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.

How was your experience with Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County?
From the very beginning of my IVF journey, Dr. Lin demonstrated an exceptional level of professionalism, expertise, and care. What truly sets Dr. Lin apart is their unwavering commitment to providing personalized and thorough treatment, paying attention to every detail, and the ability to adjust the treatment plan as needed. Here are some key aspects of my experience with Dr. Lin: Thorough Initial Consultation: Dr. Lin started by conducting a comprehensive initial consultation. They took the time to listen to my concerns, answer all of my questions, and gather extensive information about my medical history and fertility goals. I have consulted 4 doctors, he's the only one took time reading through all my medical history and gave out his opinion based on my record, which it's impressive and made me pick him as my ivf doctor. Personalized Treatment Plan: Dr. Lin did not offer a one-size-fits-all approach. They tailored my treatment plan to address my specific needs and circumstances, which instilled a sense of confidence that I was receiving the most appropriate care. Attention to Detail: Throughout the treatment process, Dr. Lin consistently exhibited an extraordinary attention to detail. They meticulously monitored my progress. He performed every ultrasound by himself. This level of attentiveness was reassuring and crucial in optimizing the chances of a successful IVF cycle. Effective Communication: Dr. Lin was not only a skilled physician but also an excellent communicator. They explained every step of the process, ensuring I understood the procedures, medications, and potential outcomes. Every time I had questions raised in my portals, the nurses or Dr. Lin would reply to my message or even call me to address my questions/concerns. Timely Adjustments: One of the standout qualities of Dr. Lin is their ability to make timely adjustments to the treatment plan. They closely monitored my progress and made changes as needed. On my first check-up after starting my injection, Dr. Lin adjusted my medication dose timely after the blood test result, which I believe it's crucial for my success in the egg retrieval stage. Successful Outcome: Thanks to Dr. Lin's expertise, dedication, and personalized approach, I am thrilled to say that my IVF cycle resulted in a satisfying outcome. This outcome would not have been possible without their guidance and care. I can't wait to have my frozen embryo transfer soon! In summary, Dr. Lin is a phenomenal fertility specialist who goes above and beyond to provide the highest level of care to their patients.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County?
Schedule Your Appointment Early. Bring Your Medical History. Prepare a List of Questions you might have
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County?
Dr. Lin has consistently demonstrated a remarkable level of responsiveness and professionalism throughout the entire process. His tentative approach to my case, combined with his extensive knowledge and experience, instilled a great sense of confidence in me. I appreciate how he personally conducted each ultrasound examination, ensuring that every detail was carefully monitored and assessed. Furthermore, Dr. Lin's patience in answering my numerous questions and addressing any concerns I had was truly commendable. He always took the time to explain complex medical concepts in a clear and understandable manner, alleviating any anxieties I may have had along the way. His dedication to patient care and satisfaction was evident at every interaction.
Describe the protocols Wayne Lin used in your cycles at Fertility Centers of Orange County and their degree of success.
estradiol for priming, 75iu of menopur, 225iu Gonal-F (then changed to 300iu), day 7 start cetrotide, hcg trigger.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Centers of Orange County.
I am scared of blood draws, Christine's caring and gentle approach during the blood draw left a lasting impression on me for her light-handed technique and her unwavering commitment to patient comfort. She consistently went above and beyond to make a stressful and often uncomfortable procedure as pleasant as possible. Lisa's exceptional care during my egg retrieval was nothing short of remarkable. She explained every step of the procedure in great detail, ensuring I understood what was happening throughout. Her caring and empathetic nature shone through, and she was a calming presence during a time of heightened emotions. Lisa's dedication was evident as she stayed with me from the moment I arrived until I was on the operating bed. Her ability to provide emotional support, including the light petting to calm my nerves, was a demonstration of her extraordinary commitment to patient well-being.
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Orange County.
Overall Good Coordination: The clinic's coordination, in most cases, is commendable. Once you are a registered patient and have a schedule, the process appears to flow smoothly. Professionalism: The staff at the clinic display professionalism, and once you are in the system, they seem to provide appropriate care and support. Areas for Improvement: New Patient Registration: Registering as a new patient and scheduling a consultation could be a bit challenging. The process seemed to have some hiccups, making it less user-friendly for newcomers. As a new patient, please follow up if you don't receive a confirmation after 2-3 days you contact the clinic. Streamlining and simplifying the registration process would enhance the overall patient experience.

