My husband and I are forever grateful for the amazing staff at Infertility and IVF Medical Associated of WNY!!! The doctors and staff were so compassionate with us! They explained our options and kept us strong during treatment! We remember the special day when we had our appointment to check for the heartbeat of our singleton. To our surprise, there were two heartbeat flickers on the ultrasound screen; identical twins! These little miracle boys (Brayson and Riley) just turned two! Dr. Griffin and Dr. Sullivan will always be our heroes for giving us the family we always dreamed and hoped for! Thank You!!!



We tried to conceive for 2 years with help from my OB/GYN prior to coming to Buffalo IVF. My OB/GYN highly recommended that I meet with Dr. Griffin, as he was "the best" in the area. I knew when I first met Dr. Griffin that he was a great man who was going to do everything he could for us. Our first try was not successful like we had hoped it would be. Dr. Griffin then recommend laparoscopic surgery to remove cysts that I had. The surgery led to several more discoveries, one of which was a diagnosis of endometriosis. Unfortunately, we were still not successful with traditional IVF, so we chose the option of using a donor egg. We went through Donor Egg Bank USA and chose the woman whom we felt was the best fit for our family. After a long process, we are so thrilled to have come out of it all with our beautiful boy, Dante James.



Before going to Buffalo IVF, I felt hopeless. I tried doing infertility treatments through my OB/GYN. Cycle after cycle, no improvements were made. After 6 months pursuing treatment with my OB/GYN, I made the decision to check out Buffalo IVF. From the first meeting, Dr. Sullivan was so helpful and reassuring. I always felt like I was his only patient. He was always so caring. When our first cycles weren't successful, I felt that he was as sad as we were. I will always thank this man for giving me my first-born child. HE made me a parent and I am forever grateful to him for that. Then, with the help of Dr. Griffin, we were able to add to our family again. I love Buffalo IVF so much and look forward to going back there again. To anyone going through infertility, I just want them to know they're not alone. You have cheerleaders in the staff at Buffalo IVF. If you're having trouble conceiving, just go straight to the pros, they know what they're doing!



Colby and her team of experienced professionals made my dream come true I thought I would never become a mother. The professionals at buffalo IVF gave me hope they were patient and kind. They held my hand and encouraged me when times were rough. I now an holding my heart in my hands no words could ever express how grateful I am. Thank you ❤️❤️


Let me start by saying that I have been to a considerable number of doctors over the years to manage challenging chronic health conditions. So when my husband and I came to Dr. Bartels in the summer of 2021 with difficulty conceiving our first child and a prior diagnosis of "unexplained infertility" from another fertility clinic in the area, I didn't have the highest of hopes. Having my concerns dismissed by medical professionals at other practices was a routine experience for me. What my husband and I received from Dr. Bartels was far different.

One of the most valuable strengths of Dr. Bartels' medical care is her willingness to listen and take the concerns of her patients seriously. I came to our consults with many questions and specific concerns based on past health challenges, and she took the time to address each issue thoroughly. Never once did Dr. Bartels rush my husband and I through an appointment, even when the allotted "15 minutes" of patient interaction that insurance companies often urge doctors to follow was surpassed.

Dr. Bartels offered several avenues of diagnosis and treatment options, not pressuring us to follow a course of action we were uncomfortable with. Ultimately, she recommended diagnostic laparoscopy to detect suspected endometriosis. We felt confident in her recommendation, and the surgery resulted in a successful diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis.

One month after treatment, my husband and I were able to conceive our little miracle naturally after years of infertility. We couldn't have been more surprised or happier.

If we were still on the TTC journey and had not yet conceived, I would still offer the highest praise for Dr. Bartels and her level of medical excellence and care. A doctor who excels in her field AND who listens to her patients is a treasure. That's exactly what we found in Dr. Bartels. Can't recommend her enough.


My husband and I want to thank everyone at Buffalo IVF for their expertise and support. After being referred by a co-worker and my obgyn we started our journey there in September of 2019 and with the help of meds and IUI by January 2020 we were pregnant! We welcomed our beautiful baby girl in September. After we were set to transfer to our obgyn for regular prenatal appts we had some issues that couldn't wait and they got us in, during the pandemic, to ease our minds. We fully recommend Buffalo IVF and will not hesitate to call them if we need help in the future. Thank you!


After an excruciating year trying to conceive. Finally got up the courage to contact an infertility specialist. I was treated so well, and felt so comfortable and confident that the treatment I was provided would one day help me conceive my little angel that I prayed for, for so long. Dr. Griffin and his staff are amazing. After 6 short months of synthroid and letrozole, my angel was finally created! Thank you SO much to the Buffalo IVF team!


