Why Being Voted the Best In-Vitro Fertility Practice on Long Island Matters to Us

By Tracey Minella

December 14th, 2017 at 10:47 pm

Long Island IVF has been fortunate enough to have won the “Best In-Vitro Fertility Practice” category of the Best of Long Island contest for the past several consecutive years.

It’s an honor we don’t take for granted.

Being nominated and then voted for by our patients and their families each year is humbling and we are thankful for your confidence in our program. We are especially touched that votes come not only from our patients who have had success already, but also from others who are still undergoing treatment and keeping the faith that their own little miracle is coming.

By voting for us—just like when you leave positive reviews for your personal LIIVF doctor on our Facebook page and medical review sites– you are helping others who are struggling with infertility make that tough decision as to what program they should trust with their own fertility care. (Not to mention that you make our day even brighter.)

If you are so inclined, you can still vote for Long Island IVF tonight and tomorrow before the contest closes on Dec 15th while you are supporting your other local favorite goods and services providers. We are listed in the HEALTH & WELLNESS section, under “In-Vitro Fertility Practice”. It only takes a moment. Vote here. You will also notice our own co-founder, Dr. David Kreiner is up for Best “Acupuncturist” in the same section for his fertility acupuncture services.

2018 will be our 30th anniversary of making babies on Long Island, and the thrill of family-building never gets old. In fact, some of our own IVF babies have already grown up and they vote for us, too! And what a concept and thrill THAT is!

Thanks again for trusting us with one of the most important health care decisions of your life and for your positive feedback and your vote.

Many blessing for a peaceful holiday season.

A Long Island IVF Symposium: How Acupuncture May Enhance Fertility and Impact IVF Success

By Tracey Minella

November 3rd, 2017 at 4:27 pm

Acupuncture has been practiced in Traditional Chinese Medicine for ages, but its potential impact as a complementary fertility treatment to Western Medicine’s cutting-edge in vitro fertilization (“IVF”) is relatively new and exciting in comparison. And it’s available at Long Island IVF.

Would you like to know more about how this holistic treatment might be the missing piece in your pathway to parenthood?

This very affordable, natural therapy might even help if you’ve had prior unsuccessful IVF cycles. Fertility acupuncture only costs about $200 per IVF cycle at Long Island IVF. And the acupuncture needles are so tiny, thin, and painless that any brave IVF veteran could easily handle it.

With so much riding on the outcome of an IVF cycle—emotionally and financially—many patients look for ways to “customize” their traditional IVF cycle. Some customized “add-on” treatments might include such things as ICSI, PGS/PGD, and other cutting-edge Western medicine offerings. Now, there’s acupuncture.

Long Island IVF is the first infertility practice with a Reproductive Endocrinologist who is also a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner and a NYS certified medical acupuncturist.

Motivated by a desire to find complementary holistic approaches to enhance today’s best Western medical technologies, Long Island IVF co-founder and REI, Dr. David Kreiner, went back to school to study TCM after over 30 years of making babies.

Dr. Kreiner is now applying that acupuncture training in the IVF procedure room, both pre- and post-IVF transfer–exclusively to ALL interested Long Island IVF patients.

Come down and learn more about it.

Long Island IVF’s Acupuncture Program is hosting a free symposium with Dr. Kreiner and a few special guest speakers who are all experts in the field of acupuncture to discuss topics related to improving IVF success with acupuncture, including:

  • David Kreiner, MD, certified Medical Acupuncturist – Epigenetics, Acupuncture and IVF
  • James Shinol, MSOM, L.Ac., LMT – Fertility Benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine
  • XiuJuan Yang, PhD, MD (China) - TCM Treatment for Diminished Ovarian Reserve
  • James Vitale, M.S., L.Ac – FAQs about Acupuncture and TCM

Don’t miss this special FREE program on Thursday, November 9, 2017 from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm at our Melville office at 8 Corporate Center Drive, Melville, New York. Seating is limited, so pre-registration is required. Register here.

We look forward to seeing you there. Please contact us at 631-752-0606 with any questions.

Long Island IVF Fertility Acupuncture Seminar: What’s the Point?

By Tracey Minella

June 20th, 2017 at 7:35 am

So much about infertility is out of your control. In fact, next to the paralyzing fear and constant worry that you might never become parents, the lack of control over your body’s ability to reproduce when– and as often as– you want is probably the most maddening part of infertility.

