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. Maguire is the best doctor I have ever met. She saw something on my Fallopian tube and recommended removal before trying to have a baby. Her judgment was spot on- and her surgical skills remarkable. I had no pain from the surgery at all. She then made the process of having a healthy baby as an older mother smooth and seamless..
[my RMA of NJ nurse] was super organized and told me everything I needed to know and do...[monitoring appointments were very seamless. I went In before work and was out by 7 am...Strengths are the early morning hours. I was able to go before work each time so I didn’t have to take any days off of work. I also liked the privacy of the Clinic, they always covered your name when other people came so everyone could keep their activities private.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr Hong is great and time spent in person or on phone with her is valuable. Unfortunately, RMA of New Jersey is like a factory - packed waiting rooms, long wait times, huge layer of nurses you have to get through. When doing inseminations or transfers, feels like you see a different doctor every time.
RMA of New Jersey is like a factory...It's a big operation, got the sense they were disorganized. There's a lot of red tape to get anything done. You need to be really proactive about managing your care...Really crowded on weekends - 90+ min wait even just for bloodwork. Weekdays better but you have to go really early.
How was your experience with Kathleen Hong at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr Hong is excellent but the setup at RMA of NJ is very impersonal and doesn't make for optimal patient experience.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kathleen Hong at RMA of New Jersey?
You must be very proactive in managing your care. Dr Hong is great but you need to fight to get to her through the nursing staff, which can be difficult to deal with.

Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Jill Hendricks)
Very tough to get in touch with her. Impossible to even call directly. They have a secure email system which doesn't work half the time. Got the sense the nurses are really overburdened with too many patients. Hard to ever have a live convo on phone - endless voicemails!

I was a 40 yr old single woman with a blocked tube. IUI was recommended with the help of Clomid and an objectively that I dont remember. We did IUI on 2 co securities mornings and I was pregnant with twins on that first try...Dr. Kim was was great. I got the results I wanted quickly so I did not need to see him often. He was surprised at how good my eggs were and said I had the eggs of a 34 year old. I trusted him with all procedures.
They were great start to finish. I wish my actual procedure could have been done closer to me ( my office was in West Orange but IUI and genetic counseling was further away in Basking Ridge)...So organized it surprised me.

She [Dr. Marcy Maguire] prefers to do single transfer...She seemed calm and happy, well adjusted, and patient...She made eye contact, spoke clearly and honestly, and fielded our many questions with patience. She was upfront about success rates, which are low for us, and which were not explained to us when we did IUI and IVF in the other clinics we went to...Gonal-F, Ganirelix, Menopure. Then Ovidrell and Luprolide for trigger.
The clinic [RMA of New Jersey] has ample parking and is easy to get to. The office is organized. I did this during the coronavirus pandemic, and they revised their check-in protocols to accommodate new safety measures (a little later than I would have liked but I was being hyper careful weeks before it became mainstream). They remember who I am, and are friendly. The nurses were able to find my veins!!!...The hours were adjusted because of the coronavirus, so there was a longer window of time than normal, which allowed less congestion. For this reason I didn't have to wait long. Still one time I did have to wait over 20 minutes in the room, as the person monitoring me was on a patient call.

He [Dr. Drews] studied my medical history from front to back and gave me the raw honest truth while still being kind and gentle. He was patient with me while I asked questions and wanted me to fully understand the process. Don’t expect to hear directly from him through the course of treatment. He does communicate through your assigned nurse but your answers are never left unanswered!
Monitoring appointments [at RMA of NJ] were a set amount of hours in the morning before regular 9-5 hours which was very convenient. I barely waited for more than 20 minutes since I would get there at 6am when they opened. You are in and out without being rushed...Anne [nurse] was a great communicator. The whole nursing staff was friendly and warm...

He does communicate through your assigned nurse but your answers are never left unanswered!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Drews at RMA of New Jersey?

