Dr Blakemore was compassionate, empathetic and kind. Even though she sees so many patients, she makes you feel like your specific situation and family building goals really matter...I am so grateful for Dr Blakemore. It has been a long process but my husband and I have consistently felt like Dr Blakemore was in our corner. When insurance declined to cover my second egg retrieval she with no hesitation wrote a letter on my behalf. Having that advocacy - even though we didn’t get the outcome we wanted was huge.
Overall i’ve had a very positive experience with NYU. Positives include good experience with nurses & staff. locations of facilities (which were convenient for me),the new facility being super nice/clean and overall level of care. Cons include sometimes it being hard to get in touch with someone to answer questions (calling main line & having to leave a message & wait for callback. with so many patients - i get this is probably the easiest way!) but someone always did call back & get my questions answered! The main con is no consistent portal / system.
How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
I am so grateful for Dr Blakemore. It has been a long process but my husband and I have consistently felt like Dr Blakemore was in our corner. When insurance declined to cover my second egg retrieval she with no hesitation wrote a letter on my behalf. Having that advocacy - even though we didn’t get the outcome we wanted was huge. After the first embryo transfer failed it was really disheartening and she took time to talk to us on the weekend, listen to all our questions & encourage us. I felt confident in her recommendations & reassured by her hopefulness & positivity. She expresses frequently how much she loves her job & it’s very evident every time you interact with her.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
From the get go Dr Blakemore was compassionate, empathetic and kind. Even though she sees so many patients, she makes you feel like your specific situation and family building goals really matter.
Describe the protocols Jennifer Blakemore used in your cycles at NYU Langone Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I started with IUI as i felt most comfortable doing less interventions first. Dr Blakemore was supportive of this and i did 3 medicated IUI cycles (all with Clomid) - which were not successful. that made me feel more comfortable / ready to start the IVF process. I did two medicated egg retrievals (a few months apart). I took Follistim, Menopur, Ovidrel, Lupron and Ganirelex for each.) My egg retrievals met or exceeded the expectations Dr Blakemore outlined for us and we ended up with several genetically normal embryos. I was very glad i did 2 retrievals based on my family building goals. I did 2 embryo transfers back to back. The first was just progesterone & estradiol and was unsuccessful. The second transfer added an immune protocol (steroid / baby aspirin / claritin / famotodine ) and resulted in pregnancy!
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
all nurses and staff i interacted with during bloodwork / ultrasounds / IUIs / retrieval and transfers were all great! no complaints there. The only complain is the original care coordinator assigned during the earlier stages of treatment was very hard to get in touch with and made a mistake with scheduling that almost negatively impacted by cycle. thankfully that person was an outlier and all other staff i engaged with was great.

The main con is no consistent portal / system. There is an app that is supposed to house appointments & records but none of my appts are ever logged there and records are sometimes there and other times sent through a different portal. there’s maybe 3 different portals i have to log into & it’s just annoying to not have everything in 1 single place. Additionally i wish i would have been sent a detailed description of all my medications / prescriptions. it wasn’t always provided very clearly - sometimes by phone or written on paper - again, something that would have been nice to have clearly outlined in a portal (they did do this for some medications but it didn’t seem like it was included everything or was hard to read).
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
All in all monitoring appointments were very straightforward / easy and little wait time. There was maybe twice over (the course of 6+ months of procedures) where i waited more than 30 minutes.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
across multiple rounds of IUI, 2 egg retrievals and 2 transfers + all medications costs have been around $35K. The largest cost being the second egg retrieval which was not covered by insurance followed by cost of medications.
What specific things went wrong at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
  • Lost appointments
Describe the specific things that went wrong at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
i had a care coordinator who was hard to get in touch with and made it stressful at start of a cycle when i needed to schedule a monitoring appointment & get meds called in and didn’t hear back in a timely manner. There was additional miscommunication about scheduling a retrieval and being told i was good for a certain window and then it not being fully confirmed. it was frustrating to feel like i had to put in extra effort to track down people & answers to feel like i was confident in certain things being scheduled or called in.

She [Dr. Blakemore] also discusses your history and what specific testing she has planned. She clearly explains all test results and all treatment options. Once we decided to move forward with egg retrieval and embryo implantation, Dr. Blakemore was there every step of the way, guiding us through this emotional and arduous process. When there were setbacks, Dr. Blakemore was straightforward about results while always remaining positive and discussing next steps. She also provided extensive emotional support at each appointment, and even between. She called before and after each procedure to check in and answered emails with questions at all times of the day/night.
NYU Fertility is clearly a very busy clinic, but is exceptionally run. I never had to wait long for an appointment or for morning monitoring and results were always communicated to me the same day by one of Dr. Blakemore's nurses. The nurse would personally call, explain testing results, and clearly discuss plans going forward...During that window, a patient would schedule a specific time to arrive for monitoring. Monitoring consisted of bloodwork and then typically an ultrasound (many times done by Dr. Blakemore herself during office days). I was typically in and out in 30 minutes.
How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Blakemore. She is clearly passionate about her work, both intellectually and emotionally. Before starting any treatment, Dr. Blakemore takes her patients through an in-depth PowerPoint presentation during which she provides education regarding fertility, possible causes of infertility, the testing available to discover sources of infertility, and potential treatment options. She also discusses your history and what specific testing she has planned. She clearly explains all test results and all treatment options.

She also provided extensive emotional support at each appointment, and even between. She called before and after each procedure to check in and answered emails with questions at all times of the day/night. The NYU Fertility clinic is clearly very busy, but Dr. Blakemore never made me feel like a number and I felt as though she was truly invested in ensuring a positive outcome and making sure I felt seen and heard throughout the process. Once we "Graduated" from the fertility clinic to switch to the OB/GYN for prenatal care, I truly missed Dr. Blakemore and the care she provided. Infertility and IVF is such a difficult path to manage - you spend so much time at your fertility clinic and with your doctor that you want to make sure your fertility doctor is both competent and caring. As Dr. Blakemore says during treatment "You are my family, you are my sister, I want to make sure you get what you're here for." My husband and I are forever grateful to Dr. Blakemore and highly recommend her to anyone in the NYC area!

