Attention to Detail

Attention to detail is on a 1 - 10 scale, and is scored based on the rate, and severity, of errors committed by the clinic according to the patients.

For example, a severe error might be failing to inform a patient of critical information, while a small error might be failing to call a patient with results.

CDC Success Rates

This is the most recent data from the CDC. The CDC cautions that it should not be used to compare doctors and clinics.

For more information please see our FAQs.

Where you see a “?” on the chart, a clinic has done fewer than 20 cycles in this category and age range, so the CDC says showing percentages from this small data set would be misleading and unreliable.

So far [with Dr. Michael Allon], we have only done a cycle of clomid to go in and look at the number of eggs produced. Dr. Allon determined that I had PCOS and recommended a hysteroscopy...Dr. Allon takes the time to sit down and go over personal goals with his patients. He makes time to answer any questions and never makes you feel like a number...Dr. Allon is compassionate, patient and gentle towards his patients. He is extremely straightforward but in a gentle and stern manner. Dr. Allon has always been thorough and sympathetic towards infertility issues.
Sometimes it's hit or miss with the nursing staff [at Advanced Fertility Center of Texas]. There are days when they answer phones or immediately return phone calls. Other days, the voicemail only picks up and the day is almost over before a call is returned. However, the staff is always friendly and professional during appointments.

So far, we have only done a cycle of clomid to go in and look at the number of eggs produced. Dr. Allon determined that I had PCOS and recommended a hysteroscopy. It's still fairly early to speak about the results produced but I'm confident in Dr. Allon's plan towards pregnancy.

Describe your experience with Advanced Fertility Center of Texas.
The clinic is located in the central part of town, making it easily accessible. The waiting area could be a little bigger, as there's often couple coming in for appointments. With a long couch and three chairs, patients are often standing in a corner or propped against the furniture. I will say that the waiting area is always neat and clean.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Allon at Advanced Fertility Center of Texas.
We paid for the consultation and blood work that had to be completed. We have purchased clomid through a local pharmacy and are taking the recommended fertility vitamins from the clinic. We have recently been billed for the hysteroscopy as well.

[Dr. Michael Allon is] very sensitive and caring...He's very committed...I like the way he has treated myself and my husband, it is a stressful process and good to have such a wonderful doctor...Ask all the questions you want! He will answer them...
Communication can be improved as well as after hours contact line [at Advanced Fertility Center of Texas] ; all staff very nice and welcoming though. Weaknesses - unlike other places - you will not get an embryo quality grade, so that is important to know... he surgical staff is fantastic. IVF nurses communicate by message to portal and sometimes the directions aren't very clear. There also isn't a great way to contact them after hours if you have questions. Sometimes the manner of communication is stressful and pressured. With that said - they are all on your team for sure and doing the best for you.
