I have met Dr. Keefe once with my partner and never saw him again. Nurse Carol has been my primary contact and caregiver. After 3 clomid treatments and 2 IUIs , we have not been successful yet...I would have appreciated a closer relationship with my doctor, especially having gone through 3 unsuccessful cycles...He didn’t reply my email where I explained what has and hasn’t happened the 5 months since we initially met with him and followed his treatment protocol. We are in the process of moving forward with IVF after IUIs and I haven’t been able to get a hold of my doctor to get a roadmap for treatment so I can prepare for cost.

Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU. (Assigned nurse: Carol)
Nurse Carol is the best thing in this place. She is thorough , professional, no nonsense, detailed and good communicator. Always immediately calls back with answers. Really like her
Describe your experience with NYU.
Gets very busy- some days feels like a factory. Check in is automated so it goes fast and smooth. What I really had trouble with that they take limited insurance. And won’t help you with submitting claims to The insurance company which most other doctors will do. Coordinators nurses and billing staff is very responsive. I have not been able to reach my doctor ever again after meeting him initially for consultation. He didn’t reply my email where I explained what has and hasn’t happened the 5 months since we initially met with him and followed his treatment protocol. We are in the process of moving forward with IVF after IUIs and I haven’t been able to get a hold of my doctor to get a roadmap for treatment so I can prepare for cost.

What I loved the most is that he [Dr. David Keefe] described very complicated things in a basic way so that i would understand. Instead of a patient, he made me feel like a WARRIOR!... Expect a long time to get an appt with Dr. Keefe.... He spoke Portuguese, as do I so it helped that we had something in common . ... It sort of felt like a factory, the nurses went by my birth date, not name :(

Describe your experience with NYU.
The clinic was clean which was important . The waiting room was kind of sad, all you see are women with similar issues waiting to be seen. The wait time was rather long too which gives you too much time to think of negative things. One day, while waiting for an appt, I saw what I assumed was a past patient, she had brought in hee baby to introduce to Dr. Keefe and the Receptionist, that made me feel so hopeful.

Very very early morning monitoring which I hated but it was necessary or id. e late for work all the time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Keefe at NYU.
Since insurance covered the majority, all I had to pay out of pocket was 1k

He [Dr david Keefe] is warm and relatable, making me feel comfortable while remaining professional. I trusted him implicitly and am so glad we did. I only actually met with him once or twice - his team is amazing...The team at NYU fertility is amazing. They felt like family. I was always seen promptly and felt I received the best care...Insurance covered my care. I think one round of IVF would have been upwards of $25k
