We really liked Dr. Cakmak. He explained well answered our questions well took the time we needed. We felt in good hands medically and emotionally. The reasons we decided against fertility treatments at UCSF lay outside of his office and more in the way the clinic is organized and how streamlined everything was. The receptionist made it very clear that there was a protocol to be followed and the female patient had to do all the burocracy and would be the point person through it all rather than both patients being as equal partners as possible in this difficult endevour. I am not a native speaker and I need my husband involved as much as possible for multiple reasons. She made it clear that that was not an option. The check-list we got after our visit with Dr. Cakmak also felt overwhelming so did all the different persons we would have to see to get all our questions answered: financial treatment-wise procedural-wise ... We've been through this before and we will take all the hand holding we can get.

The explanations were very clear! I really appreciated the preparation the doctor did prior to the visit. Thank you.

For patients coming in who would like to harvest/ freeze their eggs there should be a simple hand-out or visual available with a calendar of treatment that describes approximately when the different treatment and interventions take place (i.e. on what day of your cycle you will need to take a pill on what day of your cycle you will need to inject yourself) so that the patient can plan accordingly (even if adjustments are made later). I left the office without a clear picture of what treatments will need to take place and when. The doctor did a good job explaining it but a hand-drawn schedule is not as helpful as a standard visual given to all patients. In addition a handout describing all of the medications should be provided. Lastly I price breakdown with estimates of the costs of the medications and the other parts of the treatment should be provided to the patient upon the initial visit. None of this information was provided.

I appreciate the care and concern that Dr. Cakmak had for me as a patient. In spite of the billing issues I've had in the past (that had nothing to do with Dr. Cakmak) I would recommend the office to others because of the great care I've received from Dr. Cakmak.

Dr Cakmak is top notch! He is so thorough reviews my records before the visit and is prepared. He clearly explains what's relevant his thought process our options. The organization of his thoughts is reassuring. All the while he is compassionate and pleasant. we had to go elsewhere for treatment but continue to return to Dr Cakmak and pay out of pocket for his opinion before proceeding. we have referred a few of our friends to him. His method of explanation is really effective his compassion comes through from greeting to good-bye. Others could really learn from his model.
