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.

For both cycles I had a total of 9,000IUs of Gonal-F + 10 injections of Ganirelix 250mcg + 125IUs of Low Dose hCG + 10,000IUs of Pregnyl used. 20 tablets of Doxycycl Hycl 100MG. as antibiotic for the 5 days following the egg retrieval procedure...
All nurses [at Fertility Institute of New Jersey] who assisted me during my 2 cycles of egg freezing made me feel welcomed. Their support made the entire process smoother.

I appreciated that throughout my treatment Dr. Levine always talked about it in the context of helping my husband and me achieve our goal of having 2 kids...We did 3 rounds of egg retrievals. The first cycle, we got 7 eggs...The second round [he] put me on a higher dose of the medications. We got 9 eggs...[he] asked us if we wanted to transfer a single embryo or multiples. We said we preferred a single and he was fine with that.
I think this [Fertility Instiutue of NJ] clinic's biggest strength is that the people who work there really care about helping their patients. I also got the impression that some of the staff - both on the admin and medical side - have experienced infertility themselves, which I think is what makes them so good at communicating with patients...morning monitoring is only 3 days a week, and they always got me in and out in under an hour
How was your experience with Zalman Levine at Fertility Institute of New Jersey?
Overall I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Levine. IVF is a difficult journey - it's physically demanding, the uncertainty makes it emotionally challenging, and of course it's expensive. I appreciated that throughout my treatment Dr. Levine always talked about it in the context of helping my husband and me achieve our goal of having 2 kids. When we started treatment Dr. Levine said that our chances of being able to have two kids were excellent (close to 100%), that it wouldn't be easy, but that in the end we would have success - and that's exactly what happened. We did 3 rounds of egg retrievals. The first cycle, we got 7 eggs. Three of them survived to be day 5 embryos, and of those only one was chromosomally normal. The second round Dr. Levine put me on a higher dose of the medications. We got 9 eggs, 4 of them developed into day 5 embryos, but none of them were chromosomally normal. That was definitely a low point for us, but Dr. Levine recommended trying again. The third round, we got only 6 eggs, and only two become day-5 embryos. When I got this news I was ready to give up on my own eggs and look for a donor. But then we got great news that one of them was chromosomally normal! So this meant we had TWO normal, day-5 embryos, which meant we had a pretty good chance of being able to have two kids. We transferred the one embryo we got from the first cycle and I'm currently 12 weeks pregnant! Throughout my care I always felt like I was in great hands with Dr. Levine. He doesn't give more information than you need, but always answered my questions with compassion and in a way I understood.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Zalman Levine at Fertility Institute of New Jersey?
Make a mental note of any questions you have before your monitoring sessions. You will only have a few minutes with Dr. Levine and he is very efficient and moves quickly to see patients. There were days when I would leave the office and realize I had a question and I'd missed my chance to ask.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Zalman Levine at Fertility Institute of New Jersey?
I always felt like Dr. Levine genuinely cared about me and was invested in helping me become a parent. I think he gets a lot of personal satisfaction from helping couples bring new lives into the world - it's evident from the interactions I had with him throughout my treatment. He always asked how I was feeling and about my husband (who wasn't allowed to come into the office b/c of covid). When he had good news for me I could always tell it made him happy to deliver it, and when he had bad news he delivered it compassionately.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Institute of New Jersey.
I loved the nursing staff at FINJNY. I relied on Adrienne, Gwen, and Melissa so much throughout my treatment. I was always calling the office to leave messages with questions or requests and they were extremely helpful. They were extremely professional and caring at every step of the way.
Describe your experience with Fertility Institute of New Jersey.
I think this clinic's biggest strength is that the people who work there really care about helping their patients. I also got the impression that some of the staff - both on the admin and medical side - have experienced infertility themselves, which I think is what makes them so good at communicating with patients. I did a consultation at a different fertility clinic and had a different experience. I also really liked that this is all they do there. They're not part of a big hospital - they have their own lab, and this is all they do. I also appreciated that morning monitoring is only 3 days a week, and they always got me in and out in under an hour. I typically waited for about 15 minutes to see the doctor for an ultrasound and about 10 minutes for blood work, and then I was out and on my way back home. This was a big contrast to another clinic I did a consult at where they said patients would start showing up at 6am to get in line to wait, and that the wait could be an hour or longer. FINJNY really does everything they can to make this as easy as possible for patients. The only downside is that they are in demand, so they need to be really efficient seeing patients. Hence why you should always write down any questions you have in advance so you don't forget.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Zalman Levine at Fertility Institute of New Jersey.
I had insurance that covered 90% of the first two egg retrieval cycles. I think my out of pocket cost for those was about $1,200 each. For the third cycle we paid out of pocket. (If I had gone with a US-based pharmacy, it would have been about $10,000 for medications.) We ordered medications from an overseas pharmacy and it was about $5,000. The cost of the IVF cycle was about $17,000, plus $250 per embryo for genetic testing.

