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.

I had a laparoscopy for stage 4 endometriosis which was about $25k (billed to insurance) for Dr. Kaldas and about $25k to the hospital (billed to insurance). I have had an HSG test, which after insurance, was about $1,500.
How was your experience with Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?
Dr. Kaldas has been such a great doctor. He has done necessary steps in our fertility journey that have led to answers to why we aren't getting pregnant and I appreciate that. I think he values his knowledge and enjoys sharing this with his patients. I have appreciated this as I like to know all the information I can! He has set up timelines and plans as to what the next steps in our journey will be, which I appreciate being a planner.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?
Be open and ask a lot of questions. He wants to share his knowledge so ask away!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?
Dr. Kaldas has always shown interest in what I am saying. He provides his insight in what he is thinking on a diagnosis which has generally been fairly in line with the actual diagnosis (pelvic exam thought I had stage 2-3 endometriosis and after laparoscopy surgery, it was stage 4). He has spent valuable time showing me pictures from my surgery as well as medical evidence from textbooks. In the many appointments I have had with Dr. Kaldas, I have felt that he treats his patients with a lot of respect.
Describe the protocols Rami Kaldas used in your cycles at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy and their degree of success.
During my first appointment with Dr. Kaldas, we discussed and agreed that I had endometriosis. Based on a pelvic exam, he figured it was likely stage 2 or 3. Within a month of my first appointment, we scheduled laparoscopy surgery to remove the endometriosis. After the surgery, it was determined to be stage 4. Within 3 months we were able to conceive on our own. Dr. Kaldas was very helpful easing our nervousness. At 12 weeks, we miscarried our baby. Dr. Kaldas was very compassionate during this time as we had to have a D&C. Dr. Kaldas gave us another 5 months to try on our own naturally before going in again. In January 2020, I went in again which he decided to have an HSG test and a semen analysis. The HSG test (which I had also had one done during my laparoscopy surgery and showed that one tube had been blocked but Dr. Kaldas had said this was likely due to surgery) showed both tubes were open. The semen analysis is TBD due to COVID-19. In May 2020, we are expected to be prescribed clomid along with a trigger shot. I am not sure on the dosage. His plan, in addition to ours, is to try and get us pregnant as soon as possible.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy.
I have enjoyed the nursing staff that I have met at the Kaldas Center. I appreciate how helpful they all are and compassionate they were when we suffered our miscarriage.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy.
In general, an office visit, after applying insurance, has been just under $300. I had a laparoscopy for stage 4 endometriosis which was about $25k (billed to insurance) for Dr. Kaldas and about $25k to the hospital (billed to insurance). I have had an HSG test, which after insurance, was about $1,500. I cannot speak for medications (i.e. clomid, trigger shot) as I have not started these yet.

How was your experience with Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?
The moment I walked in the door I got to choose which doctor I had. That being said I did at times have the other doctors in the clinic but for the most part Dr. Kaldas lead my treatment plan. Dr. Kaldas treats each person as a person and not a number. Dr. Kaldas explains things very thoroughly which is much appreciated especially when treatments can become very complicated. Dr. Kaldas suggest treatment changes or increased treatments but ultimately leaves it up to the patient on what the patient is ready for or most comfortable with moving forward. Overall the care is the patients decision and Dr. Kaldas is there to support his patients in anyway possible to achieve the ultimate goal of pregnancy.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?
Ask a lot of questions as Dr. Kaldas may not go into great deal at first but will definitely explain anything if your unsure at first with what the plan is and means going forward.

Dr. Kaldas treats every person who walks in the door as an individual and everyone’s situation is unique. Dr. Kaldas shows empathy and care with every visit.
Describe the protocols Rami Kaldas used in your cycles at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy and their degree of success.
When I first started my treatments it was checking all things such as blood work, hormone levels, reproductive system with ultrasound. They found cysts and scar tissue on my ovaries which they right away scheduled a laparoscopic surgery to remove that in order to go forward with treatment. Then after that procedure they started me on metphormin. Then I’d do several rounds with clomid or letrozole. That wasn’t working so we moved onto clomid, progesterone and timed intercourse. Than front here clomid, trigger shot and timed intercourse which ultimately lead to my pregnancy but ended in a fetal demise due to chromosomal disorder. After that when we started treatments back up the clinic tried the clomid, trigger shot with timed intercourse for three rounds and those didn’t work. We then moved onto clomid, trigger shot, more ultra sounds, and IUI. That we did for two rounds with no success. The last round we did was a combo cycle where I was put on clomid, follastym, increased ultra sounds, IUI, and progesterone. Which resulted in an early miscarriage.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy.
The nursing staff at my clinic are undoubtedly amazing. They really feel and empathize with you along the journey. They remember you without looking at your records. They answer any questions you have and never make you feel incompetent when asking questions over again or calling and asking about a symptom that may be nothing at all but seems big or strange at the time to you.
Describe your experience with Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy.
The Kaldas Center has several strengths. Communication is amazing within the clinic. Everyone is on the same page which speaks volumes for a clinic. Everyone is welcoming, nice and caring. The facility is clean and well kept. Questions are asked and answered with ease and reassurance. If I had to state a weakness the only one I can think of is that since they are a clinic on its own when you need blood work or surgery you have to go to the hospital setting across town in order to do so which can be inconvenient at times.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy.
The last cycle we did with the trigger, clomid, ultrasounds, follastym, and progesterone cost around $2,300.

