Choosing a Miami Fertility Clinic
There are more than 11 fertility clinics in the Miami and South Florida area. FertilityAuthority.com has an extensive database of all fertility clinics in the Miami and South Florida area. Simply type in your zip code in the “Find a Clinic” search at the top of every page on the website. (And if you make an appointment, tell the doctor we sent you.)
Each year, all fertility clinics are required by law to submit their in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rates to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This information is compiled in the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Report. The report compares the type of ART used, such as fresh or frozen eggs, the number of cycles performed in each clinic, and the resulting number of pregnancies and live births. It also includes personal characteristics of each clinic, including the services it provides.
The CDC is considered the most complete database for fertility clinic information, though The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) also publishes clinic success rates. Because it takes three years for the CDC to collect and publish data from the fertility clinics, the most recent report available contains information from 2006.

Don’t Choose a Fertility Clinic Based Solely on Success Rates
Before choosing a fertility clinic, it is important for potential IVF patients to research the characteristics of each fertility clinic. Because these fertility clinics are competitive and strive for the best success rates, some may be selective about the patients they choose to treat. For example, some clinics may not take patients with certain conditions or over a certain age in order to preserve their success rates.
While it is important to research the live birth rates for these fertility clinics, particularly in women of the same age undergoing the same procedure as you, it is important to realize these rates should make up only part of the decision. Prospective fertility patients should make a list of questions to ask each clinic. Asking questions regarding tenure of the staff, age limits for treatments, and number of cycles done each year can help you get a good feel of the professionalism and ethics of the clinic and whether it’s a good match for you.
