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.

He [Dr. Smotrich] has put me on progesterone and estrace, gonal f, and chlomid. Non resulted in pregnancy...Dr had a strong preference that I stop iui and go to ivf...would be in a rush to see other patients so he would cut you off when you tried to talk...He had a plan and stuck to it. Every failed iui he would say the next one will be it. Then after so many failed IUI’s he said we need to do ivf but we don’t have the funds to do that. He was clear about the process of IUI’s. He had trouble with the vaginal ultrasound machine. It was painful because he would jerk it around a lot because he could see what he needed to see. Eventually he’d tell the nurse to close the blinds so he could see better. After I was in pain.
The cost for an iui alone [at La Jolla IVF] was 1300, the gonal f was a few hundred dollars. They had a pharmacy in the same building...The Clinic was very clean and very organized. The wait time varies. I waited for 5 minutes on some visits and the. Maybe 20 minutes for other visits. They try and get you in and out as quickly as possible...The nurses were the best thing about the clinic. One nurse went above and beyond with the patients. They talk to you like a friend