How was your experience with Pengfei Wang at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?
As previously mentioned, Dr. Wang was compassionate and knowledgeable. I felt that I was in great care when I met him. I previously had an endometriosis removal surgery, but was seeking a specialist. I felt the surgery was not successful and the other doctor I saw gave up on me. When I sent my medical records to Dr. Wang he read it multiple times (I truly believe this), and he wishes when they looked inside me at my first surgery that they would have stopped the surgery and referred me to him. I honestly wish that happened, but I later had to seek our Dr. Wang and he performed a second surgery within 18 months of the first. He is a wonderful doctor that cares about his patients.

He definitely meets you where you are at as far as how aggressive you want to get with treatment, etc. while also cautioning on the risks and providing recommendations. He has the interest of his patients at the forefront. ... He is all business, meaning he isn't very personable, however I'd take professionalism and expertise over being personable anytime. He is absolutely great. ... He is beyond knowledgeable in this field, and his experience in the field and his successes are really comforting
The Kaldas Center has an excellent staff - from the girl at the front desk to the ultrasound techs that scan me to the nurses who meet with me afterwards. The staff is amazing - they know me by name, call to check in with me and see how I'm doing, and they are sensitive to the disappointments we've experienced with not being able to conceive. They are also very current on where I am at in this journey, which makes it so much easier to meet with them.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?
Have an idea of what your limits are - he will assist in any way he can based on how aggressive you want to approach fertility. Research treatment options, etc. and be prepared to talk to him about what you view this journey to be and how aggressive you want to approach it. Do you want to do IUI right away, pills, injectables, etc.? He's great at trying new approaches when one doesn't work, so be prepared on what you are willing to do.

Describe the protocols Rami Kaldas used in your cycles at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy and their degree of success.
At our initial visit, he did an evaluation and blood tests to understand what our starting point was. From there, we discovered I had polycystic ovaries. We started on metformin (from 1 pill a day up to 3 pills a day, currently) and clomid (1 pill a day to 2 pills a day, currently, for cycle days 3-7) and progesterone 3 days after ovulation for 3 cycles. When that didn't work, we started using the ovadril trigger shot to force ovulation. We did one month of that, along with the metformin, clomid, and progesterone. When that didn't work, we started doing injections with follistim. I've done 3 cycles with follistim (along with metformin, clomid, & projesterone) and a trigger shot and an IUI. This is my 3rd cycle with follisitim, clomid, progesterone, and metformin, while also doing the trigger shot and IUI. For the follistim, this cycle I did 4 days with 225 IU.

They offer a lot of advice and truly care about the emotions of this entire process. They have also called to check up on me during cycles, which was amazing. They also know us by name and are extremely helpful.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy.

How was your experience with Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?
Dr Kaldas does not have good bed side manner. We were moving forward to discuss IUI- when he finally tested my husband. He walked in and said - "well sorry to say youll likely never have biological children together. You can do IVF - it's simply look at it as buying a nice used car... Or you can adopt". Then left us with the news my husband had Azoospermia which he diagnosed with 1 semen sample. When I went back to him about my endometriosis pain few months later he asked my why we hadnt gone to IVF clinic yet - and I explained we needed time to process. He then said "you're waisting time this will be the only way you achieve pregnancy". When I got a second opinion - she greatly disagreed. Thinking that main cause of not getting pregnant was my husband's sperm count all along.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?
Go in prepared to ask questions. Advocate for yourself. Yes there is high success. But it's high success because they tell every patient to do IVF. With out proper work ups. I had wasted months of money, time and drugs when it could have been avoided with the proper care. However, I was seeing a partner at Kaldas practice who was later let go and I was transfers to kaldas - he could still see the appropriate work up wasn't done.

