Attention to Detail

Attention to detail is on a 1 - 10 scale, and is scored based on the rate, and severity, of errors committed by the clinic according to the patients.

For example, a severe error might be failing to inform a patient of critical information, while a small error might be failing to call a patient with results.

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. This data represents the outcomes of IVF cycles when using a person's own eggs.

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.

Dr. Klein truly cares about the patient. Optimal results is an individualized thing and it cannot be compared to others...Not only did he take the time to explain it in the way I would understand it but also in a very compassionate way which I appreciated and realized was necessary for me to get through the process...
There's always a sense of privacy and respect. The waiting room is never full. appointments are very on time. If you are late they are super accommodating and understanding...I knew if I had any questions I could call [the Extend Fertility nurses] any time and even multiple times and I would not be made to feel less than. In short-they really do truly care about the individual..
How was your experience with Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility?
Dr. Klein truly cares about the patient. Optimal results is an individualized thing and it cannot be compared to others. This was explained to me and thank God he did help me obtain those results! The process is not an easy one but choosing Dr. Klein should be.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility?
Dr. Klein is so real and down to earth. As a doctor I was expecting him to explain the science without any human component. Thankfully I was wrong. Not only did he take the time to explain it in the way I would understand it but also in a very compassionate way which I appreciated and realized was necessary for me to get through the process.
Describe the protocols Joshua Klein used in your cycles at Extend Fertility and their degree of success.
I started with his standard protocol for my initial lab results. About half way through the dosage was adjusted. The results were very positive.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Extend Fertility.
They were always so kind and patient. At times I repeated my questions for clarify and I was already responded to with compassion and understanding. I knew if I had any questions I could call any time and even multiple times and I would not be made to feel less than. In short-they really do truly care about the individual.
Describe your experience with Extend Fertility.
There's always a sense of privacy and respect. The waiting room is never full. appointments are very on time. If you are late they are super accommodating and understanding. The office itself has a very modern feel and is always clean. No discussions every take place in the waiting area no matter how insignificant it may seem.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility.
I don't know the exact cost but it was certainly more reasonable than another clinic I had inquired about. Not only are they less expensive but I would make the choice to use Extend even if the cost was more.

Dr. G has a good bedside manner--straightforward but warm. He is decisive about the treatments he pursues but makes sure you feel on board with each stage of treatment. He definitely seems like he knows his stuff and answers questions thoroughly and explains the science behind his decisions without being dismissive.
Extend is a clean, modern, well-run clinic with a fantastic nursing staff. Affordability is a priority for them, and I appreciate their transparent pricing and care with managing the financial aspects of the process. I felt very well supported and treated with care and dignity...I can't say enough good things about the nurses and support staff at Extend. After a horrifying few visits to a different clinic, walking into Extend felt like a breath of fresh air. They're incredibly organized, competent, and supportive. I never felt like I was falling through the cracks, and everyone greeted me by name despite it being a very busy practice. Kezia, specifically, as my patient coordinator, was truly a gem.

Dr. G is friendly and upbeat and present for the majority of my monitoring sessions (or as much as needed on request). He takes my questions seriously and is encouraging but realistic.

They prefer eSET and PGT. This was what I planned to do anyway...not sure if they require it.

I felt that Dr. Maslow was definitely educated and intelligent and when I did get to speak with her, she was very willing to explain everything. However, after the initial consultation, I did not see her once. She was not at any of my monitoring appointments and did not perform my egg retrieval. After the retrieval, she did call me with the results, even though they were worse than we hoped
The [Extend Fertility] clinic is very organized. Your calls are answered and nurses call back quickly. Everyone is very nice and professional and you feel taken care of by the support staff. The only issue I had was communication with the nurses and doctor. The clinic itself is very nice though...The nurses were not always up to date on the latest decisions that had been made.
How was your experience with Bat-Sheva Maslow at Extend Fertility?
I felt that Dr. Maslow was definitely educated and intelligent and when I did get to speak with her, she was very willing to explain everything. However, after the initial consultation, I did not see her once. She was not at any of my monitoring appointments and did not perform my egg retrieval. After the retrieval, she did call me with the results, even though they were worse than we hoped. It took two weeks to get a phone call with her after my cycle. I felt that this was completely unacceptable. She did not encourage me to email or call her with any questions and overall I did not feel supported at all.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Bat-Sheva Maslow at Extend Fertility?
Advocate for yourself and ask questions
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Bat-Sheva Maslow at Extend Fertility?
Dr Maslow was always nice when we spoke, however I felt that she did not communicate often enough and I was left with many questions and confusion a lot of the time
Describe the protocols Bat-Sheva Maslow used in your cycles at Extend Fertility and their degree of success.
I had two vials of menopur and gonal. At a certain point the menopur was increased the three vials and cetrotide was added. My cycle was not nearly as successful as we had hoped it would be.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Extend Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Avigayil Edelman )
The care coordinator was extremely helpful and always called me back quickly answering all of my questions. I felt that the nursing team in general did not take the time to make sure that the patient fully understood the instructions or results. They didn’t offer any information, you had to ask every single question if you wanted answers

