Dr. Karipcin’s passion and intelligence regarding her job is evident. Not only does she help to make my understanding of my diagnosis and treatment clear, but she also shows personal regard for my emotions....Dr. Karipcin has a genuine and realistic approach that feels intimate when working with me as a patient. She is personable and heartfelt and always makes the time without rushing....From the very start of treatment, I was treated aggressively because of my DOR diagnosis and my husband’s MIF.
The flexibility of scheduling is also a plus. Everyone [at Conceptions] is overall friendly and has great bedside manner. The office is very cleanly. In terms of coordinating my everchanging needs it is sometimes a challenge to keep track and work with so many people on the team, billing staff, insurance, front desk, nurses, etc. However, I have learned it is easiest to communicate via email. Wait time to be seen in the office is usually not too bad, except for the few times during peak IVF cycles when it has been quite long.

Describe the protocols Sinem Karipcin used in your cycles at Conceptions Florida and their degree of success.
From the very start of treatment, I was treated aggressively because of my DOR diagnosis and my husband’s MIF. Injectables were used for both IUI and of course, IVF egg retrieval prep. 150 menopur daily for IUI and 300 menopur/300 Follistim daily for IVF.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Conceptions Florida.
There are many nurses, some of which handle IVF, IUI, or basic functions in the clinic. As our treatments have adjusted we have been passed around quite a bit’ and it is difficult to build a comfortable relationship with the nursing staff.

Dr. Karipcin is a very professional person, full of great charisma. She makes you understand what is the best treatment for you. She is full of a lot of patience and she will work hard so that you can achieve your pregnancy.

Dr K [Karipcin] would go out of her way to call or see me even if she was not scheduled to work or to come into the clinic that day whenever i may have needed extra care...Dr K utilized a number of different protocols trying different doses of menopur, gonal, cetrotide, ovidrel, leuprolide. My first retrieval, I gained one good embryo however my subsequent retrieval did not produce any and ceased growing on day 3. So she tried different protocols and froze my embryos earlier than day 5...
I liked how this clinic [Columbia University] had timed appointments for bloodwork and never waited long to be seen. Was always done within 30min and then on my way. I did not see my primary doctor but got to know the doctors through their rotation so felt comfortable with them even when that did my retrievals...My nurse Varda was absolutely the best. I would email her in the middle of the night how I messed up giving myself a dose or how I left out the certitude and she was immediately write me back soothing my fears...

She [Dr. Sinem Karipcin] is very knowledgeable in genetics, that's why we chose her, and she gave us the best options to be successful in our endeavours. She responded to emails late at night and always tried to get us responses to our many questions...SHe is very caring and personable. She makes you feel like you are going to be successful and gives you hope.
I like their [Columbia University] punctuality and efficiency of the team, for bloodwork and ultrasounds, it was usually pretty fast and easy. Booking your own appointments through Mychart is a plus,so you don't have to deal with long phone calls...I specifically wanted two embryos implanted and they didn't allow us to do it.

They were very specific and detailed with the date and time and the appointment reason.

We only discussed single embryo transfer due to my young age...Despite her incredibly busy schedule, Dr. K has always found time to personally respond to all my questions and concerns, in person, via email and on the phone...we have a healthy ongoing pregnancy, and even upon leaving the clinic, she is always there to address any of my concerns
All the care stuff was great and responded to emails very timely...the [Columbia University] retrieval recovery room looks like spa. All the staff is very attentive and kind. I couldn't have wished for a better environment. I rarely had to wait for more than 5-10 minutes which is huge for me! More importantly, most of nurses were well trained and didn't leave huge bruises when drawing blood.

From my first zoom consultation with Dr. Karipcin in June of 2020 I felt heard and understood. When our first IVF cycle failed and none of embryos matured, Dr. Karipcin was both compassionate and created a plan that addressed every possible failure. She collaborated with my husband's urologist and together they came up with a plan that ultimately worked for us. I am currently 8 weeks pregnant and we are forever grateful to Dr. K and the entire team at Columbia.
Coming from a different practice where I felt unheard and like a number, Columbia was a breath of fresh air...With my first round of IVF I was on a higher dose of Gonal and a lower dose of Menopaur. When none of the eggs matured my Dr. adjusted it for the second round. We also used TESE to get the sperm as that was thought to be a second factor for the embryos not maturing...All of the nurses are attentive, efficient, and caring and it is evident in their care

Dr. K [Karipcin] was always extremely responsive and willing to answer questions...She is extremely knowledgeable and gives you all the information on the process and the realities of the timeline (which can feel long). I always felt I was in extremely capable hands and getting the best treatment possible...Ask questions and discuss timeline ahead of time so you are completely aware of what’s going on...

