How was your experience with Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
I doubt Dr. Fischer remembers my name or anything about my personal life, which doesn't matter because she provided the top-notch medical care I was hoping for. She answered my questions with deep knowledge, empathy, and a refreshingly dry wit. Dr. Fischer gave accurate estimates and, as far as I could tell, did a near-perfect job with the medication dosages and timing. She ended up retrieving 15 mature eggs while inducing minimal negative side effects from the medications or the procedure itself. The only hitch in my treatment was when Dr. Fischer prescribed Aygestin to try to time my cycle when I didn't actually need it, but after I contacted my care navigator Dr. Fischer fixed the prescriptions quickly. By this point we'd talked about scheduling my cycle for months, each time with some Aygestin thrown in to avoid some inconvenient travel I had scheduled, so I can understand why the mix-up happened.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
She's great! For anyone (not just Dr. Fischer's patient) going through egg freezing I'd recommend asking questions so you understand each kind of medication you'll take, when it's administered, and why. The number of medications you'll have to handle is overwhelming at first and actually building a mental model of them helps a lot.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
As a <30 year old woman with no known history of hormonal or fertility issues, I think I had a relatively uncomplicated egg retrieval. That said, even with my cookie-cutter cycle Dr. Fischer and the team did a great job accommodating my needs and schedule.
Describe the protocols Catha Fischer used in your cycles at Spring Fertility New York and their degree of success.
I had a 5 year old Mirena IUD throughout my treatment. We attempted a cycle in September 2023 but couldn't start when predicted due to an ovarian cyst. Dr. Fischer had me blast it out with Lupron, which didn't work because I'd forgotten to put the medicine in the fridge when I got it (oops) and we followed up with Pregnyl. Afterwards, I probably could have started my cycle as normal but I chose not to because it conflicted with upcoming travel plans. In 2024 I think I had a relatively cookie-cutter egg freezing cycle. I never got a positive ovulation test when waiting to start and Dr. Fischer said it was possible I never ovulated, but the timing and medications seemed to work all the same: - 150 units Menopur/225 units Follistim nightly for the first ~week, to simulate the growth of multiple follicles. After the first week, the Follistim was reduced to 150 units. - 250 units Ganirelix every morning so the follicles wouldn't ovulate early after the first week - 75 units Menopur/100 units Follistim ~40 hours before retrieval - Leuprolide acetate trigger shot 36 hours before retrieval
Describe your experience with your nurse at Spring Fertility New York. (Assigned nurse: Aaliyah Holliday)
My care coordinator, Aaliyah, responded quickly to messages in my patient portal and consulted with her teammates or followed up on my calls exactly when she said she would. She was patient with my questions and inconvenient travel plans and she helped assuage a lot of my early anxiety when I didn't see positive ovulation test results. The nurses at Spring were kind, helpful, and mostly in the loop with my treatment plan. And when I had a question they couldn't answer, they could reach the doctor pretty easily to get it resolved. I never felt ignored or misled and was basically never fed conflicting information. All the staff at Spring really do seem to care about their patients and will go the extra mile to make sure what they're telling you is correct.
Describe your experience with Spring Fertility New York.
I would recommend Spring to anyone seeking fertility treatment. Everyone on the staff that I talked to regularly - my care navigator, the doctor/nurse on call, the billing department - was competent, professional, responsive, and seemed genuinely interested in helping me. The location next to Times Square is very convenient, great for when you have blood draws scheduled every other day. Cons: They're more expensive than Kindbody, but I'd rather know that my case is being handled well than get a suboptimal outcome and wonder if it's because I was trying to save a couple thousand dollars.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York.
$250 consultation. $9,960 for treatment, including monitoring appointments, most bloodwork, and the retrieval itself. $3,242 for medication (I had to order extra trigger shots due to an ovarian cyst and forgetting to refrigerate some medications).
Describe Catha Fischer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Spring Fertility New York.
Didn't get embryos, only eggs.
What specific things went wrong at Spring Fertility New York?
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Spring Fertility New York.
The conflicting information I received is minor enough as to almost not be worth mentioning, but I'll mention it because I think it demonstrates how this clinic goes above and beyond for its patients even when things are confusing. Dr. Fischer prescribed me a Lupron shot to force my body to get rid of an ovarian cyst that was interfering with my treatment, but I realized at injection time I'd forgotten to refrigerate the medication. In a panic I phoned the doctor on call, Dr. Klatsky, who guided me through the shot and scheduled followup blood work. Over the course of a single weekend Dr. Klatsky reviewed my results, prescribed a second shot of Pregnyl, scheduled/reviewed my bloodwork again, then made a point of following up with my care navigator to let her know that my cyst was cleared and I should be good for a slightly delayed egg retrieval cycle. This confused my care navigator on Monday, who (correctly) understood that the delay wouldn't work with my schedule that month. I'm not Dr. Klatsky's patient, so it makes sense that he didn't have the full context behind my cycle scheduling. Still, he took the time to ensure that Dr. Fischer's directive (popping my ovarian cyst) was carried out well and to think about my cycle more holistically as though I were his patient.

