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.

As a patient, I couldn’t be more pleased [with Dr. Michael Putman]...Since I was a teenager, ive suffered from endometriosis and it’s symptoms. Dr.Putman did my surgery in 2018 and This is the best I’ve felt in over 15 years. No pain or nausea medications!! I’m truly grateful for being under his care...We are in the process of IVF. We’ve used so far.. Gonal F, Menopur, estrogen and progesterone ... all were for egg retrieval . We had to postpone our embryo transfer due to my uterine lining not being thick enough. So we will begin lupron in a week.
Andrea [nurse at Fertility Center of Dallas] is amazing! I tell her all of the time. She’s knowledgeable, compassionate, and she’s truly made for this career!...I actually love the entire office! I have no complaints. Their strengths are organization, compassion, and their flexibility getting you an appointment with the Doctor. I’m a nurse and I have been with this office as a patient since July 2018, and this is by far the best experience I’ve ever had!

My experience is a little different than most. I am apart of Baylor Scott and Whites Uterine Transplant Study. I was born with MRKH. Which in the easiest way to explain is that I was born with out a uterus. I had a Uterine Transplant in October of 2018. The way I found Dr.Putman is because he is actually the IVF doctor that is apart of the clinical trial, but I wouldn’t have chosen any one else. Like the rest of the Uterine Transplant team he is amazing and caring and an amazing doctor.
I would say the clinic [Fertility Center of Dallas- Dallas] is very on top of things at all times. They are good about scheduling, and taking care of your needs. The office is warm and inviting. It is definitely a place you feel safe at.... Medications costs around $10,000 + Egg retrieval/Embryo Transfer -$9,000 PGS testing - $2,500 Visits ( per ) - ( with no insurance ) $150-$250 or more depending on the visit

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
I would tell them to just be honest. I feel like he is honest with us and you need to be honest with him so he can get to the bottom of things to help you start your family.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
He seemed to really care about us and he continued to check in to see how things were going. His office was very professional and all the nurses that worked there are very sweet.
Describe the protocols Michael Putman used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Dallas and their degree of success.
Because I am apart of a study my protocol may be different than the others. I did my egg retrieval before my transplant so I had my frozen embryos waiting for me for after surgery and recovery time. I’m 21 years old so for my husband and I our fertility journey although is very different, the egg retrieval and sperm count were good because we are so young. In February we had our first embryo transfer and I am 10 weeks today.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Dallas. (Assigned nurse: Andria, and Jan )
Andria, and Jan are the sweetest. They do everything they can to make sure you are comfortable. They are very detailed when explaining all the shots and medications that I would be taking. And they make sure I know what I am doing also.

Describe Michael Putman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Dallas.
Because of the study/trial we were only allowed to do a single embryo transfer. My husband and I are strong in our faith and believe that if that one embryo is meant to take then it will take. So we had no concerns with only transferring one embryo.

He [Dr. Michael Putman] is an older guy and a bit on the quirky side. He isn't one to chit chat but you can tell he really cares about your progress and wants his patients to do the best they can. The staff was always adjusting my medicine based on my visits to match with my hormone levels so my body could respond in the best way possible. The staff overall was very great and worked well together. They were always aware of my progress and checked in almost everyday.
The office [Fertility Center of Dallas- Rockwell] is small so you get familiar with everyone pretty quickly. They are very well organized and the wait time in the lobby isn't long. They move you in and out pretty quickly which is very nice. They are very efficient. I loved how they all knew me and the names of my husband and daughter. It helped give it a personal touch.... She was very organized and on top of it. Always checking in and making sure I was progressing in a way to be the most successful during this proces

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
The transvaginal ultrasounds are the worst in the beginning but get a bit easier over time as you know what to expect. I was totally surprised by the way they monitor the ovaries at my first visit but it's just so they can get a closer sonogram of the ovaries.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
The whole staff knew my name without having to look at my paperwork. They even know my husband and baby girl's name as well. They were very aware and sensitive with my situation and I had direct assess to them with any questions I had along the way especially the medicine. They have a great on call staff for after business hours so I didn't have to worry if I had questions on the weekend if I had to start new medicine, I knew I could call and speak to someone right away.
Describe the protocols Michael Putman used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Dallas and their degree of success.
I did the egg retrieval for IVF process. It was a 6 week period where I started with birth control for roughly 15 days, and then moved onto the Lupron (daily evening shot) for roughly 10 days, and them moved onto a series of 3 other medicines that were given by shots. I counted 73 shots by the end of it. It gets easier over time but I remember feeling foggy and tired a lot of the time. By the end, I felt so swollen and bloated from my ovaries growing so much.

