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.

Organized, warm, likable and efficient. June was also very efficient and kind. ... she [Dr. Ben-Ozer] told me she would not transfer more than 2 at a time. We never got to that point though. If we had, I would transfer one at a time, not more than that.

How was your experience with Snunit Ben-Ozer at Tree of Life Center?
I really liked her a lot. We were referred to her by a couple who had a successful IVF with her and knew a few other couples who were successful with her. She was super patient. I wish, though, that she had encouraged us to save our embryos, just in case they could be used later. We are finding out now that one of them could have been implanted and possible autocorrected. But, there has been a lot of research since then, I just wish she would have had a bit more foresight as an expert in her field. Which may or may not be fair. Also, I wish that she had been less aggressive with the hormones, as I am learning now that when you are in your 40's, too many meds can fry your eggs as they are more delicate than when you are younger.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Snunit Ben-Ozer at Tree of Life Center?
Do your research. Don't throw your embryos out right away if they are labeled "abnormal." See what other advancements will be made over the next couple years. She is a good doctor. Go with your gut.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Snunit Ben-Ozer at Tree of Life Center?
She was very kind and so was everyone who worked in her office. She was likable and seemed to like me too. She had a sense of humor and was respectful and considerate. She thought before she spoke and never seemed in a rush or anything.
Describe the protocols Snunit Ben-Ozer used in your cycles at Tree of Life Center and their degree of success.
She was pretty aggressive with the meds, the goal being to get as many eggs as possible. For me, it would have made a lot more sense to do a mini IVF or a mild IVF which uses less meds. Also, I am not sure that IUI after IUI was the way to go either. It never worked, yet somehow we did like 7 of them, which is very expensive. In retrospect, I probably would not have done so many of them.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Ercy was wonderful. Organized, warm, likable and efficient. June was also very efficient and kind.
Describe your experience with Tree of Life Center.
It is hard for me to totally recommend this clinic, as I did not get pregnant, but I will say that the energy there was very welcoming and Dr. Ben-Ozer was skilled and compassionate. I just do't know how updated she was on what was happening in the field as far as new protocols, etc.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Snunit Ben-Ozer at Tree of Life Center.
It was expensive. Stimulated IUI: $5,000 Regular IUI: $2500 Use of surgery center for extraction: $10,000 Rest of IVF expenses: $10,000- $15,000
Describe Snunit Ben-Ozer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Tree of Life Center.
She told me she would not transfer more than 2 at a time. We never got to that point though. If we had, I would transfer one at a time, not more than that.

Dr. Ben-Ozer is what I needed. A small, personal clinic that put up with my questions and was flexible with appointments to suit my busy schedule. She is not as warm and fuzzy as mr. rogers. But you KNOW she cares. I have three incredible kids thanks to Dr. Ben-Ozer. After my first IVF left us with only one half assed blast on day 5 she figured out a new protocol for me that allowed me to have the family I now have. I owe her so much.
It [Tree of Life Center] is a very small clinic so every one working there knows you by name. Dr. Ben-Ozer didn't just go by the book. She found out what worked for ME personally and not the masses. Also after transfer Dr. Ben-Ozer would hold our hands and say a prayer in Hebrew. Even for an agnostic/atheist like me it was very touching.

This isn't the flashiest, biggest clinic. But that means they can really pay attention to YOU the person.

Describe the protocols Snunit Ben-Ozer used in your cycles at Tree of Life Center and their degree of success.
After trying for a year we went to Ben-Ozer at the suggestion of my friend. We did blood testing and I was relieved to see on the "dildo cam" that I had ovaries and follicles. Turns out our issue was male factor. When she got the results Dr. Ben-Ozer sat us down and explained she thought we should go straight to IVF. I was very overwhelmed and seeing that Dr. Ben-Ozer agreed to let us try IUIs first. But pretty quickly we knew we'd be moving on to IVF. Our first retrieval was disappointing. Though I had lots of follicles half were empty. B-O (Ben ozer from now on) also noticed that the liquid around the eggs was cloudy and looked like it belonged to an older woman. Needless to say that IVF resulted in a negative. I was heartbroken and worried that I would never be able to produce decent eggs. Was the issue MFI AND me? B-O never wavered. She told me she would get me pregnant. The next IVF cycle we used a different protocol. The biggest change was no more lupron. With this new protocol, my next retrieval was so much better. I transferred two embryos and we froze four. One of those two became by daughter. A year later we did an FET. Two of the frozens didn't survive. The other two were transferred. But alas a negative. Using the same protocol as our successful IVF we did another fresh cycle. This was our best one yet. And the two embryos we transferred both took and gave us our twin boys. Dr. Ben-Ozer clearly found the right protocol for my body.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tree of Life Center.
Again, this is a small clinic. Besides Dr. B-O there were only two other people in the office. You really got to know them and they got to know you.
Describe your experience with Tree of Life Center.
It's small. 3 exam rooms. One doctor. A nurse and the paperwork lady. There is also a little man behind the desk who deals with the money. I liked it for this very reason. I wanted small and personal.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Snunit Ben-Ozer at Tree of Life Center.
I was out of pocket, but Dr. Ben-Ozer did whatever she could to cut the costs. She offered packages. She often gave me donated meds. And whenever she could she would charge off my monitoring as something else (i.e. watching a cyst which was covered by insurance)

She is passionate and caring and it’s a great combo. She is thoughtful and thorough in ordering bloodwork and tests to help determine your next steps...Dr. Ben-Ozer is kind and compassionate yet gets down to business. She goes through records with a fine tooth comb to see if she can help get to the bottom of why you’re not getting pregnant. She has matter of fact treatment plans that make sense.
