    Dr Rosen Is wonderful. He treats me like a human being rather than a patient -Gets to know me speaks frankly. Perfect balance between professional and personal. Great doctor all around

    Dr Rosen was excellent; very straightforward but also listened. Immediately felt we could trust him.

    Excellent provider and team! I had an extremely positive experience and couldn't have asked for a better care team during my procedure. Dr. Rosen is the best!

    Dr Rosen seems like one of those extremely smart people that finds it difficult to relate to other people. When I explained my update he wanted to know what my "mental state" was to understand what I wanted from him. He also pressed me on why I was thinking of not continuing care with UCSF. That made me a little uncomfortable because part of the reason was him and also the general disorganization and bureaucracy of UCSF. Dr Rosen doesn't seem very caring or empathetic. Not to say that I don't think he is he just doesn't communicate very well. Sometimes he comes off as arrogant and dismissive.

    Dr.Rosen is exceptional! He was so kind and put me completely at ease. I am a difficult case for transfers and he was a master! He handled the procedure with ease. My husband and I were both so impressed with him! Thank you Dr.Rosen!

    Dr Rosen is the most incredible doctor we have ever worked with and we are so grateful to him for not giving up on us and for his amazing expertise in his field. He fostered an environment of hope trust and expertise that was unmatched. This process has been one of the most difficult of our lives and we could not have endured it without the partnership of Dr Rosen. He truly embodies what being an RE is all about and we feel beyond lucky to have gotten to work with him.

    Dr. Rosen was so warm and had a very pleasant demeanor. I felt cared for and his bedside manner and engaging conversation about what was happening in the appointment made me nearly wish I had been working with him since my journey began. Thank you Dr. Rosen!

    This was one of the worst experiences I've had with a doctor ever. It was genuinely upsetting in addition to feeling unorganized and unhelpful.

    I had such a positive experience and was so happy with my provider and the care I received!

    Anesthesiologist kept talking about how most people' wanted to be treated or feel after a procedure and absolutely didn't seam to care about what I wanted as an individual for my treatment. Pretty frustrating when I'm trusting him to medicate me and he's not willing to listen to what I don't want.

    It is great to be able to watch the procedure on the screen.

    This was my first session with Dr. Rosen. He walked through my history carefully with an eye for detail. He explained some of the biology and timing with a level of respect and detail that gave me insight without being overwhelming. He seems to genuinely care about my experience and outcomes. Saying that I consider myself very lucky to be one of his patients is rather an understatement.

    We didn't discuss after care although there were instructions in the portal

    Excellent care provider. He knew my case was prepared with answers listened well and discussed options with me. Made me feel he genuinely cared about me and my case.

    There wasn't any information provided that day which couldn't have been easily done via messenger on the UCSF app felt a little like a waste of time having the virtual consult. Also had to ask Dr Rosen to break things down and had to ask/ clarify things a few times to get the information so that it was easier to understand.

    Love working with Dr. Rosen!! He explain things in a way that are simple and easy to understand and he has always been very caring and supportive to me.

    Dr. Rosen has thoughtfully answered any of the questions I've had. He has also provided sound guidance throughout the three egg freezing cycles. I would certainly go back to Dr. Rosen for any fertility issues in the future.

    I have NO IDEA who Mitchell Rosen is. Have never seen the man in my life. A female physician and assistant performed my baseline ultrasound.

    Dr. Rosen is an amazing caring and kind doctor who I heavily rely on for his expertise. I've had a long and complicated road and feel Dr. Rosen is always there for me to help me navigate through next steps with kindness and optimism. I appreciate everything Dr. Rosen has done and continues to do. I am thankful I switched to UCSF and found Dr. Rosen. His team that supports him is also amazing and kind including Dr. Wang who was really there for me during recent complications. I appreciate all the nurses and staff especially Liz who has always been so helpful and caring through this journey.

    Dr. Rosen was able to explain information visually on Zoom by sharing his screen and drawing pictures to explain the physiological things that may be happening with me. It was helpful because I am a visual learner. He also taught me how to change my thoughts on my care and have realistic expectations for my situation.
