Attention to Detail

Attention to detail is on a 1 - 10 scale, and is scored based on the rate, and severity, of errors committed by the clinic according to the patients.

For example, a severe error might be failing to inform a patient of critical information, while a small error might be failing to call a patient with results.

CDC Success Rates

This is the most recent data from the CDC. The CDC cautions that it should not be used to compare doctors and clinics. This data represents the outcomes of IVF cycles when using a person's own eggs.

For more information please see our FAQs.

Where you see a “?” on the chart, a clinic has done fewer than 20 cycles in this category and age range, so the CDC says showing percentages from this small data set would be misleading and unreliable.

Dr. Stewart was so incredibly warm and sensitive while I was visibly nervous and emotional during our first visit, while also being very honest about what could be potential challenges. He was, however, also very encouraging and made what is a very overwhelming process seem achievable. He was firmly in our corner from day 1...While I was thrilled to successfully become pregnant, I was truly sad that I had to move on from him as my regular doctor! He's just a lovely person.
Dr. Stewart's office [Weill Cornell Medical College] in Brooklyn is quiet, super modern and clean, and the office staff is so warm and personable. They are very organized and set a very friendly, professional but personal tone...I constantly tell my husband how much I feel spoiled by Dr. Stewart's team as they set the bar so high with their quality of care
How was your experience with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I saw Dr. Stewart for most of my monitoring appointments on weekdays at the Brooklyn office. I really appreciated the continuity of seeing him with regularity for these appointments, as we were able to establish a personal rapport. I was always met with warmth, compassion and humor. I never felt rushed during any appointments, even when I came with a list of questions - no question was too small or silly, and he always took the time to explain everything in a clear and complete manner. He (and his team) came to know that my husband and I wanted ALL details and data on everything, and was happy to go through all of our results in details as was possible. He really makes you feel like you're on all on a team working together to reach the same goal. While I was thrilled to successfully become pregnant, I was truly sad that I had to move on from him as my regular doctor! He's just a lovely person.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Don't be afraid to ask any and all questions and bring up any concerns or worries, no matter how big or small. While you will see him regularly in the Brooklyn office, any other monitoring appointments on weekends or holidays are in Manhattan and almost always with other docs, so I really tried to take advantage of the time I had with Dr. Stewart during those visits. He will always take the time to listen and answer any questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
When starting our path to IVF, Dr. Stewart was the first and only doctor I met with. I was incredibly nervous after experiencing two miscarriages and was quickly approaching 40 years old. Firstly, Dr. Stewart was so incredibly warm and sensitive while I was visibly nervous and emotional during our first visit, while also being very honest about what could be potential challenges. He was, however, also very encouraging and made what is a very overwhelming process seem achievable. He was firmly in our corner from day 1.
Describe the protocols Joshua Stewart used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
My first cycle we did the standard antagonist protocol, and although we added ganirelex 5 or so days in, I still almost ovulated and we had to do my retrieval a day or two earlier than we hoped. We still retrieved 12 eggs, but only 6 were mature and I ended up with only 1 blast which was abnormal. He then switched me to a microdose lupron protocol for my next 2 cycles, which were both hugely more successful - 2nd retrieval 19 eggs, 6 blasts and 2 normal, and 3rd retrieval 25 eggs, 7 blasts and 1 normal. He definitely found the protocol that worked best for me!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Molly )
I worked with both Molly and Annie as my primary nurse practitioners. I cannot sing their praises more. Molly is an angel straight from heaven - she was a cheerleader, a wealth of knowledge, and on a couple of occasions an empathetic ear during a very challenging/emotional/hormonal time. Annie as well - just so warm, knowledgeable and responsive. It was such a comfort to know they were only a phone call or email away, always responding promptly and answering any questions big or small. I constantly tell my husband how much I feel spoiled by Dr. Stewart's team as they set the bar so high with their quality of care - while I like my OB, his team just does not compare.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Dr. Stewart's office in Brooklyn is quiet, super modern and clean, and the office staff is so warm and personable. They are very organized and set a very friendly, professional but personal tone. The UES office is a more hectic and less personal, which is to be expected.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College.
All cost was out of pocket, which was ~$25k per retrieval cycle, and about $6k for the transfer.
Describe Joshua Stewart's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Dr. Stewart felt strongly about transferring 1 embryo only, as we were testing, and the risks of transferring multiples outweighed any benefit. I completely trusted and agreed with him.

