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.

There is one main nurse there [at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility]. She is very friendly and caring. She knows our names and is knowledgeable on our case. She follows through quickly and consistently. She takes the time to answer all of our questions and often consults with the doctor to ensure we get the best information. She has been through fertility treatments so I relate and trust what she tells us. It also keeps me more confident through the process.

Describe your experience with Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
Strengths: They are efficient. Its a small office so they know every patient and every case. The prices are the lowest anywhere but without sacrificing integrity or taking shortcuts. The staff is friendly and will always follow through on what they say. Little to no wait time. I was able to get into my initial appointment quickly. They answer the phone immediately. Weaknesses: They do not bill directly to insurance for anything other than office visits. So we have to pay out of pocket for blood work and procedures. But the billing coordinator did say they provide everything to make it easy to submit to insurance for reimbursement.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Dr Gelety isn't the hand holding, sugar coating type but he knows who I am. He is quick but thorough. The staff is very friendly. They also remember everyone that comes in.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. (Assigned nurse: There's only 1 main nurse)

How was your experience with Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Dr Gelety is thorough and knowledgeable. The initial appointment was long and not rushed. We covered everything. He set very real expectations and steps knowing that we could adjust the course along the way if necessary. I see him at EVERY single appointment whether its just a check in, an ultrasound or an actual procedure. While each appointment is not very long, I feel like everything is covered. I would call him "efficient"
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
If you're looking for someone to hold your hand and sugar coat anything then he is not the one for you. He is straightforward and to the point. He is friendly but in a professional doctor way not in a friend or acquaintance way. Also, know that you will see him at every appointment. For me, that builds a lot of confidence and reassurance in the process.
Describe the protocols Timothy Gelety used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and their degree of success.
Before starting IVF we did a lap where discovered that i had stage 2 endometriosis. It was shocking that this had never been discovered before after my recurrent miscarriages and fibroids. Once we started IVF we did a cycle of lupron, 9 days of menopur and Novarel as the trigger.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
Monitoring appointments were scheduled like any other appointments. They don't have specific windows for only certain procedures. So we could schedule ultrasound appointments for any day of the week or time. This is because they are all handled by the doctor himself. We traveled 2 hours to see the doctor and found them very flexible to accommodate our schedule.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
A round of IVF is about $7k not including medications. We pay $35 for each bloodworm that is done since they do it in office.
Describe Timothy Gelety's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
We haven't done an embryo transfer yet but he is for a multiple embryo transfer especially due to my age.

The nurses [at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility] are all great...The building itself is great - clean and has recently been updated. His prices are cheaper than at least one other RE in Tucson. Gelety isn't so great when it comes to being patient and answering your questions. If your treatment is going to be pretty straight-forward, then you should be fine seeing him. If you have a lot of issues and want someone to hold your hand the whole time and spends hours with you, Gelety isn't for you.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Everyone I encountered at Gelety's office were incredibly friendly and welcoming. However, as my appointments went on, I felt like I was getting my questions answered and was looked at as just another patient. Any time I'd ask Dr. Gelety a question, he'd respond with "yeah, yeah...we'll look into that later." Come to find out, Gelety never even did the basic tests to rule out things like thyroid issues, low ovarian reserves, etc. He was pushing IVF hard (which I was fine with and was willing to do), but why should I spend all that money without ensuring any underlying issues have been diagnosed/addressed?
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses are all great!
What specific things went wrong at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
  • Failed to call with results
How was your experience with Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Dr. Gelety is well-respected in Tucson and I initially liked him, but as time went on, he became very dismissive to some of my basic questions. I was dealing with a cyst that wouldn't go away and his answer was to do another Lap (which I recently had done already). There are other ways to get rid of cysts, none of which were even mentioned to me as options. Instead of suggesting birth control, he immediately suggested I have a Lap procedure. He went from 0 to 60 with no in between options which made me realize I should leave him and get a second opinion elsewhere. I have heard from friends that he pushes Laps which I initially didn't believe, but in the end I witnessed it first-hand.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Make sure Dr. Gelety performs the basic tests in the beginning to rule out things like Thyroid issues, phase defects, etc. Once these are done, make sure he reviews them with you in great detail before he suggests treatment options.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
I always paid my $40 copay at each appointment which, if it was done, would cover the ultrasound and appointment with the doctor. Blood work was never covered (even though my health insurance covers blood work 100%) and cost $60. His prices for IUI and IVF are extremely reasonable and are much cheaper than at least one other RE in Tucson. Gelety and his staff are pretty firm on not working with your insurance so if you are one of the few who has fertility treatments covered by your health insurance, you will probably have to do all the leg work to get it paid for.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
The doctor seemed to care about me and what treatment was best for me.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. (Assigned nurse: Martha )
Martha is no longer at the clinic and while she was nice she often got confused and told me the wrong time to do my trigger shot. All turned out well, but could of cost me big.
What specific things went wrong at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
  • Failed to call with results
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Doctor Gelety worked with my own cycle and never had me take birth control to control my cycle. He was available whenever I needed him and came in during a holiday to do my retrieval. He seems to do things more old school and my treatment seemed to have a lot less medication than other people going through treatment. He does seem like he is in a hurry often.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Do you own homework, be sure you follow up because sometimes they forget. He allows you to get your medication in Mexico which definitely lowers cost.
Describe the protocols Timothy Gelety used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and their degree of success.
I started off with clomid and monitoring cycle. I was able to get pregnant during the 3 round, but had a miscarriage at 18 weeks. Then clomid and IUI with Hcg trigger shot, negative pregnancy test. 1 st round iVF menopur 4 vials 8 days, then trigger shot. Transferred 3 embryos resulted in chemical pregnancy. 2 round IvF double dose of menupor, lupron for 3 days. Hcg trigger shot.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
IUI 750 plos $50 trigger shot. IVF 7500 plus ICSI was 1,000. We got most of the medication in Mexico costing 1,200. Office visits were $50 copay, blood work $50 each time I believe.
Describe Timothy Gelety's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
I think that the doctor has a lot of experience, so I was comfortable with him suggestion the number of embryos to transfer. For me it was 3 each time.

