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.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shane Lipskind at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
Dr. Lipskind took the time to answer all of our questions, present all of our options, suggest his thoughts on course of action, but was completely open to what WE wanted to do next. He is kind, thoughtful and I didn't feel like he jumped to any generic treatment, I felt like he took all our factors into consideration and made treatment suggestions based on us as human, not as numbers, or jumping straight to IVF. He did not seem rushed to get the appointment over with. The staff at his office are amazing as well. So kind, caring and thoughtful.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I only saw one nurse but she was wonderful and kind.
How was your experience with Shane Lipskind at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
We've so far only seen Dr. Lipskind once for our initial consultation. He came as a personal recommendation from my OB and I felt very confident in her trust in him. He was on time for our appointment and reviewed our paperwork in detail with each of us (my husband and I). He never seemed rushed. He was careful to explain everything in simple terms with support and compassion. He was optimistic and hopeful for us, which I appreciated. He explained a few options in detail about what the procedures and process entailed, gave us his thoughts on next steps and WHY, and seemed very open to either direction and didn't push us. I appreciated his suggestion to take a more conservative approach to see how my body responds to the fertility medications before jumping straight in to IVF. I felt heard, cared for and ready to move forward with confidence.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shane Lipskind at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
Do your own research ahead of time. Come to the appointment informed about different treatment options. I realized later that he talked about an IUI, which I knew all about, but didn't fully explain what that was to my husband. I filled him in after. :)
Describe the protocols Shane Lipskind used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies and their degree of success.
We've only just started, this is our first cycle with Dr. Lipskind. Our treatment protocol will be to start with at least one IUI cycle. While I assumed we'd jump straight into IVG, the rationale to start with IUI is to see how my ovaries respond initially to the fertility drugs. That will give us a better course of action before we move to IVF, if necessary. We will know on day 3 after ultrasound which drugs and dosage. His initial thought is likely Clomid.

Describe the protocols Shane Lipskind used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies and their degree of success.
We had an IUI with out first child and used a natural cycle. Even though we did not use fertility medication we still used vitamins and supplements that the doctor prescribes (prenatal, vitamin D, COQ10 and baby aspirin). These were used to help maintain a healthy chance for pregnancy. We also had routine bloodwork for both myself and spouse in order to rule out any illness or other concerns. The doctor suggested we have an HSG procedure that was done at an imaging location. This was done to check for any blockages or issues with the uterus and tubes. Lastly we had a series of ultrasounds done in office to check the follicle count and growth before using a trigger shot to trigger ovulation and attempt the IUI.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shane Lipskind at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
Vitamins and supplements approximately $100 a month while trying to conceive HSG rest approximately $200 Ultrasound services approximately $360 IUI approximately $900 Consultation fee $300

There is a difference in cost for IUI cycles with injectibles and IUIs with oral medication [at AZ Center for Fertility]. The IUI itself is only $248 regardless of injectibles or oral meds. Sperm thaw is $100. Sperm wash is $256. Monitoring for oral med cycles is $327. Monitoring for injectible cycles is $540. So IUI costs can range from $931-$1144, which doesn't include the cost of medications.

