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.

I felt as if I was just another patient for him, [Dr. Winslow] was unfamiliar with my treatment. He didn't take the time to get to know my husband and I...He wasn't very familiar with my situation and it was obvious. I felt rushed during consultations and ultrasounds. I felt like I was bothering him when asking questions...
$5K and change for first cycle and $1K and change for second, due to deductible being met. Paid $1K and change for the transfer...Nursing is hit or miss...The nurses never emailed me and the communication is so dated. I had to take my own notes and their minimal documents they give you are vague and generic...Billing is horrible. They don't answer calls or return calls. Asking them for your invoice or some sort of document to show a breakdown of what you're paying for is like asking them to provide their financials
How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
I felt as if I was just another patient for him, he was unfamiliar with my treatment. He didn't take the time to get to know my husband and I, unlike the other doctors we had. While reviewing genetic results, he misread them and I had to keep explaining that I was already provided results for one test that he said weren't available. They were on the next page of the report I realized once I left my rushed 15 minute consultation. The worst part is he showed me the documents with the gender of the embryos which I did not want to see.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
If you're looking for someone who doesn't rush you and throughly explains things, I would not recommend.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
He wasn't very familiar with my situation and it was obvious. I felt rushed during consultations and ultrasounds. I felt like I was bothering him when asking questions.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
Nursing is hit or miss. I had to do A LOT of following up, unnecessary. For example, they forgot to rebiospy embryos to be sent out. I had to continuously follow up. They definitely added a lot of extra stress to the process. The communication was sparse and they didn't make themselves very approachable. About 80% of the time I'd call I'd have to leave a voicemail and I would maybe get a call back that day. Patty and Pam were the only ones who were on top of things. The nurses never emailed me and the communication is so dated. I had to take my own notes and their minimal documents they give you are vague and generic.
Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
Billing is horrible. They don't answer calls or return calls. Asking them for your invoice or some sort of document to show a breakdown of what you're paying for is like asking them to provide their financials. They also never told me I had a credit, a nurse told me and when I asked to apply it towards my second IVF cycle they said they were holding it in case I had a balance. I had to fight them to left me apply my credit to the next cycle, and I never had a balance afterwards. They documents they do send you in regards to what you've paid make no sense to the average consumer and don't capture what services you paid for.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
$5K and change for first cycle and $1K and change for second, due to deductible being met. Paid $1K and change for the transfer.
What specific things went wrong at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to order appropriate test
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I've had to call to remind them to call in my prescriptions. I also had to call back to find out when my IVF cycle was starting. I spoke to someone on Saturday morning around 9am, was supposed to hear back within the hour and finally called back at 3pm before they closed to hear 'the nurse was supposed to call you, I'm sorry'. They also screwed up my husband's test, they wrote our insurance down wrong for him and charged him as an uninsured patient because they had the wrong number, rather than calling us to get the correct number.

Dr. Winslow is caring, however, he is very blunt and straight to the point. He does not sugar coat anything, and he is there to do his job and get you pregnant. He has been in the industry for several years and is very knowledgeable...He is gentle but to the point and knows how to get things done. He has a lot of patients but he always seems to remember me and cares for me when I am in his care. He has never been rude or dismissive.
The clinic [Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] is very busy, however, they seem to be on top of things. I haven’t had a bad experience. Wait times are long but that’s because they’re busy and they only have 3 doctors. The billing department could use some help with organization...My full cycle with medicine was around $18,000. Each transfer is close to $3,300 excluding medicines.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
To understand that if you want someone to hold your hand and sugarcoat your journey, then he is not the doctor for you. But if you want to get pregnant and understand why you’re having to go through this, then he is the one!

