Dr. Arroyo is a very kind man and explains things thoroughly. He and his wife also went through infertility, so he understands what we're going through. He is very diplomatic and doesn't have super strong opinions, but does offer occasional advice. I do wish there was more direct communication. I usually have to talk to a nurse, who then talks to him, and then gets back to me.... I actually get to see him during visits unlike my other doctor.
Boston IVF – Syracuse is very clean, and they are usually on time with appointments. It's still a fairly new clinic... The nursing staff is ok. There aren't that many. They are friendly, but they don't really go above and beyond what their job is.... The ultrasound tech and nurse had conflicting info...TWICE on how thick my lining was and how many follicles/size.... It's not super convenient because you have to get bloodwork and ultrasounds before 10 am

How was your experience with Armando Arroyo at Boston IVF - The Albany Center?
Dr. Arroyo is a very kind man and explains things thoroughly. He and his wife also went through infertility, so he understands what we're going through. He is very diplomatic and doesn't have super strong opinions, but does offer occasional advice. I do wish there was more direct communication. I usually have to talk to a nurse, who then talks to him, and then gets back to me. But I think it's that way in a lot of cases.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Armando Arroyo at Boston IVF - The Albany Center?
Dr. Arroyo is very friendly, and I actually get to see him during visits unlike my other doctor.
Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at Boston IVF - The Albany Center and their degree of success.
2 timed intercourse with Letrozole (no trigger). In the middle of first IUI cycle with Letrozole and trigger. I previously went through 2 IUI cycles and 1 egg retrieval and 4 transfers at a previous clinic. I took some time off, and we're kind of starting over again since my body seems to want to try to work again. So far, I have only gotten negative results, and my luteal phase is shorter on these protocols.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff is ok. There aren't that many. They are friendly, but they don't really go above and beyond what their job is.
Describe your experience with Boston IVF - The Albany Center.
Boston IVF – Syracuse is very clean, and they are usually on time with appointments. It's still a fairly new clinic, so I don't think they have too many patients yet. It's not super convenient because you have to get bloodwork and ultrasounds before 10 am, and they don't have a lot of really early appointments, which makes it difficult with work schedules. I usually see nurses when I go, and rarely the doctor.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Armando Arroyo at Boston IVF - The Albany Center.
All treatment so far has been covered by insurance (IUI, testing, drugs, etc.)

I have only been treatment by Armando a few times. But every experience I have had with him have been great! He took time to explain everything in detail to me and continually reassured me. Straight from my consultation he took me right in to do my initial tests and told me I was a good candidate to start fertility treatments. He did the tube test and showed me that my tubes were clear. He was very positive and made me feel comfortable.
CNY buffalo has the most amazing nursing staff I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Kris Ziegler in particular has been absolutely amazing to me. She has gone above and beyond to make sure I had the right care. She has even referred me to specialist and has gone out of her way to get me in contact with any resources I may need. The whole team is extremely compassionate and make me feel like this is a team effort and that I am not alone.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
Just expect to spend more time with nurses than Armando.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
I have worked closely with the nurse Kris Ziegler at CNY. She has been absolutely amazing. She takes time to explain what is going on and has referred me to specialists. She is the first doctor in my lifetime who I believe cares and is trying to figure out what is going on with me.
Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at CNY Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Prior to coming to CNY I did multiple medicated and monitored cycle with my gnyo before being referred to CNY. After initial testing and consultation everything came back good. Although, I was diagnosed with PCOS. The first step was a medicated cycle with monitoring and intercourse. That ended in a negative. I didn't respond well to letrozole so I was moved to injections. I started gonal for 2-3 more cycles with no luck as it was tricky trying to get the right dosage for with my PCOS. We have had to cancel a few cycles based on having too many eggs and/or not having a mature egg. I am now ready to move onto IVF.

Describe your experience with CNY Fertility Center.
CNY's strength are how compassionate they are. They take the necessary time with their patients to make sure they get the best care possible. The clinic itself is beautiful, you do not feel like you are in a doctors office but a spa. The only weakness I can thing of is the wait time but that doesn't bother me because I know they are giving other patients the same care and attention they give me.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center.
Each IUI cycle cost around $1,500, medicated cycle was around $1,000. IVF will cost around $8,000-10,000 I have spent around $8,000 to date on fertility treatments.

He [Dr. Armando Arroyo] knew exactly who we were and what our details were at every visit...I had a very tricky schedule as I had moved to Canada before transfer. He was very good about arranging phone calls and making a protocol easier for travel. He is warm and always seemed happy to see us...Trust that he is part of a larger, highly successful team. He knows the latest research and is open to talking through your ideas. You have a voice in the path ahead. He is an interlocutor, not an authoritarian.
The main nurse [at Boston IVF Syracuse], Jill, was wonderful. First, there is one main nurse! At my last clinic, you saw a new person every visit. This clinic offers a single contact person which makes things MUCH easier. Jill knew exactly what our plan was and was always quick to get back to me to help organize meds etc. I "graduated" from the clinic at week 8 and she continues to email to check on us every three weeks!...This is a new clinic with a great staff. Abby at the front desk is cheerful and Mel is a wonderful embryologist who spent a bit of time to assist with moving my embryos across town and then prepping them for transfer. The blood and ultrasound team is also small, so you see the same faces often and they are all very good!

