Waste of time and money

I wish I could give a 0-star rating. Dr. Kazer was horrible. He did two of my retrievals at Northwestern (it's a turnstyle at Northwestern so you never know which Dr will do your retrieval or your transfer). He arrived to my first retrieval late (unacceptable with IVF!) The nurses had to go find him. He barely looked at me and tossed the consent form across the table at me. In both of my retrievals when I was unlucky enough to have him, he retrieved the fewest eggs by far (60% of what FCI retrieved once I wised up and went there). I had far more follicles going into the retrieval, so this was pure laziness on his part. And his crew got the worst results 1 embryo and 0 embryos. I averaged 5 embryos per retrieval at FCI. You don't realize how horrible Kazer and Northwestern are until you go elsewhere. Do not waste your time or money with him.

Don't go to him.

Scary guy. Told me his associate would be repairing my fallopian tube so that I could get pregnant. Did the operation himself and "Threw in a tummy tuck" without my knowledge or permission. I told him that would interfere with my desire to get pregnant, and he told me he could have taken more, as if I was fat at 128 lbs. True lunatic. Never got pregnant.

My experience is that he is only concerned as a businessman not as a caring doctor, I mean he is concerned how much money he can make a year. He does not care of my situation because he is not engaged in my case, even he is in the clinic and I have an appointment with him, he will not see me, he sent the nurse to follow up. I think instead of pay him I should pay my money to the nurse, because in my treatment he saw me only twice and the rest of the visits was the nurse. I DO NOT RECOMMEND HIM AS A DOCTOR!!!!!!

Dr. Kazer is assume! He has a pleasant bed side manor and is easy to talk to. He is very through and explains everything in a manner you can understand. He is efficient and quick. No long waiting time. Also makes you feel as ease in sometimes uncomfortable situations.I highly recommend him.

I would definitely NOT recommend this doctor. He lacks a caring bedside manner,spends almost no time with the patient and gave up on me after one cancelled cycle of IVF (no doubt because he is concerned about his stats and is not willing to take on "challenges"). He also failed to treat me and disclose to me something that was found on a test he did. It took another doctor to catch Dr. Kazar's oversight and treat the medical issue. Overall, my experience under Der. Kazar's care was a negative one. Go somewhere with a higher success rate and a more caring staff.
