10/06/14 5 5 5 5 There are not enough kind words to say about Dr. Seifer. After my husband and I had a HORRIBLE experience at another fertility clinic, we felt so defeated after not conceiving after three embryo transfers. We decided to switch clinics and became patients of Dr. Seifer. He is INCREDIBLE. So knowledgable, does not waste your time and has a wonderful bedside manner. He makes you feel like you are his only patient and treats you with compassion and respect. Within two weeks he found our problem (other clinic did not find it after almost a YEAR and recommended I undergo an unnecessary surgery) and we are currently 8 weeks pregnant with twins after our FIRST round of IVF with Genesis. If all continues to go well, we will be leaving Dr. Seifer in a few weeks and moving onto an obgyn! My husband and I are so sad to leave Dr. Seifer! His knowledge and skills are unsurpassed and we will forever be grateful for the precious gift he has given us!

07/05/14 5 5 5 5 After 10 years of trying to get pregnant, and countless doctor visits, we decided to schedule an appointment with Dr. Seifer. Within a week of meeting Dr. Seifer, we were informed of all the underlying causes that have led to our infertility. For the first time in a while I felt like we finally met the right doctor. Once we knew the cause, Dr. Seifer provided us with different treatment options and identified the best option for our individual case. Most of all, what I liked about Dr. Seifer was that he was very proactive and direct about how to tackle each obstacle we faced, as well as very honest about what to expect. I’m proud to say that we are currently pregnant! I still can’t believe it. I just wish I had met Dr. Seifer earlier. He has been the only doctor who found the root of our problem, addressed it, and helped us move forward towards creating the miracle of life. I can’t even express the gratitude and happiness I currently feel in my heat. Thank you.  Respond

05/03/14 5 5 5 5 If you are having issues with fertility, this is the doctor to see. He is an absolute genius! My husband and I were referred to him by a friend of ours after we had gone to another fertility doctor who was a nightmare. Immediately Dr. Seifer knew the exact plan of action that would be right for us. My husband's sperm had very low motility and morphology and there was no other option for us than ICSI IVF. Dr. Seifer was there for us every step of the way. He treats you as if you are his only patient, and let me be clear you are definitely not. Dr. Seifer is extremely busy for a reason...because he's the BEST! He held my hand throughout my entire cycle. Also, I cannot speak more highly of his staff. The nurses are the best in the business. They are on call for you 24/7. I really cannot say enough great things about our experience. I am currently 10 weeks pregnant with twins and I owe it all to Dr. Seifer and his staff.

09/01/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Seifer is very personable and friendly with great bedside manner. He made my husband and I feel very comfortable throughout the entire experience. It was the first time that we had visited a fertility doctor and really didn’t know what to expect. Dr. Seifer made sure that all of our questions were answered and gave us all the time we needed – it made us feel very relaxed and not just rushed in and out of his office. We knew after our very first appointment that we had made the right decision in choosing Dr. Seifer to guide us through our journey of starting a family. I would highly recommend Dr. Seifer to a friend.  Respond

He never played games or sugarcoated anything..he always got right to the point. And what I appreciated so much was that every once in a while, he called me to make sure that I was okay and to reassure me that I was on the most effective path. The staff at Genesis was always so kind and accommodating. They always returned my calls promptly and helped me. The nurses were amazing. They were always available to answer my questions or give me support. The nurses were friendly and sensitive to my needs and they were highly knowledgeable.I did get pregnant a few months ago and so far, so good. Yay! God willing, everything will be great and my baby will be healthy and beautiful.I highly recommend Dr. Seifer and Genesis Fertility to anyone who is having fertility issues. SO THANKFUL

07/10/13 1 3 1 3 During our first consultation Dr. Seifer didn't even sit down and so the conversation felt rushed. He seemed annoyed every visit and was short with us. He diagnosed us and immediately suggested IVF even though we could've tried IUI first. Decided that for such a sensitive situation he wasn't the doctor for us. The nicest person I encountered at that office was his assistant. We went elsewhere and turns out we were misdiagnosed by Dr. Seifer and we're now expecting our first baby after a 2nd IUI.

