Dr. Molinaro always took the time to speak to my husband and I 1:1, answering all of our many questions and calming our anxieties about our treatment plans and overall process. He was always compassionate, and took the time to directly call us when we had bumps along the road. He was incredibly compassionate, kind, and direct about expectations while instilling a positive outlook and hope along our entire journey...
Sometimes, morning monitoring hours [at RMA of New Jersey] can get busy depending on the day and location...The monitoring doctors, nurses, phlebotomists, receptionists, all are rockstars at moving patients through to bloodwork and ultrasound as quickly as possible...kind, always responded to questions and concerns, and competent. Literally every single nurse who I spoke to at RMA (which were a lot of them as sometimes you’ll speak to covering nurses when your assigned nurse is out on a given day) we’re phenomenal...
How was your experience with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr. Molinaro is our angel on this earth! Without him, my husband and I would not be expecting our first baby. After so many heartbreaking years of painfully struggling to conceive, he helped us to finally become pregnant. We still have a long journey to go to meet our baby, but without Dr. Molinaro, we would not be where we are today. He is kind, honest, sincere, funny, incredibly competent, and a wonderful listener. He kept hope alive for my husband and I during what felt like a never-ending journey, responded to us when we needed to chat, and always adjusted our treatment plan to fit our needs. I adamantly recommend Dr. Molinaro to absolutely anyone who is struggling to grow their family. You can’t get any better than him!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. He is a great listener and really cares about your comfort in moving forward to next steps along the way. He eases fears while remaining honest.

Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
We did 2 medicated cycles with trying naturally, 6 medicated IUI cycles, and 2 IVF cycles. Dr. Molinaro really let us decide what we were comfortable with at the time, while still providing his medical opinion each and every step of the way. He adjusted our 2nd IVF cycle which slightly modified the medications and length of time, giving us a much shorter cycle of injections and produced a significantly improved egg retrieval and embryo count. We really trusted him, and we are so glad that we did!
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Alana (and then Lauren))
Our first nurse at RMA was Alana who was fantastic. She was so compassionate, responsive, and competent. We were so sad when she moved on to a different role, but we were relieved to be assigned to Lauren who made us feel like we were in wonderful hands. Same as Alana, Lauren was kind, always responded to questions and concerns, and competent. Literally every single nurse who I spoke to at RMA (which were a lot of them as sometimes you’ll speak to covering nurses when your assigned nurse is out on a given day) we’re phenomenal. Cannot say enough amazing things about the entire nursing staff at RMA. They are lifelines during what can be a daunting process.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
I can’t say enough about how wonderful RMA is. You are at their offices so frequently during monitoring that these people truly become family, and RMA very quickly feels like a home away from home. Every single person is warm, helpful, gentle, and competent. RMA is a breath of fresh air during a tremendously challenging time of dealing with the unknown and managing through anxieties about family planning.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
Sometimes, morning monitoring hours can get busy depending on the day and location. I really didn’t mind because it was a constant reminder for me that I was not alone in this process, and that every patient was there for similar reasons as me. The monitoring doctors, nurses, phlebotomists, receptionists, all are rockstars at moving patients through to bloodwork and ultrasound as quickly as possible. I was going during the height of the COVID pandemic when certain locations were closed and they worked so hard to make the experience the best it could be for all patients. Also, monitoring hours are early, so it made it much less of a burden for me as I did not have to adjust my work day to constantly take time off of work which was so helpful.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey.
Most of our treatments were covered by insurance.
Describe Thomas Molinaro's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
Dr. Molinaro recommended that we do a frozen single embryo transfer to improve our likelihood of success. His medical guidance was absolutely critical for our success.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
[Dr. Molinaro] is delicate but direct. He is hopeful but realistic. I was confident and informed for all of my tries. And when something didn’t work he contacted me and we changed course. He also listened to my concerns and made sure to adjust my treatment accordingly...2nd egg retrieval did a new protocol of Lupron, Follistim, and hCG. That resulted in 10 eggs and 5 embryos. I’m currently doing an unmedicated transfer cycle due to my history of migraines.
I always knew [our RMA of NJ nurse] was out and she had back up plans. I did talk to a lot of on call nurses and they were all fantastic...Everyone is polite but it’s busy and you may need to travel to get to offices. They are the best but wait times can be long unless you arrive very early to morning monitoring. With the number of people coming and going you do feel a bit like a number during morning sessions and procedures but only based on the number of patients

Be honest and ask questions. He is there to help and inform.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
I was always spoken to respectfully. And any bad or disappointing news Dr. Molinaro reached out personally.
Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
First IUI- injections Follistim, resulted in live birth. Three years later 2 IUIs with Follistim did not get pregnant First egg retrieval did Follistim and Menapur did not do well on this protocol. Resulted in 3 eggs total and only 1 embryo. Had 9 follicles so it was disappointing. 2nd egg retrieval did a new protocol of Lupron, Follistim, and hCG. That resulted in 10 eggs and 5 embryos. I’m currently doing an unmedicated transfer cycle due to my history of migraines.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Sara)
All of my cycles coincided with holidays, starting with IUI #1 around Thanksgiving and extending all the way to St Patrick’s Day! As a result my nurse was frequently out of the office when I needed things. I always knew she was out and she had back up plans. I did talk to a lot of on call nurses and they were all fantastic.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
They are a large operation. Everyone is polite but it’s busy and you may need to travel to get to offices. They are the best but wait times can be long unless you arrive very early to morning monitoring. With the number of people coming and going you do feel a bit like a number during morning sessions and procedures but only based on the number of patients. Doctors and staff are all friendly.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
If you got there early you had to wait in line before they open. However it was very organized and most times I was in and out in 30 minutes. Saturdays were the best days to go and Fridays were the worst!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey.
I have insurance so most was covered. I only had to pay for no covered expenses like freezing, biopsy, and testing. Through insurance I also had copays and medicine costs.
What specific things went wrong at RMA of New Jersey?
  • Failed to call with results
Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of New Jersey.
Nothing wrong, but I did have to ask about test results of my embryo because my nurse was out of office and no one shared the info. It was a small thing but I was waiting a long time and if I didn’t ask for results might have still been waiting!

