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.

She [Dr. Carolyn Doherty] made sure to speak with me in detail so I understood the process. I felt like she took the time to reassure me and when talking to her I felt very cared for.... I was very anxious and she was calming in each interaction. I felt like she really understood me and my husband's background and throughly went over the plan. Her confidence and kindest was very motivating.
They [nurses at Methodist for Women] were beyond amazing. Each person from the front desk to the ultrasound tech was so supportive and kind each time we came in...In total we paid 2600 for the IUI , that includes the doctor visits, blood work, ultrasounds, medication and procedure...The clinic has an amazing staff. They were very compassionate and really listened to us. Any time I called I was able to speak with someone or get a call back in a reasonable amount of time and they speak the time talking with me, I never felt like they were rushing me off the phone.

Success w/ Doc Not sure
Dr Oakes is very compassionate, she will continue to switch things up as she sees fit when our first IVF failed. She told me she would let me know if we should give up and not waste our money but she was pretty confident she could get us pregant, with a low egg quality, the first IVF didn't work, we started again the following month and are pregnant with our miracle boy, due in July.
Monica [a nurse at Methodist for Women] was amazing, she really cared about her patients. Took the time to answer all questions, even if same question multi times. I can't say enough good things about her. There were some nurses who were not very friendly, but i didn't work with them very often nor remember their names.... We spent a total of 38,000 for both IVFs we did, this included medicine of which the first IVF was more expensive because of the long days we had to do meds

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Meghan Oakes at Methodist for Women?
Dr Oakes is an amazing doctor. I had first (3 years back) visited with her partner, i was so turned off by her, she was rude and not very compassionate. Dr Oakes is just that. She treated me like someone who mattered and wanted to use us achieved a pregnancy where the previous doctor said he couldn't help us. No baby yet, but we are due in July. Dr Oakes said because of my low egg quality and my age 35 we should start the process all right after, she said that is what she would tell her loved ones. I just can't express enough how wonderful she is.
Describe the protocols Meghan Oakes used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
I was on the highest dosage the first IVF, we had to be on the shots for 18 days which is quite long as my eggs weren't growing. When we decided to do the whole process again, she decided to switch up (one shot in am, one in pm) as well as add two additional shots (am/pm) of lupron. Happy to say, 2nd time it worked, switching up, helped.

I remember sitting there across the desk from her discussing my history and our story with her and talking about what she would do as a plan. I remember thinking- she is a real person. She isn’t just another doctor that sees you as a number. She is a humble, genuine person. I remember leaving that appointment with her saying- “I am excited to do IVF with her.”...she will take the time to matter of fairly but warmly tell you what you need to hear in that moment.
the doctor usually comes in and performs part of the ultrasound [at Methodist for Women]...The clinic- Inliterally can’t say anything- not a thing bad about it! Their system is Flawless! They have a first come first serve ultrasound and lab draw clinic In the mornings from 7-9 and it is AWESOME!...Every single one of them were amazing from the front desk to the phlebotomist to the anesthesiologist to my recovery room nurse. Everyone made me feel welcome. They made me feel like my story mattered and like we were on this path together to get us where we needed to be.
How was your experience with Meghan Oakes at Methodist for Women?
My first encounter was the consultation appointment with her, myself and my husband. I remember sitting there across the desk from her discussing my history and our story with her and talking about what she would do as a plan. I remember thinking- she is a real person. She isn’t just another doctor that sees you as a number. She is a humble, genuine person. I remember leaving that appointment with her saying- “I am excited to do IVF with her.” I will never forget I was at the clinic for a follicle check during my injections prior to my egg retrieval and I was just starting to feel an overwhelming sense of worry that IVF may not be the answer for us. That we may still not get pregnant. I hadn’t voiced that outright this particular day however I remember looking up from my planner and Dr Oakes was standing in front of me and she smiled and said, “things didn’t work out elsewhere because this is where you need to be. You’re here for a reason.” And then she proceeded to walk around the corner and give me a hug. I will NEVER ever ever forget that moment. That is the moment I needed. She just has a way about her- confident and matter of fact yet just enough warmth to her that she is humble and genuine- as a nurse For the last 11 years I have worked with a lot of physicians and ones like her are hard to come by.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Meghan Oakes at Methodist for Women?
Be honest and be real with her. Don’t be afraid to say exactly what you’re thinking or how you feel because she will take the time to matter of fairly but warmly tell you what you need to hear in that moment.

