From Our Patients

"I am 40 yo, TTC for 2.5 years, have had 1 miscarriage after natural conception. I was a patient at CCRM Denver/LoneTree, where I did 4 IUI cycles with Clomid, and 1 IVF cycle. In my last IVF cycle with CCRM, we retrieved 11 mature eggs, resulting in 6 blastocysts, but all were aneuploid. I was devastated. When we regrouped with our RE at CCRM, she said there was nothing about my protocol that she would change, and that I "just didn't win the genetic lottery." I was frustrated and extremely disappointed. I suspected something about the cycle was compromising my egg quality, so I started doin..."

"I began my IVF journey the beginning of 2020 after trying to get pregnant for 2 years where I had zero success. I started here in Las Vegas with a fertility doc and went through the whole process… the retrieval and then onto the transfers. I had 2 transfers and both failed. Embryos didn’t even try to implant. After talking about the next steps with this doctor and I learned that she wouldn’t change up the process and just keep on trying the same things. From that point on, I knew I needed a different opinion. I was recommended to Dr. Sher from 2 different people in my life during this time..."

"We are currently in the middle of IVF treatment with Dr. Sher and we’ve had an exceptional experience with him and his team so far. Prior to working with Dr. Sher, I had a few consultations with other doctors. I was quickly dismissed as an easy case because I’m young, healthy and have high egg reserves. Dr. Sher took nearly an hour to go through my health history with me and identified a problem that other doctors were quick to overlook. He sent me for extensive follow-on testing, again something other doctors were not willing to do, which helped us feel comfortable moving forward with IVF...."

"Twenty-one years ago, I consulted with your office after being turned away from the first doctor I saw for IVF and after consulting with another practice whose doctor told me that it would be like whipping a dead horse to get me pregnant. Refusing to give up and give in, I did my research and came across Dr. Sher. I called, explained my situation, had my medical records forwarded to your office, and within weeks, Dr. Sher himself made a phone call to me personally. We spoke on the phone for 30 minutes and he told me I would never get pregnant doing what the other doctor had been doing. Afte..."

"Where do I begin? Sean and I will never be able to put into words how much you have helped us in such a short period of time, and how you solved missing pieces to our puzzle. We came to you in January, lost, upset, angry and confused and now we leave you hopeful, excited and parents to be. After two miscarriages, two retrievals, two failed transfers, many procedures and surgery, you somehow looked at our story, made changes, found answers we were desperate for and made our third transfer the "third times a charm". Your expertise, patience, availability and caring personality is beyond. ..."

"I cannot recommend Dr. Tortoriello and his team at Sher more highly. Dr. T is an excellent doctor, very kind, compassionate, patient, always listens to what you have to say including answering many questions during each visit, is very responsive to e-mails, and did not let us give up hope after being unable to conceive after about 5 years and a few IVF attempts. The nurses and staff at Sher, including Cecilia and Bushra, also could not have been more helpful and compassionate. After a failed IVF attempt Dr. T recommended we consult with a reproductive immunologist (as he suspected the is..."

"Dr. Sher & Patti, Here I am again, writing a review a few months after! I was diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve at a younger age. A previous fertility specialist told me that my chances of having healthy eggs were slim. He also told me that he would not invest time into me for more than 1-2 IVF rounds because he did not need my money as he thought I was wasting my time. He did not feel I had a good chance of having my own biological child. He pushed an egg donor on me before even starting IVF. IVF was not successful with him and the protocols he was using. He was not supportive nor..."

"Just couldn’t let a day go by without expressing my gratitude and sincere thanks to the amazing Dr. Drew and his team for their dedication to my personal care 5 years ago as a 45 year old Mom-to-be! Our Daughter is our world and we’re so blessed that Dr. Drew and his team cared for us on our journey. We highly recommend Dr. Drew and his team!"

"February 2022 Dear Dr. Sher, Shauna and I wanted to write to you and let you know how grateful we are to have met you. You along with Patti are amazing people and we thank you for all your help over the past three years. As you know our journey started in Chicago with many different doctors. After three years of many, many rounds of IVF with well over 100 eggs retrieved, 12 transfers and no success, we knew we had to look in another direction. In our research we found you. After three years of great disappointment and not much hope, we were skeptical to start over with a new team, but a..."