How was your experience with Armando Arroyo at Boston IVF?
He really gives patients the respect they deserve. I am a professor and I felt like my last clinic spoke to me like I was dumb all the time. Dr. Arroyo assumed I was knowledgeable and engaged with any research I had done and never dismissed it. We had good conversations and we felt very confident that we made a good choice to move clinics. I had a very tricky schedule as I had moved to Canada before transfer. He was very good about arranging phone calls and making a protocol easier for travel. He is warm and always seemed happy to see us.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Armando Arroyo at Boston IVF?
Dr. Arroyo is a good mix of understanding and straightforward. He sat with us and looked at our results and talked to us about a treatment plan for my situation. At my last clinic most women were on the same protocol with a dozen medications. Dr. Arroyo showed me why I didn't need most of them. I spoke to him more in my six months at this clinic than I spoke to my previous specialist in 2.5 years. He called regularly as we organized moving embryos from another clinic. He attended most of my ultrasounds and helped me understand how things were progressing. He knew exactly who we were and what our details were at every visit.
Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at Boston IVF and their degree of success.
This was my third frozen transfer (not PGS tested embryos). We debated another stim plus PGS of all, but I wasn't up for it. I had a lap/hysteroscopy before and that could explain success. I did a longer estrogen protocol than I was used to. My lining wasn't great so we gave it an extra week. I was on progesterone suppositories and shots (only ever 3 nights) up to 10 weeks pregnant. My previous transfers at another clinic I was on a dozen medications, many out of pocket and thousands of dollars. It was great to have fewer meds to keep track of. I made the process less stressful. We had two frozen day 3 embryos. Transferred 2 and now 19 weeks with a singleton!

I am very fortunate to have excellent insurance. My co-pay for visits was 20$ They did not recommend anything not covered by my insurance.

How was your experience with Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
I first went to see an RE in June 2017 after trying for 2 years with no positive outcomes. My 1st appointment was with Mr. Arroyo and I felt like he understood what I wanted about this treatment, I wanted to be included and feel like a human and not just some random person. Dr. Arroyo answered all my questions and concerns and was available when I needed. After my miscarriage I went back to see the doctor, 5 months later, and once again he came equipped with all the tools I needed for the new journey ahead. He answered all my questions and concerns, he even brought questions of his own for me which made me feel like he cared about me as a person.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
Dr. Arroyo is a wonderful person, do not be afraid to ask questions as there is no stupid question, just unanswered doubts.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
CNY makes me feel at home, they know me by name and they know my story. When I call they always answer with a smile on their face and they never cease to amaze me. They are willing to answer all my questions and go over everything my brain can think of.
Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at CNY Fertility Center and their degree of success.
When I first started this journey, we started using Femara along with the prenatals, baby aspirin and prednisone, this was done for the 1st 5 iui's which one of them resulted in a pregnancy which later turned into a miscarriage. After the miscarriage, the doctor did not want to do pills anymore as he believe my body would not react the same way so we switched to injectables, Gonal-f and monitoring every other day until at least 1 or 2 follicles were over 18mm then doing another iui. As of today we have included clomid along with injectables to give my body other options since they have not been working up to now.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff at CNY Rochester is amazing. I absolutely adore these ladies. They take their time when I am there, they make sure I know all the how's, when's, where's and why's before I leave the office and they have always been available when I've had questions or problems with insurance. They are warm hearted and so kind.
Describe your experience with CNY Fertility Center.
CNY Rochester is an amazing clinic, with so many add-on benefits. I love the fact that they open as early as 630am which makes it so much easier for me to go before going to work and they are always available to work around my schedule for iui and bloodworks. I would love for the Rochester site to be able to do more of the surgical procedures as Syracuse is about 90mins away.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center.
After meeting my $3000 deductible all prescriptions and IUI are covered 100%. My insurance covers medications at $70 each as they are 3rd tier medications. An IUI out of pocket would be around $600 without insurance including the sperm wash. So far I have spent around $7000 in a year and half of treatment without doing IVF.

He was very sympathetic to me for my recent loss. Also for the reason of my infertility. He explained what treatment course I should take before I went on to try IVF. Dr Arroyo made me have the feeling of not giving up on becoming pregnant. ... He suggested I try two more IUI cycles before I moved on the IVF. I would also start using injectable medication instead of pili form.
I always understand what I need to do when I leave the office. I feel more relaxed and more like a person with the staff at CNY. ... Only once I did not receive all call for my STAT blood work. But It could of been because I went to an outside lab. I'm not blaming the staff on that. ... I was always greeted when I walked in the door by my name. I never had to be asked who I am.

Describe your experience with CNY Fertility Center.
The environment is very warm and inviting. It does not feel whatsoever like a Doctors office. I would actually go bare foot in the office. The staff are always so friendly and they know you by name. I never feel rushed like I am on an Assembly line when I have my appointments. I love the fact when I go CNY there is not thirty people in the waiting room. Also they work with your appointment times because it is not easy working a full time job having to leave during work.

