He [Dr. Owen Davis] always takes time to quietly explain what he wants to do and what the expected outcome is. He returns phone calls and I never felt rushed or pressured on the phone or in person. He was calming when I was scared that nothing was going to work...He is not overly warm and is very matter of fact in his approach but he is not cold and uncaring either. His confidence and calm demeanor and the gentleness in exams was exactly what I needed from the first consultation appointment to appointments when it was clear that a pregnancy was probably going fail, to happy pregnancy appointments.
For two cycles and two transfers (so far) it has cost about $40,000 [at Weill Cornell Medical College]...Mornings are very busy and crowded but you generally don’t wait that long. They aren’t overly strict about arriving a little late in the morning and manage to fit you in. You see whichever doctor is “on call” that day when they are monitoring you before an egg retrieval or embryo transfer...Phone calls were always returned quickly when I had questions.

It is somewhat of a cattle call with absolutely no anonymity. Everyone waits together in a large waiting area and they call your name. I found it comforting to see so many other women and couples there.

I think that he's [Dr. Owen Davis] amazing - caring, smart, empathic, knowledgable and very trustworthy. I think the facility has become a bit of a factory and they sometimes forget to tell you things [the office I used for monitoring moved between cycles 2 and 3 and I went to the wrong place]... Dr Davis has amazing and sensitive bedside manner. His nurses were sometimes not the same way but he was very responsive when I talked to him about it.
Its [Weill Cornell[ a machine. That has positives and negatives. The monitoring staff is generally lovely. Medically it’s great. I think the difference between my first round and the last is that it seems less coordinated between the nurses. The strength is the doctors' level of expertise....They're [nursing staff[] missing a sensitivity chip. No one has IVF because its been easy for them. I have had 3 miscarriages and a baby die at 3 days old. I don't need to be treated with kid gloves, but they could be sensitive when delivering bad news and also not deliver inaccurate assessments on a pregnancy.

Dr Davis is very knowledgeable and professional. He will also listen to your needs and concerns and is willing to change the plan per your request. He is kind and genuinely cares about the patient. He could quote various research result to support his ideas. He will always try different thing to see if it works...He talks fast and sometimes you could miss the point...We tried estrogen priming, low dose stimulation, microdose flare. Used Gonal F, menupour, Cetrotide and HCG. For low dose IVF used clomid. Most times 3 day fresh transfer.
The cost [at Weill Cornell Medical College] is higher compared to other clinics. Billing can be messed up...Overall the monitoring is efficient. Some nurses had a hard time to draw the blood due to my small veins. Sometimes lots of people were waiting during the monitoring hours...Based on my age we used multiple embryo transfer...It is a very popular clinic...The billing department is not so good. They messed up my billing couple times.

Dr. Davis was very warm and sensitive. Daily monitoring at the facility is much less personal. Dr. Davis was responsive whenever I reached out with questions, but you have to be proactive in order to get that attention....Dr. Davis fully explained every aspect of the process in a warm and compassionate manner....He will always call you back and will be warm and understanding.... I trusted him entirely and everything went exactly as he described.
Monitoring can be crowded at the main site [Weill Cornell] so going to a satellite location during the earlier part of the window is best....The clinic is very organized and provides all necessary information. Morning monitoring is crowded, but efficient. It can be difficult to call the nurses directly, but the generally return calls within a few hours. The after-hours answering service is terrible....IVF cycle- $10,500 Tests, medication, special procedures (ICSI) billed separately...

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Owen Davis at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Don't be afraid to call with questions or concerns throughout treatment. He will always call you back and will be warm and understanding. If everything is going according to plan, he won't reach out to you, so you have to make it a point to call proactively.

When meeting with Dr. Davis, he really took the time to answer all your questions. Never made me feel rushed. Always had an answer for me based off of statistics. He just really knew what he was doing. never made me feel like what i was asking was insane or unheard of..... I had one antagonist protocol. All i really remember from that cycle was a high dosage of stims. the next cycle was a low dose clomid cycle. and the third cycle was a low dose clomid cycle with estrogen during the tww. he suggested a hysteroscopy in between cycle 2 and 3 and there was a polyp removed.

Dr Davis is incredibly knowledgeable. He’s a very experienced doctor and knows what he is doing. He’s also great in explaining all issues...I also thought he was very compassionate during the treatment, but he’s realistic and show great ability to connect with patients...he added some progesterone shots and changed the medication dosage depending on my results...was always very attentive to my questions and concerns.
It was very busy, but they [monitoring appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College] were fast. One would need to learn busier times to avoid wait, but for the most part it was very efficient. They were also ok to bring my older child if needed (which I know is not allowed in some clinics)...Strength: organized, efficient, great lab, great doctors and staff Weaknesses: billing is complicated in general; medical coordination (for pre certification and questions about out of pocket, for example) is not straightforward
How was your experience with Owen Davis at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Davis is incredibly knowledgeable. He’s a very experienced doctor and knows what he is doing. He’s also great in explaining all issues - you need to pay attention not to loose anything, but you will learn so much from him. I also thought he was very compassionate during the treatment, but he’s realistic and show great ability to connect with patients
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Owen Davis at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Cornell is a large clinic and I find all doctor a bit aggressive in terms of number of embryos transferred. I think they are quite aggressive and that impacts their success rates positively. But risk of multiples is very real and that may not be a great idea for many women. Given my own experience, I would hope Cornell would advocate for lower number of embryos to be transferred.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Owen Davis at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Davis was always very attentive to my questions and concerns. He’s a very busy doctor, but shows total focus on his patients during consultations, exams, etc. finally he was also always available during critical moments

He used the antagonist protocol (similar to my previous clinic), but he added some progesterone shots and changed the medication dosage depending on my results (which did not happen before)
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Weill Cornell Medical College.
They have a very busy nursing staff, but Nurses are helpful, organized and keen to help.

They were also ok to bring my older child if needed (which I know is not allowed in some clinics) - I avoided in respect to others, but I did have to take my child sometimes.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Owen Davis at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Very reasonable for 2 Cycles (doctor was out of pocket, but I got partial reimbursement; clinic was in-network); totally out of pocket for a 3rd cycle
Describe Owen Davis's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Had a traumatic experience and would not transfer multiple embryos ever again - I know i was a true exception, but my recommendation is for people to be more conservative and save unnecessary complicated pregnancies
What specific things went wrong at Weill Cornell Medical College?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Weill Cornell Medical College.
At some point during 3 cycles few mistakes happened - syringes and needles were not ordered in one of the cycles and one regular pharmacy medication (antibiotics) was not ordered for my husband

I don’t think he [Dr. Owen Davis] paid enough attention to my individual case and what could have been causing my infertility. My treatment was not customized. It was generally very difficult to get in touch with the doctor...Good bedside manner...happy to just keep doing IVF cycles without alteration given my unlimited insurance benefit. I self-diagnosed that my fibroids may have driven my infertility which the doctors had ignored.
I frequently had to chase nurses [at Weill Cornell] to get them to call in prescriptions. They were overwhelmed and had short fuses with patients. Doctors were happy to just keep doing IVF cycles without alteration given my unlimited insurance benefit. I self-diagnosed that my fibroids may have driven my infertility which the doctors had ignored...$15k per cycle...Professional Experienced doctors...Clean facilities Accepts insurance Operates generally like a well-oiled machine Modern facilities Range of doctors and specialties onsite and within walking distance Weaknesses: It’s a money making machine Doctors don’t tailor protocols enough No examination of nutritional or lifestyle deficiencies
