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.

Describe your experience with New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
The clinic is wonderful. It’s beautiful and clean. They decorate for holidays, which make it feel more like home. One thing that is sometimes difficult is getting through on the phone if they are busy.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
The office is very busy, but for good reason. Meeting with Dr. Z is like meeting with a life long friend. She (as well as all of the staff-especially the front desk) makes you feel like they are all excited you’re there and that you’re a friend instead of a patient number.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was amazing. They were always welcoming and they were available to answer questions by phone as well as online portal or email. They found answers to your questions if they did not know them right away.
How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Ziegler meets with patients in a cozy office with lots of life in it. She is full of life and spunk. She speaks to you like you’re family and then she even writes down your treatment plan and explanations on a piece of paper for you to take home. It has been a great experience. Once you are on the right path you may not see her every single appointment, but the other staff is just as wonderful. I would recommend her to my friends and I plan to go back.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
I would suggest that you come with your questions written down, because in the heat of the prospective hope and the fact that Dr. Ziegler speaks quickly sometimes the paper with your thoughts on it can help you to not forget anything.
Describe the protocols Robin Poe-Zeigler used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Dr. Ziegler did lots of labs that my regular OBGYN would not do/ didn’t tell me about. She worked from the ground up. Investigated possible reasons for multiple miscarriages and came up with a plan. She removed fibroids and respected my wishes when I did not want to be placed under anesthesia for it. We used timed intercourse and injectable mediciations to sustain the pregnancy.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Although the costs do add up, it was worth it. My insurance covered some things like certain lab work or ultrasounds.

Erica [nurse at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine] was great. She was our main nurse for the transfer cycle. She is knowledgeable, friendly, compassionate and a good communicator. We love seeing and talking to her whenever we have an appointment. Jamia was our main nurse for the egg retrieval. Also super knowledgeable and friendly and went above and beyond to help...Egg Retrieval + PGS Testing was about $12k. Each transfer is about $3.5k-$4k. Paid an additional $3k (after insurance) on medications. PGS testing for the lab was $1600. Labs were through LabCorp which was varied costs depending on the labs needed.

