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.

Communication could be better but [Dr. Davenport] is willing to answer all questions. He is very compassionate, but can be a little more hopeful than realistic, getting your hopes up with his positivity. It’s comforting, but can set you up to be let down...I have DOR and used a standard antagonist protocol for my IVF cycle. I seemed to respond well, but less than half of the number of follicles produced eggs and only one of them was quality.
Costs [at Fertility Institute of North America] seem to be in line with the average in the state of AL...Small clinic, but it’s not difficult to get appointments. Small weakness in that there is really only one nurse and she has all the knowledge and can be hard to get in touch with.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Institute of North Alabama. (Assigned nurse: Kendra)
Nursing and staff is top notch. My only complaint is there is one true Nurse and she is so busy it is hard to get in touch with her in a timely manner when something is important. She does get back to you, it just might be several hours. I wish there was a junior nurse to handle some of her workload.

Dr. Davenport has shared with us that he recommends only transferring one embryo vs. multiple because of the risks involved. He, however, said he would transfer multiple if we requested. ... Dr. Davenport is a very patient, intelligent and compassionate doctor. From the moment my husband and I met him, we both felt at ease and like he was the doctor we were supposed to see. I appreciated his concern for my health, getting to the root of the infertility issues we were experiencing and educating us on the process of IVF, why it would be our route for conceiving and assured us that he and his staff would be with us every step of the way.
The clinic is so warm and inviting and this was a big positive for me because going into a fertility clinic you want to feel at ease. Everyone from the receptionist is very friendly, professional and welcoming. You feel right at home at FINA (Fertility Institute of North Alabama). ... My nurse has been amazingly attentive and informative thus far. She has been a big help from the beginning in explaining things that were going to take place. Kendra is a great communicator and I'm looking forward to having her by our side through the IVF journey.

Don't be nervous, don't be afraid to ask whatever question comes to your mind no matter how silly it may sound.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
Dr. Davenport treated me and my husband like a human rather than a number. He was completely opposite of a previous doctor I saw. His warmth, his care and his desire to help put me at ease and assured me that I was in the right place. His first concern was my health and getting to the root of the infertility issues we were having. He walked us through all the possible outcomes, including what he expected - which was tubal damage and the need to have my tubes removed. Dr. Davenport and his staff have been supportive thus far, they have been so informative and have made our treatment thus far a lot more comfortable than expected.
Describe the protocols Brett Davenport used in your cycles at Fertility Institute of North Alabama and their degree of success.
In my treatment thus far, Dr. Davenport started with the saline ultrasound to get a good look at my uterus and what he could see of my tubes. He suspected tubal damage and possible fibriods and recommended the laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures to determine what was going on. He told me that the procedure could result in having my tubes removed as he suspected hydrosalpinx. After these procedures he spoke with me and my husband about IVF as our next route. We have not begun IVF yet, we are scheduled to begin in October.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
I do not recall the cost of the laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures as they were 100% covered by my insurance. The IVF will be roughly $18,000-22,000, including up to 3 cycles and medication. My insurance does not cover this and we are having to get a loan for the total cost.

