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. This data represents the outcomes of IVF cycles when using a person's own eggs.

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.

I was shocked by how available Dr. Goldstein was for us. My first visit, she sat in her office with me and my partner for over an hour and just got to know us and our history. She cared, she laughed with us, she empathized with us. She let us email her at any time and called us any time we asked, even in the late night...she kept close track of my ovulation to determine the length of time to do the stims, and under ordered my medication so I wouldn't have to pay more than necessary...
Amazing clinic [Beverly Hills Fertility], well run and well organized. The girls are so friendly, they make themselves available to me whenever I needed it, and never bruised me when taking my blood a million times a month...I was greeted cheerfully, the girls would laugh with me and keep things light. They took care of me like I was their own. To give me my good news, they all got together and called me together and I was so touched I cried about it for days...
How was your experience with Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
Dr. Goldstein is something else. She is heaven sent for anyone going through infertility. She made us feel seen, she gave us her time, took the time to answer our 1 million questions, was willing to do what we were comfortable with without any judgement. She made herself available to answer my 1000 million questions, even when I would sent silly questions late at night she responded in 5 minutes. She cares. She would see me happy and get happy, she would see me nervous and reassure me. She would see my excited and set my expectations realistically. She took the best care of us, all while keeping us realistically hopeful the entire process. I couldn't rave enough.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
I would say to trust Dr. Goldstein. She really knows what she's talking about and what she's doing, trust her. I'm very into research myself, and would go research the advice or things she'd tell me and see that she really knows what she's talking about.

Describe the protocols Ellen Goldstein used in your cycles at Beverly Hills Fertility and their degree of success.
My husband and I didn't want to do IUI. The low success rate didn't feel like something we could handle, and she was supportive of our decision without pushing in any direction. We did a relatively normal IVF cycle, where she kept close track of my ovulation to determine the length of time to do the stims, and under ordered my medication so I wouldn't have to pay more than necessary. She ended up saving me so much money, because my stims were relatively short. We did the transfer in the next cycle with minimal hormonal intervention which was refreshing, no trigger shot or anything (which was great because that first trigger was so hard on my body). I got pregnant the first round of IVF thanks to Dr. Goldstein's magic.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Beverly Hills Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Alondra)
Coming to the clinic for me felt like coming to my cousin's house. I was greeted cheerfully, the girls would laugh with me and keep things light. They took care of me like I was their own. To give me my good news, they all got together and called me together and I was so touched I cried about it for days. They were so good to me every step of the way I couldn't be more appreciative.
Describe your experience with Beverly Hills Fertility.
Amazing clinic, well run and well organized. The girls are so friendly, they make themselves available to me whenever I needed it, and never bruised me when taking my blood a million times a month. I don't have any weaknesses honestly. Bring a jacket for the waiting room lol
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Beverly Hills Fertility.
They had to be within a certain time frame when blood work was involved, in order to get results back that day. But if it was just an ultrasound, the timing was more flexible than that
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility.
I think the treatment was around 14k for IVF, and an addition 4500 for genetic testing. I could be wrong, don't quote me.
Describe Ellen Goldstein's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Beverly Hills Fertility.
I was strongly against having twins ( I don't think I can handle two at once, but more power to those who can). She was supportive of my decision, and instructed us when to use protection to prevent twins as well as only impanting one embryo.

Dr. Goldstein is a true girl boss – fabulous, knowledgeable, down to earth, has an amazing team, and most importantly, she balances reality with optimism.