Dr. Fischer is a brilliant doctor and scientist. At the same time, she is an excellent and caring clinician with an exceptional bedside manner. Throughout my treatment, starting with our initial meeting and consultation, I felt that she strove to meet me where I was, and I am sure she does so with every one of her patients. She is willing to cater her care to each individual. I am someone who wants a lot of information to understand what is going on (especially when it came to understanding as much as possible about why I had had repeated losses), and she was willing to provide that information to me whenever I had questions and to the extent she was able to find answers for us. She created a trusting relationship right off the bat, and this also allowed me to relax and sometimes let go of needing to understand each step (especially once we were in the thick of egg retrieval, and I just went with whatever she recommended I do).
The [Spring Fertilty] clinic space itself is really nice, and the surgical and lab floor where retrievals happen and eggs are fertilized is state of the art...everything flowed like a well-oiled machine...I rarely had to wait longer than 5 minutes for my appointments to start. It was easy to schedule the next appointment...My only minor critique is related to the finance department. I did occasionally have trouble getting timely responses to emails, though when I did eventually get responses, I was able to get resolution to my questions. I did have to follow up a few times, which was sometimes frustrating.
How was your experience with Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
Dr. Fischer went above and beyond to provide me with excellent care. I am fairly certain she was supposed to be off work on the day of my second egg retrieval, and she came to do the procedure anyway. (I would note that I don't agree with this, and I think she should take her well earned days off, but I did appreciate it very much!) Our relationship started after I read reviews of Spring and Dr. Fischer specifically on FertilityIQ. My husband and I had a first meeting with her where we discussed our history of miscarriage, and where we began talking about IVF. We came to the table ready to start IVF right away - we did not want to begin with other interventions - and she was understanding of that decision. She immediately began strategizing our next steps for and assured us that she would do all she could to help us find success. Fertility is extremely complicated and there are so many nuances; I always felt that she would provide as much information as we wanted to have about what was going on, and that we could always ask questions. Dr. Fischer is clearly a busy doctor, and very beloved by her patients, but I always felt that she was extremely present every time I saw her for an ultrasound or an appointment during this process. I am grateful to her for her dedication and excellent care, and I would refer my friends to her in a heartbeat.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
She is a popular doctor, so you should book early! :) In all seriousness, I would say that she will take your care seriously and root for your success. She will be as aggressive as she needs to be to get you to the outcome you want.

Describe the protocols Catha Fischer used in your cycles at Spring Fertility New York and their degree of success.
I did two rounds of egg retrieval back to back. The first was shorter, requirng about 8 days of medication, and the second required about 14 days of medication. I think I was on a fairly routine dosage schedule, but she pushed harder the second round to get more mature eggs. I did typical Gonal-F and Menopur injections the first 5-6 nights and then the antagonist (Cetrotide) was added to suppress ovulation. During the second round, we went longer and my night time injections were reduced slightly towards the end, but we kept going for longer. In the first round, I produced 15 eggs, 9 of which were mature and fertilized via ICSI, and 5 of those became day 6 embryos. We PGT-A tested, and all 5 were euploid. For the second round, I produced 16 eggs, 11 were mature and fertilized via ICSI, and all 11 made it to day 6; 7 were euploid after PGT-A testing. We were very impressed with these results, and were of course grateful that Dr. Fischer achieved such a good outcome for us.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Spring Fertility New York. (Assigned nurse: Dana)
Dana was my assigned nurse during the entire process (genetic work up, two egg retrievals, and prep and completion of transfer), and she is wonderful. I felt so lucky to get to work with her. Not only is she extremely smart and on top of the protocol I was on (and I imagine she has a lot of patients!), she had a wonderful and calming presence. Even when she was not available, I was always able to reach someone on Dr. Fischer's care team, and they were all very professional and great to work with. I really appreciated that if someone did not know the answer to a question, they would just say so and then check and call me back. In general, the office experience is very smooth and appointments moved quickly and on time. During the egg retrievals and IVF transfer, I was assisted by a wonderful team of nursing staff on the surgical floor. They were also very kind and had wonderful beside manners.
Describe your experience with Spring Fertility New York.
The clinic space itself is really nice, and the surgical and lab floor where retrievals happen and eggs are fertilized is state of the art. It is just really impressive. Also, everything flowed like a well-oiled machine. Most of us are used to waiting for a long time for appointments with doctors, and I rarely had to wait longer than 5 minutes for my appointments to start. It was easy to schedule the next appointment, and I was rarely at the clinic for longer than 15-20 minutes when I had routine appointments (like ultrasounds). My only minor critique is related to the finance department. I did occasionally have trouble getting timely responses to emails, though when I did eventually get responses, I was able to get resolution to my questions. I did have to follow up a few times, which was sometimes frustrating.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York.
We had Progyny coverage for the two egg retrievals, so we paid our insurance deductible and the rest (e.g. both retrievals and all associated appointments, as well as medications) was covered. My husband switched jobs after both egg retrievals and we no longer had Progyny, so we paid for our embryo transfer out of pocket (~5K).
Describe Catha Fischer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Spring Fertility New York.
Dr. Fischer (and I believe Spring in general) only transfers one embryo at a time as a matter of policy. My understanding is that they do not make exceptions to this. I agree with this approach because of the risks a multiple pregnancy can present for the mother and for the fetuses. I believe they are making this recommendation because the science supports it, and I did not have a problem with this approach.
What specific things went wrong at Spring Fertility New York?
  • Lost paperwork
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Spring Fertility New York.
As I noted above, an issue came up with finance when only our insurance billing information was sent to the labs doing our genetic workups (we had Progyny at the time, so we the labs should have received our Progyny insurance information). We were able to work this out over the course of several months, though it was occasionally challenging to reach the finance department.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Doctor Fisher perfectly combines being kind, direct, and positive while maintaining realistic expectations. She is also very lighthearted, which would make you feel comfortable during the long and complex process of IVF...My first cycle used an antagonist protocol, and I didn't have good results, but when discussing the process results, Doctor Fischer suggested a mid-luteal protocol and growth hormone. I feel optimistic knowing my doctor can offer different options.
The [Spring Fertility] clinic location is fantastic, easy to get to from wherever you are in the city. What I valued the most was the early appointments because my job is super restrictive. I was always seen on time and made it to work on time, after my monitoring appointments. If the doctor did ultrasounds on other patients, I got my blood drawn. The medical assistants were efficient at keeping everyone moving as fast as possible. They are so organized, and the clinic faculties are very clean.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
Just make the initial appointment and let her guide you. If you have any suspicions about fertility issues, even if your primary care doctor disagrees, get evaluated. The earlier you schedule an appointment, the better. The doctor can only do so much, and every year counts.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
I always felt treated as an individual and with respect. The team worked with my cycle, and my timelines and didn’t medicate me to fit into a particular schedule like other clinics do.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York.
They have two insurances and transparent billing practices. Strangely, they cannot store credit cards to collect copays. I had to swipe my card every time I had an appointment. Eventually, someone sent me a link to pay online, and I would just pay before I arrived.

