Let me begin by first stating that my wife and I have had a very long road dealing with infertility. 3 years, several surgeries and 6 or seven miscarriages...I stopped counting because they seem to all blend together. We first started with another local doctor and after several failed ivf treatments, we decided to see Dr Damien even though he was out of network. He reviewed our history and told us we would be pregnant. I am proud to announce that my wife and I will be the parents of twin baby boys. We love Dr Damien and owe the world to him.

Only with this doc for three months and got pregnant with IVF. First visit in January and had IVF in March, worried that he was rushing us but said my husband's sperm was low for IUI. We had 3 embryos put back and just found out one has a heartbeat. Can't wait to be a mom all thanks to Dr Damien.

I have one word to describe Dr. Damien- SLOPPY! He is sloppy in the operating room and his paperwork. I went to Dr. Damien for fertility issues. When I first met him, he gave me such hope because he said he is very aggressive in his treatment. In the testing that he did, he recommended that I have a hysteroscopy and laparoscopy. Dr. Damien performed the surgery and while conducting the surgery, he found some other issues and decided to take care of them. A week after the surgery, I ended up in the emergency room because Dr. Damien ??accidentally? hit an area of my intestines while conducting the surgery. I ended up being in the hospital for 6 days because of Dr. Damien. While in the hospital, Dr. Damien was condescending and rude to my husband when he questioned the course of treatment. I was out of work for a month. Now I am still not back to normal. Dr. Damien??s nurse keeps leaving me messages saying that I need to come in to see Dr. Damien for a follow up. There is no way Dr. Damien will ever come near my body again. I have seen three doctors since this nightmare and all have said that he did too many procedures at one time. To top all of this off, my husband picked up my paperwork from Dr. Damien??s office and there is a major error in it. Part of the information that was typed up from the day of my surgery is clearly not mine. Hopefully he did not mix my information up with someone else??s records. I suggest that if you are a current patient of Dr. Damien??s that you get a copy of your records. And Dr. Damien, I suggest you review every patients file because the information in my file is clearly not mine. Because of Dr. Damien??s error, I owe thousands of dollars in hospital/doctors bills. Dr. Damien has the nerve to keep sending me bills after what he has done. I really do wish that I would have researched Dr. Damien more before I went ahead with this surgery. All we wanted was to get pregnant and I have no idea if that will happen now. If you would like additional information, please email me at mlchy3@yahoo.com

After reviewing the background of the reproductive endocrinologists in my area, I decided on Dr. Damien -- however he did not take my insurance at the time. I went to two other REs in NJ before going to Dr. Damien. Both were competent , but they did not thoroughly review my history given that they each performed the same tests, and neither listened to my concerns each time a procedure failed (4 IUIs and 1 failed IVF). They seem to have a formula that they stick with that makes them look like they have great statistics because they do not take higher risk patients in order to show good stats without thinking outside the box. And I spent more time with their nurses than I did with the doctors.

Dr. Damien started taking my insurance plan last year, and so I decided to see him after having already accepting that I was not meant to have a baby. It was the best decision of my life. He reviewed my history in detail and did not duplicate tests. . He detected other reasons for my infertility that other doctors never even considered and went over his recommended plan in detail. Not only that -- he actually listened to my concerns and a few weeks later he surprised me when he talked about those concerns as an aside to another conversation. WOW -- a doctor who actually listens! My husband even mentioned that he seemed genuinely interested in making this work for us, not just for the statistics required to be reported to the government and which are made available to the public. On top of that, he actually included me and my husband in the decision-making process at each step of the process. It was a relief to know that our concerns and requests would not be ignored. And it worked! At 42 years old, I'm due to have my baby in 9 weeks! Dr. Damien is truly a Godsend.

Thanks to Dr. Damien, I am 8 weeks pregnant! My husband and I are so thankful to Dr. Damien for helping us get pregnant, after two failed IUI at another clinic. Dr. Damien is extremely knowledgeable, and unlike the previous clinic (who was unaggressive both times and seemed more money hungry than helpful) really got to the root of our infertility issue, solved it so that our first IUI was a success! We were pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the finances were, and how compassionate Dr. Damien was to work with us so that we concentrated on the procedure and not on the financial stress. We highly recommend Dr. Damien as he really is a miracle worker - and that really is the overall feeling from his other patients that I have met!!

Thanks to IVF and Dr. Damien I have two perfect children. Now 8 and 6 years old, I never had a better experience with any doctor in my life. He explained everything to the letter. Even the entire staff was caring, professional, and concerned for my husband and I. They even handled the finances, as to make things easy for us so we could concentrate on the procedures that we were going through. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a baby and is having trouble. I am sorry for anyone that has had complications, but remember that every one is different, heals differently, and bodies react differently. My experience was beyond excellent!

I did not have to have surgery but did do IVF with Dr Damien. I did an IUI 3 years ago and had my first baby, I tried 4 IUIs this time but they did not work, I am 38 now and did not want to waste anymore time so we did an egg retrieval - we got 5 eggs and had 3 put back and now are waiting for our second baby in August. I think he is a good guy who is very direct. He does seem busy but I think this means that people know he is a good doctor and so a lot of women will come to seek his services.

I had surgery by Dr Damien 6 months ago for endometriosis and have nothing but good things to say- not only did I stop having pain during my periods - that I had for 15 years - I got pregnant 2 months after the surgery. My recovery was OK, I felt pretty bad for 2 days but went back to work no problem in Monday. We are due in October and credit Dr Damien with everything. I am not sure what happened to this girl Kim but three of my other friends went through the same thing as me and they all got pregnant too after surgery - one for a fibroid and two for endometriosis.

I just returned from Atlanta, Georgia where I had a follow up laparoscopy because of the pain I was feeling since my last one with Dr Damien. The doctor found that my ovary was completely stuck, my bladder was adhered to my uterus and my bowels were completely adhered to my intestines. The previous surgery caused scar tissue that adhered my iternal organs together. If anyone suggests laser surgery to you, do your homework. Patients should be warned of the real risk of adhesions.

I have had nothing but major complications following surgery for endometriosis by Dr Damien. It has been four months since my surgery and it has been a nightmare for me. He does not explain his procedure before the surgery. He fills your abdomen with saline after surgery which is not common practice among any endometriosis specialists. When I went back to him for my follow up and explained the problems that I was having he said to me that I should not be having problems because"he fixed me" and that "I was never satisfied." Last week I went to an endometriosis specialist in New York and during an internal exam he could feel the endometriosis that was left during the previous surgery. He said that even the op report of my surgery was filled out wrong and had very little detail written in it. Dr Damien also left a fibroid inside me because he claimed that it was impossible to remove through laparoscopy and that I would need a laparotomy to remove it. The specialist in New York said that it was quite possible to remove it during a laparoscopy. Now four months since my surgery with Dr Damien and being in constant pain(which I did not have prior to surgery) I am facing surgery again. I would like to hear from anyone who has had a similar experience with this doctor. Please email me at kimberlyecanonico@hotmail.com. Thanks. Kimberly

Dr. Damien is on the cutting edge for infertility treatment. He thoroughly discusses the issues with the patient and spouse and does plenty of testing. He is also listens to the patient and is willing to tailor the treatment based on their concerns. Billing practices are good although they are expensive as are all fertility specialists.

PROS: Up to date on fertility treatment
CONS: Expensive