So, when it comes to treatment options, it’s common to think a bit too aggressively and want things that deep down you know aren’t considered safe—like transferring back 8 embryos at once—just because you hope it’ll increase the odds of getting pregnant. Desperation can do that to you, especially if your journey is taking a long time.

Fortunately, there is a better and safer option. It’s fertility acupuncture. And it is available at Long Island IVF. Acupuncture is holistic—an ancient, trusted treatment—that might improve your chances of success with IVF. So, shouldn’t you learn more about it?

It gets better: This exclusive, yet very affordable, natural therapy might even help if you’ve had prior unsuccessful IVF cycles. And fertility acupuncture costs less than $200 per IVF cycle. Are you ready to learn more from the doctor who performs it and other local experts?

With so much riding on the outcome of an IVF cycle—emotionally and financially—many patients are looking closely at ways to “customize” their traditional IVF cycle. Depending on a patient’s particular case, customized “add-on” treatments might include such things as ICSI, PGS/PGD, and other cutting-edge Western medicine offerings.

Dr. Kreiner is now applying that acupuncture training in the IVF procedure room, both pre- and post-IVF transfer–exclusively to ALL interested Long Island IVF patients. IVF patients… especially those for whom Western medicine alone has not yet produced a baby…may benefit from adding this ancient therapy. Could this be the missing piece?

Long Island IVF’s Acupuncture Program is hosting a free seminar with Dr. Kreiner and a special guest–local acupuncturist James Vitale, M.S., LAc. — to discuss topics related to improving IVF success with acupuncture. You may also see a live demonstration of fertility acupuncture.

Happy Infertility Awareness Week?

By Tracey Minella

April 23rd, 2017 at 9:50 pm

 

image courtesy of Resolve


Well, there’s an oxymoron for you. Nothing should begin with the word “happy” and include the word “infertility”, if you ask me. For the infertility patient, every single minute of every draining day is Infertility Awareness Day.  So, giving us just a week in the national spotlight is kind of insulting. Don’t you think?

So, how do we mark this week? Is there a greeting card for this occasion? It certainly doesn’t seem like a celebration is in order, right? No one’s boss is sending flowers or candy. If the boss even knows.

It’s not like we can go around posting pictures of negative pregnancy tests sticks or injection site bruises on social media. Or can we?

So how do we call attention to “our week” when so many of us haven’t even told our closest friends and family that we’re suffering from infertility yet?  In fact, many patients understandably go to incredible lengths just to keep the boss and co-workers in the dark, for reasons ranging from unfounded but real embarrassment to the fear of losing their jobs…and insurance benefits (*insert sarcastic laugh)…upon discovery of their “secret”. [We’ve got a great workshop for you silent types, so check it out below.]

No one can understand the intensity and rawness of the range of emotions of an infertility patient … unless they are an infertility patient. Not your mother, your doctor, your best friend, or even your spouse. It’s something only you can feel the true depths of.  And calling attention to this week may not make you feel better. But it is necessary. Why?

Over the years, raising awareness of infertility has ever so slowly resulted in increased insurance coverage and benefits and more grant programs to defer some of the costs of treatment. In addition, raising awareness has also helped patients find blogs and support groups to help them through this journey, so please consider following Long Island IVF on social media and our blog, The Fertility Daily. Awareness is critically important in today’s political climate– there are “personhood amendment” bills popping up regularly that may threaten the very future of IVF if passed in their current forms—so it’s definitely time to stay vigilant and make our representatives “Listen UP!” And that’s the theme for this year’s NIAW. Listen UP!

Speaking of supporting our patients—and the suffering public as well—Long Island IVF has four (4) free events this week and next in our Melville office to “celebrate” NIAW and we encourage you register to come to as many as you’d like. All are welcome. Here they are:

Yoga for Fertility Night” on April 26th with Lisa Pineda! Learn and do the poses designed to help your body become more receptive to pregnancy through stress reduction, increased blood flow to the uterus, and more. Register here for free. Spots go fast. This was wildly popular last time we offered it!

Acupuncture for Fertility Symposium” on April 27th, offers a live demo of fertility acupuncture—a holistic and ancient therapy offered at Long Island IVF by our own Dr. David Kreiner, the area’s first and only known reproductive endocrinologist who is also a certified and practicing medical acupuncturist. Learn from a panel of experts how some patients may improve their chances of IVF success by using this complementary therapy—even if they tried IVF unsuccessfully in the past. Register here for free.

