7.1
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.

Dr. Gleicher was the first doctor to look deeply into my medical history to find potential causes and possible remedies for my infertility...when my previous doctor had just immediately recommended I use donor eggs after my first failed IVF attempt.... Take notes, Write down all questions and be prepared for your consultation, don't be afraid to ask for clarification on everything. All the information is overwhelming, at a very emotional time and it's easy to miss things...each consultation is very expensive so be sure to do your best to cover everything in one session.
Office staff slightly disorganized but does do their best to help in a timely fashion.... There was a window set for monitoring. The earlier you got there the better.... The nursing staff was generally accomodating, knowledgeable and friendly....

He [Dr. Gleicher] seems to care more about making money off of me rather than trying to treat me...Not a good communicator, not compassionate, cold personality...
This clinic [Ctr for Human Reproduction] was very anxious to have me start my IVF cycle. My insurance did not cover the IVF cycle at all. The clinic also failed to provide the pre-authorization needed for my insurance to cover some of the costs of the medications. I ended up spending thousands of dollars more because of the clinic not providing me with specific prep information for my IVF cycle...

What specific things went wrong at Center for Human Reproduction?
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Center for Human Reproduction.
The pre authorization for my prescriptions were not sent in a timely manner. I had to pay for my prescriptions out of pocket because of the timeliness of when I had to take the injections and my pre authorization was sent after I already paid for my prescriptions. This caused a major issue with my health insurance company as I have to now go through the appeal process.

Dr. Barad is a skilled, experienced, and honest physician that keeps communication as one of the key elements in their relationship with the patient. Even when things did not go as expected, they made sure to comfort me and maintained a positive attitude without being unrealistic. I will never forget the day Dr. Barad did my embryo transfer and held my hand, I could imagine his smile through his face mask, and his eyes told me “Everything is going to be ok”.
Everyone in CHR is friendly, kind, and considered, from the front desk ladies to the nurses, labs techs, etc., you don’t’ have to talk to answering machines or leave messages that no one ever responds, you don’t feel that you are just a number like in other centers. They all make sure you have a great experience since day one.

Describe the protocols David Barad used in your cycles at Center for Human Reproduction and their degree of success.
I am a poor responder with DOR, the treatment included CoQ10 and DHEA for at least 3 months and then the stimulations were with high doses of Menopur and Follistim. I also did steroids and aspirin as well as Lovenox, estrogen, and progesterone after the transfer.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Center for Human Reproduction. (Assigned nurse: Maria Daskalakis)
My nurse Maria is someone I will always remember with special affection. Maria was always so caring, she made sure I felt comfortable, and that all the instructions were clear. She was always so easy to reach and always went beyond expectations during my cycles. Even if she had to call with not-so-good news, she found ways to keep my spirit positive.

Dr. Barad is kind, compassionate, and warm. He's also scientific and knowledgable. He took time to explain things to me, address concerns, and alter the program when needed. I felt a sense of calm every time I met with him--whether it was for a check on where I was in my cycle or for an actual transfer...We transferred two embryos three times due to advanced maternal age..
They were efficient. I have a very busy work schedule and I could count on them generally running on time every morning I visited...CHR's strengths lie in their mix of science and compassion. They were absolutely wonderful every step of this journey, which is extremely challenging. I didn't visit other clinics, so I don't know how to evaluate weaknesses without comparison...

