Individuals and families can now schedule new patient appointments with Robert Setton, M.D., at SGF New York’s second office opening in Brooklyn. 

New York, NY – Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) announced today it is now scheduling new patient appointments at its second SGF New York office in Brooklyn with Robert Setton, M.D., leading fertility care at the new location. Born and raised in Brooklyn, Dr. Setton first joined SGF New York’s Manhattan office in November 2020 and is proud to help individuals and couples fulfill their family-building dreams in his Brooklyn community.

SGF New York first opened its doors to the Big Apple community in September 2019 with reproductive endocrinologists, Tomer Singer, M.D., MBA, and Anate Brauer, M.D., leading care at its Manhattan office. The expansion of SGF New York into Brooklyn responds to the tremendous patient need in the region for more affordable, convenient, and personalized fertility care.

The Brooklyn office is located in the Pioneer Building at 41 Flatbush Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn at the intersection of the BAM Cultural District, Fort Greene, and Boerum Hill. The office is near 12 NY subway stations, the Long Island Rail Road, and only one block away from the Atlantic Terminal, providing easy access between boroughs, and mere minutes from the Barclays Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Mark Morris Dance Center.

“SGF is truly a patient-centered practice, evidenced by 96 percent of our patients saying they would recommend SGF based on their experience,” explains Dr. Setton. “The mantra that guides any decision is, ‘what would be best for the patient?’ The practice was built on that principle, and it has been our guiding light. When every employee is focused on the patient experience, it creates a culture that is full of positivity, excitement, and support.”

The new Brooklyn location offers comprehensive fertility services that complement the Manhattan office, where Drs. Brauer, Singer, and Setton see patients, including:

  • new patient virtual consults,
  • fertility and ovarian reserve testing and diagnosis,
  • semen analysis,
  • low-tech fertility options,
  • in vitro fertilization (IVF),
  • donor egg, sperm, and embryo,
  • genetic screening and testing,
  • gestational carrier,
  • egg freezing,
  • fertility preservation for patients with cancer,
  • LGBTQ family building,
  • financial counseling,
  • psychological support, and more.

“Individuals and families seeking to grow their families are in the best hands with Dr. Setton as SGF New York expands across the bridge into Brooklyn,” shares Dr. Brauer. “With a presence in the Manhattan and Brooklyn boroughs, we can offer patients easier access to top-quality fertility services closer to home.”

Dr. Singer celebrates SGF New York’s expansion by saying, “When SGF New York first opened in Manhattan, we offered our fellow New York neighbors a practice that they could entrust to fulfill their family dreams. Our growth into Brooklyn with Dr. Setton extends this mission, and as someone who works closely with Dr. Setton, I’m confident in his priorities to offer personalized care for each patient.”

Brooklyn patients also gain access to many unique advantages that sets SGF New York apart:

  • Donor Egg Program: SGF’s Donor Egg Program is the largest in the nation and is one of only a few centers that recruits, selects, and prescreens (medically, psychologically, and genetically) its own ready-to-cycle egg donors prior to making them available on their donor registry. SGF is the proud home to more than 8,000 babies born from donor eggs.
  • Egg Freezing: SGF is one of the top five egg freezing programs in the U.S., and the number of women choosing egg freezing is growing in popularity at an unprecedented 20 percent per year, nationally, with women who live and work near New York City comprising a large percentage.
  • 100% Refund Program: SGF offers exclusive 100% refund guarantee programs for IVF and donor egg treatment—take home a baby or a full refund—a significant differentiator among other programs in the area.

“The opening of the Brooklyn location expands innovative and affordable opportunities for family building in New York,” says Eric A. Widra, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, SGF. “Dr. Setton is dedicated to his patients. His patients will appreciate his warm, caring, and honest approach. Having relied on IVF to help grow his own family, the compassion and support he provides having ‘been there’ is unrivaled.”