13/04/13 1 3 1 1 Absolutely horrible place. Do not go here to Genesis. I made an appointment to freeze my sperm and they claimed they didn't know about it so the specimen could not be frozen. They nickel and dime you to death with fees; one fee of $300 was for the PGD specialist to go through a PowerPoint with us. I can look at a PowerPoint myself for free. There is a sign at the receptionist desk warning you that you have to pay a fee if you use your charge card; in NYS this is an illegal practice but Genesis doesn't seem to care much for the law. Their billing coordinator makes you feel like you just got detention in the principal's office and gives you wrong information about your insurance coverage. When I pointed this out to her, she got really nasty to me. Dr. Seifer tried to strong arm us into getting genetic testing (for extra fees of course) which we did not want to do.My wife and I ran out of there and will never go back.

12/04/13 5 5 5 5 My husband and I went to Dr. Seifer afraid that we would never be able to have children of our own. Dr. Seifer tested us both and explained to us our problems, he then came up with a game plan for us to get pregnant. Dr. Seifer is very to the point, some people may not like that, but I would rather be told the truth especially when it comes to fertility issues. We started our first IVF cycle in September 2012, there were times when things were not progressing like they should, but Dr. Seifer always called me and explained the situation. Dr. Seifer never gave up and my husband and I will forever be grateful. I am now 27 weeks pregnant with a baby boy. All of the other staff from front desk to lab to nurses are all great.

13/12/12 5 5 5 5 Dr Seifer saved my family months of lost time and heartache. My first trip to Genesis I was unsure if I would vibe with Dr Seifer. After opening up to him I was immediately at ease and it was clear that he cared about getting a positive result but also about me and my husband. After my first IVF ended in an early miscarriage DR Seifer took aggressive action and ordered genetic testing of both me and my husband (normally this type of testing is only ordered for people who have had multiple miscarriages). The test showed a small genetic issue that would require PGD to avoid repeated miscarriages. Thanks to Dr Seifer we are now expecting on our very next cycle! The nurses at Genesis are great and friendly. I cant suggest this office and doctor enough. Thank you!

31/08/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Seifer and everybody at the Genesis Fertility Clinic are truly caring professionals! When we first came to Dr. Seifer we were very nervous. Dr. Seifer ran neccessary tests (key word being neccessary) and discussed with us our options. He put all the cards on the table and told us that our best chance to have a baby is via IVF. During the whole IVF process which is pretty nerve wrecking, Dr. Seifer and everybody at Genesis were absolutely amazing! IVF nurses are there to answer any (key word any) questions that you have 24/7. Before coming to Dr. Seifer we went to another doctor, big mistake, he wanted to do bunch of tests on me which i did not feel comfortable about, he was treating me like a standard infertility case and i did not like that. Dr. Seifer only ran those tests that were absolutely neccessary. Genesis makes you feel like a real person/an individual, they are there for you and with you during this journey! I would highly recommend Dr. Seifer and Genesis!

Dr Seifer will work with you to determine the best plan of action for your needs. He gave me a beautiful baby boy from my first IVF cycle and now I am 11 weeks pregnant with my second child after a successful single embryo transfer. Everyone at the clinic is extremely professional and courteous. The clinic is very clean, has available parking, and flexible morning and weekend hours.

13/07/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Seifer is one of the most caring and genuine doctors that I have come across. Having been a drug rep for 10 years, I have met many doctors. Dr. Seifer is brilliant, caring and professional. He treats patients with respect and concern. The genesis facility is run very smooth. All testing and procedures are done on the premises which is convenient and discreet. Dr. Seifer went above and beyond for me as we had many obstacles. He was honest and did not give me false hope but rather realistic expectations. The whole staff at genesis is courteous, knowledgeable and respectful. At all times I felt I was getting the very best care and the utmost attention. When the nurse called to tell me I was pregnant, I knew she was genuinely excited for me. I was not just a "chart". I highly recommend Dr. Seifer and genesis without hesitation. My only regret is that I cannot have Dr. Seifer as my ob/gyn for my entire pregnancy..love, love him!!

