My experience as a patient [of Dr. Masbou] was extremely positive. She was able to explain each step of the multiple processes involved in an IVF Cycle. Her knowledge and expertise is evident, as she is able to explain treatment plans, treatments, and the rationale behind them. Dr. Masbou was able to help prepare me both mentally and physically for the demands and changes that would occur along with Egg Retrieval, Embryo Creation and Preservation, Frozen Embryo Transfer, and Early Pregnancy. She was extremely responsive in a prompt manner to the any questions, concerns, and nervousness that arose over the course of treatment. Her positive and optimistic attitude works wonders during an extremely stressful time and process. As a patient I was fortunate to have been under her care. It is evident she has a passion for her field and expertise and any patient is in the safest hands under her care.

Describe the protocols Alexis Masbou used in your cycles at Kofinas Fertility Group and their degree of success.
Egg Retrievals: Dr. Masbou used Estrogen Priming during my Ovarian Stimulation in hopes of achieving optimal results in embryos reaching the blastocyst stage. The more embryos you have the greater likelihood it will lead to a live birth. Laparoscopy: Dr. Masbou diagnosed and advised removal of one of my Fallopian Tubes, which had hydrosalpinx, which can effect treatment success rates significantly. Embryo Transfer: Dr. Masbou had me prepare for a Frozen Embryo Transfer using Lupron. This is effective in quieting your reproductive system down. She also helped me manage a blood clotting disorder using a blood thinner to prevent miscarriage.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kofinas Fertility Group. (Assigned nurse: Lindsay)
All of the nursing staff were amazing throughout the course of my treatment. Lindsay was extremely helpful with all questions, concerns, and vaccination tutorials. She also was prompt with relaying results.
Describe your experience with Kofinas Fertility Group.
Kofinas Fertility is an extremely well oiled machine. It has been around for quite some time, is staffed by the best and most efficient doctors in the city. When searching for a clinic and torn between two, when it came to Kofinas, the reoccurring quote I heard from multiple people in the Tri-State area was: “They get everybody pregnant.” Although nothing is perfect, they have been nothing but perfect towards me. There is no stone left unturned from prognosis to treatment. They made one of the scariest and most helpless times of my husbands’ and my life so much less frightening and way more manageable.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Alexis Masbou at Kofinas Fertility Group.
Most of my care was covered under my insurance plan. Anything additional, such as PGS Testing were presented to us an in open-ended fashion, with costs, pros, and cons on the table in an honest manner.
Describe Alexis Masbou's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kofinas Fertility Group.