There was a morning monitoring window (7-9am), which was convenient because I could make the appointment before work.

I have never met a doctor as kind, patient, loving, and nurturing as Dr. Blakemore...She never made us feel rushed and always offered wise insights. When we spoke she actively listened with a full and compassionate heart...We also never felt out of place being a same-sex couple and she used inclusive language in every conversation...Dr. Blakemore is a strong, wise, and deeply empathetic person...
It [NYU Langone Fertility Center] was very clean and well managed. The nurses are kind and always talked to me like a person rather than a number. Lana always made us laugh and feel supported. Angela was extremely supportive as well. Sometimes it took a longer time to get my blood drawn but I really didn't mind waiting a few extra minutes...staff is warm and gentle...
How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
I have never met a doctor as kind, patient, loving, and nurturing as Dr. Blakemore. This is an extremely vulnerable and often difficult process. When we went through our challenging times Dr. Blakemore allowed us to be as sad as we needed and held space to heal and continue. She never made us feel rushed and always offered wise insights. When we spoke she actively listened with a full and compassionate heart. To be honest, she felt like a family member cheering us on throughout the entire time. We also never felt out of place being a same-sex couple and she used inclusive language in every conversation. Her staff is warm and gentle. Shennetta always made us laugh and Lana was always ready with positive affirmations before and after transfers. We can not recommend Dr. Blakemore and her team more highly. I am currently 9 and a half months pregnant and I feel so grateful that such a wonderful person and doctor helped create our dream family.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Enjoy! This process is vulnerable and emotionally taxing. Dr. Blakemore is a strong, wise, and deeply empathetic person. Trust and confidence is so important when entering this journey and if you allow her, she will take the best care of you, as she does with everyone in her life.

Dr. Blakemore was welcoming and caring....made you feel she truly cared about you and your treatment, and that you were not just another patient...made me feel heard and listened to...felt she was as passionate about my sucess as I was...happily answered any questions, explaining it in ways you can easily understand
Strength [of NYU Langone Fertility Center]...resources and experience to treat whatever issues/concerns that may be causing inferility issues...Weakness...able to get in for morning monitoring early in the morning before work, before it got too busy. If I had to go later in the day, it wait times would be longer.
How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr. Blakemore was welcoming and caring. She made you feel she truly cared about you and your treatment, and that you were not just another patient. The whole process with morning montioring and routine bloodwork etc can get a bit clinical, but each time I sat with Dr. Blakemore, she made me feel heard and listened to. I felt she was as passionate about my sucess as I was. Hands down, amazing experience and I'd recommend her to anyone and everyone.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Be open about what you want out of the process and what you know/don't know about how it all works. She takes the time to educate you and walk you through everything and wants to be on the same page as you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr Blakemore was more than your doctor - she was warm, encouraging, and kind during the entire process. She happily answered any questions, explaining it in ways you can easily understand, and would make sure to call you herself for any updates or to answer and questions you left for her. The whole process is a bit overwhelming, but Dr. Blakemore made it feel empowering. I looked forward to our appointments.
Describe your experience with NYU Langone Fertility Center.
Strength: They had the resources and experience to treat whatever issues/concerns that may be causing inferility issues. They were never able to diagnose what the underlying cause of my struggles were (unexplained infertility) but were able to help me nonethe less. Weakness: I was able to get in for morning monitoring early in the morning before work, before it got too busy. If I had to go later in the day, it wait times would be longer.

Doctor Blakemore was warm, compassionate, and empathetic during our time as her patient...always felt warm, and never rushed and never treated like a number...Throughout the multiple treatments (IUI and IVF), the procedures were clearly explained, including next steps

How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Doctor Blakemore started our initial visit with a detailed presentation, going through all options, types of infertility, etc. As someone who prefers details and being prepared, this was very helpful and a great start to the whole process. Throughout the multiple treatments (IUI and IVF), the procedures were clearly explained, including next steps, and not rushed. Doctor Blakemore was kind and compassionate, helping us get through this difficult process with optimism. Would highly recommend Doctor Blakemore and her office for fertility treatments.

Dr. Blakemore heard me out and was compassionate and optimistic without setting unrealistic expectations.

My original hope was to do a double embryo transfer (one of mine, one of my wife's) and raised this with Dr. Blakemore at an early appointment. While of course she explained the inherent risks of anything other than a singleton, she never judged or tried to dissuade, and allowed for it to be an open conversation throughout our egg retrieval, up until we actually scheduled the transfer. She has mastered the balance of being a doctor while still prioritizing and respecting the wants/hopes/dreams of her patients. Ultimately, we went with a single embryo transfer to better suit the needs of growing our family, but this also means the added bonus of getting to return to Dr. Blakemore again in the future.
In the beginning, my wife and I narrowed down our search to Dr. Blakemore [at NYU Langone Fertility Center] and another specialist at Columbia. We sent a message to Dr. Blakemore's office first, and received a callback immediately from Shenetta. She made us feel so comfortable so quickly that before we even hung up I told my wife that there was no need to reach out to the other clinic, that my gut was screaming we found the right place for us. We are forever grateful for that first phone call with Shenetta, because there was no better place for us than NYU.
How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
My wife and I both were patients, looking to do tandem egg retrievals, fertilization and PGT-A testing, then an embryo transfer for me to carry first. Dr. Blakemore was so inclusive and respectful with her language from the jump as well as the warmest, most comforting and responsive doctor we've ever been to. While my wife's egg retrieval was pretty straightforward (her shot protocol didn't change throughout), mine was chaotic, with my dosages needing to be changed dramatically or dropping off entirely after each blood draw (which pretty much became daily). But because Dr. Blakemore is the ultimate pro, and managed my highly reactive system perfectly. In the end, my wife and I walked away with 16 perfectly healthy, PGT-A-tested embryos. I have no doubt that 100% of the credit goes to Dr. Blakemore.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
You can stop looking, there is no better fertility specialist than Dr. Blakemore.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
I cannot begin to fathom just how stressful Dr. Blakemore's job is, or how many patients are under her care at a time, because she truly made my wife and me feel like her only patients throughout. From the first visit/consult to the last -- and even as recently as this week as I shared photos and an update from our fetal anatomy scan -- Dr. Blakemore has been the greatest and most responsive support.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
I was very lucky to have supplemental fertility insurance (Progyny) but my wife wasn't on my insurance at the time for her retrieval. Between our two retrievals, meds, PGT-A testing, monthly/yearly storage fees, and one transfer (which fell under a SmartCycle), I think our out-of-pocket expenses were about 10k.
Describe Jennifer Blakemore's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at NYU Langone Fertility Center.

