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.

[Dr. John Frattarelli is] A very warm, understanding doctor, he was very informative and quick to reply to a late night phone call to reassure me of my questions or concerns and never made me feel bad for calling. Always smiling throughout the office and keeping a great atmosphere throughout the clinic...I started off with unexplained infertility after trying for 4 years with no pregnancy. Right before starting clomid found out I was naturally pregnant but found out 7 weeks in that it wasn’t viable so had a d&c by my choice. Did clomid next with ti, that didn’t work. Iui with injections and had an ectopic. Did a bunch of blood tests over a week or so then got the shot to eliminate it. Took a few months off to restore body then came back to do iui with folistim and had a chemical pregnancy. Was about to do ivf but got stalled for covid19 under their recommendation during this time. Hoping to start in next month or so.
Everyone there [Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii] is great. Super friendly and informative. After going there for over a year everyone pretty much recognizes me and is rooting me my next step whatever it may be. Carissa has been very good about communication through the beginning steps of ivf and I am still feeling very positive about everything although we have taken a little break.

Describe the costs associated with your care under John Frattarelli at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii.
Cost in beginning was great bc I had tricare only and they covered everything. Picked up hmsa as my primary just in case I decided to do ivf and a lot of things were out of pocket which was expensive. Now I am going to start ivf which is covered more by hmsa so it is worth it.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii.
We had discussed starting injections for next cycle but it wasn’t ordered in time so I did clomid instead. It’s ok though, I’m not upset about it.

Dr. Frattarelli is kind and caring. He doesn't sugarcoat the limitations of fertility treatment or give you false hope. ... Before we knew that my we needed a sperm donor, my partner was put on clomid ... Once we found out why there was no sperm, we moved on to a sperm donor and began IUI treatments. ... I have since had a total of four medicated IUIs, none of these resulted in pregnancy. ...
The doctors, nurses and staff [at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii] are caring and take the time to make sure you understand what is happening.

Before we knew that my we needed a sperm donor, my partner was put on clomid (which was terrible for him). That didn't work. Once we found out why there was no sperm, we moved on to a sperm donor and began IUI treatments. Our first IUI, I was given clomid, which didn't support my lining, but we proceeded with that IUI attempt, which did not result in pregnancy. Following that I was given femara, and lining wasn't an issue. I have since had a total of four medicated IUIs, none of these resulted in pregnancy. I have also been through one IVF, which resulted in one high quality embryo (PGS tested, there were two other that were rated good, but when tested, showed chromosomal abnormalities). The IVF did not result in pregnancy. I'm now beginning another IVF cycle, which will probably be my last attempt because of finances.

The clinic is really beautiful and clean. The entryway feels like a spa. The receptionists are really nice and always greet me by name. The phlebotomist is also really kind and makes getting your blood drawn a little more bearable. They offer parking validation.
Describe the costs associated with your care under John Frattarelli at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii.
With insurance coverage and PGS testing, and IVF cycle cost about $10,000. We received a small refund because we only ended up needing to test three embryos rather than the anticipated five.
Describe John Frattarelli's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii.
We only had one PGS normal embryo, so we only had the option to transfer one.

[Dr. Frattarelli] offered us participation in an IVF drug study trial, so the protocol was very structured. He did explain to us that this study would not allow him to adjust the medication as he would like, but would provide us an “extra shot” that we could learn from if we needed to go through another cycle. He offered us many options that we could try (iui, clomid, traditional IVF etc since this is our first fertility treatment) but we felt confident that we had made the right choice.
100% of our IVF fees were covered by the drug trial [at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii]. Initial consult fees, testing costs and other procedures (hysteroscopy) were as expected. They allowed us to do our blood work and ultrasounds at other clinics to avoid costs if we wanted...Their office is buzzing with tons of staff to keep the flow of patients moving. The wait time was always incredibly minimal and the facility is spacious, organized and efficient. The check in staff knew me by name and I always had positive interactions with all of the team members. The clinic is convenient, offers validated parking and is discreet.
How was your experience with John Frattarelli at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii?
I had done a lot of research prior to our initial consultation. He answered every question I had with care and energy. We always left feeling hopeful and reassured that we were in good hands. He performed all of our treatments and explained what was happening at every turn. I would definitely recommend him!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Frattarelli at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii?
Do your research and know what options are available to you before arrival so that you can allow him to provide his knowledge on the treatments.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with John Frattarelli at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii?
From the very start, our doctor made us feel important. He made both my husband and I feel like neither of us were “the reason” we hadn’t been able to get pregnant. He offered us info and let us choose the path that fit our needs.

