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

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

Dr. Stewart and the full team go out of their way to approach each patient with kindness and compassion while educating you on exactly what is happening, next steps and possible outcomes. I never felt rushed for time at appointments...Not only is he an amazing compassionate doctor but a great human who deeply cares about his work, makes every patient feel like they're the most important and leads a great team of nurses and staff who are just as lovely to work with...
They [nurses at Weill Cornell Medical College] were completely accessible to me, positive and felt like my own personal cheerleaders. I looked forward to receiving their calls after my monitoring appointments and asked them so many questions but never felt rushed or that I was an inconvenience. When I started the egg retrieval process, I was overwhelmed by the meds and dosing the first day but they took so much extra time to walk me through everything multiple times and really calmed my nerves...
How was your experience with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
I truly cannot articulate how appreciative I am to have been in Dr. Stewart's care. Not only is he an amazing compassionate doctor but a great human who deeply cares about his work, makes every patient feel like they're the most important and leads a great team of nurses and staff who are just as lovely to work with. I never felt like just another patient or doubted that he wanted the same outcome for me and my husband as much as I did. I always felt heard by Dr. Stewart and feel really lucky to have been able to see him. I just wish he could be my OB for the remainder of my pregnancy! I
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
You will learn so much throughout this process - Dr. Stewart is super helpful in educating and going slow with his patients to ensure they understand. I asked so many questions and never felt rushed or embarrassed about what I didn't know about my own anatomy.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Molly & Annie)
I couldn't be more thankful for the attentive care of both Molly & Annie throughout my months of treatment with Dr. Stewart. They were completely accessible to me, positive and felt like my own personal cheerleaders. I looked forward to receiving their calls after my monitoring appointments and asked them so many questions but never felt rushed or that I was an inconvenience.

Having them as a support throughout this process made me feel like I was in the best hands possible and I am truly grateful.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
I loved the Brooklyn location of the clinic, which I went to M-F. On weekends I was able to go to the UES location or out in the Hamptons. I felt it was pretty easy to get an appointment to fit with my full time work schedule and busy life schedule on weekends. The Brooklyn & Hamptons locations were both newer, smaller and super efficient and UES is a bit larger with a higher volume of patients / offices / doctors.

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

A weakness is the billing process, which I assume is like this everywhere - the preauthorization process took time and was delayed.

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

How was your experience with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Before beginning treatment with Dr. Stewart, I had consultations with other providers. From my first contact with Dr. Stewart, I had complete confidence that he understood my family building goals and also my areas of concern specific to my medical situation. He was methodical and thorough in assessing my situation, and explained each result and prognosis in an accessible way. He presented me with a recommendation that factored in my concerns and was honest about the outcomes that I could realistically expect. With each step of the process, I knew that I could rely on the fact that Dr. Stewart was taking time to keep updated on my progress. Dr. Stewart was optimistic and encouraging, and also provided me the information that I needed to be able to make informed decisions about my treatment plan. Dr. Stewart is kind, personable and effectively instilled confidence. I have left each interaction with Dr. Stewart feeling well cared for and knowing that he has my best interests at the forefront of all recommendations that he makes. My only regret is that I'm not able to continue care with Dr. Stewart through my pregnancy!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
My advice for prospective patients is to be open and communicative with Dr. Stewart regarding your goals and concerns. He is non-judgemental and treats his patients with respect.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Stewart clearly cares so much about all of his patients. His bedside manner and communication skills are excellent, and he took the time to understand my priorities and goals and offered treatments that had taken these into consideration. He clearly explained the pros and cons and what I should expect along the way. Dr. Stewart has a kind and easy going disposition, and made me feel like he was truly following along with my treatment progress and making needed adjustments along the way. He arrived to each appointment updated on my chart and was able to quickly and effectively answer any questions I had. Even though his practice is busy, I never felt rushed and left my appointment confident that he had paid full attention to my case. His team (from front desk staff to nursing staff) were always kind, welcoming and helpful.
Describe the protocols Joshua Stewart used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
I went to Dr. Stewart for help conceiving after years of ovarian suppression following a breast cancer diagnosis. Dr. Stewart's treatment protocol closely monitored my estrogen levels so as to mitigate the risks of IVF that may have been tied to my cancer history. He also took the time to consult with my oncologist before devising his treatment plan. I was able to retrieve more eggs than Dr. Stewart had initially predicted, and was also able to freeze more normal embryos than had been anticipated. Dr. Stewart was also supportive of my decision to have weekly acupuncture treatments throughout my retrieval and transfer cycles.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Molly Spilka, NP)
My primary point of contact was with Molly Spilka. With each phone call to updated me on my treatment protocol, Molly provided clear instructions and made sure to include explanations for any medication changes that were being recommended. Molly was generous with her time when I asked her to explain different medications, what was happening with my body and what I could expect in terms of next steps as the process moved forward. Any questions or concerns that I raised were responded to promptly either by return phone call or email, and Molly helped me to make sure that I had the correct medication supply and worked to trouble shoot any problems with this. There were a few times that I spoke to other nurses or to the PA Celia Chen. Each provider was informative and clear. They validated any concerns that I had and offered me helpful advice. Like Dr. Stewart, the nursing team was always kind, courteous and patient, and were responsive to patient questions and needs.
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
While the main clinic location located at Weil Cornell on the Upper East Side can feel a bit impersonal and like a fertility factory given the high volume of patients being seen at any given time, the Brooklyn clinic location had the complete opposite feel! Apart from my procedures and a few monitoring appointments, all of my care was provided at the Brooklyn location. This clinic site is clean, quiet and inviting. The front desk staff is warm, friendly and efficient. Appointment times were honored and wait times were short. I had both egg retrieval and embryo transfer at the hospital, and the process was efficient and ran smoothly for each procedure. The nursing team post egg retrieval were excellent, and made sure to help me manage my symptoms before discharge. Each provider was attentive and professional.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College.
The egg retrieval costs were around 11K and the embryo transfer fees were around 5K. Some of my testing and lab work was covered by insurance, and Dr. Stewarts office also helped me to apply for a LiveStrong fertility grant.
Describe Joshua Stewart's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Dr. Stewart recommended that I transfer one embryo, and I felt well informed of his rationale for this.

