He [Dr. Glenn Schlattman] explained everything when doing ultrasounds and answered all questions I had, including when I could start my next round after my current pregnancy. My only complaint is that when it looked like one of my babies wasn't doing as well as the other, he said it could go either way when in his notes, he wrote "likely resolution." I think I would have preferred having been toldhe wasn't going to make it because I spent 2 weeks hoping he'd catch up with his sister, which he never did and was pretty gutted when I learned I'd miscarried.

How was your experience with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
As a doctor myself, I've always treated patients the way I want to be treated and I feel threat Dr. Schattman does the same. He explained everything when doing ultrasounds and answered all questions I had, including when I could start my next round after my current pregnancy. My only complaint is that when it looked like one of my babies wasn't doing as well as the other, he said it could go either way when in his notes, he wrote "likely resolution." I think I would have preferred having been toldhe wasn't going to make it because I spent 2 weeks hoping he'd catch up with his sister, which he never did and was pretty gutted when I learned I'd miscarried.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Don't be afraid to ask questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
He talked to me like a person. He answered all questions I had as he would a colleague, asked about my weekend plans and was flexible when it came to me getting testing done. And he made jokes. Most importantly, my husband liked him and he usually hates doctors.
Describe the protocols Glenn Schattman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Menopur/gonal F and cetrotide with an hcg and leuprolide dual trigger. The egg transfer was frozen (due to possible polyp recurrence) and the FET cycle was natural. Then only progesterone suppositories for 6 weeks.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They called every day and always returned voice mails.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Strength: it's a well-oiled machine. They have their protocols and follow them to a T. They also tell you in advance what problems they have with insurance so you can get everything pre-authorized before you start. Weaknesses: it can get busy at times so either be prepared to come early or to wait.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
It was pretty well oiled, I think.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Only had to pay for copay and embryo freezing but my insurance does have an 18k cap so the next cycle will be out of pocket
Describe Glenn Schattman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
He preferred only one or two embryos at a time. Cornell itself gives a sheet on how many embryos to transfer based on age and if you're doing fresh or frozen.

Dr. Schattman, while very busy, was always responsive when we reached out to him--and had a very concrete plan in place for me within 20 minutes of us meeting. He tailored my protocol to me, instead of just doing the same thing he does with every patient, which I appreciated... appointments go really quickly and Dr. Schattman will be in and out super quickly. He's not going to take 20 minutes to chit chat with you. if you have questions, make sure to have them ready to go when you see him.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
While Dr. Schattman has a ton of patients, he made a real effort to do my scans each morning, especially since we were from out of town. he answered all of my questions, even when rushed, and always called me back within 24 hours.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Shakira)
While I theoretically had a primary nurse, I spoke to someone different every other day. There was very little continuity in terms of my nurses, which was frustrating. If I left a message for a specific nurse, someone else would call me back. i felt like I had to stay on top of every detail b/c none of the nursing staff was consistent who I was dealing with.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Cornell is truly one of the best. They are efficient, they are friendly, they are professional and they get results. If you're looking for hand holding, this isn't the place to get it. The nursing staff is overwhelmed, so you have to be persistent. They don't use email, which can be really annoying if you have a quick question. I found the doctors to be cutting edge, thoughtful and very professional. I really appreciated that they don't take a one size fits all approach and tailored the protocol to me and my specific challenges. After seeing 2 other doctors at 2 other practices, Cornell was the only place where we ended up having success.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Monitoring appointments were surprisingly efficient--The earlier you arrive at Cornell, the faster you'll get through monitoring. Since we were cycling out of town, getting results from our DC clinic to NY seemed way more challenging than it should have been. But once we got to NY, everything ran pretty smoothly. I never had to wait more than 30 minutes or so in the morning, so getting to work on time was not an issue.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
We paid out of pocket for this cycle--as we had maxed out our insurance allowance of 25K. The medication was around 5K plus another 13K for the IVF cycle (including monitoring, hospital fees, ICSI, embryo freezing). For our frozen transfer, we spent another 4K for the actual monitoring, medication plus an ERA which Dr. Schattman wanted us to do before the transfer.
Describe Glenn Schattman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Dr. Schattman allowed us to decide whether to transfer 1 vs. 2 embryos--he gave us the pros and cons and I appreciate that he gave us all the information we needed to make the decision.

