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.

[at UCSD] Parking is paid, which is inconvenient. Wait time are OK, sometimes less than 5 minutes, sometimes more than 15. There is no WIFI down in the lower level of the building, so bring something to read or do. It wasn't usually difficult to get someone on the phone, and they doctors and coordinators usually got back to questions within a day.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sanjay Agarwal at UCSD?
He wasn't incredibly personable or warm. I felt like he had a large patient load and I often felt like I was asking too many questions and keeping him from other patients.
Describe your experience with your nurse at UCSD. (Assigned nurse: Amanda )
I always received a thorough and quick response from Amanda. She was very easy to work with.
What specific things went wrong at UCSD?
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
  • Scheduled the wrong procedure
How was your experience with Sanjay Agarwal at UCSD?
I appreciated that Dr. Agarwal presented the options to me and didn't push one or the other. He seemed to grasp how difficult the decisions were for us to make. One thing that really was off putting was that he didn't share with me what certain imaging results were and didn't seem to link together multiple tests that may be of concern.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sanjay Agarwal at UCSD?
Make sure to do your own research and follow-up with a lot of questions.
Describe the protocols Sanjay Agarwal used in your cycles at UCSD and their degree of success.
We did one IUI, then a laparoscopy (based on my wishes). He said we could go straight to IVF, but said it might be good to try IUI first.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sanjay Agarwal at UCSD.
The IUI was about $300, plus cost of meds and blood work. All together it was about $700. Insurance didn't cover anything.

It’s kinda of a hard place to find but they [UCSD] do have valet parking. During my first visit everyone was so nice and they were super understanding that my husband wasn’t able to be there due to being active duty. They made sure to explain his test and my test and what to expect....They are all super compassionate and they understand what you’re going through. They explain the procedures very well and they make sure you understand every recap of the visit.
