My husband and I have been a patient of Dr. Khorram for 2 years...my husband liked his attitude. He said he didn't feel like a salesman and was direct...His transfer approach which he said in our first consultation was to transfer 2 embryos at a time, no more than 2 at a time...If you don't ask questions, he won't explain anything. So know the process to be able to have questions ready for him. He doesn't mean wrong and he'll definitely answer your questions but he won't elaborate on anything if you don't ask
The [University Fertility Center] clinic strengths I think honestly the pricing, approach, and cleanness...Weaknesses I think would be a bedside manner and appointment strategy...Ultrasound appointments were pretty easy to get. They said since the appointments were fast, they could schedule them at any time. I really like that there open on Saturdays. It made it easier for my husband to come along. They were also really flexiable with appointments.
How was your experience with Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
My husband and I have been a patient of Dr. Khorram for 2 years. I was referred to him by my OBGYN due to the fact that I only have a 1% chance on conceiving on my own. What we have to work with- one ovary and one blocked tube. I had my left side removed when I was 15 yrs old. Before diving into IVF, I did get a second opinion. The doctor I saw had gone through fertility treatment herself with Khorram. She warned me about his dry character but she said he gets the job done. She said, "he doesn't explain much, his a man of little words but he'll get you pregnant." When meeting with him I totally saw what she meant. Interestingly enough, my husband liked his attitude. He said he didn't feel like a salesman and was direct. The reason we worked with him for so long was due to some obstacles that came our way. I had a polyp on my uterus wall so I had to get that removed, then a cyst that wouldn't go away, then I got cold feet and then Khorram was going on vacation when retrieval was going to happen. Finally, we went through the first part even with the pandemic going on. I was sure he was going to cancel my cycle but they said I was exempt due to the fact that I had already started treatment. When he gave us the go on treatment, he gave us a sheet with instructions. He read it to us and that was it, no explanation on how I would probably feel, what was the medication was going to stimulate or anything. I was so nervous about starting, I honestly didn't even ask a question. We saw him every two days for ultrasounds and further instructions. Then I started to ask more questions. He honestly shares the minimal but he knows what he's doing. Finally, he said I was ready for retrieval and it was a pretty dry experience. Checked in at 6:20 am, I was done by 7 am. He shared that he was able to retrieve 12 eggs vs 9 that he saw on the ultrasound. After he shared that he left for the day. I rested probably 30min after. The nurse came in, removed my IV, explained what I would feel for the next two weeks and she went home for the day. My husband helped out of the office to the car and we were done. We didn't get any follow-up calls aside from the embryologist.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
Be Prepared! Do your research about the process, meds, egg retrieval process (he didn't explain anything about the process), aftercare, just everything. If you don't ask questions, he won't explain anything. So know the process to be able to have questions ready for him. He doesn't mean wrong and he'll definitely answer your questions but he won't elaborate on anything if you don't ask. Also, know that appointments take forever! I once had an appointment at 3:30 pm, I wasn't seen till 6:30 pm. I heard he did a mock transfer for someone that wasn't scheduled for that. I also heard that he only works Monday, Wednesday, Friday's and Saturdays in the office. So the pack in his appointments. He's a nice guy but his dry, just know that.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
Well, there wasn't much communication as I wanted which made me feel like a number. But the staff was helpful even if I had my doubts.
Describe the protocols Omid Khorram used in your cycles at University Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Since my circumstances were pretty straight forward with a blocked tube, he said the process was pretty simple. He said all we had to do was try with the meds and see how many eggs we get. I did ask him what if I don't produce enough eggs since I only have one ovary, he reassured me is that all we need is one good egg to get pregnant. That gave me hope. When I had the cyst on my ovary, his strategy was to get me off birth control to see if that will make the cyst go down. Thankfully it did go away.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at University Fertility Center.
From what I saw, they only had 3 medical assistance. I wasn't fortunate to have a nurse that was assigned to me as other clinics do. However, they were all really nice and helpful. I felt bad for them sometimes, when appointments ran late they would get the heat. It wasn't their fault, but they were always really nice.
Describe your experience with University Fertility Center.