Dr.Frattarelli cares for his patients and it really shows. He has a calming, kind demeanor and makes you feel at ease about a very stressful situation (IVF). We never felt rushed like we were just another number and he took his time to explain things in detail, although i'm sure he has a million other tasks or things to take care of...I felt he was always honest with us and didn't sugarcoat anything. He actually remembers his patients when they come in and knows their fertility history.
All of the medications and calendar [at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii] were organized and easy to follow making it with one less thing to worry about. If I had a questions via email, she [nurse] always got back to me very promptly.

Rachel was able to answer all of our questions and explain things thoroughly. All of the medications and calendar were organized and easy to follow making it with one less thing to worry about.

The office always seemed busy however they were always able to see you pretty quickly. We were always welcomed with a smiling face at the front desk and they would remember your name so you didn't feel like another number waiting to be called. If Dr Frattarelli was running behind, they'd let you know and get your labs done or get you prepped in the exam room ready to go. Zoe would do my lab draws and she was great. I'm usually a hard stick but she was always able to get me every time. She was also very, very nice which helped ease the fear of having to get another blood draw. Everyone we interacted with was very kind and you would see lots of smiling faces from the staff.

Dr Karmon is amazing and I'm glad that I decided to get a second opinion because my first Doctor wanted me to just do IVF. It took 3 months with that last doctor and we did no treatments. Dr. Karmon understood my needs and wants. She shared that I had more than 1 option and let me do medicated cycles. She really showed compassion and integrity.
The office [Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii] is bright and fun with a TV that always has cooking shows. I'm a cooking fanatic. But the staff is always smiling to the patients even in the waiting room. It's a large clinic. Nice, clean and wide open space. ... We did a monitored 100mg clomid on my first round with the trigger shot and IUI. She said for my next round if we dont fall pregnant we will go straight to 5mg letrozol. We are currently doing it, monitored, with the trigger shot and IUI again.

From day one Dr. Karmon has always made me feel like we can achieve our goals. She has helped me keep faith in this long, dreadful journey. ... They started me on Provera for 10 days. I had to do a HCG which showed my left tube was blocked and had polyps in my uterus. Dr. Karmon did a hysteroscopy to remove the polyps. The next cycle we started with Provera and then Femara.

How was your experience with Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii?
From day one Dr. Karmon has always made me feel like we can achieve our goals. She has helped me keep faith in this long, dreadful journey. When things didn’t work as planned, she would assure me there is still more possibilities and would adjust our plan of action. Her compassion is like no other and I always felt like she was right there with me. I actually referred my best friend to her. My best friend had 2 recurrent unexplained miscarriages and after her second one I suggested she contact Dr. Karmon for help. I trusted her so much that I sent my best friend to her for help. My best friend is now about to give birth to a baby girl in April.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii?
To trust In Dr. Karmon. She knows what she’s doing and with her help she will lead you in the right direction.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii?
For the first couple cycles it took a veryyy long time for my follicles to be ready for ovulation stimulation. Dr. Karmon knew how frustrating it was for me and she expressed multiple time how frustrating it is for her as well because she knows how frustrating it is for me. It made me feel like she really wanted results for me just as much as I do.
Describe the protocols Anatte Karmon used in your cycles at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii and their degree of success.
For the first cycle, because of insurance, we had to do timed intercourse. Because I have PCOS I don’t typically have regular cycles. They started me on Provera for 10 days. I had to do a HCG which showed my left tube was blocked and had polyps in my uterus. Dr. Karmon did a hysteroscopy to remove the polyps. The next cycle we started with Provera and then Femara. After no results with Femara, we moved on to Follistim. For the first 2 cycles with follistim at 100 units, it took just about 30 days for my follicles to respond. The remaining cycles, Dr. Karmon introduced a steroid with the Femara in the beginning of the cycle to hopefully help my follicles react sooner. With the steroid it took my follicles less than a week of follistim!!!! After my last failed IUI, we discussed IVF and are due to start the medication once I get my period.

