The success rates for Acacio Fertility Center are among the highest in the country, in all age categories.The Acacio Fertility Center is pleased to report its latest IVF success rate, based on its verified data submitted to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Society of Assisted Reproductive Technology.
Acacio Fertility Center was established in February 2008 after Dr. Brian Acacio took over the former Sher Institute for Reproductive Medicine in Orange County. While SIRM-OC enjoyed some of the highest pregnancy rates in all of Southern California, and certainly, Orange County, it wasn’t until Dr Acacio successfully took over sole control of the laboratory that the bar was raised yet again, with regards to IVF success rates.
Today, Acacio Fertility Center offers unsurpassed quality control and breakthrough procedures. It is backed by Dr. Brian Acacio's reputation as a leading reproductive endocrinologist. Acacio Fertility Center's reported success rates are verifiable. Starting in 2009 and going forward, Dr. Acacio will have his first full-year cumulative success rate reported under "Acacio Fertility Center" to the national data registry.
