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. Lee takes a comprehensive approach, looking at many aspects of your life rather than just medical history. I felt like I was really heard and my preferences and comfort were taken into account in developing a treatment plan.... Strong communicator and willing to be flexible with your plan based on what works for you. He explained every step as he went so you truly get an idea of what is going on and what is to come. He listened to all concerns, answered all questions, and told us to call any time we had additional questions.
It [Fertility Care of OC] is a small office where the entire staff knows your name. You can get in quickly and you never wait more than a few minutes to be seen.... It’s a little more costly than others, but appears to have better results. You also have greater access to the nursing staff and doctor than other clinics. They’re up front about costs and checking with your insurance to see what is covered. I really like that it’s a small team and they can get you in without having to wait months on end.

Describe the protocols C. Terence Lee used in your cycles at Fertility Care of Orange County and their degree of success.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He [Dr. Lee] spent over an hour for our initial consultation and made us feel important and heard. I felt like he could easily rush us but he didn’t....My experience was that he was extremely thorough and during his assessment, he got to know us as a couple before anything else. I almost felt like it was a couples marital session. He is very gentle in his approach.
The waiting room [Fertility Care of Orange County] is average. Nice office building. Front desk fairly nice, always smiles. The nurses had some miscommunication but nothing major. First session was on time. Second the doctor was running 30 minutes late but the doctor is very thorough so it is understandable.... The initial consultation includes an ultrasound and was almost half less than two other clinics I had contacted.

Describe the protocols C. Terence Lee used in your cycles at Fertility Care of Orange County and their degree of success.
We have not done actual treatment yet as our only option is IVF and we’re saving money for it. He has been trying to see if I potentially have cysts so he prescribed birth control due to my irregular cycle in order to assess. He also made me feel that my own diagnosis of endometriosis is probably likely which explains so much that I was not aware of in the past 15 years.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Care of Orange County. (Assigned nurse: Grace)
Did not initially return my email until I sent another one and said something. It wasn’t that I had asked her anything but I felt she should acknowledge receipt, especially since it was my first email to the clinic.