Dr. Stewart was kind and humorous, making an intimidating egg freezing process more approachable...patient with my questions and educated me on my anatomy and fertility in layman's terms...quick to respond on the same day follow-up questions...kept me motivated and informed on my progress...explained how my scans were performing and what to possibly expected, and has a gentle bedside manner (ultrasounds aren’t comfortable with all the bloating!).
The Brooklyn location [at Weill Cornell Medical College] is way more personal and high touch compared to the Upper East Side...recently renovated so it’s super clean, modern/new equipment, and generally feels more calm...highly recommend this location for a small clinic experience, backed by the resources of large institution. The Upper East Side location is a trek, but it’s where weekend monitoring and retrievals happen...
How was your experience with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Stewart managed my care through two egg freezing cycles. I had researched a few providers from large healthcare networks in NYC. We met in-person and he was clear, direct, and patient in walking me through the statistics, procedure/process (including initial blood work and ultrasound) and timing considerations. He was quick to respond on the same day follow-up questions, and I knew he was the best-fit provider for me. Over the course of my egg freezing cycles, he kept me motivated and informed on my progress. Daily monitoring was simple/quick, explained how my scans were performing and what to possibly expected, and has a gentle bedside manner (ultrasounds aren’t comfortable with all the bloating!).
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Don’t be afraid to ask any and all questions, and be direct in sharing your family planning goals/timing so you can plan the best course of treatment together
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Stewart was kind and humorous, making an intimidating egg freezing process more approachable. He was patient with my questions and educated me on my anatomy and fertility in layman's terms.
Describe the protocols Joshua Stewart used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Round 1 egg freezing: was suggested to use an estrogen patch, but my ovulation had been inconsistent. Once period started, it was a 11 day process from injections to extraction. Used Menopur and Follistim for the first few days and added Ganirelix for the back half, rounded it out with Lupron trigger. Round 2 egg freezing: used ovulation tracking strips and was able to apply estrogen patch before start of treatment. Similar protocol and timeline as above. We discussed and agreed on goal to improve outcomes, so Dr. Stewart started me on higher doses of Menopur and Follistim at the start of first few days and possibly extending the trigger shot. Fertility is truly an art and a science. I was able to put my trust in Dr. Stewart’s expertise, and am grateful for the results!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Molly Spika)
Molly was my NP for both cycles. While we communicated only via email and phone, she is an absolute gem and fantastic professional. Molly is highly detailed oriented, timely with her daily phone calls, patient to repeat/explain protocols, alleviate concerns/anxiety I’d been feeling, quick follow-ups with my pharmacies when I had issues with pre-auths, and was truly empathic and cheered me on the whole way. Mikaela was the NP responsible for my daily monitoring. Despite early mornings, she always was so cheerful and quick with bloodwork. Weekend monitoring is at their Upper East Side campus, where I interacted with a variety of nurses. Everyone was extremely professional, but it is more of an in/out v. personal experience
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
The Brooklyn location is way more personal and high touch compared to the Upper East Side. The clinic was recently renovated so it’s super clean, modern/new equipment, and generally feels more calm. In time of COVID, there would only be 1-2 patients I’d run into and everyone remained wearing masks. I never waited more than 5 minutes for monitoring, and despite sometimes running 15 minutes late for appointments, the team always fit me in ASAP with no problems or attitudes. Highly recommend this location for a small clinic experience, backed by the resources of large institution. The Upper East Side location is a trek, but it’s where weekend monitoring and retrievals happen. Monitoring for my first cycle (July), I waited for 30 minutes until and I was seen; for my second cycle (October), I waited for 1+ hours. While the nurses were kind and friendly, I found the doctors completing my ultrasounds to be rather cold, rushed, and barely communicated with me on progress. The billing and pre-auth departments can be annoying to get in touch with given a complicated phone tree. Once however you speak with the experts, they are direct and informative in addressing questions
Describe the costs associated with your care under Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Weill provides a pricing chart with the initial consultation. My insurance helped covered costs for treatment (once I met deductible) and medication, so out of pocket I probably paid $5K?

He [Dr. Stewart] has a very caring manner, and he is very personable and thoughtful in explaining the process, the potential outcomes as well as the risks. He is very knowledgeable, and he was very careful to keep a balance between the needed medications and the desired outcome. This journey is a an emotional one and we really felt supported along the way...IUI with clomid & ovidrel. IVF cycles with Menopur, Gonal-F, Cetrotide for stimulation, HCG and Lupron for trigger...
[Weill Cornell Medical College] Very organized, there was hardly ever waiting time. Their Upper East office is open on both Sundays & Saturdays. Make sure you know from your nurses your appointment time because it is hard to get somebody on the phone during the weekend. The doctors and nurses that did the IUI & the egg retrieval/transfer were all great, very nice and with a calming attitude...

Dr Stewart is an amazing doctor, he has been so caring along this emotional journey. He always explained the process in a caring and thoughtful manner while also sharing the right details.
Describe the protocols Joshua Stewart used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
IUI with clomid & ovidrel. IVF cycles with Menopur, Gonal-F, Cetrotide for stimulation, HCG and Lupron for trigger (HCG intramuscular - the Dr does not recommend subcutanous). Genetic testing embryos due to our age there was a high risk of abnormalities. IVF transfer of 1 embryo (if the embryos are tested and normal it is not recommended to transfer 2 embryos as it is a high risk pregnancy) Progesterone until week 8
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Molly & Annie - Dr Stewart’s nursing team)
Both Molly & Annie were great - always responsive, very knowledgeable and caring as they were sharing sometimes not so good news. They are both very organized, I knew exactly when I will receive a callback with results.

The doctors and nurses that did the IUI & the egg retrieval/transfer were all great, very nice and with a calming attitude, as it was my first time going through anesthesia. A weakness is the billing process, which I assume is like this everywhere - the preauthorization process took time and was delayed.

