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.

Almost all specialists are geniuses and know their stuff. But it's the level to which Dr. Wolf will share her expertise with the patient that's impressive. Further, she breaks it down to a understandable level for us and even pulls up articles on her computer to review with us.... Dr. Wolf calls you personally with certain results. I was impressed with the amount of time spent with the doctor in ADDITION to the support & nursing staff.
The clinic [University Reproductive Associates] is efficient. If you're going in for an appointment, you won't wait more than 20 minutes (I'm being conservative here; we've never waited more than 15). If you're doing the walk-in diagnostic visit, you'll be seen quickly. You may not see your personal doctor and nurse, but they're as personable as possible given that fact.... We've done diagnostics so far. About $1500-1700 out of pocket because of copays, coinsurance, and uncovered tests (especially for the one not planning to carry a baby)

Describe the protocols Susan Wolf used in your cycles at University Reproductive Associates (New Jersey Medical School) and their degree of success.
For diagnostics, timing is everything. You have to be very mindful of what stage of your cycle that you're on and go in early morning for testing. If that day comes on a weekend, be prepared to travel to Hasbrouck. If you don't drive it can be a pain. I guess if you don't mind paying for Uber, the travel to Hasbrouck should be fine.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at University Reproductive Associates (New Jersey Medical School).
We've only done diagnostics so far. So all I can say is that their amazing at saying good morning and finding veins.

Although we were ultimately unsuccessful in our quest to have a baby, I have always felt that Dr.McGovern was always there to help us to conceive. I felt he did everything to help us. He was thorough and always supported his reasoning with research.... The fresh transfer resulted in a pregnancy however it was an empty sac and ended up having a D&C. Dr. McGovern was very supportive and recommended genetic testing
Long monitoring waits but have found everyone [U Reproductive Associates] was very accommodating and helpful to us. They even worked with us in honoring old prices for genetic testing to help us. You see and get to know all the doctors during monitoring and have liked them all. Some were better communicators than others but overall was happy with my experience.... Andrea was my life saver. She was always there for my many questions and eased my anxieties.

Speak up and ask questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Peter McGovern at University Reproductive Associates (New Jersey Medical School)?
Even though there were many patients, I always felt like top priority-from the nurses to the phlebotomists to the doctors.
Describe the protocols Peter McGovern used in your cycles at University Reproductive Associates (New Jersey Medical School) and their degree of success.
Prior to even starting fertility treatments, I had a polyp removal which was found during the HSG. I have done three IUi with letrozole protocols which were unsuccessful. At that point, we moved on to IVF. We started the stim medications and planned on a fresh transfer. The first retrieval we got 18 eggs (half ICSI, half IVF) and ultimately ended up with 6 embroyos. The fresh transfer resulted in a pregnancy however it was an empty sac and ended up having a D&C. Dr. McGovern was very supportive and recommended genetic testing which we decided against due to financial reasons so we moved forward with our first frozen transfer using estrogen protocol. This transfer resulted in a negative pregnancy test. At this pint, we tested our remaining four embroyos and had only one embroyo that was genetically viable. We transferred that embroyo which again failed. At this point, we were devastated and confused as to why a genetically viable embroyo failed. Dr. McGovern recommended an ERA to see when I was receptive which we did and came back as receptive. We completed our second retrieval which resulted in 28 eggs and 6 embroyos that were sent out for genetic testing. We ended up with 3 genetically viable embroyos. We transferred one using the estrogen protocol and again received negative results. At this point, we were crushed and confused. Dr.McGovern offered two suggestions: do another retrieval and transfer my genetically tested embroyos on day 5 since that was my only positive pregnancy or use letrozole protocol/trigger shot. At this time, we also met with another practice and decided to go with the second option as that was what was recommended by them as well. We also transferred our two remaining embroyos as one was not great quality. Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful for the fifth time. At this point, we decided it was best to make a change, however, not due to anything Dr. McGovern did or the practice. I felt they always had my best interest at heart and tried everything in their power to help me. :

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at University Reproductive Associates (New Jersey Medical School).
It was a bit stressful if you were not one of the first ones there. The monitoring times were short (1 hour) and mondays always seemed to be the worst. It was first come, first serve and there was usually a line waiting at the door to get in.

About $3000 for genetic testing. About $1000 for ERA testing and $700 a year for embroyo storage

Doctors [at U Repro Associates] are good. Nurses are not very knowledgeable in comparison to other clinics.... Nurses seems more like technician and not RN....