Describe the protocols Kevin Winslow used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I was placed on a normal agonist protocol from my previous doctor. Once she moved, I chose to be with Winslow. I did not have my egg retrieval with him but he has done all of my transfers. When my first transfer ended in a miscarriage, I was placed on the same protocol but the next one didn’t end up working. I am now doing testing to determine if there’s any issues with receptivity or immune issues. Once I have results from that, then Dr Winslow will adjust my protocol as needed.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The nursing staff has been great. They always call me back in a timely manner and answers all of my questions. The busier the clinic gets, the harder it is for them to remember their patients but they do a really good job of keeping everything organized.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
They have mistakenly forgot to put me on the schedule for an appointment, so thankfully I called and got it fixed. They have also sent me in a room to get ready for an exam but I only needed to do blood work that day. I was unaware of that.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
I really appreciate how caring and nice Dr. Erb is. She was able to help us establish a plan and gave us hope. We struggle with male infertility and she was very reassuring through the not so great test results that we still had options to try...makes me feel like she truly cares. She listens to my concerns and answers any questions we have throughly while giving in depth explanations to results, procedures, and options for next steps.
I think right now they [FIRM-Jacksonville] are short staffed, so scheduling an appointment is very challenging...Besides the frustrations with scheduling and long wait times, once you get in and actually see the doctor its a pleasant experience...the nurse said she would ask Dr. Erb and call me back. She called me within the hour with more details and I really appreciated that.
How was your experience with Teresa Erb at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
I really appreciate how caring and nice Dr. Erb is. She was able to help us establish a plan and gave us hope. We struggle with male infertility and she was very reassuring through the not so great test results that we still had options to try. After almost a year on medications my husbands sperm have improved from 0 to a normal range but are abnormal in shape. She was very kind in explaining exactly what that meant and told us our possible next steps; we scheduled an HSG procedure for Monday then will start IUI. I appreciate how thorough she is with directions and information. Her calm demeanor helps me feel at ease during an otherwise stressful time.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Teresa Erb at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
If you have questions write them down because she will definitely answer them all for you.

Describe the protocols Teresa Erb used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
To help treat my husbands lack of sperm, he had to do Pregnyl injections every other day and his testosterone levels were monitored by an Endocrinologist we were referred to by Dr. Erb. She also prescribed me Vitamin d3 after our initial visit when my bloodwork showed my levels were low. We are now on a vitamin regime she recommended as we prep for IUI after my HSG procedure.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Patty)
I've talked to a couple of nurses, Patty and Lisa are the 2 names I remember. They were very friendly. I had a question about a result, the nurse said she would ask Dr. Erb and call me back. She called me within the hour with more details and I really appreciated that.
Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I think right now they are short staffed, so scheduling an appointment is very challenging. The book over a month out and seem to reschedule appointments last minute which is very frustrating when you wait weeks or months for an appointment. Besides the frustrations with scheduling and long wait times, once you get in and actually see the doctor its a pleasant experience.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Teresa Erb at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
We've had a copay for our check up visits but have paid 85$ for semen analysis and will be paying 95$ for the HSG procedure (copay plus a 60$ fee the hospital is charging). The Pregnyl medication was extremely costly at almost 500$ a month which we used for close to a year.

[Dr. Winslow] was great at getting in and out and not making you wait around but I wish there would have been more explanations to certain procedures or follicle scans...Letrozole three tablets and I grew at least three eggs each cycle but I just don’t find they fully matured before we triggered ovulation. We had to use hcg to trigger my ovulation...He was quick to recommend ivf but after our history it made sense
My [FIRM] nurse is amazing always eases the anxiety is like my best friend and support going in there...They’re quick to jump to ivf but that’s because they’ve had so many amazing outcomes with it. They treat you like family and really do care about you. They’re always reassuring and cautious on sensitive subjects but blunt when need be. They helped me through my miscarriage and d and c and i was relieved to have them there.
How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
He was quick to recommend ivf but after our history it made sense. However it is a struggle being in the military with no other source of money and tricare doesn’t cover anything for ivf. I wish and pray we could because we’ve been told by several doctors were amazing candidates for it and doctor Winslow helped ease our minds about it. He did let us continue a couple more cycles of letrozole before moving on but we’re in a waiting period now.

Dr. Erb is extremely thorough and descriptive about the entire process- something that 100% made me feel comfortable and at ease about the biggest undertaking of our lives... She was always patient with us and answered all of our questions- we never felt rushed. She explained every medication, every procedure- and all the reasons why- that really helped to satisfy and put at ease my Type A mind...
I felt like I got truly individualized and personal care at the Daytona location [Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine]...it was a smaller and more intimate setting. From Elana that answers the phone and greets you, Jenny that helps with billing, Crystal that checked my vitals and drew blood, our nurse coordinator Susan, and of course Dr. Erb- we feel like family there. Everyone is on a first name basis- they all know you- ask about your life- and honestly and genuinely want this journey to be successful.

