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.

Dr. Plosker is very thorough, and compassionate. Our experience was overall great even though we didn’t end up with the results we had hoped for. At our meeting with Plosker to re-group and come up with another game plan to proceed with future IVF cycles he remaind very positive that he could still help us be parents, he was very patient to answer all of our questions, and even stated he took our case to his colleagues to help in the event he missed anything.
Strengths are that they [USF - Sarasota] are thorough, and knowledgeable. Overall they are fairly quick in response if you leave messages. Weaknesses are appointment wait times. Overall, the Dr’s, RN’s and staff have made this a great experience, and have continued to walk us through this journey....Leslie & Amanda we very kind and attentive.... Dr. Plosker makes you feel like he genuinely cares about you as a person, and makes you feel more than a dollar sign.

Describe the protocols Shayne Plosker used in your cycles at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology and their degree of success.
I was started on levothroxine 100mcg and provera 10mg. Prior to cycle. Once cycle was induced I started my Injectables Gonal-F 150 units, Menopur 75 units daily. I also had routine blood work and ultrasounds. During the second week I believe menopur was increase to 150units. Ganirelix 250 mcg was injected daily. Once eggs were mature I was given a trigger shot. Eggs were retrieved 48hrs later. Day of retrieval 8 eggs were retrieved, 6 fertilized properly via ICSI. To help manage pain I was given Tylenol-Codeine #3. On day 5 we only had 1 viable embryo that was biopsied and sent off for PGD testing. I was started on metformin 2-750 mg daily. Approximately, a month later I started estradiol 2 mg x 3 daily. About week prior to transfer started Crinone 8% Gel - 2x a day. Day of transfer I continued Estradiol regimen, and did Crinone 3x that day. After transfer continued Estradiol, and Crinone up until the point of miscarriage approximately 3 weeks after transfer.

Dr Plosker spent an hour with my husband and I the first time we met. He was open and honest about our chances of conceiving. He explained the different processes so that we u derstood and he made sure that we didn’t have any questions before we left.... He also kept finances in the picture which is important when you could be spending a lot of money.... I had three rounds of IUI. Two with clomid and one round with femara.
Most importantly they [USF IVF and Reproductive Endocrinology] are organized. You never wait on hold for that long. When you call they always have the answers and they know what the next step is. The only issue I had was with billing, they initially told me that my insurance does not cover IUI, and they billed me for the cycle. My insurance however did cover it and they prompty refunded me the money.
How was your experience with Shayne Plosker at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?
I have met with Dr. Plosker on 3 separate occasions. I have never felt rushed during a visit with him and he explained everything in detail. He also kept finances in the picture which is important when you could be spending a lot of money. He truly did seem to care about making our dream of becoming parents a reality.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shayne Plosker at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?

I had three rounds of IUI. Two with clomid and one round with femara. I switched to femara bc I was getting headaches from the clomid. I also did an ovidrel shot on cycle day 12 and IUI was 36hours later. I always had an US on cycle day 12 to confirm follicle size and uterine lining. Unfortunately IUI did not work for me. The process physically was very easy for me and the clinic made sure everything was scheduled and called in for me.

It may take a while to get your initial appointment [with Dr. Plosker] but it was worth the wait. He recommends what he feels is best, but also listens to your concerns and will ultimately do whatever you choose...will suggest how many you should transfer based on the quality. But let’s you decide if you want less... take a lot of pride in his job. He takes the time to talk with you, answer any questions you have, and come up with a plan. He truly understands the the difficulty in the process and is warm and caring through it all.
Roughly $12,000 for a fresh transfer with an additional approximately $1,200 for medications [at USF IVF] . Which are from the hospital pharmacy and are provided at a discounted rate because of a grant. Also, roughly $14,000 for a frozen transfer with an additional approximately $1,500 in medications...Strengths: their communication and willingness to answer questions without you feeling like you are “bothering” them is amazing. Even if you have asked the same question many times.... Weakness: no fault to the clinic, but they are a learning facility, so sometimes your appointment time may end up being 30-40 minutes later than scheduled because they get backed up trying to explain procedures to students.
How was your experience with Shayne Plosker at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?
Dr Plosker is very open and listens to your concerns. He wanted to do a fresh transfer but when I spoke to him about my concerns from my previous fresh transfer, he listened and validated my concerns. He understood I did my homework to educate myself and listened to my body’s response.

