Unsuccessful
Dr. Corfman constantly had to review to our chart when addressing us by name in consults. He constantly brought up the fact that there were people waiting after us. Outside of 2 consults - an initial and one after a miscarriage - we never saw him, heard from him, or spoke to him. I cried during a consult, which was very unlike me, and instead of showing compassion, he seemed exasperated...
Their office hours [at MW Center for Repro Health] are shorter than most, closing at 3:30 and it can be hard to connect with a nurse after 2:00 for same day questions. Strengths would be that the rooms for males is set apart from the clinic activity and offers privacy upon leaving...The ones [nurses] that have been there a while were great and super compassionate. They were hopeful for us and kind...
How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
After my consult, we never heard from Dr. Corfman again outside of him stepping in briefly to conduct an endometrial scratch. Even then, the nurses had everything ready so he was in the room for less than a few minutes without much dialogue. He seems to have a reputation for a quick diagnosis of PCOS and suggested donor eggs instead of listening to the patient. (Other clinics have confirmed this.) He is quick to remind everyone of his "busy schedule" at other clinics. He is not available during the summer and very dismissive of much, if any, support on weekends. I found his attitude to be cocky. My husband did find his graphs and charts helpful as he tried to explain our options, but it was obvious he didn't know our case well given the options he gave.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Look into other clinics in the Twin Cities. If you do see him, bring questions. He won't like to answer them but stay on track and be persistent. Remember YOU are paying HIM for service, not the other way around.

I cried during a consult, which was very unlike me, and instead of showing compassion, he seemed exasperated.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
A basic femara protocol with ovulation trigger shot. When cycles produced too many or too little eggs, it was me that suggested to the nurses they talk to him about adjusting my medication (which they did). I don't think without my advocacy for myself, my cycles would have been remotely promising.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
It was clear they have turnover and it seemed like many of the nurses were new to the lingo or didn't always understand the questions I was asking. The ones that have been there a while were great and super compassionate. They were hopeful for us and kind.
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
In terms of technology compared to other Twin City clinics, this is outdated and minimal. There aren't many bells and whistles - everything from your blood draws to your ultrasounds to your IUI's to your endometrial scratches are conducted in the same room. Their office hours are shorter than most, closing at 3:30 and it can be hard to connect with a nurse after 2:00 for same day questions. Strengths would be that the rooms for males is set apart from the clinic activity and offers privacy upon leaving.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Relatively average. Charged per ultrasound and vial of blood drawn. He would bill his time very specifically to the minute, and tended to get off tangent (and was hard to redirect).
What specific things went wrong at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Failed to inform you of changes in protocol
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
The clinic required much follow-up from me to make sure I have everything needed. When medications were given, they gave little to no explanation on how to use it and suggested I talk to a pharmacist. (In my experience with other clinics, the nurses were helpful in giving/teaching the basics.)

Success w/ Doc Not sure
From our first phone consult to the time we met Dr. Corfman we felt he was very knowledgeable. He was blunt, but presented the information in a compassionate way. We had to travel to see him, so we did not even meet Dr. Corfman until we did our egg retrieval. We still felt that he took an interest in our case and did not bow off our concerns...He is blunt and does not sugar coat things. We prefer this approach so it worked for us. The clinic is a small one and we liked that.
Our monitoring appointments were done at a satellite clinic near our home. The results were then sent to Dr. Corfman. We did not do anything at the clinic until our egg retrieval and transfer. This was convenient for us...The nursing staff at the clinic was amazing. We had a phone messaging system that was used...They did a good job of scheduling and making sure we did not see anyone else in the office at the same time. This made us feel like the attention was on us and we did not feel rushed.

We were always treated like human beings and not numbers. They did a good job of scheduling and making sure we did not see anyone else in the office at the same time. This made us feel like the attention was on us and we did not feel rushed.
Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
After multiple failed IUIs we moved on to IVF with Dr. Corfman. We did IVF in 2012 and I think it was a pretty standard protocol. The side effects were not terrible for me. I did get pretty uncomfortable just before the egg retrieval. I did like that I was awake for the retrieval so I was able to see what was going on. Unfortunately we only got 5 eggs from all the follicles I produced. Dr. Corfman was not concerned about this and all 5 embryos made it to day 3.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
The nursing staff at the clinic was amazing. We had a phone messaging system that was used. We saw a nurse practitioner at a satellite clinic for the majority of our treatment. She was amazing and we continue to see her.
Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
The number one thing we liked about the clinic is that it is small. There was only one time that we saw another couple. We also liked that we were able to stay in our community and go to a satellite clinic for a lot of the care. When we did get to Maple Grove the staff knew who we were and had never met us before, this made us a little more relaxed.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
I do not remember what we ended up paying. We were lucky that our insurance covered a part of the IVF.