How was your experience with Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
Dr. Goldstein is a true girl boss – fabulous, knowledgeable, down to earth, has an amazing team, and most importantly, she balances reality with optimism. I always felt that I was in such great hands, and as someone who likes to do her research, I could then just clarify or validate things with her or her team at any time. This also allowed me to just focus on myself and the journey towards egg freezing. She’s also extremely research, fact, and digitally minded, so I personally felt like all decisions were up to date and never needed a second opinion.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
Figure out what you want to do, why things have or have not worked, and come prepared with any questions (you also don’t need to have any). I saw all this because once you’re in, the clinic is such a well-oiled machine that things can happen on Day 1! It’s incredibly exciting, and so if you need more time to think, do your research prior and learn as much as you can. Also, depending on what your purpose of visit is, find the 3-4 attributes that you’re looking for in a doctor / clinic. Once I identified mine, I only chose Dr. Goldstein (vs. talking to a few doctors), and I already knew that I wanted to work with her after doing my research, and I’ve never looked back.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
I felt like a human because everything was extremely personalized - from getting to know the entire team and each other to adjusting protocols or strategies on the fly and essentially figuring it out and learning along the way. It also made a difference that as a patient you see Dr. Goldstein each time so there was no need to rehash or get a surprise during each visit. Each visit was then almost predictable and quicker (or longer) based on what you needed at that particular time. If I felt like a number, I’d be in and out in five minutes, seeing different team members, and needing to memorize my case in order to explain the purpose of visit.
Describe the protocols Ellen Goldstein used in your cycles at Beverly Hills Fertility and their degree of success.
I had an ultrasound and bloodwork as an initial step for follicle count and other important baseline measures. Based on those results, you get a rough schedule about your personalized plan. Once we had my target start date, I ordered my medicines, and you get an onboarding of the medication. Throughout the days you’re on medication, you have ultrasounds, bloodwork, and then once ready, you have your trigger shot (36H prior to retrieval). Then, I had my retrieval. It took a few days to recover and about two weeks to fully feel back to normal. It was a success!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Beverly Hills Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Erika & Christina)
The nursing staff was everything for me. By the end of my few weeks at the clinic, you know everyone’s names and some personal stories. It really makes a difference when the team is extremely approachable, knowledgeable, and incredibly caring. I had endless questions, and each of them were extremely proficient. I really felt like they were with me each and every step of the way (until I got picked up post-retrieval).
Describe your experience with Beverly Hills Fertility.
Strength for me would definitely be the overall clinic’s aesthetic. It never felt like I was going to a hospital, rather it was somewhere that was very comfortable, clean, and welcoming. Location was also a major plus for me - I chose based on proximity to my work (about 15 minutes). This is especially handy when and if you have your appointments in the early mornings. I cannot think of any weaknesses aside from parking - but that’s an issue throughout the city. If you’re deciding across clinics, I’d say the #1 factor is really who you’re seeing / the doctor. I’d travel for Dr. Goldstein!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility.
My total costs for egg freezing were about $13K. Costs are basically divided into two main buckets: (1) procedure-related fees and (2) medicines. (1) is the clinic’s fixed fee and (2) depends on how your ultrasounds go. Regardless, Dr. Goldstein is very intentional about not over-ordering for medicines, minimizing any unnecessary costs and medicine waste. My insurance paid for a little more than 50%. It’s important to set a budget for the total costs and confirm things with your own employer / insurance so you know what you’re in for. Dr. Goldstein’s team does an amazing financial onboarding session, which happens right before finalizing everything. If you’re reading this far, just go for it. The entire process is life-changing, and I will forever be grateful for Dr. Goldstein and her team!

Dr. Goldstein is a wonderful doctor and human...1. She saw me at every visit...2. She gave me realistic expectations and checked those with every visit as the process progressed. 3. She sincerely cared about how much money I spent on meds. She timed everything perfectly...4. She let me know from day one that she was available to answer any question as it came up and not to hesitate to reach out. Emailing her, even late at night, received a speedy response.
[Beverly Hills Fertility] Strengths: -Exceptional doctor and staff -Lovely office with validated parking -Short wait times -Price - I didn't do a lot of shopping around but I believe Dr. Goldstein is priced slightly lower than other clinics in the area. Especially if you factor in that the first year of egg storage is included in the fee. Weakness: Dr. Goldstein is the only doctor. I'm sure there's a backup plan if something comes up - I never asked!
How was your experience with Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
Dr. Goldstein is a wonderful doctor and human. This was my second round of egg freezing and some things stood out about my experience with her: 1. She saw me at every visit (as opposed to another clinic where I only saw my doctor for the consultation and retrieval). 2. She gave me realistic expectations and checked those with every visit as the process progressed. 3. She sincerely cared about how much money I spent on meds. She timed everything perfectly so I wouldn't have extra meds but also recommended upping the dose when it made sense. 4. She let me know from day one that she was available to answer any question as it came up and not to hesitate to reach out. Emailing her, even late at night, received a speedy response.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
Be honest and upfront with your questions. Do research so you know which questions to ask. She'll answer them and give you all the information you need to make personal decisions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
Dr. Goldstein always took her time with me to address my questions and concerns. Her facility itself is brimming with kind employees who prioritize patient care. Her tone always comes from a place of confidence and knowledge but never from a place of superiority and arrogance.
Describe the protocols Ellen Goldstein used in your cycles at Beverly Hills Fertility and their degree of success.
I started with estrogen pills 7 days after ovulation. Days 1-4: 225 follistim, 150 menopur Days 5-11: upped to 300 follistim Days 8-12: ganirelix Day 12: trigger shot + what was left of follistim (about 275) Day 14: retrieval 13 eggs retrieved, 10 mature
Describe your experience with your nurse at Beverly Hills Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Erika Gonzalez)
Erika was an absolute delight. She was always cheerful, compassionate and professional. Having a dedicated coordinator makes the process so much easier - I never felt like I was throwing my questions out into the ether. Erika was on it! Every other person (finance, front desk, nurses, embryologist, anesthesiologist) at the clinic I interacted with was wonderful. Clearly, hiring people who are on board with Dr. Goldstein's ethos is a priority for the clinic.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
Trust in her experience and knowledge! The infertility process can have ups and downs and unforeseen twists. And if something is not going as planned, she undoubtedly will adapt and problem solve in a way that will be best for you in the long run. I never doubted anything she recommended during our journey for a minute.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
The office and Dr. Goldstein are so inviting and welcoming. They felt like family and were so supportive of me during the ups and downs. I felt like I was in the best hands possible.
Describe the protocols Ellen Goldstein used in your cycles at Beverly Hills Fertility and their degree of success.
For our transfer, we decided to do frozen and attempt a natural cycle. Through consistent daily blood work, she discovered that my hormones were out of whack and made the decision to cancel the cycle. For the next cycle, she recommended a medicated cycle with estrace and PIO shots. This would guarantee more control over my levels. It proved true, as I am currently pregnant!

Describe your experience with Beverly Hills Fertility.
Beverly Hills Fertility is beyond amazing. They are responsive to questions, organized, welcoming, and not to mention the office is state of the art! They are at a completely different level than any fertility clinic I have visited prior. The level of professionalism and competence the entire staff possesses is unlike any other. For any new future patients, if you are researching and wondering if you should become a patient—-DO IT! I am so grateful to have been referred to this office and becoming a patient was the best decision I have ever made.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Beverly Hills Fertility.
I was always able to schedule my monitoring appointments with no problem. Dr. Goldstein worked around my work schedule to avoid me having to miss too many days. They were amazing at fitting me in during times that were more convenient for me.

How was your experience with Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
Dr. Goldstein is absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone struggling with fertility. She took time to answer questions and evaluate treatment options.

How was your experience with Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
Dr Goldstein was absolutely incredible. We sought her out after going through three consecutive miscarriages and being told by multiple doctors to “just keep trying”. Dr Goldstein responded by acknowledging the emotional pain of the miscarriages and performing a full testing and imaging workup to ensure that nothing was missed. She confirmed the previous diagnosis, but did so in a way that made us feel listened to and understood which was critical in our ability to move forward. When we did get pregnant again, she performed weekly ultrasounds to help us through the first trimester and continued to be a resource via email as we transitioned to our permanent OB-QYN. Thank you Dr Goldstein!

Dr. Goldstein is patient and takes time to answer all your questions -- while you are in her office and when you contact her by email or phone. She is very responsive to emails, provides detailed responses, and welcomes follow up questions. I felt very comfortable to ask her questions. Also, during this entire process, other than bloodwork, Dr. Goldstein was directly involved. She did all my ultrasounds and met with me during every visit...understood how emotional this process is -- she listened, she was patient, and empathetic.
They [Beverly Hill Fertility] do not work with insurance (at least at the time of my visit), which was not ideal. They were responsive, the office was clean, and the entire team starting at the front desk were patient, kind, and sincere...Dr. Goldstein has excellent bedside manner, she is calm and caring, and very receptive and responsive to questions (during visits and by phone/email). She encouraged me to email her with concerns and questions, and she always responded timely. Initially, it appeared as though I had diminished ovarian reserve and Dr. Goldstein really partnered with me to figure out the best course of action. She made me feel very safe and I had full confidence in her experience (even though I am a very skeptical person, generally).

For example, go over what you could experience after the retrieval process (for example, to no fault of Dr. Goldstein's, I had significant bloating after the retrieval, which is "normal" but not as common).
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
Dr. Goldstein is patient and takes time to answer all your questions -- while you are in her office and when you contact her by email or phone. She is very responsive to emails, provides detailed responses, and welcomes follow up questions. I felt very comfortable to ask her questions. Also, during this entire process, other than bloodwork, Dr. Goldstein was directly involved. She did all my ultrasounds and met with me during every visit (versus other doctors who had their staff do ultrasounds and only met with me for a rushed moment thereafter). Lastly, Dr. Goldstein understood how emotional this process is -- she listened, she was patient, and empathetic.
Describe the protocols Ellen Goldstein used in your cycles at Beverly Hills Fertility and their degree of success.
I took estrogen pills about a week before I expected my cycle to start (not everyone does this), I did injections for 10 days before my trigger injection (initally thought I would do 8-9 but I was responding well to medication so we continued a bit more). The results were great -- each visit, we could see about 15-17 follicles and she was able to retrieve 17 mature eggs. She also retrieved 3 that were not mature.
Describe your experience with Beverly Hills Fertility.
They do not work with insurance (at least at the time of my visit), which was not ideal. They were responsive, the office was clean, and the entire team starting at the front desk were patient, kind, and sincere.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility.
Cost of retrival all in, $8,550 (included one year of egg freezing)
What specific things went wrong at Beverly Hills Fertility?
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Beverly Hills Fertility.
Very minor, but Dr. Goldstein told me my procedure would be at one time, but my nurse emailed me with a different time. When I checked with Dr. Goldstein (she was immediately responsive) she confirmed the time she said was correct, she changed the time based on my progress, and my nurse had not yet been updated.

Dr. Goldstein is super reliable, compassionate and has the most steady hands...I have pretty low follicle counts comparing to other girls of my age, and my estradiol level was really low all the way through the stimulation. To cater for my personal situation, Dr. Goldstein would schedule additional appointments so she could closely monitor my follicle development and adjust meds based on my responses...after my retrievals, I almost didn't feel a thing...
The embryologist [at Beverly Hills Fertility] who handled my case, Dr. Liu, is one of the most experienced in the field and certainly is able to culture embryos to their greatest potentials! I remember one of mine was still in cleavage stage at day 5, but somehow it turned into a hatching blastocyst on day 6 under his treatment, and he also turned my two GV into M2, incredible!...
How was your experience with Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
I cannot express how lucky I was to have Dr. Goldstein as my RE, she is fantastic and helped me get the results that beyond my expectation. I have pretty low follicle counts comparing to other girls of my age, and my estradiol level was really low all the way through the stimulation. To cater for my personal situation, Dr. Goldstein would schedule additional appointments so she could closely monitor my follicle development and adjust meds based on my responses. Since my numbers were not so great, I had mentally prepared myself for a poor result. But it turned out, Dr. Goldstein was able to retrieve an optimal number of eggs that doubled my expectation and well enough for fertilization! I was so happy and surprised, and I don't think there could be any better results if not for her individualized adjustments on my protocol.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
Do some research before deciding on a doctor. Of course, if you do your research, you will find Dr. Goldstein is one of the best (the best for me that's for sure), and you'll be in competent hands. She is completely professional, knowledgeable, and the most charismatic doctor I've ever encountered. Trust people who recommend her here, good reviews don't write themselves.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
Dr. Goldstein is super reliable, compassionate and has the most steady hands. She answered every question I had and was always so gentle and calm while performing the ultrasound exam, and with great patience too. Besides, she is so skilled at her procedures that after my retrievals, I almost didn't feel a thing, and other patients I knew also didn't feel much pain and recovered very quickly. Dr. Goldstein has made this whole process so easy and comfortable.
Describe the protocols Ellen Goldstein used in your cycles at Beverly Hills Fertility and their degree of success.
I started with BCP suppression and then was given both Menopur and Follistim for stimulation, Dr. Goldstein started with small doses on me and added them incrementally throughout the process based on my responses, and I triggered with HCG. The eggs synchronized pretty nicely with 88% maturation rate.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Beverly Hills Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Sora)
Sora is amazing! She is caring and responsive, a big helper! And the whole team is great too! They always produce positive ambience, making my every visit an enjoyable experience.
Describe your experience with Beverly Hills Fertility.
This clinic has the full package. Not only does it have the best doctor, but it's also equipped with the best lab. The embryologist who handled my case, Dr. Liu, is one of the most experienced in the field and certainly is able to culture embryos to their greatest potentials! I remember one of mine was still in cleavage stage at day 5, but somehow it turned into a hatching blastocyst on day 6 under his treatment, and he also turned my two GV into M2, incredible!