Describe the protocols Meghan Oakes used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
I honestly now (2 years since my retrieval and transfer) don’t remember exactly what I did for injections. I do remember she had me to a depo Lupron injection for my trigger shot as she stated because Inhad so many follicles and my estrogen levels were so high she didn’t want to cause me to have OHSS. I recall starting progesterone injections right away daily and did them until I believe 11 weeks. As far as our egg retrieval I recall her encouraging/recommending ICSI just because we had unexplained infertility with no male or female factors and so she thought it would be best that they manually inject the sperm into the eggs just in case for some reason naturally fertilization was not happening on its own. She did only recommend that we transfer one embryo. We had done PGS testing and had good results. She said with that she felt very confident that I would get pregnant from transferring one embryo that had been PGS tested and was of high quality. As far a
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Methodist for Women.
There were only about two nurses that I remember working with during my egg retrieval, transfer and then at the beginning of my pregnancy and they were great!! They were kind, compassionate, empathetic, and professional. They called me back with answers to my questions promptly if they were not available to speak when I phoned in. I will specifically never ever forget the call 1 week after our transfer when we had gone down for my quantitative HCG to see if we were pregnant. The nurse called me with my results and said, You’re going to be a mommy!” Those were the best words I have ever heard in my life and she said them with such warmth- true compassion and excitement.
Describe your experience with Methodist for Women.
Oh my goodness. The clinic- Inliterally can’t say anything- not a thing bad about it! Their system is Flawless! They have a first come first serve ultrasound and lab draw clinic In the mornings from 7-9 and it is AWESOME! You walk in- the front desk girls already know you’re coming and show you an ABN for that day and have you sign it( because of course no insurance coverage for any of it). Then you go sit in the waiting room- typically not long after a nurse calls you back to go see the phlebotomist who is great at venipunctures. Then you either go straight from there to an ultrasound room if you need one that day or you briefly go to the waiting room. Then again a nurse calls you back, takes you to an ultrasound room- talks with you about what’s been going on for treatment, etc and then you have your ultrasound with the tech- who is super amazing as well- she too is very knowledgeable about the smite process- not just ultrasound. Then the doctor usually comes in and performs part of the ultrasound and then you get dressed- go out to the desk and discuss the plan and you’re out the door- it is such a smooth process! They really have it down to a science!

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
During our process, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, and so Dr Oakes recommended I get a mammogram even though I wasn't 40 yet. I ended up having to get a biopsy, and Dr Oakes called me on a Sunday with the results...a week before the oncologist. We recently miscarried, and Dr Oakes gave us so much compassion and kindness, along with knowledge and a little need humor to help ease our pain and our worries. She performed my D&C and again her kindness and compassion, mixed with her confidence and knowledge reassured us about the process. She had both of her sons via IVF and I think that insight helps.
Everyone's very friendly and helpful [at Methodist for Women]. The one drawback, is in the back area where are the rooms are, sometimes you can hear others because there's an area where everyone stops to talk with the Drs or nurses before they leave...very open and could be disconcerting...Karey worked with us on our calendar, explained each step is the process, got us a couple resources where we could apply for a reduction in the cost of the mess for the donor (we didn't qualify based on income, but did get a 10% rebate from one company), and answered all of our questions. If she wasn't sure, she said so and followed up with us quickly after getting the answer. She always greats us by name. Everyone else in the clinic is great too, from the from desk to the phlebotomist, to the nurses, to the ultrasound tech (who also was extremely compassionate during the ultrasound were we learned of the miscarriage).
How was your experience with Meghan Oakes at Methodist for Women?
Dr Oakes is very personable, very knowledgable, and very compassionate. She always presented all of the information to us, gave us her recommendation and the reasoning, and then let us discuss and make our own decision.

