CDC Success Rates

This is the most recent data from the CDC. The CDC cautions that it should not be used to compare doctors and clinics.

For more information please see our FAQs.

Where you see a “?” on the chart, a clinic has done fewer than 20 cycles in this category and age range, so the CDC says showing percentages from this small data set would be misleading and unreliable.

Make sure you have your history organized and be your own advocate. Once you get to him [Dr. Andrea Vidali], it's worth it...was very blunt. We have been looking for answers for 4 years and this is the first time someone was straight forward with us. He was very knowledgeable and always went out of his way to answer questions. My file was over 700 pages long and he went through the entire history with us. I was very impressed.
The nurses [at Braverman Reproductive Immunology] were all very nice, however disorganized. Trying to find the correct person for "who does what" is challenging. You really need to keep pushing to get what you need...Conflicting information from different people, trying to find who did what in a clinic I was not familiar with was not pleasant. Again, everyone was very nice, just need to be organized.

How was your experience with Andrea Vidali at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
I love that Dr. Vidali was very blunt. We have been looking for answers for 4 years and this is the first time someone was straight forward with us. He was very knowledgeable and always went out of his way to answer questions. My file was over 700 pages long and he went through the entire history with us. I was very impressed.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Andrea Vidali at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Make sure you have your history organized and be your own advocate. Once you get to him, it's worth it.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Andrea Vidali at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Dr. Vidali himself was absolutely amazing. His staff was scattered. They were all very nice, but seemed extremely disorganized.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.

Describe your experience with Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
The clinic survives on the reputation of it's doctors. The doctors are literally the best of the best. Their knowledge far surpasses any of the other doctors that I have spoken to. The staff is definitely a challenge, but again, the doctors really make it all worth it. By speaking with Dr. Vidali, I know that no matter the outcome, I've tried everything and had the best care.
What specific things went wrong at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
  • Lost paperwork
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to order appropriate test
  • Failed to send your chart to another clinic
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
When I was trying to get my initial blood work done I kept emailing in to have it scheduled. I lost two weeks until someone finally responded that they needed additional information from my clinic. Then once I was scheduled, I was called and told 2 days prior to me getting my blood work that I needed to call and ensure my testing was covered by my insurance. Getting the codes was a nightmare. Conflicting information from different people, trying to find who did what in a clinic I was not familiar with was not pleasant. Again, everyone was very nice, just need to be organized.

How was your experience with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Dr. Braverman/Dr. Vidale performed the most thorough work-up I've ever had in my life. Prior to this, we did not know the root of the unexplained infertility but Dr. B was clear that it wasn't age or weight. When the insulin resistance was identified, I changed my lifestyle and also set about losing weight. I think that had I not gotten a second opinion from Braverman, I would've continued to pursue unsuccessful cycles. Braverman also worked well with IRMS to coordinate management of my FET and early stages of the pregnancy with the immune testing and medication adjustment.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Be open to their methods and ask your questions. They go deeper than other offices to get to the root of the problem and will recommend a regiment based on the immune testing results for you rather than standard IVF protocol.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Dr. Braverman and Dr. Vidale were a team until Dr. B passed away. Dr. B handled the initial diagnosis, Dr. Vidale performed laparascopic surgery to address endometriosis and has managed this FET cycle with IRMS in light of Dr. B's passing. Dr. Vidale gave me his personal cell number and has texted me on several occasions to clarify/re-confirm certain instructions to ensure things don't fall through the cracks. He has great beside manner and has explained everything clearly and thoroughly.
Describe the protocols Jeffrey Braverman used in your cycles at Braverman Reproductive Immunology and their degree of success.
Dr. Vidale's protocol included Lovenox, baby aspirin, Metformin, Prednisone, fish oil, calcium and then based on initial immune testing Neupogen was added to the protocol. I've been told that there will be an additional two panels of immune testing in the first trimester to determine whether the protocol should be adjusted.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Braverman Reproductive Immunology. (Assigned nurse: Antoinette Rembert)
BRI has been adjusting to their new normal post the death of Dr. Braverman and there was turn-over of nurses over a short period of time when my cycle started so I perceived some disorganization. I believe they've gotten a handle on things and Antoinette Rembert has been my consistent contact for the past few weeks. She has both emailed and called me directly to ensure I have my instructions and/or to coordinate certain things. I greatly appreciated that after a bumpy start, we seemed to get back on smooth footing in terms of communication.
Describe your experience with Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
I visited the BRI NYC offices twice and visited Dr. Vidale in his NJ office one time and once for a blood draw. The wait time in both offices was manageable and when there was a wait, the receptionist offered an explanation. I have not done monitoring with BRI so cannot speak to that experience.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
BRI has a $3000 out of pocket payment and then have negotiated rates with most insurance carriers, even for those where it's out of network.
Describe Jeffrey Braverman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
Dr. Vidale was not involved in the actual transfer process.