I really like Dr Molinaro. I do wish we would have done some investigating of a good uterine environment before this last transfer. I do feel that Dr M has my best interests in mind and would like to do his best to help me succeed...I felt that the Dr was honest with me but also felt like I had a chance
[RMA of New Jersey] Strengths- great doctors. Well oiled machine. Great lab. Very organized. Weaknesses- that they don’t believe so much in endometriosis affecting fertility or other immune issues. I had endo removed by a prior Dr so I felt ok moving forward...Happy with my nurse. She’s been available and I felt like she was invested.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
Be open and honest. Be prepared to advocate for yourself. But that’s with anyone, not specifically for him. I would say he’s definitely more open to ideas. I think it’s also different if he’s your first Dr or your third.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
I felt that the Dr was honest with me but also felt like I had a chance
Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
We did a microdose Lupron protocol. We did an estrace prime prior to stims. We decided not to use menopur as sometimes it is contraindicated for older patients like me. Day 2 started 10 units microdose Lupron 2x a day. Day 3 added 450 follistim. We also used low dose hcg. Started at 10 went up to 50 units. We got 14 eggs, 8 mature, 6 fertilized, 2 day 6 embryos. One was PGT normal.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
Pretty well-oiled. I never felt like I waited a crazy amount of time. Some days were worse than others of course.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey.
I have had insurance coverage up until now (I have used all) so costs were manageable. The only thing my insurance did not cover was PGT testing
Describe Thomas Molinaro's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
No comments. I understand the rationale to only transfer one tested embryo. My previous IVF doctor transferred multiple untested only.

He [Dr. Molinaro] emailed me after our consult and at other points during treatment and called me to discuss our options once my eggs were stimulated and we could see I still repeated what I had done previously and only had about 3 large follicles. He really looked at our situation and gave us his honest opinion and statistics as to why he thought that way....He advised us that our money might be better spent with donor eggs, but we wanted to try one cycle with my own eggs with him. And he said he was willing to help us do that, but we didn’t have very high odds.
Advocate for yourself with billing and your nurse [RMA of NJ]. I feel like things could have been missed if I didn’t speak up to my nurse....There were times I left messages or sent emails and didn’t hear back until I followed up again a day or 2 later with another form of communication, usually the opposite of what I had last done, email or phone call. Then I would finally hear back. These were usually questions that were not immediately urgent like a medication question for that day, but I still was surprised at times when I didn’t hear back in 24 hours.
How was your experience with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr. Molinaro came highly recommended from several women I knew that had gone to him and had success. However all of them had insurance coverage. He had much more compassion and better bedside manner than the doctor I saw prior to him, but he was almost twice the cost for me without insurance. He did explain, in a way he can’t work miracles and can only work with what I bring him and given the 3 cycles I had at dr before him being a low responder, he couldn’t guarantee anything. He advised us that our money might be better spent with donor eggs, but we wanted to try one cycle with my own eggs with him. And he said he was willing to help us do that, but we didn’t have very high odds. About 15% chance. Verses 60% chance with donor eggs.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
They are quick to recommend donor eggs. I think it is because they want to help you have success, but it’s then very daunting to look into the egg donor process. So much more complicated than IVF with your own eggs. Ask him any questions you have. He will give you a compassionate and honest answer.

Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
For my case where I had been unexplained infertility, but now DOR. (Low AMH and high FSH) Primed with estrace pill at end of my natural cycle leading up to IVF cycle. Gonal F and lupron and low dose HSG stims. Trigger shot Novarel.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Amy)
There were times I left messages or sent emails and didn’t hear back until I followed up again a day or 2 later with another form of communication, usually the opposite of what I had last done, email or phone call. Then I would finally hear back. These were usually questions that were not immediately urgent like a medication question for that day, but I still was surprised at times when I didn’t hear back in 24 hours. I gave them the benefit of doubt. I’m not the type a person who calls repeatedly and one day if it’s not an emergency. As my cycle progressed I did feel a little more at ease with her. They were quick to get things in order so that I could pay before starting a cycle or moving to the next part. But then once I didn’t make it to transfer and I had questions about what we could do next and deciding if we would do donor egg or what we would do I feel like it went back again to pretty irresponsive and days in between my emails and questions.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
Advocate for yourself with billing and your nurse. I feel like things could have been missed if I didn’t speak up to my nurse. Doctors are very thorough and perform the ultrasounds every morning bright and early, I switched between the Freehold and Eatontown office so that I could have Dr. Molinaro as many mornings as possible. About twice I had other doctors. So that was comforting to have my doctor looking at my ultrasound and not just a technician to get to ask him little questions and a feel for things each day and then wait on bloodwork for final instructions later that day from nurse.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
6am to 8/8:30 I believe. I stuck to earlier times (6-7) so I could get home before my husband left for work and to get my child ready for school. The waiting room in Eatontown was often very full but it did move pretty quickly; Freehold there was hardly ever a wait for ultrasound or bloodwork.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey.
$15,300 for retrieval ICSI and genetic testing, for their agreement with Aetna which does not cover IVF. Transfer would have been $4,500 more. My medications were covered, minimal copay.
Describe Thomas Molinaro's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
They strongly encourage genetic testing and single embryo transfer. Of our three embryos all fertilized and 2 made it to day six blastocyst and then were sent to testing; both were found to be abnormal. So we never moved onto transfer.
What specific things went wrong at RMA of New Jersey?
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of New Jersey.
I didn’t have a medication that I needed at the start of my cycle, so I had to make a same day trip to pharmacy 1 hour away.

