How was your experience with Susan McClelland Maxwell at NYU?
Dr. Maxwell is easy to talk to, involves you in the treatment plan, and is on the conservative side, which I like. She gave me the pros and cons of doing IVF immediately, but also gave me the reasons for trying IUI first. She gave me her recommendations but also the choice to do what I felt was right for me and my husband.

Describe the protocols Susan McClelland Maxwell used in your cycles at NYU and their degree of success.
I have only completed one IUI cycle so far (unsuccessful). I used Clomid 5 mg on days 5-9. Then Ovidrel injection when I had a big enough follicle. On the second cycle my labs showed that I ovulated that day so they did not do IUI and recommended intercourse.
Describe your experience with your nurse at NYU. (Assigned nurse: Andrea and Laura)
The nurses are all great. Responsive to messages, knowledgeable, compassionate, patient and encouraging!
Describe your experience with NYU.
NYU is organized, high tech, and although some people describe it like a “factory” I never felt like a number. It does run like a well oiled machine, but can be very crowded during the monitoring times. They do their best to accommodate your schedule, which is much appreciated.
