We continue to improve our clinical care by applying scientific advancements. The result of this is consistently high pregnancy and live-birth rates. A comparison of fertility clinic success rates may not be meaningful because patient medical characteristics and treatment approaches may vary from clinic to clinic.

ART clinics in the U.S. are required by law to report outcomes to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As with the majority of U.S. fertility programs, we follow the guidelines of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) in reporting success rates. Each year, SART and the CDC collect, compile, and publish clinic-specific data. Results are organized by state and procedure. The data also includes information on pregnancy outcomes, such as the rate of miscarriage, twins, and other multiple births.

Insurance Providers

We contact with a limited number of insurance companies. When contracting with insurance companies, providers are often forced to increase their fees to ensure maximum reimbursement. We believe that this negatively impacts that majority of our patients who are without insurance benefits. Therefore, we have chosen to not take this approach. After doing the research, we can assure you that the majority of our patients benefit from our lower cash pay system. In addition, because of our unique patient care model, patients typically find that their care is so well stream-lined and carefully administered that their overall costs are still lower than what they “paid other places”. Questions? Call today and let us help with information about in vitro fertilization cost, IUI cost, fertility test for men, fertility test for women, genetic testing pregnancy or anything else you may need. Our patients come to us from San Francisco and The North Bay, Novato (Marin County), Santa Rosa and nearby areas.