We first went to our consult with Dr. Thomas Molinaro and he wanted to know everything in our past, he explained EVERYTHING, and made me feel so much more comfortable with the treatments we were about to undergo.... He is very compassionate, well educated, and has great bed side manner. He made me feel so comfortable with everything and gave me a sense of confidence that everything was going to work out well. He explained everything to great extent and made sure I understood each process.

It has been a long road so far and for the first time I feel like things are going somewhere. Insurance is covering only $1,000 and we have every opportunity to shop around for cheaper treatment but as comfortable he made us feel I would find a way just to continue to see him. I would recommend him to anyone I know who is struggling with fertility!
Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
I have been on letrozole for 3 cycles with my OBGYN and he wants me to do one or two with him so he can monitor me. He explained the difference with IUI/injections and IVF with PCOS.

Dr Molinaro is straightforward but kind. He isn't pushy in his recommendations and goes through all your options so you feel like you actually have a say in the process.... Ask all your questions - Dr. Molinaro knows it all and don't be afraid to ask about alternative options and what he's seen be successful/unsuccessful. He's looking at understanding the full picture here of your story so that you can have a good outlook.
This [RMA of NJ] is a well-oiled machine. Everything is really efficient from the nursing team, to the financial coordinator to the staff on the day of your egg retrieval/transfer. You can tell that they work really hard at understanding the process so they can get people through and do things right. I'd love to have some sort of patient portal to view all my bloodwork but can see where that make some patients crazy. I love that I get a call from my nurse within 3-4 hours of doing bloodwork and know exactly what's next for my protocol.
How was your experience with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
I love that when I go to see Dr. Molinaro that he tells me the next steps right there- I don't feel like I have to wait for him to make a decision. We've had a few setbacks but he's called to check-in and offer support every time and I can ask him about different options to try and trust that he knows exactly what to do to make sure that we get over the finish line. I've already recommended him to two friends.

Dr Molinaro is straightforward but kind. He isn't pushy in his recommendations and goes through all your options so you feel like you actually have a say in the process. His office is very friendly and I'm always able to get a hold of someone no matter what. That's a huge differentiator here. Knowing that my nursing team understands what I need during this process too.
Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
I was on an agonist protocol with low dose HCG and Follistim. 10 units of low dose HCG and 275 of Follistim. I triggered with Lupron. I know that after egg retrieval, they did some sort of calcium addition to help with egg fertilization which helped a lot. We did a freeze-all cycle and had PGS testing done which resulted in 7 normal blastocysts. First transfer cycle- we transferred one embryo which resulted in an early miscarriage.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Amy)
Amy is great. She's quick to respond to all my questions and is through in explaining the process for me. The rest of the nurses at the clinic are fantastic too!

Most days I could get in and out in 20 minutes. I've waited as long as 45 minutes to get done, however, once you know those busy times, you can maneuver your schedule a bit to adjust. It never derailed my morning.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey.
PGS testing, Embyro storage fees. All the rest was charged and covered by insurance

after poor results at another clinic. Dr. Molinaro put me on a stimulation protocol that worked much better. After two stimulation cycles and a frozen transfer I got pregnant and delivered a healthy baby...He is very approachable and will take the time to discuss options and answer questions...Estrogen priming protocol for stimulation which worked very well. He also put me on supplements to help with egg quality...He recommended single embryo transfer - which I agree with 100%.
Even though RMANJ is a large group and I mostly went to Basking Ridge for monitoring, I never felt like a number. During the IVF process I got to interact with different Doctors, nurses and staff. Everybody was very nice and respectful...Lauren [nurse] was excellent. She responded to my questions quickly, followed up in a timely manner and always provided clear instructions...it would never take long. It was run very efficiently and the hours were very convenient.
How was your experience with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr. Molinaro had a great bedside manner and positive attitude. IVF is a difficult journey and he made it all much easier. He was also very realistic - yet very tactful when setting expectations. He answered all my questions promptly and was great at explaining the more "technical" aspects of the treatment in a way I could easily understand.

Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
After having experienced treatment at two of the top fertility clinics on my home state, I could tell that the quality of care of RMANJ was much better. They are a large practice but I never felt like a number. They were very well organized and wait times for monitoring appointments were rarely long. As part of a treatment cycle I interacted with different doctors/nurses and it all seemed very well coordinated. In my case the rate of embryos making it to day 5 was also much better than at other clinics - a testament to the quality of the lab and lab staff. They are one of the top fertility research centers in the world and it shows on their success rates.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Out of all the doctors I've worked with at four different clinics Dr. Molinaro is the only one that provided his direct email address and was reachable by phone without having to go through many people. When things were time sensitive, Dr. Molinaro always replied to emails promptly (usually within the same day) or called back on the same day.... It's clear to me that he really wants his patients to feel both physically and emotionally healthy.
Monitoring appointments were very organized and well run and wait times were much shorter than I experienced at other clinics. During our treatment cycles we went to many RMA locations for monitoring and experienced this same level of efficiency.... RMA-NJ's greatest strength is that they are successful. At the end of the day this should be the number one factor in choosing a fertility clinic. But as you peel back the onion you realize that they are successful because they are uniquely strong in so many areas.
How was your experience with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
My experience with RMA and Dr. Molinaro was exactly what I was looking for after settling for less at other clinics and with other doctors. One thing that immediately stood out to me was that he was reachable. He gave us his direct email address, which may seem like a small thing but for us this was very different than what we experienced at other clinics. Dr. Molinaro has a lot of confidence in his clinic and in their protocols but he was always patient with answering my questions and listening to my concerns. I am someone who wants to understand everything that's going (so that I can then let go and trust the process) so it was helpful that he was willing to answer questions and talk through things. It's clear to me that he really wants his patients to feel both physically and emotionally healthy.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
Trust him but ask questions. He'll patiently answer them and put you at ease.

Out of all the doctors I've worked with at four different clinics Dr. Molinaro is the only one that provided his direct email address and was reachable by phone without having to go through many people. When things were time sensitive, Dr. Molinaro always replied to emails promptly (usually within the same day) or called back on the same day. I was able to put my trust in Dr. Molinaro which was a relief after the experiences I had with doctors at other clinics.
Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
We did an Antagonist protocol with estrogen priming which included Estrace for 10 days (during the luteal phase) leading up to CD1. Low dose HCG starting on CD1, Gonal F (or Follistim) starting on CD3, Ganirelix (or Cetrotide) starting on CD8, Omnitrope (HGH) for last few days before retrieval. - The rational for estrogen priming with Estrace was to facilitate a more gradual and coordinated growth of follicles. - The low dose-HCG is a much less expensive alternative to Menopur. We were given the option of Menopur or low dose HCG and we picked low dose HCG because of the cost (and had better results). - The Gonal F (or Follistim) was used to stimulate the follicles to grow - The Ganirelix (or Cetrotide) was used to prevent ovulation while stimulating. - The Omnitrope (HGH) was an add-on (optional) which we added to improve egg quality. The jury is still out on it but we had success in the two cycles where we used it (and failure in the 2 cycles where we didn't) so I think it's worth trying. With this protocol we had more eggs retrieved, more fertilized eggs, more blasts, and more PGS/CCS euploid embryos.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Beth)
Beth is highly competent, organized, knowledgeable, and responsive. When we met with her at the consultation she provided her direct email address and direct phone number so I knew I could always reach her if I need to. She has been great at answering our questions and walking us through the process and guiding us on what to expect every step of the way. She has been supportive of us through the ups and downs, the worries, the hopes and the fears. When Beth is not available or out of the office the other nurses have also been responsive and communicative. RMA-NJ is a well oiled machine and you never feel like you're treatment is slipping through the cracks. Everyone on the team knows what's going on.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
RMA-NJ's greatest strength is that they are successful. At the end of the day this should be the number one factor in choosing a fertility clinic. But as you peel back the onion you realize that they are successful because they are uniquely strong in so many areas. Some strengths: - Excellent at communication (via phone and email) - Centralized records that the medical team can access so that information is shared - Innovative: They conduct research and trials so they are always pushing for innovation and new approaches, - Convenient: They have a lot of locations in NJ and you can monitor at any of them - Flexible: This is so important if you are out of state, like we were. They will work with you and make the process seamless - Excellent doctors - Competent, knowledgeable, and organized nurses - CCS/PGS lab in house (they donated the CCS lab that they developed to a non-profit and it's located at their headquarters) - Highly skilled embryologists Minor weaknesses: - I don't love their email system but this is a problem with many clinics. It worked out ok for us though. - There isn't an online portal to get results information and I like to have all the information during my cycles so that I can follow along. My nurses were happy to provide this to me though. I wouldn't want to trade interaction with my doctors and nurses for a portal, though.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
Monitoring at RMA is quite early in the morning (6-7:30 am) which was sometimes hard for us because we were coming from out of state and typically arriving very late at night the night before. But, early mornings are an integral and expected part of the IVF process so we adapted. Monitoring appointments were very organized and well run and wait times were much shorter than I experienced at other clinics. During our treatment cycles we went to many RMA locations for monitoring and experienced this same level of efficiency.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
We began treatment with Dr. Molinaro after several failed rounds of IUIs and IVF with another doctor. We were looking for someone who was going to be aggressive with our treatment and willing to take risks which Dr. Molinaro was. We really felt like he tailored our treatment plan to fit us and our needs. Dr. Molinaro pays attention to detail, is up-to-date on the latest research and procedures and takes each treatment step-by-step so as not to overwhelm you.
It [RMA of NJ] is a large operation and unfortunately this means that you don't see your doctor often. Coming from a smaller RE practice, this took some getting used to. I definitely had moments where the large scale practice was glaringly obvious. For example during monitoring I had one doctor, who hadn't reviewed my case or infertility history, see my ultrasound and comment that I was responding really well to stims and should be able to get my "whole family in the freezer."

