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.

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.

I was on the PCOS spectrum, and my husband had a poor morphology rating. Dr. Stein suggested we start with IUI was it was much less invasive than IVF, and believed with medication I was put on (Letrozole and the trigger shot), combined with my husband cutting out marijuana, we would have success. He suggested three IUI cycles...he clearly answered all questions, comments, etc, no matter how crazy my internet based questions were!...He clearly went over all options available to us, and provided his recommendation on what he thought would be best.
Eliza [nurse at RMA of New York] was amazing, always answering my emails in a timely manner, again no matter how crazy the question, and was always very comforting on the phone...IUI requires a few visits to the office each cycle - blood work, follicle monitoring, and the actual IUI procedure itself (you both need to go in that day!). Dr. Stein performed our first IUI procedure, and did so clearly explaining each step, and injecting just the right amount of humor into it all to help us feel more relaxed!...The entire staff were extremely detailed oriented - from the front desk, to the nurses, to the financial consultants. Each was able to clearly explain all aspects of what we were going through to us so we felt informed the entire time.
How was your experience with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
For our first appointment we met with Dr. Stein to discuss our situation: current test results done by my OBGYN, review additional testing that would be done to determine next steps, and anything else we had on our mind - he clearly answered all questions, comments, etc, no matter how crazy my internet based questions were! Once all results were back we went back in to meet with Dr. Stein to discuss our options. He clearly went over all options available to us, and provided his recommendation on what he thought would be best. We decided to move forward with IUI per his recommendation as he did not think we needed to start with anything too invasive at first, planning to do three rounds before reassessing our options. Dr. Stein performed our first IUI procedure, and did so clearly explaining each step, and injecting just the right amount of humor into it all to help us feel more relaxed! When our third attempt didn't work, we did one more round of IUI while we waited for our appointment with Dr. Stein to discuss what to do next. After our fourth IUI procedure, before it was time to take a pregnancy test, we had our follow up with Dr. Stein to discuss next steps. He went over the entire IVF process. We left that appointment feeling hopeful and excited to get that next process started. We felt that we were in the best hands. I was more relaxed after that meeting than I had been since before we initially met with him to start IUI... perhaps that is what helped lead to a positive pregnancy test with our fourth IUI cycle! Tomorrow I will be 20 weeks pregnant with our son. We are so thankful to Dr. Stein, Eliza, and the entire team at RMA of NY Westside for their support throughout this process. I would highly recommend them to anyone encountering fertility issues. We definitely plan on going back when we are ready for baby number 2.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Go into the process with an open mind, and try to stay calm and relaxed throughout the whole process as you are in the best hands.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
If you have experienced any level of infertility, you know how overwhelming everything can feel. We were referred to Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York by my OBGYN when I was diagnosed with PCOS, and my husband's sperm analysis showed his morphology was less than normal. I chose the westside location as it was close to my office. Our appointment was scheduled with Dr. Stein, and his team made us feel comfortable with the process as soon as we walked in the door. The staff at the front desk welcome and greet you when you sign in- every time you enter. For our first appointment we met with Dr. Stein to discuss our situation: current test results done by my OBGYN, review additional testing that would be done to determine next steps, and anything else we had on our mind - he clearly answered all questions, comments, etc, no matter how crazy my internet based questions were! We then met with our assigned nurse, Eliza, who reviewed our upcoming testing schedule with us. Eliza was amazing, always answering my emails in a timely manner, again no matter how crazy the question, and was always very comforting on the phone. Once all results were back we went back in to meet with Dr. Stein to discuss our options. He clearly went over all options available to us, and provided his recommendation on what he thought would be best. We decided to move forward with IUI per his recommendation as he did not think we needed to start with anything too invasive at first, planning to do three rounds before reassessing our options. IUI requires a few visits to the office each cycle - blood work, follicle monitoring, and the actual IUI procedure itself (you both need to go in that day!). Dr. Stein performed our first IUI procedure, and did so clearly explaining each step, and injecting just the right amount of humor into it all to help us feel more relaxed! While we did not necessarily see Dr. Stein or Eliza at all of those appointments over the three months, we felt very comfortable and in great hands with the doctors and nurses we did see. When we had an unsuccessful third IUI attempt, we were obviously upset and disappointed. I spoke with Eliza, who was the support I needed at the time, as I did not know what to do next as I was so accustomed to going in for day 1 blood work to start my next IUI cycle. As our follow up appointment with Dr. Stein was not for another two weeks, she suggested that my husband and I consider trying just one more time so we did not have to spend two weeks just waiting around. We decided to give it one more go. After the fourth IUI procedure, before it was time to take a pregnancy test, we had our follow up with Dr. Stein to discuss next steps. He went over the entire IVF process. We left that appointment feeling hopeful and excited to get that next process started. We felt that we were in the best hands. I was more relaxed after that meeting than I had been since before we initially met with him to start IUI... perhaps that is what helped lead to a positive pregnancy test with our fourth IUI cycle! I got the call from Eliza confirming that the blood work showed I was pregnant - she was as happy as we were! Tomorrow I will be 20 weeks pregnant with our son. We are so thankful to Dr. Stein, Eliza, and the entire team at RMA of NY Westside for their support throughout this process. I would highly recommend them to anyone encountering fertility issues.