Dr. took the time to discuss protocol, medications, answer questions,.discuss results,.discuss next steps after miscarriage, and didn't rush us off the phone. Seemed genuine in his care for us and our wishes.... 350 gonal f , ldn, prednisone, cleocin, zpack, with bloodwork and ultrasound monitoring 3 days before trigger. Went to new york for egg retrieval. Started fresh transfer meds including progesterone and estradiol. Transferred 2 day 4 embryos. Successful pregnancy witg twins and miscarried at 7 weeks
I was extremely happy with clinic [at CNY-Syracuse] and staff at retrieval but not impressed with staff at transfer. Transfer staff was not thorough and I was not informed of what was happening. We were left in the room after transfer with no directions and no one checked on us for over 10 minutes. We ended up leaving the room and still no one checked on us. I had acupuncture before and after transfer which was great.

The nurses I had talked with were very caring. There were times when I would get conflicting answers and was confused. Also, it is hard to get a hold of or get a call back from a nurse after leaving a message. I used the patient portal most of the time which I received faster results.

He [Dr. Armando Arroyo] sat with me for quite a while and talked to me as a friend. Very smiley and confident that he can help. He is very assuring and helped me feel better as well. When we went through my procedure he was very patient and explained everything both before during and after the procedure. Dr. A has a great personality and passion for what he does.
It [CNY-Buffalo] is beautiful, peaceful, and very clean! It is also comforting and very homeish. The waiting room has a fire place and tea and coffee, beautiful pairings and sculptures. The consult rooms have cozy chairs and couches. The colors are very easy and comforting as well... The nursing staff and receptionist are all so awesome, very kind and understanding. Some times they are understaffed though

Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at CNY Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Dr. Arroyo talked with me for over an hour during my initial visit.

I know that we are not I fertile, but my husband and I are both carriers for Spinal Muscular Atrophy, as our daughter, Saydee passed away from respiratory failure in 2016. Dr. A also ordered genetic testing for both my husband and I, to help uncover which genes are affected. We will be utilizing pre genetic diagnosis with invetro fertilization in the near future.

The nursing staff and receptionist are all so awesome, very kind and understanding. Some times they are understaffed though

Dr Arroyo listened to us, what we want, and answered our questions. He did not talk over us, make us feel stupid, or give us false hope. He explained everything from potential options to finances. His answers were not cookie cutter and they felt honest and personal.... Dr Arroyo requested my husband see a urologist and that I have an ultrasound to show if my tubes were open. He wanted to make sure that I was not an additional factor. He believed my husband needed additional testing due to his extremely low sperm count. He offered options for us such as freezing sperm now.
The clinic [CNY Fertility Center-Hamburg] is extremely clean, relaxing, and beautiful. It is designed ideally for creating a calm environment where anyone would feel relaxed. I did not find any weaknesses. I really enjoyed my visit each time I have gone, even when I have been nervous.... He advised that if we went with ivf, it would be around $850 for testing, $3000 for meds that would need to be paid up front, and $4000 for the extraction and transfer which could be spread out over 1-2 years. The nurse talked to me about compassionate care.

How was your experience with Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
We are in the very beginning stages and have only been to the clinic a couple of times but each time was great. The clinic itself was nice and the dr was great. He did my ultrasound and testing and was fantastic. He assured me the whole way, kept me updated, and asked if I was ok multiple times throughout the process which really made me feel better.

How was your experience with Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
Dr. Arroyo is a very compassionate doctor, who has made my husband and I very comfortable with the process and hopeful of our desired results. He is extremely knowledgeable and makes sure to go over every detail with us. He has always been available to answer any questions that we may have had. Our situation has been very complex, with many roadblocks and a long history of unsuccessful transfers. We switched to him because of referrals of friends and wanted to feel as if we mattered and our situation was special. He made us feel as if we were his focus and his only patients, each and every time we worked with him! He's simply amazing!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
To be prepared with all the questions that you may have for him, as he will certainly take the time to answer them all and make sure that you are comfortable with the steps that he puts in place.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
Dr. Arroyo really took the time to understand is, our history, and what has worked and hasn't. He also has helped us understand our journey better, and put an actionable plan in place of what can be done better & differently in order to achieve m maximum success.
Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at CNY Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Well, we are in the very earliest stages of working with him, but so far, he thoroughly has gone through our history, what has worked and hasn't. He discovered that I had damaged fallopian tubes and fibroids that were causing my miscarriages and suggested that I have them removed. Due to that advice, the doctors discovered that I had the very earliest stage of cancer on one of my ovaries, so I had that removed as well, which very well could have saved my life, down the road. We are going to be doing the hormones and injections this month, in order to retrieve eggs, to make embryos. He did a lot of bloodwork, looking for genetic factors, that hasn't been done in the past, by other doctors. He checked my husband's sperm, and also suggested genetic testing on the embryos, when we do make them. He has been thorough with my healing process of my 2 surgeries, making sure that my uterus and lining healed properly and that it will provide for the best possible outcome in this procedure.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
All of the nurses that work with Dr. Arroyo have been amazing. They have been kind, gentle, sensitive, and compassionate, making us feel important and unique. They have always gotten back to us, in a timely manner, answered any questions that we may have, and have been extremely helpful in explaining the steps needed and what to expect.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center.
Costs were average and/or below average compared to other doctors that we've seen. The nice thing about CNY-Buffalo is that they allow you to do a payment plan, which has afforded us the opportunity to do these ivf procedures considering our financial status. It has been a tremendous blessing!
Describe Armando Arroyo's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at CNY Fertility Center.
We haven't gotten to the point of actual embryo transfer, with him, yet, however, he has stated that if I have really good looking embryos that he wouldn't be opposed to multiple transfers (due to my age) and freezing any that I have left, for future possible dates.

