If you have no strong reason to doubt your fertility, I'm sure Dr. Spandorfer would be fine. His initial impression is of sort of a big friendly teddy bear with a touch of frat boy who speaks in plain language. If however, you are in a situation where you think you will likely have a hard time becoming pregnant, I would move on. Once my hormone level tests came back, he became very short with me. Just said that it was very unlikely I'd have kids and when I asked questions, he was impatient and was rushing me out of there. He was blunt, cut me off so abruptly when I misunderstood something and seemed irritated. No compassion at all, just told me like he was giving the weather and left me sitting there with my pants off on the table as he rushed to the next patient. I felt so vulnerable and it was awful. He was however, always willing to have me come back to do a sonogram and blood tests. I was clear from day one that I was against donor conception for very personal reasons. He not once, not twice, but three times pushed it after I was 100% straightforward that I'd either not have children or adopt if that was my only option. Needs a lot of work with compassion and bedside manner. I've sinced moved on to a smaller office and had much better treatment from a kind and caring doctor.

Awful

The first visit was great, he was thorough and takes time to speak with you. It will never happen again, he will not even contact you himself to give you the results of tests done. You will never see him again only a parade of nurses and other doctors who are not always up to date on your case. Horrible. They pump you with hormones and then don't help you or even listen!

Wonderful Experience

Dr. Spandorfer and the entire team at Cornell Fertility were wonderful. For such a sensitive and scary time, they made the process easier and manageable. I am currently 11 weeks pregnant after undergoing 1 successful round of IVF. The entire team was on top of everything and the Doctors really know what they are doing. Previously, I went to Columbia's Women's Fertility Center and the two clinics are night and day (Columbia was dreadful).

You will never be able to reach the doctor, nurse or secretary

They do not answer their phones. You will leave voicemail after voicemail during office hours and never receive a return phone call. They will tell you in person that they will call with the results later that day - they never will. You will feel frustrated, helpless and depressed. When you meet with the doctor he is so encouraging and honest. But you will never hear from him again as his staff is completely useless.

Love!!!! The best!!!
