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. Lipari is very compassionate and I can trust that he truly cares about me as a patient. He is dedicated to my care and has called me afterhours to answer questions as well as being available to perform transfers/retrievals even if it wasn't his "day" to do so. He never makes me feel rushed during appointments and makes sure to fully explain everything and answer all questions. He has made this very difficult and taxing journey easier to navigate through.
[Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine] Clinic is great with working with me on scheduling appointments around my work schedule. With the Gainesville clinic not being the primary clinic (which is in Jacksonville), it can take a while to get appointments with specific doctors due to them not being there every day. We also had a lot of issues with communication from billing department and being billed for incorrect amounts, but they always ended up fixing it in the end.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
don't be afraid to ask any question you think of, he will never make you feel like it isn't valid or rush you through the appointment
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
He is always sure to ask how I'm doing emotionally, especially after failed transfers. He is honest about effectiveness and cost of additional treatments (ie: lipid infusion) and doesn't recommend paying extra for something if he doesn't think it would be beneficial for me
Describe the protocols Christopher Lipari used in your cycles at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We have done 3 retrievals using an antagonist protocol with follistim, menopur, and ganirelix injections. Due to risk of OHSS we were not able to do the HCG trigger shot or fresh transfer and instead used Lupron trigger. We ended up with a total of 7 PGS tested/chromosomally normal embryos. Unfortunately our 4 frozen embryo transfers have been unsuccessful. We will be starting another retrieval cycle soon with the addition of human growth hormone to hopefully produce more chromosomally normal embryos.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Amanda)
Amanda has been great at working with my work schedule and even coming in early to work to draw my labs when needed. Super helpful with obtaining lab results even on days she was not scheduled to be working. Also helped when I was having issues with communication from pharmacy about my medication.

Describe Christopher Lipari's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Dr. Lipari strongly suggests single embryo transfers, especially with PGS tested embryos. After 2 failed single embryo transfers and a normal ERA result, we really wanted to transfer 2 embryos. After discussing possible outcomes/risks, he agreed to do this for us

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Lipari's biggest strength is that he listens to his patients. In the beginning of my treatment, I always felt more hopeful after meeting with Dr. Lipari. Dr. Lipari is also very well read. He will tell you about recently published research papers. At the same time, Dr. Lipari did not order thorough testing on me. Several tests ordered were done at my request.... While he is wonderful in so many ways, and while he is the only doctor to have discovered my endometriosis despite years of doctors visits explaining my pain, I do sometimes feel like a number when I am in an IVF cycle.
This clinic [Jacksonville Ctr for Repro Med] has several satellite locations, which is great for patients who do not live in Jacksonville. I've had issues with billing, and sometimes I have to wait a long time to speak with my doctor, but overall the clinic is organized and pleasant to work with. However, they share an embryologist between at least two locations, which is one of the reasons why your egg retrieval has to happen within a certain window of time.... Brittany is patient, well organized, and a great communicator.
How was your experience with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?

He will tell you about recently published research papers. At the same time, Dr. Lipari did not order thorough testing on me. Several tests ordered were done at my request. After my second IVF cycle with Dr. Lipari, I no longer felt more hopeful after meeting with him. In fact, I began questioning his expertise with my condition. He also did not thoroughly explain risks associated with PGS testing - he only advised us against PGS testing after I questioned the use of it with my condition. Moreover, he described a protocol one way, but then it was done very differently. All in all, I think Dr. Lipari is a great "first stop." If it weren't for him, my endometriosis may not have been discovered. His empathy and excellent bedside manners helped me cope with news about my condition. At the same time, I do wish he did more thorough testing, did not synchronize his patients' cycles, and more accurately/thoroughly described procedures.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Do research and advocate for yourself. Also, decide if you're comfortable with batching (i.e., having your cycle synced with other patients' cycles).
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lipari has excellent bedside manners. He actually takes his time to sit down and talk to you. He seems to have a tremendous amount of empathy for his patients. When I cried in the office after he told me he suspected endometriosis, he let me cry and didn't rush me at all. In fact, he seemed to be hurting with me. When he told us that our embryos tested as chromosomally abnormal, he told us "I know this is difficult news. I know it can feel like a miscarriage." He's honestly spent as much as 40 minutes with me, explaining to me his opinions and answering all of my questions. While he is wonderful in so many ways, and while he is the only doctor to have discovered my endometriosis despite years of doctors visits explaining my pain, I do sometimes feel like a number when I am in an IVF cycle. The main reason for this is because they do batching. I prefer to start an IVF cycle when my body is ready for it, not to have my cycle synchronized with other patients' cycles.
Describe the protocols Christopher Lipari used in your cycles at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We used the antagonist protocol for the first two IVF cycles. Both cycles used 225 Follistim and 75 Menopur. We triggered too late during my first IVF cycle (one of my eggs was "hard boiled") so we triggered earlier for my second IVF cycle. Because of my diminished ovarian reserve, we got three Day 5 embryos between both cycles.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Brittany)
Brittany is patient, well organized, and a great communicator. She is always pleasant to interact with, and she answers my questions very quickly. She makes me feel like a human, and it's clear that she wants treatment to work for us. She goes well above and beyond what I would have ever expected from my nurse. She's wonderful.