I was given a specific time for my procedure via email but was contacted on the morning of the procedure to inform me of the correct time as the time I was given was incorrect. Luckily I made it on time and Dr. D apologized for the mix-up. This was the only conflicting information I was given.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
[Dr. Davenport] will ask how you are doing before jumping right into the exam or procedure for the day. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients and getting the results his patients want.... The first time with Dr. Davenport, we did Clomid with timed intercourse for 6 months and then moved up to Clomid, an Ovidrel shot, and an IUI. After 2 months, I was pregnant. Now we are trying for our 2nd child and unfortunately it's not going as well.
The clinic [Fertility Institute of North Alabama] is a bit small but I know he's looking for a new building. But even though it is small, the clinic is capable of most fertility options. If the equipment isn't there, the doctor has a setup in a near-by city to attend to his patients accordingly.... They are all very personable and caring. They will laugh with you if that's what you need to do or cry with you. When asked questions about the procedures and medicines, if they don't know the answer, they will find out the answer for you.
How was your experience with Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
Dr. Davenport is very knowledgeable and while he can appear to be socially shy, he has worked on that in the past few years. He will ask how you are doing before jumping right into the exam or procedure for the day. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients and getting the results his patients want.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
Meet him. Have a consultation. He will show you how knowledgeable and caring he is.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
The office and nurses know my name and ask me how I'm doing every month. They remember certain details that we previously talked about. The office environment is very personable.
Describe the protocols Brett Davenport used in your cycles at Fertility Institute of North Alabama and their degree of success.
The first time with Dr. Davenport, we did Clomid with timed intercourse for 6 months and then moved up to Clomid, an Ovidrel shot, and an IUI. After 2 months, I was pregnant. Now we are trying for our 2nd child and unfortunately it's not going as well. We have had IUIs monthly with clomid and the Ovidrel shot but no luck. I truly think it's my diet and stress levels. I need to talk with him about it.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Institute of North Alabama. (Assigned nurse: Kendra)
They are all very personable and caring. They will laugh with you if that's what you need to do or cry with you. When asked questions about the procedures and medicines, if they don't know the answer, they will find out the answer for you. Many times I have received phone calls after their office has closed for the day just so they can answer my questions.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
Because of my insurance, each visit co-pay is $40. Clomid runs from $40-$80 depending on if the pharmacy has coupons. The Ovidrel shot can run from $120-$200, again depending on coupons at the pharmacy. Each IUI costs $350, I believe.

The moment Dr. Davenport walked into that exam room, I felt a sense of hope and calmness...He really cared about my mental health during the process...When we had 2 failed IUIs, he never once tried rushing me into any other procedures. He wanted me to be mentally and emotionally ready. He was by far the most caring doctor I've been to.
[Fertility Institute of North Alabama] was very clean and very homey feeling. I always felt welcomed there by every staff member...the staff knew my husband and I by name...treated us like we were part of their team. The communication between them to us was more than outstanding...The nursing staff was just as caring as Dr. Davenport himself...Always there to motivate you to not give up.
How was your experience with Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
There I was sitting in a fertility specialist exam room waiting on Dr. Davenport; a scared and helpless 27 year old holding her husband's hand wondering why we weren't good enough to have a child of our own together. I was nervous, embarrassed, and emotionally exhausted. The moment Dr. Davenport walked into that exam room, I felt a sense of hope and calmness. Davenport introduced himself and told us a little bit about him to help us feel moe at ease before we talked to him about why we were sitting in his office. While explaining our goals and consulting about the best treatment to begin first, he never once rushed us or over talked us. He was so patient and so understanding. When we were given the news that my husband's sperm count and motility was low, we were confused and honestly.. heartbroken. He comforted us and assured us that our dream of being parents together wasn't over. He gave us hope and he gave me something to begin looking forward to. He was very thorough with explaining what our first and next step would be for treatments. When we had 2 failed IUIs, he never once tried rushing me into any other procedures. He wanted me to be mentally and emotionally ready. He was by far the most caring doctor I've been to.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
Always go in to every appointment with an open mind. Mentally and emotionally be ready for what you've dreamed of for so long, to not happen quickly overnight. It is a process that takes time. Never give up!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
Dr. Davenport was very knowledgeable, caring, and patient during our process of the IUIs. Every failed IUI that my husband and I had, his first question to me as the wife was, "Tell me how you're feeling and if you're okay." He sat with me and comforted me as I just cried and cried. He really cared about my mental health during the process. He never tried to rush us into anything that my mental health couldn't handle.
Describe the protocols Brett Davenport used in your cycles at Fertility Institute of North Alabama and their degree of success.
Our first treatment strategy was a saline ultrasound to check and make sure I had no tube blockages or cysts on my ovaries along with blood work to check all of my levels. Once it was determine that I had no issues on the ultrasound, ovulated on my own, and all bloodwork came back at the levels needed, we moved forward to a non-medicated IUI the first time. While advising my husband to take Lcarnitine vitamins to help with sperm count and motility. When the first IUI failed, he performed another ultrasound and determined that nothing with my body had changed, so we done a medicated IUI the next round with Letrozole and a trigger shot to be able to fully time my ovulation.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
The nursing staff was just as caring as Dr. Davenport himself. They were always giving you a warm welcome on what you felt like was the end of the world. Always there to motivate you to not give up.
Describe your experience with Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
The clinic had nothing but strengths. It was very clean and very homey feeling. I always felt welcomed there by every staff member. After I consultation, the staff knew my husband and I by name moving forward. They treated us like we were part of their team. The communication between them to us was more than outstanding.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
Our health insurance did not cover any fertility procedures, so everything was paid out of pocket. We paid $350 for the IUI alone. To move forward to IVF, it would costly nearly $17,000.

