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.

For more information please see our FAQs.

Where you see a “?” on the chart, a clinic has done fewer than 20 cycles in this category and age range, so the CDC says showing percentages from this small data set would be misleading and unreliable.

Dr. Lin was very thorough in his explanations, and gave us a comprehensive explanation of what he felt was our best course of action, while letting us have a say. He didn't push any unnecessary treatments on us, or additional medication, that he did not feel was beneficial. ... He was very thorough, if a bit repetitive. He never rushed us and always took the time to fully listen to and respond to questions. I really appreciate that he is up to date on the latest research and studies about fertility.
The strength is that the waiting times are very short, the billing department [Fertility Centers of Orange County] is great, and the waiting scheduling delay is not very long. You can usually get an appointment fairly quickly, and all ultrasounds are done in house by the doctor himself. ... There seemed to sometimes be a slight communication delay between the nurses and Dr. Lin, which resulted in phone calls where he did not have the latest information I provided to the client.

Describe the protocols Wayne Lin used in your cycles at Fertility Centers of Orange County and their degree of success.
We did letrozole and timed intercourse for three cycles, then moved onto letrozole and IUI. Letrozole started off at 5mg, but after poor response the first cycle, was upped to 7.5mg for 10 days, which produced a reasonable number of follicles. He didn't suggest IUI as he did not feel it made a significant difference but was happy to let us try.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County.
I paid my copay each visit, but nothing else was due as they are in network with my PPO. I chose to do a cash IUI, which was about $400. They also have a partner pharmacy for trigger shots, which made the cost significantly cheaper.
Describe Wayne Lin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Centers of Orange County.

My septum was corrected and 1 tube unblocked [ny Dr. Lane Wong], which is why we tried several IUIs before moving onto IVF. I responded great to all meds and ovulation was confirmed with each cycle however we concluded that although my tube was open it was not properly allowing the egg to make it into the tube. Due to my good response to meds Dr. Wayne Lin suggested we do a mini IVF cycle (minimal stimulation vs a conventional cycle) Due to the minimal stimulation less eggs where expected so we planned on ICSI and also planned to adjust the transfer date if needed depending on the number of successful fertilization. We did a Day 3 fresh transfer of 2 8 cell embryos which resulted in my no perfect 2 year old son. Unfortunately we had no embryos to freeze and would need to start IVF all over again in order to grow our family.
