Dr. Dondik is very kind and takes her time to explain everything to me and answer all of my questions. I do a lot of research and bring ideas and concerns to the table based on my research. She never feels threatened or annoyed by this. Rather, she engages me on my ideas or concerns, and walks me through her recommendations and shares research as to why she recommends specific things. I have had four transfers and so far four miscarriages. When she diagnosed me
It feels like a family [at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York]. Everyone knows me, that I am a teacher, my history of pregnancy loss, my husband, etc. They know this and are considerate and kind. They get me appointments ASAP and always help me book them in the early mornings so I can make it to my school and classroom on time. Because it is so small, sometimes it can run very behind (especially if the usual nurse or doctor is away). Other than that, it is always a wonderful experience.
How was your experience with Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Dondik does a good job at looking at the individual rather than throw you into a routine because that is how it is usually done. For example, I make excellent progesterone. I make it each month and don't need help making it or keeping it elevated. Because of this, Dr. Dondik suggested I do a cycle without synthetic progesterone at all. I felt confident in this decision because it not only addressed my need but also allowed me to take a more "natural" path (as natural as IVF and FET can get, anyway). Dr. Dondik is also very understanding and considerate. She talks through options with me based on her recommendations and also what I can do realistically financially. She is kind and compassionate. For example, because I suffer from recurrent miscarriage she comes into every OB ultrasound so that she can tell me right away if there is a problem. I appreciate this because there isn't a pause where the ultrasound tech has to go get her. Dr. Dondik is also supportive during difficult times (like my miscarriages). I was having a lot of pain and was struggling to cope with it. She walked me through different pain management plans and let me choose the one that sounded the best for me personally. I do wish Dr. Dondik did all of my procedures (such as egg retrieval and FET). However, my clinic is set up so that doctors take turns rotating on the OR and it depends on which day you need for which doctor you get.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Don't be afraid to advocate for yourself with challenging questions, ideas, or concerns. Also, don't be afraid to show your emotions. Dr. Dondik is capable and handles it all with grace and care.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Dondik is very kind and takes her time to explain everything to me and answer all of my questions. I do a lot of research and bring ideas and concerns to the table based on my research. She never feels threatened or annoyed by this. Rather, she engages me on my ideas or concerns, and walks me through her recommendations and shares research as to why she recommends specific things. I have had four transfers and so far four miscarriages. When she diagnosed me with the last miscarriage, she actually got a little bit teary herself. It showed me that she really cares for me as a woman who is struggling - not just as a name on a chart or as a statistic. Also, during my egg retrieval cycle, there was some frustrating news that came up with my blood work. Dr. Dondik took the time to call me herself and make sure I understood what it meant and my next steps. I felt very respected and seen.
Describe the protocols Yelena Dondik used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
Dr. Dondik had be doing an agonist protocol. It started with birth control for about two weeks. Then I started injections of Gonal-F and Menopur. In my previous cycle, my estrogen level got too high too fast so she started me on a much lower dose. This helped with my estrogen. Over the course of 13 days my doses increased slightly. On my last day of stims, my estrogen jumped from about 2000 to 5500 overnight. She called to tell me that with estrogen that high before a trigger and retrieval, I was at serious risk for OHSS and that we would move this cycle to a freeze all. I appreciated her being so upfront with me so I could prepare myself for a freeze all. Dr. Dondik had be trigger with lupron to help avoid the estrogen spike that would come with an hcg trigger. On the day of retrieval I had 21 eggs retrieved, 17 mature, and ended up with four 5 day blastocysts. One was "good" and the other three were "fair".
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York. (Assigned nurse: Elena )
Elena is calm, caring, and extremely efficient. At first, she can come off as a little cold and distant. However, when you need her to be there for you she is as warm, kind, and caring as possible. She is supportive of schedules (I am an educator and need early appointments and she does that whenever possible and explains to me when she can't and why). She knows me and my history and is extremely delicate with beta hcg results. She is also good at answering my many questions, calls me back (or sends a portal message) within 24 hours (but almost always the same day), and never minds me taking care of my needs (whatever they may be). I trust her with my information, my medicine, and my treatments whole heartedly.
Describe your experience with NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
My clinic is the smaller offshoot office which means it is generally the same staff each and every visit. I love this about the RSNY Brooklyn office. It feels like a family. Everyone knows me, that I am a teacher, my history of pregnancy loss, my husband, etc. They know this and are considerate and kind. They get me appointments ASAP and always help me book them in the early mornings so I can make it to my school and classroom on time. Because it is so small, sometimes it can run very behind (especially if the usual nurse or doctor is away). Other than that, it is always a wonderful experience.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
I have insurance that covers monitoring appointments, some tests (not PGT or sperm fragmentation), and two retrievals (but not transfers). So out of pocket costs for me in total is around 14,000$. This includes diagnostic cycles, three IUI, two retrievals, embryo/embryologists costs (including insemination, freezing, storage), and four transfers.
Describe Yelena Dondik's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
Dr. Dondik recommends one embryo if they are tested and test normal. However, in my two cycles I did not do PGT testing becuase my insurance didn't cover it. My first transfer with her I did one embryo. It resulted in a chemical pregnancy. In my second transfer I transferred two untested embryo. It resulted in a singleton pregnancy that miscarried at around 7 weeks (but it wasn't viable from the first scan at 5 weeks).