I just wish that the Doctor [Dr. Levine] would be more open minded with me as his patient to consider a fresh transfer, or modifying my protocol, or explaining why other protocols can't be tried. ... He is a by the book Doctor ... I felt like a failure for him constantly mentioning there were other options such as adoption, or egg donor; I came to see this Doctor to feel as if I could find someone that would be willing to fight with me in beating my odds in infertility based on my age.

How was your experience with Zalman Levine at Fertility Institute of New Jersey?
I will always be thankful that after my egg retrievals with Dr. Levine I always healed well. I just wish that the Doctor would be more open minded with me as his patient to consider a fresh transfer, or modifying my protocol, or explaining why other protocols can't be tried. Dr. Levine always said I responded well to the protocol I was on, but after my first IVF CP I wish he would of consider in my second IVF a different protocol for what I believe would be future pregnancy losses due to my medical history. I went in trusting his first protocol and advise in PGS testing due to my age because I believe in the Doctor and wanted to follow him faithfully. I initially had wanted to try Clomid, but in my consult with him he said that he wouldn't advise it because it would be frustrating for him meaning that I wouldn't be successful in conception because I believe in him and appreciated his honesty about the clomid I felt my treatment would have to be his way, but I don't understand why for the second IVF attempt he wouldn't consider as an option a fresh transfer. when I mentioned opting out of PGS testing he didn't seem supportive. When I asked after my egg retrieval how long I should wait for to attempt another protocol because my husband and I are hoping for at least two children the Doctor seemed dismissive of my question perhaps it was because I asked right after egg retrieval surgery, however he should of answered me. I believe he tries to be very positive in nature, but in my opinion after my second egg retrieval I would of wished he would of come with a bit more medical options. He is a by the book Doctor and while I realize i'm no experiment and I appreciate him for not pushing anything medical on me I felt like a failure for him constantly mentioning there were other options such as adoption, or egg donor; I should of caught on to that on my first consult with him. I came to see this Doctor to feel as if I could find someone that would be willing to fight with me in beating my odds in infertility based on my age. I think he is a wonderful Doctor,but perhaps he works best for women under 36 and younger. I leave this clinic broken hearted and not willing to go a third round because I feel Dr. Levine isn't open to any other options with me and perhaps it was my age and he knew best, but he didn't want to consider my options. I'm sure he is wonderful with other patients that could produce better results.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Zalman Levine at Fertility Institute of New Jersey?
during your consult ask what would be the protocol he would put you on based on your age? and is the same for other women your age? is he open to other methods? Is PGS testing a must if you have no known genetic diseases? is he willing to do a fresh transfer based on your age?
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Zalman Levine at Fertility Institute of New Jersey?
Dr. Zalman Levine has a constant personality of positivity, he always asked how I was doing, remembered little details such as my bday. He has a wonderful bedside manner and seems caring.
Describe the protocols Zalman Levine used in your cycles at Fertility Institute of New Jersey and their degree of success.
First IVF got as far as transfer tested one PGS Normal (good quality) embryo- Gonal-F 450, Menopur 350, Ganarelix, estradiol, pio shots second IVF only egg retrieval- Gonal-F 450, Menopu 350, ganarelix - retrieved four embryos, but according to Doctor Levine on Day 5 they were abnormal (they stopped growing).
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Institute of New Jersey.
Some were more compassionate then others, but it probably didn't help that i was overly inquisitive. Michelle one of the nurses there is kind, but I wish she would of offered me the supplements list before my first IVF not after I called and mentioned that I have a friend currently treating with the clinic. On my second IVF i asked about the prices of one of the trigger shots because at the moment I was confusing it for another shot that I had payed for before egg transfer. I kept my trigger shot for another shot that I had before egg transfer, after she pulled us to the back office I was irritated by her comparing medications to running sneakers and her example of all running sneakers are the same; no they are not, not all runners use the same sneakers especially not avid runners depending on the shape or conditions of their feet the same applies to human beings and medications. while I hope she really didn't mean to seem condescending by also saying this one medication cost $1,000 versus this other medication it would of been enough if she would of just showed us what the medication looked like (which she did after to compare them) because I needed the visual. I am for the most part self pay of course I don't want to pay more than I am already paying, and I'm sure she is great at what she does, but comparing running sneakers to medication to patient care, and if I would prefer to pay more versus the other was not called for. I think at times even nurses forget what it feels to be a patient until they are on the other end. wanting to understand what one is paying for and asking shouldn't feel like as if the clinic is robbing you I just wanted to understand.
Describe your experience with Fertility Institute of New Jersey.
They get busy. Ashley at the front desk was always awesome. Allison the NP once called me after requesting to speak to Dr. Levine to call me, but he never got my message and had left on vacation she called and answered my questions and at that moment I learned and wished that I could speak more with Allison because it was the way she explained my questions that I felt she offered more of what I probably needed. TTC is such a tough journey I guess everyone offers something different and everyone there fills in emotionally on what you as a patient feel. I'm not here to attack the clinic I personally wished it would of worked with them. The billing department in my opinon awesome never had an issue Penny is great.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Zalman Levine at Fertility Institute of New Jersey.
First IVF was expensive but included monitoring and blood work not medication, they do offer military discounts. Second IVF was the same but they were willing to work a price because it was my second. I think they try to work with you.