The clinic strengths I think honestly the pricing, approach, and cleanness. I could tell that it is a fast service clinic because they help so many women and they have one goal which is to get them pregnant. Weaknesses I think would be a bedside manner and appointment strategy. My husband also said their weakness is their waiting room with uncomfortable chairs. I was fine with them but he had a hard time with the chairs and would wait in the car sometimes.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at University Fertility Center.
Ultrasound appointments were pretty easy to get. They said since the appointments were fast, they could schedule them at any time. I really like that there open on Saturdays. It made it easier for my husband to come along. They were also really flexiable with appointments.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center.
We paid everything out of pocket. I remember everything! Retrieval was $6700 which included ultrasounds, monitoring appointments, and med instruction. To freeze our embryos was $700 for one year. PGS testing, $4150 up to 8 embryos. Meds came from overseas which you order yourself through a website which I think was a little over $4000. The anesthesia fee was $350 cash on retrieval day. Transfer is going to be $2400.
Describe Omid Khorram's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at University Fertility Center.
His transfer approach which he said in our first consultation was to transfer 2 embryos at a time, no more than 2 at a time. We plan on transferring 2 the first round and 1 the second round. Since we are currently in a pandemic, I opted to do transfer when everything clears out. He said that was a good idea.
What specific things went wrong at University Fertility Center?
  • Lost appointments
Describe the specific things that went wrong at University Fertility Center.
For our very first appointment, they failed to call me to let me know the appointment was canceled. Keep in mind that I made this appointment a month in advance and since it was in the afternoon, I asked my husband to request the day off. When we walked into the office, it was empty and they said that my appointment was cancelled and they had a note that I was called. But I never got the phone call or message. After that, I was always scared about my appointment being cancelled. They don't call you to confirm your appointment prior so I would call the day before just to make sure. I was even scared they had cancelled my retrieval without letting us know. We got there right at 6:20 am and the door was locked. we waited for 5 min and then the nurse showed up.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
This doctor [Dr. Omid Khorram] makes you feel like a patient and no like an active participant of the process. He answers all your questions but gives little explanation of why he does certain treatment. I like to know everything that’s going on and there could be some resistant from his part in specifying with detail his reasoning of chosen treatment...He is open to multiple embryo transfer (2)
The main thing that I don’t like [about University Fertility Center] are the long wait even with appointment. I understand there is only one doctor and he overbook him maybe due to cancellations, but you can spend an hour waiting to be seen. Being a small clinic, the staff knows you so it feels nice. Free parking and easy access...While in the clinic, they [the nurses] are helpful and open to questions. It’s hard to reach them over the phone or via email
How was your experience with Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
Dr. Khorram has been working with infertility for a long time. He is the type of person that feels like an expert, because he is, not really makes you understand and feel he is in charged. I met with him prior to completing an IVF cycle at another clinic, and decided to try with a different doctor as he was not warm or friendly. For my second cycle, I decided to give him a try because I heard they have a good lab. He listened to my concerns and gave me his opinion regarding different protocols that other doctors were suggesting. I haven’t started my cycle with him, but until now, everything is going well
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
Don’t expect a warm, friendly doctor but does let that be a reason to not give him a chance. He is very straight forward and would prescribe you the treatment he feels is appropriate without further discussion, however, if you have thirst for knowledge like me, he will answer your questions, but you need to come prepare.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
This doctor makes you feel like a patient and no like an active participant of the process. He answers all your questions but gives little explanation of why he does certain treatment. I like to know everything that’s going on and there could be some resistant from his part in specifying with detail his reasoning of chosen treatment. My first doctor was very warm and caring, but I decided to switch to Dr Khorram because I’m already familiar with the process and I’m ok with his personality
Describe the protocols Omid Khorram used in your cycles at University Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Compared with other doctors I consulted with, Dr Khorram’s protocol was the one with less medication (no dosage but type of medication), mainly menopur. I still haven’t try them but based on my research, it should have similar results than my last protocol. I’m excited to try it
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at University Fertility Center.
I’ve only met two. Not sure if there are more. While in the clinic, they are helpful and open to questions. It’s hard to reach them over the phone or via email