Describe your experience with New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Overall, this clinic offers a lot. There is a lot of experience within the clinic and Dr. Robin is the best doctor I've ever seen. The biggest and only drawback to the clinic that we've experienced is that it is sometimes difficult to get in touch with someone or they may forget to call you back. You have to be persistent with them.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
They are a very busy clinic and sometimes it isn't the easiest to get in touch with them, but everyone is exceptionally kind to us. They've all gotten to know us and take the time to answer our questions. Dr. Robin is so passionate and caring and you can tell that she loves what she does and helping people. We had our initial consult in 2016 and waited 2 years before continuing and she remembered everything about us. When she first laid eyes on us, she shrieked and ran and gave me and my wife a hug and asked us about life before we went into the treatment plan.
Describe your experience with your nurse at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Erica)
Erica was great. She was our main nurse for the transfer cycle. She is knowledgeable, friendly, compassionate and a good communicator. We love seeing and talking to her whenever we have an appointment. Jamia was our main nurse for the egg retrieval. Also super knowledgeable and friendly and went above and beyond to help.
What specific things went wrong at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Lost appointments
How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Robin is a very busy doctor, so you don't get to see her frequently. That is the only drawback. We live four hours away from our clinic and Dr. Robin is why we choose to drive four hours each way for our IVF treatment. She is kind and personable and her love of what she does radiates from her being. She explained everything to us fully and has exceeded my expectations for a doctor. We did not get pregnant on our first try due to an underlying immunology issue with my wife, but are hopeful our next cycle will work with the adjusted protocol. Dr. Robin listened to all of our concerns and worries and gave us her best advice and tweaked our protocol after running extensive tests after our first failure.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Robin is busy. If you have questions, be persistent in calling or emailing because they sometimes forget to answer back.
Describe the protocols Robin Poe-Zeigler used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Retrieval consisted of Menopur, Follistim & Ganirellix. Our first cycle for transfer consisted of Birth Control, Lupron, Doxycycline, Prednisone, Progesterone in Oil. Our second cycle that we are currently in the middle of is the same as above with Lovenox added (due to a clotting disorder found during extensive tests after our fail), and Intralipid infusions (due to elevated levels of Natural Killer cells found during the extensive testing).
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Egg Retrieval + PGS Testing was about $12k. Each transfer is about $3.5k-$4k. Paid an additional $3k (after insurance) on medications. PGS testing for the lab was $1600. Labs were through LabCorp which was varied costs depending on the labs needed.
Describe Robin Poe-Zeigler's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Dr. Robin seemed to lean more toward a single embryo, especially having been PGS tested normal, but was very open to the transfer of two when our first failed given the age of my wife and financial concerns.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Robin genuinely cares about each and every one of her patients. You’re never just a number. She cares about you and your unique situation.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses are mostly compassionate and helpful. However it can be difficult on the telephone to get needed information.
What specific things went wrong at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
  • Failed to call with results
How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Robin offered “new hope” to my husband and I after going down a very difficult and dead end road. She created a new game plan for us and ensured us it was obtainable. She is always positive and cheerful. She takes her time to sit with you and explain your care plan and answer any and all questions.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Have a good support system in place... friends, families, other patients. Consider joining some support groups on Facebook and Dr. Robin’s group... Robin’s Eggs.
Describe the protocols Robin Poe-Zeigler used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I have undergone 3 IUI’s with Dr. Robin. The first two were natural cycles. We attempted a third natural but I did not ovulate. Then we moved on to Femara cycle. We added progesterone injections along with vag. suppositories after Femara IUI due to my low blood levels. However it was not successful as my TWW labs were still too low. We will be adjusting protocol next cycle.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
The first cycles were extremely personalized and we had consultations after every one. The last one was not personalized as well and we have not had a consultation, which is why it’s 4 stars instead of 5.

They are incredible. There is some turnover, and they are sometimes very busy. But they are all good at their jobs.

How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
She is incredible, caring and great at her job. We fully trust her to do all of the medical side of things. Is sometimes too busy to fully be present which is hard. Protocols are sometimes less personalized because she is so rushed and taking on a little too much.

Describe the protocols Robin Poe-Zeigler used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
For an IUI, we tried femara since cookie has not had great success with PCOS. I reacted poorly to femara so we canceled the IUI. we moved on to invocell, she felt as though I was a great candidate. We only had 1 embryo which didn’t implant. We moved on to a full IVF cycle, and kept some embryos as 3 days to see if I didn’t have embryos able to make it to day 5. We transferred 2 day 3 and had more make it to day 5. Our transfer was negative. We did PGS and ERA to see if there were any problems. We also checked on any genetic conditions. We transferred a normal embryo when everything came back okay and had a chemical pregnancy. We used menopur for invocell. We used follistim and menopur for IVF. we used lupron and progesterone as well as estrace, baby aspirin, and prednisone for FETs.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?

She was concerned that my hormone levels were dropping too quickly and were unbalanced overall. She recommended taking estrogen and progesterone during my cycle to help regulate those levels. She was also concerned that I may have endometriosis. She recommend that I have tests done to see if this was the case. We haven’t tried using the medications yet or done the tests because we moved unexpectedly and didn’t want stress to become a factor in our infertility.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
The costs were very reasonable. We did not have health insurance at the time and they came up with a plan for us that would work with our budget.

One time, I sent a question to the staff and received three replies. I also was able to speak with them late one weekend when I had questions about my medications.... The office is more like a spa than a clinic. The decorations and furniture are comforting and clean; it gives a calming feeling during a stressful time.

She goes above and beyond to reach out to make patients feel loved, comfortable, and safe. Dr. Robin presents unintended or poor results, options and treatments is a nurturing and compassionate way.

