How was your experience with David Keefe at NYU?
Dr. Keefe is a caring, knowledgable doctor who thoroughly explains the available procedures, explains the data clearly and is careful with the patients' emotions. We've always felt we were receiving the best care with him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Keefe at NYU?
Dr Keefe has an excellent consultative demeanor. He is careful with how he communicates with my wife, sometimes explaining things in several different ways to make sure we both understand what is going on. He takes as long as needed to be sure we understand our options, the pros/cons and are comfortable making our decisions.
Describe the protocols David Keefe used in your cycles at NYU and their degree of success.
We used IUI three cycles. IUI with injections one cycle and an IVF cycle.
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU. (Assigned nurse: Carol was the main one)
For the most part, Carol was good with us. At times, however she could be a bit gruff on the phone (not always) and there was a time or two when we had to follow up to make sure we clearly understood what we were supposed to be doing.
Describe your experience with NYU.
NYU Fertility has a good schedule of opening in the morning for blood work and calling with results in the afternoon. The key is to get there right when they open in order to get in and get the blood draw done. Generally, their process is like clockwork.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Keefe at NYU.
IVF was not insurance-covered so was about $12,500 + medicines and genetic testing (total $20-25k)
Describe David Keefe's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at NYU.
Dr Keefe believes in single embryo transfer if at all possible, but is open to discussing multiple embryo transfer if the patient truly wishes to follow that course after having a thorough discussion.