From the day I met dr. Maguire I trusted her 100%. Super personable, knowledgeable, professional, confident and humble. Out of 3 transfers she did 2 and both resulted in pregnancy...We could not be more happier with her care; her diagnosis and treatment were spot on, no adjustments no change of protocol or medication. We are forever grateful.
I think the [RMA of New Jersey] clinic is run well and professional. At times overcrowded but It did not affect the quality and care I received. Everyone seems to know what they are doing. From doctors, nurses through billing department and front desk staff. I have to compliment the acupuncture staff, they were excellent.

[Dr. Melissa Yih has a] Strong preference for single embryo transfer...She was flexible in scheduling and was kind, patient, and thorough when we met... We have embryos from our previous IVF round and were looking for someone to manage our upcoming embryo transfer. Dr. Yih was very flexible in scheduling our consultation appointment due to our work schedule and distance we needed to travel. During our appointment she was very kind and thorough. She reviewed our medical history and explained what the next steps could look like. We left feeling very comfortable and well informed.
Our insurance does not cover infertility. Our consultation [at RMA of New Jersey] was approximately $200 and our initial testing (blood/saline sonogram) was approximately $1,000...Overall the building and office is very nice. The staff were courteous and welcoming. Scheduling was easy and flexible. My visit was efficient and ran smoothly. All of the tests were conducted as they said they would be and we didn't run into any problems.
How was your experience with Melissa Yih at RMA of New Jersey?
We came to Dr. Yih because our previous doctor, Dr. Kaser, moved to California. We have embryos from our previous IVF round and were looking for someone to manage our upcoming embryo transfer.

Dr Kaser is compassionate and has great bed side manner. He took on my infertility case after 1 failed and 1 ectopic cycle. He was thorough and took his time with me. He is honest and down to earth...I received medical advice from an infertility specialist through a 3rd party program. Dr Kaser reviewed my report with me and incoporated some of the protocol in my cycle. He's also collaborated with other doctors at RMA on my case to have a second set of eyes assist with a very complicated case.
I feel that all doctors at RMA that I have met with are strongly against multiple embryo transfers. Yet Ive had 3 failed transfere with pgs tested embryos. We may consider putting in 2 if my 4th transfer fails...is a big organization and each department has their own responsibilities. My doctor and nurse communicate well and are on the same page. The finance department seems to be stretched too thin. It takes them a long time to reply to billing questions yet when you have to pay up front for a cycle they have a sense of urgency. The finance department lacks compassion and understanding of what the patients are going through. I would require special training for all finance or anyone for that matter who talks to patients. RMA should also invest is bringing on more support for the Finance department.
How was your experience with Daniel Kaser at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr Kasee is a great listener. He reviews all my records prior to meeting with me and always shows up prepared. He is a great colloborator. My situation is complicated because both my partner and I are healthy, no issues, except my age of 39. I received medical advice from an infertility specialist through a 3rd party program. Dr Kaser reviewed my report with me and incoporated some of the protocol in my cycle. He's also collaborated with other doctors at RMA on my case to have a second set of eyes assist with a very complicated case.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Kaser at RMA of New Jersey?
Do you research because Dr Kaser is a professional who wants his patients to be at the table making decisions with him. Come prepared with questions, he is very patient and will answer all your questions.

I was under Dr. Kaser's care for my 3rd FET. He had me take my estrace pills vaginally to increase the lining quicker and the standard progesterone dosage. Prior to the cycle he performed an ERA and endometrial biopsy to ensure we were transfering on the right day and there was no infection. Unfortunately my 3rd FET resulted in a negative pregnancy test and we will be changing the protocol significantly for my 4th

Found Dr. Kaser to be extremely involved with my case. When things weren’t going well he stopped all other clinicians from doing any testing and did it all himself even if it meant him coming to work at 6am just to see me. I found him to be genuinely disappointed when I was and really felt my pain through the process...He was super genuine and explained everything well. I would have liked to see him more frequently but that ended up happening when my case became more complex. He was good about returning phone calls and never rushed through the conversations.
I never waited long [for monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey]. I got there when they opened and was seen quickly for bloodwork and then for an ultrasound. I was often in and out in about 10 minutes...Clinic was fairly small but I liked that i got to know everyone by first name. They asked how i was, including the receptionist. They start to become familiar when you’re there a lot. They opened a new clinic in the middle of the process that was more updated and new, but with the same people. They were organized, easy to talk to

