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.

[Baylor College of Med] Waiting times are long and there’s not a lot of room in their waiting area. You will be asked to complete the same survey online every time you go in. The girls at the front are great at getting your appointment scheduled...Results were failed to be given several times and prescriptions hadn’t been called in but nothing that wasn’t rectified in a timely fashion.... Nurse Amy has always been in our corner! Lipshultz can be a little zany, but she does an excellent job of making sure we’ve got all the information we need!

Waiting times are long and there’s not a lot of room in their waiting area. You will be asked to complete the same survey online every time you go in. The girls at the front are great at getting your appointment scheduled
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Larry I. Lipshultz at Baylor College of Medicine?
Dr Lipshultz sees a LOT of patients and you will wait a long time to see him, this makes you feel like a number. He works with a lot of residents which makes you tend to feel like a science experiment because you end up explaining your condition over and over. However, Lipshultz knows what is going on and is pretty good and keeping up without looking too much at your chart making you feel more human.

How was your experience with Larry I. Lipshultz at Baylor College of Medicine?
Dr Lipshultz has bent over backwards and called in favors just to help us out with our medication costs. He does a great job of listening to you and helping you achieve your outcome offering alternative plans to just “here’s your plan we are sticking with it!” My only complaint is that even though you have an appointment you will end up waiting half he day just to see him.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Larry I. Lipshultz at Baylor College of Medicine?
He can be pretty direct, but he really will do what he can to help and advocate for you! Tell him if you’re struggling with any aspect of your treatment.
Describe the protocols Larry I. Lipshultz used in your cycles at Baylor College of Medicine and their degree of success.
My partner was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder, Kahlmans. He was put on FSH, HCG, and an estrogen blocker. Testosterone levels went up along with semen volume and sperm count.