"My sister used Dr. Sher and had nothing but good things to say about him, so when I heard he was still taking on cases, I reached out after 4 failed IVF cycles with my previous doctor. I immediately knew from quick and easy conversations with Patti and Dr. Sher that he was the doctor for me. Dr. Sher is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and always makes you feel like you are special. His support staff are super knowledgeable as well and always kept me updated on my progress. Although our first cycle with Dr. Sher was unsuccessful, it was an easy decision to continue working with Dr. She..."

"I’ve had a brilliant first interaction with Dr Sher and his amazing P.A, the wonderful Patti. Patti went out of her way to ensure that Dr Sher called us at a time that worked for us given the time difference. Dr Sher was (it goes without saying) extremely knowledgeable and built a rapport quickly. He was able to pinpoint what has gone wrong with my previous four cycles and very helpfully suggested changes for the next cycle including emailing me suggestions. We are based in the Middle East and following our interaction with Dr Sher, we would love for him to work alongside our doctor to help..."

"We just wanted to send a note to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and express how much we appreciate everything you have done for us. From our first video consult to our transfer, we always felt so confident in you and knew that this would finally be our time. Words cannot express how grateful we are for the care you gave us and for giving us our success story. Our Baby is 16 weeks along now and we truly could not be happier. Happy New Year and all the best in 2022 to you and your family"

"Hello Dr. Sher, We just wanted to send a note to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and express how much we appreciate everything you have done for us. From our first video consult to our transfer, we always felt so confident in you and knew that this would finally be our time. Words cannot express how grateful we are for the care you gave us and for giving us our success story. Our Baby is 16 weeks along now and we truly could not be happier. Happy New Year and all the best in 2022 to you and your family"

"If we do not chat prior, I want to wish you a very happy new year!! My husband and I are beyond grateful for your help the other day. You have been wonderful and we can’t get over how awesome the service is to patients. As we discussed before, we are not used to this lol. The Sher team goes above and beyond. You and Dr. Sher are lovely people. Thank you so much for helping us out. We cannot thank you enough. Have a happy new year and I hope 2022 brings you much happiness and joy!"

"I highly recommend Dr.T and SIRM. Dr.T and his staff are wonderful. He is very kind, knowledgeable, and good human being. We were trying to have a second baby since so long, but didn’t get success. Then we came to know about Dr.T. He listened to us very carefully and guided us accordingly. His staff is also very good, supportive and helpful. Management is so good. I never waited there more than 15 mins to see the doctor. One of the best things is that Dr. T personally replies to your all emails no matter whether it’s a small or big query. Even he supported, guided me after completion of the..."

"I sought out Dr. Sher after a failed IVF cycle in San Diego that included 3 FETs with 5 PGS tested normal blastocysts. My doctor, who was a friendly and lovely person, wanted to use the exact same protocol for a second round of IVF as we did for the first. You know what they say about the definition if insanity ... doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. After scouring the internet, I came across Dr. Sher and his extensive, readily-available articles on immunological reasons for implantation failure. And he was right there is Las Vegas (well not right there...it ..."

"I found Dr. Sher after spending nearly 4 years spinning my wheels with secondary infertility, IVF, recurrent pregnancy loss, and failed embryo transfers. We were on the verge of calling it quits before I came across some of his case studies that sounded quite familiar to my medical history and experiences. I reached out to Patti on a whim and gratefully got in quickly for a Skype consult on a cancellation. He had thoroughly reviewed my entire reproductive medical history, which in and of itself felt so very validating. When he said "I suspect I know what your issues are and have seen many c..."

"I've had a brilliant first interaction with Dr Sher and his amazing P.A, the wonderful Patti. Patti went out of her way to ensure that Dr Sher called us at a time that worked for us given the time difference. Dr Sher was (it goes without saying) extremely knowledgeable and built a rapport quickly. He was able to pinpoint what has gone wrong with my previous four cycles and very helpfully suggested changes for the next cycle including emailing me suggestions. We are based in the Middle East and following our interaction with Dr Sher, we would love for him to work alongside our doctor to help..."

