8.1
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.

Dr. McCarthy's bedside manner is exceptional...her specialized care and knowledge of your specific situation don't make you feel like just another number at all...she truly feels like a friend...She has this warmness to her and I feel like she truly does care about each and every one of her patients. When none of our embryos made it freeze, she was the one calling me with this news and offering comfort. When we had our follow up appointment to discuss what went wrong in our egg retrieval cycle, she was direct but gentle when sharing all our information.
Due to my diminished ovarian reserve, we did an aggressive protocol [at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine] in hopes of stimulating the microscopic follicles. Unfortunately, this didn't work. I started with 4 eggs at baseline and had 4 eggs retrieved...Carly [nurse] was amazing! During each out my monitoring appointments ahead of egg retrieval she was never in a rush to get me in and out. She answered questions and was so thorough. She was also so encouraging and positive which was so needed during my first cycle.
How was your experience with Jenna McCarthy at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. McCarthy offers exceptional care. She has this warmness to her and I feel like she truly does care about each and every one of her patients. When none of our embryos made it freeze, she was the one calling me with this news and offering comfort. When we had our follow up appointment to discuss what went wrong in our egg retrieval cycle, she was direct but gentle when sharing all our information. I definitely don't feel like just another patient. When in treatment with Dr. McCarthy, she truly feels like a friend.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jenna McCarthy at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Trust her. She knows what she is doing.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jenna McCarthy at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. McCarthy's bedside manner is exceptional. Although IVFmd does batch cycles which can make you feel like a number, her specialized care and knowledge of your specific situation don't make you feel like just another number at all.

Carly was amazing! During each out my monitoring appointments ahead of egg retrieval she was never in a rush to get me in and out. She answered questions and was so thorough. She was also so encouraging and positive which was so needed during my first cycle.
Describe your experience with IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
IVFmd is an amazing practice filled with incredibly talented doctors. The only weakness I see is that they do batch cycles. This is a bit frustrating because it's on their schedule not your own cycle, but it is my understanding that batch cycles are very common in the IVF world. It just takes a little getting used to.

From the moment I walked into the clinic everyone including Dr. Gelman took the time to talk to me about my medical situation and all of the things they would like to do to help me get pregnant...I've visited with Dr. Gelman for an initial consultation. We discussed my medical history as where I stand today. He did an ultrasound and recommended a nutritionist. It was nice that the clinic had a nutritionist on staff. Dr. Gelman was very knowledgeable, respectful, had great bedside manner
From my initial phone call [with IVFMD South Florida], everyone was very cordial and helpful. I was able to make an appointment quickly. Dr. Gelman, and his staff are all very knowledgeable and helpful. They go out of their way to help you figure out this crazy journey that you are on. They helped me deal with the financial aspects of paying for all of this with no insurance coverage and gave me a list of all the things I needed to do prior to IVF. They even have a nutritionist on staff who makes sure you go into your procedure with the best body you can have.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
As I am still in the initial consultation phase, I was not assigned a specific nurse just yet. While at the consultation I did have bloodwork done and was told what my next steps would be. The nurses were all very nice and did a good job of explaining what I would need to do next.

Dr Wood was very honest with me from the beginning. I was 45 when I started with Dr Woods. She said lets give you your best shot...Before my cycle we started with Vitamin D, Co Q -10, and several other supplements to help egg quality...Her testing went above and beyond and she discovered 2 issues that could get in the way of me holding a pregnancy by requiring testing that went a step beyond.
The entire staff here [at IVFMD South Florida Institute] becomes like friends and family...Aside from running behind most of the time they are awesome! They know you by name, are very communicative, and always show empathy to your situation. They are very organized in the way they communicate information to you and you always know what to expect.
How was your experience with Ellen Wood at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
I was seeing a different Dr and was not happy with when a friend recommended me to Dr Wood. Dr Wood was very honest with me from the beginning. I was 45 when I started with Dr Woods. She said lets give you your best shot and that is what I feel like she did. Vitamins, supplements, monitoring everything possible. We talked about mental health, physical health, my support system. From day one I have felt like Dr Woods was just invested in my pregnancy as i was. Her testing went above and beyond and she discovered 2 issues that could get in the way of me holding a pregnancy by requiring testing that went a step beyond. I so appreciated her taking this extra step instead of waiting until something goes wrong. We have moved onto donor eggs but what I know is if there is a way for it to happen Dr Woods will find it. And that is a great trust to have in your doctor!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ellen Wood at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Be ready to have hard truths, positives and negatives, and tons of details. She knows her stuff and she will be very open with you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ellen Wood at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Ellen Wood is very honest and detailed in her patient care. She has always made me feel like she is on my team and the moment I met her I knew, if there is a way for me to conceive she would find it. She is not rude but she is also no BS.
Describe the protocols Ellen Wood used in your cycles at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Before my cycle we started with Vitamin D, Co Q -10, and several other supplements to help egg quality. I do not recall all the injectables and pills but I do know Dr Woods paid very close attention to my results and adjusted accordingly. I trust her completely.
Describe your experience with your nurse at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Grethal )
The entire staff here becomes like friends and family. They are always a friendly face and both encouraging and empathetic. I love this office.

