Strengths: willing to work with tough cases. Weaknesses: not a very organized office and too few people on staff and too many involved in each cases there should be one nurse to go to. The clinic [Arizona Center for Fertility Studies] is very dated inside in some areas and old can sometimes mean hard to clean so it reflects badly on their clinic.... My nurse was the donor coordinator and she’s very good and compassionate and doesn’t miss much. Loved her.

Describe your experience with Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
Strengths: willing to work with tough cases. Weaknesses: not a very organized office and too few people on staff and too many involved in each cases there should be one nurse to go to. The clinic is very dated inside in some areas and old can sometimes mean hard to clean so it reflects badly on their clinic. People laugh about the main doc being too cheap to update it and that’s not good. It doesn’t have to be posh but 1980’s decor in some of the areas does not instill state of the art care in ones mind. It just doesn’t. L
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
He is extremely kind and cared about me and spent tons of time w me I like him very much but his office doesn’t run smoothly and this resulted in several serious oversights/mistakes that caused me to have to repeat the transfer. And his transfers are Much too expensive compared with much of the industry these days.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies. (Assigned nurse: Gina Caiazza)
My nurse was the donor coordinator and she’s very good and compassionate and doesn’t miss much. Loved her.
What specific things went wrong at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
  • Lost paperwork
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
It’s very crazy there and they follow old processes for paperwork and such that has too many fingers in the pot and things get missed. He offered a discount after I politely confronted about some mistakes they’d made on my cycle and He offered a 20% discount but didn’t clarify that was only a discount on his portion of the bill which was, I felt, deceptive and I may not have cycled again w them had I know the discount would be next to nothing. After spending almost 100k with them, that discount should have been more fair.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
I would look twice and consider practices because some things are very expensive there and consider an office w more nurses to handle cases and one w more fair transfer pricing.
Describe the protocols Jay Nemiro used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies and their degree of success.
For transfer, I had to have prednisone perhaps due to all my prior losses and was supposed to have intralipids also but couldn’t get them wher I lived. I think many things he does (treating for immune) is excellent.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
Regular cycles for retrieval and egg banking/freezing we’re 11k a cycle. When everything was fertilized on the last cycle, it was probably around 15K. Donor cycle was very expensive. PGS is reasonable there at $2000,00 for up to 8 embryos, but transfers of any embryos are $4,400 which I found to be very very high.
Describe Jay Nemiro's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
My doctor is progressive on this - he believes over say 43 & up the incidence of twins is low so why not put two in. I put two in both times and by the 2nd transfer, one did stick so it supported his theory.

Describe your experience with Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
I absolutely loved this office. Everyone was so friendly from the front office staff to the financial consultant to the embryologists to the doctors. I felt like they were our cheerleaders. They were for us when we received good news and were compassionate when we received bad news. I actually miss going into the office to see everyone.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shane Lipskind at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
My husband and I knew we had selected the right doctor after our first meeting with Shane. He is one of the most compassionate doctors I have ever worked with. He personally called with test results if we received bad news, but always had a plan in place on something we could do differently the next time. He truly cared about how I was feeling and understood how emotionally difficult the infertility process can be.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies. (Assigned nurse: Jennifer)
I worked with a few nurses in the office, but primarily with Jennifer. All of them were fantastic. They were so compassionate and caring. If I called or emailed with a question they made sure to get back to me the same day.
How was your experience with Shane Lipskind at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Lipskind. My specific problem had to do with thin uterine lining. Shane tried everything to try and thicken up my lining. We had a lot of setbacks, but he worked so hard to try and find a solution so that we could do an embryo transfer. He called clinics all over the country and developed a protocol that ended up working for me. We got pregnant on our first transfer. My husband and I could not have been happier with Shane. He was so friendly and truly cared about us. I personally saw him at all of my appointments unless he was out of town. One time when he was out of town, he spoke with me on the phone after I checked in with the nurse. Not only is he a wonderful doctor, but he truly cared about us.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shane Lipskind at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
Just be patient if things aren't going your way. It took us some time to get pregnant, but Shane worked tirelessly to try and found a solution for us.
Describe the protocols Shane Lipskind used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies and their degree of success.
We tried a few different protocols, but the one that worked was a Lupron prep cycle with heparin, Trentnal (to try and boost blood flow for lining) and estrogen patches.
Describe Shane Lipskind's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
After conversations with Dr. Lipskind, we decided to transfer two embryos based on my age and what the success rates were transferring two. We ended up transferring two and got pregnant with one.