She has mastered the balance of being a doctor while still prioritizing and respecting the wants/hopes/dreams of her patients. Ultimately, we went with a single embryo transfer to better suit the needs of growing our family, but this also means the added bonus of getting to return to Dr. Blakemore again in the future.

How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr. Blakemore comes across as a confident, warm and compassionate person and instantly makes you feel comfortable. She truly seems to love her work. I felt satisfied after getting all my questions patiently answered. She gave a realistic picture of what to expect and my final results matched that.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Trust the doctor. You may not get to see her every visit but I have noticed that's how it works in the other clinics I consulted with too, as egg retrieval is a time sensitive procedure and the attending doctor will perform it. My case was very standard and easy and there were no surprises or complications.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr. Blakemore thoroughly explained egg freezing process to me during the consultation session and patiently answered my questions. She has a warm demeanor which made me choose her over other 2 doctors that I consulted with (NYU's reputation being a factor as well). She told me it's safe to wait a few months and come back when I am ready and that it would not make a huge difference ; so it did not feel like she was just trying to sell this expensive procedure to me. She was available for another quick consultation call after 8 months when I finally decided to freeze eggs. If she's working at the clinic, she makes it a point to see her patients as opposed to having someone else do the monitoring. There was good coordination between the nurses and the doctor to advise me throughout my cycle when I made minor goof ups with my dosage. She personally called me after the procedure to talk about the results and again answer my questions.
Describe the protocols Jennifer Blakemore used in your cycles at NYU Langone Fertility Center and their degree of success.
The dosage was varied throughout the cycle based on my response to the medications. Lupron trigger was used (I guess that's because I have PCOS and Lupron prevents OHSS). I was kept on moderate dosage.
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Lisa Valentine)
I met with different nurses throughout my cycle for bloodwork. I paid a nurse on the first day of stims to assist me with the injections at home. I had a positive experience over all.
Describe your experience with NYU Langone Fertility Center.
I liked the quick check in process. The facility (both Nomad and 1st Ave) looked good, welcoming, and clean. I was given an option to pick either facility based on my preference for regular monitoring visits. I had found out about NYU through Lilia and there was some follow up required with Billing to have the $400 discount applied to my account, but it went by fine (I believe I was the first person who approached them through Lilia ; hence, minor delay). I was happy about the consultation session NYU hosted for all egg freezing patients that were scheduled for the specific time period. NYU facility will be shifting to another location sometime towards the end of 2022 . That means that the tank carrying frozen eggs will be moved to that new facility. I got a call from my doctor after the retrieval was done to talk about the results. There was no formal documentation provided with the results and key details of my procedure (date of procedure, who performed, number of eggs retrieved and frozen, place where the eggs would be stored etc.). I requested for it and got a signed copy within a day. Overall, I had a good experience.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
Approximately $10,000 including the initial consultation and preliminary blood test and excluding fertility medications that costed approximately $2500 out of pocket.
Describe Jennifer Blakemore's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at NYU Langone Fertility Center.

Dr Blakemore has by far the kindest demeanor of any doctor of any speciality I have ever seen. Beyond that, she is clearly passionate about the field of fertility and gives extreme care to her patients, who she treats as she would a friend. From day one of my consult, I felt that she took note of my demeanor, intelligence, questions and pre-research into the field, and then catered our discussion to my specific circumstances and desires.
NYU is clearly the top in terms of expertise, data, procedures, and pure numbers which was a huge reason for me choosing their clinic. I felt completely safe in their hands, and trusted their entire team. While it is a huge organization, I rarely felt like a number, as every single person I spoke to treated everyone with compassion. The west side office in particular feels very community-based and is modern / bright and clean
How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr. Blakemore’s excitement and passion for the field of fertility is clear from the moment you meet, and present at every single early morning appointment. While admittedly my egg freezing journey was likely easier than most and purely elective to preserve future fertility, it can still be an anxiety-provoking experience. Seeing doctor Blakemore always put me at ease, and I looked forward to our appointments to hear updates and get her feedback on next steps. Also, as someone who is personally interested in the field / curious / works best when I have all the information, Dr. Blakemore was very forthcoming with sharing updates about my progress, answering my questions and discussing all the science of egg freezing and female reproduction. Beyond being an advocate for her patients, from our conversations I could tell she is a true advocate for women’s healthcare
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Ask questions - she will gladly answer them all. And as fertility is a complex topic - ask follow-ups if anything is confusing!

Dr Blakemore has by far the kindest demeanor of any doctor of any speciality I have ever seen.

