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.

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.

Describe your experience with Caperton Fertility Institute.
CFI is awesome. They've never been anything but efficient, kind and caring with us. I've had to ask a handful of times for clarification on plans but that's it. They do have a lower threshold for recommending IVF than the other clinic in the area but in my case is was my only option anyway as my tubes are blocked. They also do ICSI and genetic screening for everybody, which is a controversial approach (but again, indicated for me), so be sure to do research and ask questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute?
His staff knows your name when you walk in the door. They ask how you're doing. They're compassionate and friendly.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Caperton Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Ashley Vigil)
Ashley is so kind and helpful. I can email her anytime with questions and she gets back to me so quickly.
What specific things went wrong at Caperton Fertility Institute?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
How was your experience with Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute?
Dr. Caperton is a perfectionist. He will tweak, adjust and individualize your protocol based on what he sees. He's not always great at explaining his "why" so you frequently have to pin him down and ask him to explain himself, but he will. He is very blunt about prognosis and plans, but he absolutely cares. He'll adjust your pillow during an ultrasound or come chat even when there's not a specific clinical concern.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute?
Keep asking questions until you're satisfied with the answer and ready to move forward.
Describe the protocols Lee Caperton used in your cycles at Caperton Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I was initially on lupron and birth control for suppression, he added poor responder meds to my stim cycle when my suppressed AFC was low (testosterone and HGH). He plans to suppress me between retrieval and transfer because I have endometriosis.

Describe Lee Caperton's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Caperton Fertility Institute.
Dr. Caperton feels very strongly about only transferring one genetically normal embryo and recommends PGS for this reason.

Describe your experience with Caperton Fertility Institute.
A strength that the clinic has is it’s waiting room. It may seem silly but they offer free water, coffee, tea or soda. It helped me feel more calm and relaxed to have a waiting room like this. One weakness I’ve noticed is that they don’t keep great record of the deposit you pay. When making my first appointment I had to make a $50 deposit. If your copay was less then they would refund the money or keep it as a credit for the next visit. I had to tell them that I made that payment and had credit. Once I mentioned it hey found the info so it didn’t Cause any problems.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute?
Dr. Caperton takes the time to explain the process. He has seen it all so he is able to answer any question. I have endometriosis and he is a specialists in endo so he was able to help me understand my condition better. The staff is amazing at making you feel like this process isn’t crazy and hard.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Caperton Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Ashley )
The whole staff is amazing. They try and make your experience there pleasant. The coordinator that I was assignmed to is amazing. She took the time to go over everything with us. She gave us a calendar that explained when we will do the shots and medicine, when we go in for ultrasounds and when we will do the retrieval. She sent us home with a packet of info. She gave us her direct number and said to call if we have any questions. She is definitely there for us. Even though we aren’t the clinics only patients, they make us feel like we are with the time and care they show us.
How was your experience with Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute?
Dr. Caperton has been through the ivf process with his wife. He knows the concerns and the stress. He talked us through everything. He is very personable and helpful. He also helps with keeping things light and fun. Yes, this can be a stressful time but while with him you don’t feel the stress. My husband and I always leave his office feeling prepared.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute?
Don’t be afraid to ask anything. He will always give you an honest answer.
Describe the protocols Lee Caperton used in your cycles at Caperton Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
One thing that I like that he does with protocol is preparing the uterus. I know not all fertility clinics do this. He spends a few months getting the uterus ready to carry a baby to term.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute.
The whole thing cost around $22,000. There were three different payments. One to the clinic, one to the pharmacy for all the medication and one for anastegiologist. With the clinic it was about $17,900. That includes all the monitoring, retrieval of eggs, genetic testing, assisted hacking, transfer, 10 week monitor and more. The pharmacy was for all the medication that I have to inject. And the last is for the retrieval.
Describe Lee Caperton's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Caperton Fertility Institute.
Dr. Caperton spent lots of money and time to research and figure out the safest way to do eset. He only does single transfers unless the parents otherwise directs him.

The new Clinic [Caperton Fertility Institute] is state of the art. Lots of windows and light. The lobby and waiting area is designed to make you feel at home, which it definitely accomplishes. It alsmost has a spa-like feel instead of a medical clinic. Now I will tell you that at first these superficial things did not necessarily sway me, as I feel like the doctor and Staff are more important than the shiny Office. But I do think the new Office helps you relax a bit more and decreases some anxiety you may have. All of this to say, don’t let the fancy new Office be a turn off to you. The Clinic is big, but don’t let that scare you away thinking that the doctor won’t have time for you or won’t have time to answer questions. They take as much time as you need and always tell you there is no rush and are available for questions or concerns.

