“November is the month of thankfulness. With only two days to go before Thanksgiving Im sitting here watching my six-month-old sound asleep, a site that I wasnt sure I would ever see a little over a year ago. This holiday season Im beyond grateful for my blessings and Mainline Fertility truly made one of my lifes greatest blessings possible. When we started trying to get pregnant three years ago, we never imagined the road that we would have to take to make our dream of a family come true. During the first appointment that I had with Dr. Glassner he told me that he would be able to get me pregnant and he would not put me through something he wouldnt put his own daughter through. Those words stuck with me throughout our one year journey with fertility treatments. Over the course of our year with Mainline Fertility we had many ups and downs and each one in the end I believe made us stronger. There were many days were life seemed unfair and we cried a lot, but looking back at it now it was absolutely worth every disappointment, every tear, and every appointment. We met many amazing people at Mainline Fertility who we truly believe were put into our lives to give us the strength to keep going, especially on the days where we just wanted to give up. The staff had a way of always knowing what we needed, whether it was a hug, a laugh, or just an ear to listen. There were weeks when we had an appointment almost every day and there were many times when we witnessed a couple leaving the office because they were pregnant and we longed for the day that we would be that couple. The other part of our experience at Mainline Fertility is that we never felt like we were just another patient. At each appointment, we got to talk with the doctor and never felt that we were rushed. The staff cared about our journey and were our biggest cheerleaders. Even when we had to have some hard talks with Dr. Glassner and Rachel about our journey they were always patient, compassion! ate, and most importantly positive. They respected us, and we respected them and we truly felt like every step in our process was a team effort. We found out on August 17, 2015 that we were expecting our miracle baby after a conversion cycle from IVF to IUI. Never a million years did we think this would work since this was our ninth IUI, so when we received the phone call from the nurse saying that we had a positive pregnancy test we were in disbelief. Honestly, it took us several appointments before we could believe that this was reality. The day that we were dismissed from Dr. Glassner was a day full of emotions and gratefulness that we couldnt even begin to explain. Our miracle baby was born on May 4, 2016 and I truly look at him each day and thank God for him. If you are beginning your fertility journey, please use my story as hope that there is a path for you and even though that path may seem unclear in the moment it will all make sense at the end. A motto that I lived by during this process was, remember the past, live in the present, and trust in the future. Our advice to you is be a self-advocate and know that the staff at Mainline Fertility is there for you, and that you matter. Your story is unique and there are no two fertility journeys that are the same. Our journey taught us a lot about each other and redefined for us what true love means. We are forever grateful to Mainline Fertility from their receptionists, to their nurses, and most importantly to Dr. Glassner and Rachel. As we enter this holiday season we have a new appreciation for love and family and we cant thank Mainline Fertility enough for all they have done for our family. May this season of thankfulness inspire everyone to see the beauty of love and family.” Love, Andrea, Kevin and Baby Bryce 11-22-16
“When we first came to Dr. Glassner in 2013, we were at the end of our rope. After losing four pregnancies, we felt we would never get to be parents. But after one round of IVF with Dr. Glassner, I was pregnant and we welcomed our baby girl in May 2014. I thought we had finally figured out the magic formula and that having our second child would be a breeze. I was wrong. After a fluke, natural ectopic pregnancy in January 2015, I went through four more rounds of IVF, one frozen embryo transfer and one IUI. The first round of IVF ended in a chemical pregnancy, the next three failed, the FET failed, and the IUI resulted in yet another ectopic pregnancy. It was determined that my egg quality had rapidly declined in the two short years since I had conceived my daughter, the ectopics were unexplainable and things looked bleak. We could have quit and there were days when I seriously considered it. But we persevered. To say that Dr. Glassner was supportive would be an understatement. I really felt that his heart broke with ours with each failure. He listened to us and our frustrations, spent time after hours on the phone with us answering questions and offering support and never once let us feel that we couldnt be successful again. Before moving on to other options, we decided to give IVF one more try in July, and we were finally successful. Im currently in my second trimester and due in the spring. Some days, it doesnt feel real after everything we went through, but I am so glad we persevered and didnt give up hope. Dr. Glassner and the staff of Main Line Fertility are amazing and we honestly cannot recommend them enough.” MJR (10-17-16)
“I can not speak highly enough of Dr Glassner, Rachel his PA, and all the nursing and staff. As a physician assistant myself I was beyond impressed with the care both clinically and emotionally that this office provides to its patients. My husband and I had issues trying for over a year when we saw Dr Glassner. He was very positive we had a small problem that just needed some fine tuning. My first treatment with clomid and IUI was successful- unfortunately this pregnancy had a chromosomal abnormality which lead to miscarriage around 11 weeks. But from day 1 that I learned I was pregnant, Dr Glassner knew things looked suspicious for chromosomal abnormality and prepared me for what was to come. After a few weeks to recover, we did clomid and IUI again- also successful on the first attempt. I am now 30 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby boy and my husband and I couldn’t be more thankful for this gift. I can not thank Mainline Fertility enough and look forward to making more babies with their help”. JKB 9-1-16
” My son would soon turn one!!! And this miracle baby of mine is only due to Dr. Michael Glassner and his wonderful team at MLF. After trying for almost 3.5 years, we finally resorted to MLF. After some check ups, we found out that I had severe endometrosis. Dr. Glassner had mentioned that IVF would be my best resort but never pushed us for that. We tried everything – 2/3 cycles of Clomid, 3 IUIs.. Finally we decided to do injectables and IVF. First two times, my body didn’t respond well to the meds. The third time, my body responded well and we could finally reach to the stage of egg retrieval. However, my body wasn’t ready for ET yet, hence doctor suggested us to do frozen transfer. After waiting for a month and half, we were all ready for FET.. We were debating between deciding the number of embryos to be transferred -1, 2 or 3.. Unable to make a decision, we decided to just go with what dr would advise. We wanted one baby, at the most two but didn’t want to risk it against having no baby. Dr suggested there were 60% chances of me getting pregnant with one baby if we transfer 2 embryos. And finally, I was pregnant with one baby. My pregnancy was easy and I have a beautiful baby. Dr. Glassner is a god to us. We have no words to thank him and his team. ” 8-18-16 SK
“When you are going through the journey of IVF you are inundated by numbers. Numbers begin to take over your focus until they are all you think about. If you are reading this and trying to decide if Mainline Fertility is a fit for you, let me tell you my story by the numbers. Four – The number of IVF cycles we started Three – The number of IVF cycles we completed Two – The number of cycles that resulted in positive pregnancy tests Three – The number of losses from those pregnancies One – The number of mature eggs we retrieved from my third cycle Eight – The number of donor eggs we purchased during our last cycle Five – The number of my eggs we retrieved from my last cycle Thirteen – The total number of eggs from my last cycle Two – The number of MY eggs that looked ready Ten – The number of months I carried my now 3-month old little girl One – Doctor who let me ask questions and cry. Who mourned with us when the unthinkable occurred. Who listened when I told him about my research. Who gave us real facts. Who celebrated our success. Countless – The number of nurses and staff who lovingly welcomed us appointment after appointment, who let me vent and calmly responded, Who hugged me when the news came and when the tears came. Who held their breathes with us at ultrasounds and pregnancy tests and cheered us on the whole way. This journey isn’t one I would wish on anyone, but if you have to go through it, I highly recommend Dr. Glassner and all the doctors at Mainline Fertility and their wonderful team. Because of them I brought home my miracle on Mother’s day of this year, 2016, and will forever be grateful.” 8-16-16 MMB
“Thank you Main Line Fertility and Dr. Deanna Brasile for providing us an avenue to have a family. It was a long and hard process, but Dr. Brasile stuck by us and worked with us to make it happen. We are now blessed with boy/girl twins born May 2016: Caitrin Rowan and Mattocks Ryan. I am 43 years old and my eggs were not viable, we tried many different avenues of IVF and we were able to conceive with the help of donor eggs” BSM (June 10, 2016)
“My husband and I cannot thank Dr. Glassner and the wonderful staff of MLF enough for helping us achieve our dream of becoming parents to a beautiful baby girl! After an early miscarriage in 2014 and trying to conceive for almost a year afterwards, we became discouraged, wondering if we would be able to get pregnant at all. The minute we met Dr. Glassner we knew we were in the right hands to begin this journey. Dr. Glassner is extremely kind, supportive and knows what so many couples go through with trying to get pregnant. He eased our fears, and we got pregnant on our second round of Clomid. We received the absolute best care from MLF, which made us confident when we graduated to my OB-GYN. When our daughter was born this past November, we chose her middle name to honor Dr. Glassner, so we would always be reminded of the wonderful experience we had. We highly recommend MLF to anyone in our area looking to achieve pregnancy, and we will be forever grateful for all Dr. Glassner did to help us. M.B. (3-3-16)
“My words cannot express the gratitude that I have with all the team from MLF specially Dr. Glassner. 7 month ago I gave birth to my daughter. She is beautiful, energetic, smart and perfect. Conceiving was a very emotional journal. I was so bless to have a great team around me during that time. I appreciate that Dr. Glassner was always very straight forward with my chances to getting pregnant. Im over 40 years old and percentages decrease with age; however, that help me to be relax and positive. One of the things that I appreciate also is that I always have someone to talk. When you are in a process like this you want to call and have answers. They always respond. With MLF you will be with the best team. Today, Im in the most wonderful and happy moment of my life. Thanks again to MLF.” M.P.B. (3-1-16)
“We are currently expecting our third child thanks to MLF. In 2012, we came to Dr.Glassner in the hopes that he could help us conceive a child. Thanks to IVF with ICSI we were blessed with boy/girl twins 5/20/2013. When it came time to expand our family again we came back and thanks to Dr. Brasile we are now expecting baby #3 from a FET cycle. We can’t speak highly enough about how wonderful she was throughout the process. We are looking forward to introducing our little girl to her once she arrives in May” R.B. (2-10-16)
” R and C and the Miracle twins So many times I wanted to write this testimony of how we got to this beautiful journey of becoming parents. But, I should tell you that we can write a book about the most beautiful and most rewarding experience we had with Dr. Orris, Heather, Brie, Stephanie, Deb, Megan, Nicole, and Lisa, and everyone that was part of this beautiful journey. It took a lot of encouragement to open up to doctors about why we could not conceive, as in our culture, there is no open discussion about infertility. After 2 yrs or so of working with our OBGYN and failed to even become pregnant, we decided to contact Main Line Fertility. We walked in and we felt that this was going to be our destiny, finally, but, we went through ups and downs. After our last miscarriage, as we were ready to give up, we heard the encouragement and words of wisdom of Dr. Orris, and decided to try one more time. This time, all went the perfect way, we were expecting twins!! We had our twins at 34.5 weeks and they are the most precious gift that the Lord gave to us. We graduated from the weekly visits with Dr. Orris to our OBGYN and it was really sad to leave them. During our pregnancy journey, we missed them terribly. We missed them because there is nothing like to see and be assured that all is going well in a weekly basis. We will be forever grateful to the Lord for sending us to the right place and to Dr. Orris and his staff. Every time we see our little ones, we see the Lord and we remember Dr. Orris because without them, we would not have ever experience what it is being a mom and a dad. Now, we found ourselves with Dr. Orris again, and this time with a miracle pregnancy that still in the hands of The Lord as this was a gift from him, but, with Dr. Orris beautiful, warmest, and unprejudiced heart, he invited us to be monitor as our OBGYN does not see patients until further in the pregnancy and we, Dr. Orris and ourselves, want this miracle to make it and be part of our family. So, for those who have lost hope, have being told that could never conceive, feel that there has to be an answer to why you cant and others can, please call Main Line Fertility. They are the BEST. We will forever love them and love each of them and our children will too become to love them”. R & C & the Miracle Twins (January 8, 2016)