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Extend Fertility.
The nurses were not always up to date on the latest decisions that had been made. They would call me and say things like “start estrogen patches so we can do your next cycle in 10 days” and I would just be confused because I hadn’t even spoken the the doctor about my last cycle and had not made any decisions about upcoming ones

Dr. Klein is a very sought after dr. which makes getting a consultation with him quite difficult. However it was worth the wait as we got quite good results with him. With a diagnoses of unexplained infertility he told us our best bet was IVF which although expensive and hard to hear saved us a lot of pain and heartache. We did get the results we wanted with IVF....With unexplained infertility we took our chances with clomid and iui. We were told not to continue past 3-4 cycles as that would be expensive and we’d not likely see results. We continued with ivf
The clinic [at Extend Fertility] is hi-tech modern and clean. They recently expanded their offices and waiting room. It has enough seating for patients and spouses. They have everything onsite including a lab and sterilized procedure room...The nurses and staff and extend are exceptional. It seems like a couple of nurses are assigned to each patient for the duration of treatment. They say the facts gently but as they are. I never felt rushed on a phone call and my calls were always returned.

Dr. Guarnaccia met with me for my initial consultation after my AMH testing and explained my potential for egg retrieval, while carefully managing expectations due to the fact that not all factors can be controlled. He told me what drug protocol I would be using and tweaked it towards the end of my cycle (lowering it a bit), which was clearly the right decision because I was very happy with the outcome.
I was initially concerned about working full time and going into the [Extend Fertility] clinic every other day (and every day towards the end), assuming it was going to be a timely process. Extend Fertility did a great job of getting me in and out in under a half hour, and called me promptly after my visits to give me my drug protocol. All the nurses I dealt with for bloodwork and ultrasounds were friendly and easy to talk to which really helped.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Guarnaccia at Extend Fertility?
I did a lot of my own research and knew what to expect, so I didn’t have to ask many questions. I’d say that you should take advantage of your initial consultation with him and come prepared with questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Guarnaccia at Extend Fertility?
Dr. Guarnaccia carefully explained my AMH results and gave me an idea of what I could expect if I pursued egg freezing. He was really warm and friendly during our initial meeting, and didn’t rush me at all.
Describe the protocols Michael Guarnaccia used in your cycles at Extend Fertility and their degree of success.
Dr. Guarnaccia told me that my AMH level showed I had PCOS, and he put me on the lowest drug protocol. Towards the end of my cycle, I was told to skip my menopur injection, which was the right move— if my estrogen was any higher, I’d probably develop Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Extend Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Chelsea)
My fertility advisor, Chelsea, told me to email her with any questions I had after we met and she walked me through the process. I emailed her on and off for months, until I actually started my egg retrieval. She always emailed me back the same day and was very helpful.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Extend Fertility.
I was able to request times within their monitoring window that suited my commute from south Brooklyn. I don’t think I ever waited longer than 5-7 minutes to be seen each time, and after my bloodwork was done, my ultrasounds followed quickly. I was generally in and out each time in under a half hour.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Guarnaccia at Extend Fertility.
I paid $6500 for the egg retrieval and approximately $2500 for the medications.

