The Core Institute
THIS GROUP OF DOCTORS IS SO BIG, SO COMPLEX THAT IT IS LIKE CALLING A GOVERNMENT AGENCY. NOT GOOD.The Core Institute is has a very slick web page, fancy offices, and a great public relations company writing their ads.... they also have wonderful doctors. Where this Institute looses big time is in their inability to build a decent phone/message system to match the "World Class" image they have bought.Really they can get surgeries schedule faster than anyone. Really their doctors ARE SUPERIOR that the average doc you will bump into in the Ortho field. Really they do have very good support staff and the very latest x-ray, MRI equipment. So at it's heart the Core institute is a very good facility... but it is NOT a USEFUL facility because it takes, on average, 12 min. to get through the phone tree (the hold waiting is one long very pompous infomercial that will drive you crazy). Then you will get a call center person (yes they are that big an organization) - their call center people are very nice but wait there's more! After waiting 12 min. to get a call center person - they will then TRANSFER you to the department you wanted, then you get ANOTHER INFORMERCIAL that can take another 5 min. or more, and then you get -- VOICE MAIL - at which point you leave a message. Occasionally, you might get a real person to answer and they will take a message to forward when they can to the person you were calling. In other words, it's a nightmare. And they do answer messages - but only in an average way - sort of hit or miss. So You can't just call ask for the nurse of your doc, talk to her or leave a message, you have to Call the institute, wait about 15 min on infomercial, get a call center person who will then transfer you to either a "triage nurse" or the voice mail of the person you wanted to call, you then talk to the triage nurse who will leave a message for the nurse who works for your doctor - and maybe you will get a call back - L A T E R. So there are so many layers to get through to just have a simple conversation with your docs staff that you will need to be institutionalized after dealing with the Core Institute. It's a shame but the Core Institute is so big - it is like dealing with a Federal Government agency... and you know what it is like calling a government agency. My advice - find a nice local Ortho Doc and get to know his staff - you will be happier in the long run.

Dr. Drew V Moffitt, MD
I had my consultation with Dr. Moffitt at Arizona Reproductive Medicine Specialist in January 2017. This was our last chance with fertility before giving up. We had been at this for years. After 4 unsuccessful attempts of IUI, we decided to switch doctors. From the very first consultation, my husband and I felt very welcomed and comfortable with Dr. Moffitt and the entire staff at ARMS. I was assigned a RN to follow me through the entire process. Gail and I became great buddies…talking almost every other day at times during the different stages of IVF. With all of the tracking, shots, meds, ultrasounds, bloodwork, etc I NEVER felt like a patient number. I always felt like family. You get to know all of the staff from your frequent visits. Then it came down to embryo transfer day. We were so on edge and nervous praying this was going to work and make our dreams come true of having our family. Every single person was so upbeat and asking if I needed anything or how I was feeling. They had great conversations to try to get my mind off of what they knew I was obsessing about. I thought the transfer was stressful, but the next 9 days before the blood test that would determine if it worked or not was worse. Dr. Moffitt calls that day with the results himself. THEY WERE POSITIVE! A dream come true!!! The next couple follow up appointments with the ultrasounds to make sure everything was progressing properly, Dr. Moffitt performed himself. I have never felt more comfortable and part of a family than I did at ARMS. On my last appointment, Dr. Moffitt gave me a gift bag with an ARMS teddy bear, resources, gift, and handwritten card. My husband and I could never thank Dr. Moffitt, Gail, and the entire ARMS staff enough. They are true miracle workers and I can’t wait for them to meet our little miracle. I would recommend ARMS to anyone and everyone.

Banner Health Clinic: Gynecology - Phoenix
I've had severe bleeding/clots everyday for almost four years and have went to several different Gyno's over the years. Each of them left me feeling like they either didn't care. I was told everything from I just needed to live with it to some women just bleed a lot, it'll go away. It was so frustrating and emotionally draining I gave up on trying to find a Doctor . After waiting another two years the bleeding/clots became so debilitating I couldn't leave my house and it was ruling my life. I decided enough was enough and started researching and reading reviews for every Doctor in Phoenix that I could find. I finally found Dr. Glassman and his patient reviews were outstanding, I called the office and the lady who answered was so polite and had a great personality, something that was so refreshing and you don't often find with Doctor's office personnel. I got an appt for the next week which was another shock, it usually takes weeks sometimes months! I went to my appt. and got in to see the Dr. within 20 min (another shock) the moment he walked into the room you could feel his positive energy. He wanted to know everything and was so caring! He immediately scheduled me for surgery and said he needed to find out why I was bleeding. Dr. Glassman is an absolutely fantastic Doctor, he has a wonderful bed side manner, he's caring and genuinely concerned about his patients. His staff is so courteous and personable, I couldn't be more thankful or happy that I found Dr. Glassman!

