Professional Statement

  • Dr. Goldstein is Senior Attending Physician at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospitals. He is an Associate Professor in Obstetrics and Gynecology, College of Physician and Surgeons of Columbia University, NYC. He has also achieved his board certifications in both obstetrics and gynecology and reproductive endocrinology and infertility. The number of fertility specialists in New York with board certification is very small compared to other specialties. This is partly because of the rigorous processes required to be board certified as an infertility specialist.
  • Dr. Goldstein completed his Residency in OB/GYN in Israel and at Maimonides Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY. He completed a research fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Columbia University and a Clinical Fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at SUNY, Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY. His first In Vitro Fertilization child was born in New York City in June 25 1987.
  • We know that large practices can sometimes become impersonal and we strive to deliver individualized, personalized care. We receive many letters from our current, and former, patients expressing their appreciation for our personal concern and attention. Our New York fertility clinic is focused on delivering the highest quality care in a caring and compassionate environment.
  • Sometimes procedures, such as ultrasound and estradiol measurements, must be scheduled for several patients early in the morning. These measurements are critical, and enable Dr. Goldstein to make daily adjustments to fertility drug dosages. Dr. Goldstein tries to be present at each patient visit, and the nurses are always available to offer support and answer questions.
  • Our fertility clinic nursing staff has extensive experience treating infertile couples, and they are aware of the challenges faced by patients undergoing ART therapies such as IVF. In addition to their clinical duties, our nurses perform teaching services for our patients and are available to answer questions. Patients undergoing ovulation induction with follicle stimulating hormone will receive one on one training and education from our IVF nurses.
  • The New York fertility clinic embryology and andrology laboratories are critical components of every fertility practice. These laboratory professionals perform delicate micromanipulation procedures such as intracytoplasmic sperm injection and assisted hatching. We are fortunate to have a Ph.D. level Laboratory Director who has extensive experience gained over hundreds of IVF cycles. Our andrologists are highly skilled in conducting semen analysis and can often identify subtle sperm abnormalities missed by commercial laboratories. A reproductive medicine laboratory should be employed to conduct the semen analysis for infertility.