We did not see him often during treatment, but he is just a phone call away.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr. Molinaro takes the time to answer all of our questions. He calls to check up on us and in general his bedside manner is such that we feel he truly cares about us and is deeply committed to getting us to our goal.
Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
My treatment included gonal f and low dose hcg. It resulted in a successful egg collection with a large number of eggs retrieved. Unfortunately after our retrieval, we did not get the outcome we were hoping for, but meds were adjusted for the next round.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey.
Our nurse is compassionate, organized and caring. She has been a good support during this time. While out of cycle I sometimes struggled getting a hold of her as her automatic out-of-office reply seems to begin in early afternoon. However, I don't remember this being an issue while in cycle; she was easy to get in touch with and correspondence was reciprocated quickly.

For example during monitoring I had one doctor, who hadn't reviewed my case or infertility history, see my ultrasound and comment that I was responding really well to stims and should be able to get my "whole family in the freezer." I knew this would not be the case based on my egg quality issue and previous IVF rounds, but she obviously did not know my history or situation. If monitoring or embryo updates fell on a weekend, usually a nurse or doctor you did not know would call you with the news, and not the nurse or doctor you are most comfortable with. Situations like this sometimes made monitoring feel impersonal, although all the doctors and nurses I came into contact with were lovely. Despite the size of the practice, I usually did not wait long for monitoring and always felt like I could reach out to my nurse or doctor if I needed personal attention.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
While it was definitely efficient, it did feel like an assembly line. However, aside from one long wait, I never waited more than 30 minutes for monitoring.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey.
Everything was paid for out of pocket. With meds, IVF, PGS, we spent about $25,000 for one round. They do not offer IVF packages for multiple rounds for those paying out of pocket, or at least none were offered to us at the time.
What specific things went wrong at RMA of New Jersey?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Failed to order appropriate test
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of New Jersey.
Minor issues occurred such as the wrong tests codes on outside lab slips, failure to call prescriptions and once a bizarre check-in situation where the receptionist thought I was someone else (despite the hand print ID technology) all the way through check-in until she tried to charge me a copay, which I don't pay for monitoring, and then we realized what happened.

He [Dr. Molinaro] is easily accessible for questions by phone, via email, and to meet when necessary. Furthermore, he takes ownership over his prescribed treatment and is willing to make adjustments when things don’t work as expected...We inquired about transferring multiple embryos and he was not in favor. He informed us of the increased chance of the eggs splitting in such a scenario.
In terms of strengths [at RMA of New Jersey], all of the doctors who take part in monitoring are capable and communicative and seem familiar with our case. They are efficient I handling the number of cases that come in during morning hours...Sue [nurse] has been wonderful throughout this process. She is always timely in her communications, thorough in her instructions, and sensitive to the process. I have not experienced any negatives under her care.
How was your experience with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
As mentioned previously, his bedside manner and approachability are two of Dr. Molinaro’s strengths. He is easily accessible for questions by phone, via email, and to meet when necessary. Furthermore, he takes ownership over his prescribed treatment and is willing to make adjustments when things don’t work as expected. The only setback is that we have not been pregnant just yet. He remains positive that we will be successful, so I’m optimistic to continue treatment and look forward to giving it another shot with my next transfer.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
Request that he be the doctor doing the embryo transfer if you get to that point.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr. Molinaro’s bedside manner is better than any doctor I have ever seen. He is sensitive to the difficulties of treating infertility, while at the same time honest and open about treatment and expectations. He has personally called on a number of occasions to deliver results and has made himself available to meet whenever we request a meeting.
Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
Dr. Molinar’s overall strategy was probably different than most others experience given I am going through CO-IVF and acting as the gestational carrier for my wife’s eggs. First we had to go through six rounds of IUI to prove infertility. The first three we did without medications and the second three with injections. After six failed IUI attempts with no positive results, my wife was diagnosed infertile which allowed us to advance to IVF. Because her health (back issues) deteriorated over the course of treatment, we decided to make me the carrier. We were able to retrieve 14 eggs from her first retrieval, of which 11 were mature, 9 fertilized, and 3 made it to day 5 blastocyst stage. We tested those three and ended up with 2 grade A embryos. My first transfer did not result in a pregnancy. I was taking 1 ml of progesterone shots nightly leading up to and after the transfer and estrace pills 2 times daily before and after the transfer. My second attempt following the same protocol with the exception of estrace 3 times daily after the transfer resulted in a low beta result which climbed for a few days only to fall about a week later. At first we thought that I was having an ectopic pregnancy, but it was later thought that it had either been an early miscarriage or a chemical pregnancy. We are about to do another retrieval round with my wife as we are out of embryos.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Susan Welgos)
Sue has been wonderful throughout this process. She is always timely in her communications, thorough in her instructions, and sensitive to the process. I have not experienced any negatives under her care.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
In terms of strengths, all of the doctors who take part in monitoring are capable and communicative and seem familiar with our case. They are efficient I handling the number of cases that come in during morning hours. Also, they advertise top of the industry results in terms of success of live birth rates.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
A line frequently develops at the very opening of monitoring hours, but RMA is efficient at getting through this slight back up. If you show up even 20 min shred after hours begin, there may be 1-3 people ahead of you. I have never waited longer than 20 minutes to be seen though even at the busiest hours.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey.
We had to pay for each vial of sperm though that is not associated with the clinic at all. To date we have spent nearly $10,000 to that end. Because my wife and I have good insurance, RMA collected copays from us until our deductible was reached and then they collected nothing from us when monitoring. Because we ran out of money for fertility treatments under my wife’s insurance we were responsible for paying approximately $9000 for the remaining cost of our first retrieval which included ICSI and the testing of embryos. We decided to pay the cash rate for meds so to not take even more money out of that bucket; this cost us approximately $3500. We are still waiting to see how much my transfers will cost us as it’s possible her insurance will cover some of those expenses. If not each transfer will cost us about $4500.