Fertility Institute of Hawaii was amazing. All the staff was so sweet. They remembered me every time I came in. Zoe (the phlebotomist) is awesome, her laugh is the best! Emily (receptionist) so sweet and kind, she always took the time to talk to me when she appeared to be so busy at multitasking.

[Dr. John Frattarelli] recommended transferring 2 of the untested embryos which resulted in both implanting but resulted in a vanishing twin. He educated us as to why that may have occured. The other embryo resulted in having trisomy 13 and severe abnormalities resulting in a loss after 18 weeks. My 2nd transfer was with 1 tested embryo but miscarried after 6 weeks. I was pleased with his approach but saddened that it didn’t succeed

Not much empathy when transfers failed or lining wasn’t getting thick enough. Sometimes I felt like he was trying to redirect me to other options, ie surrogacy. ... Dr. Fratteralli is very educated about the ivf process. However sometimes I felt just like a number because all my embryo transferred have failed thus far. ... So far 4 embryo transferred with 1 bfp that resulted in miscarriage. Getting ready for my next cycle.
My coordinator had the wrong transfer dates on my calendar. ... I had no problems with monitoring appointments. Sometimes they were running late but that happens anywhere. ... Staff is very efficient and organized. They also have several offices throughout the state of Hawai’i. They respond via email or phone call. The only “weakness” would be their main clinic is on Oahu, so outer islanders still have to pay for travel expenses. But the clinic will try and accommodate your schedule.

My experience has been positive with Dr. Frattarelli although I haven’t had a successful pregnancy yet. He is very knowledgeable about infertility treatments. He is available for appointments or phone calls to discuss any concerns I had....Started with Clomid and TI for a few cycles then switched to Femara and iui with trigger shot. No successful pregnancy so far.... I was always given as much time as I needed to have my questions answered.

As we progressed with the IVF treatment, Dr. [Frattarelli] was more open and warm. I then startesd to trust him more and our treatment plan. He always asked if we had questions and was willing to explain in depth if need be. I never felt like my appts were rushed with him.... Since our first IVF cycle only produced one mature follicle, we did an IUI instead to save our IVF benefit for the next cycle. The IUI was unsuccessful so we proceeded to another round of IVF (menopur and follistim injections) but Dr. Fratarelli added Androderm patches for 5 days and then Femara for 5 days .
Amy, Rachel and Taylor were very open and available 24/7. Especially since we live on another island, their organization and coordination was optimal. They always were encouraging and honest. I am very grateful for them.... The office [ARMG- HI] is very busy. It may seem like you are just a number but you arent. They are very caring and open. The only problem I had was when making my flight arrangements. My insurance had to call the office and verify my appt. Often my insurance would claim they werent able to get thru to verify the appt.

The first couple MD visits that we tried to get pregnant with just pills, the office didnt really follow up or call to see how I was doing. Once we moved forward to try IUI and IVF, we were assigned a nurse and thats when it seemed that they cared. Im guessing they wanted to make sure we were serious

Dr Frattarelli is really great at explaining the process and going over your plan for treatments. He is compassionate & very patient with questions galore that I threw out at him during our first meeting. I’m very comfortable being under his care with my infertility issues & woupdnt think of going anywhere else... My initial consult was to discuss my health, my husband’s health, treatment plans & options. We did a saline ultrasound of my uterus to check for any issues with my uterus. Next, I was put on injectable medications for ovulation stimulation on day 3 of my menstrual cycle.
There is nothing bad I can say about Fertility Institute if Hawaii. Everyone from front desk to billing to the PA’s, nurses & doctors have been extremely helpful, informative, compassionate, understanding & everything else one could look for when seeking fertility treatments... My Tricare copays for medications came out to $24. I believe each visit was about $30?... Tricia & Anna have both been very compassionate & informative with every visit along with the medical assistants/nurses/staff. All very friendly & comforting during my process of trying for a successful pregnancy.