From day one of my consult, I felt that she took note of my demeanor, intelligence, questions and pre-research into the field, and then catered our discussion to my specific circumstances and desires. I had taken a consult with another doctor at a different clinic prior to meeting Dr. Blakemore, however after my consult with Dr. Blakemore - it was a no brainer that she was the right choice for me.
Describe the protocols Jennifer Blakemore used in your cycles at NYU Langone Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We used a fairly standard strategy and protocol (daily Gonal F and Menopur, addition of Cetrotide halfway through, and then a Leutrotide trigger on day 10). We did not use Ovidrel as I was at risk of OHSS and we eventually lowered the dosage of Gonal F towards the end. Additonally, I had the nightly support of an NYU nurse helping with shots. To avoid me having to pay for 2x visits per day, Dr Blakemore changed my protocol to allow me to take the cetrotide at night with my fantastic nurse, Lavina. Overall, we stimulated many eggs (32 retrieved, 20 frozen), and I have not developed OHSS (4 days post-op as of this review)
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Lavina )
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough about Lavina. I am very needle phobic and Lavina came to my apt nightly (fully masked) to administer all medications including the trigger. I looked into private nursing services, but the added benefit of having a nurse who was intimately familiar with the NYU team, Dr. Blakemore, as well as my charts, put me at ease throughout the process. Truly I could not have done this experience without her. Beyond Lavina, all of the nurses who would call for treatment updates, answer questions, or draw blood were kind, professional, and personable. It was clear that everyone at the clinic is friendly and truly enjoys their job and the patients they see

The west side office in particular feels very community-based and is modern / bright and clean. For example: upon riding the elevator one morning, another woman and I started talking about our experience so far. It truly felt like a community of supportive women.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
Fortunately my procedure and medications were covered by my insurance. I did pay out of pocket for daily at-home nurse visits to administer shots. I looked into private nursing services and doing this through NYU was not only more affordable, it had the added benefit of being connected to the NYU system

Dr. Blakemore is the kindest, smartest, and most compassionate doctor I’ve ever encountered. I trusted her fully. I had many setbacks through the fertility journey (poor egg quality and a miscarriage). Dr. Blakemore was always honest and transparent while also providing positivity throughout the journey. She truly loves what she does and it shines through. With each setback she would have new ideas on what we could try next. You are in safe and caring hands with Dr. Blakemore.
Although NYU is a large and busy practice, they maintain an environment where you feel like your personal care is their top priority. Everyone I came into contact with was compassionate and organized.

Dr. Blakemore takes her time to completely explain every single option for your treatment. She does not rush and never makes you feel like you're asking too many questions...She listened to concerns about the course of treatment as readily as she listened to concerns about the emotional toll infertility can take...Knowing that our doctor had the same conviction and dedication to helping our dream come true was a blessing. My care and our goal of starting our family was always her first priority.
All of the [NYU Langone Fertility Center] nursing staff was amazing. I ended up feeling as attached to them as Dr. Blakemore during the process. They guided me through shots, helped to hold my hand and distract me during blood draws and everything in between...I received phone calls and emails daily from the nursing staff to ensure I understood the next steps with my medication. We retrieved 13 eggs, 9 became embryos and 7 went to genetic testing. I'm happy to share that under Dr. Blakemore's care, we now have a happy, healthy little girl after 1.5 years of trying to conceive.

She does not rush and never makes you feel like you're asking too many questions - in fact....she welcomes them. She listened to concerns about the course of treatment as readily as she listened to concerns about the emotional toll infertility can take. I'll never forget when she told me "My number one job is to get you pregnant, we will not do anything to ever jeopardize making sure you have a healthy baby." Knowing that our doctor had the same conviction and dedication to helping our dream come true was a blessing. My care and our goal of starting our family was always her first priority.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
From the moment we met Dr. Blakemore, it was an instant fit. She finds the perfect balance between radiating warmth and positivity with the understanding and compassion of why you are in the care of a fertility doctor. She will tell you on day one that she loves her job....and you'll never doubt that for a second while under her care.
Describe the protocols Jennifer Blakemore used in your cycles at NYU Langone Fertility Center and their degree of success.
While under the care of Dr. Blakemore, we tried one round of IUI and then moved on to IVF (our choice). I was seen every other day and then daily as it neared my egg retrieval. I received phone calls and emails daily from the nursing staff to ensure I understood the next steps with my medication. We retrieved 13 eggs, 9 became embryos and 7 went to genetic testing. I'm happy to share that under Dr. Blakemore's care, we now have a happy, healthy little girl after 1.5 years of trying to conceive.

I have gone through 2 rounds of unsuccessful IVF prior to Dr. Blakemore, during our first visit, she pointed out the issues with the prior IVF cycles that I was unaware of that would have played a major part in the implanting process of the embryo. She was also super empathetic, attentive and compassionate. Even during the regular routine checkup of the IVF process, she was there personally half of the time where as my first fertility doctor only shows up during the transfer procedure. I now have an adorable boy thanks to Dr. Blakemore.