Dr Yih was very nice and knowledgeable. she always was forthcoming with information and answered our questions. She was usually easy to get a hold of if needed but sometimes I felt like she thought we were a lost cause and not given the same attention as younger patients...However, there were some very critical things that were over looked by her at the time of our first meeting which ultimately impacted our journey financially.
The appointments seem to run right on time. I don't remember ever spending more than 10 minutes waiting in the waiting room. They [RMA] also have a place on site that can draw blood or test semen right away. Another strength is that they have a nutritionist onsite several times a week too...My nurse did answer some questions if I called the clinic and she would call me back with the answer usually within a day. She would also email me if needed.
How was your experience with Melissa Yih at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr Yih was very nice and knowledgeable. she always was forthcoming with information and answered our questions. She was usually easy to get a hold of if needed but sometimes I felt like she thought we were a lost cause and not given the same attention as younger patients. Time is not on our side and she pretty much told us that too. I am a very optimistic person and always kept telling myself that this is possible even though times she acted like we were out of our league.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Melissa Yih at RMA of New Jersey?
Always stay optimistic even if she says there is little hope. Where this is life there is always hope. Ask a lot of questions and don't stop until you get the complete answer to your question even if it is not the answer you want to hear.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Melissa Yih at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr Yih was very straight forward. She did explain things to us and did take the time we needed and were not rushed out of the office. However, there were some very critical things that were over looked by her at the time of our first meeting which ultimately impacted our journey financially.
Describe the protocols Melissa Yih used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
Dr Yih only did 2 chlomid cycles with us because my insurance would not pay for the ivf at the time. I did a few FSH blood test to see if I still had viable eggs. although my numbers were going up they were still in the range of having viable eggs even though I was 45 years old. I feel she should have tried to take some eggs to freeze and or test to see if they were of a good quality. now that I am 50 I know that my eggs are not a quality that I could use them for my own ivf. Neither of the rounds of chlomid were positive. I was glad to try them because it gave me hope that it definitely could happen for us because if you don't try you have 0 chance of getting pregnant.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey.
My nurse did answer some questions if I called the clinic and she would call me back with the answer usually within a day. She would also email me if needed. She was nice but I still feel that we were not taken seriously because of our ages. when I would contact the clinic about having specific forms filled out I felt like I got the run around and one time we missed getting the forms to the Baby Quest grant people in time because of a miscommunication with either the nursing staff or the doctor
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
I like the location because it is only about 15 minutes from home and work which to me is a positive thing especially when my husband had to take in a semen sample. The appointments seem to run right on time. I don't remember ever spending more than 10 minutes waiting in the waiting room. They also have a place on site that can draw blood or test semen right away. Another strength is that they have a nutritionist onsite several times a week too.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Melissa Yih at RMA of New Jersey.
my insurance at the time only paid for diagnostic tests and not the actual ivf or iui but it did cover the meds like cholmid. although the first initial visit was about $300 that I didn't have the money to pay for and my fiancée had to pay for it until I could reimburse him (we were not married yet) and now that I have a better job with better insurance it covers most of the office visits and meds but because of the age limit on the mandate it will not pay for the IVF.
Describe Melissa Yih's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
Dr. Yih did discuss the eSET with us but didn't really comment if it was the best solution or not. I did a lot of research and found that the eSET was actually healthier for the mother not having the stress of carrying multiples and especially because my husband does not want twins.
What specific things went wrong at RMA of New Jersey?
  • Lost paperwork
  • Failed to inform you of changes in protocol
Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of New Jersey.
When we first went to RMA it was a good visit and we were excited to find out that we would be able to have a positive result however we were not married yet and for me to be on my husbands policy we had to get married. we planned our wedding in august and we met with Dr Yih in May. We did all the stuff needed to advance but she didn't tell us that the state of NJ had a mandate that insurance would only cover the IVF for women under the age of 46. I was 45 at the time and we got married just 2 weeks after I turned 46 and could be on my husbands policy. if we had known or had been told of this stipulation we would have gotten married in May and had everything done before the end of July. This information fell thru the cracks on every level, doctor, nurse, financial advisor which ultimately left us without financial support to continue the journey to have a child.