Trust her.The news isn’t always going to be what you want to hear but I absolutely believe that she 100% wants what you want- and she knows how to get it for you. I have a beautiful baby boy, and another one kicking away inside me because of her and I will be forever grateful.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Teresa Erb at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Erb is extremely thorough and descriptive about the entire process- something that 100% made me feel comfortable and at ease about the biggest undertaking of our lives. She took the time and taught us why we needed to do what we were doing from a medical standpoint, she coached us through every procedure and set back, and she has cheered us along as we now have had two (for two) successful transfers- our beautiful baby boy and another one the way. I have always felt like she GENUINELY wants what we want - healthy babies- and even though it hasn’t always been easy- she has been a true hand-in hand partner along the way.
Describe the protocols Teresa Erb used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I don’t remember the names of the protocols- but because of my chromosomal abnormality the goal was to retrieve the most amount of eggs so that the odds of having some good eggs was better. I’m also a large person- 5’9” and 200lbs so I was on the max doses of endometrin and o Other meds I took. Round one- 16 eggs retrieved, 7 made it to day 5, 2 tested as normal - currently pregnant with one, the other is still on ice. Round two- 13 eggs retrieved, 6 made it to day 2 5, 1 tested as normal- my beautiful, perfect, amazing little boy ❤️
Describe your experience with your nurse at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Susan)
Everyone is fabulous! We were primarily seen at the Daytona office which I loved because it was a smaller and more intimate setting. From Elana that answers the phone and greets you, Jenny that helps with billing, Crystal that checked my vitals and drew blood, our nurse coordinator Susan, and of course Dr. Erb- we feel like family there. Everyone is on a first name basis- they all know you- ask about your life- and honestly and genuinely want this journey to be successful.
Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I felt like I got truly individualized and personal care at the Daytona location. I enjoy going to that office- even given the stress of this IVF process I always feel a huge sense of support when I’m there- like everyone is cheering you on because they KNOW me. My ONLY, even slightly negative experience was when we had to go to the larger ‘corporate’-feeling Jacksonville office. It wasn’t even negative- it’s just that I never got that warm huggy feeling like I do at the smaller office. The lady at check in doesn’t know my name or ask what my two year dressed as for Halloween. The woman checking my vitals doesn’t watch the same drama as me and chat me up about last weeks plot twist. I still saw Dr. Erb and and felt at ease- but I think the whole ‘vibe’ of the Daytona office really spoiled me.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Teresa Erb at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I think each retrieval was around $12,000- plus the cost of medications. Each FET was $3000 plus the cost of medications Embryo storage was $400 after the finest two years. The medications will get you. During our first retrieval nothing was covered by insurance, for the second retrieval some was. I was on the highest doses because of the size and wanting to get the most eggs possible. During our first FET a study had been released - something about the progesterone shots being very effective- so we added that to the protocol. At our second FET consult we discussed the studies about the progesterone injection effectiveness and ultimately decided with De. Erbs guidance to exclusively do the shots - and it was a huge $$$ savings. And it worked 👍🏻
Describe Teresa Erb's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The risks of multiple births were explained to us. As ‘fun’ and ‘exciting’ as twins sound- we wanted the best possible outcome for an uncomplicated pregnancy and a healthy baby. That being said- we implanted one and conceived mo/di twins. At 12 weeks we saw MFM and learned that one of our twins didn’t have a heartbeat. Dr Erb got the report and called me- even after I was no longer under her care. She made sure I understood the prognosis from the other doctor (which was favorable for the surviving twin). That moment really stuck with me. The second embryo we implanted already had two inner cellar masses at the time of freezing. While we were hoping for the best- Dr. Erb still referred us to a geneticist before the transfer just so that we were prepared for all the possible outcomes. Given our over-achieving embryos’ desire to divide we’re thankful that we did not implant two.

From day one Dr. Winslow treated us like we were important...Dr. Winslow makes sure to give you the best and worst case scenario in whatever situation you may be in. He makes sure you understand any risks that there may be but he doesn’t do it in a negative way. He says it with respect and from a medical professionals point of view because he cares about his patients and wants the best for them...
ALL of the nursing staff [at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] was absolutely amazing...Anytime I had a random question or concern, I could call and was able to speak with someone right then. Every phone call was answered with happy, cheerful voices who were ready to help...We were treated like family the entire time we were there...They make sure you know you’re not alone through any of it...
How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
From day one Dr. Winslow treated us like we were important. I was using another doctors office before being referred and when it was found I would need to see a fertility doctor, the office I was using was very rude and nonchalant about my diagnosis. It was a horrible experience. After meeting with Dr. Winslow and his team I knew without a doubt in this world we were in the right place. I literally can not say one bad thing or “weakness” about anyone at the FIRM.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Ask questions but be ready for the answers. It may not be what you want to hear but Dr. Winslow makes sure to give you the best and worst case scenario in whatever situation you may be in. He makes sure you understand any risks that there may be but he doesn’t do it in a negative way. He says it with respect and from a medical professionals point of view because he cares about his patients and wants the best for them.

