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. Meng is very attentive to the patient's needs and always patient's best interests first. We discussed treatment options and pro and cons for ICSI and frozen embryos and etc. Dr. Meng's professional knowledge base seems to be up to date. I like the fact she doesn't use phrases like "that's how we do things" but rather explains her recommendations with research findings in the fields. She's never shy to share her two cents even on personal choices (gender selections, when to transfer) and of course professional recommendations on single embryo transfer vs. two. She always greets patients with smiles and a cautiously optimistic attitude. From there I know she's having everything under control and I'm in good hands
The strengths [of California Dream Fertility Center] are very obvious that the doctor CARES. Since the doctor takes full ownership of the clinic, she has control over the staff and the pace of the clinic...doctor is very hardworking in PERSONALLY reviewing patients' records and truly providing individualized care. Weakness from my experience is that because the clinic is still at its growing stage, you don't get a full package of everything, compared to some more established practices. But the doctor and nursing staff are very knowledgable and are always ready to answer questions.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?
Get your questions prepared and she always welcomes challenging questions. Don't expect the doctor will tell you "yes, you'll be successful no matter what" but rather walk through the specific steps with Dr. Meng that will take you to a better result.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?
Dr. Meng always listens to my concerns closely and addresses each and every one with her knowledge and backs it up with stats. She cares about patient's feelings and does her best to ease my anxiety by examples of her own.
Describe the protocols Fangyin Meng used in your cycles at California Dream Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I know I'd do IVF to begin with as I've had consultations and prelim checkups from other clinics. So the treatment strategy was simple for me and just followed instructions when I had my period. I started with Menopur and Gonal-F on CD 3 and minor dosage adjustments with FSH and E2 levels. Since I had PCOS but not severe, Dr. Meng was carefully dosing my medications and closely monitoring my E2 level to not overly stimulate my ovaries. Cetrotide from CD6 and trigger with HCG and Lupron. No surprise no drama and everything went smoothly with egg retrieval. The transfer was also very smooth. I let the clinic know when I had my period and made the appointment to come in for an ultrasound then use letrozole for 5 days to control egg growth (otherwise, with my PCOS condition, eggs are growing slow and/or all over the place).
Describe your experience with your nurse at California Dream Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Audrey)
Dr. Meng has a small clinic and is very organized and cheerful. All the ladies are pleasant and know what they are doing. Nursing staff are on top of labs and all medical records (I have about 100+ pages of them) and they keep good records of what services were performed in their clinic.
Describe your experience with California Dream Fertility Center.
The strengths are very obvious that the doctor CARES. Since the doctor takes full ownership of the clinic, she has control over the staff and the pace of the clinic. I think this is key to receiving quality and consistent service from a medical office, besides top-notch professional care from the providers themselves. Also, the doctor is very hardworking in PERSONALLY reviewing patients' records and truly providing individualized care. Weakness from my experience is that because the clinic is still at its growing stage, you don't get a full package of everything, compared to some more established practices. But the doctor and nursing staff are very knowledgable and are always ready to answer questions.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center.
Professional fee for monitoring and procedures is separate for lab-related fees. Egg retrieval cycle including ICSI, and a set number of PGT testings for all developed blasts is slightly under 20K early 2021, and my Rx was about 3K. The transfer cycle totaled 4K ish including medication.
Describe Fangyin Meng's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at California Dream Fertility Center.
Dr always recommends one at a time for my case since I have no prior miscarriage or failed transfer. She explained various increased risk factors for multiples and based on my age (not in a huge rush of having many babies), Dr. Meng encouraged me to stay with one and make sure it's PGT tested for better success rate.

How was your experience with Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?
I found Dr. Meng by friend's recommendation, and I already had several failed cycles with my local doctors. Dr. Meng explained everything and designed my personalized plan. The treatment was not that smooth at the beginning. Dr. Meng adjusted accordingly. I am so lucky that I got pregnant with the first try.

Describe Fangyin Meng's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at California Dream Fertility Center.
I requested to transfer 2 embryos several times, Dr. Meng said no and explained to me the reason. At that time, I still felt my body can carry twins. The reality is, Dr. Meng is absolutely right, and I am not a good candidate for twins, and luckily, I am with singleton now, which makes my risk much lower. I really appreciate her professional judgement.

And she did IUI for me on the weekends too. I really appreciate that and feel very grateful. I'm successfully conceived in my second cycle of IUI...

How was your experience with Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?
Dr. Meng is warm, caring, and knowledgeable. I know I'm in good hands when I first met her. Not only did she explain my fertility options, but she also told me how to manage my body and health with my condition in a long run. Without hesitation, I started my first IUI round with her after the first appointment. During the course of the IUI cycle, she and her office were always easy to reach and she'd answer all my questions within a few hours even on the weekends! And she did IUI for me on the weekends too. I really appreciate that and feel very grateful. I'm successfully conceived in my second cycle of IUI. We are very happy but nervous at the same time. But every time when I go see Dr. Meng, I feel relieved because as I said early I know I'm in good hands. I'd highly recommend Dr. Meng if you are having challenges to conceive.

During the year-long IVF process, I always felt that Dr. Meng put my feelings and needs first. The warm atmosphere made me feel like I became a friend of Dr. Meng...designed my cycle plan professionally and patiently, relieved my anxiety, answered my confusion, avoided unnecessary waste in drug use to save the expense. I am very grateful to Dr. Meng for suggesting that I add another egg retrieval before implantation, which not only relieves the stress caused by the lack of blastocysts, but also creates the possibility for the second child in the future.
This clinic [California Dream Fertility Center] has professional doctor, caring nurses, flexible services and warm atmosphere. Cooperated with superb surgery center and embryologist team, the entire IVF cycle became very smooth and made me feel confident and relaxed...The team treated me like a family member. They care what I care and answer my questions patiently always. I’d like to thank Abby, Audrey, Isabella as their gentleness melted my heart every time.
How was your experience with Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?
As a patient with endometriosis and severely degraded ovarian function, I realized that my IVF journey would be very tortuous. However, I was still trapped in the unprecedented despair after the first failed cycle. The completely uncontrollable sense of powerlessness and unknown during the entire cycle made me feel like a guinea pig on the assembly line, accompanied by endless anxiety and confusion about the future. When my husband and I were sitting in doctor's office and asked him what we could do, the doctor said sorry, there's nothing you can do. At that moment, I realized that it was time to change clinic and doctor. In June 2021, my husband saw Dr. Meng's free IVF lecture on the Internet that cleared many of our concerns. After a remote video communication as we lived in the east coast, we firmly believed in choosing Dr. Meng, and immediately started the preliminary work. Dr. Meng is a cheerful and highly thoughtful doctor who can patiently explain highly professional knowledge to patients in easy-to-understand language. I strongly believe that IVF is not just dependent on hormonal drugs, but a complex process that combines physical and psychological states. During the year-long IVF process, I always felt that Dr. Meng put my feelings and needs first. The warm atmosphere made me feel like I became a friend of Dr. Meng and her team. They designed my cycle plan professionally and patiently, relieved my anxiety, answered my confusion, avoided unnecessary waste in drug use to save the expense. I am very grateful to Dr. Meng for suggesting that I add another egg retrieval before implantation, which not only relieves the stress caused by the lack of blastocysts, but also creates the possibility for the second child in the future. Facts have proved that this plan is very suitable for my situation and needs. I would like to thank Dr. Meng, she always sent warm greetings to me when I was confused and vulnerable. It was her excellent professional skills that made this beautiful thing a reality.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?