I loved my care by Dr. Robin, but sadly I could not support going to New Hope because of the treatment I received by many other of her staff.... I loved the care provided by the nurse who did the ultrasounds, but the nurse who was supposed to educate me about my injections was so condescending and seemed frustrated by my questions.... Mostly I was frustrated by the lack of attention the support staff paid to answering my questions in a timely manner. When time is of the essence and you have a strict protocol to follow leading up to a retrieval or transfer, it makes you sweat if you don't get an answer to your question the same day.

Describe your experience with New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
There are a few gems at New Hope - Dr. Robin of course, and a few others I can count on one hand. But the front desk staff, financial staff, and some nurses were so terrible to work with. No urgency to respond to incredibly time-sensitive questions (when it came to prescriptions and injections). The front desk staff would let the phone ring and ring and ring and not even bother calling back the same day if you left a voicemail. The whole process outside of seeing Dr. Robin was so frustrating and after going through the process at a different clinic, I can see how badly I was treated.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Robin is so incredibly warm, sweet, empathetic and kind. She makes you feel like her only patient when you are with her - but unfortunately her support staff make you feel like a number. I feel sad for Dr. Robin that not all of her staff can rise to her level of care, because it is why I left her practice.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I loved the care provided by the nurse who did the ultrasounds, but the nurse who was supposed to educate me about my injections was so condescending and seemed frustrated by my questions. Even though I had never injected myself with anything before and was justifiably nervous! I felt frustrated, sad and scared going in to my first weekend of injectables. Even my husband was angry at the lack of care that nurse seemed to have for me.
What specific things went wrong at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Strengths - Dr. Robin is so great. She spent hours with my husband and I to talk about our treatment options and review test results. She truly, deeply cares about her patients. Weaknesses - Dr. Robin's staff is not like her. They do not seem to care about returning calls and emails promptly. And they make you feel like you are bothering them - even though you are spending tens of thousands out of pocket for your care and going through a highly emotionally taxing time.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
I loved my care by Dr. Robin, but sadly I could not support going to New Hope because of the treatment I received by many other of her staff.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
I was at these appointments for 2-3 hours - which was such a hassle while also trying to keep my job! You are shuffled from bloodwork to ultrasound to nurse and it moves so incredibly slow. I was really, really lucky to have a forgiving boss during this time but this was also why I decided to switch clinics - my boss' patience was running thin. They do all their cycles in a cohort since Dr. Robin is the only doctor at the practice - and that means its basically a cattle call because you are doing all your appointments with however many were in your cohort.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
The treatment at New Hope was significantly more expensive than at the other clinic I went to. I was also prescribed a heavier dose of medication at New Hope (thus more expensive), than I was at the other clinic who took a more conservative approach to my prescriptions and injectables.

My husband appreciated that New Hope was discreet in his testing (i.e. room placement). The building is laid out with the patient's privacy in mind. I am directionally challenged, which means I get lost often. But those at New Hope have always stopped and gave me directions when I asked.... The costs are equal to the other fertility clinics around us. Our insurance now does not accept fertility doctors, so we have to pay out of pocket.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Robin has a mothering/ nurturing care when treating you. When I miscarried, she wanted to do a panel testing to find out why. She checked on me, and a few of the nurses also called, to check on me.
Describe your experience with your nurse at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
All of the nurses and staff were kind to me. Two different times the medicine made me vomit....they were kind and understanding of my plight. There were times, my emotions would spill out of my eyes, and again, they were sympathetic to me.
How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Sometimes you will wait to been seen. But when it is your turn, it's never rushed. Dr. Robin makes sure you understand the next step in your journey. Dr. Robin has a friendly personality. She works hard for her patients. When we lost our set of twins, I can still remember her sadness for me....that really made a good impact on me.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Expect Dr. Robin to work hard for you, and follow the directions given.
Describe the protocols Robin Poe-Zeigler used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We had shots. Some need to be done at a specific time each day. I followed them religiously. It was 10 years ago, I don't remember names...but I remember the pain, haha.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
The costs are equal to the other fertility clinics around us. Our insurance now does not accept fertility doctors, so we have to pay out of pocket. Dr. Robin has a few options for loans for fertility from local banks.
Describe Robin Poe-Zeigler's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Yes, 2 at a time for us. We do have a vial of 3, she said that would be the max to put in.