He [Dr. Randle Corfman] was thorough and explained everything he was doing/planned to do. He was up front about our chances to conceive. He also gave tips on how to improve fertility while preparing for cycle (i.e. weight loss, vitamins to take to prepare for pregnancy, tips for male fertility, etc.).. He would provide follow-up calls, if necessary, himself. He also took the time to answer any questions you had.
The clinic [Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] did not allow children out of consideration for others. It also allowed for a quieter, more calm environment. It was about an hour away so we liked doing testing and monitoring at our local clinic and only actual retrieval and transfer at the fertility clinic.... It was about $17,000 for the fresh cycle but that excluded all monitoring because it was done locally and insurance covered it. The frozen transfers were about $3000 each.

Dr. Corfman is very upfront and straightforward. Sometimes that can be hard news but you can feel confident in the answers he provides you and your chances of conceiving.

Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
It has been too long to remember specific drugs used, but I know I had quite a few of them. There were drugs to prevent ovulation prior to the egg retrieval, drugs to increase the number of eggs produced, drugs to improve the lining, and an antibiotic for day of retrieval to prevent infection. I also had to take progesterone to support the (potential) pregnancies. Suppositories the first time and both suppositories and injectable progesterone on subsequent transfers. I tried metformin to help with the PCOS but I had a side effect of swollen corneas and could not continue.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
They were also good at explaining everything that was going on. You felt that they genuinely wanted you to succeed in achieving a pregnancy. With my first pregnancy they called back with the HCG results and you could hear her excitement in the levels. They made sure I was comfortable during all procedures. They also did a great job coordinating with my local clinic for basic testing and training monitoring of cycles.

Initially we were really impressed with the care and the clinic [Midwest Center]. We had the feeling Dr Corfman and his staff really cared about our well-being. Around the time and after transfer, though, when we had questions and concerns, they were more condescending and paternalistic. They were less willing to provide requested information...We did donor egg here...We went in fully prepared to transfer 2 embryos. Dr Corfman advised us to transfer one. We decided to transfer one but when we got to transfer day, the recommendation to transfer two was on the written recommendations. That was confusing. Otherwise the instructions were clear and organized.
We really liked... the staff [MW Center for Repro Health], but were disappointed in the attitude around and after transfer. The attitude really seemed paternalistic and dismissive..Initially we were really impressed with the care and the clinic... Around the time and after transfer, though, when we had questions and concerns, they were more condescending and paternalistic. They were less willing to provide requested information...Julie Johnson was really fabulous. So were the rest of the nursing and support staff. But when a couple issues arose, I got the impression they were being directed to be less than forthcoming.

Describe your experience with Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
Their results are really good. Which ultimately is what we wanted :) We really liked Dr Corfman and the staff, but were disappointed in the attitude around and after transfer. The attitude really seemed paternalistic and dismissive. Prior to that time we had not experienced that, except around some financial issues that had not been clear to us (we may have misunderstood). Ultimately the cycle ended up being less costly than we were quoted though.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health.
I don't remember the details, but it was less than we were quoted. We were told, however, that we could pay by credit card, but not warned that they would charge an extra fee (something like 5%)

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.

Started with IUI and [Dr. Randle Corfman] treated me like I had an immune disease and clotting disorder so I took baby aspirin and then Lovenox during my cycles. Also used Metformin for PCOS...He is a very smart doctor and provides excellent care!...was wonderful at drawing everything out to see and ask questions. Talked to you like his own children. He took the time to answer questions and you never felt rushed to leave. He always reviewed your chart and asked you what your thoughts were for next steps.
We were told in our follow up letter [from Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] that they had called to tell us that our embryos were “abnormal” and that we told them to go ahead and do genetic testing anyways... COMPLETELY did not do that. They called and said we had 2 fertilized embryos one was “great” quality and one was “good” and asked us if we wanted to proceed... and of course we did. Never were we told that it wasn’t a good idea to proceed or we never would have.

