Due to another doctor leaving I started seeing Dr Griffin at the start of our IVF cycle and he wasn’t that familiar with our case. But he was always very companionate and hopeful with us along the way. ... IVF ICSI because of Male factor (obstruction) Antagonist protocol due to low AMH level Took meds for 13 days I was a slow responder. ... He did prepare me for the worst during a couple appointments, sometimes I wish he would have been a little bit more straight forward but other than that he was great.

Describe the protocols Adam Griffin used in your cycles at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates and their degree of success.
IVF ICSI because of Male factor (obstruction) Antagonist protocol due to low AMH level Took meds for 13 days I was a slow responder. He thinks it the Birth Control I took before May have over surpressed me. So next cycle we would not do BC. Retrieval 9 eggs 8 mature 7 fertilized 5 grew normal Transferred 2 embryos Remainder were not strong enough to freeze Transferred 2 embryos. Resulted in a chemical pregnancy. Also want to note I came down with the flu right after transfer. High fever no GI issues.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Very nice in person but sometimes I would feel rushed during the afternoon phone calls with next steps during cycle.
Describe your experience with Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
Be your own advocate. Write everything down and take notes. Also trust your instincts and push for what’s best for you. Strength- organized. Monitoring apts were quick and easy to go to. Weekness - phone calls seemed rushed at times. Waiting time varies.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
Insurance covered partial meds and 50% procedure. I reached lifetime max with meds so no more coverage. Billing was always timely

Discuss and ask questions about any treatment you want to pursue and he will be happy to assist in your journey.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates?
Dr Griffin is extremely kind and friendly. He explains everything in a way that we can all understand without talking down to you. He made me feel so comfortable and at ease about everything he wanted to try and accomplish with my treatment. I would highly recommend him.
Describe the protocols Adam Griffin used in your cycles at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates and their degree of success.
I started out with clomid, but that gave me horrible cramps. Then I switched to Letrozal, which was a lot easier on my body, but that gave me the same results as clomid in the end. I then moved on to gonal-f, which my body responded to much better. I still have not had any success getting pregnant, but he has helped answer questions about moving forward with further IUI's after endometriosis was removed or moving on to IVF.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses that work for Dr Griffin are very nice and compassionate. Sometimes they are backed up, but always take the time you need with them to answer any questions or just to talk.
Describe your experience with Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
The biggest strength of this clinic is that it is small and not overflowing with patients. The doctors and nurses make time for you and don't make you feel like you are rushed out the door so they can see the next 20 patients before lunch. They remember me and are compassionate about my journey and how frustrating this can be. Their hours for bloodwork and appointments are always helpful for those that work. I never feel like a number here and always feel welcome. They also have a support group once a month where women can get together to just talk and not feel judged. The only weakness I would say is that they do not recommend other pharmacies to try to get medications at a cheaper rate. They did recommend target, which they are great and well aware of the fertility meds they stock, but they are not the cheapest. Buffalo IVF strengths substantially outweigh the weaknesses.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
My insurance covers unlimited IUIs and the ultrasound appointments, so I have only had copays so far plus all medications. IVF is $4500 per round.

Describe the protocols Adam Griffin used in your cycles at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates and their degree of success.
With Dr. Griffin, I have been on injectables and he has adjusted my dosing according to my response. We have undergone 4 IUI cycles with him after several with another doctor. Although they were unsuccessful, he is confident and optimistic about pursuing IVF this coming cycle.

The nursing staff has been absolutely amazing throughout treatments. They are comforting, compassionate and caring.
Describe your experience with Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
There are 2 main doctors and 1 nurse practitioner. The doctors have very different personalities. In case one does not meet your needs, the other is fantastic! And the NP is amazing as well. She has been in our shoes and has two beautiful twins to show for her treatment! The clinic is very accomodating and usually very fast to respond to calls and voicemails. Overall, I have been extremely satisfied with Buffalo IVF!

Dr Griffin seems to truly cares about his patients. He took time to explain details surrounding recommended care and answered all questions. He didn't brush off research I did as a patient but took time to thoughtfully comment on ideas I've read about regarding recurrent pregnancy loss. He then followed up with more of his own research and proposed to try a more experimental medication that has shown some promising results elsewhere. Given that there's not a lot of data or ideas on how to treat unexplained recurrent miscarriages, it means a lot to me that he is willing to help me try something different and give us some hope

How was your experience with Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates?
Dr Griffin takes time to explain everything and answers questions patiently. When I first saw him I explained that I had a negative experience with one of the other providers at his clinic previously and he responded thoughtfully and compassionately. He took time to look into the most current research about unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss and came back to my follow up appointment with an idea for an additional medication we can try that has seen some promising results.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates?
I think with all doctors it is important to do your own research and be your own advocate. Bring a notebook and keep track of what procedure and test you had done at what time. Medical charts are unfortunately not always accurate and this becomes especially important when switching clinics or providers. Do some preliminary research so you can be an active member of your own care team.