Dr. Braverman has a small clinic despite have so many patients all around the world and consulting with many other clinics. Because his focus is on repeat pregnancy loss and difficult cases from all over the world, you feel like you're being catered to and getting access to much needed special treatment....Dr. Braverman is extremely thorough and describes everything in detail and answered all of my many questions with lengthy answers. He is extremely busy, however, and difficult to get an appointment to call/see. He also typically runs late because he is so thorough and spends extra time talking through complex results that are typical for his population of patients.
The clinic [Braverman Reproductive Immunology] is small despite them coordinating care for clients all over the world. It has a very exclusive feel. The hours, however, are not ideal if you need to go in person. First appointments for morning monitoring aren't until 9am in Manhattan and some things like intralipids need to be done in the Long Island office, wheareas immune testing is done in Hoboken. However, they are pretty much the only clinic who deals with the immune issues

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Be sure to do as much research as possible and ask for results in advance of appointments because there is so much information he provides and it helps to have a grasp of some of it and have your questions in mind before your meetings with Dr. Braverman. Note taking tool/device to allow you to jot down information to later eail when you have more time to process is also helpful.

First appointments for morning monitoring aren't until 9am in Manhattan and some things like intralipids need to be done in the Long Island office, wheareas immune testing is done in Hoboken. However, they are pretty much the only clinic who deals with the immune issues involved in repeat pregnancy loss and not only do they test for causes but they also test during pregnancy and adjust immune meds based on those results.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
They are quite expensive and my insurance didn't cover them aside from some of the monitoring and meds. I believe it was $3000 for the intial immune testing, $3000 for pregnancy monitoring, $9000 for retrieval, $4500 for Transfer without accounting for meds and such.

Dr. Vidali is very nice. He is optimistic, personable and clearly explains any test results. He also works on your behalf when he needs to contact the insurance company to explain why a certain procedure is needed. The only constructive feedback I would have is that I wanted more information about the process explained to me in more detail but the nurse was able to do this and that worked for me.... He first started me on Letrozole for 7 days, then I started Gonal-F and then Ganirelix. My trigger shot was Ovidrel two doses. He also had me take Doxycycline.
There are a lot of people in this clinic [Braverman] that you will need to interact with from the billing department, nurses, etc. It may take you some time to figure out who is responsible for what and this can make it seem as if the office is a bit disorganized. They do sometimes communicate with each other and will pass along messages to the correct person. The are all responsive and helpful.... I'm still working with the billing department on the final costs.

He [Dr. Braverman] was compassionate did everything he could do to help us...I was on gluten / dairy free diet, no red meat, no alcohol, no caffeine, & low sugar diet. I took probiotics and endometriosis supplements made by Dr Braverman. Calcium 1200 mg a day, D3 2000 mg a day, B12, Plaquenil 200 mg 2x a day metformin 750 mg 2x a day, prednisone started at 20 mg 3 x a day and ended up being about 80mg a day for about 2 mos prior to transfer. After we started the cycle added in a prenatal, fish fish oil, biogreen supplement, lupron, letrozole, lovenox, crinone, amoxicillian, delestrogen, prograf, viagara(that i had a allergic reaction to), had to stop crinone and take progesterone in oil for 10 days while things calmed down.

How was your experience with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
He’s compassionate, sensitive, caring, willing to do all he can to make sure he can help you achieve your dream. He gives you hope when you have none and encourages you to believe. That is 1/2 the battle. The other is him helping to prepare your body to get rid of all the issues that he can potentially control to give your best chances at conceiving and keeping the pregnancy.

Don't ever give up.

Describe your experience with Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
Sometimes the medicine schedule if there was a lot of medications didn't always print out the whole list. It was rare when that happened but if you ask the nurse she would double check to make sure. Most of the time if you had to go to another location they would tell you the location print the information out and it would be listed on your forms so you know where to go however if you forget you could always call and someone would always be willing to help you with whatever you needed.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
My expenses were out of network so I had coinsurance and a deductable to meet which was pretty expensive. Dr. Braverman worked with us to make it reasonable for us to try as long as we had coverage. Now that my insurance refuses to cover it we can no longer afford to try.
Describe Jeffrey Braverman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
We had 4 embryos that we got from the 1st part of the cycle that were frozen. All 4 were thawed and I was recommended to do all of them. I was nervous but the other Dr Vidale and the embryologist explained that it would be better to put them all in because it would increase our chances and some were not as good graded.

