Attention to Detail

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. This data represents the outcomes of IVF cycles when using a person's own eggs.

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.

She [Dr. Schutt] is very intelligent and very much loves what she does. I loved how knowledgeable she was and that she is constantly learning and staying on top of all the new research. I completely trusted her and her recommendations the whole time and she is huge on patient advocacy. Our protocol worked perfectly (ended up with 4 euploid embryos) and had success on the first try...
Nurse Bobbie [at Baylor / Texas Childrens] was absolutely incredible. She completely made the experience at the clinic what it was and her care and compassion was so genuine...She was super responsive and answered everything thoroughly and timely.

How was your experience with Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Schutt is amazing and highly recommend. I very much love to have all of the science and information and she provided it all. She is very intelligent and very much loves what she does. I loved how knowledgeable she was and that she is constantly learning and staying on top of all the new research. I completely trusted her and her recommendations the whole time and she is huge on patient advocacy. Our protocol worked perfectly (ended up with 4 euploid embryos) and had success on the first try.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Trust Dr Schutt. She is 100% worth the wait and pricing.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Schutt had a calm and reassuring demeanor and always happy to answer all questions. I never felt like a number.
Describe the protocols Amy Schutt used in your cycles at Baylor / Texas Childrens and their degree of success.
While I am 36, I have no infertility diagnosis, our only issue was MFI (my AMH was even good at 4.3), so my protocol was very straight forward and minimal. I started my ER cycle with birth control until I was ready for stims to start (they even helped to manipulate my cycle based on a big work trip). I started with Menopur & Gonal and then as I progressed, Cetrotide was added in. I responded so well that I ended up only taking meds for 8 days (instead of 9) and triggered a day early. I was at a slight risk for OHSS, so they had me do a double trigger (Lupron and HCG). I started with 14 follicles under 9mm and ended up with 32 follicles between 10mm and 23mm. In total, I got 22 eggs, 19 were mature, 17 fertilized with ICSI, and ended up with 6 blasts (one day 5 and six day 6). After PGT-A testing I had 4 euploids, 2 boys and 2 girls. Schutt only offers frozen transfers and also requires a cycle off in between ER and FET as a cooling off period from hormones so that the body can recover. The month of FET, I started with estrogen patches and then 5 days before FET, added in PiO and Crinone suppositories. First try was a success (so far) and am currently graduated from the clinic and am 11 weeks pregnant.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Baylor / Texas Childrens. (Assigned nurse: Bobbie)
Nurse Bobbie was absolutely incredible. She completely made the experience at the clinic what it was and her care and compassion was so genuine. I found myself looking the most forward to seeing her after procedures! She was super responsive and answered everything thoroughly and timely. Even when other nurses would answer on Bobbie’s days off, everything was answered super quickly.
Describe your experience with Baylor / Texas Childrens.
I had a fantastic experience at FFC. Every single person from billing, genetics counseling, nurses, doctors, residents and even the front desk were the best of the best. I truly felt so taken care of, that I was sad to leave!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
Self pay pricing was $18,500 for one ER cycle and one FET cycle. Everything was included (procedures, monitoring, blood work, office visits, testing, etc) except embryo biopsy, PGT-A testing, medicine, and anesthesia. PGT-A Testing (6 embryos) - $1200 from Igenomix Biopsy - $800 Anesthesia- $750 ER meds (IVF Pharmacy) $3,000 FET meds $300-500. Genetic Carrier Test (Invitae) $250 (for both people together)
Describe Amy Schutt's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
Schutt only offers single embryo transfers to the best of my knowledge.

