The communication is not that great [at University Fertility Center] between the dr [Dr. Khorram] and the embryologist and nurses. One strength is that dr k does everything on his own...The cost of an ivf cycle was around 7,500 and a frozen transfer was 2,200...The [nursing] girls will ask you to call the doctor yourself instead of relaying questions or information...Did not get the results of my beta until after 10pm and it was done by email...

The cost [at University Fertility Center] is very reasonable compared to other clinics in Los Angeles area. That is a huge plus. There is a bit of wait time. We had to wait almost an hour for our appointment. I would wait again because I was very satisfied with the appointment the treatment plan and the cost most of all. I appreciate that this doctor does what he can to try to keep cost low for his patients. He truly has passion for what he does.
