[Dr. Reichman's] treatment of my case from day one was defined by his compassion, intelligence, expertise, knowledge and sense of humor, where appropriate...He does NOT condescend your intelligence either, like some doctors may be prone to doing. He will describe — in a helpful and thoughtful way — anything and everything you care to know more about when it comes to your medical journey. Second, his honesty. He is very honest, but in no way to a fault — only so that you can set your expectations correctly.
The nurses [at Weill Cornell Medical College] are top-notch and will call you every day during IVF with instructions...I know in the beginning and end I worked closely with Nurse Christine — I will forever be in her debt for her kindness and expertise...Monitoring is run with great efficiency, appointments are made with highly capable staff and secretaries by your side. Everything is impeccably clean and state of the art.
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I remember being so nervous for my consultation. Remember, that’s normal! It can be a very nerve wrecking and stressful process without the right pilot to navigate the way for you and your partner. Dr. Reichman is that pilot! First, his knowledge — he is tremendously knowledgeable in his field. One thing I love about Dr. Reichman is he doesn’t pretend to know things that go beyond his scope as a Reproductive Endocrinologist; he always speaks to his field first and foremost. He does NOT condescend your intelligence either, like some doctors may be prone to doing. He will describe — in a helpful and thoughtful way — anything and everything you care to know more about when it comes to your medical journey. Second, his honesty. He is very honest, but in no way to a fault — only so that you can set your expectations correctly. And if you’re a sensitive person, he will certainly cushion that honesty with a great deal of kindness and sensitivity as well. Third, his lack of BS (which kind of goes with the honesty thing). But is a separate point worth bringing up. He does not show-off, or act in an arrogant way, also as some doctors can. He is reserved and composed in his demeanor such that you innately trust him with your health and the well-being of your future.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Write down any questions you may have in case you forget them. Dr. Reichman will ALWAYS give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have, so it’s good to be prepared for a fruitful conversation.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I cannot begin to describe the positive impact Dr. Reichman and his remarkable team have had on my life. His treatment of my case from day one was defined by his compassion, intelligence, expertise, knowledge and sense of humor, where appropriate. It is a pleasure and true honor to benefit from his gifts in the medical field, and to now have my son Zachary. Thank you, Dr. Reichman. It makes me feel that much better about the world knowing countless women will be helped by you.
Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Sorry ladies, I don’t remember many specifics. Just know you’re in the most capable hands with Dr. Reichman and his expert team of nurses and staff.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Weill Cornell Medical College.
The nurses are top-notch and will call you every day during IVF with instructions. Because my husband is a doctor, I never had questions about their instructions, but I’m sure that if you have them they are super receptive to that. I know in the beginning and end I worked closely with Nurse Christine — I will forever be in her debt for her kindness and expertise.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
It is among the best in the world — case closed! Monitoring is run with great efficiency, appointments are made with highly capable staff and secretaries by your side. Everything is impeccably clean and state of the art. After all, Weill Cornell is affiliated with the #4 Hospital in the nation.

He [Dr. Reichman] was attentive, thorough, and always available to answer questions via email. He wasn't too aggressive with hormone treatment but rather he tends to approach all his decisions and advice from a conservative perspective. I appreciate that. He is straight-forward and honest with his professional medical advice...He took our requests and questions seriously, and never acted like it was a burden to respond to us.
Strengths [of Weill Cornell] - Male factor infertility, coordination with urologist, detail oriented, fast paced, many office locations to choose form, able to work around a patient's schedule as they have many doctor's and nurses on staff, early hours, flexibility in virtual appt scheduling, clean, COVID guidelines are great. Weakness - If you want a clinic where you see the same doctor and nurse every time this isn't it. They work around the patient's schedule
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Growing our family in the way we envisioned literally wouldn't have been possible for us without the research, technology and expertise available at Cornell. I still remember the phone call we received 1.5 years ago when we were first told in Oregon that my husband would be unable to have biological kids. My husband has severe male factor infertility caused by a reciprocal balanced translocation. Our first IVF clinic (ORM) told us to look into donor sperm as they were unable to find viable sperm...even though my husband's urologist did not get the same results and said there was viable sperm. There was a serious lack of coordination between the IVF ORM clinic we went to initially and my husband's urologist. This was not the case at Cornell. Dr. Reichman took our concerns seriously from day 1 regarding coordination with the urologist and directly asked Dr. Schlegel (Cornell urologist) questions for us. He was attentive, thorough, and always available to answer questions via email. He wasn't too aggressive with hormone treatment but rather he tends to approach all his decisions and advice from a conservative perspective. I appreciate that. He is straight-forward and honest with his professional medical advice. And now I'm 12 weeks pregnant! It literally feels like a miracle...oh wait its science and the expertise of skilled professional. It was worth it to travel out of state during a pandemic to do IVF at this clinic.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Don't be afraid to ask questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Reichman listened to our history and was attentive. He would ask us questions about things going on in our life and always made time for a virtual call if we needed it. He answered our questions DIRECTLY via email. That's pretty rare. He took our requests and questions seriously, and never acted like it was a burden to respond to us.
Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
We were only dealing with severe male factor infertility. I am 31 and have an average AMH (2.1) and follicle count (14). My husband and I were religious about following the advice in the book " It starts with the egg". My first and only IVF cycle: Primed with estrogen patches for a week before my period was due. For hormones used 250 IU Gonal-F and 150 IU Menopur. I did the injections for 12 days. Used Letrozole for the last few days. Triggered with 5000 HCG Novarel. We ended up retrieving 18 eggs, 15 mature. Cornell did ICSI on the 15 eggs on the day of retrieval. They used sperm from a fresh sample and never even had to use the frozen back-up samples. This resulted in 12 eggs being fertilized. 10 out of 12 embryos made it to day 5/6 for PGT-SR and PGT-A testing. Out of the 10 embryos tested, 5 came back genetically normal/balanced. The other 5 embryos all had the unbalanced version of my partner's translocation (in addition to the unbalanced translocation one had a random error). We did an unmedicated transfer at Dr. Reichman's suggestion. My hormones were checked daily, and my lining was also checked a few times. Transferred one embryo 5 days after ovulation. Then started on progesterone 100 mg suppositories twice a day up until I was 10 weeks pregnant. I'm now 12 weeks pregnant!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Christine Lu)
The team at Cornell, and all the individuals we interacted with (nurses, administrative staff, the doctors, the embryologists, geneticists, etc.) were very professional and we received top notch treatment. Christine, Dr. Reichman's nurse, is very detail oriented and on top of her stuff. She talks fast but rest assured she will repeat things if you need her to. She answered the millions of questions I had with patience.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Strengths - Male factor infertility, coordination with urologist, detail oriented, fast paced, many office locations to choose form, able to work around a patient's schedule as they have many doctor's and nurses on staff, early hours, flexibility in virtual appt scheduling, clean, COVID guidelines are great. Weakness - If you want a clinic where you see the same doctor and nurse every time this isn't it. They work around the patient's schedule. In my eyes this is a strength because they are maximizing success rather than prescribing you hormones just to fit their schedule. But consistency in care with appts and egg retrievals might be important to some. Overall, they are goal oriented and excellent for male factor infertility.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Very expensive as we had no IVF coverage and were coming from out of state. We also genetically tested 10 embryos and did ICSI. Resulted in roughly $40k in costs with out of state travel.
Describe David Reichman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Listen to Dr. Reichman's advice. He's all about maximizing success and minimizing risk. We did eSET as I am 31 and the embryo was genetically tested.