When the three did not work, we met with him to discuss our next options - in the meantime we were in the middle of trying a fourth time as our appointment with Dr. Stein was not for another two weeks after the third failed attempt. He explained that our next options were either trying IUI for a total of six months (2 more times) or looking into IVF. My husband and I did not want to do two more rounds of IUI, so asked that he explain the IVF process to us. After that meeting we felt calm and in the most capable hands, ready to go on to the IVF process... I felt so relaxed that I think it led to my positive pregnancy test with the fourth IUI cycle!

Eliza was the nurse who gave me my trigger shot two times, and if she was working the day I received blood work back, was the nurse who called me. If Eliza was not working that day, each nurse I had/spoke to was just as warm and caring. When we had an unsuccessful third IUI attempt, we were obviously upset and disappointed.

Dr Stein was always extremely respectful, warm, informative, positive, and helpful with all of the many questions my partner and I had over the 2 treatments to become pregnant...We tried IUI at first, but it was made very clear that with our issue, it probably wouldn’t work (however insurance required we at least try) - then we moved onto the egg retrieval, testing and freezing, and IVF. We had our first child with only one round of IVF! Couldn’t be a more perfect child. We are currently pregnant with our second, again for pregnant on the first IVF treatment. Dr stein explained that he would not want to transfer 2 embryo at a time given our specific male-driven issue, which is good because we probably would have had twins (always more risky)
they [staff at RMA of New York] were always so great about everything I could only recommend them...I thought they [nurses] were always excellent, responsive, and flexible with timing (since I was almost always way late and they always accommodated)...The clinic has mainly strengths. Really truly always a great experience with everyone. My only comment for them would be to make sure they explain what each med is and why it’s important. I did have one issue where I didnt realize a med had a refill, so I stopped taking it for days.
How was your experience with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Dr Stein is the best- I wouldn’t trust anyone else with building our family. I know we can count on him for the most professional and sensible advice and care. We have one child and are expecting our second, and through years now we have successfully put our trust in dr Stein
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Go for it. He is a true expert on the field, and your potential children are too valuable to be trusted with someone who is just ok

Luckily everything was fine, but I think had the purpose of the med and the overall plan been explained, it might have been avoided. Honestly though they were always so great about everything I could only recommend them.

Dr. Lederman has always made himself available and responded quickly to questions. He has been compassionate and doesn't talk too clinical, so we can understand. I would say the same thing about his staff....Dr. Lederman has been very supportive, accessible and clear on the process, outcomes, next steps, and opinions, which I appreciate. I appreciate that he has personally called me with updates and final IVF results re: my embryos.