She [Dr. Fischer] is a very experienced and talented clinician, who chose a great protocol for me, and was able to grow my cohort of eggs to maturity so cohesively, that every egg was able to be frozen except just one...I had an early follicular phase protocol, which started with a combination of Follistim and low dose Pregnyl...Around day 7, I started Ganirellix as the antagonist, and then used Pregnyl and Lupron for the trigger shots. After each visit, which consisted of an ultrasound to measure the size of the follicles and bloodwork, I received updated medication instructions tailored to me based on how my follicles were responding to the treatment...
I appreciate how Spring is organized, so that it was easy to email or speak with my care team at any time. It was a very high touch experience, and I felt that the treatment was tailored to me and my body, with 6 ultrasound and bloodwork visits over the course of the 2 weeks, with adjusted dosages after each visit and a new visit scheduled to understand how my follicles would respond to the new dosage...

Ask lots of questions.
Describe the protocols Catha Fischer used in your cycles at Spring Fertility New York and their degree of success.
I had an early follicular phase protocol, which started with a combination of Follistim and low dose Pregnyl. There is currently a national shortage of Menopur, so I took a higher dose of Follistim combined with the low dose Pregnyl instead. Around day 7, I started Ganirellix as the antagonist, and then used Pregnyl and Lupron for the trigger shots. After each visit, which consisted of an ultrasound to measure the size of the follicles and bloodwork, I received updated medication instructions tailored to me based on how my follicles were responding to the treatment. The results were excellent, as 94% (all except 1 egg) reach maturity and were able to be frozen. I could see that there is almost an art (and a lot of medical expertise) when it comes to how Dr. Fischer chose to modify the protocol over the course of the 2 weeks, and then chose the right day for the trigger shot.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Spring Fertility New York. (Assigned nurse: Dana)
Dana was an excellent and compassionate nurse, as were all the nursing staff I connected with over the course of my treatment. The session with Dana to go over the trigger shot and to understand the retrieval was very helpful.

She [Dr. Fischer] took a lengthy amount of time to get to know me, my background, and what I want in terms of a family in the future. She supported me as a single parent of choice while just getting out an unsafe relationship....She follows up and explains everything to you with compassion, and offers to be there for you even when I couldn’t financially go forward with the procedure...

How was your experience with Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
Dr. Fischer spent considerable time with me when I had a diagnosis that will make having a family harder. She explained everything in detail, and checked on me via email several times after my visit. I appreciate that she is also doing research that could change the fertility game in the future for all of us.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
Learn about your fertility numbers early. Advocate for your company/insurance to cover these early tests.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
Catha has been the best fertility doctor I have had to date. She took a lengthy amount of time to get to know me, my background, and what I want in terms of a family in the future. She supported me as a single parent of choice while just getting out an unsafe relationship. I have visited several doctors across the country trying to find high quality, low cost care, and she has been the best across the board. She follows up and explains everything to you with compassion, and offers to be there for you even when I couldn’t financially go forward with the procedure.
Describe the protocols Catha Fischer used in your cycles at Spring Fertility New York and their degree of success.
I did the initial assessment but due to cost, I was unable to move forward yet with the egg freezing I medically need due to low AMH and FSH and follicle counts. She said I will likely need 2-3 cycles performed, but cannot without insurance. She has helped write letters and provide information for me to bring to my employer in my fight for coverage.

Strengths: doesn’t feel quite like every other clinic. Has its own look and more feel. People were very welcoming when I came into the office.

