Choosing Dr. Moghadam as my IVF treatment doctor is the best decision ever.
Let me share my story with you. I did my first IVF treatment in another clinic 2 years ago. I had three blastocysts at the end and the doctor transferred all of them at once for the success rate. I was pregnant with twins but lost them due to the incompetent cervix at 23 weeks. Because I did not have any frozen embryos left, I had to start another round of IVF again.

After some research with my husband, we decided to give AFI a shot. At our first consulting with Dr. M, I really built my confidence for my next pregnancy. Dr. M is very patient and knowledgeable and does not rush us to make any decision. I am a PCOS patient with complex medical history. Dr. M made a special protocol just for my case. At the beginning of the treatment, my body could not respond to the stimulus medicine very well. I thought I had to cancel this cycle. But Dr. M did not give up. He kept a close eye on me every the other day to adjust the dose. Finally, all the eggs grew up. The rest of treatment process went very well. And due to Dr. M’s excellent skills, all of the 23 eggs were retrieved.

Dr. Chen in the lab was very knowledgeable as well. He explained a lot of technical terms to us when we called and told us how each embryo developed. Eventually we had 13 out of 23 became blasted at day 5.

When we discussed with Dr. M how many embryos to be transferred, I thought two of them might be safe to have more successful rate. But Dr. M insisted only one should be transferred due to my previous medical history. He would rather sacrifice his clinic success rate instead of letting me to take any risk of having another twin pregnancy. I really appreciate his decision and it turns out to be a good one since I was pregnant even with single embryo transfer. He cares about patient health more than the success rate.

All the staff in the clinic were very kind and helpful as well. Especially Lisa, who is the most patient and responsible nurse I have ever met. Every time she returned my call within half an hour after I left my message. And she will also call me and ask for my conditions from time to time even I do not schedule anything. Becky, Jamie and Jessica are all very sweet. You will feel like to be friends with them instead of patient.

I am now 11 weeks of pregnant. So I have to graduate from Dr. M and to be released to my OB. I hate leaving this wonderful clinic. If Dr. M can deliver baby, I will definitely choose him to be my OB.

Just saying thank you can not express our gratitude to Dr. M and all his staff. We will go back when we are ready for our next baby since we still have 12 embryos being taken care of very well in the lab. We really appreciate Dr. M to fulfil our dream. We could not be parents without his help. He made this tough journey to be much easier and joyful. Choosing him will be the best decision and he will never let you down.

I was referred to Dr. M after almost 2 years of trying to get pregnant and several unsuccessful IUIs with my OB/GYN. As a health care professional in my mid-thirties with no children yet, it would not be far-fetched to say that I knew enough about my odds/timeline to feel desperate if not hopeless about getting pregnant. First and foremost, Dr. M is a good if not great listener--I found this to be impressive given the number of patients he sees on a daily basis. Once he understands your goals, he is exceptional at outlining a handwritten (yes, in writing you can read) plan that leaves you with choices where available and simplifies your next steps.

My husband and I were ready to do IVF, but the timing made it easier to try one more IUI cycle and he felt optimistic about our odds with the change in my protocol. So, as the story goes, first cycle worked--I felt like I blinked and I am back with my OB well into my second trimester! I can tell you we had choices because there are other good doctors in town. All I can say is that if you want the best pairing of a caring, available and intelligent doctor, team (who are awesome, BTW!) you should go to AFI first. That's what I did, and I know I will if I need help again in a couple of years.

Dr. Moghadam is great! He and his staff are always patient, caring, thorough, and never left you feeling rushed. It was a pleasure to have him as our provider and will use him again in the future, if needed. Wait times can be long, at times, but the quality of service is definitely worth the wait.

My family's experience with Dr. Moghadam is nothing short of excellent. My OB referred us to him after trying for almost five years unsuccessfully to get pregnant. It is now three years later and we have grown from a family of two to five. He and his staff identified our infertility issue and and came up with a plan to overcome it. We also were informed of the odds for success and costs up front. We always felt like we knew where exactly we were in the process and if we didn't we could call him directly with any concerns. He is amazing and I would highly recommend him to anyone struggling with infertility.

I wish I could express how wonderful Dr. Moghadam and his staff are. They helped my husband and I conceive 2 years ago and now I'm a returning patient and expecting baby number two! Dr. Moghadam has always been patient, understanding, and compassionate. I saw two REs before going to see Dr. Moghadam and now I wouldn't go any where else. His personalized treatment plan was perfect for us and all the lab work was so much more convenient and less stressful. The staff members in the office, lab, and surgery center have always been so friendly, organized, and helpful.

Dr. Moghadam is an excellent RE. A friend recommended another RE in the Austin area, but Dr. M took my insurance so this is where I went. I am so happy that I did. He is knowledgeable, thorough, and personal. He makes sure you understand his recommendation for the next course of action, but also explains all your choices and leaves the decisions up to you. I appreciated that as this journey is very personal. One of the things I loved most about him is how he connected well with my left brained husband who was hesitant to approach a fertility doctor anyway.

Dr. M's staff is excellent and friendly. Considering how persona the fertility journey can be, I never felt like my privacy was compromised and all members of the staff were always wonderful. There are definitely times where I had to wait for appointments, often as the result of Dr. M getting caught in an emergency procedure or surgery. But when you're in the midst of fertility treatments and you're seeing the doc every other day, even a little wait can seem like a lot. The whole staff always did their best to move things along rapidly without compromising care. Just know that if you have an appt before noon you will likely have a wait. Be patient, Dr. M is worth it.

As a side note, we did conceive with the help of Dr. M. This review would have been written the same even if we hadn't.

After years of trying and no real diagnosis as to why we were not getting pregnant, my husband and I heard that Dr. Moghadam at the Austin Fertility Institute was the doctor to go to. I personally know 4 ladies who have conceived with Dr. M and they will all tell you that when you want to get the job done, he’s your doctor. His approach is aggressive and personal to each patient. His experience and track record speaks for itself. Dr. M is very knowledgeable. Sometimes too much. He does like to explain everything in great detail and can at times talk more than listen. However, once he gets to know you and your situation, he is extremely understanding and does his best to make a plan that is personal to you. After many visits, you realize how busy his practice is and how he and his staff go out of their way to make the process as comfortable as possible. Speaking of his staff, they are amazing! Super nice and very helpful with questions. When we first visited with Dr. M, we decided to try IUI’s first. They did not work for us, but I know they have worked for others. After one round of IVF with Dr. M, we are now expecting and so very excited! I would certainly recommend Dr. Moghadam and the staff at Austin Fertility Institute if you’re looking for a fertility doctor in Austin or the surrounding areas.
