Success w/ Doc Too early to know
[Dr. Sasson] is very personable, understanding and honest. He believed in my case and was willing to try a hard situation- after multiple bad cycles and being told my eggs weren’t good, his lab got me 3 good quality embryos! He gave me all the options and presented me with different ideas that no other doctor thought of. I appreciated his care and that he was willing to listen to my ideas as well
I like the [SGF] clinic, only con is it’s small and kind of antiquated. The strengths are the positivity and responsiveness of all staff. I also really like the ease of scheduling and timeliness of it all. The clinic is a little older, not much space for seating or the waiting area / surgical recovery isn’t super new but everything is still very well kept and the clinic overall is pretty good

Dr. Sasson is a knowledgeable and compassionate fertility specialist. Throughtout the process ,and during each of the multiple appointments, he was patient and caring. He took the time to explain every step of the process in a detailed manner and would also answer all our questions. We felt respected and herd during the entire process. We will never forget that on the day of the embryo transfer, he told us he would carry our embryo tranfer in his prayers. We really appreciated it. That showed how he truly cares about each of his patients.
Dr. Sasson and SGF chesterbrook staff quality care, organization and attetion to detail made us feel they truly care of us as humans. They were very supportive and compasionate throughout the process while being honest and setting realistic expectations...The nurse team were very effective in communicating with us during the entire process...We were blessed to have a successful pregnancy after the first IVF cycle

Be receptive and rest assured, you will be in good hands. Since the begining, we felt he was honest and transperent to us. Dr. Sasson is a very knowledgable fertility specialist and he has a great attention to detail. . Early in the process, he presented us a detailed plan to us and explained the layout.

Describe the protocols Isaac Sasson used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania and their degree of success.
We had a 5-day embryo frozen transfer. Progesteron and estrogen shots two weeks prior to the procedure. The reason we did a frozen embryo transfer is that we had genetic testing done on the embryos. We had PGT-A screeing (testing of anomalies in the number of chromosomes). Also, since my husband was born with congenital glaucoma, we were presented the option to do PGT-M screening on our embryos. This additional step delayed our embryo transfer by several months, but it was worth it. Thorugh PGT-M we were able to identify the embryos free of a gene with a mutation that is associated with the desease.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania. (Assigned nurse: Nikki Jagger)
Nikki and the nursing staff are a very organized and supportive team. While Nikki was the primary nurse assigned to us, we also received care from different members of the nursing staff at different points of the process. However, they did a great teamwork and we always felt they had a everything well coordinated. The nurse team were very effective in communicating with us during the entire process.
Describe your experience with Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania.
We started our IVF journey in a different clinic before finding SGF. This gave us a first-hand opportunity to see the difference in care, quality, organization and attention to detail that SGF chesterbrook offers. One of the things that we want to highlight is that the clinic guide us throughout the process in a well organized manner.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Isaac Sasson at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania.
we started our IVF journey in a different clinic before finding SGF, so the total cost for our IVF journey was splitted between both clinics. The portion of costs corresponding to the services provided at SGF was between $17k - $19k, including medications. We were blessed to have a successful pregnancy after the first IVF cycle. Also, we had a good insurance plan which covered a good part of the costs of our treatment.
Describe Isaac Sasson's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania.
Dr. Sasson was very straightforward that he would only transfered one embryo per cycle. To back up his rationale, he explained the complications and risks associated with multiple pregnancy for mom and baby.

We can’t say enough great things about Dr. Sasson!! We are so fortunate to have been referred by so many to him. He was able to identify the source of our fertility challenges quickly, and find the most direct path forward to make the best use of our insurance, as well as additional financial and emotional considerations. He held our hands through difficult moments and broke down stressful tasks into steps
Fantastic clinic [Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania], great friendly staff, great nurses, techs, and phlebotomists and friendly office staff that were available 100% of the time. No question ever went unanswered, no fear or concern ever went unexplored and always handled with kindness and respect. Financial department could be more organized and clear, however it is a complicated process.

Diagnostic including HSG and test for endometriosis, followed by egg retrieval (using menopur, Lupron, gonal-f & ovidrel), followed by ICSI, embryo growth and then freezing/ genetic testing, and finally embryo transfer with 10 weeks of IM progesterone.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania. (Assigned nurse: Chelsea Plantarich)
Chelsea was amazing, I’m sure I had more questions than most and went in with many apprehensions- but Chelsea never made me feel bad about my questions or just needing support! She walked me through every single step- repeated herself as many times as I needed to wrap my head around things, and was someone I could confide in through it all

