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. Fritz from my first visit was very professional, knowledgeable and kind. He explained all the treatments in detail. He made me feel comfortable. Dr. Fritz always took the time to listen to me and answer all my questions. He also always took the time to call me back when I would leave messages for him...took 81 mg baby aspirin once a day. 1 ml progesterone in oil shots daily. Estradiol 2 mg twice a day and synthroid 25 mcg twice a day...
The team [at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York] is very helpful, knowledgeable caring and compassionate...The only thing is that there was some occasions that the line would be busy and I would have to sent emails to get my questions answered...The nurse was nice and helpful.

He [Dr. Fritz] reviewed all of my records and explanations as to what happened with my prior clinic, gave me a timeline of testing and treatment, explained my diagnosis, and monitored me very carefully throughout my IVF cycle. He answered all of my questions and never made me feel badly for asking many questions, even if some were repeats. He recognized I was in a very difficult situation, always took the time to explain our options, and gave his recommendations as well...
NYU was great overall. The insurance coordinator was communicative regarding my insurance issues and the medication coordinator was good, although sometimes I had to follow up regarding my medications and refills. The wait-times for monitoring were not bad and you see all three doctors who practice in the Brooklyn office as they work on different days. Just note for any procedures (retrieval, transfer) you have to go to the Long Island office...

I would highly recommend Dr. Fritz.

Ask a lot of questions! Especially regarding potential side effects of treatment/procedures.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Fritz understood I was in a very dire situation as I had just come from another clinic with failed after failed treatment.

He answered all of my questions along the way and didn't set unrealistic expectations.
Describe the protocols Rani Fritz used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
We did an IVF cycle using menopur, GonalF, and Cetrotide/Ganirelix. I was put on a low dose b/c of my diagnosis and was monitored very closely. The hyper-stimulation lasted about three weeks until my egg retrieval. We then froze embryos, did genetic testing, and did an artificial transfer.

Elena and the rest of the team was very good at checking in with me every visit, both physically and emotionally, and making sure I understood my progress. She answered my questions (whether in-person or via email) and reached out when I wasn't feeling well or had an urgent question.

Dr. Fritz was so thorough with his explanations. No question was discouraged. His consultations, whether on the phone, virtually, or in person, were never rushed. He gets to know all his patients and their situations very well...He is a solutions oriented person and you can tell his treatment plans are well thought out and individualized. Infertility is very difficult, but with him I always felt like I had someone that valued my time and efforts. His presence is also so calming...
I loved that Elena [nurse at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York] always sent me message with injection protocols and other information I needed via the NYU Symantec Encryption Server. I got an mail alert about it and was able to refer to these emails at anytime...Monitoring was done before 10AM. It was great and allowed me to get to my job quickly...
How was your experience with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Fritz is the best doctor I have ever met. He is a solutions oriented person and you can tell his treatment plans are well thought out and individualized. Infertility is very difficult, but with him I always felt like I had someone that valued my time and efforts. His presence is also so calming. Until I starting seeing Dr. Fritz, I didn't realize how important this characteristic is.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Be on time for the Brooklyn appointments. Take public transportation (subways) there. The traffic there is bad. They do monitoring until about 9:45am.

Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York. (Assigned nurse: Elena)
I loved that Elena always sent me message with injection protocols and other information I needed via the NYU Symantec Encryption Server. I got an mail alert about it and was able to refer to these emails at anytime. I always kept my laptop screen open when I was taking all these injections. I hate when doctor's offices only do phone calls. It's so easy to hear something incorrectly or misunderstand what is said. I love that Elena always sent messages in this way.
Describe your experience with NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
It was very good to have an office in Brooklyn. It was very easy for me to hop on a train to get to work later. They had a good bathroom and filtered water and cups available. Sometimes you will see other doctors instead of Dr. Fritz. They take turns since Brooklyn is more of a satellite office. The other two doctor there are also good though - Dondick, Goudas.