How was your experience with Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
When I first met him he seemed more like a laid back chill almost hippie like doctor. After talking with him for a bit I realized that his laid back calm nature was pleasant. He took time to discuss the process and the why. It was a nice change to feel like you were talking to a friend opposed to a medical doctor who is very hurried and on a schedule and very mechanical. Dr arroyo I feel is compassionate and aware of the sensitivity of infertility and understands most women have come there after many many months of trying and failing. A lot of times doctors don’t understand the desperation women have with wanting a baby so badly. I feel doctor arroyo gets it.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
Don’t be thrown off by how laid back he comes across he is not like regular OB/gyn you have been seeing
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
He was very kind and not rushed he took his time explained things thoroughly and is very reassuring.
Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at CNY Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I was found to have a very low egg reserve, so doctor arroyo reassured me that I still have thousands of eggs and not to worry. It just means we have to double the normal dose of injectable medications. First we did an hsg to make sure my tubes were open so that we weren’t wasting money with medications to make me ovulate for an egg that won’t be able to travel down the tubes if blocked. Once that was all set we started the meds and I had good response and made the goal of 2 follicles. Once they reached maturity we did the trigger shot so we can then Time when to come in for the iui which was the next day. We are currently in our two week wait window hopefully the results are positive

Luckily I am a nurse and can read lab results with exception to what a good AMH and sperm sample is. So I would sway be more proactive on calling patients with the results before they can see them and worry
Describe the costs associated with your care under Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center.
So far costs haven’t been high just got my first bill and it is much lower than expected. Medications were higher than anticipated but he was very honest on how mich things would cost

In my case I have pcos and unexplained infertility. I was in my early 20’s and with nothing else wrong besides pcos he [Dr. Arroyo] thought we would get pregnant no problem with IUI. However after 5 failed IUI’s that wasnt the case at all. So that was a bit frustrating to have so much hope that it would work no problem but then not work at all.... Other than that I thought he was really easy to talk to and gave me all the information I wanted about procedures and possible other options.
Everyone there [CNY]... was absolutely amazing except for 2 people. One was a nurse and one was a nurse practitioner (i think) anyway the one nurse everytime it was her i just cringed because she could never find my vein!... Strengths: Atmosphere(smell, decor, lighting, people) is amazing i always felt so calm and peaceful. Easy making appointments and feeling like your a vip patient. Weaknesses: Really only those 2 staff members I had a harder time with but even then they were really nice just not as amazing as the others!

However after 5 failed IUI’s that wasnt the case at all. So that was a bit frustrating to have so much hope that it would work no problem but then not work at all. (Not that it was his fault, no one knows why i wasnt getting pregnant.) Other than that I thought he was really easy to talk to and gave me all the information I wanted about procedures and possible other options. He of course offered me IVF as well but its a lot more expensive and not covered by insurance so that was the gamble we took and lost. He also didnt make me feel rushed. He calmly waited and talked with my husband and me until we were satisfied.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
Just because your young and otherwise healthy doesnt mean something has a high chance of working.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
He had a really good bedside manner and took the time to really explain to me what my best options were. I felt confidant that he knew what he was doing and answered all my questions.
Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at CNY Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Im sorry I cant remember the specifics because I did my IUI’s so long ago. Roughly, they had to start by inducing a period. (I was also taking 4 pills of metformin(to help with regulation of insulin), coq10(to help egg quality) ovasitol(again improve egg quality), prenatal, mini asprin) Then they gave me femara (i believe) to start my overys growing eggs. The dosage was the standard level they start at and that was enough for my body. Since im polycystic they were always worried i would pop out more than 1 egg so they monitored me very carefully and almost had to cancel a cycle or 2 because they thought i had more than 2 mature eggs. Once they decided the eggs were ready i injected a dose of the LH (i think) to cause me to ovulate. Then they inseminated me and started me on progesterone to help sustain it if it worked. In my case they never worked, not even a chemical pregnancy. So i tried 5 times until i decided ivf was the next best option for me and it worked on the 1st try.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
So obviously over the course of treatments there are A LOT of blood draws and needles. Everyone there (of the ones that worked with me there were probably about 8 total) was absolutely amazing except for 2 people. One was a nurse and one was a nurse practitioner (i think) anyway the one nurse everytime it was her i just cringed because she could never find my vein! One time was really bad and she dug around in there 3 or 4 times before she finally got it. My arm was SO sore it killed. But the other nurses were the complete opposite amazing. So good at drawing blood it was basically pain free and left no bruise. (Which is crucial when you are getting your blood drawn every few days.) Then the one nurse practitioner did not have a good bedside manner like she seemed un empathetic if that makes sense. No empathy for the struggle it was to have non stop poking and prodding, hope one minute misery the next. Also everytime we asked her a question the answer was very clipped and not complete. Then the other 2 were again the complete opposite, warm, friendly, amazing strength that they gave my husband and I.
Describe your experience with CNY Fertility Center.
Strengths: Atmosphere(smell, decor, lighting, people) is amazing i always felt so calm and peaceful. Easy making appointments and feeling like your a vip patient. Weaknesses: Really only those 2 staff members I had a harder time with but even then they were really nice just not as amazing as the others! It would be nice if I could have requested not to get them. In the end it was almost as of i did because i had a favorite nurse who is hands down the best blood drawer in the world. She knew that she was my favorite so if she saw me on the schedule for the day she would always make sure she was the one to take care of me! It made SUCH a huge difference! To a new patient: GO there immediately! They are the absolute best of that ai have no doubt! They are VERY reasonable with the price and are the lowest ive seen anywhere. Also it is the highest quality care i actually miss going there multiple times a week.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center.
For the IUI’s I think half was covered under my insurance. I had a $70 copay every office visit (which was prob like 8 or 9 times) Then drugs were about another $500-$1000 each cycle

