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.

Give him [Dr. George Attia] time to warm up to you. He’s friendlier than he looks...Meds were adjusted once on cd 7 to 2 times a day as I was a slow responder. 2 days later ultrasound and blood work showed improvement cetrotide was added on Stim day 7...At first I felt our appointment was very quick, but after a few visits I thought he was very pleasant and helpful. He asked and made sure I understood everything and made sure it was clear. He spends time and when I was concerned he made sure to relax me and answer all concerns.
Savannah [nurse at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center] is so sweet and patient. She spent so much time to help me with the injections and paperwork. She calls me timely and answers all my questions and worries. If I email or call they call me back within a few hrs and I never feel like a bother...Blood can be drawn in office and they can do everything in one office which is great! The wait time isn’t usually long once you start ivf but before it maybe a long wait in but that’s because they spend time with the patient. I wish they did SA everyday instead of only fridays.

Not every details or step was discussed with me, unless I did ask specifically. He [Dr. Attia] did ask a lot if I have more questions for him, so his patients better be prepared and do research to be able to ask questions.... Stimulation with Gonal F and Menopur injections. Got two embryos after first retrieval. Did embyo transfer did not grow them to blastocyte. Doctor said his believe is that the human body is the better environment than the lab dish for the embryos to survive.
Clinic [UHealth Repro and Fertility Ctr] was very accomodationg to my work schedule so i could choose the time within their 'monitoring window' that would work best for me.... strengths: Wait time okay. The staff are nice but not overly friendly. weaknesses: In my opinion maybe not using the latest recommendation in field. Not sure how I feel about their laboratory.... paid $10,500 for the first cycle (package, all inclusive, of course excluding meds and we didn't do PGS testing).

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Attia at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center?
Do reseach on all procedures and ask your questions as he is kind enough to answer them all but information may not necessarily come without the patient asking the questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with George Attia at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center?
Not very good raport / communication with the office staff (nurses). The Ultraound technician was great though.
Describe the protocols George Attia used in your cycles at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Stimulation with Gonal F and Menopur injections. Got two embryos after first retrieval. Did embyo transfer did not grow them to blastocyte. Doctor said his believe is that the human body is the better environment than the lab dish for the embryos to survive. Did not do PGS testing, as we only had two embryos. On second IVF cycle he used the same medication regimen just altered the dosages a little and added growth hormone. We retrieve five eggs and ended up with no viable embryo. He next suggested donor eggs.
Describe your experience with your nurse at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Gabi with the first cycle. Savannah during second cycle)
All right, but not great.
Describe your experience with UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center.
strengths: Wait time okay. The staff are nice but not overly friendly. weaknesses: In my opinion maybe not using the latest recommendation in field. Not sure how I feel about their laboratory.

Dr. Attia was very direct and to the point. Which can be good but I did not feel a personal connection to him. I felt like all appointments with him were rushed on the occasions that I saw him...Then he would be accompanied by other doctors. Whether interns or visiting doctors. For my first sonogram to determine if I was having one or two babies there were about four to five doctors in the ultra sound room. On that first visit we were unable to hear the heartbeats due to the babies still being too small. Even though Dr. Attia reassured me it was still too soon with the room being full of people I didn't know it was very uncomfortable and emotional for me.
Everyone at the clinic [U of Miami] was very welcoming. It was very hard to get the first initial appointment I believe I had to wait almost 2 months but once I was in it was easy to change appointments or get the earliest ones during stims for my ultra sounds. They were very flexible with me...My nurse was great she was compassionate and caring and always made me feel comfortable. Even when I would overwhelm her with questions. My only complaint was at times is was hard to get a hold of her I found email to be the best way to reach her.

How was your experience with George Attia at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center?
Dr. Attia was very direct and to the point. Which can be good but I did not feel a personal connection to him. I felt like all appointments with him were rushed on the occasions that I saw him. As you know during fertility treatments you can pretty much visit the clinic three to five times in a week. I would say that I only saw him about two times in any given week until I reached the end of my journey. Then he would be accompanied by other doctors. Whether interns or visiting doctors. For my first sonogram to determine if I was having one or two babies there were about four to five doctors in the ultra sound room. On that first visit we were unable to hear the heartbeats due to the babies still being too small. Even though Dr. Attia reassured me it was still too soon with the room being full of people I didn't know it was very uncomfortable and emotional for me.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Attia at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center?
Do not be turned off by his bedside manner he is brilliant at what he does.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with George Attia at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center?
While we had wonderful results I felt like I had more of a connection with my nurse rather than Dr. Attia. He was very dry and to the point.
Describe the protocols George Attia used in your cycles at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center and their degree of success.
My fertility treatments began January 1, 2016 with birth control pills. I took the pills for about 3 weeks. Then I began Lupron ( don't remember the exact dosage) I began stims on feb 12 decreasing the dosage of lupron and adding gonal f and menapur to the injections. Trigger of Noval was feb 22 at 11:20 pm and egg retrieval was feb 24 at 8am. 24 eggs were retrieved 15 matured 11 tested using PDg testing. Only 2 embryos were viable and they were transferred on feb 24. Resulting in a twin pregnancy. My babies are just about 6 months old now and perfectly healthy.