Describe the costs associated with your care under Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center.
The price is affordable. I’m paying out of pocket and because I already did all of the diagnostic testing in the last clinic, the cost of IVF with meds is about 11 to 12k. No genetic testing

He [Dr. Omid Khorram] seemed nice and professional. I didn’t have much questions for him. He did give me an ultrasound and said I had plenty of eggs & to follow his prescription instructions. Then, I never heard from him again...After I left his office, I did everything I was supposed to do...he did mention multiple embryo transfer, but I didn’t ask much questions about the process.
[University Fertility Center] Strength- There is plenty of parking & I didn’t have to wait long to be seen by the doctor for the consultation. Weakness- There is a lack of communication with patients. Availability- They do consultations on the weekend too...they [nurses] were negatively discussing matters of another patient...billing lady mailed me a incorrect statement. She apologized, and was nice.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
The X-ray tech that they recommend for an HSG, does not have many appointments open. Also, she kept canceling on me. I would give the advice to ask if there are alternate places that you can go to.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
After I left his office, I did everything I was supposed to do. I bought the recommended supplements, took all the blood test for husband and I, got all the xrays & ultra sound done. Then when I tried to reach him, he never called back. I would call the office, and they would tell me to call back or leave a message. It has been 6 months, with me calling the office every couple of weeks. The only person that I have spoke with, is the billing agent. I paid all my fees to them, and she said that she’ll have the doctor call me. However, I received no call.

Dr. Khorram was not warm, friendly or encouraging. He is straight to the point and will not elaborate unless questioned. During checks ups he wouldn't even say "hi" when he walked into the room. Just right to business. Could be due to maybe having a lot of clients?...I would feel confused at times with the reasons for what he chose to do for my protocol. When I would ask him to clarify, he would often give one word answers and again, I would be left feeling confused.
Strengths [at University Fertility Center] would be that the cost of the procedures are very affordable and they will work during holidays...They seem short staffed and the nurses will not remember you. It felt a bit frazzled. But they are nice and will help if they aren't too busy...Get ready to wait a long time if you are monitoring on the weekends. At times we would need to wait 3 hours to be seen. If it was during the week, it would take around 30 mins...Very afforable! Our full cycle for IVF was around $13,000

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?

They partner with discount pharmacies to help with medicine costs.
How was your experience with Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
Dr Khorram is very knowledgeable and was very accurate with timing my cycles. He doesn’t reject any patient and in return the clinic is very busy. He usually will not explain what he’s looking for during an ultrasound unless I ask. After each ultrasound he takes patients to his office to give next steps. This is where I get to ask more questions also.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
Be very patient with wait times and give yourself at least 2 hours even though your appointment will only take 10-15 minutes.

Describe the protocols Omid Khorram used in your cycles at University Fertility Center and their degree of success.
First cycle he had me take 2 viles of stim hormones in AM and 2 viles in PM. For my second cycle he upped the dosage to 3 viles AM & PM. He also did a fresh cycle with 5 day embryos the first time, the second time he did a frozen embryo transfer 2 months after egg retrieval.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at University Fertility Center.
The nurses are also the receptionist and they are very nice people, but very overwhelmed. They probably see 2 or 3 patients per time slot. ie: 2 patients have appointment at 1pm, 2 patients at 1:15pm, 3 patients at 1:30pm, and they start to fall behind.

They also don’t call to confirm appointments, it is up to you to remember and show up.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center.
For my first IVF cycle with Stims, pills, a fresh cycle and PGS testing, we paid about $18K. For our second IVF round, with a frozen cycle and no PGS testing we have spent so far about $15K, but we are still in the middle of it.