Dr. Blakemore always had a smile on her face, never made you feel rushed, always was honest and answered your questions to the best of her ability. I never felt like I was on a time limit, or that she wasn't available if I needed her. Twice I had to call with questions, and twice Dr. Blakemore HERSELF called me back almost right away to answer the questions and calm my nerves when my nerves needed to be calmed...I wanted to transfer two embryos but Dr. Blakemore insisted we do only one...
The nursing team [at NYU Langone Fertility Center] always reached out when you needed them and always gave detailed information. You never felt rushed and sometimes they even listened to me vent. They showed compassion and kindness from day one and did whatever they could to assist you and your doctor in getting you the care and information you need...I usually waited 10-15 min for an ultrasound after blood work which isn't bad. Occasionally on very very busy days, I had to wait 30 minutes and maybe once or twice more but in total, you were essentially in and out in an hour...
How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
I was lucky enough to become pregnant under the care of Dr. Blakemore. After 2 and a half years trying to conceive. I came from another practice with many issues so my first consultation with her, I had reservations about trusting someone else with my fertility treatments, especially after feeling so ignored at my previous clinic. From the first day meeting with her, she really helps you feel relaxed, calm and shared her own personal journey with me which helped break down some of my walls. She was thorough with everything she explained to both me and my husband and let us know she was always available if we needed her. Dr. Blakemore wasn't kidding. She seemingly works every single day, and has even called me back herself on numerous occasions to answer questions for me. You can see the passion she has in all that she does - she's beaming with it. She's excited everyday to come to work and help people conceive children. It's hard not to be excited when your doctor is so excited and positive and happy to be there. She helps you see the positive and continue moving forward even when setbacks seem huge. She supports you in your decisions and explains risks and benefits. I felt like she became my friend while I was there - my own personal cheerleader cheering me on. As a doctor, she's incredible and she absolutely amazing at what she does. If you need protocol adjusted, she adjusts it. She knows what works. Our second retrieval was 3x as successful as our first BECAUSE of Jennifer Blakemore. This woman will one day be in the hall of fame for science or something because she does so much research and cares about what she does, shes either going to discover something magical - I don't know. She's up to date on the latest information. I literally could go on and on and on about how marvelous I think she is as a person and as a doctor. She would always inform me where she would be so I knew where to schedule my appointment so I could be seen by her. She's incredibly hands on. Again, this is her passion and as a patient, you feel like your success is her passion - her goal. I wish all my doctors were as incredible as Dr. Blakemore. Tears were shed when I finally was lucky enough to graduate the fertility clinic because she was so caring, compassionate, kind, dedicated - just amazing. Words cannot describe. If you're looking for a fertility doctor, you would be VERY lucky to have the chance to work with Dr. Blakemore. It was the ultimate privilege for myself and my husband and I truly believe that without her, we wouldn't be pregnant right now. She made me a better person through this process. I owe her everything and cannot thank her enough.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
I don't feel like you need any advice from me other than to trust Dr. Blakemore. She knows what she's talking about. If you listen to her, you will be in the best hands around!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Although there are many patients in this clinic, the staff works as a team to make you feel special and make you feel like you're the only patient in the facility. From the way the nurses checked you in, took your blood work and answered questions to the face to face appointments with Dr. Blakemore. Dr. Blakemore always had a smile on her face, never made you feel rushed, always was honest and answered your questions to the best of her ability. I never felt like I was on a time limit, or that she wasn't available if I needed her. Twice I had to call with questions, and twice Dr. Blakemore HERSELF called me back almost right away to answer the questions and calm my nerves when my nerves needed to be calmed. I feel like she cares about each of her patients and takes her job seriously. It's not a job for her. It's a passion and she has a team around her who help support that.
Describe the protocols Jennifer Blakemore used in your cycles at NYU Langone Fertility Center and their degree of success.
For IUI, we used Clomid and Ovidrel. For both retrievals, we used Clomid. For my first retrieval, we used Menopur, Gonal F, Ovidrel and Cetritide. On my second and final retrieval, we used Gonal F, Lupron, and HCG. There may have been more but I can't remember. The change from the first to second retrieval helped us get better quality eggs.
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Rachel)
From day one, Dr. Blakemore's assistant Shenetta helped me stay focused, stay calm and answered every single one of my questions - and there were a lot. The nursing team always reached out when you needed them and always gave detailed information. You never felt rushed and sometimes they even listened to me vent. They showed compassion and kindness from day one and did whatever they could to assist you and your doctor in getting you the care and information you need. Couldn't be happier with the team!
Describe your experience with NYU Langone Fertility Center.
I have no complaints at all about this clinic, aside from one appointment (which just happened to be bad luck because so many people were there lol - not in the clinics control), the appointment wait times are very reasonable (15 minutes, sometimes less than 5 minutes). The staff is kind, compassionate, caring. My only negative experience was that I am disabled and needed to use the elevator to get to the second floor and the girl at the front desk was not educated on disabilities and it was a very complicated process, where I loudly had to basically plead my case to convince her I was disabled enough for her liking to be able to use the elevator. Aside from that, everyone was amazing.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
Morning monitoring was an interesting experience because while I have no complaints, there is a certain feeling of a cattle call, but very minor. It doesn't change my perception of this clinic, because it also runs as a well oiled machine. You come in, they call you back, take your blood work and then you wait in another area to be called for your ultrasound. Each time you delt with a staff member, it was very individualized, but I would have liked going from blood work, to an US room instead of another waiting area, however I understand why they do it this way. The quicker they get your blood work in, the quicker they call you with the results. The blood work takes a few minutes while ultrasounds take more time. It can feel frustrating at first, but you get the hang of it. I think theres just this feeling of being at a fertility clinic where you just want to get in, get the info and get on with your life because you don't want to become "the fertility girl" so the waiting can seem worse than it is. I usually waited 10-15 min for an ultrasound after blood work which isn't bad. Occasionally on very very busy days, I had to wait 30 minutes and maybe once or twice more but in total, you were essentially in and out in an hour - give or take 20 minutes - which I didn't mind because I got to see my doctor each time so it was blood work, ultrasound and speaking to my doctor which felt worth it to me.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
We were lucky to have insurance so we had copays since our deductible was met and then just the cost of the PGT testing. I know this is not the standard practice so we feel very lucky that this was our experience.
Describe Jennifer Blakemore's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
I wanted to transfer two embryos but Dr. Blakemore insisted we do only one. I wasn't pleased then because I was so nervous it was going to fail, but I trusted her, because she gave me the information I needed to understand that one was the way to go. If we failed on our first transfer, we could discuss two in the future. I was very concerned with running out of insurance benefits, but in the end I am VERY happy I listed to Dr. Blakemore because I am pregnant and to me, that is a success!