The dr. [Attia] is nice but feels very very rushed... I didn't completely feel that everything was explained to me thoroughly...When I first met with the dr. he seemed very positive and upbeat. He always greeted me with a smile...Antagonist protocol. 8 days of stims on high doses of menopur and gonal-f. They ordered the correct amount of meds and made sure that I didn't have to over pay for extra meds I wouldn't need.
The nursing staff [at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center] seemed rushed. It also felt unorganized. Sometimes the nurses seem annoyed with questions...they always run late, seem very unorganized, and not a good communicator...I did the FDA testing at their office and a few days before retrieval was told that the lab never received the labs so I had to rush to an outside lab to have labs drawn or else my retrieval would have been cancelled.

How was your experience with George Attia at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center?
The dr. is nice but feels very very rushed. His nurse is also nice but very very rushed. I didn't completely feel that everything was explained to me thoroughly. Returning phone calls is a weakness of this clinic. Also, the front office gave me different answers than the nursing staff which made it very confusing. When I first met with the dr. he seemed very positive and upbeat. He always greeted me with a smile. The office wait is always really long and they are hardly ever on time.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Attia at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center?
Be prepared to wait and be persistent with communications with this office. Ask questions until you get an answer.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with George Attia at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center?
When I went to their office the dr and nurses would always greet me by my name.

Describe your experience with UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center.
The clinic has 2 locations so you are able to decided which to go to. The dr was nice and informative to me. The weaknesses is they always run late, seem very unorganized, and not a good communicator.

This office does monitoring appointments before noon so you just have to show up and wait your turn. You could be there for 30 minutes to 2 hours just waiting.

he [Dr. George Attia] is very nice and kind, but since he has to see so many people for the same reason maybe sometimes i didn't feel like he was warm enough for me...it was a regular protocol of stimulation and egg retrieval because apparently everything was fine with me, just unexplained infertility, but we end up knowing my hormones levels were very low. i remember using meropur, cetrotide, trigger shot, and the progesterone.
i don t have anything bad to say [about University of Miami], just because it wasn't a positive result for me , i am not going to blame them, i would recommend this clinic absolutely because they have good prices, and good care, may not be the best, but they do their jobs...i felt some times like a number and some times like a human, i was expecting a little bit more of attention or care, some of the staff were really nice, some not. this is a difficult time we go through and we need more special attention.

How was your experience with George Attia at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center?
he is very nice and kind, but since he has to see so many people for the same reason maybe sometimes i didn't feel like he was warm enough for me. i went to him because some of my friends went with him and got positive results, but it wasn't my case. some nurses are not nice at all, some are more compassionate. i would like to try again with him because he already knows me and knows what happened previously and he can work based on that.

He [Dr. George Attia] seemed to be rushing. He also seemed ready to move right into IVF ...I did not receive many details, just that he want to proceed with a medicated IUI or IVF transferring two...He tends to look more at the monitor than the patient. He did answer all of my questions, but being a newbie I didn't have that many.
It is a hospital based clinic [UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center] so my insurance charged me for my HSG, it could have been free and of course they didn't tell me that. I got an ice surprise bill later. It is a small office with lots of patients. When you call you usually get to speak to someone just probably not the nurse or doctor or not las you request...She [nurse] seemed overwhelmed...I did not receive many details, just that he want to proceed with a medicated IUI or IVF transferring two. It was overwhelming.

How was your experience with George Attia at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center?
He seemed to be rushing. He also seemed ready to move right into IVF and wanted to put two, which per recommendations is 1 too many. He tends to look more at the monitor than the patient. He did answer all of my questions, but being a newbie I didn't have that many. My new doctor did a much better job explains my test results and found an error in one of the test. Other people that I know have used him successfully but he just wasn't the right fit for me.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Attia at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center?
I recommend a new patient come read with their questions, state they don't want students in their consultation, and have their mind set on the number of embryos the want transferred.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with George Attia at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center?
Dr. Attia tended to look more at the computer than at us. He also always had students and not just 1. Being so new at the time made the process overwhelming

[Dr. Mick Abae was] Always on time for appointments...rarely does frozen embryo transfers...Nit a good communicator, didn’t know how many embryos would be transferred until I arrived on day of transfer, tv screen wasn’t working when embryologist got embryos to transfer and the process seemed unprofessional...Dr. Abae is a little distant and cold...Ask lots of questions and force him to explain anything you’re unaware of.
Costs are cheaper [at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center] than other clinics but that’s because they don’t seem to do lots of frozen embryo transfers. They don’t communicate well during Ivf however the appointments were always on time.ask the embryologist lots of questions and if you do Ivf ensure that he lets you know in advance the number of embryos to be transferred prior to the transfer date.

