During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr. Rybak always made it a point to make sure I was comfortable. Even during morning monitoring he never rushed me and was empathetic to the circumstances and answered all questions. He has even called me in between treatments (even on the weekend) to make sure that I was "OK" and that we were progressing as expected.
Describe the protocols Eli Rybak used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
I started with Dr. Rybak back in 2013. Treatments varied from then to now as then we did co-ivf. I was on Lupron 2 week kit, Estrace 2 mg, Medrol, Antibiotic, and progesterone in oil for transfer. My wife was on other medications for retrieval. At the end of 2017 to the beginning of this year, we did 3 IUI cycles. I was on Gonal-F (dosage ranged from 75-100 units). Recently, for retrieval I was on Gonal-F (375-450 units), Ganirelix (250 mcg), low dose HCG (50 units), and Lupron for trigger. I had always responded well to treatments so the protocol was the same for all IUIs and for retrieval I responded well too.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Lisa Pomponio)
Lisa knew that fully understanding results and treatments were important to me. She always returned my calls same day and addressed all questions and concerns before 5 PM every time I called. If she was not going to be in the office during when I would normally get results or updates from her, she would email or call to let me know and who would be covering for her. I never felt like a bother to Lisa and she was always extremely patient with me!
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
This clinic's strengths include: excellent staff (from the receptionist, lab techs, nurses, doctors and administrative staff). The monitoring hours are excellent because it allows us to go in for monitoring before work so that we don't have to request time off. The team at RMANJ take pride in their work and it shows.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
Monitoring was super convenient! Super organized and for the most part you were seen fairly quickly.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey.
Medications were almost fully covered for all cycles during co-IVF, IUIs, retrieval and upcoming transfer. I paid my copays for medications with the exception of Low dose HCG that was not covered and Endometrium. In total, I have paid around $1000.00 in copays. For our first retrieval and first two FET, we paid out of pocket as we were not covered under the NJ state mandate. We paid approximately $22,000. This year, the IUIs were covered under my insurance and we were only responsible for copays and coinsurance. Since we have now reached our lifetime fertility max, we paid $4.475 for the upcoming transfer cycle and about $3,800 for the retrieval. We are waiting for the claims to be processed by the insurance company to determine if we are still responsible for more. In addition to the costs of treatment, we have paid storage fees as well as donor sperm (totaling over $6,000).

How was your experience with Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey?
I am a genetic carrier for fragile x syndrome. My ovarian reserve is extremely low. Going through three cycles in less than a year and a half was extremely emotionally and financially taxing. Dr rybak took away all the fears that comes along with IVF and PGD. He explained procedures well, during retrievals and transfers he was always calm warm and smiling. He made us feel comfortable by speaking to us not at us. A big plus was that he is also an Orthodox Jew and addressed all the complicated questions that come about with IVF. Wether a procedure fell out over the sabbath or holiday or how to get the proper supervision. He always was able to direct us properly. Something he did that really touched us before he transferred to of my frozen eggs he paused and said a meaningful prayer it meant the world to us. I see how he deals with patients of all religions and races and he treats us all the same. His compassion and love for helping bringing new souls into this world means everything to him
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr rybak is there for you and not only his pay check. He really gives you the time you need to make sure you understand your treatment. He will spend time in office on the phone and really come up with the best plan of action
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey?
He prayed with us He laughed with us He personally called me after a negative pregnancy test He related to our religious needs He delt with compassion and honesty He was there for us every minute of our long journey And upon discharge he shook my husband hand firmly with a huge smile on his face. We will see you again for your next baby.
Describe the protocols Eli Rybak used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
After each cycle the medications where adjusted each plan was sought through. When We saw after the first cycle I needed a very high dose of gonal-f . After I referred my older sister to dr rybak I told my sister to tell dr rybak we are sisters and if he could go straight to the highest dose of gonal-g because lower didn’t work for me. He listened and thank god they retrieved one 3 eggs . Only one fertilized and made it through PGD and she is joe pregnant
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Rhonda Minot )
I spoke with my nurse Rhonda more than I spoke with my mom in a given week. No matter how many questions I had she was always patient and honest. She worked with me when I didn’t want to travel from Brooklyn to NJ for blood work. She was always making my religious concerns a priority. She was always upbeat and funny I always smiled when I spoke with her. She was so organized and made the whole process smooth and not overwhelming. Even though I saw her just once but spoke hundreds of times over the phone. I made a true friend.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
we travelled far from Brooklyn to RMA because of its lab success rate. Being a carrier for genetic Disease we wanted the best lab. And thank god we have baby and frozen embryos that are fragile x free. RMA was clean, professional. Never a long wait. Accommodating. Easy to deal with payment and bills. Warm staff. Extremely clean and sensitive to our needs

