The entire staff is so so nice. Nurses and doctors respond back very quickly and explain all situations clearly. Plus I had my first ultrasound of my baby today and saw a very fast and very tiny heartbeat. It is my first child and there are no words to explain that joy. Northwertern made this possible for me and my husband.

Dr. Goldman came off as capable yet personable. She took time to explain the fertility testing and egg freezing process to me, and to listen to my goals and situation. I have many friends considering egg freezing, and have already recommended her to one.

She broached difficult issues (namely, my age) with kindness and compassion. Also, the waiting room seemed very busy, but our appointment was not rushed. She provided ample time to explain things and answer questions.

Dr. Goldman exemplifies compassion and empathy for her patients that goes beyond her role as just a physician. Her thorough explanations including diagrams and pictures were extremely helpful in understanding each step of the IVF process which as healthcare professionals ourselves is a completely different beast to comprehend. Her optimism, dedication, and compassion secured our trust in her which is so important during this emotional and stressful rollercoaster ride. We are so grateful to have had Dr. Goldman as our IVF provider.