[Dr. Wayne Lin] was clear about the realities and barriers posed by diminished ovarian reserve and tubal blockage. I appreciated his honesty...My disappointment came during our in person meetings when he seemed to always be in a hurry. He spoke very quickly...I rarely had the chance to ask one or two questions during each monitoring visit.
[Fertility Centers of Orange County] Nursing team is great, the doctor may be skilled however I cannot speak to his results as my cycle was canceled and he failed to explain why or follow up. I believe he could have been more attentive as my interactions with him left me wanting more answers. He also could have been more investigative, afterall he did not tell me anything I didn't already know and he never clarified what went wrong during my cycle that resulted in its cancelation.
How was your experience with Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County?
I knew going into treatment that it would be challenging as I was aware of my diagnosis. The doctor was clear about the realities and barriers posed by diminished ovarian reserve and tubal blockage. I appreciated his honesty and how thorough he was during our initial consultation via zoom. My disappointment came during our in person meetings when he seemed to always be in a hurry. He spoke very quickly and used analogies much too often. I rarely had the chance to ask one or two questions during each monitoring visit. From the visits I gathered that my body was not responding as he almost immediately decided to increase my dosage of gonal-f. Ultimately my IVF cycle was canceled, despite the disappointment my biggest complaint is the doctor's lack of communication as he never reached out to explain why my cycle was canceled, what the next steps could be, what we could do differently going forward. Instead, all I got was a call from the nurse saying the doctor had ordered that I discontinue injections as the cycle was canceled. He provided no clarity and his failure to follow up confirmed how uninvested he was.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County?
Advocate for yourself, demand you get the time and undivided attention that you deserve as a paying patient.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County?
Everyone in the office is very welcoming and attentive. The doctor is also warm and friendly but he seems incredibly rushed. He was fine during our initial consultation which was via zoom but once in office he seemed to rush in and out of the in person appointments. Most if not all my monitoring appointments consisted of him quickly jumping into an ultrasound, briefly describing what he saw and proceeding to tell me that one of the nurses would inform me of the next steps. Then he was off to the next room.
Describe the protocols Wayne Lin used in your cycles at Fertility Centers of Orange County and their degree of success.
Estrace for priming, injectables began with 300 gonal f at night, and 150 menopur in the morning. After first monitoring visit and labs gonal f was increased to 375. Cycle was canceled after 2nd monitoring appointment. Doctor didn't explain rationale very well during visits. Again used his analogies of the engine of a car getting started which seemed to only cloud my understanding. Nurses did a much better job of clarifying once he was out of the room during in person visits.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Centers of Orange County.
The nurses were all very sweet and attentive. They went out of their way to answer questions regarding everything from insurance coverage, ordering and application of meds, and clarified things the doctor seemed to busy to do himself.

Not sure what the overall cost of my being seen by Dr. Lin was, as I have insurance coverage.
Describe Wayne Lin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Centers of Orange County.
He strongly encouraged single embryo transfer and briefly described why.

