: For about a year, we've been doing infertility work with a Dr. Annos of Short Hills, NJ. We've done everything from inseminations to IVF. At this point, our insurance money has run out so we are reviewing all our options. We need to stay in the area so the options I'm looking at are Diamond Institute (Millburn) or St. Barnabas (Livingston). My first IVF done by Dr. Annos was performed at the Diamond Institute. They were very professional but I haven't heard great things about their success rates and my OB says they are kind of like a factory. On the other hand, St. Barnabas supposedly has higher rates. Friday we went for a second opinion/consult with a Dr. Garrisy there and felt like we were really given a hard sell kind of like when you buy a new car. Somehow, we need to get past the hard sell at St Barnabas & "rates" at Diamond and determine which option holds the best hope. Does anyone have opinions about The Diamond Institute, St. Barnabas or even Dr. Annos? Thanks.
I had a consult with Dr. Garrisi and plan to cycle in July. I thought she was very compassionate and knowledgeable and was very comfortable with her. Their lab is supposed to be the best. I felt the attitude at the entire clinic was much better than my previous experience. I will travel from Maryland so it will be a hassle but I think it will be worth it. Best of luck to you,
