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.

Describe the protocols Alice Rhoton-Vlasak used in your cycles at UF Health Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
With my IUI’s, she was always sure to explain everything thoroughly and made it clear that if we were producing too many eggs, that for my own health, we would need to cancel. She’s always focused on the safety of her patients first and foremost. After seeing how my body responded, she adjusted my dosage and watched me very closely as to make sure not to overstimulate me.

Very pleasant and I feel very confident that with her help I can eventually get pregnant. She [Dr. Rhotan-Vlasak] explained all options and outcomes in great detail....Before coming to Alice, I had already had blood work, HSG test, ultrasound, and my husband had semin analysis. All pointed to unexplained infertility. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 2.5 years. We decided to come to Alice to take the next steps. She started by doing an ultrasound while on my period to clear me to start clomid.
Only weakness [of UF Health Reproductive Medicine] was getting a hold of the nurses since all callls go through a call center and instead of connecting me, they would leave them a message. All staff were very kind and encouraging! They do have a weekend crew Incase your ovulation occurs after hours which is very helpful....Nurses were very compassionate and worked hard to make sure I could be fit in when I called to confirm ovulation.

My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 2.5 years. We decided to come to Alice to take the next steps. She started by doing an ultrasound while on my period to clear me to start clomid. I had blood work to confirm ovulation and IUI the day after I tested positive for ovulation in urine. I did not become pregnant this first round of IUI.

She [Dr. Rhoton-Vlasak] is so kind and understanding. I never feel rushed with her and I feel like she encourages questions and wants to give you as much information as needed...When she did my HSG--she walked me through every step and helped me understand what was going on...We first did an entire evaluation and she determined we were unexplained fertility. She gave us our options and we decided to wait a couple of months to do anything. Then we started the first step, 50mg of clomid and IUI. We are currently in the tww. If it didn't work we will try 2 more times.
They [staff at UF Health Reproductive Medicine] show compassion right when you walk through the door. They are there to help you in any way needed. Organized, clean, and understanding. Makes it easier when you have nice office staff. If you have questions you forgot to ask the doctor they will gladly get you a nurse to answer anything...They never called us to tell us about my husbands sperm analysis. We got the info at our meeting but we were wanting to know before hand.

Melinda [nurse]was great. I work night shift and was unable to get her calls sometimes. She gave me her personal phone number to contact her if I needed her. She called everyday she said she would go updates. ... Everyone [at UF Health Repo Med] seems organized. It’s easy to check in and out. I had maybe a 5 minute wait when waiting for appointments. Everything flowed smoothly and seamlessly. Everyone was friendly and knows you by name.
