Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Infertility is scary especially when you have serious medical conditions at play. Dr. Kaufman took the time to personally speak with all my doctors a d as well myself and my husband. We never felt rushed and he called to check in with me to follow up, just to be sure I felt comfortable moving forward from a medical standpoint...I was sent to him after experiencing a medical emergency involving reproductive organs. In all honesty, my OBGYN didnt think, recommended or want me to carry my own child. I was being sent to Dr. Kaufman as a second expert opinion on why it was dangerous for me to try and to use him for surrogacy options only.
About 15k to get started [with IVF at Fort Worth Fertility]. Each additional round if needed would be about 9 to 10k...Strength- knowledgeable and communication. The clinic is clean and inviting. My husband was comfortable and all additional labs were done in house. Weakness- Availability. It took a while to get in to see him [Dr. Kaufmann]...Dr. Kaufman took the time to personally speak with all my doctors a d as well myself and my husband.

How was your experience with Robert Kaufmann at Fort Worth Fertility?
Dr.Kaufmann was recommended to me by my OBGYN. I was sent to him after experiencing a medical emergency involving reproductive organs. In all honesty, my OBGYN didnt think, recommended or want me to carry my own child. I was being sent to Dr. Kaufman as a second expert opinion on why it was dangerous for me to try and to use him for surrogacy options only. My OBGYN set up the appointment for me and sent in all of my medical documents. Thankfully Dr. Kaufman was a doctor who understands the importance of allowing women to carry if they can , and he didnt necessarily agree with my OBGYN, so he sent me to a specialist who deals with endometriosis. After running more test and reviewing images from my last surgery that had happened about two months previously, both doctors agreed to disagree with my 1st doctor and felt that I would be able to carry a baby to term. However they did both agree that I would get pregnant on my own without IVF. Dr. Kaufman communication throughout the entire process was great. Having your main OB (whom you trust) tell you one thing and a new doctor tell you another was difficult. But Dr. Kaufman left the door open for communication. He wanted to make sure we understood all the risk or lack there of and our chances. He even called to check in on us after our follow up appointment with my OBGYN just to make sure no new questions had arose. Full disclaimer we have not proceeded with IVF, not because of Dr. Kaufman, but because of Financial reasons. We fully intend to use Dr. Kaufman office when we have saved the money to do IVF.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr Kaufmann tries to take the time with each patient, but smaller appointments like monitoring can feel very rushed if he’s running behind schedule. He’ll stay if you have questions, but won’t do additional explaining. ... In the middle of our first IUI, we’ve used femara instead of clomid to reduce side effects. Ovidrel for the trigger shot. Still in the waiting period to see if this worked.
The clinic [Fort Worth Fertility] is very busy, expect to wait. If the wait times get too long, they offer to flex with Dr. Patel. It’s helpful if you know a bit about the procedure before you go in, so you have a good basis of questions to ask. ... All cost are cash, not through insurance $450 for initial consultation $300 for HSG $95 for semen analysis $950 for IUI monitoring and insemination $168 for sample wash for insemination

Success w/ Doc Not sure
He [Dr. Robert Kaufmann] was very compassionate and sympathetic. He didn’t say the typical things you get from other doctors and he was very thorough with everything he did. Was very clear on our next steps, and was willing to explain everything in detail. He didn’t make me wait very long on the testing and was willing to start on anything as soon as we were ready.
The clinic [Fort Worth Fertility- Fort Worth] was very warm and inviting. To me, it’s better to go here than a regular OBGYN. When I walk into my OBGYNs office most women there are already pregnant and don’t understand what we are going through. It’s a safe place being at Dr Kaufmanns clinic. They are there to support and care for you. They are very sympathetic and helpful.

Be honest and open about the problems you are going though and everything you’ve tried to do. He can’t be much help if he doesn’t know what you’ve done for your fertility. Listen to everything he says.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Kaufmann at Fort Worth Fertility?
Not many doctors are sympathetic when it come to infertility especially when you’re at a younger age than others. He took me seriously and was willing to help in anyway he could.

After a failed IVF cycle with another doctor we received high recommendations for Dr Kaufman.... I wish if there saw only 1 or 2 eggs they would stop and restart...I never was informed of how many eggs they saw on the sonograms. Dr Kaufman was really friendly but I was left in the dark why he only retrieved 1 egg.... We started using lupron, garnelyx and follistim. Time specific for each medicine and they evaluated me every 2 days until the trigger shot.
Everyone [Fort Worth Fertility] was so friendly just wished they would have be more spoken about the number of eggs they saw on each sonogram and maybe stopped when they didnt see enough. They only retrieved 1 egg from me and led me to believe there was more... [Cost Of Treatment] 9700 for IVF cycle. Plus 6700 in medicines... After a failed IVF cycle with another doctor we received high recommendations for Dr Kaufman.