When we wanted to keep trying naturally before we decided to use IVF, Dr. Stein was patient with us and gave my wife and me the space to try. He didn't rush us to IVF, and in the end, it was our decision. He was clear about expectations and always approached us each step of the way with information and statistics. We believe information is power, so the more we knew the better...He's not going to hold your hand the entire way, but he'll tell it to you straight and that helped ease our anxiety about the process.
It was expensive [at RMA of New York], I think the entire process ran around $13 to $15k. That was after deductibles were met. But we also had insurance that covered most of the process...There as just SO many patients so you can feel sometimes a little lost in the shuffle, even with a coordinator. It is important to always come with a list of questions and really confirm timelines. From retrieval to implantation was longer than we thought and that was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster.

[Dr. Stein] is a direct communicator so if you prefer information to be sugarcoated, talk about your style up front! If you want more information as to the how/why on something, just ask the question...Even after a first failed transfer, he was critical with the data and while many other doctors would prescribe a different treatment, we did a hysteroscopy to rule out some potential issues, everything came back normal, and we stayed with the same tried&true plan- resulting in my current pregnancy!
The nursing staff at RMA of NY is excellent- they were always super friendly, compassionate, equipped, informative. Everything is like clockwork in the clinic, and the nurses are truly at the heart of it all...an efficient well-oiled machine- only drawback is preassigned appt times vs getting to choose. They did ask for preferences during pregnancy ultrasounds, but not during the retrieval period when I was visiting multiple times per week.
How was your experience with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Dr. Stein is a very direct & clear communicator, which are traits I prefer in my health professionals! He was always willing to entertain my questions & probing in person, via phone, or email. From the beginning he was very confident that we could get results (ie get me pregnant!) which made me feel at ease in an otherwise world of fertility ambiguity, while at the same time being realistic based on the data at hand. Even after a first failed transfer, he was critical with the data and while many other doctors would prescribe a different treatment, we did a hysteroscopy to rule out some potential issues, everything came back normal, and we stayed with the same tried&true plan- resulting in my current pregnancy! I had a super positive experience and will keep seeing Dr. Stein as we continue to grow our family. So thankful for him and the RMA of NY team!

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
In our consultations, Dr. Stein spoke & offered his professional advice to me as he would his own daughter. He also did what few busy professionals (doctors, people I've worked with, etc) have done- he learned how to pronounce my name and never failed!
Describe the protocols Daniel Stein used in your cycles at RMA of New York and their degree of success.
Our retrieval- kept dosages on the low side given I'm younger and have better egg production. Don't remember all the medications used. I did have a higher number of eggs (28) so he prescribed cabergoline to avoid getting OHSS post retrieval. In the end, although I didn't go to the clinic to be diagnosed, I did suffer quite a bit post retrieval and it took 14 days to get back to normal (7 days to feel better). All worth it, as I got 8 PGS normal embryos on ice! FET- ended up having one failed cycle and one successful one with a hysteroscopy + inflammation test in between! Both had the same protocol- estradiol pills 3x per day, 1ml progesterone injections 1x per day, antibiotic before transfer. Dr. Stein was confident the protocol should be kept the same even after a failed transfer given my profile, despite my asking all the questions! Second transfer led to positive pregnancy test + currently 9w pregnant.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at RMA of New York.
The nursing staff at RMA of NY is excellent- they were always super friendly, compassionate, equipped, informative. Everything is like clockwork in the clinic, and the nurses are truly at the heart of it all.
Describe your experience with RMA of New York.
Strengths- great structure & very organized, minimal wait times, amazing healthcare professionals Weaknesses- you don't speak to the same nurse/see your doctor every visit (if this is important to you)
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New York.
This is an efficient well-oiled machine- only drawback is preassigned appt times vs getting to choose. They did ask for preferences during pregnancy ultrasounds, but not during the retrieval period when I was visiting multiple times per week.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Daniel Stein at RMA of New York.
I believe my retrieval + 1st transfer was ~9.5K, plus medications which amounted to 4.2K. This was the best quote I could find in NYC, and based on fb groups I'm a part of a pretty great rate. My second transfer was 3.4K (no retrieval)
Describe Daniel Stein's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New York.