He explained treatment plans. When our results continued to lead to poor numbers he didn’t change the protocol which I wish he would have. He kept being optimistic that the treatment plan was a good one and that it just might result in success at some point. After 4 cycles of the same we decided to go for another opinion.... We used menopur, gonal f and cetrotide. We never went over 225 of menopur or 300 Gonal f. We used growth hormone once.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey?
Discuss other options for changing medication dosages, triggering earlier, transferring 3 day fresh embryos or not PGD testing. It seems he has a set protocol per patient and doesn’t seem to veer from it.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr. Rybak was always compassionate. He took the time to explain things. He made a point to reach out to me by phone. During monitoring and communicating with the nurses it felt less personal.

Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Rhonda)
Nursing didn’t feel personalized enough for me.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
Big, clean professional outfit. You could have any of the doctors do your monitoring, retrieval or transfer so don’t get too attached to anyone. The monitoring appointments were hit or miss. You could wait a very long time at times. Sometimes stand on a long line and stand ina crowded waiting room. They are strict about payment. They will not give you any instruction until your account shows it’s been paid. No exceptions.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
It was tough on my schedule because of limited hours and a lot of people coming at the same time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey.
My insurance covered most of it. Also with my insurance medications were discounted. Laser acupuncture they provided was not covered although acupuncture is covered by my insurance.

He only wanted to transfer PGD tested embryos

Dr Eli Ryback is was very informative in detail, and was patient with explaining certain details to me. He welcomed questions and concerns. He sympathized when things didn't go as planned, he was joyous when there was good news. Dr Ryback was very positive and optimistic.... At first I was told what my treatment would be without enough explanation. Once I pushed and showed that I wanted to be directly involved with my plan of care, Dr Ryback took the time to sit down with me and explain all of the pros, cons, and statistics regarding my treatment.

How was your experience with Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey?

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey?
If you have questions, make sure that you ask them and that you are satisfied with your answers. A lot of the back and forth conversation is on the phone (usually with a nurse.) You have the right to ask to meet with your doctor in person. As there are many important things to discuss in your treatment.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey?
I felt like I was treated more as a human than a number. I was treated with compassion. At first I was told what my treatment would be without enough explanation. Once I pushed and showed that I wanted to be directly involved with my plan of care, Dr Ryback took the time to sit down with me and explain all of the pros, cons, and statistics regarding my treatment. I felt a lot more confident about my plan of care after that. Dr Eli Ryback is very compassionate and acknowledged that I was, in fact, human.
Describe the protocols Eli Rybak used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
I don't remember specific dosages.. one thing that I remember was discussing whether or not I would have to use progesterone injections 2 weeks prior to transfer, up until 8 weeks of pregnancy. I would have liked not to use injections since they were painful. We were discussing the use of progesterone suppositories, but in the end, Dr Ryback wanted me to use the injections since we had not determined my ovulation cycle or if I was ovulating at all. He felt that the progesterone injections would be my best bet after transfer.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Bridget)
I was assigned a "personal nurse" but this was really not the case. She was my primary nurse, however, my nurse was really whoever was on call for that day. She was very clear with instructions for injections and such, but there were times when I felt that she "dropped the ball" on me when she would catch me by surprise with the plan of care - and I had not realized it would be so. It was hard to process that things weren't exactly clear. But she did remedy these "surprises" well and would explain the reasoning to me. There were times though that I felt she was rushed and I had considered asking for a different nurse, but I didn't know if that would really change anything.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
The clinic was clean and comfortable. In terms of Morning Monitoring, a staff member gave me a helpful tip to arrive 10 min before opening in order to beat the morning rush. I would arrive at 5:45am and wait for the doors to open at 6 so that I would be one of the first 5 patients of the day. I was in and out between blood work and ultrasounds in under 30 min (sometimes even 20 min.) If you show up at 7:30, you can expect to wait around for a while due to the volume of patients coming in at that time. The Englewood location was only for my initial consultation, morning monitoring, and meetings that I requested with my Doctor. All other procedures were done at Basking Ridge, NJ, as well as Saturday and Sunday monitoring.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
There was comfortable seating, it was a first come first served basis. So the earlier you arrived, the sooner you'd be seen. A nurse would come into the waiting room and call your first name. This did not bother me. It was run efficiently, which is what you want at 6 in the morning.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey.
About 95-99% of my bills were covered through insurance, (roughly $15,000+ for the injections, monitoring, and egg retreival.) I don't remember how much the transfer was (maybe $5,000-$10,000 but I honestly don't remember.) There is a $1200/year embryo storage fee which was also not covered by insurance. My insurance did not cover the PGD testing. I paid out of pocket for testing the chromosomes of the embryos, which costed $4500 for up to 12 embryos. (I had 5 embryos, still the same $4500)
Describe Eli Rybak's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
Dr Ryback strongly believes in eSET. His motto is "One healthy mother; One healthy baby." He explained that multiple embryo transfer does not guarantee multiple live births. Additionally, multiple embryo's can cause more complications and risks later on. Even twins pose more risks to each other and to the mother. He felt that the healthiest option was a single embryo transferred and I completely agreed with him.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey?
You will not always see Dr. Ryback during the monitoring he is reviewing your numbers and keeping an eye on you! Even after I went with another doctor in the clinic just due to logistics he continued to keep an eye on my progress.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr. Ryback spent time meeting with my husband and I when we we first started this journey. He was prepared for our meeting and discussed our options. Throughout my treatment he would have conference calls with us to review failed cycles and talk about next steps. I truly felt that he cared about me and my dreams to have a family. I even introduced him to my son that he helped create and he picked him and hugged him and was truly so happy for me.
Describe the protocols Eli Rybak used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
We started with the micro dose lupron flare protocol. It resulted in 3 embryos which was my only successful retrieval.

