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.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He [Dr. Barry Ripps] was very detailed oriented and went through a lot of data with a PowerPoint. It was very informative but not necessarily specific to my case. He seems very knowledgeable and competent but he made me feel stupid for asking questions. He also made his prices seem much cheaper than they are. I left that second meeting wondering if I picked the right doctor.
They [NewLIFE] have many offices. You can do most of your treatments in the office closest to you but the retreival and transfers are done in Pensacola, FL. You can never get anyone on the phone in Pensacola, which is unfortunate. The Mobile office staff is Awesome! They put all of your labs, rx, paperwork, etc. on the patient portal so you can see it. I wish someone would have sent me all of the consent paperwork before the retreival so I could have looked it over instead of doing it the day of. Overall the office staff and clinical staff have been great.
How was your experience with Barry Ripps at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology)?
I met with Dr. Ripps twice. The first time via zoom and I left that meeting feeling great about him and my future treatment. The second appointment was in person. He was very detailed oriented and went through a lot of data with a PowerPoint. It was very informative but not necessarily specific to my case. He seems very knowledgeable and competent but he made me feel stupid for asking questions. He also made his prices seem much cheaper than they are. I left that second meeting wondering if I picked the right doctor. I had way more embryos make it to blast with the egg retrieval I did with him. He did order a different med protocol than I did for my first egg retrieval (with a different doctor) so that could be a reason why.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Barry Ripps at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology)?
Make sure to read the pamphlets before hand so you don't get too lost when he's going over his presentation.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Barry Ripps at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology)?
The staff has been wonderful. I can always talk to a person right away when a call and they know who I am.
Describe the protocols Barry Ripps used in your cycles at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology) and their degree of success.
I did IVF with embryo freezing and genetic testing. For the egg retrieval I did gonal-f 150iu/day and menopur 225iu/day. Got around 16 eggs, I think all of them fertilized, 7 made it blasts. I think that says good things about the clinic's lab.
Describe your experience with your nurse at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology). (Assigned nurse: Stephanie)
The staff at the Mobile office is amazing. I can always talk to someone. They are very responsive and flexible. They make the whole process stress free.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Barry Ripps at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology).
Between $15,000-$16,000 for an egg retrieval. ICSI is included (they do it for all of their patients). Short term embryo storage (around $2000 if I remember...which seemed pretty expensive to me) was included in the price of egg retrieval. That also included the monitoring. I can't remember how much a transfer is but I think it's under 5,000.
Describe Barry Ripps's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology).
He does educate you on the trade offs of 1 or 2 embryo transfered in the pamphlets but we haven't really talked about it yet. We haven't planned for a transfer yet but I'm guessing he will suggest 1 embryo since we are doing genetic testing.
What specific things went wrong at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology)?
  • Failed to order appropriate test
Describe the specific things that went wrong at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology).
They forgot to do an ovulation test on me before my trigger shot for my retreival so I had to buy my own and do it at home. It wasn't that big of a deal, except the test kit it expensive.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Overall Dr. Ripps is very experienced professional. His strengths are being thorough and confident in his job. He is very thorough with assigning diagnostic testing and labs...His weakness would be availability. He has multiple clinics in the panhandle so his schedule is very tight, I had to wait 4 months from my initial consultation to the “plan meeting” to determine course of action. Also, during the plan meeting it felt very rushed like it was on a time constraint.
The clinic [NewLIFE] overall is great. I honestly believe the biggest strength of the clinic is the nurses and NPs. They were so compassionate, informative and available during a very stressful time. One of their weakness is availability of appointments...I had to wait 4 months from my initial consultation to the “plan meeting” to determine course of action...My NP that I worked with was very patient with all my questions and even gave out a cell phone number for patients to contact her during after hours during the cycle.
How was your experience with Barry Ripps at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology)?
Overall Dr. Ripps is very experienced professional. His strengths are being thorough and confident in his job. He is very thorough with assigning diagnostic testing and labs. He covered all bases to determine the issue of fertility. His confidence was very reassuring when the fear of unknown is looming. To my husband it kind of came of as arrogant, but I appreciated his certainty. During all the tests and procedures he was present for he made me very comfortable and informed me of what was to be done and expected. His weakness would be availability. He has multiple clinics in the panhandle so his schedule is very tight, I had to wait 4 months from my initial consultation to the “plan meeting” to determine course of action. Also, during the plan meeting it felt very rushed like it was on a time constraint.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Barry Ripps at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology)?
Set up an appointment now! Even if you’re unsure of your fertility status, get your name on the books. It’s better to cancel an appt then wait months. Also do some research before the initial appointment. I’m in the medical field so I understand most medical terminology but my husband did not. I felt it was very helpful to research things on social media (Facebook groups or Instagram influencers), and friends that have experienced infertility. For me google did not have most the answers I was looking for.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Barry Ripps at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology)?
I felt like a human because he remembered my career and always asked me specific questions about my job.
Describe the protocols Barry Ripps used in your cycles at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology) and their degree of success.
For my IVF cycle they started me off on birth control to take control of my cycle. Then after my baseline monitoring was done I was started on a high dose of stimulating medications due to my low AMH/DOR. I was dosed 225IU of Menopur and 225IU of follistim. I was on stim meds for 8 days. I had 3 very large follicles (22-26mm) and many other small follicles (14-16mm) So it was a battle of making sure my large follicles didn’t grow too big, and the smaller ones could catch up. Once the stim process was done, I triggered and set up the egg retrieval. The egg retrieval yielded 7 follicle: 2 cysts and 5 eggs.
Describe your experience with your nurse at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology). (Assigned nurse: Heather Doerr)
The nursing staff was FANTASTIC. They were all very nice and attentive. By the end of my cycle they all knew me on a first name basis which was very comforting. My NP that I worked with was very patient with all my questions and even gave out a cell phone number for patients to contact her during after hours during the cycle. She was incredibly sweet and always took time to explain the next steps and what to expect. Whenever I called and left a message they always returned my call by the same day. The financial department was great with accommodating insurance (or lack of) and payments.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Barry Ripps at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology).
The cost of my care was completely out of pocket. My health insurance did not cover anything. Consultation appointments were $200-300. Each lab were anywhere from $30- $150. The clinic offered to send out some labs to the cheapest testing site since they knew I was paying out of pocket. For the IVF process the cost was $10,400 and that including the cycle ultrasounds, labs, cyroperservation of the embryos, anesthesia and the embryologist.
Describe Barry Ripps's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology).
My doctor told me initially that due to my age and guidelines I was only allowed to transfer one embryo. He did not want to risk the chance of having multiples. He did talk about it again on retrieval day that if I had embryos that graded low we might transfer 2. But only if I did not have 1 good scoring embryo. I ended up with 1 4BB which he thought was good enough to just transfer one.

