Syracuse-based fertility clinic facilitated the birth of over 20,000 babies
By Deborah Jeanne Sergeant
Board-Certified Reproductive Endocrinologist Rob Kiltz couldn’t imagine in 1997 that his concept of a low-cost fertility clinic would spawn eight fertility clinics and four good-focused spas. -to be.
One of the reasons her practice has been so successful is that it offers fertility treatments at affordable prices.
CNY Fertility treatments start at $ 4,900. The national average is $ 12,000 and in some clinics costs can reach $ 30,000.
CNY Fertility also provides in-house financing, virtually unprecedented in the industry, without a credit check. Over 20,000 babies have been born thanks to the work of CNY Fertility.
Currently, Kiltz operates fertility centers and spas in Syracuse, Rochester, Atlanta and Albany and fertility centers without spas in Buffalo, Montreal, Colorado Springs and Philadelphia.
In addition to breaking down financial barriers to care, Kiltz accepts more difficult cases, such as age, body mass index, and low hormone levels. Any of these problems can make pregnancy more difficult, and some fertility clinics refuse to work with these patients.
CNY Fertility offers in vitro fertilization, genetic testing, reproductive immunology, frozen embryo transfer and elective single embryo transfer. CNY Fertility works with local providers in patients’ homes for preliminary testing and monitoring. This helps reduce travel costs, another benefit for patients.
Offices with spas offer wellness treatments including acupuncture, skin care, massage therapy, and yoga for fertility.
âWe also bring our healing arts to partner with other practitioners in the area,â Kiltz said. “We are in contact with acupuncture, yoga and massage therapists around New York City and beyond to help grow their businesses when it comes to those seeking fertility.”
The Healing Arts Centers support patients seeking help for other problems, including pain, anxiety, and depression.
The pandemic has been a busy time for CNY Healing Arts and CNY Fertility.
âPeople want more natural ways to take care of their health and maybe the focus is more on families and building families,â Kiltz said. “They may suffer from anxiety, depression and they seek a combination of Western treatments and the integration of Eastern modalities like yoga, meditation, prayer, acupuncture and massage.”
Kiltz said his colleagues in the fertility world have also expressed that their businesses are busy.
âWhen we see the enormous loss of human life, maybe it makes us realize that our families are so important,â Kiltz said. âWhen it doesn’t happen naturally, we look for it. “
Currently, Kiltz is working on expanding CNY Fertility in Syracuse and developing Fertile Spirit, online emotional support and online fertile yoga. As an unexpected result of the pandemic, much of Kiltz’s time these days is spent on conference calls or video conferences with customers around the world.
He has launched a line of private label supplements to support fertility in both men and women.
As for his current goals for CNY Fertility and CNY Healing arts, “it’s about supporting our practitioners to better provide care to their clients,” Kiltz said.
âWe want people to know who we are, what we are and what we do. It focuses on how our practitioners can better share their knowledge through live webinars, supplements, and other services that may not require clients to come and see them personally.
This strategy can help increase the reach of CNY Fertility and CNY Healing Arts, regardless of where clients live.
âWe hope to strengthen this even more,â he added. âIt’s not one way or the other. We need both senses, so we want to incorporate the personal touch face to face. It is required for acupuncture and massage, but self-care and acupressure points, meditation, prayer, yoga, and tai chi can be learned from a distance. Or, take a nature walk to listen to an inspiring podcast from one of our practitioners.
He plans to open a fertility clinic in Sarasota, Florida in a few months and is targeting California, Texas and the Midwest.
âI might consider franchising this someday, but it’s the personal touch that really matters to people,â Kiltz said. âI started 25 years ago and I never dreamed it would develop so much in this period of time. We see the need for more affordable fertility care and the healing arts. If we keep the dream there, it will happen.
