The best assessments come from our patients—why take it from us when you can hear what past patients have to say about their experiences with RMANJ. Below you’ll find reviews and stories from some of our past patients. We appreciate patient testimonials and enjoy taking the journey with them. Do you have a story to share with us? we would love to hear from you!
I was 27, young, and so naive about the word “fertility”. Fast forward three years later and that word takes on a whole new painful meaning.
While our journey may be filled with more or less heartbreak than others, it’s still ours. After years of irregular cycles and no pregnancy, an OBGYN diagnosed me with PCOS. I thought this was promising because now we know what’s wrong! After several failed ovulation inductions, I was beginning to lose hope. This is when we decided to seek help from someone else and found Dr. Yih at the Hamilton office. Our initial consultation went great and she made us feel so hopeful that we would find a treatment that would help us start a family! That treatment took several combinations of drug therapies, insemination’s, IVF, and ultimately a frozen embryo transfer, that resulted in our current three month old twins.
Dr. Yih was amazing and I recommend anyone I know to her. As a former IVF patient, I was worried about this powerhouse RMA. I was definitely wrong – RMA is so much more in terms of processes, technology, research, and efficiency!
Thank you, RMA! My family is complete because of you! To those couples still trying, keep fighting. Once you experience infertility you’re forever changed. You’re personally stronger- your family is stronger!

I could not be happier with RMA. Words cannot express how blessed and happy we are with our three little angels.
I want to take this opportunity to thank God and Dr. Morris’s entire team. It has been a wonderful journey both times. I conceived my oldest daughter who now is going to be 4 years old in August, and our twins are going to be 2 in July. My husband and I tried to have a family for five years the natural way but it did not work being that I have Endometriosis. We started the IVF process with another clinic, but a friend of ours recommended RMA, so we switched over to RMA – being that they have the highest ranking in birth rate. We were glad we made the right decision. Both of my pregnancies were wonderful, I did not have any problems and all of my kids were and are strong and healthy today. Thank you RMA, from the bottom of my heart and God bless you all. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to start a family to consider RMA. Once again thank you Dr. Morris and your team over at RMA.
Sincerely, The Wojcik Family
My husband and I went through 1 IUI & 4 IVF cycles with another RE & we were told by him to move forward with a donor. We wanted to seek another opinion & we’re happy we did.
A friend of ours recommended we go see Dr. Eden Rauch in Freehold last year and she had faith that we could get this to work with my own eggs. Luckily we listened and believed in Dr. Rauch & we ended up having 4 (PGD tested) embryos frozen. We did 1 transfer and we are currently 5 months pregnant. Dr. Rauch has been personally committed every single step of the way. Even after graduating, we still keep in contact. Also, the entire staff at Freehold, Eatontown & Basking Ridge are simply just amazing! We’re so thankful for RMANJ!
My husband and I had a wonderful experience with RMA and are now proud parents of a beautiful baby girl! She would not have been possible without RMA. Dr. Forman and the RMA staff were excellent and guided us through the entire IVF process. Based on our positive experience, I would definitely recommend them to others trying to conceive.
Thank you RMA!
We were referred to RMANJ after we weren’t satisfied with our previous re. Since our first appointment we were very impressed with the staff at the Eatontown location. Dr. Molinaro was so nice and explained everything thoroughly.
He answered all our questions and decided on a plan all along making sure we were okay with each detail. Dr. Molinaro himself would do the ultrasounds each morning, giving us the opportunity to bring up any questions or concerns. He is very adept and can do an ultrasound quickly with the least discomfort and excellence! Our nurse Lynette was amazing too. She was so on top of each detail, never missing a thing! She was so caring and professional and explained everything so clearly. We felt confident knowing we had such a great team taking care of us. With G-d’s help we got pregnant pretty soon after we began our journey with rma. Our beautiful little girl is now 5 months old and is the light of our lives. Thank you RMANJ!!