Describe your experience with Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
This clinic can be a bit disorganized at times and details can slip through the cracks. Scheduling is very easy and quick, I never had a problem getting an appointment when I needed it. Everyone seems to care and want you to be successful, as a whole, I liked the clinic, but I'm moving onto another doctor that I think might be a better fit for me.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
As an IUI patient, I never saw Dr. Nemiro. I saw him twice and once was for the consultation. He was not involved in my care aside from approving medication. I felt like a number since I was hardly ever spoken to by my doctor. However, his RN, Jennifer, was lovely and very caring. She was understanding and positive about our situation.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies. (Assigned nurse: Jennifer)
Jennifer has been through infertility herself and therefore was very compassionate and caring. She is a highly detailed person, which I very much appreciated about her. I wouldn't have wanted to go through treatment with anyone else. While I was disappointment in Dr. Nemiro's lack of involvement, I very much trusted and appreciated Jennifer.
What specific things went wrong at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
  • Failed to call with results
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
Dr. Nemiro is very intelligent, but he was not at all involved in my treatment aside from assigning medications. He was not open to changing my dosage throughout a cycle (so if you're on 150 Follistim, you will stay on 150 Follistim, it won't increase or decrease according to your response). I felt like he was not flexible and treated me according to a pre-set formula of how a woman my age should respond, rather than recognizing I wasn't responding (6 times) and my treatment was never aggressive enough due to my age and high AFC.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
Ask questions and demand to see him if you're doing IUIs. You can get a lot of valuable information from him and explanations, but you have to call him yourself or ask to see him specifically, otherwise you will likely never see him. He is a nice man, but the lack of flexibility in medications and lack of communication was not for me.
Describe the protocols Jay Nemiro used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies and their degree of success.
I started with 50 mg Clomid with IUI, then second cycle 5 mg Femara with IUI, then 5 mg Femara with home insemination, then 5 mg Femara with IUI, then 75IU Follistim and finally 150IU Follistim.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
The staff is amazing and always available by phone or email with question. Dr. Nemiro spent several evenings on phone calls with me to answer all of my questions and give me hope.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies. (Assigned nurse: Jennifer Singleton)
All of the nursing staff showed me compassion, from my primary nurse, financial coordinator to the front desk staff. They are all wonderful.
How was your experience with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
I like how analytical Dr Nemiro is. He really give me the realistic numbers when we were trying to decide what was next for us. His expert advise is what we need to make an educated decision and not waste our time, emotions or our money.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
Do your own research and ask questions. As educated and wonderful a doctor may be, asking smart questions will always be in your best interest. It also allows the Doctor or staff to help you better when they know what you are thinking.
Describe the protocols Jay Nemiro used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies and their degree of success.
I can't recall the protocols used for my IUIs other than that the first one only one vial was used for my injections and the second we used two vials per injection. for the egg retrieval we did an ovarian stimulation protocol with viagra suppositories 25 mp 4x day for 2 wks, growth hormone 1/2 cc once day for 2 wks, luprion 20 units for 10 days and then 10 units for 2 wks, estrace 2mg tab once a day for 2 wks, cetrotide 50 units for 2 wks & FSH 10 vials once a day for 2 wks. I also had to take cabergoline .5 mg after the retrieval & more luprion 20 units once a day until my next mense. This was because my estrogen levels were at 6400 after the retrieval.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
IUI's were around $1500 to $2000. The egg retrieval was about $10,000 or so which includes a 20% discount on provider services because our infertility was due to my husband's cancer treatments. medications were an additional $5,00 to $6,000.
Describe Jay Nemiro's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
I don't know his approach just yet but I do know that he has advised that we transfer no more than two embryos.