How was your experience with Daniel Kaser at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr. Kaser is exactly the doctor you want for any scenario, but especially for something as emotionally and physically draining as infertility. He is extremely knowledgeable, willing to listen to ideas, explains his methodology, pays attention to every minor detail, answers all questions (no matter how big, small, or ridiculous you may seem to think they may be), shares in the highs and lows, best personality for infertility. I could keep going on and on - so happy we were recommended to him.

Ask questions. Ask all your questions, don’t google answers, get answers from Dr. Kaser. He’s very knowledgeable, experienced, compassionate, and patient.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Kaser at RMA of New Jersey?
I was on a tough road that led me to Dr. Kaser. He was extremely compassionate, patient, non-judgmental, driven, positive when I couldn’t be, and had such determined reassurance for me. I was a mess when I came to him and he took the time to really listen and learn about me and together we worked for me to get my baby, and I am typing this as my almost 5 month old is sleeping across from me in his crib. Dr. Kaser knew I wanted to be informed and involved every step of the way and he made certain I understood each step. Always responsive and caring.
Describe the protocols Daniel Kaser used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
We began with comprehensive bloodwork and screening for both my husband and me. It was already decided I’d do a freeze all retrieval using my husband’s sperm. I took CoQ10 600mg daily, baby aspirin, and other vitamins to begin with. My husband also had to take meds. I had follistim objectively twice a day (I think 225iu twice a day), as well as lo dose hcg, microdose lupron, and a trigger shot. This was my fifth Retrieval (the precious ones were at another clinic). Due to my precious retrieval’s, Dr Kaser adjusted the timing to do it a little earlier since it seemed like a previous one was a little late. We did CCS testing and we had 4 genetically normal embryos - the most at one time ever. Next he texted my lining and discovered I’d need to do a transfer one day earlier than standard, and that served as a scratch to get the embryo to stick. For the frozen embryo transfer cycle, I used endometrin 3 times a day, methotrexate (I believe) for about a week, Valium day of transfer (to relax uterus) and laser acupuncture, and was successful the first transfer! I preferred not to know the sex until I got a positive result. It was amazing to get the call that it was positive! When I next met with Dr. Kaser for my scan we were both beyond thrilled. I then asked for the sex of the baby and he told me.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Hillary)
Hillary was on top of my care. I probably spoke more with her than anyone else. My communication with her was primarily email which I preferred since I feel it’s faster and I could always make sure my questions were detailed to my liking. I would ask her anything and everything and she would always respond with kindness and logic - which I always appreciated. She was also detrimental to my success.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
RMANJ is big. And they know how to run sufficiently. They opened early for monitoring and had a streamlined process to make sure everyone is seen in a timely manner. I never felt rushed with my doctors and always could ask all my questions. Due to my previous experiences I know to speak up for myself and I did, and they had no problem with that. The facilities are beautiful and clean, modern. (I’ve been to Princeton, Marlton, and Basking Ridge). Top of the line technology. Also, the transfer room was the best experience ever, having my husband with me, having the embryo brought in inside an incubator, seeing it all on a big screen - it was beautiful. They are huge, they do not treat you like a number when they are treating you. So many people go to them for a reason, they know what they are doing. When they first see you the have to start with some kind of care, their golden standard, and adjust and be flexible accordingly to find what works best with you. It works. For billing and meds - stay on top of it. Know your insurance, know your pharmacy, know your scripts. Follow up daily and twice daily if need be. Some people don’t have to work to get pregnant, some, like me, do. You need to be your number one champion and let RMA help you along the way.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
I at times felt rushed by seeing other women in the waiting room or elevator, but once signed in would always be taken within 10 minutes for blood work, and then within 10 minutes to the room (usually faster). The phlebotomists were friendly and did a great job finding a vein (mine are always so hard to find), the nursing staff was great, and even if I didn’t see my doctor, the one on duty always took time to go over and explain my ultrasound, the protocol, and answer all my questions.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Daniel Kaser at RMA of New Jersey.
I had to pay a $25 copay a few times before I met my out of pocket limit with insurance. Also the insurance I had covered unlimited infertility treatments and it covered my medicine 100% after meeting my out of pocket. I did have to pay $2500 for embryo testing, $600 for the ERA, and $200 for laser acupuncture day of transfer. Insurance also covered freezing and storage of semen and embryos.
Describe Daniel Kaser's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
He preferred eSet and I decided to go with his expertise. (Even though I so wanted to make sure I would be pregnant and was considering multiple embryo transfer. He was confident that a single embryo would work and he was right!)