Dr Robin and her staff she works directly with are amazing. There was one issue I had the entire time and that came from a woman named Tammy. She was the main reason I wouldn’t give this a 10. Not only is she not personable but she is rude without even knowing it. Condescending. She never quoted us a correct price, which was annoying but I hated the way she talked down to us. Like she knew everything and we knew nothing. Then I found out that she was dr robins sister. I cannot tell you how disappointed I was about that. For as much as I would give dr Robin a 10, Tammy is a 1. They need to get rid of her because she is bringing the place down. I know a few women who have been to ththe clinic and we have all said the same thing. Get rid of Tammy and it would brighten up the place

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Robin made me feel like I wasn’t alone. She was with me the entire way. Every time I felt like I couldn’t gonon she reassured me in the best way possible. She was more like family than a doctor.
Describe your experience with your nurse at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Erica )
Everyone was always rooting for me. They were kind and friendly. Every day I was always so nervous and they were behind me holding my hand. Literally sometimes. They helped me over come my fears and also helped me.

How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
She was the best doctor I have been to. She knew her ins and outs and never hesitated to let me know the truth but also what course of action we need to take. I would feel like certain days I was lost and she would redirect me. I’m very happy with her work. She gave me my daughter.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Make sure you have all your information correct. Don’t lie to her because it will just slow your progress. She will fight for you the entire way. I highly recommend her
Describe the protocols Robin Poe-Zeigler used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I had undiagnosed fertility. I tried for years by myself to get pregnant. I went to jones institute and was treated horribly by dr Perez. I went to New Hope because it was my only choice without going far away. Dr Robin worked so hard for me. She gave me my daughter. I can never say enough kind words
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Monitoring appointments were great. Sckeete was professional and smart, she really knew her ins and outs. I recommend her.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
The cost was measurable with everyone else until Tammy got involved. She would always mess something up. I would take about it with dr Robin and she would tell me to see Tammy and then Tammy would mess it up again and again. I don’t know why anyone would let her be in charge if anything’. She’s incompetent. And she’s really lazy. One time I was listening to another woman’s conversation and she had the same problem. The clinic is a 10. Tammy drags it down.

Dr. Robin was kind and empathetic. She told me what she would tell me to do if I was her daughter. She let me cry and she listened to me. After years of infertility, she gave me hope.

  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy

How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Robin is the reason that I have my daughter. I am forever grateful to her. Dr. Robin and science helped me create my family. She was honest and helpful every step of the way. Infertility is so isolated but she made me feel like I wasn’t alone
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Listen to her. She is good at what she does. She told me that IVF is what I needed to do with my diagnosis and I have a beautiful daughter thanks to New Hope
Describe the protocols Robin Poe-Zeigler used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We had a consultation and then they tested my husband and I for various things. He provided a sperm sample and was found to be fertile. I found out I had endometriosis and PCOS. Dr robin gave me the diagnosis and education. She advised that we do iVf and we proceeded from there
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
The financial aspect of IVF was beyond stressful and left me in tears many times. I was advised to take out loans and credit cards and when my insurance agreed to pay and sent a letter, the clinic didn’t believe me and told me I needed to pay thousands of dollars up front. I am a social worker so I was able to advocate for myself and ended up paying a few thousand in copays and medications out of pocket but as my insurance stated, the rest was covered.
Describe Robin Poe-Zeigler's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
We chose to have one embryo transferred because we were worried about being able to afford multiples and it was our first round of IVF.

If your case isn't super tricky, her nurse practitioner will probably be with you more than Dr. Robin herself. She has a lot of patients.
Describe the protocols Robin Poe-Zeigler used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We started with femara first but my body wasnt responding. So we went to follistim injectables. I was also taking metformin. The follistim worked, we did a trigger shot the day before the iui and did 2 iui's back to back days to give better chances. Once I became pregnant I took progesterone vaginally until I was 10 weeks along.