Describe Ellen Wood's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
Dr Woods recommends a single embryo transfer but says it is your body and she will do two. No more than two.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
I was pleasantly surprised with the level of care and communication that I had with Dr Eisermann and his IVF Coordinator Jodi. They were great and always answered my questions and never made me feel inferior. Dr. Eisermann also had excellent bedside manner and made his best to make me feel at ease and as if he really truly cares...He was very honest with us from the very beginning about the low success rate we could expect if we used my own eggs due to my diminished ovarian reserve. He never made us feel rushed or pressured into choosing any specific treatment or protocol. He also worked very well with my local doctor when it came to making all of the arrangements for my treatment and deciding what would work best for me based on my particular case. On the day of the embryo transfer, he was very kind and gentle and was very comforting. I felt a little rushed, but I think that's just because he is so used to doing the procedure. But he spoke with my husband both before and after the transfer, making sure we had no questions for him and to give us his best wishes for a positive pregnancy.
Because of my endometriosis, I was put on a month of oral birth control and about three weeks of Lupron prior to embryo transfer [at IVFMD South Florida]...They [nurses] communicated well and always answered my questions in a timely manner...The IVF transfer alone was about $10,000.00 The medication and monitoring was paid separately (and the purchasing of donor eggs). All that other stuff was about another $15,000.00
How was your experience with Juergen Eisermann at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
He has been doing this for a very long time and is therefore very knowledgeable.

He never made us feel rushed or pressured into choosing any specific treatment or protocol.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Juergen Eisermann at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
You won't be speaking directly with him most of the time, so its best to be patient with his staff who will do most of the liaising with patients.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Juergen Eisermann at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
After a not so great experience with the assistant staff for another doctor within the same clinic, I was pleasantly surprised with the level of care and communication that I had with Dr Eisermann and his IVF Coordinator Jodi. They were great and always answered my questions and never made me feel inferior. Dr. Eisermann also had excellent bedside manner and made his best to make me feel at ease and as if he really truly cares.
Describe the protocols Juergen Eisermann used in your cycles at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
He had all of our information from tests and stuff done with previous doctors, so the only other things we had to do was repeat a sperm analysis and get immunological blood work on me. The blood work showed that I had antiphosolipids so he added an anti-coagulant medication to my regimen on the day of transfer. Because of my endometriosis, I was put on a month of oral birth control and about three weeks of Lupron prior to embryo transfer. I've also been given progesterone support via PIO injections and vaginal suppositories, and I've been taking estrogen orally, vaginally and with patches. So far everything looks good, we will be having our Beta HCG later this week.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
They were all very good. They communicated well and always answered my questions in a timely manner. I also felt very confident in them and felt secure in knowing that my concerns or questions were actually making it back to the doctor and they weren't just using their own discretion on what was necessary and what wasn't, which was a relief since I didn't get that experience with some other staff members at a different clinic.
Describe your experience with IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
It is very nice and clean. The downsides are that parking is difficult if you do not use Valet Parking, and sometimes the wait can be long (and the waiting room gets a little crowded sometimes). Also billing can sometimes be a bit time consuming. Another thing I liked was, that because I am an international patient, I had to order a lot of my medication and they were very accomodating with receiving the packages on my behalf and storing them for me until such time as I was able to collect them.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Juergen Eisermann at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The IVF transfer alone was about $10,000.00 The medication and monitoring was paid separately (and the purchasing of donor eggs). All that other stuff was about another $15,000.00