Dr. Barad is kind, compassionate, and warm. He's also scientific and knowledgable. He took time to explain things to me, address concerns, and alter the program when needed. I felt a sense of calm every time I met with him--whether it was for a check on where I was in my cycle or for an actual transfer.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Barad at Center for Human Reproduction?
Listen to him. He's an expert, and the guidance and advice he provides is invaluable.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Barad at Center for Human Reproduction?
At 44 years old, I'm sixth months pregnant, and I owe it all to the wonderful doctors, nurses, and staff at CHR. When I first visited them, I was completely green at the world of IVF. I knew I was at an advanced age for conceiving my first child, so I went to them immediately when I made the decision to try. I hadn't looked on blogs or read books or talked to a million friends about the process. What I found at CHR was a group of people who were willing to hold my hand and be there for me every step of the way. Their townhouse office felt warm and welcoming--not cold and clinical, and everyone I encountered had the exact same effect on me. In addition to that familiar feeling, the doctors are absolute experts approaching each case on an individual level and with the deepest scientific rigor. As we went through the process, the doctors were constantly monitoring my levels and tweaking the program to achieve the best results. Although it was disappointing to not have the first transfer work, I knew there was hope and that they would do everything to figure out a way to succeed. When I found out that I was pregnant after my fourth transfer, watching the embryo grow for several weeks with regular visits was magical. I found it difficult to say goodbye when I was released to my OB-GYN, but I felt comfortable and confident because they helped me find the right OB for the next part of my journey.
Describe the protocols David Barad used in your cycles at Center for Human Reproduction and their degree of success.
I don't remember the drugs for the retrieval--Gonal, the trigger shot. That's about it. For the transfers, I used progesterone by mouth and injection as well as estrogen by mouth and injection, and Lovenox as well as baby aspiring. For two cycles, I had an IVIG transfusion to deal with clotting antibodies being very high.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Center for Human Reproduction.
Warm and friendly--but they certainly kept the train running on schedule especially when things were busy. They also took time to explain all the medications and how to properly administer them. Which is tricky!

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Center for Human Reproduction.
They were efficient. I have a very busy work schedule and I could count on them generally running on time every morning I visited.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Barad at Center for Human Reproduction.
I am very fortunate in that they were covered by insurance.
Describe David Barad's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Center for Human Reproduction.
We transferred two embryos three times due to advanced maternal age. On the fourth try, only one of the two thawed.

Dr Gleicher took time to personally address our many questions and apprehensions...We found him to be accessible and approachable, besides the obvious, extremely knowledgeable expert in his field...Of note was his unshakeable confidence in his ability to succeed, and to tailor a plan to address the underlying conditions that were standing in our way..

How was your experience with Norbert Gleicher at Center for Human Reproduction?
Our first interaction with Dr Gleicher began with a long distance telephone consultation, whereby we shared with him our past failures at another clinic, and he reviewed the file, and provided his expert opinion on what needed to be adjusted in order to succeed. Of note was his unshakeable confidence in his ability to succeed, and to tailor a plan to address the underlying conditions that were standing in our way. We found him to be very approachable and tolerant of our perhaps pesky needs and wants, questions and concerns, and were consistently eased by the knowledge that his experience with cases like ours is second to none, and that we were in the right place.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Norbert Gleicher at Center for Human Reproduction?
I read that some people find his tone or communication a bit dry or sometimes short. I find him to be very to the point, concise, and precise. Understand that while we may interrogate him based on our limited knowledge, obtained from reading blogs and books, Dr G has devoted his entire career to mastering his craft, in fact authoring many of those blogs and books, so provided certain decision milestones, I would encourage you to defer to Dr G, and trust his ability to succeed. I feel that had we done things differently at our own insistence (frozen transfer vs fresh in order to facilitate gender testing, etc), we would have introduced additional risks that would have affected outcome, while not really being that important to the very binary objective of having a family, or not. In that sense, put your trust in Dr G, that's what you're there for, that's what you're paying for, and let him do what he does best.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Norbert Gleicher at Center for Human Reproduction?
Dr Gleicher took time to personally address our many questions and apprehensions, putting us at ease that, while our hopes and prior experiences were low, that he WOULD succeed. We found him to be accessible and approachable, besides the obvious, extremely knowledgeable expert in his field.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Center for Human Reproduction.
Staff was very cordial and kind and informative, putting us at ease at each step along the way. Of honorable mention was Dr Molinari, CHR's embryologist. Dr Molinari seems to understand and appreciate the fact that this process is emotionally stressful and difficult for patients, and she went above and beyond to put us at ease and to elaborate on the pros and cons of certain techniques, keeping us informed and assured along the way.
Describe your experience with Center for Human Reproduction.
We happened upon CHR via our extensive research process, following a failed attempt at another clinic in FL. We were told by IVFMD of Florida that we couldn't have a baby without an egg donor; refusing to accept that heartbreaking news as reality, we thankfully sought a second opinion. At our first consultation via telephone, Dr Gleicher expressed utmost confidence in his ability to manage our case, and in his ability to succeed in helping us have a family. Dr G seems to specialize in difficult cases like ours, and has perfected his approach to maximizing success with same. His staff is incredibly talented, knowledgeable and kind, putting us at ease and walking us thru each step of the way. Having the benefit of perspective of multiple clinics and experiences (and outcomes!), we unabashedly recommend CHR to ANYBODY facing this stressful and agonizing process, and wish them all the best in making their dreams come true. We welcomed our little girl into the world in Dec 2020, and are forever grateful to God and the exceptional team at CHR that made it possible.