Dr Molinaro always took time to answer questions I had, respond to emails I sent, and proactively reach out to see how I was doing throughout my cycles. I even went for monitoring at another office where he was covering for the day, and he went out of his way to find me to see how I was doing. His positive attitude and honesty was always reassuring.... I felt he was always accessible if I needed to ask a question or had a concern. His positive attitude and honesty allowed us to trust him and this process, and we can’t imagine going through this without anyone else.
I love the hours and flexibility because working full time makes it difficult to schedule bloodwork and monitoring appointments in the middle of the day. Also, the ability go to other locations [RMA of NJ] for bloodwork and monitoring was fantastic because I work about an hour away from our primary office location. Being able to go to another office that was 10 min from my job made it so easy to stop before work, especially during the cycles that required very frequent appointments.
How was your experience with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr Molinaro made this experience so much better than we could have anticipated. He clearly communicated with us to help set goals, define our plan, and answer any and all questions we had.

While i have been told that I would likely do very well with ivf, finances are preventing me from going that route.... So far, one round of iui in process with clomid and ovidrel trigger. This is due to me having unexplained infertility and therefore was the recommended course of action the avoid the high oop costs of ivf.

From consult to treatment, Dr. M treated me like a person and I always knew and understood the process and the plan... I think it takes a special doctor and team to know whats best for the patient. Amazing follow-up and bedside manner and just a truly wonderful doctor. I have a wonderful 10 month old daughter because of him...He is the best! I felt so comfortable and understood so much after 1 visit with him.
I always felt rushed when speaking with the nursing staff [at RMA] and I often would have to ask for info to be repeated or ask for detailed info. This is one area where I feel they could do with some more help...this clinic is amazing and the staff is fantastic....It depended on the day and who was running the monitoring, but 95% of the time it was a quick and easy process... I also loved the collaboration between all the doctors in the practice.
How was your experience with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Molinaro. After a really terrible consult with another clinic/doctor, Dr Molinaro was a breath of fresh air. From consult to treatment, Dr. M treated me like a person and I always knew and understood the process and the plan. Another clinic has diagnosed me as the fertility issue due to a large fibroid and wanted me to have a major surgery before even testing my husband. Going to RMA and Dr. M, we learned the fibroid wasn't the issue and in fact it was male factor morphology so we moved right to IVF. Once pregnant, we have a rough couple weeks with concerns of a potential cornual pregnancy and Dr. M was with me every step of the way. I also loved the collaboration between all the doctors in the practice. I was sent to see one doctor who was the fibroid expert and saw Dr Bergh during the early pregnancy because he was the best with our problem. I think it takes a special doctor and team to know whats best for the patient. Amazing follow-up and bedside manner and just a truly wonderful doctor. I have a wonderful 10 month old daughter because of him and we will be starting the process for #2 in the next few weeks.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
He is the best! I felt so comfortable and understood so much after 1 visit with him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr Molinaro was hands on with my treatment, and stayed in contact every step of the way. I never doubted our course of treatment or the results.
Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
We did a estrogen priming cycle for retrieval with Follistim, Novadril,, Garnirelix, low dose hcg and lupron trigger. ICSI was a must for us with our primary infertility issue was male factor morphology. My first transfer was a medicate cycle with was unsuccessful, so for frozen transfer #2 we did a natural cycle and it was a success. Following the same protocol for this round as well.

Describe Thomas Molinaro's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
We had 3 embryos which made it to blast, and our first transfer was an eSET and was unsuccessful. Our second transfer was our choice, and we chose to do a multiple embryo transfer which resulted in a singleton birth.

He [Dr. Molinaro] always made sure I knew what was going on with my body and treatments and was very open about everything. He answered e-mails within the same day, called me a couple times to check me after a slight complication, and even e-mailed me on a Sunday morning about an hour or so before my FET to wish us good luck. I always felt very comfortable with him as my doctor. I am currently pregnant with our first child and already look forward to seeing Dr. Molinaro again in the future for our next children.
RMA of Eatontown is a very good office. The staff is all very friendly, including the phlebotomists (even at 6am), and they remember who you are. Even though I didn't see my primary doctor during all of my morning monitoring, all of the doctors I did see were great and explained things to me...She [nurse] described everything in very clear detail, so I never had any confusion on medications or dosages. If I couldn't speak to her until a certain time of day, she made sure that she was free to speak to me at that time...