“My wife and I had an amazing experience with Main Line Fertility, namely, Dr. John Orris, and his medical staff. My wife and I came to Dr. Orris after having a miscarriage last year and been having fertility problems do to one of my wife’s medical conditions. Dr. Orris examined my wife, spoke to us at great length, and related that he was confident we could and should attempt to get pregnant again. We listened and indeed we were again pregnant. Unfortunately we sustained a second miscarriage. The process that followed was grueling (lots of shots and drugs) and Dr. Orris ultrasound technician Stephanie, and his technical assistants were unbelievably supportive, informative, and kind. Dr. Orris continued to conduct thorough testing on both my wife and myself for answers, Dr. Orris sent us for PGD testing and the end result? Pregnant made it 10 weeks so far and just graduated to Chester County OBGYN. If you are having fertility issues, I cannot recommend a better doctor or practice then Drs. Orris, Glassner, and Brasile at Main Line Fertility.” DBQ 10-22-15
“As I sit here writing these words, I am looking at my beautiful son who was conceived through an amazing journey at Mainline Fertility under the care of Dr. Orris. I came to Dr. Orris in August of 2014, having suffered 4 consecutive miscarriages with no answers from my OBGYN. Dr. Orris reviewed my medical records and looked at me with confidence and said, You are one of the easy cases. You are going to have a baby in 2015. Following that initial visit, Dr. Orris and his staff saw me almost every other week for testing and monitoring of hormone levels. In October, I took one round of clomid and low and behold I became pregnant. Every ultrasound was terrifying and thrilling. I was so scared that what had happened before would happen again.no heartbeat. But every week there was a heartbeat, every week my sweet baby grew stronger. My husband and I marveled at every single picture we received of our miracle baby. We had some bumps, scary moments, and times when we thought the worse was happening again. Just before Christmas 2015, Dr. Orris made the phone call to my OBGYN, releasing me to their care. I was so scared to leave the comfort of weekly meetings with him and his staff. In July, at 39 weeks and 4 days pregnant, I gave birth to my sweet son. He is perfect and here because of the compassion, expertise, and care I received from Dr. Orris and the staff at Mainline Fertility. We are forever grateful! I have and will continue to recommend this practice to anyone struggling with fertility issues. Simply an amazing group of individuals” 9-14-15 NEW
“After 3.5 years of 7 failed IUIs, 5 IVFs, my husband and I decided to move forward with the egg donor program. I was hesitant at first and needed to come to term with the fact that my DNA would not be passed through to my child. I soon realized that my blood, my body, my food would nourish this child and biologically she would be mine. To me, it was more important to experience pregnancy, to carry a baby, to go through the birthing process, to physically bring a child into this world than it was where the egg came from. Thanks to the egg donor program and the unbelievable staff at MLF, I now have a beautiful 5 month old baby girl. She looks EXACTLY like her daddy but I know she has my spirit and personality!” LS 4-28-15
“Words cannot describe the incredible experience my wife and I had with Main Line Fertility, namely, Dr. John Orris, and his medical staff . You see it wasnt just the perfect end result of having chosen Dr. Orris that compels me to write this testimony for others considering his practice to read. Its the fact that the entire journey, which had its share of obstacles, trials and tribulations, was navigated by the compassionate engineering of Dr. Orris. My wife and I came to Dr. Orris in February of 2014 having just had a miscarriage. Dr. Orris examined my wife, spoke to us at great length, and related that he was confident we could and should attempt to get pregnant again. By March we were again pregnant. In May of 2014 we sustained a second miscarriage. The process that followed was grueling and Dr. Orris ultrasound technician Stephanie, and his technical assistants Heather and Bree were unbelievably supportive, informative, and kind. They kept my head above water so to speak. However my wife had, under the circumstances, sunk into a depression where neither I nor her family could reach her most days. This is where Dr. Orris, in my opinion, has separated and distinguished himself, above his peers in this medical field. You see Dr. Orris has a keen sense of the human psyche, and he is very good at reading people. It wasnt just his patience and bed side manner that made him unforgettable in our hearts and minds, it was what he did next. Dr. Orris took my wife aside on several subsequent appointments and spoke to her/us, in a manner of both logic and love, that enabled him to reach my wife in a way none of the rest of us could. While his office continued to conduct thorough testing on both my wife and me for answers, Dr. Orris healed my wife both physically and spiritually from the inside out. The end result? Pregnant with twins, that were carried thirty-eight weeks, and then delivered at Paoli Hospital in April of 2015. If you are having fertility issues, I cannot recommend a better doctor or practice then Drs. Orris, Glassner, and Brasile at Main Line Fertility” ATB April 21, 2015
“I would highly recommend Main Line fertility. I had a lot of trouble getting pregnant with my first daughter and they helped me to have a gorgeous little girl who is now 15 months old. With their help, I was also able to have a second little girl who is now one month old. I was so frustrated when I first came to the clinic and throughout the entire process, and they were very patient with me. Dr. Brasile was the specific doctor who helped me every step of the way. I love Dr. Brasile. She was always great at explaining everything to me.” AND 4-20-15
“After almost a year of trying to conceive, my husband and I decided it was time for us to get some help. Mainline Fertility came highly recommended from my regular OBGYN, who mentioned to me that almost half of their patients became parents with help by Mainline Fertility. I nervously walked into the clinic in July 2014. Dr. Deanna Brasile was incredible helpful, thorough and understanding. She assured me that she would do her best to get me pregnant a s a p. After some extensive testing my husband was diagnosed with low count and I had low progesterone levels and irregular ovulation. Dr. Brasile advised us to wait for several months for my husbands count to go up while we were trying to regulate my progesterone levels. In February 2015 after one round of Clomid and one IUI procedure we found out that we are pregnant. We are expecting our baby this autumn. The whole experience with Mainline fertility was just excellent. The entire staff made me feel comfortable during these frustrating times. Very supportive, warm and attentive professionals! Thank you so much for everything!” AM 4-2-15
“This was our 2nd success using Dr. Orris. We did not have fertility issues with our first daughter, but then have needed help with the subsequent pregnancies. We checked out fine but could not get pregnant on our own. He is incredibly knowledgeable with his recommendations and actions within our infertility. He is sensitive to our situation and makes my husband and I comfortable and confident while going there. We used clomid and IUI and got pregnant the first cycle this time and the 4th cycle our first time utilizing MLF. We now are expecting our third child in October and are super impressed with Dr. Orris and meeting and working with Dr. Brasile this time, and the whole crew at Main Line Fertility, we look forward to using them for our 4th child in a couple of years! We are forever grateful to everyone for helping our family grow and having the best support to do so.” KP 3-23-15
“There are no words to explain what Dr. Orris and his staff did for our family. After having a miscarriage and then trouble getting pregnant, it was amazing to have a team of professionals at each and every step along the way. It was apparent that every single person that we came into contact with at the office truly cared and understood. Not once did I feel like we were a burden or that a question was unwelcome. We gave birth to our beautiful, healthy baby girl on 11/14/14 and our lives just feel complete. A simple “thank you” would simply not be sufficient. See you for baby number 2!” TLC (3-4-15)
“The experience at Main Line Fertility was an awesome experience. My husband and I have been waiting for a long time for a miracle. Dr. Glassner and his staff were professional, encouraging, and caring in our situation. They made me feel comfortable in preparing in the steps leading to my pregnancy. We are excited and expecting our first bundle of joy in May 2015. We found out we are having a girl! Thank you Dr. Glassner and staff for all you have done for us.” DC (2-13-15).
“There was always a part of me deep down that thought I may have trouble conceiving. After hearing from friends regarding their fertility struggles, and almost a year of trying, my husband and I decided we needed to get checked out. Dr. Glassner and Mainline Fertility came highly recommended from a close friend who with their help had welcomed a daughter. I remember the nerves and at the same time the excitement we had after our first appointment with Dr. Glassner. He was frank, and made sure he was explaining what our next steps were so that we understood and were comfortable with them. As tests were run and the results came back it seemed as if the potential reasons for infertility were adding up. Our main obstacle being that I was ovulating immature eggs. Dr. Glassner felt our problems were ones that he could fix. Our first meeting was in October 2013 and after one round of Clomid and one IUI, we became pregnant in December 2013. A few short weeks later we found out that we were expecting TWINS! We welcomed our son and daughter in August and I cannot imagine a life without them. I know without the help we received from Mainline Fertility that they would not be here today. Words will never be able to accurately explain the amount of gratitude I have for the entire staff.” HLD 1-12-15
” I was referred to Main Line Fertility by my OBGYN and started seeing Dr.Glassner 11 months ago. After my first meeting with Dr. Glassner I had such a positive feeling with not only him but with the entire staff. Each and every staff member I was in contact with made me feel so special and comfortable. After 5 IUI’s I became pregnant with twin boys who are now 6 weeks old. With the help and support of Main Line Fertility, my husband and I were able to fulfill one of our dreams to have children. I can’t thank the doctors and staff enough for helping us through this journey.” SR 12-5-14
“We cannot say enough amazing things about Dr. John Orris and his staff at Main Line Fertility. They made us feel extremely comfortable and were very welcoming from the very first visit to our very last. They truly care about you and your well being and were always there to answer any questions we may have had. We were successful on our second IUI procedure and are expecting in July!!! We were also very pleased with the way everything was run in both the West Chester and Bryn Mawr offices. A HUGE Thank You just does not seem enough.” DP 12-4-14
” Im not sure words can quite express how fantastic Dr. Deanna Brasile is. Walking into an infertility clinic is intimidating. There are a lot of mixed feelings (whether rational or not) that go along with the experience everything from fear to embarrassment to hesitant hope. Not only was Dr. Brasile extremely knowledgeable and proficient regarding the medical facets of infertility (which is a huge comfort in and of itself) but she was uncommonly kind and compassionate. She spoke to both my husband and I equally, addressing all of our questions and concerns and working hard to reinforce the idea that the three of us were a team. She approached all of our meetings with an arsenal of information, new ideas and research, and always a comforting attitude of purpose, aptitude and determination. She made us feel like more than just nameless, faceless patients, but friends whose struggle – and sense of comfort and well-being – was incredibly important to her. Despite several failed attempts early on, I never left the office without a renewed feeling of hope. Less than a year later, I am thrilled to say that I am almost 4 months pregnant. Though I am happy I was healthy enough to be released to a regular OB, it was with a heavy heart that I left Mainline Fertility (the nurses, techs and staff are fabulous too!) and particularly, Dr. Brasile. She has changed our life in so many ways. We will never be able to fully express our gratitude and love.” EGM 11-10-14
“The Doctors and nurses at MLF are INCREDIBLE!!! They went above and beyond to help us try everything possible before going to IVF and made sure we were comfortable and ready once we realized IVF was the right choice. Our beautiful little girl was well worth everything and we even have 10 frozen embryos and hope to have success with another baby when we are ready to try again. I can’t say enough good things about the fabulous team- they have given my husband and I the most precious miracle we could ever ask for!” KDM (11-4-14)
” I just want to send a long overdue thank-you to Dr. Glassner and the team at Mainline Fertility. We visited the Paoli office in February 2013 and in December 2013 we were blessed with our beautiful daughter. Yes, Mainline Fertility helped us conceive during the first month. Thank-you for your support and dedication while we were under your care!” TL (10-14-14)
“Main line fertility was a very warm and inviting place. My husband and I tried to get pregnant for almost a year with no luck. Dr. Braslle assured us she would do her best to get us pregnant and almost guaranteed a pregnancy. I was diagnosed with PCOS and my husband’s count and motility were very low. We tried 3 rounds of IUI with no luck. Dr. Brasile recommended my husband get a surgery that would possibly help his count and motility. 6 weeks after his surgery they tested him and his numbers had tripled! Once he was heeled from his surgery and we weren’t really trying I went back to Dr. Brasille to start everything back up and they drew my blood. They told me due to my levels there was a possibility I was pregnant and I went back a few days later and it was confirmed I was pregnant! Now I have a beautiful little girl thanks to Dr. Brasile!” CK (10-14-14)
