I have known Dr. Buyuk for about a year on and off. Today I had a procedure with Anesthesia. I was very very scared as I had a bad experience many years ago Where in I awoke mid-surgery and felt everything with a different Doctor for different medical issues. He held my hand and treated me like family until I fell asleep. Since the day we met he has been very verbal and patient with all of my questions, even when repeating them.
Dr Buyuk is the strength. The nurses [Montefiore Medical Center] have been good. They should reestablish the ivf classes. That part can be complicated. Maybe sell a dvd class. I have nothing much else to say so i will just say that I am in aww of the professionalism and kindness of my Doctor.... I trust him with my life and hopefully with helping me to conceive my first child at 39.... Hes the best I could have ever imagined and I used to work in obgyn.

I can't express How wonderful a Human being he is and Surgeon. He also didn't have to go the possible route of other surgeries while under and we were able to do the minimal procedure required. I trust him with my life and hopefully with helping me to conceive my first child at 39. Thanks, Doc! You really are great

From the start of my journey Dr. Buyuk was very informative and caring. He truly cares about his patients and makes them feel very comfortable. He respones to emails very quickly.... I had a dye test done to make sure my ovaries weren't blocked. My husbands sperm count was checked. I don't remember how much injections I had. The first cycle I did in 2013 was a successful pregnancy, the second cycle in 2017 I had to stop because of polyps, 3rd cycle in june of 2017 ended up negative.
All of the staff [at Montefiore] are very nice and after awhile of going they all began to know me by name. One of the secretaries always wished me good luck. The billing department goes over what your insurance does and doesn't cover. The one thing I don't like is that if you're not caught up on your bill they will not let you finish your cycle. We're stressed enough you'd think they'd let you finish and than worry about payments.

Very caring and understanding to your needs as a patient , he's [Dr. Buyuk] also very detailed in explaining whatever issues you have to you.
My care team [at Montefiore] got to know me on an individual basis and they were all concerned about my case and the outcome. They always assured me each time I went to keep my hopes up high because I would definitely achieve a pregnancy sooner than I expect.