Whenever I go in, everyone uses my name. Dr Oakes is very personable and follows up via phone when the situation warrants.
Describe the protocols Meghan Oakes used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
We started our process with our OB-GYN, who referred us to Dr Oakes after no success. Due to my age, we had only been going through it for about two years. Dr Oakes had us start with some retesting of levels. We learned that I was no longer producing eggs. I had my right ovary removed five years ago along with a dermoid cyst. That, combined with the PCOS, and my age and weight were all probably contributing factors. At this point we discussed our options. After meeting with Dr Oakes again, where she provided us with a lot of great information and resources regarding using donor eggs, that's the route we decided to go. We went on the wait list and last December, we had 3 donors to pick from. Once the donor egg process started, we did shots of Leuprolode...10 units each morning, in the thigh. We then added Estradiol 2 mg tablets. I started with 2 tablets for 3 days, then 3 tablets for three days, and then 4 tablets a day. And dropped to 5 units of the Leuprolode. Then right before the transfer, we switched to injections of progesterone...1 ml each morning. Once we were pregnant, both the progesterone and estrodiol continued...although we increased the progesterone to 1.5 ml.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Meghan Oakes at Methodist for Women.
Goodness, we are still paying, but they really try to send as much through insurance as possible. Here's the breakdown: Charges related to the Donor: Screening, Lab Work, Ultrasounds - $7366 Retrieval - $5676 Donor Fee - $4000 Medications - $3000 Charges related to recipient: IVF Lab Fee - $3345 Embryo Transfer - $2250 Pathology Fee - $92 I have a really great prescription plan, so all of my medications have been $10 per prescription...so far we've spent about $80. And then each week it's between $200 and $600, depending on the blood draw and ultrasound.

How was your experience with Meghan Oakes at Methodist for Women?
Dr. Oakes was recommeded to us by my OBGYN when she was out of ideas. Our first two visit with Dr. Oakes were wonderful. She sat us down and discussed our history (miscarriages) along with new ideas on how to move forward with treatment. She had new ideas and seemed eager to get started. We left with hope that we had made it to the right place. We started with blood work and shots and were driving 3 hours to the clinic weekly to prepare for IUI. This is when we felt like a number. After the initial consult we only saw Dr. Oakes a handful of times. Even during our IUI procedures we were with other doctors with no prior knowledge of a switch. I felt that she was knowledgeable in her skills but that her numbers were more important than a relationship with us. I'm wasn't looking for a best friend but I was looking for compassion and for the doctor I signed onto work with.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Meghan Oakes at Methodist for Women?
Dr. Oakes definitely knows fertility and she's there to do whatever it takes to get you pregnant. With us, though I was obviously there to achieve a pregnancy, I was also looking to make it past 6 weeks of a pregnancy (which I was unable to do, twice on my own). She believed we needed IUI and IVF and we weren't willing to invest in IVF without first knowing why I was having recurrent miscarriages. We never got the sense she was going to dig into that. Just the sense that she was playing whatever she found to be the best odds.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Meghan Oakes at Methodist for Women?
We felt that their top priority was playing the odds. They were very scientific (which is nice) but I wanted to know more than just the odds. I never felt like they really invested in us as a couple. I never felt that they had in interest in truly figuring out what was wrong with me. They just wanted us pregnant. Pregnant is exactly what I wanted as well but I had also already had two miscarriages with healthy genetic testing. I was afraid to move forward with expensive treatments without first knowing what was happening and I didn't feel that they were going to provide that for us.
Describe the protocols Meghan Oakes used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
We used trigger shots, timed intercourse, and other oral medications for our 2 attempts at IUI. Both were unsuccessful.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Methodist for Women.
This clinic was always very busy when were there in the early mornings for open clinic. This was the time that everyone coming in for routine or weekly blood work and ultrasounds was there. It was always very busy as this time. The nurses were very kind and organized but I did feel as though we were being herded through like cattle. From the time we arrived to the time we left it was maybe 30 minutes. Though they were very efficient with blood work and ultrasounds it typically felt rushed and as though they were trying to see how many people they could squeeze into one morning.
Describe your experience with Methodist for Women.
The clinic has wonderful office hours as they open very early in the morning. We were driving 3 hours to complete ultrasounds and blood work and then 3 hours home and still arriving to work between 8 and 8:30am. They definitely know how to move their patients. Their front office workers weren't always the warmest or most accommodating. I certainly never felt like they were excited to see us. Just there to time stamp your chart.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Meghan Oakes at Methodist for Women.
Payment had to be made at each appointment before you could even sit in the waiting room. This included blood work and ultra sounds. This was approximately $150-$200. Our IUI procedures were approximately $1500.00
Describe Meghan Oakes's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Methodist for Women.
For religious reasons I was not comfortable with pulling as many eggs and making as many embryos as possible. I wanted to keep the numbers lower and more manageable so that selection was not a choice I would have to make. IVF was only a discussion so I never had to dive too deep into that discussion. I did have 5 follicles during one of our IUI transfers and felt very pressured to reduce if IUI had been successful.

