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. Zapantis is kind and knowledgable in his profession. However, he is not always present for office visits and often you are seen by his NP. Something I would have liked to see more of from Dr. Zapantis, however is more explanation of his recommendations going forward after failed treatment. I had to call to make an appt to discuss the next step and they were surprised when I asked to speak to the doctor about my options instead of just jumping to the next IUI cycle. I believe the nature of this work must be difficult however, and he does show compassion and does his best to present you with the facts. He also frequently cites medical literature however still presenting it in laymans terms. He has good bedside manner and has always been kind.
Staff [at New York Reproductive Wellness] is very nice and efficient with making appointments. Billing department was unsure of how much my out of pocket costs would be, even after verifying my insurance. I only was able to find out the costs after submitting to insurance.... Dr. Zapantis NPs are awesome, they are constantly communicating with you and preparing you for the next step.... Dr. Zapantis is kind and knowledgable in his profession. However, he is not always present for office visits and often you are seen by his NP.
How was your experience with Gregory Zapantis at New York Reproductive Wellness?
Dr. Zapantis is kind and knowledgable in his profession. However, he is not always present for office visits and often you are seen by his NP. This is not a bad thing by any means, just thought I would mention it so you would know what to expect. His NP (who's name i will leave out since review is about Dr. Zapantis, however I believe deserves recognition) was always great with performing ultrasounds, guiding me through the entire process and even doing my first IUI. Dr. Zapantis is present mostly for the initial consultation and then 1-2 visits before the HCG injection. He did perform the 2nd IUI, and have to say it actually hurt a little more than his NP lol..Nothing to really mention or complain about though, really only a little cramping. I'm not sure if this holds true for IVF though since I only did 2 IUIs. Unfortunately both IUIs resulted in negative pregnancies but the process was made a little smoother with the NP, MA and office staff's help. Something I would have liked to see more of from Dr. Zapantis, however is more explanation of his recommendations going forward after failed treatment. I had to call to make an appt to discuss the next step and they were surprised when I asked to speak to the doctor about my options instead of just jumping to the next IUI cycle.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Gregory Zapantis at New York Reproductive Wellness?
Decide whether you want genetic testing done before you go in to the office. I have been to 2 different RE's who have both recommended it, so I'm sure Dr. Zapantis is not alone in ordering it as part of the initial workup. However even after explaining my reasons for wanting to defer the testing (mostly due to cost and there not being any genetic diseases in the family etc) he convinced me to do it and I'm stuck with a tremendous lab bill. Remember it is your choice. Although I'm sure genetic testing can aid in some people's decision process, it does not tell you anything about why you are infertile or your chances of a sucessful pregnancy. To think, how many people get genetic testing done who concieve naturally? Also, they offer you genetic testing once you are pregnant so you can be informed of any issues at that time.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Gregory Zapantis at New York Reproductive Wellness?
office staff is always very nice. Dr Zapantis and his NPs are always very compassionate and kind.

95% of my appointment Dr. Zapantis was the person I saw. When my transfer failed he called himself to discuss our next steps and was very sincere...is very knowledgeable and listens to your concerns. He takes his time with appointments and explains every thing so you can understand what is going on. You never feel like a number. I didnt even need to make a follow up appointment to speak with him, as he called as soon as he had my results.
[The nursing staff at New York Reproductive was] Very warm, felt like they really wanted the best for you...Everyone is very nice and helpful. Sometimes you need to call more then once as the office is small and they are busy. Sometimes there is a long wait. I was with a clinic where everything was done at that location, which was great. Dr. Zapantis does retrievals and transfers at a different location.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He [Dr. Zapantis] was positive and optimistic as if I was approaching IVF for the first or second time, vs several rounds in. The positivity made me feel good, but I'm also searching for answers and productive input... He is not a pushy person at all, so it's good to come with questions so you can flush out more info that might not otherwise come up...he suggested I try an alternate, medicated protocol that could be beneficial...was very, very nice which means a lot in this process.
The staff [at New York Reproductive Wellness] was friendly and kind. They were really upbeat, which can be nice, but sometimes makes me feel a little uncomfortable in this situation. It's a fertility clinic, not a nail salon. I guess I'm just sad to be there, so it's hard to manage that with so much cheeriness. I also felt like the protocol for a new patient was very black & white. Lots of paperwork to fill out and no option to request a consultation without an exam. It was an (expensive) package deal.
How was your experience with Gregory Zapantis at New York Reproductive Wellness?
Dr. Zapantis had a pleasant "bedside manner" and was very friendly and polite. He also didn't make me feel rushed. On that note, I had to wait an hour to see him, BUT I was told that he was running behind because another new patient was taking longer than expected. And to be honest, that was less offensive to me because I can understand how that might happen (none of us want to feel rushed, right?) When it was my turn, I appreciated that he was efficient in speaking honestly and directly to me about my situation, while also allowing me ample time to give details and ask questions. Though it sounds generic to say this, he was clearly a very nice man. My one issue -- particular to me -- is that I am presenting a more challenging case (apparently) and I didn't feel like my issues were addressed in that context. I've met REs who get my info and seem to want to dive in as if I'm a walking cold case, which I appreciate. And while I fully felt that Dr. Zapantis wanted to help me, I didn't feel like we uncovered any major new rocks to overturn. Maybe there wasn't anything else to add, but that was just my personal feeling which made this consultation/exam a little different. He was positive and optimistic as if I was approaching IVF for the first or second time, vs several rounds in. The positivity made me feel good, but I'm also searching for answers and productive input. I would absolutely continue treatment with him based on his personality and apparent expertise, but it's hard for me to say more about his approach as I've only had one solid consultation and exam with him.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Gregory Zapantis at New York Reproductive Wellness?
I am glad that I have seen additional doctors so that I could balance out what they advised against what Dr. Zapantis suggested. All my docs have been different, and the more you know as a patient, the better. It was helpful to hear what matched up with Dr. Zapantis' pov and where he felt differently. He is not a pushy person at all, so it's good to come with questions so you can flush out more info that might not otherwise come up.

Describe the protocols Gregory Zapantis used in your cycles at New York Reproductive Wellness and their degree of success.
I've not had success through multiple rounds of IVF and transfers; he suggested I try an alternate, medicated protocol that could be beneficial.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at New York Reproductive Wellness.
I've only had 1 visit thus far, but the nurses were very friendly. They were generally upbeat, which can be a little weird (for me) in this type of practice, but that's just my personal feeling when at any fertility clinic. I'm generally not feeling super happy to be there. The nurses and staff were all kind and friendly.
Describe your experience with New York Reproductive Wellness.
In my limited experience with this clinic, the office was small but nice and modern. Clean. The staff was friendly, both on the phone and in person. I appreciated the honest feedback on appointment scheduling, rescheduling, a waitlist, and why the doctor was delayed. Dr. Zapantis was very, very nice which means a lot in this process. There is not a lot of privacy in the waiting room or communal areas, if that's important to you. It's just a smaller space.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Gregory Zapantis at New York Reproductive Wellness.
$400 consultation fee, which included an exam.
Describe Gregory Zapantis's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at New York Reproductive Wellness.
In our conversation about a future, hypothetic transfer, he seemed more conservative in his recommendation of how many embryos to transfer (which is my impression from most REs.)

When my hubby and I first sat down with Dr.Zapantis back sometime in August I had explained to him in 2017 I went through 4 major surgeries my kidney stones removed and it was a very scary time he then looked through my old test from when we first started fertility in another reproductive office he was very on top of what I had to say and was explaining certain things to myself and my hubby .The 3rd time we went back he wanted to know if I ever had a hysterscopy
They [NY Reproductive Wellness] were very helpful and not pushy and .And they diagnose my problem where others only cared about doing iui or ivf. They nurses listen to what I had to say and appreciate that. I was nervous in the beginning but felt comfortable when spoke to Dr.Zapantis...