Strengths: Dr. Perez - he is charismatic, warm, friendly, and takes his time with you. He preformed both of my DNCs and I was very happy with him. Weaknesses: Waiting room times, inept and inattentive PAs that are never there very long, almost never seeing Dr. Robin, communication and accuracy issues with med refills and referrals, and things not being explained enough or often enough.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
I only felt like a human when being seen/treated in person by Dr. Robin or Dr. Perez; though I always felt that they forgot me as soon as I walked out the door. The myriad of revolving PAs I saw during my time there, never took the time to get to know me. Most tried to tell me they knew my body better than I did, and they repeatedly ignored issues and problems I brought to their attention. For example: Even after alerting one PA to certain issues, she ignored me and my subsequent endo-biopsy procedure sent me into shock; then the PA swore that there was no way I could be in shock after I told her.
Describe your experience with your nurse at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Willa (IVF team), then Kelly, then Willa (not for IVF though), then Erica)
Willa was always awesome, organized, and communicated better than anyone. She was the head nurse for IVF cycles. Kelly was good until we had a major med refill incident, then the Office Manager sent me back to Willa even though I was not undergoing IVF. Last year, for some reason, I received Erica as my nurse and had nothing but problems; from med refills to trying to get everything the new doctor they were sending me to wanted so that I could make an appointment. What should have been easy took months.

How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
When I first met Dr. Robin I felt she was wonderful, very warm, compassionate, and understanding; after that, I felt as if she forgot who I was unless she was holding my chart. I only saw her six times in eight years; my first consultation, one IUI, my egg retrieval and embryo implantation for IVF, once in the hallway, and at my consultation after my miscarriage. Even though I was still going to the practice at the beginning of this year, I hadn't actually seen her in person since 2010. Up until I was "shopped out" to another doctor, I felt she only remembered me when reviewing old patient files.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Expect to almost never see her except at a consultation appointment, an in-office procedure, if she's filling in, or you bump into her in the hallway.
Describe the protocols Robin Poe-Zeigler used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
It's been so long, I really don't remember much. I know I did Clomid with the IUIs. For the IVF we used birth control pills, Follistim and Braville? with progesterone in oil injections and vaginal progesterone inserts (I hated those - I reported that the medication turned black after being inserted - which was not a listed side-effect - and nothing was ever done. I even reported it to the pharmaceutical company who just referred me back to my doctor.) There was one other med we used besides what we used to induce ovulation, but I can't remember what it was. After I was pregnant, we continued the progesterone in oil and something else I can't remember. We used ICSI and Assisted Hatching during the IVF because the outer membrane of my eggs was so thick due to the PCOS. I do remember her telling me, at age 33, that I had the eggs of a 40 year old but produced the embryos of a 25 year old.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
I don't remember the IUI med costs. The IVF costs were about $10,000 for the meds, and almost $20,000 for the IVF because I required ICSI and assisted hatching. Chriopreservation and embryonic genetic testing were not offered at that time, so that was also not included.

It's [New Hope of Virginia] a great clinic. I enjoyed working with both physicians. The reception staff, nurses etc have all been warm and helpful. The facility is beautiful, and they work hard to stay up to date with the latest technology. My only real issues were with communication and financial disclosure. I knew it would be a complicated process, and expensive, but I wasn't given accurate or timely information all the time. Overall, though, Dr Perez and staff make up for any negatives by treating me like I matter to them. I never felt like a number. I'm healthy, happy and pregnant. :)

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christian Perez at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
From surgery to IVF and everything in between, Dr Perez kept in constant contact with me. The time and care he has shown goes so far beyond what any physician has ever offered me. If I had a question or concern, he made it a priority. Plus he's warm, kind and capable.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff during procedures is great. They are caring and compassionate. I felt a little lost during my cycles though. I wasn't always given enough information. And one very important instruction from the physician was not relayed to me post op, very frustrating. I had some complications. Overall they were good.