“Main Line Fertility and their entire team are GREAT!! Dr. Orris is the BEST around!! You cannot get any better. Here is my story…At age 36, through intercourse, I got pregnant and had a healthy baby. Then from ages 38 through 41, I had secondary infertility. My dreams turned into a reality when I went to see Dr. Orris. Dr. Orris analyzed my situation thoroughly and took the necessary time and reviewed my thick pile of paperwork/history I brought to him. My sixth IVF (first time with Dr. Orris) resulted into healthy baby. NEVER let the odds deter you from doing what you know in your heart you should do. All I can say is he is highly recommended!! I would go up to complete strangers that looked 40’ish and ask them if they received fertility help to conceive their child. My mother says it’s no ones business…well let me tell you, PLEASE do not be embarrassed, the only way to learn is talking about infertility! So, two gals told me about Dr. Orris, how he help get them pregnant via IUI; he didn’t push them into doing the IVF procedure since he thought it wasn’t necessary and all they needed was an IUI to get pregnant. I was past the IUIs and went with Dr. Orris’ protocol and had a healthy baby at 41!! I am now 42 and hope we can replicate the same thing. Dr. Orris is the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” J.A.W. (9-3-14)
“After 4 years of trying to conceive, 3 failed IVF’s and a miscarriage my husband and I thought our dream of having a family would never come true. Fortunately we found Eileen in the research study department and she had us come in and start care under Dr. Orris. In just a few short months our dream came true and we are now expecting twins in January! I cannot say enough wonderful things about the care we received from Dr. Orris, Eileen and the entire team at main line fertility. We were treated as individuals, never felt rushed, they took the time to answer all of our questions and encouraged us not to give up. I will be forever grateful to Main line Fertility for giving us our family.” EAF 8-18-14
” After learning that we were faced with fertility issues in our home state of Vermont we were devastated and at age 39, we did not have time to waste. Our situation was only made worse with re-occurring negative experiences with the seemingly un-empathetic, confusing, and doubtful doctors and medical staff at our local hospital. Thankfully we were fortunate enough to be put in contact with Dr. Glassner by a family member and from the moment of our first phone call we received the absolute highest level of care, comfort, and support during such a challenging time. We first met with Dr. Glassner on July 3, 2013. We travelled back and forth from VT to PA for two months for ultrasounds, retrieval, implantation, and confirmation. We were pregnant by mid-August after our first round of IVF with ICSI and PGD and our healthy baby boy was born April 29, 2014 – 6lb 6oz and 19.5″. Words can’t express the gratitude we have for Dr. Glassner and the staff at MLF for giving us our miracle baby and for making the entire process a positive one. Our experience could not have been better. Everyone at MLF was compassionate, honest, supportive, and knowledgeable; from the people at the front desk, to the nurses, to Dr. Glassner himself. Most importantly, they all made us feel “normal” again. Every detail of every situation was well thought out – from a medical to an emotional standpoint there is never a box of tissues out of arms reach! We would definitely recommend visiting Dr. Glassner and his team to anyone and everyone faced with fertility issues – even if you live outside of the Philadelphia area. It was so worth it! We will be back when it’s time to try for #2.” 7-14-14 SW and MG
“Mainline Fertility Clinic is a very special place full of very special people. Let’s be honest, patients don’t want to be there – dealing with infertility issues is difficult for both men and women struggling to have a child. The nurses and staff at Main Line Fertility are amazing; they are kind, selfless and will seemingly do everything they can to make sure you, the patient, are comfortable. I was lucky enough to work with Dr. Orris undergoing IUI treatments. Dr. Orris made both my husband and I feel comfortable and answered any questions we had about treatments. He spent the time explaining what we should do in our next steps and why. I have worked with many doctors and I felt like he listened to me and my concerns, I wasn’t just a number. The ultrasound technician Kathy is one of a kind and does an amazing job. Each time I had to go in she was always kind and more importantly did a wonderful job putting me at ease during an regularly uncomfortable visit. I looked forward to seeing her and hearing about what was new in her life. She’s amazing! As I said, going to the fertility clinic can be difficult and trying but they do a great job. I would recommend them to any one of my friends or family members going through the same or similar uphill battle we did to conceive. ” EH (7-1-14)
“Dr. Glassner, every once in awhile you meet someone that changes your life, a teacher, a friend, or even a doctor. You have been all three to us over the last 3 years. We always felt that we were in the best hands and honestly always looked forward to seeing you and learning from you. We admire your dedication and passion to your field. We are so excited to share our birth announcement with you and your team. Thank you for helping us to become a family.” Baby boy born June 1, 2014 5:14 AM, 6lbs, 6oz, 18 inches. MC and SC (6-9-2014)
“I have been meaning to write one of these for a long time, but every time I sit down to do it, I don’t know where to start. This October it will be three years since we started trying to have a baby, but by the time it rolls around, our little girl will be 5 months old. We owe everything to the doctors and nurses at MLF. It’s because of their support and perseverance that I sit here, hugely pregnant and 2 days past my due date, waiting for our little miracle to finally arrive. Their empathy and care during our miscarriages, and their sincere joy and happiness for us when the fifth one finally stuck, helped get us through one of the hardest times in our lives. Even during IVF, when we were left with only two embryos and felt that this was something that wasn’t going to happen for us, Dr. Glassner encouraged us to keep the faith and believe – and it worked. We will be forever grateful to everyone at MLF for giving us our miracle baby and allowing us to have the opportunity to finally become parents. And, we will definitely be back for number two!” MJ (5-23-14)
“My husband and I first met with Dr. Glassner in November 2013. After he looked through my medical history, he said very confidently he’d have us pregnant by February 2014…. And he was exactly right!! From day one, the entire staff was extremely supportive, caring and always available. The nurses took great care of me when I experienced some health issues after IVF. They nurtured me through a tough time and I can’t thank them enough. Dr. Glassner is the best. He is attentive, caring and very personable. He made us feel comfortable and always explained things in detail. He always gave us exceptional care and service. We are so pleased with the service as a whole from MLF. As soon as you walk in, the receptionists are friendly and inviting. The facility is professional, clean and spacious. We highly, highly recommend MLF. The entire staff is professional, courteous, supportive, compassionate to individual needs, attentive and warm. We had a successful IVF in February!! First IVF cycle too!! In April we bid farewell for now but on my way out, Dr. Glassner and nurses all hugged me and congratulated me! They nurtured us through a storm for a few months and for that we are forever grateful. We are expecting our baby this Fall, all thanks to MLF. ” (5-18-14)
“My husband & I had tried to have a child for close to 8 years with no success. We decided it was time to get professional help and decided to go [another center]. From the start the environment was cold and uninviting and every step of process was met w/a cold touch from the doctors and after having a terrible ectopic loss & almost 2 years of an awful roller coaster ride, we decided it was time to move on. We found MLF through a friend that had raved about them. Well the difference from [another center] to MLF was night and day. We walked into MLF and were met w/warmth from the get go & each person I encountered offered nothing but warmth and constant support through every step of our journey. I am happy to say that after 8 years and an additional year w/MLF we have a gorgeous healthy one year old angel! I can’t begin to tell you how much each nurse and Dr has meant to us. Dr Pfeffer (who has retired)was literally like a father to me and each nurse Shirley, Daria ,Cathy & all the dozens more offered me nothing but love and support & to this day they still send me texts. They were not only nurses but our friends! We have decided to try for number two and I can’t wait to see all my friends at MLF and share in this new journey. I can’t tell you enough good things because I would run out of space and words. If you are considering another practice please don’t because you WILL regret it, MLF is a cut above any practice I have ever been to. If it were not for their expertise,kindness & patience we may still be trying to be parents w/no success. They truly were the conduits of god’s work in bringing our angel down from heaven!” MM (5-7-14)
“We met Dr Glassner about twelve years ago, blessed with one beautiful daughter
and about six miscarriages. We always wanted a large family. After talking with
us, he point blank asked me if I was willing to miscarry again- if he promised
me a baby. He told us he would figure out what was going on….(and he did!) As
heartbreaking as it can be to lose a baby…. I told him I was- if he would hug
me when I cried… That’s what I needed from my doctor…The little blessings in
your arms are well worth the perseverance. After a few more losses, nine total,
we gave birth to our second child in 2004, our third child in 2006, and by the
grace of GOD, and the gifts of Dr Glassner and his incredible staff- our fourth
child in 2009! (And if it wasn’t for their impeccable care, #4 probably wouldn’t
have made it through the first trimester!) Words could not express our gratitude
for the joy he helped bring to our lives. I have referred several friends to
MLF… And will continue to do so. Stay strong my friends, stay positive, and
smile through the tears… The best is yet to come!” SAP (4-16-14)
“My wife and I are both physicians in Philadelphia involved in the care of
children, and we now have our own healthy baby boy as a result of the exemplary
care that we received at Main Line Fertility. We did extensive research on the
IVF centers within the city (also eliciting the opinions of other physicians we
know that went through this process), and we could not be happier with our
decision to go to MLF. We followed with Dr. Glassner, who does a remarkable job
of balancing professionalism and personability. I genuinely believe that this is
the best IVF option in (and around) the city, and I would strongly encourage any
couple in the city considering IVF to see Dr. Glassner (if it is feasible for
them to do so).” AP (4-12-14)
“After about 18 months of trying for our first child, my husband and I went to
see Dr. Orris at Main Line Fertility. After 6 failed IUIs, we moved forward
with IVF. I was extremely nervous about the whole process, but everyone at MLF
made it easier than I could have ever imagined. I’ll never forget Dr. Orris
telling me “My job is to be your cheerleader through this process.” He was that
and more. After having a successful first round of IVF in October 2011 that
enabled us to bring a healthy baby girl into our lives, we are back to try for a
second. 🙂 I have to say…after over 2 years of not stepping foot into the
office, every face is still familiar to me and the staff and Dr. Orris made me
feel like I never left…kind of like family. They are welcoming, friendly, and
kind, yet top notch professionals. That’s very comforting and calming when
you’re about to enter a potentially stressful time. I HIGHLY recommend Main Line
Fertility and Dr. Orris to anyone having trouble with their fertility journey. I
can’t thank them enough for all they’ve done to help us bring our perfectly
healthy, smart, and funny girl into our lives and for helping me feel relaxed
and confident as we try for a second.” JR (4-4-14)
“My husband and I first came to meet with Dr. Glassner in June of 2011 after one
year of having trouble conceiving. I was extremely nervous and did not know what
to expect. The second I met with Dr. Glassner and all the nurses I knew I had no
reason to be nervous. I can’t say enough about how much my husband and I
appreciated and loved every person that we came in contact with during our
experience. I literally dont have one negative thing to say about our
experience. Every single step of the way we felt incredibly informed about our
choices and what to expect. In October of 2011 I found out I was pregnant. I’m
writing this review now 2 1/2 years later because I still think about everyone
at Main Line Fertility and how incredibly blessed we were to have the experience
we did with them. We now have an 18 month old perfect and crazy little boy. I
remember our first meeting with Dr. Glassner he said to us that there is a
reason we have not gotten pregnant yet and we won’t know what that reason is
until we meet our child, and he was right because I cant imagine having any
child other than our son. This is the kind of comfort we got every single time
we met with anyone, regardless if the news was good or bad. My advice to anyone
who is having issues conceiving is to see Dr. Glassner. What my husband and I
were anticipating being an awful experience turned into one of the best
experiences of our lives mostly in part to Dr. Glassner and the wonderful people
surrounding him. Thank you all a year and a half later for our little boy. We
still think of all of you often and are so very appreciative for everything you
did for us. You changed our lives forever.” KP (2-17-14)
“I absolutely loved working with this team of people at Main Line Fertility.