Over the course of my fertility journey, I've seen numerous obgyns and fertility specialists and it means a lot to me that it doesn't feel like he's just trying to check you off the list and get to the next patient. You definitely feel like a human instead of a number working with him.
Describe the protocols Adam Griffin used in your cycles at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates and their degree of success.
This cycle I am taking an immunosuppresant called Tacrolimus. After ovulation I will be taking Benadryl 25mg 3x/day as well as progesterone in oil. We are testing for PAI-1 and depending on the results may add Lovenox. I am also on prenatals, Vit B12, Vit D, CoQ10, and baby aspirin. I am doing IUI this cycle and did Femera at 5mg for CD 3-7.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff has done there best to follow up with me and get my questions answered. They are good about calling back and following up as needed.
Describe your experience with Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
I don't feel as comfortable with the other providers that have been at this clinic currently and in the past. They haven't been as open to questions and usually seem rushed. My recommendation would be to absolutely request Dr Griffin.

How was your experience with Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates?
We did each failed IUI (4) with a different doctor and started the IVF process with that doctor as well. Dr. Griffin performed the transfer during the IVF and fully explained everything before he began. Walked us through everything during and after the procedure and gave us the warmest goodbye and said to keep positive thoughts.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates?
After our failed IVF cycle, started with a doctor who was leaving the practice (also had 4 failed iui’s with same doctor), we decided to put our trust in Dr. Griffin. As soon as we came into his office we were greeted warmly and he gave his sincerest condolences that our IVF wasn’t successful. He answered every question we could think of and assured us that we will conceive again, it’s not if, but when.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Absolutely loved the nursing staff. We began in 2015 with another doctor and when we returned to try for a second baby many of the nurses remembered my husband and I and couldn’t wait to see our son. All the nurses felt for us each time we knew the procedures failed and told us to remain strong and positive. They’re amazing!
Describe your experience with Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
The clinic is extremely busy. But everyone working there absolutely takes the time to make you feel like the only patient there. Very short wait time, whether it’s for the nurses, doctors, etc. The front office staff is always ready to greet you with a warm smile or joke, anything that’s helpful to bring a smile to your face! Diane in the quest office is absolutely amazing. So kind, understanding and funny!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
Under our insurance we had 3 IUI cycles covered. We paid out of pocket for the 4th, only cost us $100 for a certain medication. As for the IVF we spent a total of $7500 for the procedure, testing, scans, and medication.
Describe Adam Griffin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
At our clinic they will only transfer 2 embryos at a time. No more.

How was your experience with Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates?
I've had nothing but great experiences with Dr. Griffin, I'm always happy to have him overseeing a cycle or appointment for me as I know he will listen, be compassionate and take the time to discuss any options. I'm always asking a lot of questions about different courses of treatment I've read about, and he's honest in his feedback on them and willing to let me try anything that won't hurt. He has a great bedside manner making you feel at ease during what's an incredibly stressful and difficult time.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates?
Don't be afraid to ask questions and be armed with your own information - he will take the time to listen and provide his feedback in a thoughtful way.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Jen is FANTASTIC. She's very responsive to emails and phone calls, and shows a lot of compassion and sympathy. She also put together/hosts a monthly group support session which is so helpful to anyone going through infertility treatments.
Describe your experience with Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
As a whole, they are all extremely nice, caring and compassionate. I do not feel like I'm just a number to them, and each doctor has patiently listened to my (many) questions and provided their honest feedback. They've been open to my requests to try different things as long as they won't hurt anything. I think they could do a better job providing more resources to their patients (i.e. I'd like to see them have an in-house acupuncturist, masseuse, and counselor/therapist). A nurse or two hasn't been as compassionate as I'd think for someone working at an infertility clinic, but generally they've been good.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
Overall the cost is pretty reasonable compared to many other clinics across the country. I would have liked to see them be more helpful in finding the lowest cost alternative for medications sourced locally (I did that myself and provided my feedback to them but not sure this is being shared with anyone else).
Describe Adam Griffin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
Dr. Griffin was open to transfering 2 embryos after I had 2 eSET failures, and I am proceeding with my next FET transfering 2 as well and he is in support of this approach.

Dr. Griffin explained everything to us including how fertility treatment works in the body (i took Femera and had IUI in the same cycle) He explained risks and benefits. The only thing I didn’t agree with is that he said with sperm donor, some couples choose not to tell their child(ren) and some do and that “either way it works out” which is not really true according to research. So I wish there had been more attention paid to the social-emotional part of going into the decision.

