Fertility Treatment: 

Dr. Burt Littman's treatment philosophy is to follow a step-wise approach, with basic testing followed by a personalized treatment regimen that is tailored to the patient's individual situation. He personally performs all infertility tests and procedures for his patients, including ultrasound, hysterosalpingogram (HSG), IUI, and egg retrieval and embryo transfer for IVF. Most blood samples are obtained in the office, without requiring an additional visit to a laboratory.

Patient Review

Your rating: 15 1
I've heard he was very helpful for other patients but for me this experience was a waste of time. I brought labs from both bloodwork and pelvic exams to try to make my first appointment smoother but that didn't matter. While I can understand people skills don't come naturally, you'd think someone who deals with patients daily would know how to talk to someone. I felt like I was at a therapist. I was doing all the talking while I got a nod here or there. He made me feel silly about my health concerns and seemed uninterested in helping me figure out my problem. I came into the office knowing I didn't have pcos but didn't think I would be treated as unimportant because of it. I left the office in tears and much more confused than I had. I guess I shouldn't have had lower expectations.
