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.

Erica Wang is conservative in treatment, your overall health is of utmost importance, she is optimistic and gives hope even when dealing with the difficult topic of infertility. She is very clear in her explanations and why certain treatments are being chosen over others, she values your voice in discussing overall treatment plan and care.... First 2 IUIs was with letrozole , with letrozole being chosen because it showed more success with PCOS. Next 7 IUIs was with clomid because my body responded better to the Clomid. Next was an egg retrieval cycle that would be a frozen embryo transfer after genetic testing.
The entire staff [Cedars-Sinai] is knowledgeable and familiar with the most current/ up to date infertility treatments. They are open and honest from the beginning that this is a journey that will take time. During failures and loss, they hold your hand and continue to stay positive and give you hope. They answer all questions no matter how crazy.... Nursing staff was amazing, many had gone through fertility treatments as well so have their personal stories of success and failure

Describe the protocols Erica Wang used in your cycles at Cedars-Sinai Fertility and Reproductive Medicine Center and their degree of success.
First 2 IUIs was with letrozole , with letrozole being chosen because it showed more success with PCOS. Next 7 IUIs was with clomid because my body responded better to the Clomid. Next was an egg retrieval cycle that would be a frozen embryo transfer after genetic testing. Started with Estrace prior to cycle day one, then ultrasound on cycle day 2 and started injections that night. The injection protocol was 2 injections the first few nights, then added another to ward off ovulation, then trigger shot prior to egg retrieval. Unfortunately the egg retrieval did not produce embryos for transfer.

She [Dr. Wang] treated me af a person and tried to address my strange and difficult case...She was patient in answering all my questions however in my situation there are things no one can explain. She wanted to jump into IVF, but I still wanted to try naturally since the odds were still in my favor... I needed 2 dncs for that pregnancy and now may have scar tissue. I have a hysteroscopy scheduled July 19th to check. The strange thing is the genetics tests came back normal for both my partner and myself. It's a situation no one can explain.
They [staff at Cedars-Sinai] are very knowledgeable and lay options out clearly. Clean facility with kind staff. Front desk is very kind.

Dr. Pisarska was patient, knowledge and highly skilled...She took her time and really got to know me and my husband.
...The best part of Dr. Pisarska's practice is her staff. I loved the nurses and was sad when it was time to move on to our OB as they became a welcomed, comforting presence in a long and sometimes disappointing arduous journey.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Cedars-Sinai Fertility and Reproductive Medicine Center.
I love Dr. Pisarska, but her nursing staff was my favorite part of my visit. They remembered everything, were emotionally invested in my care and always made each visit a pleasant experience. They set the bar so high that the nurses at my OB's office nor the hospital where I delivered, could ever live up to their level of care and compassion.