Dr. Stein is a very experienced professional. I felt I was in good hands all the time. He is busy but always asked me if I had questions or something bothered me...was always very nice and has great humor. Which I appreciated because the process is uncertain and a bit scary. He evaluated my situation and explained what could happen...He showed me the egg that was going to be transferred on the big screen and they made sure I was the person who was supposed to receive that egg...
Prices are on the RMA of NY site for everybody to see. The whole process was $26,330...Scheduling appointments, Blood tests, sonograms, saline sonos, et cetera are very organized. They have two locations in New York and you can switch locations if you need. I recommend you ask all financial questions before you start the process. Understand the contract well. We did that so we knew exactly what to expect as they are limited on the health insurance companies they work with and we were paying everything out-of-pocket.
How was your experience with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Dr. Stein is a very experienced professional. I felt I was in good hands all the time. He is busy but always asked me if I had questions or something bothered me. My IVF experience was smooth. I got pregnant on my first transfer and I am now 14 weeks pregnant. Our baby girl is healthy and growing fast. I highly recommend Dr. Stein. As a bonus, he is sweet and funny.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
I had an extremely good experience. I came to our first appointment with no expectations and after that first meeting, I decided to trust Dr. Stein and trust my body. I knew Dr. Stein would do his best and I was ready to do the same. As with everything in life, the outcome for an IVF is uncertain but a good attitude and optimism help the process. He was actually recommended by my endocrinologist.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Dr. Stein was always very nice and has great humor. Which I appreciated because the process is uncertain and a bit scary. He evaluated my situation and explained what could happen. He has a lot of experience and in my case, I needed a very experienced Doctor so he was a perfect fit for us. I am now 14 weeks pregnant and couldn't be happier with my experience.
Describe the protocols Daniel Stein used in your cycles at RMA of New York and their degree of success.
Dr. Stein said that he would prefer to do a fresh transfer to increase the percentage of success and he was right. I had to go over many medical tests before having the approval. Due to covid, I was able to schedule all the test within a month. My assigned nurse practitioner Dara Berg coached me throughout the whole process. She was fantastic and answered all my doubts and fears. Dara kept us up-to-date on the donor's egg retrieval cycle. Everything was synchronized to perfection; my husband's sperm retrieval with egg donor's retrieval with the date of fresh transfer. We had counseling meetings about psychology and DNA compatibility prior to the transfer. On the day of the transfer, I used my lucky socks and we had a great time because the fox in my socks matched one of the Doctor's scrub cap LOL. Dr. Stein was very calmed and explained the process which actually happens super fast. He showed me the egg that was going to be transferred on the big screen and they made sure I was the person who was supposed to receive that egg. I was so scared I couldn't talk. No words could come out of my mouth but Dr. Stein and the team were super nice. A day I will always remember.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New York. (Assigned nurse: Dara Berg)
Dara is really amazing. I was actually sad the day I graduated from RMA because I felt I would miss talking to her. I never got to meet her because of covid. Only phone or email but she was always there for me and answered all my questions with love and compassion. She probably deals with many patients a day but always made me feel like I was unique. Thank you Dara if you are reading this!