Describe your experience with Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
Strengths, caring staff, tho some seemed a bit overworked, they always made sure I was taken care of.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
He met withwith me personally to go over game plan before each IVF, listened to my concerns, and was candid about why he recommended what he did reccommend. He even met with me, free of charge, in between children, for a question I had. He stayed in the office to call le with test results as late as 7 pm one Friday night, so I wouldn't have to worry all weekend. I always felt like I was a person (rather than a number or a statistic) and that we were a team with a stake in the fight to get me pregnant.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies. (Assigned nurse: Gina )
Gina is amazing! I cried in her arms a couple times when we had setbacks. She is very knowledgeable and safe when the process becomes overwhelming. She came over on her lunch and sat with me before my hysteroscopy at the hospital one day when I was scared and felt very alone. That was above and beyond! Jenn is very sweet and caring andand honestly rooting for you!
What specific things went wrong at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
How was your experience with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
Don't be afraid to ask questions and realize he is pretty direct; tjat os a good thing IMHO, but some people don't care for it.
Describe the protocols Jay Nemiro used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies and their degree of success.
Most of this I have forgotten, but I do remember we switched IBF stim meds when the first didn't get us to retrieval.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
Like a BMW purchase maybe? IVF three times isn't cheap. I don't remember all the actual numbers...

My phone calls [at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies] were returned in a timely manner (not the case at my first clinic). All my options were discussed beforehand. When I had concerns (which I think happen most of the time doing ART), I knew I could get thru to Dr. Jay and have satisfaction of an answer. Strengths: they fought with me to get me pregnant and most of the staff I came in contact with seemed to care about my getting a successful outcome. Weakness: sometimes a bit of a support staff turnover. Not really anything that effected my getting pregnant, tho.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies. (Assigned nurse: Gina)

How was your experience with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
I feel like he is very honest and candid, along with very knowledgeable. My first RE was apathetic and dishonest and I was not given the benefit of someone fighting to get me pregnant. I felt listened to, respected, and like he was personally rooting for me. Prior to getting pregnant, I needed surgery on my uterus and he called results at 6:30 on a Friday night so I wouldn't have to be in limbo all weekend. He spoke to a friend of mine who liveswho lives across the country over the phone who had suffered RPL and was near giving up. (She's a Mom now, too)!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
He is very direct, and will lay all his cards out on the table. It can be a bit of anshock at first, but he will fight to get you pregnant.

The nurses [at Arizone Center for Fertility Studies] ran the show. Gina was very nice and caring. Unfortunately the clinic was missing my ovulation each time so the IUI’s were a waste of time and money. The clinic makes you come in on cycle day 1-3 for a baseline US and then every other day and still this mistake was made. The amount of time put in to getting so many ultrasounds was very difficult on me. Michelle the financial coordinator was very brash and came across as uncaring. They will not work with your insurance at all for any testing.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies. (Assigned nurse: Gina)
Gina is very caring and empathetic. She takes her time to explain things and is a great asset to the clinic. Unfortunately, the office still uses paper and things seemed unorganized at times.
What specific things went wrong at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Lost paperwork
How was your experience with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
I saw Dr Nemiro maybe twice throughout the many IUI’s I did with the practice. He has a canned speech he gives everyone and pushes for high tech procedures. He runs very late and the waiting room is packed.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
If you are ready to jump straight to IVF then he may be the Dr for you. Just be prepared for long waits.
Describe the protocols Jay Nemiro used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies and their degree of success.
He put me on oral meds for 2 cycles and then to daily HMG injections. The thinking being more eggs giving higher chance of pregnancy. I produced 4 follicles each time and did IUI’s.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
Each IUI was around $1500-2000 They charged more for cycles using injectables due to more ultrasound appts.

I felt like everything was open, honest, and up front..... We had a reversal so it was one surgery. He did walk us through every step of the procedure beforehand and on the day of surgery. After I got pregnant he monitored me until I was 12 weeks to make sure the baby was where is needed to be.

Every nurse that I saw was amazing, friendly, and reassuring.
How was your experience with Shane Lipskind at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
Dr. Lipskind reversed my tubal ligation back in March of 2015. I am now holding our newest addition, a healthy 10 week old little boy. He helped us through the entire journey and made us feel so comfortable. Even when we miscarried back in 2016 he was a great support.

We spent over two years with ACFS due to struggles during our pregnancy attempts and he was ALWAYS there for us to vent, cry to and to cheer us on.

I highly recommend Dr. Lipskind if you are struggling to conceive, he is an incredible doctor and human being. To this day, we still send photos of our kids and let him know how thankful we are to him for partaking in our journey with us. Thank you so much, Dr. Lipskind!!

[ACFS nurse] Jennifer is an angel on earth. She's the perfect compliment to dr. Nemiro. She's warm, cares so deeply, and wears her heart on her sleeve...Jay is what I wanted in a doctor- candid, blunt, confident and knowledgeable. I wouldn't say he was warm, but I didn't need that. I wanted to get pregnant, and that's what happened. He knows what he's doing, and I trusted him from moment one. He wants you pregnant, and he doesn't try to make more money by making the process slower than it needs to be. He'd listen to me and offer his opinion always.