Everytime Dr. Winslow walked into the room, he greeted us like he had known us for years. He always wished the best for us and always gave us the most honest truths about every situation. He took time to explain things to us that we were clueless about.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Linda Fricke )
ALL of the nursing staff was absolutely amazing. They cried with us when things didn’t go right and shared excitement with us when things did go right. They instantly became family to us. They never failed us in any way what so ever. I literally cried when we officially “graduated” from the clinic. 3 specific individuals that really touched our hearts was both Linda’s and Leah in the Tallahassee office. Anytime I had a random question or concern, I could call and was able to speak with someone right then. Every phone call was answered with happy, cheerful voices who were ready to help. That was something we were not used to with our previous doctor. We were treated like family the entire time we were there. Everyone at the FIRM was made for that job. Going through infertility can be mentally, emotionally and physically painful and the FIRM has literal angels working for them. They may not know what every individual goes through but you would never know that. They are great and couldn’t be any better. I could write a whole book on them. Lol

I literally have NO complaints. The FIRM is an amazing place for anyone struggling to get pregnant or needing anything fertility related. They work with you any way they can. They make sure you know you’re not alone through any of it.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
We honestly lost count of how much we ended up spending. It was definitely a lot of money but compared to other clinics, it was reasonably priced and they were always willing to work with us on making payments when things got a little pricey.

Dr Duffy was very kind and took his time with us each time. I never felt rushed with him and he would answer any questions we had each time. 3 times I got low blood pressure during procedures and he was very caring and took care of me and didn’t rush or get upset that it took longer...He always took his time and talked and explained things. I did not feel rushed with him or like we were just a number.
We overall had a good experience with the FIRM...I wish Duffy was still with the clinic we would use him again. The only other issue we had was sometimes we had to wait a while at an appt they would be running behind but I understand it happens and in this practice sometimes things go unexpected...Few issues with nurses and billing. Nothing major with issues.

After reviewing our test results, Dr. Winslow was proactive in planning our treatments but he didn’t want us to spend too much money without having to. Due to our unexplained infertility, he was compassionate and hopeful. He started with one round of oral medicines and timed intercourse. Later, we did 3 IUI procedures with oral medications and injections. After failed attempts, we moved onto IVF. Dr. Winslow retrieved 15 eggs, and only 2 made it to the day 5 blastocyst stage. According to the genetic testing results, one was abnormal and one was considered “no result”. We transferred the no result embryo only a couple days before the corona virus shut down the fertility world. We found out last week the embryo implanted!! We’re beyond excited and thankful for Dr. Winslow! My HCG numbers have been great this past week and we hope they continue to increase!

Dr. Duffy is a brilliant fertility doctor. He stays up to date with the current research and applies it to his treatment. He was often rushed with appointments and late, but would take the time to stay and answer all my questions...He was mostly receptive to any additional testing I wanted, even if he didn’t completely recommend it...For egg stimulation, we used menopur, gonal F and cetrotide
[Florida Institute fore Reproductive Medicine] Strengths include the doctors who work there and their expertise. Weaknesses include the lack of communication at times between the doctors and nurses and the patients. Wait times for appointments could sometimes be really long, making it hard to estimate how much time would be needed to miss work.
How was your experience with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Duffy is a brilliant fertility doctor. He stays up to date with the current research and applies it to his treatment. He was often rushed with appointments and late, but would take the time to stay and answer all my questions. He sometimes forgot the plan we discussed previously, so I would find myself having to remind him of things we previously discussed more than once. He was mostly receptive to any additional testing I wanted, even if he didn’t completely recommend it.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Be prepared for your appointments to take a long time since he is often late. Be prepared for him to talk fast and seem rushed, but jump in and ask all your questions and he will take the time to answer them. Do your research and advocate for yourself and you’ll have a great working relationship.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Duffy would sometimes forget details about my case or things we had discussed previously. I found myself sometimes having to remind him of “the plan” we had discussed. This may be attributed to the large number of patients he sees.
Describe the protocols Daniel Duffy used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
For egg stimulation, we used menopur, gonal F and cetrotide. Due to my lower AMH levels, we only retrieved 9 eggs, 3 of which made it to day 5 blast and only 1 was pgs normal. Before transfer, I did a ERA cycle with the receptiva dx biopsy with a protocol of estrogen, endometrin suppositories, and progesterone in oil.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The nursing staff sometimes seemed stressed and therefore could be short with patients. I sometimes felt like a burden whenever I called in with questions. Nursing didn’t always seem on top of communication. I never got a call with my pgs results after waiting more than 3 weeks. I also never got a return call about questions I had for the doctor the nurse was supposed to ask.

