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 Kalan made me and my husband feel confident and comfortable. He was very reassuring and we trusted him completely. We never felt rushed when we went to see him and he took the time to explain everything to us in terms we would understand...I had an ultrasound every 2-3 days and was closely monitored...He recommends single [embryo transfer], but ultimately it is the couples decision. He takes the time to explain risks and makes sure you understand before moving forward
15345 for egg retrieval, icsi, pgs testing [at Los Angeles Reproductive Center]...Whole clinic is great and everyone is so helpful. From the front desk to the billing department to the nurses taking blood, they are amazing. We always felt comfortable and we never had to wait long for our appointment. Only downside is the valet parking and no validation!...I must’ve sent a thousand emails and called with so many questions during my cycle and each concern was always addressed right away.

Dr Winkler is the most compassionate physician I met. She will always call/ email communicate in a timely manner. She is very knowledgeable and explains every steps in details and make sure to guide us to the best possible treatment plan ... First cycle - regular FSH cycle (with added menopour and antagonist) 30 eggs retrieved- 1 embryo - chemical pregnancy Second cycle - flare protocol 24 eggs retrieved- 4 embryos- chemical pregnancy
Both clinical and admin staff [LARC] are lack of professionalism and basic knowledge (and it is seems that they don’t really care). Manager will never say hello or greet us. Financial once threatened to cancel our cycle (as my husband was out of the country and we said we will send the payment the next day). ...They are not tech savvy, although they both young physicians, so don’t be surprised if your blood work report are not uploaded to your chart or that the staff didn’t update your treatment protocol. ...

Lack of clinical understanding and not compassionate
Describe your experience with Los Angeles Reproductive Center.
The doctor is amazing! The staff is not so much. Financial team have zero compassion and nurses are lack clinical knowledge (and patient care). They are not tech savvy, although they both young physicians, so don’t be surprised if your blood work report are not uploaded to your chart or that the staff didn’t update your treatment protocol. Luckily the doctor is on top of everything regarding her patients. I would still recommend strongly to go.

He has been incredibly kind, considerate, available and attentive. He truly cares about you and your journey and wants the best for you. He is always accessible, including by text and will often check on you.... Dr Kalan tried IUI with chlomid as well as a trigger shot. He then tried IUI with some injectables to help me save money. When not successful, he encouraged IVF, which was his favored option from the start. I simply struggled with the cost. He also conducted various tests prior to treatment to ensure there were no complications.
They [Los Angeles Reproductive Ctr] are accommodating, available, comforting and communicative. Any time I needed to get in, or had a problem, they made time for me. They are also so warm and friendly and were always willing to chat with me.... I love all of them! They were helpful, friendly, available any time I had questions or needed help. They were extremely supportive and truly cared about my progress.

He [Dr. Kalan] was thorough and patient with us and explained things well. My only concern was he was vague about the particular situation I had in terms of his experience treating this condition and typical success rates and outcomes. He also forgot one important detail about my story during one conversation (recurrent miscarriage), and I feel like he could have been more thorough about what testing I need and could have explained that better.
Kind and available doctor and staff, professional environment and space, well coordinated and organized, weaknesses would be some vagueness around experience of doctor and success rates, also the possible outcomes of IVF ... They took a long time to send records to Different clinic, also unclear why fetus from a miscarriage couldn’t be tested, something we were really relying on for diagnostics and to understand our recurrent loss

I feel as if the clinic had too many other important patients and I happen to step in at the wrong time.

Dr. Winkler was warm and caring. She listened to our unusual circumstance and financial situation. She listened to questions about Natural IVF to Mini IVF to regular IVF and talked them through with us in our situation. ... In our first consultation she also recommended my partner take the genetics testing since I had already and was a carrier for 1 vulnerability.
The Clinic [Los Angeles Repro Ctr] was in a high rise building and the view was beautiful. The office is VERY clean and comfortable. ... I absolutely loved they had more "natural" options although we decided what was best was regular IVF. I like having the option of not getting on BC and having the DR follow MY cycle instead of my cycle being manipulated to try to fit into the Doctors schedule, like other clinics.

How was your experience with Nurit Winkler at Los Angeles Reproductive Center?
Dr. Winkler was warm, caring, informative, very patient with us and understanding of our desires and obstacles. She spoke with us in detail about the pro's and Con's of natural IVF, Mini IVF and regular IVF with our unique situation. In our first consultation she also recommended my partner take the genetics testing since I had already and was a carrier for 1 vulnerability. We agreed and she arranged and set it up as soon as we walked out of her office. We didn't feel like we were inconveniencing anyone and that everyone was there for just us lol. We cannot wait to continue working with Dr. Winkler.