Describe your experience with Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
Strengths: willing to work with tough cases. Weaknesses: not a very organized office and too few people on staff and too many involved in each cases there should be one nurse to go to. The clinic is very dated inside in some areas and old can sometimes mean hard to clean so it reflects badly on their clinic. People laugh about the main doc being too cheap to update it and that’s not good. It doesn’t have to be posh but 1980’s decor in some of the areas does not instill state of the art care in ones mind. It just doesn’t. L
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
He is extremely kind and cared about me and spent tons of time w me I like him very much but his office doesn’t run smoothly and this resulted in several serious oversights/mistakes that caused me to have to repeat the transfer. And his transfers are Much too expensive compared with much of the industry these days.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies. (Assigned nurse: Gina Caiazza)
My nurse was the donor coordinator and she’s very good and compassionate and doesn’t miss much. Loved her.
What specific things went wrong at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
  • Lost paperwork
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
It’s very crazy there and they follow old processes for paperwork and such that has too many fingers in the pot and things get missed. He offered a discount after I politely confronted about some mistakes they’d made on my cycle and He offered a 20% discount but didn’t clarify that was only a discount on his portion of the bill which was, I felt, deceptive and I may not have cycled again w them had I know the discount would be next to nothing. After spending almost 100k with them, that discount should have been more fair.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
I would look twice and consider practices because some things are very expensive there and consider an office w more nurses to handle cases and one w more fair transfer pricing.
Describe the protocols Jay Nemiro used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies and their degree of success.
For transfer, I had to have prednisone perhaps due to all my prior losses and was supposed to have intralipids also but couldn’t get them wher I lived. I think many things he does (treating for immune) is excellent.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
Regular cycles for retrieval and egg banking/freezing we’re 11k a cycle. When everything was fertilized on the last cycle, it was probably around 15K. Donor cycle was very expensive. PGS is reasonable there at $2000,00 for up to 8 embryos, but transfers of any embryos are $4,400 which I found to be very very high.
Describe Jay Nemiro's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
My doctor is progressive on this - he believes over say 43 & up the incidence of twins is low so why not put two in. I put two in both times and by the 2nd transfer, one did stick so it supported his theory.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shane Lipskind at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
My husband and I knew we had selected the right doctor after our first meeting with Shane. He is one of the most compassionate doctors I have ever worked with. He personally called with test results if we received bad news, but always had a plan in place on something we could do differently the next time. He truly cared about how I was feeling and understood how emotionally difficult the infertility process can be.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies. (Assigned nurse: Jennifer)
I worked with a few nurses in the office, but primarily with Jennifer. All of them were fantastic. They were so compassionate and caring. If I called or emailed with a question they made sure to get back to me the same day.
How was your experience with Shane Lipskind at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Lipskind. My specific problem had to do with thin uterine lining. Shane tried everything to try and thicken up my lining. We had a lot of setbacks, but he worked so hard to try and find a solution so that we could do an embryo transfer. He called clinics all over the country and developed a protocol that ended up working for me. We got pregnant on our first transfer. My husband and I could not have been happier with Shane. He was so friendly and truly cared about us. I personally saw him at all of my appointments unless he was out of town. One time when he was out of town, he spoke with me on the phone after I checked in with the nurse. Not only is he a wonderful doctor, but he truly cared about us.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shane Lipskind at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
Just be patient if things aren't going your way. It took us some time to get pregnant, but Shane worked tirelessly to try and found a solution for us.
Describe the protocols Shane Lipskind used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies and their degree of success.
We tried a few different protocols, but the one that worked was a Lupron prep cycle with heparin, Trentnal (to try and boost blood flow for lining) and estrogen patches.
Describe Shane Lipskind's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
After conversations with Dr. Lipskind, we decided to transfer two embryos based on my age and what the success rates were transferring two. We ended up transferring two and got pregnant with one.

Describe your experience with Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.
Strengths, caring staff, tho some seemed a bit overworked, they always made sure I was taken care of.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
He met withwith me personally to go over game plan before each IVF, listened to my concerns, and was candid about why he recommended what he did reccommend. He even met with me, free of charge, in between children, for a question I had. He stayed in the office to call le with test results as late as 7 pm one Friday night, so I wouldn't have to worry all weekend. I always felt like I was a person (rather than a number or a statistic) and that we were a team with a stake in the fight to get me pregnant.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies. (Assigned nurse: Gina )
Gina is amazing! I cried in her arms a couple times when we had setbacks. She is very knowledgeable and safe when the process becomes overwhelming. She came over on her lunch and sat with me before my hysteroscopy at the hospital one day when I was scared and felt very alone. That was above and beyond! Jenn is very sweet and caring andand honestly rooting for you!