Dr. Thompson and her staff were so kind, always answering my (many) questions and making me feel safe and secure throughout the entire egg freezing process. She explained the process in great detail and the possible outcomes. Everything went exactly as scheduled. I was told to buy exactly the amount of drugs I needed, so I didn't have to overpay for drugs I wasn't using (I've heard this happens a lot with egg freezing). I am in my very late 30's and have PCOS, and thought maybe this was going to be a waste of time, but the regimen they put me on was perfect for me and we got plenty of eggs out.
I only have strengths to mention as I was content throughout the entire process [at IVFMD]. I didn't have to wait too long, everything went as planned, the staff is kind and receptive. I would highly recommend this practice and Dr. Thompson to anyone with fertility concerns...I was given great instructions on how to self inject and went in every other day during treatment to have an ultrasound and get my blood taken. I felt safe and at ease throughout the entire process...[nursing staff] Makes you feel important and responds to all questions quickly and clearly...Dr. Thompson and her staff were so kind, always answering my (many) questions and making me feel safe and secure throughout the entire egg freezing process.

How was your experience with Kimberly Thompson at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
I don't have anything negative to say at all. The entire experience surpassed by expectations. I am so happy and grateful for Dr. Thompson and the entire staff at IVFMD. From the start, I was hesitant about the egg retrieval process as I am in my very late 30's and have PCOS. Dr. Thompson explained to me the possible outcomes and the realistic future of what occurs later when and if the eggs are used. She was honest, kind and extremely knowledgeable. I felt comfortable throughout the entire process and was very happy with the results.

He [Dr. Eisermann] discouraged a single transfer. It wasn't really discussed and I was afraid to push for it and lose one. I was ok with it...he helped me conceive my first child via IUI. years later he helped me conceive my second via IVF. He is incredibly smart and friendly. He will tell you the truth and not give you false hopes. He has decades of experience and has seen it all. I think the only complaint I have is that he took too long to try the more aggressive treatment that finally worked.
Problems with Insurance billing [at IVFMD South Florida]. I was erroneously charged for things that were covered...The only weakness is that they should offer counseling of some kind to patients who are really struggling like I was. I happily have my healthy babies and I still hurt from years of fertility struggle...They are generally very nice [nurses]. However, at one point I was getting treatment for months with no success and I was really struggling emotionally. One staff member who had taken some leave saw me and said, "Oh, wow! Why are you still here!?" I know it wasn't intentional but I was so sensitive and it was hurtful.

Since I has unexplained infertility, he started me with timed intercourse. Then he tried ta procedure to clear my tubes. Then he gave me medicine to boost my ovulation and timed intercourse. Then he did IUI . I finally got pregnant after several months of IUIs and I had a healthy baby. Years later I returned and we did another IUI and then an egg retrieval and two IVF cycles to finally have my healthy baby.

Furthermore, he is a very kind human being and my appointments with him were always on time....I was diagnosed with endometriosis and a blocked tube by a previous OB/GYN.