Dr. Lepari is an excellent doctor with an excellent knowledge of not only infertility but endometriosis. He was the first doctor who has ever diagnosed me with endometriosis in over 23 years of constant complaining to PCP and my GYN about my constant pain, cramps, heavy bleeding with clots, etc. He is also one of the few doctors that do the endometriosis excision surgery in the country.
This is a small office [Jacksonville Center for Repro Med] with about 3 nurses since the main office is in Jacksonville. There is a nurse that meets with you for a while before the doctor comes in who basically talks about the same thing, which seems to take up more time. The nurses are nice but it is hard to reach them by phone.... The appts were between $250-$450 for consults and treatment for mega stims and meds are approx $2,000

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
He is based in Jacksonville most of the time and only in Gainesville twice a month so book appointments in advance.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lepari is very genuine and truly cares about his patients and helping them conceive. He has an incredible bed side manner and speaks to you very soft and kindly, not using jargon and expecting you to know all the ins and outs of infertility. He gives you straight answers and expectations and does not waste money or time when he knows you need a more aggressive treatment.
Describe the protocols Christopher Lipari used in your cycles at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I was put on birth control, a high dose to stop my heavy bleeding that would last over 2 weeks. I have a diminished ovarian reserve due to endometriosis damage and Dr Lepari has planned that we skip mini stims and jump to mega stims injections so we can be more aggressive along with Femera. If that does not work we will have to do IVF. We are trying to save up for the treatment.

Describe your experience with Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
They seem to need someone to be answer the phones like a receptionist as it can be hard to reach them since there is a limited number of staff in Gainesville. The calls flow to Jacksonville if not answered and they aren’t able to answer the questions and refer you back to Gainesville. This may change during stims when you are able to email the nurse etc.

Success w/ Doc Not sure
When we first went, the goal was to find out why we weren’t getting pregnant. He [Dr. Christopher Lipari] assumed I had PCOS given my symptoms. Blood work was done to confirm. He performed a hystoscopy to check to see if tubes were blocked and flush them out, to eliminate that being a factor. Then I was diagnosed with endometriosis, the plan was then to have surgery to scrap it out. We did our first IUI with letrazole, shots and a trigger shot. However I responded to the letrazole well and only had time for the trigger shot. My husband has had multiple SAs and each time they are different and we are not sure why. My husband has been placed on clomid to help increase his testosterone and other hormone levels. He is now only taking half a pill every other day. We are going to be scheduling another mega IUI and then it seems if that fails, the plan will Be IVF.
[Jacksonville Ctr for Repro Med is a] Very good clinic overall. We are pleased with what they’ve done for us this far and can’t wait to see what they can do. We have taken time off here and there for ourselves. The only issues we’ve had is with the person who answers the phone. It seems she sometimes doesn’t understand what we need or are asking... Brittany was very easy to talk to. She is always willing to help in anyway she can. She came in on a Saturday to do my IUI. She is excellent with communication and makes sure we understand everything.
How was your experience with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lipari takes his time with his patients to ensure understanding. He gives you the best options at the time. His communication skills are exceptional and the time spent makes you feel special. When dealing with endometriosis and PCOS , he made sure to explain exactly what they are and how we would treat them. When it came time to have surgery for my endometriosis, he made me feel comfortable, which is hard to do considering I am an ICU nurse.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Be patient. Trust the process.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lipari always takes his time to explain everything to us as a couple. He makes sure to go into detail and not leave anything out. He never seems to be worried about time, or how much time he spends with us. His communication skills are exceptional.

