Welcoming New patients to IHR

Preparing For Your First Visit To IHR

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Institute for Human Reproduction. We are here to guide you through the process of diagnosis and treatment, starting with your initial consultation with your physician and nurse coordinator here at one of our clinics. The goal of this first visit is to thoroughly evaluate your medical history, outline a diagnostic plan to determine the specific needs of your case, and to design a treatment plan that is customized to your individual situation. Your doctor and nurse coordinator will be spending one-on-one time with you during this initial visit, making you an informed and knowledgeable participant in your treatment.

To assist you in preparing your first visit, we have outlined some commonly asked questions regarding what to expect during and after your consultation, materials and information to bring with you, and important pre-consultation reminders.

Dr. Cohen and his staff were a complete blessing to our family. We just welcomed our identical twin girls this past month, and we owe it all to Dr. Cohen and the staff at IHR.


After being devastated from 2 miscarriages at a previous clinic I switched to Dr. TK. I became pregnant on my first round of IVF with him and have 6 frozen embryos.


I am so glad my OB doctor recommended IHR to anyone with infertility issues or concerns.


At IHR, the nurses and ultrasounds techs and lab techs all knew me by name... I just felt like everyone there was really rooting for me.


After more than two years of trying without success, we pursued fertility treatment with Dr. Cohen.


I'm writing this review as my infant daughter naps nearby, which would not have been possible without Dr. Tur-Kaspa and the team at IHR.


I immediately felt like he was addressing ME and MY needs, as opposed to having a protocol that may have worked for the massess.


From the very beginning, we felt strongly supported and received the very best personalized care.


It can be overwhelming but I never felt any discomfort from any procedure I had done there and I knew each was getting us closer to our goal of becoming parents.


After having no luck on our own, a friend highly recommended that we go to IHR. I am happy to say that I am currently pregnant with my first child! I do not have enough kind words to say. Everyone at IHR was wonderful.
