He was very realistic and honest, which was an aspect we really appreciated. I remember the exact appointment when he told me that "why go through a third failed IUI, when I expect that you will be pregnant by your 1st IVF cycle."
[Our nurse] was very easily accessible via email (and I emailed a lot!). She was very patient and answered ALL my questions.
How was your experience with Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
We successfully conceived our first baby under Dr. Copperman and his team's care. We chose him as our doctor based on a friend's recommendation as well as personal research of his background/qualities. Dr. Copperman's knowledge and dedication to his patients' needs and plan is remarkable. We never once doubted his plan for us, as he was very confident in what would ultimately work for us. Despite not seeing Dr. Copperman at every monitoring appointment, we trusted his team of doctors. Since all the RMA doctors work very closely together, we knew we were in good hands. He was very realistic and honest, which was an aspect we really appreciated. I remember the exact appointment when he told me that "why go through a third failed IUI, when I expect that you will be pregnant by your 1st IVF cycle." Despite how hard it was to hear certain news during the emotional process, we knew we could trust Dr. Copperman's expertise to guide us to conceive as easily/quickly as possible. Even at Dr. Copperman's level, he took the time to speak to us thoroughly about our concerns and answered all of our questions throughout the journey. We couldn't be more grateful for all that RMA has done for us, especially Dr. Copperman.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
Trust him! It's really hard to give away 100% control of this journey to conceive, but giving the doctor your trust is the first step. Also, having a "list" of questions/concerns ready in your head to discuss (aka be prepared as much as possible) helps. As everyone knows, doctors are all very busy and doing this will help ensure all will be addressed.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
We 100% felt like patients. Dr. Copperman and I even joked about the intensity of signing up for Soul Cycle (NYC spinning class). The other doctors at RMA also were good at getting to know us. Everyone from the front desk to Dr. Copperman would know who we are (granted we were there ALL the time, as you know....). Despite all of above, the RMA team was still very efficient at getting all the patients in and out of monitoring, which as we know, is the most daunting. Even after our son was born, and we brought him into RMA, Dr. Copperman clearly remembered us.

She was very easily accessible via email (and I emailed a lot!). She was very patient and answered ALL my questions. She took the time to get to know us but yet keep a professional demeanor.

Success w/ Doc Not sure
He [Dr. Copperman] is a talented doctor but definitely lacks bedside manner. You go to him for his expertise and success rates, not because he is going to make you feel warm and fuzzy. I liked seeing other doctors in the practice who were a little warmer, but knowing that he was reviewing all the blood work and sonograms was good.
It [RMA of New York] feels like a factory. the morning check-in for blood and ultrasound are very crowded. you have to wait, sometimes up to 45 minutes to get in for blood and then wait again for a doctor to come see you. then if you have additional questions you have to wait for a nurse. when you are cycling through for IVF and have to be there almost daily for 10 days its hard not to feel frustrated and just a number.

I liked seeing other doctors in the practice who were a little warmer, but knowing that he was reviewing all the blood work and sonograms was good. i did have some losses, one in particular that was devastating, and he was very helpful. at the end of the day i owe my two amazing sons to him.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
he is a clinician first with a high volume practice. you will get pregnant there but he won't be your best friend.

Describe the protocols Alan Copperman used in your cycles at RMA of New York and their degree of success.
i dont remember sorry. i think I blocked it all out.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New York. (Assigned nurse: anne)
anne and hilde were absolutely amazing. they were my first cycles for my oldest. Second time around his staff was not nearly as good. HIlde was in midwifery school so wasn't as available and anne was out on maternity leave. one nurse gave me a dosage error during an iVF cycle and nearly destroyed the cycle.
Describe your experience with RMA of New York.
factory. front desk staff probably dealt with way too many hormonal women to count and now is in robot mode.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New York.
ugh. you had to wait. you didnt know if it would be 10 minutes or 40 minutes. during a 10 day cycle its awful when you are racing to get to work. The waiting room is absolutely packed. And they make you go back into the waiting room between blood and doctor sonogram (in 2010/2011 you went right in). general impression of the difference between 2010/2011 and 2013/2014 was that they got too big too fast
Describe the costs associated with your care under Alan Copperman at RMA of New York.
we had 5 cycles. insurance paid for 2 and change but even after that the doctor's visits were covered by coinsurance. it was just the transfer, retrieval, ICSI, etc that wasn't covered. Probably 20K out of pocket for all of it
What specific things went wrong at RMA of New York?
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of New York.
one of the nurses gave incorrect hormone information during an IVF cycle. it was caught when I asked a question to a different nurse as I contrasted what she said to my prior day's instructions. Doctor called me immediately and had me come in the next day. At the end of the day we were still able to do the retrieval.