How was your experience with Scott Roseff at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
I absolutely trust Dr. Roseff as an expert in infertility and IVF. He has a lot of experience and keeps up to date with current research. Furthermore, he is a very kind human being and my appointments with him were always on time. I definitely felt like I was in the right hands when it came to my treatment. I would not hesitate to recommend him for his expertise.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scott Roseff at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
I would tell a prospective patient to not look elsewhere. Take a look at Dr. Roseff's success rates. Do not waste your money at a different clinic! Do it right, so you only have to do it once.
Describe the protocols Scott Roseff used in your cycles at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I was diagnosed with endometriosis and a blocked tube by a previous OB/GYN. Only Dr. Roseff diagnosed me as having PCOS, which was a key component in treating my infertility (No OB/GYN in my whole life detected PCOS, and I've had a lot of them). I went straight to IVF since I personally knew other treatments would be a waste of time and money with all the factors affecting my fertility. We used the antagonist protocol, which yielded great results without throwing me into OHSS. I requested to do a fresh transfer despite the fact that Dr. Roseff advised against it because of my high hormone levels from PCOS. Unfortunately the fresh transfer resulted in a chemical pregnancy, but that is of no fault of Dr. Roseff (he did warn me against it). I did a frozen transfer next, which Dr. Roseff stated he was very optimistic about. I am currently 24 weeks pregnant and feel my little baby BOY kicking me everyday. He knew it would work this time, thats how amazing he is at his job.
Describe your experience with your nurse at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Kristi)
Kristi is the absolute best nurse I have ever met (and I work as a nurse!). She is ALWAYS available by email (or phone), with super quick responses. Having a nurse thats always available by email or phone is essential when you are undergoing such a complicated treatment like IVF. She was always very reassuring and knowledgeable about what comes next in the treatment plan. I don't think I could have made it through IVF without her!
Describe your experience with IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The Boca Raton clinic does not perform all the procedures so I did have to go to the clinic in Jupiter for egg retrieval and transfer. The RE at that clinic that did my retrieval and transfers (Dr. McCarthy), is absolutely the nicest and funniest lady ever. She always put me at ease during the procedures. The Boca Raton clinic itself is very nice and clean. The main receptionist Chantelle is great, and she really knows her stuff. The lab ladies were very very nice as well. One weakness of the clinic I went to was the lab for blood draws would sometimes be backed up and I would have to wait up to a half-hour. However, that's not too bad at all compared to the wait times I have had at the OB and other doctors.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scott Roseff at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I was able to do my treatment cycle through WinFertility, which bundled the IVF with meds for a discount.
Describe Scott Roseff's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
Dr. Roseff is very pro-eSET which I find great. The clinic's results are so great and Dr. Roseff knows when an eSET is best for a patient. He does let the patient choose if they want to do more than one embryo though.

Dr. Alford is wonderful but don’t expect too many warm and fuzzies! She means well and cares but is not overally warm and fuzzy.

Dr. Joelle Taylor was very knowledgeable and accessible throughout the whole egg retrieval process and now through the IVF process to date... For my egg retrieval everything went very smoothly with all medications and the injections. I am currently undergoing the IVF process and did not get my period in time to start the birth control, so Dr. Taylor's protocol is to start the Lupron and not take the birth control at all.
Miami office [of Fertility & IVF Center] was great. I didn't have any issues regarding the process, the nurses, the medications or the procedure at the end. The Jupiter office overall is very communicative about everything going on so far in my IVF process. I am just starting the last month before my transfer... Dr Taylor was with Miami office when I did my egg retrieval and all the nurses were organized and polite and very knowledgeable about all medications administered and showing me how to use them. Dr Taylor is now in Jupiter (her name was not shown there to choose) and the nurses are all very sweet and polite, but don't seem to be as knowledgeable as the ones in Miami.

Dr. Gelman is clinical enough to give you confidence in your treatment but warm enough to make you feel like a human. He always presented the course of treatment based on evidence and was aggressive with making sure we had the best shot each attempt.... He was protective of the embryos we had created and did extensive immune testing after our second miscarriage to find the root of the issue. It was clear that he was invested in our success.
I am overall very pleased with the clinic [IVFMD South Florida Inst]. Despite being a large center, it maintains a personal feel. I did have issues with the financial department - the contract I was supposed to sign had huge errors and I had to argue about having them adjusted.... The nursing team was responsive and caring. They were patient with me and kept me organized.... We did a 2 fresh 2 frozen package with ARC fertility and it was around $18,000.

I dont remember, we did use menopur and follistim for my egg retrieval. I had 14 eggs retrieved and that led to 6 5-day embryos. We did a fresh cycle and transferred 2 embryos. I got pregnant but had a miscarriage. We did a frozen cycle and transferred 2 embryos and got pregnant with my son. We did a frozen cycle with one embryo transferred and it was negative.

During my first to ivf cycles we transferred 2 embryos each time. Both times I got pregnant with one baby.

That cycle did not work although he indicated the success rate with 1 vs 2 embryos was not significantly different.

Dr. Alford is a very intelligent woman and she knows exactly what she is doing. Which eases the stress that comes with this situation. She has an educated and caring answer for any and all questions.