Dear Dr. Rauch, Words can’t describe how grateful my husband and I are that we are finally pregnant due to your perseverance and determination. You are such a kind, caring, sensitive doctor and I can tell during each of my appointments that you truly cared about me as a patient. You are an AMAZING doctor! Going through infertility treatment has been such a stressful time for me and my husband, you have always put me at ease with your bedside manner and it meant a lot to me you calling me on your days off when I was so upset. I plan to recommend you to anyone going through the same infertility struggles as I have, and I promise I will be blogging about you on the RMA website patient blog. Wish you and your family a Happy Holiday and a healthy New Year!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Monique & Joseph
After 18 months of trying to conceive naturally it became clear that we needed to further investigate a possible reason for our struggle. My OB sent my husband and I for tests and the results explained why we were never successful: mobility, count and morphology issues. It was then that we were referred to RMANJ, in particular Dr. Eric Forman.
Our journey with RMA began in November 2014 when Dr. Forman clearly explained our options and that the best chance of success would be going through IVF. We never felt rushed or pressured with Dr. Forman. He always took as much time as needed to help make us feel comfortable and confident in our plan. After two egg retrievals, we had 9 blastocysts and decided it was time for our first transfer. Dr. Forman transferred one blastocyst on Good Friday and 9 days later we found out it was a success. We’re still in complete shock and awe! We feel completely blessed that our dream of becoming parents is becoming a reality. God willing, we will have a little Christmas miracle to hold on our arms this year! We’re forever grateful to Dr. Forman and our nurse Christine for making this journey as smooth as possible, providing endless support, and answering countless questions. Going through infertility and IVF is not an easy journey, however you will find inner strength you never knew possible and the RMA team goes above and beyond for its patients. The best things in life are worth fighting for!

In November of 2014 we got the best phone call ever. A nurse at RMA called to congratulate us!
After what felt like forever of trying to have a baby it happened with the help of Dr. Forman and Joyce in Morristown and all of the rest of the RMA staff that helped us through morning monitoring, 3 IUIs, an egg retrieval and transfers. Today we are the happy parents to a healthy, beautiful baby girl that joined our family on June 28, 2015. Dr. Forman did our last transfer and Joyce held my hand through the entire process until we left RMA. They were my security blanket and I could not imagine not having their knowledge and support throughout the whole process. When the blood test came back negative after a transfer, Joyce sent me a hug through the phone and when I thought the worst happened a few weeks into my pregnancy Dr. Forman calmly walked us through an ultra sound that showed the baby was fine. After I left RMA Joyce was on my list as one of the people I would call when something happened like finding out the sex of the baby and when she was born. My daughter and I went to visit them as well so they could see the baby they helped us have. Everyone that was a part of this journey with us at RMA was wonderful and made this process pleasurable. I would recommend this practice to anyone who needs help in becoming a parent. We have the most beautiful proof that it works. Thank you RMA!

I had visited earlier this day with my husband and I just wanted to share my feedback on the overall experience.
My meeting with Dr. Rita Gulati was very pleasant and so were the staff members in each of the departments. The nurse and the medical examiners had my best interests in mind and I felt most comfortable with the way they addressed and took care of me.
I believe this a strong reflection of the values the organization has and the services definitely exceeded my expectation. Thank you for all that you do.
We wanted so badly to become parents and tried for over a year on our own to finally get pregnant and have a miscarriage. At the age of 34 we thought we had plenty of time. Who would think I had an egg quality problem with no history of infertility in my family? After this miscarriage we went to another center in NJ and underwent 4 IUI and 2 IVF cycles without success. Each one more devastating than the next. We were told to consider an egg donor.
It was time for a change and second opinion and to go where the stats showed the most success. RMA was it. We met with Dr. Scott who finally gave us insight as to why we were not getting pregnant and what our chances really were. He spent SO much time talking to me and explaining to me what our plan was. ONE IVF/FET cycle we were pregnant with twin girls! A double miracle and more than we could have hoped for. I carried them until 37 weeks and they were born healthy and happy – just perfect – they just turned one and have been ahead on every single milestone!
Words and gratitude cannot express what Dr. Scott, Dr. Forman and Nurse Adrienne (along with the entire RMA team) did for us. They gave us our family after years of pain and suffering in ONE cycle. The advanced genetic testing on our embryos allowed the Drs. to transfer our only two genetically normal embryos and give us our little girls. The expertise, attention to detail, caring, compassion and dedication of the RMA team is unreal. I received personal attention and was never treated like a statistic. It is truly amazing what they have given me…my family. They are my miracle. It is amazing.
