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.

Dr Palta has a personality you will either love or hate - she is very direct and upfront and won't beat around the bush, yet she is also very compassionate when there is not so great news to be delivered...She was open to what I wanted to do, she did not try to influence my decision unless I asked for her opinion...There is a more flexibility at her practice and and she has accommodated me many times
[the NY Fertility] clinic is a one woman show and run very differently than a larger clinic. You do the first steps of the process with her and then work with a larger clinic for the retrieval, testing etc. It works great as a place to get monitoring done as long as they can get the bloodwork over to the clinic in a timely fashion...You have to stay on top of everything, she is a one person show running a busy practice on her own with an army of helpers
How was your experience with Vidya Palta at New York Fertility?
Dr Palta has a personality you will either love or hate - she is very direct and upfront and won't beat around the bush, yet she is also very compassionate when there is not so great news to be delivered (such as in my case). She is also a bit of a data nerd and delivers her opinions based on recent data and recites studies from the top of her head, which I appreciated. She went out of her way several times to help me prepare for big decisions that had financial repercussions (such as using clinics that had labs that my insurance covered) and contacting the right people to make sure I got in to the right places, etc. I felt that she was a good "general counsel" for some of the considerations I didn't know about being new to the IVF process and that was very helpful.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vidya Palta at New York Fertility?
You have to stay on top of everything, she is a one person show running a busy practice on her own with an army of helpers, and very different than working with a large clinic that is a well oiled machine that has different people handling different aspects of the practice.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vidya Palta at New York Fertility?
Dr Palta truly cares about her patients - she spends a lot more time with you than a regular doctor would. It's a very small practice and she runs the show and it's far from a well oiled machine but she makes it all work somehow. There is a more flexibility at her practice and and she has accommodated me many times, in ways a larger clinic would or could not when I have asked her to consider things I have done research on or read about.
Describe the protocols Vidya Palta used in your cycles at New York Fertility and their degree of success.
Gonal 900 units (5) - Started at 225, then 150 Menopur (30 valves) Leuprolide kit (1) Ganirelix (8) Novorel HCG (2 valves) 5000U
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at New York Fertility.
Dr Palta pretty much runs the show and her nurses do what she asks, you never get the same person as she has an army assisting her

Describe Vidya Palta's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at New York Fertility.
She was open to what I wanted to do, she did not try to influence my decision unless I asked for her opinion

Dr. Palta is a character, she loves what she does and has her hands in every decision. She also helps when she can. We ran out of insurance coverage and she helped us get drugs with discounts. She also would call insurance or the pharmacy for us to help get what we needed...got to know me and my story very well. She always talked to me about my concerns and allowed me to make the decisions.
[New York Fertility] staff is young and still learning. There were always mistakes made, but usually they were minor...Dr. Palta got to know me and my story very well. She always talked to me about my concerns and allowed me to make the decisions...Dr. Palta is amazing and I would recommend her to anyone. She truly cares and everything is run by her...also extremely caring but she is a personality and isn't for everyone. But I adore her and send her pictures of my son.

Dr. Palta got to know me and my story very well. She always talked to me about my concerns and allowed me to make the decisions.
Describe the protocols Vidya Palta used in your cycles at New York Fertility and their degree of success.
We never did the same thing twice. In the four years that I was under her care we tried everything. Lots of IUIs, and natural cycles between the IVF. We didn't waste any cycles, we were always trying something. I tried every possible combo of drugs imaginable. What finally worked was a transfer protocol from a reproductive immunologist, Dr. Thornton. He worked closely with Dr. Palta and it took 342 injections from transfer to live birth, it worked.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at New York Fertility.
She mostly hires college students and not actual nurses. They are young and eager to learn, most want to work in the medical field. But while they want to learn, they are still learning and are often not quite up to the tasks at hand.
Describe your experience with New York Fertility.
Dr. Palta is amazing and I would recommend her to anyone. She truly cares and everything is run by her. However, her staff is young and need to be checked on and you need to be on top of them. Dr. Palta is also extremely caring but she is a personality and isn't for everyone. But I adore her and send her pictures of my son.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vidya Palta at New York Fertility.
She charged me co-pays for most of my care, so that was based on my insurance. She works with other doctors for the actual egg retrieval's and transfers, but the costs were reasonable.
Describe Vidya Palta's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at New York Fertility.
She always let me make my own choices. At first she advised a single transfer as time went on she said we could do two embryos. But I never wanted to and she never pushed.