[Dr. Stewart] made sure to explain my condition and my options to me in layman’s terms without being at all condescending...I will speak here to those with POI specifically. I knew that the odds of conceiving a child with my own eggs were slim. I decided to plug away at it for a year under [his] supervision, notwithstanding these odds...In Dec 2021, I received a positive pregnancy test, and as I’m writing this (June 2022), I am in my third trimester of pregnancy.
I was seen only at the Brooklyn location [of Weill Cornell Medical College]. The waiting room was clean, spacious, never crowded. I rarely had to wait more than 5 min before being seen. It is an efficiently run operation, which was very much appreciated given the frequency of blood and ultrasound monitoring I underwent...Molly was fabulous. She always called me the same day with results, and every question or concern I expressed was met with respect, patience, and sensitivity
How was your experience with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Stewart is just as he is described by all the glowing reviews here—kind, respectful, present, compassionate, professional, etc—but what struck me most was his level of expertise. I had full confidence that he was on top of all the relevant research on my condition and that he could put this knowledge into practice. With some infertility conditions (like my own, primary ovarian insufficiency), the best one can hope for is luck. But as they say, luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. If there is an opportunity, Dr. Stewart will spot it, and he is as prepared as anyone could be to make the most of it. You couldn’t be in more capable hands.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I will speak here to those with POI specifically. I knew that the odds of conceiving a child with my own eggs were slim. I decided to plug away at it for a year under Dr. Stewart’s supervision, notwithstanding these odds. My decision was not so much in the hope of success, but so that I could know I gave it a good try and perhaps find some peace in that down the road. I would advise anyone with POI to do the same. Go in with reasonable expectations. Conceiving a child with your own eggs is for most of us unlikely, but you can rest assured that you are not wasting your time with Dr. Stewart. He is as knowledgeable and skilled as they come, and he will optimize any chances you have.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Stewart takes his time with each patient. He made sure to explain my condition and my options to me in layman’s terms without being at all condescending or uninformative, and he kept me fully informed of where things stood throughout the process. This involved, e.g., real-time ultrasound results during each visit and same-day calls regarding my blood results.
Describe the protocols Joshua Stewart used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I was diagnosed with POI in May 2021. Beginning in July 2021, I underwent regular blood and ultrasound monitoring for guidance with timed intercourse. I was also prescribed estrogen patches to suppress my high FSH levels. The process eventually led to one cycle (in Nov 2021) that began with relatively low FSH levels. Dr. Stewart pounced on the opportunity and prescribed what turned out to be a successful round of Clomid. I was sent home with an Ovidrel trigger shot and instructions for timed intercourse. In Dec 2021, I received a positive pregnancy test, and as I’m writing this (June 2022), I am in my third trimester of pregnancy.

Dr. Stewart's treatment protocol closely monitored my estrogen levels so as to mitigate the risks of IVF that may have been tied to my cancer history. He also took the time to consult with my oncologist before devising his treatment plan...He was methodical and thorough in assessing my situation, and explained each result and prognosis in an accessible way. He presented me with a recommendation that factored in my concerns and was honest about the outcomes that I could realistically expect...
the nursing team [at Weill Cornell Medical College] was always kind, courteous and patient, and were responsive to patient questions and needs...While the main clinic location located at Weil Cornell on the Upper East Side can feel a bit impersonal and like a fertility factory given the high volume of patients being seen at any given time, the Brooklyn clinic location had the complete opposite feel...Each provider was attentive and professional.
How was your experience with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Before beginning treatment with Dr. Stewart, I had consultations with other providers. From my first contact with Dr. Stewart, I had complete confidence that he understood my family building goals and also my areas of concern specific to my medical situation. He was methodical and thorough in assessing my situation, and explained each result and prognosis in an accessible way. He presented me with a recommendation that factored in my concerns and was honest about the outcomes that I could realistically expect. With each step of the process, I knew that I could rely on the fact that Dr. Stewart was taking time to keep updated on my progress. Dr. Stewart was optimistic and encouraging, and also provided me the information that I needed to be able to make informed decisions about my treatment plan. Dr. Stewart is kind, personable and effectively instilled confidence. I have left each interaction with Dr. Stewart feeling well cared for and knowing that he has my best interests at the forefront of all recommendations that he makes. My only regret is that I'm not able to continue care with Dr. Stewart through my pregnancy!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
My advice for prospective patients is to be open and communicative with Dr. Stewart regarding your goals and concerns. He is non-judgemental and treats his patients with respect.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Stewart clearly cares so much about all of his patients. His bedside manner and communication skills are excellent, and he took the time to understand my priorities and goals and offered treatments that had taken these into consideration. He clearly explained the pros and cons and what I should expect along the way. Dr. Stewart has a kind and easy going disposition, and made me feel like he was truly following along with my treatment progress and making needed adjustments along the way. He arrived to each appointment updated on my chart and was able to quickly and effectively answer any questions I had. Even though his practice is busy, I never felt rushed and left my appointment confident that he had paid full attention to my case. His team (from front desk staff to nursing staff) were always kind, welcoming and helpful.
Describe the protocols Joshua Stewart used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I went to Dr. Stewart for help conceiving after years of ovarian suppression following a breast cancer diagnosis. Dr. Stewart's treatment protocol closely monitored my estrogen levels so as to mitigate the risks of IVF that may have been tied to my cancer history. He also took the time to consult with my oncologist before devising his treatment plan. I was able to retrieve more eggs than Dr. Stewart had initially predicted, and was also able to freeze more normal embryos than had been anticipated. Dr. Stewart was also supportive of my decision to have weekly acupuncture treatments throughout my retrieval and transfer cycles.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Molly Spilka, NP)
My primary point of contact was with Molly Spilka. With each phone call to updated me on my treatment protocol, Molly provided clear instructions and made sure to include explanations for any medication changes that were being recommended. Molly was generous with her time when I asked her to explain different medications, what was happening with my body and what I could expect in terms of next steps as the process moved forward. Any questions or concerns that I raised were responded to promptly either by return phone call or email, and Molly helped me to make sure that I had the correct medication supply and worked to trouble shoot any problems with this. There were a few times that I spoke to other nurses or to the PA Celia Chen. Each provider was informative and clear. They validated any concerns that I had and offered me helpful advice. Like Dr. Stewart, the nursing team was always kind, courteous and patient, and were responsive to patient questions and needs.

Apart from my procedures and a few monitoring appointments, all of my care was provided at the Brooklyn location. This clinic site is clean, quiet and inviting. The front desk staff is warm, friendly and efficient. Appointment times were honored and wait times were short. I had both egg retrieval and embryo transfer at the hospital, and the process was efficient and ran smoothly for each procedure. The nursing team post egg retrieval were excellent, and made sure to help me manage my symptoms before discharge. Each provider was attentive and professional.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College.
The egg retrieval costs were around 11K and the embryo transfer fees were around 5K. Some of my testing and lab work was covered by insurance, and Dr. Stewarts office also helped me to apply for a LiveStrong fertility grant.
Describe Joshua Stewart's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Dr. Stewart recommended that I transfer one embryo, and I felt well informed of his rationale for this.

