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

By admin

February 28th, 2017 at 9:27 am

If there was something holistic—an ancient, trusted treatment—that might improve your chances of success with IVF would you want to learn more about it?

What if this exclusive, yet very affordable, natural therapy might even help if you’ve had prior unsuccessful IVF cycles? And what if this complementary therapy cost less than $200 per IVF cycle? Are you ready to learn more… even see a live demo of the treatment?

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.

Now, there is something from the East that shows promise, too… Acupuncture for fertility.

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. IVF patients… especially those for whom Western medicine alone has not yet produced a baby…may benefit from adding this ancient therapy.

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

Don’t miss this special FREE program on Thursday, March 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 now: http://bit.ly/2kBnYV7

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

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.

It’s an exclusive, yet very affordable, natural therapy that might help increase your chances of conceiving with IVF –even if you’ve had prior unsuccessful cycles. And this ancient, complementary therapy costs less than $200 per IVF cycle.

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.

Fertility Acupuncture Seminar at Long Island IVF

By Tracey Minella

David Kreiner, MD and James Vitale, LAc


If you’ve done IVF without success or are thinking about doing IVF and would like to maximize your chances of conceiving, you’ll want to come to Long Island IVF’s Fertility Acupuncture Seminar on November 3, 2016 at 6:30-8:30 pm in our Melville office.

Dr. Kreiner will go over how this ancient therapy, when combined with in vitro fertilization (IVF), may boost pregnancy rates in some cases. Many patients are interested in this holistic therapy and are pleased to learn it costs less than $200 to add it to their IVF cycle.

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? Dr. Kreiner is very friendly and approachable, as is his special guest, James Vitale, LAc.  Consider stopping by at the end of your workday to find out if this could be the missing piece to your fertility puzzle.

Register to attend this intimate discussion on Thursday, November 3, 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, 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.

Acupuncture: What’s the Point?

By David Kreiner MD

March 11th, 2014 at 8:22 pm

I have previously mentioned the conundrum facing a Western-trained physician embarking on the study of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).  It is part of our nature after a lifetime of scientific training to explain natural phenomena such as health and illness in ways that have been documented with physical evidence. 

The basic physiology on which TCM is constructed has no corresponding physical support that can be seen or measured…a requirement that scientific thinkers rely on to reassure ourselves about the validity and rationale of a proposed theory or treatment.

Instead, it feels to me as I study TCM that I am memorizing random “facts” with corresponding syndromes and treatments.  For now, I must push myself to continue my studies unconcerned that these basics I am committing to memory are not supported by any physical evidence other than the stories of successful therapies.  It is premature for me to pass judgment for as they say, “the proof is in the pudding”. 

In fact, as a practicing reproductive endocrinologist I have seen patients with poor ovarian function or previous failed pregnancies succeed in their child-building endeavors after acupuncture intervention is added as an adjunct to their fertility treatments. 

For this reason, I persevere to learn as much as possible because despite my own admission that TCM is difficult for me to accept as “scientific truths” I believe that it offers potential advantage to my patients as they go through their Western fertility therapies.

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

How important to you is the science…or measurable physical evidence…behind an infertility therapy? Can you take a leap of faith and hope “the proof is in the pudding”?