Dr Fraterelli personally sits down with you to go over your plan. He’s very aware of lab results, cycles, etc. I also deal with his P.A’s & every time one walks into the exam room, it’s again a very personal exam with great bedside manner especially with starting new cycles. I’m assured that it’s ok that the last treatment didn’t turn into a positive pregnancy & that we can make a few changes to the last plan to see if that will work

Dr Fratterelli is kind, patient, and thorough. He takes the time to make sure he has answered all of your questions and concerns. He has been open with us and has adjusted our course of treatment as needed including any/all pre-treatment testing/procedures. I feel very comfortable and safe under the treatment of Dr. Fratterelli.... During our first IVF cycle, we used Follistom and Menopur during the stimulation cycle. Doctor was able to retrieve 23 eggs, 19 were mature, 15 fertilized with ICSI and we obtained three blastocyst embryos.
Everyone I have encountered in this clinic [ARMG- HI] has been extremely pleasant and helpful. The staff is warm and compassionate and will try their best to help you feel comfortable or answer any questions that you may have. The clinic itself is beautiful, bright, clean, and inviting.... Insurance covered partial payment for our first IVF cycle. Out of pocket expenses were approximately $12,000 for the initial cycle and the second FET.

Describe the protocols John Frattarelli used in your cycles at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii and their degree of success.
This is to the best of my recollection. During our first IVF cycle, we used Follistom and Menopur during the stimulation cycle. Doctor was able to retrieve 23 eggs, 19 were mature, 15 fertilized with ICSI and we obtained three blastocyst embryos. We did two FET cycles, one with two embryos and one with one embryo. Both FETs resulted in miscarriage. We are currently in our second IVF cycle. This time we used Gonal-F and double the amount of Menopur. We also used HGH and testosterone this round. Prior to this cycle I prepped for months with DHEA supplements to hopefully improve egg quality. We did a hysteroscopy and a Hysterosalpingogram to check my Fallopian tubes. Both tests came back normal. We did an ERA biopsy and discovered I need an extra twelve hours of progesterone prior to the transfer. This cycle we got 19 eggs, 16 of which we’re mature, 12 fertilized with ICSI. We got three day 6 blastocyst embryos and opted to the PGS testing this time. We have one chromosomally normal embryo which will be transferred as a FET on April 17, tentatively.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii. (Assigned nurse: Aisling Globig)
Aisling is the best! She is always available by email or phone for any questions or concerns I have, no matter how minute they are. Aisling has been my assigned nurse/coordinator from the beginning of our journey and knows me and my case very well.

Describe the costs associated with your care under John Frattarelli at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii.
Insurance covered partial payment for our first IVF cycle. Out of pocket expenses were approximately $12,000 for the initial cycle and the second FET. Our second IVF cycle was not covered by insurance at all and out of pocket expenses have been approximately $23,000 including medications and travel expenses due to Dr. Frattarelli being on a different island, which is also why I would be unable to schedule a same day appointment unless absolutely necessary.
Describe John Frattarelli's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii.
My doctor was very clear about his approach of transferring no more than two embryos at a time. Dr. Frattarelli explained the health risks to both the mother and the babies if more are transferred, as the embryos still have the potential to split once transferred.

Dr. Frattarelli was very informative but I was also assigned to Dr. Karmon who is also very exceptional....They answered any questions that I have and also explained to me what to expect and the outcome being that I had very low ovarian reserves. But they did not discourage me in proceeding with my IVF even though my chances is very slim to conceive....I first went through counseling of what to expect throughout the IVF procedure, then went through a saline check to see if my uterus is good.
Our IVF coordinator [at ARMG] which is Taylor Shodahl was very informative, supportive, communicated very well, and was always there to answer any of my questions and made sure that I understand all medications and how to use it, and all the procedures that I will be going through. Also all the staff from the reception to the admin, blood work, and nurses were very nice, helpful, and compassionate throughout my procedure from the beginning to the end.

They explained to me every medication that I'll be taking, the procedures I'll be going through from check ups to egg retrieval, to embryo transfer. They answered any questions that I have and also explained to me what to expect and the outcome being that I had very low ovarian reserves. But they did not discourage me in proceeding with my IVF even though my chances is very slim to conceive.

I first went through counseling of what to expect throughout the IVF procedure, then went through a saline check to see if my uterus is good. There were also blood work for both me and my husband. Sperm check for my husband which results came back very good. I had couple of ultra sounds done. I was taking DHEA, C0Q10, and prenatal vitamins. I also did the T-Patch, Estrace, before starting to take the progesterone, Cetrotide, growth hormone, Follistim, Menopur, Gonal-F, Endometrin, Lupron, Ovidrel/Novarel/HCG. Then during egg retrival they harvested 4 follicles, out of 4 follicles, 2 became embryos which both was transferred to my uterus. End result the embryos did not attach to my uterus resulting in failed IVF.

