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. Daniel Stein] Was very thorough during my initial consultation & pointed me towards exploring endometriosis (which was a blessing & I am eternally grateful for that conversation as it was the first time it was brought up) but seems out of touch with me personally & relies on numerous coordinators...Not much communication during IUI cycle...First recommended I meet with a speciality obgyn to explore endometriosis & then also address a previously undiagnosed thyroid. Then 4 cycles of IUI before IVF
Issue [at RMA of New York] with not determining if IVF treatment was authorized yet (insurance wants 2 more IUI cycles) while being started with the IUI treatment in birth control therefore being put in limbo and delaying next steps...High volume & can seem just like a number at times. However, the front desk staff is very nice as were the nurses who drew blood during monitoring hours. Different coordinators do meet seem to coordinator with each other (I had an issue regarding starting IVF without checking if I was approved yet for treatments by insurance).

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Stein, and this is not only because I have been so fortunate in being successful under his care...I am currently pregnant with my 3rd child, thanks to Dr. Stein. To say I am grateful to him is an understatement. But it goes beyond that- the care he and his team (especially nurse Eliza) provide is truly best in class, and their kindness and support is something my husband and I found to be invaluable, during what can at times be a very emotionally taxing process. Dr. Stein balances his incredible experience and expertise with a candid yet compassionate bedside manner. He was always able to make me laugh when I needed it! I truly miss him and his team, now that I have graduated
[RMA of New York] is a large clinic, which could be the only source of frustration. It is extremely well run though, you just need to have clear expectations. Sometimes rotating through different doctors who did not know me, I would be upset, but their expertise and professionalism was always very clear...Eliza [nurse] went above and beyond in her care for me. She even went out of her way to see me during my latest transfer. She is a wonderful personal, and incredibly talented professionally.

He [Dr. Daniel Stein] was amazing! He knows his stuff...He is approachable, communicative and understands how anxiety-ridden this entire process can be. He also has a wonderful sense of humor, which makes a big difference...He treated me for my underachieve thyroid. He caught on to a downward trend that my endocronologist had missed. He helped put me on a medication to ovulate that reduced and had use complete genetic testing and sperm analysis before successfully completing one IUI
The Westside clinic [of RMA of NY] is clean, modern and warm. I think it is the perfect clinic. It feels inviting but not overwhelming and is set up so that you can read, and see how monitoring hours work.

She delivers results with care and made the whole process one of ease.

Dr. Lederman is compassionate and empathic. ... I also love the fact that he performs his own transfers. ... From day 1, he was optimistic that he'd be able to help us conceive. He reassured us and walked us through the grueling steps of IVF. ... I am wholeheartedly grateful for the care I have received with Dr. Lederman and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. His nurse, Tatiana, is outstanding. She's very sweet, knowledgeable, and caring. Although, I am happy to be graduating to my Ob, I am also sad to leave RMA.

Dr. Lederman is compassionate and empathic. Even something as small as him following up with my husband and I's recent trip to Texas, shows how attentive he is.

He was compassionate when needed and helped me move onto donor eggs when that time came...will only consider eSET, at least in my case.

I felt very confident with Dr Stein treating me. He has 20+ years of experience which earns my trust. He is not going to sugar coat things and make you have higher expectations than you should. He is a good communicator. I never had trouble understanding what he was telling me...He was honest and up front about our situation and our options but also down to earth...When I came to him feeling a certain way about something, he listened and resolved it.

How was your experience with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?
Dr Stein is the best fertility doc in town. He is brilliant, kind, patient, responsive, and has a wonderful bedside manner.

He [Dr. Daniel Stein] was great, but due to timing, I rarely saw him. He is warm, and has a good sense of humor and I felt very comfortable with him. He explained things thoroughly and if I ever had questions I could email him. Overall, my experience was good!! I didn't get too many eggs (6 frozen) but he seemed to think that was a good amount for my numbers. He recommended that if money was not a concern that I should do a second round, but it's so expensive and I don't know if I will do it.
About $4,500 for medication. About $9000 for egg freezing. About $750 for anesthesia...Monitoring [at RMA of New York] was in the early morning. Not ideal for my schedule, but I went at the end of the window and was fine...On the weekends, the east side clinic was very crowded because it is the only one that is open.

He [Dr. Stein] sat down with us and explained the process. He exuded confidence which gave us a level of comfort. He was very good at managing our expectations and disclosing as much information as we needed without stressing us out.
I would say that RMA is good at communicating information internally but needs to better coordinate with external entities, i.e. hospitals... They remember your name and recognize you in the office. It is quite remarkable given the number of patients they see each day. Also considering that we are a same-sex couple, we did not feel judged at all.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Stein at RMA of New York?

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.
I needed to undergo surgery to have a polyp removed from my uterus, and day before the procedure, there was miscommunication as to whether or not I was scheduled for the surgery. It was resolved the same day but it was just stressful because it happened the day before the procedure and I was afraid that it would delay the whole cycle. I would say that RMA is good at communicating information internally but needs to better coordinate with external entities, i.e. hospitals.

Extremely understanding and very patient, Truthfully caring. When we failed a cycle we literally felt like it affected Dr g [Dr. Lawrence Grunfeld] personally. Dr g would always return out calls, he would try to schedule our visits so that we didn't have to ruin our weekends. When we failed our first ivf he allowed us to start our second cycle of ivf in August, although he doesn't usually do cycles then.... Very efficiently run. Great phlebotomy team. Very large practice and from time to time long waits

He [Dr. Stein] seemed very competent but I rarely spoke to him. His coordinators told me he assessed me the entire time but it was hard to tell. I had trouble stimulating follicles and felt in the dark. It's a challenging process and I had wished for more one on one attention...I feel like he saw my chart and assessed fairly...I used ivf medication- gonal and menapur. Then rotated in certitude....Very kind reception and great facility. Well run and organized.