His [Armando Arroyo] very soft spoken and speaks very kindly. He took the time to answer questions and make sure that we understood everything. I can't say that he is overly compassionate, But he is very realistic in his expectations of treatment. If he does not think something is going to work he will Tell you that he does not think it will work.... If you are looking for a doctor to sugarcoat things he is probly not the doctor for you. He is very straight forward with what he expects out of treatment and what he thinks will and will not work.
The staff [at CNY-Rochester] notified us that we could possibly be eligible for a Grant to reduce the cost of treatment. After being notified we applied for the Grant and were able to greatly reduce our out of pocket costs.... Most of the nursing staff was wonderful. There were a few nurses that were not as compassionate as other nurses just as there were a few nurses that seemed To Personally care about your feelings and the outcome of your treatment. The nurses were always available to answer questions through the patient portal. We saw the nurses at most of the visits especially the monitoring visits instead of the doctor.

Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at CNY Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We had a full work up with blood work and I had An HSG to make sure there was no blockage of any tubes. We suffered male factor infertility so he sent my husband to a urologist 1st who ruled out any issues. Then my husband was placed on medication to increase his sperm count and the motility. He was monitored very closely while on the medication. Since we were doing and IVF cycle I was placed on medication to increase egg production and to mature the follicles, Medication to reduce inflammation and to build-up the lining of my uterus for transfer. The 1st cycle was unsuccessful. The 2nd cycle we opted to try and HCG wash to see if it made a difference and that cycle was also unsuccessful. With the 3rd cycle we added some additional medications to cut down on inflammation and the chance of rejection of the embryos and that cycle was successful.

Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at CNY Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We had discussed a treatment plan for retrieval, and after our meeting he checked my chart one more time. Because of my very high AMH levels, he explained that the dosage of the hormones I would be prescribed would be lower than normal (due to risk of OHSS). He explained AMH in great detail with me, and fully explained his rationale for changing dosages.

He [Dr. Armando Arroyo] was always compassionate about your feelings. This is a very hard process to go through and knowing I had so many apointments he made me feel like it wasn’t another appointment. He was very thorough in every treatment and when I came there he didn’t want to waste my time and money with IVF right away he referred me to a specialist for my Endometriosis which they removed 100%.
The clinic [CNY-Hamburg] is very welcoming, nurse staff is amazing. They don’t make you feel like a patient more like a family member. Going there over the years I feel more like a family then a patient. Makes me feel more comfortable and less stress for all the appointments.... Kris [a nurse] was absolutely amazing. Kind hearted, listened, show compassion. When we had our first miscarriage she was grieving with me. She helped me through it.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
Be patient with the process. It’s hard on you just as much as it’s hard on them. They are here to help you have a baby and when the result is a negative I feel like they share my pain as well.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
Made me feel comfortable with every visit and was very thorough. He made sure that I didn’t leave with any additional questions.
Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at CNY Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I was in a lot of medications and each tome I trusted Dr.Arroyo with them. I finally hady first pregnancy in May 2017 after trying for 4 years. At that point I never could think I could get pregnant but I did. Even though we had a miscarriage I still had hope that he got me to that point.

