We felt like our case was unique to us and that Dr. Sandler truly cared about us by the end of the consultation...as warm and direct about our test results and gave us a clear plan moving forward. He answered all of our questions and did not make us feel rushed in our initial appointment. We have had a difficult time getting in touch with him due to Covid, but the staff at RMA have been very responsive and communicate between us and Dr. Sandler when we need more information about something.
We’ve spoken with many nurses [at RMA] over the phone due to Covid and the fact that we’re out of town the majority of the time. They are all very responsive and communicate efficiently among each other so that they can all be up to speed on our treatment plan. Ali in particular has been very warm and encouraging!... is a huge practice, which has benefits and drawbacks. Each time I’ve done an IUI in the office it is with a different doctor (likely due to fewer staff working during Covid). The call service employees are very friendly, however I always have to leave a message for a nurse or doctor to call back. The call back typically happens within an hour. I would have liked to be in closer contact with my doctor, however the nurses are very knowledgeable and can answer almost all of our questions.

Dr. Sandler is a wonderful physician who really cares about his patients. I loved that he adjusted my treatment plan and when things weren't working out with one medication, we switched it. Dr. Sandler is proactive, not just reactive, which is extremely important in the course of fertility treatment. Although RMA is very busy and truly runs a large-scale operation, I found them to be extremely sensitive, considerate, and reachable. Dr. Sandler is an amazing physician but he is not exactly "warm and fuzzy," so I would keep that in mind if you are someone who needs a doctor who is more laid back. I found Dr. Sandler to be completely honest about expectations, while also maintaining a level of reassurance to me given my age and medical history.
I found all of the nurses at RMA to be great, but Dr. Sandler's nurses Danielle and Alyssa and beyond fantastic. They always reassured me and helped me through every step of the process. They were approachable, and if I called RMA about something specific, the nurses would call me back ASAP, often within the hour. Based on my prior experience within medical offices, RMA is unparalleled as far as sensitivity, efficiency, compassion, and overall excellence in general. I am so grateful that I was recommended to RMA, and the nurses in particular made the experience as pleasant as possible. I am forever grateful to Danielle and Alyssa for their expertise, kindness, and compassion.

If you see that the treatment is not going as planned, schedule a conversation with Dr. Sandler to discuss alternative options.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Benjamin Sandler at RMA of New York?
I cannot sing the praises enough of RMA New York. They are so efficient, professional, and caring. The doctors are extremely busy and have a lot of patients to see, but I always felt like they answered my questions, and if I had follow up questions I would then speak to a nurse. The nurses were beyond responsive, approachable, and extremely sensitive and helpful. Dr. Sandler would tell it to me like it was, he was realistic about expectations, and he did not give me false hope. Dr. Sandler gave me options, he recommended what was best, and it resulted in a viable pregnancy. I will forever be grateful to him and his practice.

Describe your experience with RMA of New York.
RMA is a remarkably well-oiled machine. When you schedule an appointment, they handle everything with care and efficiency and you can get in and out and go about your day. I loved the early morning appointments and knowing that I wasn't going to spend all day in a doctor's office, especially because of the frequency of visits relating to fertility treatments. The waiting room is nice and comfy, and the office becomes, in a way, your home away from home, because you spend so much time there. Although you do not always see the same nurses/doctors, they are transparent with each other about your level of care, so you do not feel like you are just being shuffled from person to person. It is a large clinic, so you will likely be seeing different doctors at different appointments, but all of the doctors are fantastic, so you are in good hands! Although Dr. Sandler was my assigned doctor (and I think he is phenomenal), I also saw Dr. Grunfeld quite frequently (I guess our schedules were more aligned) and he is also a phenomenal physician.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Benjamin Sandler at RMA of New York.
I have excellent insurance, so I usually had a $40 co-pay when I would go to RMA, but otherwise all of the procedures/blood work was covered. For the shots prior to the IUI, they were $60 each month (my insurance covered the bulk of it), and the medication Clomid/Letrozole varied between $5-$10 (my insurance covered most of it)