Twice a day until the doctor calls with the results. I have been on the same medication sense I have been with her just because I have good results.

Describe the protocols Barry Ripps used in your cycles at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
After going through all my test results with me, he was very honest and told me it was going to be very difficult for me to get pregnant with my own eggs. He said to get the most out of our treatments for the money we should go straight to IVF. We did a traditional cycle on maxed out doses of menopure and folostem, we did not get any viable eggs. We then went to an antigonist cycle where I got 5 eggs, 4 fertilized, 1 made it to day 5 that resulted in a chemical pregnancy. I then chose to move to donor eggs. I am currently 5 weeks pregnant.

She [Dr. Sarah Paschall] was a very caring and understanding woman she listened to our concerns and Goals. She told us about all the processes and any complications we might face. She never rushed us through an appointment. I truly felt like I was in excellent hands...I got to work with her and her nurse practitioner very closely. They explained everything to me. About what to expect, how the tests work, how the procedures would work once we start. They explained everything to my husband and I in a way that made us feel like they cared and that it wasn’t just about money or a number. They seem to genuinely care. Also every time I called I was able to speak to them personally.
I met multiple nurses and receptionist during our many visits [to Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine]. But they were all very caring and compassionate...we did a clomid treatment cycle which costed us 600$. The next one up costed 800$ which included injections...We used the Gainesville office, which is there smaller branch office. The only problems we had with using this clinic is that for one or two tests we had to go to the main office in Jacksonville which was over two hours away from out home. This was the only dislike with them. I have loved every part of their clinic besides that.

She [Melissa Yates] was thorough in the diagnostic testing but she was pushy about ivf. She did find out why I couldn't conceive when my gynecologist could not. She seemed to care but still was pushing ivf and when I told her I was seeking a cheaper clinic she tried to change my mind by saying cheaper doesn't mean better.... I only had a laparoscopy and tube removal with her. Couldn't afford further treatment.
Since they [Jacksonville Center Reproductive Med- Gaines] had a few locations and I went to the local, satellite office, it was a bit confusing and strange. Everyone was nice and polite and it was very clean there. I enjoyed going and when I had tests done they were pain free.... The nurse at the Gainesville location was amazing and I loved her so much. She made me feel good.

Dr Lipari is very compassionate but not unrealistic. He would let us know if we needed a different treatment based on blood work and tests. He never moved forward with a treatment without asking us first which I really appreciated. We felt very safe with trusting him in this very delicate journey. We felt like he heard us and finally we were able to get some answers to issues we had been wondering about.
Because this is a multi-clinic clinic, the main [Jacksonville Center for RM] clinic is in Jacksonville, be prepared for some communication issues between your clinic and the main clinic...Don’t be afraid to call and ask questions especially if you need things explained in more depth. Everyone is accommodating and there to help you through this
How was your experience with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Lipari is very compassionate but not unrealistic. He would let us know if we needed a different treatment based on blood work and tests. He never moved forward with a treatment without asking us first which I really appreciated. We felt very safe with trusting him in this very delicate journey. We felt like he heard us and finally we were able to get some answers to issues we had been wondering about.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Because they are a very busy team, don’t set your expectations to think you’re going to see your specific Dr every single time. A lot of appointments were done via TeleHealth and they’re not always going to be with your specific Dr. But that never bothered us.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
I always felt like I was being heard and that my concerns were important. I also appreciate so much having everything explained in depth as the process went on. Can I also say that it was nice having everything explained in a way we could understand. We’re not all Drs so sometimes I find it’s hard to follow what’s being said if you don’t know all the terms. I always have felt like they would make sure and take the time to explain everything and give us time to ask our questions.
Describe the protocols Christopher Lipari used in your cycles at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
At the start of this journey our protocol looked different. A different treatment plan was discussed at first in moving forward. After all the testing both my husband and I went through it was then recommended we go a different route. Dr Lipari initially thought we’d only need ovulation therapy but again after testing and blood work results came back, he concluded IVF would be our best route. He didn’t want us spending even more money on different treatments that might not give us the results we want and instead go for the big treatment. He didn’t want us wasting time if he knew those other options weren’t going to result in a successful outcome. Again, something we really appreciated.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Terri Bishop )
Terri won’t BS you(if I can say that) She will tell it like it is but in a southern mom type of way. She cares about her patients and the care they’re getting from the clinic. The other nurses we’ve been in contact with during this have all been incredible and we felt very comfortable with everyone.
Describe your experience with Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Because this is a multi-clinic clinic, the main clinic is in Jacksonville, be prepared for some communication issues between your clinic and the main clinic, if you don’t live in Jacksonville and have to use either of the other clinics. There have been a couple times where there was just some miscommunication between clinics, either regarding billing or treatment. Don’t be afraid to call and ask questions especially if you need things explained in more depth. Everyone is accommodating and there to help you through this. Just have patience and be a kind human, they know this is a delicate time for you.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Medication costs is separate from any actual procedure. Not all, if any insurance companies cover fertility treatments so be prepared to spend a lot of money. Sadly, the cost we had been quoted in December had doubled since the new year and we weren’t made aware of that fact until the day before our full amount was due. That caused some extreme stress on us both mentally and financially. So we ended up having to pay double then the amount we had been previously quoted.