Get him as your primary doctor for your treatments!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
RMANJ was the second infertility clinic I visited after 6 months of failed treatment elsewhere. One of the things I liked more about Dr. Molinaro was how he treated me and my husband like intelligent people (unlike the first place I wewnt, where every question I asked, I was answered like I was stupid and should've known the answer.) On our very first visit, Dr. Molinaro diagnosed my very obvious PCOS and we set a plan in place that my husband and I were comfortable with. All of our questions were answered and we never felt rushed.
Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
Since Dr. Molinaro completely disagreed with the first treatment I had done at another clinic, he decided to bypass any sort of pill treatment (Clomid. Letrozole). He also explained to me why they probably wouldn't work for me anyway. We decided to do 3 IUI cycles with injectible medications (Gonal-F). After the second one, we weren't sure what step to take next. Dr. Molinaro did not tell us what to do, but instead helped guide our decision to try one more round of IUI before moving onto IVF. Once we decided to go to IVF, Dr. Molinaro sat down and had an in-depth conversation with me and my husband describing how the whole cycle would go, how long it would take, etc. He answered all of our questions, both in the office and via e-mail. He explained why FET would work better for me than a fresh transfer, as well as transferring only 1 embryo at a time, so that is the route we took. Our first egg retrieval and (1)frozen egg transfer were both successful, resulting in a pregnancy with 1 baby boy due in January 2017. We have 2 frozen embryos that we plan on transferring one at a time in the future.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Samantha)
Samantha was a great nurse! She knew that I was a teacher and unable to answer phone calls during the day, so she made sure to leave me detailed messages every time she called or e-mailed. If I e-mailed her a question, she always responded within the day, mostly within just a couple of minutes. She described everything in very clear detail, so I never had any confusion on medications or dosages. If I couldn't speak to her until a certain time of day, she made sure that she was free to speak to me at that time. Once we got a positive pregnancy test, she was excited to tell us the good news and seems excited to see pictures of our baby once he's born (she also wanted to see pictures from our gender reveal party). It made me feel like I was her only patient.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
RMA of Eatontown is a very good office. The staff is all very friendly, including the phlebotomists (even at 6am), and they remember who you are. Even though I didn't see my primary doctor during all of my morning monitoring, all of the doctors I did see were great and explained things to me. My only complaint was once I was released. I had to pick up a folder of information from the front desk and the receptionist loudly congratulated me on being pregnant and released and wished me good luck, in front of a whole waiting room of women. As happy as I was, I was embarrassed when she spoke so loudly. I remember one morning while I was waiting for monitoring and she did the same to another woman; I remember being so jealous and wondering why she didn't keep her voice down.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
Morning monitoring, for the most part, was very quick and easy. I was usually in and out in under half an hour, with many visits being done within 10 minutes! One morning there was a back up and I couldn't stay. Since it wasn't a vital day during my cycle, I wasn't worried about having to come back the next day, but I got a little bit of an attitude from the receptionist when I told her I had to leave (as a teacher, I had no wiggle room to arrive to work late). Once I got home, I e-mailed my nurse to explain what happened and she answered within 10 minutes. She apologized and then she told me she spoke to Dr. Molinaro and he wanted me to wait an extra day so that HE himself could see me for monitoring.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey.
I don't remember the exact amount we spent, but between 3 IUIs, 1 IVF, and medications, we spent close to $30,000, all out of pocket. When 2 IUI cycles were not completed fully (we missed one out of 2 days for Christmas and another day bc of a snowstorm), I asked Dr. Molinaro if we could catch a little break on them. He didn't hesitate to answer, "of course" and he told our finance coordinator (who we had to switch) to take off 10% from our IUI bill. Since we also had an issue with our first finance coordinator, when I told Dr. Molinaro, he immediately took action to switch her for us and a new woman called us the next day.

Dr. Molinaro is very down to earth, personable, and caring. He shows a general interest of me as a human and now a mother and I never felt anything other than a friend with him. He was very honest when I needed him to be the most, yet caring in his way of delivering a message that could be hard to take. He was very accessible and i was never made to feel like I was a bother with my endless questions.
Excellent reputation because they know what they are doing! Brilliant doctors and scientists, well organized and executed in every aspect. The size of the clinic [RMA] and clientele can be overwhelming. Especially Basking Ridge...Alana was my primary nurse, and Ann Marie was my primary nurse for my last cycle only. Both were wonderful, smart, compassionate and quick to respond to questions and needs.
How was your experience with Thomas Molinaro at RMA of New Jersey?
My experience with Dr. Molinaro was nothing short of life changing. He not only gave me the children I have dreamed of but gave me a new trust in doctors that I never had before. In the past I have never really felt I had a say in my treatments. Dr. Molinaro listened to my thoughts and considered my point of view in all aspects of my care and he was very kind when he didn’t feel my thoughts were in my best interest, but also very supportive when he thought they were and willing to implement them into my treatment when appropriate. He was very good at making me feel like I was his only patient when I was in his care. Dr. Molinaro celebrated my successes and was very human in his responses to my failures. I absolutely valued and appreciated the personal phone calls with embryo reports and pregnancy test results. Many other doctors leave those calls for their nurses to make. I always felt my treatment suggestions were ones that would get me my end goal of a baby in the quickest and least expensive way possible. As a self paying patient with limited financial means, money was a huge factor and risk. Dr. Molinaro was very conscious of this in my treatment recommendations as well. Overall, I can’t say enough good things about him. If you’re on the fence between choosing Dr. Molinaro and another doctor, choose him. I went to him on a recommendation and personally know 5 other women successfully treated by him as well.

Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
My last cycle we “pulled out all the guns” with a Benadryl protocol, use of probiotics, and baby aspirin. I was gluten and dairy free for 6 months prior to my successful cycle although Dr. Molinaro said he didn’t feel this was the big difference between this cycle and my past failures. I had an extra 2 days of estrogen priming before my transfer and when it was time for progesterone, I used suppositories as well as injections to keep my progesterone levels as high as possible. I had a D and C done a few months prior as well to rule out polyps or inflammation/infection.