Josephine was a stable in my treatment. She was very responsive and helpful.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
RMA is a big clinic and clearly knows what they are doing. However, you do feel like a number during the routine monitoring. Some of the doctors get to know you and are kind others just examine you and move onto next patient.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
Depended on the day and office. Morristown during the week was OK if you got there early. Basking Ridge on the weekend was horrible. Long waits for ultrasound.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey.
It cost around 20k.

I had to see my OBGYN to address the problem because my nurse would not help me although it was her responsibility.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.

So far I’ve had one cycle and there hasn’t been much to adjust. We did have one setback with a cyst starting this transfer cycle but it was quickly taken care of.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
RMA is a big clinic, so it’s easy to get a little lost. Always ask questions and get to know everyone who you see, for monitoring or procedures. Knowing who everyone is helped me navigate better and be a better advocate for myself. And don’t feel bad ‘pestering’ them for answers, that’s their job.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eli Rybak at RMA of New Jersey.
Procedures were covered except for 20% deductible and meds we opted for out of pocket. About $8K for all that so far .

Dr. Rybak is excellent at answering all questions and explaining things in a clear and understanding way. He also shows true concern for each of his patients. He is absolutely brilliant and not afraid to try new things if something isn't working. He makes you leave his office feeling so cared about and calm.... Dr. Ryback is very special!! After my first devastating and unexpected failed cycle, he called me just to check in to see how I'm holding up. Although most doctors would hopefully do this, Dr. Rybak called me on a Friday afternoon from home 1/2 before the Sabbath was about to begin. He genuinely cares about each one of his patients!

I loved my care team. They were amazing. One thing that really resonated with me was the first time we went to meet with Dr. Rybak, the clinics computer system was down, and Dr. Rybak printed our charts, read through them at lenght, and had spent over and hour making notes BEFORE we arrived. I didn't even have to say, "How would you address our case differently" because that was one of the first things to come out of his mouth.

Her compassion, attention to detail, and the love she has for her job and patients. She helped us through some extremely hard times. She cried with us when we lost our son and celebrated with us when our daughter was born. She wasn't just our nurse, she was like a mother to us.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
It was an efficient, well-oiled machine but there is always a line. Monitoring hours start at 5:45 -- which is very convenient -- but you need to be the first to arrive or wait until after 7 a.m.