I find Jeffrey Braverman to be very understanding knowledgeable & honest. I came to him nearly 4 years ago needing surgery for Endo and leaking tubes. We came to to him with failed cycles and frozen embryos. He has been so understanding to our long journey. He has changed our protocol when needed, and always communicated every step along the way. Although we haven't had success yet I know we will I believe in him.
I came to Dr Braverman nearly 4 years ago. We had some frozen embryos created from another clinic. At our first sit down and exam he found leaky tube or tubes (which at the time no other previous clinic had found).He was very informative as to what our b/w for immune issues could show. He answered all our questions honestly and said in the time it would take to get back the b/w approx 6 weeks, feel free to email with any questions

Describe the protocols Jeffrey Braverman used in your cycles at Braverman Reproductive Immunology and their degree of success.
We used baby aspirin, Lovenox, Neupogen and prednisone. Plus we checked our immune b/w after a failed cycle. Changing the dose of prednisone and Lovenox. Prednisone 20mg 2 x a day. Lovenox 40mg 2 x a day. Our last cycle new donor eggs resulted in crappy eggs although we did get pregnant it was a chemical.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Braverman Reproductive Immunology. (Assigned nurse: Sandra)
The nursing staff is available both through phone & email. Calendars and cycles are always explained in detail. If there is ever a question and one of the nurses isn't avail through email. Dr Braverman is always avail through email usually answering within mins
Describe your experience with Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
As previously stated Reproductive Immunology is complex and Dr Braverman truly understands it and can explain in detail what the medications he prescribes are doing.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
Dr Braverman isn't cheap. I always say people should see him first not last. The company that he uses for his immune b/w Reprosource isn't cheap that partly where costs come in. He is fair though and tries to help where he can with costs. Although he can't cut costs with b/w as that is done through a third party.
Describe Jeffrey Braverman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
He goes and explained all the risks and everything to my husband and I in detail. Given my long history I believe I would still want to transfer two and take our chances. With my Endo and all

Initially Dr. Braverman's more direct manner struck my Midwestern sensibilities as less compassionate, but after more interaction with Dr. Braverman, I found that to be completely untrue. He was kind, confident and accessible. I remember when I was 3 months pregnant and so scared to stop one of the medications he prescribed. I emailed him to seek reassurance and he wrote back an incredibly supportive email on a Saturday reassuring me that he would be there to monitor me and oversee my care.

I think the strength is that the clinic is one of the only ones that has expertise in reproductive immunology. The clinic is perfectly nice and comfortable. The equipment is not as nice or 'cutting edge' as the one I left nor is the lab where I had the embryo transfer, but I didn't care because I trusted that they had the answer to my problem. And I would hands down prefer that than a fancy clinic that keeps throwing nearly the same protocol at me with the same negative outcome. Dr. Braverman's clinic saw patients both in Long Island and in Manhatten so they are clearly doing what they can to be accessible to patients, and Dr. Braverman will collaborate with other physicians elsewhere around the country and world as long as they are willing to acknowledge the partnership.

