CDC Success Rates

This is the most recent data from the CDC. The CDC cautions that it should not be used to compare doctors and clinics.

For more information please see our FAQs.

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

They all resemble Kaldas very well. They show compassion and concern. Along with being very personable.
How was your experience with Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, and 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.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, and Pregnancy?
Trust him and let all your anxiety go. Which is much easier said than done, but you are in good hands. Give him time to figure everything out, because he will figure it out.
Describe the protocols Rami Kaldas used in your cycles at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, and Pregnancy and their degree of success.
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.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, and Pregnancy.

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.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, and Pregnancy?
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.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, and Pregnancy. (Assigned nurse: Laura and Kate)
They were very patient, consoling, understanding, and you could tell they had faith in their doctor.
How was your experience with Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, and Pregnancy?
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!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rami Kaldas at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, and Pregnancy?
Be patient!!! He's amazing and very very busy. It may take a little while to get in specifically with him but trust me...it's worth the wait!!!

How was your experience with Donald Menya at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, and Pregnancy?
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. He started me on meds and was always positve that he would help us get pregnant. Follow up appointment are also fantastic, Dr Menya asks thoughtful questions and takes the time to ask more then just medical questions. Dr Menya also diagnosed me with endo and compleated my surgery. From diagnosis to surgery to post surgery Dr Menya and staff was availabe to answer my questions and put me at ease. He is fantastic and I dream of the day he hands me my child.

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!

[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. There have been times when they're running quite a bit behind. However from our own personal experiences I know situations come up. When we had our miscarriage dx in the office, they were so loving and compassionate. No one rushed us out at all. They even sent us a card after calling to check on us a few days later.