Excellent primary nurse
Describe your experience with UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center.
Costs are cheaper than other clinics but that’s because they don’t seem to do lots of frozen embryo transfers. They don’t communicate well during Ivf however the appointments were always on time.ask the embryologist lots of questions and if you do Ivf ensure that he lets you know in advance the number of embryos to be transferred prior to the transfer date.

He [Dr. Arthur Shapiro] is perhaps managing way too many patients...seems interested in helping women and couples have a baby, but seems overworked. There is no way he can know anyone on a personal level due to his schedule...he is often delayed or late due to meetings...Much of the time spend in his office was his reviewing of my charts, results, ordering new labs, and his asking questions about my cycle. At times he had other nurses or phone calls interrupt our visit. While he seemed like a nice guy, I did ultimately feel like we did too many repeated labs before really getting to the bottom of our fertility issues.
I do feel like I lost time based on how the UM fertility clinic is operated...They [nurses] only leave instructions via voicemail. I got a very important msg late and gave myself the wrong dose of a medication due to this...I did not get my trigger shot sent to the fertility pharmacy I had on file by the nurse in time during my IUI with another treating doctor at the clinic. Luckily, I was able to call the after hours line and get the medication, at full cost at a 24 hour Walgreens. I really had to go out of my way to get it.

Describe your experience with UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center.
It feels like you are in a factory setting. You are just a number and will be waiting a long time to see a doctor. I thought a teaching hospital would be more research based and on the forefront of the latest technology; however, I found other private clinics to be way more advanced and modern.

The doctor [George Attia] is very knowledgeable about everything he does, is very kind, understanding and dedicated, he is a very good doctor, since he is warm with his patients, cheerful and very willing to help... My treatment was complex since I had few embryos due to my low ovulation. But the doctor knew how to do it and I took the best decision in the world to put the embryos in me on the third day, thus getting pregnant.
the clinic [UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center] is simple and warm, there is a lot of human value that you can feel when you get to it, everyone is kind and concerned, if they have to work on a Sunday for any prosedimiento they do it, they are kind and attentive....the girls who work in the office are very dedicated and kind, for me that is my second clinic that I attended is very good indeed. I achieved it the first time I was more than pleased.

Dr. Attia is a competent doctor. He performed the treatment in a professional manner. He does not oversee his office staff and nurses appropriately. That is a problem. Patient treatment suffers because of it...I was supposed to have tests that they never gave me. So, I carried a miscarried pregnancy for three months because they never did a ultrasound...There are many other options in South Florida. I would see someone else.
They [staff at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center] forgot to tell me important details about my treatment. I was supposed to have tests that they never gave me. So, I carried a miscarried pregnancy for three months because they never did a ultrasound...I was not informed about the dosages of follistim that I was supposed to take each day. I had to call the on call number and then I got a nasty reaction from the nurse. They did not tell me what day to take the activation shot. When I called the on call line again, the nurse argued with me that I had been told by the doctor. After I had a positive pregnancy test, I was not called for any follow-up appointments. I was supposed to have ultrasounds (I was unaware of this). So the pregnancy ended, but I carried around an empty sac because I did not miscarry. It took 3 months for another doctor to figure out what happened and I had to have a d&c.

Describe your experience with UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center.
They were not very compassionate. The wait time was very long for blood work and appointments. I also had appointments that I was told to arrive for that were never placed on the calendar. When I expressed my concerns about the problems. They became irritated with me and my treatment became worse.

Dr. Ramasamy was patient with my husband and I. He didn’t rush through the consultation. He answered all of our questions throughly and made sure we understood the process. He explained the procedure and the possible outcomes...has very good bedside manners and he’s very professional and knowledgeable about his specialty. He’s understanding and patient with his patients. He gives you all possible information that you need to know regarding your treatment plan. He’s clear with his answers to your questions. He makes sure you’re completely satisfied before he exists the exam room. Most importantly, he doesn’t rush and he’s extremely patient.
[The nurses at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center are] Very pleasant and welcoming...there weren’t any cost associated with the consultation...We personally didn’t run into problems during the entire process. From the moment of booking the appointment to the actual appointment itself. It was smooth sailing. The wait time once we registered and signed in was less than 15 minutes. I honestly don’t have any weaknesses to add.
