm, and very organized. Usually I was in and out of appointments in less than 15 minutes.

[Dr. Jonathan Kort is a] a great Dr. I came to him after a sub par experience with a Dr at another clinic and the difference in treatment was like night and day. I have a very hectic work schedule and I was surprised at how accommodating he was of this. Overall very positive, calm and there for me...he has a great bedside manner, instills confidence and really cares about you and your treatment...will work with you and your needs. We did eSET because that is what made the most sense in my situation. My embryos had all been PGS tested. This was the best course of treatment and ensured a healthy baby outcome which is what everyone wants.
[Califonia IVF is] Part of a larger group but didn't feel that way. As a business woman, with an eye for these kinds of things, I sometimes thought of ways that they could have increased their income from me or increased their effeciency but it was good to see that they didn't do all of these things just because they could (that was why I left my last clinic). They have the right balance between running a good operation and also putting the needs of an individual patient going through a fairly taxing life experience first...I was seen to by about 8-10 nurses overall. This wasn't a bad thing for me and is more so a reflection of the long hours they're open, the range of treatments I had and the fact that they work as a team. I didn't have one nurse that I didn't like and they were all really nice to me.

[Dr. Jonathan Kort] recommends single embryo transfer and outlines the reasons why...Kind, compassionate, dedicated, patient, smart, good listener and the list goes on. He took the time to get to know us during our first visit and anytime we met with him or had a call he never rushed us through the conversation and took the time to answer questions. When we didn't have success on our first our second round of IVF I could tell he felt just as disappointed as we were, but was so encouraging that he felt confident we would have success which kept our optimism high.
the entire staff of nurses and front desk [at RMA of Northern California] were amazing throughout the entire process. I always felt like we were the only patient they were treating and have never had such easy access to any doctor I have seen to ask questions through their Spruce app. I was amazed how quickly they would respond to questions or concerns. The staff is incredibly kind and took the time to get to know us during our treatment. I will actually miss seeing all of them!
How was your experience with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
Dr Kort is the gold standard for the type of doctor that every patient deserves to have for medical treatment. Kind, compassionate, dedicated, patient, smart, good listener and the list goes on. He took the time to get to know us during our first visit and anytime we met with him or had a call he never rushed us through the conversation and took the time to answer questions. When we didn't have success on our first our second round of IVF I could tell he felt just as disappointed as we were, but was so encouraging that he felt confident we would have success which kept our optimism high. As we headed into our third round he followed up with links to recent research on a new technique we were trying for our third round of IVF where we ended up with a transferable embryo. Everyone should be lucky enough to have a doctor(s) like Dr Kort (and Morin)!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
Dr Kort is the best! You are in great hands with a doctor who is truly invested in your success and cares about you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
Dr. Kort (primary doctor), Dr. Morin and the entire staff of nurses and front desk were amazing throughout the entire process.

Describe the protocols Jonathan Kort used in your cycles at RMA of Northern California and their degree of success.
We tried a different protocol for each IVF round based on the results from the previous rounds. The first round we used Gonal, Menopur and Ganirelix and retrieved 11 eggs, 10 mature and 1 made it to blastocyst for genetic testing. The second round we switched to Lupron (morning and evening), Menopur, Gonal with Omnitrope (human growth hormone). We retrieved 15 eggs, 11 mature, 4 made it to blastocyst with all coming back with genetic abnormalities. Our third round we followed a similar protocol to the second round except reduced the dosage of Gonal and we tried a different technique with sperm where we used a second sample an hour after the first sample during the day of my retrieval. We ended up with 15 eggs retrieved, 10 mature and 2 made it to blastocyst. One came back genetically normal which we transferred.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Northern California. (Assigned nurse: Luciana)
Like the doctors at RMA Northern California Luciana and the entire nursing staff is wonderful and kind. They care about your success and are always available for questions. Halle and Zoey make blood draws easy and painless and I have loved getting to know them. I felt like everyone knew my name and was truly invested in my success and was cheering me on!
Describe your experience with RMA of Northern California.
RMA Northern California paid attention to every detail when setting up this clinic. From the best doctors, nurses and staff to a convenient location, great operating hours (7 AM-8:30 AM blood draws/ultrasounds-making it easy to get to work), modern equipment, comforting exam rooms, warm snuggly socks for your retrieval procedures, it doesn't feel like a typical doctors office.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of Northern California.
I rarely had to wait more than 15 minutes for my bloodwork and ultrasound. They have an efficient system in place for monitoring appointments which meant I could always get to work in a timely manner.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California.
My insurance covered most of my costs after we met our out-of pocket max including medications. We paid for genetic testing ($1750) for all the embryos we retrieved.