Dr. Dondik took time with us, always explaining her recommendations in as much detail as we asked for. She was warm and empathetic and responded to our concerns with reassurance and helpful context. She also conveyed her passion for the field to us and inspired not just hope but also fascination in the science of reproductive medicine....As I didn't ovulate in the first cycle we tracked, I was given Femara (Letrozole) to stimulate ovulation. We did that for two cycles, inseminating during both. I got pregnant the second time.
Elena and the rest of the nursing and reception staff [at Reproductive Specialists of New York] were unfailingly kind, knowledgeable, responsive, helpful, and professional...We enjoyed and appreciated our time at the clinic. It's well run, clean, efficient, and beautiful. It's much smaller and more intimate than the previous clinic we went to in Park Slope. And the views are amazing!...There was some sort of mistake in scheduling our initial appointment, where the clinic had no record of the appointment that was made. They handled it very smoothly though and happened to have an opening, so I was able to be seen as planned.
How was your experience with Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?

Dr. Dondik is professional, well versed in the recent research, and seems genuinely invested in patient outcomes. We came after six months of trying and were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. Dr. Dondik recommended IUI medicated with Clomid, and we were lucky enough to get a positive pregnancy test on the first round. We "graduated" with a healthy eight week ultrasound.
I loved that the office [NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York] was small and efficient, and most of the time extremely warm and friendly...The clinic is clean, conveniently located (with a nice view, which is a bonus), and efficiently run. I loved how small it was, because it made it easy to deal with, and they were very understanding when travel delays made me quite late one day.

Describe the protocols Yelena Dondik used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
Dr. Dondik prescribed Clomid to start out. When she noticed a thinner uterine lining, she prescribed estrogen suppositories. We used our own genetic material.

Dr. Dondik is very approachable and always made me feel comfortable and cared for. Most importantly, she is a very capable doctor who is willing to consider outside opinions and research in order to achieve the goal of successful pregnancy. Following two failed transfers with tested embryos, I expressed to Dr. Dondik that I wanted to pursue reproductive immunology. She was completely open to this and referred me to an outstanding specialist who was able to more effectively diagnose our "unexplained infertility" and provided us with a protocol that made our third embryo transfer successful....
Elena and the rest of the nursing staff at the clinic [NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York] are simply amazing.