Dr. Maslow was candid and took the time to ask me my understanding and knowledge. She was very direct and sometimes a bit more understanding/soft and caring approach would have been helpful . For example, while discussing my progress mid-cycle and that I was slower than expected, the communication was very direct and matter-of-fact. I think I would’ve preferred some more validation of the challenges associated with the process.
The [Extend Fertility] clinic staff warmly welcomed me each morning I came. They (mostly) patiently answered questions I had in my afternoon phone calls...The care coordinator was organized, efficient, and very responsive and responsible whenever I contacted her...The clinic is efficient and mostly warm/caring staff. I wish they would’ve had primary nurse(s), so that I would know that a concern I discussed with someone one day, I could follow up on with the same nurse another day, rather than sharing all over again.

I did not have a primary nurse(s), which would’ve been helpful. On the day I received my trigger call, a nurse I had never spoken with called with my instructions which were different than what a different nurse (who I had spoken with numerous times) told me. I was disappointed to hear from someone new (to me) on my last day. When I requested to speak with a nurse in the clinic and by phone, they were mostly very responsive, compassionate, and patient with my questions.

Later in the afternoon, the original nurse I had spoken with called me and I straightened everything out with her.

Dr. G was professional, kind, knowledgeable, and very action-oriented. I left every appointment feeling confident in our plans and next steps. When he realized that I may need extra monitoring, he made sure that he was doing the ultrasounds so that he could have the most accurate data (since numbers may be different depending on who is doing the ultrasound). I found that to be so comforting.
Extend was incredible. Everyone was so professional as well as compassionate, which is so important during a time like this. The facilities were clean and they didn't feel like a doctor's office, which is always a plus for me. I was also seen on time always and was in and out which was great. The staff was always available to answer my questions.

Use him - you won't regret it!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Guarnaccia at Extend Fertility?
Dr. G was incredible every step of the way. I was recommended to him by my CEO and I went for a consult before I was ready to do egg freezing. He gave me such valuable information and I immediately felt comfortable with him. When I was ready to pursue egg freezing I decided to shop around a bit and I had a horrible experience. Dr. G got on the phone with me for 30 minutes and explained how my other experience was likely not accurate and gave me actionable next steps and assured me we were going to figure this out.
Describe the protocols Michael Guarnaccia used in your cycles at Extend Fertility and their degree of success.
Dr. G started me on a higher dosage of hormones because my AMH was low. We realized that my body was responding well to the hormones and in fact, my hormone levels were going up quicker than the eggs were maturing. Because of that, I had to go in for more visits than expected and he changed the course of my treatment a bit.

Dr. Maslow explained the process and procedure clearly and answered my questions. She treated me with respect and delineated expectations based on my lab work and ultrasound results.

