Dr. Castelbaum is wonderful to work with, as he provides an honest assessment and discusses all available options with you. He then gives you plenty of time to think through things after the appt. without any pressure to act one way or another. He's great.

Dr. Castelbaum was wonderful during our consultation appointment. He made us feel at ease and was very reassuring about the process. We are looking forward to working with him the rest of our IVF journey.

Dr. Castelbaum has been amazing through every step of this process. Thankfully, my results were very positive, but I'm sure he would be caring in a less than positive situation as well. He was thorough, caring, and clear about each step. I was nervous about some of the more invasive procedures. He walked me through everything to help ease my nervousness. I would highly recommend that anyone seeking fertility counseling should see him.

I would highly recommend Dr. Castelbaum and his staff to anyone looking for infertility care. They always made my husband and I feel comfortable and were incredibly professional and knowledgeable.

I came to Doctor Castelbaum via a friend's recommendation after 2 failed transfers and a chemical pregnancy at a separate fertility doctor. I had to move my fertilized eggs along with my trust to a new set of faces. That was one of the best decisions I have ever made, as I am pregnant with my first baby. You want to hug the staff when you leave. I never thought that I would be sad to be finished the visits, but it was very bittersweet. Dr. Castelbaum is a very compassionate straight-shooter with a sense of humor to balance out the anxiety. He's the best.

My husband and I had difficulty conceiving and based on all of the reviews, we ended up going with Dr. Castelbaum and I'm so grateful we did. After two attempts of IUI, we gave fertility treatment a break and actually conceived on our own. Dr. Castelbaum still monitored my pregnancy from weeks 5-9, rather than wait for my first OB visit at week 8. Staying with RMA for the first four weeks quelled so many of my fears and anxieties. I wish I could stay with RMA for all of my OB care, thank you!

I have had two ectopic pregnancies and lost both of my Fallopian tubes. I have been very emotional through this entire process. Dr. Castelbaum is the 3rd fertility doctor my husband and I have met. He was very honest and extremely caring. He explained things to my husband and I we didn’t know that no other fertility doctor told us. I look forward to this new journey with my husband. We can’t wait to get started.