Dr. Levine was open to transferring two embryos. He helped us understand the pros and cons of each option...[he] spent so much time and energy in making me feel cared for and like I was his one and only patient...He called me personally with the results of each of my blood work pregnancy tests and you could hear the compassion in his voice...
I love the nursing staff at FINJ&NY. I found them easy to talk to, helpful, clear and compassionate...[monitoring appointments were] very easy. Hours were from 6-9 and I never had to wait very long!..I think this clinic is excellent. The staff is warm and friendly and very helpful. Many of the staff had their own fertility challenges, which made them very empathetic. Very happy with my interactions
How was your experience with Zalman Levine at Fertility Institute of New Jersey?
Dr. Levine was extremely caring, compassionate and patient. He called me personally with the results of each of my blood work pregnancy tests and you could hear the compassion in his voice. There was one time when I did get pregnant and then later miscarried. He knew how much pain I was in and followed up a second time just to check in! Can't recommend him enough!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Zalman Levine at Fertility Institute of New Jersey?
No specific advice - I always try to come to any doctors appointment with a list of my questions . I will say though - that sometimes I would think of a question after I left the room - and ask the nurse if I could ask him one last thing (even if he had gone on to the next room already) and they would usually work out for me to ask him something between patients
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Zalman Levine at Fertility Institute of New Jersey?
Dr. Levine spent so much time and energy in making me feel cared for and like I was his one and only patient. He asked about me, my job, my husband and when we came back for more fertility treatments after having successful pregnancy and babies with his help - he always asked about our kids. Every staff member I interacted with - treated me like a human! I knew every person by name - from the front desk ladies, to the nurses, to the woman who draws blood- I had friendly relationships with everyone there. When I returned for more fertility treatments after having my children - it was like "coming home" - everyone was so happy to see me and couldn't believe how much time had gone by since I'd last been a patient.
Describe the protocols Zalman Levine used in your cycles at Fertility Institute of New Jersey and their degree of success.
I started with letrizol and my body reacted somewhat, but not as fast as it should have. Then I tried a cycle of clomid which my body reacted poorly to. I did 2 IUIs. The first did not work. The second I got pregnant but I miscarried. I started a 3rd IUI using injectable medication this time. I overstimulated and we were able to change the cycle to become an egg retrieval instead of an IUI. I had a hx of miscarriages so I had them PGS tested. The clinic gave me the option of picking genders, but I wanted them to pick. Then I did a frozen embryo transfer and transferred two embryos and had twins!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Institute of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Michelle, Alyson Butler, Cathy)
I love the nursing staff at FINJ&NY. I found them easy to talk to, helpful, clear and compassionate. I felt heard and understood. I can't sing their praises enough. I felt like they really cared about our treatment cycle and because its a smaller practice- you really get to know the nurses and recognize their voices when they call before they even identify themselves!

