[Dr. Daneshmand] is willing to listen to you and to work with you to make you comfortable with your treatment path and goals. He was my 4th Dr. so I had lots of experience with many doctors and I appreciated that he valued my opinions and thoughts but was also able to help me understand what he felt would work for us and why. He also was always available to me to answer questions after hours. He was excited for us and always in our corner. He is very passionate, and is an expert in his field who truly cares about his patients.
They have a great staff [at San Diego Fertility Center] who are excellent communicators an well organized. It is a big clinic and ran much smoother than some smaller and larger well known clinics I have been to. Weaknesses- maybe that they are large so some people might feel less connected or more like a number however I never had that experience.
How was your experience with Said Daneshmand at San Diego Fertility Center?
Dr. D is so knowledgeable in the field. It was very clear he was up to date on the most current IVF information and studies. He is willing to listen to you and to work with you to make you comfortable with your treatment path and goals. He was my 4th Dr. so I had lots of experience with many doctors and I appreciated that he valued my opinions and thoughts but was also able to help me understand what he felt would work for us and why.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Said Daneshmand at San Diego Fertility Center?
Run don't walk to see Dr. D, he is so well educated and up to date on all things IVF, he is compassionate and real, and treats his patients like family.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Said Daneshmand at San Diego Fertility Center?
Dr. D was so personal and friendly. He always took time to talk to us about our lives and things outside of just the IVF world. He always remembered what we did for work and many other small details and would check in on all aspects of our lives at appointments. He was always very prepared at every appointment as well never forgot anything about our past treatment or experience.
Describe the protocols Said Daneshmand used in your cycles at San Diego Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I don't recall all my transfer medications we did use birth control, then estrogen and progesterone in oil for 12 weeks, which is a little longer than some Doctors but I like that he preferred to air on the side of caution with that. I had to have some other testing done prior as it had been over 12 months since my last HSG. I had a successful first transfer and birth as a result of this protocol.
Describe your experience with your nurse at San Diego Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: His primary care coordinator is My)
His primary care coordinator is incredible. She was so responsive to me at all times with any questions and never made any mistakes with scheduling or meds or anything. My nurse was the same way- incredible, kind, sensitive and always available to me.

I only ever saw Dr. D [Dr. Said Daneshmand} for about 5 minutes at a time, only a handful of times during my entire cycle. This is very different from my previous experiences and I do not prefer that. It is important to me to have a strong relationship with my doctor...he made big promises for improvement in an IVF cycle if we moved forward with him and did not produce results
They [San Diego Fertility Center] have a large staff which makes it very easy to get appointments scheduled and questions answered. Since it is a large clinic it is hard to feel not like a number...They [nursing staff] were phenomenal. Always took their time with me and never rushed me...My current doctor has asked for my records and still has not received them. I also never heard back from Dr. D when I let him know that I miscarried at 10 weeks. A simple response to an email could have gone a long way..
How was your experience with Said Daneshmand at San Diego Fertility Center?
He is very personable which I love. However, he made big promises for improvement in an IVF cycle if we moved forward with him and did not produce results. When we asked him what went wrong he didn’t know and we would have to do another cycle. Being so confident in the beginning did not manage our expectations and made the outcome of the cycle much harder to handle.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Said Daneshmand at San Diego Fertility Center?
Be proactive by doing your own research and asking for explanations at every turn, especially when developing the protocol. I trusted Dr. D to create a protocol that would work rather than continuing to do my own research. I let my guard down by fully trusting him to get me the results I wanted and it ended up in another cycle of most of our day 3 embryos not surviving.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Said Daneshmand at San Diego Fertility Center?
I only ever saw Dr. D for about 5 minutes at a time, only a handful of times during my entire cycle. This is very different from my previous experiences and I do not prefer that. It is important to me to have a strong relationship with my doctor.
Describe the protocols Said Daneshmand used in your cycles at San Diego Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Birth control start, 150 IUs of Gonal-F multi dose, 75 IUs of Menopur, Lupron trigger (I had severe OHSS in my first cycle where I had to be hospitalized). There was really no rational explained to us just that this amount of medicine would ensure I would not have OHSS this cycle which Dr. D thought could have harmed my eggs and the outcome of the embryos. We retrieved 27 eggs, 16 mature, 15 day 3 embryos, 2 day 5 embryos. Dr. D did not recommend PGT even though our previous cycle had the same outcome (16 day 3 embryos, only 1 day 5 embryo). Dr. D could not explain why the same thing happened. We transferred both embryos and it resulted in a 10 week miscarriage (same as the previous cycle). When we did a follow up with him he said we could try again with a different protocol but at this point we have spent $50K and don’t have the money to just keep guessing.

