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.

Every step was explained fully so we were very comfortable [with Dr. Lead Bressler]...had medicated and monitored IUI cycles...letrozole for 5 days, then a trigger shot, IUI, and then vaginal progesterone after ovulation...prefer a single embryo transfer...able to meet virtually a couple of times
team at Shady Grove was so kind and helpful...trying to get us in for times that worked for our schedules...communication has always been excellent through phone calls and their online portal..protocols for treatment seemed individualized and tailored to us specifically
How was your experience with Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
With nothing to compare it to, I had no idea what to expect from a fertility clinic, but I can’t imagine a better doctor or experience than with Dr. Bressler at Shady Grove! We were able to meet virtually a couple of times, which was a huge timesaver for our busy work schedules. I was also really stressing about how many appts there would be and trying to work with my inflexible work schedule in healthcare, as well as my husbands residency schedule. Luckily the team at Shady Grove was so kind and helpful in bending over backwards trying to get us in for times that worked for our schedules. Their communication has always been excellent through phone calls and their online portal, and the protocols for treatment seemed individualized and tailored to us specifically, which helped lead to a positive outcome!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
You're in great hands! No question is dumb, and she will work tirelessly for success.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
The team was also so truly invested in our journey and ultimately so happy for our success, which made it feel like this is more than just a job to them!
Describe the protocols Leah Bressler used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas and their degree of success.
We had medicated and monitored IUI cycles. Every step was explained fully so we were very comfortable. I took letrozole for 5 days, then a trigger shot, IUI, and then vaginal progesterone after ovulation. This was the first line of defense for our unexplained infertility, and since there was a question of egg quality the idea was to release more than 1 egg (per letrozole) in hopes that one of them would be good quality for making an embryo. We were successful on the 2nd cycle! With that cycle I didn't take the final dose of letrozole since my labs indicated I would have an earlier ovulation, so we triggered a little earlier in the cycle. I did have 2 cysts from the previous round of letrozole, but my labs showed they weren't producing hormones so we were OK to proceed with the 2nd IUI, and we are SO GLAD we did!

Describe your experience with Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas.
The clinic recently moved to a beautiful new facility. I had no issues with the previous office, but I think they have a lot more space now, which will probably help moving forward! We were so pleased with our experience and luckily our fertility journey was not super long compared to many others, so they really excelled in helping us achieve our goal!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas.
Blood tests were often done through LabCorp so we billed through health insurance. I had a HyFoSy done and the out of pocket cost was around $900-1000, which is currently still working through insurance but I anticipate paying out of pocket. The IUIs were $1200 each, not including medications, which were maybe $100 (trigger shot was the most costly around $75 each). I didn't have any insurance coverage for fertility treatments so it was all out of pocket. Shady Grove has a shared cost program for IVF that if you pay a little more (nearly $30k if I recall), they will do many egg retrievals and transfers to result in a live birth and if it does not result in a live birth, then there is a refund. Luckily I didn't have to utilize this, but I would have done this if we moved to IVF since I think I would've needed more than one egg retrieval so cost would've made sense for us.
Describe Leah Bressler's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas.
We didn't proceed to IVF, but in speaking about it, they seemed to prefer a single embryo transfer.