New Beginnings through Donor Egg Seminar” on May 2nd. Donor Egg is not usually the first step for people seeking to build a family and many people have suffered a long time, through disappointment and loss, before opening up to the possibility of building their family with donor egg. If you find yourself open to exploring a program that many women later confess they wish they considered sooner, please join us to learn more from our supportive and compassionate donor egg team of doctors and nurses. Hear from one of our many successful donor egg recipient moms and ask your questions. Register here for free.

Tired of the Secret? Workshop” on May 4th. In an effort to help those couples who want or need to come out of the infertility closet and tell their family and friends or employers—but don’t know how to do it—we are bringing back this popular workshop from Coming Out Infertile Day last November. Led by our Mind-Body Program and infertility specialist, Bina Benisch, MS, RN, couples or individuals who want to “come out” are given counsel and guidance to work through the issues that are blocking them, as well as suggestions on how to navigate that important conversation so they can unburden themselves and get the support they need from their loved ones. Register here for free.

And just as National Infertility Awareness Week will come and go, so too will this journey you are on. Even if it seems never-ending at times. It will end.

And because we raise infertility awareness, the technology gets better every day, and your chances for a happy ending get better daily, too.

Well, look at that…a sentence with the words “happy” and “infertility” in it. Things are looking up.

Listen Up! National Infertility Awareness Week Events are coming to Long Island IVF

By Tracey Minella

April 4th, 2017 at 6:28 am

It’s that time of the year again. That time when we have the attention of the rest of the world…a/k/a the fertile folks…and get a chance to school their basically clueless selves about the daily and often debilitating struggles of the fertility-challenged.

It’s not their fault they are fertile. Or clueless. But that doesn’t make them or their remarks any less irritable all year long. So the theme for this year’s National Infertility Awareness Week (“NIAW”)–“Listen Up!”—is really appropriate! NIAW runs from April 23-29, 2017. Let’s take advantage of the chance to make them listen up.

Each year, before, during, and after NIAW, Long Island IVF offers some events to help those struggling with infertility and to raise awareness of infertility. All events are presented in our Melville office and are free and open to the public—no need to be a patient of ours. They are designed to help support you physically and emotionally no matter where you are on your journey to parenthood. Did I mention they are FREE?

Some events give you a mental and physical leg up, so to speak—like our “Yoga for Fertility Night” on April 26th with Lisa Pineda! Learn and do the poses designed to help your body become more receptive to pregnancy through stress reduction, increased blood flow to the uterus, and more. Register here for free. Spots go fast. This was wildly popular last time we offered it!

Similarly, our “Acupuncture for Fertility Symposium” on April 27th, offers a live demo of fertility acupuncture—a holistic and ancient therapy offered at Long Island IVF by our own Dr. David Kreiner, the area’s first and only known reproductive endocrinologist who is also a certified and practicing medical acupuncturist. Learn from a panel of experts how some patients may improve their chances of IVF success by using this complementary therapy—even if they tried IVF unsuccessfully in the past. Register here for free.

Right on the heels of NIAW is the most dreaded day of the year for many infertile ladies: Mother’s Day (followed by the also-awful Father’s Day for the guys). These two days are difficult for all of us, but they’re particularly hard on those who have been on their infertility journey a long time and have exhausted many available family-building options or those suffering in silence and stressing over keeping the secret.

Right before Mother’s Day we are offering our “New Beginnings through Donor Egg Seminar” on May 2nd. Donor Egg is not usually the first step for people seeking to build a family and many people have suffered a long time, through disappointment and loss, before opening up to the possibility of building their family with donor egg. If you find yourself open to exploring a program that many women later confess they wish they considered sooner, please join us to learn more from our supportive and compassionate donor egg team of doctors and nurses. Hear from one of our many successful donor egg recipient moms and ask your questions. Register here for free.

 

Also before Mother’s Day is our “Tired of the Secret Workshop” on May 4th. In an effort to help those couples who want or need to come out of the infertility closet and tell their family and friends or employers—but don’t know how to do it—we are bringing back this popular workshop from Coming Out Infertile Day last November. Led by our Mind-Body Program and infertility specialist, Bina Benisch, MS, RN, couples or individuals who want to “come out” are given counsel and guidance to work through the issues that are blocking them, as well as suggestions on how to navigate that important conversation so they can unburden themselves and get the support they need from their loved ones. Register here for free.