Dr. Griffin helped us to a successful conception of our third child. We had 3 miscarriages in two years with multiple genetic and radiographic tests showing nothing at my regular OB and were beginning to lose hope on expanding our family. I found buffalo IVF and asked my OB to send me here. Within the first couple appointments Dr. Griffin did a Saline Infused Sonography and found adhesions. He surgically removed these within the next month and we just celebrated the birth of our third child February 2, 2019 just a year after my first appointment at Buffalo IVF. The staff was very supportive during the first months of my pregnancy and let me stay until I felt comfortable moving to an OB closer to my home town. It was well worth the monthly and bi-monthly 2 hour trip to be able to have this precious bundle of joy. I am so thankful that we found Buffalo IVF and would like to thank the team that they have!


My husband and I are forever grateful to Dr Griffin and the staff at IVF! Dr Griffin has such a calm caring bedside manner and makes his patients feel so comfortable. He helped us in a time of uncertainty and in need and always reassured us! He is amazing. Thanks to him he gave us the encouragement and confidence to try again when our 1st attempt failed. And Thank God he did because it WORKED! We had a rough start early on but he was always right there to comfort us! I highly recommed him and BUFFALO IVF! They give hope and life to many! My son Havyn is almost 9 months old now! Cant believe it. I look back on almost 3 years ago when we first started till now and all the tears pain injections travels were WORTH THE WAIT! SEPTEMEBER 27 2017 was the BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES! Our miracle RAINBOW BABY came into the world and i left a message for Dr Griffin the next day after he was born and he called me back with his well wishes!!! How great was that!!! Our son HAVYN STORM truly was so lucky to have such amazing doctors!. Thank you!!!! Love The Hendryx's


After losing triplets in the 2nd trimester, we met with Dr. Griffin, who worked out a plan to help us conceive one baby. We were successful on our 3rd IUI and went on to have our wonderful daughter after 5 long years of struggling with miscarriages and infertility. I couldn’t recommend Dr.Griffin and Buffalo IVF enough! Without them, I wouldn’t have my little miracle!

My husband Todd & I would like extend a heartfelt thanks to Dr. Sullivan, the wonderful nursing staff and the rest of the people at Buffalo IVF. After some initial treatments and discussion with Dr. Sullivan my husband & I got healthier and I lost over 100lbs. We went back to see Dr. Sullivan and started treatments again and in March 2014 we gave birth to a beautiful HEALTHY baby girl! We cannot say enough about the kindness and compassion the nursing staff showed. Dr. Sullivan gave us the motivation we needed to get healthy so we could experience the greatest joy of our lives!


We can never fully express our gratitude to Dr. Griffin and the rest of the Buffalo Infertility and IVF staff. We came to Buffalo Infertility and IVF feeling discouraged and empty in our journey to have a family. After our first consultation with Dr. Griffin, we were filled with so much hope and a positivity that we had lost. Dr. Griffin is EVERYTHING that you hope for in a Doctor. He is compassionate, kind, sincere, personable and most importantly competent and knowledgeable. He made us feel like he was personally invested in our outcome and supported us through every step of our IVF journey. He would personally call us at home to discuss our lab results or progress as well as personally return phone calls when I had questions or concerns. Nothing ever seemed like it was too much trouble to Dr. Griffin. I never felt like Dr. Griffin had another patient waiting. In fact, he would encourage us to ask all our questions and made sure we fully understood everything before walking out of his office. My husband and I are one of the lucky ones. We are expecting Twins in June from our first round of IVF. To that, we have Dr. Griffin to thank. Not just because he made it medically and scientifically possible but also because he made us able to believe in success and a miracle. Because of Dr. Griffin, I now know what it truly means to be eternally grateful to someone.


