Whether you are just getting started with fertility treatment or have a history of care at other facilities, we are here to guide you every step of the way! We are committed to providing you with the high quality and personalized care that we believe every patient deserves.

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine recommends that you see a reproductive medicine specialist when conception does not occur after one year of unprotected intercourse for women under the age of 35, six months in women 35-39, anyone over the age of 40, or if there are known problems causing infertility. If you suspect you are experiencing issues with your fertility or want to discuss options for fertility preservation, a medical evaluation by a reproductive endocrinologist is highly recommended. For more information or to schedule your initial consultation, please call one of our Admissions Counselors at (646) 756-8294. Also, be sure to check out our FAQs page.

A Three Step Process

Before you begin fertility care at Columbia University Fertility Center, you will meet with one of our physicians to determine which services and treatments are right for you. This initial consultation consists of a conversation with a physician about your relevant medical history and possible treatment options. 

Following this discussion, one of our specialized nurses will ensure that all your questions are answered and that you understand your next steps. You can then speak to a financial counselor, who will review the costs associated with your treatment and any insurance benefits you may have. In addition, you can meet with any of the support staff who will help manage your care.

The fertility assessment will require comprehensive tests to evaluate possible causes of infertility. For female infertility, these tests may include a hormonal evaluation and the examination of the physical integrity and structure of the fallopian tubes and uterus. For males, a semen analysis may be required to determine male infertility. Our physicians will use test results, previous treatment, and medical histories to determine an appropriate course of treatment.
