Long Island IVF Proudly Sponsors Long Island Pridefest 2017

By Tracey Minella

June 8th, 2017 at 3:59 pm

Long Island IVF is proud to once again be a major sponsor of this year’s LI Pridefest Weekend here on Long Island. Pridefest is really kicking it up a notch this year not only by moving the festivities to beautiful Long Beach, New York, but by offering a full weekend jam-packed with activities right on the beach. Does it get any better?

From beach parties, concerts, and the Rise with Pride parade to tons of other unique fun things like a carnival, 5K runs, drag bingo and a trapeze show, there is something for everyone’s tastes—singles, couples and families, young and old– and it runs from June 9-11, 2017. And we will be right there for all that Pride on the Beach!

LIIVF has been actively building families for the region’s LGBT community for decades due to its long-standing belief that every person has a right to be a parent and we have long-partnered with the Long Island’s LGBT Network. We pride our practice… which includes members of both the non-LGBT and LGBT communities… on acceptance and inclusion. And we address the unique aspects of LGBT family-building from both a personal and medical perspective. In many ways, your needs are the same as the non-LGBT community, but in some ways they are different. We get that.

Just stop by our booth at LI Pridefest Marketplace Fair on Sunday and meet some of the team. Our prior successful LGBT parents will stop by for impromptu reunions throughout the event, too, and are often eager to share their experiences as well. The Long Island IVF booth will be on the Boardwalk all day and night on Sunday June 11.

Not in the mood to chat long with all the festivities to see? We totally get that! Swing by and grab some of our informational brochures to read later. Enter our free raffle to win a relaxation basket! The forecast looks great, so come on down and meet us.

You can also get to know us later this month as we host “Family-Building the LGBT Way” on Thursday, June 29, 2017 from 6:30 until 8:30 pm. This very special event will be held in conjunction with the LGBT Network at Long Island IVF’s Melville office located at 8 Corporate Center Drive, Melville, New York.  Dr. Steven Brenner joins other key LIIVF team members to bring you a seminar on everything you ever wanted to know about today’s LGBT Family-Building options. Please pre-register here for this free event. You can also email Lindsay at lmontello@liivf.com with any questions. Light refreshments will be served.

Another Long Island IVF Doctor Named to the Super Docs List!

By Tracey Minella

May 28th, 2017 at 3:05 pm

 

 

Happy to share some great news: The New York Times Magazine’s annual “Super Docs” list for 2017 was published and another one of our doctors has now joined two of our other doctors on the list!

 

Long Island IVF co-founder, Dr. Daniel Kenigsberg, along with doctors, Dr. Joseph Pena and Dr. Michael Zinger, were named as New York “Super Doctors” in the field of Reproductive Endocrinology, securing three spots on the elite list. This is the fourth straight year for Drs. Pena and Zinger.

 

You can’t buy your way onto the list through paid advertising, or get on it by generating the most “likes” in a social media campaign (but feel free to come over and “like” us on Facebook anyway at http://www.facebook.com/longislandivf!) What is special about this honor is that Super Docs are chosen by their peers. It’s doctors recognizing other doctors’ talent and ability.

 

We know of many other top notch doctors…both on the Long Island IVF team and in other fields who are not included on the Super Doctors list… and are humbled by this recognition. Thanks to all the physicians who voted for Drs. Kenigsberg, Pena, and Zinger for this honor.

 

Thanks also to our wonderful patients, who so often sing the praises of their LIIVF doctors. It’s possible that some of the doctors who nominated our physicians as Super Docs may have first heard about them from you! You are the reason we all love what we do every day.

Teacher Appreciation Day: When Will it be YOUR Turn to be the Parent?

By admin

We know it’s a tough job to be a teacher…especially when you are struggling with infertility. To spend all day, each day surrounded by little faces—playing a big part in not just in educating these children entrusted to your care, but also in raising them. It’s not a job you can turn off when the final bell rings. You keep thinking about them 24/7. Just like infertility.

When will it be your turn to be the parent at the parent teacher conference?

Well, maybe we can help you get that family started.

Did you know that Long Island IVF is a designated Center of Excellence for the Empire Plan, the insurance provider for many local Teachers as well as other NY State and Local Government Employees? That’s great news for Long Island’s insured teachers and others who want to take advantage of the substantial financial benefits that come with choosing a COE provider for your fertility care and have those services provided on Long Island.

Even those who aren’t able to take advantage of the Empire Plan’s COE benefits can confidently trust Long Island IVF with their fertility care. Our doctors are consistently voted Top Docs and Super Doctors by their peers. We brought Long Island its first IVF baby and many other firsts in the field.

In addition to the assurance of working with a program that has achieved high quality measures, our COE designated program affords our Empire Plan patients an additional financial advantage — once treatment is approved by the Empire Plan, you receive full benefits with no co-payments or co-insurance requirements for the services covered by their insurance plan.

Now is the perfect time to start planning for infertility treatment this summer—especially for teachers! Free from the stress of a teacher’s rigid schedule, the summer months offer the flexibility to do IVF (or IUI) in a more relaxed frame of mind.

If you are not already a Long Island IVF patient and would like to jump start your family-building plans, call us today. With six offices across Long Island and Brooklyn, there is sure to one that’s conveniently located near you.

