What Patients Are Saying About Dr. Talebian
“After multiple failed IVF’s and an IUI at two different clinics, CCRM was our last hope and best foot forward. A friend highly recommended Dr. Talebian / CCRM and we’re so glad she did. From the get-go, we noticed a difference. Dr. Talebian spent an hour and half with us going through our questions, when our previous doctors would only spend a few minutes and provide vague, unhelpful answers. Dr. Talebian thoroughly reviewed our previous results, walked us through protocol options, and ways to prep for best results. We did several retrievals w Dr. Talebian and were regularly in touch. No question was too trivial – she was always empathetic and supportive. No email or phone call went unanswered for more than 24-48 hours. We had some hiccups later in the pregnancy after we graduated and she still made herself available. The staff took the time to get to know our names and it felt like we celebrated together when we finally made it to a transfer. Many thanks CCRM for hope.”
“Dr. Talebian is patient, knowledgeable, compassionate, creative and hardworking. She kept my nerves at ease, she problem solved, sent me to the best additional specialists and was committed to our success. She kept things light and friendly which I also really appreciated. She was flexible with my treatment plan and took into account my lifestyle. I genuinely loved my experience at CCRM from each nurse to doctor, they were kind and helpful and I even sort of missed them after I “graduated”. The portal was fantastic and they got back to me quickly. If I needed the doctor I was able to get in touch with her. I think that Dr. Talebian also prescribed the perfect doses of medication and was incredibly thoughtful. You really do not feel like a number at CCRM. Fertility issues are extremely challenging but they make miracles happen seamlessly and comfortably. I cannot recommend her or her team enough.”
“I did two rounds of cryopreservation at CCRM with Dr. Talebian. I couldn’t have asked for better care. Dr. Talebian was positive but straight-shooting, energetic and clearheaded. I always felt supported and had opportunity to ask questions; she was present at every stage of the process. Meanwhile, the entire staff at CCRM was attentive and kind. I couldn’t be more thankful for the nursing staff for their availability to answer questions and the amazing care they gave me before and after each retrieval. I feel so lucky to have chosen CCRM for this process and would recommend the practice, and especially Dr. Talebian, to anyone considering this process.”
“I had a wonderful experience with Dr Talebian. I feel so lucky that I found CCRM when I did, and that she was my doctor. I found IVF to be such a stressful experience, but knowing that I could fully trust my doctor and medical team made everything so much easier. We had a few twists and turns along our journey but Dr Talebian was always very practical and reassured me that things would work out, and she was right. I truly cannot recommend her enough! Hoping to go back to her for #2 soon.”
“CCRM New York is an outstanding facility to team with during your fertility journey. I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Sheeva Talebian and the doctors, nurses and staff at this practice! You are treated like a human and more so like you are the most important patient at all times. Dr. Talebian became more like a friend than a doctor in the way that she communicated with me and ensured that she was doing everything possible to make my dream of becoming a mom a reality. I can’t express enough how much the CCRM facility and team create such a positive environment and experience which I think play a huge factor in gaining a positive outcome when trying to get pregnant. I’m grateful for everything that Dr. Talebian and the CCRM team did for me!”
“Following several unsuccessful cycles with another practice, I reached out to Dr. Sheeva Talebian. Her knowledge, compassion, empathy and genuine interest in me was incredible (she made me feel like her only patient and top priority). After our first interaction, I took comfort in knowing the experience would be positive regardless of the outcome. In addition, I can’t say enough about the organization and the team -the front desk, the nurses, the doctors, the lab and the billing department is a truly a family that loves what they do and it shows. Thanks to the entire staff, after my first try at CCRM I am eight months pregnant and know that I never would have gotten here without Dr. Sheeva Talebian.”
“Dr. Talebian and the staff at CCRM helped my husband and I achieve what we couldn’t elsewhere- a beautiful baby! They have scheduled monitoring appointments which makes the process less stressful and are responsive when you have questions. We also really appreciated that Dr Talebian called us herself with all results!”
