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.

It's a very intimate office [Advanced Fertility Services], just the doctor and the practice manager. It was wonderful to build such a close relationship with both of them. This was the strongest take away for me; the personal attention, the sense that you are really being cared for and not just a number. It's a rare delight in any doctor's office, but particularly during such a sensitive and challenging time. The drawback of this is that occasionally things would fall through the cracks- phone calls sometimes went unreturned, a couple of times a rx wouldn't have been put through, etc. And no email, but I can live with that.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Andrew Loucopoulos at Advanced Fertility Services?
Dr. Loucopoulos runs a very small practice and the quality of care was top notch. I was never rushed, my concerns were always addressed, and I really felt like he got to know his patients. His bedside manner is wonderful; to the point but always sensitive. And he has a great sense of humor to boot. I never hesitated to contact their office throughout the long process whenever any questions came up.

How was your experience with Andrew Loucopoulos at Advanced Fertility Services?
My experience was wonderful. I'm not suggesting Dr. Loucopoulos is for everyone, not everybody appreciates his approach. His method is slow and thorough, he doesn't resort to meds right away. I love my time with Dr. Loucopoulos, so much so that I was sad to transfer to an OB when I got pregnant.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Andrew Loucopoulos at Advanced Fertility Services?
It takes a couple visits to warm up to him,

The clinic [Adv Fert Srvcs] itself seemed a little dated and not that clean. I saw a dead bug in the changing room which distracted me during the remaining part of the consultation. The surgical facility seemed newer and cleaner....They [nursing staff] were pleasant and straight to the point...$2500 for the rejuvenation procedure but it would have included anesthesia...We discussed ovarian rejuvenation after several months on a thyroid treatment in order to balance a hypo thyroid issue I was having.

[The nurse at Advanced Fertility Services] went above and beyond to make sure all went well with medications and visits..The staff is excellent. Communication is good. Appointments are made according to each person's situation... The facility is comfortable...Dr. Melnick was knowledgeable, pleasant and explained instructions well. It was disappointing each time I was not pregnant but He tried. He was pleasant and professional. He was usually punctual. He took time with instructions...He transferred one embryo for most of the IVF...While my embryos were considered excellent they did not implant. He was never able to confirm why. I think Dr. Melnick is resilient, and determined to satisfy his patients. I would hope he will try all the new techniques now available. I have one last chance of IVF with my Husband sperms but I am unable to afford it. I am sure he will continue to be pleasant and professional.
