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.

She is very kind and helpful. She always explains things well and let's me make the final decisions. She's always made time for me last minute as needed for IUIs and follicle checks.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kimberly Schumacher at Chena OBGYN?
While fertility is not a primary focus of their practice they have always made time for my needs and provided great service. My Dr. would frequently change her personal work schedule to ensure that she was there when needed during my cycle. She has come in at 10pm and over the weekend to do follicle checks and IUIs.
Describe the protocols Kimberly Schumacher used in your cycles at Chena OBGYN and their degree of success.
Began with diagnostic including vaginal ultrasound. Found endometrium was very think and diagnosed endometrial hyperplasia. Underwent D&C to remove excess buildup of endometrium. After D&C was on daily progesterone for six months. After six months did biopsy and ultrasound to confirm that endometrium was now normal. Proceeded with fertility evaluation. Conducted HSG to evaluate Fallopian tubes. Found complete blockage of one tube. Continued with fertility treatments. Started with lowest dosage of clomid prescription to encourage ovulation. After evidence of clomid success moved forward to clomid + IUI. After 5 unsuccessful rounds of IUI added follicle check and HCG trigger shot to process. Have found that most ovulation occurs on side with blocked tube. Proceeded to have two more IUIs with trigger shot when follicle check showed mature follicles on unblocked tube. After no success Dr. has recommended removal of blocked tube via laparoscopy. This will also give her the opportunity to better assess the environment and remove any endometriosis if found. Planning to undergo this surgery in the next few months. We will then proceed with additional attempts at home and possibly via IUI.