Back in about 1999, my husband and I realized that having a baby wasn't going to be as easy as we had expected. We began treatment with my OB/GYN - and had at least 6 rounds of insemination with fertility drugs - one of which resulted in a miscarriage. In 2000, we decided to give IVF a try - but at a different facility (since that's where our insurance was accpeted). After 3 failed attempts, we were fortunate enough to find out that Buffalo IVF was now participating with our insurance, but it would be our last attempt at IVF. We had 6 good embyros ... 3 were transferred in Sept. 2001 - resulting in a son born in June 2002. The other 3 embryos were frozen - and in March 2003, we decided to give them a try. That transfer also resulted in the birth of our second son in October 2003. We were happy!!! Our family was perfect!!! But - in Jan. 2005, I wasn't feeling "right". Just for the heck of it, I tried a home pregnancy test - and it was POSITIVE ... with NO fertility drugs or doctor's intervention!!! We couldn't have been happier. With my history, we had many sonograms during the first trimester. All were wonderful. At 13 weeks, however, I was at my specialized sonogram, which seemed to be taking an extra long time. When the doctor came in to give me the results of the sonographer's work, he asked if we had a sonogram before this one. Yes - all was good. "Hmmm ... no one bothered to tell you there are TWO in there??" Are you kidding????? Twins!!!! On our own!!! We owe so much to Dr. Sullivan and the staff - for getting us started! They are thought of often in our house - and our story has been shared so many times - all with fond words and great thanks to everyone at Buffalo IVF!!!!!

Just wanted to thank Dr. griffin for everything he has done for me and my husband.. we came to him after a year of speaking with a Canadian OB who refused to reverse my tubal litigation because he believed I had a zero percent chance of conceiving a child. After much research we decided to contact the Buffalo IVF clinic and booked our reversal after a couple months of appointments. Dr. Griffin, his staff, and the hospital nurses were amazing, so professional, and really nice. After the surgery I became pregnant within 2 months and we have enjoyed every moment with our son since he was born 4 months ago... he is truly a miracle to us. Thank you


When my husband and I found out that he had low count and low morphology sperm we were devastated. I always had problems with my period and we had been trying to get pregnant for over a year. Dr. Sullivan helped us feel more optimistic and started treatments right away. First we tried pills and IUIs, but none of them worked. Then we moved to injectables and IUIs, but after a few months I still wasn't pregnant. I remember the pain and the stress everytime that I would get my period... The nurses and the staff at the clinic made it easier to endure. They always had warm and positive words for us, making me feel optimistic. One of the most important things in this difficult journey is never giving up on your desire to be a mother. We decided to move into IVF. It was the best decision we ever made! It is worth the time, the surgery and the money!  Dr. Sullivan did a fantastic job and we had 7 embryos and we transfered the best 2.  None were left for freezing. We waited and... there it was a positive pregnancy test!  First ever!  Unbelievable! But life was still keeping a few more tears for us because I miscarried within a few days.... Never give up!  We tried a second round of IVF and we had fantastic embryos this time!  They made it to day 5 and we had 3 to freeze!  Dr. Griffin, another wonderful doctor, performed the transfer and... Pregnant again!  This time it seemed like it was going to stick, however I had constant pain and bleeding episodes... It was a subchorionic hemorrage and I could lose the baby!  We went through hell, crying everyday thinking we could lose the pregnancy but... we didn't.  Noah was born a few months ago and he is the most magical thing that has ever happened to me.  He is healthy and beautiful.  I will always be thankful to Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Griffin.  Put yourself in their expert hands and never give up on your dream.


I want to thank the doctors and staff of Buffalo IVF.  Everybody was very kind and caring throughout what is probably the most difficult time in a couple's life.   I would especially like to thank Dr. Sullivan.  He was so very kind, compassionate and dedicated.  Dr. Sullivan went above and beyond what I have expected and experienced from physicians in the past.  He truly looks at each patient as an individual and treats them with care.  Dr. Sullivan took the time to personally call on my several occasions - which meant the world to me while going through this process.  Thank you again for all your care and kindness.


I would like to thank Dr. Sullivan and his amazing team of loving, caring and supportive staff. After just over two years at their office, we are thrilled to be expecting twins. From the very first day we sat down with Dr. Sullivan we felt like we were in good hands and that he really cared for us and we truly believed that if someone was going to help us to grow our family that it would be him...and he did! Thank you will never be enough, what you do for families cannot be put into words. Because of you we have everything that we have ever hoped for...and more!


After trying on our own and through my regular OB for 3 years we finally made the decision to see a specialist.  I was scared and unsure of what to expect.  The first time we met Dr. Griffin all of my fears quickly went away.  He is the most personable and compassionate Doctor I have ever met.  He made me feel like I was his only patient and always had time to answer all of my questions.  We unfortunately suffered two miscarriages back to back and he made me feel like I was not alone and he has helped me to remain hopeful about our future as parents.  He took time out of his weekends to answer my phone calls and questions through the whole process.  He was great at explaining everything and making me feel comfortable the entire time.  I know in my heart that we will be successful with Dr. Griffin helping us along the way.   I can not thank him enough for everything he has all ready done.


