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.

I was prescribed heparin for my donor cycle [with Dr. Thomas Kosasa]. I became pregnant; however miscarried at 10 weeks. Doubled up on progesterone injections at 6 days past 5 day transfer due to bleeding...Dr. always pushed to transfer two embryos to increase odds...is kind hearted and values his work and cares about his patients... I sometimes felt like I had to repeat my questions and still wasn't satisfied. He is smart, compassionate and very positive but sometimes a man of little words which sometimes left me with questions unanswered or adequately answered.
The staff at Pacific IVF are very accomodating and compassionate. Lynnea [nurse] is trustworthy and took time to listen to our concerns and would address them honestly. She always responded to my needs and would give quality advice...$5,500 for FET (own eggs retrieved at another clinic and donor eggs) $15,500 for clinic fees associated with donor egg cycle.... All the nurses are seasoned and compassionate and personable.

The staff at Pacific IVF are very accomodating and compassionate. Lynnea is trustworthy and took time to listen to our concerns and would address them honestly.

Describe your experience with Pacific In Vitro Fertilization Institute.
The staff at IVF made always gave me world class treatment and were always quick to respond to our needs. All the nurses are seasoned and compassionate and personable. The clinic is very accomodating to your schedule and will make adjustments as needed. I preferred my primary doctor but was seen once by another Dr which resulted in a negative experience for me.