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

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

ADORE Dr Stewart. The best doctor I have had in my entire life. Great at managing expectations and providing context while maintaining compassionate, trustworthy bedside manner. Honestly can’t praise him enough. I had a terrible prior experience with another facility and he turned my fertility game entirely around.

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

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

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

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

My partner had surgery for varicocele in March and we conceived naturally in May...he has his opinions and shares them freely but I always felt that he understood that I wanted to take an approach with as little intervention as possible.

How was your experience with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Stewart listened to me and understood that I was eager but that I wanted to explore options before IVF. He ensured that we did not rush into treatments without all the data and information to make informed decisions. He went above and beyond, calling to give me results when he could, meeting us in the office for a consult after hours, staying at the hospital so he could do an insemination for me. He really believes in a very high standard of care, but has a strong understanding of the science behind every decision.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Stewart really sees his patients, he has his opinions and shares them freely but I always felt that he understood that I wanted to take an approach with as little intervention as possible. He helped me to understand each option and to take my time and not rush. He often asked how I was feeling or how I was doing. The staff in his office are kind and got to know me. The Brooklyn office is great because it feels like a small intimate clinic but with the power of a great research institute and labs behind it.
Describe the protocols Joshua Stewart used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
1 cycle unmedicated IUI with monitoring. I had one mature follicle 2 cycles of IUI with clomid (don't remember the dosage) with monitoring and trigger shot. Both cycles I had 2 mature follicles I was going to try to fit in an IVF cycle prior but we were waiting on some male fertility test results when I was due to start and Dr. Stewart encouraged me to wait until we had all of the information. My partner had surgery for varicocele in March and we conceived naturally in May
Describe your experience with Weill Cornell Medical College.
The Brooklyn location of Cornell is wonderful. It has the feeling of a small clinic, not a baby farm, the staff is very friendly and compassionate, and it has the power of the hospital behind it. The waiting room is always quiet and clean. I was always seen very quickly and the team was efficient when that was called for.

He [Dr. Joshua Stewart] takes the time to listen completely and thoroughly explains every aspect of care and treatment. He also values patients opinions and comments about their care...the best doctor I have ever worked with. He is very thorough, compassionate, and has a fantastic bedside manner. It was also great that he addresses every concern on the first visit, from the consultation to the full evaluation. You leave his office knowing exactly what is going on and what the plan is to proceed. I would 100% recommended him to anyone I know and have in fact already done so to several people.
All of Dr. Stewart’s staff [at Weill Cornell Medical College] are extremely friendly and helpful. My questions were always answered promptly...The clinic is very bright and welcoming from the moment you walk in the door. The reception staff greet you quickly and the wait is never long. Appointments are also easily scheduled at the front desk. It is truly a good experience from start to finish...As someone with PCOS who does not ovulate regularly, Dr. Stewart came up with a quick and easy plan that fit my needs and wants perfectly. Luckily for us, getting pregnant was as easy as some synthroid and metformin.

Dr. Stewart always took the time to answer all of our questions and would give us a game plan that we could understand and would put our minds at ease that there were other options available to us despite our having had two failed transfers prior to switching to him...When things were not going well or it was bad news, Dr. Stewart would always personally call and thoroughly explain things, as well as provide us with additional options so we would not lose hope. Dr. Stewart and his staff make you feel like they are on your journey with you. Could not recommend more.
Molly, [nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College] called every day with the test results and was always very caring and would answer any questions I had, sometimes spending more than ten-fifteen minutes on the phone with me to explain things...staff's caring and attentive nature is the clinic's greatest strength...

How was your experience with Joshua Stewart at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Stewart was phenomenal. My husband and I switched to Dr. Stewart after having a terrible experience at another clinic where the doctor was unresponsive and uninvolved in our treatment.

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