Dr. Mersereau is amazing...lost my fallopian tubes... endometriosis...always extremely helpful, compassionate, and followed all of our wishes...was very good at explaining all of the details and possibilities every step of the way...transferred 1 embryo because of my age and the likelihood for success and the increased risks
[AT Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas] Every single staff member I worked with was amazing...extremely helpful and communicative...shared risk program...loved all the nurses and staff...literally cried with me when I found out I was pregnant and they were so kind and supportive...extremely dedicated
How was your experience with Jennifer Mersereau at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
Dr. Mersereau is amazing! I unfortunately lost my fallopian tubes to hydrosalpinx and IVF was the only option for my husband and I to conceive. The process was difficult (of course), but I am convinced it was as painless as possible and we were very lucky our first embryo stuck. She was always extremely helpful, compassionate, and followed all of our wishes. Our little one was born just over a week ago and we couldn’t be happier! I also have endometriosis, so I really wanted my embryos genetically tested to try and have a boy so I didn’t pass my problems on to my child (my mom and grandma also have it and I’ve had significant complications). She made sure this happened and we are so lucky to have a perfectly healthy baby boy. Her attention to our wishes such as this one was really important to us and part of why we loved her so much. She also was very good at explaining all of the details and possibilities every step of the way and that is always very important to me as a patient.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Mersereau at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
Make sure you are completely open about your wants, needs, and expectations and don’t be afraid to ask questions or voice your concerns.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Mersereau at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
All of the staff was extremely kind and supportive. I had a lot of questions and concerns (including a subchorionic hematoma after I was pregnant) and they never made me feel bad or like I was overreacting when I brought up anything. I had extra ultrasounds to ease my nerves and they even made sure to get me in same day when I was really worried.
Describe the protocols Jennifer Mersereau used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas and their degree of success.
I don’t remember the names of all the specific protocols or the doses of my medications, but I do know that Dr. Mersereau was able to get plenty of eggs from my first retrieval, 18 of which fertilized, and after genetic testing we were left with 7 eggs (6 girls and 1 boy). Due to my endometriosis I wanted a boy to avoid passing it down to him and she was able to successfully transfer the male embryo and I now have a happy and healthy miracle baby boy. I trust her recommendations completely as they all resulted in success the first time. I know part of it is luck and even if you do all the right protocols there isn’t 100% success, but I feel confident she chose the best protocols for me and my situation because if she hadn’t we wouldn’t have had success at every step the first time.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas. (Assigned nurse: Wendy)
I absolutely loved all the nurses and staff at SGF! They literally cried with me when I found out I was pregnant and they were so kind and supportive. I can’t imagine having a better, more compassionate care team. They are also extremely dedicated and communicative, even on evenings and weekends when they don’t have to be.
Describe your experience with Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas.
I’m so glad I chose SGF for this journey. Every single staff member I worked with was amazing and I ended up with exactly what I came in for - a beautiful miracle baby. They were extremely helpful and communicative every step of the way. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, voice concerns, or state your wants/needs during the process because mine were all addressed in a helpful, respectful manner.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jennifer Mersereau at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas.
We went with the program where you get a certain number of transfers and if you aren’t successful you get your money back. I believe it was called the shared risk program. This didn’t include medication, but did include most other costs. All in all we spent about $40,000.
Describe Jennifer Mersereau's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas.
We transferred 1 embryo because of my age and the likelihood for success and the increased risks for me specifically if I were to have multiples. It was the best choice for us.

Dr. Bressler still went above and beyond to call me directly with updated treatment plans, test results...was able to schedule an appointment with her directly whenever I had specific questions...is incredibly knowledgable, and also kind and caring...was both emotionally and medically supportive...news that I was pregnant, she cried tears of joy right along with us.
staff at Shady Grove are all incredibly personable, friendly, and supportive...have smiling faces cheering you on along the way, from the front desk staff, nurses, and PA...All of the nursing staff and the PA I saw throughout my visits were very friendly, knowledgeable, and supportive
How was your experience with Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
This was my first experience at a fertility clinic and I wasn't sure what to expect. I have heard from others that with most fertility clinics, you won't get to see or speak to the doctor very often and that you primarily communicate with nurses. While I did communicate with the nurse frequently, Dr. Bressler still went above and beyond to call me directly with updated treatment plans, test results, and I was able to schedule an appointment with her directly whenever I had specific questions. She is incredibly knowledgable, and also kind and caring. Throughout all of the difficult news I received during my treatment, she was both emotionally and medically supportive, and when we received the news that I was pregnant, she cried tears of joy right along with us.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
Dr. Bressler is kind and compassionate. She always ensured that all of my questions were answered and it is clear that she genuinely cares about her patients and is rooting for the best outcome right alongside us.

Describe your experience with Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas.
The staff at Shady Grove are all incredibly personable, friendly, and supportive. When you are going through such emotionally difficult treatments, it helps to have smiling faces cheering you on along the way, from the front desk staff, nurses, and PA, to the doctors. Overall, my experience at this clinic was great and I would highly recommend them.

Dr. M is so kind and nurturing. She understood how fragile and exhausted I was with it all when I stepped into her office, and she made me feel welcome and comfortable as I shared our story. She is genuinely interested and listens to how hard the path has been. In addition, she clearly explained the steps we can take together, as well as what we could expect from them.
Describe the protocols Jennifer Mersereau used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas and their degree of success.
We have experienced 5 miscarriages (2 prior to my son and 3 since his birth). Due to my age and recurrent pregnancy loss, we have undergone a ton of testing to try to figure out what is causing this. We started with blood tests to rule out any clotting diseases, immune responses, and unbalances, and to check my ovarian reserve. Those all came back normal so we then did a saline ultrasound to check my anatomy. That looked normal as well. We did an endometrial biopsy at that time and that came back positive for Chronic Endometritis which I was promptly treated for. We also did a semen specimen to check for male factors. We are now planning to move forward with an IUI as my chronic endometritis has been healed.