Dr. Fischer fully explained the treatments that were available to us, guided us on the probability of conception through IUI vs IVF, and never pushed us towards a specific treatment. (we decided on IVF due to the higher probability that we would conceive...[she] was able to perform both my egg retrieval and embryo transfer. She also performed my last 2 ultrasounds at RMA after I was pregnant
There were only a handful of times that I had to wait for my appointments. I think RMA does a great job of prioritizing the patients who come in regularly for morning monitoring (for blood work and/or ultrasounds) which is great because you have to go so frequently! Most of the doctors were great as well- I did not see my assigned doctor at every visit- I would see the doctor who was performing the ultrasounds that morning
How was your experience with Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
Since my first consultation with Dr. Fischer, which was virtual due to the COVID pandemic, I immediately liked her and felt I could trust her 100%. Her knowledge and compassion were extremely evident. She was very reassuring and she was the first doctor who diagnosed me with PCOS at the age of 34. For most of my adult life, I tried to tell my doctors that I felt that something was "off," but I felt that my doctors never really listened to me and brushed aside my symptoms. Within the first 5 minutes of my first conversation with Dr. Fischer, she was able to diagnose me with PCOS, which was one of the factors of our infertility. It was both reassuring and upsetting for me, and Dr. Fischer displayed so much compassion and gave my husband and me hope that we could conceive with fertility treatments. Dr. Fischer fully explained the treatments that were available to us, guided us on the probability of conception through IUI vs IVF, and never pushed us towards a specific treatment. (we decided on IVF due to the higher probability that we would conceive.) I was also so happy that Dr. Fischer was able to perform both my egg retrieval and embryo transfer. She also performed my last 2 ultrasounds at RMA after I was pregnant, which I was also happy about! I would definitely recommend Dr. Fischer- she is warm, compassionate, funny, and very knowledgeable.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
While RMA tries to help the patient with exploring treatment options and costs involved, make sure you do your own research and contact your insurance company to find out what is covered!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
Dr. Fischer absolutely treated me as a human, but at times, the clinic itself felt like a "baby factory." I have absolutely zero criticisms of Dr. Fischer though! She is wonderful.
Describe the protocols Catha Fischer used in your cycles at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey and their degree of success.
My husband and I decided to pursue IVF rather than try IUI first. The success rate of IVF was much higher for us, and we didn't want to wait any longer! I have PCOS and my husband also has an infertility factor having to do with his sperm (low morphology and motility,) and Dr. Fischer felt that we would be very successful with IVF. I did one cycle of ovarian stimulation injections for IVF. The embryos were biopsied and tested for genetic abnormalities (PGS testing.) Turns out my IVF cycle was very successful- we created 25 embryos and we decided to test 12. Amazingly, 11 of the 12 embryos were viable! The embryos were then frozen, and I had my embryo transfer a little over a month after my egg retrieval. I am currently 12 weeks pregnant!
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Adrienne)
The nurse assigned to me was always prompt with returning my phone calls and calling me to give medication instructions during my cycles. I really can't criticize too much, however, I felt that she didn't always communicate certain things to me. I felt that I had to ask a lot of questions in order to get all of the information I needed. For example, there are certain restrictions you have before and after egg retrieval as well as after the embryo transfer (i.e. what to avoid doing, such as exercising.) I felt that my nurse wasn't fully forthcoming with some of that information, so I researched a lot online, then asked her questions to confirm. At times I felt a little rushed during our calls as well. Also, when I spoke with other nurses that covered for my nurse when she was off, I felt that they spent more time with me on the phone, I didn't feel rushed, and they were more detailed about my treatments, what to expect, side effects, what to avoid, etc. So I think it really depends on which nurse is assigned to you and whether you will have a more positive experience.
Describe your experience with RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
There were only a handful of times that I had to wait for my appointments. I think RMA does a great job of prioritizing the patients who come in regularly for morning monitoring (for blood work and/or ultrasounds) which is great because you have to go so frequently! Most of the doctors were great as well- I did not see my assigned doctor at every visit- I would see the doctor who was performing the ultrasounds that morning. (Dr. Margolis and Dr. Maguire were great!) I only had 2 bad experiences during ultrasounds- one doctor was kind of aggressive during an US during egg stimulation which was very painful, and another nurse practitioner was very insensitive to me when she found a sub-chorionic bump on my first US after I was pregnant, which scared me. There are times when you feel like "just a number," but overall, I had a good experience at RMA.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
The hours for monitoring are very early in the morning, which was fine with me because it worked well with my work schedule. I barely ever had to wait for blood work or ultrasound. I think there were maybe 3-4 times when I had to wait longer than usual.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
I was fortunate that my insurance covered all of the IVF procedures and most of my medications (or I had a small co-pay.) However, we still had out of pocket costs. If you pursue IVF, insurance does not cover embryo biopsy or genetic testing. You also have to pay a fee for each embryo you decide to test (I believe it was $200 per embryo.) You also have to pay out of pocket for cryopreservation, and you have to continue to pay an annual fee to keep them stored. I had a couple of other bills for one of my test procedures and for anesthesia during egg retrieval. In all, we spent a little over $6,000 for IVF.
Describe Catha Fischer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
RMA highly recommends single embryo transfer, which we were 100% fine with.

Dr Fisher was not rigid in her ways. She allowed us to try different avenues such as progesterone suppositories instead of injections even though we were unsuccessful with the suppositories. Dr Fisher also was always open to hear what we had to say based on our own research but she always firmly stated her opinion with an open mind. We also really appreciated her bedside manner.
Even though you have a primary doctor, RMA leverages all their doctor staff for your various appointments so that means that you will likely see your doctor less than 50% of your visits. One positive is that you can potentially schedule your embryo transfer with one of the top doctors who may not be your primary...Some days it would be efficient and other days there were so many people you have to wait a while.

She has an open mind and will be willing to explore options within reason.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
At times RMA treats you like a number given the sheer number of patients they have so it was nice to have that contrasted with Dr Fisher who showed concern and understanding along the way.
Describe the protocols Catha Fischer used in your cycles at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey and their degree of success.
We were fortunate to have several embryos. Instead of getting oil shots, Dr Fisher allowed us to try progesterone suppositories because of my fear of needles. Ultimately the first two transfers failed and with Dr Fisher’s suggestion I tried the oil shots which was successful.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Rhonda)
This part I felt like a number. That said I understand that the nurse is busy. If I recall correctly, I was not given one of the medications so I had to rush to get that in time. Just overall not too much care.

What specific things went wrong at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
One of the prescriptions for medication was missing but ended getting it in time. Separately there were videos on how to prep some of the shots but it would have been better if the nurse walked us through it since there are so many shots.