I traveled to NYC for treatment after [Dr. Reichman]. had been recommended to me by 2 friends and after a failed cycle in my hometown, Miami...He's incredibly honest, encouraging, and provided a personalized experience - far superior than my prior experiences. I also felt my drug protocol was more personalized - he lowered my drugs (less side effects, less costly) and we had a higher # of eggs retrieved, despite starting with same # of eggs on day 3 for all 4 of my cycles. I saw him almost every visit (occasionally saw another MD for a weekend visit). I felt like he really cared about my overall success.
She [nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College] was easy to get in touch with by phone and email. I felt like she really cared about my success - she followed up on my beta tests both times (I used an outside lab), despite it being her day off both times...Initially my insurance denied covering the cycle given I had frozen eggs, but Dr. Reichman battled it out with the insurance company in a peer-to-peer, and they overturned the denial...Clinic was very efficient - in both Tribeca office and uptown. High volume but they move quickly - I never had to wait more than 5 minutes for an appointment. Front desk and other staff very pleasant.
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Reichman was the 4th reproductive endocrinologist I've seen, as I had completed 2 egg retrievals to freeze eggs (yielded 2 PGS embryos), then 1 cycle for IVF in Miami (0 PGS embryos), then 1 egg retrieval with Dr. Reichman (3 PGS embryos). I traveled to NYC for treatment after Dr. R. had been recommended to me by 2 friends and after a failed cycle in my hometown, Miami. First consult was by phone and I felt he was going to be the MD to get me pregnant - and he did, I'm 11 weeks pregnant. Overall experience with Dr. R was top notch. He's incredibly honest, encouraging, and provided a personalized experience - far superior than my prior experiences. I also felt my drug protocol was more personalized - he lowered my drugs (less side effects, less costly) and we had a higher # of eggs retrieved, despite starting with same # of eggs on day 3 for all 4 of my cycles. I saw him almost every visit (occasionally saw another MD for a weekend visit). I felt like he really cared about my overall success.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Don't be afraid to ask any question, even if it seems silly or uninformed. Dr. Reichman is patient and will answer anything.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Cornell is a big center, which was one of the main reasons I chose Cornell. (High volume usually indicates highly skilled embryologists and top notch technology). Dr. Reichman and his nurse Christine makes you feel like you are their only patient, they are so responsive! Dr. Reichman usually responded to my emails within minutes. He personally called me when we had big updates (genetic testing results, pregnancy test results). He called me when my first transfer didn't work - I was heartbroken but he immediately helped me focus on my next transfer with a detailed plan for how we'll try again (next transfer worked!).
Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
My protocol was straightforward -- 225 gonal, 150 menopur, then added cetrotide later. In previous cycle with Miami MD, we did 350 gonal, 75/150 menopur and a flare protocol (started w/ lupron). Dr. Reichman didn't think I needed such a high dosage given my weight and ovarian reserve and he was right - we got better results. For transfer, we first did a natural cycle, which didn't take. 2nd cycle was a medicated cycle, which worked.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Christine Lu)
Christine is super responsive and very detail oriented. She and Dr. Reichman work as a true team. She was easy to get in touch with by phone and email. I felt like she really cared about my success - she followed up on my beta tests both times (I used an outside lab), despite it being her day off both times. The other nurses were also great - they call with test results if it's a weekend. Christine takes her time and will answer any questions you have, by phone or email. I did a lot of my monitoring remotely and she was amazing with helping to coordinate. she helped me find the best options for my schedule given I was out of nyc at various times during transfer periods.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
The biggest strength of Cornell is their embryologists and laboratory high tech equipment. I did a consult with a top doctor in Beverly Hills who referenced Cornell's technology as top notch and too expensive for most fertility centers. Clinic was very efficient - in both Tribeca office and uptown. High volume but they move quickly - I never had to wait more than 5 minutes for an appointment. Front desk and other staff very pleasant.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Most of my clinic/procedure costs were covered by insurance. Initially my insurance denied covering the cycle given I had frozen eggs, but Dr. Reichman battled it out with the insurance company in a peer-to-peer, and they overturned the denial. I self-paid for drugs and they helped me find the most affordable pharmacy. Dr. Reichman also worked the system to allow me to transfer my frozen eggs from another institution so they could be combined with the eggs retrieved to save costs for fertilization and genetic testing.
Describe David Reichman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Given I had PGS-tested embryos, Dr. Reichman strongly recommended transferring only 1 embryo in both of my transfers. He shared that birth defects are 4x in twins and I would be 30% chance likely to have twins.

David Reichman is for you if you want cutting edge, informed fertility care — and advice guided by science and delivered in a blunt but deeply supportive manner...Dr. Reichman explained with great care my options for treatment, the likelihood of success (based on cutting edge scientific research and probabilities based on age and other risk factors)... wanted frank and well researched advice and I felt I received this and more under Reichman’s expert care...he was also sensitive to our financial constraints and suggested a course of action based on both his medical opinion and the resources we had to spend

It was spotless; social distancing and the timing of patient visits was impeccable. It all felt very safe and well thought out.

How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
David Reichman provided candid and well informed advice, and responded to all of my medical concerns. Importantly, he was also sensitive to our financial constraints and suggested a course of action based on both his medical opinion and the resources we had to spend. I appreciated this sensitivity and it made me trust his judgment all the more. I was very lucky to become pregnant during a timed intercourse cycle with clomid while we were preparing to undergo ivf in the following month. The journey of many women is far far longer, but I felt from the beginning that I was in excellent hands (a feeling that does not come easy for me as a research scientist myself who questions everyone and everything for a living!). Even when I became pregnant he continued to monitor the early stages very closely particularly as I was at a heightened risk for ectopic pregnancy. I very much appreciated his blunt assessments of miscarriage risk—while we were tentatively optimistic he reminded me gently of the complications that can arise. Frankly, I appreciated this honesty and caution as many women (myself included) go into fertility treatment with many expectations and fear. His honest and deeply informed demeanor inspires confidence in the process and was, for me, a source of comfort on an emotional journey. No less, he treatment me during the pandemic which added a real layer of risk for all of us. I could not have imagined a better experience and, while we hope to see this pregnancy to term, I would absolutely seek his expertise out in the future.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
David Reichman is for you if you want cutting edge, informed fertility care — and advice guided by science and delivered in a blunt but deeply supportive manner. This was an ideal fit for me and I think it would be for many women on a fertility journey alone or with a partner.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Reichman explained with great care my options for treatment, the likelihood of success (based on cutting edge scientific research and probabilities based on age and other risk factors), and the psychological and physiological factors I should consider in pursuing a course of action. My partner and I feel we received extraordinary care from him and his nursing team (the very professional and responsive admin staff also play a big role). I am also a research scientist and I wanted frank and well researched advice and I felt I received this and more under Reichman’s expert care.
Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I was lucky to conceive on my first full cycle under Dr Reichmans care with clomid and timed intercourse. This involved frequent monitoring of ovulation and hormonal levels. We had planned to do only one round of clomid due to a suspected tubal block on one side (which increases the risk of ectopic pregnancy) and were preparing to go into IVF which he thought was the best chance of success based on the amount of time we had been trying to conceive.

Describe the costs associated with your care under David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
The fees are high but my insurance covered most of my procedures. My insurance only covered one round of IVF (which we were preparing for) so we worked closely with the billing department to estimate costs not covered by insurance. We would not have been able to afford to pay out of pocket. Dr Reichman discussed financial concerns with me openly and appraised me of new fertility coverage in the city of New York I might be able to take advantage of. My employer was exempt from the program but it was very useful information to have on hand.

Dr. Reichman created a personal connection immediately. I saw him every time I visited the practice (except for blood test only) and he always made me feel like I was a top priority, never missing a beat in knowing my history and treatment plan...He is warm and compassionate but also honest and forthcoming in setting expectations based on my condition. While some visits were very short, I never felt rushed and he sets up separate 'talk' appointments just to plan out treatment, discuss options and questions. He is also extremely responsive via email.
I never had an issue with billing, appointments, or anything else from an administrative perspective [at Weill Cornell Medical College]. Wait times vary but were never very long. All of the nurses and front desk staff that I came into contact with were professional and kind...Initially, first my appointment was maybe 8 weeks out. I asked to be placed on the wait list and got a call within a few weeks and ran down to see him. Best decision I made! From there on out appointments were frequent and easy to come by.

