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.

I think he [Dr. Michael Blotner] is an absolute genius. That being said, he’s not for everyone. He is extremely blunt almost to the point of making you feel uncomfortable at times. Very dry sense of humor. But you’re not going to make a friend, you’re going to get pregnant and he will do his best to make that happen. The rest of the staff is there for the warm and fuzzies, so if you can get past the sometimes gruff demeanor you’ll be in good shape!
[Westchester Fertility and Reproductive Endo's] Strengths are definitely the small staff. Everything is done on site so all of your testing, procedures, etc are in one place. You’ll see the same faces each time which is very comforting. My only complaint is that since it IS such a small clinic they need to have everyone cycle together. So some cycles are very long and I believe that’s why one of my cycles was a waste but can never be sure.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Blotner at Westchester Fertility & Reproductive Endocrinology?
Be prepared for the cold hard truth. I appreciated this, but I know for some it’s hard to hear in such a clinical way. He is incredibly smart and thinks outside the box, but he does not sugar coat!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Blotner at Westchester Fertility & Reproductive Endocrinology?
This office is very small, there is a nurse, an US tech, a phlebotomist, a coordinator, a financial person and the doctor so you get to know them all very well. It is a very different feeling from most clinics because they know you by name and you really feel like they’re rooting for you the whole time. You have email access and they are always willing to answer any and all questions.
Describe the protocols Michael Blotner used in your cycles at Westchester Fertility & Reproductive Endocrinology and their degree of success.
I did 2 IVF cycles starting with birth control and 1 using Lupron. Cycle 2 we added Omnitrope to help with egg quality but I wound up ovulating before retrieval so I don’t know how it would have worked out. The last cycle that was successful was a Lupron start and he had me split my Follistim in morning/night doses instead of all at night. He also added low dose HCG and Menopur to the stims.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Westchester Fertility & Reproductive Endocrinology.
In a word-amazing! They felt like girlfriends that guy can talk to about anything. Always willing to talk and help with meds, questions, etc. Honestly cannot say enough good things!

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Westchester Fertility & Reproductive Endocrinology.
It was hit or miss! Some days you walked in and out within 20 minutes, some days it was over an hour.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Blotner at Westchester Fertility & Reproductive Endocrinology.
I had great insurance but when all was said and done it was still thousands of dollars
Describe Michael Blotner's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Westchester Fertility & Reproductive Endocrinology.
We chose to do multiple embryo transfers because of my AMA and the fact that we didn’t do genetic testing.