She was completely open to this and referred me to an outstanding specialist who was able to more effectively diagnose our "unexplained infertility" and provided us with a protocol that made our third embryo transfer successful. We are so grateful that Dr. Dondik was supportive of us taking this detour in our journey - she was willing to do anything to help us achieve a positive result, and willing to work with other doctors to make that happen.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Don't be afraid to do your own research and bring your questions and ideas to Dr. Dondik. Part of what makes her a great doctor is that she knows she doesn't know everything - the science in this field is constantly changing! - and she is open to outside ideas and opinions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr. Dondik is a kind and personable doctor. I felt that she was personally invested in our fertility journey, and really cared. She listened to my questions and concerns and took them seriously. Most importantly, when I brought outside suggestions to our consultations, she was open and receptive and provided me with additional referrals that allowed us to finally achieve our pregnancy goal.
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York. (Assigned nurse: Elena Longoria)
Elena and the rest of the nursing staff at the clinic are simply amazing. She is a great communicator, kind and very organized, open to questions and very patient, and also warm and personable. I really could not have gotten through this long process without Elena's kindness and caring. When I interacted with other nurses, for examples when I had to go to the other clinic to have my FET, I always found them to be kind and caring.
Describe your experience with NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
Strengths are that the medical and nursing staff are excellent. They are very organized but still keep the treatment personal - you do not feel like just a number. Weaknesses are the same as most other medical settings. The staff needs more support from NYU, in my opinion. They are overworked and understaffed. NYU closed 2 of their 4 offices at the start of the pandemic, which I think placed a greater demand on the remaining 2 offices. This did not affect the quality of care I received, but I would like to see better conditions for such excellent medical staff.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
Fortunately the majority of my treatment was covered by insurance, so I am not sure of specific costs.
Describe Yelena Dondik's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York.
NYU Langone has a pretty strict single-embryo transfer policy. Since our embryos were genetically tested, they never considered transferring more than one embryo.

How was your experience with Yelena Dondik at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York?
Dr Dondik was always warm and professional. Compassionate and understanding, she explained all procedures and risk. I started as an IUI candidate with PCOS and male Factor and after 3 unsuccessful IUI insemination we inquired about IVF. She explained the details and procedures for IVF. Also informed me that I was a high risk client to making a lot of eggs if not closely monitored know as Ovarian Hyper-stimulation. I was monitored closely and had many viable eggs. I eventually had 6 healthy embryos and 1 successfully transfer on my first cycle. Dr. Dondik has been supportive throughout my journey.

[Dr. Dondik] thinks out of the box and adjusts the treatment individually to each patient, adding different/sometimes non standard procedures/medications to the protocol. She was the only doctor who told me in the beginning that she had an idea what my issue could be and how to treat it. As a result, she offered a completely different and efficient approach comparing to other doctors. She could explain every step, back it up with academic reports and facts.
The Brooklyn office of the NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists is a small, cozy place where I was treated the best possible way: friendly, helpful, quick, professional.

Describe the protocols Yelena Dondik used in your cycles at NYU Langone Reproductive Specialists of New York and their degree of success.
I was tested positive for BCL6 - the marker that is elevated in endometriosis. So Dr. Dondik pre-treated my endometrial lining with Lupron and Letrozole for 2 months. The goal was to quiet the endometriosis in the uterine lining to improve the rate of implantation and pregnancy. Then I did frozen embryo transfer (PGT-a genetic testing).

Dr. Dondik was an excellent physician for a very stressful and emotional process. For every recommendation she made, she made herself available to explain it at length, why she thought it was the right course of action. If doubts came up later in the process, she made herself available again, including by phone. She wants you to be completely comfortable with the treatment you are getting, and for you to understand everything you need to know.
I would highly recommend this clinic. The only drawback is having to go to Long Island for surgical procedures. We had access to a car so this was not a problem. I had a good experience at the surgical facility...the [NYU Langone] nursing staff were all caring and excellent. Even though I only spent three months in treatment at the clinic, I felt like I got to know them all, and really came to appreciate their approach.

I was dealing with secondary unexplained infertility, and she said I had a good outlook. We did Clomid plus IUI. I did not feel prepared to undergo IVF and she did not push me towards that, but explained the pros and cons of various approaches. I also had surgery to remove a uterine fibroid, before beginning cycles. I was able to conceive and was very happy.