It is not a easy situation to go through but Dr Schattman's guidance made it as bearable as can be...really has a strong grasp of all different scenarios related to IUI/IVF. My husband would constantly ask questions regarding percentage chances of X and he would know the answer. He is very straightforward which I appreciated and he made us feel that he was there when we needed him - from being available for calls to making an effort to do our transfers when it wasnt his scheduled day in the hospital.

How was your experience with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Schattman was great and really has a strong grasp of all different scenarios related to IUI/IVF. My husband would constantly ask questions regarding percentage chances of X and he would know the answer. He is very straightforward which I appreciated and he made us feel that he was there when we needed him - from being available for calls to making an effort to do our transfers when it wasnt his scheduled day in the hospital. It is not a easy situation to go through but Dr Schattman's guidance made it as bearable as can be.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Come prepared with a list of questions and be ready to get straightforward answers
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Schattman was very sympathetic to the process. As we encountered bumps in the road he would always give the advice he would give as if it were his wife. Cornell can be tough to navigate given that it is such a large center for fertility patients but he told me that I could always reach out to him directly with any concerns/questions vs having to funnel it through one of the nurses.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
This may not be a fair review as they were undergoing some changes to nursing staff while I was there. The initial nurse that I was assigned to was great - super responsive and knew her stuff. While the changes were occurring, there were a pool of nurses that would be in touch that were a bit challenging as they didnt always know my history and I didnt feel they were as knowledgeable as the nurse I previously worked with. I shared my concerns with Dr. Schattman and he had me funnel most of my questions to him due to this.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
The clinic is definitely packed and can sometimes be challenging but I do believe there is a reason that all of these people are there. I researched a few other clinics before choosing Cornell as it felt clean, the people that worked there were nice and they knew what they were doing. I would recommend getting there as early as possible to beat the rush - otherwise you will end up sitting there for awhile!

How was your experience with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I saw Dr. Schattman based on a friend's recommendation. I had had a bad experience with a previous clinic in that I never was able to get a clear answer about what my tests indicated about my prognosis, unfortunately trusting that they had my best interest in mind. I had a consultation with Dr. Schattman, who looked over my medical records, ordered bloodwork and did an HSG the same week. He clearly and promptly explained the results and his advie about how to proceed with achieving pregnancy. I appreciated how quick and clear he was. In less than a week I had all the information I needed to make an informed decision that put my mind at ease, unlike the previous clinic that strung me along (taking thousands of dollars for worthless procedures). Dr. Schattman will have your best interest in mind.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Make sure you ask questions. Based on my experience, he gets right to the point and doesn't oversaturate you with info, so if you are curious about something you have to ask on your own.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Schattman was very professional. He got to the point and was transparent, which I greatly appreciated.

He was conscientious about my comfort during procedures.
Describe the protocols Glenn Schattman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I only had bloodwork and an HSG. IVF was recommended but I chose not to proceed.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were professional and returned calls in a timely manner.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
I liked the clinic and waiting area. It was clean and calm. I did not have any monitoring done so I cannot speak to what that experience is like. Everyone was efficient and I felt they were competent, which put me at ease.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I paid out of pocket for all expenses. $750 for consulation and ultrasound. $1000 for HSG. Awaiting a bill for bloodwork but expect it to be about $500.

How was your experience with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
We're still in treatment so can't really fully answer til done. Despite 4 miscarriages in one year we've not considered switching doctors so that should say something that we still trust him. He seems like a top doctor, an expert - and a human being - which is the ideal combination in this profession I think. He won't do unnecessary interventions so if he says x is worth the $ it probably is and if not he'll tell you.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Don't expect to see him every time prepare to see and talk to mostly staff it's just how that clinic works. If at any point you're not clear on something just call the nurse and tell them. Sometimes they assume you understand when you don't just have to speak up.