...After the D&C, testing showed an unbalanced translocation. Since that was my third loss, Dr. Doherty wasted no time and had a karyotype done on us and found that I have a balanced translocation. With that, as relieved as I was to have an answer, I was terrified it was the end of the road for us. Dr. Doherty explained what this meant for us with compassion and was hopeful that with lots of eggs to work with and testing of our embryos, we would get pregnant with a healthy baby. We got ready for another retrieval and were again successful with 45 eggs retrieved this time! Six made it to testing and two were normal. I was again, grate
...Jennifer [Nurse at RMANJ] is THE best! She is calm and caring and on top of things. Jenn would call when she knew I was able to talk (I'm a teacher) and explained everything thoroughly every time. She answered ALL of my questions and calmed my fears when I lost it emotionally. Jennifer became part of my life and I looked forward to talking to her each day. She would even call in between procedures while we were waiting for results just to check in and say hello. She invested herself into our case and called on her day off to congratulate us. I will keep in touch with Jennifer- I love her!
How was your experience with Leo Doherty at RMA of New Jersey?
From our first meeting with Dr. Doherty we knew we were at the right place with the right doctor. He listened to our concerns and fears and answered all of our questions honestly and professionally. He set up a game plan that we were comfortable with and took it on with confidence. Our first retrieval was successful with 32 eggs retrieved and 3 embryos to freeze. I was thankful to have Dr. Doherty perform my transfer and was ecstatic to get the call from him saying I was pregnant! Unfortunately, at my 6 week ultrasound Dr. Doherty cautioned us that the baby's heartbeat was a bit slow. We came back two days later to find out it was barely there and the growth had stopped. We went back two days after that and saw Dr. Yi for the ultrasound which showed the faintest of heartbeats. Dr. Doherty personally called us that evening to see how we were holding up. That phone call meant the world to us. After the D&C, testing showed an unbalanced translocation. Since that was my third loss, Dr. Doherty wasted no time and had a karyotype done on us and found that I have a balanced translocation. With that, as relieved as I was to have an answer, I was terrified it was the end of the road for us. Dr. Doherty explained what this meant for us with compassion and was hopeful that with lots of eggs to work with and testing of our embryos, we would get pregnant with a healthy baby. We got ready for another retrieval and were again successful with 45 eggs retrieved this time! Six made it to testing and two were normal. I was again, grateful to have Dr. Doherty perform my second transfer which resulted in a positive pregnancy test! I was terrified that each ultrasound would bring bad news. Dr. Doherty comforted our fears and really helped us get through those first weeks without going insane. If I had a question, he answered it. If I had a concern, he addressed it. It was so bittersweet when we graduated from RMA and Dr. Doherty's care. Happy we made it this far, sad to leave Dr. Doherty and the RMA family that we had come to love.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Leo Doherty at RMA of New Jersey?
His calm and optimistic demeanor will get you through the good and the bad. Trust him!