Dr. Klein not only provided the utmost medical care, regarding all treatments performed, but he always made sure to address the psychological aspect of all that I was going through, and always suggested ways to help me cope and to not feel alone...Dr. Klein strongly recommended transferring only 1 embryo, especially since my embryo's had PGT-A testing and only genetically normal embryo's were being transferred...
Extend Fertility is an incredible clinic. They are located in midtown Manhattan, making it super accessible and easy to get to...a wide range of morning monitoring hours, making it easy to accommodate your schedule.Everyone there is so kind and so friendly...The nurses are easily accessible, whether it's over the phone or in person, which makes it easy to have your questions answered. Additionally, a really big perk of Extend, is that it has an additional office/OR on the floor above its main clinic - This means that all procedures to be done happen in the same building, no hospitals to go to, just convenient and easy.
How was your experience with Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility?
Fertility is unique, where everything is so tailored to the individual person - What works for some, may not work well for another, and therefore, having a great doctor, who tailors treatment to you, the individual, is so important. Additionally, fertility treatment has an immense emotional and psychological component to it, thats crucial for your doctor/care team to address and be conscientious of. As a patient of Dr. Klein, you get the best of both worlds - You receive the most incredible medical care available, tailored to you and your specific needs/bodily responses, in addition to having the most caring and compassionate doctor imaginable. Dr. Klein not only provided the utmost medical care, regarding all treatments performed, but he always made sure to address the psychological aspect of all that I was going through, and always suggested ways to help me cope and to not feel alone. There's truly not enough words/ways for me sing my praises to Dr. Klein. He is one of kind, incredibly knowledgeable, skilled, and so compassionate - Anyone going through fertility treatment/preservation would be lucky to be a patient of his.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility?
Don't hesitate to see him! You will not regret it! Whether its for fertility preservation or treatment, he is the best of the best, and you will be so taken care of and feel so happy under his care.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility?
Dr. Klein, and all of the Extend Fertility team, made my experience so personal; I always felt cared about, I always felt like my questions and concerns were being validated, and I always felt like a conscious effort was made to make me feel as good and as happy as possible. Going through IVF can get really tough, both physically and emotionally, and I always felt like those tough aspects were addressed; whether is was by a nurse calling me with instructions, sonographers at monitoring appointments, for really by anyone I encountered or spoke with at Extend, my well-being was always addressed and I always felt truly cared about. Not once throughout the almost year and a half I spend there did I ever feel like a number - I always felt cared about, and like my care was personalized.
Describe the protocols Joshua Klein used in your cycles at Extend Fertility and their degree of success.
I originally started seeing Dr. Klein due to recurrent pregnancy loss. During my last pregnancy, before starting IVF w/ PGT-A, Dr. Klein thought out of the box, and prescribed me progesterone and lovenox, in the hopes that those medications would help sustain the pregnancy. When my pregnancy resulted in a miscarriage, we decided to pursue IVF with PGT-A testing, in hopes of transferring a genetically normal embryo and subsequently achieving a healthy, viable pregnancy. Since I am relatively young, with a normal ovarian reserve, I responded well to the stimulation medications, and had, what I believe to be a pretty normal stim's cycle protocol (the same protocol was used for both of my egg retrieval cycles) - Menopur, Follistim, Ganirelix, and a Luprolide Trigger. Both cycles yielded over 35 eggs, majority of which fertilized.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Extend Fertility.
I have nothing but great things to say about the nursing staff at Extend Fertility. The nurses play a huge role in your overall treatment, as daily instructions and next steps are usually relayed by them. With that said, I'm so grateful for all of the nurses at Extend. They were all always so kind, so genuine, and so patient. They never made me feel rushed while on the phone with them, and they were always more than happy to address any questions or concerns that I raised. They showed tremendous compassion, and always tried to accommodate my schedule as best as possible. The nurses truly enhanced my overall care at Extend and always made me feel so cared about. When, after a long time, I had success, the nurses truly shared in my joy with me, and it was evident how much they cared and how genuinely happy they were for me.
Describe your experience with Extend Fertility.
Extend Fertility is an incredible clinic. They are located in midtown Manhattan, making it super accessible and easy to get to. The clinic was just renovated, and it is beyond beautiful, clean, and truly a pleasure to be in. They have a wide range of morning monitoring hours, making it easy to accommodate your schedule.Everyone there is so kind and so friendly - Even though its a fertility clinic, the environment is calm, serene, and overall a pleasant and enjoyable place to be. The nurses are easily accessible, whether it's over the phone or in person, which makes it easy to have your questions answered. Additionally, a really big perk of Extend, is that it has an additional office/OR on the floor above its main clinic - This means that all procedures to be done happen in the same building, no hospitals to go to, just convenient and easy.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility.
I don't remember the specifics of my costs, but I do remember it being highly affordable, especially compared to other Manhattan clinics.
Describe Joshua Klein's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Extend Fertility.
Dr. Klein strongly recommended transferring only 1 embryo, especially since my embryo's had PGT-A testing and only genetically normal embryo's were being transferred. I completely agree with this approach, and was a big proponent of transferring 1 embryo as well. When, after 2 of my transfers/FET's failed/did not result in a pregnancy, before moving on to another transfer cycle, Dr. Klein recommended a short break, and he performed the Endometrio test/biopsy as well. When the biopsy results came back as receptive, I suggested/asked if transferring 2 embryo's could be done the next time around, in hopes of increasing the chances that at least 1 would implant - Dr. Klein still suggested that I transfer only 1, but said he was willing to transfer 2, since he understood the logic/reasoning behind my request. Needless to say, that transfer was, thank God, successful. At the end of the day however, had Dr. Klein been adamant about still transferring only 1 embryo, I would have happily went along with it - I completely trust him, and know he has his reasonings for doing things certain ways.