I had a unique case as I do not have traditional fertility issues. He diagnosed me with Asherman's syndrome (uterine scarring) from a d&c I had a few months prior. He was able to diagnose me via saline sonogram, followed by surgery - hysteroscopy with adhesion removal. Post surgery he placed a balloon in my uterus and had estrogen treatment. 1 month post-surgery, I had a saline sonogram and HSG to confirm that the scarring had been removed, followed by monitoring to see how my lining responded post-surgery.

He [Dr. David Reichman] was confident that my recurring losses were due to genetically abnormal embryos so he recommended PGS testing, which was the best call - we should have listened sooner. For my retreival we used Gonal-F, Menepur and Ganirelix and I was monitored very closely throughout the whole cycle...recommended transfering only one embryo...brought some much-needed levity that we always appreciated. Additionally, I can't say enough wonderful things about his office staff. The receptionists knew me by name and the nurses always greeted us with a smile no

How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Reichman is an exceptionally intelligent, patient and compassionate doctor, who somehow balances his deep wealth of knowledge with incredible humanity, kindness and humor. Throughout my time under his care he always listened, gave his honest opinion and provided options without ever pushing me, which I really appreciated. I was hesitant to jump into any intense treatments so we started with timed intercourse followed by IUIs. I got pregnant within a few months, but it turned out to be an ectopic resulting in emergency surgery to remove my fallopian tube. My husband and I will never forget how amazing Dr Reichman was throughout the whole experience. On a Friday evening, he rushed to meet us at the ER and canceled his own plans for the night so that he could be there with us and perform the surgery himself. This was not something he had to do - and I knew other doctors wouldn't - but that's how much he cares about his patients. He turned a traumatic situation into something much more bearable and assured us this would not prevent me from becoming pregnant. Given how painful the fertility journey can be, we couldn't imagine getting through it without a doctor who cared as much as he did. Even after this experience (and another miscarriage) he didn't push me into IVF until I felt ready, even though he knew it would give us our best chance of success. Of course he was right, and I got pregnant from my first transfer (which he performed.) We trusted him throughout the entire process and he never steered us wrong. We felt incredibly lucky to be under his care and will never be able to thank him enough for everything.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Trust what he says. He truly cares about you as a patient and person and knows what he is doing.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Regardless of the many patients under his care, Dr Reichman remembered every detail of my case. He was always patient, answering all of my questions and calming my fears. He would consistently ask how my husband and I were doing, and was genuinly concerned about the emotional toll that my last miscarriage took on us (which was the result of natural conception, before we followed his recommendation to try IVF with genetically tested embryos). In every interaction, it was obvious he cared about us as people and understood how trying this process can be. He also brought some much-needed levity that we always appreciated. Additionally, I can't say enough wonderful things about his office staff. The receptionists knew me by name and the nurses always greeted us with a smile no matter how early it was or how many patients were waiting. This makes all of the difference when you're starting so many of your days there.
Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Since I am fairly young, had gotten pregnant once before, and testing showed no concerns with my health or my husband's, we started with timed intercourse then moved on to try two IUIs. We attempted a third IUI with Clomid but canceled once Dr Reichman saw I was ovulating on my left side where my fallopian tube had been removed. I ended up getting pregnant naturally but it resulted in another miscarriage, after which we finally took Dr Reichman's advice and turned to IVF. He was confident that my recurring losses were due to genetically abnormal embryos so he recommended PGS testing, which was the best call - we should have listened sooner. For my retreival we used Gonal-F, Menepur and Ganirelix and I was monitored very closely throughout the whole cycle. Dr Reichman got us great results, but unfortunately after PGS we had high attrition and were left with only 2 normal embryos. He recommended we move forward with another retrieval which wasn't what we planned, but we talked it through and he felt it would serve us better in the long run to start with more embryos so we could alleviate some pressure, and he was right. We got amazing results from my second retreival (same protocol) and we were able to move forward with a transfer soon after (natrual cycle with a frozen day 5 embryo), which was successful.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Christine Lu)
Christine was fantastic. She always called with my results, returned emails and phone calls very promptly, and answered all of my many questions without making me feel crazy (I was an anxious patient!) She went out of her way to make sure we always had what we needed in terms of meds, and seemed genuinly happy for us whenever we got good news. I loved her upbeat and positive personality.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
We loved the Tribeca office. It was a 5 minute walk from my office which was huge, but I would have traveled much further for the care I received there. Every team member, whether it be a receptionist or nurse, was always patient and kind which makes a big difference when you are struggling with infertility and have to trek in so often. It was never lost on me how hard they work and how many vulerable and anxious patients they deal with all day, and yet they were still always so pleasant. I had to go to the UES location a couple of times on weekends and it made me appreciate Tribeca even more, which feels much more intimate and way less overwhelming.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Very well organized, which was always surprising to me given how busy the waiting room could get. If you arrive early enough you don't have to wait. However, there were days I rolled out of bed on the later side and still never waited more than 20 minutes.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Insurance did not cover our first round of IVF, so we ended up paying about $30k in all. I was able to switch to a different insurance plan before my second retrieval so paid less. Dr Reichman's staff was always transparent about what the costs would be before we started anything.
Describe David Reichman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Dr Reichman recommended transfering only one embryo, which we were completely aligned with.

We had a 10 week wait to get our initial meeting with Dr Reichman but I'm glad that didn't deter us. Once you are Dr Reichman's patient he is very responsive, and availability isn't an issue...We did 2 retrievals and one (successful!) frozen embryo transfer...We did PGS testing on our embryos. These were the same drugs that I used at a previous clinic with two other Drs, but Dr Reichman seemed more up to date than the other Drs were with various testing methods, clinical trials, etc. The treatment with Dr Reichman felt more cutting edge. He is very informed, he listens to your goals and puts together a great state-of-the-art plan just for you.
I really like the clinic [Weill Cornell Medical College]! The wait times were never bad, despite lots of patients coming and going. The clinic itself is clean and nice. It was astonishing how crowded the waiting room was at the Upper East Side office during weekend monitoring hours, but even there I didn't wait for too long...Our main nurse Christine is a so kind, reassuring, and extremely organized. She always answered my emailed questions quickly and set my mind at ease. I was always so happy to see her at the practice...Cost was always made clear to us in advance and there were no surprises.
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I cannot recommend Dr Reichman highly enough. Communication via email is swift and well thought-out. He takes the time to answer questions thoroughly. and examine the pros and cons of various approaches when you could reasonably choose between several treatment options. I felt very confident in his knowledge and experience and trusted him completely. I always felt informed. Dr Reichman also seemed genuinely invested in the outcome of my treatment and my comfort during the process. He goes above and beyond for his patients. He concluded I needed surgery for a fibroid and referred me to a high-profile surgeon at a NYC different hospital. I was crushed to learn the surgeon had a 3 month wait just for a consult; my biological clock was ticking loudly in the background! Dr Reichman personally went out of his way to help me get an appointment with the surgeon 10 days later, and then later high-fived me happily when my post-surgery ultrasound revealed the operation had been a huge success. Prior to that, we had a disappointing outcome with an embryo retrieval, and Dr Reichman called us himself and delivered the news with the perfect balance of no-nonsense, compassion, and optimism about our future. IVF is a grueling process with lots of highs and lows, and I felt SO lucky to have Dr Reichman in my corner throughout.

