Dr. Arthur J. Castelbaum's Ratings
I would definitely recommend Dr. Castelbaum and the staff at RMA. From our first appointment onward, we always had all the information we needed to make an informed decision about our procedures. He was always extremely respectful and compassionate to my needs. He understood the high level of anxiety of infertility patients and always came across as encouraging and optimistic. I am not the most optimistic person and he made me feel so reassured every time. I ended up having surgery to resolve one of the primary reasons for my infertility and I was very happy with the results and the attention to me as a patient by Dr. Castelbaum. After several failed IUIs, my husband and I decided to do IVF, after one round we achieved our goal. Dr. Castelbaum was so involved and happy for us, that he was the one to actually call and tell me that I was pregnant. I would recommend Dr. Castelbaum and RMA to anyone with infertility issues, we couldn't be happier with our experience and the practice overall.
I would highly recommend Dr. Castelbaum and RMA for anyone seeking to learn more about their fertility options. The entire staff at each of the RMA offices was extremely helpful with scheduling appointments, performing and reviewing lab work, medication treatments, and answering all questions. My husband and I were referred to Castelbaum by my OBGYN (whom she had also used for infertility) for unexplained infertility. I was immediately diagnosed with severe endometriosis, we discussed options and developed a plan. A failed IUI led to an IVF cycle. I received personal care and attention from Castelbaum (phone calls and exams) after discomfort from my egg retrieval, which eased my worries. Our IVF cycle was successful and we plan on returning for our future kiddos. I’m a bit sad to leave RMA for my OB, but also happy to know it’s because we were successful.
I went to see Dr.Castlebaum after having two miscarriages. I did two unsuccessful IUI (first one didn't result in a pregnancy and second one resulted in a miscarriage) and one unsuccessful IVF. Dr. Castlebaum does have good bedside manners, but it seems like he was always in a rush to leave after exam. I was not confident with my fertility plan. Dr. Castlebaum did not know or could not explain why I was having fertility problems. Dr. Castlebaum is not very compassionate. After my failed IVF I did not get a call from him. Just got a sorry call from his nurse. My husband did call him to discuss what the next step should be. Dr. Castlebaum suggested egg donor. I feel he cares more about getting good results then his patients. I do not recommend Dr. Castlebaum!
Dr. Castelbaum and his entire staff are amazing! They show so much compassion. I was able to send a quick e-mail to the doctor when I had a question, and he would reply, usually within minutes. They make you feel very comfortable at all appointments. You never have long waits. They are very thorough with all instructions for medications and procedures. I would recommend this practice to anyone with infertility issues.
Dr. Castlebaum and the doctors and staff of RMA were wonderful. My husband and I had issues with unexplained infertility for months. We met with Dr. Castlebaum to discuss our plan and we were pregnant after our first attempt. Dr. Castelbaum had a wonderful bedside manner and make a very emotional experience seamless and pleasant. There was always someone available to answer my questions and I was able to receive my blood work results the same day. The office hours were very convenient. Overall my experience with RMA was great and I would recommend them to anyone.
When we first walked into Dr. Castelbaum's office, my husband and I didn't know what to expect. We'd been trying to get pregnant for several months and were nervous that there was a problem. Castelbaum, from Day 1, was reassuring, confident, and knowledgeable about our situation and immediately got us going on a plan. After only two months (and only one cycle of artificial insemination), I got a positive pregnancy test!
Today I am eight weeks pregnant and this was our last appointment before switching to an OB, and I literally cried before we left. I will really miss Castelbaum's calm and humorous personality, his ability to really listen to you, take you seriously, and respond accordingly. He answered every one of my 10,000 questions at each visit, never acting like I was crazy or annoying. I will really miss the staff there - from the smiling woman who greets us at the front desk to the one who draws your blood, they are the most sincere, comforting, genuine people I have ever encountered at a doctor's office. The whole office makes you feel like NOT just another patient - but someone who matters, someone they want to see succeed. Not to mention, they are SO quick and efficient! I barely have a chance to sit down in the waiting room before they're ready for me, and they called me with results like clockwork after each visit.
It was bittersweet leaving today - knowing we were successful meant not seeing these people anymore! Anyone who is experiencing difficulty while trying to have a baby - do yourself a favor and see Castelbaum and his staff. We already know that when it's time to try for Baby #2, that's the first place we're going.
After two years of trying and one miscarriage, my husband and I decided to seek help. My FSH level came back extremely high (31). Initially insurance denied me fertility assistance. I was devastated. Dr. Castlebaum was very calm and their staff helped me get my insurance to approve another test to make sure my tubes were clear. That test came back with good results and Dr. Castlebaum had me wait another month to see if my FSH numbers lowered. Next, I started acupuncture, working out, got lots of sleep and ate an extremely healthy diet. My next test for my FSH numbers went down to a 13. The RMA staff called my insurance company and pleaded my case. They got me approved for treatment! I took a vacation out of the country, so we did the IUI treatment the following month. My FSH went down to an 8 and Dr. Castlebaum was successful with the IUI- first try! I couldn't be more thankful to Dr Castelbaum and his staff! They send your results the same day and reply to emails immediately!
I couldn't be happier with RMA, particularly Dr. Castlebaum. I was successful in getting pregnant twice, both times via the first IUI. Dr. Castlebaum made me feel comfortable with the fertility plan he identified for me and his confidence, friendliness and humor made my husband and I very relaxed. He took the time to listen to my questions and always had a great answer/advice for me. I would recommend him to any woman suffering from infertility as without him I would not have my daughter and my second child on the way. I would also like to commend the office staff. They are always polite and friendly. They make you feel like more of a friend than just another patient, they truly go out of their way to make a connection. They were also very prompt with follow up phone calls and always took the time to answer questions, I never felt rushed off the phone. If I decide to go for a third I would 100% being go back to RMA/Dr. Castlebaum! :)
I had an overall great experience with Dr. Castlebaum and RMA of Philadelphia. Office staff was excellent. Got me in and out of my appointments quickly, but I never felt rushed. Called with blood work results the same day and answered all my questions. Worked with my work schedule for my convenience. Dr. Castlebaum was very straight forward with his approach to my treatment plan. I came in with unexplained infertility. First plan was 3 rounds of Clomid with IUI. When the first round of Clomid didn't work, he moved on to another drug instead of wasting time with Clomid. When the next 2 rounds of IUI didn't work, Dr. Castlebaum called me to sit down and meet with him. He wanted to be more aggressive, and given my insurance coverage, I also didn't want to waste any time or money. We went straight to IVF. My husband and I are expecting our first child this fall. Dr. Castlebaum continued to follow me for 9 weeks, to make sure everything was good with the pregnancy.