Dr Klein is extremely knowledgeable with years of experience in the field. He took the time to walk us through expectations, addressing our fears and concerns. He is very data driven, which as a data nerd I loved. He was very straight forward and gave us realistic expectations for our particular case. He was always available by email for questions & made us feel really confident throughout the entire process...
All of the nurses are Extend are amazing! They did a great job during all of the monitoring appointments as well as giving post appointments instructions for medications...They are very transparent from the start including pricing which was a big deal for us as we had to pay out of pocket (my insurance didn’t cover any infertility procedures). They took amazing care of us & we look forward to going back to them as we grow our family...
How was your experience with Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility?
We are so happy we decided to go with Dr Klein and Extend Fertility. Dr Klein is extremely knowledgeable with years of experience in the field. He took the time to walk us through expectations, addressing our fears and concerns. He is very data driven, which as a data nerd I loved. He was very straight forward and gave us realistic expectations for our particular case. He was always available by email for questions & made us feel really confident throughout the entire process.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions & to reach out. Dr Klein is a wealth of knowledge.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility?
One of the things we loved about Dr. Klein was his strong communication. He would always answer emails with any questions we had or would be happy to jump on a call. Communication was very important to us when deciding on a doctor / clinic.
Describe the protocols Joshua Klein used in your cycles at Extend Fertility and their degree of success.
For our egg retrieval process we utilized the following drugs - menopur, follistim and ganirelix. I was on high dosages for all drugs due to my low AMH levels. We only had to do 1 egg retrieval process as this resulted in 6 genetically normal embryos. Given mine & my husbands age (late 20s early 30s) Dr Klein gave us a high confidence rating that 6 genetically normal embryos will yield in 2 children, potentially even 3. We were always on board for genetic testing so there was no persuasion needed by the clinic. They also did ICSI. For the frozen embryo transfer I did oral estrogen, progesterone suppositories and progesterone in oil shots. My progesterone levels were border line low hence the need for both suppositories and intramuscular shots. I was weaned off at about 10 weeks gestation. The first (and only) frozen embryo transfer worked and we now have a son.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Extend Fertility.
All of the nurses are Extend are amazing! They did a great job during all of the monitoring appointments as well as giving post appointments instructions for medications.
Describe your experience with Extend Fertility.
No negatives for the clinic. They did an amazing job and we will be forever grateful for them! They are very transparent from the start including pricing which was a big deal for us as we had to pay out of pocket (my insurance didn’t cover any infertility procedures). They took amazing care of us & we look forward to going back to them as we grow our family.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility.
The egg retrieval process not including medication or genetic testing was $11,000. Genetic testing was an additional cost of about $2000 (done by an outside lab) Medication costs were roughy $4000 for the egg retrieval. The frozen embryo transfer not including medication was $3000. Medication for the transfer was covered by insurance.
Describe Joshua Klein's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Extend Fertility.
Dr Klein does not transfer more than one embryo at a time. He told us the goal is to have a healthy full term pregnancy, and transferring multiple embryos increases the chances of multiples which are usually higher risk pregnancies. We believe he does what’s best for his patients.

How was your experience with Michael Guarnaccia at Extend Fertility?
I always felt I was in safe hands with Dr Guarnaccia. On the occasions where we met, he gave me plenty of time to ask questions and I never felt rushed. He came across as highly professional, competent and trustworthy, as well as warm and personable. I'm pleased with the results I saw with him on my first round of egg freezing and will be going to him again for my second round.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Guarnaccia at Extend Fertility?
As with any doctor, do some reading in advance and have a list of questions prepared. Make the most of valuable in-person time with the doctor. That being said, on the occasions where I had ad hoc questions (e.g. checking whether a new non-fertility-related medication was safe for me to use in conjunction with my egg freezing treatment), Dr Guarnaccia was highly responsive and came back via the clinical team very promptly and professionally.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Guarnaccia at Extend Fertility?
My case was fairly uncomplicated, as a 31-year-old with no fertility problems. As such, Dr G and I only spent limited time together in person – I spent the majority of time with the clinical team (nurses, patient care advocates etc) and Dr Maslow ended up performing my surgery because that's who was available on the day of my retrieval.
Describe the protocols Michael Guarnaccia used in your cycles at Extend Fertility and their degree of success.
On my first egg freezing round, I believe my protocol was 225 Follistim and 1 vial of Menopur per day. We bumped it up to 2 vials of Menopur per day after about day 4 and then included Certrotide towards the end of the cycle. For my second egg freezing round, we are going to be slightly less conservative and do 2 vials of Menopur per day, likely stepping up to 3 vials at some point.

