Dr. Garrisi helped us have two beautiful children. Yes, she can talk a good bit, but we really are so grateful to her and St. Barnabas for our family.

I started with IRMS in September 2014. On my very first cycle of clomid/IUI, I had an ectopic pregnancy. They were on top of it and handled it very well, but it was an emotional rollercoaster for me and I only could speak to a nurse every call. I asked if Dr. Garrisi could call me back to explain what was going on. She called and was very matter of fact and abrupt on the phone. Not very compassionate at all considering I had to terminate this bad pregnancy and then wait another 3 months to try again. I decided to go back to the practice when the 3 months were up. I regret that I ever did. You never see a dr in the Hoboken office, just a technician who can never answer your questions. You have to wait half the day until a nurse calls you with instructions. I looked up my insurance coverage one day and I saw that Dr. Garrisi tried to charge in $1,000 (which was rejected) for oversight of my cycle. Why was I paying $40 copays every visit if she was charging in a separate fee to the insurance company. One cycle on clomid, I didn't ovulate at all. My estrogen never increased and I had super low progesterone which means I didn't ovulate, but they still put me on progesterone supplements. That wasted my time and prolonged my next cycle. When I met with her again to discuss next steps, she was very abrupt and rushed. I asked about going on metformin and she got angry I suggested it (I have PCOS). She told me it has very bad side effects. Long story short, I now go to Cornell and my dr there (who is amazing) put me on clomid and metformin and I've produced multiple follicles without side effects. She is just dismissive and not a compassionate dr....infertility is an area where people feel helpless and need explanation and not to be talked down to when they ask a question. I wasted many months there....much happier at Cornell (Tribeca office).

Irresponsible doctor. Substandard treatment

Dr. Margaret Graf Garrisi did not recommend us any particular treatment approach based on our data, and went straight into IUI. She missed my cycle! Instead of making a timely explanation, she handsomely covered it up and said I had an abnormal cycle and I should try to conceive by ourselves. In the 2nd cycle, she again, said I should try to conceive by ourselves. During the follow up appointment after the 2 failures, she insisted that we should not ask questions until she finished all her talk. When our turn finally came, she was typing on the commuter while trying to answer our questions. We are totally disappointed and found her irresponsible.
