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.

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.

This [Naval Medical Center] is a military hospital so there are restrictions. Getting into appointments takes a long time. After each cycle, it's not an immediate start for the next cycle takes a few weeks. The medicine is covered and visits as well but the IVF procedure is not covered. So pricing is great here.... They are extremely kind. They are always willing to help and answer questions for me. If i want more detail on something they will get that for me.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Larry Laufer at Naval Medical Center?
I felt like a human during the appointments, the nurses are fantastic and the doctor makes jokes. When he is explaining the treatment that is when I feel a little rushed.

What specific things went wrong at Naval Medical Center?
  • Failed to order appropriate test
How was your experience with Larry Laufer at Naval Medical Center?
Dr. Laufer is great for the most part. He is quick with the ultrasounds, sometimes too quick because i like to see the numbers and talk about it as we go where he likes to wait to talk. Not that big of a deal just different people different preferences. I always have a lot of questions and sometimes i feel he gets a little bothered by asking too many questions but sometimes he doesnt go into as much detail as i would like. They are great about getting me into appointments and they will always bring me back if they have any questions. He always calls with the results and if you want specific numbers you have to ask. He is very funny and loves to make jokes which i like and he always makes my husband feel a little less awkward about being there. Overall, i would say he is great but if you have questions write them down prior because he doesnt ask if you have any questions and rushs through them.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Larry Laufer at Naval Medical Center?
Write your questions down so you aren't feeling pressured to leave after he gives you the treatment. When you go into his office to discuss the next steps I would maybe mention that you have a list of questions so he can shift his focus from the computer to you.
Describe the protocols Larry Laufer used in your cycles at Naval Medical Center and their degree of success.
We used Gonal F, Ovidrel, and Endometrin. They give ultrasounds the beginning of the cycle and after getting blood tests they will adjust your Gonal F dose and when they are ready they will have you come in for follow up ultrasounds. This is so they can see how your eggs are going along. I did IUI and they would have you go in with a full bladder.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Larry Laufer at Naval Medical Center.

The clinic [Naval Medical Center] is great and very easy to find. Sometimes parking is very hard to find. I suggest that if you're new patient, it is best to come there early to give yourself time to find parking. Sometimes there's traffic at the gate to get in. Afternoon appointments are better because there's plenty of parking around that time.... IUI procedure and meds were free. IVF was not free and we had to pay to the one they had contract with but meds were free.

Describe the protocols Larry Laufer used in your cycles at Naval Medical Center and their degree of success.
For IUI I've done gonal f and ovidrel. Most of the time I have to increase and sometimes decrease. I responded great but did not get pregnant. For my 1st IVF cycle, I was on antagonist protocol and had to take gonal f, menopur, ganirelix and ovidrel then patches and progesterone. Dr. Laufer did the retrieval and retrieved 17 eggs, 10 fertilized, got 5 embryos of day 5/day 6. The first transfer (different doctor transferred the embryo), I got positive pregnancy but ended as a chemical pregnancy. For my FET (#2,#3,#4) I used patches and progesterone, but did not get pregnant.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Larry Laufer at Naval Medical Center.
IUI procedure and meds were free. IVF was not free and we had to pay to the one they had contract with but meds were free.
Describe Larry Laufer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Naval Medical Center.
My doctors explained single embryo transfer vs multiple embryo transfer and it depends on your age too.

The staff [at Naval Medical Center- San Diego] is helpful and kind. It's sometimes hard to get someone to answer the phone, but that is only because of how busy the clinic is. Calls are always promptly returned.... The waitlist for IVF is very long however.... This cycle included gonal-F and an Ovidrel trigger shot. I started the cycle after a monitoring sonogram to confirm I did not have any pre-existing issues that would interfere with the cycle. Mid-way through the injections blood work and sonogram were used to monitor progress, the medication doses were adjusted and I was called in again a few days later for a repeat scan.

