Dr. Zapantis is kind and knowledgable in his profession. However, he is not always present for office visits and often you are seen by his NP. Something I would have liked to see more of from Dr. Zapantis, however is more explanation of his recommendations going forward after failed treatment. I had to call to make an appt to discuss the next step and they were surprised when I asked to speak to the doctor about my options instead of just jumping to the next IUI cycle. I believe the nature of this work must be difficult however, and he does show compassion and does his best to present you with the facts. He also frequently cites medical literature however still presenting it in laymans terms. He has good bedside manner and has always been kind.

How was your experience with Gregory Zapantis at New York Reproductive Wellness?
Dr. Zapantis is kind and knowledgable in his profession. However, he is not always present for office visits and often you are seen by his NP. This is not a bad thing by any means, just thought I would mention it so you would know what to expect. His NP (who's name i will leave out since review is about Dr. Zapantis, however I believe deserves recognition) was always great with performing ultrasounds, guiding me through the entire process and even doing my first IUI. Dr. Zapantis is present mostly for the initial consultation and then 1-2 visits before the HCG injection. He did perform the 2nd IUI, and have to say it actually hurt a little more than his NP lol..Nothing to really mention or complain about though, really only a little cramping. I'm not sure if this holds true for IVF though since I only did 2 IUIs. Unfortunately both IUIs resulted in negative pregnancies but the process was made a little smoother with the NP, MA and office staff's help. Something I would have liked to see more of from Dr. Zapantis, however is more explanation of his recommendations going forward after failed treatment. I had to call to make an appt to discuss the next step and they were surprised when I asked to speak to the doctor about my options instead of just jumping to the next IUI cycle.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Gregory Zapantis at New York Reproductive Wellness?
Decide whether you want genetic testing done before you go in to the office. I have been to 2 different RE's who have both recommended it, so I'm sure Dr. Zapantis is not alone in ordering it as part of the initial workup. However even after explaining my reasons for wanting to defer the testing (mostly due to cost and there not being any genetic diseases in the family etc) he convinced me to do it and I'm stuck with a tremendous lab bill. Remember it is your choice. Although I'm sure genetic testing can aid in some people's decision process, it does not tell you anything about why you are infertile or your chances of a sucessful pregnancy. To think, how many people get genetic testing done who concieve naturally? Also, they offer you genetic testing once you are pregnant so you can be informed of any issues at that time.

95% of my appointment Dr. Zapantis was the person I saw. When my transfer failed he called himself to discuss our next steps and was very sincere...is very knowledgeable and listens to your concerns. He takes his time with appointments and explains every thing so you can understand what is going on. You never feel like a number. I didnt even need to make a follow up appointment to speak with him, as he called as soon as he had my results.
