Dr. Kligman is very knowledgeable. When in person, he communicates decently and is patient when answering questions. However, the communication and decisions don't seem to be two-way. After my first failed IUI, I asked to start IVF next given my age and for family planning purposes. However, he dismissed my request and made me do another IUI which failed again, meaning a few months slipped by before I started my first IVF cycle.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Kligman is a better communicator in person. If possible, try to see him vs talking to him on the phone.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
During my 3 cycles with Dr. Kligman, I only saw him a handful of times. Cornell treats a high volume of patients and as such, during monitoring, I was seen by various nurses, residents, and doctors.
Describe the protocols Isaac Kligman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Egg freezing: Antagonist protocol IUI #1: Natural IUI #2: With Clomid IVF #1: Antagonist protocol IVF #2: Antagonist protocol
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I had very little interaction with my primary nurse. I saw her once at the start of each cycle to go over medications.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Cornell has a great reputation. I've spoken with doctors and embryologists at other clinics who speak highly of Cornell and its labs. But, Cornell also has a high patient volume. That means that it seems like a zoo during morning monitoring, and you will rarely see the same nurse/doctor twice. Getting personal attention is very difficult.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
It's a zoo, but it is well run.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I had to pay out of pocket for IVF cycles, given I had my eggs frozen a few years before. My insurance company would not cover IVF due to my frozen eggs, and Dr. Kligman recommended doing a fresh IVF cycle before using the frozen eggs.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Do not expect to have your hand held. Have a support system outside of Cornell and take comfort that you are being treated at one of the best clinics. When you have an appointment with Kligman have your questions ready and make the most of each visit. I never felt rushed during our appointments.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Cornell is a large facility. You will not see your doctor at morning monitoring. The nurses are your first point of contact and very responsive. When I had an appointment with Dr. Kligman he was always personable and professional. Although I would not expect any doctor at Cornell to be a hand holder.
Describe the protocols Isaac Kligman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Crystal, Susan and Phyllis )
The Cornell nursing staff was great. They are quick to return your calls and answer your questions thoroughly.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Cornell is a well oiled machine. Monitoring is from 6:30-8:30am. I usually arrived around 6am as it's first come first serve. By 6:15 there are several women waiting. They run the clinic efficiently but still bring your patience.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
I arrive 30 minutes before monitoring opened. There was always a line but arriving early I was usually finished within 30 minutes of clinic opening.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
ET- $10k-$15k, meds $3k and ET-$4k
Describe Isaac Kligman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.

How was your experience with Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Kligman has been my doctor since 2013 at which time we did our first IVF cycle and I became pregnant with our first child. I resumed seeing him in 2016 and we are working on number two. Dr. Kligman is the ultimate professional. He is smart, well-versed, courteous and caring. He is always responsive to my concerns and questions and provides straightforward and honest answers (he is not one to sugar coat). In between cycles, I had a natural pregnancy that ended in miscarriage. He insisted on caring for me the whole way through, was completely supportive through a difficult time and even insisted on doing my D&C himself so that he could be comfortable that I would not have any delays when I was ready to try again. He makes recommendations, and feels strongly about them, but will also let you give input on your preferred course of treatment and supports alternative courses of action. We are having a tough time with number two and this is when your care gets put to the test but thus far I have not lost any confidence in him as my doctor. I think Cornell as a practice can be somewhat rigid in approach and I see this from time to time in the way Kligman practices but ultimately he won't stick with something that isn't working. I always feel in good hands.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
You have to do some self-education and be prepared to ask questions and prompt him as he won't always be as effusive as you might want him to be. He is 100% willing to spend all the time in the world with you discussing treatment and options but you should come prepared with a list of questions and concerns.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Cornell has a reputation for being a "factory-like" clinic, and I echo the sentiment in regards to monitoring, nursing staff, etc. There are improvements to be made, for sure, but on the whole it is a well run clinic. However, I have never felt like Dr. Kligman was not fully invested in my success and cared personally about my care. If we saw one another on the street, he would recognize me, call me by name and stop for a chat.
Describe the protocols Isaac Kligman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
On our initial round of IVF, I was 32 and had no identified issues - our issue was male infertility - so was a fairly straightforward situation as these things go. We used ICSI and ended up with 8 day 5 blasts - we put one in and we have our daughter and froze the remaining 7. They were not PGS tested as that was fairly new at the time. All of my FETs are being done on a medicated cycle using Lupron, estrogen and progesterone. We have opted for a single embryo transfer in each case (he has suggested we move to two, which we are considering).
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Kristin, Crystal, Susan)
I have had VERY mixed experiences with the nursing team. The attitude, level of organization and information given vary drastically from nurse to nurse. I find that most of them are not very compassionate, frankly - I'm ok with that as I understand they have a difficult job but every once in a while it would feel nice to have a personal connection. I have never been in a situation where I have not timely received instructions or have been given incorrect instructions, however - they are on the whole, organized when it comes to following protocols.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Cornell is a well respected clinic where the doctors confer on approach and they also have excellent support services (genetics, billing, etc.). It lacks a personal touch and that waiting room in the morning for monitoring is about the worst place on this Earth but some of it comes with the territory. It's important to work to establish a relationship with your doctor and his assistant and focus on that and otherwise ensure to advocate for what you need as they are responsive.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
The waiting is the worst, and some days it can be up to an hour. This is the number one thing I would change about the experience and wish it could feel less like a cattle call.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Dr. Kligman accepts some insurance and we had coverage for many of our treatments but paid out of pocket for fertility medication and some hospital charges.
Describe Isaac Kligman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
It has been my experience that Dr. Kligman will recommend eSET in all cases other than when it is not the patient's desire or when eSET is not producing results. He will always go over the statistics and recommendations with us pre-transfer to help us make an informed choice.