He recommended me the high fat high protein low carbohydrate diet since I am glucose intolerant...[Dr. Fox] is always willing to listen and understand where I am coming from and actually hears what I am wanting. He is an amazing doctor!! His surgery was very successful and it turned out that I had endometriosis, fibroids and cysts and he got all of that taken out. He strongly believed in me that I was capable of conceiving on my own with out IUI or IVF which was a huge relief since our insurance doesn't cover IUI or IVF.
[the Jacksonville Center nurse] has been very good at communicating and keeping in touch with me throughout this whole experience...They are always so organized and prompt. I have never had to wait over an hour for any of my visits I have been to. During treatment cycles, there is always a emergency nurse line and they are so helpful. knowing a doctor is on call 24/7 gave me a great sense of relief as well since some of the treatment was a first time for us and we both had alot of questions and uncertainty.
How was your experience with Michael Fox at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Fox at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Understand what you and your partner want and be clear on that and explain to him your expectations, frustrations, and worries. He will definitely take that into account. He will not strongly suggest IUI or IVF if it is not necessary like other doctors I have seen and will try to get to the core reason of the infertility. just amazing!!!!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Fox at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
He was the only doctor who believed me when I said I think I have endometriosis and performed surgery ASAP. I have never felt so heard and understood until I met him.
Describe the protocols Michael Fox used in your cycles at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
He recommended me the high fat high protein low carbohydrate diet since I am glucose intolerant. When I followed that for 2 months, I was able to conceive naturally with no treatment. That ended in a miscarriage but became a tremendous encouragement for the 2 of us to know that we CAN get pregnant!!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Christine )
She has been very good at communicating and keeping in touch with me throughout this whole experience. Whenever I have a question, I would email or call her and she will definitely get back to me. When I had the miscarriage, she was so kind and empathetic. I really appreciate her professionalism and how kind she is.
Describe your experience with Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
I don't think it is the clinics fault but I live 2.5 hours away and it is a lot of driving. I have nothing negative to say. They are always so organized and prompt. I have never had to wait over an hour for any of my visits I have been to. During treatment cycles, there is always a emergency nurse line and they are so helpful. knowing a doctor is on call 24/7 gave me a great sense of relief as well since some of the treatment was a first time for us and we both had alot of questions and uncertainty.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Fox at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
I have not had to pay anything else other than copay for medications for ovulation induction cycle.

