    Subject:  Suggestions for a kind place for a mammogram
    Comment:  I've had good experiences with Weill Cornell Imaging, new downtown location on Beekman Street. They have a special mammogram center that is aiming for a more relaxing/gentle experience (to the extent that is possible when someone is mercilessly squeezing your tender parts). Definitely never any confidential medical discussions anywhere but in private.

    Subject:  Need OB referrals
    Comment:  Take a look at Weill Cornell Primary Care Tribeca. Their team of OBs is great and they deliver at NYP LM. Dr. Fridel delivered my first, and Dr. Fong was the on-call when I was in labor. I’ve had other appointments with them both and really like them. My primary OB has been Dr. Peña, but she recently went on maternity leave.

    Comment:  I had a fantastic experience at W-C NYP. The doctors and residents, the L&D nurses, the recovery nurses and lactation consultants - everyone was excellent. I felt very well cared for the whole time. Also, even though it's a "baby friendly" hospital, I never felt pressured to exclusively breastfeed (we combo fed from day 1), to room in with my newborn, or to avoid giving a pacifier.

    Comment:  For maternity care it was good, but my baby was born on a holiday so there was no lactation consultant. The nurses were supportive. The pediatric team was awful, non-communicative and literally as I was walking out the door they were like um... by the way your baby hasn’t gained enough weight and you need formula which set me into a tizzy. The pediatrician experience (particularly with a resident Dr. Patel, but really all of them) was bad enough that I would reconsider giving birth there again. But I loved the other staff so much that I probably would.

    Comment:  Weill Cornell, Dr. Nigel Pereira. They have one of the best labs in the country, and I met women who travelled here from other countries for treatment. I will say that billing and insurance were not as organized as the medical staff, but you’ll probably find that everywhere since insurance/billing issues are pretty systemic.

    Comment:  Review submitted via the Park Slope Parents 2017 Birth SurveyI had a private room to give birth and it was huge and clean. The nurses were lovely and with me at every step. After the birth when I was transferred to a shared room (you can pay for a private room, but it's still on a first come, first serve basis) the nurses were more than happy to help and answer any questions I had.Based on a 8/17 birthing experience.

    Comment:  Weill cornell has some of the best nursing staff I’ve ever encountered- both in labor and delivery and postpartum and pediatric care. Nurses are the ones who are around the most and get things done, and they made some tough postpartum challenges go more smoothly. The facilities themselves are fine (most rooms are shared, limited bathrooms for guests)- but they are building a new women’s center and imagine that will be awesome.Based on a September 2017 birthing experience.

    Comment:  My experience was influenced by the fact that I delivered on a Friday night. This means that I had skeleton (low number and inexperienced) staff for the first 3 days. Consequently, I waited hours in the recovery room, my husband did not get a bed until the next night, I did see the lactation consultant until Monday, and the nurses were not very good. This would all have been better if I had delivered during a week day. That being said. Cornell is an excellent hospital. Everyone is very professional and the entire place is clean and nice. I always felt I was in the best place to deliver my babies. The delivery room was like a hotel suit. Very big, private and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. I will add that the main reason I chose Cornell was for its excellent NICU. I knew as a twin pregnancy that I had a very high chance of having at least one baby in the NICU. One baby was there for nine days and she did great. The nurses were amazing. They were compassionate and very helpful. And they are very accommodating of parents spending time with their babies. The doctors are excellent and they were easy to reach for information about my baby. Overall the NICU was great for my family. Insurance: I had no insurance issuesBased on a 2015 birth.

    Comment:  The best nurses ever! Despite the stereotypes some hold about giving birth in a hospital, I was given all the time I needed for labor to progress, they checked on me as often as I felt comfortable but never pushed any interventions on me to speed up the process even when things were going slow. Recommend? Highly recommend Insurance: No issues

    Comment:  I thought that overall the hospital was great. Most of the dr's were fantastic as were most of the nurses. I have very strong feelings against the head dr in the OB facility as I think his bedside manner is horrendous but I've heard from others that they disagree. Overall I recommend this facility.

    Comment:  [My wife] has only had good experiences with the group so far (she is due in 2 weeks) and since Dr. Greening is no longer doing deliverys there is a chance this could be our delivering doctor. The group is great and we have met many of the other doctors as well.In terms of location, we had a bit of a trial run to Weill Cornell on Sunday and it was really easy and really quick.(December, 2010)

    Comment:  I gave birth at Cornell and loved it. Truly, the quality of hospital's postpartum care really depends on the nurses. I found that at Cornell, if you treat these tired, overworked, overloaded nurses with the respect they deserve, they will not only take care of you, but dote on you. I mention that only because a few of my roommates were jaw-droppingly rude to the nurses and I found that while their needs were absolutely attended to, the nurses bristled (as they should have). Not implying that you'd be rude, just wanted to underscore that the nurses can make or break your postpartum experience, and there doing the little things that make them feel appreciated will result in a far superior visit. Plus, they really work so hard and deserve all of the little things they get!(December, 2010)

    Comment:  I was not impressed with the antepartum staff at Weill--I was with them the night of the induction. I was having extremely painful contractions (60 - 90 sec apart) three hours after they inserted the cervidil and was bleeding everywhere, yet the nurse kept insisting I wasn't in labor. This continued for another hour, and my husband finally screamed for a doctor. When the doctor came in, she confirmed that I was 3cm and in active labor! Because of that, I didn't call my doula in time and she ended up getting there right as I was getting the epidural (couldn't withstand the induction pain...or that's what I tell myself :). The L&D staff was AMAZING, though. Loved the nurses over there. Once I got to L&D, it was really a great experience. After the birth, we had a private room, which was nice. I found the nurses and doctors in the ward to be wonderful as well. I did NOT, however, like the lactation consultants. One of them told me I could never breastfeed because I had flat nipples, and forced a bottle of formula on me. Long story short--I ended up successfully breastfeeding my son for 11 months. I was so successful at it, that my son was in the 101% for height and weight.(December, 2010)