Nice, knowledgeable, calm, helpful. However, I personally felt like he [Dr. Arroyo] didn’t review my chart and what we had discussed in previous conversations before my appointment. I am happy that he does phone appointments though, this is extremely convenient for out of town patients....Dr. Arroyo recommended a baby aspirin a day for factor 5. For my second cycle of IVF he recommended using human growth hormone a month prior to retrieval and a high dosage of meds.
I love the peaceful, meditation like atmosphere [CNY Fertility Center- Rochester]! I think it truly helps me be relax during this highly emotional situation. The yoga and others extra groups and activities they offer sound awesome! I wish I lived closer so I could attend....I have felt a bit lost throughout our experience and feel like some nurses didn’t really explain things well. A lot of times I’ve had to be my own advocate. However, I have found 2 AMAZING nurses at the Rochester office, so now I just call and always ask for them!

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
I would actually give advice a friend gave me, that Dr. Kiltz gave her a few years ago....as hard as it may be to be happy and excited for others having babies and being pregnant, surround yourself with everything baby. This has really helped me stay positive!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
Willing to make phone call appointments. Listened, helped where he could.
Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at CNY Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I can only remember the dye test by Dr. Arroyo. Nurses did my iui’s and Dr. Kiltz did my egg retrieval. Dr. Arroyo recommended a baby aspirin a day for factor 5. For my second cycle of IVF he recommended using human growth hormone a month prior to retrieval and a high dosage of meds.

How was your experience with Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
He was very friendly the few times I saw him. He was however quick about visits which was unfortunate because I didn’t feel like I could always ask the questions I wanted. I also felt like he gave false hope in the very beginning stating it would be very easy for me to become pregnant and after a year with the clinic I became pregnant once which unfortunately resulted in miscarriage.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
He is actually not a provider of CNY any longer, he has moved out of state.

Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at CNY Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Initially we started with timed intercourse, without meds. Both my husband and my lab work looked good. We had monitored cycles then as follicles grew to the right size I would trigger and we would have intercourse during a certain timeframe. After one cycle of that we decided to start meds. We did Femera, triggered and timed intercourse for 2-3 cycles. At this point in my time with CNY Dr Arroyo left the practice. Since then I moved on to IUI, first continuing with oral meds and the changing to injections.

Dr. Arroyo is very patient and kind. He is also very attentive. He always knew our names and diagnosis, and where we were in our treatment at every appointment.... I underwent laproscopic surgery that ended up being an excision and ablation of stage 4 endometriosis. I then stunned with follistim, estrogen and a few other injectables. I then underwent retrieval. We did a single frozen embryo transfer that ended in a negative test. The we did a transfer with two frozen embryos that ended in a positive result. We lost one baby at 9 weeks but I have birth to a healthy Singleton.
I have no negative comments for CNY, they treated us with respect and kindness from start to finish. They gave us our miracle and the possibility for more children because we have 2 frozen embryos. I recommend them all the time because I do not want others to suffer at inferior clinics for years and years like we did prior to finding CNY.... Kris is the best nurse I have ever had, hands down. She is kind, compassionate, thorough and we'll educated.

Dr. Arroyo treated us like an individual case. He contacted us at home and made sure we fully understood everything. He is very personable and kind. Dr. Arroyo gave us his personal cellphone number in case we had any questions and always had an immediate response.... Dr. Arroyo put me on a lower does of Gonal F since I have PCOS. 5 embryos were retrieved and 2 fertilized. Unfortunately both our fresh and frozen cycles failed.
CNY is very efficient at what they do at times it can make you feel like you are just another patient since they are such a large group spanning across so many different offices. While the process can be frustrating i have never had a problem with CNY not returning calls or emails. Again the staff is always very kind and try their hardest to make miracles happen.... Nursing staff at CNY is amazing. Every staff member i have come across have been nothing but kind and courteous.

Felt like a human, but he [Dr. Arroyo] was a very busy man.... I was not happy that going I to surgery the plan was to get rid of ALL my cysts no matter the size, but after looking inside he decided to leave 1 alone on my left side and when going back for an ultrasound before wanting to do an IUI, I had to wait another month because the cyst grew to be almost the size of my ovary. I was deviated and extremely angry that while I was under for ovarian drilling he did not do what we had planned.
Far to travel to, but their hours are accommodating and open really early! They [CNY Fertility Ctr - Syracuse] help with medication, different options if insurance won't cover some of it or any of it. Many times they explained in detail how to make taking all the meds to be more manageable and not overwhelming.... [Nursing Staff] Awesome and hard working... Felt comfortable crying and being emotional with dr. And staff.

I saw him [Dr. Armando Arroyo] at every monitoring visit and he really took the time to examine my case and come up with a plan of action specifically for me...We started with a plan for an injectible IUI cycle. This would be my first injectable cycle. I ended up having a greater amount of mature eggs than they would've liked for an IUI so I was faced with the decision to cancel the cycle or flip it into an IVF cycle. I decided to go for it since this was my 9th try at getting pregnant and there were still no answers as to why I wasn't getting pregnant so I was hoping an IVF would give more answers. It worked and I have a daughter now.
About $4500 for the [IVF at CNY] although the price has gone down since I did it. This included ICSI which is amazing and usually a huge extra cost. I got a 10% discount for paying for it all at once and I put it on a credit card. The monitoring and meds were separate and my insurance did not cover so I paid out of pocket. I think around another $1000...Felt like a valued patient. They offered so much more support and activities than my last clinic. Would absolutely go back!