He [Dr. Corfman] is very nice and it seems like he loves his job. He gave us false hope. He told us that we had a 75% chance of getting pregnant and we ended up with zero frozen embryos. I was disappointed with how he felt so confident that he would get us pregnant. He rarely aided in the side of caution when talking with us.... He let us pick one embryo or two embryos but didn’t allow us to do more than two.
Front desk staff [Midwest Ctr for Reproductive Health] are well educated and nurses are some of the best. Nice facility, big waiting room and nice exam rooms.

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.

Suggestion from him was 4-6 times with Ovidrel. Went on OCP for a month which seemed to help it work better, but after 4 more failed attempts (no pregnancy) decided to move onto IVF.

His [Dr. Corfman] strength is in letting patients know their diagnosis in a completely understandable way - in laymen’s terms. He also was very encouraging & positive. Some negatives are that he was maybe a bit too positive that his methods would work for me & they didn’t. That was disappointing since he basically guaranteed they would. ... I was taking letrozole to produce eggs & had to give myself a shot every month to induce ovulation. I also took progesterone & estradiol to help balance my hormones & to ensure that any potential pregnancies would stick.
I don’t know very much about the clinic [Midwest Center for Repro Health] since I was only there once but everyone seemed very friendly. ... All of the staff members I interacted with were polite & helpful. ... They [nursing staff] were so compassionate towards me. They answered all of my many questions with patience and I never felt as though I was a bother to them. They were prompt to return my calls & let me cry on the phone with them if they had to call & tell me I wasn’t pregnant.

He [Dr. Randle Corfman] was blunt, but thats what i liked about him. If im spending a lot of money i want the truth not a fairy tale. He was always upfront and honest...He was as caring as he can be while explaining that this doesn't always work. I never felt like he was giving me more hope than i should have but also made sure i knew he would do everything he could to make this happen...I had a heart condition which made corfman decide to only implant 1 embryo. Which i was ok with.
I was allowed [by Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] to do monitoring appointments (lab and ultrasound) in my hometown which made this whole process easier...Egg retrieval and implantation was about 13,000. Meds were about 15,000...I liked they did not allow children at any appointment. Very sensitive to the situation. Front desk staff were also very welcoming. Slightly hard to find the suite but overall it was fine.check in process was simple and easy to follow.

He [Dr. Randle Corfman] read our charts and our lab reports but still asked a lot of questions like he didn't know the answers to them. It was our first time going through this and getting diagnosed so a little more information would have been nice...very nice and professional. He knows his stuff and explains it all pretty well so regular people can understand all of it. He does seem kind of rushed though but maybe he was just running behind when we saw him.
Professional and clean building and office space [at Midwest Center for Reproductive Medicine]. Easy to find location. Staff seems to be organized and they stay fairly on time with their appointments. Timely returning of calls and emails. Make sure you contact your insurance and get price quotes ahead of time...They [nurses] all seemed very nice. Some were definitely more knowledgeable than others.

I felt that Dr. Corfman was sure to run necessary tests and mibitorbme closely throughout these cycles. Most recently we completed a cycle of invitro. There were 18 eggs retrieved and 10 of those were mature. Of those 10, 6 fertilized using ICSI and 2 embryos made it to a day 5 fresh transfer. Currently, we are waiting for the results of this cycle.

He [Dr. Corfman] is super informative and always explained things so I could understand. His one downfall is he can’t be everywhere. So he’s not at every appointment. But I was ok with that for my situation. Also I do think he is a little old school in some of his practices, ie not putting the patient under for egg retrieval, however in my case it worked. Even though it was very very painful.... We did ivf with icsi. We decided on icsi because while doing our iui’s for some reason the eggs weren’t fertilizing. It was a fresh transfer on day 5.
Strengths are the well knowledges staff [Midwest Ctr for Repro Health]. They were able to squeeze me in for our cycle last minute which was great. And they did everything in their power to make that happen. Also they were good with any questions I had and always called me back promptly... Very sweet. Always informative and never made you feel stupid when asking questions.... Our cycle itself was around $14,000 I think. Medications were about $6,000