She [Dr. Carolyn Doherty] knows what she is doing and she is very up front and honest. She won't sugar coat things and sometimes what she has to says is hard to hear. Honestly at this point in our journey I was tired of the sugar coating and appreciated her candor... Iui we did follistim and ganirelix. For the first IVF we did the same meds. At retrieval they only got 4 eggs from 14 and only 1 embryo which didn't make it to transfer. The second cycle we switched to gonal f and cut out the ganirelix. I think because they thought it slowed down my follicle growth and I was a long stim. The second IVF we also did a double trigger since the eggs were so hard to retrieve the time before. Ended up retrieving eggs from all follicles (7), had 2 embryos, 1 made it to transfer and is a 4 month old bundle of joy.
I liked for the monitoring ultrasounds and bloodworm they [Methodist for Women-Omaha] had hours from 7-9ish were it was first come first serve. I didn't have to take any extra time off work for those appointments. Only for the actual procedures. That reduced the atress a lot.... It was a cattle call and a well oiled machine. They got you in and out. Called with blood test results and then plan. Seamless

Dr. Oakes is amazing! She truly cares about her patients, and is very good with explaining everything...She really cares about what she does and what’s going on...[new patient advice]She doesn’t sugar coat things. Which is good!! Be open to everything...For the egg retrieval I was on multiple meds. Before transfer I was on estradiol and progesterone until pregnancy test.
The nursing staff[of Methodist for Women] is great. They remember who you are. Super friendly...Everyone works together. Advice- be prepared to wait for a little if you have an early AM appointment for labs or ultrasound. Sometimes you’ll see another doctor as well...Medications were very costly. Insurance thankfully paid up to 5,000 for meds- we still paid over 2,000 out of pocket. We are still getting bills for procedures

The strengths- great team. Everyone works together. Advice- be prepared to wait for a little if you have an early AM appointment for labs or ultrasound. Sometimes you’ll see another doctor as well. They have a good system for labs and ultrasound as well. Everyone is pretty on top of things. The only con I would say is not being able to call a triage nurse but instead the receptionist. I always feel bad calling multiple times and having them take a message for me.

First round [with Dr. Meghan Oakes] was supposed to be IVF. 225 of Gonal F with trigger. Didn’t produce enough eggs went to IUI. Failed. Second round of IVF attempt (mini) 450 Gonal F. Tested AMH. Found out my AMH is very low (.45). Peoceded with IVF retrieved 4 eggs. Two embryos made to day 5. Transferred both and failed.... She is very personable and truly cares for her patients. She makes sure to answer all of your questions thoroughly and lays all of different scenarios out for her patients. She made sure to check in on us when our attempts at different procedures had failed.
Turn around time for a phone call is quick [at Methodist for Women]. They are always there to answer questions. The clinic made sure to make you feel welcomed and not a number. They always had a smile on their faces and warmth in their hearts for all of their patients.... They always were so friendly and very supportive. If you had a question they would do their best to answer and if they didn’t have an answer they would get one for me. They made my husband and I feel welcomed and supported.

