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 Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.
This whole process can be VERY overwhelming with decisions that need to be made - everyone here is so friendly and approachable, if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask them! Also, if you need help being shown how to administer any of the medications, they will show you and give you some tips and tricks to help make the process easier.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?
I continue to feel supported by not only Dr. Naj, but the entire staff. They greet me by name, they are available to answer any and all questions, they patiently explain and demonstrate various procedures. Dr. Naj is warm, kind, and answers every question and collaborates when it comes to treatment options.

He is incredibly thorough with his explanations, he will answer every question that you may have without any trace of condescension.

I've never felt like a statistic under his care, even while we are experiencing obstacles he will explain his thought process for changing treatments or trying new and different things. As difficult as this journey has been, having someone with his expertise in your corner feels invaluable.

Don't be afraid to ask questions. Ask as much as you can, as often as you can!
Describe the protocols Sam Najmabadi used in your cycles at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology and their degree of success.
First cycle was a medicated IUI with donor sperm. Medication was letrozole because my AMH is a little low. My follicles didn't grow while on letrozole, we learned that I am resistant to the medication. So we tried injectables (Menapur) - I responded better to that. We continued to use Menapur for the next two IUI's. No pregnancies resulted, so I am now considering moving to IVF.

Describe your experience with Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.
The clinic is clean and bright. Parking is underneath the building. They take card. It can add up a bit, but depending on the time of the day you can’t park on the street. The main entrance is off the street and not from the lobby when you enter the building from the parking lot.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?
Dr. Najmabadi is respectful. He is somewhat brusk at times when explaining things. He appears rushed at times, and is not always great at breaking things down in layman's terms. However, he also could be compassionate and empathetic when things did not go the way we had hoped. I think at times I felt like we were being rushed forward without a lot of time to think.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology. (Assigned nurse: Spencer the ultrasound technician and Selene )
Spencer, the utlrasound tech, is amazing. She makes you feel at ease and always makes sure to say hi when you are there even if you are not seeing her that day. Selene is also great and compassionate. She is awesome at explaining everything and will answer your repeat questions many times. She is also very gentle with taking blood.
How was your experience with Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?
He is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced in his field. He does take the time to explain and answer questions, but sometimes it does feel rushed. He doesn’t use layman’s terms which could be intimidating for someone who is completely knew to the entire process. While I think he does show compassion and empathy, something felt like it was missing. It is hard to put into words, but I realized it after meeting with another doctor for a second opinion who just put us at ease from the moment we met him. I think Dr. Najmabadi is a fast paced person in general, and I think sometimes that makes it feel like you are being rushed through the process.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions or ask him to slow down a little bit. While I understood much of what he was saying, my husband did not. And even with my general understanding, there were times when I needed to ask for more information. Doctors are used to their terms and lingo, and I think it's probably easy to forget that not everyone has the same understanding.
Describe the protocols Sam Najmabadi used in your cycles at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology and their degree of success.
I started with him mid-cycle while doing letrozole from my OB. We did another medicated and monitored cycle with a trigger shot and timed intercourse. That cycled ended in a chemical pregnancy. During that cycle he realized my lining was thin and appeared thinner because of the medication. We then moved on to IUIs with gonal f. I don’t remember the dosage of them, but the first 2 were the same and we increased the dose with the 3rd. All were negative. Also between the first and second IUI I had a cyst that we had to wait to go away. He started with the method of seeing if my body got rid of it on its own rather than birth control or removal (it did thankfully). When we stopped working with Dr. Najmabadi, we were deciding to move forward with IVF. We went for a second opinion, and decided to continue with the new doctor that we met. It was not that the new doctor provided a different plan or protocol than Dr. Najmabadi, but rather we just felt more comfortable with the new doctor in the end.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.
I cannot remember the cost of the medicated cycles (no IUI). The costs of the IUIs were between $2500-$3000 depending on the medications. They have medications onsite which makes it easier. The progesterone tabs are about $60 for 20 I think. The IVF is about $11,000 not including medications.
Describe Sam Najmabadi's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.
We did not do IVF with him.

[Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology] is small. Some people prefer more doctors and more going on, this feels very boutique. I don't love Yolanda in administration. She has said frustrating and ignorant things, like asking me where my other baby is when I came in for one of my transfers. I don't have a baby...There are times I felt like I was being brushed off as emotional. It a was brief, but I felt it.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?
Dr. Naj and all of the staff seem to take extra care to make me feel human, important, valued, and not alone. They always know who I am when calling, when I come in, they know exactly what stage I'm at.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
There are times when I don't feel the communication is at its best. Once I had to double check instructions that were given because I was pretty sure the dosage was wrong - and it was. That could have been a big problem. However, I mentioned it to the doctor, and I don't ever remember seeing that nurse again. Other than that, I have loved the nurses. They feel with me - good and bad. I don't ever feel like I am annoying them or asking too many questions.
What specific things went wrong at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?
I appreciate that Dr. Naj tells it like it is. I also feel he doesn't over-tell. I have friends undergoing treatment who ask me things about levels and numbers and certain hormones that I have no idea what they're talking about....and for me, I like that. When my second IVF didn't take, I felt like Dr. Naj almost took it harder than I did! He is invested in what he does.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.
IUIs started at $1000 before meds, and increased as meds increased. IVF started at $8900 and then meds, plus ICSI, plus storage fees added up.

He always took the time to explain everything to us, and was very straight forward. He heard everything we said, and didnt beat around the bush.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.

How was your experience with Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?
The nurses are very friendly and competant, the facility is a nice, calming environment. dr Naj is fantastic. He doesnt coddle, and tells it like it is, but showed a strong respect for my need to understand everything technically. He spent all the time we wanted explaining every step and every decision we needed to make. Something I found as a rarity amongst other doctors.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology?
Understand he isnt someone who will sit and cry with you. He's an intelligent, compassionate man who is trying to help you achieve your goal. He delivers good and bad news as straight forward as possible. He's well informed, and very good at what he does. I highly recommend him.
Describe the protocols Sam Najmabadi used in your cycles at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology and their degree of success.
I had to have high dosages of all of the drugs as I wasnt reacting. My egg quality was poor, but Dr Naj respected my need to oursue alternative medicine before I was ready for egg donation. He recommended people to help me, and I ultimately came back to proceed with him. We now have healthy, beautiful twins.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sam Najmabadi at Center for Reproductive Health and Gynecology.
Roughly $17,000 for IVF but I needed a very large dosage of the medications (which was purchased through a pharmacy but included in that quote)