Dr. Putman seems to be a very knowledgeable and experienced doctor who knows his field well. He's not the warm and fuzzy type and can be somewhat abrupt, but I never doubted his medical abilities. If you need a doctor to walk you through step by step and give you lots of sensitivity this may not be the one for you, but if you want someone who has lots of experience and will do what needs to be done, he can do that.
Appointments are fairly short and sometimes feel rushed, but the clinic [Fertility Center of Dallas] is small enough that the doctor and staff do generally remember you and your specific situation.... I think the greatest strength is the clinic's size. Dr. Putman is now the only doctor there so you always know who you will see. The size may also be a weakness because they have limited time to see patients and can be rushed, but generally that hasn't been a huge issue.

Describe the protocols Michael Putman used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Dallas and their degree of success.
Frozen transfer cycles using birth control, lupron, then estrogen and progesterone injections.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses are friendly and competent. You can tell that they're very busy, but I never felt ignored and they always answered my questions.

I think the greatest strength is the clinic's size. Dr. Putman is now the only doctor there so you always know who you will see. The size may also be a weakness because they have limited time to see patients and can be rushed, but generally that hasn't been a huge issue. The embryologist Dr. Zhang is also excellent and helpful with answering any questions you have.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas.
A frozen embryo transfer is about $2,500, but that doesn't include medications or some other pre-transfer procedures and appointments. All together I think one FET cycle is between $5000 and $6000 depending on meds.

Dr.Putman we very thorough with me and didn’t want us to risk or worry about anything. He worked with our geographical issues and answered all our questions and treated us like family. Though only one attempt was successful, I plan on going back for another try because I respect him and know I will receive the best care under him.... First, Dr. Putman wanted to rid me of my Endometriosis. After a long surgery, he sent us home to try to get pregnant naturally for 6 months.
Everyone [Fertility Center of Dallas] there is very nice and helpful! The clinic is clean and you can tell they all love their jobs.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
After the awful experience I had before Dr.Putman, I wasn’t expecting much. Dr.Putman is such a great doctor and listened to my concerns, performed a surgery ridding me of my Endometriosis, and giving me the best thing in my life; my son!
Describe the protocols Michael Putman used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Dallas and their degree of success.
First, Dr. Putman wanted to rid me of my Endometriosis. After a long surgery, he sent us home to try to get pregnant naturally for 6 months. Once that failed, he brought us in and we did a fresh cycle. I made 54 eggs and put if that, 18 were viable. He did half normal half ICSI and only 6 of the ICSI made to blast. None of them were maturing but at day 5, we put in 2. He left the other out for 2 more days and froze those. My first did not take and a year later we did a frozen transfer. One took of those and we have a beautiful, smart little man. We tried another frozen 2 years later but the embryos didn’t make it past thaw so we could not transfer.

I think the he [Dr. Michael Putman] has a very good bedside manner. He also is very compassionate and has a very thought out treatment plan. My only complaint is that he can be overly aggressive. He only wants me to try using his techniques for 3 months before starting IVF. I have had endocrine issues since I was a child. After three months of trying we were immediately sent to him. We have only been trying for 7 months. It seems overly aggressive to try for 3 months using his techniques and then throw in the towel and commit to costly IVF. He is also very eager to cut me open to examine my uterus etc. First was to see if my tubes were blocked which turned out not to be. This time if I don’t get pregnant he wants to do exploratory surgery to see if I have endometriosis. I have no symptoms of endometriosis. I wish he would adjust his aggressiveness to suit each patient. That is my only complaint. Overall he seems knowledgeable and compassionate.
The front staff [at Fertility Center of Dallas-Dallas] is very very unsympathetic about the financial burden associated with infertility. They are also incredibly bad about billing to your insurance company. I called and left a message asking why and no one returned my call. Once when I checked out the girl asked me “how much do we typically charge you” instead of entering the codes to find out the cost. Additionally, the semenologist is quite odd. I assume you must be to do that job. My husband’s complaint was that the way he was instructed to clean himself to give the sample was not hygienic. Ie he was told to wash himself off in the sink in the bathroom.

