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.

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. Sasson made me feel comfortable and a part of his medical family. He took my concerns into consideration and easily made them a part of my treatment plan. He knows each of his unique patients/families. I was impressed with his thorough review of my medical history and infertility issues... is very kind, welcoming and knowledgeable. He doesn’t just through medical terms at you but he breaks things down for you medically and personally so you can make sound decisions. He is able to tell you the good, bad, and unpleasant outcomes of your treatment using a thorough review of your medical history, ivf treatment plan and medical comparisons to similar fertility patients.
All of the nursing and care staff [at Shady Grove Fertility] are extremely nice, helpful and very informative. My personal nurse Lisa is like a friend of the family. She is only one call or email away to guide me through medications, answer questions and make me feel comfortable...The clinic is very modern and clean. It is in a great location. The office is always able to accommodate your schedule and get you the appointments you need once you start/are in your treatment cycle.

She [Dr. O'Brien] is a terrific doctor, very detailed and answers your questions in a no nonsense matter, I really appreciate knowing the process and what is involved in the procedures, she was great in predicting what is best for me and so far it has been great...We tried first with Clomid and IUI, which was unsuccessful, due to my age we switched over to a minimal IVF protocol which was not good enough for me so we cancelled the cycle, the next time meds were adjusted and I was able to produce 5 eggs
Christine [nurse at Shady Grove Fertility] is the best, she answers all my questions promptly and is very compassionate person...24500 for the multi cycle program, I was not approved for the risk free program, roughly $7000 for the medications...It is not the best place for people who need their hand held, going through IVF is tough and difficult,...there are a lot of people working there so don’t expect to see the same face every time

He explained the different courses and provided his input on the best one, but in the end it was my decision to make and he supported it... recommended IVF due to tube blockage...He recommended eSET due to my age and the risk of a multiple pregnancy...The first consultation he sat down with my husband and I for an hour and reviewed all my medical documentations and explained the process and plan.
She [nurse at Shady Grove Fertility] frequently checked in using the patient portal and answered all my questions...has a risk program for IVF. With medications and the program probability around 25-30,000...Strengths: patient, understanding, sensitive. The doctor and all the nurses were wonderful. Weaknesses: financial department. They did not work with me on money I was getting from my husband’s work. It was very frustrating and made me feel like a number. However, the care the doctor and nurses provided is why I am still with my clinic.

Began [with Dr. Jason Bromer] using Bravelle, Menopur, Estrace and others. I think this is normal protocol. Then we switched to Menopur, blood thinners, steroids, leuprolide, etc...He is wonderful! He explained every procedure. Would call us the day before, day of and day after to make sure we were ok or had questions...He has a beautiful bedside manner. He’s compassionate and listens well. He explains everything so that you understand. He and his wife have gone through the process. He’s just down to earth. No question is off limits. He remembers past concerns, etc.
I lucked out with both primary nurses [at Shady Grove]. They are wonderful...Only once was I not called with results and it was an honest mistake...They are very organized. You don’t always have to monitor there. Or you can monitor and other Shady Grove offices. They are thorough and welcoming. Nothing bad to say. I love it there. They do require monitoring appointments and I recommend making in advance

Always single at shady grove. Their studies have shown if the transfer is goin to result in pregnancy, it will do so regardless of quantity of embryo. So if you transfer 2, and get pregnant, you will have multiples.

Scheduling is easy. The staff [at Shady Grove] are friendly and sweet. The lab nurses are wonderful and understanding (I have a needle phobia). I'm not a fan of Ms. Trumble; she performed my SSG. She started talking about IVF as if we had already chosen it, which we hadn't. She was a bit aggressive performing the procedure, which resulted in days of symptoms for me afterwards.

We are still early in our treatment with Dr. Sasson, however, he has given us hope that we didn’t receive at our previous clinic. He’s very blunt, but I like that. He gets straight to the point and is prepared to tackle the battles with us! He has met with us a few times, always for at least an hour! We never feel rushed... His protocol for our upcoming IVF cycle is high medication stims in order to make me produce as many eggs as possible. Our previous clinic always shot for a few eggs.
Shadygrove has not let me down yet. They’re attentive, organized and always seem to know me. I never feel like just a number there! They also have a wonderful shared risk program that makes me feel so confident in my desire to switch to them.... [Nurse] Chrissy is so sweet.