Book you initial consult now. We had a 10 week wait to get our initial meeting with Dr Reichman but I'm glad that didn't deter us. Once you are Dr Reichman's patient he is very responsive, and availability isn't an issue.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Reichman is fantastic! He is kind and direct, and has a very warm demeanor and fun sense of humor. He clearly knows his stuff, and is quick to cite "the literature" and his own experience to answer all questions thoroughly. He is realistic yet encouraging, remembers details about your treatment and your life, and is always on your side.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Christine L )
The nursing staff and front desk staff are all terrific. I am so impressed with them, and grateful for the care they provided. Our main nurse Christine is a so kind, reassuring, and extremely organized. She always answered my emailed questions quickly and set my mind at ease. I was always so happy to see her at the practice. With all the required consent forms and appointments, IVF entails quite a bit of admin which can be burdensome during an already stressful process. The Cornell team is a well-oiled machine, and kept me on track with my medications, visits, etc. Sounds like a small thing but it's extremely helpful. Our previous clinic was disorganized and it was SO frustrating and wasted so much time and energy. The Tribeca front desk staff is also extremely kind and knew me by name. They all seem genuinely delighted when my FET was a success, which made that happy appointment feel even more special. Thank you Team Tribeca!

Describe David Reichman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
From the beginning of our fertility "journey" my husband and I have been pretty committed to the idea of doing a single embryo transfer with PGS. Dr Reichman supported this idea. I never inquired about transferring more than one embryo at a time.

I wanted to handle every aspect of my journey, from the IVF protocols to the timing of transfer. I second guessed his nurses constantly. I emailed Dr. Reichman incessantly with compromises, worries, and left-field inquiries. He almost always answered in detail, which is something that I have yet to come across in other NYC physicians who are as busy as he is. He did not have unlimited patience, but he was always willing to sit down and touch base with us to alleviate fears, or to set our patient-physician relationship back on track after an argument.
The Tribeca office staff [at Weill Cornell] always remembered my name...Hannah was Dr. Reichman's nurse, whom I worked with before she went out on maternity leave. She was always cheerful and willing to help, but in most cases she did not know the extent of my discussions with Dr. Reichman, so I preferred to speak directly with the doctor...Front desk is very friendly. I chose this clinic due to early monitoring hours before work
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Reichman was one of five REs in the NYC area my husband and I consulted with. He was optimistic with my case from the beginning, even when I felt pessimistic. I had come to see him having just experienced my very first pregnancy, which became a miscarriage at 10 weeks. I was emotional but had my heart set on doing everything possible to becoming pregnant again. I micromanaged him.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Advocate for yourself. Dr. Reichman is incredibly smart. If your requests are substantiated, he will compromise with you on reasonable grounds.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
The Tribeca office staff always remembered my name, and Dr. Reichman kept detailed notes on my case.
Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
We dove straight into IVF due to my diminished ovarian reserve. Dr. Reichman had pitched starting with IUI/letrozole, but he supported my more aggressive choice. I insisted on a natural start, resulting in 8 retrieved, 5 fertilized, and 4 frozen. We did not PGS test. The second cycle, he proposed using BCP. I was afraid of being oversuppressed and did not want to try this modification, but he assured me it would give good results. Unfortunately, I developed a lead follicle and he canceled that cycle. The third cycle, he proposed estrogen priming. I also fought him on this. Although I had 7 follicles going into retrieval, only 2 were retrieved. Both were alive at day 6, frozen, and confirmed to be PGS normal. I took some time off after the last cycle to undergo several back to back surgeries. In January of 2019, I insisted Dr. Reichman raise a request to the embryology lab for them to transfer the second-best graded frozen embryo in my batch. That FET resulted in my current pregnancy - I am due in three weeks.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Hannah was Dr. Reichman's nurse, whom I worked with before she went out on maternity leave. She was always cheerful and willing to help, but in most cases she did not know the extent of my discussions with Dr. Reichman, so I preferred to speak directly with the doctor.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Weill Cornell Tribeca - biggest pro is that the physician performs the monitoring ultrasounds. I was able to see Dr. Reichman at almost every single monitoring appointment during the week. In addition, the clinic is clean, and the calls from nurses during the cycle are consistent and organized. Front desk is very friendly. I chose this clinic due to early monitoring hours before work, and the fact that it was a 5 minute walk from my apartment. Weakness: you do not get to see your doctor on weekends and holidays unless he/she happens to be on call. My weekend treks up to the UES office were always much worse experiences (i.e., longer wait times, unfamiliar physicians, and several incompetent nurses).
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
If you are willing to be at the office right at 6:30, there is almost no wait time. I made it my priority to always be in by 7am, and never had an issue being late to work.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
My husband and I are fortunate to both have some fertility coverage from work. During 2018 when we were banking embryos, we were on his insurance, which covered the entirety of the 1st and 2nd round. We paid about $15,000 out of pocket for the 3rd round.
Describe David Reichman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Dr. Reichman was adamant on single embryo transfer with me, citing my age and body type (slim/petite).

Dr. Reichman is an extremely personable physician. He makes his patients feel like they matter. He takes time at every appointment with you, answers every question you have, and does not make you feel rushed. There were a couple times he suggested we set an appointment for a "strategy meeting" - his words - which we loved. He knows every detail about his patients. He remembers everything, even asking about how our trip to Chicago was when we had a follow-up appointment with him.
front-desk staff [at Weill Cornell Medical College] are the nicest and sweetest team members. They remember your name, ask how you're doing, and are always on top of everything...[the nurse] replied very timely to emails...Monitoring appointments were very efficient...The office seems newer with state-of-the-art equipment and the most friendly staff. His staff are extremely helpful, especially if you need support dealing with prior-auths and insurance - they stepped in and before I knew it everything was handled.
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Reichman is like no other. We traveled from Pennsylvania to New York and it was all worth it. From the moment we had our initial consultation with him he gave us hope and made us feel like he truly cared. I have not had an easy journey with fertility - 2 natural pregnancies both ending in miscarriages, being told by a previous RE my lining was too thin and so never even getting to a transfer attempt, retained products of conception after a D&C by my OB. But Dr. Reichman never gave up. I remember starting my IVF cycle with him in March 2018 and during a saline sonogram is when he discovered I had retained products of conception and told me he would have to go in and do surgery after I completed the IVF cycle and retrieval. I started crying in the exam room. Dr. Reichman was extremely comforting, telling me "I am in your corner," letting me know that he would take care of me during the surgery as I was worried about my lining, and that together we would get through this and meet our end goal of having a baby. He is an extremely compassionate and caring physician, but he is also a realist - he is very straightforward with what he thinks. This is a quality my husband and I appreciated; we wanted someone who would be direct and honest. Dr. Reichman is always thinking about what is best for his patients; he individualizes every plan of care to each of his patients.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Don't be afraid to ask questions. He answers every single one of them without making you feel rushed or that it's a silly question.

Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I was on Gonal-F, Menopur, and Cetrotide, with an HCG trigger shot before the egg retrieval. I can't remember the exact dosages but he had me on a low dose of Gonal-F. I only had 5 antral follicles. We retrieved 5 eggs, all 5 fertilized, 3 made it to PGS testing and all 3 were PGS normal! We did not expect this and were thrilled, as my last miscarriage was confirmed due to chromosome issues.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Hannah)
My primary nurse that I communicated with was Hannah. She always showed compassion during every interaction or phone call. She answered every question and made sure you understood your directions and next steps before hanging up the phone. Even when meeting in person about something Hannah never rushed you and was very thorough in her care and explanations. She also replied very timely to emails.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Weill Cornell Reproductive Medicine is a top center for infertility. As I said we traveled from PA to NY to be a patient and it was worth it in every way. I only wish we had done this from the beginning instead of wasting a year with a different RE in PA. Dr. Reichman's Tribeca office is absolutely wonderful. The office seems newer with state-of-the-art equipment and the most friendly staff. His staff are extremely helpful, especially if you need support dealing with prior-auths and insurance - they stepped in and before I knew it everything was handled.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Monitoring appointments were very efficient. You have a window of time they do "morning monitoring" and you don't have to wait very long once you arrive. Once you are pregnant, the 2-3 ultrasounds you have to have are via appointment after monitoring hours.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I was lucky as my insurance covered IVF 100%; the cost of the medications were mostly covered as well. We did pay a few hundred dollars though for some genetic testing and other blood work to be done as I had two previous miscarriages.
Describe David Reichman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
From my experience, I believe Dr. Reichman prefers single embryo transfer.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He [Dr. Reichman] can be blunt with the reality of things, but he does care about you getting success and knows his stuff. If you want someone with a super compassionate bedside manner he may not be the one for you, but he certainly takes his work seriously and is always positive yet realistic. If you are paying out of pocket, he also understands the great cost of IVF and takes that into account when recommending next steps, which I really appreciate.
In the Tribeca office [of Weill Cornell Medical College] it is a very pleasant experience even when crowded -- and it's never that bad. I don't think I have waited longer than 30 min to be seen and sometimes i get seen within 10 min...Approx 10K for egg retrieval (all monitoring included)...The Tribeca location is fantastic. It is calm, comfortable, and all new...The nurses are all very nice. It's so much better than the UES location! The receptionists are also very nice and helpful
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I came to Dr. Reichman from another doctor only because my insurance changed and it now covers IVF and the other place I was going doesn't take my insurance. Dr. Reichman agreed with the assessment of my other doctor (age-related infertility). Although I feel I got more compassionate "bedside manner" from the first doctor, I appreciate that I see Dr. Reichman for every monitoring visit (at the Tribeca Office). He may take a day or so to email back, but he always always responds to email. His answers are short but to the point. He's gives it to you straight so you have to be able to take that, but I have no doubt he knows that he's talking about! I feel I am in good hands for sure.

Dr. Reichman sees me every visit (unless it is a weekend or he is off for a holiday), which I appreciate. He always seems to consider my case and our next steps carefully. He doesn't have the warmest bedside manner, and doesn't seem to plug into the emotional toll this takes, but he does lay out the numbers and realities and stays positive.
Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
2 stimulation cycles. Both times mostly 150 menapure, 300 gonal f, then leuprolide added in. Egg retrieval and fertilization with ICSI using fresh sample. Waited the 5 days to see which embryos survived and did genetic testing on those that did. Cycle 1 - 10 eggs retrieved, 8 mature, 6 fertilized, 4 embryos genetically tested, 1 recommended for transfer. Cycle 2 - 7 eggs retrieved, 6 mature, 3 fertilized, 2 genetically tested - awaiting results. Still have not yet done an embryo transfer.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Hannah)
Dr. Riechman's main nurse is fantastic. She always answers my questions and when I wanted to order fewer meds since i had to pay OOP as I hit my insurance limit, she worked with me on ordering just what was necessary. She's a pleasure every time I speak with her. Any other nurses that cover for her are also great.

My insurance paid for up to 40K of my expenses. After I hit my limit, I have to pay OOP. Approx 10K for egg retrieval (all monitoring included), 1K for ICSI fertilization, 4K for PGD/PGS testing. 1K hospital fee. Not sure what frozen embryo transfer will cost. Meds were covered by insurance but i think it cost 10K

at every meeting, he [Dr. Reichman] was able to recall the exact details of my treatment, past exchanges, and even personal info. I felt so comfortable with Dr. Reichman from our first meeting, and it never wavered throughout the IUI and IVF process...the level of care, personalized treatment, and attentiveness I received from Dr. Reichman was unique and exceptional...
I had a great experience with Weill Cornell and I found everything from the state of the facilities to the ease of billing to be unparalleled. I particularly loved the Tribeca offices and never waited more than five minutes for any appointment... she [nurse] was always willing to take the extra time to offer context and answer questions. I never felt uncertain or in the dark. And perhaps most importantly, Christine is just a lovely, lovely person. She's quick to laugh and like Dr. Reichman, makes you feel as if you have a real teammate throughout the whole process.
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I saw Dr. Reichman after my husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for about one year. We were hesitant to move onto ART, both because we'd heard horror stories about the process and because it meant acknowledging we probably weren't going to be able to do this on our own. I found Dr. Reichman on this very site (!), and while I expected to wait a while for an appointment given the *glowing* reviews, was actually able to meet with him pretty quickly. I connected and felt comfortable with him immediately, and appreciated his candor and confidence -- I trusted him completely and had no doubt this process was going to work for us. After speaking with several friends who've undergone IVF with different doctors, I also believe the level of care, personalized treatment, and attentiveness I received from Dr. Reichman was unique and exceptional. He's a brilliant doctor with a keen eye for detail, he brings a sense of levity to an otherwise serious process, and somehow manages to respond to emails within hours. He's truly a unicorn! I couldn't have asked for a smoother IVF process or outcome and truly can't imagine there to be a better doctor out there. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone struggling with fertility issues.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Trust him. Whether or not you want to admit it, he knows better than you (unless you also happen to be a RE!)
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I am so lucky to have been treated by Dr. Reichman. He was undoubtedly seeing countless patients during our nine months together, but at every meeting, he was able to recall the exact details of my treatment, past exchanges, and even personal info. I felt so comfortable with Dr. Reichman from our first meeting, and it never wavered throughout the IUI and IVF process.
Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I started with four IUI cycles. I was only planning on three but my insurance covered them and I couldn't start IVF until after the holidays anyway, so I figured it couldn't hurt. They didn't work, and honestly, I found them to be more emotionally draining than IVF. I then moved onto IVF. I had 11 total days of injections, starting with 150 units of Menopur and 175 units of GonalF, adding Cetrotide on day six, and eventually tapering down to 75 units Menopur and 50 units GonalF based on my hormone levels. I went into the office for bloodwork every other day, with three ultrasounds throughout the process. My cycle fell during a holiday weekend so I spent more time on the UES than Tribeca, and only saw Dr. Reichman twice, but definitely felt his presence throughout the process. I also lucked out because Dr. Reichman happened to be performing retrievals on the day mine was scheduled, which really made it feel like a team effort! My first (and only) cycle produced 29 eggs, 23 fertilized, 21 day 5 blasts, and 14 PGS tested embryos. And of those 14, one produced the science kid that I've been cookin' for the last five months.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Christine!)
I worked primarily with Christine and truly cannot sing her praises loud enough. Not only was she on top of her shit, she was always willing to take the extra time to offer context and answer questions. I never felt uncertain or in the dark. And perhaps most importantly, Christine is just a lovely, lovely person. She's quick to laugh and like Dr. Reichman, makes you feel as if you have a real teammate throughout the whole process.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
I had a great experience with Weill Cornell and I found everything from the state of the facilities to the ease of billing to be unparalleled. I particularly loved the Tribeca offices and never waited more than five minutes for any appointment -- a rarity in medicine!
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
All of my expenses, including the maximum $$ for PGS testing, were covered by my insurance.
Describe David Reichman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Our plan was always for a single embryo transfer.

