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. Witten is one of a kind. He was very caring and compassionate towards us, and went above and beyond to make sure we never left an appointment with questions. He used pictures to describe what was happening. He always remembered to ask about our son and made an effort to support my husband through this experience as well.... Dr. Witten and his entire staff treated my husband and I like family. They took a real interest in our situation, and did everything they could for us.
Mickey [a nurse at Comprehensive Infertility Services] was amazing. She has a nurturing and "mom" approach. She always made sure we understood everything before leaving, and didn't mind at all when I called her back 3 hours later with the same questions... Strengths: excellent staff, easy to get appointments Weaknesses: you have to do IVF at Sher Institute, but they are fabulous as well!