[Dr. Anatte Karmon] suggested to have both (Last!) good embryos transferred so we could have higher chances...but we decided to have one other chance, considering we only had two...she's very thorough. clear, still friendly and professional. great doctor...She's the only one that saw at 44 of age a chance to find new explanations on why things were not working like nobody before even thought, and boom! we have now a pretty little baby girl. Some is being persistent, financial wise or helped, courageous, strong and focussed, some luck helps too, but you need for sure a great doctor, and that's Dr.Karmon
We only had a problem with a lab [at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii] that came back negative and ended up being positive. On the third preg.test. I guess that was meant to be, machines fail and it could always happen...Jae Lee [nurse] is the greatest of all, but the whole team works peacefully, professionally and in complete harmony. Despite the stress, challenges and complications, there's Aloha Spirit all over. Clinic Errors
How was your experience with Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii?
After 7 years trying to get a baby, three clinics, two countries, we were lucky enough to find Dr.Karmon. She was the only one in that long period of time, that saw the whole picture, was clear, realistic still with hope and candid manners. She's the only one that saw at 44 of age a chance to find new explanations on why things were not working like nobody before even thought, and boom! we have now a pretty little baby girl. Some is being persistent, financial wise or helped, courageous, strong and focussed, some luck helps too, but you need for sure a great doctor, and that's Dr.Karmon
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii?
She'll go over the whole thing, very detail oriented and would honestly and softly suggest options and give her wise advice. I'd say take it. It worked for us!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii?
she's very thorough. clear, still friendly and professional. great doctor
Describe the protocols Anatte Karmon used in your cycles at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii and their degree of success.
After many cycles, egg retrievals, fertilizations, pgd's etc etc we did with her only one more egg retrieval (we've had 3 frozen embryos tested at that time, but after way too many loses we wanted to be on the most possible safer side). It did not work and it was us suggesting no more retrievals and the next step accepted, offered before hand by Dr Karmon to study for possible polyps (one was there and was minimally invasively removed) and the great ERA study, to find out the need of extra or less hormones to be able con conceive in a fake cycle as far as I can explain it non-medically. Both things prepared the uterus and we were able to get pregnant. By month 3 you definitely need as well a good obgyn, specially if you are on the "considered" risk age for pregnancy.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii. (Assigned nurse: Jae Lee (IVF coordinator))
Jae Lee is the greatest of all, but the whole team works peacefully, professionally and in complete harmony. Despite the stress, challenges and complications, there's Aloha Spirit all over.
Describe your experience with Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii.
We only had a problem with a lab that came back negative and ended up being positive. On the third preg.test. I guess that was meant to be, machines fail and it could always happen. It helped us to show endurance and it ended up being something minor and accidental. The clinic has all strengths you can imagine and I cannot think on weaknesses. Dr.Karmon had a baby when we were taken care of, so Dr.Fratarelli took care of us once or twice. Although we've seen him only a couple of times just being sited at the waiting area, he was fully aware of our situation and medical procedures...meaning coordination is great as well.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii.
have no idea and probably at this point that's a good thing
Describe Anatte Karmon's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii.
The doctor suggested to have both (Last!) good embryos transferred so we could have higher chances...but we decided to have one other chance, considering we only had two. Now we have a healthy baby and a silver bullet on another pgd tested embryo for a last attempt to have another baby (hopefully soon)
What specific things went wrong at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii?
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii.
I've told that before, it was just a frustration that lasted 48 hs after our third pregnancy test that apparently came back negative. And then we had a phone call the next day to go and repeat the test, because it seemed the machine have had a mistake or wrong information and they wanted to make sure.