Dr. Woodard was incredibly empathetic yet honest during our initial consultation. She took the time to speak with me about realistic expectations concerning our situation. We decided to proceed with IUI with her and on the day of the procedure she was incredibly kind, warm, and excited...We had diminished ovarian reserve with a blocked tube and uterine fibroids and cervical polyps. Our chances with IUI or IVF were 3%. We decided to go with IUI as it was less invasive and insurance helped cover some of the expenses. We did 5 days of Clomid and triggered with Ovidrel. We were successful on our first IUI!
It [Baylor/Texas Childrens] is a teaching hospital, so expect that there will be residents and fellows who would like to also be involved in your care...The nurses were always so kind while visiting the clinic and would show empathy towards us if we had any issues. They would always take the time to answer our questions and make sure that we were okay. They would do this through the communication portal as well...
How was your experience with Terri Lynn Woodard at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Dr. Woodard was recommended to us by friends who had successfully used her previously. While it took a while to get in to see her (almost 4 months) it was worth the wait. We couldn't have asked for a better physician and she was the perfect fit for our family.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Terri Lynn Woodard at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
You might have to wait to see her, but it's worth it!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Terri Lynn Woodard at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Dr. Woodard was incredibly empathetic yet honest during our initial consultation. She took the time to speak with me about realistic expectations concerning our situation. We decided to proceed with IUI with her and on the day of the procedure she was incredibly kind, warm, and excited. When we got our positive pregnancy test, she was probably more excited for us than we were (we were still in shock). When we graduated from her office to our OB, she cried alongside us with happy tears and celebrated our success. We could tell her responses were pure and genuine. We continue to stay in touch with her and can't wait for her to meet our baby!

Describe your experience with Baylor / Texas Childrens.
The staffing of this clinic is phenomenal. I never had an issue with any of the employees or with the facility. It is a teaching hospital, so expect that there will be residents and fellows who would like to also be involved in your care. Ask questions if you have them, they are more than happy to educate and communicate!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Terri Lynn Woodard at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
With our insurance, we paid in total $250 for consultation, procedure, blood work (3), ultrasounds (4), and follow-up appointments (4) through 10 weeks of pregnancy. Without insurance, the charges would have been $5,600 for the same care.

How was your experience with Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Dr. Schutt was condescending and acted like I should be grateful just to be in her office instead of acknowledging all of the frustrations I had gone through (secondary infertility as a result of a missed complication from my first pregnancy). She was very cold during the consult and would randomly ask to see photos of my daughter or husband during inappropriate parts of the consult such as discussing my previous surgical history which felt forced and uncomfortable (and not medically relevant). Her documentation/note of my appointment also included many factual inaccuracies (she misdated when I underwent specific medical workup, when my daughter was conceived, and when I delivered my daughter). She also scheduled a procedure for me and then called two weeks later to cancel without providing a further or alternative treatment option. Overall it was a horrible experience that I still shudder thinking about, I am forever grateful that I did not continue my fertility treatment under her care.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Change your appointment to be with a different provider.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Dr. Schutt's office changed the time of my appointment by multiple hours the morning of the scheduled appointment and I had to ask a co-worker to cover for me to make it to the appointment. The entire time I was in the consult Dr. Schutt acted like I should be grateful that she made the time to see me instead of discussing what I had gone through and led me to her office.

Dr. Woodard, always walked in the door up-to-date and genuinely excited about the next step in my treatment. She cared about personal details and about how I felt about each step in the process...She has been nothing but supportive of my decision to be a Single Mother by Choice...She will go into detail if you ask, but not necessarily volunteer unneeded information
[at Baylor / Texas Childrens] Aesthetics are a little cold, but that is literally the only thing I don’t like about this clinic. The staff is extremely helpful and compassionate. The lab is one of the best in Texas, complete with the latest technology. This is a teaching hospital, so there is always an extra doctor in the room... which I loved because the younger (still learning) doctors often explain things in greater detail.
How was your experience with Terri Lynn Woodard at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
I came to Dr Woodard from another clinic for Baylor to perform ICSI and her to get me ready for FET. She was welcoming from the start, personable and always enthusiastic about the process. She has been nothing but supportive of my decision to be a Single Mother by Choice.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Terri Lynn Woodard at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Ask lots of questions. She will go into detail if you ask, but not necessarily volunteer unneeded information. I am a need-to-know patient, so I asked everything I could think of even down to the science.