Adjust your aggressive treatment plan to suit patients needs. Also, be more conscious and aware of the finiancial cost of treatment especially when your insurance doesn’t cover any infertility.

He makes you feel like he wants you to get pregnant and is hopeful that everyone will be able to experience that joy
Describe the protocols Michael Putman used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Dallas and their degree of success.
I had to HSG tests because the first one was inconclusive. If they had given me Valium I wouldn’t of had to pay an additional $2,000 for a second HSG. He now has me on Femara starting day 3 of my cycle till day 8. Then using a Novarel to trigger ovulation. Then we try naturally to get pregnant. He wants me to try this for 3 months. If I don’t get pregnant then we do surgery to see if I have endometriosis, and if I don’t then IVF.

Krissie is literally the best nurse I’ve ever meet. I can’t say enough good things about her. She is incredibly responsive, caring, compassionate, positive, and reassuring.

He is very kind and smart and very good at what he does. He does not give false hope but states facts in a gentle way. He won’t promise anything he can’t deliver but would always tell me he would do his best.... I have severe DOR and had failed cycles at another clinic. He put me on back to back AACEP cycles to bank embryos. We did low dose Lupron then started cetrotide and then started Gonal-F (high dose!) then added menopur. Estrogen priming was part of my protocol too
It [the cost at Fertility Center of Dallas] was comparable to other clinics in my area. Actually we seemed to save a little paying for two back to back cycles compared to what we had paid for one cycle eksewhere... They [the staff] are so sweet and caring and very good at what they do. They got back to me via email or phone same day, they talked to my pharmacy, my insurance, etc

How was your experience with Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
He is very kind and smart and very good at what he does. He does not give false hope but states facts in a gentle way. He won’t promise anything he can’t deliver but would always tell me he would do his best.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
Dr Putman is the best person to see for really anyone but especially if you are not a good responder to treatment. I had no success for a year at another clinic but was pregnant with twins within 4 months of seeing Dr Putman. Honestly I love him and I thank God for him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
He is the kindest person. His entire staff is very nice. Once I had to call him after hours and he called me back himself right away and knew exactly who I was and reassured me and gave clear instructions on what to do next.
Describe the protocols Michael Putman used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Dallas and their degree of success.
I have severe DOR and had failed cycles at another clinic. He put me on back to back AACEP cycles to bank embryos. We did low dose Lupron then started cetrotide and then started Gonal-F (high dose!) then added menopur. Estrogen priming was part of my protocol too. We got 3 embryos the first cycle and froze, then 1 embryo the second cycle. We transferred the best 2 and I’m having twins (currently 21 weeks pregnant).
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Dallas. (Assigned nurse: Jan, Andrea, Shelley, Chrissy, DR ZHANG 😍)
The entire staff is amazing and I love them
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Dallas.
Do exactly what they say and you will have the best chance if success. They have the best success rates around just look at sart.org. They are so sweet and caring and very good at what they do. They got back to me via email or phone same day, they talked to my pharmacy, my insurance, etc
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas.
It was comparable to other clinics in my area. Actually we seemed to save a little paying for two back to back cycles compared to what we had paid for one cycle eksewhere
Describe Michael Putman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Dallas.
Well I don’t know, I have only had one transfer and we decided on 2 because neither of them were perfect looking, so they thought it would give us the best chance of pregnancy.

During my treatments he [Dr. Michael Putman] went out of town for a month and the I had to see the other dr in the office. But I was not aware that I was going to be passed to the other dr ahead of time... He did do the egg retrieval and transfer but he was not always available during my multiple check ups. I just wish I had more time with him and that some of my concerns were addressed.
I saw different nurses [at Fertility Center of Dallas]. They were friendly but didn’t really get to know me...I saw hair and what I thought was a dried drop of blood on the floor in the sterile surgical area. The person that drew my labs every other day was very nice. It did take a long time for the coordinator and financial person to call me back.I paid about $9000 up front but they never told me where I stood financially.

How was your experience with Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
Dr. Putman is highly regarded by his peers. I went to him because he is supposed to the best. He was very thorough in his explanations of what was going to happen but wasn’t clear about the success rate. I researched that all on my own. He did do the egg retrieval and transfer but he was not always available during my multiple check ups. I just wish I had more time with him and that some of my concerns were addressed.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
Do research on your own. Be very prepared and ask lots of questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?