Describe your experience with San Diego Fertility Center.
They have a large staff which makes it very easy to get appointments scheduled and questions answered. Since it is a large clinic it is hard to feel not like a number.

He listened to my desire to transfer both embryos given the outcome of our last cycle ending in miscarriage at 10 weeks.

From the very beginning, our initial Facetime, Dr. D[aneshmand] was warm and accessible and kind. He took the time to explain everything and in a way that made us feel comfortable, hopeful yet fully aware of all the trade offs and solutions along the way. He took the time to know both my partner and I...Professional, knowledgeable, ahead of the curve, compassionate, accessible and attentive and solutions-oriented. We never once felt confused or concerned under his wing. In fact, we felt so good knowing he was on our team. He is the absolute best.
Omg the staff at SDFC is out of this world. They knew who my husband and I were when we first walked in. The office was beautiful and warm. We had a room with our name on it reserved. Every person on our team took the time to come in and talk with us and we left with hugging with each one of them. They were truly invested in our journey and so knowledge and kind...The clinic is exactly what you would hope for. It's clean, upscale and the staff is warm, friendly and professional. We may with a number of people during our visits and every one of them were just wonderful. You truly can't ask for a better staff and better clinic.

Dr. Daneshmand is smart, explained the process well. Didn't go into unnecessary details. We felt at the best hands. When the first transfer didn't come through, he explained why it happened and suggested we try again with the same surrogate even though we had our doubts, and turned out he was spot on...He is compassionate and you can see he is doing his job for all the right reasons.
Responsive, helpful, compassionate. Full of people who are there for all the right reasons. You feel welcomed when visiting the [San Diego Fertility Center] clinic. We had a busy day at the clinic, full of meetings, but they were so productive and professional, it went by smoothly...Dr. Daneshmand has treated many LGBTQ members in his past and he has lots of knowledge.

Describe the protocols Said Daneshmand used in your cycles at San Diego Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Don't remember much, but we remember the surrogate had to take injections for a long period of time. We were recommended on some vitamins before giving sperm, according to our blood test results.
How competent was Said Daneshmand at LGBTQ care?

Describe your experience with your nurse at San Diego Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Jenna Lake (I think) )
She did well to explain the whole process but it wasn't always clear what the next steps were. I think it would be great to get an explanation every step along the way.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Said Daneshmand at San Diego Fertility Center.
Don't remember the costs because they were mostly paid at the beginning of the process. We had two options - pay per transfer or pay a larger price in advance that would guarantee a successful transfer. We did the math and figured the guarantee plan would only be worth it if we failed two transfers so decided to "take the risk".
Describe Said Daneshmand's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at San Diego Fertility Center.
Dr. D was in favor of eSET because of health reasons.
Describe your experience using 3rd party reproduction (donor eggs, donor sperm, or gestational carrier) at San Diego Fertility Center.
We got an amazing egg donor through the clinic's database. She seemed like a good match for us so we were very happy. It took us a while to find the right person but it was worth the wait.