I wish I went to RMA from the start – but this was my journey and it gave me these two little girls and I am thankful my road led me to RMA.
Proud mother of two amazing RMA girls.

I feel as if I have one of those rare success stories, and I am so very blessed for it!
We tried for almost 4 years to get pregnant, finally deciding to see a different set of doctors before RMA. We tried IUI twice with them, the first time having my ovaries hyper stimulated from way too many meds and no success, and a canceled cycle the 2nd time. Wanting to move forward to IVF, the doctor kept holding us off for one reason or another. I felt at the time he questioned my fiance and I because we were not yet married. Thank god for my acupuncturist who saw my frustration, and once I finally voiced it, highly recommended me to Dr.Molinaro in Eatontown.
Upon my first consult with Dr. M, I knew right then and there we had made the right choice. I only tried one unsuccessful IUI with Dr. M and although he was ok with me doing 3, me being 36 and anxious, we moved to IVF.
My situation was not uncommon…PCOS, but not textbook. I didn’t fit the physical characteristics and I got periods every month. So when we decided to do IVF, we had no idea what to expect. After retrieval, they retrieved 33 follicles, 27 which matured, and left us with 12 high quality embryos in the end. We decided to transfer 2…2 took, but one became a vanishing twin. I had a great pregnancy and on our first IVF try we had a healthy baby girl, Macy Quinn! I almost felt as if it was too easy…such a supportive, educated team of professionals, could I do this again and be just as successful?
On my return visit, about 7 months later, Dr Molinaro explained that he had families within the practice with 3 and 4 kids all from IVF. With our 10 embryos left, all of which were very high quality, we decided to proceed again after doing PGD on these embryos this time. This way, we would have the highest chance of success. However, this cycle I was even more nervous than the first! The first time around I was prepared for failure. When that didn’t happen, I was so positive we could be successful again. But I still had that little voice saying “it’s not 100 percent”. Dr. Molinaro put me at ease, saying how happy he was and that everything would be fine.
The day of transfer was extremely stressful! Not only were we about to go on this journey again, but this time we had to hope we had quality embryos left after PGD! And of course, you don’t find that out until an hour before transfer! Not only were we pleasantly surprised that 5 embryos were considered normal, but this time it was Dr.M himself doing the transfer! We again transferred 2, and after an awful week waiting, the night before my blood test I just had to take a pregnancy test, I couldn’t stand it anymore! Anyone who knows me knows that even if I had missed a period for 2 months, I don’t take pregnancy tests. This time was different…The faint line was there, and the next day was confirmation after I told Alana my nurse what I had done even before having my blood taken. She very simply said “then you are pregnant!” With transfer and no hormones involved, there’s a very rare chance for a false positive. The blood work reaffirmed what the pregnancy test and Alana had confirmed…I was pregnant again!
Two tries and 2 successes…I am scheduled for my C section on July 21st and I’ll be turning 39 in 2 weeks. I have had another great pregnancy and this time we are having a boy. We have always toyed with having 3 kids, and yes, we are considering going back to Dr.Molinaro and their staff for a third try with 3 embryos that have been refrozen. We know its a little harder defrosting embryos for a 2nd time, but was also told by Dr.M that as long as they survive, the embryos are by no means compromised.
I guess in other practices my story would be rare. Being a patient and a witness in another practice, I know the general care and concern for a patient differs, as well as the education and knowledge of the staff. I have sent at least 3 others to Dr.M who had seen the same doctor I was seeing previously. All three were told they didn’t have much chance getting pregnant. And low and behold, with the medical expertise and desire to achieve success for every patient, all three became pregnant first time around! I’m going to leave my story on this note…my acupuncturist (who recommended me to RMA) told me what one of the doctors whom she knew personally from another practice had said about RMA when asked why they are so sucesssful…”they don’t use old medicine and they are just smarter than anyone here”. I second that remark!
My baby was born August 6, 2011 as a result of IVF. He is a happy healthy 2 soon to be 3 year old. I praise God every day for the experience I had through RMA! Thank you doesn’t even begin to say how grateful I am for you and your staff!