Dr Copperman was empathetic and always available for questions. ... We only discussed eSET, I am not interested in multiples because of the increased risk of miscarriage and preterm births. ... Dr Copperman took time to answer my questions and explain changes in my protocol. He called me directly with results on a few occasions and was comforting when I found out I miscarried. ... Wish there was more guidance on what I didn't know to ask.
The office [RMA of New York] has a high volume and during the morning monitoring it felt more like a clinic but the doctor was great outside of that experience. ... Both assigned nurses were great. They explained the medication side effects and answered all questions. On the occasion that a different nurse called I had mixed experiences. One gave misinformation about the embryo stage another forgot something I mentioned to her. Overall the two primary were exceptional the others were just ok.
How was your experience with Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
Dr Copperman took time to answer my questions and explain changes in my protocol. He called me directly with results on a few occasions and was comforting when I found out I miscarried. The conversation was driven by my questions most of the time. Wish there was more guidance on what I didn't know to ask. Although its hard to know what you don't know. Did not feel like a number and felt like I received the needed amount of attention at each stage.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
It's a busy office, come with your questions and do your research. It will help you get better answers from the doctors and staff.

I did not get to see him [Dr. Alan Cooperman] at all visits and that was ok with me. He is a busy doctor but always answered all my questions when i did see him. When i did not end up with any normal embryos the first time he tweaked the protocol and we ended up with normal embryos the second time around. He performed both of my embryo transfers. When my first embryo transfer did not work he reviewed my case with the team and i ended up pregnant with my second embryo transfer. I am forever greatful for him. He always works hard to get you to your baby.
[RMA of New York] is a very busy office. Their morning monitoring hours are perfect for the working person. I like that bloodwork and sono were done fairly quickly and i was able to get out quite fast and get to work on time. You will not always see your doctor but a doctor always performs your sonograms and answer any questions you may have. The nurses that draw your blood work soo hard and are very kind.
How was your experience with Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
I am very grateful for Dr. Copperman. He was the third fertility doctor i had seen. After Many failed iuis with previous doctors i met with Dr. Copperman.

When we learned that I had premature ovary aging, he [Dr Copperman of RMA New York] came up with a plan of attack and is the reason why I have two chromosomally normal frozen embryos. He modified the protocol and kept me going even though I did not have egg retrieval until day 15 - he would not give up and kept me motivated the whole way. He is, of course, a wealth of knowledge but also a great supporter, and I felt that he was truly invested in making my cycles successful.
Dr. Copperman [of RMA New York] will tell you like it is and is up front and honest. I really appreciate that. When we had unexpected bumps on the road, he changed protocol and kept me motivated. Every time I saw him, he said, don't worry, we're getting there and we're going to make this happen. His motivation, persistence and aggressive protocol were essential for my success.

I also had to push Dr. Copperman to do more and go stronger with medication. He was pretty lax and I knew he needed to up my doses. Some of the early treatments I felt were a waste of money. But I overall got a beautiful baby and I really did like Copperman. He was a very non-alarmist.
It's literally a cattle call. You wait your turn. It's fast and efficient but not personal...but I did like the nurses I met with and I did like dr. Copperman....Hilda [nurse at RMA of New York] became like a friend she was wonderful and always talked me through everything.

Then low dose injections and IUI servers times that resulted in nothing. Finally 3 rounds of IVF the first 2 with low dose injections and the last I told him to pump me up and that is when we got the baby and 3 to freeze.