Dr. Karipcin's strengths: She has a wonderful, light attitude that lifted my spirits during the dreadful process of infertility treatments. She was optimistic (when I wasn't) and very open to my questions...was easily accessible...She also has an easy-going demeanor and I felt no judgment...only considered transferring a singleton, to preserve the chances of viability and thriving
[Columbia University] Strength: I never ever had to see pictures of babies or a waiting room of pregnant women. The clinic is bare and sterile, and thank God for it - I was not in a headspace to see pregnant people or mothers...[nurse] Varda was excellent and responsive. Carlotta was efficient, not as quick to respond but ultimately pleasant...Dr. Karipcin was easily accessible - she always answered my questions. She was receptive to my suggestions and questions. She also has an easy-going demeanor and I felt no judgment.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Columbia University.
My husband was scheduled to express sperm at the clinic. He asked if he could do so onsite (we live an hour from the clinic and didn't have a car). He was told yes. But when he arrived for his appointment, there was a miscommunication and he was not afforded a room to express sperm. Thus, he was turned away and the semen analysis was delayed. Dr. Karipcin wrote to us expressing her apologies for the inconvenience, which we appreciated.

I have been consulting Dr Karipcin Since 2019. She is a great doctor.She understands and answers all your questions. I have successfully conceived with the treatment she had planned for me. She was always very prompt in answering emails when I had any concerns with my symptoms. I Would highly recommend her... She will do what is best for you based on your test results and situation.
The Columbia University Fertility center is equipped with latest technology and the staff from the reception to the procedure room is great. Strengths- Very organized, clean, all rooms are well equipped, wonderful staff...Weakness- not many weakness but sometimes the long wait for a sonogram room makes you uncomfortable when you have a busy day and need to be at work soon...The nursing staff was great too- Very time I went for a sonogram and blood work the nursing staff was very warm and polite. The Nurse (don't remember her name)who is always there outside the procedure room is such a warm person. You are already very nervous and panicked thinking about what will happen in the procedure room and when she says "My dear" It just relieves all the fears and makes you feel everything is fine. Antoinette- made it so easy with all the Insurance related concerns. Thankyou to each one of you and sorry If I have missed any names.

She was kind and patient with all my questions
This clinics [Columbia University] strengths are in the nurses and some of the doctors.

But the facilities are nice and if you are assigned to Dr. Ks team you won’t regret it...I genuinely felt like my [nursing] team became my friends. They were such a source of strength and positive energy during my cycles.

[Dr. Karipcin] was very professional and kind and also set realistic expectations and was available by email to communicate outside of appointments. I felt like we were in good hands. She had a great manner and didn’t bring a big ego to everything, just a calm and confident manner. She tested everything she could think of to try and see if there was a discoverable reason for the miscarriages. She reported our results to us and explained what it meant from her perspective.
It was friendly and well organized [at Columbia University], I have no complaints. They seemed well run. You are likely to get blood drawn on a given visit so I guess hydrate before going and wear something warm to keep you and your veins warm while waiting. The wait was never too long, maybe 15 minutes...[Dr. Karipcin] tested everything she could think of to try and see if there was a discoverable reason for the miscarriages.

First, she [Dr. Karipcin] did diagnostics (including HSG) to determine that I had PCOS. Then she discussed my treatment options... she has done a great job of explaining the process, the risks, and the likelihood of success for each step...Dr. Karipcin is so warm and caring. She was really invested in my care. She cared about me and my husband... I especially appreciated that she provided me with a lot of information in writing
In the past, I've had calls get misdirected to the wrong voicemail, so my calls never got answered. I also had an appointment get scheduled for the wrong day. However, the clinic [Conceptions Florida] is clearly aware that they've had some problems with administrative staff in the past because my doctor brought it up with me and wanted me to know they are working on it. They are hiring and training new staff.
How was your experience with Sinem Karipcin at Conceptions Florida?
She's just an excellent doctor. Very knowledgeable and also caring. She always had time for me to discuss whatever I needed and answer my questions. I especially appreciated that she provided me with a lot of information in writing, so that I could go back and reference what we talked about. I always felt we were in the best hands with her.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sinem Karipcin at Conceptions Florida?
Share all of your concerns with her. She is open and very caring toward her patients and happy to take the time to give them the information and treatment they need.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sinem Karipcin at Conceptions Florida?
Dr. Karipcin is so warm and caring. She was really invested in my care. She cared about me and my husband. She helped us conceive our wonderful daughter and has always been so sweet to our baby girl when we bring her in the office. She has become like a friend to our family.
Describe the protocols Sinem Karipcin used in your cycles at Conceptions Florida and their degree of success.
First, she did diagnostics (including HSG) to determine that I had PCOS. Then she discussed my treatment options. I decided to go with IUI and Letrozole. She always walked me through the diagnostic and treatment procedures and made me feel at ease. The IUI/Letrozole protocol worked very well. On our second try, I conceived my daughter. Two years later, we tried the same procedure several times, but it hasn't worked (due to the fact that I am nearly 38 now). So, she recommended IVF (after making it clear that it was up to me how to proceed). We are in the middle of that process and she has done a great job of explaining the process, the risks, and the likelihood of success for each step. My husband and I have been very happy with our treatment under her care.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Conceptions Florida. (Assigned nurse: Alex Aviles)
Alex has been great. Very responsive. She is also warm and friendly. I always look forward to seeing her.
Describe your experience with Conceptions Florida.
The medical staff is excellent. My doctor, the nurses, all medical staff have been great. We have been very happy with them. The administrative staff has been more difficult to work with, especially the front desk. They often don't seem to know how to direct patients' calls. If you call and describe your question or situation, they don't seem to be able to say "oh, you need to speak to so-and-so" or "let me find out who you need to talk to." It can be frustrating because fertility treatments are so time-sensitive. If your call gets misdirected and you don't get a prompt response, you can miss a cycle. However, as long as you have the email address of your nurse or patient coordinator, it is very easy to communicate with them and they answer emails promptly.