My phone calls [at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies] were returned in a timely manner (not the case at my first clinic). All my options were discussed beforehand. When I had concerns (which I think happen most of the time doing ART), I knew I could get thru to Dr. Jay and have satisfaction of an answer. Strengths: they fought with me to get me pregnant and most of the staff I came in contact with seemed to care about my getting a successful outcome. Weakness: sometimes a bit of a support staff turnover. Not really anything that effected my getting pregnant, tho.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies. (Assigned nurse: Gina)
Gina is amazing! She is compassionate and caring. She gave up her lunch one day to sit with me when I was scared and alone for a procedure and talked about her pets so I wouldn't be alone. I have poured my heart out to her and she listened and cared. Jenn is very compassionate and caring and sweet.
How was your experience with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
I feel like he is very honest and candid, along with very knowledgeable. My first RE was apathetic and dishonest and I was not given the benefit of someone fighting to get me pregnant. I felt listened to, respected, and like he was personally rooting for me. Prior to getting pregnant, I needed surgery on my uterus and he called results at 6:30 on a Friday night so I wouldn't have to be in limbo all weekend. He spoke to a friend of mine who liveswho lives across the country over the phone who had suffered RPL and was near giving up. (She's a Mom now, too)!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
He is very direct, and will lay all his cards out on the table. It can be a bit of anshock at first, but he will fight to get you pregnant.

The nurses [at Arizone Center for Fertility Studies] ran the show. Gina was very nice and caring. Unfortunately the clinic was missing my ovulation each time so the IUI’s were a waste of time and money. The clinic makes you come in on cycle day 1-3 for a baseline US and then every other day and still this mistake was made. The amount of time put in to getting so many ultrasounds was very difficult on me. Michelle the financial coordinator was very brash and came across as uncaring. They will not work with your insurance at all for any testing.

If you are ready to jump straight to IVF then he may be the Dr for you. Just be prepared for long waits.

Each IUI was around $1500-2000 They charged more for cycles using injectables due to more ultrasound appts.

They [AZ center for Fertility Studies] do a great job at making the journey as easy as possible. Great place and great staff. I did not experience anything I would want to be changed. I felt like everything was open, honest, and up front..... We had a reversal so it was one surgery. He did walk us through every step of the procedure beforehand and on the day of surgery. After I got pregnant he monitored me until I was 12 weeks to make sure the baby was where is needed to be.

It [Arizona Center for Fertility Studies-Scottsdale] looks pretty 80’s. But I’d much rather have up to date equipment and drs at the top of their field and give that money to their pocket as opposed to new decor and a higher rent rate which adds nothing to the level of care or success rate.... We were advised on the new recommendation of transferring one- and given the option to do up to two but this was based on our desire to have a large family- and our ability and willingness to care for multiples.

I highly recommend Dr. Lipskind if you are struggling to conceive, he is an incredible doctor and human being.

She's warm, cares so deeply, and wears her heart on her sleeve...Jay is what I wanted in a doctor- candid, blunt, confident and knowledgeable. I wouldn't say he was warm, but I didn't need that. I wanted to get pregnant, and that's what happened. He knows what he's doing, and I trusted him from moment one. He wants you pregnant, and he doesn't try to make more money by making the process slower than it needs to be. He'd listen to me and offer his opinion always.

How was your experience with Jay Nemiro at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies?
Jay is what I wanted in a doctor- candid, blunt, confident and knowledgeable. I wouldn't say he was warm, but I didn't need that. I wanted to get pregnant, and that's what happened. He knows what he's doing, and I trusted him from moment one. He wants you pregnant, and he doesn't try to make more money by making the process slower than it needs to be. He'd listen to me and offer his opinion always.

He gets the job done. Trust him and his process.

We spent around $40k.
Describe Jay Nemiro's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies.

Jen [a nurse at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies] rocks. She is the day to day point person in his practice. She's very compassionate, fun, kind but super knowledgeable.... The schedule can be a little challenging with their up three weeks, down two week schedule. Dr. Niemero ALWAYS runs late so just be prepared. Finance manager isn't super great in terms of customer service. But nursing staff rocks.

Easy environment [at Arizona Center for Fertility Studies]. Staff and nurses kind. Maybe need a little work on updating patient materials. But there’s so much online that you can find...Loved everyone. All staff have history...Their waiting room is very friendly!...[nurses were] Gentle, let me cry, freak out, listened and supported me all the way through. Very compassionate...I believe they had better outcomes with placing 2 so that was the rationale. We are quite happy only one stuck because we have our hands full with one!