Dr. Khorram doesn’t sugar coat and can have no emotion when he tells you what’s going on with your IVF process. Even his emails can be short using one word answers or least comments as possible. I give him the excuse that he’s probably real busy answering other emails and voice messages, which is the cause for his short answers.... I bled upon my transfer day when Dr. Khorram was about to transfer 3 embryos. Because of the unexplained bleeding, he told me he couldn’t continue because bleeding and embryos don’t mix. Therefore, he said that he’d have to freeze my embryos
I would say the strength of the clinic [University Fertility Ctr] is mainly lowest cost in the Los Angeles area that I have researched so far. They are honest. Weakness would be the prolonged appointment wait time, but what would you expect, Dr. Khorram is in high demand. Be ready to wait longer hours on top of your originally planned appointment. Also, weakness was that you really need to ask what the next step would be and what to expect, side effects, pros and cons, seek advice and make sure you get all your questions ready to ask

Doctor transfer multiple embryos first transfer which they were not PGS tested and poor quality. Second transfer he transferred a single better quality embryo PGS tested normal (failed) Third transfer 2 genetically normal embryos( failed)...Dr. Khorram is a very honest and blunt doctor. It takes many many appointments for It to feel like he knows you or your case. He is definitely very experienced but does not take time to patiently listen. He sometimes seems rushed with appointments and even irritated with questions.
This clinic has very reasonable cost. Wait time are long. This does not happen every time but very often...This is a busy clinic and the nursing/office staff [of University Fertility Center] do their very best to tend to patients. 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. There are only two nurses typically in the office at a time.
How was your experience with Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
Through the appointment the doctor projects confidence and expertise. I trusted him on day one. He made me feel comfortable without trying to to tip toe around the topic. I loved that he was direct. I actually appreciate that this doctor does not tap into emotions very much. I feel it helps keep me as a patient focused on the facts. I felt this way after my first round of ivf , but during the second egg retrieval i felt as if it took him too long to put interventions into place and time was wasted. There were Certain medical interventions on the market that he did not believe were valid he didn’t hide that he didn’t agree. I felt I had to convince and argue for added testing. As if I needed to advocate for myself with my own fertility doctor. Although I believe in self advocacy I strongly believe your doctor should be on your side or at least reflect that feeling.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
If you have a question then ask him. After the first appointment he will give you only the information that is relevant to the current stage of your treatment at every additional appointment. Yes, his cost is lower than others BUT I wonder if there is a cost to this. I wonder what the quality of lab is. I have to repeat ask the questions you have even if you feel rushed out. Do not leave until you feel at ease.

Approximately $30,000

Describe the specific things that went wrong at University Fertility Center.
I respect the doctor very much and felt his did his best. I do feel the clinic needs to slow the new patient intake to improve their quality of care and keep up with care of the facility. I sometimes felt that I was educating myself with new treatments and had to sell them to my doctor.

Dr. Khorram was a hands on doctor. He performed all of the procedures and ultrasounds himself. My only concern was that he was not good at communicating any of the information.