We were lucky enough to have fertility benefits through our insurance, but I was surprised by the amount of tests and procedures not covered by insurance. We ended up spending tens of thousands of dollars on medications and testing, equal the the same amount that people pay for IVF out of pocket.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I waited over 3 weeks for my pgs results on my embryos and no one ever called me. Finally I called the clinic for my results and it turned out they had them for a while but just never called. I also had questions for the doctor related to additional testing before our embryo transfer. The nurse said she would speak to my doctor and get back with me, but she never did. I had to wait until my next appointment to speak with the doctor directly.

Dr. Sproul von Goeben was invaluable to us as we went through donor egg IVF. Her understanding and knowledgeability about my diagnosis, the medications and protocol she placed me on, and her referral to an endocrinologist to help manage my thyroid issues...For the transfer cycle, I was told the clinic’s typical protocol is Estradiol pills (Estrogen support), Endometrin vaginal suppositories, and injectable progesterone in oil ...
We paid over $30,000 to the clinic as part of the guarantee cycle (plus office visits + ultrasounds)...The FIRM has several clinics in the area. This is one of the reasons I chose them. They had clinics near where I worked and also where my husband worked. So he was able to do his semen analysis and things like that at the clinic near his work, and I did ultrasounds and appointments at the clinic closest to my work. The staff at all three clinics we wound up going to were friendly and helpful.
How was your experience with Kari Sproul von Goeben at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Sproul von Goeben was invaluable to us as we went through donor egg IVF. Her understanding and knowledgeability about my diagnosis, the medications and protocol she placed me on, and her referral to an endocrinologist to help manage my thyroid issues, I believe, is the reason for our successful transfer!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kari Sproul von Goeben at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
I would highly recommend Dr. Sproul von Goeben. She (and the staff at FIRM) are very helpful and responsive. When we try for a second child in another year or two, there is no doubt that we will return to see Dr. Sproul von Goeben!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kari Sproul von Goeben at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Sproul von Goeben is very warm and friendly, while still maintaining professionalism and is honest and thorough when discussing diagnosis and treatment options.
Describe the protocols Kari Sproul von Goeben used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
For the transfer cycle, I was told the clinic’s typical protocol is Estradiol pills (Estrogen support), Endometrin vaginal suppositories, and injectable progesterone in oil (Progesterone support). I started estradiol pills 4 days after stopping birth control pills and then the Endometrin and injectable progesterone in oil the day our eggs were thawed & fertilized. So just those 3 medications unless Dr. Von Goeben specifically states otherwise. 1. Last birth control pill on ____ (date) 2. Start Estradiol 1mg taking 3 pills twice a day Four days later 3. Cryo Monitoring appointment was about 12 days after I started Estradiol. 4. Thawed and fertilized eggs the next day. And started progesterone support 5. Our transfer was 5 days later! Of our 6 frozen eggs, all six made the thaw, 5 fertilized, and 3 made it to day 5 blastocysts.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Amy Graham)
Strengths were that she was great and timely with communication. Amy is the Donor Nurse Coordinator and she is very good at what she does! My only complaint was that as we were deciding which cycle plan was right for us, there were criteria we had to hit that was not told to us up front. So I would feel like we were good to move forward, and then was told we needed to do something else/make sure we hit certain criteria to qualify for one of the programs. I understand the need for this, I just wish those things had been told to us upfront.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Kari Sproul von Goeben at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
This clinic was very upfront about fees for cycles. Also recommended a pharmacy with decent prices for fertility medication. We paid over $30,000 to the clinic as part of the guarantee cycle (plus office visits + ultrasounds)
Describe Kari Sproul von Goeben's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
For us, Dr. Sproul von Goeben recommended single embryo transfer. She explained how getting two babies for one cycle can seem like a good idea, but oftentimes pregnancy with multiples can come with extra risks for mother & babies, and that twins can be delivered early and need time in the NICU, etc. I was comfortable with the decision. I had a failed embryo transfer with another doctor years ago (fresh cycle) and transferred 2 embryos, and neither implanted. I won’t dive into issues with the other doctor/clinic here. I will just reiterate that Dr. Sproul von Goeben and the FIRM have my full trust in taking care of my health and helping us to achieve a healthy pregnancy.

