Unsuccessful
Dr. Corfman is an intelligent, experienced reproductive endocrinologist. He clearly explained the likely underlying cause of our issues - from consult to failed transfer - and we felt confident in his knowledge. He also has the best bedside manner of any of the REs with whom we've worked... I felt he was personally invested in our success. He spoke to me like a human, rather than a patient, and treated me as I imagine he would treat his own family during consults and procedures.
The nursing staff at Dr. Corfman's clinic [Midwest Ctr for Reproductive Health] are amazing. They knew us by name and treated us as such. I have a fear of needles, and they often brought in their "best" needle nurse to perform my blood draws.... After our failed transfer, we received a handwritten note from one of the nurses. I could go on and on with the ways Dr. Corfman and his entire staff helped us to feel human and respected during this process.
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dr. Corfman is an intelligent, experienced reproductive endocrinologist. He clearly explained the likely underlying cause of our issues - from consult to failed transfer - and we felt confident in his knowledge. He also has the best bedside manner of any of the REs with whom we've worked (2 treatment REs and 1 consult RE). I felt he was personally invested in our success. He spoke to me like a human, rather than a patient, and treated me as I imagine he would treat his own family during consults and procedures. Unfortunately, our fresh transfer was not successful. And our stimming and retrieval also did not go as planned. When we consulted with Dr. Corfman after the failed transfer, it appeared there was information available at the time of the egg retrieval and fertilization regarding the quality of my eggs/embryos that was not shared with us throughout the process. Given what we know now (after consulting with other REs and embryologists), we would have liked to know the reality of our situation prior to the transfer. It may not have changed our course, but it would have more realistically managed our expectations. Dr. Corfman also indicated at our post-transfer consult that there would be no changes to our protocol, should we move forward with another round of IVF. He recommended donor eggs and possibly donor sperm. After consulting with another RE, we learned there are potential changes to make to the protocol and are in the process of a second round right now. It took time for me to be able to write this review of Dr. Corfman, as I have tremendous respect and admiration for him. My greatest hope was that our first round had worked in his clinic. That being said, I think it's also important to share that the recommendations he made for us (no changes to protocol and donor eggs/sperm) varied greatly from what another RE has recommended.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
If your round of treatment is unsuccessful, definitely consider consulting with another RE.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dr. Corfman and his staff are phenomenal. Throughout the entire process, I NEVER felt like a number. Dr. Corfman, his nurses, and his front desk staff knew us by name and treated us warmly and with kindness during every visit. After our failed transfer, we received a handwritten note from one of the nurses. I could go on and on with the ways Dr. Corfman and his entire staff helped us to feel human and respected during this process.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
While working with Dr. Corfman, we utilized the following: Pretreament: endometrial scratch Treatment: IVF with ICSI; Gonal F and Menopur; Ganirelix; Lupron and Pregnyl Rationale for treatment: male factor infertility and PCOS
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
The nursing staff at Dr. Corfman's clinic are amazing. They knew us by name and treated us as such. I have a fear of needles, and they often brought in their "best" needle nurse to perform my blood draws. They held my hand, cared for me when the egg retrieval drugs made me sick, and sent a handwritten note when our transfer failed. The nurses are also incredibly organized. A nurse spoke with me for an hour to introduce me to the process. Another nurse spent an hour with my husband and I during to teach injections (just us - no other couples). Nurses called after every blood draw to review next steps. They were available for emergency calls and never made us feel our questions were unreasonable or a bother. There were ZERO mistakes made by the nursing staff during our entire process. Or at least none that weren't fixed! We've since moved on to a different clinic, and we miss the nurses from Dr. Corfman's office. They are SO on top of their game and the best we've worked with throughout our infertility treatments.
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Dr. Corfman, his nurses, and his front desk staff provide organized, knowledgeable care with excellent bedside manner. If your particular fertility circumstances fit Dr. Corfman's methods of treatment, this is the place to go. Unfortunately, our circumstances did not result in a successful transfer, and Dr. Corfman felt we had limited chances with our own eggs and sperm. As a result, we consulted with another clinic and are in the middle of a second round with another doctor.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
We paid approximately $20,000 for a round of IVF with ICSI and fresh transfer.
Describe Randle Corfman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Our doctor recommended single embryo transfer (based on grade of embryo. genetic testing was not recommended). This was recommended due to my age and the high risks associated with multiples.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
We worked with Dr. Corfman a few times. He performed my HSG and it was done without any pain. He was very knowledgable and descriptive in our initial consultation and always very kind when we saw him in the clinic...I think we waited a little long to begin using fertility medications after natural cycles, so I would definitely say advocate for yourself and your wants.
Our entire process with this [Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] clinic has been pretty seamless. We have created a solid a plan, have really felt a lot of support from the nurses and doctors at the location. I really enjoy that I can complete my blood test or anything else that needs to be done during my visits. The strengths of the clinic would be their overall ability to educate and they are prompt on next steps.

Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
We started with 5 attempts on natural cycles, because my LH surge and cycle were very regular. After the 5th failed attempt we went in for another consultation and began Letrozole, a trigger shot, estrogen and progesterone supplements.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health. (Assigned nurse: Holly)
I love the nurses here. They are so kind, helpful, and the main point of contact throughout our time with this clinic. They are your biggest cheerleaders and so welcoming.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
My insurance covers some of the treatments done with Dr. Corfman. I would say in general for the IUI procedure we are paying about $300 a try, not counting the donor sperm. All in on 6 tries, medication, HSG, we have probably spent close to $10,000

Dr. Corfman was direct and incredibly knowledgeable when meeting us with and explaining how he would treat us. Both my partner and I really appreciated his straight forward approach that laid out ALL the options with details about success rates, financial cost, and time invested and then allowed us to ask any and all questions and make the decisions about next steps for ourselves.
Dr. Corfman is the only doctor here[at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] , so you know exactly who you're making an appointment with and who will be treating you. Scheduling was easy and available. The nursing and support staff clearly remembered YOU and your situation (even so far as joking about how all the nurses remembered which tattoo corresponded with the better blood draw arm...) and made appointments comfortable.

Be ready for a lot of information quickly, but very clearly outlined and written down with plenty of time for questions and clarification. But ultimately, we were able to make decisions about what path forward we were interested in.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dr. Corfman knew our personal issues and spoke to us / shared his plan for us from that perspective. ALL the nurses and other support staff at the clinic were nothing but friendly, knowledgeable, and supportive.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
Our overall protocol seemed pretty straight forward / by the book, but Dr. Corfman was the first doctor we saw who recognized my PCOS symptoms and treated that as part of our strategy. Each step was clearly laid out for us and all the information and materials were well organized and shared as needed so as not to overwhelm us.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Everyone was incredibly friendly, supportive and knowledgeable. Appointments were always on time and efficient while still being comfortable and personable.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
We only had a small amount of insurance coverage for some basic testing and after pregnancy confirmation appointments - total cost was a bit under $20,000 for our IVF cycle with monitoring, egg retrieval, meds, freezing, fertilization, transfer, and after transfer testing (and pregnancy confirmation!).
Describe Randle Corfman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Similar to what I've already shared, Dr. Corfman did a great job laying out all the options with pros and cons and then let us decide what made sense for our situation. We did end up opting for a multiple embryo transfer knowing the multiple birth stats but weighing the # of children we want, my personal health, and the amount of support and help we have nearby. We did end up with a twin pregnancy and we're very happy about it.

Dr. Corfman is a kind, gentle physician. During my HSG he took extra measures to make sure I was comfortable and free from as much pain as possible. We didn’t see him often during our visits, but he was always there with questions regarding our treatment.... I was diagnosed with PCOS and anovulation upon meeting with Dr. Corfman. He went about treatment cycles logically, but took into consideration your input and needs. He made sure we knew our success rates with each type of treatment and suggested

They’re only open until noon on fridays! I always forget that. I don’t have anything negative to say about this clinic.... My cost was definitely more than we expected for timed cycles with ultrasounds, medications, etc. however, the clinic was upfront about their costs and we knew this before treatment began.

He [Dr. Randle Corfman] will only transfer a maximum of 2 embryos. He will transfer 1 embryo but does strongly encourage 2 everytime...was very compassionate and fairly thorough. My wife has endometriosis and he did allow us to do 3 runs of IUI treatments but he did pretty heavily push IVF and was almost a little "salesmenish" kinda felt like an upsell. After 3 negative tests in IUI we went for a round of IVF which also failed. 2 issues we had was that we were not informed about the ICSI procedure and none of our 14 retrieved eggs were done with this process and only resulted in 2 viable embryos.
They [staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] were very friendly and they did a good job treating us like humans going through a difficult time...2 issues we had was that we were not informed about the ICSI procedure and none of our 14 retrieved eggs were done with this process and only resulted in 2 viable embryos. We were also not informed about potential "knots" in the injection sites and how to properly deal with them until we came in for the pregnancy test. Everything up until we learned about those 2 scenarios felt very comfortable but after learning about those 2 things we felt a bit burned.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?

Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
He does layout the entire process and gives a very accurate calendar of when you will be doing each step. He will only transfer a maximum of 2 embryos and does often recommend to transfer 2 if possible. He does give reasons as to why he does each step the way he does and from our research they appeared to be very common and best routes.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
They were extremely compassionate and comforting. Only complaint was that they did not inform us of "knots" at the injection sites amd how to deal with them. Which was pretty upsetting considering we discovered that this is a fairly common problem with the injections.
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
They are knowledgeable and compassionate and for the most part very thorough aside from our 2 complaints. The communication about the 2 issues could've been avoided had we been more prepared and maybe couldve resulted in a positive test. That issue I believe falls on both them and us. If we had researched better and known to ask about those 2 scenarios I have no doubt our questions wouldve been answered.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
They give you a very detailed calendar and time frame to expect certain procedures and monitoring. They let you know if we see X at this appointment then we will do this in response and what to expect at certain times. Very well done/planned.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
IUI was roughly $1,800 per treatment to which they recommended a max of 12 treatments. IVF was $21,000 and with fresh donor eggs add $10,000.