I have PCOS. As such Dr.Kort made sure I was put on the Lupron trigger protocol to mitigate OHSS risk, and lower dosages of hormones. My estrogen did shoot up on day 3, so we lowered dosage accordingly...made sure to follow up with me personally if he sensed I was uncomfortable with something...was a very knowledgeable doctor. He was able to address all my more obscure questions including ovarian tissue freezing, and actually had experience performing such procedure during his time at Stanford. I definitely came out feeling confident in his breath of knowledge, and recency of knowledge, and I cannot say the same for all doctors. Both doctors at RMA also are fairly experienced with the actual retrival procedure, having done over 1000 egg retrievals over time. I felt very confident in Dr.Kort's ability as a doctor.
The nursing staff at RMA was great. Communication was very easy and real time thorugh the Spruce app. Blood draws were always painless and fast...[monitoring] was very convenient. There were monitoring hours but generally it's quite well batched and never too busy such that you have to wait a long time. You can sit comfortably in the waiting room...Strength - service, communication, organization, location, staff. Doctor knowledge and experience. There's not a whole lot of drawbacks. Appointments were easy to schedule and accomodated your own busy schedule. I was always able to pop in before work, and wait time was no more than 15 mins. Weakness - not much. Perhaps if anything, it is located in an liquifaction zone. But you can always move your eggs/embryos to be stored elsewhere.

We used an agonist protocol, utlizing menopur and Gonal F, followed by Cetrotide [with Dr. Jonathan Kort]. This resulted in an easy egg retrieval of 31 (!) eggs, 25 of which were mature, 21 fertilized and 9 made it to blast stage for freeze...deeply cared about my personal story, things I'd gone through before I met him and assured me that he'd take good care of me - and did!...He is able to take a joke (super important to me) and knew when to be serious as well. His only opportunity to improve is that during my HSG I felt he was almost TOO candid and then walked it back and 'wanted to double check' with his partner what I think he knew all along, that my remaining tube was blocked. Sometimes I wished that he would wait to be sure to communicate something with me but overall I appreciated his openness.
I appreciated that Dr. Kort and Dr. Morin at RMANorcal always start with eSET, which seemed like the right thing for me...The operating hours (blood draws and ultrasounds from 7:30-8:30a) and ease of getting to RMA Norcal were AMAZING. I could get in and out super easily well before any am meetings. Parking can be a bit tricky in the area but there are a few garages nearby. The clinic is brand spanking new and is state of the art. The rooms are outfitted with tv's and the whole place feels really high end.

He [Dr. Jonathan Kort] was very patient, showed extreme care, and found the right solutions to our many problems along the way...Here are some treatment strategies and protocols he used: - Complete genetic screening of egg donor and father - Estrogen patches and extra medication for mother's lining development - Surgery to remove polyp - ERA test to detect lining receptiveness - Multiple screenings...
The nursing staff at RMA is excellent across the board. We felt extremely well supported the entire time...They cared for us like nobody else. They were always available, in constant contact, and very attentive to our situation and needs. Their care is extremely customized to the patient’s situation and you feel like you are their top priority all the time. They quickly became part of our extended family, which is very important given how sensitive fertility problems can be.
How was your experience with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
Our experience as Dr. Kort’s patients couldn’t have been better. We met with multiple doctors in our journey to get pregnant and he was by far the most dedicated, compassionate, and competent. Our case was complicated and involved many processes, situations, and procedures: egg donation, genetic incompatibility, polyp removal, lining under-development, pre-receptiveness. He was very patient, showed extreme care, and found the right solutions to our many problems along the way.

Dr. Kort knew my Cancer condition well before I came in for our initial consultation. He was very thorough and detail oriented. He went over best case scenarios and was gentle with worst case scenarios - he proceeded with much caution. Exceptional bedside manner. Dr. Kort is amazing at communication even when I am not in the office - he uses Spruce to communicate results and updates.
One weakness is that some of them are not well versed about their pricing. My husband and I went in to meet with their [RMA Of Nor Cal] financial navigator and they were not well versed about the egg donor process. ... They are knowledgeable yet make you feel like family. Their strength is that they are caring, and go through lengths to make a connection and establish sound care.