Describe the protocols Michael Putman used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Dallas and their degree of success.
I was taking the OCP/Cetrotide /Babking cycle with Gonal, Menopur, and Cetrotide. My eggs weren’t being stimulated quick enough and I was on the protocol longer than normal. It ended up not working.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I saw different nurses. They were friendly but didn’t really get to know me.
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Dallas.
The clinic was nice but the lab and surgical area were not as clean as they should have been. I saw hair and what I thought was a dried drop of blood on the floor in the sterile surgical area. The person that drew my labs every other day was very nice. It did take a long time for the coordinator and financial person to call me back. I paid about $9000 up front but they never told me where I stood financially. When I asked, they provided a breakdown of it. I would advice anyone to be knowledgeable of the protocols an financials and ask questions if you don’t understand something.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Fertility Center of Dallas.
Dr. Putman was not available for almost all of my monitoring appointments so the other dr in the office did them.

Upfront payment was over $9000. That is not counting any copays for visits before I paid the large amount.
Describe Michael Putman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Dallas.
I only had 2 eggs available to transfer and he did both.

How was your experience with Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
Dr. Putman is a kind and gentle care provider. I have always felt that he takes the time, never rushing us through appointments. He is someone who doesn’t mess around with treatment options, yet, we never felt pressured to pursue more invasive interventions, such as IVF. Initially, my husband and I did not think IVF was right for us. Dr. Putman, suggested we start with other interventions first. When those were unsuccessful, he used that information to inform his next recommendations, and eventually, I underwent one round of IVF, producing two embryos. Dr. Putman, along with is Embryologist, Dr. Zhang, both felt like we could do better and changed my protocol accordingly for the second round, which I am getting ready to start. In addition, I felt that he was aware of my labs and results at all stages of the IVF process even changing protocol decisions along the way, including the type of trigger shot to use. Overall, I have had a very positive experience. However, I would have liked to have seen more alternative approaches incorporated into my treatment plan, including acupuncture, a review of harmful toxins, etc.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
Don’t expect him to force your hand and tell you what to do. He will make recommendations, but you will also need to have voice and advocate for yourself.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
In any practice, it is not just the doctor’s responsibility to make the patients feel like a human rather than a number. Every member of the Fertility Center of Dallas has made sure to treat me as a woman desperate for help. Certainly, Dr. Putman sets the standard, and every appointment I go to, I feel that he has familiarized himself with my file, ensuring he is prepared to answer all questions. He also includes my husband in the dialogue. He reflects on the data and manages to find the balance between simply explaining possible approaches while providing all the details.
Describe the protocols Michael Putman used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Dallas and their degree of success.
DIAGNOSTIC STAGE After initial consultation with Dr. Putman, he ran all the standard tests plus additional testing he recommended after IUI #2. The HSG revealed I have a possible blocked tube. Other tests indicate good reserves and AMH and FSH levels for my age. Once we started the IUIs and before we moved forward with IVF, we ran additional testing, including genetic testing via Horizon and natural killer cell testing. All were “normal.” My husband has some morphology issues and I have slight issues with hormone levels. IUI TREATMENTS 4 IUIs: 3 with natural ovulation (no trigger); 1 with an HCG trigger; all with Letrozole - IUI #1 (September 2016): Letrozole, no trigger shot, BFN. Ultrasounds starting around CD 10. IUI around CD15, one day after positive OPK. - IUI #2 (October 2016: Letrozole, no trigger shot, BFP, chemical pregnancy. We used OPKs and started monitoring with ultrasounds around CD 9 or 10 every two days or so. IUI happened on CD 14 or 15. It produced a positive pregnancy test with an HPT and beta on CD 28. Dr. Putman ran blood work every two days. HCG increased (12, 20 +/-), but did not double and by the fifth day after the initial beta test, HCG levels started to drop. I began to bleed 8 days after first beta. - IUI #3 (November 2016): Letrozole, no trigger shot, BFP, chemical pregnancy. We used OPKs and started monitoring with ultrasounds around CD 9 or 10 every two days or so. IUI happened on CD 14 or 15. It produced a very faint positive HPT for a couple of days (over 4 tests), but I was out of town for Thanksgiving and unable to run a beta. I started bleeding CD 32, four days after anticipated cycle start day. - IUI #4 (December 2016): Letrozole, HCG