You don't see him [Dr. Grifo] often during your treatment, but he's always happy to get on the phone with you to answer any questions. Thoughtful, informed, and open to collaboration (we tried a med recommendation I'd found in a recent study for PCOS patients that his team hadn't done before: it worked to get me to ovulate but unfortunately did not result in pregnancy.)... Tried clomid + letrozole together for IUI cycle which first time resulted in dominant follicle
Strengths [of RMA NY]: talented team, ease in protocol. Weakness: all communication is mostly via phone, vs results + instruction via e-mail, sometimes harder to get everything straight. Biggest con is far east side location. But team is overall super helpful. Generally quick turnaround for monitoring, though I've waited there once up to an hour.... IUI not covered: $2K. Monitoring and visits covered by insurance.

Dr Grifo is a very straight forward, compassionate and efficient doctor. He is open to questions, and will explain the procedures. He doesn't waist time but will leave you time to process your options and the emotional components involved...I had 2 retrievals, 2 transfers and I now have 2 children...thanks doctor Grifo for his eSET approach to keep a safe pregnancy but also a gentle "fourth trimester".
The [NYU Langone Fertility] center felt exactly the contrary of an industry. I often saw doctor Grifo, all the doctors and nurses knew me, knew my name and my fertility journey, and all were very helpful and compassionate...The clinic is clean, friendly and comfortable. The organization is well functioning. It is easy to access in Manhattan and part of a major hospital (NYU). The billing department could be their weakness.

IVF, day 5 embryo PGD/PGS and transfer of a frozen single embryo. For each retrieval (11 eggs at 38 years old and 14 eggs at 40 years old) there was each time only 1 chromosomally normal embryo. I had 2 retrievals, 2 transfers and I now have 2 children.
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Fertility Center (Prelude Network Clinic). (Assigned nurse: Maribel Feliciano)
The coordinator and nurses were really good. The follow-up during the treatment was excellent, and I never felt I didn't know what I was doing or supposed to do. All instructions were very clear and nurses were easy to reach.

Dr. Grifo followed a medium aggressive drug plan for me. I do not recall the exact protocol, but I did not respond as expected and only ended up having one ovary really respond and 3 eggs retrieved. Luckily, we had one healthy blastocyst that resulted in a healthy pregnancy.

I very much agreed with Dr. Grifo's approach of only implanting one embryo and doing genetic testing. He stressed the importance of having a healthy pregnancy - considering the risks to the mother, instead of just focusing on getting pregnant and risking multiples.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at NYU Langone Fertility Center (Prelude Network Clinic).
The nursing staff is very efficient and nice. They generally got me in and out quickly in the mornings and had a good bedside manner. If I had a question, I generally got a timely call back. The one thing I would say is that the practice is very busy, so sometimes you have to be a little aggressive to make sure you get a call back or get taken care of quickly. However, I never felt like they weren't trying to give me a good experience. It's just hard with so many patients. The quality of the care was always great though.

My workup was paid for by insurance. My IUI was supposed to be covered by insurance but the insurance said my numbers were low, and they refused to cover IUI without drugs, so I paid for it myself rather than use drugs I didn't think I needed. I got pregnant on the first try. :)

[Dr. Jamie] Grifo is one of very few doctors who doesn't talk down to his patients, but instead equips them with the information they need to decide on a course of action. I really appreciate that! I suspect this is partly because he is *not* insecure and because he is well-informed (partly due to undertaking research himself).
[NYU Fertility's] Strengths: extremely well-organized, with cutting-edge knowledge of procedures and expertise. Weaknesses: Sometimes it can be hard to get in touch of nurses by phone....Grifo is a straight-forward communicator, meeting with my husband and I a few times to talk about options and setting up a treatment plan. I felt he was doing evidence-based (rather than anecdote-based) medicine, and I got great results.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at NYU Langone Fertility Center (Prelude Network Clinic).
There is a team of people you deal with. I found them all very nice in person. My one complaint is that they could be difficult to reach by phone. My calls, even during business hours to the nursing staff, often went to the answering service. If you have a busy schedule, it can be easy to miss the call they place back resulting in a lot of frustrating phone tag.

Unexplained fertility on our part, so we tried 4 IUI's (1 natural, 3 with clomid) which all failed....Dr. Grifo is a highly professional, honest and caring doctor, who doesn't try to 'sell' you on any fertility services. In the several meetings I have had with him, he has always been very frank yet warm, ready to share with us data from his years of research and work, and also understand how that understanding should be applied to us.
Orientation session [at NYU] that you must attend is very informative. Billing is straightforward for the most part, however those on the staff who are responsible for processing pre-authorizations of insurance are not the most responsive always -- you need to be persistent at times to get the information you need....The costs quickly add up; estimate ~$25-30K for first cycle (including PGS, meds, anaesthesia), that doesn't include the $4K per transfer after the initial.