How was your experience with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
I was so relieved to find Dr. Braverman. I had experienced so many early losses or chemical pregnancies and I knew something was going on with my body because the story was always the same. Positive pregnancy test followed by declining betas, or betas that were increasing but not by enough to be viable or very early miscarriages at 5 or 6 weeks. Dr. Braverman was confident I was having an immune issue and after a thorough immunological work-up determined a protocol that he believed would address my issues. I left the clinic I had been at for years (and had helped me have my son) and moved my one remaining embryo to New York. Initially Dr. Braverman's more direct manner struck my Midwestern sensibilities as less compassionate, but after more interaction with Dr. Braverman, I found that to be completely untrue. He was kind, confident and accessible. I remember when I was 3 months pregnant and so scared to stop one of the medications he prescribed. I emailed him to seek reassurance and he wrote back an incredibly supportive email on a Saturday reassuring me that he would be there to monitor me and oversee my care. And it was a bit of a different arrangement where I had monitoring visits in DC area and everything was sent to Dr. Braverman for him to coordinate the care. I traveled to NY several times, but did much of the visits locally. He was flexible in making it work for me.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
I would highly recommend Dr. Braverman. I think his work with reproductive immunology is so fascinating and makes so much sense. I think he's a genius, and having the ability and incredible knowledge to evaluate someone's immunological functioning with respect to pregnancy allows him to have success earlier. If your clinic, like mine, dismisses it, push forward and have a consult with Dr. Braverman. I had one remaining frozen embryo after transferring 4 PGS normal embryos with the same result. He had one chance to get it right and he did. His protocol helped me stay pregnant and have my baby girl, and I will be forever grateful.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Dr. Braverman personally responds to emails and makes himself available for phone calls or Skype. He has a small staff who are kind, responsive and helpful.
Describe the protocols Jeffrey Braverman used in your cycles at Braverman Reproductive Immunology and their degree of success.
Based on my body's response to the prior embryo transfers, the number of early losses I had, and the results of my immunological work-up, Dr. Braverman prescribed neupogen, prednisone, and lovenox in addition to the medications common with IVF (progesteron, estrogen). He also monitored my body's response to the pregnancy. At the same time as my blood pregnancy test, he ordered another immunological work-up and it showed an increase of a particular cytokine, interleukin 17 (IL-17), which if I understand correctly research indicates is related to pregnancy complications and pregnancy loss. He doubled my steroid (prednisone) in response and I was able to progress through the period when I had lost each prior pregnancy. Clearly my body was reacting to the embryo so the medications he prescribed reduced the inflammation and, as I understand it, stopped my body's rejection of the embryo. I progressed through my pregnancy despite a number of high risks and my baby girl is now almost 4 months.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Braverman Reproductive Immunology. (Assigned nurse: Jasmine D'Alessandro)
My nurse was kind, thorough and responsive. She also talked me off the ledge a number of times when I had misstepped with the protocol (one time leaving very expensive medication out for hours that was supposed to be refridgerated). She was very helpful, understanding, and individualized the care for me. I asked her to email me instead of call me with the results of each blood pregnancy test because the call, for some reason, was so hard for me, and she did. She was understanding, compassionate, and competent. Another example that comes to mind is that she told me when a particular pharmacy was charging me through the nose for fertility medication and did some price comparison for me with other pharmacies she knew.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
There were fees for a consult, the frozen embryo transfer, the immunology work-up, reading the lab results, and the medication. One of the most significant costs, for which I had insurance coverage, is the particular lab where the immune work-ups are done. If Reprosource is not a covered lab for you, the costs could be very high.
Describe Jeffrey Braverman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
NA - I only had one embryo left so it was a non-issue.

After some complications at her birth I was told not to have anymore and I was fine with that. Well, surprise, I got pregnant on my own and boy was I terrified. Dr. Braverman was the first doctor I called because I knew he would help me. Of course he did, and my son is a happy and healthy 7 month old. I truly believe that had I not gone to see him, my son would not have had a chance. So now I am blessed with two girls and boy and if it weren't for Dr. Braverman, my last two wouldn't be here. He is truly amazing. Kind, compassionate and unbelievably knowledgeable in the field of fertility. You really will not find anyone better than him. We are forever grateful to him and I am so lucky to have been a patient of his.

How was your experience with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Dr. Braverman is an angel here on Earth. He gives hope to all of his patients especially to those who are ready to give up. I began seeing him because after about two years of trying, I wasn't getting pregnant. When I finally did, I lost him. Mind you I already had one so I didn't understand what secondary infertility was until I saw him. Long story short, he was able to figure out what was happening and on my first IVF attempt, I got pregnant. My daughter is 6 years old today and we feel so blessed. Fast forward to last year. After some complications at her birth I was told not to have anymore and I was fine with that. Well, surprise, I got pregnant on my own and boy was I terrified. Dr. Braverman was the first doctor I called because I knew he would help me. Of course he did, and my son is a happy and healthy 7 month old. I truly believe that had I not gone to see him, my son would not have had a chance. So now I am blessed with two girls and boy and if it weren't for Dr. Braverman, my last two wouldn't be here.

We are forever grateful to him and I am so lucky to have been a patient of his.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
He will find a way to get you pregnant. He is very intelligent and extremely knowledgeable in this field. Never give up hope as long as you are with Dr. Braverman.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Everyone is treated with kindness and with the utmost care.
Describe the protocols Jeffrey Braverman used in your cycles at Braverman Reproductive Immunology and their degree of success.
I can remember doing injections to prepare for egg retrieval and ultimately transfer. When it worked and I was pregnant, I was on prednisone and Lovenox injections until my 12th week. With my son who I conceived naturally, I started on baby aspirin and prednisone and Lovenox. I was on the aspirin and prednisone for a couple of weeks, but the Lovenox I was on the entire pregnancy.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff is unbelievable. Extremely compassionate and willing to answer any questions you may have.
Describe your experience with Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
Their strength is their willingness to help anyone and truly care about each and every patient.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Braverman Reproductive Immunology.

I was very fortunate that my insurance covered everything but I know Dr. Braverman would work with you if need be.
Describe Jeffrey Braverman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
He prefers multiple embryo transfer but of course only if it's right for the patient.

