How was your experience with Sydney Chang at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish)?
My consultation with Dr. Chang was extremely optimistic because she was able to show me what the science shows for my age. She was supportive and managed my expectations while giving me an understanding of what the whole process entails so that I had time to think about it, and prepare myself mentally. The process was very relaxed and chill. Dr. Chang was always around if I had any questions or concerns and always had a solution to any question I had.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sydney Chang at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish)?
Nothing! As long as you continue to be transparent with patients about the process, and the way they will feel you are golden.

Describe the protocols Sydney Chang used in your cycles at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish) and their degree of success.
Once I came off birth control, and had two natural cycles, I came in to see how many follicles I had. since I was at baseline and so was my bloodwork, We proceeded to the standard protocol for stimulation. My doses for gonal f, menopur, cetrotide, novarel and lupron were all standard doses. We even thought about doing retrieval a little on the earlier side however, Dr. Chang was most comfortable with waiting a few more days so that the outcome was a bit More favorable. Even though I ran out of Cetrotide, Dr. Chang was able to find the yes and allow me to use one of their doses, and I just replaced it with my own at a later date.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish). (Assigned nurse: Ashley Davis and Hannah)
Ashley & Hannah went above and beyond to ensure I was in the loop at all times with my plan of care. They continuously told me to reach out whenever if I ever had questions or concerns which totally put me at ease! They were also just so supportive and genuinely curious with how I was doing. Ashley C was my nurse day of egg retrieval and she was so efficient! She even told me what to expect upon walking into the OR (room will be cold, you’ll see equipment bright lights etc) that was amazing for getting me mentally prepared! The OR team that day maintained my privacy and comfort so wonderfully. Maryjane recovered me and again was efficient caring and even got me cheese its ! Only area for improvement is trying to get in touch w front desk to schedule appointments. I eventually realized it was best to schedule all my appointments for the week while I was in the office to avoid having to call every time. The calls usually goto an answering service.
Describe your experience with Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish).

Dr. Chang is compassionate, knowledgable and an all around great doctor...She always took the time to answer any and all questions.

How was your experience with Sydney Chang at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish)?
Dr. Chang is compassionate, knowledgable and an all around great doctor. We encountered a few bumps in the road along our fertility journey and Dr. Chang was always available, understanding and worked with us to evolve our plan to be the best one for us. I felt like she was treating me rather than following a blueprint and cannot recommend her enough.

Be honest with Dr. Chang - no question is silly and she will always take the time to talk to you.

Describe the protocols Sydney Chang used in your cycles at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish) and their degree of success.
We initially started to build my lining with estrace and I did not respond as well as Dr. Chang had hoped. She outlined the options - trying a transfer or starting over with a new protocol. We discussed the pros/cons and ultimately decided to cancel that cycle and try again. The next time we used a modified natural cycle leveraging letrozole and had significant improvement which gave us more confidence to transfer.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Chang is extremely empathetic with her patients...she does answer emails and I was able to see her personally several times during my transfer cycle...She also went to great lengths to explain the genetic screening process with us as it relates to IVF...most of my communication about my care and treatment was through the nurses at the clinic...That said, I feel like I was frustrated that I felt I was not being given all the information around my care and results which led me to feel anxious during the process of IVF...
The entire nursing staff [at Northwell Health] was amazing. They reassured me when I was feeling anxious and took the time to know me and my husband as people...egg retrieval, scans, and embryo storage were all located in the same place. Additionally, their genetics counselors are amazing and took the time to really explain everything to us...they do need to be more transparent around protocols, blood test results, etc. in their communication. If you do not know a lot about IVF you might feel really overwhelmed...
How was your experience with Sydney Chang at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish)?
I did not see Dr. Chang at every appointment and most of my communication about my care and treatment was through the nurses at the clinic. Having never undergone IVF before, I wish they could have over-communicated with me as things that were routine for them (shots, symptoms, etc.) were all new to me and I was left feeling anxious and scared most of the time about the process. They did not routinely share my hormone levels or bloodwork results with me unless I specifically asked for them. I am grateful, however, that Dr. Chang took over my care in 2022. I had done 3 medicated cycles prior to working with her and nobody had ever mentioned to me that I might need genetic testing. That was one of the first things that Dr. Chang suggested we do and it turned out that my partner and I were both genetic carriers. Had she not suggested this, we could have gone on to have an unhealthy baby so I am extremely grateful she has this as a part of her standard practice. She also went to great lengths to explain the genetic screening process with us as it relates to IVF.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sydney Chang at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish)?
I wish I did more research before starting IVF to better know what questions to ask. If you ask Dr. Chang a question she will always answer you and she is very direct but if you don't know the questions to ask you might be left feeling in the dark like I did since they don't really offer up a lot of info.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sydney Chang at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish)?
I think Dr. Chang is extremely empathetic with her patients so I did always feel like she treated me like a human. Compared to other Dr's I have worked with in the past she does answer emails and I was able to see her personally several times during my transfer cycle. That said, I feel like I was frustrated that I felt I was not being given all the information around my care and results which led me to feel anxious during the process of IVF.
Describe the protocols Sydney Chang used in your cycles at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish) and their degree of success.
In my first retrieval we used a standard antagonist protocol at the standard dosages. My first egg retrieval failed completely and while they retrieved mature eggs, none of them turned into usable embryos. I wish she had adjusted my protocol mid-way through the first retrieval so I did not have to go through it again. In my second retrieval we did a priming cycle beforehand and this worked wonders -- we were able to recruit more eggs and she upped my overall dosage of Gonal-F this cycle to the max and again this results in nearly double the mature eggs we had at the first retrieval. Dr. Chang did look at what didn't work during my first cycle and adjusted for a positive outcome in my second.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish). (Assigned nurse: Ashley Davis)
The entire nursing staff was amazing. They reassured me when I was feeling anxious and took the time to know me and my husband as people. Ashley in particular was so warm and compassionate with us throughout every interaction and always put our minds at ease. Jeanine and Michelle who I primarily saw for my blood tests and scans were always friendly, professional, and kind.
Describe your experience with Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish).
The facilities are really awesome at this clinic - I liked that egg retrieval, scans, and embryo storage were all located in the same place. Additionally, their genetics counselors are amazing and took the time to really explain everything to us. I think overall they do need to be more transparent around protocols, blood test results, etc. in their communication. If you do not know a lot about IVF you might feel really overwhelmed.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sydney Chang at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish).
$5K - $10K mostly around storage of embryos and genetic testing. A lot was covered for us since we have a medical reason for doing IVF
Describe Sydney Chang's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish).
I was never given the option to transfer multiple embryos because of my age. At this clinic this is something the Doctor said they do not do if you are under 35.
What specific things went wrong at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish)?
  • Lost appointments
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Northwell Health (FKA North Shore Long Island Jewish).
My original Dr. at this clinic left the practice when I was in the middle of a medicated cycle. I was informed of this literally in the middle of a blood draw and given no explanation to why she left. I was referred to this clinic specifically because my OB thought that this Dr. was the best and I was left very confused when she left. For that entire cycle I was working with a temporary Doctor who was always giving me the wrong information during my scans (saying I had cysts when I did not) and caused a lot of confusion. They were not always the best at providing me detailed information around my care and as a person with anxiety I felt that was very important for me to have.