I had recurrent miscarriages and no one knew why. When we met Dr. Fischer, she provided us with more information than we had received over the course of 2 years...I was diagnosed with Balanced Translocation (BT). She spent about an hour going over the diagnosis...retrieval resulted in 33 eggs, 27 fertilized, 15 Day 5 blasts, and 5 were balanced/normal PGD...I'm currently 20 weeks pregnant with our miracle baby
The clinic [at RMA of New Jersey] itself is extremely well-coordinated, they use modern-day technology to communicate with their patients, and have an astounding turn around times for bloodwork. They work like a well-oiled machine. The staff is simply kind, efficient, and entirely intelligent...Sarah was readily available to us. She was punctual and always called with our daily plans and protocols.
How was your experience with Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
We met Dr. Fischer on our first consultation visit. My husband and I had seen a series of OBGYN's that just didn't know what was wrong with us. I had recurrent miscarriages and no one knew why. When we met Dr. Fischer, she provided us with more information than we had received over the course of 2 years. I won't lie, we left the clinic a bit overwhelmed with the amount of information that was laid on us. She called us back for testing, but I was working full time and felt like it was just too much. The clinic was so understanding of this when I canceled my appointment. I took a month-long break and then decided I was ready for testing. I went into the clinic and had everything drawn up. Dr. Fischer's response came fairly quickly after all the results were in. I was diagnosed with Balanced Translocation (BT). She spent about an hour going over the diagnosis. She waited patiently as I took notes and tried to understand what was going on and what my options were. She offered to call my husband and re-explain everything to him as well since he couldn't be on the call at the same time as me. She offered a couple of different solutions to our diagnosis but it was obvious that we needed to move forward with IVF with PGD testing in order to reduce the risk of having more miscarriages. Dr. Fischer was readily available for us, to prescribe medication as my bloodwork developed, to answer questions as they arose, and put us at realistic ease when things were really looking south. She performed both the retrieval and the transfer. During both procedures, we felt like we were in capable hands. My retrieval resulted in 33 eggs, 27 fertilized, 15 Day 5 blasts, and 5 were balanced/normal PGD. Her medical protocol had worked outstandingly for us. She really has a way of making you feel like you're her most important patient. The best part, I'm currently 20 weeks pregnant with our miracle baby.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
Don't be afraid to ask questions -- she has so much to offer, take advantage of it!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
Dr. Fischer was extremely empathetic as we navigated uncharted territories. When I came to her I had experienced two losses; before even getting to the testing portion I felt extremely overwhelmed coming into a fertility clinic. Dr. Fischer took her time with us, she was extremely patient as we came to terms with our diagnosis. She called and explained everything thoroughly and ensured I understood every aspect of it. She has an extremely calming demeanor that just puts you at ease. I'm not sure how it's possible, but out of her all her patients she truly makes you feel like she knows you well. She remembers details of things you've told her medically and not. She greets you as if she's known you forever. Small things like this made us feel like we were not only in capable hands, but caring ones too.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Sarah Robinson)
Sarah was readily available to us. She was punctual and always called with our daily plans and protocols. She took the time to explain everything to us. She did everything she was supposed to. I will say, my one frustration with her, was that it always felt like I was inconveniencing her with questions. She comes off as mildly annoyed a bit. Not sure if it was personal, or the job. In the end, she always came through, but there was always a tiny bit of snark.
Describe your experience with RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
RMA is one of the best clinics I have ever heard of. I am so blessed to have found them and be a part of their patient community. The clinic itself is extremely well-coordinated, they use modern-day technology to communicate with their patients, and have an astounding turn around times for bloodwork. They work like a well-oiled machine. The staff is simply kind, efficient, and entirely intelligent.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
Monitoring appointments were always every morning from 5:45 AM to 7:30 AM. If you needed to go in over the weekend, the office would then transfer you to Basking Ridge. They were usually very quick, I would be in an out within 30 minutes. I think on two occasions they were quite overwhelmed and it took longer -- closer to an hour. I suspect because those were days coming off of holidays / long weekends. Either way, the entire process itself was very efficient.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
Insurance did not cover anything, everything was out of pocket. It cost us about 30k for one full IVF cycle (including testing, bloodwork, retrieval, PGD testing, and retrieval). It will continue to cost us $1200 every year to keep our embryos on ice, and furthermore when we transfer future embryos.

Dr. Fischer was extremely kind, answered all my questions, scheduled extra phone calls when I wanted to, and was also extremely positive even when we received what I thought was discouraging news. She pointed out reasons for hope and optimism and was encouraging the whole way.... We did the strongest protocol ("maxed out") due to my low AFC and AMH, which meant that I took hcg with Follistim 450. Then I took cetrotide for the trigger shot.
The clinic [RMA of New Jersey] was well organized and clearly thought of the patient when designing the space. The wait room was huge, so even though there was always a lot of people there, you really didn't feel like cattle (as I've heard other clinics feel like) and it's comfortable with reasonable wait times. Everyone was really nice.... My nurse was nice. The only problem was, she had a variable schedule and I was often having to be in contact with other nurses in order to figure things out. So there was a little confusion on who to contact when, but overall it was fine.
How was your experience with Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
I really liked Dr. Fischer as my doctor. She was warm, patient, reassuring, and supportive. The only question I had was whether her lack of experience was going to impact anything (she only recently started practicing). But in terms of bedside manner, she was wonderful.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?

Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
I was doing some of my monitoring visits at a different clinic, which was closer to my home. There were two mornings that I showed up and my orders were not in their system, which meant a lot of phone calls and waiting around to figure it out. One of those times I believe it was the other clinic's fault, but one time the nurse had forgotten to send them over.

Dr. Fischer put me on Gonal F and other injection medications for my egg retrieval...after my egg retrieval I did a genetic screen test on all my embryos, she then froze the rest of the good ones and during my transfer she transferred only one healthy embryo and I am now pregnant!...is a sweetheart, always so kind and positive. I never felt a negative vibe from her...was always speaking to me as if my IVF was going to work, she would always re-assure me that everything will be ok, she said in the end, I will have a beautiful family and she was right!
I also chose to do genetic embryo testing [at RMA of New Jersey] which was not covered by insurance and I paid $5,000.00 out of pocket for that...Everyone at the clinic is amazing. The receptionist girls are great, very friendly, always remember you by your first name. Early monitoring employees are also so nice. You begin to establish a friendly relationship with everyone which is nice. I can't comment on any weaknesses of the clinic. Sometimes the monitoring are quick sometimes it takes longer.

Dr. Fischer felt like more than a doctor and also a friend. She took the time to have multiple calls with us to explain all options and details. Also, when my husband went in for surgery she made sure to stop by and see me in the waiting room and my husband pre-surgery to make us feel like she was on our team and there for us through the entire process...was so warm and honest from our first consultation to our last appointment at RMA before leaving and going back to my regular OBGYN. I felt like I was not only her patient, but a friend and that she was invested in my husband and my dream to start a family. Dr. Fischer is just a wonderful doctor that I completely trusted throughout this entire process and would recommend her to anyone!

She [Dr. Catha Fischer] called me when things got rough but not before then... takes her time and is thorough. There were some times I did not feel we were talking about the same thing but that was fixed. Everything felt very methodical and I sometimes wished it was more personal along the way...There was no further testing of my husband's sperm or efforts to correct the morphology. We ended up with only one normal embryo to use. They did ICSI and PGS testing. Transferred one embryo during a medicated cycle my lining was over 16.
There was a clinical documentation error [at RMA of New Jersey] that delayed our cycle starting and caused undue stress...It is a machine. Everything is done the same for every person and it's not until something goes awry that a protocol is changed or re examined.