So, I arrived at Dr.Braverman's literally crying, still grieving and hanging on to the little hope I had left. I have trusted Dr.Braverman for so many years because his treatments and protocols are tailored to my specific needs. He was always present for appointments and available via phone or email with any questions or concerns I had. (And believe me, I had plenty and he answered them all!) His knowledge is extensive and his support is amazing. He's the first Dr. I recommend when asked. I am thankful, grateful and blessed because of him.
The nurses at Dr.Braverman's are excellent. They are easily approachable with questions, accessible via email and very supportive. They are super compassionate and have always provided me a shoulder to cry and open arms when I was anxious, nervous or joyous too.

How was your experience with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Dr.Braverman is by far one of the most genuine, compassionate and intelligent Dr's I've ever met in my life. His diligent work and determination to help me achieve my dreams never wavered even when I lost faith. I first came to Dr.B after 3 unsuccessful pregnancies and numerous treatments at a cookie cutter fertility clinic. I was told by a Dr. that my miscarriages were "simply bad luck." Said Dr. also said that one of his patients had 11 miscarriages, in a failed attempt to make me feel better. So, I arrived at Dr.Braverman's literally crying, still grieving and hanging on to the little hope I had left. I have trusted Dr.Braverman for so many years because his treatments and protocols are tailored to my specific needs. He was always present for appointments and available via phone or email with any questions or concerns I had. (And believe me, I had plenty and he answered them all!)

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Trust him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Because of the personal contact and communication during my entire journey, I've never felt like a number like I did at other fertility clinics. Dr.Braverman's genuine concern for me, my care and my goals of having a baby was always his top priority. The nurses and staff also made a huge difference by their wonderful support.
Describe the protocols Jeffrey Braverman used in your cycles at Braverman Reproductive Immunology and their degree of success.
My past protocols have been based upon my immune testing and Dr.B's knowledge and experience.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses at Dr.Braverman's are excellent. They are easily approachable with questions, accessible via email and very supportive. They are super compassionate and have always provided me a shoulder to cry and open arms when I was anxious, nervous or joyous too.

When we met [with Dr. Braverman] to review our results we had to wait over an hour in an empty office then while reviewing our results Dr. Braverman kept his phone ear piece in and would take calls occasionally. He also gave us a 'cookie cutter diagnosis' which ended up being false and according to a second and third opinion had no basis in science...
They [Nurses at Braverman - Manhattan] are very good at hunting down money and payment but slow to respond to any treatment or info requests...Will nickel and dime you and over charge you.

How was your experience with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
While I can see why he has helped many people since he is aggressive and out of the box thinking he completely mis diagnosed me causing me thousands of dollars in additional unnecessary treatment and months long delays. He seems enamored with his own intellect rather than truly caring about me as an individual. It was actually the worst treatment I have received in my 4 clinic and 10 ivf cycle pursuit for a baby.

I felt confident that Dr Braverman was going to utilise all his vast knowledge and groundbreaking research to help us, which was incredibly reassuring. He continually tests your blood so as to keep on top of your immune treatment, rather than just guessing as the majority of drs do. You can go for rounds and rounds of treatment elsewhere, or use your money for monitoring and have more chance of success. After 5yrs of miscarriages and drs we went with Jeffrey Braverman, the best decision we ever made! Our little miracle is such a joy! We felt the staff were great on the phone, but can't comment on the clinic as we never attended in person (we live in the uk).

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Seriously consider going to Dr Braverman if you have been struggling with fertility/miscarriage. Don't try the slightly cheaper immune drs first, it is likely to cost you more in the long run (not to mention the time lost and emotional struggle) having to repeat cycles, with less monitoring.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Dr Braverman was determined to get us to our end goal of becoming a family, not just interested in taking our money with a wish-washy approach of 'lets see'. After 3months on his endo supplements, and a short time on levothyroxine, we had a surprise natural bfp. Dr Braverman immediately got back to me on a Sunday to tell me what meds to begin etc. Excellent and humane service!
Describe the protocols Jeffrey Braverman used in your cycles at Braverman Reproductive Immunology and their degree of success.
Endo supplements to help what he felt were mitochondrial issues with my eggs. Low dose levo to help bring my TSH down slightly (not raised enough for nhs to do anything). We were due to start IVF with a clinic in Europe, with Dr Braverman advising, but got a positive test which remained prior to this thanks to the intial protocol. Afterwards my bloods showed an immune reaction, which Dr Braverman kept under control with various meds.

Dr. Braverman took time with me and my husband. He had a specific clear plan on how he would help get me pregnant and he was confident that he could help us. He did all his own ultrasounds and exams on me which made me feel important and not just a number...I was placed on vitamins prior to my cycle... reservatrol, vitamin D, folate, prenatal, daily green drink, melatonin, co-q10, pine tree bark, most of these are in his supplement called Endo-optimize. I was on prednisone as anti-inflammatory and Intralipids-infusion to assist with elevated inflammatory factors and natural killer cells. Lovenox injections for antiphoslipid antibodies. Frozen cycle to give my body a rest from the stimulation from cycling.