Dr. Stein was incredibly knowledgeable. He diagnosed me with endometriosis just based on our conversation and an ultrasound. I have had issues with this for years but it remained undiagnosed and untreated until then...I was happy to trust his judgement - while he's not always the most compassionate doctor, I truly appreciated his candid outlook on my situation and knowledgeable guidance on my procedure....
I really liked the RMA. It only took a few weeks from our first consultation to know what the issue was and have a plan of how to proceed... I was always able to reach her [nurse] over email with questions and she was always knowledgeable. I also appreciated that they always called me with my results rather than just emailing them to me
How was your experience with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Dr. Stein was incredibly knowledgeable. He diagnosed me with endometriosis just based on our conversation and an ultrasound. I have had issues with this for years but it remained undiagnosed and untreated until then. He recommend laporoscopy and referred me to a very good surgeon. This was very daunting for me but he was always responsive and happy to chat more about pros and cons of different procedures. After the lap he suggested IVF given that I have tubal blockage. I was happy to trust his judgement - while he's not always the most compassionate doctor, I truly appreciated his candid outlook on my situation and knowledgeable guidance on my procedure. I had one experience with another doctor that wasn't as pleasant - it was my first IVF appointment. I filled out a review form after the appointment and promptly got a call back from the clinic and Dr. Stein to chat about what can be improved and adjust expectations. I recommended Dr. Stein to my friend who is now in fertility treatment with him.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Don't hesitate to ask, while appointments can go by quickly he was always very happy to answer questions over email or follow-up appointments.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
I felt very well treated and looked after during the entire process. I never had to wait long for my appointments and Dr. Stein was always familiar with my history and current situation.
Describe the protocols Daniel Stein used in your cycles at RMA of New York and their degree of success.
I did one cycle of egg retrieval. The medication was dosed very carefully and before the retrieval I went in for bloodwork and ultrasound every day to perfectly time the retrieval. The retrieval procedure went well and I felt back to normal the next day. They retrieved 24 eggs, fertilized 17 and 10 made it to day 5. Those were biopsied and all frozen. Of the 10, 4 were chromosomally normal (PGS). I had to wait one cycle before I could do the transfer because I can't take regular birthcontrol. I didn't know this beforehand and this extra wait felt quite devastating at the time. We did PGS to maximize our chances of a healthy pregnancy. They didn't really present different options, but rather recommended one specific path (FET with PGS) and we went along with it without worrying too much about it. Dr. Stein did the transfer and that was easy as well. I've been injecting progesterone since 5 days prior to transfer and also taking estrogen. I didn't realize beforehand that I would have to do this for another 8ish weeks if the pregnancy was successful. I did a pregnancy test at the clinic 2 weeks after the transfer (I didn't test at home) and the test came back positive, yay! I had a few follow-up appointments for bloodwork and ultrasound after that. I was released from the fertility clinic when I was 8 weeks 5 days pregnant.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New York. (Assigned nurse: Elizabeth Lipov)
Liza was awesome - I was always able to reach her over email with questions and she was always knowledgeable. I also appreciated that they always called me with my results rather than just emailing them to me.
Describe your experience with RMA of New York.
I really liked the RMA. It only took a few weeks from our first consultation to know what the issue was and have a plan of how to proceed. During IVF monitoring it sometimes felt a bit like an assembly line, but it kinda is - we're all there for the same thing and need to get our bloodwork and ovaries checked. I didn't quite know what to expect during the first IVF checkup and didn't feel super well taken care of (this was not with Dr. Stein). However, when I mention that in my feedback they immediately reached out to adjust things. Ever since I appreciated their care, efficiency and communcation.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New York.
It was definitely a well-oiled machine. I didn't have preferences for the monitoring hours so they just assigned a time the day before and it always worked out well. I don't think I ever had to wait longer than 10 minutes.
Describe Daniel Stein's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New York.
He strongly suggested single embryo transfer to increase changes of a succesfull pregnancy. Their overall approach was to do everything to maximize success even if that meant waiting some time after my lap to be sure that things healed completely or waiting a month between retrievel or transfer, or doing a few extra appointments. While it made the process longer in the beginning, I really liked this approach because I think it does safe me a lot of time and grief in the long run.