Dr. Kaldas is sensitive, intelligent and has such a passion for what he does. I recommend everyone to him and trust him with mine and my babies life!... We started with some fertility testing. Lab work, HSG, ultrasounds. Found endometriosis, cysts, uterine fibroids and a heart shaped uterus. Scheduled surgery to get everything taken care of and if I wasn't pregnant 6 months after surgery we were going to start clomid and go from there. The clomid was never needed.
They all resemble Kaldas very well. They show compassion and concern. Along with being very personable.... Strengths would be compassion and all so personable. From the care on the phone, to the receptionist who know you by name, MA's, ultrasound techs to all the doctors. Amazing. No weaknesses that I can think of.... Dr. Kaldas is sensitive, intelligent and has such a passion for what he does. I recommend everyone
How was your experience with Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?
He never turns anyone down, explains everything before you even have a chance to ask the question. He took care of me after trying for a baby and all the testing. Emergency surgery for an ectopic pregnancy, along with fertility surgery to take care of endometriosis, cysts, fibroids and heart shaped uterus. Then my first pregnancy my water broke at 27 weeks pregnant, scariest time of my life. Every time he came in to round on me he told me of a success story of someone similar or worse off than myself. 2nd pregnancy found incompetent cervix, had an emergency cerclage placed at 18 weeks. Dr. Kaldas always is so confident in his decisions, do not have enough good things to say about this man.

We were very scared and discouraged at the point in our journey that we met Dr. Kaldas.

They're incredibly timely with results and return phone calls. Extremely clean and state of the art facility [Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, and Pregnancy. Allowed me to book out entire future visit plan so I'd be sure to have Dr. Kaldas for all of my visits. Very easy to get to--off 41 close to the mall in Appleton. Does his surgeries and deliveries at Theda Care in Neenah which is comforting because they have a NICU.... My treatments we covered because we were coded as habitual aborters through insurance after our 3 documented miscarriages.

We were very scared and discouraged at the point in our journey that we met Dr. Kaldas. I had 3 miscarriages including 1 D&C at this point and have had years of disappointment and many many months of fertility medication. Dr Kaldas was the most kind, companionate, smart, confident Dr we had ever met. He spent 30-45 minutes just talking to us about our journey, telling us about experiences in his career, what probable causes could be and reassuring us that he will come to a conclusion and will deliver us a baby in our future. Within 2 minutes of a pelvic exam he diagnosed me with endometriosis, ran additional blood to gain more insight than the fertility blood tests results that we had previously to provide him. From the surgery to the birth of our daughter and every single biweekly visit inbetween Dr. Kaldas was unwavering in his approach and expertise. I've referred SEVERAL friends, family, & complete strangers to him and have seen so many of them turn into overjoyed first time parents shortly after. He is absolutely wonderful and I am and will continue to see him for all future pregnancies. I'm excited for him to deliver our second child in march!

He was the most patient, caring, confident doctor of the 4 we have seen. He NEVER rushed a visit and he always explained everything in a way that my husband and I could understand. He told us the only way he wouldn't be delivering our baby was if he was out of the country...and he DID deliver our miracle rainbow.

Dr. Menya is easy to work with. He listens to me and asks questions to understand. I feel very comfortable with him and always leave the office with all my questions answered.... I was nervous to meet a male doctor but after our first meeting I knew he was the doctor I wanted. He felt I had PCOS and explained what it presented like in my body, including drawing pictures of what a hormone cycle would look like. We moved on to tests to confirm.
Beautiful office [Kaldas Ctr] in a nice area. Parking is great. Fast check ins. Always has cookies and coffee or teas available. Large waiting room with bench seating. Patient rooms are comfortable and have a table and chairs for discussion.... Nurses would follow up after meeting with Dr Menya to follow up and give a brief overview of what Dr Menya had said or prescribed or ordered and allow for any other questions to be answered. Nurses hace also provided me with pamphlets of information for IVF and recommendations for urologist for my husbands care.

Took his [Dr. Rami Kaldas] time to thoroughly go over each step of the way. Never felt rushed or as if we were just a number. Bedside manners are amazing!!!...Upbeat, passionate, friendly, down to earth, positive, honest, values his patient relationship..... Our previous OBGYN we were seeing sore up and down I didn't have endometriosis. At our consult with Dr. Kaldas he dx me with endometriosis, had surgery and was pregnant 2 months later!
[Kaldas Center for Fertility is a] Brand new facility site with spacious rooms. Everyone to even the front desk staff is so welcoming each and every visit.