Describe Thomas Molinaro's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
Dr Molinaro is definitely an advocate of eSET. My last transfer I transferred 2 untested donor embryos as we both knew this was most likely my last transfer attempt, and because I had had so many failures. Also we had a long discussion of the possibility of multiples and I was ok if that happened. I never ever thought it would happen but alas, my one and only successful transfer resulted in twins.

Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
I USED GONAL F FOR AN IUI CYCLE. I WAS CONFUSED BECAUSE AT THE CONSULT, I WAS TOLD THEY WANTED TO START ON A HIGH DOSE, AND GO FROM THERE. TYPICALLY, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN STARTED ON A LOW DOSE BECAUSE OF MY PCOS, AND TENDANCY TO HYPERSTIMULATE. WHEN I GOT MY INSTRUCTIONS THE FIRST DAY, IT WAS BEGIN AT 75 IU, WHICH IS LOW. WHEN I QUESTIONED IT, I WAS TOLD THE INSURANCE WOULDN'T ALLOW ME TO BE STARTED HIGHER. SO IT SEEMS THEY REALLY FOLLOW THINGS TO THE LETTER OF THE LAW OVER THERE..... IT WAS A REGULAR IUI CYCLE, REGULAR INJECTIONS FOR ABOUT 2 AND HALF WEEKS, FOLLOWED BY A TRIGGER SHOT, AND ONE IUI. THIS CYCLE ENDED IN A NEGATIVE PREGNANCY TEST

I always said he [Dr Thomas Molinaro] was brutally honest yet confident. We had 3 out of 4 successful transfers with Dr. M.

He [Dr. Molinaro] is a great doctor. When we had zero fertilized after an ER- he called and spoke to both of us and cleared his schedule to see us in person. He helped us arrange to pay for the cycle so we could save our insurance for later. He answered questions I had about medical studies and elaborated on items I couldn't quite understand. If I am not comfortable with something, he explains it right away and he adjusts his protocol based on my concerns.
They [RMA - Eatontown] have a great lab, they are very big with many locations but you have to travel to basking ridge for major procedures. They are not on the autoimmune bandwagon yet...[monitoring appointments] It is like cattle call in basking ridge, but it's nice in eatontown. Everyone is friendly....Under 10k for monitoring and ER... He [Dr. Molinaro] really listens and explains everything- I know so much more about my body now. He explains why he does things, why he wouldn't do something else, and answers every question I have along the way.

Describe the protocols Thomas Molinaro used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
We did a max dose for ivf#4 since I didn't have a good response my last cycle. We did a natural cycle to rule out some suspicions about drug interactions. Then we adjusted meds to do a low dose injectable with femera to avoid raising estrogen levels too high. That protocol did the trick for us.

Although I dealt mostly with nurses and technicians, I knew Dr. Molinaro was handling my case, and never at any time did I feel like my treatment was unimportant or "standard." My treatment plan felt personalized to my circumstances, and he was always available for questions... IUI was fully covered by insurance, and our IVF was covered by a clinical study. We only paid for medications, which was incredibly reasonable.
RMA has amazing facilities at multiple locations, and state of the art equipment. We got to benefit from a new screening device. And the holistic therapies offered (like yoga, acupuncture, etc.), demonstrate that they understand fertility and health, and stress management, are all intertwined. Very comfortable space... I went to two locations (Eatontown and Basking Ridge), and the staff at both places was exceptional. The facilities were outstanding, and everyone was very compassionate.

The decision was left largely up to my husband and me, but with only two viable embryos left, there was little to consider. We went for both, hoping for at least one positive result, but instead got two incredibly healthy results!

Dr. Molinaro was very knowledgeable. He took time to listen to my needs and concerns. I just wish I could have seen and talked to him more often during my treatment as a patient there. I only saw him once for a consult, then he did my IUI once, and I saw him one final time when I made an appointment to discuss next steps when IUI treatments were failing.
[RMA of New Jersey is] Organized and efficient, but very busy. Get there early for morning monitoring if you have work or somewhere else to be early in the morning, as the wait can get very long even if you get there 30 minutes prior to the start of monitoring hours...Testing was always quick and I usually felt rushed...[nursing staff] were very knowledgeable, but again, seemed rushed.

He [Dr. Molinaro] is very candid and to the point. He is clearly knowledgeable and experienced. He was very direct with schedules and what steps were going to involved through the cycle. Dr. M also brought an objective, fresh perspective to our case and did not push us to hard in any particular direction. He wanted us to decide what is best for our own situation....

The waiting room/reception areas were comfortable and relaxing as well. The reception staff was organized and efficient.... Nursing staff was good and professional....

I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Molinaro. He ALWAYS showed awesome bedside matter and when emailing him with a question, he would always respond within the day. He is very attentive with his patients and I truly felt how much he cared and how much he wanted to us to reach our goal of becoming pregnant.... Dr. Molinaro always took his time with my husband and I. If we had questions during our appointment, he would let us ask all the questions we needed to ask in order to make sure we understood everything that was going to happen.
All in all RMANJ was amazing to work with. The only issue that I did have sometimes was when my nurse had the day off, I sometimes wouldn't receive a call with results which caused me to email Dr. Molinaro myself to find out the results....