They were compassionate, understanding, and easy to speak to about questions or
concerns. We ended up with one baby girl on our first IVF Cycle. We are so
blessed to have met and worked with Dr. Orris and his team. We will forever be
grateful for the beautiful gift that is our daughter Emma Mae. Thank you from
the bottom of our hearts! ” DJT 1-30-14
” I can’t thank Dr. Glassner enough for the gift of our son. After going to
another doctor at a reputable fertility practice and having four failed IUIs and
three failed IVF cycles, I finally decided that a second opinion was worth a
shot. I was not willing to give up our pursuit of parenthood. My husband and I
were in the “unexplained” category — the other practice could never figure out
why all our attempts had failed. Upon our initial consult, Dr. Glassner took my
thick file of medical records home with him and promptly called me the next
morning with a plan of action. That was in October 2012 and in February 2013 I
learned that I was pregnant after one IVF cycle. Dr. Glassner had mixed up my
protocol and medications and it was just what we needed to get a grade A embryo
on transfer day. My son was born just two weeks ago and I can’t believe what a
miracle he is. We are beyond thrilled. There is nothing worse than the
uncertainty and heartbreaking sadness of infertility. Even if you think you have
tried everything, please don’t give up. I really didn’t think I would ever be a
mom, but thanks to Dr. Glassner I finally am.” T.K. 11-30-13
“Our fertility journey never seems to reach a final destination point! After 10
long years of trying naturally and with the help of fertility treatment and
medication and not one single pregnancy we were beginning to doubt if we would
ever achieve a pregnancy.. Thankfully then we met Dr Glassner at Mainline
Fertility, after an initial consultation and reviewing our history closely he
made us feel that we still had a chance and he could help us. My hubby and I
both liked his approach, he doesn’t waste any time and gets down to the point,
without pressuring you as a couple. He helps you stay focused and keep
positive. He suggested we try a cycle of IVF (this would be my 3rd) my previous
attempts had failed and in the last round none of my eggs fertilized, so we were
really nervous. We still went ahead with IVF and even with a very low AMH level
I produced 19 eggs! All grade A’s. Out of which 13 fertilized, we were amazed.
After a 5 day transfer we achieved our very first pregnancy!! Unfortunately at
approx. 7 weeks I miscarried, however, the fact that I achieved a pregnancy was
so uplifting and is now keeping me hopeful to try again with our frozen lil
embies 🙂 I wanted to explain all of this in detail as it’s all thanks to Dr
Glassner and all the staff nurses and receptionists at both Paoli & Bryn
Mawr, they are absolutely awesome and each hospital visit is a comfortable one,
they talk to you and care about you, in particular Margi who is super lovely 🙂
If you are considering any fertility related treatment I would definitely
recommend Mainline Fertility. I’m keeping hopeful and fingers crossed will become
preggers again! Best of luck to all of you who read this” 🙂 C.B.D. 11-13-13
“Thank you Dr. Glassner and the entire nursing staff for a wonderful experience during a not so wonderful time. I went to Dr. Glassner after two coworkers recommended him and after I had been TTC for 1 year. After seeing a different
doctor who told me I was. “Crazy” and “needed to relax” Dr. Glassner was able
to give me the medical answers I was looking for. I was diagnosed with PCOS
after having suffered a previous miscarriage. Dr. Glassner told me he would
have me pregnant within 1 year and he delivered! After 4 months under his care I
was finally pregnant and am nearing the end of my first trimester. I would tell
anyone TTC or just looking to rule out any issues to go see Dr. Glassner.
Thanks again!” 10-21-13 SK
We started out fertility treatment in July 2012. We have unexplained fertility
and could not get pregnant with our second child (first child is 8yrs old), one
miscarraige in 2010. We started off doing clomid for two months with IUI and no
luck 🙁 we started doing injections with timed intercourse. February 2013 we
were on our third round of injectables and I got a positive pregnancy test! Now,
I am 37weeks with a little girl! I loved my crazy emotional experience with Main
Line Fertility. I want to thank the Staff & Dr. Glassner who helped us make
our dreams come true. (10-20-13) JM
“Love you guys thanks Dr Orris and the whole team . The six months I was there, and it
went with ease due to the friendliness of the staff. Thanks a lot. Our baby ,
Sidaarth (Sid ) was born on 18th August .” (Oct 1, 2013) D.S.
“Words cannot express how grateful my husband and I are for Dr. Glassner and the
nursing staff. We had tried for a couple of years at a different facility and
when deciding to move on to IVF, this was the only place I trusted. The staff
was exceptional, patient, caring and always answered all of my questions (I had
a ton :-). Dr. Glassner was the first doctor to sit down and explain what the
issues were and was committed to helping us achieve a healthy pregnancy. He
cares about you as a person and will advise you on what is best for you. I
didn’t respond to my first round of IVF and was advised to not go through with
the full process. I really appreciated that because it showed they really did
care about me and respected the financial burden. We went through two more
rounds and miscarried with both but Dr. Glassner gave us the hope and
information we needed to give it another try. We did and I am happy to report I
am 20 weeks and our little boy is due in Feb 2014. If it were not for Dr.
Glassner and the amazing nurses, we would not be expecting this miracle. We will
always be eternally grateful and there really are no words that can
approapriately thank them. Our dreams have come true and we couldn’t be
happier!” (9-30-13) HB
We have been to many IVF centers in the past 12 years of our infertility journey, and the Main Line staff far surpasses anything we’ve ever seen! (8-30-13) D.P.
We would highly recommend Main Line Fertility to anyone! We could not be happier with Dr. Glassner and his staff. They all have showed compassion and care throughout this whole process. Dr. Glassner started with a plan and made sure we were comfortable. They are very accommodating and we were lucky to have success early on. We will be forever grateful to Dr. Glassner and his staff!

Well, what can i say aboutt my experience with MLF, we wanted to have baby from the time we got married in 2005, we moved to PA and we were recommended to see Dr orris by our OBGYN, I still remember, we started seeing Dr orris in the month of Sep 2006 and then we started going every month for the IUI, i was only able to afford IUI because my insurance would cover only diagnostics, she got pregnant in 2007 and we were happy, but that was short lived as my wife miscarried at 12 weeks , we were devastated, by 2008 we were tired of IUI and went to IVF, but my wife could not take it any more, her body was rejecting all the meds she was taking, she used to throw up every 3 hours after eating, i could not watch her go thru it, we were both emotionally and financially broke as the IVF did not work , but we had frozen 3 embryos for next cycle, so in 2009 we gave a shot at frozen cycle, she got pregnant this time but from the start the pregnancy did not look good, Dr orris was very sorry for this and made me understand from the start that this was not going to be a viable pregnancy and my wife miscarried at 8 weeks again, at this point in time we did not know what to do in life, but worst is yet to come to, we stopped trying for a while and did not worry abt anything and lost all hopes we will ever have a baby in our lives, 2010 went by and come 2011 she gets pregnant naturally this time we were really surprised as this was unexpected, but we were devastated again this time, it was a bigger one, it was ectopic pregnancy and she had to be given Methatrexide, at this point what would anybody do in life, so in 2012 we made a decision to go to IVF and get this over forever, we had decided if we dont get it this time, we are done for good , probably look to adopt a girl child, Step in Dr orris and i think at this point in time even he felt he needs to get this over:), we had only 4 embryo’s after the day one of retrieval and Dr orris suggested we put in all the 4 and see what happens,! yes what happens next is a miracle, we found out we were having twins but were very cautious due to her history, but Dr orris and Staff at mainline were very confident that we will pull this off this time, Dr orris said everything looks like a perfect pregnancy this time I would like to extend my special thanks to Debra, OMG she is an angel for us, she was always always there for us,we can never forget her till we are on this earth, also nicole, megan and Bree, if not for them we would not be having babies, oh i forgot the most important thing is we now have Twin girls who were born May 2013, they are our world, they are our angels,we have not slept from the time they were born, but who cares, we did not sleep for last 8 years either when were trying for Babies:) G.T. (August 13, 2013)
“Words can not express how much I am thankful for Dr. Glassner and his staff. I started seeing Dr. Glassner in November 2010 and was with the practice for 2 years. In this time I conceived 4 times, 3 ending in miscarriages including one with a set of twins at 18 weeks. Dr. Glassner never gave up on me conceiving and delivering a healthy baby. He encouraged me to keep trying and push forward. On May 21, 2013 I welcomed my son into this world! My husband and I could not be more thankful for all of main line fertility’s help. I especially want to thank Marg who helped me along this journey by answering all my questions and reassuring me that it would all work out. Your words of encouragement made me smile on my darkest days. Also the entire IVF staff made me feel comfortable. Especially Peg who spent extra time with me when I had questions or things I didn’t understand. My husband and I are already talking about #2, we will sure be back to see Dr. Glassner. Thank you for making ur dreams come true! “Love, KZ (6-6-13)
“My wife and I were struggling to have a baby for more than a year. It was a huge emotional roller coaster for us – to keep trying with no success. We decided to see Dr. Glassner for help. Dr. Glassner and the team of nurses at mainline clinic made us feel warm and helped us through this phase. We saw Dr. Glassner for 4-5 months and finally decided to go for IUI. Dr. Orris performed the IUI and we had success in the very first attempt. We are now blessed with a 4 month old angel. Life now feels complete – thanks to Dr. Glassner, Dr. Orris and the wonderful team at Paoli and Bryn Mawr” A.R. and A.S. (6-3-13)
