We made appointment for initial consultation over a month in advance. Upon arrival at the scheduled date we were informed that our appointment does not exist, not even any information exist in their system in regards of our scheduled visit. We are both busy physicians, both had to take time from our practices in order to come for a visit. The staff at the front desk very overprotective, not willing to communicate, not friendly. The doctor was available and free of the patients at the time we showed up. In fact, he saw both of us accidentally in the waiting room and mentioned that it is great that we showed up earlier, he is able to see us early. However, the front desk person was not patient oriented, we felt more like she is interested in seeing less patients-less paperwork for her. She put a lot of energy by calling to their main office to prove that there is no way we can be seen today, and no appointment exist. Instead, she could just go and check if the physician is still willing to see us. Very disappointing experience. Unfriendly staff. Unorganized practice. Absence of communication between offices. There are different practices, obviously, to go for consultation. I am, as a physician myself, would never recommend to visit this practice.
WORST OFFICE AND DOCTOR! I was 34 y.o. with 3 y.o. son, conceived naturally. Then i had two miscarriages and decided to consult with a Reproductive Endocrinologist. I chose Dr. Kofinas clinic based on all positive reviews, this was the worst decision of my life. I had two unnecessary surgeries as recommended by the doctor. In case of emergency, i was not able to reach any doctor over the phone and when i showed up during the office hours to the office, I was initially told doctor does not have any time to see me. After waiting for over an hour, doctor did show up, with a horrible attitude... To make a long story short, after wasting 2 years on Kofinas office, i switched to Dr. Grazi and got pregnant during my second IVF cycle. Save your health, money and time - DO NOT choose Kofinas as your RE.
Dr. George Kofinas and all staff at the Kofinas Reproductive Center are amazing, dedicated, caring people. We were seeing another doctor in Manhattan who had no compassion or feelings, which is why we switched and met Dr. Kofinas.
He and his medical team care, and make you feel like a PATIENT, not like a CLIENT. Having infertility issues is overwhelming, and trusting your doctor is a very important part of achieving your goal. Dr. Kofinas and staff is your team backing you up, they're on your side, ever so helpful and patient. And Dr. Kofinas has magical hands, got me pregnant 2 times out of 2!
Dr. Kofinas and staff are wonderful. I was often at their office 2-3x/wk and although I went through the roster of dr's, they were always on top of my history and never missed a beat. And Dr. Kofinas or Dr. B were always available if I needed them directly. I called over the weekend once with a question and was able to speak to Dr. B right away. It's a bustling yet highly effective office and usually I was in and out in an hour. The nurses are all very friendly and even the local pharmacy (Greentree) they work with is great. It's helpful to have pharmacists who understand the procedures you are going through and can serve as another source of knowledge. I've now graduated onto Dr. Alexander Kofinas after my first successful IVF attempt with Dr. George Kofinas. What else can you ask for!?
The staff was always very professional. The doctors were eager to answer all my question. And address any concerns that I had. Dr Brzechffa was available to discuss my plan of care throughout my entire treatment process. I have and would highly recommend Dr. Kofinas and associates.
What can I say about the fertility institute I am so blessed to this establishment as they help assist me in conceiving my son, which is the joy of my life. The staff and doctors were amazing, thoughtful, and extremely helpful. I am forever grateful to this institute!!!!!
At the Fertility Institute, I always knew that I was in the best hands possible. The physicians were so professional and nurturing. The nurses were amazingly attentive and thoughtful. I felt like I was around family. This made my experience of several IVF attempts and procedures much more smooth and my fears were always soothed the moment I came into the institute. I felt like everyone was behind me, supporting me.
Dr. Kofinas and his team of doctors, nurses, and administrators are among the best medical team I've ever worked with, and I've lived in NYC my entire life with access to many wonderful doctors. Dr. Kofinas and his team successfully operated on me, relieving me from debilitating pain related to endometriosis, and successfully helped me get pregnant. I have never worked with a more professional, kinder group of doctors, nurses and administrators (and I'm pretty confident I met everyone who works there). Each person treated me with sensitivity and respect throughout both my surgery and fertility treatments. I never waited too long to see a nurse or doctor, and when I did have a small complication (OHSS), it was quickly diagnosed and treated. Dr. Kofinas, himself, is very kind and warm; he always greeted me with a smile and asked me how I was, and he personally performed every major part of my treatment. Even today, when I go in to the office to see Dr. Kofinas' brother for my pregnancy, the team from the Fertility Institute greet me and ask how everything is going. I highly recommend Dr. Kofinas and his team to anyone suffering from undiagnosed gynecological or fertility challenges.