Dr. Fritz, from our first appointment, was extremely thorough, with what test we would need to do and what our next steps would be. In addition he would explain to my husband and I what the success rates where so we didn’t put additional pressure on ourselves...I felt absolutely comfortable and open to share all of my concerns about each test or procedure. Even when I was unsure of what I wanted to do Dr. Fritz did not pressure us to make a decision...
Dr. Fritz and his entire team [at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of NY] all were on the same page and made every visit more than comfortable. As a new patient I would say come with all of your questions and the entire staff would assist you...Elena was my primary nurse and like Dr. Fritz she was thorough about the plan he had in place. Elena emailed and/or after every visit once my blood work was returned. In addition if I needed clarification on medication or dosage she was available. Elena was patient and always positive. In addition Laverne was the only nurse within the whole RSNY that made the multiple injections all seem like a pinch
How was your experience with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Fritz always made my husband and I feel comfortable. He explained each procedure and what we needed to do next. In addition he provided a wide variety of options for us to choose. Dr. Fritz was very compassionate and made us feel like he was with us whether it was good or not so good test results. I felt absolutely comfortable and open to share all of my concerns about each test or procedure. Even when I was unsure of what I wanted to do Dr. Fritz did not pressure us to make a decision. During our first transfer we weren’t successful and Dr. Fritz went back to the drawing board and tweaked out a better plan for us. And his plan worked, we are pregnant! My last day with Dr. Fritz was bitter sweet. We are ecstatic about our pregnancy yet sad that it would be our last day coming to his office. In addition Dr. Fritz didn’t just send us off. He sent us with a detailed plan in addition to notes for my ob-gyn.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Listen to all of his recommendations even if you think you won’t need a specific test done. If Dr. Fritz suggested it get it done. You will thank him later on. Also you are not a number with Dr. Fritz you are a person who he listens too and does his BEST for his patient.

In addition his Nurse Elena, Barbara, Laverne and Lishon were all helpful too.
Describe the protocols Rani Fritz used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
First we decided to get a few test done and Dr. Fritz suggest we do an ERA and I remember telling him my lining is good. Boy was I wrong after our first transfer failed. I decided to do the ERA which gave Dr. Fritz a more precise day to transfer the embryo. Which worked, we also got the PGA done on all embryos to make sure the embryo we chose to transfer was healthy. Dr. Fritz also suggested we do ICIS I’m not sure of the name of the test but it was a way of obtaining the nest sperm from my husband sample and mixing it in a specific machine.

Although they are busy at times, I did not feel rushed and felt that they got to know me...great location, great doctors, great nursing staff, clean and comfortable atmosphere, great communication.

[Dr. Rani Fritz] spoke to me in a way that made me feel that I was an active participant in my care and treatment course...His demeanor when he walks into a room automatically calms the air and when he counsels you, you automatically feel at ease with the journey that you're about to embark on...clearly explained to me the risks, benefits, and alternatives in a manner that was easy for me to comprehend.
They [Nurses at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York] are THE team that I would want at every doctor's office. Each person had a specific job, but everyone worked together and helped each other when needed. They made their patients feel like a part of a family. I didn't feel like just another patient in the office. Every part of the team knew the name of every patient (without looking). I don't know how they do it-- but they did!
How was your experience with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Fritz was a physician that understood the pains and frustrations of why patients need to see an infertility specialist. His demeanor when he walks into a room automatically calms the air and when he counsels you, you automatically feel at ease with the journey that you're about to embark on. He spoke to me in a way that made me feel that I was an active participant in my care and treatment course. He clearly explained to me the risks, benefits, and alternatives in a manner that was easy for me to comprehend.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
I would write down all my questions and not feel afraid to ask them. Don't think that you're wasting all of Dr. Fritz's time with all the frivolous questions-- he is there to answer all of them. He certainly answered ALL of mine. And if there's an answer that I didn't understand, I'd ask my question again.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Fritz tailored his explanation to the patient and didn't use jargon that was unfamiliar. He took the time to re-explain things that I didn't understand. He understood the frustrations that I was having and he validated them while giving me viable solutions and treatment plans for my husband and I. His treatment plans were understandable and clear.
Describe the protocols Rani Fritz used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
I did IUI for several cycles and we spoke and prepared for possible IVF. However, I never started IVF as we were able to achieve our desired result.
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York. (Assigned nurse: Elena Langoria)
Elena, Lishon, and Laverne were phenomenal. They are THE team that I would want at every doctor's office. Each person had a specific job, but everyone worked together and helped each other when needed. They made their patients feel like a part of a family. I didn't feel like just another patient in the office. Every part of the team knew the name of every patient (without looking). I don't know how they do it-- but they did!
Describe your experience with NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
This clinic was warm, welcoming, and understanding. I came to see Dr. Fritz for a specific reason and I left understanding what the problems were, how we were going to address my infertility, and ultimately I achieved my desired result. Furthermore, the nurses and the rest of the care team were just phenomenal. It didn't feel like I was just another patient walking into a cold sterile clinic. I was person that needed help and I walked into a clinic that was warm, understanding, and empathetic to my needs.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Rani Fritz at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
We initially had problems with our insurance and paperwork. And the thought of the costs associated with fertility treatments were daunting. Furthermore, I also received a bill from insurance (in error) that was was quite unnerving. Luckily, Elena was able to help me with my bill and the financial issues with insurance. Furthermore, while we were considering IVF, she was able to put me in contact with the financial counselor prior to starting IVF to ensure that we wouldn't have any surprise bills in the future. She really went above and beyond her job title to help put me at ease with such a stressful aspect of infertility care.