Dr. Kligman was a nice man, who initially appeared to be great. However he spent less than 10 mins face to face time with me to discuss my results and diagnosis. He was reluctant to elaborate on reasons or causes for my diagnosis. When I asked questions (I am from a medical background); he was flippant, a little arrogant about the answers. He prescribed too low a dose of the treatment drug decided on.... It was impossible to contact him-having to leave a voicemail for his administrators, who would take 24hours to call you back. He never called me back-he always had a nurse (who is unaware of your medical history) call you back.

How was your experience with Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Kligman was a nice man, who initially appeared to be great. However he spent less than 10 mins face to face time with me to discuss my results and diagnosis. He was reluctant to elaborate on reasons or causes for my diagnosis. When I asked questions (I am from a medical background); he was flippant, a little arrogant about the answers. He prescribed too low a dose of the treatment drug decided on. His office contacted me to congratulate me on pregnancy when it was clear by the numbers and my history of a previous chemical pregnancy that I was having another chemical pregnancy. It was impossible to contact him-having to leave a voicemail for his administrators, who would take 24hours to call you back. He never called me back-he always had a nurse (who is unaware of your medical history) call you back. This clinic is a conveyor belt. The waiting room is not discrete with nurses coming out and just shouting your name out so that the other 100 people in the room can hear it.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Less than 5 mins of consolation time face to face He was reluctant to elaborate on the research or literature behind some of the results of my tests
Describe the protocols Isaac Kligman used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I was diagnosed with low progesterone. I was prescribed a low dose of progesterone. On my first cycle taking the progesterone I became pregnant. I called his office to arrange a good test. They called me back the next day. After I did the blood (3 days after initial positive result), they congratulated me on being pregnant but told me that my progesterone was low and that I should have been on a higher dose and to start taking more. I already knew it was too late at this point. I told the nurse I thought the HCG levels were too low and she told me to wait another 5 days. I bled 4 days later-without any contact from Dr. Kligmann at any stage of the process. I was also taking a prescription medication at the time related to an autoimmune disorder that he assured me was have to use during the trying to convince period. I have since found out that this drug has been shown (by a number of publications in reputable journals using large study groups) that this medication increases your risk of spontaneous miscarriage significantly. I was never made aware of this by Dr. Kligmann.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I barely remember them; it was always a different person. They would just prep me for ultrasound and not say anything. They shouted your name in the waiting room and when it came to taking bloods you were passed onto another nurse who took the bloods.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
Strengths; academic institute with apparently good success rates-active research programs Weaknesses; waiting room etiquette is outrageous. It is like a cattle mart of women and the nurses come out and shout your name. When you go inside it is in and out as fast as possible. There is no humanized aspect to their approach whatsoever.

How was your experience with Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Unethical is the only way I can describe this doctor. There was zero communication. He should have told me the chances I had of conceiving with the one terrible embryo I had - Day 3, 5-cell, very fragmented. I didn't know any better at the time. And since I hadn't heard from the doctor, thought that I could and should trust he knew what he was doing. But the transfer should have been canceled. There was never any medication adjustment at all during the stimulation period - I was given the strongest, maximum dosage and suffered with it. Terrible, uncaring doctor. He should not be practising at a prestigious institution like Weil Cornell.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Don't do it. Wait however long it takes to get an appointment with another doctor. One or two months longer will not hurt you in the end.

Dr. Kligman's nurses (whoever was on staff September 2013) were absolutely amazing. These ladies are the ONLY reason I was able to even figure out what was going on. They were compassionate, lovely people who really cared about making sure I was on the right track. I am so grateful for the care I received from them.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
The clinic is fine. Some would say 'factory-like' which I suppose is true but it's clean and well-run so that didn't bother me. The big thing to know is that monitoring is NOT done by your doctor unless he/she is working that day. The worse thing is that monitoring is not even done by Attendings until you're at least one week into your stims.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Mixed bag. Some doctors were great. And a few (like Kligman) just literally monitored you like a body with a uterus.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College.
$10K per cycle. Does not include the cost of medication which was made clear. Also didn't include the cost of anesthesia which was completely hidden as well as the use of another room in NYP hospital for which there was an exorbitant fee, also hidden.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Isaac Kligman at Weill Cornell Medical College?
The clinic is definitely set up to process many patients through procedures like IVF and egg donation. This was fine for me, since that is what I was seeking, but if you are in an exploratory phase or seeking more of a diagnostic opinion, I am not sure if this would be the place for that. However - I was not seeking that, so I don't know for sure.

If you're doing donor eggs, I would look elsewhere.

Cornell was very much like a bus station, you were a number and there was no specificity to the treatment. When we had trouble with the donor egg process working, there was no adjusting or figuring out what should be done differently, it was just applying their methods over and over again.

More than $20,000 per donor egg cycle.
