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.

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. Davenport] will ask how you are doing before jumping right into the exam or procedure for the day. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients and getting the results his patients want.... The first time with Dr. Davenport, we did Clomid with timed intercourse for 6 months and then moved up to Clomid, an Ovidrel shot, and an IUI. After 2 months, I was pregnant. Now we are trying for our 2nd child and unfortunately it's not going as well.
The clinic [Fertility Institute of North Alabama] is a bit small but I know he's looking for a new building. But even though it is small, the clinic is capable of most fertility options. If the equipment isn't there, the doctor has a setup in a near-by city to attend to his patients accordingly.... They are all very personable and caring. They will laugh with you if that's what you need to do or cry with you. When asked questions about the procedures and medicines, if they don't know the answer, they will find out the answer for you.

How was your experience with Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
Dr. Davenport is very knowledgeable and while he can appear to be socially shy, he has worked on that in the past few years. He will ask how you are doing before jumping right into the exam or procedure for the day. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients and getting the results his patients want.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
Meet him. Have a consultation. He will show you how knowledgeable and caring he is.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
The office and nurses know my name and ask me how I'm doing every month. They remember certain details that we previously talked about. The office environment is very personable.
Describe the protocols Brett Davenport used in your cycles at Fertility Institute of North Alabama and their degree of success.
The first time with Dr. Davenport, we did Clomid with timed intercourse for 6 months and then moved up to Clomid, an Ovidrel shot, and an IUI. After 2 months, I was pregnant. Now we are trying for our 2nd child and unfortunately it's not going as well. We have had IUIs monthly with clomid and the Ovidrel shot but no luck. I truly think it's my diet and stress levels. I need to talk with him about it.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Institute of North Alabama. (Assigned nurse: Kendra)
They are all very personable and caring. They will laugh with you if that's what you need to do or cry with you. When asked questions about the procedures and medicines, if they don't know the answer, they will find out the answer for you. Many times I have received phone calls after their office has closed for the day just so they can answer my questions.

The clinic is a bit small but I know he's looking for a new building. But even though it is small, the clinic is capable of most fertility options. If the equipment isn't there, the doctor has a setup in a near-by city to attend to his patients accordingly.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
Because of my insurance, each visit co-pay is $40. Clomid runs from $40-$80 depending on if the pharmacy has coupons. The Ovidrel shot can run from $120-$200, again depending on coupons at the pharmacy. Each IUI costs $350, I believe.

We had a great experience the first time around (and amazing results), and when he [Dr. Brett Davenport] moved to his own clinic, he went to bat for us to help is get custody of our embryos. He absolutely has gone above and beyond what I would have expected of him. As we're trying again, he has made sure everything will go smoothly so that we don't have any of the struggles we had to get to our last transfer.
I absolutely love his new staff [at Fertility Institute of N AL]. They're so much easier to communicate with and I really like that I know everyone in the office.... My husband has low motility, low morphology, and low count, so we went straight to ivf. He was on clomid and novarel for 6 months the first time. I had a cycle with follistim because that is what my insurance would cover. We had great success with a twin pregnancy. When we went back for an FET, I did injectibles and estrogen and progesterone. Neither of our two remaining embryos stuck. This time around, my husband isn't doing the clomid and novarel, we're just going to go ahead and do icsi. I'm going to be on the same meds as last time because it obviously worked.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
He can move fast, so sometimes, you have to ask him to slow down. I'm good with it because I did so much research on my own before we got to this point and we've done it all before.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
He is so proactive and knows my history without me having to remind him. He is personable and wants to be sure that we're ok with every step along the way.

I absolutely love his new staff. They're so much easier to communicate with and I really like that I know everyone in the office.
Describe your experience with Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
He is contracting with ovation fertility in Nashville until his office is complete, but I think I prefer this office. They are right next to the hospital. Going to a small clinic for monitoring and then going to the larger one for retrievals and transfers is very appealing to me.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
My insurance covers meds, testing, and monitoring. Our cycle plan (3 retrievals and 3 transfers) will be about 17k.
Describe Brett Davenport's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
He was willing to go ahead and transfer two embryos because we wanted to. He said if we chose to do pgs this time around, he would not transfer two.

Dr. Davenport cares deeply about his patients. I always felt like I was his only patient. I underwent two surgeries during my treatment and each time he prayed before surgery and personally called the day after each one to check on me. He felt our disappointment each time we weren’t pregnant and was overjoyed when we finally got pregnant... It was bittersweet being released from his care when I was 9 week pregnant. I felt he truly cared about me and always took the time to explain each step of the process in a way that my husband and I could understand. He even personally called when lab results were late and after surgery. Dr. Davenport made our infertility journey more bareable.
Dr. Davenport opened his clinic about a year ago. They are working on getting the kinks out of a new practice but overall, the practice and its employees are phenomenal. It was easy to get early appointments (7 AM) and they even came in on a Saturday morning for an IUI...The nursing staff was invested in my journey. I felt liked they truly cared and were always available to answer questions.
