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.

be prepared to implement treatment right away rather than spending a considerable amount of time thinking through what you want to do. Dr. Montville and his staff are very ready to start treatment immediately, and if you're not sure you're ready to move forward, you could feel somewhat rushed to make a decision...I have not been educated about this approach [Eset Approach].
The nursing staff [at Tennessee Fertility Institute] are very positive, knowledgeable, and helpful...The IUI was $1200, and the medications were about $70-$140 depending on the dosage...I am overall satisfied with this clinic. I do find it frustrating that they're only open Monday-Thursday. It would be very helpful if they were open on Fridays. I appreciate their prompt responses on the patient portal online communication platform. They are understanding and will often work around scheduling conflicts and the inevitable unpredictability of fertility concerns.
How was your experience with Christopher Montville at Tennessee Fertility Institute?
Dr. Montville is newer to this practice, and I prefer him over the doctor who I saw previously (Dr. Donna Session). I didn't feel that Dr. Session had adequate listening skills, and she didn't educate me on the procedures or conditions as much as I would have liked. Dr. Montville's interactions with us have been much more thorough and tailored to what we want to know and do.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christopher Montville at Tennessee Fertility Institute?
I would advise them to be prepared to implement treatment right away rather than spending a considerable amount of time thinking through what you want to do. Dr. Montville and his staff are very ready to start treatment immediately, and if you're not sure you're ready to move forward, you could feel somewhat rushed to make a decision.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christopher Montville at Tennessee Fertility Institute?
Dr. Montville's eye contact, tone of voice, and listening skills are very personable. I am thankful for his patience in thoroughly explaining conditions and procedures as well. He listens to my concerns, my husband's concerns, and gives detailed, insightful answers.
Describe the protocols Christopher Montville used in your cycles at Tennessee Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I used letrozole with timed intercourse for 2-3 cycles with no pregnancies resulting from it. I then went on several months of norethindrone to keep my endometriosis symptoms suppressed while we figured out next steps. I then took letrozole, used an HSG trigger shot, and had an IUI with my husband's sperm. This did not result in a positive pregnancy.

I have mainly been in contact with Kelly for the IUI procedures and she has been so wonderful! She has compassion and empathy towards the patients and has went out of her way to answer/find the answer to every tedious question that I have.

Dr. Montville is easily accessible and explained everything to me in detail. I received an update on a calendar so I knew when to start taking femara and when to us LH test strips as well as when to call...We were planning on trying IUI but I had to call it off after ovulation day had some meetings rescheduled at work so I couldn't get away. I took femara for a few days and tested LH daily with urine test strips. I didn't have any side effects from femara.
[Tennessee Fertility Institute] It's the only clinic I've been to but I've never felt like I was just a number. Any time I have been in the waiting room I was alone or one other couple was there. I generally receive quick responses from the online system which is the portal...IUI is 2,000 but I had to get an HSG prior and various tests. The total of those with office visits factored in was about $1000.

Consultation with him [Dr. Montville] was great, I had to go by myself due to my husband’s deployment which made me nervous. He immediately recognized the different circumstance we were in, along with the stress of trying to conceive. He made sure to write everything down and explained everything well. He also made sure to ask what we wanted from all this, how we felt about everything and any hesitations or restrictions we had.
In comparison to other facilities in the area that I researched and spoke with, all of our costs at TFI were clearly explained to us and within the normal pricing of the area clinics. Some costs were even less than other clinics....The nursing staff were all welcoming and so sweet. They were very organized and on top of everything. I even left forms with them that needed to be filled out (I expected this would take a while) when I followed up with them a few days later I found out they had already completed and submitted everything.
How was your experience with Christopher Montville at Tennessee Fertility Institute?
During consultation he exceeded my expectations. I tried not to have my hopes up because sometimes the first doctor isn’t always a good fit, but thankfully he was. He did a great job reading me and understanding my situation and the way I needed the information presented. I don’t like sugar coating but I do want someone with a calming and caring approach. He met all of that. Very straightforward and great at explaining but also genuinely cared.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christopher Montville at Tennessee Fertility Institute?
Go for the consultation and see if he is a good match. You won’t really know until you meet with him and his staff.

Describe the protocols Christopher Montville used in your cycles at Tennessee Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We have not started any treatments or cycles yet but are planned for IUI next month with medication and trigger shot.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Tennessee Fertility Institute.
The nursing staff were all welcoming and so sweet. They were very organized and on top of everything. I even left forms with them that needed to be filled out (I expected this would take a while) when I followed up with them a few days later I found out they had already completed and submitted everything. I was very impressed and it was nice to know that I had people supporting me and on top of things, it alleviated a lot of my stress.
Describe your experience with Tennessee Fertility Institute.
The clinic was very clean and calming, not a lot of noise or craziness which was nice. I have no completed anything other than my blood work and consultation, so I only have those areas to speak on. I can only assume the remaining office areas and procedural rooms are the same.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christopher Montville at Tennessee Fertility Institute.
In comparison to other facilities in the area that I researched and spoke with, all of our costs at TFI were clearly explained to us and within the normal pricing of the area clinics. Some costs were even less than other clinics. And honestly, I have been to another clinic in the area for a semen analysis for my husband- I would even be willing to pay higher prices to come here and be treated like a person and cared for rather than that other local facility.

He sat down with us and explained every plan and every result. He made us feel like people and he understood the pain and struggles we were feeling while going through our journey. We really appreciate that he truly listened to us....For my egg retrieval, Dr. Montville put me on Manopur, gonal-f, cetrotide, novarel, and progesterone injections. They resulted in 4 eggs total retrieved and 3 total embryos. We transferred 1 embryo after a few days, which resulted in a positive pregnant test
Aside from the occasional longer wait time before an appointment, the clinic [TFI] runs like an well oiled machine. Everyone knows exactly what they’re supposed to do.... The nursing staff at this clinic was amazing! They were so good at what they do and they really showed compassion! We love them!... I always saw my doctor which is how a fertility clinic should be run! Weaknesses: since the patient population is growing, sometimes the wait time was a little long.
How was your experience with Christopher Montville at Tennessee Fertility Institute?
Just like I said in a previous section, Dr. Montville is such an amazing, warm, understanding, kind, and compassionate doctor! He was the very first of the 3 fertility specialist I’ve seen who truly made us feel like human!

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christopher Montville at Tennessee Fertility Institute?
I have seen a total of 3 fertility doctors and he was by far the best one who was truly emphatic with our situation. He sat down with us and explained every plan and every result. He made us feel like people and he understood the pain and struggles we were feeling while going through our journey. We really appreciate that he truly listened to us. He definitely has such a warm presence every time we went to visit him at the clinic. This is why I love going to Dr. Montville! Can’t wait to visit him again this year and hopefully get the result we’ve always dreamed of!