After trying to become pregnant on our own for almost 2 years, we faced the heartbreaking reality that it may not be possible.  I remember my intense feelings of fear, disillusionment and anger as we walked into the doors of the office.  As soon as we sat down with Dr. Griffin, many of these feelings were put to rest.  Instead, I was filled with inspiration and hope as we moved forward.  Dr. Griffin made the most of each precious month - we got started right away!  He was supportive, optimistic and kept us well informed of the entire process.  He was always available for questions and personally called to check in on us during the process!  As we began the IVF process, his optimism and honesty kept us moving forward through what was a highly emotional process.  All of the staff - especially Anne and Kathy (our IVF nurses) were phenomenal!  Everyone is so friendly and willing to take the time we needed to answer our questions or offer a box of tissues - of which I needed many!!!  After a few short months, we have come out on the other side and have graduated with a set of twins!  My husband and I could not be happier.  Dr. Griffin and his staff made the impossible possible! I feel so blessed that he came into our lives when he did - and grateful for his incredible insight, support, optimism, honesty and bedside manner.  As difficult as dealing with infertility can be, I would not want to be anywhere else!  Thank you again Dr. Griffin and everyone over at Buffalo Infertility.  Thanks to all of you, my husband and I can have the family we have always dreamed of!


I want to thank Buffalo IVF, and Dr. Griffin, for giving me hope and optimism as I navigate through this process.  After suffering two miscarraiges fairly close together last year, I felt dispondent, depressed, angry and scared.  Even though my husband and I still have a long road ahead, being referred to Buffalo IVF and treating with Dr. Griffin has improved our outlook on things so very much.  The staff at Buffalo IVF is very personable and friendly.  I never had trouble getting in for an appointment and when I called with a question, it was always answered in short order.  Dr. Griffin is so much more than just a wonderful, skilled physician.  His ability to listen to how I am feeling and answer my questions is extraordinary.  I can honestly say that when I have an appointment with him, I feel like I am the only patient he is seeing that day.  He takes his time to explain everything and is a thorough, kind, patient and incredibly talented doctor.  The last nine months have been a roller coaster of emotions for my husband and I.  After treating with Dr. Griffin, I truly believe now that what I thought was just not meant to be five months ago will now happen in the not too distant future.  I will be forever grateful to Dr. Griffin and everyone at Buffalo IVF not only for diagnosing my issue and treating me, but for helping my husband and I feel excited, hopeful and optimistic again about having our own children.  I would enthusiastically and without reservation recommend Dr. Griffin.  He is absolutely wonderful.


I wanted to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for Dr Griffin and his warmth, compassion, presence and competence as he has helped me navigate through my journey of becoming a mother.  They say that people come into our lives for a reason and when you can figure out that reason, you then will know what to do for that person. For me, Dr Griffin has given me back much more that I can ever give him.  Saying thank you is a small token of my gratitude.

I have been a patient of Dr Griffin's for over two years now.  Our paths crossed when I was experiencing the first of my two miscarriages.  He walked into my life when I was experiencing such a painful heartbreak.  It had shattered me and I never will forget it.  I will never forget that in the midst of it, though I couldn't understand what was going on, his presence in that room left me with a settled sense within that I was OK and that brought me comfort.

I think time is our most precious gift because we only have a set amount of it.  You can make more money and you can make more stuff, but you can't make more time.  When you give someone your time you are giving them a portion of your life that you can't get back.  Your time is your life.  That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time and I have received that gift from Dr Griffin.  Caring is about the willingness to simply pay attention to others and to be there during moments of pain.  Dr Griffin has taken the time to listen to me talk, sit with me and feel the hurt in my life and to give me hope when I felt defeated.  His caring disposition has touched me and I am forever grateful.  He has a wonderful gift and I am so blessed he has shared it with me.

When I look back on how painful of a journey it has been these last two and a half years, I can say that while it was the most challenging time of my life, the best thing that ever happened to me happened because of it.  It happened because I had Dr Griffin to walk with me on my journey.  I am a better person because of him and I will be a better mother as well.  His time and compassion has been my strength and comfort in times of grief.  And it has shown me that sometimes when we are weak, the most beautiful things can happen to us.  And because of him, a baby girl has found her way into my life and that little girl is my life a thousand times over.

Thank you Dr Griffin.  You have been a great source of strength and you possess the humbleness, patience and comfort that has given my family a brand new start.