Miracle View 3D 4D Ultrasound
I thought this would be something fun to do and bring friends and family. Turns out it was a better idea then I thought! The 9 year old and the 79 year old were just as excited! It was something everybody still talks about 3 weeks later. The 5 stars is not only to recommend this particular business ( Miracle View Ultrasound 3D ) but to also recommend to do this type of ultrasound for the enjoyment/fun factor!I would also recommend looking at reviews online to find the place that best works for you. I was much closer to another facility, but there was many bad reviews and this place had really good ones. Don't know about the other places, but this one was a winner for us! (and I'm a little picky) FYI: There address is wrong on this page... This is their old address! They are 3519 E Shea Blvd. Suite 139 Phoenix

Independence Plus Inc
I an a caregiver of 3 gentleman who attend this program. One of the Men have being going to this program over 12 years. He loves the program and all the staff. They always have something going on throughout the month for them. I looked at other programs. Yes they looked bigger. But when it came down to it I was so afraid they would get lost in the shuffle. Independence Plus, Inc. maybe a smaller program in size. But not in care. I have seen and personally felt the special care from there staff. If you are looking for a Day Program for your someone. Or you know someone who could benefit from a good day program. Look into Independence Plus, Inc. They have my Love and Support!

Dr. Thomas G. Kotoske
How do you put into a few short lines what a doctor has been towards you? Dr. K has listened to me and gave me some of the best advice towards the look I've been looking for & has performed many miracles for me. I trust Dr. K completely with my life, and any judgement calls that he feel he needs to make. I recommend him to anybody looking for the BEST plastic surgeon in Phoenix. My only regret is that I didn't find him before I became a "frequent flyer".. so to speak. Anybody would be VERY, VERY pleased.. oh yes.. the icing on the cake is the wonderful gals that he has working for him to make sure the office runs smoohtly. The absolute BEST!!!

Cornerstone Women's Care
I have had Dr. Holeman as my OB/GYN for over a year now and he IS the BEST doctor by far. He is so professional, takes his time to answers all my questions and is genuinely concerned about my welfare. The entire office staff are SO kind, courteous and professional. I would recommend Dr. Holeman, his office and staff. Dr. Holeman's Assistant, Theresa is a delight. Overall, I have never experienced such a caring, clean, courteous medical facility. I am more than pleased:):):) Thank you ALL so much.

The Core Institute
I had a great physician that did back surgery on me but he left and moved back east. The physician that took over his patients has not talked to me more than 5 minutes for the follow-ups i had with him. His bedside manner is terrible. The staff leaves a LOT to be desired. He just doesn't act like he cares. If my original dr had stayed i'd give it a 5 star. I am changing drs. and will never recommend this place to anyone.

Dr. Thomas G. Kotoske
Dr. Kotoske and staff were great to work with, especially since I live 2,000 miles away in Chicago:) It was well worth traveling to have my surgery performed by him. My results are perfect and even the other RNs + MDs at the hospital I work at agree with me. Will be coming back to him for other cosmetic surgery at a later date, Highly recommend =)
Tips & Advices
OB/GYNs learn to treat infertility as part of their standard education. OBGYNs who further their training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility are known as fertility specialists.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment where medication is used to replace hormones a woman's body does not create naturally. Women are prescribed either estrogen alone or a mix of estrogen and progesterone. The former is given to women who've had hysterectomies, while the latter is for postmenopausal women. HRT used to be a common treatment, but doctors have prescribed it less often in recent years, as concerns of negative side effects increased.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where uterine tissue (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. This can cause extreme pain, especially around menstruation and during sex. Other symptoms include infertility, chronic fatigue, and painful urination or bowel movements during menstruation. In addition, many women with endometriosis also have allergies, frequent yeast infections, or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
Morning sickness is a common pregnancy symptom that includes nausea and occasional vomiting. Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time of day. The exact reason for this condition isn't clear, although most believe it results from hormone changes affecting muscle contraction and relaxation in the stomach and intestines. Another theory suggests morning sickness is caused by an abundance of intestinal bacteria in pregnant woman.
OBGYNs can prescribe or perform the following types of birth control:
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Birth control shots
  • Implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Cervical caps
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomies
Women do not need to see an OBGYN to obtain over-the-counter forms of birth control such as male condoms, female condoms, or sponges.
