So come meet us at the Roosevelt Field Mall
Plainview, NY (Vocus) December 2, 2009
One in six couples in the United States struggles with infertility. As the holiday season approaches, the inability to fulfill that dream of having a child can be especially painful. It is supposed to be a time to celebrate family, but for many couples it is just a reminder of what they do not have. Many feel hopeless because they lack good information and because the financial burden of treatment is extreme.
East Coast Fertility is reaching out this holiday season with a gift of hope. Dr. David Kreiner and the ECF team will be at the Roosevelt Field Mall Saturday Dec 5th through Sunday Dec 13th on the main level next to Starbucks to offer free information and consultations about fertility treatments and financing options. They will also distribute coupons that can be applied to fertility medications. Dr. Kreiner and his team want to send the message that there are affordable options for couples who want a child. “Finances do not have to be a roadblock to your dreams of having a family,” says Dr. Kreiner. “At ECF we help patients by offering them several ways to reduce the costs of treatment.”
ECF’s single embryo transfer program is one of those options. It includes a standard In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) cycle, cryopreservation, embryo storage and unlimited frozen embryo transfers all for the price of a single IVF procedure. ECF also participates in the New York State Department of Health Grant program, and even offers their own sliding scale grants to patients who qualify. Another cost effective treatment plan is their Micro IVF regimen which requires less medication and less monitoring, thus reducing the cost. They also offer a “shared risk program” where patients can pay an upfront fee depending on their age and history for 6 retrievals. If they are unsuccessful in achieving a live birth, the patient receives a full refund. Finally, ECF has an IVF Study program where patients can receive discounts if they participate in certain research studies.
“So come meet us at the Roosevelt Field Mall,” says Pamela Madsen, celebrated fertility blogger (http://www.thefertilityadvocate.com) and member of the ECF staff. “And if you are not affected, but know someone who is, spread the word to them about this opportunity. Your outreach can give them hope this holiday season and make their dreams of having children a reality.” For more information, call 516-939-2229 or visit http://www.eastcoastfertility.com.