Describe the protocols Daniel Duffy used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Dr. Duffy believes I was misdiagnosed with PCOS by my previous doctor after going over my test results. Being that my AMH levels are very high, he said I had time so he suggested to do 1 or 2 cycles of IUI’s before going down the IVF route. The day of the IUI, he examined my husband’s sperm and it came back very low. Which was a surprised because my husband has had 2 sperm analysts that not came back normal in the past. He suggested we move forward with the IUI because even though count was extremely low(200k), a small chance of pregnancy is better than no chance at all. We moved forward and Dr. Duffy scheduled another semen analysis for my husband the following week. Those results came in higher but are still a little low(10million). Dr. Duffy requested blood tests on my husband to see if their are any other issues and we are waiting on those. Meanwhile the IUI was unsuccessful but we are moving forward with a second round of IUI because we don’t want to waste a cycle. By the time, of my cycle day 12 ovulation ultrasound, my husband’s test results will come back and we’ll know if he has any hormonal issues that’s causing his low sperm count. If on the day of our IUI, the sperm count comes in extremely low again, Dr. Duffy will go over our options then.

We struggled at our OBGYN to find a diagnosis for our infertility for about a year. Dr. Winslow found it in the first month. My husband actually has low sperm morphology...[he] suggested three to four rounds of medicated (Letrozole) IUI...[he] is a very blunt person. I know many couples can be sensitive when it comes to fertility treatments. This type of personality may not work for all couples
We use the Tallahassee office [of Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] because it is closest to us. It is easy to get to, has its own parking lot, and is small (which we like). The waiting room and the exam rooms are very nice and clean, but still cozy and welcoming. The receptionist is awesome! She is kind, organized, and thorough. She has filled out several grant requests for us and did it quickly and efficiently
How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Winslow is a very blunt person. I know many couples can be sensitive when it comes to fertility treatments. This type of personality may not work for all couples. However, my husband and I appreciate his bluntness. He is not going to sugarcoat anything for you, which I think is important so you don't develop false hope. He will answer any and all questions you may have as simply and to-the-point as he can.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Don't be afraid to ask questions. He may not give you a ton of information outright. I think he does this so not to overwhelm you. However, he will answer any question you throw at him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
The office I go to for my appointments is very small. I have never waited more than ten or so minutes to be seen. While in our appointments, my husband and I tend to ask many questions. We have never felt rushed or like we were bothering Dr. Winslow. He was always happy to answer any questions we had. He also takes the time to explain things to you in simple terms if you ask.
Describe the protocols Kevin Winslow used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We struggled at our OBGYN to find a diagnosis for our infertility for about a year. Dr. Winslow found it in the first month. My husband actually has low sperm morphology. Therefore, Dr. Winslow suggested three to four rounds of medicated (Letrozole) IUI. In our first round, I produced one egg, but the IUI was unsuccessful. Therefore, Dr. Winslow increased the dosage of the Letrozole. I'm in the midst of my second IUI cycle, but have produced two eggs this time. In both rounds, I received a trigger shot as well.

We use the Tallahassee office because it is closest to us. It is easy to get to, has its own parking lot, and is small (which we like). The waiting room and the exam rooms are very nice and clean, but still cozy and welcoming. The receptionist is awesome! She is kind, organized, and thorough. She has filled out several grant requests for us and did it quickly and efficiently. We love the staff at this office! The only downfall to the office is that it's so small, you can hear everything in the office.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
For a medicated IUI with a trigger shot, I believe the cost was close to $1,000. However, we were offered 20% off on our first round of IUI because it was canceled due to COVID-19. We received an IVF estimate from the clinic. They estimated $13,000 to the facility and high-balled the medicine estimate to be $5,000.

We had a great experience with Dr. Winslow. Both my husband and I trusted him and felt that he took the right amount of time with us as patients. He never brushed us off, he took our questions & concerns seriously and he was very kind. I always felt that he truly cared for me as a patient...Through the process, I always felt that he was giving us the very best advice
This clinic is amazing at making you feel at ease. The nurses and staff are fun, kind and compassionate—everything they should be. But more importantly, the doctors are all at the top of their game. I felt like this clinic was committed to giving me the very best care. If you're at the FIRM, it's because you want a baby...Entire process for first round of embryo creation, freezing and transfer, about $18k total...I always felt that this was the team that would get us there.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
If your meeting with him is only a few minutes long or the clinic takes a couple days to get back to you, don't take it personally. Dr. Winslow is at the top of his game and while they have A LOT of patients—he truly cares for you as an individual. I have several friends who have successfully had babies after severe infertility issues. He is absolutely the best. You may only get a few minutes, but Dr. Winslow cares.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Winslow was amazing! He treated us with warmth and compassion. Infertility is full of uncertainties. There aren't any guarantees. Through the process, I always felt that he was giving us the very best advice—he is definitely an expert in his field. My old OBGYN used to minimize my concerns, brush me off and tell me to relax. In four years of seeing her, she never recommended the proper diagnostic treatments. Dr. Winslow was the polar opposite. While appointments aren't lengthy, I felt like our time with him was valuable. He listened, answered questions, took us seriously and got right to the bottom of our issues fast. I trusted that his plan was the right one for us.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: April)
April was our primary IVF nurse at the Tallahassee office. She was always positive and a joy to be around. She took the time to explain everything to us clearly, but she also treated us like humans. The whole staff at the FIRM is truly awesome—they're encouraging and compassionate. If there's any issue or oversight, they are quick to correct it and get you what you need. 100% dependable.