Describe the protocols Jonathan Kort used in your cycles at RMA of Northern California and their degree of success.
Since I will be using an egg donor there were several different protocols. One for me and One for my Egg Donor. I am to undergo several rounds of medication mock cycles - Since I am on HRT - via estrogen patch - this will look somewhat different for me. We are finishing up the legal agreement with our family attorney - once that is finished - we will begin medicated cycles for my Egg donor
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Northern California. (Assigned nurse: Luciana Svilpa)
Excellent and real time communication - those words best describe the staff. The staff is somewhat small - but are definitely patient centered in their care. Every time I have called, they are cautious as to how I am feeling and to what I need. If I am calling in cheerful and excited, their energy meets me there. If I am calling and sound concerned, they meet me with concern and don't minimize my concern. They are knowledgeable and, if the staff doesn't know they are transparent and give me the confidence that they can get an answer for me. They always let me know at what steps they are and set real time patient expectations
Describe your experience with RMA of Northern California.
The staff is a small staff but they are mighty, I know that sounds cliche. They have this Savvyness about them that you know they will do everything in their power to meet your needs.

Dr. Kort is superb and is so available for all of his patients. He really takes his time to make sure you understand all your options and why he recommends certain treatments over others. He has called me after hours numerous times to queel my anxieties. ... There is no sense of being treated like a number or "just another case" when it comes to working with him. He knows about your case individually and treats you as such.
The clinic [RMA of NoCal] is located in downtown SF right by a BART station, which is great unless you drive there. ... Easy to schedule, easy to communicate, easy to get more information - basically everything I could ask for. ... Because I am doing IVF with PGD there are many extra costs compared to a typical IVF cycle. ... The entire [nurse] team at RMA norcal is easy to talk to and empathetic. Every time I go in I feel comfortable and at ease immediately.

Dr. Kort is calm, kind, and human. There is no sense of being treated like a number or "just another case" when it comes to working with him. He knows about your case individually and treats you as such.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
See Dr. Kort! I trust him implicitly after working with him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
Dr. Kort is superb and is so available for all of his patients. He really takes his time to make sure you understand all your options and why he recommends certain treatments over others. He has called me after hours numerous times to queel my anxieties.
Describe the protocols Jonathan Kort used in your cycles at RMA of Northern California and their degree of success.
I originally started with doing unmedicated IUI (gay, no access to free sperm), but shortly after found out I have a rare and fatal genetic disease. This news was traumatic in and of itself, but Dr. Kort was right alongside me, clearly and kindly explaining my options for IVF with PGD and making sure I understood what the new plan would be.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Northern California.
The entire team at RMA norcal is easy to talk to and empathetic. Every time I go in I feel comfortable and at ease immediately.
Describe your experience with RMA of Northern California.
The clinic is located in downtown SF right by a BART station, which is great unless you drive there. There is basically no parking, so don't try. Other than that I've seen nothing but strengths so far with this clinic. Easy to schedule, easy to communicate, easy to get more information - basically everything I could ask for.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California.
Because I am doing IVF with PGD there are many extra costs compared to a typical IVF cycle. I have no insurance coverage, so a single cycle (PGD probe creation, egg retrieval, meds, ICSI, assisted hatching, embryo biopsy, PGS, PGD, more meds, and FET) will likely be around 20k-25k
Describe Jonathan Kort's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of Northern California.
Strong preference for single embryo transfer. Will transfer two if you very much want him to, but will never transfer more than two (in my case). I came in thinking I wanted two transferred and he gave me clear and logical information as to why a single transfer may be preferable. We will be going with a single transfer

He had no hesitation in setting up frequent phone conversations and answering questions, and wasn't billing me for this time. ... I felt so reassured and cared for throughout the whole process and never felt like if any point I needed help, that I wouldn't be able to get a hold of Dr. Kort or his partner, Dr. Morin. ... He explained every part of the process, listened to all of my concerns, took time to answer all of my questions thoroughly.