How was your experience with Christian Perez at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
My experience with Dr Perez has been incredible. He took a holistic approach from the beginning - concentrating on the root of my issues. We have been working towards conception, but also focusing on my health and management of my PCOS and other issues. Because of this, I finally started ovulating on my own (after 11 years of trying to conceive). We got pregnant naturally between treatments, but it's because we worked on healing me. I'm so much healthier to carry this baby, and I have him to thank. He was candid about my health and that I needed to make life changes. He taught me how to work with my body. He diagnosed my issues, has treated them with medication and surgery. He cares and he works for you. But he asks you to do your part too. He also was always there for me when I was anxious or had a disappointing cycle. He never lost hope and his positive energy kept us moving forward.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christian Perez at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Be open-minded and heed his advice. He cares about more than pregnancy; the physical and mental health of his patients are very important to him. Ask questions.
Describe the protocols Christian Perez used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.

Describe the protocols Christian Perez used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Prior to egg retrieval I was required to take injections to enlarge my eggs. There was also a surgery that was preformed I am unsure what is was called but I remember them explaining it to me as if they were going to shock my ovaries to hopefully start working since I have PCOS. Once the egg retrieval was completed I over stimulated and they took excellent care of me with fluids and monitoring. Came back 2 weeks later only had 2 eggs that were able to be transferred out of 39 I think. Transfer was completed in the office and waited 2 weeks for a pregnancy test which was positive. Then about week later I had a miscarriage. Dr Perez took more blood to determine the reason and suggests that the egg just were not growing and suggested another try unfortunately we were not able to do it a second time due to funds.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christian Perez at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
My medications with insurance coverage was around $2000 Total with everything and surgeries about $15000 plus

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christian Perez at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Perez does not expain things unless you ask. It seems like he assumes you already know. Unlike his assistant nurse practitioner Kat, who is warm and asks you if you understand and have any questions. He has a tendency to do the ultrasound, tell u what will happen next, shake your hand, and he is out of the room before you can blink.
Describe your experience with your nurse at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Nurse Practitioner Kat)
Answered all of my questions and was ver compationate and warm. Had her staff explain all meds and always asked if I had questions or concerns.
How was your experience with Christian Perez at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Perez is very knowledgeable and confident in what he is doing. He may not be the most personal or open to conversation, but very dependable. He will explain things if you ask, but is not one to reasure or give you false hope.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christian Perez at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Look past his slow to warm up personality. He knows what he is doing and does it very well. I always trusted his judgment. He will always have you and your future in his best interest.
Describe the protocols Christian Perez used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I am a lgbt individual who has lack of sperm and pollycyctic ovaries. I was put on meds to help with the pco and assisted with chlomid one cycle and femera the next. This helped with timing for the IUI and to get my eggs to release a mature egg that would hold. We had to not try the second month after a neg pregnancy, due to my eggs not going back to normal after my cycle. I am now pregnant after my 2nd IUI (3rd month)and getting blood work every 2 days to check my estrogen and thighroide levels.

The clinic [New Hope of VA] was very nice in terms of ambiance. I found it helpful they were able to open rather early to allow me to get ultrasounds done before work. Weakness wise I felt that the billing was sometimes not explained well. When you spend that much money out of pocket, it would be helpful to have an itemized bill explained each visit--I often had to reach back out for explaination...the rest of her staff was sometimes cold and rushed.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
While directly speaking with her, felt like a human. When we were there for other visits I felt like we were pushed through more like a number, and we actually only saw her 2-3 times total during the entire cycles.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were sometimes cold unfortunately. When I would ask to speak with the MD or ask questions, it was sometimes difficult to get answers, etc. Everyone seemed overtasked much of the time.
What specific things went wrong at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
  • Failed to call with results

