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.

Dr Noyes has very practical and no nonsense approach. I felt we were on the same page about my treatment plan and the possible outcomes....Also, if you have low ovarian reserve talk to her about aggressive vs non aggressive protocols in advance...I like and trust Dr Noyes but wish we had more one on one interaction. I only saw her in person for my intake appt before my first IUI and after two cancelled IVF cycles. All my communication was with the nurses and other Dr's who did my ultrasounds...If you want to have lots of personal interaction with Dr Noyes she might not be the Dr for you..
NYU is a big clinic but they are a well oiled machine. Arrive early for daily monitoring and you will get in and out quickly. All the nurses are fantastic and billing dept is very easy to deal with....I was covered by insurance and hand minimal out of pocket costs...I like and trust Dr Noyes but wish we had more one on one interaction.

I only saw him [Dr. Frederick Licciardi] twice through the entire cycle though and had him once on the phone...He was very pessimistic about my treatment and personally called me to recommend aborting the cycle half way through because of the low number of eggs. He however did not offer any alternative, so I proceeded with the cycle and became pregnant with only two eggs retrieved.
They [nurses at NYU] were completely disorganized, abrupt and unfriendly...[monitoring appointments were] Disorganized, unfriendly...Everyone is rushed, the nurses are disorganized and not always aware of your treatment plan. You need to keep following up and remind them of details. The staff is generally cold, unfriendly and impatient. There seems to be a disconnect between doctors, nurses, coordinators.

Dr. Fino was through and thoughtful and it always felt like she cared. It never felt like a show of interest. She was busy built always felt like she was there only for you....IF unsuccessful we would switch to IVF. Dr Fino was very accommodating. After the first unsuccessful IUI she allowed us to take the IVF classes and prepare for IVF while continuing the IUI treatment. We were luckily successful with the second IUI.

Nursing staff knew me by name, Dr Fino was very warm and personable. She made me felt heard and valued... Dr FIno was very engaging and I know she wanted to see us with a pregnancy. We never changed up our approach towards pregnancy. I would have liked for her to have offered more aggressive treatment or solutions to our recurring losses....We did IUI with clomid, never did progesterone.... Do research and ask about trying different methods to achieve pregnancy.
NYU is a large clinic with small satellite offices. There are many doctors on staff and I selected mine based on online reviews. The clinic is connected to the hospital so billing for various procedures is very streamlined... Nursing staff was the same each time I went in so it was comforting to see familiar faces.

Very competent doctor. Bedside manner is not his strong point.
This is not the place to go if you're looking for emotional support, but a place to go if you just care about the results.
How was your experience with Alan Berkeley at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Very competent doctor. Bedside manner is not his strong point and it was hard to get access to him to actually speak to him, but he's very good at explaining the procedures and he knows what he's doing. This is not the place to go if you're looking for emotional support, but a place to go if you just care about the results.

Make sure you ask the questions you want answered. Don't expect to be coddled.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Alan Berkeley at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
They certainly knew who we were and they were personable. But the clinic operates much like a factory without much emotion or personal care. It's very hard to just speak to the doctor.

Dr. Licciardi returned phone calls personally and when we were getting impatient and wanted to explore adding medication to our IUIs he suggested another round of natural before going that route and that's the cycle I got pregnant. We now have a two year old and are starting the process again with Dr. Licciardi for baby number two.
The practice is large and runs like a well oiled machine. We appreciated that monitoring hours were strictly for monitoring. Other clinics also performed IUIs during monitoring hours. NYU also included blood work in their monitoring and not all clinics do.
How was your experience with Frederick Licciardi at NYU Langone Fertility Center?

I really can't say enough good things about Dr. Noyes. After our very long tenure at NYU, I missed her...Dr. Noyes is very honest and straightforward. Sometimes the truth is pretty ugly, but the sooner you know what your situation is, the sooner you can figure out the best course of action.
They [the staff at NYU Fertility Center] are all professionals yet they understand the emotions that infertility brings about and they are very sensitive to that...From our first meeting, Dr. Noyes made us feel like we were in this together and that she was confident that based on my previous cycles, she could get us pregnant.
How was your experience with Nicole Noyes at NYU Langone Fertility Center?

