Dr. Session is an amazing and very knowledgeable physician. My husband and I have been trying for 5 years and had previously been to a different Reproductive Endocrinologist without success. With Dr. Session, Jennifer (embryologist), Stephanie (RN, IVF Coordinator), and Holly (RN), we were able to get pregnant on our first IVF cycle. I cannot thank or brag on her and her staff enough. They are truly dedicated to their patients!!

They told me to call 1st day of period. They Didn't return my calls or emails for 10 days had to go in person to get appoint bc it was time sensitive & other doctors were booked for months. They did delete my FB review but couldn't call me? They lost my records and everyone's records Bc they made others refill out paperwork in front of me. Her first advice on twins was abortion. She didn't know my history. They accidentally cut my cervix during the HSG. I think they delete every bad review FYI.

Felt I was an inconvenience to her since we weren't ready to jump straight to IVF. Was told it was urgent to call as soon as I started my cycle because of some lab work and since I happened to start on a Friday was then treated like I was crazy for being worried about day 3 falling on a sunday. Was told to come first thing Monday for more lab work and an ultra sound but the lab work was never ordered and she was more than an hour late getting to the office. It was one run around after another.

Best Infertility specialist. I had seen other infertility specialists in the past but by far Dr. Session is the best she explained all my options and addressed all my concerns I never felt uncomfortable and she was always making sure that I was comfortable with my care. I had given up on trying to conceive due to past doctors not making me feel confident on the treatment plans as I they never really explained why they went a particular care plan clearly. I feel so lucky that I found her.

Dr Session is always in a hurry, spends minimal time with patients and never answers questions. She is by far one of the worst providers I've ever had to deal with at Vanderbilt. On my last visit I waited 1 hr for my less than 5 minutes appointment with her. She left the room and just left me there with no instructions of what to do next, if she had faxed my medication and where, and when I how I should proceed if I wasn't pregnant the next time. My time is valuable too!