Yesterday, was not such a great day for me. I had a missed miscarriage and had to have a D&C. I usually handle anesthesia TERRIBLY, as it makes me vomit for hours. I was scared and sad over the whole situation. Who wouldn’t be right?
Dr. Maguire is my regular doctor at RMA, and her level of care has been so comforting in the past weeks. She was always “hopeful” for me, yet very honest with every possibility. Dr. Bohrer saw me as well during this difficult time, during the monitoring hours. Although I had never met him, his sincerity was comforting. Dr. Gulati, also another doctor I had only met once before, took the time to reassure me about my options of having a natural miscarriage or to have a D&C. She helped to ease my fears over having a surgery, and was very respectful of my possible choice for allowing nature to run its course.
Every doctor I had seen, leading up to yesterday, at RMA treated me with gentle words and heartfelt understanding. My nurse coordinator, Lynette, was always there to answer my questions at every step. The entire nursing staff and the scheduling staff at RMA listened to every fear I had and made me feel “heard” with every single one of them. No matter how many times I had probably repeated myself……they listened and responded with compassion, understanding and reassurance.
So this brings me to the reason for my email. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has taken care of me during this time. I had never met Dr. Molinaro, until yesterday right before the surgery, but his bedside manner, compassion and care eased my fears and was so comforting at the surgical center yesterday. The nurses there were all great too. Everyone listened to my past experiences with anesthesia and the anesthesiologist was amazing. I had a much better experience with it and felt well taken care of. The recovery nurses were also great. In the end, I am glad I chose the route I did. I feel as if I am able to start the healing process, physically and emotionally.
Again, I just wanted to say thank you for making such a difficult time a little easier with all of the kindness I was shown.
With Kindest and Heartfelt Regards,
The doctors, the staff, and the faculty members are all amazing. They are sensitive to a patient’s needs, and understand how hard this can be on couples trying to conceive. Dr. Morris was our doctor, and Dr. Rybak did the transfer that gave us our daughter that is due in November. We went to another clinic before RMA and they were awful. My wife and I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for us.
Thank you for helping answer my prayers. Juliana Grace, 18 months, and Kevin Joseph, 2 days are a direct result of RMA!

The story begins years before I met my husband.I was diagnosed 10 years ago with PCOS. We got married in 2010 and went to a fertility specialist right away.
Three years later, we turned to RMA after we weren’t happy with our fertility clinic and nothing was happening. We then turned to RMA (since friends suggested it/prior or current patients) and within 5 months we had a pregnancy. This year, we did the neXgen study and got pregnant again. Although both pregnancies we’re unsuccessful (one ectopic, one miscarriage), the professional staff and care we got from our doctor, Dr. Shastri, the clinical research team, and numerous nurses we are looking forward to our next step. We couldn’t be happier with RMA and we are staying positive since we have 17 embryos still left! RMA is definitely the best and highly recommended!
Thank you for all the information, innovation, and everything!!
Claudia & Bob
My husband and I were blessed with one child but wanted to grow our family. We wanted to give him a sibling. When he was about two we began this journey. After two years of failed attempts working alongside my OBGYN we knew it was time to move on and we were recommended to RMANJ.
From the first phone call, to making an appointment, I was impressed at the professionalism shown. They showed me a tremendous amount of care and patience and answered all of my questions. When we walked out of our first appointment with Dr. Drews, we felt more confident than we had in the past two years of this journey.
But it did not stop there, I cannot say enough about the support that I received from our nurse Joyce from the very first cycle until our discharge. She was amazing, answered all my questions, and kept me positive on those “down days”.
When we first started in July 2012 Dr. Drews told us “we will have you pregnant by time the leaves are off the trees”. On November 18, 2012 we received news of our positive pregnancy test!!! He stayed true to his word.
On July 23, 2013 our miracle baby girl had blessed our family. She is such a joy to all of us. Without all the help of the doctors and nurses at RMANJ she would not be here making us smile each and every day!! Thank you Dr. Drews, Joyce Maloney, and the entire staff at RMANJ for giving us this gift of life.
Erin and David
We want to thank all the doctors and nurses at RMANJ for the biggest blessing in our lives, our now 6-year old son. I think a more telling testimonial though is that we are also thankful to RMANJ for our most recent experience, in which we were ultimately unable to conceive. Pretty much all the odds were stacked against us (mostly Father Time), but we wanted to look back on this period without regret, and give treatment a last try.