IVFMD of Naples has an extremely caring staff. Their want and need to help with our infertility needs is very focused and supportive. Their weakness are not communicating about some hidden costs and explaining all that is covered in their packages.... My wife and myself receive phone calls from our nurse letting us know exactly what is going on. Jodi is always willing to work with us and help us when we come to any toad blocks. All of the nurses at the office are pleasant, caring and genuinely exited for their patients.

To date we have had our consult, my wife started with an SIS, this is a saline ultrasound used to look at the uterus and cervix. Now we are starting with the meds and have weekly blood tests and ultrasounds to check hormone levels and monitor the uterine lining. We will be doing the IVF transfer in the next coming weeks.

Dr. Roseff is caring. He makes it a point to remember personal details I tell him (such as vacation destinations) and asks about it on the next visit....Dr. Roseff offers a free second opinion so I met with him after 7 failed IUI cycles with a previous fertility clinic.... he immediately determined that I had a thyroid issue which can cause infertility.... He recommended a new protocol: IUI with Femara....
The clinic [IVFMD South Florida] is clean and the staff are friendly. The check-in process is very smooth. As long as you arrive on time for your appointment, then there is almost never a wait. The Boca location is not open on weekends though, so you have to travel to another location... Nurse Kristi is great! At each appointment, we always share laughter. She spends time with me to explain the procedures, protocol, etc.
How was your experience with Scott Roseff at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Roseff is caring. He makes it a point to remember personal details I tell him (such as vacation destinations) and asks about it on the next visit. He hugs me every time I see him in the office. He explains the issues and treatment thoroughly to make sure I understand everything before I leave his office. I'm always prepared to ask questions, but he usually answers them all before I have to ask!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scott Roseff at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Follow his recommendations even if he gives you the option. He wants the best possible outcome to avoid wasting your time and money with multiple cycles.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Scott Roseff at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
The Boca office is not the main location. It is a suite in a building and Dr. Roseff is the only doctor on site. I prefer this small location because you don't feel rushed in and out. You see the same receptionist and same nurses, they become your friends. They know you by name and remember your needs.
Describe the protocols Scott Roseff used in your cycles at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Dr. Roseff offers a free second opinion so I met with him after 7 failed IUI cycles with a previous fertility clinic. I transferred my medical records to him for review prior to the initial consultation. Upon review, he immediately determined that I had a thyroid issue which can cause infertility. After one year of treatment, my prior RE failed to diagnose this! Dr.Roseff had me test again to confirm and treat me accordingly. He also advised I had a dimished ovarian reserve which I already knew. He did thorough testing including an SIS which was perfect. He recommended a new protocol: IUI with Femara. I have tried Clomid before (failed) and he advised I might have better luck with Femara. He also recommended IVF but left me with the choice. I opted for IUI cycle #8 - failed. He strongly believes based on his experience that I have endometriosis and that is preventing my chances to conceive with IUI. The only way to diagnose endometriosis is with a laparoscopy procedure. Instead of spending time and money on a laparaoscopy procedure, we agreed to go straight to IVF treatment. I am currently about to start stims in my first IVF cycle and I feel well prepared!
Describe your experience with your nurse at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Kristi )
Nurse Kristi is great! At each appointment, we always share laughter. She spends time with me to explain the procedures, protocol, etc. She uplifts and calms me when I'm sad or stressed. The best way to reach her is via e-mail, she responds almost immediately - and I always have lots of questions.
Describe your experience with IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The clinic is clean and the staff are friendly. The check-in process is very smooth. As long as you arrive on time for your appointment, then there is almost never a wait. The Boca location is not open on weekends though, so you have to travel to another location (Cooper City, South Miami, Naples, Jupiter) for certain treatments (i.e. IUI, egg retrieval, egg transfer). This could be an inconvenience depending on where you live.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scott Roseff at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
This clinic accepts United Healthcare insurance so for office visits and ultrasounds I only had to pay a co-pay. They also allowed me to use LabCorp for some bloodwork which was covered 100%. IUI is about $200 plus $125 for thawing of frozen donor sperm.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Alford is fantastic. She is sweet and explains everything in complete detail. She also works to be as accommodating as possible for me.... We did a standard IVF cycle starting with birth control. From there, we did Gonal-F and Menopur, both of which had to be increased multiple times. My eggs mature late, so my retrieval was pushed back to the very last day they could do it before moving me to a different office. We did a freeze-all cycle. At retrieval, we got 25 eggs, but only 6 were mature. Of those six, only 3 made it to blastocyst.
IVFMD has a fantastic team for the most part. The doctor is knowledgeable and wants to help her patients. The clinical staff and overall office is, at times, chaotic and poorly run. We were often times given information about IVF requirements, like BMI, blood pressure, and Pap smears, at the last minute. In fact, I was told four weeks out that I had to lose six pounds or else my cycle would be cancelled. When I asked why I hadn't been told about this requirement sooner, I was told that they had "suggested" I lose weight as if it meant the same thing as "had to."
How was your experience with Connie Alford at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Alford is fantastic. She is sweet and explains everything in complete detail. She also works to be as accommodating as possible for me. My drive to her clinic is an hour and my work schedule does not afford me much time off. Her staff has done their best to work around my schedule and she has been very sensitive of my feelings while I navigate my second miscarriage.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Connie Alford at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Please give all IVF patients the rules as early as possible, especially if there is some line they aren't meeting, like blood pressure or BMI. This will give patients the most time to get to where the need to be to move forward and reduce stress in the overall process.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Connie Alford at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Alford is fantastic. The IVF nurses and ultrasound technicians are fantastic, but her other nursing and office staff were generally rude and heartless. There have been multiple times where I have left the office in tears because of certain individuals working there.