Unexplained fertility on our part, so we tried 4 IUI's (1 natural, 3 with clomid) which all failed. This time around we are doing our first IVF with frozen transfer, and I was put on follistim, menopur and cetrotide with lupron trigger. I was responding very well to the medications (estradiol to ~5,000), so the dosage was taken down over the stimulation period.

The first meeting with him was very personal...He had his own history with infertility that helped him connect
Well oiled machine. First come, first served. Between the hours of 7am-9am, cycled you through. [Nurses were] Very kind but wish that they would call you prior to 12pm- sometimes you had to wait for results until 4/5pm.
How was your experience with James Grifo at NYU Langone Fertility Center (Prelude Network Clinic)?
He was very personable and always was around to schedule a call if we had questions. I do think it's important to always read up and be on top of your own care. My thyroid kept spiking and I felt I needed to be on top of it bec no one else was. This may or may not have contributed to infertility as it wasn't that high (3-4 max), but I had read that fertility doctors did need to see it below 2.5 in order for treatment to be effective. So that's my only complaint... But I truly think he is the best.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of James Grifo at NYU Langone Fertility Center (Prelude Network Clinic)?
Always do your own research and be aware of the right questions to ask.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with James Grifo at NYU Langone Fertility Center (Prelude Network Clinic)?

He [Dr. James Grifo] and his staff were personable... knowledgable, straight forward, reliable and honest. He adjusted treatments in response to results. He and the other physicians in the group were well coordinated, so I never felt as if there was a lapse in care if he was out of the office on the day of my visit...
[NYU is] well coordinated...Psychologist who evaluates prior to IVF, etc was excellent. Secretaries are efficient and responsive. One thing I do not like is the new answering system that they have created, although efficient it is impersonal...[nurses are] helpful...I was mistakingly removed from the egg donor list by one of the nurses...I went first thing in the morning. Hours were convenient. Very efficient, was able to always leave clinic and be on time for work. It is a first come first served process so getting there before the doors open is recommended

We were listened to and treated with respect [by Dr Grifo] - and it was obvious he loved helping people create families. He shared things about his own life as well...We got the results we wanted and were always treated compassionately. I had had a previous bad experience with an HST test and he redid it in a much better way and made me feel like it was the other doctor's fault and not mine. At a time when I felt very vulnerable that my body wasn't doing what it was supposed to do, he never made me feel like it was my fault and he always made me feel like we had options...
Very efficient and professional [at NYU - NY - 1st Ave] - checkin with iPads, quick and easy - never a long wait. Staff helpful and friendly...Competent and quick to answer questions. Everyone always friendly, even early in the morning when I usually went in...Be prepared for a wait to get an appointment but once you're in, it's all good...

Strengths: [Dr. Grifo] was real and honest and encouraged us to 'stir the pot' with the donor eggs which we really liked. Weakness: he was speaking at an event the day of my embryo transfer so he didn't perform the day of the big event, which made me upset.
The entire [NYU] practice was great...I called NYU and they talked us through options and put us at the top of the list since we were off it for about 6 months that we thought we had a donor.
How was your experience with James Grifo at NYU Langone Fertility Center (Prelude Network Clinic)?
Strengths: he was real and honest and encouraged us to 'stir the pot' with the donor eggs which we really liked. He showed us pictures of his IVF children and made us feel comfortable with the procedures. Weakness: he was speaking at an event the day of my embryo transfer so he didn't perform the day of the big event, which made me upset. However, like the entire process, I just went with the flow and now have two beautiful and healthy twin girls who I love and adore with all my heart.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of James Grifo at NYU Langone Fertility Center (Prelude Network Clinic)?
Request him to be present at the transfer if important to you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with James Grifo at NYU Langone Fertility Center (Prelude Network Clinic)?
The entire practice was great. While on the wait-list for a donor, they called me to tell me they typically don't refer patients to agencies, but one had several girls who fit my profile so we ended up using this agency. Ended up 2 girls backed down - 1 2 weeks before she was set to come for the procedure. It was emotional to say the least. I called NYU and they talked us through options and put us at the top of the list since we were off it for about 6 months that we thought we had a donor. The entire practice treated us very kindly and like we were humans throughout this emotional stage.

Retrieval: I began with Gonal F and Menopur, and when the day approaches he prescribed one more medichine to prevent me from ovulating too soon. Followed by HCG trigger shot. He recommended taking Selenium supplement, and eat more walnuts and 70g protein a day.

It didn’t matter how busy he was, he made sure to answer all my questions and not rush my appointments... was an absolute genius in his field. Not only was he brilliant and ready to make changes so that I could achieve the best possible results, he was also kind, compassionate and caring. He knew how nervous I was and always made sure to calm me down and be the positivity that I needed.
They are very busy [at NYU] , but the whole process runs smoothly. You will get the best treatment and that is what is most important...I recommend getting to early morning monitoring before 8:55am because otherwise you will have a wait. If you have a question, ask. A nurse will always get right back to you. They really have your best interest at heart. This is a hard process but they are all there to help you every step of the way.