I had a series of tests done and thanks to Dr. Reichman using advanced imaging and data to challenge an incorrect diagnosis from my Endocrinologist, we determined that it was my thyroid that was preventing me from getting pregnant. I underwent RAI (radioactive iodine therapy) which prevented me from trying to get pregnant for at least 6 months. Once I was cleared, Dr. Reichman said we should try naturally for 6 months and only after that will we consider IVF, but he was confident it would happen naturally. He was right!
The clinic [Weill Cornell Medical College] is easy to get to, warm, welcoming, clean, professional, and everything you'd want in a medical office. The staff in this office really stand out. They are organized and efficient and everyone has great bedside manner...Dr. Reichman is knowledgeable, gentle, responsive, transparent and caring. He explains everything at every step in language non-physicians can easily understand.
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Reichman is the reason I am pregnant (naturally) after a long and uncertain TTC journey. He truly is an angel in the form of the most knowledgeable, empathetic, and transparent doctor that's ever cared for me. About 2.5 years ago I was 33, I got off birth control because my husband and I were ready to start a family. My body went nuts on me so I went to an OB/GYN, who told me to start with an Endocrinologist and also a Reproductive Endocrinologist (Dr. Reichman). I had a series of tests done and thanks to Dr. Reichman using advanced imaging and data to challenge an incorrect diagnosis from my Endocrinologist, we determined that it was my thyroid that was preventing me from getting pregnant. I underwent RAI (radioactive iodine therapy) which prevented me from trying to get pregnant for at least 6 months. Once I was cleared, Dr. Reichman said we should try naturally for 6 months and only after that will we consider IVF, but he was confident it would happen naturally. He was right! After 4 months of trying, my husband (40) and I (35) are pregnant and Dr. Reichman performed my first three ultrasounds. I am graduating to my OB/GYN now, but will sincerely miss being under the care of Dr. Reichman. I cannot recommend him enough and if being under his care is a possibility for you, I promise your experience will be as life-changing as mine.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
He is open minded and will answer any question you may have so don't be afraid to ask anything. He is the best

Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Positive having satellite locations in the city for early morning monitoring to get appointments done quickly before work in the morning. Lots of staff helping with checkins, billing, bloodwork, and assisting the doctors in exam room. Everyone was kind and helpful.

Procedures like egg retrieval and transfers were done in hospital , felt safe if anything were to go wrong.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.

Dr Reichman made me feel like we were a team...cautiously optimistic, and assured me, I will get you through this...compassionate, warm, very sharp, has a great memory, and even pronounced my husband's name correctly (haha!)...egg retrieval and embryo transfer were done by two other Doctor...they had all received clear instructions from Dr Reichman about me. I am a little scaredy cat, and think he told them to take care of this one, but honestly that made me trust him even more!
Both Tribeca and uptown [Weill Cornell Medical College] are well organized. I never had to wait for more than 5 minutes at either of the places...The whole atmosphere is so personalized, and you feel like you know them all. There is never a crowd, and you feel like it is just you...At the uptown office, they call out people's name very loudly...I wish they had some other way to call patients...
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I have been married for eight years with no children to date. I moved to New York City, and approached Doctor after seeing his fabulous reviews on FertilityIQ. I had done few IUIs before with two other Doctors, and was 35 at the time. I knew I was a case of unexplained infertility. Dr Reichman, in the very first meeting told me, we should move fast, and we jointly decided to go ahead with IVF. I met Dr Reichman in Oct 2021, did my IVF medications in Nov 2021, and had a successful egg retrieval in early December resulting in 18 eggs, 14 mature, that translated to 8 healthy embryos after genetic testing. First implantation was in January 2022, and it was successful. I am now 4 weeks pregnant. If this is not a dream run, then what is? Also, I did not have any kind of complications after any of the procedures, no OHSS, no cramps, nothing. Doctor is very compassionate, warm, very sharp, has a great memory, and even pronounced my husband's name correctly (haha!).He comes thoroughly prepared for every visit, and over the few interactions I started feeling that God had taken me to NYC to meet him.My egg retrieval and embryo transfer were done by two other Doctors but when I went to the operation theatre for the procedures, I realized, that they had all received clear instructions from Dr Reichman about me. I am a little scaredy cat, and think he told them to take care of this one, but honestly that made me trust him even more! I did not see Doctor in every visit, as sometimes we have to go to 1305 York Avenue on weekends, but at every point in this journey, Doctor was with me. I will be transferred to a obgyn shortly. Though I know that is good for me, I will miss seeing Dr Reichman.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
It would be good to memorize all the questions you want to ask Doc. He is a busy man. Though he is very patient, and will not leave without answering all your questions, it would be best for you to go prepared. And Doctor has a great memory, so tell him all your concerns, and he will use that info, at various points along the journey
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Reichman made me feel like we were a team, all through this journey. He was cautiously optimistic, and assured me, I will get you through this, and I will be holding your hand through this, and thats exactly what he did !
Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I had Follistim, Menopur, Ganerelix with a Leuprolide and Pregnyl Trigger on day 12. We retrieved 18 eggs, 14 mature, 9 embryos. After genetic testing, 8 were normal. Implantation was on a natural cycle with just an Ovidrel shot, and it was successful, followed by vaginal progesterone supplements.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Christine)
Christine was my nurse through this journey. She is very organized, very clear, and I think Dr Reichman and Christine make a great team. She is picture perfect. I cannot think of one thing that went wrong. I would just call her, and leave a voice message. She will call back, and then clarify every little question or concern. You can hear the sound of her tapping away on her computer when she is talking to you. Maybe she is taking notes. But she is never the first person to keep the phone. She will hold the phone until you tell her, Thank you Christine, everything is clear to me. I am guessing she has so many patients like me that she is dealing at the same time. But she will make you feel like you are the only one! How she does that, only she knows. It has to be a personality trait. Christine is the best! I think Dr Reichman and Tribeca office are really lucky to have her in their team.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Both Tribeca and uptown are well organized. I never had to wait for more than 5 minutes at either of the places, but if I have to, I will rank Tribeca as Number 1. The whole atmosphere is so personalized, and you feel like you know them all. There is never a crowd, and you feel like it is just you and that one other patient doing an infertility treatment, while the reality is that they are so organized, we don't see the 101 people who turn up there. At the uptown office, they call out people's name very loudly. Though we are all there for infertility issues, I wish they had some other way to call patients. Maybe a token system or something.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
My insurance covered all of it, except for the genetic testing.
Describe David Reichman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Doctor strongly advised to proceed only with Single embryo transfer, and also suggested genetic testing. I was on board with this idea, from day 1. All my husband and I want is one healthy baby. :)

How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
We conceived our first baby under Dr. Reichman’ scare, and were sure we will come back to him for baby #2. The level of care and emotional support he provided were invaluable. He knew our history by heart, gave us options and helped us determine which one was best for us. We were successful on the first transfer with existing embryos from previous cycles. I am currently 29-weeks pregnant with a healthy baby.

Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Dr. Reichman gave us options - to use frozen embryos from previous cycles (knowing that they never stick when we were trying for baby #1, even if genetically normal), or to repeat what worked for baby #1 (using testicular sperm and do fresh transfer). We had 7 frozen embryos from 2 years ago and decided to give it one last try. Dr. Reichman insisted on programmed cycle, so we can control every aspect of the transfer, given my fluctuating hormones. We transferred 1 untested embryo, which resulted in a positive outcome. I’m currently in week 29 of pregnancy, and so far so good.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Christin Lu)

1 frozen transfer (~$4K) fully covered. Y insurance. All medication was also fully covered by insurance.
Describe David Reichman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.

Dr. Reichman is extremely professional and knowledgeable and at the same time he is also very understanding and he shows empathy to the patients who goes to him. I had undergone IVF with Dr. Reichman 3 times, it was devastating to me that the first two times were unsuccessful, Dr. Reichman showed great empathy and support during that time. I remember he called me after hours to check in when I found out the embryo failed to implant during my second cycle. The biggest impact on my husband and myself was that two weeks after the embryo transfer during my third cycle, I had a terrible cramp and bleeding, we had to visit the ER after midnight. I emailed Dr. Reichman and his team after leaving the ER, he called me very early in the morning before 8 AM to tell me that he cleared a slot to see me. I remember when he showed me the flicker of the heart beat and told me that I didn’t miss carry, it was the biggest relief ever and I couldn’t thank him enough for being the type of doctor he is, caring and supportive.

Dr. Reichman is direct, yet compassionate. He truly makes you feel that he is on your team and committed to get the best results possible. His confidence as a physician is exuded through his “matter of fact” communication style. He is not pushy with treatment options and always willing to answer any questions without making you feel silly for asking...Stims: gonal, menopur, ganerelix. Novarel & lupron trigger. Natural Cycle FET - lupron trigger & endometrin post transfer.
As a practice, Cornell does not typically go into full detail explaining what is happening before and during the IVF process. I did a lot of research on my own and learned along the way. You have to advocate for yourself and ask the questions to get information. On the other hand, Cornell’s facilities and staff are amazing which leads you to trust the process and put your case in their hands.