How was your experience with Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
Dr. Khorram was a hands on doctor. He performed all of the procedures and ultrasounds himself. My only concern was that he was not good at communicating any of the information. He would only give you minimal information. Although if you had questions he would answer them so be prepared every time you go with a list of questions.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
This doctor is very affordable and I am very grateful I conceived my twins with him, however, you have to raise your voice and ask questions. They will not hold your hand through the process, they give you the information once and you better remember every detail. You have to advocate for yourself. Speak up!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center?
Dr. Khorram's office is always very full. I use to arrive early to try and be seen at my scheduled time. I come from a small time with little to no resources so we were forced to go out of town for treatment. On one occasion I traveled two hours to get to my appointment only to be told that the Doctor had left and I was not going to be seen. They offered me no compassion.
Describe the protocols Omid Khorram used in your cycles at University Fertility Center and their degree of success.
After my 3rd IVF failed transfer I asked the doctor for a different treatment or protocol as the other attempts obviously were not working. It was only because I asked that we changed the medication and tried a new medication. I firmly believe this is the only reason the 4th transfer worked. Again, this would not have occurred if I had not requested it.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at University Fertility Center.
Nursing staff was excellent on some occasions and on other occasions they lacked any compassion or sympathy. On one of my cycles the nurse gave me the wrong results and informed me the pregnancy had failed when in fact it was positive. She reported the wrong numbers and I only found out once I called the lab directly.
Describe your experience with University Fertility Center.
Clinic is small and that is probably a good thing. You will always see the same doctor and nurses. I will always be grateful to this clinic because it resulted in my beautiful babies, however it did come at an emotional cost. I had some bad experiences throughout my fertility treatment. You are already very emotional because of the medication and sometimes they made things a little more difficult rather then making them easier. I have some frozen embryos there that I will consider transferring to another clinic for future pregnancies. However, the cost is incomparable to other clinics. It is very affordable and obviously there are several positive stories, I would just make sure if you go you completely advocate for yourself and ask questions.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Omid Khorram at University Fertility Center.
I did two retrievals and four transfers. I spent over $20,000.
Describe Omid Khorram's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at University Fertility Center.
Doctor always wanted to transfer multiple embryos based on the quality of my embryos which I understood. However, I was informed that if I got pregnant with more than two I would be forced to terminate one of the embryos, which would not have happened willingly. I agreed only to move forward with the procedure.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at University Fertility Center.
I was provided the wrong results. Post transfer, you do lab work to check your HCG levels. If you get positive results, you return in two days to see if your levels have doubles, signaling a successful pregnancy. On one occasion, the nurse read me the wrong lab results which suggested I had a chemical pregnancy. My levels had actually tripled.

Dr. Khorram is a very intelligent doctor and I trust he knows best. He could use some improvement on bedside manner, and explaining procedures to his patients. If I had a question I kind of felt like he was rushed or a little dumb for asking.... 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.
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.

Dr khorram is very straight forward...Initially, when we went in for consultation. I had doubts with him. I didn't feel that he was caring enough. But I was wrong. He was straight forward and a great Dr. He is very caring and also try to help you save money with the medicine. But be warned, even with appointment, you will need to wait at least an hour to see him but be patient, and ask lot of questions. I am now 5 months pregnant.
We love the nursing staff [at University Fertility Center], they understand our needs...We did 2 embryos transfer but only 1 survive...Cost is very reasonable. Definitely a plus...Dr and the nursing staff show compassion. Weakened: long wait but hey, I don't mind the long wait. It was worth my time. Disorganized a bit as it was small office. Strengths: caring, price, professional

He [Dr. Omid Khorram] comes off with little personality but he know his stuff and is very low priced. We were successful with both transfers. He is very professional and even thought I should just try again naturally. I saw him most every time I went to his office and he performed the egg retrial and egg transfer.... He was willing to do either way, I choose to do 3 [embryos] a time because of wanting to be successful the first time and was willing to have multiplies
They [University Fertility Center-Torrance] do all the everything there at the clinic but there were lots of long wait time sometimes up to an hour. The place was clean and organized. Small waiting room which I waited in for long periods of time. They do the egg retrieval, sperm donation and transfer there.... The nursing staff was kind but they sometimes made mistakes and were not good at communication

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He [Dr. Omid Khorram] did follow a systematic algorithm. Started with birth control pills to suppress all the hormones. Then menopur injections for follicle Stimulation. Last 4 days I was injecting cetrotide. 36 h prior to retrieval I did the trigger shot...opts for Multiple embryo transfer due to better outcomes but ultimately leaves it up to the patient...He was professional but did not have the absolute best bedside manner. A little bit of compassion at this time could probably go a long way. I had to probe a lot and ask lots of follow up questions in order to get the info I wanted
[University Fertility Center is] Small and intimate...ultrasound room is adjacent to his [Dr. Khorram's] office which is adjacent to the procedure room and embryo lab. Also, he contracts with an adjacent lab for blood draws so that makes it convenient. Ample parking. Never had an issue getting into the building...My insurance covered 80% of the cost and paid 20%. I paid all meds out of pocket