I will forever be greatful however it is important that people understand that outcomes can not always be positive when dealing with infertility issues.What you will ALWAYS get however is a doctor who is professional, knowledgeable and kind and an experience that does not leave you feeling regretful or full of questions.EVERYONE there is professional and an expert at what they do.From the person who you check in with to the nurses that call you to let you know if you are pregnant - they all make you feel comfortable.I began broken and beaten(I had two prior ectopics and lost both tubes) but came out with an education on my options.Dr. Seifer was honest and provided me guidance through the process.Someone is always available to answer and the best part is that even though the Dr. and the staff have probably heard every questions a million times-they still makes yours important.

12/08/11 5 5 5 5 Superlatives cannot begin to describe the kind of meticulous care, professionalism and breadth of knowledge that Dr. Seifer offers his patients. My husband, also a physician, and I came to Dr. Seifer with the highest expectations. We discovered that his repertoire in innovative research made him particularly stand out not only as a highly qualified clinical practitioner, but also as a major contributor to the science itself and to the education of other physicians. In spite of biology’s unpredictable monkey wrenches, Dr. Seifer mitigated what could have been potentially devastating news with his compassionate countenance and optimistic alternatives for achieving the same end. His humanity, sensitivity and sense of humor made the entire process personal and manageable. The path may have been unforeseen and unexpected, but Dr. Seifer shepherded us toward what has now become a successful pregnancy. He has indeed exceeded our expectations professionally and interpersonally.  Respond

19/05/11 5 5 5 5 We were recommended to Genesis Fertility by my OB/GYN. We spoke of our struggles and Dr. Siefer discussed in detail the different steps we could take. After my results from tests, he told us the options we had and the potential outcome. It was just as important to him as it was to us to have a healthy embryo.We chose IVF and took a great IVF class. The nurses and doctors reviewed with couples all the details of IVF and how to give shots. With every step, Dr.Seifer and his staff were there supporting me with any questions I may have had. Always informative,caring and hopeful. I attended tests at both SI and the Brooklyn offices and received the best attention. During the process, I produced 3 eggs, 2 made it to fertilization and implanted back. Dr. Seifer again discussed my options and outcomes after implantation and gave me different scenarios. I can’t thank Dr. Seifer and the staff enough. Not only did I have a successful IVF but I was well taken care of, physically and emotionally.

18/01/11 5 5 5 5 I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Seifer and Genesis Fertility Center. He has an incredibly warm, confidence-inspiring manner and took large amounts of time to consult with me and/ or my husband at every stage of my treatment. I have many friends and relatives who have undergone fertility treatments and IVF specifically, and all doctors do not share the same approach. Two specific ways that Dr. Seifer is exceptional is the ethical manner in which he approaches infertility and the individualized course of treatment his patients receive. Dr. Seifer's stated goal is the conception (and healthy birth) of one healthy baby, which was very important to me. Dr. Seifer also paid close attention to every test result and adjusted my medicines as needed. In contrast, I have friends who underwent (unsuccessful)IVF cycles who did not test as frequently. My impression is that Dr. Seifer controlled every variable, and this attention to detail was a major reason we were successful on the first cycle.

07/12/10 5 5 5 5 I can't say enough about Dr. Seifer & the team at Genesis. Most people travel to Manhattan for what they consider premium care, but having consulted with IVF doctors in NYC, I can assure you, you won't find better than Dr. Seifer & Genesis. You are not one of the masses here, but a person, a patient that the staff comes to know. Mine and my husband's issues were diagnosed quickly and within a time frame I was comfortable with, together with Dr. Seifer, we implemented a fertility plan and began treatment. I am currently pregnant from our first IVF cycle. I completely trusted Dr. Seifer with the future of my family and he and the staff at Genesis did everything they could to reassure me that we were on the right path. Early morning hours make it easy to get to work on time and 24/7 IVF nurse consultation means every question is answered no matter what time. Save yourself a trip to NYC and hours in a waiting room just to have your name forgotten.