He [Dr. Klein] is honest and straightforward so as not to get your hopes up, but communicates information in a kind and empathetic way...He made himself available every time I asked him to speak again to ask more questions about what went wrong and made suggestions on what changes he would make to the protocol for the next round (while also letting me know we may not get better results the next time). He never gave me false hope, but I felt confident in his plan
Anything more complicated regarding questions about protocol, [the Extend Fertility nurses] would let me know they would relay to Dr. Klein and would call me back with an answer. They were consistent and reliable...They're really a great team - even the embryologists emailed me after I had questions the nurse couldn't answer. Advice to a new egg freezing patient: do your research - on the doctors, the lab, and the clinic. Understand how many eggs you want to freeze going into it, and how many cycles that may take
How was your experience with Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility?
Dr. Klein is fantastic. I was nervous about this process and came into the clinic for a second opinion after a not so great experience at what is considered the "top" fertility clinic in New York. I was hesitant about the whole process, and also came prepared with lots of questions, and felt completely comfortable moving forward by the time I left. He is honest and straightforward so as not to get your hopes up, but communicates information in a kind and empathetic way. I had a disappointing result after my first cycle and was devastated (my body just didn't respond to the meds as well as we had anticipated). Dr. Klein called and gave me the news himself and I could tell he was just as disappointed. He made himself available every time I asked him to speak again to ask more questions about what went wrong and made suggestions on what changes he would make to the protocol for the next round (while also letting me know we may not get better results the next time). He never gave me false hope, but I felt confident in his plan and decided to do two more rounds a year later. When I came back to the office, he remembered everything from our last round, we moved forward with the new protocol. I was stressed throughout the process but he was always available to answer questions (and I always had a lot of questions) and I always felt like he truly cared about the outcome. All of the changes he made to the protocol worked and I had two more retrievals with great results :)
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility?
If you are unsure of anything or have questions, just ask! I had questions about my diet, different protocols, and a million other things. He was always open to listening to me and providing thorough explanations that helped to make me feel more at ease.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility?
Everyone in the office is kind and helpful; they are efficient and understanding. I always felt like I was in good hands, whether with the nurse, sonogram technician or a doctor. They are friendly and make themselves available to answer questions as needed.
Describe the protocols Joshua Klein used in your cycles at Extend Fertility and their degree of success.
All 3 rounds we used follistim and menopur at varying doses, as well as cetrotide. The first round used a lupron-only trigger. For the second round, I primed with estrogen patches with the rationale that it would help the follicles grow in cohort. I also started at a higher dose of follistim and used a dual-trigger to help the eggs mature. Third round we did the same as the second.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Extend Fertility.
I really only spoke with the nurses over the phone when they gave me instructions, and when I came in for my surgery. However, they were always knowledgable and answered any questions I had as they came up. Anything more complicated regarding questions about protocol, they would let me know they would relay to Dr. Klein and would call me back with an answer. They were consistent and reliable - I don't think I ever had to call to follow up on anything.
Describe your experience with Extend Fertility.
I think Extend is great at what they do. The office is clean, the staff is efficient, and it is run like a well-oiled machine. They are so much more affordable than other clinics in the city, but the doctors and staff are top notch. As I mentioned, before deciding on Extend, I went to one of the "top" research clinics in the city, and while I was ready and willing to pay 14k for at least one round of egg freezing, I had a really bad experience with the doctor relaying the wrong information and doing so in a rude a callous way. I am so glad I did my research and found Extend. I was able to do 3 rounds for about the same amount of money as one round of egg freezing elsewhere, with an amazing team, much better experience, and great results. They're really a great team - even the embryologists emailed me after I had questions the nurse couldn't answer. Advice to a new egg freezing patient: do your research - on the doctors, the lab, and the clinic. Understand how many eggs you want to freeze going into it, and how many cycles that may take. Make sure you feel comfortable with your doctor and the team you're working with - it's a stressful process, so do your best to limit additional stress as much as you can by making sure you feel you're in good hands.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility.
Each cycle was between $5k-6500. I know their prices have changed since the first time I was there, but each time I paid I was fully aware of the payment, and that was the only payment I had to make to the clinic which I appreciated. I know other clinics charge additional fees for blood work, consults, anesthesiologist, etc. I had to pay for my medications separately, which is standard. I paid out of pocket, and appreciated knowing this fee covered everything as it was one less thing to worry about during treatment.