We felt like he was bored by our questions and was too busy to really address our concerns. I did like how he did reach out personally after each failed cycle.
Was most impressed with the office staff and Dr. Copperman's assistant [Heidi]. Wait times would vary, you wanted to get there before 8 or it would be too crowded and you would wait 1/2 hour.
How was your experience with Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
I started fertility treatment with Coppermann be finding his name on this list of top doctors in the New York Times. He does his treatment in cycles of 3 which I liked - therefor I had 3 cycles of clomid, 3 IUI's and 3 IVF's with him. I would not describe Coppermann as particularly warm with a great bedside manner- he did explain the process and answer all out questions but at times we felt like he was bored by our questions and was too busy to really address our concerns. I did like how he did reach out personally after each failed cycle.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
I would say demand the attention. Ask for sit-downs with the doctor before and after treatment. Do your research and homework.

My first initial meeting with Dr. Copperman was great. He went through all of my paperwork in a lot of detail. Unfortunately, I have to complete 6 IUI treatments before moving onto IVF, so we are working towards that... My first appointment at RMA was incredible. I met with not only my doctor, but the whole team. The financial consultant, my nurse, my IVF coordinator - everyone was SO helpful and gave me all of their direct contact information. Everyone is so accessible and easy to get in touch with.

He Dr. Copperman] was efficient and I am sure knows what he is doing but is not warm and does not explain details or even the general process well. I barely saw him, the one time I had him for sonogram he was not encouraging and I thought of switching, but since I was in the middle of a cycle I didnt....Did not explain well and was not warm....He used menorpur and gonal f. No real explanation or rationalization
Nice place [RMA] pretty well organized, try not to get Dr. Letterman. He was rough during sonograms...stay on top of your cycle, they may not always be on it and ask questions they might not think to ask...She [nurse] was much more communicative than the doctor! Would deserve much more credit for any success, had it happened...Well run, [monitoring appts] at an inconvenient time, I live in queens and it is from 7-8:30 am.
How was your experience with Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
He was efficient and I am sure knows what he is doing but is not warm and does not explain details or even the general process well.

Nice place pretty well organized, try not to get Dr. Letterman. He was rough during sonograms.

He [Dr Copperman] is kind and compassionate, and really feels invested in our success. My biggest critique is that he is sometimes overly optimistic, and won't entertain 'next steps' or worst case scenarios in a cycle unless or until they happen. He's a cheerleader through the process.
It's [RMA New York] definitely a bit of a factory feel, but it also runs like a well-oiled machine....First time around they were amazing; I cried when I said goodbye to our primary nurse as I transitioned to the OB. This time, my IVF coordinator is fantastic, but I have talked to a different nurse each time and it doesn't feel as warm.

Describe the protocols Alan Copperman used in your cycles at RMA of New York and their degree of success.
After our 4th failed IUI, he encouraged us to move onto IVF bc we were approaching later 30s. Based on my response to Clomid, he predicted I would be a low responder and put me on an antagonist protocol (no estrogen priming, no Lupron suppression). He was pretty spot on in his predictions of how the cycle would go--and I ended our first fresh IVF cycle with a positive beta and a healthy, full term singleton.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New York.
Monitoring was mostly well-oiled; the waits were never onerous. I appreciated that they did not feel disruptive to the work day, but it also meant luck of the draw (ha ha) for phlebotomists and doctors.

At the beginning he [Dr Alan Copperman] seems too nice that you don't know if should entirely believe him or if he is trying to overly convince you. But once you ask questions and realize he is very transparent and treats you with respect I trusted all his recommendations because he truly cares about his patients...Dr. Copperman was straightforward and he provided all information about my case and answered my questions. He was also very kind when I had a miscarriage at month three during my second pregnancy.

How was your experience with Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
Pros: Straight forward, open minded about non-traditional treatments to use as a complement (i.e. acupuncture), it was important for me to know the details of the treatment and why did we have to do IVF and he very willing to educate me and provide explanations even if it required extra time.