Dr. Bohrer, Maryellen Matthews, and many others (all those hard working medical practitioners, from the doctors and nurses you see at 6 am, to the people who come to work in the andrology lab at 4 in the morning, to the phlebotomists whose lives one gets involved in from daily conversations (thank you to Mara and Jada in the Somerset office), to Finance (thank you Melanie), to surgical scheduling (thank you Amy)) were all pulling for us, as we know they do for everyone. Maryellen, our nurse, has so much to oversee, and saw us through with a steady and supportive hand, and for this we are so grateful. I’m not sure when she – or Dr. Bohrer – manage to take any time off. From the beginning to end, our relationship with Dr. Bohrer was particularly important: we all had an attitude of cautious optimism that kept us going but also protected us from unreasonable expectations. My husband and I are both scientists, and in many ways, medicine is not a science – everybody is different, and as with all things in life, sometimes one just needs a little bit of luck. Dr. Bohrer understands this balance very well and conveys it with great clarity. Our most recent experience allowed us to better appreciate the more than little bit of luck that gave us our son 6 years ago, and to close out this journey with a real appreciation for what all the professionals at RMANJ do.
In honor of National Infertility Awareness Week I would like to share our journey with you. After 2.5 years of trying to conceive, IVF and the amazing doctors at Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey have blessed us with two miracles that will be arriving this October. Dr. Kim and the entire staff at RMANJ restored my faith and hope in having a child. 1 in 8 couples deal with infertility. Anyone who may be silently struggling please know you are not alone.
Vanessa M. Hauman
Providing patients the thorough evaluation & info to make their own decisions as your office did for my wife & I. Thank Dr. Molinaro. We had a bad experience with our first RE. Saw him and helped us make a decision that was ours.
A salute to all the warriors who battle or have battled infertility. For their courage to face whatever diagnosis they have been given. For their ability to see light at the end of the tunnel despite what they are facing. For their strength to pick up the pieces after failed attempts or tragedy. For their will to keep fighting until their dreams become a reality. Some ask are superheroes real? My answer is: YES
I have never been happier since I switched to RMA, with Dr. Molinaro. He has given me new hope. I also LOVE Alana my nurse, & everyone else in the office. It’s such a change of pace for me, to have my doctor do every single ultra sound during monitoring, call me personally & continuously encourage & support me. He put a lot of thought into changing my protocol from my last doctor…I had my retrieval yesterday and got by far the most eggs and the best fertilization report I’ve ever gotten!! I feel so lucky to be under his care. I’m excited for what’s to come!!!!!
I cannot thank RMA enough for the knowledge and emotional support I have received since becoming a patient. When I made the initial appointment at RMA I was feeling pretty defeated since we already had three failed IVF cycles. My doctor understood my worries and both my husband and I felt hopeful.
While that cycle did not result in a pregnancy, it was still a successful cycle in my opinion. We finally had a diagnosis that helped us understand why previous efforts did not work. My doctor met with us hours after we learned the cycle failed and spent a good amount of time explaining the diagnosis. With this knowledge, we have continued hope that we will have a baby, even if the journey there is a little longer than most.
Throughout my journey with infertility, hope has not always been there. But since becoming a patient, I have never stopped being hopeful. I feel hopeful after every appointment. My nurse restores my hope when I need support and I’m confused about my next steps or I lose my notes (this happens a lot). And when I’m just having one of those days, RMA’s Pinterest page can usually cheer me up and remind me that all hope isn’t lost.
Thank you RMA for everything you have done for me and my husband. We were blessed to welcome our twins Landon James and Kylie Olivia born on February 5th, 2014. Special thank you to Dr Drews and our wonderful nurse Joyce. We’re both still wearing and refuse to take off our stay positive bracelets.
Rebecca & Eric Southard
Dear Dr. Molinaro, Dr. Morris, Nurse Beth, Nurse Bernadette, and RMANJ Support Team:
We just wanted to thank you for the excellent service provided while we were under your care last year. We are happy to let you know that our daughter was born earlier this summer on June 4th at 39 weeks. She weighed 6 pounds 4 ounces and there were no complications with the (vaginal) delivery. She is an alert yet calm baby, and has been growing steadily these past few months.