[Dr. Stein] has a great personality. He was always warm and friendly when in the room with me and he made time to answer all my questions without making me feel rushed...diagnosed a major obstacle to my getting pregnant -- I had chronic endometritis, which was treated with antibiotics. Our first frozen embryo transfer (with a different RMA doctor) failed but we were successful on the second try, with Dr. Stein in charge. I do wish that they had tested me for endometritis before doing any transfers.
The morning monitoring hours [at RMA of New York] were actually not super convenient for me because I work a later shift, but I understand they work for people who do a 9 to 5 so I have no real complaints there...RMA does single embryo transfers. I didn't push for more...One thing my husband and I found very reassuring is that all of our embryos were genetically tested before the transfer. That really gave us peace of mind that we were doing everything we could to have a healthy baby. Now we have done noninvasive prenatal testing, which RMA advised us to do because nothing in life is 100% certain, and everything came back low risk.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
I think it's important to choose a doctor who has been doing IVF for a long, long time and has a lot of experience. My previous doctor was younger and that transfer was not a success.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
I had a fantastic experience with RMA and Dr. Stein in particular. He is obviously very good at what he does and also has a great personality. He was always warm and friendly when in the room with me and he made time to answer all my questions without making me feel rushed.
Describe the protocols Daniel Stein used in your cycles at RMA of New York and their degree of success.
I had two egg retrievals total, both freeze all. I used Menopur and HCG. I had two frozen transfers, one less medicated with a previous doctor (that one did not work) and one fully medicated with Dr. Stein (that one worked).
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New York. (Assigned nurse: Krista)
Krista was my favorite nurse at RMA, but they were all good. I was happy to have her as my main nurse and my husband liked her, too, the times that he came in with me. She has a nice, friendly personality and knows her stuff. She was always willing to help and answer questions.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Daniel Stein at RMA of New York.
My fertility benefits were with Progyny, which basically covered everything related to the actual fertility treatments. No co-pays. Then my prescription coverage was through Aetna, where I had some reasonable co-pays. After I got pregnant my appointments switched over to Aetna and had $50 co-pays. I had to pay out of pocket for frozen embryo storage and that was $500 for six months.

What specific things went wrong at RMA of New York?
  • Failed to send your chart to another clinic
Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of New York.
Only one thing and it wasn't a huge deal. When RMA discharged me to my new OBGYN, after I got pregnant, they asked me to send them the OBGYN's information so they could transfer my records. I gave them the info but the records didn't make it in time for my first appointment. Something went wrong. But I got in touch with Krista, my nurse, and she got the ball rolling on getting the records sorted out right away.

Dr. Stein has a lot of experience so I felt good that he had seen a number of different scenarios before...Because our diagnosis was male infertility...One thing that really changed our outcome was the close coordination with the urologist...Antagonist protocol with a dual trigger helped us to retrieve 38 eggs. We got 21 embryos from there and ended up with 10 PGS normal embryos. Husband was also on Gonal-F injections 3x a week for at least 3 months before we used his sperm after the retrieval.
RMA Westside seems very organized. It may take about 30 minutes to get through monitoring hours, but I liked that you get an email with your specific blood results (including numbers). You're assigned a care coordinator who helps you through the entire process and you can email them at any time. Finance is also very responsive and was helpful when my insurance mailed me a check by mistake instead of them.
How was your experience with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Dr. Stein has a lot of experience so I felt good that he had seen a number of different scenarios before. One thing that really changed our outcome was the close coordination with the urologist, Dr. Bar-Chama. Because our diagnosis was male infertility, the urologist's input was also key.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Dr. Stein is a bit no nonsense in his delivery but just know that you're getting the best care.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Dr. Stein gave some thought to our treatment and it seemed like he knew exactly what to do. After we had been basically told we were a lost cause. He told us we would be a difficult case but that he would do his best.