Dr. Doherty always took the time to answer the MANY questions we had and he always did it with a smile. He is kind, caring, patient, and professional. Dr. Doherty made us feel like we were the only patients under his care and went above and beyond every step of the way.

She would even call in between procedures while we were waiting for results just to check in and say hello. She invested herself into our case and called on her day off to congratulate us. I will keep in touch with Jennifer- I love her!
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
Every staff member at RMANJ that I have come in contact with from the receptionists to the nurses to the financial coordinator have been fantastic to deal with. Smiles in the morning, friendly conversations, and personal attention throughout our journey will always be remembered. It is a large practice, but each person on the team always treated us with care and compassion.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
It was a well-oiled machine and did not interfere with work or my day.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Leo Doherty at RMA of New Jersey.
We were extremely lucky to have mostly everything covered by insurance. We only paid out of pocket for ultrasound co-pays, cryopreservation, PGD/CCS testing, and acupuncture before and after transfer.
Describe Leo Doherty's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
I was sure that transferring two embryos would give us the best odds. Dr. Doherty explained in detail the benefits of eSET with my age and BT. We are so glad we took his advice and transferred one embryo.

He [Dr. Doherty] and his assistants were always very responsive to all our phone and email questions, getting back to us often within an hour or two if during business hours or immediately the next morning if it was a non-urgent request in the evening. We had to undergo several procedures and each time Dr. Doherty described the procedures in detail as well as the impact to our timeline. Since Dr. Doherty is part of a larger practice (RMA), we did not see him every time at the Hamilton office. Instead we saw other doctors part of the practice for bloodwork and ultrasounds. However, we were OK with that because we didn't have any issues with any of the other doctors. In addition, if Dr. Doherty felt that it was important to meet us in person for a particular discussion, he would request that and we would see him directly...
Despite the size of RMA, we really do feel Marissa is our personal nurse and that she is 100% focused on only us. She shows great compassion towards our concerns and anxiety. She responds by email (our preferred method) often within an hour or two. She is always available for questions during bloodwork/ultrasound visits. She even spent 30 minutes teaching us how to perform the progesterone injections...
How was your experience with Leo Doherty at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr. Doherty has incredible "bedside manner" and is able to communicate down to the individual detail but with a very compassionate tone. He and his assistants were always very responsive to all our phone and email questions, getting back to us often within an hour or two if during business hours or immediately the next morning if it was a non-urgent request in the evening.

However, we were OK with that because we didn't have any issues with any of the other doctors. In addition, if Dr. Doherty felt that it was important to meet us in person for a particular discussion, he would request that and we would see him directly. Dr. Doherty was orders of magnitude better than our first doctor we saw at a different practice.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Leo Doherty at RMA of New Jersey?
Keep in mind RMA is distributed across multiple sites and you may not always see Dr. Doherty if you are at a satellite location. For us this wasn't an issue because Dr. Doherty was always very aware of our latest bloodwork and ultrasound and we were able to communicate often over email and phone.
Describe the protocols Leo Doherty used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
For us, Dr. Doherty started right on IVF preparation because we had multiple failed IUI cycles and a failed IVF cycle with another practice. We appreciated that he listed to our current state and was willing to pick up with the other practice left off. He also performed surgery twice to remove fibroids prior to the egg retrieval/transfer.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Marissa DiGiacomo)
Marissa has been amazing! Despite the size of RMA, we really do feel Marissa is our personal nurse and that she is 100% focused on only us. She shows great compassion towards our concerns and anxiety. She responds by email (our preferred method) often within an hour or two. She is always available for questions during bloodwork/ultrasound visits. She even spent 30 minutes teaching us how to perform the progesterone injections. We couldn't ask for a better nurse.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
Strengths: Their stats are strong for our demographic. They seem to have the latest technologies and some of the best surgeons on the team. They are great with phone, email, and in-person communication. We never need to wait more than 10 minutes during morning checkups. They have multiple offices making it convenient for our work commute. We haven't had a poor experience with a doctor yet and we've seen at least 5 of them. Weaknesses: Some may feel it's too large. It's several doctors and several offices. However, the relationship we built with Dr. Doherty and the nurse (Marissa) make it feel like a small practice where we get a lot of attention.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Leo Doherty at RMA of New Jersey.
The majority of our costs were covered by insurance except for the genetic counseling and genetic testing. We visited the dietian (covered), a genetic counselor ($100ish?), did laser accupuncture before/after a transfer ($200), and did the genetic testing ($2000ish?)