She [Dr. Karmon] is very professional and as you work with her more you’ll see that she is a very warm person...After a few failed rounds of clomid with my regular OB, we tried two IUIs, then at Dr. Karmon’s recommendation, we went straight for IVF. She felt we should do IVF not only from a cost standpoint but because I was a good candidate for it to be successful...At our request, Dr. Karmon let us put in two frozen embryos for the first transfer which resulted in a successful pregnancy and birth of our son. For the second round, I discussed the risks with her and we decided on one which has resulted in a positive pregnancy with a baby girl due in June.
Around $11,500 for everything [at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii] - PGS, IVF, drs visits, meds, etc...They are very busy! But the staff is great. They do have locations around the island so sometimes scheduling can be difficult if you only have certain times/days and your dr is at other clinic locations on certain days. They are pretty good about being on time for your appointments, parking is validated and basically everything can be done in office.
How was your experience with Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii?
Dr. Karmon was was very direct and clear in her communication. We saw her at almost every appointment and she was a great match for us. She took the time to look into all options and was very straightforward in letting us know her opinions on how she thought we should proceed. We saw her for two successful pregnancies and have recommended her to other friends going through infertility.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii?
Be very clear in what you want and be willing to trust her professional opinion. She is very professional and as you work with her more you’ll see that she is a very warm person.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii. (Assigned nurse: Taylor )
First care coordinator, Aisling was very knowledgeable, however she has since left the practice. Taylor was good but seemed like she was new and had to ask Dr. Karmon for answers before she could get back to us on a lot of things.

DR JOHN Frattarelli is a well educated man that always welcomes you with a smile. when I first went to the clinic and was waiting in the waiting area he was passing by and unlike every other doctor where they just walk by makes eye contact and ignores you. DR frattarelli did just the complete opposite, he greeted me with a hello and a smile as he was just passing through the waiting room which made me feel extra comfortable and welcomed.
The nursing staffs [Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology] were just as awesome as DR john. they are all very helpful and so kind. they as well answers all your questions and concerns.... nothing for weakness because my experience was awesome with all the staffs. they always make sure you feel welcomed once you enter the clinic and on your way out. the clinic is very neat tidy and clean. lots of bathrooms which is awesome. they are fast and efficient.

Describe the protocols John Frattarelli used in your cycles at Advanced Reproductive Medicine & Gynecology of Hawaii and their degree of success.
I was getting treated for a IUI cycle. DR john wanted to do a mock cycle first to see how well ill respond with the medications such as clomid which was used to help me to ovulate and metformin which I had to take due to having PCOS. the mock cycle went very well my body was responding well to the medications and everything looked great which is what exactly doctor said. so he told me it was time to search for a donor for my next cycle the actual one where we would go ahead and do the IUI. unfortunately I did my next cycle with a different doctor. but over all my experience was great with DR JOHN FRATTARELLI!

Dr. Frattarelli made our experience positive. He explained everything and answered all questions we had. Like all things with unexplained infertility there will always be unknowns, he never made us feel like a lost cause but was open about known statistics of success. I found him to be trustworthy and kind. I was comfortable with him through our whole journey...He is an up front physician and takes a few minutes to warm up but this does not mean he doesn’t care. He is an amazing clinician and hopes for success of all.
The costs were around what I had researched online [at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii]. They were upfront with the costs during consultation and also discussed the cost of the medications. All were as expected...Very responsive, communicate well always friendly, clinic environment is warm and inviting. Lots of natural light in lobby. My husband was comfortable there too. If you have questions ask, be honest and open. If they ever don’t have the answer, they will find someone who does. Love it there!

Dr. John and his staff were amazing.They were very responsive and easy to work with. I could tell they had our best interests at heart.... I saw 3 doctors over the course of 8 years of TTC. Dr. John was by far the best one. He was very warm, easy to talk to, and honest from the start. We trusted him implicitly with our care. His professionalism and bed side manner are top notch. I would highly recommend him to anyone dealing with fertility issues.
They [Fertility Institute of Hawaii] are very busy so the appointments are short and to the point. If you feel like you need to be coddled a lot, this may not be the clinic for you. Everyone who works there are is very nice. I did not have a problem with any one there. It was nice to have follow up appointments on Maui....

He [Dr. Frattarelli] is patient, warm and kind. He makes you feel comfortable and clearly explains treatment options and his honest opinion on success. I trusted him throughout the process completely!... Due to our situation, husband low count, slow and questionable quality swimmers, dr. F suggested IVf. My husband and i wanted to instead try iui, our insurance, tricare, does not cover infertility treatment, due to cost. We tried two rounds of iui with myself being stimulated with no luck.
The staff [Advanced Repro Med] knew my name when i walked in and created me warmly.... Strengths: i feel they are very through and give very individualized treatment. They were expanding as i left so hope they have still kept the very personal care and touch i knew them to have. I honestly can not think of a weakness...my hubby said the tv in the men’s “room” did work so if it’s still out of order perhaps that... Our fresh cycle with out medications cost us roughly 11k. The following frozen cycle was around $5k