He [Dr. Benjamin Sandler] right away told me that with my conditions (mostly PCOS but also unexplained infertility) he suggested we move straight to IVF to increase chances of getting pregnant. He also gave me the option of doing more IUI treatments, but didn't think they would work for me...He showed me different statistics, but also talked about how my personal conditions could influence results. He gave me options, talked about what he thought would work for me and advised on how he thought I should proceed.
The clinic [RMA of NY] is very well run. Monitoring appointments are very convenient as the clinic opens up early. If I came by 7 am, I'd be out no later than 8 each time, which gave me plenty of time to get to work...The nurses are wonderful! They always answered all questions and returned my calls promptly.

Dr. Sandler is an expert in the field. He is honest and compassionate and kept me informed every step of the way....Dr. Sandler navigates the stress while providing realistic expectations. I did two rounds of IVF and was not successful....I took several months off to regroup and went the egg donor route. He explained the entire process, the statistics and the risks. Dr. Sandler was compassionate and patient with me. He was honest yet comforting.
Strength is that they [RMA - East Side] get results. Weakness is that it is a very busy practice and it is frustrating during the monitoring process. Also when you call, if is quite difficult to speak to the doctor. You always get a nurse first... Dará Berg is the specialist for donor egg recipients. She was incredibly responsive, compassionate and well-versed in the process....I paid for egg freezing ($10,000), IVF ($10,000 each time). Insurance covered $10,000 of embryo transfer with donor egg (which total cost was $23,000)

....from the getgo Dr. Sandler was very honest...He did not want to continue a cycle if it wasn't looking good, and was cognizant of me as a person.

How was your experience with Benjamin Sandler at RMA of New York?
I think Dr. Sandler was a very smart doctor who handled a pretty textbook case of diagnosed infertility very well. I was a VERY nervous patient, and he handled me well, was very honest and practical, and got me to where I needed to be. Sometimes I wanted more compassion, but also understood our goals were aligned, and he was doing everything he could to get me to where I wanted to be,

I felt like from the getgo Dr. Sandler was very honest- never giving me false hope, but making me believe he would do anything he could to ensure I was successful. He spent over an hour with me at our first meeting, and was always patient, honest, and practical. He did not want to continue a cycle if it wasn't looking good, and was cognizant of me as a person. He is not what I would describe as "warm and fuzzy" but inspired confidence in me as a patient that he would do whatever he could to ensure the best out come.

Keri was the nurse I worked with primarily in between my first series of IVF when I had twins and when I went back for a singleton embryo transfer. She was unbelievable.

Dr Sandler is very direct, has an incredible human kindness never found in other infertility specialists; some times I did not like what I hear but he kept focusing me in the right direction we even decided to take a six month break that gave us the chance to come back with a successful treatment. he even gave me his cell number to make sure I could call whenever I wanted...He is very direct, and may not hold your hand as others, being a foreign physician (he was born out of the country) may have a different cultural background but showed genuine concern and has been known for not taking money out of people who have no chance to get pregnant.
Very efficient, we arrived at 6:15 am [at RMA - Downtown] and they were incredibly empathetic of our situation...Being an out of town patient, they were in the middle of Manhattan which provided easy access, lots of traffic during working hours but easy to access...He [Dr. Sandler] was very kind explained every step clearly and interrupted one cycle when he saw my ovaries were not responding accordingly...

Sandler was nice and he explained everything very well, even though we had no luck in both our treatments with him (one miscarriage and one negative test with donors eggs), I really really like the structure/administration they have at the clinic, they say they will call at 5 with results and the really do. They work by the book and i like that very much.

Dr Sandler was very personable and remembered previous discussions and was very honest...The entire staff [at RMA of New York] is great, but I wouldn't recommend this facility if the male partner is the problem.