Dr. Kaser met with us for almost two full hours on our first visit. He is monitoring our current IVF cycle from NJ (we live in PA). He has called on several occasions to check-in, see if we have any questions and touch-base about any upcoming changes. I can't express enough how professional and thorough he has been with us.
The clinic [RMANJ-Hamilton] itself is a bit of a 'hole in the wall'. It is small, but I wouldn't let this put you off. So far our paperwork has been handled well, and all of our concerns have been addressed in a very timely manner.... Jennifer [a nurse] is really well organized and on top of everything. She has been really helpful in coordinating our treatment and has been really kind and pleasant on the phone.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Kaser at RMA of New Jersey?
We met with Dr. Kaser after a failed IVF with another RMA clinic. He was warm and friendly, but matter-of-fact and really detail oriented. He is incredibly professional and (while I'm not a doctor) really seems very competent. He was balanced in his assessment and reviewed all possible options with us. We really liked him immediately and felt very comfortable.

I conceived naturally and Dr. Doherty called me himself to congratulate me. When that pregnancy ended in a miscarriage he also called me himself to offer support and reassurance. I never feel pressured to do any treatment. I feel that he gives me all the facts and allows me to make my own decision.... He is honest, caring and compassionate. He tells all the facts even if you don't want to hear them which helps me be an informed patient.

She was blunt, but caring at the same time... Dr. Treiser was the primary doctor behind my treatment plan, however I did not see her for monitoring appointments.

They recommend IVF straight away, and in my case that was not the best course of action. I had more testing that should have been done, to realize it was a waste of $28K. I asked Dr. Jurema if there were more tests we could do after my 3rd miscarriage, and he recommended we do another cycle and just pay for the new advanced testing. I had already done testing and had 1 embryo, this recommendation did not make me feel confident and I changed direction after much research.
There are many doctors in the RMA practice. It's convenient when needing to schedule appointments, but morning monitoring felt like a chicken coup. You are just a number. I felt as though there could have been more testing on me, as I was not going through insurance, before making a huge investment in IVF...Strengths: reputation, multiple offices, resources Weaknesses: patients go to them, so they don't need to focus much on patients, the money is coming to them regardless

3 IUI's, 1st round with clomid then switched brands to Letrozole 1 IVF round after unsuccessful IUIs, were doing fresh transfer and was told 1 day before that they were freezing them instead to give them 1 more day to advance After miscarrying with IVF, insurance only covered IUIs. Although they were not successful, they were covered by insurance and we did 4 cycles. First round with Letrozole and developed vertigo like symptoms, we switched to injectables. Unsuccessful 4 IUIs to follow.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Anne)
Anne is no longer with RMA. She left during my IVF cycle, and I only found out when I visited the RMA office to do my loss panel due to my miscarriage. She didn't educate me on the medications, often times made me feel like a nuisance when I asked questions too. Staff during morning monitoring in the future, were great. The West Orange office staff is very nice.