Dr. Duffy has been so kind and explains every step along the way. During my procedure I felt no pain and he was very attentive...I drive 1 hr for weekly appointments with no insurance coverage for fertility but because the reputation of this practice is worth the commute.
I’m very happy with my experience at the Firm [Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine]!...Sometimes you have to wait in the exam room for a little while but it’s worth the wait, when it’s your turn you are the sole focus...I highly recommend this practice
How was your experience with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
I was told my friends how uncomfortable/painful the HSG would be but when Dr. Duffy did the procedure he was very attentive on how I was feeling and what I was experiencing, the catheter placement was completely painless & he talked to though every step, he showed me the images and made sure I had no pain the entire time. During our weekly ultrasounds he is very attentive and communicates everything he sees and all his concerns and any potential risks that may arise in my treatment plan. I feel very comfortable asking questions and I know I will get an answer I understand. His bedside manner is superb! I’m very happy with my experience at the Firm!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Don’t wait schedule your appointment but save, it’s expensive. I did not realize how often I would be in the office and I love it because I feel like every week I get to be updated and informed on the process but those weekly visits add up and it gets expensive quick. But the experience is worth it! I have only positive experiences so far! We waited 2 months to make our first appointment because we were nervous and didn’t know what to expect, I regret waiting! This has been great so far!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Duffy has been so kind and explains every step along the way. During my procedure I felt no pain and he was very attentive. I am in the beginning part of my journey we started 4 months ago and it took 3 rounds of clomid to get me to respond, unfortunately we haven’t been pregnant yet but it takes time. I am on day 3 of my next cycle which will result in IUI. Dr. Duffy has been light hearted, he makes me very comfortable, and has a very positive outlook and he is confident I will be successful. It feels great knowing he is hoping for success just as much as my own family. I work in the hospital he operates out of, ironically I do ultrasounds for a living, I have coworkers who have been in the OR with him & shared how sweet he was to other patients as well. Knowing his reputation on a staff member level and a patient level is all the more comforting & he was highly recommended by my peers! I feel lucky to be a patient of the FIRM, I drive 1 hr for weekly appointments with no insurance coverage for fertility but because the reputation of this practice is worth the commute. Anyone in the Jacksonville area needing a fertility specialist I recommend Dr. Duffy at the firm! He spends time talking to you every week on what is going on with your cycle and what is the next step. He is happy to answer questions and never makes you feel like he has to rush to other patients or things to attend to, when he is in your room you are the only patient.
Describe the protocols Daniel Duffy used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I had bloodwork which included hormone levels, metabolic panels, vitamin levels, standard genetic testing and specific genetic testing because I was born with a birth defect, . My husband had a semen analysis and genetic testing/labs. I had an HSG. My labs showed I am not a carrier for any major genetic abnormalities, my vitamin D level was very low & confirmed I do have PCOS. My HSG showed my tubs were open and not blocked. My husband’s labs came back normal and so did his semen analysis. My weekly ultrasounds showed my follicles we’re not matured until about the 3/4th round of clomid then I had two mature follicles and was given a trigger shot to ovulate. Unfortunately timed intercourse was unsuccessful.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
There is limited nursing staff because the physicians are very hands on! The staff checks you in and out and checks vitals, they also chaperone any procedure, everyone in the office is professional, positive and kind!
Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
Sometimes you have to wait in the exam room for a little while but it’s worth the wait, when it’s your turn you are the sole focus! Everyone is so kind and informative l, I highly recommend this practice, we have been to 3 different locations and all other then have been great!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
It’s expensive but realistic, all their prices are available on their website. An ultrasound costs $125, that’s fairly cheap, the same ultrasound in a outpatient setting is around $1000+. The worst part is that many health insurances do not cover infertility, like my insurance. Unfortunately it’s all out of pocket expenses.
Describe Daniel Duffy's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I have many tiny follicles and Dr. Duffy is concerned about high order multiples, he would like me to consider IVF so he can control the amount of embryos. He shared that I can choose one embryo transfer or two. Anything else is unethical and not worth the risk of high order multiples.

