Dr. Talebian has been wonderful. She answers your emails promptly and is very vested in the success of your treatment....Dr. Talebian is an incredible doctor. I loved how she also suggested alternative medicine like acupuncture and changing my diet. Dr. Talebian is extremely thorough and kind. I feel like I am in the absolute best hands with her....The protocol was Antagonist. I was on Lupron, Menopur and Gonal-F. Towards the end my Gonal-F
The office [CCRM NY] is clean, beautiful and run very efficiently. I really appreciated that they were open 7 days a week for monitoring. The nurses during the egg retrieval were especially outstanding but they were also wonderful during the many blood tests and monitoring appointments. I absolutely love working with CCRM.... Julie and the entire nursing staff are amazing. They are so kind and welcoming and very efficient.

Dr. Talebian is very attentive, kind, smart, patient and honest....Dr. Talebian showed a willingness to spend as much time with me and my partner as we needed in order to answer every question and address every anxiety. She is both honest and kind. Over the course of my interactions with her I have come to trust her. She has shown a respect for our individual path to fertility treatment and has shown deference to our values and our thought process, even though I’m certain she’s had these conversations a million times.
The clinic [CCRM] is beautiful and well organized and calm. But it is the quality and experience of the doctors and the lab are what distinguish the clinic from the others. The strategies and methodologies are state of the art. The cost is very high as the clinic does not take insurance and the overall cost is higher in any case...Infertility diagnosis: $3000 IVF round: $21000 Medications: $7000...Dr. Talebian showed a willingness to spend as much time with me and my partner as we needed in order to answer every question and address every anxiety

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Talebian is very reassuring, despite my many setbacks, that eventually I will get pregnant. I was probably okay with going on to my 7th IUI, when she encouraged me to move onto IVF... I appreciate a doctor that is willing to give me a nudge.
I am having problems with the long waiting time for appointments... The only issue that I had with the nursing staff is they forgot about me when i was dropping off a sperm sample. I waited for 45 mins, freaking out about all the time that was passing...
How was your experience with Sheeva Talebian at RMA of New York?
Dr. Talebian is very reassuring, despite my many setbacks, that eventually I will get pregnant. I was probably okay with going on to my 7th IUI, when she encouraged me to move onto IVF. I believe that she is doing the right thing by helping me move on from treatments that are not working. I appreciate a doctor that is willing to give me a nudge.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sheeva Talebian at RMA of New York?
Definitely take advantage of your time with her. Prep any questions before hand.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sheeva Talebian at RMA of New York?
The moment I felt that she treated me like a human was when on my 4th IUI. Right after she completed the insemination she held up both hands, crossed both sets of fingers, and said "I'm rooting for you". It made her feel more like a friend and a cheerleader, rather than just a doctor.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at RMA of New York.
The woman that takes my blood is very sweet. The only issue that I had with the nursing staff is they forgot about me when i was dropping off a sperm sample. I waited for 45 mins, freaking out about all the time that was passing, but no one spoke to me until I made a big deal with the front desk.

I first saw Dr. Sheeva Talebian in 2008 when she was in Kirkland, WA. She was very professional, but also warm and welcoming... Never made me feel that I should give up, but gave me the information right up front.
They [the nurses] were always friendly and knew that I liked to joke, so they worked with my humor.
How was your experience with Sheeva Talebian at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
I first saw Dr. Sheeva Talebian in 2008 when she was in Kirkland, WA. She was very professional, but also warm and welcoming. Since I was a military officer at the time, I also preferred someone who wasn't going to string me along and was more to the point. She met all of my expectations and my husband and I truly enjoyed working with her! After failed rounds of clomid, along with 1 IUI, we moved onto IVF. The first round also didn't work and Dr. Talebian informed me that my egg quality was low and that we would give it one more try with IVF but then she recommended we move onto donor eggs. Luckily the second round worked and our son was born in 2009.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sheeva Talebian at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Just be up front with Dr. Talebian, she will work with you and I believe she appreciates you being just as up front with her. She never made me feel like a statistic, always a woman trying to have a baby.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sheeva Talebian at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
She was always extremely helpful and friendly. Never made me feel that I should give up, but gave me the information right up front. I was extremely pleased with Dr. Talebian.

Dr Talebian always responded to our questions - via email, over the phone, in person. When we emailed her with any concerns, she responded quickly even when she was on vacation or if it was on a weekend. She is clear in explaining our situation, the results of each cycle, the changes to protocol and why. When we had to find another clinic for surrogacy, Dr Talebian helped us through the entire process, even through the multiple setbacks. She is amazing and I would not be seeking care from another doctor if paid surrogacy is legal in NY.
CCRM NY is super organized and operates like a boutique - high touch service, quick response, short wait times. I can speak with a person every time I call. My emails to my nurse or anyone at the clinic is responded to the same day (business days). The clinic itself is pleasant, never crowded. I never feel like I'm just a number when I interact with the clinic or its staff...Dr Talebian always called after each unsuccessful pregnancy. She always offered to discuss next option and words of encouragement. She really cared about us.
