He [Dr. Joshua Kapfhamer] is extremely warm, compassionate, and professional. He took the time to meet with us after a follicle monitoring appointment, even when we had no appointment scheduled. He reassured us big time and was so helpful. We would recommend him to anyone and everyone!...Antagonist protocol - kept doses low due to high AMH IVF w/ICSI PGT-SR testing (due to known balanced translocation) 1st FET of one embryo resulted in successful pregnancy!
This clinic [Center for Reproductive Medicine of Minnesota] is extremely organized and well run! They were very prompt when we arrived for appointments. They also answer phone calls very quickly, which is great! Weaknesses- sometimes the appointments were so quick and we felt like we didn't get as much direction as we would have liked...Recommended single embryo transfer, as embryos were genetically tested...Antagonist protocol - kept doses low due to high AMH IVF w/ICSI PGT-SR testing (due to known balanced translocation) 1st FET of one embryo resulted in successful pregnancy!

Dr. Kapfhamer took the time to stop, listen, explain and explain again and again. He changed our treatment so for the first time after 3 years, it worked. I can't thank his professionalism enough. He followed up, followed through and continues to see patients with high success rates (according to friends that I know that have seen him). He didn't just want to take our $ and not have it work again
I did not like this clinics [Center for Reproductive Medicine of Minnesota] pass of patient approach. They are also not as efficient with times and blood draws. I wish they had earlier weekday appts for those that work and handled people less like a number. You typically receive the answering machine...around 11k for IVF retrieval and fresh cycle, 3k for frozen, 5k for genetic testing