[Dr. von Goeben] made sure both me and my husband understood everything and would always answer all our questions. She gave us facts and statistics, and allowed us to make our own informed decisions. I was able to advocate for myself if there was something I disagreed with, and always felt in charge and in the know with my treatment and protocols...Doctor VonGoben is an advocate for single embryo transfers. During our first transfer, we elected to put both our embryos in...For our second and third transfer, we went with a single embryo like she recommended...
All the [FIRM] nurses, no matter what location I went to were always so kind and helpful...The only issue I had with this clinic was the billing department. We got upfront cost ahead of time and paid the bills before services were rendered and I feel that was wrong. They also switched billing in the middle of our cycles and there were lots of discrepancies and errors we are still trying to deal with.

I was able to advocate for myself if there was something I disagreed with, and always felt in charge and in the know with my treatment and protocols. We started with an IUI and moved to IVF.

Doctor VG was always so kind and friendly at all our appointments. She remembered details about my life and family and always made me feel safe.
Describe the protocols Kari Sproul von Goeben used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We started in 2017 with all the fertility diagnostic testing. We then had a Clomid cycle and IUI which did not result in a pregnancy. We decided to wait a while before going back and moving forward with IVF. In 2018, we had our first egg retrieval and created 6 embryos, after PGS testing we had 2 normal embryos. We transferred both, and did not get pregnant. We immediately did another egg retrieval but added the drug Omnitrope to our protocol, this resulted in 11 embryos. After PGS testing, we had 3 healthy embryos, and 1 that needs retesting. We did a frozen embryo transfer in March of 2019 that gave us our daughter. We did another frozen embryo transfer in January of 2021 and are currently pregnant with our son.

My husband and I are under the umbrella of unexplained infertility. Before going to Dr. Von Goeben we tried clomid twice through our GYNO and had an HSG test, all we clear. Unfortunately, the clomid didn’t work after over a year and half of trying a little help with clomid we decided to see a fertility specialist. First steps was bloodwork to check health and egg reserve which is normal. Next times was IUI we have that that four times with not success. Here we are 2.5 years later still trying to start a family. It’s very frustrating when my husband and I are health.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
We came to Dr. Duffy after 3 attempts at another clinic. We had already been through 4 untested embryos, resulting in a chemical and a missed miscarriage. Dr. Duffy recommended PGS screening and the ERA for us immediately. We ended up miscarrying at 8 weeks with our one normal embryo from that cycle and although we are sad, we also are moving forward because Dr. Duffy has gotten us further than any other doctor.
It’s great how this clinic [FL Institute for Reproductive Med-Jacksonville] allows you to have a primary doctor. It is comforting to 9 times out of 10 always see the same doctor and build a patient/doctor relationship with them. It really helps heighten your level of comfort in such uncomfortable times.... All of the nurses and medical assistants have been so helpful. One in particular has made herself readily available via text or phone for us through this entire process which has helped with all of our numerous questions at all times of the day. They really want you to succeed as much as you want to.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Von Goeben (having gone through infertity treatments herself), is very warm and welcoming. She is compassionate, in one of the hardest industries. She has been very patient and thorough with my husband and I which has helped us a lot....I’ve been treated for unexplained infertility since late 2017. I began with the normal testing, including testing for my husband. We then went into clomid and clomid plus trigger shot plus IUIs. I ended up needing surgery to remove some cysts that were not resolving on their own. We are now moving into IVF.
Strengthens- Relatively easy to get an appointment, including weekends and same day. Having multiple locations [Florida Institute for Repro Med] is very nice. Weaknesses- The administrative staff is not the best (particularly their billing staff). With infertify, some tests are very time sensitive and once my account was put on hold, because the staff collected the wrong amount.... IUI Cycles-$500-$600 a cycle. Clomid was covered under my insurance at the local pharmacy. IVF- early stages so unsure of the exact costs.

As a provider, Dr. Von Goerban truly cares about me as a patient. When I come back into the office after a failed cycle, I’ve been greeted with a warm smile and a hug, which has helped ease how hard this process has been. She’s been through it herself so she has first hand knowledge.