Dr. Dondik is very kind and takes her time to explain everything to me and answer all of my questions. I do a lot of research and bring ideas and concerns to the table based on my research. She never feels threatened or annoyed by this. Rather, she engages me on my ideas or concerns, and walks me through her recommendations and shares research as to why she recommends specific things. I have had four transfers and so far four miscarriages. When she diagnosed me
It feels like a family [at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York]. Everyone knows me, that I am a teacher, my history of pregnancy loss, my husband, etc. They know this and are considerate and kind. They get me appointments ASAP and always help me book them in the early mornings so I can make it to my school and classroom on time. Because it is so small, sometimes it can run very behind (especially if the usual nurse or doctor is away). Other than that, it is always a wonderful experience.
How was your experience with Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Dondik does a good job at looking at the individual rather than throw you into a routine because that is how it is usually done. For example, I make excellent progesterone. I make it each month and don't need help making it or keeping it elevated. Because of this, Dr. Dondik suggested I do a cycle without synthetic progesterone at all. I felt confident in this decision because it not only addressed my need but also allowed me to take a more "natural" path (as natural as IVF and FET can get, anyway). Dr. Dondik is also very understanding and considerate. She talks through options with me based on her recommendations and also what I can do realistically financially. She is kind and compassionate. For example, because I suffer from recurrent miscarriage she comes into every OB ultrasound so that she can tell me right away if there is a problem. I appreciate this because there isn't a pause where the ultrasound tech has to go get her. Dr. Dondik is also supportive during difficult times (like my miscarriages). I was having a lot of pain and was struggling to cope with it. She walked me through different pain management plans and let me choose the one that sounded the best for me personally. I do wish Dr. Dondik did all of my procedures (such as egg retrieval and FET). However, my clinic is set up so that doctors take turns rotating on the OR and it depends on which day you need for which doctor you get.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Don't be afraid to advocate for yourself with challenging questions, ideas, or concerns. Also, don't be afraid to show your emotions. Dr. Dondik is capable and handles it all with grace and care.

