Dr. Castelbaum is wonderful in every way possible! I started out with a different doctor who I saw for about 5 cycles before I had the pleasure of becoming Dr. Castelbaum's patient. It happened in a little bit of a stressful way but Dr. Castelbaum was incredibly kind, caring, and welcoming. We had previously had 3 failed IUI's and he performed our 4th. After the procedure he was very honest with me about our chances of success and what he thought our best course of action was which I greatly appreciated. We were incredibly lucky in that our 4th was successful! I continued to see Dr. Castelbaum for the next 5 weeks and each time I became sadder that I would have to leave! He is funny, caring, and very knowledgeable. He runs an amazing practice--I would recommend RMA to anyone who was looking. If I could I would stay with him through the end! Thank you Dr. Castelbaum for everything---we can't wait to come back in 7 months with our little peanut!!

Dr. Castelbaum and his entire staff at RMA were wonderful! Infertility is such a difficult journey. Dr Castelbaum and everyone at RMA were very positive, caring, honest, and supportive throughout the whole process. They keep you very informed and are clearly experts in their field. My husband and I were very happy with the care we received. Because of Dr. Castelbaum and his staff, we just gave birth to a healthy baby boy in April and are very grateful to them. We highly recommend Dr Castelbaum and RMA.

Dr. Castelbaum is amazing and so are the other doctors that work at RMA! The staff are awesome and were so helpful. I love that he explained everything to us and made sure we fully understood everything. I was able to get pregnant with IUI #2 after a few years of trying and I owe everything to him. I am now 23 weeks along and I still miss going to RMA! The staff and offices are just so relaxing and I always felt welcome. When we had our first ultrasound, he was just as excited as we were. When we "graduated" I could feel the tears coming the whole time. You start to build a bond with the doctors and staff because of how amazing they are and they ALL really care about you. I have already recommended Dr. Castelbaum to a few couples I know that have been trying. I know he will take care of them, just like he did with us. RMA is the best! I couldn't thank them enough!

Dr. Castelbaum is the most helpful, caring, and down-to-earth doctor I've ever met...and since I work with doctors, I've met my fair share! He's genuinely a great guy. After just one visit I knew that I made the right call going to RMA. We'd begun testing that day and made a plan that I'm really happy with. I had 2 women refer Dr. Castelbaum to me, and I'm SO glad I listened. I wish I'd seen him sooner! Even if you haven't been trying for a full year yet, go. Get tested. Make a plan. He doesn't force you to wait. He understands that we all want to start/add to our families asap! RMA is incredible!

Dr. Castelbaum, is so far superior to every doctor I've ever dealt with in the fertility field. Having been through fertility on and off for almost 8 years, at three major PA/NJ hospitals, I just wish I found him sooner. He is such a genuinely kind person, I came to him through my sister who is a patient of his, and he did not have to accommodate me at all, yet at his insistence he had me in the next day. The experience I had with him was literally life-changing and I will never forget the kindness, enthusiasm and encouragement he extended. He is realistic without instilling any fear or anxiety. I am forever grateful for Dr. Castelbaum and his AMAZING staff. I cannot recommend him more highly. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Dr. Castelbaum and RMA.

All of the doctors at RMA Philadelphia are very experienced and are clearly experts at what they do. I highly recommend working with Dr. Castlebaum. He is very positive, patient, realistic and caring. He is very responsive to emails if you have questions or concerns which was a major factor in my choosing this infertility practice.

Dr. Castelbaum and his staff are the best. I did two cycles of IVF through RMA Philadelphia and the nurses and staff are so nice and nurturing. While IVF didnt work for me, Dr. Castelbaum is probably the nicest doctor I have ever dealt with. From bedside manner, to knowledge, personality, etc. Hands down the best.

We couldn't be happier with our experience at RMA. Dr. Castlebaum and the staff of RMA were just outstanding. We are so very grateful to be expecting our first child in November and can't thank Dr. Castlebaum and his staff enough for all of their encouragement, guidance, and support. You made our dreams come true and we are so appreciative.

I have had 3 IVF cycles with Dr. Castlebaum. I continued to go back each time because of the outstanding service I received from his staff and the professionally personal interaction from Dr. Castlebaum. He has been amazing. This experience is usually a tough one, but the staff, and everyone made it so easy and wonderful!! I love you all!! Thank you!!!