How was your experience with Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Dr Gelety himself seemed like a confident, caring guy. He was just always so rushed I never had time to ask him all my questions, and a lot of times left frustrated and confused. He definitely knows what he is doing, the communication just isn't always there. I felt I was treated much better after I got pregnant. I did like that he gives out his personal cell number, and I called him a few times when I had urgent problems and he always called right back.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Get all your questions out as soon as he walks through the door for your appointment. Don't let him leave the room if you still have more questions, because he will disappear to the next patient.
Describe the protocols Timothy Gelety used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and their degree of success.
For fresh cycles, Dr Gelety put me on birth control for a month, then I did Lupron injections to suppress my ovaries for 2-3 weeks. Menopur was used to stimulate follicle/egg development, trigger shot before egg retrieval, and progesterone in oil injections were started around transfer time. Frozen cycles were easier. Provera for 10 days to induce a period if needed, then estradiol pills to build uterine lining for 2-3 weeks. Progesterone in oil shots started around transfer time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
Fresh cycles were around $10-11k including medications. Frozen cycles were $1,200 and annual embryo storage fees are $200.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
He gave us no information on why we were not having any success. At the time he was only growing embryos to 3 days and told us that it would cost us a lot more to have them grow to 5 days. He also suggested that we could get some of our medicine from other countries. He doesn't have the bedside manner, but all I wanted to answers and he couldn't give us anything.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I didn't really deal with any nursing staff. The doctor handled everything on his own.
What specific things went wrong at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
He was a nice doctor, but we felt like it was a blue light special. We did see him every time but I always had to go home and research what the next step should be and he wasn't doing that. I would ask question and I just felt like he wanted to get us through everything and get our money and then move on to the next person. His bedside manner is not the best but that doesn't mean much to me. I want to know and understand what the next steps are and what we can do to help improve things. He wasn't the right doctor for me.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Just know what you want done, do your research and get second opinions.
Describe the protocols Timothy Gelety used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and their degree of success.

I just remember with medicine and the procedure it was $10,000
Describe Timothy Gelety's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
He transferred 5 embryos into me two different times. He said that some of them he didn't think would survive anyways so he said we could just put them in me and let my body absorb them. Was that the best idea when I could have had two embryos that were good to put them in with bad ones too.

How was your experience with Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Dr Gelety is perhaps more blunt than other doctors, and he will certainly give you a lot of information that can prove somewhat overwhelming, but he approached my issues as if they were a puzzle to be solved and assuaged my worst fears with kindness and understanding.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Bring a notebook to the first appointment, be prepared for each appointment with your written questions. Dr Gelety is efficient, which I appreciate, but that means you need to get your thoughts in order before you see him.
Describe the protocols Timothy Gelety used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and their degree of success.
After another doctor in town misdiagnosed me as pre-menopausal, and after over a year with that other practice, Dr Gelety diagnosed me with endometriosis. We also were able to get my cycles regulated after years of having two periods a month.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
IUIs were somewhere around the $120 range. Blood tests were $80.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Dr Gelety specializes his care. He listened to my body and allowed us to move as fast or as slow as we would like to.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. (Assigned nurse: Kayla)
The nursing staff is phenomenal. They always made me feel welcome and they were genuinely interested in our successes.
How was your experience with Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Dr Gelety isn’t overly friendly and his bed side manner could improve, but I never had a negative experience with him. He laid out multiple options for us and allowed us to choose what course of action we wanted to take. He also always gave options of where we would like to go next.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Don’t expect warm and fuzzy from him. He doesn’t take extra time with you unless it’s necessary, but he does care about you 100%. He’s a little socially awkward, which was a quirk I kind of liked in him.
Describe the protocols Timothy Gelety used in your cycles at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and their degree of success.
We did 2 IUIs with Femara and a trigger shot. We then did Lupron 20units followed by 5units, Menopur 4 vials for 9 days, HCG 10,000 trigger, and then progesterone in oil for our IVF cycle. We did retrieval with a fresh embryo transfer using 3 day embryos.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
Approximately $5,500 for IVF, $1,200 for ICSI, $475 for egg freezing.
Describe Timothy Gelety's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.
Dr Gelety left the option up to us, letting us know that one embryo was about a 20% success rate and two was about a 50% success rate. Ultimately, he did whatever we wanted to do though.

The clinic [Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility] was very nice, clean, and run in an organized manner. The only thing I didn't like was that when it came time to pay they informed me they did ICSI and it was going to be an additional $1,250. Which was fine if it needed to be done but we weren't expecting that...All of the nurses were very friendly and knowledgeable on what was going on. They took the time to explain things. They followed up with us often because we were from out of town.
