My IVF babies!

I can't thank Dr. Grunfeld enough..if not for this wonderful man and amazing doctor, I would not have my beautiful 10 month old daughter, and am now pregnant again. From my initial consult, Dr. Grunfeld was caring, supportive, while being professional and honest. He didn't give up, even when I did, and the results are miraculous. Dr. Grunfeld is a strong competent doctor I highly recommend.

RMA NY is wonderful. I just visited for an intial consult on IUI and Dr. Grunfeld and his staff were incredible. Everyone at the office was focused on ensuring that I left feeling positive, excited and fully informed on options and next steps. Dr. Grunfeld listens intently and patiently and never once did I feel rushed. I would highly recommend Dr. Grunfeld and RMA to anyone who is considering IUI, IVF or other fertility assistance.