How was your experience with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
This was the best patient experience I have ever had. It was not hard to get a hold of Dr. Kort with questions, including when I was doing my injections late at night. He had no hesitation in setting up frequent phone conversations and answering questions, and wasn't billing me for this time. I was hoping to go through the process fairly quickly for insurance reasons and Dr. Kort made sure that he helped with that, as I called to set up a consultation and he was able to get me in that same week. He was respectful and kind in his approach, and would even remember things about me and ask me about them at our next appointment. I felt so reassured and cared for throughout the whole process and never felt like if any point I needed help, that I wouldn't be able to get a hold of Dr. Kort or his partner, Dr. Morin.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
I would highly recommend going to RMA to see Dr. Kort if you want to have a seamless process where the doctors treat you with kindness and respect. They seem to really care about the outcome of your treatment, and partner with you to make the whole process as positive as possible.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
Dr Kort was so willing to help me through every part of the process. He explained every part of the process, listened to all of my concerns, took time to answer all of my questions thoroughly. We gave me his personal cell phone in case I needed to reach him and wasn't able to otherwise. He would call/text and check in on me throughout the process, and was willing to work around my schedule to make appointments. I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Kort.
Describe the protocols Jonathan Kort used in your cycles at RMA of Northern California and their degree of success.
The medications I used were Follistim and Menopur for about 11 days. My dosage of Follistim and Menopur increased throughout the treatment, because I had a lot of follicles that were just under the size that they needed to be and they wanted them to grow into the 15-22mm range. I used Ganirelix for the last 5 days or so, so that I wouldn't ovulate early, paired with the Follistim and Menopur. I used Novarel and Leuprolide as my trigger shots 36 hours before my procedure. Dr. Kort was able to retreive 20 eggs, and 17 were mature and could be frozen
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Northern California. (Assigned nurse: Luciana Svilpa)
The nursing staff on a whole was great, since I was working with many of them throughout the process. I went in for quite a few appointments at the end to get blood work and ultrasounds and saw the same 4 or 5 nurses throughout that time. They were all extremely kind and calm and helped me to feel calm and reassured. Luciana was the nurse who I worked with primarily, and she trained me to give myself the injections and help explain/train me on any changes to my treatment throughout the process. She was thorough and patient and made me feel confident in giving myself injections. She was quick to respond when I had questions and she made sure I completely understood all parts of the treatment. She also helped me on the day of the procedure by talking me through how the morning would go, helping me get settled and setting up my IV, and answering all my questions. She was warm and helpful and I felt like I was in good hands.
Describe your experience with RMA of Northern California.
The doctors at RMA seem like they are invested in their patients treatment and want success just as much as you do. They go above and beyond to make their patients feel safe and cared for. The doctors know that many people are going through a difficult situation and want to make this part of the process as easy as possible so that the fertility treatment doesn't add to the stress. The clinic had two locations, one in San Francisco and one in Palo Alto. This was extremely helpful for me, since I live in San Francisco and commute down to the South Bay, and I could go to either clinic on any given day. This made the whole process so easy for me. I don't have any negative things to say about the clinic.

While expensive, and emotionally and physically intense, getting treatment though RMA was actually one of the most positive medical experiences I’ve had, thanks to the level of care...All members of the nursing team were kind and competent.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
It is worth it. I was SO disappointed when I realized it would be best for us to do IVF. I am happy to say I am pregnant and the disappointment over how we got here is a bygone. Using IVF to get pregnant also grants the priceless bonus of knowing you are transferring a chromosomally normal embryo (if you chose to add this testing). While expensive, and emotionally and physically intense, getting treatment though RMA was actually one of the most positive medical experiences I’ve had, thanks to the level of care.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jonathan Kort at RMA of Northern California?
I felt seen as a person by Dr. Kort and the team, and respected as a patient. My treatment plan was individualized according to both my medical situation and desired outcome. Reception and medical staff remembered my name and where I was in treatments. Not only was this impressive but it helped the stressful and cumbersome process of IVF feel more manageable. Communication over messaging was always prompt. After my first diagnostic procedure, before I was even a patient of RMA, Dr. Kort messaged me within a few hours to ask how I was recovering. It was surprising to be checked in on, and yet also seemed so normal- wouldn’t it be lovely to receive this level of follow up with all medical experiences.

Dr. Kort is extremely personable, friendly, helpful, an insightful. He's always available to answer questions and is quick to respond with thorough and clear explanations.

He's friendly, warm, personable, and extremely knowledgeable about his practice.
I absolutely loved the attentiveness and warmth of care at RMA.

Luciana [nurse] is wonderful. She's kind, quickly responsive, compassionate and great at explaining the process. We were in great hands with Luciana.

As far as I can tell, Dr. Kort is using the latest strategies and protocols as recommended by SART. We did IVF with an egg donor. Dr. Kort reviewed our donor thoroughly and provided recommendations to increase outcome. We transferred a single embryo and had a fantastic result!...was always familiar with our case when we visited. He was very transparent, kind and encouraging with our treatment...is very knowledgeable about fertility. He was very thorough in reviewing our egg donor and made great suggestions leading up to the transfer. He has a great demeanor and we were always very excited to meet with him.
We did our appointments in the Palo Alto office [of Reproductive Medicine Associates of Northern California]. The office was very warm and clean. Bottled water and snacks are available as well. We were always greeted when we walked in and the doctor always saw us on time. They take blood samples on-site which was very convenient...[the nurse] Was very prompt in provided instructions and information. Very responsive to questions.
