I am waiting for my RBA consult but one requirement that they have if you are 45 or over is that you get a letter of good health from a perinatologist. This is not an easy feat as most only deal with...pregnant women. I called the perinatologist that I used when I was pregnant at the end of last year but the Dr. practically laughed at me. He said that he could not understand why an RE or OB/GYN was not competent to do this. Said that RBA must not know what they are doing (WRONG) but said that they would allow me to come to them but all that they could say is that as a woman with a healthy uterus...I can carry a baby. I did not like the attitude and would just assume deal with another peri that perhaps has done this before. Can anyone recommend someone in NYC? Thanks.
Im more a lurker than a poster, but saw your latest posts and decided to make contact. I'm also with Dr Toledo at RBA (hoping to cycle soon) and absolutely love him! He has been very positive so far, despite my lining issue... Regarding RBAs egg bank many requirements, it has been frustrating dealing with them, but I'm glad I'm done with all the testing and (almost) ready to cycle.
I asked my OB/GYN who referred me to a friend and I absolutely loved her! The perinatologist also thought it was strange that RBA would require a consultation with a perinatologist prior to pregnancy, but at the end I was happy I went to see her. She was very positive and said I was one of her healthiest patients! I'm in TN, so unfortunately cannot suggest anyone in NJ.
Just want to make contact and wish you tons of luck!