Get to know [Dr. Said Daneshmand's] assistant - she's the key to his calendar!...I was a surrogate under his care and he made me feel just as important as the intended parent and the embryos...very simple and effective protocol. Also, during transfer he had a great strategy for the procedure and made sure the location was just right. We transferred two embyros and I was pregnant with a singleton the first IVF cycle, having a beautiful baby boy in October of that same year.
Michelle [nurse at San Diego Fertility Center] was always reachable and treated me well! We connected on a personal level and she always knew my name when I walked in. I felt like she was truly invested in my process and seeing me through the entire way...Driving to San Diego was tough, but luckily I was able to go to a satellite clinic in Temecula which cut my driving time down by half. They all took the time to get to know me and all staff, from the front desk, to the phlebotomist to the nurse and doctor, were all fantastic.
How was your experience with Said Daneshmand at San Diego Fertility Center?
Dr. Daneshmand has found his calling and true passion in life. I was a surrogate under his care and he made me feel just as important as the intended parent and the embryos. He's a personable guy that makes you feel very important and at ease. Whenever I had a question he was only a phone call away and the day of the transfer I felt so comfortable in his care. He explained the procedure from start to finish before we even started. The intended parent had so many questions and he took the time to answer each and every one, as if he had all the time in the world.

Estradiol tablets and Progesterone in Fish Oil - very simple and effective protocol. Also, during transfer he had a great strategy for the procedure and made sure the location was just right.

He [Dr. Daneshmand] really took his time ordering all of the right tests and getting a clear idea of where are problem areas were. He was concerned about my health so while undergoing treatment he really stayed on top of my mess to avoid over stimulation ... He has this way of explaining things, and this warmth and sincerity that makes you feel like he’s with you every step of the way
They are some of the most kind and compassionate people you will ever come across in the medical field ...The entire staff was amazing, infertility is already heartbreaking to deal with. They understand that at SDFC and show nothing but compassion ... Aww qualified for their success guarantee program. You basically spend $30K but it guarantees a live birth up to 72 hours or use of all of your embryos, if love birth is not achieved you are refunded a portion of the cost

Above all else - I trust [Dr. Daneshmand]. I trust that he will be honest and candid with us, but at the same time maintain a positive atmosphere. I appreciate that...At times, we felt like there were too many patients being treated at one time.
The nurses [at The Fertility Center] are all very friendly and kind...At times, we felt like there were too many patients being treated at one time...We found out about our miscarriage while in the office, and I definitely think the nurses could have handled that better...Getting meds and injections ordered and picked up/delivered always seems to be a last minute, frantic scramble.
How was your experience with Said Daneshmand at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
Above all else- I trust Dr D. I trust that he will be honest and candid with us, but at the same time maintain a positive atmosphere. I appreciate that.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Said Daneshmand at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
Dr. D. truly wants all of his patients to have success, and as a patient you can feel that; feel that he cares about you and your partner and wants the best for you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Said Daneshmand at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
At times, we felt like there were too many patients being treated at one time. The front desk would cross wires with the billing dept., who would cross wires with our IVF consultant, specialty pharmacy, etc. And as the years went on, there were many times that we wouldn't receive information until we asked specifically for it. As opposed to being offered the information- what if we didn't know to ask?
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Las Vegas. (Assigned nurse: Christie Dabney)
The nurses are all very friendly and kind, and maintain a positive atmosphere at the office and during procedures. However- We found out about our miscarriage while in the office, and I definitely think the nurses could have handled that better. The 2 nurses left the Ultrasound wand inserted and left the room to go find Dr D when they coudn't find a heartbeat. My husband and I had to wait in the exam room for a few minutes not knowing what was going on with the wand in me! All alone! It was awful.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Lost paperwork
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to inform you of changes in protocol
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
Getting meds and injections ordered and picked up/delivered always seems to be a last minute, frantic scramble. And there were a few times I had to ask about upcoming meds tobe sure I had them because no one bothered to let me know I needed them. We were "accidentally" charged $500 last week (taken directly out of our checking acct), and when my husband followed up, (after they finally called back after 3 days)- they explained it was a mistake and we would have to wait for them to cut us a check.

Dr. Daneshmand was very kind with great bedside manner, genuinely compassionate. My only complaint was feeling deceived with total cost. We ended up spending almost double of the high end estimate we were given at our consultation. Also, Dr. Daneshmand was out of town the day of or scheduled embryo transfer. He gave me the option of postponing one month (more costs for additional meds) or proceeding with his partner, Dr. Bruce Shapiro doing transfer. We let Shapiro do transfer and it was successful!
They [Fertility Center of Las Vegas] underestimated the total cost, even with high end of their initial quote for 2 egg retrieval. We ended up spending double what we anticipated. Not many long term financing options available that we qualified for and we paid entirely cash because our insurance didn't cover any fertility treatment....Great communication via phone and email and in person. Available and responsive to my questions.

