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 Not sure
Dr Palta has a personality you will either love or hate - she is very direct and upfront and won't beat around the bush, yet she is also very compassionate when there is not so great news to be delivered...She was open to what I wanted to do, she did not try to influence my decision unless I asked for her opinion...There is a more flexibility at her practice and and she has accommodated me many times
[the NY Fertility] clinic is a one woman show and run very differently than a larger clinic. You do the first steps of the process with her and then work with a larger clinic for the retrieval, testing etc. It works great as a place to get monitoring done as long as they can get the bloodwork over to the clinic in a timely fashion...You have to stay on top of everything, she is a one person show running a busy practice on her own with an army of helpers
How was your experience with Vidya Palta at New York Fertility?
Dr Palta has a personality you will either love or hate - she is very direct and upfront and won't beat around the bush, yet she is also very compassionate when there is not so great news to be delivered (such as in my case). She is also a bit of a data nerd and delivers her opinions based on recent data and recites studies from the top of her head, which I appreciated. She went out of her way several times to help me prepare for big decisions that had financial repercussions (such as using clinics that had labs that my insurance covered) and contacting the right people to make sure I got in to the right places, etc. I felt that she was a good "general counsel" for some of the considerations I didn't know about being new to the IVF process and that was very helpful.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vidya Palta at New York Fertility?
You have to stay on top of everything, she is a one person show running a busy practice on her own with an army of helpers, and very different than working with a large clinic that is a well oiled machine that has different people handling different aspects of the practice.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vidya Palta at New York Fertility?
Dr Palta truly cares about her patients - she spends a lot more time with you than a regular doctor would. It's a very small practice and she runs the show and it's far from a well oiled machine but she makes it all work somehow. There is a more flexibility at her practice and and she has accommodated me many times, in ways a larger clinic would or could not when I have asked her to consider things I have done research on or read about.
Describe the protocols Vidya Palta used in your cycles at New York Fertility and their degree of success.
Gonal 900 units (5) - Started at 225, then 150 Menopur (30 valves) Leuprolide kit (1) Ganirelix (8) Novorel HCG (2 valves) 5000U
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at New York Fertility.
Dr Palta pretty much runs the show and her nurses do what she asks, you never get the same person as she has an army assisting her

Describe Vidya Palta's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at New York Fertility.
She was open to what I wanted to do, she did not try to influence my decision unless I asked for her opinion

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
While she [Dr. Palta] is great when she is with you, she can be forgetful. Make sure that you follow up with the staff for things like appointment times and refilling prescriptions...She gets to know her patients and really tries to work with you and explain everything...You see Dr. Palta at just about every visit. She even draws my blood sometimes. She answers the phone personally at night and has called at odd hours to make sure that I have the results of tests as soon as she gets them. She is also quite knowledgeable and tries to explain the science behind everything.
The staff [at New York Fertility] in her office is great. Although Dr. Palta watches over everything that they do...The office is just Dr. Palta and her staff, so it feels much smaller and you get more personal attention than you would get in a larger clinic. She is open on weekends which is great, but it would be nice if they were open earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon during the week...You see Dr. Palta at just about every visit.