After cycle 1 failed, we requested a meeting with Dr. Jurema in which we discussed options for cycle 2. After that meeting, again our access to him was restricted. In the middle of cycle 2 we were given wrong information by the doctor on staff resulting in another delay. When I requested to speak to Dr. Jurema about it I did not receive a call back for several days, and when I did he was short and cold saying that each doctor works with information they have in the moment and may not be fully versed in our case/history. We asked for more personalized care and communication, but it did not improve...
RMA NJ is a factory with little personalized care. We found nearly no positives with this clinic. Wait times were long for daily blood work, access to doctors was restricted, nursing staff or doctors of the moment were rarely educated in our personal journey. After two failed IUIs we were ready to move on to IVF and we knew that we could not go through that process at RMA...
How was your experience with Marcus Jurema at RMA of New Jersey?
In our first meeting with Dr. Jurema we felt confident and comfortable with an IUI approach after learning that we had unexplained infertility. Dr. Jurema was smart, polite and attentive during that meeting. At that time the facility was IVF NJ and at the beginning of our cycle I had one appointment at Dr. Jurema's office where I saw him and discussed day-to-day actions. After that, the facility merged with RMA. From that time on we were not able to speak to Dr. Jurema, nor were our appointments with him. We were given the doctor of the moment or the nursing staff for the rest of cycle 1 and cycle 2. During cycle 2, we requested that Dr. Jurema call us after we were given incorrect information by his colleague. When we did receive his call he was cold and short, providing very little understanding. We asked for more personalized care, which he was not able to provide. We emailed Dr. Jurema when we left the facility explaining that we were unable to continue due to the lack of attentiveness and personalization. Unfortunately it appears that Dr. Jurema is handcuffed by RMA, but we can't say for sure as we were only with him a short time before the facility transitioned.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Marcus Jurema at RMA of New Jersey?
Be prepared for very little interaction with him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Marcus Jurema at RMA of New Jersey?
IVF NJ transitioned to RMA during our time with Dr. Jurema. In that time we had to change office locations. Our history and paperwork did not reach the new system in time resulting in a delay of cycle 1. After beginning cycle 1, we had limited interactions with Dr. Jurema by design of RMA. We dealt only with admin and nursing staff on a daily basis, and for procedures or checkups requiring a doctor we were given the doctor on staff at that time. After cycle 1 failed, we requested a meeting with Dr. Jurema in which we discussed options for cycle 2. After that meeting, again our access to him was restricted. In the middle of cycle 2 we were given wrong information by the doctor on staff resulting in another delay. When I requested to speak to Dr. Jurema about it I did not receive a call back for several days, and when I did he was short and cold saying that each doctor works with information they have in the moment and may not be fully versed in our case/history. We asked for more personalized care and communication, but it did not improve. Cycle 2 was also unsuccessful and when we left RMA we sent a detailed note explaining our reason for leaving was due to the impersonal nature of the facility.
Describe the protocols Marcus Jurema used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
We agreed to move forward with an IUI strategy. Through Dr. Jurema and RMA we completed one Hysterosalpingogram, which revealed that my left fallopian tube was stretched and taught, but otherwise fine. Dr. Jurema explained that we could complete further testing to determine if it was endometriosis or we could move ahead with the IUI as sometimes it's possible that a woman's natural anatomy can be a cause. We opted to move forward with IUI only, no further testing. We completed two IUIs, each with a round of Letrozole (alternative to Clomid) and a trigger shot (hcg). On the second IUI cycle we also had to take a second trigger shot. Unfortunately I do not remember the doses. Both cycles resulted in negative pregnancy tests.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Cecille Tinio)
We were not pleased with the day-to-day communication by the nursing staff. They followed a "playbook," so to speak. Calls were made at a certain time each day with results, usually at the end of the day. If the call was missed there was no way to reach them again until the next day or hope that they were checking the portal overnight. When calls were answered and we had questions, nine times out of 10 they could not be answered. Essentially results were simply read off, not interpreted or used to modify a course of treatment.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
RMA NJ is a factory with little personalized care. We found nearly no positives with this clinic. Wait times were long for daily blood work, access to doctors was restricted, nursing staff or doctors of the moment were rarely educated in our personal journey. After two failed IUIs we were ready to move on to IVF and we knew that we could not go through that process at RMA. And thankfully we made the right choice in leaving there. We found another practice that was extremely personal, was able to modify courses of treatment when needed and monitored me closely throughout the entire journey in order to ensure a positive outcome.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Marcus Jurema at RMA of New Jersey.
Covered by insurance. Co-pay was our only out of pocket outside of medication.