[Dr. James Grifo] provided me and my partner with benefit and risk followed by all the numbers and statistics so we can make our own decision. But when we were lost he was there to give us his advise...Don't expect to see him every visit, but he will be there for you when you need explanation or guidance...He listens to all our needs...I felt we're cared about.
Though [NYU Langone Fertility Center] operation doesn't allow us to see our doctor every time, I felt we're cared about...your concerns will be answered with all the data and statistics they have collected...wonderful team of nurses.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with James Grifo at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
He listens to all our needs from the beginning. Though NYU's operation doesn't allow us to see our doctor every time, I felt we're cared about. When we had to cancel the transfer cycle just two days before the procedure when ASRM announced their guideline to strongly recommend all patients to postpone the transfer, he was there for us to make the decision.
Describe the protocols James Grifo used in your cycles at NYU Langone Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Retrieval: I began with Gonal F and Menopur, and when the day approaches he prescribed one more medichine to prevent me from ovulating too soon. Followed by HCG trigger shot. He recommended taking Selenium supplement, and eat more walnuts and 70g protein a day.

Between 7am and 9am, the earlier you go, the shorter the wait time was. later time on Saturdays was much more crowded than weekdays.

The initial consultation with Dr. Fino was great and we left feeling optimistic about the next steps. Given that we received zero communication during the following three IUI's and the Dr wasn't present for any of the procedures...my wife was prescribed Clomid to assist in ovulating multiple eggs. In 2 of 3 cycles, the drug had no effect and only one egg was produced and in 1 of the cycles, two follicles developed
[NYU Langone Fertility Center is] a well-oiled machine, modern, clean, and efficient and seams to accommodate for many procedures every hour based on the number of people coming and going. The issue is, it feels more like a machine than an intimate clinic. However, for busy professionals who need to get in and out with minimal fuss, this might be the perfect option...Initial consultation plus scan $760. Each IUI round $1045
How was your experience with Elizabeth Fino at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
The initial consultation with Dr. Fino was great and we left feeling optimistic about the next steps. Given that we received zero communication during the following three IUI's and the Dr wasn't present for any of the procedures, we moved onto a new clinic with a more personal approach. NYU is clearing pushing patients through the system en-masse which may be perfectly fine for some individuals.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Fino at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
Follow up and insist on speaking with the Dr. You are unlikely to hear from Dr. Fino if you simply wait to be contacted
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Fino at NYU Langone Fertility Center?
We received one initial consultation from Dr. Fino. After undergoing 3 IUI's we received zero follow up's from the Dr. Since this was our first experience with fertility Dr's, we just assumed this was the norm. Trying to contact the Dr was impossible, as you are consistently blocked by the assisting staff.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Fino used in your cycles at NYU Langone Fertility Center and their degree of success.
From memory, my wife was prescribed Clomid to assist in ovulating multiple eggs. In 2 of 3 cycles, the drug had no effect and only one egg was produced and in 1 of the cycles, two follicles developed. Had the Dr been monitoring the results, I assume another drug may have been prescribed to assist.

He [Dr. James Grifo] always made me feel like I was important. It didn’t matter how busy he was, he made sure to answer all my questions and not rush my appointments... was an absolute genius in his field. Not only was he brilliant and ready to make changes so that I could achieve the best possible results, he was also kind, compassionate and caring. He knew how nervous I was and always made sure to calm me down and be the positivity that I needed.
They are very busy [at NYU] , but the whole process runs smoothly. You will get the best treatment and that is what is most important...I recommend getting to early morning monitoring before 8:55am because otherwise you will have a wait. If you have a question, ask. A nurse will always get right back to you. They really have your best interest at heart. This is a hard process but they are all there to help you every step of the way.
