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. Hancock met with us EACH visit, answering a litany of questions...cycle became extended because not all of the eggs were maturing at the same time...had produced only one fertilized egg...she alleviated all of my concerns...suggested IVF, with us freezing our one surviving egg to do genetic testing. This was done because we are a little older.
Spring Fertility Clinic offered us much more warmth and positivity along our challenging journey...highly competent staff, including Nerissa and Kristen, was much more positive...had an attitude of hope while preparing us for the fact that we may have to repeat this process...surrounded by an atmosphere of positivity
How was your experience with Kolbe Hancock at Spring Fertility New York?
We wholeheartedly recommend Spring Fertility Clinic. My wife and I had an excellent experience from start to finish, in which we welcomed our healthy baby boy Liam to the world. In comparison to the first fertility clinic we tried, Spring Fertility Clinic offered us much more warmth and positivity along our challenging journey. The “other” fertility clinic: We met our doctor only once. While visiting the clinic during each cycle, the nurse would coldly discuss our next cycle, implying the current cycle would fail. We understand fertility clinics need to prepare patients for failed cycles, this is part of the process, but the tone was very negative. They ASSUMED a negative result rather than PREPARING us for a possible negative result. The staff was nice, but the overall experience felt like a factory, as we passed through a conveyor belt. Spring Fertility Clinic: From the initial visit, the vibe with Spring Fertility was much different. Dr. Hancock met with us EACH visit, answering a litany of questions. At Spring Fertility Clinic, the highly competent staff, including Nerissa and Kristen, was much more positive. Our first cycle had low odds of success, the cycle became extended because not all of the eggs were maturing at the same time. By the end of this extended cycle, we had produced only one fertilized egg. Spring Fertility had an attitude of hope while preparing us for the fact that we may have to repeat this process. Luckily for us, our one egg defied the odds and grew into our baby Liam. We desperately wanted a sibling for our daughter Emilija, Spring Fertility made that happen. While everyone’s struggle with fertility and eventual results will be different, Spring Fertility offers the warmth patients need when struggling with fertility. Everyone struggling with fertility deserves to be surrounded by an atmosphere of positivity. If you are struggling with fertility, you should make an appointment with Spring Fertility and discuss your situation. Good luck everyone.

I didn’t have much hope. Dr fischer did an hour consult w me. Went over what had happened in the past, and came up w a new plan. She gave honest opinions on treatments and never gave false promises but definitely gave me the ability to want to try one more time. She was at every visit, she explained everything to me...Dr Fischer gave my husband and I a son and my daughter a sibling.
Spring is full of great communicators. I never had to worry about next steps or what was coming. They took care of everything and made sure to tell me all of the details. When I had questions they were always answered within 24hrs but usually by close of business. I always had total faith that things were being taken care of...I recommend Dr Fischer to everyone who needs hope. Don’t waste your time and money going other places. Just go to Spring.
How was your experience with Catha Fischer at Spring Fertility New York?
I came to Dr Fischer somewhat broken. I had had multiple failures over the course of 2 years at the “best and “most prominent “ fertility clinics across the country . I didn’t have much hope. Dr fischer did an hour consult w me. Went over what had happened in the past, and came up w a new plan. She gave honest opinions on treatments and never gave false promises but definitely gave me the ability to want to try one more time. She was at every visit, she explained everything to me, and I seriously felt like her team were my best friends while I was in treatment. I miss them! I’m looking at my baby boy right now. Dr Fischer gave my husband and I a son and my daughter a sibling. We have two more boys on ice. There are no words to describe the gift that she has given us. I recommend Dr Fischer to everyone who needs hope. Don’t waste your time and money going other places. Just go to Spring.

Dr. Hancock was awesome from beginning to end. She made sure I felt comfortable, helped me make my decisions along the way, and checked in on me multiple times after my egg retrieval. She was generally reassuring and encouraging, and as a result I was confident I was in good hands...Very warm in greetings, and very careful/slow/clear when doing ultrasound exams - she gave clear heads up when she was about to do anything and explained what she saw. She answered my questions with patience.
Very welcoming environment [at Spring Fertility], easy to work with, they looked out for me and made sure I was helped all along the way. They have a variety of resources from nurses to financial consultants that helped me take control of my logistics...My primary nurse was exceptional - we sat together to do my first shots, she demo'd how to use the tools when I was still learning, she called me every day to check on me, and she made my IV on the day of really easy and painless, which was especially big for me because I'm generally scared of needles :) I felt very cared for and a huge part of it was the nursing team.

Very warm in greetings, and very careful/slow/clear when doing ultrasound exams - she gave clear heads up when she was about to do anything and explained what she saw. She answered my questions with patience. She also made sure that for any questions I had that a nurse should support that a member of that team picked me up and spent time 1:1. Lots of communication throughout the process, which I really appreciated.

Dr. Yoder was wonderful...explained the process step by step and her team was on top of everything...27 eggs retrieved, 23 frozen...was super supportive and kind..visits with her were short so there was not much time for discussion, but she did answer my questions when I had them.

Dr. Hancock is very a very regimented and capable doctor...Dr. Hancock made sure to let me know to contact her through the portal and raise any questions or concerns I ever had...I felt like a human because I used my own patient advocacy, along with humor, to ensure I voiced my concerns. I feel that if the caseload was significantly higher, I may have felt more like a number, because the process of follicle counting can feel very rote after the first few follow ups...
Incredibly comfortable and chic clinic [Spring Fertility] which made the frequent and invasive check-up process more bearable. Very strong and compassionate nursing team, with knowledgeable and kind doctors who are fertility experts. Tight communications within the team, which was evident based on my questions to the team and their knowledge of my case details...Medication package was flat fee. Standard treatment prices...