I loved that Dr. Stewart saw me for every visit and made time to sit down and actually talk/answer any questions I had...was wonderful from the first visit. I was honestly not expecting someone so kind, patient and approachable. From the beginning, he took the time to explain every procedure, treatment, and next step with patience and kindness. I can tell that he genuinely cares about his patients and never worried that I would not get the care and/or answers I needed. I wish he could be my OB beyond fertility treatment!
The nurses (Sarah and Molly) [at Weill Cornell Medical College] always got back to me as soon as my test results were in and were great at communicating...The clinic itself is clean, spacious and beautiful. All of the staff members are kind and compassionate. Sherrell, at the front desk, was always so nice, easy to talk to and prompt in getting me and my husband scheduled for any procedures or appointments...Protocols I started with ovulation monitoring due to secondary infertility (12 months TTC, with a 2 year old that was not difficult to conceive). This monitoring involved bloodwork and ultrasound around the time of ovulation to predict timing and schedule timed intercourse. Dr. Stewart saw a small calcification on my uterus that may have been a remnant from my first pregnancy. I went for a hysteroscopy (D&C) to have this area removed as it was possible it was preventing successful implantation. Dr. Stewart told me many times that this was not 100%, that this may not have been causing any issues with implantation but that it couldn't be ruled out as an issue. He made sure that I was in full agreement on proceeding with this as a next step. I actually pushed for this to be done. After this, I did one cycle of Letrozole with a trigger injection. This was to ensure ovulation was actually occurring and also time intercourse even more accurately.

[Dr. Stewart is] Great at managing expectations and providing context while maintaining compassionate, trustworthy bedside manner...He was always upbeat, friendly and genuine...We did 2 rounds of timed intercourse with trigger shot (both failed) and then went to IVF with PGT-A and FET (which worked in one transfer round)...I appreciated this approach [eset] as I am afraid of twins and was otherwise healthy.
It’s a large clinic [Weill Cornell Medical College] but spending most of my time in the BK office really helped me not just feel like a number.

ADORE Dr Stewart. The best doctor I have had in my entire life. Great at managing expectations and providing context while maintaining compassionate, trustworthy bedside manner.

Because we did multiple cycles, Dr. Stewart adjusted and adapted our IVF plan based on previous results and how my body responded to the medications -- and each time we ended up with more eggs retrieved than the previous cycle. He also pushed to help me do a naturally timed transfer-- saving me from unnecessary medications and injections, which I was very grateful for...was very attentive, patient and ready to answer any and all questions from our very first consultation through my last appointment with him a month after my frozen embryo transfer. He was honest about our obstacles, but hopeful and optimistic throughout a long year with some ups and downs. We are so appreciative of Dr. Stewart and always felt like we were in the best hands in terms our IVF journey.
nurses [at Weill Cornell Medical College] were very helpful and informative. They were available by phone or email to answer questions about medications, side effects and appointments...I was very happy with Weill Cornell -- they have a team of excellent doctors and nurses. Each doctor I had for my retrievals and transfer made me feel comfortable and at ease. My only slight critique would be how busy the UES office got on the weekends --as it was the only location open for monitoring on Saturdays and Sundays.

I have newly diagnosed PCOS, so treatment initially [with Dr. Joshua Stewart] was just natural cycle monitoring with bloodwork and ultrasound...Dr. Stewart always spends time with you during appointments, is patient, reassuring, optimistic, and genuinely just SO KIND. He takes his time to explain things, makes sure all your questions are answered, and I never felt rushed. In addition to him, all the other staff in the office are wonderful. From the front desk, the nurses, phlebotomists, etc.
Molly [nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College] was incredible. She was very detailed, helpful, warm, encouraging, and served as a great therapist in addition to being a great nurse! Helped me coordinate prescription issues, and always relayed information effectively. She also was so supportive when I would end up crying to her on the phone! Really found her to be wonderful...The Brooklyn office is not the "main" office, so the one downside is that for any procedures, you have to go to the main office in Manhattan. But that being said, the Brooklyn office is brand new, gorgeous, high tech, and the staff there are wonderful! It's primarily for monitoring appointments, bloodwork, and consultations.

Dr. Stewart is a wonderful physician who uses his expertise to build a fertility plan for his patients designed specifically for them. He thoroughly discussed my diagnosis with me and was extremely empathetic and compassionate while delivering my care. During our last IUI cycle, he was able to work around the death of my uncle. He cares about you as a person and your quality of life...I was diagnosed with PCOS and did 4 IUIs. Once I was diagnosed with PCOS, I started Metformin. During the preparation for the first IUI, I happened to be ovulating on my own so no additional medications were taken for this IUI. My husband was also diagnosed with a varicocele and Dr. Stewart referred him to an excellent surgeon. For the last 3 IUIs, I took letrozole for ovulation and Ovidrel as the trigger injection. We were successful on our 4th IUI and are currently expecting twins.
The care from Dr. Stewart and his team [at Weill Cornell Medical College] is extremely personal. His care is exceptional from the moment you begin working with him...Sarah [nurrse] was fabulous. She was always available for any questions, and would promptly follow up same day post labs. She was compassionate and connected with me on a personal level. She works wonderfully with Dr. Stewart as they both connect with you to deliver your care plan.

