He [Dr. Kreiner] doesn’t make you feel rushed, his bedside manor and compassion...He’s so sweet, takes his time with you. He goes over everything with you and you feel like he’s just as invested in your journey as you are. He gives you his honest opinion and explains everything that you should expect and he’s funny too.... Before we found out we only had 1 viable embryo to transfer My Dr. suggested single transfer because I was a healthy 35yr old and the risks with multiples were higher.
The nursing staff at Long Island IVF is absolutely amazing! I love them all, the nicest, friendliest compassionate women! They are wonderful... All of the doctors, nurses and lab technicians are great at the Melville location. It is so nice to have everything done in one office too! From blood work, to lab tests, to sonos, exams, operating room. It really makes it so much easier.... IVF it was around $14,000 plus meds. Genetic testing was $200.00

He doesn’t make you feel rushed, his bedside manor and compassion
Describe the protocols David Kreiner used in your cycles at RMA Long Island IVF (formerly Long Island IVF) and their degree of success.
We did IUI’s with clomid with the HCG shot and progesterone, unfortunately none of them worked just like the ones at my regular OB’s office. Then we did an IVF cycle with Follistim, gonal F, HCG, progesterone in oil, estrace, baby aspirin. We did the egg retrieval and got 7 eggs out, 4 fertilized and 1 made it to day 5 for the transfer. I got a positive pregnancy test and my second beta test showed my numbers doubling. My first sono went well waiting for my second to confirm there’s a heartbeat.

While sitting in front of Dr Kreiner, I felt like he did care. But I wasn't more then a chart he was reading. He didn't remember me or take time to get to know us. We only spent about 15 minutes with him....I asked him to be very aggressive since we were paying out of pocket, but he was not. I was on a very minimal protocol of medications that only resulted in 2 low quality embryos. My cycle should have been cancelled....I was on 3 menopur a day for almost 15 days because my follicles weren't growing and he didn't want to cancel.
The nursing staff [Long Island IVF] was great when you were face to face. But they see so many patients daily, its a factory....Prescriptions not called in. Nurses saying we should cancel multiple times, but the doctor not wanting to. So I would go in for my every other day sonograms and hear the word cancel over and over and how bad they felt for me.... Communication needs to greatly improve. Everything was told to me verbally, I had to take my own notes. Their office forgot to call in a prescription I needed that night and I had to spend time on the phone finding someone who could call it in.
How was your experience with David Kreiner at RMA Long Island IVF (formerly Long Island IVF)?
I have no doubt he is an excellent doctor. He is smart and very knowledgeable. But he is missing the personal touch. Conversations seemed surface level even though this is a very emotional and personal experience.

I was on 3 menopur a day for almost 15 days because my follicles weren't growing and he didn't want to cancel. After the first 7 days the injections were changed to intramuscular which did help. Dr Kreiner did want me to hyper stimulate so he was cautious (which i did NOT appreciate since we were paying out of pocket)

Communication needs to greatly improve. Everything was told to me verbally, I had to take my own notes. Their office forgot to call in a prescription I needed that night and I had to spend time on the phone finding someone who could call it in. I often left feeling overwhelmed. I wish they would send emails with all your notes and results. Also, the phlebotomist were actually amazing people. They got to know me more then the rest of the staff. I got hugs from all of them on transfer day. HOWEVER, they should be told to NOT complain about their kids or their pregnancies in front of patients.

Prescriptions not called in. Nurses saying we should cancel multiple times, but the doctor not wanting to. So I would go in for my every other day sonograms and hear the word cancel over and over and how bad they felt for me. Only to get a call later saying Dr Kreiner didn't want to cancel. A doctor who was supposed to do a water sonogram, told me my HCG was too high (it was under 2) and wouldn't do it, delaying my treatment. I told the staff multiple times i had a vacation planned, they should have noted it but instead forgot about it and kept trying to schedule things conflicting with my vacation.

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 .
Morning monitoring appointments [at Long Island IVF] 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...Overall a strong preference for single transfer if you are under 35...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 !

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.
Clinic [Long Island IVF] was clean, typically I did not have to wait very long for my appointments, I was in and out...I would call on one or two occasions being provided information by one nurse that conflicted with information provided by another. Nothing that wasn't resolved soon after....Nursing staff was pretty efficient and forthcoming with information, I don't remember them being overly empathetic or compassionate but certainly no issues with them.

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. 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.
There was a lot of copays daily to get monitoring [at Long Island IVF]. I’m not sure you need the level of monitoring after going elsewhere and not needing daily blood work and soon.

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.

He [Dr. Kreiner] always knew my case inside and out... The only downside was that I had asked him to do a uterine biopsy and he said there was no need. Then later after getting pregnant naturally with my ectopic I found out that there was an infection that could’ve been cleared up easily had he done the biopsy... The dr doesn’t truly listen. He just think he knows what’s best even after a failed cycle with perfect embryos he still just repeats the same protocol. That was very upsetting to me and my husband and was a devastatingly sad time for us