Dr. Kaldas was the first doctor who treated me like i deserved to be able to get pregnant even though I am overweight.... I did 2 cycles on Clomid with monitoring and iui, 1 cycle on femara with monitoring and iui, and 1 on gonal-f with monitoring and iui. He also prescribed metformin and prednisone, and was comfortable with my doing a keto diet, yoga and acupuncture.
Strength of the clinic [Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, and Pregnancy] is the staff and the atmosphere. It has a very peaceful, spa-like waiting room, stocked with water, keurig and cookies. Weakness is the cost and the financial department. It was more difficult than it should be to get proper records for FSA and tax purposes.... There is one main fertility nurse, Kate, who I spoke to for all my medication and next steps. She was incredibly sensitive and easy to work with. I can't say enough about her! There are also other nurses who handle all the temperature checks/ weight checks, etc. They were also fabulous!
How was your experience with Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?

Dr. Kaldas is an amazing doctor. He is very informative and listens to what you have to say. He is one of the best that I’ve seen. He also performed my excision of stage IV endometriosis, and was wonderful about explaining the procedure and setting my expectations. He was good about setting up a plan that worked for me, and him...Take notes if possible, or bring someone with to your appointments. He provides a lot of information, and sometimes it’s a little overwhelming.
I think they [Kaldas Center] are overall a wonderful clinic, they are good about communicating with you and always friendly. The one thing I would like to see is a change in how they billing works. It is very old school, and would be much easier if they would move to an online system...Nurse Kate is fantastic. She was so on top of everything and would usually know my treatment plan without having to look at every note in my chart. I really enjoyed working with her.

ASK Questions, he [Dr. Kaldas] is always willing to answer them...He started me out with clomid and monitoring. Due to my body not releasing the eggs he always gave me a shot to do so. After two failed rounds of Clomid we moved on to Femera and then Femera with an IUI...I heard many good things before I went to see him for the first time and he met all my expectations and more. I had seen two doctors before him and they stated they couldn't help me due to my weight, and in fact, my weight issues were due to my PCOS. I have since lost 40+ pounds just from medication alone.

Dr. Pengfei Wang was very thorough and kind...he wanted me to give him a full history starting from when I first got my cycles at age 12, all the way through the present. He took notes and he was very professional. He was able to squeeze me in that same day to do an ultrasound in order to properly diagnose me with adenomyosis...offered to do whatever I felt comfortable with as far as proceeding with my fertility treatment.
The front desk staff [at Kaldas Center] is not terribly nice but...dealing with insensitive front desk staff is worth it to me to treat with an excellent doctor who has my best interests in mind....ultrasound tech was also very nice and compassionate...Dr. Wang suggested that we do medicated (clomid/letrozole) cycles and IUI together and he did seem confident that would be successful for us.
How was your experience with Pengfei Wang at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?
Dr. Pengfei Wang is compassionate, caring, very thorough, professional, trustworthy and knowledgeable. I trust him very much with my treatment and all of my options moving forward with fertility treatments. I just wish his office was closer to where I live. I drove over 2 hours to meet him and have a consult and ultrasound and it was worth every minute of round-trip travel. He is a fertility genius.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Pengfei Wang at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?
Dr. Pengfei Wang was very thorough and kind. When I came in to his office, I was one week post laparoscopy and I was confused and didn't know how to proceed following my diagnosis of endometriosis stage one. He was very kind and gentle. He wanted me to give him a full history starting from when I first got my cycles at age 12, all the way through the present. He took notes and he was very professional. He was able to squeeze me in that same day to do an ultrasound in order to properly diagnose me with adenomyosis. He gave me what he felt were our odds for success with trying to conceive. He was honest and very caring. He offered to do whatever I felt comfortable with as far as proceeding with my fertility treatment.
Describe the protocols Pengfei Wang used in your cycles at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy and their degree of success.
Dr. Wang suggested that we do medicated (clomid/letrozole) cycles and IUI together and he did seem confident that would be successful for us. He said with my endometriosis and adenomyosis being "mild" that we are unexplained and we should be able to conceive, it might just take longer. He said he would do whatever path we were most comfortable with.

What specific things went wrong at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy?
  • Lost results
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, & Pregnancy.
The only thing that went wrong was I asked them to please send me my records in the mail on a flash drive. They did so, but the post office lost the flash drive because they mailed it in a regular envelope (with no padding) so the flash drive fell out. It was never found by the post office even though I filed a claim (which was a headache). I called the clinic and asked them to send a new flash drive with my records but to use a padded envelope next time and they told me "we don't have padded envelopes" so I had to request she wrap it up in a few envelopes to protect it. I eventually got my records.