How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
While I absolutely loved Robin Poe-Zeigler, the rest of her staff was sometimes cold and rushed. I would have loved to get even brief updates from her directly at times instead of only seeing her for actual procedures and the consultation date. In addition--after we were lucky enough to be pregnant, once we were discharged to an OB, no one ever reached out to check on us. Even after we sent a birth announcement and an email to inform them.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
She is good technically and wonderful during consultation. However, be prepared to be rushed through for other parts of testing etc.
Describe the protocols Robin Poe-Zeigler used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I don't remember many details, as I was only able to retrieve 1 egg from our stimulation cycle. We ended up doing embryo donor to conceive.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
We ended up spending close to $20,000 out of pocket. It is very hard to come up with all of this money up front. We had to max out some credit cards/line of credit which is extremely stressful.
Describe Robin Poe-Zeigler's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
We did meet with the embryologist which was helpful. She explained the options and preferences in detail. We did have input with this.

What specific things went wrong at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
I think Dr. Robin's strengths are her knowledge and compassion for her patients. She was willing to try an IVF cycle with me while I feel other doctors might have turned me away because of my weight. During the retrieval, we were not able to get many eggs due to my size. I wasn't aware that could be an issue before the retrieval, so I was disappointed when I woke up to find out we had only gotten three eggs. I do give Dr. Robin credit for looking at other options that might help me get pregnant. Though, I didn't conceive as a direct result of a fertility treatment, I did eventually conceive and deliver a beautiful baby girl. I believe Dr. Robin's surgeries to treat my endometriosis played a large part in that happening.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
I would advise them to make sure they understand all the possible outcomes of their procedures.
Describe the protocols Robin Poe-Zeigler used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We first tried a fresh IVF cycle because I had a blocked tube. That did not lead to a pregnancy because though I developed over twenty eggs, we were only able to retrieve three eggs, and only one fertilized. We then tried an IUI with injectibles to see if the ovary that developed the egg would be on the same side as the unblocked tube. Neither of these treatments led to pregnancy.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
I believe my IVF cycle was approximately $20,000. I don't remember the cost of the IUI.

Doctor Robin explained every single detail to my husband and I about the different options with infertility treatments. She explained some causes of PCOS and why it effects women’s infertility. We are a young couple so sometimes people tend to judge becaus of our age but she was one who didn’t. She wanted to give us the hope and joy of having a child of our own.

How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Robin is a very kind and compassionate woman. I did run into some issues with my thyroid while under her care and unfortunately the way her staff handled it and the consult I had with her, we had to switch clinics. I am thankful I did because I was diagnosed with thyroiditus and had to stop all treatments (she was still allowing me to do medicated IUI cycles while I was having the thyroid issues) once I started seeing my new endocronologist and fertility team. I feel like I certainly fell through the cracks at their practice.

Describe your experience with New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
I would say that a new patient needs to do a lot of research before doing this process and become education on all the options. I would also say to go to at least 2 clinics before making a decision on where to go.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
I thought Dr. Robin could have not been better however, a lot of her staff is cold and unfriendly and makes you feel like you are doing them a favor by being there. Only a few were delicate and compassionate. The majority were not.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I have already answered this question.
What specific things went wrong at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
There is absolutely nothing negative I could say about Dr. Robin other than I wish I saw her more during my treatment. Even if it was her poking her head in to say hi and to see if everything is ok and answering any questions. I didnt see her much but when I did I loved her. The staff could improve in making you feel like a number and get some compassion from Dr. Robin. This is a very delicate emotional process and a lot of the staff is not sensitive to that.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Have a tough skin and try to not be so emotional attached to the process. Also, make sure you make them explain everything until you understand. A lot of times they did not explain things well what so ever before they happen. Also, make sure you are on top of your process and know what is supposed to happen and not just wait for them to tell you.
Describe the protocols Robin Poe-Zeigler used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I dont remember the details of this.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
I prob spend all together with 2 retrievals and 3 implantation's mat least $55k.
Describe Robin Poe-Zeigler's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.
I recommend 100% doing the genetic testing that I did during my second egg retrieval. I was not told about this for some reason until I asked about it.

