I was wondering how your experience is with C.NY so far? Do you go to the Albany location? Is it tough being from out of town and going there?
I have done one cycle with CNY and it resulted in a chemical pregnancy. Then we took a month off to get my beta down to 0. And, last month, I was responding really slowly and then we had travel issues...I pulled the plug on myself. So, only 1 cycle so far. 2 to go.
I did a phone consult with Dr. Grossman out of the Latham/Albany office. I liked him. He understood my situation - age, FSH, and "Hail Mary" approach to the whole process. He understood that I am a poor responder and wanted to do low stim. He's been terrific. Low key guy. A bit aloof but will talk with you straight forward. He's better on the phone than in person. He's a bit of a "geek" but a likeable, scientist, sweet guy. I liked him and thought he was kind, compassionate, and, again, understood my approach.
He has a great assistant named Greta that I think is terrific. She responds well by email and morning/early afternoon calls. They have never missed a call back and are kind, patient, and explain things.
Greta happened to be on vacation during this last cycle that I pulled the plug on. I talked for a long time with the head nurse/assistant and she was amazing. We kind of made the decision together with thoughtful conversation.
Their offices in Latham are part fertility center, part spa. It's Lovely with a capital "L". They have easy access to hotels and restaurants and it is right off a major highway.
Does that help at all, Bea? Feel free to ask any other questions. Happy to help in any way.