Katy is fantastic. She is sweet and has a sense of humor. She made us feel at ease about the IVF process and was there to answer questions by phone or email whenever we needed during that time. Danielle was another nurse that we loved. She was fantastic and very compassionate as well. Vicki, one of the nurses, was less so. There were multiple times when she played off office oversights and made us feel as though we were at fault for her clinic's screw ups. We were constantly given information from her at the last minute about BMI and blood pressure requirements. She asked us questions like "are you taking your medications like you're supposed to" as if we'd flush 20k down the toilet. Her tone was generally condescending and she took everything entirely too seriously but then would berate us about needing to reduce our stress level.

Describe Connie Alford's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
We started going in October with the idea that we would do IVF in June. I was told I "should see" a doctor about my blood pressure even though I told them it was only high at the office and that I "should probably" try to lose some weight. Jump ahead to MAY and I am told that: 1. I MUST lose weight to get my BMI under 36 or my cycle will be cancelled. (4 weeks out) 2. I MUST be seen by a doctor for my blood pressure or my cycle will be cancelled. (2 weeks out) 3. I MUST have a pap smear done or my cycle will be cancelled. (2 weeks out) Why wasn't I told all of this IN OCTOBER when we decided on IVF to begin with? The DAY BEFORE my transfer, I am called and told I need to come in that morning for more blood work and that the lack of appointment being made already was simply an oversight.

Dr Gelman used a less aggressive stimulation protocol with me due to my age- 41yrs old (less drugs) than my previous doctor and it seems the protocol was better - we got more embryos with his protocol than with my previous doctor. He also insisted on using the genetic testing on the embryos which we did for two cycles, when all results came back bad, he proposed trying transfer without testing embryos. this is what we're doing right now
The financial team [at IVFMD- S. FL Institute- Miami] seemed a little cold at first. The rest of the team good and accommodating. I felt good during each visit from seeing the phlebotomist to the nurses that were doing my ultrasound.... I worked with WinFertility (their cost was below the cost of the clinic)... Personalized service, nurses knew patients by name. Clinic was accommodating around my schedule/ vacation days. All questions addressed
How was your experience with Kenneth Gelman at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Gelman is a good doctor. Very thorough and knowledgeable. Did a complete set of tests, more than my previous fertility doctor did. He is for an open dialog, doctor to patient. He will tell you his opinion, proposed a treatment and wants your feedback and open dialog to discuss your thoughts, looks for your agreement and acceptance of the plan. He wants to be sure you understand and agree with what will be done.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kenneth Gelman at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Do your homework (some reading on the subject) so you can have open discussion with the doctor , ask questions and understand all that's being done. This doctor appreciate your opinion on the subject.

