How was your experience with Peter Stahl at Columbia University?
Dr. Stahl is a young, well-educated, energetic and straightforward doctor. It was awkward having to see a Urologist, but he completed his tests and surgery with the most respect possible. I didn't enjoy having to be poked and prodded, but it was well worth it with the potential end result of increased sperm quality.

Describe the protocols Peter Stahl used in your cycles at Columbia University and their degree of success.
Dr. Stahl completed a number of medical tests to determine the extent of my male factor infertility. Once all of these test were complete, he took a look at the results holistically and was able to offer a surgical option to potentially remedy all of my issues. The surgery was just completed, successfully, and am now in the waiting period to see if it increased my sperm quality.

They were kind and respectful.

Dr. Stahl's office is part of a large group of medical offices in midtown West.