So I wish there had been more attention paid to the social-emotional part of going into the decision. Luckily I’m a therapist so I could mostly navigate that but I think for other patients there should be more counseling/education/discussion around that.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Adam Griffin at Strong Fertility Center (U of Rochester)?
Everything was explained to us, every question answered, we never felt rushed. We were given choices.
Describe the protocols Adam Griffin used in your cycles at Strong Fertility Center (U of Rochester) and their degree of success.
First it was determined through blood test that I have slight hypothyroid so in order to give us the best chances at chirping pregnancy I began Synthroid for a few months and my levels were monitored. After determining male factor infertility and we decided to use donor sperm, we were given three options - 1) track my cycle and use ovulation/LH surge monitoring and inseminate. 2) That plus femara to increase egg production. 3) 1+2+ injection. We decided to go for option 2. When we went in for insemination they did an ultrasound and told me there were two mature follicles meaning a possibility of twins and asked if we were ok with that possibility. If we were not ok with that, they would not have done IUI that day and we would have waited until the next cycle. We decided to go forward because even with two eggs there is a possibility that one or even none will be fertilized. Our first cycle produced twins! I am 33 weeks along and they have been very healthy so far!
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They explained everything they saw on ultrasound. They were kind and personable. Even when I have come back since achieving pregnancy they are all very nice and excited for us, tell us to send pics when the babies are born, etc.

Describe the protocols Adam Griffin used in your cycles at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates and their degree of success.
We started with femara with ovidrel trigger and timed intercourse. I was able to have 3 pregnancies with this protocol but all were chemical pregnancies. We then moved to follistim and ovidrel trigger with IUI, all of those cycles were unsuccessful. We did 2 rounds of IVF where my eggs were retrieved and immediately frozen to wait for my next cycle to fertilize. One cycle was negative and the other was a chemical pregnancy. Then we did IVF with fresh transfer, that cycle was negative. I took about a year and a half break and then we went back and tried femara again, and elected to do laparoscopic surgery to check for endometriosis. During the prep for that surgery I discovered I was pregnant with an ectopic pregnancy where I lost my left tube. During the surgery to remove the ectopic pregnancy Dr. Griffin found some endometriosis and performed ovarian drilling for my pcos. That surgery was in October 2017 and I have been on a break since trying to decide what the next step for me is.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Most of the nursing staff is very nice. I did have an issue with one nurse but Dr. Griffin personally addressed it when I brought it to his attention.
Describe your experience with Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
They are working on updating their clinic and coming up to the times with technology. A strength would be the ease of being able to speak with someone, they always have an on call doctor and return calls quickly.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
My health insurance always covered my times intercourse and IUI cycles. The two frozen egg cycles I did were part of a study so I only had to pay for medications and the fresh IVF was somewhere around $4,000
Describe Adam Griffin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
Dr. Griffin made his suggestions based on my personal history and listened when I wanted to transfer multiple embryos.

When we first called to make our appointment, I knew we wanted to make our appointment with Dr. Griffin because he came highly referred to us. We were very comfortable after meeting him. He listened to our million questions, answered them all very thoroughly and explained step by step what the next steps would be. My husband and I went through tons of testing and eventually surgery because he couldn't figure out what the cause of our infertility could be. He covered all bases and really gave us options as to what we were comfortable with. We always left his office with a little bit of hope. In fact, were still going through treatment but have remained hopeful along the way. He has a way of being so kind without sugar coating things. I highly recommend him.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates?
To stay open minded. I think that's the main component when going through infertility.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates?
We went in very concerned as to why it is taking so long because we had our daughter so easily. We are getting older and couldn't figure out what could be wrong. He has done everything, including surgery to find an answer. He always listens to our concerns and is very empathetic to our situation.
Describe the protocols Adam Griffin used in your cycles at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates and their degree of success.
We started by getting lots of blood work, semen analysis, and HSG. I did three cycles of femara; two of which were timed intercourse. I produced beautiful follicles but did not get pregnant so we mutually decided to do a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. He found a few polyps and mild endo. From there we decided to do an iui cycle. Again, I did. It get pregnant. We decided maybe Ivf would offer the best chance of us getting pregnant.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff always has a smile on their faces. They are very informative and understanding regarding what I'm going through. In fact, a few of them have went through infertility treatments themselves so it's nice to hear their stories.
Describe your experience with Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
They are a very busy clinic so sometimes it's hard to get appointments as quick as you would like. Anytime I call in, they are very pleasant. They really do work with you financially and seem to understand this journey can be rough. I have been able to make payments which really helps with the financial stress of it all.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
I can say very affordable! My medications, blood work, and ultrasounds were covered by insurance but the iui was only $450 a cycle. The Ivf cycle is $4000 for one fresh transfer and $6000 for two. Also, they offer a plan where you can put some down and make payments for a year.

