She [Dr. Safier] explained our course of treatment well. As a nurse I know and understand the medical aspect. She took the time to thoroughly make sure my husband understood what was going on too.... she has answered every concern and weighed every option with us. She made it clear that she wants us to get pregnant just as much as we want it. Not just another doctor pushing pills and treatments “hoping” for the best.
The nurses [Island Fertility] are amazing. The medical assistants are ok.... Insurance coverage was explained and then copays were not thoroughly explained I suppose. I was told one fee for testing and another for seeing the dr. So days I didn’t see the dr and only had labs drawn I was paying both fees. In perspective it’s a lot less than someone without great coverage. Just unclear.

How was your experience with Lauren Safier at Island Fertility?
She explained our course of treatment well. As a nurse I know and understand the medical aspect. She took the time to thoroughly make sure my husband understood what was going on too. With a hiccup regarding testing that requires surgery now, even though I was ready to do IUI this month, she has answered every concern and weighed every option with us. She made it clear that she wants us to get pregnant just as much as we want it. Not just another doctor pushing pills and treatments “hoping” for the best.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses are amazing. The medical assistants are ok. There’s one that I can’t stand. She doesn’t listen and always ends up sticking me over and over for labs until she finally gets someone else after hurting me. I know I’m tough and I’ve been drawing blood for over 10 years. I’m not a wimp or anything like that. It’s like she forgets there’s a human on the other side of the needle and not just a specimen.

Office otherwise is very nice, optimistic, and supportive.