We had a great experience the first time around (and amazing results), and when he [Dr. Brett Davenport] moved to his own clinic, he went to bat for us to help is get custody of our embryos. He absolutely has gone above and beyond what I would have expected of him. As we're trying again, he has made sure everything will go smoothly so that we don't have any of the struggles we had to get to our last transfer.
I absolutely love his new staff [at Fertility Institute of N AL]. They're so much easier to communicate with and I really like that I know everyone in the office.... My husband has low motility, low morphology, and low count, so we went straight to ivf. He was on clomid and novarel for 6 months the first time. I had a cycle with follistim because that is what my insurance would cover. We had great success with a twin pregnancy. When we went back for an FET, I did injectibles and estrogen and progesterone. Neither of our two remaining embryos stuck. This time around, my husband isn't doing the clomid and novarel, we're just going to go ahead and do icsi. I'm going to be on the same meds as last time because it obviously worked.

He is contracting with ovation fertility in Nashville until his office is complete, but I think I prefer this office. They are right next to the hospital. Going to a small clinic for monitoring and then going to the larger one for retrievals and transfers is very appealing to me.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
My insurance covers meds, testing, and monitoring. Our cycle plan (3 retrievals and 3 transfers) will be about 17k.
Describe Brett Davenport's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
He was willing to go ahead and transfer two embryos because we wanted to. He said if we chose to do pgs this time around, he would not transfer two.

Dr. Davenport cares deeply about his patients. I always felt like I was his only patient. I underwent two surgeries during my treatment and each time he prayed before surgery and personally called the day after each one to check on me. He felt our disappointment each time we weren’t pregnant and was overjoyed when we finally got pregnant... It was bittersweet being released from his care when I was 9 week pregnant. I felt he truly cared about me and always took the time to explain each step of the process in a way that my husband and I could understand. He even personally called when lab results were late and after surgery. Dr. Davenport made our infertility journey more bareable.
Dr. Davenport opened his clinic about a year ago. They are working on getting the kinks out of a new practice but overall, the practice and its employees are phenomenal. It was easy to get early appointments (7 AM) and they even came in on a Saturday morning for an IUI...The nursing staff was invested in my journey. I felt liked they truly cared and were always available to answer questions.

My time going to Dr. Davenport resulted in nothing other than lots of bills...He was very pushy with wanting us to do IUI despite the fact that I was getting pregnant on my own, I just was not able to carry the babies. I wanted more diagnostics to be completed to figure out why I was miscarrying...They pushed for us to do IUIs every month and when I suggested the medication and timed intercourse he said we were wasting our time. They did not do any additional lab or diagnostic tests besides the usual fertility labs of hormone levels.
[Fertility Institute of North Alabama] seem to be more concerned with receiving payments for IUIs than determining what could be causing the infertility problems.

He [Dr. Davenport] is a busy doctor I get that, I Just wish he would've gotten to know me better and actually reviewed my chart a little better during consultation before getting to the middle of my time with him which is 3mo later and moving my IVF date for late decovered issues that could've been founded before now...Alot of confusion and miscommunication...
Communication [at Fertility Institute of North Alabama] is a huge weakness especially during this tough time in my life, they expect you to have patience and compassion for there time but not the same in return. Alot of confusion and miscommunication happens here often...Don't think I've meet her [nurse] in person just via email and over the phone...They sent a pricing sheet for self pay...

He [Dr. Brett Davenport] and his team are kind and compassionate. They spend time with you and you don’t feel rushed. They seem to truly care about you during this trying time. We are still in the process and they have helped us change course and weigh our options. I feel informed, and supported...busy and only do IVF every other month. So you have to get in on the right schedule or wait two months to do IVF... kind and explain everything
