He [Dr Azim] was there to comfort me when I cried because I didn't get pregnant during two cycles with him. At one point he asked if I wanted IVF and I said I did but I could not afford it and he quickly said "we will find a way to get you the drugs for less money." He was simply wonderful.

How was your experience with Amr Azim?
Dr. Azim works 24/7 for his patients. He saw me on many Saturdays and Sundays. He is extremely precise and usually backs up his statements with research. He guided me to be patient and allow a pregnancy with a singleton instead of upping the doses of medicine to release more eggs and increase risk for twins. He is very supportive of having a singleton and tries to avoid multiples. He did all of my testing and appointments personally and is very tech savvy and uses his phone and e-mail. Even today we are in touch as I try to navigate my next pregnancy and the Zika virus. I recommend him 100%, especially if you do not want to be a number in a large practice. Finally, he accepted whatever my insurance paid and I did not come out of pocket for his help.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Amr Azim?
Dr. Azim will encourage genetic testing so be ready for that.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Azim gave generously of his time to evaluate our history trying to get pregnant and give me his feedback on the best options for us. He knew my name after my first appointment. He was there to comfort me when I cried because I didn't get pregnant during two cycles with him. At one point he asked if I wanted IVF and I said I did but I could not afford it and he quickly said "we will find a way to get you the drugs for less money." He was simply wonderful.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
N/A for Dr. Azim. He treats patients personally.
Describe your experience with New York City IVF.
Dr. Azim's clinic is basically all him and his lovely receptionist.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Amr Azim.
I have Aetna insurance and Dr. Amir accepted what my insurance paid. I have no idea how much that is, but I didn't come out of pocket, except for small amounts for the medicine.

How was your experience with Amr Azim?
Dr. Azim was great and particularly supportive through a miscarriage. I never felt pressured into any treatment - Dr. Azim explained all the options to me (pros and cons) while sharing his professional advice without pushing any particular alternative. I felt like the entire office was vested in the success of your treatment. Given my demanding job, I also very much appreciated the early appointment hours and Dr. Azim's punctuality at most all appointments (and there were many).
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Amr Azim?
I think Dr. Azim may initially come off as very clinical but the more you work with him, the more you realize that it's all driven by a desire to help you and to have your fertility treatment succeed. He really cares for his patients.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Azim was incredibly understanding of how trying fertility difficulties could be emotionally and physically. Even though my difficulties were not nearly as problematic as many others, I always felt that Dr. Azim took the time to explain the procedures to me and never discounted my frustrations.
Describe the protocols Amr Azim used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I had high AMH and wasn't ovulating. I had tried Clomid (unmonitored) with my OBGYN for one cycle without success. Dr. Azim monitored me on Letrozole. I got pregnant in the second cycle (miscarriage) and third cycle (healthy baby girl). During treatment, I was monitored throughout for egg growth/development, to determine when to administer the hcg trigger shot and for hormone levels after. In the first weeks of the pregnancies, I had frequent sonograms to check for development. After my miscarriage, Dr. Azim was very helpful in working towards figuring out what may have gone wrong and how it could be prevented thereafter. We are now happy parents to a baby girl.

My partner and I knew very little about the egg freezing process and our options, and he [Dr Amr Azim]spent a lot of time with us during our consultation educating us about the process and helping us decide what we wanted to do. He was also very flexible with us in terms of timing and kept us informed during all the ultrasounds, etc. I had some questions for him at night and over the weekend while administering the medication, and he was always available. I found the process to be much easier and less stressful than I expected, and I credit that to him. I felt that he really cared about his patients and having a successful outcome for each patient.

How was your experience with Amr Azim?
Dr. Azim is an amazing doctor. He is very knowledgeable and caring. My partner and I knew very little about the egg freezing process and our options, and we spent a lot of time with us during our consultation educating us about the process and helping us decide what we wanted to do. He was also very flexible with us in terms of timing and kept us informed during all the ultrasounds, etc. I had some questions for him at night and over the weekend while administering the medication, and he was always available. I found the process to be much easier and less stressful than I expected, and I credit that to him. I felt that he really cared about his patients and having a successful outcome for each patient.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Azim always took the time to explain everything to my partner and me and was very available (including on weekends and nights) and caring and interested in our input and reactions throughout the entire process.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The office is very small. It is only two doctors, one nurse (or perhaps physician's assistant or resident) and an office manager. I mostly spoke with Dr. Azim or his office manager Tihara. Tihara is very organized, nice and personal; she got me an appointment quickly and helped coordinate insurance, etc.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Amr Azim.
$8500 for the treatment cycle and retrieval. I spent approximately $2000 on medications and long-term storage will be approximately $600 a year.