Dr. Stein was sympathetic throughout the course of treatments...We ended up doing three rounds of IUI and three rounds of IVF under the care of Dr. Stein. Our third IVF worked, we are now 17 weeks pregnant...was always candid with us about what he could control and couldn’t control. In our cases, we found out that we had PCOS, endometriosis, chronic endometritis, and a chromosome issue as treatments go. We needed a few attempts to find the best protocol for our particular situation. Given the difficulties of our case, I don’t think we could have gotten our successful results as relatively soon as we did if we had switched doctors midstream.
it was very helpful that monitoring visits (to check blood levels, etc.) take place in the morning [at RMA of New York]. The visits were always efficient and I was never late to work. We also received a follow-up call and instructions promptly on the same day...on-duty nurses/doctors were also quick to answer my emails whenever I had questions or concerns...Overall nursed at RMA were very helpful in answering questions. There was the only nurse who was not being helpful at all...The cost of IVF was around $14,000 plus medications per cycle. Additional transfer fees of around $4,000 per transfer.
How was your experience with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
We ended up doing three rounds of IUI and three rounds of IVF under the care of Dr. Stein. Our third IVF worked, we are now 17 weeks pregnant and we couldn’t be any happier! I'll be honest: this journey was certainly never easy. There were sad and frustrating times but we definitely made the right decision by trusting Dr. Stein and sticking with him and the team at RMA. Throughout our process, we learned that there are many reasons that your treatments can go wrong; infertility treatment is never an exact science, and Dr. Stein was always candid with us about what he could control and couldn’t control. In our cases, we found out that we had PCOS, endometriosis, chronic endometritis, and a chromosome issue as treatments go. We needed a few attempts to find the best protocol for our particular situation. Given the difficulties of our case, I don’t think we could have gotten our successful results as relatively soon as we did if we had switched doctors midstream. On a practical note, it was very helpful that monitoring visits (to check blood levels, etc.) take place in the morning. The visits were always efficient and I was never late to work. We also received a follow-up call and instructions promptly on the same day. Dr. Stein and on-duty nurses/doctors were also quick to answer my emails whenever I had questions or concerns. My advice to any couples considering infertility treatment is to take the time necessary to do your own research and ask lots of questions to your doctor. At RMA, our experience was that Dr. Stein would always listen to and answer our questions, even if our concerns or anxieties were more internet-based than evidence-based :-). Make sure you understand the treatment and protocols that are recommended, and why it is that a doctor believes that a given protocol is the best course of action for your individual situation. Overall we had a very positive experience working with Dr. Daniel Stein and enthusiastically recommend him and the team at RMA. Without Dr. Stein’s counsel, diligence and hard work, we would not be at the incredibly happy place we are today, getting ready to welcome a healthy baby into our family.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Dr. Stein was sympathetic throughout the course of treatments.
Describe the protocols Daniel Stein used in your cycles at RMA of New York and their degree of success.
At first, our problems seemed to originate in PCOS and poor egg quality. Based on this initial assessment, we proceeded with an antagonist protocol. During the first retrieval, we successfully retrieved 17 eggs and created four embryos. Of those four, only one came back with a normal assessment form the PGS testing. The second retrieval was a failure because the dosage of the trigger shot was too low (instructed by the doctor on call, not Dr. Stein). The third retrieval yielded 21 eggs and 6 embryos. Based on the PGS assessment then, the doctor discovered we had a potential translocation issue. The doctor spoke with the lab to double-check his hypothesis that we had an instance of balanced translocation - and therefore could proceed to embryo transfer - and was very careful. This time we used OPC/LUPTON OVERLAP protocol and it seemed worked for our case as well.

Overall nursed at RMA were very helpful in answering questions. There was the only nurse who was not being helpful at all...

Describe the costs associated with your care under Daniel Stein at RMA of New York.
Our insurance covered IUIs, but not IVF. The cost of IVF was around $14,000 plus medications per cycle. Additional transfer fees of around $4,000 per transfer.

What specific things went wrong at RMA of New York?
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of New York.
During the second IVF cycle, the doctor-on-call prescribed the incorrect dosage for the trigger shot (out of an abundance of caution). This dosage ended up being ineffective for proper egg retrieval and resulted in an unusable egg yield. However, the clinic recognized what had happened, and their role, and graciously made sure we could have a "do-over" retrieval. Separately, when beginning our third retrieval cycle, we were given some conflicting information about the protocol. We were able to sort it out - and it ultimately worked - but it did create some confusion for a few days.

Dr. Stein was pleasant to work with and I felt provided the best protocol of treatment specific to my needs. He adjusted my medications as needed and After two separate embryo transfers, I now have a healthy son...I liked My doctor’s approach to only transfer a single embryo as I did not want twins...Drugs to stimulate eggs for retrieval, PGS testing of the embryos, drugs to thicken the uterine lining for implantation. I retrieved 20+ eggs the first cycle, that resulted in 5 normal embryos (best embryos were boys). I Did a second retrieval (trying for a girl), With reduced egg stimulation medication, that resulted in 12 eggs retrieved and three healthy embryos.