How was your experience with Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
Dr. Bressler impressed me when after having our consultation, I had gotten pregnant without intervention but was experiencing some early bleeding. Naturally this was alarming and I was brought in the next day for an ultrasound. However this was not with Dr. Bressler. What impressed me and truly touched me was that later prior to the appointment she called me to check in and said she would be with a patient during that time but would check in again at a later time. That evening she called to touch base and answer any further questions I had. That small act of kindness and time out of her schedule made all the difference for a worried and scared first time mom-to-be.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
Dr. Bressler treated our case with individuality as each situation varies and created a specific treatment plan based on what we had experienced. She was kind and sympathetic to the losses we had experienced.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas.

[Dr. Leah Bressler] made sure we were always on the same page to keep things moving swiftly, as my partner and I were very eager to get pregnant. Each and every update was given by Dr. B by phone and she was always very compassionate...never treated my partner and I any differently than (I imagine) she would have a heterosexual couple
[Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas] only has strengths. I didn’t not have a single issue with any of the staff. Each person was extremely kind and caring. They all went above and beyond to make us feel like a priority...Wendy was my saving grace. She was there for me at every beck and call and only ever made me feel heard and seen
How was your experience with Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
Dr. B was able to get my partner and I in for our very first consultation very quickly. From there she made sure we were always on the same page to keep things moving swiftly, as my partner and I were very eager to get pregnant. Each and every update was given by Dr. B by phone and she was always very compassionate. I would recommend Dr. B to any and everyone.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
Going into this process, I was not given any advice and even so I felt as though Dr. B was able to walk me hand in hand through everything. After a few failed IUIs she suggested other treatment options without me having to ask. I felt as though she never took advantage of our situation and only ever wanted the best of outcomes for my partner and I.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
Dr. B personally reached out to me with any updates on all 4 of my cycles. She also saw me personally when I had bleeding very early on in my current pregnancy. I felt like a priority to her throughout the entire process.
How competent was Leah Bressler at LGBTQ+ care?
Dr. B never treated my partner and I any differently than (I imagine) she would have a heterosexual couple. She always included my wife in any updates and never made us feel any indifference.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas. (Assigned nurse: Wendy)
The entire staff at SGF are amazing but Wendy was my saving grace. She was there for me at every beck and call and only ever made me feel heard and seen. When I had concerns she would message/call me back instantly, even after hours a couple times. I had a lot of anxiety around my egg retrieval and she talked me through it & even held my hand as I went under. I truly feel as though Wendy was my guardian angel through the entire process.
Describe your experience with Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas.
This clinic, in my opinion, only has strengths. I didn’t not have a single issue with any of the staff. Each person was extremely kind and caring. They all went above and beyond to make us feel like a priority.

How was your experience with Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
Dr. Bressler looked at my case individually and gave me a more realistic picture of my chances of conceiving and carefully explained my options. She never made me feel pressured and always supported in my care decisions, checking in regularly to see if I had questions or need anything along the way. When we ended up beating the odds and conceiving naturally, I could tell she was so excited for me and my family.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Leah Bressler at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas?
Dr. Bressler and the staff at SGF have been so wonderful during our fertility journey. We were previously at another local clinic, where to be honest we didn't realize how bad it was until our wonderful first meeting with Dr. Bressler and the follow up care we received. Dr. Bressler really took time to examine my particular circumstances and provided insightful and compassionate council vs a blanketed assessment based on a text book diagnosis. I believe that her care in assessing my situation as an individual played a major role in my positive outcome. I hope that all who face fertility challenges get to receive the type of wonderful care that I (and my family) did, and can't recommend Dr. Bressler and SGF enough!
Describe the protocols Leah Bressler used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility Carolinas and their degree of success.
For my diagnosis my options were to pursue donor egg IVF or to try naturally understanding there was only about a 10% chance given my labs. When I wanted to try naturally she helped me find the correct dosage for my HRT and recommended supplements and throughly explained possible side effects. At my previous clinic I was told my only option was donor egg IVF and that my case was pretty much hopeless.