How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
We had first engaged with a different fertility clinic, and we didn't know anything about the process and how fertility treatments should be conducted. When we switched to Dr. Reichman, we feel like we finally understood how fertility treatments should be undertaken by a real professional, and we felt that we were in the right hands. He was honest with our situation and our chances, and he made sure to advise us and make adjustments to our courses of treatment tailored to our individual circumstances. He was thorough, and we felt that we could trust him to do his very best to help us achieve a pregnancy.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?

Dr. Reichman has a large volume of patients. However, he always makes himself available to discuss questions and concerns. Nothing is to silly or small. Make sure you do your research and come prepared with your questions. Dr. Reichman is a very trustworthy doctor. He is extremely knowledgeable and I have found that he will not lead you in the wrong direction...My egg retrieval protocol was basically the same for all three retrievals as it yielded good results, especially for my age. I used Gonal F, Menopur and Leupron. During my first retrieval I wound up with 6 embryos that we froze on Day 1. The next round, I used the same protocol and wound up with 3 embryos to freeze on Day 1. The last retrieval, we decided to try a fresh transfer, which unfortunately did not work out since the quality of the one embryo I had left was not good. Right after that, it was decided that we would use the frozen embryos from the first retrieval. Dr. Reichman was well aware of my goals and how important this was to me. He designed the right plan that worked for me.
Christine [nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College] was very responsive, organized and overall invested in my success. I did a great deal of monitoring remotely and Christine always made sure I had all of the scripts I needed...The greatest strength of Weill Cornell is the quality of doctors and embryologists that work there. This clinic is run very efficiently. I never had to wait too long in the Tribeca office. The uptown office was much busier and although wait times were longer, I feel the level of service I received was superior. After coming from a private clinic that I really did feel like I was just a number at, I can truly say I was impressed with my treatment at Cornell, even with the amount of volume they had!
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I went to see Dr. Reichman after careful consideration and much research. The clinic I was previously using would not allow me to use my own eggs due to my age, even after I had a previously successful pregnancy with them at the age of 42. I was set on trying to become pregnant once again at the age of 44 using my own eggs. Dr. Reichman was not only a very skillful doctor, he was very compassionate. I needed a doctor who was going to "think outside of the box" in my case. However, I also needed someone with great skill and knowledge. I consider myself very blessed to have found Dr. Reichman. At my age, I did not want to PGS test my embryos, as I knew that most likely the quality would not come back as great. Dr. Reichman set a protocol for me that none of the other doctors I had met with or worked with even mentioned. However, it was something I was on board with 100 percent. He was very honest with me in regards to the statistics. However, I found him to be very positive and encouraging. He was truly invested in my success. When I had setbacks, they were his setbacks as well. However, he was the one to look upward and onward. He refused to give up on me. When I finally did have success, Dr. Reichman was extremely cautious given my age. However, after DNA testing was completed and the results were in, Dr. Reichman could not hide his own excitement when he personally called me with the good news. "We did it" I think were his exact words! Dr. Reichman is extremely skilled, knowledgeable, honest, compassionate and invested in his patients' success.

Weill Cornell is an extremely busy clinic. However, I never once felt like a number. Dr. Reichman was always readily available to answer my questions and concerns.
Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Due to my age, I had requested to go straight to IVF. My intention was to "bank" as many embryos as I could since I was not doing PGS testing. My egg retrieval protocol was basically the same for all three retrievals as it yielded good results, especially for my age. I used Gonal F, Menopur and Leupron. During my first retrieval I wound up with 6 embryos that we froze on Day 1. The next round, I used the same protocol and wound up with 3 embryos to freeze on Day 1.

She spent a great deal of time answering my questions thoroughly . When I needed to leave a message, I always received a call back promptly. The other nurses, especially Val, were terrific as well. I remember one time feeling very discouraged and sharing my thoughts with her. She was so encouraging and told me not to give up. When I finally did get pregnant, she was beyond excited to tell me about the positive result!

Describe David Reichman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Due to my age, I did not have PGS testing on any of these embryos. We thawed 6 embryos and 3 of them looked "decent." Dr. Reichman believed that we should transfer the three. When I questioned him about one of the embryos, he informed me of the statistics and his previous experiences. I put my trust in him and he did not disappoint!

Dr Reichman is very knowledgeable and starighforward. He would go out of his way to book proper surgery appointment with other doctors and would promptly reply to your queries over email. He would also call you personally to give details about various critical outcome during your fertility journey...He also took care of me during my natural chemical / ectopic pregnancies when I was under his care as he wanted to understand what was going on with my cycles and failed natural pregnancies.
Over the weekend you just have one option to go to their uptown location which gets pretty busy, over weekdays going to Tribeca location is much easier. May be they can start collection over weekend at their [Weill Cornell]Tribeca location also...Morning monitoring hours at Tribeca office were generally fine except few days when all doctors were not available for monitoring and they would get busy.

Dr Reichman is very knowledgeable and starighforward. He would go out of his way to book proper surgery appointment with other doctors and would promptly reply to your queries over email. He would also call you personally to give details about various critical outcome during your fertility journey. I always felt that he was dedicated and genuine throughout and was calculatively optimistic about various output. He also took care of me during my natural chemical / ectopic pregnancies when I was under his care as he wanted to understand what was going on with my cycles and failed natural pregnancies.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Trust his gut feeling. Unexplained issues takes experience and best to place faith in the approach he would recommend. What I have observed is he is very consurvative in his approach and will not recommend intrusive procedure unless he has evaluated in detail.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Cornell has several patients, they effectively plan time slots as daily monitoring is required during treatment. For fertility treatment along with good doctor one needs great facility also which Cornell has.
Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
He initially did HSG as I had earlier self absorbed ectopic, my tubes were open but he suspected there was some other issue with tubes. He did only 1 IUI which failed and then moved to FET IVF cycle. My 2 natural FET with PGS tested embryos failed with him , both times he suspected my tubes were doing something. When I was under his care I naturally got pregnant multiple times he would monitor me closely and would see my HCG fluctuating without pregnancy in my tubes, he would send me to specialist also to check my tubes closely to see whether they would see something , unfortunately my HCG would start coming down on it's own but he always suspected something was wrong with tubes, one natural pregnancy the specialist saw very small pregnancy and Dr Reichman followed and set a tube removal surgery, I was not sure as earlier I has self absorbed ectopic but he booked personally and when he got to know that I was unsure he personally called me. I am glad I went with the operation as right after that my FET worked and I had an uneventful pregnancy and have a beautiful baby now. One thing I feel he could have done earlier was before my successful FET he did endometrial biopsy in office and found low grade infection called endometriosis which he just treated with antibiotics, may be he should have done that earlier.

He was always willing to answer my questions and give advice (even if I didn’t always listen) and he made me feel like he was just as invested in a successful outcome as I was...My cycle was always off which was a bit challenging in terms of timing but Dr. Reichman was super patient, even when I wasn’t. I did two retrievals, and my first one only yielded two viable embryos (after genetic testing), but after the first transfer didn’t work, [he] recommended another retrieval, which yielded more
She [Weill Cornell nurse] was always available, friendly and kind and went above and beyond in answering any of my questions...IVF was mostly covered by my insurance, except the genetic testing, which we had to pay for out of of pocket ($6-8k)...I really liked the Tribeca office at Weill Cornell. I chose it out of convenience because it was close to my old office, but it’s less crowded and a much more pleasant experience than the UES location, which can feel a bit like a factory. The Tribeca office also runs like clockwork so I was rarely waiting.
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Reichman was highly recommended to me by a friend and I had such a great experience that I’ve recommended him to other friends who are now patients of his. Infertility is the worst, and Dr. Reichman was one of the bright spots. He was always willing to answer my questions and give advice (even if I didn’t always listen) and he made me feel like he was just as invested in a successful outcome as I was.