Dr. Dondik is very kind and takes her time to explain everything to me and answer all of my questions. I do a lot of research and bring ideas and concerns to the table based on my research. She never feels threatened or annoyed by this. Rather, she engages me on my ideas or concerns, and walks me through her recommendations and shares research as to why she recommends specific things. I have had four transfers and so far four miscarriages. When she diagnosed me with the last miscarriage, she actually got a little bit teary herself. It showed me that she really cares for me as a woman who is struggling - not just as a name on a chart or as a statistic. Also, during my egg retrieval cycle, there was some frustrating news that came up with my blood work. Dr. Dondik took the time to call me herself and make sure I understood what it meant and my next steps. I felt very respected and seen.
Describe the protocols Yelena Dondik used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
Dr. Dondik had be doing an agonist protocol. It started with birth control for about two weeks. Then I started injections of Gonal-F and Menopur. In my previous cycle, my estrogen level got too high too fast so she started me on a much lower dose. This helped with my estrogen. Over the course of 13 days my doses increased slightly. On my last day of stims, my estrogen jumped from about 2000 to 5500 overnight. She called to tell me that with estrogen that high before a trigger and retrieval, I was at serious risk for OHSS and that we would move this cycle to a freeze all. I appreciated her being so upfront with me so I could prepare myself for a freeze all. Dr. Dondik had be trigger with lupron to help avoid the estrogen spike that would come with an hcg trigger. On the day of retrieval I had 21 eggs retrieved, 17 mature, and ended up with four 5 day blastocysts. One was "good" and the other three were "fair".
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York. (Assigned nurse: Elena )
Elena is calm, caring, and extremely efficient. At first, she can come off as a little cold and distant. However, when you need her to be there for you she is as warm, kind, and caring as possible. She is supportive of schedules (I am an educator and need early appointments and she does that whenever possible and explains to me when she can't and why). She knows me and my history and is extremely delicate with beta hcg results. She is also good at answering my many questions, calls me back (or sends a portal message) within 24 hours (but almost always the same day), and never minds me taking care of my needs (whatever they may be). I trust her with my information, my medicine, and my treatments whole heartedly.
Describe your experience with NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
My clinic is the smaller offshoot office which means it is generally the same staff each and every visit. I love this about the RSNY Brooklyn office. It feels like a family. Everyone knows me, that I am a teacher, my history of pregnancy loss, my husband, etc. They know this and are considerate and kind. They get me appointments ASAP and always help me book them in the early mornings so I can make it to my school and classroom on time. Because it is so small, sometimes it can run very behind (especially if the usual nurse or doctor is away). Other than that, it is always a wonderful experience.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
I have insurance that covers monitoring appointments, some tests (not PGT or sperm fragmentation), and two retrievals (but not transfers). So out of pocket costs for me in total is around 14,000$. This includes diagnostic cycles, three IUI, two retrievals, embryo/embryologists costs (including insemination, freezing, storage), and four transfers.
Describe Yelena Dondik's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
Dr. Dondik recommends one embryo if they are tested and test normal. However, in my two cycles I did not do PGT testing becuase my insurance didn't cover it. My first transfer with her I did one embryo. It resulted in a chemical pregnancy. In my second transfer I transferred two untested embryo. It resulted in a singleton pregnancy that miscarried at around 7 weeks (but it wasn't viable from the first scan at 5 weeks).

I rarely saw Dr. Trivax ... When I told him I would like to have more information because I felt like I was getting misinformation on the internet, specifically I had a question about cervical mucus, he said to me, " you're the kind of patient that if we could remove your head from your body, you'd be pregnant in no time." ...

I appreciate that they are not touchy feely; it's a group of strong women who never honey me but help me keep it together. The only bad experiences I've had is when they have to sub someone in from the Long Island office.
How was your experience with Bradley Trivax at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Trivax is very positive. He asked who I would like to deliver my baby with in our first meeting, which might be comforting for some women but was very odd to me. His manner is to focus on the quick and positive outcome of a baby. Very little information was given to me about my diagnosis and so I often turned to the internet. When I told him I would like to have more information because I felt like I was getting misinformation on the internet, specifically I had a question about cervical mucus, he said to me, " you're the kind of patient that if we could remove your head from your body, you'd be pregnant in no time." As a result, I was embarrasses and blamed my inability to get pregnant on overthinking. He asked me to leave things to the experts and not worry about it. After 2 medicated cycles and 5 IUIs, my acupuncturist asked if he had ever ordered an HSG test for me. He had not. I had to demand one. When I finally had the HSG, it showed one partially blocked tube but he had never even checked this. This was the moment that I realized that he was actually not being thorough and that I really began to doubt what was going on and the choices I had made for my care in this overwhelming situation.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Bradley Trivax at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Advocate for yourself and go with your gut. Make sure to find out what tests you need. A positive attitude is helpful but science is even more helpful.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Bradley Trivax at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
I rarely saw Dr. Trivax but when I did, he didn't talk specifically about my case but about how I would be pregnant in no time. I mainly saw the nurse and other staff. When I did have the opportunity to ask questions, he was not forthright with explanations and asked me to leave it to the experts.
Describe the protocols Bradley Trivax used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
I wasn't really provided a rationale. He told my husband and myself that our infertility was unexplained when, in fact, I have diminished ovarian reserve. So we started with medicated cycles and then moved on to IUIs since that was what our insurance covered. When he left the practice, he told me that my eggs are too hard for the sperm to penetrate. However, since I have never had an IVF procedure, this was entirely speculative.
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York. (Assigned nurse: Elena)
The nurse who runs the show is Elena and she is direct but kind. I have confidence in her. Merle does ultrasounds and is the reason I stayed even when I started having doubts because she is a charming and professional person who makes a very invasive experience one that I can handle. Laverne is the nurse who takes blood and is always nice to chat to. She always manages to get my blood despite my small veins. This team kept me at the clinic because they do the lion's share of the work and I knew I was lucky to have them.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
We had critical problems with billing. They assured us that IVF was completely covered by our insurance. This was incorrect. Even when I called to tell them that I believed they were wrong, they convinced me that I was mistaken. We thankfully realized the error was on their part as we were beginning an IVF cycle, which we then transitioned to IUI. Naturally, we were heartbroken by this confusion. The nursing staff was very apologetic but it seemed like an error that their billing department should be better skilled at given what is at stake for people. For the first 9 months we never received a correct bill and this was very stressful.

