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.

[Dr. Herndon was] Upfront and direct from the beginning that transferring one is the most responsible and safe-especially PGT-A embryo. Provided statistics, research and rationale...takes the time to answer any questions, discuss concerns and will reach out via phone when needed...he knows us personally and takes the time to say hello and briefly chat...He provides a lot of information, described a general overview of fertility, infertility treatment options available (pros and cons to all) and specifics associated with our case as it continues to unfold.
A strength of this clinic [University Reproductive Care] is definitely their CNM who is the provider I see most often during monitoring and saw for early testing. She is incredibly kind, compassionate and has a sense of humor. While seen less often the other RNs have been absolutely wonderful going over protocol schedules, answering questions and having open clear lines of communication for next steps. The RN I have had for both of retrievals is also a highlight. She remembered us both, our conversations and was able to help put us at ease.
How was your experience with Christopher Herndon at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington?
Dr. Herndon is calm, detail-oriented, trustworthy and compassionate. He provides a lot of information, described a general overview of fertility, infertility treatment options available (pros and cons to all) and specifics associated with our case as it continues to unfold. I sometimes don't catch everything during an appointment so don’t be afraid to ask questions. Even if they arise later after an appointment, ask. A plus of the clinic is there tends to be a scribe so you can get detailed information after each appointment to review. His communication style tends to be direct yet compassionate. My experiences so far have included personal attention, he remembers us, says hello and chats when seen around the building (getting bloodwork, elevator, checking in). It really feels like we are people, not just a case or number. I’ve had several phone calls from him outside of clinic hours or when he’s not in the clinic to go over concerns or results. Dr. Herndon and the whole clinic staff are well versed in trauma informed care and willing to take time to explain procedures, exams, protocols and willing to collaborate to modify if needed.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christopher Herndon at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington?
Be prepared, which is advice I would give regardless of which doctor you see. Don't be afraid to ask questions but really listen to the answer.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christopher Herndon at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington?
Dr. Herndon takes the time to answer any questions, discuss concerns and will reach out via phone when needed. Whenever we’ve run into him around the building, whether checking in at the front desk or in the elevator he knows us personally and takes the time to say hello and briefly chat.

Describe your experience with University Reproductive Care - University of Washington.
As a small clinic you are less a number or chart and have more individual interactions with staff. This includes checking in at lab or clinic and seeing the same MA, RNs and MDs. The process is already stressful so when I check in and the front desk staff and MAs are excited to see me and know me it helps. Also, everything is located within the same building so you don’t need to go elsewhere for anything unless it is a weekend for bloodwork, and the main hospital is within a 5 min drive. One weakness is I haven’t always understood what was covered by insurance, why costs have fluctuated and have needed to call two separate billing departments to resolve some billing errors. The hospital and physicians are billed separately. Although the clinic is moving to another floor, they currently are located on the same floor as Pediatrics and Women’s health/OB-GYN. Obviously this is less than ideal for a fertility clinic location.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington.
Monitoring appointments were generally scheduled between 8am and 10am with labs done before for same day results. I had a couple of them scheduled at the beginning of my stimulation cycle and then each day they’d be scheduled around 2pm for the following day.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christopher Herndon at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington.

Dr. Neal-Perry was straight forward in her assessment and recommended treatment plan that we could easily understand. She reviewed our history and goals in great detail and helped us understand how different treatments and our diagnosis affect pregnancy success. We never felt rushed and always felt that our concerns were of paramount interest to her and her staff.
The nursing staff was just great. Responded to all of my inquiries and helped me navigate the UW system....Strengths: location and onsite parking, pharmacy and blood. There is an onsite financial counselor who helps you with insurance coverage. Weakness: front desk reception seemed a bit disorganized and I had to wait to check in.... You may have to wait for a visit to see Dr. Neal-Perry but she is worth the wait.
How was your experience with Genevieve Neal-Perry at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington?