The preference was a single embryo transfer and I agreed...Dr. Lipari took the time to walk me through everything and was caring throughout my cycle...We did diagnostic testing which included several ultrasounds, like an hysteroscopy and mapping out where my fibroids were...My cycle failed and the options were discussed..
My [Jacksonville Center] nurse was excellent and made time to answer my questions and help me figure out the injections. During a visit she gave me a step by step instruction on how to do it...the cycle, meds, and a co-pay for ultrasound. The cycle was about $9000...The strengths of the clinic are organized, clean, and pleasant staff. The weakness, if you can call it a weakness, is that they can get busy. Although, not too busy to answer questions and concerns.
How was your experience with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lipari took the time to walk me through everything and was caring throughout my cycle. I appreciated the care and concern everyone at the clinic treated me with. While, I was disappointed in my failed cycle, I'm convinced that they can and will do all they can to help me become a mother.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Be truthful and honest in what you want.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
They took time to answer all my questions, hear my concerns, and check on me after my cycle failed. They took care of me well.
Describe the protocols Christopher Lipari used in your cycles at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We did diagnostic testing which included several ultrasounds, like an hysteroscopy and mapping out where my fibroids were. The injections included Menopur, Follistim, Ganirellx, and the trigger shot. In addition, estrogen vaginally. All.in preparation of the egg retrieval. The estrogen helped my follicles grow because they were growing slowly. My cycle failed and the options were discussed. I could do another cycle or have surgery to remove the fibroids and any endometriosis. Due to financial difficulties, I choose to do surgery to remove the fibroids and endometriosis so that when I can afford to do another cycle, my uterus is optimal. My surgery successfully resulted in 16 fibroids removed and endometriosis from the bladder, uterine lining, and right fallopian tube.

Dr. Paschall has been empathetic, patient, and thorough from our initial consult. After seeing multiple doctors with minimal relief she finally helped be understand my condition and treated it. Endometriosis is often over looked and I felt frustrated prior to seeing Dr. Paschall but she has been so reassuring, thorough and supportive not only with my excision surgery but also as I approach going through fertility treatment
The strengths [Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine] are the medical staff and the compassion and care they provide. The weaknesses are the billing and working with insurances. I have had to make multiple calls to my insurance due to delayed submission or billing problems...I always feel as though Dr. Paschall gives me her full attention. She always follows through with what we discuss during my consult and she has a full understanding of my case and history every time I talk with her.

[Dr. Lipari] knows everything there is to know about treating endometriosis and all of the other reproductive issues I was dealing with. He's always been very patient and relatable and willing to help any way possible to get me where I wanted to be. Highly highly recommend him and couldn't be happier with my experience and treatment plan from him...
Some of the [Jacksonville Center] nurses were amazing to work with in person, very knowledgeable, helpful, and compassionate. Others seemed to not care at all and were very unprofessional...The clinic was clean and well kept, very calming atmosphere. Weakness lies with the front desk staff in my opinion. They could definitely work on communication or maybe they need more in depth training because they were never helpful for me unfortunately and I have been in contact regularly with them for the last year and a half
How was your experience with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
I am so grateful to have found Dr. Lipari, I have had 2 surgeries with him now and I absolutely love working with him. He knows everything there is to know about treating endometriosis and all of the other reproductive issues I was dealing with. He's always been very patient and relatable and willing to help any way possible to get me where I wanted to be. Highly highly recommend him and couldn't be happier with my experience and treatment plan from him.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Write down any questions you have prior to meeting with him or the nurses. Keep calling if you don't get through to who you need to speak with, staff is not the most attentive and probably won't get back to you in a timely manner.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lipari is so sweet and caring, always took the time to answer questions and put our minds at ease.
Describe the protocols Christopher Lipari used in your cycles at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I had excision surgery for endometriosis, during surgery, he unblocked my tubes, fixed the septum in my uterus (heat shaped uterus), and removed a few cysts. After surgery, during recover I was given Provera to induce my period (which were typically very irregular) and ever since then, about a year and a half later I am still having a regular period. My husband and I were very excited to start trying for our first baby once I was fully recovered.. we did 2 rounds of Letrozole with timed intercourse and hcg injection, with no luck unfortunately.. but after continued pelvic pain post-op we decided to put that on hold. I was then diagnosed with 2 hernias and just had my second surgery with Dr. Lipari to get them fixed and to make sure nothing else was going on in there to cause me any more discomfort. Both surgeries went great, and recovery was a little difficult, but we'll worth it.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
The nursing staff is very hit and miss. Some of the nurses were amazing to work with in person, very knowledgeable, helpful, and compassionate. Others seemed to not care at all and were very unprofessional. Getting ahold of a nurse is almost impossible, regardless of which one you are trying to reach, leaving a message for them to return a call is absolutely useless. Emailing is not much better, but I do feel like I was able to get through a bit easier with questions that way and he's something back. None of the front desk staff knows what's going on, or who to transfer you to for certain issues, which just adds to the chaos. I did have great experiences with Alexis and Shannon I believe.
Describe your experience with Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
The clinic was clean and well kept, very calming atmosphere. Weakness lies with the front desk staff in my opinion. They could definitely work on communication or maybe they need more in depth training because they were never helpful for me unfortunately and I have been in contact regularly with them for the last year and a half. Their strength is that they work for some really amazing doctors, but I wish the staff held themselves to a higher standard to reflect the amazing work done here. They can really make the experience negative, which is so sad to me because the doctors and patients deserve better from them.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Everything was covered through our insurance, I think the most we had to pay was about $50 per cycle of Letrozole and of course travel as we lived 2 hours from the clinic.
What specific things went wrong at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
  • Lost paperwork
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
I have had many instances of calling, or emailing multiple times, leaving messages and never hearing back in about important questions I had regarding my recovery from surgery and fertility treatments. They have lost my file twice and had to go track it down after it was misplaced. I was supposed to get started with pelvic floor therapy after my first surgery and continued pelvic pain, and I was told 4 times they would be giving me a call back with an appointment over the course of 2 months, I never got an appointment, I would call every single week about it. It's near impossible to get a hold of anyone to help and even in the off chance you're able to speak with someone, they transfer you multiple times and no one can seem to help or figure out what's going on or what to do to fix it. I have never had a bad experience with Dr. Lipari directly, I think he is absolutely wonderful and a very talented surgeon, but his staff is another story.