Dr Braverman saw me personally at ever visit, monitoring, ultra sound and called me personally with every result to discuss. He always took as much time as I needed answering every question I had and never once dismissing any of my concerns or fears....he treated me for elevated NK cells and MTHFR as well as endometriosis....he personally did everyone one of my untrasounds, called me after each beta to discuss the results, gave me my protocol and was there for me via phone, email or text.
The staff and nurses [Braverman- Manhattan] are absolutely amazing.

How was your experience with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
First of all, I love this doctor. He is so honest, full of compassion and truely does what he does because he wants to help people. I reached out to him in the middle of the night via his website after my 6th miscarriage with another clinic. I depleted hopeless and was referred to him by a few moms who had immune related fertility issues. I described what my journey had been this far and what I had experienced. Well I was shocked the next day when he personally called me to discussed what I had written him and said he thought he could help me as he felt my issues were immune related and not just "diminished ovarian reserve" which I was told every time I miscarried with my previous clinic (6 in total). Well he was right and I did have immune issues. And thank god for him or I would never have carried a baby to term if they weren't treated. I have two amazing children because of his labor of love. he personally did everyone one of my untrasounds, called me after each beta to discuss the results, gave me my protocol and was there for me via phone, email or text. Even after he released me to my obgyn, he still answered questions and concerns I had with each pregnancy. I just didn't trust anyone except him because I knew I matter to him and was just not a number or a paycheck. While it could take him a while to get back to me it was only due to the fact that he gave every patient the attention they needed and never rushed. and his honestly and directness is admirable. He's not doing this for the money. He's doing this because he truely cares and is passionate about what he doing in this very special field of medicine. His endless research in reproductive immunology is an example as he's always expanding his knowledge and that of others. He is the expert and if u think u have any immune related issues, he's the only one to go to. He will tell u the truth and if he can or can't help you, and if their is any doubt in his mind, he will do the due diligence to research options or information so you have a clear understanding of where u stand. I could keep going as I can't say enough about it!!!! My husband and I will always be so grateful to him. He restored our hope then gave us our children.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Be patient, you may have to wait for your appt, call or email with him but that is because he is giving another patient the attention they need and when it's your turn, he will do the same for you! Do not be afraid to ask him questions and advice, he wants to help and he's there for you. He truely wants each of his patients to be moms and will do all in his power to try to make it happen.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Dr Braverman saw me personally at ever visit, monitoring, ultra sound and called me personally with every result to discuss. He always took as much time as I needed answering every question I had and never once dismissing any of my concerns or fears. You may have to wait for your appointment but that is because he treats each of his patients like they r a part of his family and always gives as much of his time that is needed. I have cried on this mans shoulders so many times and he always gave me his time, compassion and honest empathy.
Describe the protocols Jeffrey Braverman used in your cycles at Braverman Reproductive Immunology and their degree of success.
While I would love to answer this question with detail, it would take more then this space allows to truely give you an understanding of my protocols. I will say he treated me for elevated NK cells and MTHFR as well as endometriosis. All which my first clinic didn't test for as they didn't believe in reproductive immunology. However, they didn't get me pregnant after 6 tries and he did within 2. Hmmm something tells me he knows what he's doing.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Braverman Reproductive Immunology. (Assigned nurse: Sandra and Linda )
The staff and nurses are absolutely amazing. So full of compassion and knowledge, they not only guided us through each cycle always available to answer all my questions but they also were our strength and lifeline of hope especially when I Thomas gut all hope was gone. They would take over and tell me that they r not giving up on hope for me. I've cry tears of joy and sadness in their arms.

