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.... 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.

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?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions or ask him to slow down a little bit.
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.
Describe Sam Najmabadi's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.
We have not moved forward yet with IVF.

I appreciate that Dr. Naj [Dr Sam Najmabadi] tells it like it is. I also feel he doesn't over-tell. I have friends undergoing treatment who ask me things about levels and numbers and certain hormones that I have no idea what they're talking about....and for me, I like that. When my second IVF didn't take, I felt like Dr. Naj almost took it harder than I did! He is invested in what he does.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?
There are times I felt like I was being brushed off as emotional. It a was brief, but I felt it.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?
Dr. Naj and all of the staff seem to take extra care to make me feel human, important, valued, and not alone. They always know who I am when calling, when I come in, they know exactly what stage I'm at.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
There are times when I don't feel the communication is at its best. Once I had to double check instructions that were given because I was pretty sure the dosage was wrong - and it was. That could have been a big problem. However, I mentioned it to the doctor, and I don't ever remember seeing that nurse again. Other than that, I have loved the nurses. They feel with me - good and bad. I don't ever feel like I am annoying them or asking too many questions.
Describe your experience with Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.
It's small. Some people prefer more doctors and more going on, this feels very boutique. I don't love Yolanda in administration. She has said frustrating and ignorant things, like asking me where my other baby is when I came in for one of my transfers. I don't have a baby.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.
IUIs started at $1000 before meds, and increased as meds increased. IVF started at $8900 and then meds, plus ICSI, plus storage fees added up.

I had to have high dosages of all of the drugs as I wasn't reacting. My egg quality was poor, but [Dr Najmabadi] respected my need to pursue alternative medicine before I was ready for egg donation. He recommended people to help me, and I ultimately came back to proceed with him.

The nurses are very friendly and competant, the facility is a nice, calming environment. dr Naj is fantastic. He doesnt coddle, and tells it like it is, but showed a strong respect for my need to understand everything technically. He spent all the time we wanted explaining every step and every decision we needed to make. Something I found as a rarity amongst other doctors.

Dr Najmabadi was great - had a sense of humor that relaxed me during the many conversations and ultrasounds. He is clearly a busy man, but would be patient as I asked more questions and tried to understand certain things...He was great, and the nurses [at CRHG] were amazing. They even video chatted with me as I was having trouble with the shots!...There was only one hitch where I had to go two extra days and they didn't have the medicine on hand but otherwise were on top of it and treated me with compassion.