Dr Ripps has been a great doctor throughout our 5 years under his care...We were always well informed about the process and were given all the information needed. When we were concerned about anything, he would schedule appointments with us to discuss treatment plans, etc...We were unable to do a multiple embryo transfer given my age and, at the time, no history of miscarriage.
Wonderful clinic! I honestly don’t have any weaknesses besides sometimes having to wait a long time before my appointment, but that is not a big deal. All the staff are incredibly professional and warm hearted. I got to know most staff members of the clinic on a personal level and it made my experience that much better...[nurses] are caring and compassionate and all incredible at what they do
How was your experience with Barry Ripps at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology)?
Dr Ripps has been a great doctor throughout our 5 years under his care. Although we did not get all perfect outcomes, we have a beautiful baby because of him. We were always well informed about the process and were given all the information needed. When we were concerned about anything, he would schedule appointments with us to discuss treatment plans, etc.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Barry Ripps at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology)?
Ask questions if you have them and advocate for yourself as well. Many people going though fertility treatments know their bodies. Speak up if you have concerns or questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Barry Ripps at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology)?
The care given was always great. I truly felt like our dr was advocating for us instead of just being “another patient”.

Describe the protocols Barry Ripps used in your cycles at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology) and their degree of success.
Timed intercourse with Femara and injections. There seemed to be no rationale between which injections were chosen, but Femara was chosen because of the “better” side effects vs. Clomid. I have not been successful yet, but do not think that has to do with the clinic. They monitor the cycles well.

Describe the protocols Barry Ripps used in your cycles at NewLIFE (Leaders in Fertility & Endocrinology) and their degree of success.
Since we had tried multiple times at home already, he recommended using letrazole. Post tests, my ovarian reserve is lower than others my age, so that is still what is being done. I had no reason to feel that there is anything else wrong with me, but thanks to his extensive tests we discovered quite a few flaws.

The work-ups he recommended were extensive and thorough. He takes his time to explain and answers your questions or concerns... he will let you know whether to transfer one vs multiple embryos, depending on the quality; but ultimately, the final decision will be from the coup