Describe your experience with Naval Medical Center.
As a military installation, I was pleased to find the care I needed in network. The clinic is very busy but I always felt well taken care of and could get in quickly for follow-up visits as needed. The waitlist for IVF is very long however.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Larry Laufer at Naval Medical Center?
Dr. Laufer has always been very kind while treating me. He returns phone calls promptly to discuss my concerns and was very kind when clinical findings showed a recent miscarriage.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The staff is helpful and kind. It's sometimes hard to get someone to answer the phone, but that is only because of how busy the clinic is. Calls are always promptly returned.
How was your experience with Larry Laufer at Naval Medical Center?
Dr. Laufer is a seasoned doctor with a wealth of knowledge regarding infertility treatment. He has a good bedside manner and thoroughly explained each step of treatment as it came up. When I had concerns, he never made me feel like a burden or a "troublesome" patient, he addressed each concern promptly and ordered appropriate testing to ease my nerves. This was my first cycle taking injectable medication and he took adequate time to explain the process and demonstrate how to administer the injections.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Larry Laufer at Naval Medical Center?
I would recommend him thoroughly. Don't hesitate to ask him questions, he is well prepared to answer them and will do so in a professional and kind manner.

The thing to understand about using this clinic [Naval Medical Center] is that there are many patients, so there is a waitlist for the IVF procedure. The clinic is fantastic about prescribing the medications and then the convenience to pick up the medications immediately onsite.... As is the process with military hospitals, frequently it is a numbers game. I'm happy to be on the waitlist for IVF, meanwhile receiving treatment to try to conceive in the process.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurse that was in the exam room while I had my ultrasound done was blatantly unengaged. She just stood there by the light, even yawning loudly several times. I don't think she even made eye contact once, nor did she ever ask if I was comfortable, or if I needed anything. The front desk nurse, and also the one that explained the processes and the way everything is supposed to work, were all amazing.
How was your experience with Larry Laufer at Naval Medical Center?
Dr. Larry Laufer is very kind and compassionate, and I feel that he is highly knowledable regarding the procedures and medications. I personally know a few people that were able to conceive after having them as their doctor, so that gives me hope. After each visit, he concludes your time there while visiting with you in his office, which is very professional.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Larry Laufer at Naval Medical Center?
Be prepared to ask questions that you want answered. He'll answer them, but if you don't ask, he doesn't always know what you don't tell him you don't know. Many of his patients have been TTC for a long time, and know a great deal about the process, so he doesn't know what questions you have unless you ask.
Describe the protocols Larry Laufer used in your cycles at Naval Medical Center and their degree of success.
So far we have just done one cycle, beginning with blood draw for my AMH levels in June, and a semen analysis a few weeks ago. I had a baseline ultrasound completed several weeks ago, and then a IUI about a week ago. I used Gonal F injections and then a trigger shot the day prior. It's too early to know any results.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Larry Laufer at Naval Medical Center.
The only cost that wasn't covered was the sperm storage and associated fees which was necessary for the IUI procedure, due to my husband being deployed at the time of the procedure.

How was your experience with Larry Laufer at Naval Medical Center?
He is very nice and knowledgeable, however I preferred to see the other doctor in the clinic. It was just a personal preference. Dr Lauffer took the time to write down the list of medications and how they should be taken and at what times. He answered all questions and would call you back personally.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Larry Laufer at Naval Medical Center?
He is not very aggressive, make sure you advocate for yourself.
Describe the protocols Larry Laufer used in your cycles at Naval Medical Center and their degree of success.

Because it’s a military clinic [Naval Medical Center] there is a wait list for new patients and for IVF which is a downside. We were on the wait list for IVF for 8 months and never got called up. But we were still able to do other treatment (IUI) while we waited and thankfully fell pregnant during that time.... Everything was covered under our military insurance that we used... We started with prediagnostic tests and moved on to laparoscopic surgery to clear out my tubes and check for other problems.

We started with prediagnostic tests and moved on to laparoscopic surgery to clear out my tubes and check for other problems. This was successful and we moved right to IUI with medication. We used injections for this because it was similar to the meds used for IVF and there was a chance I’d have to use that. After 5 IUI rounds I became pregnant with a healthy baby girl.
