Dr. Flisser is a wonderful fertility doctor. He has a warm bedside manner and is very knowledgeable. His explanations were always very evidence-based which I appreciated as a physician myself. He is compassionate and empathetic, but also straightforward and realistic. For me, this is an ideal combination. I came to Dr. Flisser after multiple failed treatments at other clinics. From our very first visit, he was reassuring and thorough. I am so grateful for Dr. Flisser’s experience, knowledge and kindness.
RMA is a well-oiled machine. They are a busy office but there is a lot of support staff.

They always returned my calls and emails in a promptly manner...Dr. Flisser was always available to speak with me and listen to my questions and concerns.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at RMA of New York.
I didn’t get to know the nurses very well because I went for most of my monitoring appointments at the Long Island office, which is technically a separate clinic. However Dr. Flisser’s nurses always called and explained my results and instructions clearly. They always returned my calls and emails in a promptly manner.

Dr Flisser is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. He answered all my questions with easy and simple explanations rather than making me feel like I didn’t know what was going on or that I was asking silly questions. He was always personable and able to reach if I needed anything outside of our visits...I did this process for genetic testing so choosing to do a single embryo transfer once all of the basic and specific testing was done made the most sense...
[at RMA of New York] I always felt that my questions were fully answered and I always knew I could call with any other questions after my visits...It took longer than expected to get clearance to have all of my records sent to my OBGYN.

He answered all my questions with easy and simple explanations rather than making me feel like I didn’t know what was going on or that I was asking silly questions.

We were glad to have Dr. Flisser as our doctor throughout the process. We were able to see him for almost all monitoring appointments, except for two. He asked how I was feeling each time. He was direct and to-the-point, but also compassionate. We knew these appointments would be very different from OB appointments throughout pregnancy, so they are understandably shorter and more concise, but it was just what we needed to help us through this process.
In person, all of the nurses [at RMA of NY] were lovely, helpful, and patient. Over the phone, a few were less informative and patient at times. But overall, very good...Many people refer to it as a factory, and it really can feel like that at "peak" hours, but honestly, it's a very well-run system. The facilities are very nice and clean. Everyone works very well together to keep things flowing smoothly. I would absolutely come back again if I need to.

He [Dr. Flisser] went over everything in detail and made the process of IVF seem very simple. He was very matter of fact and explained the reasoning behind everything...He described what my options were and what the success rate of each of these options were. He was not at all pushy and instead just gave me the statistics and let me decide what was best. During the rest of the process I didn’t really see him much, but was assured that he was the one making the decisions.
Everything [at RMA of New York] ran very smoothly and everyone sensed to be on the same page. During monitoring hours was a bit of a factory like feel, they try to get you in and out as quickly as possible. I didn’t love feeling rushed like that but I also had a job to get to and realize that this was the most efficient way to see patients for them...
How was your experience with Eric Flisser at RMA of New York?
He went over everything in detail and made the process of IVF seem very simple. He was very matter of fact and explained the reasoning behind everything. When I saw him I already did 4 cycles with letrazole, one of which was a miscarriage with a previous doctor. He described what my options were and what the success rate of each of these options were. He was not at all pushy and instead just gave me the statistics and let me decide what was best. During the rest of the process I didn’t really see him much, but was assured that he was the one making the decisions.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eric Flisser at RMA of New York?
Ask a lot of questions
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New York.
The called every week after I got bloodwork to let me know if any changes needed to be made. They usually sent me an email which was very organized.

Dr Flisser was extremely attentive and straight forward from the first consultation. He gave us so much insight on the options available to us and any questions my husband and I had were answered thoroughly in a way for us to understand each processes. His explanations were always clear and all my interactions with him have always been of a kind and warm demeanor...
Their [RMA of NY] hours were very flexible, so it never interferes with work, the staff were kind. It was very straight forward when you came in for blood work etc, they are very fast paced, so your in and out pretty quickly, which I can see how people can find negative...She [nurse] was attentive, answered questions in a timely manner and was always compassionate and caring.
How was your experience with Eric Flisser at RMA of New York?
I have a beautiful and healthy 1 year old daughter thanks to Dr. Flisser and his colleagues at RMA. My review is long overdue and I felt compelled to write this review as I have friends and family that are going through their own battles in infertility and I feel it’s so important to shine light to the incredibly gifted and compassionate doctors that have made the dreams of families like mines comes true. Dr Flisser was extremely attentive and straight forward from the first consultation. He gave us so much insight on the options available to us and any questions my husband and I had were answered thoroughly in a way for us to understand each processes. His explanations were always clear and all my interactions with him have always been of a kind and warm demeanor. Although my egg retrievals and transfer were not done by him - his colleagues showed the same professionalism and compassion. And when things didn’t go as planned in our first cycle, he was hopeful, honest, and never pushy about how to proceed with the next steps. We ended up having a successful 2nd cycle and I am forever grateful for being under his care in helping us achieve the ultimate gift. And for this I without any hesitation would recommend to any family.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eric Flisser at RMA of New York?
To ask questions and allow Dr Flisser to lay out the options available to you beforehand. He does a great job explaining the procedures and testing so you’re not confused during process which can get overwhelming.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Eric Flisser at RMA of New York?
Dr Flisser was warm, understanding, and informative in every appointment and interaction. His demeanor is calm and never pushy, which kept me at ease.
Describe the protocols Eric Flisser used in your cycles at RMA of New York and their degree of success.
We did PGS testing our first round which ended up being a heartache, but blessing in disguise as we ended up testing 5 embryos that all ended up being abnormal. Although this was sad to hear it, we avoided a lot of heartache as they would have resulted in unsuccessful pregnancies if they were transferred. We waited 3 months and opted for a fresh transfer with no testing and was successful and our daughter was conceived.