"Working with Dr. Sher and Patti has been delightful. Patti handles all the organization aspects and is thorough, responsive and compassionate. Like most patients who go to Dr. Sher, we have been through the ringer at another fertility clinic, where we felt more like a number than a person. Patti especially has made this experience just the opposite. She calls to check in and when we had a very frustrating miscommunication with LAIVF (the fertility clinic that Dr. Sher is doing his cycles at) Patti was our advocate and made sure to bring the situation to a good resolution, working behind the..."

"I found Sher Fertility Solutions after multiple failed and canceled cycles at a clinic with a one size fits all protocol. Dr. Sher takes many factors into account and does extensive blood-work for his patients in order to find the most suitable individualized protocol for them. I truly feel he has each of his patient's best interests at heart and sincerely appreciate his direct honesty. He moved quickly and effectively and I never felt like I was waiting around for answers. Dr. Sher doesn't make any promises he cannot keep and sincerely cares about each of his patients. Patti is absolute..."

"We just started working with Dr. Sher and are really happy with him as a doctor. We will begin cycling with him in late November in LA. His personal assistant Patti is wonderful and so very helpful! All the tests and paperwork that have to be done prior to cycling have been simple and done in a timely manner. So far I am very happy with Dr. Sher and his staff!"

"If I only had one shot at having a baby and I could pick any doctor in the world, I would pick Dr. Sher. What was once a frantic google search has turned into the biggest blessing I've ever received. I found Dr. Sher almost a decade ago when scouring the internet for answers as to why I couldn't get pregnant. I went to an OBGYN who told me I would never have biological children and that I needed to use donor eggs if I ever wanted to give birth to a baby because my FSH was elevated to 11.2, which according to that doctor meant I had diminished ovarian reserve or premature ovarian failure. I..."

"Dr Sher is definitely a pioneer in ivf. We learned more about our case in just one hour online consultation with him than in the one year of 5 failed cycles that was done. Him and his assistant really care and work with purpose and integrity and compassion which is rare to find in the ivf world today.. Every patient is different and there no one solution that fits all. Look no further Dr Sher will treat your case with detail and give you an honest assessment and catered treatment. We can’t thank him enough for enlightening us. Thank you to Patty for always being so responsive."

"We just had our consultation with Dr.Sher and he was the first doctor to confidently nail down the potential problem which could be preventing us from getting pregnant. He is honest and knowledgeable. We are now more hopeful just knowing there are other treatment options outside of the standard protocols. I wish we went to him sooner. My experience so far has been great starting with his assistant Patti. She is amazing and truly awesome! We are really looking forward to our journey with Dr.Sher and his team! Thank you!!"

"Before I share my feedback on Dr. Sher and Patti Converse, Dr. Sher’s Administrative Assistant/Personal, I would like to tell you about myself and my husband. We have been struggling with infertility for the past 5 and half years. Before Dr. Sher, I worked with 6 Reproductive Endocrinologist and had 4 failed frozen embryo transfers (FET) despite following various protocols . After the 4th failed FET, I connected with Dr. Sher. After all these years of struggles, set backs, and heartbreaks, Dr. Sher was the ONLY doctor who based on my immune testing results diagnosed me with alloimmune, immu..."

"So far I have only had only a consultation with Dr.Sher and I feel like I learned more during the consult than the 6 years I have been trying to conceive. He is honest, straight forward, and kind. Just by speaking to him , I know he would exhaust all avenues to figure out what will be the right protocol for me and my circumstances. I just wish I went to him sooner. He is accessible and available to his patients. My experience so far has been great starting with this assistant Patti. She is absolutely amazing. Cant say enough how wonderful she is. It was a pleasure. Thank you so much!!"

"Dr Sher is the only physician that worked with me to find out why I have been having IVF failures. He listened to me, investigated and he offered me a treatment plan. Dr Sher is always so kind to me and remembers everything about me when we converse. It makes me feel like he truly cares about me as a person and wants me to succeed with IVF. Patti, his assistant is amazing! She is so sweet and always so helpful. Going through this process is extremely stressful. But because Dr Sher, Patti and all of his staff at his NYC office are so amazing, they make it a lot less stressful. I am extrem..."