Describe the protocols Shayne Plosker used in your cycles at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology and their degree of success.
I did birth control to start my cycle. Then I was placed on Gonal-F (300) and Menopur (2 vials of powder) at night. Then they added Ganerelix (1 syringe) each morning in addition to continuing my night medications. Before transfer I was out on Estrace (3x a day) and Crinone (2x a day).
Describe your experience with your nurse at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology. (Assigned nurse: Joy)
Joy has been my nurse for both cycles. And I could not be happier. She talks to you in terms you understand. Will offer advice if you ask. I have had phone conversations with other nurses on call, and they all have been extremely caring and wonderful through all the ups and downs of these sometimes heartbreaking cycles.

Oodles of blood work. Hysterosalpinogram- which showed a blocked tube. At this point Dr. Plosker offered surgery to fix it but we wanted to start less invasive. We tried four IUIs using Clomid and Orvidel- unsuccessful. Sonohysterography- showed a polyp which may be cause for failed IUI. Dr. Plosker performed laparoscopic surgery. During that time he removed endometriosis, repaired a fallopian tube, and removed the poly. Currently doing timed intercourse with Femara while saving money for IVF.
USF health is a big clinic, but you would never know it. I have been with them for three years and have always received return calls promptly and have been able to get appointments without delay. they have numerous sites which are nice but invasive procedures and testing are performed in Tampa. It would be nice if the satellite offices provided more procedures as well.
How was your experience with Shayne Plosker at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?
Dr. Plosker is amazing. From day one we felt comfortable in his office. He explained the process every step of the way and at no point did we feel we were just another algorithm to him. He takes the time to explain the process and also always allowed us to ask questions without feeling like we were a bother to him. I have nothing but mazing things to say about Dr. Plosker. We have bee in his car for 3 years and while we have no successfully conceived YET I know we will with our determination and his knowledge.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shayne Plosker at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?
On occasion you will have to wait past your appointment time but it is worth it. Once you are in the office with him you will feel like you are his only patient. You will never feel rushed so just remember he is making the patient ahead of you feel the same way.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shayne Plosker at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?

Dr. Plosker’s course of treatment were the IUIs. We did four rounds of IUI, along with medication to produce multiple follicles and to stimulate egg release. This course of action was taken because all of the infertility tests for my husband and myself came back negative. After these attempts were unsuccessful, Dr. Plosker performed the HSG. This result was normal. Then we underwent a mock transfer with saline. For IVF treatment, aside from the medication regimen, we had ICSI, PGS genetic testing, genetic screening for both me and my husband, fibroid removal, and an ERA
A strength is USF has satellite offices with the ability to monitor from those offices. Another strength is the Tampa office is open every day. They also have an on call nurse and Dr. to answer any questions or concerns that may arise during a cycle.....Joy Taylor is one of the best nurses we’ve ever met. She exemplifies what a professional nurse should be. She responds to questions promptly and is extremely helpful.
How was your experience with Shayne Plosker at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?
Dr. Plosker has been a very kind and understanding professional. He takes the time to fully explain our treatment plan and answer any questions that may arise. When my husband and I first started this process, we did not know where to start or what to ask. He was exceptionally informative while understanding our concerns. We feel that Dr. Plosker always has our best interests in mind.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shayne Plosker at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?
The one piece of advice that we would have for prospective patients would be to utilize his expertise. Do not be afraid to ask questions. Dr. Plosker will not only answer your questions, but frame his answers in a way that someone not familiar with medical terminology would understand.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shayne Plosker at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?
Dr. Plosker takes the time to explain everything. He has also personally called me from his cell phone to discuss results.

