How was your experience with Peter Schlegel at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Schlegel is a highly regarded male factor infertility specialist who pioneered micro-TESE. I felt he was incredibly knowledgeable and humble despite having patients who travel to see him worldwide.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Peter Schlegel at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr. Schlegel's opinions regarding male factor infertility and co-management with IVF will cost a pretty penny, but it is worth it considering he is one of the few experts in the field. I felt he genuinely cared for us and our situation and only would only do what was medically necessary (not out to take our money).
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Peter Schlegel at Weill Cornell Medical College?

Describe the protocols Peter Schlegel used in your cycles at Weill Cornell Medical College and their degree of success.
Dr. Schlegel can schedule a phone consultation and review records/labs regarding male factor infertility regardless of continuing treatment with him. We were traveling for our treatment and first met him for a pre-op examination and final consultation. Dr. Schlegel was to perform a micro-TESE timed with an antagonist protocol IVF cycle with WCMC. Our TESE was actually cancelled because they found sperm on our operative day. Dr. Schlegel's office was probably more informative about the timing of the egg retrieval than the IVF staff. We have continued to stay in touch with him for additional consults after failed cycles and may see him again in the future should we decide to pursue TESE/IVF.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Weill Cornell Medical College. (Assigned nurse: Kathleen)
Kathleen is always very respectful and approachable. Easy to contact by email and phone. Very understanding of our delicate situation.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Peter Schlegel at Weill Cornell Medical College.
$14K upfront for TESE with a standby physician fee of $1-2K(?) if TESE was not performed. Paid a facility/anesthesiologist fee, which was refunded as we did not have the procedure.

Vericocele repair via surgery [by Dr. Peter Schlegel] at first. Followed by Clomid for 2-3 months prior to egg retrieval...Dr Schlegel properly diagnosed my male inftertility, and took surgical steps to improve the situation. We thought that getting an appointment with him would be nearly impossible given his repuation, however we were able to schedule our first appointment within a matter of weeks. He never rushed our meetings and would answer all questions
$10,000+/- for Vericocele repair surgery [at Weill Cornell Medical College]...Our initial assumption was the Weill Cornell would be a huge factory that would not view us as individuals. That could not have been further from the truth. They were always responsive and willing to accomodate our schedule...[nurses were] Extremely responsive, particularly since my wife and I do not live in NYC. They were always willing to work with our travel schedule to accomodate our needs.
How was your experience with Peter Schlegel at Weill Cornell Medical College?
Dr Schelegel was excellent at recognizing an issue that other doctors had previously not seen. He presented a surgical procedure that while not completely eliminating the infertility issue, did allow for increased sperm production that allowed for a successful ICSI IVF