trigger shot, BFN. After the last IUI, we had a follow-up consultation with Dr. Putman. He had advised us that we would try three IUIs before moving on to next steps. There is no need to continue to try something that is not successful. However, we opted for one more IUI since I couldn’t start IVF until after the New Year anyway. He also presented the option of going in surgically to see if he notices anything else going on, specifically related to the blocked tube. Ultimately, we opted for the general work-around and started on the IVF journey. IVF TREATMENT IVF Cycle 1 (February 2017): OCP/Cetrotide Protocol (Antagonist) with ICSI and PGS - Doxycycline- 10 days - Lo-Ovral Cryselle OCPs for 21 days, no sugar pills - Menses: 4 days (didn’t start until day 4 and started stimulation the next day. - Stimulation for 11 days o Day 1-Day 3: 225 IU Gonal-F in AM; 75 IU Gonal-F in PM; 2 vials of Menopur (75 IU each) in PM • Estrogen spiked significantly so Dr. Putman removed second Gonal-F injection (75 IU) o Day 4: 225 IU Gonal-F in AM; 2 vials of menopur (75 IU each) in PM o Day 5-Day 9: 225 IU Gonal-F in AM; 2 vials of menopur (75 IU each) in PM; .25 mg Cetrotide in PM o Day 10: 225 IU Gonal-F in AM; 1 vials of menopur (75 IU each) in PM; .25 mg Cetrotide in PM; changed to Lupron trigger from Novarel to prevent OHSS o Day 11: 225 IU Gonal-F in AM; Lupron trigger in evening o Day 12: Nothing o Day 13: Egg retrieval Retrieval, Fertilization, and Embryo Results • Retrieved 17 eggs; • 2 that were mature were immediately identified as abnormal; • 2 were immature; • 13 looked viable and they attempted fertilization; • Of the 13 that they attempted to fertilize, 9 fertilized normally when they checked a day later resulting in 9 embryos incubating. • The embryologist doesn't really do three-day checks or let his patients know figures until the end of the process. They just wait it out with the philosophy that the best place for those little dudes is safe and sound in that incubator. At this point, the embryologist let me know that "normally" about half will make it to the blastocyst stage to be biopsied for pre-implantation genetic screening. Could be less, could be more. • A week later…. • Of the 9, 3 almost made it to blastocyst, but the third stopped growing on Day 6. • We have 2 embryos officially frozen. One is good quality. The other is questionable because it grew very late, was frozen on day 7, and is subpar quality. • Although they didn't sound too hopeful about the second, they were able to biopsy both for genetic testing (PGS). • They are keeping the PGS culture “on ice” for a while before we they have to send it off for testing with the hopes that we will bank another round and have more embryos to send. • The embryologist believes this process verified that egg quality is very likely the issue and explains the many early miscarriages. Of course that isn’t definitive, but I can role with hypotheticals. • I am giving my body a break from March though May and will start another round in June, which will be a different protocol with the hopes to get better results with a slower growing process. • The next round will be a 4.5-week stimulation (AACEP Protocol) process as compared to a 2-week stimulation process.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Dallas. (Assigned nurse: Krissie (with IUIs), Andrea Farris and Jan Mazraani (with IVFs))
The nursing team is phenomenal. Krissy actually performed one of my successful IUIs and was so gentle, compassionate, kind, and informative. When she had to communicate the disappointing results of the beta levels and ultimate miscarriage, she did so in a very tender manner. I appreciated Andrea’s and Jan’s organization and help in explaining the IVF process. They returned calls quickly and responded professionally. Dr. Zhang, the Embryologist, was no different. She answered myriad questions, including at the starting point when we had many questions about the consents. She was so thorough in explaining and patient with our questions. When she delivered the news about the embryos, she was so kind yet matter of fact.
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Dallas.
I think the clinic is great. They were able to process anything that could be coded as a diagnostic through my insurance. The front staff, including Shelly, is helpful and efficient. Tina, the Administrator, put together an IVF estimate very quickly when we were thinking we needed to do it before the end of the year. The lab technician is wonderful as well. All labs and appointments are done on site. However, should an unusual circumstance arise, the clinic is connected to Baylor Hospital-Dallas so has extensive resources. For example, when I had to change my trigger shot to a Lupron shot, they had me go to different lab within Baylor to make sure that the results were expedited in order to confirm my egg retrieval.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas.
Dr. Putman processed all that hey could via insurance; however, I do not have fertility treatment coverage. Therefore, we have spent around $25,000 thus far (IUS and one round of IVF with PGS).
Describe Michael Putman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Dallas.
We have discussed this vaguely with Dr. Putman and determined that we would have to wait and see what the final embryo results are from both rounds before making decisions about transfers.

