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.

Overall a good doctor. Still definitely just starting out her practice and a bit cautious (very inclined to try less invasive procedures for longer than others)... Be clear about what you want to achieve and how aggressive you want to be with your treatment.
The nurses always called right before they closed for the day, so if they didn't call, I had to page a doctor for results, which is less than ideal. Also if I missed a call and the voicemail they left was unclear about anything, I again would have to page a doctor given how late in the day they would call.

Overall a good doctor. Still definitely just starting out her practice and a bit cautious (very inclined to try less invasive procedures for longer than others). With time and experience, expect her to be fantastic.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Greenwich Fertility and IVF Center.
Only issue I had with the clinic was once or twice receiving a call from the nursing staff with blood work results. The nurses always called right before they closed for the day, so if they didn't call, I had to page a doctor for results, which is less than ideal. Also if I missed a call and the voicemail they left was unclear about anything, I again would have to page a doctor given how late in the day they would call.

Dr. Witt had a very neutral, almost dispassionate, approach to my care. Whenever I met with him, he was very clinical and blunt about the odds of successful pregnancy. I did not feel confident that he was really recommending the best course of treatment or attempting to narrow down my specific infertility problems in order to address them...It felt like he was doing things "by the book" rather than really evaluating what might be wrong and making adjustments every cycle to try and achieve a success.
I felt as though the nursing staff [at Greenwich Fertility] was very caring, however the doctor [Dr Witt] was a bit impersonal. It felt like he was doing things "by the book" rather than really evaluating what might be wrong and making adjustments every cycle to try and achieve a success...Strengths were scheduling--they definitely made an effort to get you in at the appropriate time, and had convenient early morning hours to not interfere with work. They do not have a "no children in the waiting room" policy, so you will sometimes encounter couples trying for their second or third that bring in a toddler. That can be upsetting if you are coming in for a follow-up after a negative cycle. One major weakness is the insurance/billing department. They always had trouble coordinating with my insurance to get prior authorizations, even when told well in advance that I would need authorization for medications. We were also still receiving bills for procedures a year after stopping treatments because they were slow to bill insurance.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Barry Witt at Greenwich Fertility and IVF Center?
Do your research ahead of time and go in to every appointment with a list of questions. Don't be afraid to question what the doctor is recommending and make suggestions for more testing or a different course of treatment.

Describe the protocols Barry Witt used in your cycles at Greenwich Fertility and IVF Center and their degree of success.
First cycle was clomid only. Ultrasound showed two good follicles and we were instructed on appropriate timing of intercourse. Second cycle was clomid and IUI with trigger shot. Follicle development was good again. Third and fourth cycles were with Follistim injections plus trigger shot. On third cycle, IUI was cancelled due to too many mature follicles (high risk for multiples). On fourth cycle, IUI was completed. All cycles were unsuccessful. We were then told that our best chance for pregnancy was IVF, but that was still only about a 10% likelihood of success each cycle.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Greenwich Fertility and IVF Center.
Nursing staff was very warm and competent. Pros at doing blood draws, even with my tiny, difficult veins. Waiting for afternoon results was a bit anxiety provoking because they always called right before close of business and then if a medication change had to be made it could be difficult to get the mail order pharmacy on the phone.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Barry Witt at Greenwich Fertility and IVF Center.
We only did procedures covered by insurance, so costs were fairly minimal. We spent about $1500 total in the first year, when we had an insurance deductible.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Greenwich Fertility and IVF Center.
I had a lot of trouble dealing with the insurance department in getting prior authorization for medication. They seemed to have a blase attitude to the process, but these are expensive drugs and I was not in a position to pay out of pocket. They did fail to call with results a few times, but I was careful to watch the clock and call them before closing.

Dr. Witt was amazing. I felt comfortable and safe with him. He was always available, ALWAYS. He came in on a Sunday to perform a sonogram after I had pains when he easily could have waited till Monday. I appreciate everything he did for me and I have two beautiful children because of him.
Dr Witt and his team was compassionate and you felt like you were his only patient.
