NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Extend Fertility Medical Practice, a one-of-a-kind, specialty egg freezing practice in Manhattan, announced today the launch of its full service sister IVF and fertility practice, Expect Fertility. Expect Fertility was established for individuals and couples seeking to begin or continue their fertility journey in a customized, personal and positive environment without the unneeded stresses and prohibitive expenses common with traditional fertility care.
"We are driven by the belief that building a family should be within reach for all," said Dr. Joshua U. Klein, MD FACOG, co-founder and chief clinical officer at Expect Fertility. "That's why we've reduced the cost of fertility services by 30-60 percent, and paired it with expert, transparent and empathetic care from the same team that has made Extend Fertility so noteworthy."
Similar to Extend Fertility, hospitality focused healthcare is core to Expect Fertility's mission. Staff have been trained in the art of enlightened hospitality, championed by Danny Meyers Union Square Hospitality Group, so that they can offer patients clinical excellence, paired with high quality service, for an experience unlike what one might receive from a typical fertility clinic.
"We put our patients first and we are not afraid to question what improvements can be made in the fertility industry to achieve more pleasant experiences and successful outcomes," said Ilaina Edison, co-founder and CEO of Expect Fertility. "We encourage staff to put patients and results first. Because of this, we've been able to show patients we are on their side and serve as a partner in helping them achieve their goals."
Expect Fertility will offer diagnosis and treatment options for all individuals and couples interested in building a family, including IVF with genetically screened embryos, donor eggs and sperm and the thawing and fertilization of previously frozen eggs. Expect Fertility prices are about 30-60 percent lower than the national average cost. A full break down of prices can be seen here.
Patients also benefit from a state-of-the-art lab which launched in January 2017, led by chief embryologist Leslie Ramirez, who trained at the world-renowned Instituto Valenciano de Infertilidad (IVI) [Valencia Infertility Institute] where many of the pioneering studies on advanced IVF and vitrification techniques were conducted. Since the lab opening, Expect Fertility has been successfully performing the full gamut of advanced reproductive techniques while in its beta phase, at a level on par with or surpassing industry-leading labs. In fact, over 80 percent of all embryo transfers performed at the lab to date have resulted in pregnancy, and almost 70 percent have led to an ongoing pregnancy or a live birth.
The lab was specially designed with state-of-the-art filters, air locks, and an air-handling system that uniquely isolates the lab environment from the rest of the floor. These precautions reduce the level of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate, and microbial contaminants to the lowest possible level to produce the safest possible environment for egg and embryo handling.
The practice's permanent medical office suite is currently under development and will be opening in summer 2019, adjacent to Extend Fertility's flagship at 200 W 57th St. In the interim, Expect Fertility will be operating at a temporary location at 30 East 60th St., between Park Ave and Madison Ave, Suite 1102.
