I didn’t get to see Dr. Zinger much so I had to deal with the nurse who did 2 of my IUI’s.... Dr. Zinger was very nice during my 1st consultation. He was referred to me by my Gyn doctor at the time. Dr. Zinger gave me some informative information my 1st visit. After that I didn’t really deal with him much.... it will be nice if the doctors will be more involved instead of leaving it up to the nurses.

How was your experience with Michael Zinger at Long Island IVF?
Dr. Zinger was very nice during my 1st consultation. He was referred to me by my Gyn doctor at the time. Dr. Zinger gave me some informative information my 1st visit. After that I didn’t really deal with him much.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Zinger at Long Island IVF?
I would say be prepared not to see him much. If you’re getting an IUI most likely he won’t be the one doing it.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Zinger at Long Island IVF?
I didn’t get to see Dr. Zinger much so I had to deal with the nurse who did 2 of my IUI’s. She was just a cold person. She wouldn’t talk through any of the ultrasounds I had with her.
Describe the protocols Michael Zinger used in your cycles at Long Island IVF and their degree of success.
Two of my IUI cycles he had me on Clomid, progesterone suppository and Ovidrel 250mcg (trigger shot). One cycle I had to take letrozole because there was a shortage on clomid.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Long Island IVF.
She’s a very cold person, she doesn’t communicate well during ultrasounds. She really only talk to you if you’re asking her a question. My last interaction with her was so horrible.
Describe your experience with Long Island IVF.
The strengths this clinic has is the woman who handles the billing. She was so helpful and nice to me every time. The weakness is the lack of communication they have with themselves and their patients. Also it will be nice if the doctors will be more involved instead of leaving it up to the nurses.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Zinger at Long Island IVF.
The only cost I had was for the medication and the donor sperm. With the medication I think I had to pay a $125 deductible.

Michael zinger had great bedside manner. he was educated, knowledgeable. the only thing I would have wished he had done differently was opt in for the ICSI. he felt I would absolutely not need it, however we only got one fertilized egg out of 14. I wish he would have played it safer and done the ICSI.... office staff was warm and welcoming, knew us by name. available for questions. never rushed out of the office. was seen in a timely manner

He was very kind and answered all of our questions. It is when we started our journey, so we were scared. He made us very comfortable....He was there through every consult and procedure. He explained every step. When the sperm count was too low he made sure we were connected with the best urologist. He honestly did everything he could and never made us felt like a number....Although Dr. Zinger is now on the East Coast, I would have recommend him to everyone. His bedside manner is second to none...Dr. Zinger and team really made sure all of our questions were answered and made us feel comfortable through each step..
