I have dealt with Dr. Pfeiffer for over two years. She really doesn't fit the description of a good Dr. she is curt doesn't follow up with you no matter what type of emergency I had. I took a private medical consultant and had her look over my protocol and there where tons of mistakes!!!! I found that dealing with her and her staff made my as is stressful IVF cycles so much more stressfull!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I loved Dr Pfeifer! She was so caring, compassionate understanding and the people working in her office were wonderful. I felt welcomed and at ease. I would definitely recommend her.

Pfeifer was great during IVF consultation. HOWEVER, during IVF she NEVER called with any sort of results or follow up except for the morning of the transfer. That's it. After a positive pregnancy test, she didn't call. Her nurse did. After a lutheal test said my HSG levels are low and might not be a viable pregnancy, still no call. When I asked her secretary for an appointment, receptionist said she will "pencil me in" for 2 weeks from today. I am SO disappointed. And sad really.

Despite my young age, I can assure you I am not naive. I was referred to Dr. Pfeifer through my school for various abnormal test results, and after 6 months I have only gotten worse and extremely frustrated. My anxiety is astronomical. From the very first appointment, this doctor failed to make me feel at ease, and answer my questions completely and with clarity. Perhaps she doesn't like proactive patients who do their own research. Also impossible to get in touch with her. Do not recommend.

Used Pfeifer for IUI and IVF. There are better options that provide more personalized and professional care. -During IVF cycles, we received 0 calls from Pfeifer; all the care was left to the nurse. Nurse was great, but terrible 'bedside manner' for Dr to not call. -Office 'forgot' to call with injection instructions; nobody answered emergency phone # -Fertilization results given by nurse, not Pfeifer, so no explanation of results -Dr didn't call with Day 5 embryo results until Day 7.

Dr Pfeifer has been great to work with! This was my first time doing IVF due to a male infertility factor and chose Cornell based on a referral from a Urologist in KC,MO. She was always very responsive to my questions and allowed me to email her since I was not local to the area. She is one of the nicest MDs and truly cares for her patients. She even called me after my husband's procedure and before my retrieval to see how I was doing. This is a high volume clinic, but never felt like a number.
She has not got back to me after 5 attempts , very rude and has no care for her patients. Very quick to send her expensive bill!!!