It's always emotional to talk about it to anyone, and Dr. Berin understood perfectly well my situation and made me feel very comfortable, and I felt from the first visit that she really cares about her patients, and I truly felt that I'm no longer just an "item on an assembly line in some factory", and that I'll be well taken care of, and that my dream of having a family will come true. I am convinced that she's got a true healer's gift, and where all have failed with me, only because of Dr. Berin I became a Mommy this year of a beautiful baby girl!..
Their new office [at Fertility Institute of New Jersey - Westwood] is beautiful, and I felt like I was in a spa, with beautiful decor, lots of space, and even a calming music they have on in the reception area. The wait was never long, since they were always very organized...Nurses were incredible at the Fertility Institute of NJ and NY. They were always very nice, attentive, and very knowledgeable. I always had a million questions, that could drive anybody crazy, but they always listened, and answered them even if it was the tenth time I asked it...

Dr. Levine did encourage a single embryo transfer...We got the sense that I was the only patient he thinks about all day. He explained things clearly, did not raise false hopes and answered our questions with endless patience. He called in person to deliver all results and inquire about my well being on many occasions. This journey towards a positive pregnancy was truly a remarkable experience that was sweetened by his devotion and care.
The clinic [Fertility Institute of New Jersey] is organized, clean and well kept. Wait times are short usually.

Dr. Levine always asked about my family, my husband, my work, and made it a point to remember all the little details.... He was always kind and compassionate. I would go to him again and again. He was thorough and knowledgable.... The first two IUI's I used clomid, and then lectrozol because I did not react well with clomid.... The fresh embryo transfer was unsuccessful but my second frozen one was great. I was closely monitored. The first few weeks were spent ruling out genetics and other issues.
The practice [Fertility Institute of New Jersey] is beautiful. They have coffee, phone charging stations and water in the waiting room. I wish there was a place to lay my head to close my eyes but overall it is a pleasure to go. The staff at the front desk is always organized as well.... Staff is always kind, patient and compassionate.... You could go in whenever was good for you from 6am -9 am. It was smooth and efficient.

He [Dr. Levine] is very caring and makes you feel important. Came highly recommended from friends who have had successful pregnancies. He made an awkward situation with a gestational carrier much easier, which is not an easy thing to do. When we had a miscarriage he was very compassionate.... He is open to transferring 2 if need be which can be helpful to increase your odds of a successful pregnancy.... A few weeks of estrogen for my carrier and then the injectables.
Great location, very helpful accessible staff [Fertility Institute of New Jersey]. Even the people at the front desk and in billing are kind and compassionate. When you call them they try to solve the problem and will connect you with whoever they need. They are very fast when you ask them to do something. Surrogacy takes a lot of coordinating and they were very sensitive to our needs.... Very expensive because it is a gestational carrier but after our failed transfer they reduced the cost.

the 3 first treatments [with Dr. Inna Berin] i was with letrozole on CD3 for 5 days... and Timed Intercourse...the 2 IUIs i was on letrozole too...and 2 days before the iui i got Ovidrel...they monitored my ovulation to see if the medicine was working...nice and friendly... She made me feel that she cared about me, because when we did the first IUI she told me the risks and what to do if after 2 or 3 doesn't work ...that gave me hope, and i know I have a chance to have my baby...she's a good doctor, but this struggling is not easy , she know what she's doing , you just need to be patient.

Dr. Berin is the most wonderful human being I’ve ever met. She has the most beautiful bedside manner and she really cares about her patients. She’s hugged me more times than I can count and she prays for me during and after each treatment. She has waived so many fees for me and she truly has tried everything to get me pregnant.
[Fertility Institute of New Jersey is] not like a mill there like one of the other places I’ve been...the staff and doctors are wonderful. The front office staff sometimes aren’t present at times if you get there very early. They are also not there on weekends which I personally didn’t mind...[Dr. Berin] prays for me and hugs me each and every time I’ve had my transfers.

She has me on oral estrogen and injectable Progesterone. She has me on baby aspirin for MTHFR and has sent me to a hematologist. She originally sent me to a surgeon because my other doctors poorly mismanaged me and misdiagnosed me. She gave me zolidex before each cycle

The strength is that the staff and doctors are wonderful. The front office staff sometimes aren’t present at times if you get there very early. They are also not there on weekends which I personally didn’t mind because this whole process has the ability to take over your life and control it. So not having to sit in a waiting room on a Saturday isn’t the worst thing

I paid for my donor eggs and all of my zolidex shots
