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. Aline Ketefian is a] Wonderful doctor and extremely kind and professional. She explained all the procedures, and was very thorough with her treatment. If I had only seen her each visit I think it would have made a big different. Wish the treatment had worked. Only real problem was seeing so many different doctors due to the amount of visits, and the location was very stressful to get to due to the hours she could see me and traffic.
There are a lot of doctors and patients [at USC]. They can only really see you in the morning which is the worst time due to traffic and it's very stressful to get there. I often would have to wait a long time for my appointment. You don't get to see your doctor as often as you would like due to the amount of patients and doctors. But they are very kind and professional, just a little stressful...[Dr. Aline Ketefian is a] Wonderful doctor and extremely kind and professional.