He [Dr. Isaac Sasson] took the time to meet with me and answer any questions i had and was very empathetic to all the treatments my husband and i had been through. Our final embryo transfer with Dr. Sasson was our one and only success! He called after every ultrasound we had performed to formally congratulate us and check in. After 5+ years and multiple transfers, we are pregnant with our first baby!
[Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania] Strengths: quick at responding, compassionate care, wonderful staff (everyone- down to the secretary), knowledgeable. Willing to take as much time as needed to explain information. Weaknesses: Can be hard to schedule appointments with a work schedule. Working in healthcare as well, the clinic opens at 7 for ultrasounds leading up to the transfer. The secretaries were great at trying to figure out a time to get me in early so that i could get to work. Schedule appointments ahead of time if you know when you will need them.
How was your experience with Isaac Sasson at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania?
My husband and I had been through an extensive amount of fertility treatments with other clinics and physicians, all of which did not result in any success. I was referred to Dr. Sasson for a second opinion within Shady Grove. He took the time to meet with me and answer any questions i had and was very empathetic to all the treatments my husband and i had been through. Our final embryo transfer with Dr. Sasson was our one and only success! He called after every ultrasound we had performed to formally congratulate us and check in. After 5+ years and multiple transfers, we are pregnant with our first baby!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Isaac Sasson at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania?
If you're questioning your care and have been through multiple unsuccessful transfer with euploid embryos, meet with Dr. Sasson. Every case in different, although he is willing to review difficult cases and has great input. Ask questions, he is a wealth of knowledge and is willing to answer them.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Isaac Sasson at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania?
Dr Sasson took the time to communicate with my husband and I and answer any questions we had. Our initial consult was not rushed, and he took the time to answer any questions we had. He followed up with us and truely cared for my husband and I.
Describe the protocols Isaac Sasson used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania and their degree of success.
After multiple unsuccessful transfers, Dr Sasson provided us with a creative plan in attempts to make our last embryo transfer successful. Although i didn't test positive for endometritis or a clotting disorder, we became pregnant taking aspirin, prednisone (higher dose), antibiotics prior to transfer and Lovenox.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania. (Assigned nurse: Mindi)
Mindi was the absolute BEST nurse i had at Shady Grove! I had wonderful nurses prior to transferring my care to Dr Sasson (some with Shady Grove, some at an outside clinic) and Mindi was amazing! Great at answering any questions i had, quick at responding and very compassionate! Her alongside with Dr. Sasson is the team you want to have by your side.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Isaac Sasson at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania.
We were in the shared risk program, so the cost to us upfront was around 45K. This program was of benefit to us though, as it took us multiple retrievals and 8 embryo transfers to have success.
Describe Isaac Sasson's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania.
We only had one embryo left, so we did a single embryo transfer. Prior to Dr. Sasson's care we transferred two embryos at one time, which was unsuccessful.

Dr. Sasson is warm, patient, kind, and thoughtful. He won’t sugarcoat his expectations for success and won’t waste your time with treatments that he doesn’t think will work. When he can, he goes out of his way to be there for your egg retrievals, even when he isn’t on-call. He has a great deal of compassion and is with you for the good and bad news...he’s willing to flex the plan as you prefer...
the billing aspect could be improved [at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania]. It’s complicated when insurance and out-of-pocket is combined. The financial coordinators can’t really offer financial help; they more or less just tell you what you owe. But there isn’t a breakdown of costs. The nurses are better at offering medication options and can direct you to pharmacies with better out of pocket costs. Often, the front desk person wanted to collect a copay even if you didn’t owe one...

Just be patient. Sometimes it can be difficult to connect with him in between treatments, but once you start it’s smooth sailing. Also, don’t be afraid of what he has planned for you - he’s willing to flex the plan as you prefer!

You never felt rushed when you got the chance to see or talk to him.
Describe the protocols Isaac Sasson used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania and their degree of success.
I feel like the 1st ivf round was fairly generic as you don’t know how someone will respond. Found out on this cycle that my right ovary was non-functional. I only had 1 embryo after the 1st round, and it was abnormal when we did the pgt-a test. The 2nd and 3rd ivf rounds were better; my protocol was switched i believe to lupron. I think i had 2 embryos on the 2nd round and 1 was normal. Then, I had the hsg and saline sonogram. And did the mock transfer/ERA transfer. Did the 1st frozen embryo transfer but it failed. Had to do a 3rd ivf round - got 2 normal embryos. Then switched my transfer protocol - took lupron depot and letrozole and then transferred 1. And she stuck!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania. (Assigned nurse: Debbie)
Debbie is awesome. You could ask her a thousand questions and she would answer them without judgement. I felt like she cared about you and your success.
Describe your experience with Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania.
Strengths - they all seemed to work well together. If they had issues with each other, you would never know it. If I couldn’t get ahold of my nurse, I would reach out to another to get in touch.

Often, the front desk person wanted to collect a copay even if you didn’t owe one.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Isaac Sasson at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania.
I used insurance and out of pocket. After 3 ivf rounds, I spent roughly $20,000 to 30,000. I was never offered special plans or shared risk program.
Describe Isaac Sasson's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania.
He’s willing to have a conversation about multiple embryo transfers, but prefers single.
What specific things went wrong at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania?
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania.
It was sometimes hard to get ahold of the dr or nurse in between treatments. You generally speak to the nurse who touches base with the dr. Ive had to leave a few voicemails and emails and hadn’t had return calls or replies. However, once I was able to touch base I felt like all was fine.

Upon my first appointment with Dr. Sasson, he suspected I had endometriosis...was so kind, caring, encouraging, and realistic...ecommended we do carrier genetic testing, test our embryos...ReceptivaDx test to confirm endometriosis...gave us a specific protocol to follow for both egg retrieval and transfer.
SGF Chersterbrook moved locations during my tim with them. The new offices (across the street from the old) are immaculate. Clean, pristine, organized...Megan was amazing...was so compassionate and answered my hundreds of questions and celebrated with me
How was your experience with Isaac Sasson at Shady Grove Fertility Pennsylvania?
After trying for over a year and receiving discouraging test results, my OB sent me to Shady Grove Fertility. I live almost 2 hours from the Chesterbrook office but had several strong recommendations from friends to see Dr. Sasson. Upon my first appointment with Dr. Sasson, he suspected I had endometriosis, which had never been diagnosed by my primary OB. It took me a few months to settle with the idea of proceeding with IVF, but once I did, I knew I was making the right decision. Dr. Sasson was so kind, caring, encouraging, and realistic with the best course of action for me. He recommended we do carrier genetic testing, test our embryos, and that I do the ReceptivaDx test to confirm endometriosis – which then gave us a specific protocol to follow for both egg retrieval and transfer.
