Describe your experience with New York Fertility Services.
Nice, clean environment with a smiling face greeting you at the desk. Never long wait time.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
When I was there I felt that there was a lot of turnover. At one point, a nurse drawing my blood said it was her first time doing so, and after a try or 2 she went to get the PA to draw my blood.
I felt that the nurse who explained how to do the injections could have been clearer.
Overall., they were nice and compassionate.

How was your experience with Ilana Ressler?
Ilana was very thorough and explained all options. I received a follow up email after every appointment summarizing what was discussed. I felt confident in Dr. Ressler's recommendations, though felt that personality wise, she was not super warm.

Describe the protocols Ilana Ressler used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I had been to a doctor previously who felt that symptoms should be treated, so I was on meds to regulate blood-sugar, even though the levels weren't tested. Ilana Ressler immediately told me to stop the treatment until we determined what the issues were. Once I was tested, she explained that the levels were fine and the meds were unnecessary. Dr ressler prescribed Menopur and then timed intercourse after taking an injection to trigger ovulation. I was monitored daily/every other day while taking Menopur (injections) and she increased amounts based on hormone levels. Thankfully, the cycle was successful and I have a beautiful daughter :)
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ilana Ressler.
They took insurance, so I was only billed copays.