From our first consultation, Dr. Stewart wanted to get to know us as a couple and individually. He expressed the fertility journey can be tough and he would be here for us all along the way - after every blood test or result, he would call us....not just his nurses. He took extra steps to ensure we knew he was one call away for any questions or concerns. He’s the most attentive and engaged doctor I’ve ever had...We did have a chemical pregnancy / miscarriage and he was there for us emotionally as a doctor and helped us navigate what to do next. I cannot say better things about him as a doctor (and fertility support coach)!
Both nurses [at Weill Cornell Medical College] were warm and welcoming every time I saw them or heard from them...Brooklyn office is great particularly with COVID, you aren’t at a hospital with multiple floors and patient rooms - it’s just 1 floor and you can go in and out. All IUIs are done uptown but day to day appointments are in Brooklyn...We went with IUI from the beginning so it was only one strategy. After 3 attempts he still felt confident we would conceive given my results previously had continued to show growth in a positive way - 4th time, we conceived!
How was your experience with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Stewart is attentive and truly deeply cares about his patients. Throughout our fertility journey together it felt as if I was his only patient - that’s how much he connected with us and made the time (however long) to see or speak to us. Coming into fertility as a complete unknown to us, he explained absolutely everything in detail and made sure we felt clear and confident about each of the steps. He is welcoming and attentive when you first meet him and that did not change from the time I moved on once I got pregnant. We did have a chemical pregnancy / miscarriage and he was there for us emotionally as a doctor and helped us navigate what to do next. I cannot say better things about him as a doctor (and fertility support coach)!

I had one mature follicle 2 cycles of IUI with clomid...Both cycles [with Dr. Stewart] I had 2 mature follicles...I was going to try to fit in an IVF cycle prior but we were waiting on some male fertility test results when I was due to start and Dr. Stewart encouraged me to wait until we had all of the information.

How was your experience with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Stewart listened to me and understood that I was eager but that I wanted to explore options before IVF. He ensured that we did not rush into treatments without all the data and information to make informed decisions. He went above and beyond, calling to give me results when he could, meeting us in the office for a consult after hours, staying at the hospital so he could do an insemination for me. He really believes in a very high standard of care, but has a strong understanding of the science behind every decision.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Be open and honest about what is most important for you in the process, he will listen to what you want to do and help guide you based on his experience and expertise.

Describe the protocols Joshua Stewart used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
1 cycle unmedicated IUI with monitoring. I had one mature follicle 2 cycles of IUI with clomid (don't remember the dosage) with monitoring and trigger shot. Both cycles I had 2 mature follicles I was going to try to fit in an IVF cycle prior but we were waiting on some male fertility test results when I was due to start and Dr. Stewart encouraged me to wait until we had all of the information.

Dr. Stewart always took the time to answer all of our questions and would give us a game plan that we could understand and would put our minds at ease that there were other options available to us despite our having had two failed transfers prior to switching to him...When things were not going well or it was bad news, Dr. Stewart would always personally call and thoroughly explain things, as well as provide us with additional options so we would not lose hope. Dr. Stewart and his staff make you feel like they are on your journey with you. Could not recommend more.

How was your experience with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Stewart was phenomenal. My husband and I switched to Dr. Stewart after having a terrible experience at another clinic where the doctor was unresponsive and uninvolved in our treatment. Dr. Stewart always took the time to answer all of our questions and would give us a game plan that we could understand and would put our minds at ease that there were other options available to us despite our having had two failed transfers prior to switching to him.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Stewart is one of the most caring physicians I have ever come across. Infertility can be a very lonely and daunting process and throughout our time together he often was the one keeping hope alive for my husband and I. He always reached out to follow up and was always the one who called if there was bad news.
Describe the protocols Joshua Stewart used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I had two failed frozen embryo transfers prior to seeing Dr. Stewart, both were medicated cycles. On my first cycle with Dr. Stewart, we tried an unmedicated cycle which was not successful. Dr. Stewart then suggested an ERA which showed that my implantation window was slightly off from the norm. The next cycle we did another frozen, unmedicated cycle, which unfortunately resulted in an ectopic pregnancy. Dr. Stewart then suggested we try another round of IVF with a fresh transfer, which was successful.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Dr. Stewart and his staff's caring and attentive nature is the clinic's greatest strength. Beyond that, Dr. Stewart is also an extremely knowledgeable physician who is on top of the most recent studies in his field, so you know that you can trust him and his plan for your treatment.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
she [Dr. Kang] thought our previous clinic overstimulated us and she was confident we could have more success with less aggressive medication regimens to stimulate eggs. The first cycle we had 4 embryos, but only 1 was viable on testing. The second cycle was cancelled. However, when we met with her for the next cycle to discuss the treatment plan, she was much colder. We stated that due to insurance, this is our last cycle and we want to optimize it. She looked at us and said, "well we go into all of our treatment cycles thinking that."
Most times the wait [at Weill Cornell] is over an hour, though recently it has been under 15 minutes. Basically very variable...Unnecessary hoops for "veteran IVFer's" to jump through, like their IVF class, retrieval class in the city, etc. Its like they have unrealistic expectations on the amount of time their demands waste on the patients lives. For instance, a trigger shot may be administered at 12 midnight, then they expect the patient to come into the city for a 6am class - regardless of where you live so you may be coming from hours away, need to drive (awful parking) or take a train (horrible schedule at that time). Meaning you get 1 hour of sleep and they just tell you to deal with it.
How was your experience with Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Kang is sometimes warm and smiley, sometimes no nonsense, sometimes appears not invested. She is by the book (doesn't believe the research supports supplements, acupuncture, etc). I completed 1 egg retrieval, had 1 cancelled cycle, and about to begin another egg retrieval.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Come prepared with questions and research.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College?
We have done a couple of rounds of IVF retrievals with Dr. Kang. Prior to working with her, we were at RMA for 4 timed intercourse cycles, 3 IUIs, and 3 rounds of IVF. Dr. Kang started by treating us like a human at the beginning of the treatment. During the first cycle she stated that she thought our previous clinic overstimulated us and she was confident we could have more success with less aggressive medication regimens to stimulate eggs. The first cycle we had 4 embryos, but only 1 was viable on testing. The second cycle was cancelled. However, when we met with her for the next cycle to discuss the treatment plan, she was much colder. We stated that due to insurance, this is our last cycle and we want to optimize it. She looked at us and said, "well we go into all of our treatment cycles thinking that." When we asked for advice she wouldn't give us any suggestions and instead said, "Well what do you want to do?" I tried giving ideas based off of treatments I heard of through other support groups, online research, friends such as using Clomid on the male, procedures on myself, etc. She shook her head at all of them and said, "what else are you thinking?" So finally I responded, "Well, you are the professional and this is your area of expertise, I'm only telling you the little research I've done, why don't you give us some ideas based on your knowledge?" She was reluctant to come up with more suggestions but finally agreed to do a check up and after some time came up with a plan. I felt discouraged like I had to do the work on my own. Also felt as though she was not invested in our treatment after hearing we were running out of funds in our insurance plan.
Describe the protocols Hey-Joo Kang used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
1. Egg retrieval using an estrogen priming protocol (20 retrieved, 11 mature, 8 fertilized, 4 blastocysts, PGS testing 1 normal). 2. Same protocol for round 2, cycle cancelled due to poor response. 3. Will begin shortly, estrogen priming with microdose lupron flare to see if it controls eggs better.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Overall, its hit or miss. Seems like they are usually in a rush to call or se the next patient and its hard to stop them to ask questions.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Weaknesses: The billing team and clinic are very separate and they don't communicate with one another. Unnecessary hoops for "veteran IVFer's" to jump through, like their IVF class, retrieval class in the city, etc. Its like they have unrealistic expectations on the amount of time their demands waste on the patients lives. For instance, a trigger shot may be administered at 12 midnight, then they expect the patient to come into the city for a 6am class - regardless of where you live so you may be coming from hours away, need to drive (awful parking) or take a train (horrible schedule at that time). Meaning you get 1 hour of sleep and they just tell you to deal with it.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Most times the wait is over an hour, though recently it has been under 15 minutes. Basically very variable.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Insurance covered but responsible for many copays, some medications.
What specific things went wrong at Weill Cornell Medical College?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Failed to inform you of changes in protocol
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Weill Cornell Medical College.
During the first retrieval, they changed the trigger and didn't explain why. It was after hours so I couldn't get in touch with my doctor and they were annoyed I was requesting more information about this. Also, the billing team expects patients to do all the pre-authorizations for them (my previous clinic did all this work for you). Then when medications change, they don't explain if they don't have pre-auth for it. You're expected to keep track of all of that. If you don't have strong knowledge in billing, etc. then good luck figuring it out. Also, through my insurance this clinic is considered a "center of excellence", which means no copays etc. However, they will send their tests etc to the hospital, which is out of network. So you have to constantly fight about billing. At the previous clinic I was at, no matter what was done and sent to external labs etc, you weren't responsible for even a penny. It shows the difference in the billing teams and their investment in helping their patients. then, to top it all of, you'll get mailings every few weeks asking for donations to their hospital for their "top notch care" they gave you....