She [Dr. McCarthy] is very thorough and does her due diligence in testing and analysis prior to starting fertility treatments...Used various protocols for the each retrieval and then for frozen egg transfer. All retrieval’s started with regulating menses with birth control. Then with careful monitoring started adding Follistum, then Menopur, and then Cetrotide. Used HCG for trigger. Another time used microdose Lupron prior to stim start...
Carly, my IVF coordinator [at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine], has been a god-send. She responds to every email and call that I have and is typically very swift with her responses. She is the glue of the operation...Strengths are their fabulous doctors, clean facilities, wonderful staff and accessibility.

How was your experience with Jenna McCarthy at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr McCarthy is very good at her job. She is able to balance her expertise, training and education with compassion and humor. She Is great about responding to questions and concerns and is always open to any insight and suggestions we bring to the table. During various procedures, she is wonderful at communicating what she is doing and why. She is very cautious and careful and does a thorough evaluation of all potential variables that may be contributing to our inability to have a baby.

Been able to get to know the staff at the clinic. Typically staff and Doctor are easily accessible and quick to respond to inquiries, concerns, etc. After 2+ years going to this clinic, we have been able to forge relationships with most of the staff. Also, there is very few turnover of staff which is nice. Relatively small office with 2 doctors and appropriate staff so it’s not a huge practice where you see different doctors each time.

Dr. McCarthy is fantastic at communicating and relating with her patients. No question no matter how small was ever a dumb question. She has come in after hours to see me and cancelled her entire day to perform emergency surgery on me. Her knowledge and experience is a pristine. She is confident but not overly confident in her abilities...all of my FETs I was on a long lupron protocol in order to give my lining extended time to grow. I was also on viagra for my lining with FETs in addition to the PIO, DelEstrogen, Estrace. Once I became pregnant, I started Triple Progesterone treatment as it has been shown to help those with RPL.
[The nurses at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine are] Easy to get in touch with, but sometimes difficult to know who to talk to since there wasnt one specific one assigned...Once or twice my calendar did not reflect the changes that Dr. McCarthy and I had personally discussed. The nurse did not update them...We spent around 13 for our fresh cycle not including meds. Meds generally ran 5-6k. For FETs we spent around 5000 plus 3 in meds.

My first stimulation cycle I used Menapur,Gonal F and cetrotide. I believe they retrieved approximated 10 embryos (?) but only 1 lived to day 5. That transferred embryo did not result in a pregnancy. The 2nd stimulation I used ganirelix, follistim, low dose ovidril, cetrotide and lupron. That resulted in 16 embryos retrieved (?) and 4 made it to day 5. 1 transferred and did not result in a pregnancy. The other 3 were PGS and of those 3, 2 were normal. 1 was abnormal and discarded. Of the 2 remaining. We transferred 1 and that resulted in a pregnancy which I am currently 5 mo pregnant. And the other one is frozen for a future transfer.

Fortunate enough with his [Dr. Kenneth Gelman's] guidance and wisdom I only had to do the transfer once. He recommended a specific biopsy that would indicate exactly when to do the transfer and how much more of a specific hormone I would neeed and initially I did not want to do it because I did not want to delay the process any further. Again, he didn’t force, only suggest but I did not want to risk doing the transfer and something else came up. After doing that test it showed I needed an extra two days of progesterone as compared to an avg person.
Grethel [a nurse at IVFMD S FL Institute-Hollywood] was unbelievable. I would tell every single person to ask for her. Belkis was also pleasant but that’s abt it. I won’t speak badly about the other one because Grethel was that amazing. She responded to emails in a beyond timely fashion and I considered her to be heaven sent. She compassionate and caring. She showing empathy and was genuine. I cannot emphasize how incredible she is.
How was your experience with Kenneth Gelman at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
He was able to answer all of my questions and concerns and even fears with me in detail. When I was frustrated with the process, he would take his time, gave recommendations but never forced ideas or suggestions. There are many other doctors that could have milked this situation for money and made me do certain treatments over and over but he was effiecieny and very knowledgeable. I found myself fortunate to have been referred to him. Great sense of humor by the way!