Dr Fischer was my third doctor and I wish so badly she had been my first...is knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and wants you to succeed...tried a mid luteal which I now regret...had endo excision surgery...decided to do day 3 embryos...all graded high quality but ultimately the transfers didn’t work
Spring Fertility is a beautiful clinic and they do a lot of little things that make it a good experience....easy to make appointments, they open early and are open on the weekends and never had to wait long...Easy to get a hold of and always willing to help. Even at 5pm on a Sunday.
How was your experience with Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
Dr Fischer was my third doctor and I wish so badly she had been my first. She is knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and wants you to succeed. I was not successful but this does not change my opinion. I’m a tough case and Dr Fischer earned me being successful so I feel bad my numbers go against her stats.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
Don’t hesitate to start treatment
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
Dr. Fischer is incredibly warm and personable and always remembers details.
Describe the protocols Catha Fischer used in your cycles at Spring Fertility New York and their degree of success.
We tried a mid luteal which I now regret. It works for many but didn’t for me. I then had endo excision surgery and we tried one more time. We used zymot and co culture. Seemed to be a fantastic retrieval but together we had decided to do day 3 embryos. I got the most I had ever gotten and all graded high quality but ultimately the transfers didn’t work.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Spring Fertility New York.
The only mixup I had was not a huge deal. They said I wasn’t immune to rubella so without looking at my results I went and got the vaccination even though I thought it was weird since two years prior I had tested immune. Months later I did look at the test, and I had tested immune. So not sure where the mix up happened.

Dr. Fischer is one of the most brilliant and compassionate doctors I have ever worked with. She has a completely intuitive understanding of reproductive hormones and is incredibly motivated to achieve good outcomes for her patients, in line with their goals. She always knew every detail of my past and present cycles and never failed to offer new ideas and approaches when we faced disappointing results. She has the perfect disposition of cautious optimism that is very well-suited to an REI specialist.
Maryellen [nurse] was an incredible asset to our care at RMANJ. She is extremely knowledgable and compassionate and always did everything she could to help facilitate our care without delays, barriers, or inconveniences. She has been truly wonderful to work with...I have found RMANJ to be extremely organized and efficient. Wait times for appointments are very reasonable and the care from all personnel has been outstanding. I would strongly recommend care here to anyone dealing with infertility.

Dr. Catha always walked into the exam room with enthusiasm and a smile...is clear, thorough, and candid (in the best way possible)...able to see Dr. Catha at every visit, and she performed my egg retrieval and my FET...prescribed a natural FET protocol for me, which involved progesterone pills and one trigger shot
Strengths [of Spring Fertility New York] Branding and cleanliness of the facilities. Easy to navigate website...Friendly and kind staff. Efficient appointments...Weaknesses...helping patients order refills for prescriptions...refills are up to the patient to order through the partner pharmcy.
How was your experience with Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
Dr. Catha always walked into the exam room with enthusiasm and a smile. After my first consultation with her, I knew I wanted her to be my fertility doctor. She is clear, thorough, and candid (in the best way possible). While I always entered every meeting a bit nervous to hear the outcomes, Dr. Catha made me feel at ease after I left the clinic. She is honest about the current status of your treatment and about future outcomes, which is super important during fertility treatment. Luckily, I was able to see Dr. Catha at every visit, and she performed my egg retrieval and my FET.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
This advice is moreso for anyone seeking fertility treatment in general. Before walking into my initial consult, I honestly didn't know much about fertility treatments and tests (Chlomid, IUI, IVF, HSG, Saline Sonogram, etc). While Catha took the time to explain our options, pros and cons, and timelines associated with each option, it's a lot to take in at the first meeting if you're not fully aware of them at all. I would advice prospective patients do a little research on their own to understand the options at a high level so that you don't walk into the consult blindly!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
Dr. Catha and everyone on her medical team never treated me just like any other patient. They thoroughly reviewed my history, results, and next steps before communicating them to me in a clear and optimistic way. Everyone was so kind during the process. Going through infertility is tough as is, but having an empathetic patient-oriented team helped me feel at ease through out the whole cycle.
Describe the protocols Catha Fischer used in your cycles at Spring Fertility New York and their degree of success.
After our initial consult, we knew we wanted to pursue IVF because it statistically has the highest chance of success, even though it is the most invasive. Following our consult, we informed Spring that we'd like to proceed right away. Even though we struggled to get pregnant on our own, we didn't have any serious infertility diagnosis. It ultimately came down to ovulation timing a mild case of PCOS. Dr. Fisher wasn't worried and assured us that due to my age, health, and follicle count that we should have a high chance of success with one cycle. We started with an HSG to confirm my tubes were clear. From there, I started the IVF injections after my menstrual cycle arrived. I did Gonal-F, Menopur, and Cetrotide (mid-way through) injections for about 12 days, and triggered with Lupron. Following any bloodwork at the clinic, Spring immediately updated me with dosage amount prior to my next injection. We had a successful egg retrieval. Following PGT-A testing, we ended up with 10 blasts. More than I was expecting! My FET was about a month and a half following egg retrieval. The waiting period between retrieval and FET is long, but necessary for your body to recover and for you to prepare your uterine lining. Before transfer, I did a saline sonogram to ensure my uterine lining was normal. Dr. Fisher prescribed a natural FET protocol for me, which involved progesterone pills and one trigger shot. After the retrieval, I didn't have to take any supplemental medication. After a few weeks of nerve-wracking waiting, two blood draws and ultrasounds later, we heard a heartbeat :)
Describe your experience with your nurse at Spring Fertility New York. (Assigned nurse: Maggie (and Samantha when Maggie was out))
I first met with Alyssa to schedule my appointments and discuss timeline. Following that, I primarily communicated with Maggie (my IVF nurse coordinator) and on occasion, Samantha, who covered for Maggie. Maggie always followed up with me on the same day following my appointments with next steps. Communication from Spring would come as a phone call or as a message in the portal. If Spring wanted to communicate results, I usually got those in the form of a call, which I appreciate. For example, following egg retrieval and PGT-A test results, they called me to discuss results. It's always helpful to hear a human on the other end of the line! With regards to in person staff... The front desk staff at the NYC location are super friendly! After just a few appointments, they knew me my name and always greeted me with a smile. The nurses that help out at your appointments are great. I usually dread getting my blood drawn, but the nurses at Spring are gentle!
Describe your experience with Spring Fertility New York.
Strengths: Branding and cleanliness of the facilities. Easy to navigate website for those shopping around for clinics. Friendly and kind staff. Efficient appointments and convenient location. Weaknesses: I am not sure how other clinics work, but the one thing I think Spring can do better with is helping patients order refills for prescriptions. Spring set up my initial prescriptions for my injections, but refills are up to the patient to order through the partner pharmcy. You could always ask the nurse to help you calculate, but they do not place orders for you. You have to make sure that you order the right amount based on your updated protocol. This means you have to do some math and guesses as to how long your cycle might be and how many refills you may need. I think this is important to consider, especially if you're paying fully out of pocket for medication. Every dollar counts!
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Spring Fertility New York.
Monitoring appointments are usually in the morning. The clinic can be quite crowded during this time. Spring is usually pretty efficient at getting you in and out of there within 15 minutes.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York.
Luckily, we had Progyny insurance. Our out of pocket costs will be around $3,000. For full cost of treatment, I'd advise you talk to Spring about your specific case!
What specific things went wrong at Spring Fertility New York?
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Spring Fertility New York.
In between the waiting period between the egg retrieval and FET, you may be prescribed birth control, which I was. After 10 or so days of birth control, you stop and wait until you get your period. Spring mentioned to me that I should message them "after my first full flow". However, after I stopped BC, I only ever spotted and never experienced a full flow period like I typically do in a normal cycle. I messaged Spring to ask if this was normal, but was told to keep waiting until my first full flow. When I saw Dr. Fisher for my saline sonogram, she said BC makes your period weird so light spotting is totally normal. This was probably just a minor misunderstanding/miscommunication between the nurses and the doctor, so I am glad Dr. Fisher was able to assure me that I was ready to start the FET protocol.