Listen to his advice and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Getting treated for infertility can be a dehumanizing process, you’re getting poked and prodded all the time and it can be rather isolating. But Dr. Reichman was amazing, he was incredibly kind, thorough and compassionate, and I never felt like I was just another patient of his.
Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I went through three IUIs before I was diagnosed with unexplained fertility and pursued IVF. My cycle was always off which was a bit challenging in terms of timing but Dr. Reichman was super patient, even when I wasn’t. I did two retrievals, and my first one only yielded two viable embryos (after genetic testing), but after the first transfer didn’t work, Dr. Reichman recommended another retrieval, which yielded more embryos of better quality. I did a fresh transfer (against his advice) and got pregnant but had a miscarriage six weeks later. I was about to do another transfer in March when we went into quarantine and all elective procedures were halted. When things reopened, I ended up doing another transfer at the end of May, and I’m currently 35 weeks pregnant.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Christine )

Dr. Reichman felt strongly about a single embryo transfer in the beginning of the process. When we were not getting the results we wanted, he opted to transfer two embryos...He is honest, compassionate and was extremely good at guiding me and my husband through our infertility struggles...He took time out of his very busy schedule to answer all of my questions and always made sure I understood my options and helped me and my husband make the best decisions given our situation.

[Dr. Reichman] recommend transferring one embryo with genetic testing (under a certain age) and I absolutely agree with that approach...always remembered everything about what is going on in my current cycle, what we had previously discussed, and past history...He won’t push any treatment plan on you unless he really believes it is the best option.

Dr Reichman is the combo of someone who is extremely smart but also very personable. He was very thorough throughout my entire experience with him...I would HIGHLY recommend him if you are looking for a fertility specialist in NYC. No need to look anywhere else...Get on his schedule asap! My first appt did take a few months to get in as a new cycle.
[Weill Cornell Medical College] Strengths: Super Organized, clean, supportive and helpful. Overall, I had a wonderful experience here. Especially during the Covid crisis, the clinic had a strong response and went above and beyond to take the necessary cautions. I have felt very safe visiting the office. Weaknesses: can't think of any...My first appt did take a few months to get in as a new cycle.
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Reichman is the combo of someone who is extremely smart but also very personable. He was very thorough throughout my entire experience with him. When I first started seeing him as a new patient, he helped clear up and resolve a misdiagnosis I received from a different doctor (A previous technician and Dr told me I had a unicornuate uterus from an HSG scan that was done). Dr Reichman looked at the same HSG scan and didn't agree with their findings. He did another HSG scan himself, and my uterus was normal. That was a huge relief and it just goes to show the type of Dr he is. I always felt very comfortable and confident with his approach to the best fertility treatments and options/paths for me, and appreciated his input and advice. I would HIGHLY recommend him if you are looking for a fertility specialist in NYC. No need to look anywhere else.

Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I was considering IVF given my age and the desire to have 2 children, so went through the steps to potentially prepare for that. In the meantime, I followed the testing protocol Dr Reichman advised (blood work, tests, etc.) and continued to try naturally. I decided to try a few cycles of Letrozole before starting IVF, and on my 3rd cycle (Letrozole + trigger shot), I got pregnant.

He knows your name. He is very receptive to my my husband's questions. He understands my anatomy, never seems rushed to perform an exam, ensures my comfort. ... We never felt dismissed. ... We chose IVF, PGS, and embryo freezing for our family planning. The decision involved our goals, benefits, risks, and costs. Dr Reichman helped us navigate through the complexity and uncertainty with every step, including the weighty discussion regarding which options to pursue given our Age, health, and intrinsic risks. He will give you facts and figures, there are no guarantees, he is honest and straightforward.
You should know that your RE [at Weill Cornell] may not be the one performing your retrievals or embryo transfer. Your RE may not be doing all your US monitoring. Your RE will of course see all the results and determine your care. ... As a patient you should be organized, know the billing department, your fertility department in your insurance company, the specialty pharmacy, the prior authorization (don't want a delay pending authorization), keep track of medications, know the estimated delivery times, keep track of the billing etc. The clinic tries to give you an overview, but given our health care system, there is alot of moving parts! Also the hospital and the clinic can bill you for what appears to be the same procedure, but they are indeed 2 separate statements. Post Covid, no partners are allowed in.
How was your experience with David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Reichman is extremely intelligent, patient, understanding, and compassionate. He is interested in your health and reproductive goals. He evaluated us, gave us options, and based on our family planning goals decided on a plan. We chose IVF, PGS, and embryo freezing for our family planning. The decision involved our goals, benefits, risks, and costs. Dr Reichman helped us navigate through the complexity and uncertainty with every step, including the weighty discussion regarding which options to pursue given our Age, health, and intrinsic risks. He will give you facts and figures, there are no guarantees, he is honest and straightforward. I also appreciate that he encouraged us to think through about our decision so that we may avoid potentially excessive procedures. He is also very responsive but it may take 2 to 3 days to get a reply via email. He was kind enough to email us as soon as he knew of a reassuring 1st hcg test before the nurse got to call us. Thank you Dr Reichman!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
He is based on evidence and facts. The landscape of infertility and age can be a difficult one to face. He won't be abrasive about it but he won't sugar coat it either. He will be honest if he doesn't have all the answers. I believe he pursues and delivers excellence, science, evidence, and patient centered quality care.

Describe the protocols David Reichman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Both my cycles for egg retrieval used 325 mg Gonal F and 75 mg Menopur. The Gonal F was titrated based on my lab results but it never exceeded 325mg. My trigger was a combo of HCG and Lupron. My 1st cycle resulted in 19 eggs retrieved, 8 immature, 11 mature, 8 fertilized via ICSI, 5 embryos made it to day 6 for genetic testing, 2 were euploid. My 2nd cycle, I was given an estrogen patch to help "sync" my eggs to reduce the number of immature eggs. The results, 22 eggs retrieved, 9 immature, 13 mature, 10 fertilized with ICSI, 8 embryos made it to day 6, 3 euploids. As per Dr Reichman, each euploid embryo has a 60% to possibly 70% chance of a live birth.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Christine)
The nursing staff is excellent. Christine always returned my phone calls and addressed all my concerns. She's sympathetic and understanding. She was very patient and informative as I reviewed the medications, side effects, lab results, and the next plan.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
The Tribeca clinic is modern, clean, and less busy than the upper east side. One strength is that you can go to either clinic for routine bloodwork and US. Dr Reichman prefers to do his own ultrasounds. On weekends, the upper east side is the only clinic that maybe opened (this may have changed post Covid). You should know that your RE may not be the one performing your retrievals or embryo transfer. Your RE may not be doing all your US monitoring. Your RE will of course see all the results and determine your care. IVF is daunting, in terms of all the steps, procedures, medications, costs, and uncertainty. As a patient you should be organized, know the billing department, your fertility department in your insurance company, the specialty pharmacy, the prior authorization (don't want a delay pending authorization), keep track of medications, know the estimated delivery times, keep track of the billing etc. The clinic tries to give you an overview, but given our health care system, there is alot of moving parts! Also the hospital and the clinic can bill you for what appears to be the same procedure, but they are indeed 2 separate statements. Post Covid, no partners are allowed in.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Reichman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Our insurance covered some of the costs of the cycle. Genetic testing of the embryos was out of pocket pay for us, which became expensive but for us, necessary. We still had office visit co pays and medication co pays which added up. Lastly, they do balance billing so if the insurance did not cover the full cost, we are responsible for the difference.
Describe David Reichman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
He only transfers 1 euploid at a time. This is in sync with the recommendations of the ASRM, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine
