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.

She is very knowledgeable and always changed treatment methods to adjust for what was best for my body. She always prepared us for all outcomes but had confidence in her ability to get us the outcome we desired. ... She [Dr. Arnold] remembers my step kids names, my husband name, my job, my interests... it is a smaller, boutique type treatment center and she only takes a certain number of clients at a time. ... She ultimately will only transfer 2 embryos if you’re a healthy young female.
It is a smaller clinic [CACRM], which feels more personal. They only have a few clients at a time, so you won’t feel like a number or another dollar sign. It is calm, quiet and personal. There aren’t a million doctors who don’t know you walking around the office. The entire staff will know your face and name... it’s like a family in there. ... Our care coordinator was warm, caring and became a friend over this process.

How was your experience with Lori Arnold at California Center for Reproductive Medicine?
She is amazing. We tried 3 different times to get pregnant and each time she was rooting for us so hard. She is very knowledgeable and always changed treatment methods to adjust for what was best for my body. She always prepared us for all outcomes but had confidence in her ability to get us the outcome we desired.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lori Arnold at California Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Don’t wait! Go sooner rather than later, the process may take longer or be more expensive than you had planned. It’s best to be prepared and Lori Arnold can prepare you!

Describe your experience with California Center for Reproductive Medicine.
It is a smaller clinic, which feels more personal. They only have a few clients at a time, so you won’t feel like a number or another dollar sign. It is calm, quiet and personal. There aren’t a million doctors who don’t know you walking around the office. The entire staff will know your face and name... it’s like a family in there.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lori Arnold at California Center for Reproductive Medicine.
My insurance didn’t cover IVF itself. It covered some of the testing. It was about $12,000 for my cycle. Plus the cost of medications (about $3,000). And $5,000 for a frozen embryo transfer.
Describe Lori Arnold's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at California Center for Reproductive Medicine.
She ultimately will only transfer 2 embryos if you’re a healthy young female. She isn’t against it. She will not do anything that will potentially harm her patient... so, if she thinks more than 2 embryos will stick, she will not put more than 2 in. She will also make sure you are ok with multiples if she puts 2 in.

Dr. Mor never came off as superior and would give me the time necessary during my appointments, to cover all my concerns, in great detail.
...there seemed to always be a need to follow up with the nursing staff to insure time sensitive dates with regards to medications and dosing, were closely monitored. I had to stay on top of my regimen.
