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 Dayal is compassionate, caring, and listens to my concerns.... Lovenox and intralipids for mthfr and recurrent loss.... She’s compassionate and honest. She is a good listener. She explains everything carefully. She sets out a treatment plan for your treatment type and will try to adjust as needed. Only thing I would change is the fact that there is no way to communicate with her directly; you have to communicate with your nurse if there is something you need to communicate with her.
Friendly and great staff [at SIRM STL]. Weakness would be billing and the fact that you can’t communicate directly with your doctor. If you need to communicate with your doctor you will have to leave a message with your nurse and she will tell/ask your doctor and your nurse will get back to you with an answer.... Lovenox and intralipids for mthfr and recurrent loss.... She [the nurse] listens to all my ideas and answers all my questions quickly.

Dr. Witten is very knowledgeable. However there were times where I felt unsure of next steps, I didnt have a clear plan of what was next and why I was doing certain tests. He was compassionate and genuinely seemed liked he wanted to help. There was also a language barrier, but for the most part I understood his communication...I had a lot of blood tests to determine follicle count, ovarian reserve. I also had an xray with dye to determine if my tubes were open. Lots of ultrasounds to look at my uterus and eggs to determin ovulation. Lastly, I had a MRI.
They [nurses at Sher Fertility of St. Louis] were always very friendly and patient. Defintely compassionate and showed empathy for my fertility struggles...Wait time was a little long. I do appreciate them filling out paperwork for me to get a grant. They were always pleasant, the location was convenient, and clinic was nice and clean.

Dr. Dayal is very professional, but also very warm. Her recommendations and treatments all seem to be evidence driven, which my partner and I appreciate. I never felt like she was just "humoring" my partner or myself, even when our questions may have been slightly neurotic.... Dr. Dayal has always been very warm and open with us. She seems to genuinely care about helping us conceive a child, and has been very open with her own experiences with infertility.
I don't know that I have anything negative to say about the clinic [Sher-St. Louis] . I don't doubt that there are probably cheaper clinics (I think they have a tendency to require more blood testing than other clinics for example), but aside from that, the we've had a great experience. The staff are all very helpful and knowledgable at their jobs, and seem to be genuinely interested in helping us reach our goals.

My experience as a patient [of Dr. Molina Dayal] was excellent. The entire time I was comfortable and had no problem getting all of my questions answered. I would never go to another doctor. I feel more prepared at conquering infertility than I did before seeing Dr. Dayal...I was diagnosed with borderline PCOS so we tried an IUI with Letrozole to begin with because I wanted to be aggressive. After it didn't work, Dr. Dayal said that we could try conceiving on our own with the help of meds. Beside Letrozole, we used the injectable Menopure along with a viagra suppository. My body responded well each time to the meds.
My IUIs [at Sher Fertility of St. Louis] were $1,000 plus the cost of meds...This clinic has so much experience behind it.

I researched immunology issues further and found Dr. Dayal. I scheduled a Skype consult and immediately knew after talking to her for just a short time that she was going to do everything she could to figure out why I wasn't getting pregnant. She ordered several tests that helped diagnose my infertility and scheduled a HSG which I had not had prior. Every visit with her is informative and she is very compassionate. You can tell that she loves what she does and is very passionate about it.

She does whatever she can to try and get you pregnant! :) My experience with her was great even though it didn't end in pregnancy.
I believe each IUI [at Sher Fertility] was $600 which included the sperm wash. I also had intralipid infusions that were $150 each...I think this clinic is great...The staff there is amazing.

She [Dr. Dayal] is smart, patient and relatable! Best experience when the subject isn’t always so positive! I was so nervous since we had tried a different doctor at a different clinic and she calmed every nerve I had. Never felt rushed and could call her even on her personal cell if i needed anything. Am blessed to find such a caring doctor...Did have to use blood thinners with my anti thrombin three difficency.

I never waited long after my appointment time.
How was your experience with Maureen "Moe" Schulte at STL Fertility?
In all honesty Dr Schulte is an amazing doctor. She was the first fertility specialist I been a patient of. So when meeting her I didn’t know what to expect. I was nervous,scared,angry, and sad that I even had to meet her. That’s because I didn’t understand why I was going through what I was to be young. She made me feel like everything was going to be ok and that she will be there for me. My overall experience was great being in a first timer to infertility.

When frost meeting Dr Schulte and explaining to her my situation. She told that everything will be ok and they we will get to the bottom of it. We set a plan to redo a test to make sure the result were correct and if they were the next steps we would take. She also seen that I was struggling with everything she gave me a hug an reassured me that me that we will figure it out.
Describe the protocols Maureen "Moe" Schulte used in your cycles at STL Fertility and their degree of success.
I haven’t had any treatments done only testing. When I came to her I had just found out my tubes were blocked due to me requesting an HSG test from my OB. I showed Dr Schulte my result from the test and she suggested I take another HSG. That’s because there were only 2 images and their wording wasn’t exactly saying their were blocked. So she wanted to make sure they were and if their were blocked she wanted to do a recanalization to see if we could get them open. We did the test over they were initially blocked at the uterus . They were able to get them open at uterus but couldn’t successfully get them open completely. After the test was over we talk and she told me that IVF would be the route I needed to take to have a child of my own.
Describe your experience with your nurse at STL Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Ray)
Dr. Schulte nurses was Ray. She was very helpful she called and talk to my insurance to make the procedure was covered. She arranged the appointment with the hospital. She made sure she informed with the info and appointment date. I called her to let her know when I started my cycle so we could my the appointments. Then if she couldn’t get an appointment she made sure she called me and told. She apologized to me because we had to keep rescheduling even know it wasn’t on them but she understood that my situation was already hard and not knowing answers was even harder.

Dr. Mo was extremely thorough and found our struggles to be male factor. She was very clear on the plan and has been quick to respond to questions, show care, and makes us feel seen. She makes us feel like she wants this just as bad as we do and that we finally have a doctor on our team. We are excited to start this journey with her.

Dr. Dayal listened to my concerns and watched my labs very closely and adjusted my meds when it was neeeded. When I planned for a fresh embryo transfer and started feeling sick she knew we had to cancel so I didn’t get OHSS which I was very concerned about.... Dr. Dayal looked at our past retrieval and saw flags with my past fertility doctor and made sure I was well taken cared of.
The clinics [Sher Fertility of STL] strengths would be compassion for their patients. A weakness would be communication through email. Would have liked to talk on phone more and being more direct. I liked the option of Skyping with Dr. Dayal in Peoria, Il when she was in STL.... They [the nursing staff] took care of me during my ultrasounds and my retrieval. They answered my questions and listened to my concerns.

He [Dr. Barry Witten] was thorough and answered all the questions we had. If something came to mind after we left we were able to call and still get answers. He has excellent bedside manner and is easy to talk to. His time working as a specialist and referrals from previous patients put my mind at ease. I wish we could have covered more and received a baby from this.... Standard workup included bloodwork, ultrasounds, semen analysis, and a thorough explanation of each step in the process. Monitoring of cycles, timed intercourse, and clomid cycles.