I highly recommend Dr Stein...I always received very hands on, meticulous care from Dr Stein. From retrieval, to monitoring, to transfer he was personally there at each step...We definitely attribute the medication protocol and weekly monitoring to our successful "graduation" to my OBGYN at 9 weeks...He was very helpful recommending the right scenario for us [regarding Eset]...We successfully conceived after 3 IVF cycles at the age of 39. I'm 11 weeks and we are doing great!
The Soho office [of RMA of New York] mislabeled our sperm before an IUI treatment- but their quality assurance protocols caught it before insemination and had to discard two sperm donations to rectify. They brought us in to explain the issue immediately and apologize. We then had to provide another sperm donation and they refunded us the costs for the entire IUI cycle to correct the error on their part. We decided to only work with West Side moving forward and that helped with peace of mind.

I appreciated while RMA is a busy practice, I always received very hands on, meticulous care from Dr Stein. From retrieval, to monitoring, to transfer he was personally there at each step. RMA does not stop after you become pregnant. It was post "positive pregnancy test" that I found my most valuable care navigating the delicate weeks after. We definitely attribute the medication protocol and weekly monitoring to our successful "graduation" to my OBGYN at 9 weeks.

Dr. Stein is knowledgeable and a straight-shooter. I appreciated that he shared his opinion and recommendations on my IVF decisions and personally answered any questions I had in our consults and over email. I highly recommend Dr. Stein if you are looking for clarity and don't need to be coddled. My fertility journey is over, thank goodness, but I find myself missing Dr. Stein's wry sense of humor. I kind of wish he were my OB!...
RMA's paperwork isn't all that clear...Take good notes during your meetings...My nurse was very friendly and accommodating, but I often felt like I was the one keeping the records, not her...I'd have to remind the clinic to order tests and send in prescriptions that were specifically requested by my doctor and nurse. Everything always turned out fine, but I felt like I needed to stay on top of my protocol in order to double-check the clinic's work.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Take good notes during your meetings with Dr. Stein, because RMA's paperwork isn't all that clear.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Dr. Stein asked personal questions and got to know me, my partner, and my family—all information that he included in his treatment plan.
Describe the protocols Daniel Stein used in your cycles at RMA of New York and their degree of success.
I forgot most of the protocols, but after three rounds of IVF and only one grade C embryo, Dr. Stein urged me to consider donor eggs. If he hadn't come right out and said it, I can imagine I would have put myself through the emotional and financial strain of another three cycles. I'm so grateful for Dr. Stein's mercifully candid advice.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New York. (Assigned nurse: Dara Berg)
My nurse was very friendly and accommodating, but I often felt like I was the one keeping the records, not her.
Describe your experience with RMA of New York.
RMA is a factory, which I mean in both a good and a bad way. RMA is HUGE and they've got the fertility program DOWN. You get the impression that nothing would faze them; they've got an answer and a workaround for everything. The downside is that RMA can feel like an assembly line set to run a little too fast. On multiple occasions, I'd have to remind the nurses about my test results, my medication schedule, and more. I suspect that their patient records are scribbled in crayon and filed between take-out menus, because no one seemed to have a 100% grasp of what was going on. I dealt with it by being super-organized and knowledgable about my own protocol, and if you can deal with that, you'll be fine.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New York.
Weekend mornings, all monitoring is funneled to a single clinic location, so there would be a HUGE crowd and a long wait. Otherwise, monitoring was efficient.
Describe Daniel Stein's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New York.
Dr. Stein prefers to transfer a single embryo.

The Doctor [Dr. Lederman] had a great understanding of what our outcome would be based on our health and condition. He was also matter of fact which is something we appreciated... He is a straight shooter and very passionate as to PGT M testing. We had a great experience...Do not expect him to go into details in others regards that are not medical ( like financial bills etc ). He is practical and honest...We had one stimulation cycle with low dosages. One egg retrieval and one frozen embryo transfer. The outcome of all this was a pregnancy.
The RMA believes strongly in single embryo transfer. That appears to be the safest route for pregnancy. That was fine with us...The key Clinic strengths are as follows. efficient , knowledgeable, experts...While the are the following-Miscommunications from IVF coordinator...Great experience and you still felt like an individual...Tatiana which was Dr Lederman lead nurse was amazing. She was on top of all our calls and would inform us of any changes when they would come up. She really cared and was optimistic the entire way.