Dr. Herndon is a skilled doctor and obviously is very dedicated and cares very much for his patients. His communication sometimes leaves something to be desired, however. I often have felt like I didn’t understand what was next or the reason for a delay. It’s possible, but sometimes difficult, to get the answers we need from him.... One huge positive about him is that he’ll take all the time you need and never seems rushed. This sometimes also means he’s running very late so be prepared for that.
Generally, all staff [University Reproductive Care] except financial were responsive and quickly fixed any errors, which is what really matters.... The clinic’s strengths are its clinical staff. It’s biggest weakness is the financial counseling. I could write pages of complaints about this woman - she misled us, outright lied, and was condescending while doing it. She has cost us thousands of dollars and many, many hours - and we were only able to begin recouping the money by moving above her to hospital administration.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christopher Herndon at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington?
Be sure to directly ask all of your questions. One huge positive about him is that he’ll take all the time you need and never seems rushed. This sometimes also means he’s running very late so be prepared for that. I found this to be a net positive because I have a lot of questions and anxiety, so needed his time, and a flexible job, so waiting wasn’t usually a huge problem.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christopher Herndon at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington?
The clinic itself is small, but part of a huge university medical system.
Describe the protocols Christopher Herndon used in your cycles at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington and their degree of success.
For retrieval, we started with a regular IVF protocol (short suppression with birth control, then about ten days of stims) and increased doses as necessary. For transfer, we did a short period of suppression with birth control followed by estrogen and then the dreaded progesterone in oil. We have only had to do one of each because we have had great luck/results.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington.
The nursing staff is overall great. There are a few that don’t really seem to know what’s going on which led to some awkward moments but overall we felt very well-cared-for by the nurses.
Describe your experience with University Reproductive Care - University of Washington.
The clinic’s strengths are its clinical staff. It’s biggest weakness is the financial counseling. I could write pages of complaints about this woman - she misled us, outright lied, and was condescending while doing it. She has cost us thousands of dollars and many, many hours - and we were only able to begin recouping the money by moving above her to hospital administration. It stands out as a dark spot in what is already an emotionally and financially devastating process. She alone is enough to recommend against this clinic unless you are 100% certain you’re cash pay for everything anyway. She’ll still be rude, I’m sure, but at least she won’t cost you money.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christopher Herndon at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington.
Retrieval with PGS was cheaper than other clinics. Other treatments were comparable except FET which was more expensive.
Describe Christopher Herndon's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington.
We had PGS-normal embryos and he made clear that he believed transferring one was really the only responsible option, especially considering my medical status. We agreed so there was no issue.

Strength - she [Dr. Neal- Perry] explains the medical aspect of hormones, and how drugs work with your system very well. I did appreciate that.... Cons - while she took time to listen, it felt that I was just a number. And a number that wouldn’t yield any result. We did the first IUI and while it was negative, there was still hope and I wish I had felt some of that from the doctor....

Strength - she explains the medical aspect of hormones, and how drugs work with your system very well. I did appreciate that. However, I had a pretty strong understand already of how things worked, based on my previous medical history. Cons - while she took time to listen, it felt that I was just a number. And a number that wouldn’t yield any result. We did the first IUI and while it was negative, there was still hope and I wish I had felt some of that from the doctor. I understand they need to be honest with you based on your results, and I know that’s why my experience was the way it was.

Dr. Neal-Perry is very knowledgeable and calm during the whole process. She made me feel like a human not just a patient or teaching case.

She had empathy and a great bed side manner...She took all that information, then in a separate appointment will give a plan of action to treat the infertility.
[nurse of University Reproductive Care] They are compassionate and [didn't] make me feel weird about my dumb questions...Aside from the fact they can run late with their appointments sometimes I have not had a bad experience yet.