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
I felt very comfortable with her [Dr. Hey-Joo Kang]. She really is a no nonsense doctor and does not give false hope, yet, gives you all options available...She will give you options from the start and proceed with treatment quickly...Due to my diagnosis of POF, Dr. Kang started me off immediately with trying to level my hormones. She put me on a low-dose 0.05 mg of estradiol to help with hot flashes. I was given thyroid medication 0.05 mg to help my thyroid. I was given progesterone during my first IUI.
Cost for the first IUI was $800 [at Weill Cornell Medical College]...They operate very efficiently. Very organized. The receptionist is a very knowledgeable and helpful. She’s on top of her game when it comes to rescheduling or scheduling an appointment. She knows the medications and works with insurances to give you the best options. It was very pleased with how organized and helpful this establishment was...Nursing staff were all very nice. Very quick and to the point.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I felt like a human because she was willing to listen to me. She was very straightforward, but very kind. Right before my first IUI, she turned to me and actually said “let’s hope for a miracle.” I felt like that was more than a doctor had to say to a patient. She was kindly letting me know not to get my hopes up too high but was a small chance. This is more than any other doctor has said to me.

I went with Dr Kang knowing she had helped a few people I know conceive babies. Every visit she made me feel so comfortable, after every negative test she assured me it would happen. And it did. We believed in the process because of her. After I got pregnant via IVF I was having terrible pain at 6 weeks pregnant all day and finally I decide to drive myself into the city to see her - mind you it was already 5 pm and she was supposed to be done for the day. She waited until I got there to make sure everything was okay. It was 630 by the time I had gotten into the city. She checked me out and everything was fine, she wanted to be the one to check me out to make sure I was okay. That’s the kind of dr she is.

Dr Kang made you feel like you were the only one she was treating that day regardless of how many women were in her waiting room. So many women go through infertility and she made you feel like it was possible for you to get pregnant and to trust the process.
Describe the protocols Hey-Joo Kang used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Dr Kang had wanted us to try to conceive naturally for 1/2 rounds we had a negative result. We then did a few 2/3 rounds of Clomid with trying to conceive naturally. We then did medicated IUIs 2 of them. After all failed we went to IVF, we did one round and got pregnant the first time.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I had a slight issue with the monitoring hours, but I was able to come at the tail end of them. Also being on Long Island and having to go into the city sometimes for them was a little bit of a hassle but I would do it all over again for the same result.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Most of our fertility treatment was covered under our insurance - until we go to IVF and had maxed out our insurance. Then it was all out of pocket.
Describe Hey-Joo Kang's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
We had only 2 eggs that were viable for transfer and she advised us to do one fresh transfer at day 5 but my husband And I decided to do 2 eggs on day 3 and she told us all the risks with transferring two eggs.