We look forward to welcoming brand new patients as well as patients transferring from other practices for insurance reasons. Let’s start building that family together this summer. School is almost out. Sounds like the perfect time for a personal project.

Call our New Patient Coordinator at 877-838-BABY to schedule your initial consultation today.

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

Are you a teacher or government employee who may need help conceiving—or do you know of someone else who does? Please share. You never know if that great teacher who your child loves is secretly longing for a baby of her own.

Long Island IVF’s Dr. Zinger is now in Lake Success and Brooklyn

By Tracey Minella

February 22nd, 2017 at 12:27 pm

We are happy to announce that Dr. Michael Zinger has joined Dr. Daniel Kenigsberg and Dr. Steven Brenner in seeing patients at Long Island IVF’s Lake Success location. Dr. Zinger will continue seeing patients in our Brooklyn office as well.

Dr. Zinger has been with Long Island IVF since 2008 as the reproductive endocrinologist who anchors our Brooklyn facility. He enjoys a loyal patient following and has just branched out a bit eastward to reach even more patients closer to where they live and work.

Uniquely-qualified with dual board certifications in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility as well as OBGYN, Dr. Zinger appreciates the difficulty frustrated patients face when choosing an infertility specialist as well as the trust it takes for OBGYNs to refer patients out to him for advanced infertility care.

Consistently ranked by his peers as a “SuperDoc” in the New York Times and selected for the Patient’s Choice and Compassionate Doctor awards on vitals.com, Dr. Zinger makes quality, compassionate patient care a priority. He’s one reason the public voted Long Island IVF the “Best In Vitro Fertility Practice” for three straight years– 2015, 2016, and 2017.

Prior to joining Long Island IVF, Dr. Zinger spent six years heading the IVF program at Edwards Hospital. A prolific author of medical textbook chapters and medical journal articles, as well as a presenter at numerous national and international medical meetings, Dr. Zinger was also the recipient of The Endocrine Society’s prestigious Senior Fellow’s Award for outstanding research. His complete bio can be viewed here.

If you are looking for a trustworthy and experienced infertility specialist in the Lake Success or Brooklyn area, you can book an appointment with Dr. Zinger by calling (718) 375-6400 for Brooklyn or (516) 358-6363 for Lake Success.

Long Island IVF has multiple offices throughout Long Island as well as in Brooklyn for your convenience.

Teachers, Take Note: Long Island IVF is the “A+” Answer

Everything is better in the summer. Even IVF.

This is especially true if you are a Long Island teacher or NY State or local government worker with infertility coverage through United Healthcare’s Center of Excellence (UCOE) provided under the NY State Empire Plan (NYSHIP).

We have some exciting news to share: Although Long Island IVF has previously been one of only a few designated United Healthcare Centers of Excellence (UCOE) infertility providers through the NY State Empire Plan – effective June 1st, we’re now the only UCOE infertility services provider with practice offices and laboratory facilities on Long Island. And that’s great news for Long Island’s insured teachers and others who want to take advantage of the substantial financial benefits that come with choosing a UCOE provider for your fertility care and have those services provided exclusively on Long Island.

Even those who aren’t able to take advantage of the Empire Plan’s UCOE benefits, can confidently trust Long Island IVF with their fertility care. Our doctors are consistently voted Top Docs and Super Doctors by their peers and the practice has been voted “Best In Vitro Fertility Practice” by the public for the past two years straight–ever since the category was added to the Long Island Press contest. We brought Long Island its first IVF baby and many other firsts in the field.

Summer is just starting. The sun is bright and the mood is as relaxed as it ever gets. We’d love to help you start your family this summer. Call today for your consultation.

It is with humble yet excited hearts that we announce that Long Island IVF was voted the Best In Vitro Fertility Practice in the Best Of Long Island 2015 and 2016 contest…two years in a row!

The doctors, nurses, embryologists, and the rest of the Long Island IVF staff are so proud of this honor and so thankful to every one of you who took the time to vote. 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.

Long Island IVF Doctors Are Recognized as “Super Doctors” Again!

Dr. Pena


Did you catch the big news? New York Times Magazine named this year’s “Super Docs” list on Sunday and you might just recognize a name or two!

Long Island IVF doctors, Dr. Joseph Pena and Dr. Michael Zinger, were named as New York “Super Doctors” in the field of Reproductive Endocrinology, securing two of only about a dozen spots on the elite list, which only includes two doctors on Long Island, and the remaining in the NYC area.

What makes this exciting and humbling is that “Super Docs” honorees are chosen by their peers. You can’t buy your way onto the list through paid advertising, or get on it by generating the most “likes” in a social media campaign (but feel free to come over and “like” us on Facebook anyway at http://www.facebook.com/longislandivf!) It is doctors recognizing other doctors’ talent and ability.

Dr. Zinger

We know of many other top notch doctors…both on the Long Island IVF team and in other fields who are not included on the Super Doctors list… and are humbled by this recognition. Thanks to all the physicians who voted for Drs. Pena and Zinger for this honor.

And of course, we’d like to thank our wonderful patients, who so often sing the praises of their LIIVF doctors… because it’s possible many of the doctors who nominate our physicians for these honors may have first heard about them from you! You are the reason we all love what we do every day.

Have you ever told another doctor about your LIIVF experience or recommended your LIIVF doctor?
