Dr. Gulati was very kind and compassionate. We only saw her in person a handful of times as at RMA there are different doctors each morning for monitoring...IVF with ICSI would be the most successful route...[she] went ahead with the IUI for us knowing our financial limitations. She then found a study that we were able to be a part of to avoid out of pocket costs and we will forever be grateful and thankful.
I don’t think I could have gotten through this process without my nurse. She was amazing, caring, thorough, kind, etc. At RMA you are in daily communication with your nurse over your Doctor and Nicole just made the process easier to understand...has a pretty strong policy of only allowing ESET and will not allow you to transfer multiples...I was able to get monitoring done and then get myself to work in NYC every morning.
How was your experience with Rita Gulati at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr. Gulati was very kind and compassionate. We only saw her in person a handful of times as at RMA there are different doctors each morning for monitoring and we went to their headquarters for our actual procedures. When we saw her during consultation and diagnosis she answered all questions and was calm and supportive while I was hysterically crying in her office. We then spoke to her a couple times via phone during the course of our treatment. I do wish there was some type of check in appointment every month or so just to feel that connection with your actual Doctor vs the nurse but I feel like if I had asked they would have arranged it.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rita Gulati at RMA of New Jersey?
Don’t expect her to be holding your hand through the entire process- you’ll be doing that with your assigned nurse.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rita Gulati at RMA of New Jersey?
I definitely felt like a human while being treated. It’s easy to feel like a number though during monitoring but the phlebotomists were always very kind.
Describe the protocols Rita Gulati used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
We originally were told that IVF with ICSI would be the most successful route for us but unfortunately our insurance did not cover this process without trying IUI a few times beforehand. Dr. Gulati went ahead with the IUI for us knowing our financial limitations. She then found a study that we were able to be a part of to avoid out of pocket costs and we will forever be grateful and thankful.

Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
I had a great experience at RMA West Orange. We were usually one of the first couples to arrive so didn’t often have to wait super long. Obviously there were some mornings where a staff member had called out or something or the sort and things got backed up but there was always room in the waiting room (I had read about some places having lines out the door during monitoring and I was always fearful of this). I was able to get monitoring done and then get myself to work in NYC every morning.
Describe Rita Gulati's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
RMA has a pretty strong policy of only allowing ESET and will not allow you to transfer multiples.

Success w/ Doc Not sure
I like that she [Dr. Rita Gulati] called me personally with results and never rushed me when I was speaking with her in person. However, it felt like it took forever to get in touch with her because they are not always at the clinic and you are seeing a million different doctors during your monitoring. Although she was my actual doctor, I never saw her much during the IVF process.... She was difficult to get in touch with due to schedule. Ex: in office Monday and Tuesday, can't get her by phone other days. Not very involved in IVF process.
Regular daytime appointments [at RMA West Orange] went smoothly and the receptionists are always friendly and nice asking about your day, etc. the issue with this specific site is the waiting room and monitor waiting room is. It big enough. It is packed to the brim most mornings I went and sometimes I had no place to sit down. Also the wait time can be 1 hour at least maybe longer depending on how many people show up and what time you come. I stopped going and went to basking ridge instead where it was 15 minutes for blood work and ultrasound with a big waiting room and more staffing. At the first place they only had 1 doctor to do the ultrasounds.
How was your experience with Rita Gulati at RMA of New Jersey?
Strengths: She is very compassionate and takes time to answer questions when you see her in person. Weaknesses: She was difficult to get in touch with due to schedule. Ex: in office Monday and Tuesday, can't get her by phone other days. Not very involved in IVF process.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rita Gulati at RMA of New Jersey?
You should know that once you begin the process of IVF you don't see your actual doctor very much.

Describe the protocols Rita Gulati used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
For IVF we started with menopur and gonal F in the morning (75 of menopur and 150 of gonal F pen) and at night. On the 3rd morning I had to start the ganarelix one injection and did that as well for the next 5 mornings along with the other meds. After the 3rd morning I went to monitoring the 5th day, 6th, and 8th day of meds. Then I did a trigger shot that night of hcg 5,000units and lupron that twice that day. These meds produced 7 eggs, only 3 were mature and only 1 made it to blast.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: I had Nicole first and merry for IVF)
Well it was hard because as I was starting IVF my nurse left for another clinic. I think that they assign the nurses WAY TOO MANY patients. It's hard to be organized and on the same page when this happens so I don't really blame them at all. I think she did the best she could.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
See previous response about clinic. Do not do monitoring at west orange there are too many patients and not enough staff, go to basking ridge if you can. Also I understand patients want to have their significant other there but then they are not enough seats for actual patients. They need to have a bigger waiting area.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Rita Gulati at RMA of New Jersey.
I did the careshare program and we spent 32,000, 600 for anesthesia, 1,500 for meds. Then copays leading up to treatment $60 each time I went.
Describe Rita Gulati's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
Well we only had 1 to transfer but I like the rationale as the risks for me would have been much higher with a multiple birth (small body frame)
What specific things went wrong at RMA of New Jersey?
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of New Jersey.
If you get an on call nurse it seems like they don't communicate with your Nurse. I even had a covering nurse say I wouldn't needs meds and I ended up needing the meds and had to scramble at the last minute to get them. I also feel like they don't give you enough information about your treatment. Referring to the online classes is not individualized education and each case varies somewhat. I wish they gave you an individualized plan of care and to be honest the amount of money you spend it's not too much to ask especially because you are already an emotional wreck. I needed things spelled out for me in advance not the day of.

Dr. Gulati was up front about what she expected out of treatment. She also reviewed my charts and was armed with knowledge about what we were going through. She didn't ask many questions just reaffirmed what she read and then allowed us to ask her questions. I felt like I had know her forever.... I stimmed for a while to produce great mature eggs. I used bravelle menopur and ganierelix. I stimmed for about 10 days. She wanted to retrieve less eggs so I didn't get hyperstimulated too. She recommended a freeze all and a FET the next month after an endo scratch a few days after retrieval.
It's a huge place [RMA of New Jersey], when you go to the main campus you will fill like a number but hopefully you'll appreciate that. The embryologist know what they are doing and they work really hard to make sure you get a take home baby.... You could go in whenever you wanted for monitoring but they had early morning hours to make it convenient for working patients to come in before work.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rita Gulati at RMA of New Jersey?
She always took time to go over treatment and results with me. She even did a lot of my monitoring.
Describe the protocols Rita Gulati used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
I don't remember my protocol but I remember she said slow and steady wins. I stimmed for a while to produce great mature eggs. I used bravelle menopur and ganierelix. I stimmed for about 10 days. She wanted to retrieve less eggs so I didn't get hyperstimulated too. She recommended a freeze all and a FET the next month after an endo scratch a few days after retrieval.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Jill)
She always kept in touch and didn't make me wait all day for blood results. She was cheerful and always made sure I had crackers and juice for my blood draws. I'm a hard stick so she tried to make me comfortable.

Consult was $300 Everything else totaled about 30k. I had monitoring, retrieval, freezing, PGD, laser acupuncture, frozen transfer, also pregnancy ultrasounds.
Describe Rita Gulati's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
My doctor advised that we could try one embryo but given our history she was more confident with two. She made sure we were okay with the possibility of twins. She said two was her Max because a uterus is a home not a condominium.

Dr.Gulati took her time to do a full assessment and diagnostic work up prior to egg transfer to figure out why I had previous failed embryo transfers. She explained every step of the way in detail, listened to my questions and patiently answered with no judgment or reservation while still stating objective...is very kind compassionate and forthcoming with her patients.