Dr Kang is easily the best doctor I’ve ever been to. She is unbelievably smart, friendly, and professional. She was able to diagnose my issue right away and get me the proper course of action. When I had a failed pregnancy, she diagnosed it early on, was very straightforward about a course of action and gave me no false hope. She helped me move on from that and get me pregnant again Soon after with a healthy pregnancy...Having irregular cycles, I started with a few rounds of clomid with timed inter course. I had 1 success but it was ultimately an early MC due to an implantation issue. She caught it right away. We moved on to IUI with clomid for first round second round (successful) gonal F shots with IUI.
The nursing staff [at Weill Cornell Medical College] was amazing. Test results were given promptly on the same day and they responded to all questions within 30 min of leaving a message...With offices in NYC and garden city it was very convenient...Every office was clean and every staff member was extremely helpful. Every office was able to take on many patients at once, all while giving indivualized care...office staff is unbelievably organized.

Just be patient!!!! Not everything will happen in your first round but she knows what she is doing!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Kang is absolutely amazing. She gave results and was straightforward about possible treatment plans and outcomes. She took time to answer questions and explain everything.
Describe the protocols Hey-Joo Kang used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Having irregular cycles, I started with a few rounds of clomid with timed inter course. I had 1 success but it was ultimately an early MC due to an implantation issue. She caught it right away. We moved on to IUI with clomid for first round second round (successful) gonal F shots with IUI.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Sarah & Amy)
The nursing staff was amazing. Test results were given promptly on the same day and they responded to all questions within 30 min of leaving a message. Dr Kang’s assistant Diana is the most organized and professional person I have ever dealt with. She ensured every prescription was on time. She dealt with insurance no problem, scheduled appointments, and returned frantic phone calls within minutes, even when the office was closed.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Cornell is an amazing practice. With offices in NYC and garden city it was very convenient. Everyone I spoke to or dealt with was amazing. I can not recommend Cornell enough. Every office was clean and every staff member was extremely helpful. Every office was able to take on many patients at once, all while giving indivualized care.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I have great insurance so I only had to pay lab fees and co pays when pregnant.

Dr. Kang listened and answered my many questions during each visit. She always asked me if I was okay with changing or adding a new step to the procedure. When I voiced my concerns she made changes to suit my needs. She genuinely cares about each patient and wishes them success...Communicate any issues or pains you have, especially if she has no way of knowing what you're going through.
The clinic is well organized and clean. Everyone gets seen promptly and there were no mess ups while I was there. The only weakness is the receptionist, as mentioned before. Her attitude does not create a friendly environment where questions are welcomed. I felt like I was interrupting her whenever my husband or I asked a question...The only nurse that I had direct contact with was the nurse who drew blood everyday. She was quick to find my vein and draw blood. Very kind, calm, but quiet.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Communicate any issues or pains you have, especially if she has no way of knowing what you're going through. I had a unique case and was allergic to the sperm wash being used. The other doctor who administered the first 3 IUI's told me my pain was just the cramping thats expected from the catheter insertion. During the 3rd IUI the pain intensified and felt like boiling water was being poured inside me. I explained the burning sensation to Dr. Kang and switched washes and made sure she did my next IUI, which was a success.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Kang listened to my concerns and always addressed them. She is very sweet and genuinely cares about your well being. She answered all my questions at every visit and kept me well informed about what would be happening whenever I spoke with her. However, the receptionist always had an attitude. When I asked a question she would respond in a valley girl voice as if I was supposed to know the answer already. When I asked for an appointment with Dr. Kang on a certain day, she would respond "Like, ugh Dr. Kang isn't in on that day," while she sipped on her coffee. She also treated my husband with the same attitude when he presented a question. We almost switched doctors because we didn't want to deal with her every time we had an appointment. I'm glad I didn't switch because Dr. Kang is really great!

She [Dr. Hey-Joo Kang] is very knowledgeable about her field. She is pleasant and takes her time to speak with you especially when you might feel emotional and stress about the process. Even when you do not get to speak with her directly, her staff always call back...She is very smart and pleasant. She takes her time to speak with me and validates my concerns. She is human and always present
I like the fact that all of them [nurses at Weill Cornell] are on the same page. I did not have a preference because I was confidence in all three of them. They always return my calls and explain the next step...It's clean and welcoming....The wait is not bad especially in the morning...Jessica is very pleasant too. she takes my blood for each visit...She [Dr. Hey-Joo Kang] is very knowledgeable about her field.

She is very knowledgeable about her field. She is pleasant and takes her time to speak with you especially when you might feel emotional and stress about the process. Even when you do not get to speak with her directly, her staff always call back. I have gone to another provider for fertility treatment and my experience with her makes me want to complete this treatment. I a m having a very good experience.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Stay on top of your treatment. No such thing as stupid questions. The good thing is Dr. Kang and her team are quick to answer all questions.

Describe the protocols Hey-Joo Kang used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Coming from a bad experience, I just feel refresh with her and I understand my options better than the last experience. One thing I will never forget that she said to me was "have confidence in your body". By the time I saw her, I had given up on my body's ability to produce anything. Now my view of my body is so positive.

Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
It's clean and welcoming. I am still not clear about the computer in the lobby, because I have never been introduce or told what to do. The wait is not bad especially in the morning. I think Dr. Kang is a super woman because every time I go for my visits, she is there...I always see her by herself and I don't know she does it. The amazing this even though, she is by herself, you do not waste time. By the way, Jessica is very pleasant too. she takes my blood for each visit
Describe the costs associated with your care under Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College.
My insurance does not cover my treatment, so I will be responsible to the bill. Blood work and regular visits are covered. I will be responsible to pay between $11000-$15000

She [Dr. Kang] was compassionate and understanding. She gave us hope again after not having success at the other clinic. When something didn’t work, she adjusted the protocol. She had a great bedside manner and she was honest. I was able to get in touch with her if i had any questions, which was huge for me.
For the most part, all of my [Weill Cornell Medical College] appointments were on Long Island. Procedures and weekend testing was in the city...She [nurse] was understanding when i had panic and a lot of questions...They had monitoring hours, i learned that going a little bit later on the island, you wouldn’t have to wait to long. Going into the city, i would get there right before they opened, because that was bigger operation and there were more people...