Be prepared financially to spend more than is initially estimated.

Great bedside manner, personally called us himself with results, personally e-mailed responses to questions and concerns during IVF cycle
Describe the protocols Said Daneshmand used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Las Vegas and their degree of success.
IVF, 2 egg retrieval cycles, one frozen embryo transfer. Meds included Follistim, Menopur, HGH trigger shot, Estradiol, hormone patches, and others I can't recall. Transferred one 5 day blastocyst embryo and first transfer was successful!

Describe the costs associated with your care under Said Daneshmand at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
I can't remember specifics but total cost for 2 IVF egg retrieval cycles with donor sperm and one frozen embryo transfer were about $50,000
Describe Said Daneshmand's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
Dr. Daneshmand would only transfer 2 at a time and discussed success rates and risks. We planed to transfer 2 embryos, but on the day of the transfer, he was unavailable and his partner Dr. Shapiro did the actual transfer. He discussed risks of transferring 2 embryos and higher risk pregnancy and prematurity with multiples, so we opted to only transfer one embryo at the last. It worked and seems like we made the right decision for us.

I personally vetted numerous doctors and he has the best bed side manner of any doctor I interviewed. He [Dr. Daneshmand] knew my name and remembered me and was always caring, yet realistic about the treatment....Very open and honest. Given my age, honesty was a huge factor for me. He clearly explained the processes and showed a lot of compassion. I am still early on in treatment, but very impressed.
The clinic [Fertility Center of Las Vegas] itself is warm and inviting. It's not large and cold feeling. There are lots of people around and they are always smiling and say hi, even if they don't know me. Comfort is such a huge factor when you are undergoing this kind of very personal treatment and I felt very much at ease....I have only had a few preliminary tests and procedures. An ultrasound and blood work. Everything was normally priced within the range of other clinics offering the same services.

Again, I am still very early on in the process. But my age is the factor here and so we are basing treatment on that.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
I've been to the clinic a few times and they are so warm and nice. I have mostly just seen the physicians there, though. I have had little interaction with the nursing staff, but it has been positive.

Dr. D[aneshmand] was amazing. He really listened to us and remembered unrelated things we mentioned offhand. He did specific research for our case. He called us personally each time we did a cycle with results. He cried with us and cheered us on...knew who we were. He remembered us when we came back for round two several years later. He was very kind and compassionate. We felt very informed and that the treatment was changed to fit our needs.
The nurses [at The Fertility Center of Las Vegas] were always friendly and helpful. They always had a smile and asked if I needed anything...They did have a guarantee if the first cycle didn't work you could try a second cycle within 12 months for free and the drug costs...The office was very comfortable and relaxing. Everyone was very helpful. The office was very organized and free of distractions. They also returned calls promptly. Weakness, long waits at times for blood draws or appointments.

Describe the protocols Said Daneshmand used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Las Vegas and their degree of success.
Beyond the usual stuff, he suggested my hubby take a multi-vitamin with zinc to help with egg quality. He had just read a research article in a journal. The nurses would call me after each blood draw to tweak my protocol. It was different with each cycle, so I know they were tailoring it to my needs.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Said Daneshmand at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
At the time, IUI was about $3000 each time. IVF/ICSI was about $5000 for the retrieval and $5000 for the implantation. Cycle drugs were about $2000-$5000 depending on your needs. They did have a guarantee if the first cycle didn't work you could try a second cycle within 12 months for free and the drug costs.
Describe Said Daneshmand's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
He definitely weighed the egg quality with each transfer.

He [Dr. Daneshmand] is such a compassionate person and I felt like he was treating me as if I were having his children! He had such tenderness and care for every cycle and each individual embryo that was created, regardless of fragmentation.

Anytime I had questions he would answer to the extent I could understand the details.