From the intake process, Dr. Blakemore ruled out what I had thought was the issue of our infertility caused by my PCOS, with the larger factor of low sperm count that was contributing to our failed attempts at conceiving. From the very beginning, Dr. Blakemore helped us truly understand every detail of our options, our journey, and possible outcomes. Just as importantly, she provided us with immediate attention and care, and we never, ever felt like time was wasted.
The nursing and administrative staff at the NYU west side location is incredible. They are always there to help answer questions, coordinate precious time, and provide you with the care you need to get through a very timely and emotional process....We much preferred the West Side location to the East, particularly when it came to working with the administrative and nursing staff. We also found that the earliest appointment slots were best for time management, especially if you work full time.
How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Previous to seeing Dr. Blakemore, I had gone to my obgyn for an ultrasound to inquire whether I had PCOS or not. After almost a month and a half of ignored test results and unclear communication with my obgyn, we decided to see Dr. Blakemore. From the intake process, Dr. Blakemore ruled out what I had thought was the issue of our infertility caused by my PCOS, with the larger factor of low sperm count that was contributing to our failed attempts at conceiving. From the very beginning, Dr. Blakemore helped us truly understand every detail of our options, our journey, and possible outcomes. Just as importantly, she provided us with immediate attention and care, and we never, ever felt like time was wasted. Dr. Blakemore is as compassionate as she is comprehensive, and I don’t have enough words to describe how happy we were to find her. In the end, our course of treatment was IVF, and we were successful with Dr. Blakemore after one round of retrievals and one transfer. We have four additional healthy embryos frozen from this round as well. We always felt like we were in the best hands possible with her as our doctor, and I am so glad she will be there for us in the future.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr. Blakemore is the most caring doctor we’ve ever been to. At a time when our emotions were running high from many uncertainties, Dr. Blakemore never treated us like we were one of many. She was always there to answer questions and concerns, and provided direct information with kindness and compassion.

Dr. Blakemore explained the entire process from the start to the end. She made sure we understood all the risks, benefits, and alternatives of each procedure. She frequently asked if we had any questions throughout each encounter. She made us feel empowered by letting us chose educated decisions regarding our treatments...She was very thorough during our fertility work-up/evaluation...
The nursing staff [at NYU Langone] we absolutely detailed and organized. They were very knowledgeable. Also very kind and patient which is important...Ease of access (1st ave and west side). Entire team was wonderful. Not exactly weakness, but sometimes you will have different nurse and providers for some appointments (not a weakness again, each staff is well updated with your case and history)...
How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr. Jennifer Blakemore is truly a gem of a physician! She is an intelligent doctor with an absolutely wonderful heart. My husband and I are very grateful to Dr. Blakemore and her team for helping us build a family. She made us feel that we belonged to the right place the moment from time of our initial consultation. She was very thorough during our fertility work-up/evaluation. She made sure that my husband and I understood each process and progression of each treatment. I felt truly comfortable and at ease during each procedure. She was always on top of my test results especially during my daily monitoring for my retrievals. She gave us a true sense of hope in this complex world of infertility. We will be forever grateful to her care. We strongly recommend Dr. Blakemore for any future fertility patients.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Always ask questions! She would love to answer them!

How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr. Blakemore is a wonderful physician and person. I had an unusual fertility journey. Wanting to check in on my fertility, I was referred to Dr. Blakemore by a relative. I found out that I have a very low AMH level for my age, a high FSH, and a blocked Fallopian tube. Dr. Blakemore explained all of this information to me bluntly and honestly but gently, and told me not to worry yet as I was still young and healthy. Finding out this information, I was extremely nervous as I have always really wanted to be a mother. I asked if I should freeze eggs for future children or go through treatments. I would have gone through any process suggested, but Dr. Blakemore recommended I did not try anything but the old-fashioned way, and then return to her if that didn’t work out. Luckily for me, my partner and I conceived spontaneously. Dr. Blakemore directed me down the path that made her zero profit, because she cares about her patients and their needs. I know for a fact she treats patients on a case-by-case basis as my referring relative froze eggs with Dr. Blakemore, whereas I was advised not to due to my DOR and low AMH. I highly recommend this doctor!