Two were fully with Dr. Griffin.... All three protocols for the three cycles were different each time. I feel like with each failure, he gained knowledge and tweaked things for the next cycle. Everything was very clearly explained to me and my husband before starting the cycles.

How was your experience with Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates?
Dr. Griffin is an incredibly caring professional. He wants so badly for his patients to achieve pregnancy. He takes his time and answers all of your questions. He has a great deal of experience compared to others. He puts a lot of thought and time into your protocol too. A truly wonderful Doctor!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates?
No advice needed, he is wonderful.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates?
Dr. Griffin is an exceptional doctor and human being- he does not sugar coat or make unfulfillable promises. I had met with him at least half a dozen times and he has never ever rushed me or my husband or the dozens of questions we have every time. He gueninely cares and that is very obvious when you meet with him.
Describe the protocols Adam Griffin used in your cycles at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates and their degree of success.
This is hard to list as I've been through so much in the past several years. I was through three ivf cycles with this clinic. Two were fully with Dr. Griffin and the third with the new doctor in the practice. All three protocols for the three cycles were different each time. I feel like with each failure, he gained knowledge and tweaked things for the next cycle. Everything was very clearly explained to me and my husband before starting the cycles.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates. (Assigned nurse: Jen )
Jen is wonderful- great with answering questions!
Describe your experience with Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
I can't say enough positive things about this clinic. I know that some complain of the wait- but it's only because these doctors care and take the time they need with each patient to ensure that all patients understand their care and protocol. The only negative is there are a few staff and/or nurses that can be very short with you or share their personal opinions when not really asked for. Dr. Griffin is so wonderful though so I just never let that bother me.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
Unfortunately, New York state has a general clause on infertility and once you move onto ivf, you have little to no coverage at all. Their cycles are very fairly priced.

Describe the protocols Adam Griffin used in your cycles at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates and their degree of success.
We only did 1 cycle of Clomid while we awaited our blood test results. I was not able to ovulate. When we received our results, it was discovered that I have premature ovarian insufficiency. It was very unlikely that we would be able to retrieve more than 1egg, so we moved forward with IVF using donor eggs. The first set of donor eggs didn't fertilize. The 2nd set gave us 2 fertilized eggs. We did the IVF transfer, but neither of them implanted.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Everyone was very friendly and supportive.
Describe your experience with Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
The clinic was remodeled while we were obtaining treatment. They handled it all very well. The only down side of the new setup, is that it seems hard for the staff to keep information as private/protected since their staff area is more open. The whole waiting room can hear conversations being had with staff at the front desk. Other than that, everything was great!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
My insurance covered most of the cost. We had minimal prescription copays. We did have to cover full cost of donor eggs.
Describe Adam Griffin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
We were given the option of either. Dr. Griffin felt multiple transfers would increase our odds of conceiving & we agreed.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
At the beginning of our process I spoke to one nurse exclusively for months; however when I received the news of my negative pregnancy it was not from the nurse I had fostered a relationship with; instead it was a nurse I had never spoken to- which was very difficult. I was taken aback that I never heard from the nurse who I consistently spoke to. At time, It is very difficult to not speak to one nurse consistently and having to retell the situation multiple times.
Describe your experience with Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
I fully trust my care with Dr. Griffin, he treats his patients with compassion and respect. With Dr. Griffin I feel my goal to have a child will be achieved. As far as weaknesses, there have been situations where some of my care has been missed or confused by the nursing team. I feel as though the clinic's high volume of patients leads to an inability for individualized care and often important items are unintentionally overlooked.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Adam Griffin at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
My cost of care has been significant as it is not covered under insurance. Currently our cost has been $23,000.
Describe Adam Griffin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
My transfer was with Dr. Sullivan and when we came into the office, it was first time hearing the suggestion for transferring one vs. two. I was surprised by the discussion and our need to make such a large decision in just a few minutes. I do wish there was more time to discuss and decide.

The nursing staff were always kind and compassionate. Sometimes I did feel like they were overwhelmed and running late with phone calls, etc.

A few thousand dollars out of pocket, our insurance covered the majority so I don't remember the full costs.
Describe Adam Griffin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
My first two transfers were eSET and both failed.

I thought he [Dr. Adam Griffin] was very nice and explained everything in a way I could understand and answered all my questions without making me feel like any of them where stupid questions...The nurses do the IUIs and sonograms, the doctors do the procedures, surgery, imaging, ect. Sometimes you see the other doctors in the practice for the procedures, they were all very nice. No one was judgmental about me being single, it was briefly discussed (just in that I would be using donor sperm) at the first consultation and that was it.