Very to the point...I really appreciated her candidness for testing and she jumped right in during the consultation and we did a physical and sonogram right then...So far I have done an Hsg and sis along with estridol fsh and other bloodwork. She also ordered blood work and testing for my husband...
[The nurses at University Reproductive Care are] Very friendly and laughed and joked alot to ease the tension before the doctor arrived...I wish that the reproductive urologist and endocrinologist could see us at the same time but I don’t know if that's sone anywhere. But each time we were seen quickly not a lot of waiting. The weak point i found is that getting an appointment is difficult last minute they have to be scheduled well in advance.
How was your experience with Genevieve Neal-Perry at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington?
She listened and conversed with us with a level of understanding that was not to technical. When we left i was informed on the next steps and stages outlined clearly for our next visit. When we returned we saw a different physician but she went out of her way to make sure I knew who we were to meet and offered to reschedule if I were not comfortable seeing someone different for the next follow up. I really appreciated her candidness for testing and she jumped right in during the consultation and we did a physical and sonogram right then since it was covered bu my insurance.

The dr had his resident talk with us first and gather our story and build a report. When we met with him he [Dr. Christopher Herndon] hardly introduced himself and then blasted us with information. He talked at us. He made assumptions. When my husband would attempt to ask a question he would cut him off.... UW is a teaching hospital, which is fantastic. However, this enabled the Dr. to appear to not take an interest in our case, our history or our story. He was extremely clinical when speaking with us and left building a report to his resident.
The clinic [University Reproductive Care- UW-Seattle] was cold and unwelcoming. This includes the staff and the building. I had an ARNP do some of my testing and she was the only person in the office that I would call wonderful. She was attentive and explained every step of the process to me....

The dr had his resident talk with us first and gather our story and build a report. When we met with him he hardly introduced himself and then blasted us with information. He talked at us. He made assumptions. When my husband would attempt to ask a question he would cut him off.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christopher Herndon at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington?
UW is a teaching hospital, which is fantastic. However, this enabled the Dr. to appear to not take an interest in our case, our history or our story. He was extremely clinical when speaking with us and left building a report to his resident.

Dr. Neal-Perry is conscientious, warm, thoughtful and spent time with me when I needed it. ... Very honest, thoughtful, caring. I appreciated the extra time she has spent with me over the phone, especially since I don’t live in the area where the clinic is. ... She does use mini Hgc as one of the injectables. It was hard for me to get. ... I don’t remember the terminology for the protocols she used.
I was a bit concerned about turnover but have basically been very happy with the care we've received. It's a peaceful environment [U of WA Repro Care] and everyone is caring and helpful. ... Occasionally I had to clarify information in my emails that seemed conflicting. ... I think that most of the team is wonderful. ... The nursing staff changed a lot while I was a patient. They were exceptional the first two cycles. I found them less organized and diligent the last time.

Success w/ Doc Not sure
Dr Yu is amazing, she called during her own time to explain my test results, making sure that I really did understand what this meant for the future, what it meant for my cycle and treatment now. She even continued to monitor my test results when everyone else assumed I wasn’t where I should be.. While my first IUI was in progress, Dr. Yu wanted to continue to monitor my status through my cycle. It was nice to be treated like a human instead of how most patients might be treated based on “by the book” expectations
I’m glad that the nursing staff here [at Univ of WA-Reproductive Medicine] is so caring. They are kind, they help me think of questions I maybe forgot that I even had. I appreciate that they are open on the weekend if your cycle decides that a weekend is when things are gonna be happening...

There was a clear effort to help me achieve a family.

Dr. C. Herndon is very thorough; we takes all the time needed to answer your questions and talk through what is next. He explains risks and tells you what his suggestion would be but leaves the final decision up to the patient. Our interactions with him 1:1 have been fantastic...[he] does not recommend transferring multiple embryos due to increased risk.
[University Reproductive Care- UW] The Doctors, Medical Assistants, and scheduling staff are great. If you can speak to one of the those employees, you typically get all your questions answered quickly!
