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.

Dr.Chamoun suggested IUI for my husband and me. We decided to do the IUI with Femara. When the first round of Femara was not a high enough dose he stoped the cycle and immediately started again with a higher dose to increase egg maturity and also to save us money by not scrapping the cycle completely... The first time we met with Dr.Chamoun I felt that he was a little abrasive. My husband and I came out of the meeting wondering why he was a little cold. The next time I saw him I was having an HSG. If you know of this test you know it can be very painful. This time he was extremely nice, and made sure to make me feel as comfortable as I could be
The nursing staff [at Viera Fertility Center- Melbourne] is great! They are compassionate and treat you as though you are a friend who is telling them your struggles. The only thing I wish was different about this office was maybe having assigned nurses for each couple.... We used the IuI package that Dr.Chamouns office has set up for people without insurance. This package is $1000 and included everything but medication

How was your experience with Diran Chamoun at Viera Fertility Center?
The first time we met with Dr.Chamoun I felt that he was a little abrasive. My husband and I came out of the meeting wondering why he was a little cold. The next time I saw him I was having an HSG. If you know of this test you know it can be very painful. This time he was extremely nice, and made sure to make me feel as comfortable as I could be. He would ask me during the procedure if I was doing okay and insured me that it would be only a few more minutes. He also told me everything he was doing. From inserting the catheter to injecting the dye. From then on I had a great relationship with Dr.Chamoun. His goal is to make families.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Diran Chamoun at Viera Fertility Center?
Don’t let the first meeting you have set the tone for your experience at this office. Dr.Chamoun is straight forward and to the point but he is also hopeful and gives hope to his patients as well.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Diran Chamoun at Viera Fertility Center?
I felt like a human instead of a number because Dr.Chamoun was understanding and also aware of my feelings. During procedures he would ask if I was okay, and how I was doing to insure I wasn’t in any pain.
Describe the protocols Diran Chamoun used in your cycles at Viera Fertility Center and their degree of success.

Describe your experience with Viera Fertility Center.
This clinics strengths are compassion, understanding of not only emotions but also financial struggles, and skill. If you hear Dr.Chamouns name, the next thing that follows is usually “he is very good at what he does, one of the best.” The only weakness of this clinic is that they have had so many different nurses, as soon as I feel I am the most comfortable with one nurse I see a new one and start my relationship over.

He [Dr. Freeman] seemed very knowledgeable and to have a system that he followed. He is very mild mannered and did not show any emotion. He answers all of your questions. He is communicates in a way that makes you trust him and know that he believes he is doing the right thing for you. ... He seemed to remember my case, sometimes. ... We used clomid due to a likely ovulation dysfunction
It’s a satellite clinic [Viera Fertility Center] so my doctor was only there twice a week, would have preferred to see him every time. They are quick to call back with answers to any questions. The location was great and they were accommodating to make room in the schedule for appointments when you needed them. ... [nursing staff] Very friendly and answered any questions. Also helpful with the trigger shot and teaching me how to do it.

He [Dr. Diran Chamoun] was very matter of fact and not overly friendly. His bedside manner isn’t the best but I could tell he wanted to help us. He seemed very knowledgeable and eager to get going on treatment without jumping to IVF. He was willing to humor right into treamtnet again after my first IUI failed.... Don’t expect him to be super social and friendly. But he is helpful and wants to help you.... The medical assistants were very nice and dr Chamoun seemed interested in getting me pregnant. He is a little abrupt and not overly friendly but I still liked him.
The clinic [Viera Fertility Center- Melbourne] was very clean and newer and very nice looking. The decor was nice. I was very comfortable going there. The location is kind of confusing as there aren’t many signs showing you where to go and all the buildings looks the same.... Including consultation, visits, ultrasounds, semen analysis, medication, HSG and IUI it cost us around $3,500... The medical assistants were very nice and dr Chamoun seemed interested in getting me pregnant. He is a little abrupt and not overly friendly but I still liked him.
