Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Nurses were incredible at the Fertility Institute of NJ and NY. They were always very nice, attentive, and very knowledgeable. I always had a million questions, that could drive anybody crazy, but they always listened, and answered them even if it was the tenth time I asked it.
How was your experience with Inna Berin at Fertility Institute of New Jersey?
Dr. Berin is an amazing doctor, and I've seen a lot of them in our area, since I've been struggling with infertility for several years. It's always emotional to talk about it to anyone, and Dr. Berin understood perfectly well my situation and made me feel very comfortable, and I felt from the first visit that she really cares about her patients, and I truly felt that I'm no longer just an "item on an assembly line in some factory", and that I'll be well taken care of, and that my dream of having a family will come true. I am convinced that she's got a true healer's gift, and where all have failed with me, only because of Dr. Berin I became a Mommy this year of a beautiful baby girl!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Inna Berin at Fertility Institute of New Jersey?
I know how stressful it is, and I can assure you that you don't need to worry and be in great hands. Just don't delay it, since every day counts, and go see her as soon as.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Inna Berin at Fertility Institute of New Jersey.
They were very reasonable, and were willing to work with my situation, which is rare these days.

The only thing I found confusing [at Fertility Institute of New Jersey] was that when the nurses called back with results - they didnt always match what I had been expected to be told based on what the doctor told me. I found the clinic atmosphere to be super positive and helpful overall...Dr. Levine took the time to patiently explain all details of the procedure. His office is set up beautifully and makes you feel like you are visiting a spa- not like you are waiting in a gross doctors office. The staff is all super friendly and warm and helpful.

Describe the protocols Zalman Levine used in your cycles at Fertility Institute of New Jersey and their degree of success.
Dr. Levine used Letrizole for me as I have PCOS. He initially started with a lower dosage of letrizole but when I did not ovulate he adjusted the dosage to 10 mg. My body did respond to the 10 mg of letrizole and I ovulated 2x from that. He preferred to start with letrizole as their are less side effects and less risk of multiples.

Describe the protocols Zalman Levine used in your cycles at Fertility Institute of New Jersey and their degree of success.
The first two IUI's I used clomid, and then lectrozol because I did not react well with clomid. The fresh embryo transfer was unsuccessful but my second frozen one was great. I was closely monitored. The first few weeks were spent ruling out genetics and other issues. He understood my haste for wanting a baby but we were patient!