AMH was tested after half the cycle was done. After the 3rd failed cycle was recommended [by Dr. Oakes to do] a 4th one... she kept asking me to try another cycle and try increasing the dose. AMH wasn’t checked until I added to check it...Good bed side manners. Should have done more analysis on my results to come up with a plan instead of trying IUI with a really low dose. With low amh and slightly elevated fsh, would you do a unmedicates IUI with a sperm donor?
One Monitoring with blood work go $317 [costs at Methodist for Women]. 300 to thaw the sperm and 300 for insemination. 400 is the consult...They are pretty good to work with. Soft spoken and answer all the questions you may have. The place is pretty clean and the nurses are very good...I wish the proper analysis and blood work was done based on my age to come up with a plan. Spent a lot of money trying IUI.

Number because she kept asking me to try another cycle and try increasing the dose. AMH wasn’t checked until I added to check it.
Describe the protocols Meghan Oakes used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
First IUI was unmediated and timed based on the size of the follicles and blood work. Second was medicated and started with 75 Gonal and increased to 150 the last 3 days. Just one follicle during that time. Third cycle, 75 hmg and then increased it 150 and then to 225. 2 follicles. Took a shot to delay ovukation and took a trigger shot. AMH was tested after half the cycle was done. After the 3rd failed cycle was recommended a 4th one.

I had many reservations about seeing Dr. Doherty but they were quickly put to rest after our consultation. She is good at what she does. She is confident. She is effective. She is the best. She will not sugar coat, which I personally appreciate, but with that comes a lot of "potentials" that can infect your emotions. You have to dissect what she says and understand that "worse case scenarios" aren't necessarily your scenarios. She put me at ease from day one and made our journey feel seemless and controlled at all times. I would recommend her over and over again to anyone considering her clinic.
Maud and staff [at Methodist for Women] were for the most part very friendly and warm. The clinic can get busy and sometimes I felt rushed through when I needed better details, but they would sense that and take the time I needed to better understand things. They had an appropriate demeanor of speaking "clinically" and frankly, while understanding the delicacy of the emotions that come with infertility.

Dr. Oakes was very honest about what treatments needed to be conducted. She was very 'in the moment' and felt like she listened to our concerns....She was the most honest Dr. we have seen for our treatments and I felt that I trusted her professionalism the most. Dr. Oakes is wonderful!...We were told of a number of tests that would have to be ran. And also told of the teachings and classes of the process/shots that would be suggested to take.
The staff [Methodist for Women] at the clinic was incredibly helpful and informational. Anytime I called they were always kind and friendly. We had to reschedule because of a snow storm at one point and it was no big deal to tell. They were very accommodating. The only weakness would be the cost of the treatments and how far it was from our home. The clinic is 3.5 hours from our house. The cost of the treatments is comparable to many other clinics - which always just seems high when you are doing these treatments.
How was your experience with Meghan Oakes at Methodist for Women?
We met Dr. Oakes for a consultation after being at a clinic that treated us more like a number for a few years. We only met with Dr. Oakes in the consultation because of some family circumstances with parents passing away - and also the amount of money it was going to take at the time to start treatments again. Dr. Oakes is the 1st on our list to visit again - if we get the chance to go back. She was the most honest Dr. we have seen for our treatments and I felt that I trusted her professionalism the most.

From the first appointment doctor Dougherty has been very helpful with getting us set on the right path. She asks about your interests and how you want to do things which makes you feel included. She is blunt but that is what I like about her.... She was very up front about protocols about the procedures that we will be starting. She has always from the beginning followed protocol about CMV status.
They [Methodist for Women] are very helpful and always answer any questions that you have along the way. They keep up posted on future appointments.

