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.

Success w/ Doc Not sure
Felt like Dr. Carpenter didn't really spend a lot of time explaining things or answering questions...You will be dealing more with her staff (which is totally fine) but don't have expectations that Dr. Carpenter will be spending a lot of one on one time with you. Her visits are brief and felt rushed in my opinion...She also dismissed a pretty big factor on my husband's semen analysis and said it wasn't a concern. After doing further research and talking to another RE, it was a big miss on her part and should have been addressed and explained...
The clinic [Bloom Fertility] is beautiful and brand new. It feels very clean and bright. The clinical staff is friendly and warm when you go in for your monitoring appointments. You get results back quickly because it's a smaller "boutique" clinic and they do not accept insurance meaning billing is very straightforward...Costs were straightforward and listed on her website...I really really like Elle and Mikesha [nurses]. They were always very friendly when I went in for my monitoring appointments....
How was your experience with Sue Ellen Carpenter at Bloom Fertility?
Dr. Carpenter is nice enough and we were initially really happy with her. However, upon moving to a new clinic there were some oversights on her part. My husband's semen analysis showed some abnormalities which Dr. Carpenter essentially brushed off because all of his other parameters were normal. Come to find out, the issue is a rather big one according to our new clinic. She also spent maybe 3 minutes total with me during my monitoring appointments and didn't really take time to explain things just said, "things look good, take a trigger shot x day." I only had 1 monitoring appointment per cycle. Our new clinic has me coming in for monitoring and blood work weekly. While I think she is a nice person, I didn't really feel like she took the time to talk us through everything. She sent me progesterone results and said, "congratulations!" leading me to get some false hope for a future positive pregnancy test.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sue Ellen Carpenter at Bloom Fertility?
If you have questions, make sure to ask them. You will be dealing more with her staff (which is totally fine) but don't have expectations that Dr. Carpenter will be spending a lot of one on one time with you. Her visits are brief and felt rushed in my opinion.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sue Ellen Carpenter at Bloom Fertility?
Dr. Carpenter is very warm and pleasant. However, the total time spent talking to her was 10 minutes and I was in the clinic several times for monitoring. She didn't really ask me if I had any questions or concerns and it felt like she was in and out.
Describe the protocols Sue Ellen Carpenter used in your cycles at Bloom Fertility and their degree of success.
I was started on 2.5mg of Letrozole and had one ultrasound. Dr. Carpenter gave me a particular day to trigger and asked me to report back with a positive pregnancy test or with the start of my cycle. I was not successful our first cycle so we upped my dosage to 5mg and had the same protocol. Both cycles were unsuccessful. She wanted to switch me to Clomid to "see what happens" if I continued with her clinic but my current RE advised against Clomid.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Bloom Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Elle)
I really really like Elle and Mikesha. They were always very friendly when I went in for my monitoring appointments.
Describe your experience with Bloom Fertility.
Pros - The clinic is beautiful and brand new. It feels very clean and bright. The clinical staff is friendly and warm when you go in for your monitoring appointments. You get results back quickly because it's a smaller "boutique" clinic and they do not accept insurance meaning billing is very straightforward. Cons - Felt like Dr. Carpenter didn't really spend a lot of time explaining things or answering questions. She was confident 3 cycles of meds and monitoring would work for us and it didn't. She also dismissed a pretty big factor on my husband's semen analysis and said it wasn't a concern. After doing further research and talking to another RE, it was a big miss on her part and should have been addressed and explained.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sue Ellen Carpenter at Bloom Fertility.
Costs were straightforward and listed on her website. She does not take insurance at Bloom.
