What happens when a family seemingly has everything, yet the one thing they are desperate for eludes them? GENESIS Fertility & Reproductive Medicine, the brainchild of Dr. Richard Grazi, is not a promise of happiness or a secret to prenatal success; what it is though, is a beacon of hope when to some it seems there is non left.
Dr. Grazi is smart, soft-spoken, and very sure. When asked why he chose this field, he immediately replies, “You must know that it is far and away the greatest field of medicine . . . Just by virtue of the human drama that we need to deal with every day and how, with God’s help, we create new families, mine is a field unlike any other. While it’s not that often that we get to save a person’s life, we do get to change our patients’ lives. We change the whole psychodynamics of the family that hopefully emerges. And that is a difference that is everlasting.”
He recalls, “The thought of becoming a doctor came late to me, actually during my post-high school stint in an Israeli yeshiva. I never thought about becoming a gynecologist. But I had an epiphany after my first year of medical school, when the first “test tube baby” was born. The birth of this one baby, and how it was accomplished, all seemed so exciting and fresh. It was something new, scientific but very artful, very out-of-the-box. I was interested in both genetics as well as surgery, so it was a good combination.”
In addition to being on the cutting edge medically, GENESIS was also among the first medical practices to use digital charting. “Communication between staff is as important as communication with patients.” Dr. Grazi explains, “For this reason everything here is electronic…. Because there are so many different aspects to the care of each couple, we all need simultaneous access to information. In this way we keep our very anxious patients informed.”
GENESIS is truly a masterpiece, a full service infertility program with board certified reproductive endocrinologists – listed yearly among Castle Connolly’s America’s Top Doctors and New York Times Super Doctors. For over 25 years, Dr. Grazi and his expert staff consistently achieve & exceed national pregnancy rates while at the same time maintaining one of the lowest multi fetal pregnancy rates. At GENESIS we treat patients and not statistics! We’re open 365 days a year. With multiple fertility centers in the NYC area, GENESIS serves fertility patients from Brooklyn, Staten Island, Long Island, and lower Manhattan New York.