Each time Dr. Trivax was in the office and I had an ultrasound (not just blood work), we met to discuss my treatment... He's incredibly knowledgable and helped me to ovulate (I have PCOS) and instilled confidence I would conceive (but unfortunately had 4 failed IUIs)... it would have been nice to see him more than I did. The RSNY Brooklyn office is convenient to where I live, however it became clear early on that the Mineola office is RSNY's priority.

Describe your experience with NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
It's important to know that the Brooklyn office is a satellite location for RSNY with the Long Island locations are the primary focus where most procedures occur. I had to travel to Mineola on Monday morning for an IUI because there was no doctor available for my IUI in Brooklyn and there was always a possibility of needing to go to Mineola for treatment. This increased stress levels considerably.

with IUI I only paid copays. Testing was the same. Once we moved on to IVF we were very lucky to get a NYS grant for financial assistance. It was the only way we were able to make IVF happen. They processed our application quickly and without delay. I am so grateful to RS for making that happen for us! After the grant we paid a small portion of IVF cost and elective genetic testing on the embryos- about 8 grand.

Dr Trivax is patient and encouraging, regardless of how frustrated or disappointed I became due to failed cycles. I would highly recommend him. My only objection was the fact that I endured four miscarriages prior to him implementing a medication regimen of progesterone, steroids, round of antibiotics and Lovenox in order to prevent another miscarriage.
Clients [at Reproductive Specialists of New York] can be seen early morning, prior to work. The only complaint I have about the clinic is Dr. Bray's bedside manner. We ended up switching doctors from Dr. Bray to Dr. Trivax, halfway through treatments....I LOVE the staff here. From Michelle, office biller/manager, to Alina (sp?), head nurse, to Stacy and the ultrasound nurse, everyone was friendly, welcoming and incredibly supportive, especially when the tears started to flow. :)
How was your experience with Bradley Trivax at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr Trivax is patient and encouraging, regardless of how frustrated or disappointed I became due to failed cycles. I would highly recommend him. My only objection was the fact that I endured four miscarriages prior to him implementing a medication regimen of progesterone, steroids, round of antibiotics and Lovenox in order to prevent another miscarriage.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Bradley Trivax at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Ask ALL of your questions; none are stupid or irrelevant. Don't be afraid to advocate for yourself.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Bradley Trivax at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Trivax took his time to listen to my concerns and anxieties. He was also patient in answering my questions. Despite my feeling discouraged at times, he remained positive that our treatments would result in a positive pregnancy test and that I would carry to term.
Describe the protocols Bradley Trivax used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
I used Clomid for my first treatment cycle with Dr. Trivax (not my first treatment cycle). This resulted in positive pregnancy test and a miscarriage (chemical pregnancy-don't like that term) at 5w6days. The 2nd treatment cycle, the next month was non-medicated (no Clomid). Steroid and round of antibiotic started day of IUI procedure. Vaginal progesterone suppositories started two days after IUI. Lovenox started at first confirmed pregnancy blood test, two weeks post IUI.