They've [Center for Human Reproduction nurses] made themselves available and address any concerns or questions that I may have...The clinic is warm, inviting, and clean. The staff are professional, kind, helpful, and just absolutely wonderful. Dr. Barad deserves a cape because he is a true superhero in my eyes! I knew immediately after our first Zoom consultation that he is the doctor that I need in my life. Someone who actually looks at you, not through you. He is delicate, personable, and makes you feel like you're not a science experiment
How was your experience with David Barad at Center for Human Reproduction?
Dr. Barad is a kind professional who makes you feel like you're family. He listens to your concerns and covers all topics tactfully. I have wanted to visit CHR for many years ever since I became infertile and I feel so blessed that I'm now a patient of Dr. Barad.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Barad at Center for Human Reproduction?
My only advice is that he is the best and that, if you want to be cared for, you should see Dr. Barad. He specializes in premature ovarian failure, which is incredibly rare. Him and the other doctor are constantly seeking ways to improve fertility and I am just forever grateful.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Barad at Center for Human Reproduction?
CHR is the absolute best! I live in Florida and have made Dr. Barad my official RE after going through a clinical study with him. He is the kindest, most knowledgeable RE I have yet to meet. I've pretty much exhausted all options in FL because I visited the top two REs in my area (Orlando) and they were terrible and my experiences were traumatic. I then moved on to another RE in Winter Park but the clinic (and doctor) are nothing like CHR. From the front desk staff to the nurses, all the way upstairs to the Phlebotomist who took my blood. They were ALL soooo amazing. I was just absolutely stunned. But, of course, my favorite person there is Dr. Barad. He treats you like you're family. He looks at you in the eyes like you're a real human being. He treats you like you're competent and doesn't explain simple concepts to you as if you were a child. I had absolutely no negative feelings about my entire experience. I am actually going back next Friday and my husband and I are both excited. Can you imagine being excited to travel to NY during a pandemic to have sharp needles stuck in your arms and to have another procedure? Yes, excited! THAT is how wonderful CHR is. Oh and also I wanted to mention that Lori (Lorenis) has been incredibly communicative and helpful the entire 2+ months that I've been "working" with her. I can't imagine going anywhere else for this. I have found my RE and I couldn't be more grateful.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Center for Human Reproduction. (Assigned nurse: Lorenis Espinosa)
Lori and the others have been so kind, helpful, and thoughtful. Their communication skills are wonderful, which had me worried at first since I am in Florida and they are in New York. But I quickly realized I had nothing to worry about, regardless of the distance! They've made themselves available and address any concerns or questions that I may have. The nursing staff are soooo much better than the ones I've dealt with at other clinics.
Describe your experience with Center for Human Reproduction.
The clinic is warm, inviting, and clean. The staff are professional, kind, helpful, and just absolutely wonderful. Dr. Barad deserves a cape because he is a true superhero in my eyes! I knew immediately after our first Zoom consultation that he is the doctor that I need in my life. Someone who actually looks at you, not through you. He is delicate, personable, and makes you feel like you're not a science experiment. If only I could explain how traumatized I was after going to two different REs, you would understand that CHR is the absolute best in my mind. I would strongly encourage any woman, especially one dealing with POF/POI, to see Dr. Barad or to visit CHR.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Barad at Center for Human Reproduction.
Well, so far I have only had to pay consult fees and $1,500 for PRP but that was part of a clinical trial. I have not actually gone through IVF yet.
