    Comment:  We also worked with the doctors at Genesis. The doctor I worked with has since left and started her own practice, but I did also see Dr. Ross a few times-she was wonderful. She also works out of the park slope office.

    Comment:  Review: Dr. Makarov and the Genesis staff helped us to become pregnant after being unsuccessful on our own. My husband and I each had several tests to see if there was anything prohibiting us from getting pregnant and then after all was cleared, we moved on to medication and then finally IUI. The staff were very helpful with questions and appointments.Insurance: My insurance covered everything.Based on a January 2015 birth

    Comment:  I'm sorry that you've not been successful yet. My husband and I also tried for 2 years before ultimately conceiving (through IVF). Just wanted to let you know that we used Genesis Fertility. They have an office in Park Slope where Dr. Kulp-Makarov works. She is very warm and flexible; she does not push invasive procedures. I told her I was hesitant to move to IVF, and she supported our decision to continue with less invasive options until we finally decided to go the IVF route. I'm not sure if she will take your insurance, but if so, I think you would find a consultation with her helpful.Also, FYI you might want to do some more reading before trying Clomid. While many OB/GYNs will prescribe it alone as a first-line measure for infertility, research has suggested its success is limited when not combined with other interventions, such as IUI.

    Comment:  I'm so sorry for your losses. I, too, had two miscarriages before becoming pregnant with my son (now one), and I also had some mutations on the MTHFR gene (compound, heterozygous). I used the Bay Ridge office of Genesis Fertility and I thought they were wonderful. I had some blood tests in the Park Slope office but didn't have any interaction with the doctor there. It was a schlep to get to Bay Ridge every week but ultimately it felt very worth it. For my next pregnancy I'll probably investigate the Park Slope office, so please post to list, and I wish you the very best of luck!(I also had a consultation with a MFM specialist at Mount Sinai after my MTHFR diagnosis. He said in his opinion it wasn't related to the miscarriages and I shouldn't do anything about it. But I decided (with support of the Genesis Fertility doctor) to take baby aspirin throughout the pregnancy, and it stuck. I can't say whether it was related, but there seemed little downside to the baby aspirin and potentially a lot of upside, and I'm happy with my decision.)(Reviewed March 2015)

    Comment:  Sorry for your losses. I too started off at Methodist but it wasn't a good fit for me. I went over to genesis and used dr Makarov. Who was great!!! Unfortunately, the park slope office is a very small offsite ( I only went there for a consultation, blood test and ultrasound . Most time you will have go to the bay parkway office.(Reviewed March 2015)