Diagnosed me with PCOS. He explained what he was doing every step of the way. We did IVF. I got pregnant with my twins. He also treated me all the way through my high risk pregnancy. I went into labor early. I was hospitalized on bed rest for months. He helped me have two beautiful healthy babies. I gave birth at 37 weeks. They were perfect, born healthy and no time in the NICU.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
He is the best at what he does. He will find the problem and helps as best as he can to help you get pregnant.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
He personally care for me and my case. He helped me get over a miscarriage and gave me the courage to go on. He was positive and explained all our options.
Describe the protocols Jeffrey Braverman used in your cycles at Braverman Reproductive Immunology and their degree of success.
I came to Dr Braverman after 3 years of unsuccessful infertility treatments. Before I saw him I did 19 artificial inseminations, medications, and one failed IVF. ( so many artificial insemiations because they said I was so young). I quit my infertility routine but still kept track of my self. Got pregnant on my own. But ended up with another miscarriage. I went to see Dr Braverman. With one consultation I believed whole heartedly he had my best interests at hand. He knew our struggles and wanted to provide the best care he could. I had to heal. We started on IVF. I went in, my egg production wasn't so great. Only producing 4 eggs those resulted in only two embryos. Had a two day transfer. It was unsuccessful. But Dr Braverman and his staff never let me give up. We did a couple of IUI. In the time to no miss a beat. I had to wait a couple of months to save up because my insurance didn't cover any infertility treatments especially IVF. We started treatment in January the new year brought new hope for my husband and I. We went had 9 eggs retrieved resulting in 6 embryos. Studied and very knowledgeable now we opted to wait the 5 days and wanted 4 embryos transferred. This was our request. Drove through a snow storm 18inches to be exact. Had our transfer. Followed up. Waited an agnonzing 2 weeks to find out we were FINALLY having a baby. Dr Braverman took good care of me. A couple of weeks into my pregnancy it was tough. We had a lot of bleeding and since having 3 miscarriages was always on edge. But on a ultrasound which I was carefully monitored every 2 weeks, we heard not one heartbeat but 2. TWINS. I couldn't even believe it. We were happy knowing it was one to find out two we we're overjoyed. Still some complications. I ended up Going into labor after my 20 Week sonogram. I was hopitalized till 37 weeks. Closely monitored by Dr Braverman in the hospital. ( just a side note as I was hospitalized every chance Dr Braverman got to be at the hospital he came to check on me. He was still doing OB too. And he was a very popular Dr. He always took the time to check in to see how I was and how my spirts were.) At 37 weeks and 1 day I gave birth to a healthy set of boy/girl twins. My son was 5lbs 9oz and my daughter was 4lbs 12oz. They didn't have to be in the NICU and came home with me. He helped me through the whole process with an end result of TWO healthy beautiful babies. I owe it all to him and his care.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Braverman Reproductive Immunology. (Assigned nurse: Sandra Ramaladi )
It was excellent. They followed protocol and all the procedures Dr Braverman had put in place.

Who have had success stories.(My family, friends coworkers and strangers.)

I remember the day like yesterday that he [Dr. Jeffrey Braverman] told me I was having triplets. My husband and I were never so happy. He was so happy for us as well. At this point he transferred me to an specialist, but insisted to call him if we had an issues or problems. Which I did. I would call him anytime and received a call back within a few minutes or within the hour. If I wanted more children I would ONLY go to Dr Braverman. He is amazing and trustworthy. I couldn't thank him anymore for all he did for us. I would recommend everybody to go see him and you won't be disappointed.

How was your experience with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
I call Dr Braverman my miracle doctor. I went to other facilities and didn't get pregnant once. On the first try with a IUI with injections I got pregnant with triplets. He discussed previously to my insemination that it was a risk of multiples and I didn't care. I wanted to proceed, because I wanted a baby so bad. I remember the day like yesterday that he told me I was having triplets. My husband and I were never so happy. He was so happy for us as well.

She [nurse at Braverman Reproductive Immunology] always communicated with me via email but always got back to me in a timely fashion and answered all of my questions, even on weekends and holidays...Definitely an investment. Labs were $750 and recurring but insurance picked up a good portion.

Extensive (9 tubes of blood) and frequent (q 2-4 weeks) labs for detection of and monitoring of inflammation (& possible autoimmunity), and medications to correct or control any discovered imbalances, including IV intralipids (monthly), steroids (through 4th month), and daily injections such as neupogen (mid pregnancy), and enoxaparin (full term). All totally worth it.

Dr. Braverman is an expert in reproductive immunology. The problem is that personally he did not treat me with respect. In our first appointment he had us wait for an hour and when we met he seemed to be inconvenienced when we asked him more details about treatments. Also he had me wait about 45 min for an IUI, which is completely unacceptable since the IUI has a very exact timing....
Dr. Braverman is not covered under most insurances and the initial cost to be registered as a patient is $3000. I also had to pay an additional $1500 for the initial bloodwork....This practice does not have their own facilities for IVF, they use an outside clinic in NYC. Because of that they do not have any official IVF results at the SART website....The nurses and the staff were very good....they have not been vetted by an outside organization

He [Dr. Vidali] was my surgeon and probably the best I’ve had. He also did a great job at pre and post surgical assessment and follow up. He is compassionate and very thorough. He helped us to make decisions and was very candid. Top notch...He did a robotic laparoscopic abdominal ablation and took biopsies to rule out endometriosis...He told me a personal story about how one of his own children was an aneuploid embryo. He spent over an hour with me answering my questions and assuring me (and it was booked as a 15 minute phone appointment). In person he was personable and never rushed us. He was thorough and excellent in explaining everything.
[The staff at Braverman Reproductive Immunology] leave no stone unturned. They get results. They may have a bias towards underlying autoimmunity or inflammation, “silent endometriosis,” and they definitely favor surgical treatment but they are forthright about it and can back up their recommendations...He [Dr. Andrea Vidali] did a robotic laparoscopic abdominal ablation and took biopsies to rule out endometriosis...

