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.

She [Dr. Safier] explained our course of treatment well. As a nurse I know and understand the medical aspect. She took the time to thoroughly make sure my husband understood what was going on too.... she has answered every concern and weighed every option with us. She made it clear that she wants us to get pregnant just as much as we want it. Not just another doctor pushing pills and treatments “hoping” for the best.
The nurses [Island Fertility] are amazing. The medical assistants are ok.... Insurance coverage was explained and then copays were not thoroughly explained I suppose. I was told one fee for testing and another for seeing the dr. So days I didn’t see the dr and only had labs drawn I was paying both fees. In perspective it’s a lot less than someone without great coverage. Just unclear.

How was your experience with Lauren Safier at Island Fertility?
She explained our course of treatment well. As a nurse I know and understand the medical aspect. She took the time to thoroughly make sure my husband understood what was going on too. With a hiccup regarding testing that requires surgery now, even though I was ready to do IUI this month, she has answered every concern and weighed every option with us. She made it clear that she wants us to get pregnant just as much as we want it. Not just another doctor pushing pills and treatments “hoping” for the best.

She listens so don’t be afraid to talk things aloud with her and ask all the questions no matter how small or stupid you think they are.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lauren Safier at Island Fertility?

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses are amazing. The medical assistants are ok. There’s one that I can’t stand. She doesn’t listen and always ends up sticking me over and over for labs until she finally gets someone else after hurting me. I know I’m tough and I’ve been drawing blood for over 10 years. I’m not a wimp or anything like that. It’s like she forgets there’s a human on the other side of the needle and not just a specimen.
Describe your experience with Island Fertility.
Insurance coverage was explained and then copays were not thoroughly explained I suppose. I was told one fee for testing and another for seeing the dr. So days I didn’t see the dr and only had labs drawn I was paying both fees. In perspective it’s a lot less than someone without great coverage. Just unclear. Office otherwise is very nice, optimistic, and supportive.
