09/04/13 5 5 5 5 Wanted to recommend Dr. Kolb for his professionalism, kindness and knowledge. We really felt taken care of and supported there and could always call with questions/ concerns. I completely trusted his knowledge and felt that his staff was equally amazing. Thank you to his nurse coordinator Natalie who was beyond kind and supportive. She really ended up feeling like a friend to us. If anyone is looking for a great fertility Dr. I would highly recommend Dr. Kolb and his staff.  Respond

13/12/12 5 4 5 5 Wonderful experience with Dr. Kolb and HRC. Successful results for us. Great bedside manner. I had HMO insurance. Dr. Kolb is only contracted with Lakeside Medical Group and it is difficult dealing with them and finding a primary care physician in the Pasadena area. It would be better if they contracted with Healthcare Partners for me.

29/09/12 5 5 5 5 My husband and I felt fortunate to have found Dr. Bradford Kolb. We have consulted many infertility doctors before deciding to work with Dr. Kolb. This turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. Dr. Kolb is not only very knowledgeable and experienced, he is a doctor with professional integrity. He has always treated me with honesty; answered our questions thoroughly; helped us save money whenever he could without compromising the treatment. I can always reach him through his cell phone, even in some weekends, which made me feel being taken care of. Dr. Kolb’s staff were equally attentive and prompt. I especially want to thank Natalie, who was always there for me when I have questions. I will definitely recommend Dr. Kolb and his team to anyone looking for tentative, yet professional and honest fertility doctor!  Respond

24/09/12 5 5 5 5 Our hope had completely shattered after 13 miscarriages in the past 14 years, until we found Dr. Bradford Kolb. He is a knowledgeable, experienced, professional, compassionate doctor, who genuinely cares and thoroughly understands about our traumatic experiences. My husband and I felt extremely fortunate to have found Dr. Kolb. Our surrogate is now almost 13 weeks pregnant. We observed that Dr. Kolb is very cautious, yet entirely confident in his work. We are grateful to Dr. Kolb and his services, beyond words. Also, we want to especially express our thanks to Kristy, who has always been there to promptly answer any of our questions with precision. Her instructions are always succinct and easily understood. We highly recommend Dr. Kolb and his staff to anyone who is looking for a 'miracle'. Dr. Kolb, please accept our gratitude and deep appreciation. You are a miracle doctor, for our baby is surely a blessing, being touched by science.  Respond

23/08/12 5 5 5 5 My husband and I felt fortunate to have found Dr. Bradford Kolb. We have consulted many infertility doctors in LA areas (USC, UCLA, Beverly Hills) before deciding to work with Dr. Kolb. This turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. Dr. Kolb is very knowledgeable, experienced, and with professional integrity. He also answered our questions thoroughly. He specifically designed procedures that he thought would work for us and explained his strategy to us before we moved forward. Dr. Kolb has been always available for us, even on weekends. Dr. Kolb’s staff were equally attentive and prompt. I especially want to thank Natalie, who was always there for me when I have questions. I am now 14 weeks pregnant! Although I am now mainly working with my OBGY doctor, I can still reach Dr. Kolb and his team whenever I have any questions. I will definitely recommend Dr. Kolb and his team to anyone looking for tentative, yet professional and honest fertility doctor!  Respond

19/05/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kolb has given us the very best and most attentive care one could hope for. My husband and I are absolutely thrilled with how peaceful, safe and cared for we felt in Dr. Kolb's care. We went to Dr. Kolb after 6 unsuccessful treatments at SCRC. In his initial visit, he spent 1 1/2 hours talking to us and giving us advice about doing an IVF. My husband and I felt really good about his knowledge, manners, and the trust he instilled in us, so we transferred to his clinic and proceeded doing our first IVF cycle. Dr. Kolb himself did ALL of the ultrasounds. After each u/s, he answered all our questions. He never once made us feel like he was in a rush. This has brought me a lot of peace and trust in the process. His nurses were equally attentive and prompt. The IVF was successful and we are now 20 weeks pregnant!! I highly recommend Dr. Kolb and his team to anyone looking for a caring, attentive yet experienced and professional fertility doctor.  Respond

30/04/12 5 5 5 5 When we first arrived at HRC, we were skeptical of doing another IVF, as we had already 4 unsuccessful treatments with 2 different doctors. Both of those doctors were recommending going with egg donors. We wanted one more opinion. To our surprise Dr. Kolb gave us a different perspective. He reviewed all the medical records and he offered us to try another IVF. He changed the meds and dosages. Very different approach. We are so thankful to have found Dr. Kolb. He is so passionate about what he does, caring, has a great bedside manner and most importantly he is very knowledgeable and experienced. He gave us hope and confidence. We fully trusted him during the treatment cycle. We are so excited now that after our first try with him we got pregnant and will soon have a baby. Dr. Kolb and his staff are so courteous, professional and make you feel at ease in their clinic. It’s a big difference between getting care at HRC than the other 2 clinics I have been to.  Respond

04/04/12 5 4 5 5 Dr Kolb and his staff were amazing! This was obviously a VERY difficult journey for my husband and I, and Dr Kolb, along with everyone at HRC, really helped us get through this! We tried many different things, and when one thing didn't work, Dr Kolb seemed even more determined to make it happen the next time! He switched things up didn't just do the usual "cookie cutter" procedures that are done for everyone. He made it personal and catered to what he thought would work specifically for us. And after a VERY long struggle in trying to get pregnant, my husband and I finally got the long awaited results we were hoping for! I am now just about 12 weeks pregnant and we couldn't be happier! I definitely recommend Dr Bradford Kolb!  Respond

15/08/11 4 5 5 5 Dr. Kolb is amazing. After two IUI's with another doctor, I switched to Dr. Kolb. He actually spent about an hour on the phone with me before my first consultation. He has always treated me with total honesty and compassion. He takes the time to answer questions thoroughly, I have never felt rushed. I would highly recommend him to any woman on this journey. Oh and I am PG on my second IVF w/donor eggs!!  Respond

10/05/11 5 5 5 5 Beyond helpful and compassionate. After not being treated very well at our first fertility doctor we came to Dr. Kolb and absolutely fell in love with him and his staff. Due to my husband's unique condition we went into IVF planning on doing at least 3 cycles...happy to report we are 7 months pregnant with twin girls from our very 1st cycle. Beautiful office, caring staff, great doctor.  Respond

05/11/09 5 5 5 5 A truly wonderful and amazing person. Dr. Kolb deserves praise both as a compassionate person, but as a superb physician. Both Dr. Kolb and his staff at HRC Fertility took time to get to know us and our needs. They did not waste our time or money on needless tests or treatment like several of the other fertility clinics that we visited. The facility is beautiful and soothing. Dr. Kolb incorporated the assistance of a super kind acupuncturist. She helped to keep us focuses and relieved our stress. Our treatment plan was clearly designed to meet our needs was not a cookie-cutter plan. Doctor Kolb's nurse Marie was always on top of our treatment and very punctual. We will always be very grateful to Dr. Kolb and his team at HRC Fertility for all the wonderful things they do, for helping bring our dreams to life and for just being who they are. I only wish our other health care providers where so special.  Respond
