: but I think you are right about St. B's being less crowded than Cornell.

: Good luck to Beth and any of the NY top 3 would be an excellent choice -- why not consult with 2 of them and decide.

: : : Hello, my husband was just diagnosed with low morphology. I have been going to Columbia and they recommended IVF with ICSI. This is such a major expense for my husband and I. What is everyone's opinion on Columbia and the doctor's there? Should I be going to Cornell? I'm worried about this factory like atomosphere, but do want the best. There are no problems on my end. Help!!!! Thanks so much.

: : The embryologist that developed ICSI left Cornell and is now at St. Barnabas. The doesn't mean that Cornell isn't top notch anymore but do keep in mind he reveiws every case at St. Barnabas. I apologize I can't remember his name but he was on the British team that was able to conceive Louise Brown (the first "test tube" baby!).

: : I decided in big part to go to St. Barnabas over Cornell because of the in-personal factory like setting that friends and my sister had experienced at Cornell and both centers were close to either work(Cornell) or home (St. Barnabas). Read a post written on 8/2/00 by "Sarah" regarding St. Barnabas, her comments match my sentiments 100%.

: : Finally, you're lucky to be choosing between 3 of the best programs in the world - maybe it doesn't really matter if Cornell is like a factory if they get you pregnant!

: : I was successful (5 months pregnant) first time with IVF at St. Barnabas - never tried IUI or Clomid or anything else. I hope you will be too whatever program you choose!