For IVF treatment, aside from the medication regimen, we had ICSI, PGS genetic testing, genetic screening for both me and my husband, fibroid removal, and an ERA. This first attempt of retrieval and implantation resulted in a miscarriage. The cause was unknown. As a result, Dr. Plosker wanted to eliminate any possible reasons for the miscarriage. That is why the fibroid surgery and ERA have taken place.

My IUIs were covered by my insurance. But IVF was not, we financed $42,000 (almost $62,000 after interest) through ARC. Meds have been around $3,000.

Dr Imudia sat down with my husband and I and went over all our results and plan of care. He answered our questions and concerns and really listened to us.... Although we have only seen him a handful of times throughout our treatment, he was very efficient when we saw him. He was knowledgable about our results and explained our plan of care.... We attempted 5 months of Femara 5mg with timed relations. All five months were negative pregnancy test.
The nursing staff [USF] has been great. Anytime I had a question, they were happy to answer it. During both IUI procedures, the nurse explained exactly what she was doing and made my husband and I feel comfortable.... Strengths include they are educated about infertility, have a plan of care they go over with you, easy to communicate with, good success rates. Weaknesses include they aren't always forthcoming during ultrasounds with what they are doing, you need to ask questions. You mainly deal with nurses and coordinator, don't see or talk to the doctor much.

I have done my trigger shot, Ovidrel, on day 12 between 8pm and 10pm. We are back at the clinic on day 14, 36 hours post trigger for IUI procedure. So far, all negative pregnancy test.

Electronic communication was the best thing I had with Dr.Imudia and boy did he have a lot of emails from me... is patient and kind and makes the best action plan as best as he can. We even wanted to transfer 2 embryos but he suggested 1 as it did not necessarily increase chances of a viable pregnancy plus the added difficulties it would present if both embryos did attach...I believe Dr. Immudia will make the best decision for each patient's circumstance.
RN [at USF IVF and Reproductive Endocrinology] is great at scheduling and because they have multiple locations it is easy to shift appointments around once you are an established patient...It is hard to get in initially but once you are an established patient, advocate for what you want. I had all my blood work completed and my cycle began in December I was not scheduled for an IUI but asked m doctor why I couldn't do it if all my labs/ultrasounds were done, well with that said I was immediately booked for my baseline ultrasound on New year's day. The clinic is never closed.

Describe the protocols Anthony Imudia used in your cycles at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology and their degree of success.
During my IUI cycles I used clomid(no injectables) and had baseline ultrasounds but that was it and those were not successful, but also take into consideration I had just balanced my hormones so those eggs that did not fertilize could have been a results of my previously imbalanced hormones. My IVF cycle was after my hormones were balanced for over 6 months, so the egg quality was probably much better at this point. During my IVF cycle I used injectables(Lupron,menopur,gonal f) and then progesterone suppositories until 10 weeks) and I got my daughter.

What specific things went wrong at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?
  • Lost results
Describe the specific things that went wrong at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology.
The clinic did not make the mistake it was the lab they sent out the results too, they took longer then expected to give them back the results and or never ran the test at all. This was not the fault of Dr. Immudia's team it was to QUEST where they sent out my urine sample.