Since this was the last IVF cycle that my husband and I were going to do, and given my age (40) and my previous failed cycles and many abnormal PGS results, we wanted to transfer two of our untested embryos. Dr. Lipari was supportive of this...he was always prepped on our status. His manner was compassionate and optimistic, although he didn't sugar coat things.
our IVF cycle (retrieval and fresh transfer) was about $9000. Not including medications. I believe our frozen transfer was an additional $2800...This resulted in 9 eggs, 8 that fertilized, 2 day 5 blastocysts and 2 day 6 blastocysts...She [our Jacksonville Center nurse] took a personal interest in our care, was extremely compassionate and accessible. After feeling like just a number at our first clinic, the difference was night and day.
How was your experience with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lipari has a warm and calm demeanor. He was very knowledgeable about endometriosis, which is one of the reasons we chose to see him. Knowing this was to be our last try at IVF (after three failed cycles at another clinic) he offered a good balance of hope and realism. I felt like we were in good hands.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
We asked him if there was anything we could do differently after he reviewed our previous cycles from our first clinic. He came up with several ideas, including priming with human growth hormone for several months to improve my egg quality. Though this extended the treatment time, I feel it may have been the factor that made the difference for us. So don't be afraid to ask for out of the box thinking.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
We had most of our appointments at the Panama City branch (ARS) and given the small office, we felt very comfortable and known. When Dr. Lipari visited from Jacksonville, he was always prepped on our status. His manner was compassionate and optimistic, although he didn't sugar coat things.
Describe the protocols Christopher Lipari used in your cycles at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We primed with HGH (Omnitrope for about two months) prior to retrieval to help with egg quality. The stimulation protocol was a low dose of Follistim and Menopur (75iu of each except for day 1 which was 150iu follistim.) The goal was egg quality over quantity and since I had responded pretty well in my previous cycles at another clinic, Dr. Lipari felt confident that low dose was the way to go. This resulted in 9 eggs, 8 that fertilized, 2 day 5 blastocysts and 2 day 6 blastocysts. We did a day 5 transfer of the two day 5 embryos, which resulted in a twin pregnancy, but sadly I miscarried at 9 weeks. Several months later we prepped for an FET of our two remaining day 6 embryos. I took birth control, then Lupron, adding in estrogen and progesterone in oil injections. Amazingly, both embryos implanted and we were blessed with twin girls after a four year struggle to conceive! Details that I feel contributed to our success - -Priming with HGH for egg quality. -Biopsy for endometritis before transfer. I did have it and did a round of antibiotics. -Adding in Lupron before transfer to suppress my cycle. -Continuing our progesterone injections through week 11 of pregnancy. Longer than necessary but just to be safe.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Terri Bishop)
Terri Bishop, the nurse practitioner at the Panama City office was the person who saw us at every appointment. She was an absolute God-send. I cannot say enough good things about her! She took a personal interest in our care, was extremely compassionate and accessible. After feeling like just a number at our first clinic, the difference was night and day. She is hands down the best health care provider I've ever dealt with.
Describe your experience with Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Good communication was a strength that I appreciated. Although the majority of our appointments were at the small Panama City office, all of my appointments and interactions with the larger Jacksonville office were met with good communication as well. I always got a return call, and never felt like I was chasing someone down to answer a question. Another thing that was important to me was that the cost of IVF with JCRM was considerably lower than the first clinic I worked with!