There are not enough words to express how amazing Dr. Glassner, all of the nurses and administrative staff are at Main Line Fertility. I have never felt more comfortable, accepted, loved and encouraged in my life. Infertility is such an emotional rollercoaster to travel and if you do not have the right doctor, you will not succeed, but with Main Line Fertility, everyone is perfect. Everyone is always helpful and will always answer any question you have. In the time I have been seeing Dr. Glassner I have never been able to come up with one complaint, even the wait time is incredible. I have never waited more than 15 minutes, even on a holiday. Everything about this practice is perfection. Dr. Glassner is wonderful! He will do everything in his power to get you pregnant and if you are not comfortable with something, he will explain it further or move on to another option. He is caring, generous and his heart is in the right place to get each and every one of his patients the wonderful gift of a child! His bedside manner is fabulous! He makes you laugh, when you are sad and about to shed tears. He always finds a way to help! Dr. Glassner is not your normal, everyday, dry doctor that sees you for two seconds and leaves the room. He is busy, but he still answers all of your questions, thoroughly examines all situations with all individual patients and will always spend the time needed with everyone. I could not have asked for a more incredible doctor. The nurses…to sum it up into one word…WOW! I have been hugged so many times and respected every time I have been to all three offices. Every one of the nurses are caring and supportive. They always take the time to answer any question about medicine, follicles, etc. One in particular stood out to me every time, Margi, I love her. She is the best nurse I have ever dealt with in my life. She is the most caring nurse and will do anything for you and will listen every time you are upset or frustrated no matter what. Even the IVF team is perfect! They are like family and care so much about every one of their patients. I always have way too many questions and it did not matter every time I came in with my list. They spent every minute they needed to with you. They make you feel comfortable and make sure you understand every step of the IVF process. The IVF office is in Bryn Mawr and it is incredible. I was amazed and could have not asked for a better environment. The ultrasound team is also very helpful, in that no matter how many times you ask, “how many follicles do I have or what size are they,” they always take the time to answer your questions. They all just truly do care and want everyone to get their baby! Even the administrative team is considerate. They always spend the necessary time to answer all of your questions. Even when you leave the doctor and there are always questions you realize you meant to ask, they will always find the answer for you. They pay special attention to help each and every patient, no matter how much time it takes. Main Line Fertility is the best! Dr. Glassner is foremost the greatest doctor you will ever have and we are all lucky that he practices! Fertility needs the leading doctors and they have the best one…Dr. Glassner! He has an unbelievable, supportive staff that couldn’t be any better! My family and I thank you all for all of your love, support, encouragement and most of all, my wonderful baby. No questions asked, I would recommend Dr. Glassner and his team to anyone. K.G. (4-18-13)
After conceiving my first child so quickly, and even a second quick conception that I miscarried, I never imagined I would face secondary infertility. The experience was physically and emotionally taxing, especially when people who know nothing about the experience assume that your inability to conceive again is due to stress, or any other false, ignorant- but well meaning- assumption. Dr. Glassner immediately told me he knew he would get me pregnant. Even after my failed IUIs, and when we started IVF, he maintained that reassuring stance. He was right! I delivered a beautiful, healthy daughter in October 2012. Every single employee at Main Line Fertility treated me with such high and quality levels of care. Never did I feel stupid or awkward, which can be very common in such a vulnerable situation. Thank you to Main Line Fertility, especially Dr. Glassner, Peg, Sharon, and every other person who works there. You felt like surrogate family members as you guided me and my husband through the process. My family now feels complete, and the burden that my miscarriage and secondary infertility placed on my well-being feels lightened. J.S. (4-11-13)
We saw Dr. Glassner for 1.5 yrs. He had an excellent approach through the whole journey. He used scientific testing & his medical knowledge; but he LISTENED intently to my explanation of my whacky mentrual cycle. NO OTHER DR. had EVER done that. Dr. Glassner & his staff approached our fertility treatments and condition with sensitivity to us as married people; our morals; & financial efficiency. They listened to our concerns; gave us our options; & let us decide what was right for us. I can’t thank the staff enough for their personal encouragement when my veins became calloused; I got frustrated; & it all just got a tad bit harder. They were all great. We had 1 miscarriage & ultimately conceived triplets via IVF. 1 of our triplets had an issue w/ the placenta & was ultimately lost, but Dr. Glassner referred us to appropriate specialists & stuck w/ us as moral support through the miscarriage & loss of the triplet. He stuck w/ us through the good, the bad, the glad, & the sad. He & his staff followed up w/ us even after my healthy twins were born …& when by some miracle, I conceived AGAIN…ON MY OWN!! They were all so happy for us. Dr. Glassner & staff were my medical staff leading to the birth of my healthy twins. They will forever be considered friends. After 7 years, I still send a birthday update letter w/ a picture. I believe Dr. Glassner & his staff are still happy to receive it & read it…. C.H. (3-13-13)
My husband and I will be eternally grateful to Dr. Glassner and the wonderful IVF nurses at Mainline Fertility! We have unexplained infertility, and decided to start IVF in April 2012. The road was long and bumpy for us, but if it hadn’t been for Dr. Glassner’s optimism and excellent bedside manner, we would have quit too soon. He gave both of us hope, when we had none left. I became pregnant on our 3rd IVF attempt, and we are now expecting a perfectly healthy set of of boy/girl twins! In fact, our twin girl’s name middle name will be Hope, because we used to say all our hope was in Dr. Glassner, and thanks to him, we will have our little Hope and her brother in July! I also can’t say enough good things about the compassionate IVF nurses, especially Nina and Peg, to whom I cried on more than one occasion, and they always took the time to listen. I was so touched by how excited they nurses were when I finally became pregnant, it made me feel like I wasn’t just another patient. Infertilty is such a hard journey to be on, but having finding the right doctor and clinic certainly makes the process a bit easier. I truly believe that the compassion and level of personal patient care at Mainline Fertility is unmatched by other fertility clinics in the area. J.J. (3-11-13)
My husband and I are so grateful to Dr. Orris, the nurses at the West Chester and Paoli offices and the IVF team in Bryn Mawr. After trying to get pregnant for over a year, we sought out Dr. Orris who was able to quickly diagnose and correct two birth defects in my uterus and cervix. When we did not get pregnant after the surgeries, Dr. Orris suggested that we enroll in one of the IVF studies. Although I wasn’t sure that I could handle everything that comes with IVF, I trusted Dr. Orris when he told me this would be the fastest and most cost-effective way for us to get a baby. I’m thrilled to say that he was 100% right. The first round of IVF worked, and I am now beginning my second trimester! We were also able to freeze two embryos, so we’ll be seeing Dr. Orris again in a couple years. Although I’m relieved to be a “normal” pregnant lady now and under the care of my OB, I truly miss everyone at MLF and the sensitive, caring and personalized attention they always provided. I *highly* recommend MLF. A.L (1-15-13)
It’s hard to believe that our two tiny twin miracles will be ONE on 2/8/13!!! My husband and I cannot even express our gratitude towards Dr. Pfeffer and the ENTIRE staff at MLF!! After an unexpected ectopic pregnancy, I was referred to MLF by my OB/GYN…thank God :)!! Dr. Pfeffer was able to give me a reason for fertility issues and it was like a weight lifted off of me! I also liked his “game plan,” he did everything in small steps; so the whole process was not overwhelming. The MLF team felt like family, I actually enjoyed going to every appointment, hoping & praying for that grand prize. Well, finally after a few failed IUI’s & a spontaneous miscarriage, in July of 2011, we were thrilled (and a bit in shock), with the news of TWINS :)!! Please don’t give up…it will happen for you…Dr. Pfeffer, the nurses & staff will do everything in their power to make you dreams come true!! Ours sure did, two perfect little boys :)!! LMM 1-15-13
The staff at MLF gave me the gift of life. When I first went there I was convinced I would never have children. When I said this to Dr. Orris he reassured me that was not the case. He looked at my medical info as well as my husband’s and put us on a plan right away. I got pregnant on my second IUI. It took four months for me to get pregnant under Dr. Orris’ care. All the staff at MLF are very knowledgable and helpful. I am so happy I came here! Our little one is due to arrive 8/13/13 (my birthday!!!) Thank you, MLF! SS (1-10-13)
After numerous years of trying unsuccessfully to have a second child (and after 2 miscarriages) my husband and I decided that [our previous] fertility was not working for us. They had no answers nor did they suggest any other options other than IVF. Never once did they do any tests nor blood work on me. After our initial meeting with Dr. Glassner I underwent more tests and blood work than I thought possible. With only a 15% chance of pregnancy with 100mg of clomid (my lady time of being able to take it) I discovered that I was pregnant! I was only a patient of Dr. Glassner’s for 1 and a half months! We now have a beautiful 2 and a 1/2 year old daughter! We know we would not have her if it wasn’t for him. I also have numerous friends who have gone to him and now have beautiful children as well!