For my second egg stimulation, Dr. Fischer changed the dose of Follistim which resulted in a significant higher number of eggs and consequently more fertilized eggs. For my second egg transfer, Dr. Fischer decided to do a synthetic cycle, opposed to a natural cycle, where she could control my ovulation period and resulted in my current pregnancy...I felt like I was the only patient she was treating, even though I new I was not. It felt like we developed a friendship during the treatment because of her incredible bedside manner. Dr. Fischer is kind, acknowledged and explain the process over and over again if needed. She was always calling and checking on us to see if we were okay. Dr. Fischer is by far the most caring doctor I've ever had.
She [nurse at RMA of New Jersey] was always only a phone call away. Maryellen is experienced, caring and practical...Morning monitoring was always very efficient. At RMA the monitoring hours were between 6am-7:30am, but if something had to be changed they would accommodate something for me...My only complain is that you can't call the front desk directly. RMA has a call system that transfers you to whom you need to speak with. During the weekend, if you need to speak with a nurse, you have to call the call center, try to explain your concerns to a non medical person, leave a message and the nurse would call you back. It
How was your experience with Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
From our first visit, Dr. Fischer was very supportive and caring. She listened to all our issues and concerns and answered every single question we had. Dr. Fischer then proposed a treatment route and made sure we understood and were on board with it. We always felt that she had our best interest in mind, knowing that this is a very expensive treatment and she always offered the best alternative to us. She understands the stress and rollercoaster of emotions of going under fertility treatments. Though, to me the process was definitely easier just knowing that Dr. Fisher was there for us. Dr. Fischer also explained the risks of each decision and cautioned us about all the outcomes. We went to her office a few times before starting the treatment and she was always very patient and caring towards us, she would always call back when we needed to ask some specific questions. We were under her care for about two years, and I’m finally 14 weeks pregnant through IVF. We certainly wouldn’t be able to go through all the process if it wasn’t for Dr. Fisher personalized care and expertise. We still have one embryo left at the clinic and I couldn’t imagine going through all the process again without Dr. Fisher.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
Don't be afraid of asking any questions you have regarding the treatment and all the little details, no matter how simplistic you might think your questions are. Dr. Fisher is there to help you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?

Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Maryellen Matthews, RN)
Maryellen Matthews was the best! She was always only a phone call away. Maryellen is experienced, caring and practical. She was always clear with the doctor's instructions and aways helped me with the medications, for instance, where to buy the medication with different pharmacies to get a better price, and she also instructed me how to take the meds and when to take them. She would answer the same questions a thousand times if I needed without hesitation.
Describe your experience with RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
RMA in Basking Ridge is amazing, it felt like home during my two years of treatment there. The front desk were always very helpful and kind, the nurses where very skillful and caring, the exam rooms were always clean, very equipped and the ultrasound machines were all new. RMA Basking ridge has an incredible infrastructure and that gave us peace of mind giving us confidence during the procedures. RMA Basking Ridge has a great system when you go for the morning monitoring, which can get very busy. There's always a nurse in the clinic if you need as well. My only complain is that you can't call the front desk directly. RMA has a call system that transfers you to whom you need to speak with. During the weekend, if you need to speak with a nurse, you have to call the call center, try to explain your concerns to a non medical person, leave a message and the nurse would call you back. It is all very efficient, and I understand that in order to control volume they have to have a centralized system. But I wish I could also had the option to talk to the front desk especially if I had dealt with someone there with a specific issue. I also had some issues with the financial department. In the beginning we were never completely sure how much certain procedures would cost us, it wasn't as clear to us. I removed myself completely from the financial issues because I couldn't deal with my financial coordinator, I passed that ball to my husband who has a better understanding of insurance since he works with insurance.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
Morning monitoring was always very efficient. At RMA the monitoring hours were between 6am-7:30am, but if something had to be changed they would accommodate something for me. At times, morning monitoring could get very busy, but I never had to wait more than 15 minutes to be seen.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
Fertility treatment is not cheap, but we were confident we were under the best care we could get and that justified all the cost. We had two IUI and two IVF round, that all cost us around $65,000.00 including medication.
Describe Catha Fischer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
Dr. Fischer had my health as a priority, she was not concerned about numbers. She decided to transfer one embryo to avoid preterm labor and other complications and I think that was the best call.

