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.

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.

He [Dr. Traub] is an ok doctor, but doesnt have the best bed side manner....I dont think he is able to see holistically at all fertility related needs. He is just looking at things from a medical stand point...When the results were not as expected, he said its just bad luck....in terms of demeanor hes a nice guy, but again doesnt see fertility issues as anything more than from a medical perspective...he compared my eggs to that of a honda and said i would never be a benz.
They [Island Repro Services] are efficient in their workflow. Received co-insurance bills which was somewhat annoying. It seems like there were always charges for something even though my insurance covers monitoring...Sally was great and showed empathy to me as a patient. However, she would not answer questions and I would need to email Dr. Traub anyway. The other nursing staff were ok, including the sonogram techs and the phlebotomist. They were all nice, but were not very knowledgeable about answers to questions.
How was your experience with Michael Traub at Island Reproductive Services?
When the results were not as expected, he said its just bad luck. When after four transfers with five embryos there was no pregnancy, he compared my eggs to that of a honda and said i would never be a benz. I wish he was more upfront about things instead of waiting until there are no other options except starting over. in terms of demeanor hes a nice guy, but again doesnt see fertility issues as anything more than from a medical perspective. Vitamins, acuptuncture, etc. are all bs to him. only after 3 failed transfers did he even agree to a endo scratch even though he called it fraud previously.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Traub at Island Reproductive Services?
if you are paying out of pocket, he will never say no. that means that where another doctor might say take a break to heal after surgery, he would never do that.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Traub at Island Reproductive Services?
He is an ok doctor, but doesnt have the best bed side manner. The office runs efficiently, but sometimes it seems like they are just out to make money. My one gripe is that I was and still am very emotionally invested and he never once told me to take a break or anything. Right after surgery we did another retrieval. I dont think he is able to see holistically at all fertility related needs. He is just looking at things from a medical stand point.
Describe the protocols Michael Traub used in your cycles at Island Reproductive Services and their degree of success.
dr traub only subscribes to antagonist protocols. i did high stims with clomid and he never tried anything different.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Island Reproductive Services. (Assigned nurse: Sally)
Sally was great and showed empathy to me as a patient. However, she would not answer questions and I would need to email Dr. Traub anyway. The other nursing staff were ok, including the sonogram techs and the phlebotomist. They were all nice, but were not very knowledgeable about answers to questions.
Describe your experience with Island Reproductive Services.
They are efficient in their workflow. Received co-insurance bills which was somewhat annoying. It seems like there were always charges for something even though my insurance covers monitoring.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Island Reproductive Services.
it was very efficient. they never seemed to have more than 3-4 patients in the office at one time.

it cost 22k for two cycles; paid out of pocket plus thousands more for medication.
Describe Michael Traub's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Island Reproductive Services.
he prefers to do a single transfer, but if you are paying out of pocket it seems like he will do whatever you request.