Matthew will turn 15 this February 8th! Unbelieveable to think it’s been that long. I had Hodgkin’s lymphoma and needed chemo in 1995. Oncologist recommended sperm banking prior to chemo. A few years later, we decided to try, did a few cycles of artificial insemination that didn’t work. Switched to IVF and Carol got pregnant on the first try, although it wasn’t totally uneventful. On the egg retrieval, Carol had trouble waking up from being under, and they did an emergency page, filled the room with doctors and crash paddles in seconds….very scary when you’re trying to create a life….but it all turned out perfectly. We still have the silver spoon. Would love to email some pictures of Matt. Thank you Dr. Glassner! Pete & Carol PMW, CLW (12-22-12)
Thanks to Dr. Glassner and the Almighty above, my husband and I have a 4 month old happy and healthy baby girl after 8 years of infertility. We tried everything: acupuncture, dietary changes,and speaking with a variety of reproductive endocrinologists. The REs we spoke with were so clinical and impersonal which was the last thing we needed given the emotional turmoil of infertility. Finally after years of searching, we received a referral to Dr. Glassner. It was worth the hassle of having an out of state RE given how caring, compassionate, kind, and professional Dr. Glassner is. I remember our fist consultation. He reassured us that he would do everything we could and Hashem (GOD) would do the rest. The first treatment involved 3 embryos being implanted. None of them took. I remember speaking with Dr. Glassner and he reassured me that it was not my fault. The second treatment also met with failure. One of the nurses I called was so sympathetic. She encouraged me saying, “Persistence pays off.” Indeed persistence did pay off as the third try with one remaining frozen embryo yielded success. The last transfer I remember feeling so relaxed. Dr. Glassner explained everything he was doing and told me I did very well. 9 days later I took a pregnancy test and saw two faint lines. After I called the IVF nurse she was very cautious and encouraged me to wait a few days more. Finally the 2 week wait was over, and we had the desired HCG levels! My husband and I cannot thank Dr. Glassner and his staff enough. As many patients as they have, I felt we received such individual care and attention. Everyone was so invested in us becoming parents. And our dream finally came true. IK (11-25-12)
I would like to take this time to thank the entire staff at Main Line Fertility, especially Dr. Glassner, for the warm and gentle care they offered me and my husband during this difficult time in our lives. My husband and I were trying to conceive for a year when we ventured into Main Line Fertility in May of this year. We immediately loved the care we were given and I immediately took to Dr. Glassner. He is very in tune with women’s feelings and has the best bedside manner. After many preliminary tests, we did one round of IUI and then after that failed Dr. Glassner suggested we advance to IVF since our medical coverage allowed it. Everything was explained to us in detail prior to us starting. Our first round failed but Dr. Glassner used all the information he learned about my cycle to his advantage and he changed our protocol for the second cycle and low and behold we got pregnant!! Even better, we got pregnant with twins!! Both our embryos implanted! My husband and I could not be happier being that we wanted two kids in life. After only 5 months of being a patient at MLF, I am 6 weeks pregnant with twins and due on 6/26/13. I would recommend this practice to ANYONE who has trouble conceiving and definitely recommend Dr. Glassner as their doctor!!” DS (11-7-12)
“IM PREGNANT!! My husband and I are floating on cloud nine with this great news. We want to truly thank Dr. Glassner and all of the staff at MLF. They gave us hope at a time when we were completely hopeless. After our 2008 miscarriage we struggled with becoming pregnant, but after 2 cycles of IUI with Clomid we are currently 5 weeks pregnant! So for all of you out there who feels as though you hit a brick wall with concieving a child, know without a doubt you found yourself at the right place…Main Line Fertility!!” PG (10-24-12)
“I wanted to take a second and thank you for meeting with Zack and I yesterday. We finally have hope back in our lives because of you, Dr. Glassner, and all the staff at Main Line. We left feeling as a weight had been lifted off of our shoulders. We can not even wrap our heads around the compassion and generosity we were shown yesterday. I left the last office in tears of despair and yesterday I left with a huge smile and happy tears. We are so happy we made the trip and met the amazing team at Main Line. Thank you so very much for all your help. It was truly an amazing experience for us. !” 10-1-12 E.M. and Z.M. from Lock Haven, PA
“My wife and I had been trying to get pregnant on our own unsuccessfully -causing us much heartache. Our path, however, brought us to Dr. Glassner’s door. We were unsure what to expect from the initial consultation. We sat down with the doctor and noticed right away he had the perfect balance of compassion, professionalism, humor and candidness. For a long time my wife had been so hard on herself and Dr. Glassner made that disappear in an instant – to be replaced with purpose and direction. The Doctor laid out our options clearly and when we asked him to explain something he broke it down into laymen terms. The Doctor, as with every appointment, took time with us and answered any questions we had. Every step of the way we felt like he was there. As many know, the IVF process involves many office visits and with each visit we met multiple nurses, who were (and I can’t stress this enough) absolutely wonderful. They offered my wife smiles on good days and hugs and tears on bad days. They were so compassionate and helpful. We ended up doing two retrievals and then a transfer – which to our great surprise provided us with a beautiful healthy baby boy. It brings tightness to my chest to think without advances in technology and without this clinic we may not be holding our little miracle in our arms each night. Thank goodness we found the main line fertility clinic! If I can offer anyone who is looking for fertility help some pieces of advice, this is what I would say: Don’t feel ashamed or blame yourself, do be proactive and for crying out loud make an appointment with Dr Glassner. Not only will you get a top notch, friendly and professional doctor but a team of nurses who bring a whole new meaning to brilliance. A very happy and appreciative husband and father.” S and A (September 25, 2012)
“There are not enough words to express my thanks to Dr. Glassner and the staff at Main Line Fertility. After losing a tube in 2008 to Ectopic Pregnancy, and have been trying to get pregnant for three years and was unable. I was sent to Dr. Glassner by Dr. Grover from Delaware County Memorial Hospital in December of 2011. We started our journey of IVF but had no success after the first try. Dr. Glassner, being a compassionate, caring, involved, knowledgeable, and a great human. Encouraged us not to give up instead he told us that he will not give up on us, than decided to try other medication. With the new medication and our second try, we got pregnant in February of 2012 with our second son. We are now due in November and so happy for our second chance of being parents and all thanks to God first than Dr. Glassner, Dr. Glover and the team at Main Line Fertility.” MT and JT (9-14-12)
“I was a patient of another fertility clinic and doctors there were not too optimistic due to combination of my advanced maternal age and my partner’s advanced age. I got a “some people just do not work “together” explanation of a failed IVF/ICSI round with fertilization rate of barely 27% (27% “survivals” were graded poorly – B- and C). A friend of mine who was undergoing unsucessful infertility treatment at the same clinic, performed an indepth online research and went to see Dr. Glassner. She had a diagnosis in 10 days and child (daughter) in 9 months. I went through 2 rounds of IVF with Dr. Glassner – first round did not work and Dr. Glassner modified methodology/protocol before we repeated the treatment(second embryo transfer was performed by Dr. Orris on 8/5/2012). I am a mother at 43, I have a beautiful baby girl (9lbs at birth, absolutely healthy). She is 4.5 months now , almost 19 lbs and talks non stop. I do not believe in miracles, but I believe in good science (I am a scientist myself). Main Line fertility has great doctors and great laboratory/IVF staff. Great work, great science. Thank you, all.” SM (9-10-12)
“I cannot thank Main Line Fertility enough for your care and compassion during our infertility journey! After years of treatments, you never let us lose hope, and we have our miracle daughter as a testimony to your tireless efforts. My husband and I will always be in your debt, Dr. Orris and staff. Thank you again.” MJ (9-4-12)
“I have meant to take the time and sit down and write about what a gift that Mainline Fertility has been to my husband and I for quite some time…After being in a differnet fertility practice for 2+ years with no results (and not a lot of empathy from my physician at the time), I turned to Mainline Fertility through a friends’ recommendation. I have never been more grateful for any other decision! the IVF team of RN’s, NP’s, and embryologists were consummate professionals while remaining beautiful, caring human beings at every encounter. Being in the healthcare field myself I was constantly impressed by the compassion and knowledge base of the entire staff. But I have to say that of all the wonderful staff members at Mainline Fertility the best was my doctor, Dr. Michael Glassner. Dr. Glassner is not only a top notch physician and expert in his field, but he is truly the definition of what a doctor should be–caring, compassionate, involved, knowledgable, and an all-around great human being! There was never a question too dumb, or a situation where I was not comfortable in knowing that Dr. Glassner would be there for us. Our first child is due 10/30/12, a girl, and we are truly grateful to Mainline Fertility for this miracle. We look forward to working with the IVF team and Dr. Glassner for a second child in the future…” S.E.E. (8-1-12)
“The OBGYN said try for a year, around month 10 we got impatient and scheduled an appointment with Main Line Fertility and Dr. Glassner. We found out the day before Christmas Eve 2011 we were pregnant. From our first visit, they had us pregnant in 5 months! We mainly saw Dr. Glassner and also saw Dr. Orris, we were confident in both and loved the caring staff as well. We learned so much and are grateful for their entire team. My wife is due in September with our baby girl and we would not rule out working with them for baby #2 when and if the time comes. We are so furtunate to be associated with Main Line Health. S.C. and M.C. (7-29-12)
“I am a new patient here at MLF, but I feel so confident in the doctors and nurses. My husband and I have been trying to concieve since 2008 since our miscarriage. Within a week, the doctor identified on why we are not getting pregnant! Reading the stories of others and our journey thus far, I know with any doubt we will be parents really soon!!” C.B. (7-17-12)
“I visited with Dr. Glassner. My Husband and I were very pleased with our visit. He was very warm and made you feel comfortable. We both agreed with his plan, since we do already have a child together. I am excited and look forward to our future with Main Line fertility.” J.D. 7-6-12
“THANK VERY MUCH TO DR. JOHN ORRIS AND STAFF THAT MADE POSSIBLE TO CHANGE MY LIFE. WE HAVE A BEAUTIFUL SON NAMED JONATHAN, AND I THANK GOD AND THE DOCTOR EVEY DAY OF MY LIFE ….” J.A.S. (6-24-12)
“My husband and I can not thank Dr Glassner and the staff at MLF enough for the experience we had in their care. Last year, at almost 34 years old, having tried for almost a year to get pregnant on our own, we had our first appointment with MLF. We intially had an introduction meeting and right afterwards had a chemical pregnancy on our own. We waited a few months and then went back to Dr Glassner, realizing that it just was not working. We did three rounds of IUI’s, two with clomid, with no results. I will always remember the day I got a call from Dr Glassner telling me that he was recommending we advance to IVF. We took some time to think about it and weight our options and then decided to move forward. I am now 12 weeks pregnant after one round of IVF with ICSI. The whole process was very smooth and the IVF staff try to be as accomodating as possible and really hold your hand during the process. It was much less intimidating once we started the process. We never imagined it would take IVF to expand our family but we are so thankful we had the option and such a great resource in MLF right in our neighborhood. I am now officially moved over to my Ob/Gyn and we will miss everyone at Main Line Fertility. Can not wait to share baby photos with them come Jan 1,2013, my due date.” A.D.S. (6-16-12)
“I have been meaning to write this email for a while now. I just want to thank you, from the bottom of my heart for all of your work with the egg freezing program and all of your help along the way answering my questions. From what I understand there probably would be no egg freezing program if it wasn’t for your work. And that means I probably would not have a daughter right now, and my family would be a lot different. We had retrieved 15 eggs, ICSI’d 5 and frozen 9. I was 38 at the time of retrieval and knew my chances were not that great but thought we would give it one last try. The first fresh cycle failed. We defrosted 5 eggs and ICSI’d them and it worked, I got pregnant with a girl. We already had a boy from over a years worth of consecutive cycles of Clomid and injectibles with IUI. The baby was born healthy and happy last November and is doing great. I really can’t say enough good things about Main Line Fertility and feel I was very fortunate that you offer egg freezing. I’m sure you know there are not many clinics that offer it. We would not have moved forward with IVF without the option of freezing eggs. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.” (6-11-12)
“Thanks to all at mainline fertility practice. We went through the injectible cycles for a few times then moved on to IVF. we got lucky and positive on the second ivf cycle. We appreciate all that you did for us.” P.S. (5-22-12)
“After reading these testimonials it gives me hope that I will be as lucky as all of you, its been a long hard struggle but I hope it will pay off in the end.” Tiffany (5-9-12)
“My husband and I tried for 3 years to pregnant with no luck. After 2 years of trying, we found out we were pregnant. Unfortunately, it was not a viable pregnancy, and we had to terminate it. We tried for another year, and we were about to give up. A friend of mine recommended the doctors and the staff at Main Line Fertility, and I will be forever grateful. We went through 3 rounds of IUI before it finally worked. I just gave birth to perfect little boy on 03/24/12, and my husband and I couldn’t be happier. Everyone, including the doctors and the nurses, were so friendly and so pleasant to be around, it made the countless visits to the office a little more bearable. I will recommend Main Line Fertility to everyone I know that is going through what my husband and I went through.” SAD (4-20-12)
