About New England Fertility:*

Dr. Gad Lavy founded New England Fertility in 1991, with the goal of providing state-of-the-art fertility treatment to couples and individuals seeking help conceiving. New England Fertility was the first non-hospital-based outpatient in vitro fertilization (IVF) center in the state of Connecticut, as well as the first infertility treatment center in Connecticut to have a baby born from a cryopreserved egg. New England Fertility was also a pioneer in providing innovative fertility therapies such as intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), and egg freezing, and is recognized as one of the largest egg donor/gestational surrogacy programs in Fairfield County, Connecticut.

Clinic reviews and comments

Response
Dr Lavy is fantastic! Shantai Bonilla as well!
Dr. Lavy was very helpful and his staff helped me pick a great donor. My carrier liked them too.
Overall bad experience with clinic personnel, especially communication and responsiveness.
They messed up everything. Did not follow our requests and orders.
They did not give the necessary support to our egg donor. When she called them to ask questions, they acted like it was a huge imposition. Also, the person who liaises with other doctors, lawyers etc, lacked attention to detail and once even gave the wrong instructions to the egg donor regarding the proper dose for medicines, which is inexcusable.
They were great communicators and reasonably priced. My only complaint is that I had to be very careful that they weren't charging us for services we were already getting from our surrogacy agency. And also, the process of providing a "specimen" could have been more gay friendly... I'll leave it at that.
They are really not organized. You get different answers from different people there and they had many mistakes with the billing
Words are not enough to explain how amazing, awesome, caring, compassionate, attentive, considerate, and whatever other word we can use to describe this clinic, Dr. Lavy, Shantai Rivera-Bonilla, Shay, the english LPRN who's name fails me right now, but Just absolutely AMAZING. We fell in love with the place, the staff and every step was just beyond our expectations.