After 2 natural miscarriages, we were put in a variety of protocols (mainly antagonist) for egg retrieval preparation. I was on Gonal F, Menopur, and various other medications through your journey for retrieval. I was on lupron for my FETs and birth control to regulate cycle timing.

Dr D [Daneshmand] I originally saw in Las Vegas when I froze my eggs as a single career women at 29. At 35 after 3 failed IVF’s I went to Dr D in Vegas and used my frozen eggs resulting in my 3year old son. We currently live in SC and I have traveled to San Diego to see Dr for 3 retrieval’s, 1 cancelled retrieval and 4 transfers and he has been beyond compassionate every step of the way ... I have very low AMH. All my cycles involved injections with clomid. Every cycle I had 100% fertilization rate and 80% made it to transfer
Everyone from the front desk, surgery center andin between has been beyond amazing. I have gotten to know all of them on personal levels and they genuinely care. They truly make this difficult journey a little easier with their compassion ... I am cash pay. They have provided a discount based off my trx plan ... My And Cindy [nurses] were/are like family to me and have been there every step of the way to help me on this journey

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
His [Dr. Said Daneshmand] care is so personal, he is truly always available to his patients and no question is too small. He realizes how difficult it is to go through this process and takes it upon himself to engage fully with his patients...thoroughly reviewed ALL of my fertility history and assured me we would be successful...has an expertise in the field that cannot be replicated.
[San Diego Fertility Center] Does not feel like a factory like other centers. Warm, welcoming vibe. The surgery center is right downstairs which is very convenient and feels easier to manage than if you had to go to a hospital. Care is very personalized...communication with patients makes it feel like you are part of a family, not just another statistic. You get the feeling that they actually CARE if you get pregnant, and that they are doing everythign to help you get there.
How was your experience with Said Daneshmand at San Diego Fertility Center?
Dr. D is a gift to the world of fertility treatments. I wish every women could see him!! As a physician myself, I know how challenging it can be to connect to patients and make them feel heard. Dr. D has an innate ability to connect to patients, and he has an expertise in the field that cannot be replicated. I went to the "top" doctor in NYC before seeing him, and had awful results. When I met Dr. D, thoroughly reviewed ALL of my fertility history and assured me we would be successful. And he was right. I owe him so much!!!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Said Daneshmand at San Diego Fertility Center?
Go to him earlier rather than later!! Dont waste time at other clinics.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Said Daneshmand at San Diego Fertility Center?
After undergoing 3 unsuccessful cycles at Cornell in NYC, where I felt like I was being pushed through a factory system and rarely had contact with my doctor, Dr. D was a breath of fresh air!!! His care is so personal, he is truly always available to his patients and no question is too small. He realizes how difficult it is to go through this process and takes it upon himself to engage fully with his patients. His assistant, My, is equally as engaged and her communication with patients makes it feel like you are part of a family, not just another statistic. You get the feeling that they actually CARE if you get pregnant, and that they are doing everythign to help you get there.
Describe the protocols Said Daneshmand used in your cycles at San Diego Fertility Center and their degree of success.
IVF with gonal F, menopur, dexamethasone. retrieval, ICSI, frozen transfer, no PGTA.

Dr Daneshmand was always there for us. He answered every question and never let us down. When we had to create new embryos, he renounced to his money in order to help us. Even now we are still in contact and we send him pictures sometimes. We will probably start a sibling journey with him. No hesitation...He was supportive to transfer one or two embryos...
SDFC's team is very friendly and lot of people there want to help you...Our coordinator did never show compassion and was totaly cold...Once we were waiting for blood results on friday. She just wrote us that there was a problem with our results and that they maybe couldnt use our sperm. And then she left on week-end for 3 days...The other nurses helped us and answered our questions...

Describe the specific things that went wrong at San Diego Fertility Center.
The cycle coordinator Dori took always lot of time to inform us. Once we were waiting for blood results on friday. She just wrote us that there was a problem with our results and that they maybe couldnt use our sperm. And then she left on week-end for 3 days. We had to send emails to other people from the clinic to know what was happening.
