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.

The office was quiet, welcoming, and accommodating. Appointments were easily scheduled, and usually not a long wait (if any). I felt that they were thorough. After each visit (weight, blood, ultrasound) there was a complete consultation to go over results and plan. Dr. Birnbaum was always polite. He would send articles for reading so Google wouldn't be so worrisome and used "cautiously optimistic" when we got our increasing numbers. He also is not a pill or procedure pusher and when I called due to bleeding, he calmed me down.