Describe the protocols Glenn Schattman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
We used a combo of follistim, menopur - then added ganirelix for a few days and triggered with a combo of hcg and Lupron (one night only). He did the retrieval himself which produced 19 eggs (in a 40 year old!) and 6 usable day 5 blasts. Only thing I feel they could have better prepared me for was the bloat getting worse post retrieval otherwise quite thorough. Also did one natural drug free frozen transfer since then- transferred one embryo which worked but ended in an 8 week miscarriage. I was grateful they were willing to do a drug free transfer and totally natural. Much easier.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Hannah)
The nurses are great you can call them anytime with any questions. Hannah talked to me many times when I had bad news and patiently answered a million questions.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Strengths: excellent care, patient needs first- felt like decisions and recommendations were based on what was best for me medically and not what would line their pockets or skew their results as other clinics might. Other strength is I love that all blood test results are same day and I never waited too long there. Cons: honestly biggest con is cost. It's a fortune.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
All monitoring is 630-830 am and I was told the afternoon before whether to come in next day so that's a pain schedule wise but they tell you that in advance. But you're not waiting long. It can feel impersonal because it's a well oiled machine with so many women but they manage it very professionally
Describe the costs associated with your care under Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Insane. $20k for one round of ivf when you add up cost for ivf, icsi, sounding, and meds. $5k for each natural frozen cycle. Pgs was over $6k so we declined.
Describe Glenn Schattman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
He much prefers eSET unless good reason for more- which I agree with. That said he's not one size fits all and will give you a reco with rationale rooted in your personal situation which I like.

Describe the protocols Glenn Schattman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
IVF- We used estrogen priming, followed by Menopur 150, Follistim 300 + ganirelix added during the cycle. With my diagnosis being diminished ovarian reserve, we only got 5 eggs of which all were mature but only 4 fertilized (via ICSI). 2 were implanted on day 3, none made it to freeze. We ultimately had a positive pregnancy test with 1 yolk sac, but unfortunately had a miscarriage at 7 weeks. Our next cycle is in the works and we are not sure of the protocol yet.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Hannah)
Hannah was great. She called at the same time every day with results. Just like with Dr. Schattman, ask questions- because the phone calls are quick and before you know it you are off the phone and forgot to ask!

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I might not recommend Dr. Schattman to someone that needs a lot of emotional support and hand holding throughout the process. Sometimes the odds are not great and he does not shy away from the truth and explains the myriad ways things can go wrong.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Schattman is very direct and takes time to explain the various procedures, treatments, etc. That said, monitoring hours are not long and he has many patients so the appointments are kept brief and to the point. When we suffered our miscarriage, however, he was delicate and took extra time with us to discuss next steps. He also wanted to make sure he was present for all procedures pertaining to the miscarriage which made us feel like he really took ownership of the process.
Describe the protocols Glenn Schattman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
We first did a priming cycle using estrogen patches (to repress activity in the hopes that it would help stimulate for the following month). On day 2 of the following cycle I began IVF injections. For 4 days I took 150IU Menopur and150IU Gonal F. On the 5th day we added a Ganirelix injection (to make sure one egg did not become overly dominant and cause ovulation) and that continued through the 9th day. On the 10th day of injections (Day 11 of my cycle) I took 40 units of Lupron and 5,000 units of HCG (to ensure ovulation). The egg retrieval took place on day 13. 21 eggs were collected, 15 of those were mature and all 15 were successfully fertilized with ICSI (ICSI aids in the fertilization process and often produces better results than just laying the sperm on the eggs). We then waited 5 days to see how many embryos survived so we could send them in for PGS testing. It is necessary to wait until the embryos grow to a certain amount of cells so they can be biopsied. We then waited 2 weeks for the PGS results (1 out of 12 embryos can back unaffected with out genetic issue). On my next cycle Dr. Schattman did a natural frozen embryo transfer, he explained that in the absence of any other fertility issues natural transfers tend to have the best odds. I had a positive pregnancy test 6 days after my transfer which resulted in one live birth of a healthy baby boy. My egg retri
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Hannah Murtaugh)
Hannah was amazing. She took so much time to explain the medication schedule and protocols. She also sat down with me and helped me make a detailed calendar of what would happen and when (these were obviously approximations but it was so nice to have some idea of the schedule ahead of time). This is a very overwhelming process the first time and she absolutely made it more manageable.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Weill Cornell is a very busy place which can be both good and bad. I found walking in and seeing at least 50 other women waiting for monitoring in the morning almost comforting, makes you feel like you are not alone in what can be a very lonely process. That said, you can wait a long time for blood work and monitoring if you do not get there early, my advice would be to get there right away. I found the receptionists to mostly be friendly and helpful, no major complaints.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Monitoring at Cornell is very busy. If you get there right when it opens you can usually be in and out in 20 minutes. If you get there towards the end you can wait for upwards of an hour. That said, they are upfront about this and encourage people to get there early. Once you are seen everything runs smoothly.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
IVF with ICSI, PGS testing and the frozen embryo transfer totaled about $35,000.