"I am excited to announce we have a healthy baby boy! I am beyond thankful for Dr Sher, his beside manor, his protocol and for Patti! It is a miracle as I had been to three previous Ivf clinics (unsuccessfully) over the past 5 years before finding Dr Sher and thought that I was not going to be a mom. We trusted his recommendations and his experience. We can’t thank you enough but thank you so much Dr Sher for giving us our miracle!"

"Dr. Sher and Patti are a dynamic duo! Dr. Sher is clearly an expert in the field and he is a straight shooter. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Sher and his team for all of your IVF needs."

"I feel very fortunate to have stumbled across Dr. Sher's blog, what I learned about IVF success and protocols for those like me with DOR has been eye-opening. I felt lucky to receive a consult with such an experienced doctor who is such an expert in this field. And then I was blown away to find out he came out of retirement and you can still do IVF with him! At the time of this review, my procedure is still 2-3 months away, but Dr. Sher has been great so far- he answered or promptly returned my phone calls, and I should have results from the specialty lab testing he does in about a week he..."

"Dr. Sher, Patti and Yari are absolutely amazing! At the time of this review, I have not undergone any of the procedures, yet I have felt support that I have never received from any doctor throughout this journey. I know more from that hour on the phone with Dr. Sher than I learned in 3 years with 4 other doctors. The entire team has gone above and beyond to help me with this process and I feel like I have known them for years. The empathy, care and compassion they demonstrate is unsurpassed. I would 100% recommend this team if you are looking for knowledge, empathy, and assistance that you ..."

"Before I tell you about Dr. Sher and his staff at Sher Fertility Solutions- New York, I would like to tell you about my husband and myself. Jason and I have been trying to conceive for 5 years with no success. Our life together has been a world-wind filled with love and happiness! And here is where our story begins… Our first date was in 2015 and I remember it so vividly. I was nervous because it had been such a long time since I had been out on a date. We pulled up to the restaurant and I got out. Our walk to the door was a little awkward for me. See, Jason was born with cerebral palsy and..."

"I had a second opinion call with Dr Sher after my first egg retrieval was unsuccessful. In the one hour call I learned more about fertility and my specific case than I had at the many appointments with my current doctor. Dr. Sher is a wealth of knowledge and opened my eyes to additional possibilities for my future protocol. It's clear he truly cares and wants to educate and help women in their journeys. I am so grateful for the conversation and am sure we will continue to stay in touch."

"I am beyond thrilled that we found Dr. Sher. My husband and I only recently started our IVF journey, with me having been diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve (AMH of .54) a few months ago. After our first failed IVF attempt, I was left feeling dissatisfied with my previous Dr. because we received very little analysis, and I felt pushed to fit into a cookie-cutter protocol for the 2nd go-around. I was hesitant. I stumbled across Dr. Sher's blog and many informative videos on IVF protocols, DOR etc. . I decided a consult with him wouldn't hurt. Patti responded immediately and helped me s..."

"I’m so happy I found Dr. Sher! After so many IVF failures, I am on the right track now to finally have my second child! Patti, his coordinator is so wonderful and responsive ! They make a fantastic team ! Thank you both ! :)"

"Dr Sher was amazing! It felt so good to speak to someone who understands the problems I am having. The best is he has solutions to fix them! Dr Sher and I had a consult via FaceTime. He gave me detailed explanations of the potential causes of failed implantation and helped me set up a plan to move forward. He explained everything in great detail which I appreciated so much. He then listened to me and answered all of my questions thoroughly so I ended the conversation feeling satisfied and hopeful. Listening to him speak was great! He is very passionate about reproductive immunology and it..."

"Is it possible to say thank you enough for Dr Sher and his team? We will be eternally grateful for the wealth of knowledge that was provided prior to the IVF process, the attention to detail in timing and medication and the helpfulness throughout. Our baby girl made her arrival after two cycles and we feel extremely blessed! Thanks again Dr Sher & team!"

