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.

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.

He [Dr Vicken Sepilian] was very friendly, and gentle. He always explained every step thoroughly. We often made conversation outside of the strict doctor-patient relationship...Have faith in his abilities even if he looks younger than most doctors....I could always get through to him or the nurse when I called. They were both very pleasant, friendly, and gentle. They explained everything and answered all questions and the nurse even visited me at home to help with injections.

But the clinic was beautiful with a very relaxed environment. Also it was multicultural which as foreigner I really appreciated.
