Attention to detail is on a 1 - 10 scale, and is scored based on the rate, and severity, of errors committed by the clinic according to the patients.

For example, a severe error might be failing to inform a patient of critical information, while a small error might be failing to call a patient with results.

CDC Success Rates

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

For more information please see our FAQs.

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

She [Dr. Susan Lobel at Metropolitan Reproductive Medicine] doesnt have a nurse but the nurses at the clinic where the egg retrieval and transfers take place are great...I appreciated the fact that she was a solo practitioner and that she didnt have a nurse. She ran efficiently and on time. Her clinic for the retrieval and transfer was small and it felt like everyone was kind and attentive...She is a solo practitioner and she really takes time and care with each patient. I never waited, she always schedules clients with enough time so that you dont feel rushed, and she truly is invested in her patients.

She [Dr. Susan Lobel] is very knowledgeable, thorough, and spends a lot of time with her patients. She is not alarmist and gives measured medical advice. Because she is a sole practitioner, you get a very personal experience...Dr. Lobel is very quick to return calls and are very on top of each patient's schedule....Her protocol has been three months of letrozole with no other interventions, three months of iui, and then onto ivf. Her rationale seems to be that three months is long enough to get a sense whether this treatment will work for an individual patient, after which it's best to move on to the next intervention. So far, I am on my third month of iui and not yet pregnant.
