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 Too early to know
Dr. Houpe is a regular OBGYN so I had lower expectations to begin with, however we decide to some initial treatment with her in order to save on costs. I feel that she is a great OBGYN, but does not have good experience with dealing with infertility and it was very difficult to get answers about things due to not being able to talk with her directly. I had to direct most of my care with her and ask for any changes or to try something different.
Communication about the next steps was never good, and they [Circle of Life Women's Center] failed to do follicle checks, I finally requested a follicle check and at that time they found endometriomas and we had to completely change the course of treatment. I feel these would have been found sooner if they had done the appropriate tests... they are not specialists and if things are not working you should move on to someone more qualified quickly.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robin Houpe at Circle of Life Women's Center?

I do feel that she treated me well while I was with her, but some of the staff were less kind and more difficult to work with.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Circle of Life Women's Center.
Some of the nurses were very helpful and communicated very well, but others were unkind and had no empathy for someone dealing g with infertility, again this clinic is not infertility based so I think that is a factor.
Describe your experience with Circle of Life Women's Center.
Their biggest strength is to provide some of the initial treatments at a much lower cost than an official infertility clinic. However, they are not specialists and if things are not working you should move on to someone more qualified quickly.

She [Dr. Robin Houpe] cared about me in the moment while she was with me. I could tell she was competent and educated but she was able to speak to me. She performed my IUI fast and sufficiently and explained every step as she went...She spent time talking to me as a person, it was easy to speak to her. I didnt feel like a number to her...I would suggest asking every question you can think of. She is more than willing to answer them.
This clinic [Circle of Life Women's Center] is largely a OB GYN clinic not a fertility central clinic. I appreciated the lower cost for IUI but I wished I could have received the sperm count of the IUI we did here. The atmosphere was clean, warm and family friendly which I value greatly...all the nurses and staff seemed friendly, attentive and mature...She [Dr. Robin Houpe] spent time talking to me as a person, it was easy to speak to her.

Describe the protocols Robin Houpe used in your cycles at Circle of Life Women's Center and their degree of success.
I took Letrozol for this cycle. The reason was to create super ovulation. Because my body ovulated naturally I didn’t have to take a trigger shot. They did not count the sperm before the IUI because they said they don’t do that.

I only interacted with them in the clinic but all the nurses and staff seemed friendly, attentive and mature