I never felt rushed durning appointments....For all my cycles we tried lovenox and progesterone prior to a positive due to the multiple miscarriages.

The only weakness I see is sometimes they [CNY] seem disorganized but besides that they are wonderful. Always helpful with any questions and concerns.

He [Dr. Armando Arroyo] made sure I knew everything that was going on in the process and understood, he was always there if I had a concern or problem, he gets excited with you when everything goes right & sad with you when it doesn’t but it’s always optimistic and keeps you going when you don’t feel like you can go anymore. He will always be a big part of our hearts!!
CNY is absolutely amazing!! It’s so relaxing which is very important with something so nerve racking! I have not seen any weaknesses. Everyone who works there are so sweet and wonderful! I would never think of going anywhere else! I would travel from the other side of the earth just to go to CNY... Kris Ziegler is absolutely amazing!! I have really small veins so I would have to get blood drawn from my hands, she was the only one I would let touch me with a needle!!

He [Dr. Arroyo] was good in the hospital & surgery setting, not so compassionate at the office. The clinical team seemed to be the support not the doctor. Sometimes he's blunt. Maybe giving more time with patients.... I was giving pill form hormones the first few cycles, along with a steroid, multi, levothyroxine & shots to stop ovulation. One negative cycle, second positive cycle. Pregnancy ended in a misscarrage.... With my insurance we are slowing paying off about $2,000 so far.
Most appointments run ontime. Nurses and PAs [CNY Fertility] seem vested & care. Answer any question in a timely matter. Once you contact the team someone response and helps with any concerns. Clinical team is helpful and a team that works well together.... With my insurance we are slowing paying off about $2,000 so far. Also with the medications we spend about $300 -$400.... Good listers & good follow through

He [Dr. Arryoy] took the time to actually listen to me and answer my questions. I didn’t feel rushed and it felt like he actually cared about my situation... Very caring and very detailed. He has never left me wondering what’s next or questioning his ability. He has made sure to answer every question and actually ask me questions to further my understanding.... Ask questions! He will answer them or if he doesn’t know the answer he will figure it out and make sure to get back to you.
They [CNY - Albany] are amazing. They offer so many extra ways to relax. They have a spa and acupuncture. They also have a payment plan for the ivf to make it affordable which makes the stress a lot less. I would recommend this clinic to anyone who doesn’t have insurance that covers ivf and even ones that do!... Very caring and willing to answer any questions I had. Very detailed on how the whole process of IVF is and didn’t leave anything out.

He made us feel like when we left our first appointment things seemed positive and no matter what to keep a positive attitude because within time it will happen. I would recommend him to anyone going through the same thing I am.
I love everything about cny! Such a beautiful environment at all the locations I have been so far. Everyone knows and understands what your going through. With infertility being such a hush hush topic, it is nice to be able to walk in to the clinic and feel and see how many other women are in the same pair of shoes as I am....

He explained the percentages of success with IUI and what our best chance of getting pregnant would be...was very patient and easy to talk to. He answered all of our questions and spent a good amount of time with us.
The nursing staff at CNY Buffalo is amazing and went above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and answer your questions...IUI was $350 per cycle and $150 to coordinate monitoring per cycle (as well as out of town monitoring at local center)...The clinic atmosphere is very comfortable and soothing. CNY’s reasonable IVF prices are what brought us to this practice and clinic but the amazing doctors, nurses and staff is what keeps us positive in this sometimes difficult journey.

Dr. Arroyo is a fabulous, positive man. He is always looking for the most successful way to create a pregnancy with each woman individually, as all women may have different needs or problems. He is kind, understanding and takes into consideration what the patient want s.... Dr. Arroyo was very understanding of my needs, yet gave me guidance when he felt something was important that I do or do not do. He always made things comfortable. He never made me feel like I was being rushed out of my appointment, but rather that I was important to CNY.
There was a time that a nurse [at CNY Syracuse] had conflicting information that she gave me based on her own opinion of my treatment. I did not agree, and talked to the doctor about my concerns. She said one thing, he told me to specifically go by HIS direction. It was cleared up quickly.... Sometimes it is important to be your own advocate! CNY is wonderful, But with so many patients and staff it can he hard to keep everyone on the same page. If you want to try something, vocalize. They will hear you and help you.

I would say that Dr. Arroyo was invested in our case, but more "easygoing" than other doctors. I do think this helped me, as I tend to be anxious, but I would often work with the nurse on the finer details.... I appreciate their use of Eastern and western medicine. I truly believe that their ability to consider options that are "outside of the box" is what finely led to our very first BFP in over 4.5 years. We we're very pleased with our experience from start to finish.

How was your experience with Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center?
Have any potential questions prepared, but I would say that about any doctor.
Describe your experience with your nurse at CNY Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Kris Ziegler )
Very experienced, caring, patient, and easy to work with.
Describe your experience with CNY Fertility Center.
I appreciate their use of Eastern and western medicine. I truly believe that their ability to consider options that are "outside of the box" is what finely led to our very first BFP in over 4.5 years. We we're very pleased with our experience from start to finish.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Armando Arroyo at CNY Fertility Center.