Describe the protocols Kenneth Gelman used in your cycles at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Initially we weren’t sure what the problem was, everything appeared normal but I wasn’t able to fertilize. We did fertility drugs first and that didn’t work, then tried iui and realised that didn’t work and then we did specific blood tests, and which showed abnormal levels in hormones which gave me an explanation and some closure. So now it was a matter of rectifying. Fortunate enough with his guidance and wisdom I only had to do the transfer once. He recommended a specific biopsy that would indicate exactly when to do the transfer and how much more of a specific hormone I would neeed and initially I did not want to do it because I did not want to delay the process any further.

Describe your experience with your nurse at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Grethel)
Grethel was unbelievable. I would tell every single person to ask for her. Belkis was also pleasant but that’s abt it. I won’t speak badly about the other one because Grethel was that amazing. She responded to emails in a beyond timely fashion and I considered her to be heaven sent. She compassionate and caring. She showing empathy and was genuine. I cannot emphasize how incredible she is. I would send lots of emails with questions and she answered every single one even on her days off but she cares for her position and her patients. I don’t remember all the other names, but both Jennifer’s also deserve an honorable mention. Both again were great at follow ups and very patient with me and my questions. The nurse who took blood is also an angel. Very gentle and very compassionate. Dylin and Andrea at the front desk/check out are also amazing. Great staff!

  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
Describe the specific things that went wrong at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
With the first ivf coordinator she never followed up with me or meds and I would call the pharmacy and they would not have it. For me to drive to the margate pharmacy and then not have it was not ok

Dr. Gelman was the first doctor to provide us with real answers and actually take the time to make sure all of the proper tests were completed and although both my husband and I area relatively healthy, made modifications to our lifestyle with vitamins and diet to only further help.

Dr. Gelman was the first doctor to provide us with real answers and actually take the time to make sure all of the proper tests were completed and although both my husband and I area relatively healthy, made modifications to our lifestyle with vitamins and diet to only further help. Not only did Dr. Gelman always have the best bedside manner, so did his nurses and staff. I can't say enough about everyone. Aislynn, always made me laugh even when I was so stressed or worried.

I grew fond and close to all three of them as well. Thanks to Dr. Gelman and his staff we are expecting our miracle twin boys. After a very long journey, we are forever grateful to him and his staff. I feel so blessed to have found their office and couldn't recommend them enough, especially for how hard and emotional this road can be, you need a team like this by your side to give you answers and get results.

If I had known about Dr Roseff initially I would have gone straight to him! we did Lupron to surpress the ovaries then estrogen and progesterone timed for FET. After a miscarriage at 6.5 weeks after a positive pregnancy test the first time we did an endometrial biopsy and identified endometritis. We treated it and did a follow up biopsy which came back negative. The second transfer worked and I am now 10 weeks pregnant with a singleton. Did elective single embryo transfer.
[Nurse at IVFMD] Kristi is incredibly kind and answered countless questions from me very quickly. Every time I went to the office Kristi and all the nursing staff were efficient , helpful, compassionate and enthusiastic depending on the circumstances...The Boca office is a very friendly, personable place where they know you and you are not a number. I had a lot of tests and a lot of paperwork and everything was processed accurately and efficiently. They coordinate very well with the Miami office that does the transfers and contains the lab
How was your experience with Scott Roseff at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Again, I think Dr Roseff is exceptional in his balance of explaining the realities of ivf while still remaining positive. I felt like he left no stone unturned when it came to diagnosis. Much of the diagnostics were done before we even began instead of waiting for issues and then fixing them along the way. Every time I sat down with him I felt like my success was important to Dr Roseff. He is very patient and explains things very well. At no point did I feel like I was rushed or that any question wasn't answered intelligently and thoroughly. its a difficult process emotionally and financially and that is not lost on him.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scott Roseff at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Ask a lot of questions. He is a great communicator and is happy to share the knowledge he has accumulated over the years. You will not be rushed out of the office and he enjoys his job!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Scott Roseff at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Roseff's office is a standout in the 3 practices I have visited for level of care. His entire staff is friendly, well informed, and efficient. Dr Roseff went above and beyond to answer questions, explain everything thoroughly with immediate feedback in the office or through email when issues arose outside of appointments. Dr Roseff is very current on all the issues and still recognizes above all that this is an extremely difficult and emotional process. I felt like he was really invested in my success and when that success came he was genuinely happy for me! The first time didn't work but he was encouraging and we dug a little deeper to resolve an issue. He is forthright about issues and probabilities while still remaining positive.