We understood that the chances for a successful conception were slim, so feel blessed to share this news.
Our son was also an RMANJ “success story” when he was born on June 1, 2008, thanks to the treatment led by Dr. Michael Slowey. So, we definitely feel doubly blessed. Your high success rate and results speak for themselves, but we also appreciate the ‘human’ touch you provided as part of the care we received. Thank you!
Elise & Joseph
Special thanks to the nurses & doctors at RMANJ. They took real good care of me this morning. Appreciated!
When I was a frightened, a tearful mess, Dr. Bohrer inspired my confidence and was prepared with quality Kleenex. All in all, Dr. Bohrer with the soft-spoken voice will remain – in my mind – THE Godfather of surgeons because I will tell you that my fibroids put up one hell of a fight. Thank you for having this incredible surgeon on your team.
Dear Dr. Bergh,
We want to share with you the wonderful news about the birth of our daughter on June 24, 2011. If it wasn’t for you and your wonderful team, she would not be here. It truly is a dream come true…and for this we are deeply grateful. As you know IVF is a stressful process, but your team made us feel confident we would finally take home a baby.
Rhonda was my wonderful nurse and her genuine compassion for her patients was very comforting. Beth, also, greeted me with a smile and caring concern at each of my visits to the Englewood office. Every doctor I saw during monitoring was professional, informative and answered all my questions. Even the embryologist was wonderful in giving her recommendations just minutes before our transfer! RMANJ deserves the recognition for its’ advanced procedures, success rates and wonderful staff. You have made the dream of having a family a reality for us…and thousands across the world. We are forever grateful. Wishing you and your team continued success!
Karen & Roger
Dr. Costantini, This does not even come close to representing all of the gratitude we have in our hearts for you and all of your help during this entire process. Because of you, our dreams are much closer to becoming a reality. We will be forever grateful that you were our doctor.
Christina and Lee
Dr. Molinaro, I wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed the IVF webinar last night. I will be doing my first cycle in July and found it to be very informative and encouraging. Thanks!
MartiAnn Schenck’s Story
I am going to start from the end instead of the beginning. I feel like this moment right now defines every piece of our journey.
I, unfortunately, cannot tell you we are pregnant or we have a beautiful baby crying itself to sleep. I, also, cannot tell you I didn’t get pregnant after all of the endless trying. I sit here in my 2ww feeling every twinge, cramp, stomachache thinking it might finally be my turn.
I have been with RMANJ for quite some time. It isn’t their fault my time there has been longer than most women expect to spend with their RE. In fact, they are the only practice that was willing to take on my case. They were willing to try when all other practices were more concerned with their statistics. I remember the dreadful diminished ovarian reserve diagnosis. I thought it was a joke. Why me? What did I do to deserve this? I was going to beat this! I believed in us, and luckily so did Dr. Scott.
The nurses, doctors, financial coordinators, front desk staff, phlebotomists, were there for us every step of the way. We were always greeted by smiling faces at very early morning monitoring. Our financial coordinator, Grace, fought through every insurance denial and insurance change. My nurse Mary Ellen shared every bit of good news and bad news as if it was her own. Sandi in IVF pushing me that little extra mile. It was amazing how all of them knew just when we needed that little bit extra support.
They were my support team. My husband was my rock! He NEVER missed an appointment. It didn’t matter if it was a simple blood draw or an ultrasound. It didn’t matter if it was a beautiful day or if we had 10 inches of snow. He was there proud to be part of it. Month after month he held my hand when I gave myself shots, he shared my joys, and sadly he shared my sorrow. He even supported me in my 15 lb. weight gain. He had no idea what the doctors were talking about when they said we had 3 follicles, or when they said my uterine lining was a 6.8. They would leave the room and he would look at me with wide eyes and say “is that good.” It was his journey too.
I know most infertility patients define themselves by how many IUI or IVF cycles they did before they got their “BFP”. We are not defined by how many cycles; rather, we are a couple who learned how to take things one step at a time. Our next step is to hear those 3 glorious words…YOU ARE PREGNANT.