I am especially appreciative for a specific out-of-the-box decision he [Dr. Joshua Klein] made during my treatment that I believe contributed to the success of my first IVF cycle with him. I didn't feel like there were cookie-cutter protocols, but rather that each patient's success was given adequate thought...cares genuinely about each patient and it shows in his communication, responsiveness and throughout every step of the journey. I have never been disappointed.
I liked the extend fertility clinic. It's nicely designed! When you walk in for monitoring in the morning, you are greeted warmly (it's not a cold silent room like waiting rooms in fertility clinics are known for). Most of the staff knows you. Things run efficiently. I liked that there weren't set appointments for monitoring, you can just come in within a certain time range, at your convenience...Jordana, my IVF coordinator was extremely helpful and able to answer my questions throughout the process. She was super organized and helped with all the long-distance logistics too.
How was your experience with Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility?
Though there are plenty good doctors on the West Coast, there are none I found as caring and skilled as Dr. Klein. There is nothing like the peace-of-mind and reassurance that comes with fully trusting that your doctor has your best interest in mind. Personally, if I had to choose between a doctor who was extremely skilled, had great success rates, professional etc. vs a doctor who is kind caring and gentle - I would opt for the former, a doctor whose expertise I can rely on completely. But the greatest gift for me was that I didn't have to choose. He excels in both areas. I was comfortable to bring up any questions that I had and always received a clear and thorough response. He's fully present when he's with you and takes his time to explain things thoroughly.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility?
Not only does Dr. Klein stand "head & shoulders" above other Reproductive Endocrinologists that I've seen but he stands out among any doctor I've known. Dr. Klein cares genuinely about each patient and it shows in his communication, responsiveness and throughout every step of the journey. I have never been disappointed.
Describe the protocols Joshua Klein used in your cycles at Extend Fertility and their degree of success.
Although I do not remember the specific medications, I do remember feeling pretty decent throughout stimulation. I am especially appreciative for a specific out-of-the-box decision he made during my treatment that I believe contributed to the success of my first IVF cycle with him. I didn't feel like there were cookie-cutter protocols, but rather that each patient's success was given adequate thought.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Extend Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Valerie, Stephanie)
Jordana, my IVF coordinator was extremely helpful and able to answer my questions throughout the process. She was super organized and helped with all the long-distance logistics too. Most of our correspondence was by email. The nurses were great - everyone knows who you are. Always got a call from them pretty early in the day with the medication instructions, plus a clear email. If I had a question for them, I'd call and get a call back pretty quickly usually. Being able to email them would've been nice since often when I called they were on the phone with other patients, in a meeting etc - but it was fine, since they would call me back quickly. And if I ever had a very pressing question or situation and a nurse wasn't available that minute, there was always someway somehow that someone would be able to help me. As a team, they all cared.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Joshua Klein at Extend Fertility.
Compared to other clinics they are significantly cheaper - and very transparent about costs. No surprises. Medications cost me even less than they projected.

