18/01/14 5 5 5 5 Dr Boostanfar was the third fertility Dr I consulted with and he was the best choice for me. He has excellent, friendly and down to earth bedside manner, his office staff were always attentive and professional and Dr. Boostanfar made the experience of first time IVF much more pleasant than I could have imagined. My husband and I are now expecting our first child and we will be first time parents in our 40s. We chose the donor route to lessen our risks of genetic issues and it was a wonderful choice as it resulted in a pregnancy the first try and so far everything progressing well at week 13. We are very grateful to have found such a knowledgeable, confident Dr and I have only positive things to say about him and HRC as a whole.

16/01/14 5 5 5 5 Words cannot begin to describe how happy my husband and I have been with HRC Encino & Dr. Boostenfar!! Dr. Boostenfar is such an incredibly physician. He is direct & to the point, he is incredibly knowledgeable & can answer any question you ask, but he is warm & friendly - He always greeted us with a smile, me with a hug and my husband a handshake. You can tell that he loves what he does, and is invested in your success. There is not one single part of us that ever questioned his judgement, nor his motives (i.e. having you come back & spend more money, etc). For my husband and I, it was also important that we found someone that had a great personality - we enjoy making light-hearted jokes in this stressful situation, and Dr. B was always a fun sport with us. I never wanted to "graduate" from his care, although so thrilled that we did... I wish Dr. B delivered babies, was a pediatrician, a general practitioner and everything in between so I could only see him!!  Respond

15/03/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Boostanfar is an outstanding physician. He's compassionate, talented and highly skilled. We were impressed with all aspects of his care and HRC staff throughout the process. He was thorough and very competent. As a person with experience with other physicians in this field, including an expensive SCRC in Beverly Hills, Dr. Boostanfar would absolutely be my top choice and recommended without any hesitation.

19/02/13 5 5 5 5 Dr Boostanfar is the most amazing doctor I've ever met. He is genuine and compassionate and extremely positive. He just makes you feel great through the entire process. The encino office is modern, warm and inviting. There is practically no wait. The entire staff makes you feel welcome and comfortable. I looked forward to every appointment. I was diagnosed with PCOS by my regular OBGyn and when two cycles of clomid didn't work I decided to try Dr B after numerous success stories from those close to me. Dr B was very creative in his methods. He first did a surgical procedure to correct the shape of my uterus and then tried various combinations of clomid and injectables with no success. He then prescribed a cycle of Femara and I got pregnant on the first shot!!! My miracle baby boy is 6 weeks old and is as perfect as can be! I am eternally grateful to Dr B and will recommend him to anyone with fertility problems.  Respond

13/08/12 5 5 5 5 I love Dr. B and the rest of his amazing staff. I have never been more comfortable. They helped take the stress out of our situation and I couldn't recommend them more. Dr. B made us feel comfortable with his knowledge and we never doubted the ability of him or his staff. The staff is very caring and definitely makes you feel comfortable. Couldn't imagine using anyone else.  Respond

07/07/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Boostanfar is an amazing and brilliant doctor! Not only did he have the best bedside manners but he genuinely cared about what I was going through and gave my husband and I encouragement and support throughout our process. He found and fixed one of my issues causing me to miscarry. Dr. B explained every step of the procedure ahead of time and was very knowledgeable. The staff at HRC are also incredible and empathetic as well as encouraging. Every one always had a smile and were ready to help. The office is clean and modern and very comfortable. It took about 3 months of hormones and timed intercourse before I was pregnant with my first child. Just before his first birthday we went back to Dr. B and went through IVF and after the first round I was pregnant! Now we have our second miracle (another boy)! We can't thank Dr. B, Wendy and everyone else enough for the joy they helped bring into our lives.

09/04/12 5 5 5 5 We were referred to Dr. B at HRC after working with 3 other fertility specialists, and couldn't be more pleased with the entire experience. Every experience in his office was fabulous, and we were commuting from Orange County to Encino. Dr. B is warm, really cares about his patients, is knowledgable, takes time to answer questions --so it made it well-worth the drive. Dr. B's facility is first class with the latest technology for embryology. Our first transfer didn't work, so Dr. B ordered a special test from Yale to test my uterine lining's receptivity. Turned out, there was a problem, but fortunately it was treatable. I'm now 20+ weeks pregnant with twins (1 boy & 1 girl) and couldn't be more thrilled! Had we worked with Dr. B earlier, we may have diagnosed the problem sooner. It was also a plus that there was hardly ever a wait in his office. We also enjoyed the Laguna Niguel location when just ultrasound was needed. LOVED their nursing staff! Overall first-class experience!  Respond

20/03/12 5 5 5 5 Dr B We can't say enough positive things about Dr Boostanfar and his staff at HRC Encino.  It is a given that he is medically skilled to handle the procedures involved with infertility. But thats the tip of the iceberg. He shows unconditional support and warmth and is absolutely part of the infertility roller coaster that the patient is on. Our journey was well over two years and he never gave up on us, and always did whatever he could to soothe our fears and help us reach our dreams. Dr B was and continues to be a support for us and we will never forget all the love, strength, resolve and genuine concern he showed. We absolutely recommend Dr B!

21/09/11 4 5 5 5 Pros: Excellent bedside manner, positive attitude, explains procedures thoroughly, highly respectful, and listens to your concerns. Though young, he is highly capable and experienced. Con:: If seeking IVF without use of ovulation inhibiting meds, may take a few months to coordinate your calendars.  Respond

10/01/11 4 5 5 5 Dr. Boostanfar is a great doctor, I tried 3 IVFs with him and did not get pregnant. He had a great communication style and took his time with me to explain everything - I never felt rushed. I was more disappointed in the quality of the clinics's embryology lab. Having now cycled at Cornell and CCRM and found success, I think Dr. B is a great doctor but the short-comings were mostly from the embryology lab. His staff is also great, I had no problem is getting good or bad news from nurses, that is typical in this field.

22/12/10 5 4 2 4 My experience with Dr. Boostanfar started off on a positive note and ended quite negatively. As my treatment progressed, I found him to rush me out of appointments. He had his nursing staff call me with bad news and did not return my subsequent telephone call. In hindsight, I wish I had been offered the opportunity to meet with the embryologist at HRC to discuss the quality of my embryos prior to transfer. I recognize that not all IVF attempts will work, however, I expected my bad news to be accompanied by respect and compassion.  Respond