Dr Schattman always made it a point to call with big results and patiently walked through information and asked if I had any questions. I felt taken care of and that someone was thinking ahead about my cycle...He first started with an ultrasound and found that I had many follicles. He knew that it would probably be likely we would get a sufficient amount of eggs during retrieval. He also knew I had become pregnant naturally 3 times in the previous year. So he prescribed the lowest dosage of injectables for my protocol and a natural transfer, which was successful, I am now 15 weeks pregnant...

How was your experience with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I mentioned in a previous response. I felt like Dr Schattman knew right from the start what protocol I should have, and he was always in control of what is next. He set my mind at ease after 3 miscarriages and having zero control over my care.

Make sure you use your time with him wisely, have your questions prepared.

Although there were always many many patients in the waiting room at Cornell every time I went there, I felt like they were always doing their best to be successful. Dr Schattman always made it a point to call with big results and patiently walked through information and asked if I had any questions. I felt taken care of and that someone was thinking ahead about my cycle.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Hannah)
Some weeks I spoke with Hannah every day. She was amazing and would call daily at the same time with my blood or ultrasound results or drug instructions. I felt comfortable with Hannah and felt like she cared about me.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Cornell is an amazing clinic. I have heard they "take everybody" - and I think that's why they are very good at what they do, because they take the hardest cases. Their team was very supportive and organized. The see A LOT of patients so that would be the only thing that can be intimidating to someone. But I always felt comfortable there.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Most of our costs were covered by insurance. We paid an initial visit cost of $40 and $5,000 for PGS.

After the miscarriage (result of IUI #3), [Dr Schattman] was both compassionate and matter of fact. He personally did the IUI for attempt #5, and that is the one that resulted in our daughter. We had been working with him for a year before we got to IUI #5 and he understood our disappointment that it took so long. He also explained the science (especially what we saw in the sonograms which I greatly appreciated!)