"I can't put into words how much it meant to me to speak with Dr. Sher and to finally feel heard after all these years of advocating for myself. At last, after getting nowhere with my RE, Rheumatologist and OBGYN and PCP re: my immunology questions/concerns I finally found a doctor who was able to address all my worries and make a plan for moving forward. Dr. Sher did a wonderful job of explaining everything to me. It is extremely evident that he is very passionate about his life's work. The confidence he exudes about his vast knowledge is delivered in such a kind and compassionate manner- a..."

"Highly recommend Dr. Sher! Over the past year my husband and I have consulted 4 times with Dr. Sher. It's always been a highlight for us. Dr. Sher has a wealth of knowledge to share and is very down to earth. He pointed us several times in a direction we hadn't gone before and suggested tests we had not yet considered. Each time he followed up with test result interpretations and a course of action in terms of protocol. We are extremely grateful to have access to him via his Skype consultations, despite living on the other side of the planet! I highly recommend anyone who feels stuck to con..."

"We came to Dr Sher looking for help with a thin uterine lining and recurrent miscarriage. He has been extremely thorough and helpful in our journey. He has provided a ton of great information, and we feel comfortable and confident with his care and guidance. We are so grateful for his help and his review of our case!!!"

"We are forever grateful to Dr Sher and his team for our son, who just turned one! We went through three fertility clinics, did multiple IUIs and IVFs. Whereas in other clinics, doctors stressed my age as a main factor of infertility Dr Sher suggested that the medication protocol has a paramount importance. Our son was conceived on the very first IVF attempt with Dr Sher clinic. Unbounded gratitude to Dr Sher for our little miracle boy!"

"My husband and I had been TTC for 10 years. I have Hashimotos, DOR, egg factor issues and a list of other issues including the fact that I am now 42 and my husband is 50. We went through 8 IVF rounds in Texas with no success, (starting in 2014-2020). After researching online in 2020, I came across a YouTube video where Dr. Sher discussed his protocol for DOR/Hashimotos. I gave him a call right away. Using his protocol through Sher Fertility Institute at NYC, I have had the best results! He teamed up with Dr. Tortoriello in NY and came up with a very detailed and customized protocol for our ..."

"After scouring the Internet for some guidance as to why I was having trouble giving my daughter a sibling, I found Dr. Sher’s website. After reading everything I could, I had a hunch that NK cells were at play and keeping me from having a healthy pregnancy. I had been through 4 losses with unexplained secondary infertility before starting IVF. We had two textbook “perfect” FET’s fail. Then I called Patti (who is absolutely wonderful!) to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sher. Dr. Sher was very thorough in reviewing my history. He was thoughtful in speaking with me during our consultation a..."

"I'm 42 and after almost 5 years of trying (two other clinics and 3 doctors-in Canada) , Dr Sher's protocol measures - Worked! First transfer, I am pregnant with a baby boy. We cant wait. :) Note if you are from Canada, Dr. Sher's level of detail is far more advanced. They can not do in Canada what he did in the USA. 100% I would not have become pregnant if I stayed in the Canadian system."

"Dr Sher, Patti and the entire staff of Sher fertility solutions are God's sent. To Patti, thank you so much for your patience and kindness towards everyone that comes to you to get to Dr Sher. You go above and beyond in making sure that problems and concerns are addressed. To Dr Sher, I am forever grateful for your knowledge dealing with infertility. I have gone through multiple IVF circles and also had multiple implantation failures. I almost gave up on the idea of expanding my family. With God's help, I took my case into my hands and started Googling. I came across Sher fertility solutio..."

"My experience with Dr Sher and Patti has been brilliant. I still have some way to go on my fertility journey but with the help of Dr Sher, my local doctor in Dubai and Patti, for the first time in 5 IVF rounds, I have a genetically tested day 5 blastocyst. Dr Sher is brilliant - he is so thorough and detailed. He reviewed all of my medical notes and was able to quickly pinpoint where I had gone wrong in previous cycles. He followed up with me on emails and calls and I was able to comfortably ask him as many questions as I liked. Most importantly, he agreed to have a call with my brilliant..."