Success w/ Doc Not sure
Not only is she [ Dr. Goldstein] extremely knowledgeable, but she is also compassionate and truly cares about her patients. She did not recommend procedures that were not necessary just to get my money like another doctor did. She explained every step of the process and answered every single one of my many questions. She never tried to rush me or make me feel stupid for asking so many questions. She also was extremely responsive over email...
All of the staff [at Beverly Hills Fertility] were friendly, the facility was clean and sanitary, and there were nice amenities in the lobby. The one downside was the parking options are not great...Always willing to help and very knowledgeable about my situation and the entire IVF process. Caring, compassionate, and responsive. I was kept in constant communication about any appointments or action items that needed to be done....

After seeing several other fertility doctors, I can honestly say Dr. Goldstein is one of the best!

Describe the protocols Ellen Goldstein used in your cycles at Beverly Hills Fertility and their degree of success.
I did an "old school" fresh IVF transfer. Given my age and budget, this was the best option. I used all medications as prescribed and was expecting about 5-6 eggs. However, Dr. Goldstein said that I most likely ovulated early because I only ending up getting 2 eggs and embryos out of the process. Unfortunately, neither embryo was viable. We talked after the process about what we will do differently for the next cycle and I felt confident going in to do another round.

Fantastic! Always willing to help and very knowledgeable about my situation and the entire IVF process. Caring, compassionate, and responsive. I was kept in constant communication about any appointments or action items that needed to be done.

I felt like she [Dr. Goldstein] really cared about me and was invested in my well being. As concierge as one can get in this field. She was down to earth and also incredibly smart and able to explain everything to me in terms I could easily digest. She was also very kind, friendly (and funny!)...kept me hopeful during a time where I needed to feel that more than anything else...She always kept the financial burden in mind....
I always felt so welcome and so taken care of [at Beverly Hills Fertility]. They are also pros at blood draws and they never hurt...The rooms are heated and there are flat screens showing you the ultrasound in each room. The day of my embryo transfer both my husband and I got to see on a flat screen the embryo being selected and brought in through the microscope...Erika and the rest of the staff are lovely...
How was your experience with Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Ellen Goldstein. I felt so well taken care of and supported during such a sensitive and vulnerable time. Dr. Goldstein was there for me whenever I needed her and really and truly cared about my well being...her staff is lovely and personable and I really felt like I was in the best hands possible. She is the gold standard of fertility doctors (well of any doctor really) and kept me hopeful during a time where I needed to feel that more than anything else. I recommend her to ANYONE who asks me. Look no further if you are reading this review. This is your sign to choose Dr. Goldstein!!!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
Trust the process and trust Dr. Goldstein!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ellen Goldstein at Beverly Hills Fertility?
I had heard horror stories that some IVF doctors made my friends feel like a number. This was the exact opposite of my experience with Dr. Goldstein. I felt like she really cared about me and was invested in my well being. As concierge as one can get in this field. She was down to earth and also incredibly smart and able to explain everything to me in terms I could easily digest. She was also very kind, friendly (and funny!) with me and my husband!
Describe the protocols Ellen Goldstein used in your cycles at Beverly Hills Fertility and their degree of success.
Dr. Goldstein made a point of not over-ordering medications so that I didn't spend more than I needed to in a costly process. Dr. Goldstein recommended IUI and IVF but at that time my husband and I were not ready for IVF and wanting to keep trying IUI's - along the way we found out I had polyps and I had those removed than after my third IUI, Dr. Goldstein had a sit down with us and recommended IVF moving forward for success reasons and financial reasons, which I really really appreciated. She always kept the financial burden in mind.

Describe your experience with Beverly Hills Fertility.
This clinic is gorgeous!!!! The waiting room is so luxurious and comfortable. The rooms are heated and there are flat screens showing you the ultrasound in each room. The day of my embryo transfer both my husband and I got to see on a flat screen the embryo being selected and brought in through the microscope. The embryologist was the cutest and he planned this lovely classical music. I could tell how much the staff loved their building and each other