I have a very complicated medial history and am extremely high risk to carry my own child. Dr. Fischer advocated for me, did her own research, spoke to my other doctors and made it possible for my husband and I to complete a second IVF cycle resulting in a healthy pregnancy with our second son...Don't expect to interact with her outside of the initial consultation but be confident she is making all the decisions behind the scenes
I thought the clinic [at RMA of New Jersey] was great. There was sometimes a back up, especially on the weekends for ultrasound, but never more than 30min.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
I had my 8 week ultrasound moved from a Friday to a Thursday by the nurse but when I arrived, they still had my orders in the system for Friday. I had to wait for them to consult with the doctor/nurse to verify I was supposed to be seen on the Thursday. It all worked out.

She [Dr. Catha Fischer] will give you hope but is also realistic about the chances of success for each individual and their specific situation. She is very receptive to any questions and concerns...One FET using progesterone injections and the second (successful) natural cycle with progesterone suppositories...was so kind and knowledgeable about the entire process. She encouraged me and gave me hope that this would work for me and helped me feel that I was not “broken”...was personable and friendly. She explained everything clearly and was willing to answer and clarify any and all questions. During cycles, Dr. Fischer checked in on how I was doing and feeling and always made herself available to speak to me personally if I was concerned. She helped me stay positive with her positive energy and determination to make this work. She is truly amazing and would not hesitate to recommend her to someone seeking fertility options!
My nurse [at MRA of New Jersey] called daily with results and protocols. She was knowledgeable about procedures and protocol, however did not instill much hope in the process as I went through. She did not coddle or come off warm and understanding which was difficult for me, especially when I was losing hope...I wished I could have more contact with my direct doctor but I understand that can be difficult and she was available when I requested to speak with her or I happened to come on a day she worked monitoring hours.

Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Rhonda Minot)
My nurse called daily with results and protocols. She was knowledgeable about procedures and protocol, however did not instill much hope in the process as I went through. She did not coddle or come off warm and understanding which was difficult for me, especially when I was losing hope. I felt as though when I asked questions or called back I was being annoying even though she said I wasn’t. I felt anxious when I had questions for the type of response or tone I would receive and eventually avoided answering calls so I could just hear my protocols on voicemail and speak to Dr. Fischer instead who was extremely positive and encouraging throughout this difficult process.
Describe your experience with RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey.
RMA seems to have lots of success and a good understanding of infertility and treatment options. I was happy with the process (as much as one can be going through infertility). I wished I could have more contact with my direct doctor but I understand that can be difficult and she was available when I requested to speak with her or I happened to come on a day she worked monitoring hours.

Dr. Fischer's standard is single embryo transfer unless certain circumstances are better suited to multiple...never pushed us towards a treatment and constantly reminded us that it was our decision to make. She provided all possible scenarios, treatment options, and gave her best advice and medical opinion each step of the way...If there were hesitations to make a decision, Dr. Fischer called us to talk everything through until we felt confident in the next steps. I liked that she didn't put my body through more than necessary with her medication plan and transfer.
We loved our experience at RMA in Basking Ridge! the whole staff was knowledgeable, organized, and runs like a well oiled machine. I never waited more than 30 minutes during morning monitoring. Finance was great with handling all claims and having us understand our benefits prior to treatments...Efficient, well-oiled machine. I didn't feel like it was a cattle call...The earlier you got there the better and sometimes I was in and out in 20 minutes for BW & US.
How was your experience with Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better doctor for this journey! We always felt fully informed and that she had our best interests in mind. If there were hesitations to make a decision, Dr. Fischer called us to talk everything through until we felt confident in the next steps. I liked that she didn't put my body through more than necessary with her medication plan and transfer.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
Definitely book an appointment with her! She may be a newer doctor but she's extremely knowledgeable with an array of fertility options and has great communication skills to make all parties feel comfortable and informed but any treatments performed.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Catha Fischer at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey?
Dr. Fischer never pushed us towards a treatment and constantly reminded us that it was our decision to make. She provided all possible scenarios, treatment options, and gave her best advice and medical opinion each step of the way.
Describe the protocols Catha Fischer used in your cycles at RMA of Basking Ridge, New Jersey and their degree of success.
Since I didn't have any hormone issues, Dr. Fischer did a moderate medicine protocol for the egg retrieval and found the perfect balance of quality and quantity. We had 13 eggs and were left with 5 embryos frozen. For the transfer, she decided not to put my body through more than necessary and went with a natural transfer. This followed my body's natural cycle. It can be frustrating when your body takes longer than expected to ovulate following a retrieval but I'm glad we did that because all I took was a trigger shot followed by progesterone suppositories. That transfer took and currently 14 weeks pregnant!

I didn’t have much hope. Dr fischer did an hour consult w me. Went over what had happened in the past, and came up w a new plan. She gave honest opinions on treatments and never gave false promises but definitely gave me the ability to want to try one more time. She was at every visit, she explained everything to me...Dr Fischer gave my husband and I a son and my daughter a sibling.
Spring is full of great communicators. I never had to worry about next steps or what was coming. They took care of everything and made sure to tell me all of the details. When I had questions they were always answered within 24hrs but usually by close of business. I always had total faith that things were being taken care of...I recommend Dr Fischer to everyone who needs hope. Don’t waste your time and money going other places. Just go to Spring.
How was your experience with Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
I came to Dr Fischer somewhat broken. I had had multiple failures over the course of 2 years at the “best and “most prominent “ fertility clinics across the country . I didn’t have much hope. Dr fischer did an hour consult w me. Went over what had happened in the past, and came up w a new plan. She gave honest opinions on treatments and never gave false promises but definitely gave me the ability to want to try one more time. She was at every visit, she explained everything to me, and I seriously felt like her team were my best friends while I was in treatment. I miss them! I’m looking at my baby boy right now. Dr Fischer gave my husband and I a son and my daughter a sibling. We have two more boys on ice. There are no words to describe the gift that she has given us. I recommend Dr Fischer to everyone who needs hope. Don’t waste your time and money going other places. Just go to Spring.