“While it was certainly not an easy journey everyone at Main Line Fertility was dedicated to educating us about infertility, following up, and explaining next steps. As we moved through different stages of treatment for unexplained infertility we gained a little more information each time, and were able to see progress. It took 2 years, but with persistance, and complete trust in the staff and MLF we are expecting our little girl any day now. They are the very best!” SDG (4-12-12)
“I was diagnosed with PCOS 13 years ago, after 10 years and going to various doctors with having no luck getting pregnant I found Main Line Fertility. My husband and I are forever in debt to MLF for blessing us with our beautiful daughter 12/27/08. The Dr’s and staff are so helpful and caring while going thru the very emotional process of conceiving. I have and will continue to recommend Main Line Fertiltiy to anyone that is needing help with conceiving, they are truly amazing. I plan on using them again to help conceive our 2nd child in the future.” AFL (3-20-12)
“I will never be able to say enough or thank the staff at Main Line Fertility enough. My doctor and all the nurses took care of me/us and made such an emotional time in our lives seem so positive. After a devastating loss very early on in a pregnancy, we went through IUI and fertilized one beautiful, perfect egg. Our daughter was born on January 4th, 2012 and could not be more perfect. She is an absolute miracle and such a blessing to us. The nursing staff at MLF were always so nurturing and reassuring. The frequent appointments were made so much easier seeing their positive, smiling faces. My doctor was a dream come true for me and my husband. He was honest, to the point and always maintained a positive outlook. We owe everything to him.” CDN (3-7-12)
“Today I received the news that I’m expecting after about 10 years of infertility. God has truly used Mainline Fertility to help me conceive. I’ve suffered with severe endometriosis and have a large chocolate cyst. After going to 3 previous RE’s, the doctors and the nurses and staff finally made this miracle happen. I received my first IVF treatment beginning in Oct. 2011, which resulted in this miraculous pregnancy. I truly thank God for allowing my husband to hear about Mainline Fertility on the radio. I want to give a great, big, colossal thanks to Dr. Glassner, Dr. Orris, all the nurses, Embryologist and team, and all the staff at Bryn Mawr. I’m so ecstatic right now and encourage anyone struggling with infertility to visit this facility.” RH (2-29-12)
“I can’t give enough praise for Main Line Fertility. The IVF nurses have been wonderful to me. I am on my 3rd IVF and have a wonderful baby girl and we are trying for a second. I went back for my 3rd IVF (which I am doing now) after a few years absence and the nurses welcomed me back with open arms and were/are so friendly. As for my doctor, I cannot say enough. He is the best around. So skilled and talented with a great bedside manner you could not ask for anything more. If you want to get pregnant, he will make it happen. He might not like me saying this but I was with him when he found out a long time patient of his got pregnant and I swore I saw him tearing up with excitement. That was when I knew I was with the right doctor. Going into this IVF, I am feel so stress free and confident that the doctors and the nurses are going to make this work for my husband and I. Thanks to all at Main Line Fertility for your hard work, patience, determination and dedication to those of us who have fertility challenges. You are all truly wonderful.” CMM (February 15, 2012)
“What a nice new website! I am so glad I am able to give a testimonial because I just can’t give enough thanks to Mainline Fertility and their staff. We decided to give my doctor a call after having a pretty devastating first IVF cycle with another doctor. My doctor was very compassionate about our first experience and assured us he would do everything he could to help us not only get through the process but also get pregnant. After the second try with Mainline Fertility, we are now blessed with a beautiful 5 month old baby girl, Riley! We drove an hour and half to and from Bryn Mawr at least 3 days a week and it was worth every second. The staff of nurses had very positive and happy energy, which was more than important during such an emotional journey. My husband and I felt the support from the staff throughout the entire process. My doctor is an extremely intelligent, honest doctor that is very positive which we enjoyed so much! I really felt that he closely followed our case and was genuinely interested in the outcome. I’ll never forget the day he followed us into the room for the pregnancy blood work to be done asking if I had taken a test prior. He gave us a little leap of happiness and lots of hugs when I expressed the positive results (meanwhile I was wincing because I thought he would yell at me for taking the test)! Words are not enough in terms of giving thanks to all of you for assisting us in bringing a life into this world. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and honestly, not a day will go by that I don’t look at her and am reminded how she got here!!” – J.S. and S.S. (December 28, 2011)
“My doctor and the MLF staff are flexible and they adjust their schedules to meet your needs. My doctor has a great bedside manner and is sensitive to your personal and financial situation. I had PGD with IVF and am happy to say I am 15 weeks and it is all thanks to my doctor and MLF! My case felt hopeless, but he gave me hope! ” – M.H. (December 26, 2011)
“My husband and I are patients with the IVF. The nurses that we encountered at the Mainline Fertility Center in Bryn Mawr, PA; are the best. We did the IVF three times, and each time received excellent care and treatment. All the nurses are fantastic, but would like to send a special thanks to Anne and Karen. They helped make this time a much more pleasant experience.” – L.C. (October 7, 2011)
“I had my first visit with the West Chester office today. I have to say the staff was excellent!! They really make you feel comfortable, and takes the time to explain every little detail. I am very confident I have chosen the right facility. I would highly recommend this facility!! – D.E. (September 15, 2011)
“I wanted to express my gratitude to Main Line Fertility for all they’ve done for my family. After 1 miscarriage and a very long time of trying to have a child, my husband and I came to Main Line Fertility. My doctor was amazing. He was so very patient and willing to do everything he could to help us. After 16 months of medication, all the testing you can imagine, genetic counseling and testing and 3 more miscarriages, we finally became pregnant. Much to our surprise, we were pregnant with twins. Holding our breath each and every day hoping that both babies would stay with us and they did. The pregnancy was very difficult only because of our past and our hesitation to fully embrace the girls until we could hold them in our arms. Our beautiful daughters were born on August 17th, 2011 (my birthday as well) at 37 weeks!! They were 5 lbs, 7 oz. and 6 lbs. 4 oz. and are as healthy as can be. At a time in my life when I thought having a family was never going to happen, my doctor and his team came into our lives. Thank you can never express how grateful we are. KD (September 14, 2011)
“As anyone reading this will know, infertility is an emotional roller coaster that can leave you feeling beyond frustrated. My doctor and the nurses at MLF made this journey so much easier. From the moment we met him, he made us feel comfortable. He is compassionate, funny, and incredibly knowledgeable. It is very difficult to laugh in a situation like this, but he had a way of cheering us up on the dreariest days, but never at our expense. As you will see when you start meeting him, he is extremely busy. He has to meet with hundreds of patients each week. We were always surprised that he remembered us and even remembered points of our last conversation, following up on a joke that he may have made a week or so ago. He talks to you as if he were your friend or relative. He tells you what he would do if he were in our situation. We listened to all of his advice and after several grueling years of infertility, we are now 15 weeks pregnant with triplets! It was an odd feeling leaving MLF because we were overjoyed to meet with the doctor who will deliver our babies, but we were sad to leave the doctors and the nurses at MLF. They helped us through one of the most challenging parts of our life and we cannot wait to bring the babies by to meet the staff that helped to bring them into the world. ” MD (Sept 6, 2011)
“After having our daughter naturally, my husband and I tried for 10 months to conceive (unsuccessfully). After 3 failed rounds of IUI, we did IVF. It resulted in only 5 eggs – 4 of which fertilized. 3 embryos made it and all 3 were implanted. I originally was pregnant with twins but at 8 weeks, one of them didn’t make it. Today we have a healthy 3 month old son and he is perfect! Main Line Fertility was wonderful and I would highly recommend them. Very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I would use them again if necessary. Thanks guys!” JT (Sept 6, 2011)
“After having an ectopic pregnancy, I had surgery to remove the damaged tube. The physician discovered that my other fallopian tube was malformed, I was told the chances of me having another ectopic were high. So, I was referred to Main Line Fertility. My doctor was always positive and reassuring after my failed IVFs. We continued to try new things and with his care and knowledge, I have my beautiful 3 month old miracle son. My doctor is a wonderful, caring doctor. Without this, I don’t know if I would have continued. The IVF nurses and entire staff were wonderful. I never felt like I was alone in this process. Thank you to Dr. Orris and the IVF team at MLF! My son is a reminder to all not to give up!” KS (August 22, 2011)
“To the wonderful IVF Monitoring Team: Thank you so much for your kind, efficient care. Every monitoring morning has been a pleasant experience, and your upbeat, friendly smiles made all the difference! I’ve been to a few centers and this group is definitely tops! Thanks so much.” AW (August, 2011)
My doctor at the Main Line Fertility Center, and his staff, helped my daughter go through the process of freezing her eggs . She was unaware of the newest technology ,and that this was a possibility for her. She was thrilled to participate in this process. My doctor was kind, patient, reassuring, and compassionate throughout this procedure. His staff treated my daughter with care that made her feel that they were so interested in her as a person, not just a statistic. She asked questions and they had knowledge to answer, and got the answers if they needed more information to satisfy her. She felt confident that her decision to go there was the best decision she could have made. I have been under the care of many Doctors and their staff and this was the most profoundly caring practice I have ever seen. I would highly recommend Main Line Fertility Center and would be confident that others would have the same experience. My sincerest thanks to all at this practice. sincerely s.j.c’ (August 2011)
‘What is most assuring to me is that you have helped me to extend my years of fertility. Your kind knowledgeable staff, the caring interested nurses, the fantastic anesthesiogist (I didnt feel a thing), and most of all my doctor. I bless you all for helping me through this very emmotional process. Most woman want to experience motherhood, to feel a life within their bodies, to nurture a life, to care for another. I have been so busy building a career, and the years began to fly by. Now at 37 I am beginning to think about my fertility. I am most fortunate to have met the MLF staff. How wonderful you guys treated me, how comfortable you made me feel, and the possiblity to extend my fertility, ….what can I say but thank you all so very much. Life has strange ways ,and people touch you sometimes in ways you can’t even describe. I have tears in my eyes at how grateful I am. I hope that one day I can recommend you to another grateful woman who will be fortunate enough to come to Main Line Fertility and have the same experience. my best regards always..r.c (August 2011)
“My husband and I had went thru a Blighted Ovum in August 2009. The pregnancy alone was a surprise and when we lost it we wanted a baby more and more. We tried for a good year and never was lucky enough to get a positive pregnancy test. Thru the heartache of wondering if we were ever going to be able to have a baby of our own we turned to Main Line Fertility. Since my confidence was already low to begin with from our loss I was somewhat confident this would work for us. Well, after consulting with MLF in January 2011 they told me that it seems I have trouble ovulating. Who would’ve guessed! They placed me on Clomid January 12th to the 15th and we had intercourse a few days after that (dr’s orders!) and we conceived on January 24th. We couldn’t have done this without the consistent help of MLF. Currently we are 15 weeks and 2 days pregnant! Finding out the sex of our baby in June!” M.K.
“Anyone who has fertility issues I would highly recommend Main Line Fertility. They make you feel so welcome, and comfortable. I’m almost through with IVF and honestly as excited as I am I will be upset when I wont be going there any longer. Thanks for all the support and assistance in every way possible” – M.W.
“Main Line Fertility was an amazingly positive experience. You and your staff are professional, caring people who always took the time to answer questions and console me from time to time. Going through treatments was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done but you made it much easier. After exhausting all kinds of meds and treatments, we settled on IVF and conceived our beautiful twins who just turned 3. You and your staff are always in our thoughts. Thank you for making our dreams come true!” – L.D.
“Main Line Fertility would be a recommendation of mine to anyone who is having trouble or needs assistance conceiving. Our experience was so positive and rewarding. The staff that works in the Paoli office is also amazing. Being a same sex couple, we never felt any different than anyone else in the office. We cannot wait to return in the next year to try for number two!! Thank you to all of you who make dreams come true every day. You are truly amazing people with hearts of gold!!'” – L.T.
“I had a wonderful experience with Main Line Fertility. I had unsuccessfully been trying to conceive my 2nd child for a year and a half when I was referred to Main Line Fertility. They were all so kind and made me at ease during a very difficult time. After 7 months, I conceived twins. My twins are now 3-1/2 years old and are such a joy for my family. We now feel like our family is complete. Every time I speak with someone who is having fertility issues, I refer them to MLF. I have referred 4 people who have since gotten pregnant. I felt like they were part of my family.” – J.B.
“After 4 miscarriages, my husband and I were ready to give up before we decided to seek a second opinion with another specialist. MLF came highly recommended to us and we never regretted our decision to see him. Without their help, we would not be blessed with our 2 beautiful boys who are now 3 1/2 and 9 months old. The staff at MLF are amazingly supportive and selfless. They were so open with us and truly felt like family. I called alot and they always took time to answer my questions and make me feel better and confident. They are the best! We are contemplating baby #3 and you can be sure we will be going to Main Line Fertility. Thank you, Drs. Pfeffer, Glassner, Orris, and Staff.” – H.G.