When I went into the clinic for the first time, I had been trying to get pregnant for a year and a half with no success. Even after being put on fertility drugs from my gyn. I went to see Dr Seifer for the first time in July 2008. He was very thorough and started testing right away for the issues at hand. Every visit with him was pleasant and informative. After all the results were back, he recommended to me to do the IUI procedure. I was fortunate to get pregnant the first time! That was January of 2009.

Since so many of us are extremely emotional about why we see Dr. Seifer, I attribute all of the negative posts to women (me included) who become emotional about having trouble conceiving. Dr. Seifer was honest and compassionate. He could have easily talked me into having IVF, but he did just the opposite. He dissuaded me and told me my test results showed that there would be little chance of success. The options he gave me were wonderful. I am so glad I chose to see him.  Respond

31/05/10 5 5 5 5 I have been a patient at Genesis Fertility for the past 8 months. The facility is immaculate. Dr. Seifer is by far the shining star at the facility. He is the doctor that we wish we encountered everytime we enter a medical office. His patience is incredible. He takes the time to explain every last detail of every single procedure to ensure that we understood exactly what was going on and what might happen next. In the middle of an IVF cycle when a rare complication occurred, Dr. Seifer showed up at the hospital himself to perform the unexpected surgery. He carefully supervised my recovery and called us every hour on the hour to just "check-in". His dedication to my case alone speaks volumes to his dedication to the rest of his patients. After months and months of believing I would never see two pink lines on a pregnancy test, Dr. Seifer has made it possible. His determination is unreal! I only wish he were able to deliver our future child who will be born this fall!!

Dr. Seifer turned and incredibly stressful time, into a more calm and manageable one (I didn't think that was possible!). His kindness and compassion go beyond measure. You feel like he knows you, you are more than a patient in a way - you are like a family friend that receive that extra attention. Dr. Seifer made our dreams come true.

17/02/10 5 5 5 5 After trying 3 IUIs and 4 IVF cycles with another doctor, we saw Dr. Seifer’s ad. We figured let’s give it one more try. So we went to see Dr. Seifer. He was very nice and honest about our options and success rates. He did not guarantee any success but convinced us to be hopeful. We did not have much hope after 7 failed cycles so we were especially joyful when we found out that we indeed got pregnant at the first try with twins. During our entire IVF cycle Dr. Seifer’s staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. The office hours are very convenient and we were able to do most of the appointments before work. The nurses were readily available for questions and never seemed annoyed or made me feel like I bothered them. Dr. Seifer explained all procedures openly and addressed any concerns we had.

10/03/09 1 2 1 1 Extremely unhelpful. Not informed by his nursing staff. Called me and actually asked me, "What bloodwork did you get done again?" Very pro- IVF. His staff called me infertile when in fact, there is no certainty of that at this early stage. Did no tests at that point before saying that. Always late. Never returned test results. Had to chase down for results. Had to ASK questions so I got correct response. I've had a cyst for some time and he never told me - his staff knew, too. Finally said, "well, you know about the cyst..." UM? WHAT?! I HAVE A CYST?! The list goes on. TOTAL baby factory there. RUN the other way. They want to IVF you because it is good money for them.

He and his staff were total unaccommodating. When I explained to his secretary (Sherylynn) that I would not be able to come in so early in the morning because of work (I am a teacher, and cannot come in late everyday for bloodwork) she said to me, "You're going to have to think about what you want more, your job or your baby?!" I was appauled at her insesitivity. Afternoon hours or weekend hours do not exist in that place. It was actually amusing to see this facility advertise in the New York Teacher newspaper, since they are unaccommodating to this clientele.

15/04/07 3 2 3 Dr. Seifer was efficient in performing all tests. I feel like he knows what he's talking about, however I always felt rushed with each appointment lasting 5-7 minutes. Also, he does not accomodate people that work. His office hours are from 7:00--1:30pm. It is impossible to get an appointment after those hours and there are no weekend hours. Genesis Fertility is like a meat market. Unfortunately, I did not feel like they cared about the situation that I was in. All of the women there were struggling with infertility and I was just another number. I would only use this facility you do not have a job or you work evenings because they can not and will not accomodate you.