If you or anyone you know is struggling with infertility please join us at any or all of these events for free, so we can support you on your journey. If your personal journey is resolved, please share the information so friends who are suffering in silence may see it and benefit.

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

Which event(s) seem interesting to you? Are there any other events you’d like to see offered?

Long Island IVF Free Seminar and Live Demo: Improving IVF Success with Acupuncture

Long Island IVF Symposium: How Acupuncture Can Improve IVF Success

By Tracey Minella

January 13th, 2017 at 11:54 pm


With so much riding on the outcome of an IVF cycle—emotionally and financially—savvy patients weigh all their options before jumping into such an important undertaking. There are several options that might be applicable, depending on a patient’s particular case, to “customize” a traditional IVF cycle, including ICSI, PGS/PGD, and other cutting edge medical procedures.

And now, there is something new—and old—that shows promise as well.

Dr. Kreiner is the only reproductive endocrinologist in the region who is also a certified acupuncturist and this combined Western and Eastern medicine therapy is available to all Long Island IVF patients, not only his patients.

Come hear Dr. Kreiner tell of how he went back to school after three decades of building families on Long Island to learn TCM and acupuncture in an effort to offer couples—especially those for whom Western medicine alone has not yet produced a baby– every chance of conceiving through a blend of the best Western and Eastern medicine therapies.

Dr. Kreiner is now applying that acupuncture training in the IVF procedure room, both pre- and post-IVF transfer.

Why not see a live demonstration of fertility acupuncture for yourself in a relaxed and casual setting and learn more about how this exclusive, yet very affordable, natural therapy might help increase your chances of conceiving?

Long Island IVF Acupuncture Seminar with Dr. Kreiner

By Tracey Minella

September 29th, 2016 at 10:18 am

 

Dr. Kreiner performing acupuncture for fertility


Have you been trying to conceive without success? Have you even failed to conceive with IVF? Are you losing hope?

What if there was a very inexpensive holistic treatment that might help your chances of conceiving–something that’s been practiced in Traditional Chinese Medicine for hundreds of years and is now being used in conjunction with IVF to help couples conceive? What if adding it to your IVF protocol cost less than $200 per IVF cycle? And what if you didn’t have to hear how it works at a huge event with lots of experts speaking?

Fertility acupuncture is old, yet new. It’s new in that Long Island IVF has the first Reproductive Endocrinologist who is also a certified acupuncturist—Dr. David Kreiner.

Imagine sitting down in a smaller setting to hear him tell of how he went back to school after three decades of building families on Long Island to learn TCM and acupuncture in an effort to offer couples every chance of conceiving through a blend of the best Western and Eastern medicine therapies.

Dr. Kreiner is now applying that acupuncture training in the IVF procedure room, both pre- and post-IVF transfer. IVF patients… especially those for whom Western medicine alone has not yet produced a baby…may benefit from adding this ancient therapy. The treatment is available to all LIIVF patients, not just his patients.

Why not sit down with Dr. Kreiner in a relaxed and casual setting to learn more about how this exclusive, yet very affordable, natural therapy might help increase your chances of conceiving? Not only is he completely approachable, but he’ll be toting bags of his famous home-made Dr. Dave’s Fertility Trail Mix. How can you resist stopping by at the end of your workday?

Register to attend this intimate discussion on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at 6:30 pm at our Melville office at 8 Corporate Center Drive, Melville, New York. The seminar is free, but seating is limited and seats are going fast, so pre-registration is required.

We look forward to seeing you there. Please contact Lindsay Montello, Patient Services, at 631-752-0606 or LMontello@liivf.com with any questions.

From the moms juggling LIIVF babies… to the dads coaching LIIVF teens…to the parents sending LIIVF adults off to college or down the aisles… to the LIIVF patients still on their journeys to parenthood who are confident in the care they’re receiving…we thank you all.

We love what we’ve gotten to do every day more than 28 years…build families. If you are having trouble conceiving, please call us. Many of our nurses and staff were also our patients, so we really do understand what you’re going through. And we’d like to help. 631-752-0606.