Very nice and informative. But I feel like his [Dr. Putman] consults and conversations are rehearsed and told many times over. Don't see him other than consults and the actual procedures. Definitely don't feel like I'm the focus... He's also told us that we are unexplained infertility. Last consult he told us I should go in for surgery and if he finds something while he's in there then he can fix it. I'm NOT having a surgery and paying all of that money on his whim that he might find something.
Some staff [at Fert Center of Dallas] aren't very compassionate or interactive...[nursing staff] Very quiet. Not much information shared. Not very compassionate or comforting. Only one nurse I found nice...I had lots of blood work done and a procedure at the hospital to look at my ovaries and tubes. No one informed me of any results... Every follicle sono was almost $75. Consults were over $100. IUI was $500 and sperm wash was $95.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
Ask questions. Tell him how you feel.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
Some staff aren't very compassionate or interactive. Last visit to his office he had me do a booster shot to force ovulation when he knows I ovulate perfectly fine on my own. I didn't speak up when I should have. It's very expensive and I regret it now. I feel like he had me do the booster just because I was probably going to ovulate on my own over the weekend and he didn't want to have to come up there. I could be wrong but who knows. Prior to the booster shot I was told to go home (45 minutes away) and take an ovulation test and come back if it was negative for the shot. The receptionist actually told my nurse to let me use ovulation tests they had there in the office instead of making me go home. Awkward and uncomfortable to be around that conversation. He's also told us that we are unexplained infertility. Last consult he told us I should go in for surgery and if he finds something while he's in there then he can fix it. I'm NOT having a surgery and paying all of that money on his whim that he might find something. I feel like that's absolutely ridiculous.

Only thing my husband and I have done is consultations, multiple sono's to follow follicle growth, IUI's and one booster shot.

Dr. Tarnawa was thorough and patient. He explained things well and never seemed to be rushing us out the door. He seems to be a genuine person who cares about his patients. His greatest weakness is that he left my clinic and moved to another state!... Dr. Tarnawa took a lot of time to talk to us from the beginning, and I felt like he always remembered our particular situation at each visit.... We did a freeze-all IVF cycle using Bravelle, Menopur, and Ganirelix injections.
The nursing staff [Fertility Center of Dallas] was friendly and efficient. We typically saw the same person each time and she was always helpful in providing information or answering questions. The staff was small so sometimes things were a little rushed.... The front desk staff and lab tech are all very friendly. The embryologist Dr. Zhang seems excellent and is helpful in answering any questions about your embryos.... the total of everything from the egg retrieval, PGS, transfer, and medications came in around $25,000.

Dr. Tarnawa was thorough and patient. He explained things well and never seemed to be rushing us out the door. He seems to be a genuine person who cares about his patients. His greatest weakness is that he left my clinic and moved to another state!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Edward Tarnawa at Fertility Center of Dallas?
I'd encourage any patient of any doctor to learn as much about their own situation as possible and ask any questions you have. Once you feel comfortable that you have all the information you need, trust Dr. Tarnawa to do the best he can to help you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Edward Tarnawa at Fertility Center of Dallas?
Dr. Tarnawa took a lot of time to talk to us from the beginning, and I felt like he always remembered our particular situation at each visit.
Describe the protocols Edward Tarnawa used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Dallas and their degree of success.
We did a freeze-all IVF cycle using Bravelle, Menopur, and Ganirelix injections. After egg retrieval, we did ICSI followed later by PGS testing of the embryos. This was all done because we were "unexplained" and didn't know where our problem was so we decided to do as much as we could to ensure this was the only retrieval cycle we'd have to do. When we did the frozen transfer I was on birth control, lupron injections, estrogen patches and PIO injections followed by suppositories. Our first and only cycle with Dr. Tarnawa was successful and resulted in the birth of our daughter.

Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Dallas.
Dr. Tarnawa is no longer with this clinic so that is a weakness, but overall the clinic was good. It's relatively small so you see familiar faces each time, but that can also cause the staff to get backed up and rushed. The front desk staff and lab tech are all very friendly. The embryologist Dr. Zhang seems excellent and is helpful in answering any questions about your embryos.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Edward Tarnawa at Fertility Center of Dallas.
I don't recall specifics, but I believe that the total of everything from the egg retrieval, PGS, transfer, and medications came in around $25,000. We were completely out of pocket.

Good clinic with good personal attention. Would not recommend if you want a very talkative doctor.

Not much communication with Dr. Putman but was very quick and easy to correspond with nurses at any time.

We just did a standard protocol as there were no concerns other than MFI.

There was a very large range of possible price for ICSI ($500-$2500) and I never got a specific answer about how the price for ICSI would be determined. I don't mean to imply that there was any wrong doing on the part of the financial team but the lack of transparency just became very frustrating
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas.
It ended up being around $9,000 with insurance covering some monitoring and bloodwork.

Right after my 2nd transfer during the holidays he was available on his emergency line to answer a question about my medication...Dr Putman didn't seem irritated that I interrupted his personal time and he was very familiar with our situation... ordered alot of diagnostic testing to include HSG xray. He also did alot tests through blood work for both me and my husband. Dr Putnam did my egg retrieval and 2 transfers...
What wasn't very clear from the start [at Fertility Center of Dallas] was how much medication would cost...The clinic as a whole is very attentive to you as a person. Only advice I would give to a new patient is to just take it one step at a time. During my egg retrieval and transfers we got a calendar and I took it as written in stone (planned leave for work, family events, etc) just be flexible...We were always greeted by name. Dr and nurses all were knowledgeable about our situation and goals.

Once diagnosed with Abnormal Natural Killer Cells [by Dr. Michael Putman] we started Intralipid Infusions...He took the time to talk through his plans thoroughly! Answered every questioned asked, no matter how much the answer would hurt. He knew what we wanted and worked so hard to give us our baby...was extremely honest with every procedure.

Dr. Putman is very good at making you feel that your situation is the only one he is helping. We are seeing him for our second cycle for frozen transfer. Looking forward to Dr. Putman help.
We meet with the nurse [at Fertility Centers of Dallas- Dallas] to give us our calendar. The calendar explain to us each step up to the transfer. My first cycle was done in 2015 so I don’t remember all specifics. I do know I had to call the nurse when I started my cycle so that she could fill in the dates. I ordered the medication before the start on my cycle to have all medications ready. From the start of my cycle to the transfer took about two months.

He [Dr. Michael Putman] is very conservative- you start with IUIs then once completed you go to Ivf. It’s about the process timeline, for transfer was only once you had enough embryos . But all cases are different . He Is older and very educated, person who listens to you and allows your questions to be answered.... Timed and calendar natural intercourse a year, 3 months of iui, maybe more- then more months of trying to plan cycles for ivf with meds. Then freezing embryos and doing a cycle after mult collection phases.
Front desk [at Fertility Center of Dallas] has a high turn over, the people are not always able to answer your questions, but the nurses have answering machines and they will call you back. I also found out that some clinics have financial help - this clinic did not- it was out of pocket always.... Embryo mgt yearly- 1000 /yr Meds- 3k per cycle 10k ivf- per cycle... They hired a new person one year and there was a huge gap in her understanding in learning her job, but all the clinics have issues with the staff I went too.

The staff at the surgery center remarked that Putman has folks come from all over the world to sit on his operating table. Trust the process. This surgery changed my life. I have no pain during my cycles and I am now pregnant with my miracle baby.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
Dr. Putman is the best doctor I’ve ever had. He’s extremely thorough. Throughout the entire process with him (he works very fast), I always felt confident that I was receiving the best care from the best doctor.

Dr. Putman didn’t waist any time getting diagnostics started. Testing was started on day 1 of initial consultation...is “on it”. The first day he met with us he had a plan. Testing began and treatment plan initiated. That really put my husband and I at ease as no other Dr had ever done any testing for us. He really explained his suggested plan and also gave other options in case we wanted to try another route of treatment...there is a lot of information coming at you on day 1 and can be a little overwhelming.
Clinic [Fertility Center of Dallas] is friendly. They are quick to return missed calls and messages. They have early morning appointments which is great for people that work. You get in at your scheduled appointment time. They don’t make you wait like some clinics do... Dr. Putman didn’t waist any time getting diagnostics started.