This was the single best experience I've ever had with a medical provider of any kind. This was also the hardest experience of my life. As a non-binary queer person, I have a lot of feelings about reproduction (and a lot of doubts). Dr. Blakemore made it easy to come to the office (I almost looked forward to it)...really listened to me...never mis-gendered me, never made my wife feel less than, and honored our non-traditional family structure (using a known donor for at-home insemination).
Overall, the staff at NYU could use a training on pronouns (though Dr. Blakemore was exceptional)...For important medical issues, we got immediate calls back and they were very communicative. For insurance reimbursement and second parent adoption paperwork later on, we struggled to get in touch...Basically, no one would respond to us once we were pregnant.
How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
This was the single best experience I've ever had with a medical provider of any kind. This was also the hardest experience of my life. As a non-binary queer person, I have a lot of feelings about reproduction (and a lot of doubts). Dr. Blakemore made it easy to come to the office (I almost looked forward to it). She really listened to me and never second guessed my hunches about my body (which turned out to be accurate). Dr. Blakemore never mis-gendered me, never made my wife feel less than, and honored our non-traditional family structure (using a known donor for at-home insemination). She leveled with us honestly about our chances but also kept us feeling hopeful. We followed her advice and treatment plan, including having a hysteroscopy and using Letrozole at home for two cycles. Two months later, I was pregnant and went on to deliver a healthy baby (Jan 2022). When we had to go see an OBGYN for my pregnancy, we actively missed Dr. Blakemore and felt that it was basically impossible to match her level of care and cultural sensitivity.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Ask anything you want and share your fears. If you have hunches about your body, share them. Dr. Blakemore will not judge, she'll listen, and she'll address your questions/fears/doubts extremely thoroughly.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr. Blakemore is extremely thorough and caring. At our first session, she spent over an hour with my partner and I just explaining reproductive systems (with a slide deck of over 70 slides). Along the way, she answered every medical question, called on her day off, validated our emotions, and treated us like we were her most important priority (when I knew she had many many patients to see). She also treated my wife (the non-gestational partner) with so much love and care. I am non-binary and have some past medical trauma so she was extremely careful with me and made me feel super safe--always being the one to scan me and assuring me she would perform the surgery I later needed (and no one else would even touch me).
Describe the protocols Jennifer Blakemore used in your cycles at NYU Langone Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We did a few cycles of at home insemination with a known donor. We realized that our donor had a low sperm count after speaking with Dr. Blakemore about the consistency of the sperm and sending the donor for testing. We then switched known donors at the advice of Dr. Blakemore. I later suspected there was something wrong with my reproductive system after several failed attempts (even though I was ovulating normally) so we did an HSG and found uterine adhesions. I had a hysteroscopy and did two cycles of at-home insemination with Letrozole to help out. I got pregnant on the second cycle and delivered a healthy baby in January 2022.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
I am not sure about the nursing staff as we didn't often interact with nurses (a few blood draws maybe?). For important medical issues, we got immediate calls back and they were very communicative. For insurance reimbursement and second parent adoption paperwork later on, we struggled to get in touch. Some of the nurses and billers were not as good with my gender pronouns as Dr. Blakemore.
Describe your experience with NYU Langone Fertility Center.
Clinic was pretty busy for blood work and monitoring on the East side so there was often a wait and it was crowded (even during COVID-19). Overall, the staff at NYU could use a training on pronouns (though Dr. Blakemore was exceptional). For billing reimbursement and other paperwork, it was a little hard to get in touch. But, overall, the experience was wonderful.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
We spent a few thousand dollars on freezing sperm and then a few hundred on co-pays and medications (or maybe like a grand?). Some of our expenses related to the sperm freezing were reimbursable through my wife's union but we never got the paperwork we needed from the clinic. We had to get her office to change the policy (which was months and months of advocacy) because we couldn't get what we needed from NYU. Basically, no one would respond to us once we were pregnant.

Dr. Blakemore was one of the kindest doctors I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.

The staff [at NYU Langone] can and will answer any questions you have quickly. I was never made to feel like I was asking a dumb question or was being to needy. Once the process starts, it’s fast! It’s good to use the support of the staff...Everyone I dealt with in the facility was extremely professional as well as friendly...
How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Jennifer Blakemore was kind, compassionate and honest. She made me feel comfortable in every aspect of my treatment and helped me to feel positive and calm when I began stressing about my pregnancy in the early stages after it was confirmed. I would recommend her to anyone hoping to conceive.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Trust that she will be honest with you about the reality of the fertility process, while still remaining very positive. That smile and bubbly demeanor isn’t an act, it’s genuine!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr. Blakemore was one of the kindest doctors I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. I was always greeted with a smile, she remembered our fertility history without having to be reminded and I appreciated how she was very honest about the realities of the outcome while still being optimistic. It made us hopeful but grounded in our expectations.
Describe the protocols Jennifer Blakemore used in your cycles at NYU Langone Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Prior to the egg retrieval, I did what was considered the standard amount and dosage of shots for several weeks. Despite having a low egg reserve, we were able to retrieve 7 eggs, 3 of which were viable embryos after genetic testing. After my confirmed pregnancy, I started on progesterone shots and a suppository of endometrin. My body reacted poorly to the endometrin and I had some bleeding after a few weeks. Dr. Blakemore quickly adjusted my medication so I no longer had to take the suppository and instead took a progesterone shot daily as opposed to every other day. This immediately stopped the bleeding and my pregnancy progressed perfectly after that.

Describe your experience with NYU Langone Fertility Center.
A new patient may want to know that while the process seems daunting at first, don’t be afraid to ask questions. The staff can and will answer any questions you have quickly. I was never made to feel like I was asking a dumb question or was being to needy. Once the process starts, it’s fast! It’s good to use the support of the staff
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
I was fortunate enough to have a large amount of the fertility costs covered under my insurance. We paid in full for the genetic testing (which was by choice, and not required) and paid a partial cost of some of the necessary medications.
Describe Jennifer Blakemore's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
I understood my age to be a factor in using one embryo instead of multiple. Pregnancy with multiples can be more risky and I think it was the right decision.

How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
I first went to see Dr. Blakemore for a consultation since I had failed 3 FET’s in the past already. She was so prepared with data, a PowerPoint presentation and ready for all my questions. I was looking for a more aggressive action plan for my next FET and she offered me multiple options and we weighed the pro’s and con’s together. I never felt rushed throughout my entire appointment and really felt like she was listening to all my concerns and addressed each one. She also gave me ample time for questions.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Write down all your questions so you don’t forget it because she gives a lot of information
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
She addressed my concerns and how I was feeling. When I lost hope she knew I needed support and focused less on the clinical stuff. She gave me examples from her friends who had gone through this and she always checked in with me just to see how I was feeling and doing
Describe the protocols Jennifer Blakemore used in your cycles at NYU Langone Fertility Center and their degree of success.
1st protocol included an extra day of progesterone since that’s what my ERA biopsy results came back with. My second protocol included lovenox and prednisone after 2 months of lupron depot since I was diagnosed surgically with endometriosis. My third protocol included letrozole in the beginning and letting my body naturally ovulate.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
Other than 1 hiccup, due to staffing shortage because of weather, the team was thorough and kept me informed in a timely manner on my results and any changes to my medication regimen. They were also great with calling prior to procedure days with thorough instructions.
Describe your experience with NYU Langone Fertility Center.
Strengths: the doctors were great, communication with the team was thorough and timely, always heard back from the team when I left a message, I felt like the team was always updated with my latest results and were great in making sure I understood my instructions Weaknesses: wait time can be long especially during peak hours and weekends, had multiple billing issues that I had to keep following up with
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
I didn’t have to pay any co-pays and most of my prescriptions went to a pharmacy my insurance company allowed. Most costs were associated with medication co-insurances. My insurance covered my egg retrieval, anesthesia, and FET’s.
Describe Jennifer Blakemore's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
I always wanted to transfer multiple since my husband and I were accepting of the risk for multiples but I only had 5 frozen embryos so we started off with 1 for my first FET and then agreed on 2 for the second and third. Made sense because we didn’t want to run out and towards the end, I didn’t know if I wanted any left over.