I was treated individually by the doctor [Dr. Jeffrey Braverman] and staff [at Braverman Reproductive Immunology]. Some patients don't have this experience as the staff can be disorganized and busy and Dr. B can come across as though he thinks patients will never understand his work so explanations can be rushed. I took an active role and he responded very well and answered my many questions.

He's [Dr. Jeffrey Braverman] a pioneer in immunological rpl. He's funny, sensitive, thorough, detail oriented, and creative. He's also extremely busy and can be a bit scattered...I think mainly because his brain is just always so occupied. But he brought me my son after 5 miscarriages(1 in the 2nd tri, 2 with excellent ultrasounds, genetic profiles, heartbeats.)...
[Braverman Reproductive] Can be extremely busy and disorganized. Office staff can be abrupt. Long hold times, expect it and you'll be less frustrated. Be persistent...I worked with the clinic entirely over the phone. They were willing to expedite the shipments of Neupogen, work with my insurance and answer my questions via phone and email. Sometimes busy/disorganized, but ultimately came through when it was important.

I saw him [Dr. Andrea Vidal] for immune testing and an immune protocol. He is not really a trained reproductive immunologist even though he has been at BRI for a while. He is a very experienced endometriosis surgeon. Not really sure he has the experience to continue the immunology practice...He likes multiple embryo transfers...
After one negative pregnancy test I called [Braverman] to schedule a follow up regarding my negative test and was told I needed to talk to billing first and they would call me. I never heard from anyone for a month. I got immune follow up testing from my IVF clinic after that negative test...[the nurse] She wrote back right away to my emails...They ask for payment upfront but they do bill insurance if you have out of network benefits. That goes for immune testing, consults, follow ups, and endo surgeries. Then if they get money from insurance they send you a check back

After seeing so many doctors, he [Dr. Braverman] was our last chance. He seems to be the one who looks at the underlying reason why something is not working rather than just adjusting dose of same old protocol.... I could email him or book consult and ask questions. He spoke of the science. If I called the office and complained about the person doing the retrieval or transfer, they solved for it by having me change locations
Sandra is wonderful. This is a small office [Braverman Reproductive Immunology] without all the "stuff" the AMCs have. That is the one major downside. You need to know the IVF process and manage this yourself. It could mean multiple emails, calling the office, etc. You have to be on them. When on the phone they are great. The emails are great. They are just understaffed so nothing to do with Sandra herself. Believe me, I have offered to help Dr B optimize his clinic. :)

After seeing so many doctors, he was our last chance. He seems to be the one who looks at the underlying reason why something is not working rather than just adjusting dose of same old protocol. Really? Why do I need to keep talking if this is all I have to say?

Don't run away just because the immune blood testing is expensive.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
I could email him or book consult and ask questions. He spoke of the science. If I called the office and complained about the person doing the retrieval or transfer, they solved for it by having me change locations and moved embryos for me. Intimate practice.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jeffrey Braverman at Braverman Reproductive Immunology?
Dr Braverman and his team are very caring. Nurse assigned to me is always available for any kind of questions and very supportive. Dr Braverman works hardly on order ti get the success and he listens to me and my concerns.
Describe the protocols Jeffrey Braverman used in your cycles at Braverman Reproductive Immunology and their degree of success.
1sy cycle - Nature pregnancy- dr Braverman does not use clomid as he believes it worsens the Endometriosis. He put me on Femara for 5 days starting day 3 of cycle. From day 10 to 15 he used to do ultrasound to see how many follicles grow up. He also put me on Neupogen, lovenox, intarlipids, metformin and aspirin. I did conceive this cycle but misscarried with no heartbeat. He figured my omega6 to omega3 ratio was high causing more inflammation. So next cycle he put me on 1200mg fish oil 2 pills twice a day. 2nd cycle- Natural pregnancy- After correcting my omega6 to omega3 ratio second cycle saw the heartbeat with same protocol but I still misscarried as gestational sac was looking scattered on ultrasound. He figured there us something wrong with my uterus lining and advised me to go for first ivf so that he can have more control to see what's going on with uterus lining. 3rd cycle -ivf - we did egg retrieval and after that started finding out uterine lining issues. Did couple of EFT tests from yale university which revealed more glandular development and vaginal progesterone did not help to bring it down. So he put me on 3 months of depot lupron and after it we did frozen transfer. I still misscarried. Entire protocol was same except this time I did PIO shots instead suppositories.