Dr. Sasson is kind, gentle, and caring. He truly wants to help get his patients to a positive outcome. He is very honest and timely with all of his communication. During my initial consultation of 2 hours he took the time to explain things and to help me fully understand my treatment plan. He truly is an amazing human being....He used an antagonist protocol. We did one egg retrieval, PGS testing, and three frozen embryo transfers resulting in 2 live births.
The entire staff [Shady Grove Fertility] including the receptionist were extremely kind, friendly, and compassionate. Some visits were difficult for me, but I knew that I would always have a good experience at the clinic. They truly showed their support.... Each visit takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish. The waiting rooms never overcrowded. You are assigned a nurse coordinator that is always accessible even on nights and weekends. You truly are treated like a human being.

Sometimes felt like a number and sometimes felt like a human. Excellent doctor[Dr. Arthur Sagoskin] but not overly warm and fuzzy...He is knowledgeable, and experienced. I trusted him and his recommendations. He also listened to my concerns. He was conservative with my treatment and made sure I was comfortable with decisions, especially as we moved further along in the process...I had several nurses over the years , there seemed to be frequent turnover or changes. Lindsay was the one I worked with the most. She was very nice and great in person but her emails were often unclear or she didn't adequately answer my questions. More so with IVF.

Dr. Bromer has done a wonderful job to listen and answer any and all questions or concerns we've had about ethical issues concerning our future babies.... He is very thorough and treats you with respect. No question is a dumb question and he is very compassionate. He has shown us over and over that he cares about our situation and desires to help us grow our family is the best and safest way possible.
My primary nurse [at Shady Grove] is not the most thorough with details but she is nice.... Expensive as we have no insurance coverage but the Shared Risk plan is helpful for IVF with a guarantee.... We wanted to start out slow with the least invasive options and work our way up to IVF, which we are now currently doing. He was patient and helpful to work through each phase and help us get the most for our money and time. We did 3 timed intercourse cycles with clomid and injectibles, 3 IUI's with injectibles, and now we're getting ready to start our 3rd IVF cycle with our last frozen embryo.

Dr Widra is an experienced professional, willing to take older women who normally have a slower chance of success. I found this aspect in him and in his clinic worthy of recognition because I went to another clinic before where you can sense that the doctor was not willing to sacrifice his success rates by taking a woman over 43. He was very clear on my expectations and agreed to accompany my desire to become a single mother at an old age (44 years old). He and his team are on top of the latest research and he doesnt set unrealistic expectations.
Shady Grove it a big clinic and the relationship with the patient is lead by the nurse. The Doctor sees you when he needs to diagnose and follows the treatment providing feedback through the nurse....well functioning machine for fertility treatments....We did an IVF cycle and then we decided to follow up with IUIs because at 45 years old the success rates were similar and the cost and impact on the body was more manageable for me with IUI than with IVF (and IVF was covered by my health insurance)

As this procedure is already delicate and somewhat stressful for my wife and I, Dr. Moon remained engaged, very attentive and absolutely patient with us...We've only reached the point of me taking the Clomid for my low sperm count.
The clinic [Shady Grove] first of all was very clean and smelled good. The staff was very professional and friendly. It didn't feel like a fertility clinic at all. There were so many gorgeous pictures of precious babies in the clinic that it made you feel like everyone in the staff is rooting for every single client to give life....Every time we had questions or sent emails to Katie she would get back to us right away and remained engaged with us.

We did 3 rounds of timed intercourse starting with Letrazole and ended with Follistim. I had previously taken Clomid for 2 cycles with my gynecologist. I did not ovulate on my own. My lining was thin on Letrazole so we switched to Follistim for the third cycle which greatly improved my lining. I also used an Ovidrel trigger, progesterone and estradiol suppositories each cycle.