Dr. Blakemore is a true gem. She made me feel so cared for during a difficult and stressful time. I will never forget that she surprised me by coming to do my egg retrieval when another doctor was listed on the schedule. I was so nervous on the table before the procedure, she held my hand and distracted me until the anesthesia kicked in. She called me on Thanksgiving day to tell me the good news that I was pregnant. She’s incredibly attentive and makes you feel like her only patient, she never seemed rush...

No advice needed because you’re in great hands.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr. Blakemore was the single best doctor I’ve ever interacted with in my life. She is incredibly warm caring and friendly. She strikes the perfect balance of being upbeat while validating how hard it is to go through infertility treatment.
Describe your experience with NYU Langone Fertility Center.
I had a good experience. I started at another clinic originally that was very disorganized and the nurse was rude to me. NYU was great and I never had any issues. Can’t recall other details since it’s been a few years
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
I had to pay about $2500 for the genetic testing PGS. Other than that I think I paid about $2500 but that was to meet my deductible. Most of the services are covered under my insurance fortunately. We are currently paying for embryo private storage which is $1000 a year.

Dr. Blakemore is amazing! She is compassionate, detailed oriented, keeps me updated every step of the way. We discussed realistically what our goals are and made plans accordingly. I never felt lost and always knew she had a plan two steps ahead...Dr. Blakemore and her nurse made an effort to come in early to do my morning monitoring at the NoMad office...Selective single embryo transfer, we transferred day 5 PGS tested embryo
NYU is a very busy center. They are efficient but wait times at the main center can be long in the morning. All the major procedures take place at the main facility. The staff is well coordinated and experienced. I did most of my monitoring at their NoMad office during the week and found it to be much easier. The billing office is a little challenging to get a hold off... it is also an experience facility that is outcome driven and excellent at what they do
How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr. Blakemore is amazing! She is compassionate, detailed oriented, keeps me updated every step of the way. We discussed realistically what our goals are and made plans accordingly. I never felt lost and always knew she had a plan two steps ahead. IVF is not an easy process, full of ups and downs. Somethings are just not within anyone's control, Dr. Blakemore made the process that much easier for us. I am a physician who works very early morning hours, Dr. Blakemore and her nurse made an effort to come in early to do my morning monitoring at the NoMad office. That helped me tremendously, it allowed me to get to the hospital on time and take care of my own patients.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Trust her, be realistically about your goals, and be patient. IVF is difficult road with many ups and down.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
NYU is a busy facility that can be overwhelming. The upside is, it is also an experience facility that is outcome driven and excellent at what they do. I got recommendation from a friend that works at the center for Dr. Blakemore. I actually transferred care from another provider in the same practice in the middle of a retrieval process because I felt like I was getting lost in the process. The best decision I have made!
Describe the protocols Jennifer Blakemore used in your cycles at NYU Langone Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We would like to have 2 kids, so we did multiple rounds of egg retrievals to have couple of PGS tested embryos to account for rate of success with each transfer. While we got a fair number of eggs each round, not many made it day 5, and even less made it through genetic testing.
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Shenetta Walker)
We are so thankful for have met Shenetta! She is organized, she came in early to do my blood work for all of my monitoring sessions. She had everything setup before I got there at 6:30am. If I had any question, I knew I could email her and she would get back to me with answers or connect me with the right person.

How was your experience with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr. Blakemore is one of the best doctors I have ever had and I would recommend her without reservation to anyone else going through fertility treatment. She is extremely personable, very smart and up to date on the latest with fertility science. She explained everything very clearly to us and I always felt like I knew what was happening and what to expect. We had a pretty unique situation where we were doing IVF for genetic testing only as my husband and I are carriers of the same recessive gene. We also wanted the embryos to be tested for an extremely esoteric de novo mutation that our daughter was born with. Dr. Blakemore had a plan from day one for which specialized lab she wanted to use for testing and everything was seamless with them. She has a wonderful bedside manner, even during the stresses of treatment seeing her always brightened my day and I always felt she had time for any questions I had.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Dr. Blakemore is an amazing doctor who had an extremely personalized care plan from day one that yielded wonderful results for us.
Describe the protocols Jennifer Blakemore used in your cycles at NYU Langone Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We did an antagonist protocol and prepared for two retrievals since I wanted to have the option of having a number of additional children and at least 25% of any aneuploid embryos would likely inherit both of our recessive genes. The results surpassed everyone's expectations and we got 12 euploid embryos, 7 without our genetic issue. Our first transfer worked and the entire process was relatively seamless (for IVF) and I am now 14 weeks pregnant.
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU Langone Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Shenetta and Jean Ann)
The nursing staff at NYU was all extremely competent and helpful. They always responded to calls quickly the few times that I called after hours and needed help with something.
Describe your experience with NYU Langone Fertility Center.
For me, NYU was a perfect choice because I knew they had an in-house genetic counselor. With Dr. Blakemore, you get the best personal care while also getting the perks of a big institution like access to a genetic counselor. We also had Progyny coverage and the other option we were considering Cornell is not covered through that.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jennifer Blakemore at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
I was lucky to have coverage through Progyny through my employer, which my understanding is covers most of this. I haven't yet received any bills but wouldn't be surprised if I had some modest co-pays.
Describe Jennifer Blakemore's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at NYU Langone Fertility Center.
I had no desire to have twins so never asked about this, but recall that NYU has a slide in their standard presentation about why they encourage eSET due to the many health risks of multiples.
