How was your experience with Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?
He is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced in his field. He takes the time to exain and answer questions. I will say that at times he speaks fast and doesn’t use laymen’s terms which could be intimidating for someone who is completely knew to the entire process. But I do feel we are in capable hands and not under someone who just wants our money.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?
Dr. Najmabadi is very respectful and compassionate. The first meeting felt a little brusk, but as we got to know him we felt more comfortable with him. His staff members are awesome at making you feel comfortable and at ease.
Describe the protocols Sam Najmabadi used in your cycles at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology and their degree of success.
I started with him mid-cycle while doing letrozole from my OB. We did another medicated and monitored cycle with a trigger shot and timed intercourse. That cycled ended in a chemical pregnancy. During that cycle he realized my lining was thin and appeared thinner because of the medication. We then moved on to IUIs with gonal f. I don’t remember the dosage of them, but the first 2 were the same and we increased the dose with the 3rd. All were negative. Also between the first and second IUI I had a cyst that we had to wait to go away. He started with the method of seeing if my body got rid of it on its own rather than birth control or removal (it did thankfully). We are at this point waiting to move forward with IVF (not due to his waiting but rather from our end).
Describe your experience with your nurse at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology. (Assigned nurse: Spencer the ultrasound technician and Selene )
Spencer is amazing. She makes you feel at ease and always makes sure to say hi when you are there even if you are not seeing her that day. Selene is also great and compassionate. She is awesome at exposing everything and will answer your repeat questions many times. She is also very gentle with taking blood.
Describe your experience with Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.
The clinic is clean, bright and energetic. Parking is underneath the building. They take card. It can add up a bit, but depending on the time of the day you can’t park on the street. The main entrance is off the street and not from the lobby when you enter the building from the parking lot.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.
I cannot remember the cost of the medicated cycles (no IUI). The costs of the IUIs were between $2500-$3000 depending on the medications. They have medications onsite which makes it easier. The progesterone tabs are about $60 for 20 I think. The IVF is about $11,000 not including medications.