Dr Arroyo is very kind and gentle. I most saw him for procedures like HSG, ultrasound, etc. ... He's very kind, good at explaining high level issues, statistics, etc. He's also very skilled at procedures such as HSG, etc. My initial consult was pretty simple because we already had a baby through IUI and we're just trying to repeat earlier success.
It's a huge clinic [CNY Fertility Center] but regional office staff are really fantastic and make you feel like an individual, not a number. The phone system can be a little hard to navigate. They are willing to customize protocol and think outside eof the box, unlike big health system based clinics. ... Everyone [nurses] is very kind and positive. They are great at answering questions and handling difficult emotions.

HONESTLY, HE [Dr. Armando Arroyo] WAS GREAT. WE HAD OUR CONSULTATION WITH HIM AND HE EXPLAINED THINGS VERY THOROUGHLY, WHICH WAS CRITICAL SINCE WE HAD NEVER DONE ANY FERTILITY TREATMENTS BEFORE. ALTHOUGH HE WAS NOT AT EVERY APPOINTMENT, HE WAS FREQUENTLY IN THE OFFICE AND ALWAYS SAID HELLO. HE DID PERFORM ONE OF MY IUIS AND ALSO MULTIPLE FOLLICLE SCANS AND A FEW TESTS AS WELL. HE ALWAYS WAS POSITIVE WITH US BUT ALSO REALISTIC
i THOUGHT THE CLINIC [CNY-Hamburg] WAS GREAT. IT HAD THE FEELING OF A VERY RELAXED, AND PRIVATE ENVIRONMENT. ANY OF THE NURSING STAFF OR DOCTORS WERE ALWAYS WILLING TO ANSWER QUESTIONS OR GIVE ADVICE. THE ONLY THING I WOULD SAY IS THAT IT WOULD BE NICE IF THEY DID IVF PROCEDURES, NOT JUST MONITORING AT THE BUFFALO LOCATION.

Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at CNY Fertility Center and their degree of success.
WE STARTED OUT WITH JUST LETROZOLE, MONITORING AND BLOOD WORK. THIS ACCOMPLISHED 3 OR MORE MATURE FOLLICLES THE FIRST TWO MONTHS, AND WE USED A TRIGGER SHOT AND IUI, BUT BOTH ENDED IN NEGATIVE BLOOD TESTS. THEN WE MOVED TO FOLLISTIM INJECTIONS FOR ONE CYCLE, THIS ALSO ENDED WITHOUT PREGNANCY. AFTER THAT WE DID A TEST TO MAKE SURE MY TUBES WERE OPEN AND NO OBSTRUCTIONS. DURING THIS TEST, HE NOTICED THAT I HAD AN ALMOST MATURE FOLLICLE WITHOUT ANY MEDS. WE DECIDED TO MONITOR AFTER THAT AND DID IUI, NO PREGNANCY. THEN WE DID 2 HYBRID CYCLES WITH BOTH LETROZOLE AND FOLLISTIM, ALSO ADDED CETROTIDE. THIS PRODUCED 3 TO 4 MATURE FOLLICLES, TRIGGER SHOT AND IUI. NO PREGNANCY. NOW WE ARE ON A BREAK

They [Armando Arroyo and CNY] were very thorough and mindful. It's appreciated as someone going thru such a sensitive and heartwrenching process. My husband and I truly look forward to pursuing in-vitro fertilization under the care of those at CNY in hopes to conceive our Rainbow baby!... They're very thorough and mindful of their patients, their schedules and how long they've already been going thru their process of infertility.
They [CNY-Hamburg] have beautiful facilities (more than one in upstate New York), well experienced physicians and nurses, a group yoga group that is affiliated with the clinic to help you stay on track. Which is soon opening online courses/workshops as of this October so it'll allow that outreach to go even further with their mass amounts of traveling patients. It's nice to have the FB community as well so you're able to touch base with others that have also went thru the process.

Describe the protocols Armando Arroyo used in your cycles at CNY Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I'm not able to answer that to the fullest extent right now only because we haven't officially started the IVF process and won't until retrieval in November so long as things go well.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They've been very kind in working with my schedule and since I'm a traveling patient trying to ensure that I can get things worked out as much from my location rather than needing to travel out there.

Dr arroyo was polite and respectful. He made us feel like we were “normal” even though we have been feeling like something is wrong with us. He addressed our fears and worries and reassured us that we WILL get pregnant one way or another :) ... I felt like Dr. Arroyo addressed my concerns and talked to me as if we were on the same level. He does a very good job of giving information while also treating you with kindness
Boston ivf in Syracuse is a brand new clinic and it is beautiful. The staff is so friendly and welcoming and I have very little wait time when I get there. They have been great about scheduling appointments and taking my phone calls ... We are just starting out so I am not sure what it will all cost but their rates are pretty decent! ... So far we have had a consultation and baseline blood work & an ultrasound for my follicles and uterine lining. We will go back for a follow up appointment early March and starting iui when my March cycle begins