The New Hope Center was very well organized and I almost never had a long wait. The staff and nurses were amazing and were willing to help. Their after work phone service was terrible and when there were emergencies you had to get gruff with them to even make headway... We used donor embryos. She had me on Metformin, for prevention, thyroid meds because it was on the line, blood thinners because my blood clots too quick, estrogen, progesterone. This was our fourth round and our third negative. She left us in our office with the words “there is no earthly explanation why you are not pregnant”.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
She was very friendly and knows your name, but was not as good about showing you as she worked or walking you through things. I think it is just numbers she has less time to spend.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were all friendly and super helpful.
What specific things went wrong at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Robin is a great doctor but can be caught up on rules rather than compassion. She is not as willing to walk you through the process such as showing you your ultra sounds or walking through the process. She left us without hope which was difficult to process but there is nothing too negative I can say about her.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
She is busy and has lots of clients so just know your hand won’t be held.
Describe the protocols Robin Poe-Zeigler used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.

The clinic [New Hope Ctr for Repro Med] has everything in one office to make it as convenient and comfortable for you as possible. The staff is mixed in good and bad. But for the most part if staff is not good they are gone pretty quickly. The ones that stay are good.... There were a few times I didn’t get a phone call with results when promised but usually due to dr not reviewing chart before close of business so I got a call first thing the next day.

Dr. Perez is a very personable doctor...I would recommend his office [New Hope Center] snd him as a doctor. I felt that I had the best results when I used acupuncture (not at Dr. Perez' office) all along with my treatment....I thought the cost of IVF was given beforehand, but total costs were not really outlined. It was more expensive than I was prepared for when you added in labs, surgical fees and other necessary costs, but worth it. Maybe no one would do it if they knew ahead of time exactly how much it would all cost.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christian Perez at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Perez is a very personable doctor.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were great. One nurse failed to tell me a necessary medication to take before a procedure and miscommunicated to me about an expensive test, that I chose to get based upon misinformation. All other experiences, many more than two, were positive.

Describe the protocols Christian Perez used in your cycles at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I used donor egg IVF 5 different times and don' t remember any details other than that. I really just did whatever they recommended, ICSI and extended culture. Because of my age, I never tried with my own eggs. Fresh cycles were more successful than frozen.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christian Perez at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine.

The worst weakness I experienced [at new Hope of Virginia] was the billing department. In the beginning I had several issues between insurance and my out of pocket costs, and lots of miscommunication in between. I was a patient their before they moved to their new location. After the move, those weaknesses seemed to get much better.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Before Dr Robin, I had seen 5 different doctors at my normal GYN's office. For months I had described the issues I was having, and all 5 doctors told me I was "normal". Within the first 15 minutes of meeting Dr Robin, not only did she assure me it wasn't normal, but she also predicted what was wrong. And she was 100% correct.
What specific things went wrong at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
  • Failed to call with results

How was your experience with Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Robin is an amazing doctor and human being. She cared about me as a person, as her patient and I really believe she wanted my husband and I to be happy and healthy. Our son is now 18 months old. While I didn't require many of the treatments of most people suffering with infertility, we are still 100% convinced that we have him thanks to her kindness and dedication to her craft. Her knowledge of infertility and desire to help couples is outstanding and she is unlike any other medical professional I have ever come across.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Poe-Zeigler at New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Trust her.

They figured out what happened in the mix up and apologized....I ovulate naturally, so we did natural IUI's. Once I tested positive for ovulation, using an at home test, we scheduled an IUI for 24 hours later.

The only real downside about the clinic [New Hope Center] is its location. We live in Hampton, so we ended up logging a LOT of miles driving to and from Virginia Beach over the course of our treatments, but it was totally worth it....It was around $18,000 for our IVF cycle because our insurance did not cover fertility treatments....Dr. Robin is absolutely amazing. We knew exactly what to expect at every stage of the process. We were always treated as people and not just numbers.The doctor spent as much time as needed making us comfortable
