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. Cain] seemed nice, but there was an instance when I messaged her through my message portal online, and she replied back with something that didn't make any sense. I later found out she had mistaken me for another patient. I was not happy, and that is when I chose to see another doctor...I was diagnosed with POF (premature ovarian failure), so I was told that doing a medicated cycle would not be helpful. Dr. Kain monitored me for follicle development and we did timed intercourse. No results to speak of. I had very poor follicle development.
[Sanford Fertility and Reproductive Medicine] Seems like a nice place. Very rarely did I see other people in the waiting room. And they have a no child policy which I was grateful for.

Dr. Hansen is very knowledgeable, and definitely has a lot of experience. Overall, I think he is good at what he does. But he didn't seem to want to think outside the box for our situation. To a certain extent, I think he was trying to protect us financially, but we wanted a child more than anything and were willing to pay for it.... After a retrieval, I wished he would have come talk to me (and not just my husband) to let me know how it had gone.
This [Sanford Fertility and Reproductive Medicine] is the only clinic in the area that does ART -- so options are limited. I think the doctors are good at what they do, but we had significant issues with billing. For one cycle we overpaid nearly $7000, and had to fight with the clinic to get it back. We had similar issues on subsequent cycles, but because of this experience I refused to prepay. They would have never brought it to our attention if I hadn't caught the discrepancy between our EOBs and clinic statements. So watch this, as it can happen.

He [Dr. Keith Hansen] was the one who called me with the news that we couldn't move forward with an embryo transfer since the embryos didn't fully develop. He was empathetic and even stayed on the phone with me while I had an emotional breakdown. He talked me through it and advised we can still try again or think about donor eggs. Every time we mee with him he was upbeat and positive.
They [the nursing staff at Sanford] were awesome! They answered all my questions, returned my calls and emails with in same day.

He has compassion. He does not see you every time- just for consults and then his NPs do the rest.
No one went out of their way to be nice or make sure I knew the plans...they want to get in and get out to finish their day.
How was your experience with Keith Hansen at Sanford Fertility & Reproductive Medicine?
he has compassion. he does not see you every time- just for consults and then his NPs do the rest. But then he gets to charge you another consult when you are "finished" with that phase of treatments- like we did IUI then after that didn't work we have to pay 600 dollars for another consult to discuss IVF (which we had initially discussed ivf after iui if it didn't work).
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Keith Hansen at Sanford Fertility & Reproductive Medicine?
overall we had a good experience, but we are still in the process and going to be starting ivf- at another facility since their numbers are not good.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Keith Hansen at Sanford Fertility & Reproductive Medicine?
I barely was seen by Dr. HAnsen himself. mostly seen by his nurse practitioners. I felt as though they made me feel less like a number than a human- but they are still a doctors office and this is routine for them- they want to get in and get out to finish their day. the nurses at the office were less warm and fuzzy, and the secretaries (better now) but in 2013 when we started the treatment, they were not helpful and very grumpy.

Dr. Hansen retrieved 10 eggs, two were fractured and not usable for IVF. He used ICSI to inseminate 8 eggs. Two high quality, 5 day embryos were transferred. One implanted. None of the other embryos were of good enough quality to freeze.

He [Dr. Hansen] was Nice, told jokes, made you feel comfortable. listened to what are concerns were. We never had a bad experience with him. Explained procedures, what was happening while he was doing the procedures. He gave us options after IVF failed...Carefully explained everything with us. didn't treat us like just another patient....Just basic Ivf procedures. Medications didnt get adjusted. My body was doing what it was suppose to.
The clinics [Sanford] strengths were they were friendly, accessible, and easy to make appointments. Their Weaknesses would be calling you were put on hold or someone had to call you back. Receptionist were nice and friendly, after you've been their a few times they knew your name, talked extra with you, they kind of became like friends...nursing staff was nice, easily accessible to answer our questions and concerns.

Success w/ Doc Not sure
[Dr. Tiffany Von Wald] has been amazing to work with! She is so kind and caring and cares what you have to say! She always took the time to listen to our concerns and knew how to help us...when we first walked in knew who I was as an individual she knew all about my past and everything. I felt like I had been seeing her my entire life. She was always willing to listen and help us out. She is beyond amazing...We used letrozole for all of my rounds but one and menopure shots about 4 of those and the trigger shot.
This clinic [Sanford Fertility and Reproductive Medicine] probably has weakness but I have not experienced any! Every time I go in I am treated with respect and kindness. I honestly love going to see them. Even if I get bad news. The receptionist knows me by name and always remembers things we talked about like two weeks ago...The other day I absolutely needed to be seen so we could do iui this round. Due to the weather I wasn’t able to make it. Katie made sure I could get an ultrasound in Mitchell and set up a video chat with my doctor.

Since insurance doesn’t cover infertility I had lots of lab bills, ultrasound and office visit bills. I had a hsg done and they didn’t cover any of that. Medicine such as shot was crazy