We used Letrozole because Dr. Corfman believes Letrozole is more effective and a better overall drug than Clomid...I was having a rough day emotionally when I had my HSG test and Dr. Corfman was very kind and gentle. I very much appreciated that. I do wish I had more check-ins with him than I did also...We had to request consultations after failed fertility treatments to discuss next steps and it would have been nice to have him request check-ins more frequently.
[Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] strengths: Dr. Corfman has a solid bedside manner and is an effective doctor. The nursing team is helpful and compassionate. Weaknesses: Wish there was more direct communication between Dr. Corfman and me. Wish there was more discussion of how we might change our approach since I never conceived under his care.
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
I wish Dr. Corfman would accept ALL women who are interested in fertility treatments instead of discriminating against women who are overweight, but as an individual patient I felt I was treated well by Dr. Corfman. In particular, I was having a rough day emotionally when I had my HSG test and Dr. Corfman was very kind and gentle. I very much appreciated that.

Mostly felt like a human but it would have been nice to have more interaction with Dr. Corfman. We had to request consultations after failed fertility treatments to discuss next steps and it would have been nice to have him request check-ins more frequently. Besides that, I was treated well by all the staff.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
We used Letrozole because Dr. Corfman believes Letrozole is more effective and a better overall drug than Clomid. I had five medicated cycles and one IUI under his care and was only monitored and administered treatments by the nursing staff. I also had a laparoscopy to remove an ovarian cyst (done by my OB) and I wish we had more of a discussion about the potential risks of this procedure. Dr. Corfman would not continue to treat me until I had this cyst removed, but I believe that the surgery harmed on of my ovaries because it stopped responding to treatment after the surgery. There was no discussion of this as a potential risk, and I still haven't conceived so I am not sure the surgery was the right choice for me. I do believe that Dr. Corfman is thoughtful in his treatment plans and that he is a great doctor; I just wish I would have had a choice in whether I had that surgery.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
I felt that Dr. Corfman did a great job at being honest and blunt, but we didn’t see him as often as we wanted. He also forgot some things on my chart, and had to ask us questions. But overall he is extremely knowledgeable, and good at what he does. ... Strengths: Extremely honest and won’t waste your time. Gets a plan in action and makes you feel like you can succeed. He balances optimism, while being realistic. He’s very talented and doesn’t give you false hope. Weakness: very busy, so I felt rushed at times.
Strengths: organized, timely, and kind. The nurses know your name and your case. The doctor is always on time. Weakness: Older clinic, not as yo to date with things as other clinics.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr Corfman and his nurses are very empathetic and made us feel very comfortable at all appointments and procedures. However i would have liked more information on why certain protocols were being used and especially during the time between retrieval and transfer on the number of eggs fertilized...There was a very standardized protocol which applied to all patients, you could also only go through the cycle based on his “class of patients” every 2 months.
Overall [Midwest Center for Reproductive Health was] very organized, strict protocols, and good communication via voicemail system. Wish there was better info between retrieval and transfer. Also he [Dr. Corfman] will take ur case if u fit within his parameters of the std protocol only...There was a very standardized protocol which applied to all patients, you could also only go through the cycle based on his “class of patients” every 2 months
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
We feel grateful the process worked so far for us - however we lost one of the twins at 9 weeks, and are now at risk of delivering too early at 20 weeks.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Dont question his protocols - if it works for you the first time around, go for it. But if the first round fails, most people try another Dr who is willing to try other options.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He [Dr. Corfman] was very factual, talked to me as he would any other patient with PCOS. ... He delved right into the facts of infertility. Likes to draw as he talks. Doesn’t give much time for interruption or questions until the end. Was fine for me, educational and explained things in detail. ... Said I could continue using letrozole with Ovidrel to try and get pregnant if I wanted. Just depended on how many times I wanted to go through a miscarriage (had 4 by this time). Suggestion from him was 4-6 times with Ovidrel.
Clinic [Midwest Center for Repro Health] itself is clean, but a bit outdated in cosmetic appearance. Not an issue for me. I’d rather they spend money on more important things! It’s inside a larger building and the office is tucked in the back corner on 2nd or 3rd floor... Worked with them [nurses] so far only by phone as I was seeing Dr. Corfman at a remote site where he does outreach, but all contact with his nursing staff by phone was wonderful. Understanding, helpful, quick response time.