I only had a consultation with him [Dr. Copperman]. He said I could call or email with any concerns but then when I left and tried to call or email they said to speak to the nurses or coordinators. Im trying to decide if I should move forward with him... He seems really nice but I havent gone through with the treatment yet.... They [RMA] are very responsive via email. The finance department told me exactly what I would be paying for and how much. Im concerned about the price and am shopping around.

He [Dr. Alan Copperman] is responsive, kind and excellent at managing the medicine levels for optimal results. He is not always the biggest fan of alternative treatments but he will listen and agree to trying out of the box methods as long as they won't cause harm.... He was compassionate and kind when we had a miscarriage and was truly thrilled when we had our baby.
You can wait for a long time on a Saturday [at RMA of NY]. The finance department does not always explain all your options. Ask questions. The nurses are responsive and great. If you have questions take the time to meet with your nurse after morning hours.... Layla [a nurse] and her staff were wonderful and caring. They actually kept in touch with me during my pregnancy to just check in!

My experience was long and grueling but I got the outcome I wanted. They were willing to keep going with me as long as I wanted and were helpful in the process.

I'd rather have an effective RE than a nice guy, and that was my choice.

Wonderful bedside manner. Very thorough, though, I would have liked a follow up appointment with him after the egg extraction to discuss the quality of the eggs / embryos.
Don't expect to see your doctor at every blood work or appointment. Dr. Copperman did not do my extraction nor my implantation. The staff was very warm and I felt like they genuinely cared about my well being.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He [Dr. Copperman] has an excellent coordinator and nurse who quickly relayed information...He’s the chairman so if you want to see the same doctor every visit, he may not be the best choice. I wanted the best chance for a healthy baby, which is why I chose Dr. Copperman...Follistim 225 daily, 1 vial Menopur for a few days then 2 vials. Trigger shot! And that’s it for the retrieval. Estradiol 6mg daily and progesterone 50 nightly...
Katrina Garbin is a fantastic nurse [at RMA of New York]! Smart, considerate and genuinely calmed me down on multiple occasions...It’s a big operation. Doesn’t have a strong holistic or nutrition component which I think would be helpful. They do have a nutritionist but I did not work with them...He’s [Dr. Copperman] a brilliant doctor! We have had better than expected results thus far...It’s an amazing feeling to completely trust the process since he is my doctor...

Dr. Copperman is a phenomenal physical....was very direct with his assessment and best course of action...is highly knowledgeable, which have me security in following his guidance...He also had a wonderful bedside manner...feel like he had a vested interest in my journey
[RMA of New York] are excellent and run efficiently. Parking is horrid...I paid $87 each visit (3 times a week) during monitoring for parking...for the equivalent of 15 minutes...they should provide a discount for parking....feels a bit like a cattle call. Not sure how they decide who goes first

Dr. Copperman has always given me his honest expert opinion -- many times in person -- even when the news was not what I necessarily wanted to hear. During the period of 4 years, from the time I underwent and completed an elective egg freezing cycle to ultimately using donor eggs to conceive a daughter with my now-husband, I've always found Dr. Copperman and his team accessible, concerned and deeply committed my success.
The third party team at RMA New York is exceptional. Everyone who touched our case was super organized, compassionate and truly rooting for our success... My only issue with RMA during the donor process was a lack of communication and 100% transparency about the rate of drop-off that's present in any cycle. I don't feel that we were fully informed about what to expect in this regard especially given my history. Had we been made truly aware and realized the rate of drop-off that we'd likely see from the start, we would have chosen to move forward with a non-shared cycle instead of a shared cycle. In the end, we had 3 embryos total and 2 were used to achieve our daughter. We have only 1 remaining.
How was your experience with Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
I first worked with Dr. Copperman for my elective egg freezing cycle while still single. Only 2 eggs were retrieved and he informed me that he felt the peak of my fertility was likely several years earlier, in my 20s, which I felt was a little harsh at the time (I was 34 at the time of retrieval). Four years later, now married and with many disappointments on the fertility journey already under my belt, Dr.Copperman was exactly the doctor I needed. He gave me his expert opinion about my prognosis and best next steps for achieving a live birth (donor eggs). With his recommendation corroborated by another doctor at a different top NYC facility, we decided to move forward, with Dr. Copperman leading the charge. I was ready to stop chasing unicorns and wanted the outcome I was looking for, basically, to be a mom and to be able to carry our child.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
If you're truly ready for the outcome that you've been pushing for, whether the end result is exactly what you envisioned at the start, a little or even a lot different, Dr. Copperman is your guy.

Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New York. (Assigned nurse: Dara Berg)
The third party team at RMA New York is exceptional. Everyone who touched our case was super organized, compassionate and truly rooting for our success.
Describe your experience with RMA of New York.
RMA has a lot of patients overall but I found the third party experience to be very personalized, which it should be, given the financial investment. I didn't pay too much attention to what the waiting room looked like as far as physical bodies waiting for monitoring by the time I reached this point and was more concerned about the actual level of care.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New York.
I saw Dr. Copperman at nearly every monitoring appointment and once pregnant, he did my first ultrasound and released me personally several weeks later. When we had a scare midway through the pregnancy (unrelated to RMA), he saw us immediately to discuss and offer his opinion even though I was technically no longer under his care and hadn't been for several weeks.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Alan Copperman at RMA of New York.
$24k shared donor egg cycle + additional transfer required to achieve pregnancy ($3k) + pregnancy visits ($1k) + frozen embryo storage ($1k/year) + required psych eval (few hundred) + meds.
Describe Alan Copperman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New York.
We transferred one embryo at a time (I did 2 transfers in total) to reduce chance of multiples and limit overall risk.
What specific things went wrong at RMA of New York?
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of New York.
Since I was never able to retrieve any eggs of my own in previous cycles while trying to get pregnant (vs. elective egg freezing several years earlier), I didn't realize the significant rate of drop-off when it comes to eggs retrieved vs. embryos fertilized vs. those embryos that survive, mature and are viable. My only issue with RMA during the donor process was a lack of communication and 100% transparency about the rate of drop-off that's present in any cycle. I don't feel that we were fully informed about what to expect in this regard especially given my history. Had we been made truly aware and realized the rate of drop-off that we'd likely see from the start, we would have chosen to move forward with a non-shared cycle instead of a shared cycle.

Dr. Copperman is an excellent doctor, a kind and compassionate human who is also honest and straightforward. He has a very calm demeanor and a positive attitude...I did three rounds of IVF with Copperman. The first was in 2014 when I was 34, and this was the most productive. I had 7 embryos (all male, 1 girl) and gave birth to a healthy baby boy in 2015. In 2017 I returned again, and the female embryo didn’t make it through the thaw process so I transferred another boy which resulted in another healthy baby...
Amazing staff [at RMA of New York], an efficient and effective process with checks and balances built in along the way, and it was always easy to get ahold of someone. While it can feel factory like, the personal nurse assigned changes that...The entire staff was warm and personable, while also being focused and down to business...They are a well-oiled machine with an efficient and effective process...
How was your experience with Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
Dr. Copperman is an excellent doctor, a kind and compassionate human who is also honest and straightforward. He has a very calm demeanor and a positive attitude. He’s the opposite of a slick marketing machine. I did three rounds of IVF with Copperman. The first was in 2014 when I was 34, and this was the most productive. I had 7 embryos (all male, 1 girl) and gave birth to a healthy baby boy in 2015. In 2017 I returned again, and the female embryo didn’t make it through the thaw process so I transferred another boy which resulted in another healthy baby. In 2020 at age 39 I returned for two more rounds of IVF with purpose to get a female embryo and I was not nearly as successful… only getting one male embryo. In hindsight I should have done an IVF round in 2018 after giving birth. But I wound up accepting reality and successfully transferring a 3rd male embryo, and now I am the mother of three beautiful boys. RMA gets criticized for being a factory, but that’s what you want! They are a well-oiled machine with an efficient and effective process. Fertility is NOT the time to go boutique, it’s the time to go with the operation who has a lock-step process in place.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
Trust the process but do NOT delay another minute in getting your fertility journey underway.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Alan Copperman at RMA of New York?
Dr. Copperman is a lovely person and has a very calm demeanor. He was always positive while also being honest especially in my latter cycles at a later age.
