Dr. Castlebaum is the best. He was so open to discussions on every concern I had and I felt that he truly cared about me and my wish to be a mom again. I was anxious, stressed, and overwhelmed about the fact that I was not getting pregnant. Over and over he reassured me that it would happen...and it did! He is simply the best!

Dr Castelbaum and the team at RMA are amazing! They are all very nice, understanding, helpful, and informative. Dr. Castelbaum is always available and always responds to my questions/concerns/excitement immediately; he does a wonderful job at making you feel like you're his only patient. The one on one care is unlike anything else, I know he and his team are always trying to do what is best for me and my family. I feel incredibly comfortable and well cared for with RMA and would (and have) highly recommend RMA/Dr, Castelbaum. I can never thank Dr. Castelbaum and his team for the positive impact they have had on my family.

Dr. Castelbaum and his team are the best. He is very knowledgeable and we trusted him completely through the process. I felt special each time I walked into the office and knew Dr. Castelbaum and his team truly cared about our success, we weren't just another patient. Dr. Castelbaum is very fair and honest and is with you through the process. Thanks to the RMA team we have a successful pregnancy and can never thank the team enough!

Dr. Castelbaum and his team are wonderful. He has supported me through two pregnancy journeys. Throughout both processes he consistently was kind, empathetic, patient, and level headed. The hardest part of the journey is transitioning out of his practice to the normal OB practice. Seriously, he is the perfect person for his role and I can't imagine trusting anyone else to go through the infertility journey with. He is a partner in the process and considers your perspective, opinion, and preference. He didn't force me to go down a specific path and was flexible where possible with me on decisions we made. I trust him and his judgment 100%. He is by far the best Doctor I have ever had and has been able to help my husband and I have two successful pregnancies. I am forever grateful.

Dr. Casselbaum and the entire staff at RMA are nothing short of amazing! After almost two years of trying to conceive, Dr. Casselbaum was able to diagnose us right away. We have had a positive experience with every person we've dealt with at RMA, and I'm even sad now that it is time to move onto my regular ob. Thanks to everyone at RMA my husband and I will be welcoming our first baby in a few months!! We look forward to working with them again when we expand our family.

A HUGE thank you to Dr. Castlebaum and his amazing staff/team, as we welcomed our second RMA baby this May. Our experience there has been an awesome journey and one for which our lives will be forever changed. Having had trouble conceiving for over a year, we turned to RMA for answers and a glimmer of hope, well we got that and then some. Blessed with a gorgeous baby boy two years ago and then another beautiful boy three months ago to complete our family. While our lives are a little more hectic, our pockets less full, and our home a bit messier, our hearts are so full! Thank you, thank you! We love RMA!