Dr K was great at balancing facts with empathy. She explained the intricacies of fertility in an approachable way, and also all of the risks with any form of treatment. She repeatedly told me "you are the boss" and made me feel empowered to make decisions, she did not pressure or force treatment on me. Dr K understands the emotional side of fertility, which is incredibly important in this practice...Dr K highly advises against multiple embryo transfer
Columbia Fertility Clinic is a well oiled machine. I worked with 1 consistent patient care coordinator, 1 consistent financial coordinator, and 2-3 consistent nurses. We worked over email most of the time and they replied in a timely manner. The onsite nursing staff was also diligent. It was helpful to have specific contacts for different things...During my care I felt lots of reassurance, empathy, clear next steps, and good guidance. Of course, outcomes are never guaranteed but these things make the process SO much easier and better.
How was your experience with Sinem Karipcin at Columbia University?
From the beginning consultation, Dr K was great at balancing facts with empathy. She explained the intricacies of fertility in an approachable way, and also all of the risks with any form of treatment. She repeatedly told me "you are the boss" and made me feel empowered to make decisions, she did not pressure or force treatment on me. Dr K understands the emotional side of fertility, which is incredibly important in this practice.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sinem Karipcin at Columbia University?
Ask any questions you have. Dr K is very responsive and direct. Having more information will make you make the best decisions for yourself.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sinem Karipcin at Columbia University?
Dr K has an incredible bedside manner. She is friendly and upbeat, and not only cares about your fertility journey but your life outside of it. The staff at the clinic are also caring and considerate. I always felt I was being treated with thoughtfulness.
Describe the protocols Sinem Karipcin used in your cycles at Columbia University and their degree of success.
Oral medication (Letrozole) with trigger shot for IUI. 2 completed IUI cycles that were unsuccessful. Attempted 3rd IUI cycle that was not completed due to travel. IVF for egg retrieval, can't recall the specific medications. Egg retrieval and frozen transfer after ICSI, genetic testing. Single embryo transfer due to risk for multiples.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Columbia University. (Assigned nurse: Katrina Leong, Kristina Cudjoe, Diana Espinal)
Columbia Fertility Clinic is a well oiled machine. I worked with 1 consistent patient care coordinator, 1 consistent financial coordinator, and 2-3 consistent nurses. We worked over email most of the time and they replied in a timely manner. The onsite nursing staff was also diligent. It was helpful to have specific contacts for different things.
Describe your experience with Columbia University.
Columbia Fertility Clinic is efficient, organized, and welcoming. Location is easy to get to being near many subway lines, which can matter a lot when the fertility journey is so stressful. During my care I felt lots of reassurance, empathy, clear next steps, and good guidance. Of course, outcomes are never guaranteed but these things make the process SO much easier and better.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Columbia University.
Monitoring appointments were quick and easy, usually 15-20 minutes and never more than 30.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sinem Karipcin at Columbia University.
$35 copays, elected for out of pocket prescriptions $3-5K total, procedures mostly covered bye insurance.
Describe Sinem Karipcin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Columbia University.
Dr K highly advises against multiple embryo transfer, as her clinic has 50%+ success rate with each transfer. Additionally, because we had multiple embryo options, if the first transfer did not work, we were well positioned to try another transfer and not have to repeat an IVF cycle.
What specific things went wrong at Columbia University?
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to consider drug intolerance
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Columbia University.
Only one minor issue, which is that I have migraine with aura and was told by other doctors outside of this practice that I should avoid OBC with estrogen. This was overlooked during my treatment. It did not cause major issues or derail and treatment plans, however this is because I caught it and called the clinic to determine a solution. I want to emphasize this is the only issue I had during my care.

How was your experience with Sinem Karipcin at Columbia University?
The experience with Dr. K is outstanding. After 3 failed frozen embryo transfers at the previous clinic, Me and my partner were frustrated and unsure if we would ever be able to have children. Dr. K reviewed my records carefully and scheduled testing to rule out possible causes for my recurrent miscarriages. She was able to customize her treatment for my special case and eventually identify endometriosis in my uterus. After treating me with endometriosis she then proceeded with doing a frozen embryo transfer for me which resulted in a healthy and beautiful baby girl. She took time to explain and answer all my questions and call me to inform me of important testing results. She was warm, patient and compassionate which gave me hope and confidence during the whole process.
