Dr. Crane are provided us with a wonderful experience. He had a lovely bedside manner and during each visit communicated his interest in us. He was fairly accessible. He was upfront about our odds when we first started the process, not overly pessimistic but neither did he set unrealistic expectations. There were a couple of instances where we weren't completely clear on the information he provided to us but in each instance he was able to provide clarity when requested. Overall it was a positive experience and I would definitely recommend him and have recommended him to my friends.

While Dr. Kreiner provided us with a good deal of information I would still recommend that my friend do their own homework and get informed so that they can ask the right questions.

Describe the protocols David Kreiner used in your cycles at Long Island IVF and their degree of success.
As informative as Dr. Kreiner was, he never did actually provide me with the name of the protocol that he was using come to I think of it. But I did have was a list of medication that I was supposed to take. Our objective was to be conservative and produce a good amount of eggs but for me not to be overstimulated since I didn't want to have to make a decision about discarding embryos. Meds: Menopur, Ganirelix, Gonal F, Progesterone

he [Dr. David Kreiner] was able to diagnose us with male factor ( we saw another doctor there who never mentioned it ) weaknesses is that he treats you like a number not a human ... he has poor bedside manor most days. He never changed protocol and had no real answers or explanation for us after 2 years and 3 losses other than “seems like bad luck “... No rationale . Very cookie cutter plans. We asked to change something to yield better results but did not happen .

He uses the same one each time. Birth control for a month . Then start estrace for a few days then start injections. No rationale . Very cookie cutter plans. We asked to change something to yield better results but did not happen .
Describe your experience with your nurse at Long Island IVF. (Assigned nurse: Jessica )
Got the job done but not very warm or caring
Describe your experience with Long Island IVF.
Some of the staff are very rude when you call. Some of the head nurses are so terrible to deal with . They just seem like robots who do this all the time and have no true compassion for what I went through. They did not make things easy and many times caused a lot of emotional heartache and made things very difficult. However the morning monitoring nurses were so great !

Morning monitoring appointments went smoothly . However I would show up 45 minutes before it opened to make sure I was first in line so I could be to work on time.

About 15,000-25,000 depending on PGS

Overall a strong preference for single transfer if you are under 35.

He [Dr. Kreiner] made you feel like your time was important and that he cared about helping...He was great for all textbook infertility issues. Anything with very complicated issues was not something he seemed interested in entertaining like looking into immunological components. While in my case never was able to get pregnant. I inquired endometriosis is an autoimmune problem but the thought of immunological complications was basically disregarded and said he didn’t believe in that.

How was your experience with David Kreiner at Long Island IVF?
He was great for all textbook infertility issues. Anything with very complicated issues was not something he seemed interested in entertaining like looking into immunological components. While in my case never was able to get pregnant. I inquired endometriosis is an autoimmune problem but the thought of immunological complications was basically disregarded and said he didn’t believe in that. He wanted to do egg donor very expensive process but we never got pregnant so I couldn’t justify it and figured adoption would be. A better option especially if we could get a tangible result. Persistence paid off and Dr Braverman figured out the problem.

If you are not textbook and have stage 4 don’t waist your time go to a Reproductive immunologist because I wish I knew sooner I might have 2 kids already.
