NYFI is a small clinic that only takes on a certain number of patients each year. There are only two doctors in the practice, and both of them are there every day. Dr. Fateh has been a fertility specialist for 40 years, but remains extremely in touch with the technological changes and medical advancements. The NYFI office itself is cozier than other clinics, and the quality of service is much higher. The office is on the UES and I traveled there from the West Village - not convenient, but completely worth it!

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Majid Fateh at New York Fertility Institute?
Dr Fateh saw me personally every time I visited. He spent as much time with me as I needed and always made sure to fully explain the process, progress and results.
Describe your experience with your nurse at New York Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Kara Caputo)
Kara, the nurse and office manager, was amazing. The receptionist however was quite annoying. While well intentioned I know, she degraded the overall experience in the office.
What specific things went wrong at New York Fertility Institute?
  • Lost appointments
How was your experience with Majid Fateh at New York Fertility Institute?
This is white-glove fertility treatment. After having a suboptimal experience trying to freeze my eggs at another clinic, I upgraded to see Dr Fateh. He spent nearly an hour on the first visit explaining the process to me and asking about my prior experience. In addition to addressing all my concerns, he clearly laid out what I would expect over the 10-14 day process. He saw me personally at each office visit and helped me understand how the cycle was progressing. The medications and dosages he prescribed did not change my mood at all compared to significant swings with my initial attempt. The day of the retrieval went very smoothly and I was able to successful freeze 13 eggs.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Majid Fateh at New York Fertility Institute?
Make sure you understand the fully loaded cost at the outset. This is NOT a low-cost option. Even knowing that, there are a number of hidden fees that kept popping up. The entire procedure, including medication, was $23K.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Majid Fateh at New York Fertility Institute.

It was very confusing because I was first contacted [by New York Fertility Institute] and told I owed nearly 1,000 for consultation, ultrasound and blood tests. This should have been mostly covered. After days of push back and follow up I believe I ended up paying 200...Very clean and modern looking. Small exam rooms. Made it very uncomfortable for my husband when I was receiving my internal ultrasound with 4 people in the room. The flabotimist left a massive bruise on my arm where she blew out my vein.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Majid Fateh at New York Fertility Institute?
I didn’t feel that I was evaluated using all other doctor information and my age. I was immediately told I needed IVF with no other options. It made me feel like a cash cow.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Very curt and matter of fact. Rude when following up about billing.
What specific things went wrong at New York Fertility Institute?
  • Lost paperwork
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Majid Fateh at New York Fertility Institute?
As previously stated, I felt like she only cared about the $$ not about the factual information (our test results) and lack of risk factors. I was told by my two previous doctors and internal scans that I had no blockage and a high folicale count. The doctor told me because I had a very slight genetic marker that may effect my grandchildren, we should immediately proceed to IVF. No other options we given.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Majid Fateh at New York Fertility Institute?
Make sure you ask lots of questions. Receive your paperwork (I was neve sent mine. I do t even know if her diagnosis is accurate). Ask for a second opinion.

Proceed immediately to IVF. This information was given to me over the phone while I was at work, which the doctor knew. Very insensitive.
