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.

Open minded, kind and professional are qualities I would ascrbe to Dr Herbert. ... It was gratifying that he was willing to use a new procedure that limited or most injections and relies instead on vaginal suppositories and oral meds to prep me as the recipient of the donor egg. This was an approach that has been very successful in the UK and I wanted to try it and avoid all the injections. It worked! Herbert had no ego around holding on to his own approach but did his own research and went forward with me in this novel approach with great success.
Really liked working with the donor coordinator [at Pacific Fertility Center] at the time and she helped us arrange a meeting with the donor which she facilitated. Process was seamless. Cannot remember any problems that stand out.... If you are using a donor egg ask him about approaching it using suppositories vs injections!!!... t was gratifying that he was willing to use a new procedure that limited or most injections and relies instead on vaginal suppositories and oral meds to prep me as the recipient of the donor egg.