Working with Dr. Corfman was great he was very knowledgeable and knew what he was talking about and didn’t have to use a book. He made me feel like he knew what he was talking about and made me feel good about that. ... With corfman I was diagnosed with pcos and completed 3 cycles of letrozole and metfomin and femara. My follicles grew but not quite big enough to ovulate and get pregnant.
The nursing staff [Midwest Centeer for Reproductive Health] was very compassionate and caring and positive. ... his [Dr. Corman] nurses were very informative and caring and always there when I needed them. ... They were also knowledgeable and worked well with me and dr corfman ... Their strengths were their bedside manner and being positive and supportive and Dr. corfman being so knowledgeable. The weakness is being far away so having to do through my drs here and relay treatment plans. ...

He did give me the option to jump right to ivf but we decided to try it a couple more times. Once we decided ivf they put me on birth control a few months to control my cycle and a med so I didn’t get an infection for retrieval. I did a bunch of different shots and meds during the process.

Dr. Corfman is very candid and honest. He told us what we needed to hear and didn't sugar coat anything. I personally felt like he had our best interests in mind and honestly did what he could for us in our situation...If you're overweight (or a smoker), Dr. Corfman requires all patients to be at or under a BMI of 30.
I worked with the nurses [at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health] 90% of the time and they really are all incredible ladies...Wonderful, knowledgeable, incredibly caring, and made the process less terrifying...Their main clinic was nice. I did all but our IVF transfer at our local hospital/clinic.

Blunt, which I appreciated. Our first visit was educational. He discussed our issues (PCOS/Anovulation/Male factor due to varocosele) and treatment options..emphasis on IVF. We had already tried 5 IUI cycles at this point, so the next time we met was just before retrieval.

How was your experience with Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Blunt, which I appreciated. Our first visit was educational. He discussed our issues (PCOS/Anovulation/Male factor due to varocosele) and treatment options..emphasis on IVF. We had already tried 5 IUI cycles at this point, so the next time we met was just before retrieval. I live in Bismarck ND, so his nurse here handled the pre-IVF visit to go over drugs. All of my scans were sent to him for review and I used the phone system to check medication instructions daily. The clinic was nice, procedures quick, staff warm and comforting. Dr Corfman was to the point from what I remember before & after procedures, but still took time to joke with my hubby a bit :-) In the end, we were blessed with a beautiful son, Oliver.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randle Corfman at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health?
Don't be put off by his demeanor. He's very kind and concerned.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health. (Assigned nurse: Julie)
Asked me several times if I was warm enough... when we had a question 2d post retrieval, she was really quick to respond. Mostly she was kind and smiling and that's what I needed.

He [Dr. Corfman] takes the time to know you and thoroughly explain any questions or treatment. He is honest and kind... We had a great egg retrieval and lots of beautiful embryos. We did a fresh transfer on day 5 and were thrilled it worked! We are now back with Dr. Corfman for another cycle of IVF to a transfer in hopes of having another child...went over embryos and the number. He is very safe and smart with his recommendations. We did 2 embryos the first time (one was a healthy pregnancy) We are now trying for another and based on my levels from the previous treatment he gave his recommendation on transferring one embryo this time. I believe he gives the best recommendation for his patients.

Describe the protocols Randle Corfman used in your cycles at Midwest Center for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
We tried 3 rounds of IUI which failed and our sperm count kept going lower. Instead of continue about 3 months of IUI we made the decision to use IVF. It was a hard choice as there is a lot of costs in all treatments. However with our diagnosis it was our best chance. We did IVF with a lot of medications and injections. We had a great egg retrieval and lots of beautiful embryos. We did a fresh transfer on day 5 and were thrilled it worked! We are now back with Dr. Corfman for another cycle of IVF to a transfer in hopes of having another child.

You must know that he [Dr. Corfman] speaks the truth in a pretty blunt way.

Treated us with honesty and respect and cared about us...will tell you how it is, but in a caring way. He was honest with us and gave us his opinions, but let us guide the decisions that were made. He treated us almost like family and was very sympathetic when things didn’t go as planned and then celebrated with us when they went better than expected.