Sometimes she would talk to me and I wouldn’t understand.

Dr Oakes was very kind and had a direct path in mind. She did take into consideration the path my husband and I wanted to follow. We were successful twice with her, which does help my view on the process....The way the office is set up, it feels very much like a cattle call. But personally, she treated me like a human.... Do your research and ask lots of questions. Get explanations of why she wants to go particular routes.
Loved the actual clinic! Even though it [Methodist for Women] is like a cattle call, it was nice to sit in the waiting room with others and know that you’re not alone in this process. I also like going in during an open hours time (before work) vs always scheduling appointments....They were very reasonable with insurance coverage.... [Nurses] Very rude and not at all compassionate. But they were good at what they did.

She pDr. Meghan Oakes] was warm, honest and compassionate. She made me feel more at ease and optimistic. I went on recommendation from a close friend who had successful IVF. I felt like I made a new friend who was really knowledgeable after meeting Dr. Oakes.... She reviewed my past treatment with me before determining that we should test for tubal blockages. After performing that test she determined that we could try IUI or IVF. We decided to try IUI first because it's less intrusive and costly.
You'll need to make numerous trips to the office [Methodist For Women- Omaha] for different testing. They will communicate any needs beforehand as much as possible. They are good about accommodating your schedule as much as possible.... It was over $1000 for each cycle of IUI. The medication was even more due to my estrogen levels....

She [Dr. Doherty] is very blunt and one my first consultation visit, told me I was too young to be in her office...She is lacking in bedside manner but makes up for it in knowledge. I highly doubt she remembers any of her patients names or personal details. She’s been doing this for a long time and gets the results, you just have to be willing to go along with her plan...Don’t expect warm and fuzzy
[Methodist for Women is] a very busy clinic. You do as you are told, when you are told. There is not an option to coordinate around your personal schedule. We had an hour long commute each way and many times were expected to show up at 7am for lab work with hardly any notice...After trying 3 rounds of clomid with my regular ob/gyn, our first cycle with her [Dr. Doherty] she insisted on doing another round of clomid with IUI. I felt like this was not a step forward (and ultimately did not work). The next round we did injections with IUI which was successful. Two years later, we went back to try for a second baby and did two rounds of injections with IUI which ultimately was not successful.

Describe the protocols Carolyn Maud Doherty used in your cycles at Methodist for Women and their degree of success.
We did 3 rounds of IUI with her. She was open every day of the week. They did a good job monitoring my ovaries. Was about to start IVF- But unfortunaly we could not afford anymore due to us getting the surgery bill we had to pay out of pocket. Insurance in Nebraska does not pay for any infertility.

Cold and numb. But I am sure they knew what they were doing.

When we would go we would wait usually 30 minutes to 60 minutes. They staff was not very friendly when we had one of our miscarriages. Said this happens and start our next cycle so and so date. I am sure they are just so use to it that they become numb to it. But it was still very difficult.

She [Dr. Carolyn Doherty] is honest and frank about speaking to you about your conditions. She was very blunt which I appreciated. I couldn’t ask for anything different in a doctor. She took time to address my concerns. I felt that’s she provided great care. I would go back to her if needed... I did one IUI with Clomid. I looked into further testing and she had a plan for us but we decided not to pursue more treatment.
[Methodist for Women's] Strengths-quality care, honest and real, helpful staff Weakness-expensive care, lacked compassion It would be good for someone new to know about the cost assoxiated with infertility treatment. This clinic was helpful though... I did one IUI with Clomid. I looked into further testing and she had a plan for us but we decided not to pursue more treatment.

She [Dr. Meghan Oakes] has a very good bed side manner and takes time to answer questions you have and explain what's going on...She is compassionate and a good communicator. She explained that that we have male infertility factor and without ivf we have 2% chance of getting pregnant naturally. She then explained why iui isn't an option for us due to sperm count how it would just be a waste.
