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.

How was your experience with Ayyagari Ramchandra at Ayyagari Ramchandra MD?
Doctor was a caring person & explained all the treatment & what his plans where to help you conceive. Doctor however is a cookie cutter type - he is set in his ways & methods and ONLY wants to do what he know. Which might not work for ALL of his patients. He helped me ovulate & get achieve pregnancy, unfortunately he failed to hear my concerns on progesterone & the pregnancy was lost at 6 weeks. I've spoke to other patients - he always finds something wrong with your cervix & does a cauterization procedure, he recommends ovary drilling, and procedures that don't correlate to ones situations. It may help some & other has no way of helping.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ayyagari Ramchandra at Ayyagari Ramchandra MD?
Make sure you are vocal on your concerns. You know your body best - don't let yourself be on a conveyor belt & be treated like all the rest!
Describe the protocols Ayyagari Ramchandra used in your cycles at Ayyagari Ramchandra MD and their degree of success.
Doctor will start out with oral medication, & checking your cervix - he then states something is wrong with cervix does a biopsy & recommends cauterization. ( I've spoken to quite a bit of his patients & this is confirmed his method of starting) He then recommends an HSG ( which I for sure feel was a great way to rule out blocked tubes & uterus position). Then after 3 rounds not conceiving on your own he recommends IUI & ovary drilling. We went ahead with IUI but politely declined Ovary drilling because i ovulate on both sides of ovary.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ayyagari Ramchandra at Ayyagari Ramchandra MD.
Ultrasound - $210 IUI w/ Sperm wash - $510 Ovulation test - $14 HSG - $550 Labs were done from another local clinic & were billed to insurance along with major surgery services.