How was your experience with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
See "why I think he treated us like humans". He is kind without being patronizing. He specializes in helping women post-cancer and genuinely seems to appreciate that the tock is clicking and we want results fast, but balances that with the idea of starting with the least invasive (so, least expensive and least risky) treatment first. He helped us set limits upfront. Do we want 6 rounds of IUI before starting hormones? How comfortable are we with multiples? Etc. He also seems really good at timing the treatments to the specific 18 (?)-hour window when it's most likely to work.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Do your research on treatment types first then bring your ideas and questions to him - he's brilliant and it's good to have some background first. We read articles on "it's conceivable now" website and talked with another lesbIn couple first (who wished they had chosen Cornell Weill instead of Columbia, by the way)!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. S. Talks with us about our broader lives... Podcasts we like, ski trips, our marital status (this changed a lot as we worked with Dr. both pre- and post-DOMA's overturning, so we had lots of questions as a somewhat-recognized-married-couple. After the miscarriage (result of IUI #3), Dr. S. was both compassionate and matter of fact. He personally did the IUI for attempt #5, and that is the one that resulted in our daughter. We had been working with him for a year before we got to IUI #5 and he understood our disappointment that it took so long. He also explained the science (especially what we saw in the sonograms which I greatly appreciated!)
Describe the protocols Glenn Schattman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Some surgery to remove fibroids. Then We used IUI with donor sperm. 3 tries to get pregnant over the course of 6 months (timing is tricky!!). Miscarriage at 12 weeks. Then 3 months of not trying while we regrouped. Then 2 rounds of IUI again and that 5th time worked!
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were fine. Gave us privacy as a couple without us having to ask for it. Did the bloodwork very efficiently. Remembered us (big deal in a huge clinic like this!)
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Una!!!! Maybe her role is "care coordinator," or administrator. She has forms that tell us expected costs (even for procedures we're not currently considering) and how to navigate with insurance companies. She is thoughtful about scheduling, so we get as much as possible out of each visit. And she returns phone calls promptly. She is awesome.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
IUI Is $690 per cycle (including sperm wash) excluding sperm, sperm storage, labs, ultrasound and monitoring. Not sure about other surgeries (to remove fibroids) /tests/consultations/ labs/ meds. We received a fee schedule for the procedures, but I wish we knew what the blood work, sonograms and monitoring cost. Most likely insurance will pay $0 but it's been a nightmare trying to get Cigna then Aetna and now Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield to confirm/deny what is even covered let alone the cost to us. Una helps us through all of this.

How was your experience with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I felt like Dr. Schattman always had my best interest at heart. He listened to me and understood what we were trying to achieve and came up with the best course of action to achieve it. He was patient and kind and very prompt with his responses. I do wish that he spoke in more laymans terms as it was sometimes hard to follow what he was saying. Sometimes I would need to call back and have him explain what he said again but he always did so. He tried to be there for most of my appointments and did end up doing my second retrieval. We felt more confident having him do it than another doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Ask about all your options and try to fully understand them. As clearly as you can, explain your objective to him and try to give suggestions of what you'd like to do. He will try to accommodate you as long as he agrees that it could work. I wanted to be very proactive and move quickly and had suggestions of how I thought we could do that -- he listened to me and then formulated a plan of how we could accomplish what i wanted.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Schattman was very involved in my case from the get-go. He took ample time to sit and explain thing to me and my husband. He was readily available whenever we had questions. My first retrieval was not as successful as we or he wanted it to be and he was very honest about that. He was candid in saying that he was disappointed and thought we could do better with a stronger protocol. I appreciated that he didn't sugarcoat or tell me that this was the best we could do. We moved forward with another retrieval and he switched the protocol and we nearly doubled the amount of eggs we were able to retrieve and quadrupled the amount of embryos we were able to create.

I think Dr. Schattman is a good doctor. He is straight forward, he moves fast and it can be hard to keep up. Be prepared with your questions. I believe Dr. Schattman cares about his patients and tries for the best possible outcomes. Overall, good doctor though he can be hard to reach. He does not email so getting him on the phone is a challenge...I was a slow responder to IVF. I produced 11 eggs, 9 of which fertilized but was on drugs for 15-16 days. The embryo quality was poor. I transferred 2 day 3 embryos and the rest didn't make it to blast stage.

How was your experience with Glenn Schattman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Schattman is very knowledgeable and cares about his patients. You can see him for morning monitoring on specific days if you go to the UES location. Appointments are generally quick and there isn't much time for chit chat - so come prepared with your questions. I am still a patient of Dr. Schattman's and am hoping my next course of treatment is successful.

Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
You do feel like a number in this practice but that did not bother me. I felt they were efficient and organized and I did not need my hand held. One thing I did not love is that even if you are with a specific dr if he is not on call when it is time for a retrieval or transfer another dr in the practice will do it. I had a dr I had never met do my transfer which was alittle unsettling to me.