Describe your experience with NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
Clients can be seen early morning, prior to work. The only complaint I have about the clinic is Dr. Bray's bedside manner. We ended up switching doctors from Dr. Bray to Dr. Trivax, halfway through treatments.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Bradley Trivax at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
I had a huge deductible to meet prior to insurance covering our IUI treatments, so my cost is likely more than others if you'v met your deductible or have a low deductible.

Ask questions and express any concerns. She [Dr. Mary Bray] takes concerns very seriously and wants to know if you're having a hard time emotionally. She will also make a significant effort to make sure you fully understand and are comfortable. She is cut and dry, which I can see would turn off some people, but it was her frankness that helped me make good informed decisions about my treatment.
The availability of early appointments [at Reproductive Specialists of New York] is great but it was annoying to trek to mineola for any necessary weekend appointments or transfers and retrievals. Lucily that didn't happen too often. They put in effort to communicate with your insurance agency and make everything as simple as possible...Dr. Bray is knowledgeable, up to date on research, and uses evidenced based medicine. She is obviously passionately engaged in her field. She adjusted my cycles quickly when unexpected things happened and was adaptable. I felt that she was the first doctor to accurately represent what my chances were for each cycle, all the while still being hopeful.

While Dr. Bray does not have a particularly touchy Feely manner she obviously cares about her patients, their success and we'll being. She made decision factors very clear but always respected your decision. I greatly appreciated the candor because I knew I could trust her and she wasn't just trying to make money off me or make me "feel better". She answers questions thoroughly as well and will take the time to explain and re-explain without trying to kick you out of the office.
Describe the protocols Mary Bray (retired) used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
We had to do a certain number of IUI cycles before insurance would cover IVF. I took a low dose of Femara to stimulate egg production each cycle which worked but I did not become pregnant. She informed us earlier that due to my diagnosis, IVF would most likely be the successful treatment. I did one egg retreval with injectables menapur, gonal f, and ganarelix. I was also put on estrogen and projesterone. The third egg transfer was successful with a natural cycle as I ovulated on my own and responded unpredictably to the estrogen.

I had two successful egg freezing/retrieval procedures with Dr. Fritz...As an African-American female, I had questions about the success of the procedure and medications used for my specific background and he answered every one with data and clear communication. Sometimes I had appointments when Dr. Fritz was not in a particular office, but he always followed up with me on my tests, scans and next steps.
Dr. Fritz and the office staff [at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York] were very professional, personable and timely with their responses. Directions to take my daily injections were easy and clear to follow. Sometimes it was hard to get in contact with a nurse after my procedure and I had to leave multiple messages with the messaging service. I would have liked to have a direct contact after my retrieval.

Dr. Fritz's strengths are that he is extremely up-to-date in the most evidence-based forms of fertility care but also uses his clinical expertise, observations, and patient's preferences to adjust treatment as needed. He is very patient, compassionate and an excellent educator/communicator. He responds promptly to email and phone calls (even after hours and when he is not on call) and takes his time with the patients during the appointments. He is optimistic but sets reasonable expectations.
NYU of Brooklyn [Langone Reproductive Specialists] is very organized and the doctors and staff are wonderful. It was easy to get an appointment and I almost never waited for more than 10 minutes. They were good at returning calls and emails, even after office hours. One thing to be aware of is that the office is only open five days a week. So, if you need to be seen on a weekend, you must be prepared to travel to Long Island...

Dr. Dondik took time with us, always explaining her recommendations in as much detail as we asked for. She was warm and empathetic and responded to our concerns with reassurance and helpful context. She also conveyed her passion for the field to us and inspired not just hope but also fascination in the science of reproductive medicine....As I didn't ovulate in the first cycle we tracked, I was given Femara (Letrozole) to stimulate ovulation. We did that for two cycles, inseminating during both. I got pregnant the second time.
Elena and the rest of the nursing and reception staff [at Reproductive Specialists of New York] were unfailingly kind, knowledgeable, responsive, helpful, and professional...We enjoyed and appreciated our time at the clinic. It's well run, clean, efficient, and beautiful. It's much smaller and more intimate than the previous clinic we went to in Park Slope. And the views are amazing!...There was some sort of mistake in scheduling our initial appointment, where the clinic had no record of the appointment that was made. They handled it very smoothly though and happened to have an opening, so I was able to be seen as planned.
How was your experience with Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?