“I went to Main Line Fertility after five painful years of trying. I was positive that I was never going to be pregnant. But my first month with Main Line Fertility I became pregnant with my beautiful baby girl, now 11 months old. I would recommend them to anyone. I’m sorry I waited so long to go. Everyone was so nice and really supportive.” – K.V.
“Words simply cannot express how grateful we are to MLF. Without their expertise, patience and zeal for their work, we would not have our sweet daughter. We are eternally grateful!!!” – K.W.
“We had a wonderful experience with MLF. As a patient with PCOS, we struggled with trying to conceive. MLF’s wonderful staff confirmed the PCOS diagnosis and I began treatments. After 5 trying and painful months of treatment, we were finally pregnant. One of the hardest days of the pregnancy was when we “graduated” from your care. Thanks to MLF, we are about to celebrate our first holiday season with our little boy. You all are truly a blessing and I would recommend you to anyone struggling with infertility.” – J.C.
“I highly recommend MLF to anyone!!! It took me almost 3 years. I have pcos and went through all of the treatments including IVF and nothing worked. I decided to take off a year and lose weight. After losing 80lbs and going back it only took me 3 cycles and clomid to fall pregnant. I’ve never been so excited and couldn’t have ever made it without the support from MLF. They were always so comforting during this hard time. I finally got pregnant with my daughter in July 09. I lost her when I was 22 weeks along but I plan on going back to see MLF again as soon as I’m allowed to. MLF has the most understanding and comforting Drs. I’ve ever met.” – M.A.
“I would highly recommend Main Line Fertility to anyone. After trying for over 5 years we were blessed with triplets-2 girls and 1 boy. They are now 10 months old and we are getting ready to celebrate their first Christmas. After having unexplained infertility, we had reached our final option of IVF. After the first try, we were pregnant and with instant family. We couldn’t be more grateful for the kindness of MLF and their wonderful staff. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!” – N.D.
“After years of trying to get pregnant, I saw MLF. They tested me and determined that I just needed some help ovulating. 3 months later and I was pregnant with my son. The staff were so helpful and wonderful, and were very supportive and professional who explained every step of the process very clearly to me. I recommend them highly!” – A.H.
“We wanted to thank you and all your staff for being so kind, caring and helpful during one of the most emotional times in our lives. It was an emotional roller coaster filled with so many ups and downs, but in the end we were given the most incredible blessing. We never thought, or at least I didn’t, that we were ever going to get pregnant….Without you and your staff, they could not be here. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.” – N.D.
“In a course of an ordinary workday, some people can change lives. You have done that by enabling us to conceive, and you have allowed me to feel the miracle of a life growing inside my body. Where I was first told that I was anovulatory, I felt my world shatter, my dreams and hopes shattered with my husband disappear, and my instinct was to fight against that pronouncement. I am so thankful that I have found you and your compassionate, thoughtful and gracious nurses and friendly front desk staff to help us wage this war. What we do pales in comparison to your ability to fight nature’s cruelty, instill hope and create miracles and do it all with kindness and humor. Thank you for children to come. Thank you for our hope. Thank you for not letting PCOS win. We will be eternally grateful for everything that you and your staff have done for us.” – D.S.
“Thank you so much for all that you and your nurses did for us throughout our journey to have a baby. Thank you for being there for us through all the ups and downs. You were always there to give us hope for the future and took the time to explain all our options to us. It meant a lot to us to have a doctor who was always so honest and treated us like his own family. Thanks for your patience and perseverance. We have been blessed with a wonderful baby boy.” – M.B.
“My husband and I have been so impressed by your practice and your amazing medical and reception staff. My initial meeting with you and all subsequent meetings have been extremely reassuring, informative, and calming. Every interaction that I have with your staff is a pleasure. They are so comforting and thoughtful. Somehow, despite the many years you have been doing this, you and your staff members have remained fresh, remembering what an emotional and frustrating experience infertility is for your patients. I can’t thank you enough for you kind, patient, understanding approach.” – E.P.
“I’d like to offer you thanks for all of my three grandchildren. I can’t imagine what it would be like without them. They are such precious gifts. Thank you for your part in our blessings. We are most grateful.” – V.F.
“We both wanted to give you extra special thanks for all your help and expertise with helping us conceive our first baby. From the first day we met with you in June 2009, we knew leaving that day that we were in good hands. Not only are you in an expert in the field and truly have a passion for what you do, your personality and bedside manner made us feel so comfortable and confident being in your hands. Trying to have a baby for so long was so emotionally taxing on us and it was until we met with you that we had that hope that it would happen. I only wish that we came to see you sooner! Your staff and you always made us comfortable and we were confident that we would help us get to our dream of having a baby. After 6 months of treatment with you, our dreams came true. To this day, we still count our blessings and can’t believe it is real. We could only wish that we could continue in your care for the full 9 months and have you deliver our baby. We are sad to leave your practice for all the great care you have given us and were really lucky to have met you. We will really miss seeing you of course, but we are happy for the reason we don’t have to come anymore. I can assure you that when we are ready for our second baby, we will be back to see you.” – K.S.
“You are truly a warm and caring doctor, who made me feel at ease and even made me laugh. The same is true for your wonderful staff who showed me warmth and encouragement through the entire process. Everyone always made me feel so welcome and special and I thank them so much for that. Even if things had not turned out as they did, I would have still walked away feeling good about my experience at Main Line Fertility. But, thankfully I did get pregnant and now I so look forward to adding another member to my family.” – H.K.
“Its very hard to think of words to express how grateful we are for all you have done for us. Without your kindness, expertise and patience we wouldn’t be where we are today. You have truly helped to make our greatest dream come true. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you and will miss you. Until we meet up again, take care and we wish you all the happiness in the world” A.R.
“My husband and I can’t say enough positive things about our experience at Main Line Fertility. We had tried for quite some time to get pregnant on our own but were not successful. The doctors at Main Line Fertility discussed our options with us and we came up with a plan. Within a short amount of time, we were pregnant! We gave birth to a beautiful baby boy! We always dreamed of having a child and the doctors at Main Line Fertility helped to make our dream come true! We would also like to add that all of the nurses and staff who worked at MLF were so compassionate and supportive. Now we are thinking about having baby #2 and we have already scheduled our consultation at Main Line Fertility to help us conceive our second child! Thank You!” J.O.
“Thanks to your wonderful practice we are now the proud parents of three beautiful daughters. We appreciate all that you did for us and think of you often.” T.M.
“Thank you so much for playing a part in their journey into the world. You are a very caring doctor and you should feel proud to touch so many lives in such a positive way. We are truly grateful.” B.V.
‘Main Line fertility nurses and ultrasound techs are outstanding people. They give you hope through such a difficult process and encourage you through the many disappointments. We have a beautiful baby girl after many unsuccessful IUIs and 1 successful IVF round. Words can’t express our gratitude!’ M.H.
“There are not enough words to convey our heart felt thanks you have made so many families happy and brought joy to their lives. There is no comparison to your knowledge, expertise along with generosity and politeness. Please accept our thanks and wish you and your family everything best in life” P.B.
“I have been wanting to write you for some time but am actually sitting down to do it now. My daughter just turned one year old and we wanted to thank you for making it the best year of me and my husband’s life! Back in November 2008, you helped us conceive the most beautiful little girl! You were very proactive, kind, and caring! We are so thankful for what you and your staff has done for us! I have been referring so many people with fertility issues to your practice because I know that they will get the same kind of care as we did! Thank you so much for giving us hope and what we really wanted for so long, our daughter! Thanks again to you and your great staff!” – N.R.
“Words cannot even BEGIN to express how grateful and blessed we are that you came into our lives. After surgery and discovering I had Stage IV Endometriosis, my OBGYN recommended that we immediately contact you to get pregnant as quickly as possible. After meeting with the doctor, he determined that because of my endometriosis and my age (39) we immediately go to IVF vs. trying other methods first. On our second IVF cycle we became pregnant with our daughter, now 2. I remember being almost immediately aware that something was different after my implantation and then finding out two weeks later that I was indeed pregnant was just the most emotional feeling of joy ever! Miracles do happen!! After she was born, we decided to move quickly to become pregnant again – since it had been emphasized to us that because the surgery had “cleared up the endometriosis”, it was only a matter of time before it would return. So, she was born in July 2008, by March 2009 we were in for our consult and began our IVF cycle shortly thereafter. On May 1, 2009, my mom’s 70th birthday, I discovered the cycle was a success! Our son was born in Jan 2010! We have been blessed with the “ideal” family – one girl, one boy!! It couldn’t have happened without your help and without the help of my surgeon!!! I am forever grateful to all of you!!! You are the most wonderful people in the world – making miracles happen everyday! I will forever be grateful to you for my daughter and son. Not a day goes by that I don’t look at them and think they are our miracles!!” – K.G.
“MLF treated me back in 1985. My husband and I had our two boys and were happy with that. I had my tubes tied and burned from my OBGYN thinking I didn’t want any more children. Seven years later which was in 1984, MLF was recommended to us because we decided we wanted to try and have another child. Knowing my tubes were totally ruined, I didn’t think I had a chance but I thought I would give it a try. I met with the doctors of MLF, what a wonderful, caring group they are. After all the testing and the surgery which was 5 hours long, the doctor told me I had about a 25-30 percent chance of the surgery working. He called us a few days later and told us he believed the surgery went as well as expected. August of 1985 I found myself pregnant. Not only did the operation work very successfully, but after having two boys already, I found myself pregnant with a little girl. The operation was so successful, not only did I give birth to my miracle daughter in May of 1986, but I found myself pregnant once again in 1991 and gave birth to another baby girl in January of 1992. MLF is the man. We will always be greatful to him. Thank you so much to the MLF doctors. If not for you, I wouldn’t have my two wonderful daughters. Thank you and now I am blessed with my large family, my two boys and my two miracle daughters.” G.S.
“At age 38, with years of trying for a baby behind me. MLF was recommended to me by a family member who said the following, “You must goes see this doctor. Everyone who goes to him gets pregnant.” That was all my husband and I needed to hear. What my family member didn’t mention was MLF’s kindness, sense of humor, sensitivity, his ability of making you feel as if you are the only one. He made my husband feel like a rockstar and gave me a ton of hope, balanced with a hefty dose of realism that showed me he was the real thing. He promised us nothing other than that he would do everything in his power to get us pregnant. I trusted him implicitly and was rewarded! My first IVF transfer and voila, a perfect little bun in the oven. The staff at MLF is just amazing. I found myself looking forward to my appointments (and considering what they entail, that is odd, indeed). From the receptionists office, to the IVF monitoring team, to the IVF nurses and the staff on the “other side” e.g., the side you just cannot wait to be on because it means you’re pregnant. For my retrieval, my husband could not be there because of his work and I was so bummed and nervous, and the IVF nurse just sat with me for 30 minutes and talked and joked with me and was my buddy throughout. I just cannot say enough about my experience and would recommend the practice to anyone with fertility issues. It was so comforting throughout the entire process to know that I was in the absolute best place I could be. Thank you, thank you, thank you! And good luck to everyone who follows!” – K.D.