Dr Lin has a very approachable demeanor. He remembered every single detail each time and was very supportive...I couldn’t have asked for more from a Fertility doctor...I was always treated so well and communication was always timely...I have a history of ectopic pregnancy and still have my tubes so to decrease risk of another ectopic, Dr Lin had advised on eSET and we were in agreement
Everyone in the [Fertility Centers of Orange County] clinic is warm and compassionate. I had a lot of setbacks (not all under Dr Lin’s control unfortunately) and the staff at FCOC was so supportive. I couldn’t have asked for more from a Fertility doctor/ center- I was always treated so well and communication was always timely.
How was your experience with Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County?
I have nothing but good words to say for Dr Lin and all his staff. Everyone in the clinic is warm and compassionate. I had a lot of setbacks (not all under Dr Lin’s control unfortunately) and the staff at FCOC was so supportive. I couldn’t have asked for more from a Fertility doctor/ center- I was always treated so well and communication was always timely.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County?
Trust the process
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County?
Dr Lin has a very approachable demeanor. He remembered every single detail each time and was very supportive when things didn’t work out for us (not just in our fertility journey but other professional and personal hurdles I came across while in his care)
Describe the protocols Wayne Lin used in your cycles at Fertility Centers of Orange County and their degree of success.
Dr Lin adjusted my protocol from BCP to estrace for prepping for egg retreival for second cycle as first was canceled due to dominant follicle. That worked and we got embryos that cycle. I went for another egg retreival voluntarily and this time he adjusted the FSH dosage slightly and we got better results again. I had to be on Lupron per Dr Lin’s advice for few weeks before my transfer (which resulted in birth of our son) as before this I had a cancelled transfer cycle on Estrace. I would like to mention that I have PCOS and since the beginning of my fertility journey, my body has resisted responding well to medications/ birth control pills
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Centers of Orange County.
I have nothing but good words for all the nurses- Tina, Monique, Gaby and Amy. As well as their billing coordinator Michelle and front office manager Malika. I was probably their longest patient over one and half year (due to cancelled cycles due to personal and professional reasons as well).. I am also a healthcare professional and I have never seen better coordination, warmth and compassion in the staff of an entire care center like this before
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Orange County.
I guess they are a busy center. We waited for three months for our first appointment. But looking back, I am glad we did and we stayed with Dr Lin despite wanting to give up on our journey so many times
Describe the costs associated with your care under Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County.
30k for egg retrieval and around 10k for transfer
Describe Wayne Lin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Centers of Orange County.

Dr Lin was very kind and I could tell he was rooting for me to succeed. However after years of trying and two failed IVF cycles I moved to different doctor and was successful the first time. I think the problem was I didn't communicate my medical history to Dr. Lin and he didn't ask. I was taking migraine medication that pretty much made it impossible to get pregnant and had no idea. If we went over my history it could have saved years of pain...
[Fertility Centers of Orange County] were always able to make an appointment and went out of their way to accommodate my work schedule. It would have been nice if they were open before 8am or after 5pm. Billing department was very organized and prices were similar to other clinics...When transferring to another clinic they provided incomplete files and it took weeks to get. Other than that, no problems....

Dr. Lin was very thorough in his explanations, and gave us a comprehensive explanation of what he felt was our best course of action, while letting us have a say. He didn't push any unnecessary treatments on us, or additional medication, that he did not feel was beneficial. ... He was very thorough, if a bit repetitive. He never rushed us and always took the time to fully listen to and respond to questions. I really appreciate that he is up to date on the latest research and studies about fertility.
The strength is that the waiting times are very short, the billing department [Fertility Centers of Orange County] is great, and the waiting scheduling delay is not very long. You can usually get an appointment fairly quickly, and all ultrasounds are done in house by the doctor himself. ... There seemed to sometimes be a slight communication delay between the nurses and Dr. Lin, which resulted in phone calls where he did not have the latest information I provided to the client.

Describe the protocols Wayne Lin used in your cycles at Fertility Centers of Orange County and their degree of success.
We did letrozole and timed intercourse for three cycles, then moved onto letrozole and IUI. Letrozole started off at 5mg, but after poor response the first cycle, was upped to 7.5mg for 10 days, which produced a reasonable number of follicles. He didn't suggest IUI as he did not feel it made a significant difference but was happy to let us try.

My septum was corrected and 1 tube unblocked [ny Dr. Lane Wong], which is why we tried several IUIs before moving onto IVF. I responded great to all meds and ovulation was confirmed with each cycle however we concluded that although my tube was open it was not properly allowing the egg to make it into the tube. Due to my good response to meds Dr. Wayne Lin suggested we do a mini IVF cycle (minimal stimulation vs a conventional cycle) Due to the minimal stimulation less eggs where expected so we planned on ICSI and also planned to adjust the transfer date if needed depending on the number of successful fertilization. We did a Day 3 fresh transfer of 2 8 cell embryos which resulted in my no perfect 2 year old son. Unfortunately we had no embryos to freeze and would need to start IVF all over again in order to grow our family.