Describe your experience with Caperton Fertility Institute.
I have followed Dr. Caperton from his clinic he shared with Dr. Thompson to the new practice, Caperton Fertility, so I can describe both clinics. At the previous Clinic, the location was in the basement of a hospital which was a bit odd. While it felt private it also felt very dark and like a cave, but that did not bother me too much. The new Clinic is state of the art. Lots of windows and light. The lobby and waiting area is designed to make you feel at home, which it definitely accomplishes. It alsmost has a spa-like feel instead of a medical clinic. Now I will tell you that at first these superficial things did not necessarily sway me, as I feel like the doctor and Staff are more important than the shiny Office. But I do think the new Office helps you relax a bit more and decreases some anxiety you may have. All of this to say, don’t let the fancy new Office be a turn off to you. The Clinic is big, but don’t let that scare you away thinking that the doctor won’t have time for you or won’t have time to answer questions. They take as much time as you need and always tell you there is no rush and are available for questions or concerns.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute?
Dr. Caperton has a large Clinic but always remembered who I was and took the time to answer questions candidly. I never felt like he was too busy to answer my questions—no matter how small or silly the question seemed. His staff is the same way—very caring and helpful. They are very invested in helping you achieve your goals.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Caperton Fertility Institute.
The nursing staff is fantastic. They are friendly, approachable, caring, and knowledgeable. I felt like they became my cheerleaders and support system through this process. They answered any questions I had or were able to find the answers for me. They were always very supportive and positive—even when I sometimes was not optimistic. They were genuinely excited for my successes as if we were friends instead of in a professional relationship capacity.
How was your experience with Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute?
Dr. Caperton was always available to answer questions I had. He was receptive to concerns and was willing to explain why his plan was a better idea than yours if that was the case. He was still willing to go your way if that was a safe plan and your wish after hearing him out. He always took the time to make sure I was comfortable with the plan and procedure, without feeling like I was being rushed. While he has a good bedside manner and can treat you delicately if need be, I don’t feel like he ever sugarcoated things. He was honest about the potential for risks and the potential results. Personally, he is charming and funny which helps put you at ease.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute?
Don’t judge a book by its cover—he is good-looking which for some people can be off-putting or make you think he is just a pretty face or arrogant. He is good at what he does and I felt comfortable working with him and have been a patient for 7 years now. If you have questions, don’t be afraid to ask them—even if you think they are silly or dumb questions. He will take the time needed.
Describe the protocols Lee Caperton used in your cycles at Caperton Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I first decided to start with trying IUI using donor sperm. Dr. Caperton suggested this approach as it was the least invasive and least expensive. These cycles involved using Clomid because I have PCOS. The first two cycles produced no pregnancies. The third cycle produced a pregnancy which I carried to full-term. He caught a thyroid problem very early on and remedied it which I was extremely grateful for. After that, I tried 7-8 more IUI cycles before deciding to switch to IVF. He was willing to let me continue with IUIs but I decided that if I was going to keep spending all that money, I might as well go the IVF route with hopefully better chances of success. I completed one IVF egg retrieval cycle which produced 20 eggs. 5 of those made it to the embryo stage and were genetically sound. The genetic testing done gave us information about the quality of the embryos but also the gender of each embryo. I completed one frozen transfer with one embryo which produced a negative pregnancy test. Next frozen embryo transfer cycle I chose to put 2 embryos in. Because of a uterine anomaly I have he was more Inclined to take a conservative approach and only put one embryo in, but allowed me to put 2 embryos in explaining the risks. My pregnancy test came back positive this time. I started off with 2 embryos and 2 heartbeats. Around 11 weeks I lost one, but successfully carried the second to full term.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute.
My health insurance does not cover any infertility costs. This meant I was considered “self-pay” and because of that, the Clinic offers you a discount. My IUI cycles ranged from $600-1000 including the IUI transfer, and ultrasound(s)—some of those cycles warranted more than one ultrasound. My IVF retrieval including one transfer, genetic testing, and all required medications cost around $16-18K, with my insurance covering some of the medication cost, and applying for a discounted pharmacy to begin with.
Describe Lee Caperton's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Caperton Fertility Institute.
Dr. Caperton takes a more conservative approach. He will likely not be willing to put an excessive amount of embryos in because as he told me they are more interested in success of healthy babies rather than quantity of babies. I appreciate this because in the end you want a healthy baby, not 3 babies who may have health issues, right? He is not closed to hearing your arguments about wanting to put more than one in, just don’t expect him to agree to putting in more than 2-3 depending on your medical situation. I was able to select which embryo(s) to put in. In other words, if you have both male and female embryos you can choose which to put in. This can be disconcerting for some, or exciting that they can predetermine which gender they put in.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute?
Trust the process.
Describe the protocols Lee Caperton used in your cycles at Caperton Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
Dr. Caperton began or process with suggested IUI. After several failed attempts and one miscarriage, he consulted with us and advised us to consider IVF and genetic testing. We ultimately because of cost decided to continue trying via IUI. Unfortunately, we were not successful. We again consulted with Dr. Caperton and with his guidance decided to obtain a loan to begin the process of IVF. We are currently in the middle of this process. We've already gone through egg retrieval l, however we are waiting to undergo the transfer as I am currently being treated for endometriosis.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute.
Our insurance does not provide infertility coverage. Typically, IUIs cost us near $500. The IVF process has cost us around $22,000.
Describe Lee Caperton's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Caperton Fertility Institute.
Dr. Caperton strongly recommends single egg retrieval as he believes that the risk of having multiples outweighs the gains of success. We agree with this as well.

How was your experience with Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute?
I was initially able to call and email Dr. Caperton. He got more busy as time went on, and then he was less communicative. He has a humorous manner which is sometimes relaxing and sometimes off-putting. He performed several surgeries on me. He seems to diagnoses septate uterus and adenomyosis more than other doctors.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lee Caperton at Caperton Fertility Institute?
Don't take his jokes seriously.
Describe the protocols Lee Caperton used in your cycles at Caperton Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I did egg retrieval. I was on menopur and follistim, and used shots of human growth hormone. I was on a lower dose of follistim (I think 150mg) than most because I had diminished ovarian reserve (low AMH), and he felt over-stimulating was bad for egg quality. I was also given an androgen gel for my arm early in the cycle, and I may have used Ganirelix at the end, but I can't remember. I only had one egg at the start, I wound up with six collected, four fertilized and made it to day 3, one made it to day 5, and PGS tested normal. The eggs were fertilized with ICSI. I had thyroid problems and uterine problems. I wound up on Lupron. I don't know if it helped or not. I wound up not completing a transfer at this clinic because I felt the doctor was overstretched.