Dr. Bray is a wonderful doctor...She’s very straight forward and doesn’t really sugar coat anything which to me is perfect. But for others it might come across as rough/harsh. She answers all my questions at all times. For the most part she’s been very conservative with my treatmeants which I’m ok with and every cycle she’ll increase my meds a bit... All in all, I would recommend her at any time. Although I haven’t been successful with having a baby. She’s really trying and you really can’t blame the doctors. They are there to assist as much as possible. At the end of the day it’s in God’s perfect timing.
Elaina [nurse at Reproductive Specialists of New York] works hand in hand with Dr. Bray. She’s awesome and has always been our go to with extra questions or concerns. She always always responds in a timely manner. Super sweet as well...It’s a beautiful office, with great staff.

Being that I visit the office 2 times a week most of the time they’ve become my second family.

I LOVED Bradley Trivax. He is amazing. He allowed me to partner in the process. He gave me his email address so I could ask questions whenever they come up. I don't know of ANY other RE that does that. He is amazing!!!...He was fabulous! Explained everything. Very gentle and patient. Wonderful sense of humor. Seemed incredibly caring and honest. I felt like he cared about me as a person and was willing to share his thought process about my treatment protocol. Very available to answer questions. I always saw him when he was in the office. I never "just" saw the nurse or lab technician, which I have heard happens at other practices.
I thought they [staff at Reproductive Specialists of New York] were great. I wish they did all procedures in Brooklyn but going to Long Island wasn't too bad because I didn't have to do it very often...I LOVED Bradley Trivax. He is amazing.

Dr. Bray came off as very uncaring...only seemed interested in convincing me to use donor eggs and as soon as I objected, she tore up the sheet she was writing on and said, we have nothing further to discuss. If you're not onboard with the whole donor egg recommendation, she doesn't want to be bothered with you anymore...doesn't seem to have time to investigate why you may be having an issue with your fertility...

It felt like a cattle call...I showed up for a scheduled appointment, and was told that the appointment was canceled...why didn't someone call me to say that?
How was your experience with Mary Bray (retired) at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Bray came off as very uncaring and wasn't concerned about actually providing any semblance of assistance in getting to the bottom of why or what steps could be taken in order to improve your fertility. If you're not there to use a donor egg, you may as well just get up and walk out, or she will!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Mary Bray (retired) at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Just don't go! Seek out someone who cares and is willing to work with you, even if you may have diminished ovarian reserve. You CAN still conceive with your own eggs using the right protocol, contrary to what Dr. Bray would have you believe.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mary Bray (retired) at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
While speaking with Dr. Bray, she only seemed interested in convincing me to use donor eggs and as soon as I objected, she tore up the sheet she was writing on and said, we have nothing further to discuss. If you're not onboard with the whole donor egg recommendation, she doesn't want to be bothered with you anymore. She doesn't seem to have time to investigate why you may be having an issue with your fertility. All she cares about is getting you to pay for donor eggs.
Describe the protocols Mary Bray (retired) used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
The first time I saw Dr. Bray, which was around 2009, the only thing done was an ultrasound which revealed I was ovulating, and I was then told that I needed to BD that night. This resulted in a chemical pregnancy. After my blood work-up in 2017, it revealed a high FSH level and based on that she said the only way you will get pregnant is with donor eggs. I said I don't want to use donor eggs, she subsequently got up and walked out. I guess the appointment was over at that point.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Mary Bray (retired) at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
I only had basic blood test performed, which tested for fsh, lh, progesterone, etc., and it seemed pricey. Looking over a bill I received from them, $70 for each of those tests. Very expensive when I can get a fsh/lh test for $38.

I showed up for a scheduled appointment, and was told that the appointment was canceled. Well, why didn't someone call me to say that? Why do I have to waste my time, show up, before someone can tell me this! Very unprofessional!

How was your experience with Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
After 3 years of trying to conceive and a miscarriage, I wanted to work with a doctor that would give me the attention, care, and wisdom that every man and woman deserve on this difficult and personal journey.