I met with [Dr. Bat-Sheva Maslow] when I first was thinking about starting the process and she was very clear about what I should expect and answered all my questions, she also called in a few days after my retrieval to check in and answer any other questions, which really made me feel like I was in great, caring hands...It was nice to start and end with Dr. Maslow, because of the familiarity. Also, she was very clear about expectations and had no problem answering all of my questions...
The staff at Extend Fertility as a whole was amazing. Everyone was so caring and had no problem answering questions...Lovely and caring staff. Good communication. Clean and organized facility. The nurses did a great job with communicating next steps and answering follow up questions. During treatment for egg retrieval it is a lot monitoring and blood work, but Extend Fertility was efficient, so that even when I had to go to work afterwards, it was a huge stress. I only wish that they had an Extend Fertility also in Brooklyn...I saw Dr. Guarnaccia and Dr. Maslow. Dr. Guarnaccia preformed my medical scan as well as my retrieval and Dr. Maslow met with me for my final follow up.
How was your experience with Bat-Sheva Maslow at Extend Fertility?
Dr. Guarnaccia is amazing. He performed my medical exam as well as my egg retrieval. He was so professional, but personable. I felt very comfortable asking questions and he was very clear with expectations. I truly felt like I was in great hands with Dr. Guarnaccia and I was. After the retrieval, I had almost no pain and the procedure went very smooth. I would highly recommend Dr. Guarnaccia to anyone considering egg retrieval. Dr. Maslow was great. I met with Dr. Maslow for my initial consultation and she reached out to follow up a few days after my procedure. It was nice to start and end with Dr. Maslow, because of the familiarity. Also, she was very clear about expectations and had no problem answering all of my questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Maslow to anyone considering egg retrieval.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Bat-Sheva Maslow at Extend Fertility?
Feel comfortable asking questions, because they both do a wonderful job making the patient feel comfortable and outlining clear expectations.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Bat-Sheva Maslow at Extend Fertility?
During my visits to Extend Fertility I saw Dr. Guarnaccia and Dr. Maslow. Dr. Guarnaccia preformed my medical scan as well as my retrieval and Dr. Maslow met with me for my final follow up. The process went very seamless and I had all of my questions answered. Dr.Guarnaccia is wonderful. I felt very comfortable under his care, especially for the actual egg retrieval. Following my procedure, I had no pain and the aftercare plan was very well communicated. I met with Dr. Maslow when I first was thinking about starting the process and she was very clear about what I should expect and answered all my questions, she also called in a few days after my retrieval to check in and answer any other questions, which really made me feel like I was in great, caring hands. I would highly recommend both doctors!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Extend Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Molly Spilka, Tamar Tenenbaum)
The staff at Extend Fertility as a whole was amazing. Everyone was so caring and had no problem answering questions. The communication was great during my procedure which made me feel so much more comfortable. Tamar my fertility advisor is amazing. She made me feel much more at ease each step, because she answered all of my questions and was very caring. Molly the nurse I worked with is also amazing. She clearly and thoroughly showed me how to mix and administer my medication. She took her time in explaining and answering any questions. If it was not for her, I do not think I would have been as comfortable administering my medication.

Dr. Maslow was realistic and optimistic at the same time. She explained the stats but was willing to go for it. She was concerned about my financial obligations and therefore took her recommendations seriously. She understood my wants and was excited to try... I saw [her] in person at all critical points...put me on a full stim course to try for IVF. I only produced 1 follicle so we moved to IUI because of COVID-19
Great small clinic [at Extend Fertility]! Short wait time, attentive and responsive staff. Billing explained well. I just wish there was better follow up after my cycle failed...The nursing staff is patient and kind. I wish I had had an assigned nurse for all questions...Low cost in comparison to other NY clinics!! $1700 for IUI. $11K for IVF. Affordable...All the Drs that I met were lovely

Dr. Maslow was realistic and optimistic at the same time. She explained the stats but was willing to go for it. She was concerned about my financial obligations and therefore took her recommendations seriously. She understood my wants and was excited to try! We were derailed by COVID-19 and decided to do an IUI rather than a risky 1-2 follicle retrieval at that time. The only one disappointing this is that no one called me from the office after I called to say that the cycle failed.

She’s wonderful!

Dr. G set realistic expectations so that I could plan accordingly. He told me I would get 7-14 eggs per cycle, so I knew going in that I would require two cycles. I ended up getting results that were better than expected, but I appreciated that he was straightforward. I also appreciated that he never tried to sell me egg freezing as a guarantee or insurance.
I chose Extend not only because it is less expensive than other clinics in Manhattan but also because it has a state-of-the-art lab. Thaw survival rate and embryo conversion rate are all very important for the process down the road. I hope others do their due diligence before choosing a clinic...I paid around $10,000 for both cycles minus the cost of medications.
