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. Schmidt is perhaps too optimistic in the way she presents treatment and we only discussed negative outcomes when we crossed that bridge...Dr. Schmidt is a very warm, friendly person with excellent bedside manner. She's very optimistic with fertility treatment. She will show you what you want to know and will disclose your numbers if you ask...For my very first treatment, Dr. Schmidt said it's the Clomid Challenge and didn't explain what that meant in terms of being prepared to start fertility treatment, eventhough I understood my follicles were being monitored. It ended up being a rush to have sperm in the office ready for IUI. Subsequent IUIs and IVF went more smoothly after I knew what to expect.
Since OFRM is such a small clinic, you get very personalized treatment and responses from the staff. It might not be the best place if you eventually need an egg donor because it is a small practice unless you are willing to bring a donor in or select frozen donor eggs to use. It's a great place to go if you can use your own eggs...IUI procedure $700. IVF procedure with meds around $15,000. Insurance copays for all office visits and blood tests - extra.