He [Dr. James Mayer] unfortunately had to be the one to confirm that I will never get pregnant with out IVF. Although his words shattered my heart, I felt comforted and reassured by the way he delivered that message...He did diagnostic testing and then a surgery. After the surgery it was found IVF is our best (only) option...I felt like a human because he ALWAYS took his time and gave me his undivided attention. He left no question unanswered always providing complete explanation and honestly but delivered with kindness and consideration.
The nursing staff [at USF IVF and Reproductive Endocrimology] was very hard to get a hold of. I felt like I was always leaving messages and having to wait longer than reasonably expected. They seemed a bit unorganized, but were generally friendly...I felt the clinic is well equipped and able to perform all tests and procedures inhouse. They are located next to a major hospital which is used for needed surgeries and the pharmacy, both of which are an added convenience.They are very accommodating when scheduling appointments.
How was your experience with James Mayer at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?
His strengths are communication and empathy. He always takes his time to thoroughly explain every step, test, or procedure. He draws pictures and will go over the information as many times as you need. He is upfront, honest, and to the point but the delivery is always kind and empathetic. He unfortunately had to be the one to confirm that I will never get pregnant with out IVF. Although his words shattered my heart, I felt comforted and reassured by the way he delivered that message. I could not have asked for a better Doctor. There is nothing I would change about my experience with him.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of James Mayer at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?
You can trust him. You can be open and honest about your fears and concerns, he will always listen and try his best to reassure you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with James Mayer at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?
I felt like a human because he ALWAYS took his time and gave me his undivided attention. He left no question unanswered always providing complete explanation and honestly but delivered with kindness and consideration. And when I was a complete mess before my surgery he literally took my hand and reassured me that he would only do what was best for me and my health. I've never met another Doctor who was more genuine and kind.
Describe the protocols James Mayer used in your cycles at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology and their degree of success.
We never went through a treatment cycle. He did diagnostic testing and then a surgery. After the surgery it was found IVF is our best (only) option so we have been saving since.

After the first failed IVF Dr. Imudia changed from ganirelix to lupron. He explained to us since the first protocol didnt work he didnt want to repeat the same one and we agreed. ... He does not sugar coat, hes very straightforward in a very tactful way ... We were glad that Dr. Imudia opted to transfer 3 embryos on our first try as some clinics are opposed to this method.
The clinic [USF IVF and Repro Endo] is very organized. I've only had to wait a few minutes passed my appointment one time in almost 2 years. ... My phone calls are always returned promptly ... My nurse Kristen was amazing, I called her for every little thing and every little symptom and she was so accommodating and so compassionate. Another nurse named Melissa was also amazing, she hugged me when I cried the whole staff is just so genuine.
How was your experience with Anthony Imudia at USF IVF & Reproductive Endocrinology?
Anthony Imudia genuinely wants you to have success. My failure to conceive is his failure and he stresses over options because he wants to make it happen for you. He held my hand literally just before my retrieval to put me at ease, he didn't have to do that.

My HSG [with Dr. Shayne Plosker] revealed I have a blocked right tube. My blood work showed I had low AMH. My protocol was to do timed cycles at home first with clomid and then move onto IUI. His treatment strategy included us probably needing IVF...He was understanding to my situation and offered the best plan of action to move forward. I felt like he was doing what was best for my diagnosis but I didn’t feel like it was the only option I had. I was given only 2 options and I felt like maybe I had more alternatives. I ended up becoming pregnant on my own without assistance and followed up with his clinic for my perinatologist care.
I only spoke with them [nurses at USF IVF and Reproductive Endocrinology] briefly on the phone for appointments...The clinic was easy to find and get to. Very busy practice staff was polite and helpful. The office itself was nice and well kept. Parking was easy, the building was marked well to figure out where to go...I had and HSG done along with blood work and that was all. My HSG revealed I have a blocked right tube.

My protocol was to do timed cycles at home first with clomid and then move onto IUI. His treatment strategy included us probably needing IVF. We took a break after the timed cycles. I ended up getting pregnant naturally with a PCOS diet and weight loss in 2012. I had a missed miscarriage and ended up taking another fertility break so I didn’t follow up with the clinic again until I got pregnant again in 2014. Where I was referred to USF to see a Perinatologist because of my AMA and not Plosker because I was already pregnant.

I love Dr. Imudia! He is so compassionate during a tough journey! When i went for my egg retrieval he held my hand until I was asleep. I know to many that may not mean much but it was so sweet an caring and sometimes the little things go a long way.... My first cycle we started on a low dose for IVF meds and realized my body needed higher doses so we adjusted. When it came to round two Dr. Imudia really had a better understanding of how my body reacted to the meds and created a protocol that was best suited for me
They [USF IVF] do take a while to get into as a new patient. Although I have not got my miracle baby yet I would highly recommend this place. They are very caring and compassionate. Their communication with their patients has always been amazing.... Monitoring appointments were only a issue on the weekends. It is slammed on the weekends.... I love Dr. Imudia!