My doctor [Dr. Lipari] never really mentioned using more than one embryo at a time. I think we were already on the same page as a given that we would transfer one healthy pgs tested embryo...He was very personable and flex with my husband's male fertility issues. He always spent as much time as I needed during our appointments to go over concerns/questions. He was also very knowledgeable...
Nurses [at JCRM] were prompt and usually never had delays getting seen for appointments. Seemed to be very knowledgable and available by email or phone for any questions. My care coordinator, Kaysi is a sweetheart and very helpful... I think one thing they need to communicate better initially is that JCRM has a calendar schedule for retrievals and transfers...JCRM is a very friendly atmosphere. I liked that it had pictures of the doctor's families and patient's baby pictures decorating the office. It has one location and is very central in Jacksonville
How was your experience with Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine?
I felt like I was more than a number at JCRM. Dr. Lipari took his time to help answer my questions and ease my worries. I was one very anxious patient. He has a lot of knowledge and experience and it shows.

Describe the protocols Christopher Lipari used in your cycles at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I was on a medication for 2 IVF retrievals. I feel like the medicine and timing of everything was standard, nothing special or out of the ordinary. I had 19 mature eggs from my first retrieval, 15 fertilized with ICSI. Only 4 made it to blastocyst stage. I was devastated by how much the numbers dropped. I froze all and had pgs testing done (decided upon before cycle started) which showed 3 healthy embryos - all girls. I really wanted at least one boy so I could give my son (currently 4 1/2) a brother one day. I decided to do another retrieval the next possible cycle and this time and only 9 mature eggs were retrieved. 8 fertilized and 3 made it to blastocyst stage. PGS testing revealed I had 2 healthy boy embryos. I couldn't believe my luck. Both unhealthy embryos were girls. I asked about the use of HGH to improve egg quality and ERA, but neither were recommended for me by the Dr. or nursing staff.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Kaysi)
Nurses were prompt and usually never had delays getting seen for appointments. Seemed to be very knowledgable and available by email or phone for any questions. My care coordinator, Kaysi is a sweetheart and very helpful.
Describe your experience with Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
JCRM is a very friendly atmosphere. I liked that it had pictures of the doctor's families and patient's baby pictures decorating the office. It has one location and is very central in Jacksonville. I think one thing they need to communicate better initially is that JCRM has a calendar schedule for retrievals and transfers. That it's not based on when you're ready in your cycle. Therefore, you will have a 2 month wait in-between retrieval and frozen transfer or between retrievals. They only do retrievals one week of the month and transfers another week of the month so weeks that you are waiting, you are taking extra birth control until you are ready to start your medicine. Just an FYI so you know what to expect.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christopher Lipari at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Consultation and Ultrasounds - $10 copay each visit with insurance. IVF meds - $4,000 (x2 retrievals) Insurance didn't cover any IVF procedure or medicine. IVF meds for transfer - $1,000 Hysteroscopy - $10 (covered with insurance) IVF retrieval procedure - $8,500 (×2) PGS testing - $2,500 (x2) Frozen Transfer- $1,700 (thank goodness 1 successful transfer so far).
Describe Christopher Lipari's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
My doctor never really mentioned using more than one embryo at a time. I think we were already on the same page as a given that we would transfer one healthy pgs tested embryo.

Describe your experience with Jacksonville Center for Reproductive Medicine.
After your first appointment You will have to wait in the waiting room to be called and might take some time even if you have a set appointment. You will not see the doctor in every appointment, usually you will see your doctor on the first appointment and every new cycle. What i like about JCRM is that they’re always updated with the latest on medications and treatment related to fertility for specific people with different needs.
