Founded in 1987 by Dr. Michael DiMattina, our practice includes Dr. John David Gordon, Dr. Susan Sarajari, and Dr. Kay Waud. Throughout our history, we’ve been a leader in treating infertility. Here are just a few reasons that our patients choose us.
High Success Rates
We are very proud of our pregnancy rate. We take on many difficult cases, and our success rates are still very high. Most of our patients are able to achieve a clinical pregnancy after only 1 or 2 IVF embryo transfers using a single genetically normal embryo. Our multiple pregnancy rate (twins, triplets) is 1%, about 5 times lower than the national average. We also have very successful programs for Natural Cycle IVF, Egg Donor IVF, egg cryopreservation, ovulation induction, and more.
Personalized Care From Your Doctor
We believe it is important for you to get to know your doctor, and for your doctor to get to know you. With this in mind, we’ve structured our practice so that you see the same doctor—your doctor—at each of your appointments.
You will meet with your doctor for your initial consultation, and then frequently throughout your treatment to review results and revise your strategy. Under most circumstances, your doctor will perform your egg retrieval and embryo transfer.
Caring Staff Members
Our staff members are caring, experienced professionals who are committed to making the process as easy for you as possible. Our nurses and financial coordinators will work to ensure you have all the information, resources, and encouragement you need. We won’t rush you. You’ll have time to ask questions and have your treatment explained to you.
We partner with a variety of insurance plans and routinely submit all insurance claims for our patients. We can also help you determine your coverage before you begin treatment. For patients without insurance coverage, we offer competitive fee-for-service costs and multi-cycle discounts. If you choose IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) to treat your infertility, we have an IVF Guarantee program. No matter what your circumstances are, we will work with you to devise a plan to fit your budget and your needs.
Wide Variety of Treatment Options
We have a wide variety of cutting-edge treatment options, including Natural Cycle IVF, fertility preservation treatments, fertility assessments, and more. We will work with you to devise a plan that works best for you, not pressure you into a more aggressive treatment.
Cutting-Edge Technology and Innovative Methods
The laboratory is integral to your treatment. Under the experience and leadership of our head embryologist, Dr. Gerard Celia, our laboratory excels. Our lab pioneered our highly successful Natural Cycle IVF program in 2007 in the Washington, D.C. area. Now we have performed over 3,000 NCIVF cycles, making us the largest NCIVF center in the United States. We continue to employ cutting-edge techniques to give you the highest chance of success.
Everyone Deserves An Opportunity At Parenthood
We welcome all patients, even those who have been excluded from treatment at other clinics, or who have had unsuccessful IVF treatments with other doctors. As just one example, one of our patients had four unsuccessful stimulated IVF procedures at another clinic. In September, 2011, she delivered her own biologic pregnancy at 48 years of age after only one embryo transfer with us.