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College?
With any doctor or procedure, do your research first and advocate for the things that you want. I went into IVF thinking that it would be the answer and just automatically work. In retrospect, i would have asked for more testing for myself.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College?
When you came in for your appointment, the receptionist Diana knew your name and always said hello. The nurse who took your blood and was also in the room with me and Dr. Kang was always nice and smiling. Dr. Kang was honest and straight forward, but truly cared about how I was feeling and really wanted to get us to the end with a baby of our own.
Describe the protocols Hey-Joo Kang used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I don’t really remember all of the drug names, but we did 2 IUIs with injectables which was a step up from the other clinic. There was a lot more bloodwork monitoring to make sure that we hit ovulation just right. The first IVF was a pretty standard protocol. My body had responded to the injections from the IUI beautifully, so it seemed like that was what was going to work. I produced and they retrieved a good amount of eggs, but the quality turned out to be the issue. She adjusted my meds for the second protocol, which was the same deal. I produced and they retrieved a good amount of eggs, but the quality was still not great. Though the quality wasn’t great, that was the only cycle that I had a 5 day blast that we have frozen. Before the third cycle, i had a laparoscopy and they found mild endometriosis. For the 3rd IVF cycle, she lengthened the amount of time that I was on meds to let my follicles grow. I did get a positive pregnancy with low numbers, but they started to double and then they dropped. It was a chemical. She said that as we progressed through IVF, my egg quality improved with each treatment. Unfortunately, we had run out of money and Dr. Kang stood by the fact that we could get pregnant naturally, it would just take a lot longer than normal. I haven’t had a positive pregnancy test since.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Amy)
She was very informative and very patient with going over how to use the needles and medication. If I called and left her a message, she always got back to me the same day. She was understanding when i had panic and a lot of questions. I truly loved the support from Dr. Kang’s team.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
I thought the clinic was great. For the most part, all of my appointments were on Long Island. Procedures and weekend testing was in the city. The only reason I was able to swing that, was because i wasn’t working. It was a lot of work traveling into the city for just bloodwork, but we do what we have to do for what we want in the end.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
They had monitoring hours, i learned that going a little bit later on the island, you wouldn’t have to wait to long. Going into the city, i would get there right before they opened, because that was bigger operation and there were more people. I really can’t complain about monitoring. It was very efficient.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Hey-Joo Kang at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Everything all in, it was around $70,000. We didn’t have coverage for any of the procedures. The ultrasounds and bloodwork were covered. We had help from my parents.
Describe Hey-Joo Kang's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I didn’t have any issues with that. Due to the quality of my eggs, more than one embryo was transferred.

Dr. Kang is caring and compassionate and always treats us with respect....Dr. Kang is forward with information if asked and will always include me in the decisions. For example, when making a decision about how many embryos to transfer. Dr. Kang is caring and I feel like I'm more than just a number...I'm being referred to a hematologist before another transfer as Dr. Kang feels there may be an issue with adequate blood flow to the developing fetus.
So far one DER [atWeill Cornell] and two transfer puts us around $35,000....However, billing through insurance takes a very long time so I am unclear right now of the exact totals...The only complaints I have is the door slams and startles me and it is super quiet.i would prefer some light music in the waiting room. Otherwise, it is a pleasant and cleanly office. I am usually in and out for monitoring within 30 minutes and the early morning hours allow me to go prior to my work schedule.

Describe the protocols Hey-Joo Kang used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
My first transfer I took all the meds as prescribed (progesterone injections and vivelle patches) and had a negative beta. The second transfer, I was advised to take a baby aspirin and I received a positive beta. Now, I'm being referred to a hematologist before another transfer as Dr. Kang feels there may be an issue with adequate blood flow to the developing fetus. I feel as though each step gets me closer to a successful pregnancy.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dan Goldschlag at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Ask all the questions you want; Dr. Goldshlag and his staff are happy to help you with any and all concerns that you might have. Have a good PCP who is willing to help you on your IVF journey. Despite direct contact from my nurse team, I had some physicians that made it rather difficult to get medication on Dr. Goldshlag's recommendation. Also, make sure you understand the billing, and that you get a list of CPT codes and procedures in the event that your insurance needs all this information. It is sometimes difficult to argue with insurance without the jargon in hand.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Dan Goldschlag at Weill Cornell Medical College?
After my first failed cycle I was upset. Upon the start of my current cycle, I got information as to why things did not work the first time (ectopic pregnancy), the percentages involved in the number of women that experience this, etc. As for my every day care, I had daily calls from the nurses following tests with individualized instructions. When I could not get in contact with the staff,I would leave a message, and my call was always returned.
Describe the protocols Dan Goldschlag used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Suggestions to begin a synthroid regimen helped regulate my TSH levels (important for the embryo). Estrogen patches helped regulate hormones during the menses before the cycle and after the transfer. Daily injections of Ganirelix and Menopur helped the eggs grow and multiply faster. HCG ccntrolled the release. All throughout this process regular sonograms and blood tests ensured that I my hormones and "levels" were at at a level optimal for success.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Susan and Allison)
Nurses were cordial, personable, thorough, and called me back promptly if there I had any questions. There is always a nurse accessible either through the phone or at the office to address any concerns. They called after every visit to report on progress and instructions. However, I would have like more of an explanation of what to expect in terms of potential side effects from treatments and procedures.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Monitoring appointments were rather efficient. I have never been in the office for more than 45 minutes, including appointment time, despite the occasional heavy crowd. No matter how high the volume of people is, the staff is always polite; as soon as they call your name, you are greeted with "How are you?" or "Nice to see you again."