Describe Terri Lynn Woodard's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
Because I am choosing to be a single mother, she strongly recommended transferring only one embryo. I completely agreed with her recommendation.

She [Dr. Schutt] is a good listener and has good bedside manner. She will answer every question and tell you the truth. I feel like she’s very knowledgeable and will listen if you have and idea or a suggestion. On the down side, it’s hard to sometimes get her to do the procedures or even make an appointment...she did say a multiple pregnancy was high risk, and that she couldn’t put mother and babies at risk “on purpose”. That her goal was 1 healthy baby.

Describe the protocols Amy Schutt used in your cycles at Baylor / Texas Childrens and their degree of success.
She used 100mg of clomid for the IUIs and the timed intercourse. Then she used 450 of gonal f, 2 vials of menopur, cetrotide and the trigger. She also used HGH to prime. Her rationale (even when I asked her about mini ivf) was that with DOR women, this was the protocol research confirmed worked best. She also mentioned that if it didn’t work out, she would be happy to try something different.

I still had to pay over 5k out of pocket for medications and I’m still waiting for the procedure bills. The insurance won’t cover a 2nd ivf cycle, and out of pocket costs are around 13k

She [Dr. Schutt] was very thorough and very compassionate towards me! She is an IVF Mom herself and understands the struggle that we go through. Throughout the treatment, she teaches residents or fellows, sometimes both. It made me feel good to have more than one person monitoring my care. The only draw back to her is the long wait for our initial consultation. After that, appointments were easy to schedule.
The clinic staff seem very compassionate and competent. The only drawback is the long wait for an appointment. They are very accommodating once you make an initial appointment....

He [Dr. Paul Zarutskie] has the perfect combination of compassion, empathy, realism and deep medical expertise that you want in a doctor in this field. He is a terrific communicator in a field where a lot of the decisions for patients are not black and white; he always answered any and all questions I had in great detail and was honest when the "right" decision was a bit ambiguous. He always did his best to put himself if my shoes and consider all implications of any decisions I made -- emotionally, physically and financially.
I was absolutely treated like a human and not a number [at Baylor/Texas Childrens]. They understand this is not an easy process for the patients and do their best to communicate in an effective, empathetic manner...entire staff was professional and great at communication. My primary nurse was Brandy, who was fantastic. Everything is through the patient portal, and she was always prompt to respond to any questions I sent through that.
How was your experience with Paul Zarutskie at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Dr. Zarutskie was recommended by a friend I trust a great deal. He has the perfect combination of compassion, empathy, realism and deep medical expertise that you want in a doctor in this field. He is a terrific communicator in a field where a lot of the decisions for patients are not black and white; he always answered any and all questions I had in great detail and was honest when the "right" decision was a bit ambiguous. He always did his best to put himself if my shoes and consider all implications of any decisions I made -- emotionally, physically and financially. This does not happen with all doctors, which is why I fully trusted him throughout this journey. It felt like he was a true partner along the whole journey with me, rather than just an advisor. Given my endometriosis diagnosis, he always explained all the risk factors in a straightforward and clear manner. He also made sure he was the one to do my retrievals and call me with the results himself; I appreciated his hands-on approach as it was clear he was putting his patients first.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Paul Zarutskie at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
He is willing and wanting to answers any and all questions you may have at any stage of the process. He has decades of experience in this field, so come prepared with all your questions and write things down if it helps; he will spend as much time as you need to feel comfortable and fully informed before making any decisions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Paul Zarutskie at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
I was absolutely treated like a human and not a number by Dr. Zarutskie and his staff. They understand this is not an easy process for the patients and do their best to communicate in an effective, empathetic manner.
Describe the protocols Paul Zarutskie used in your cycles at Baylor / Texas Childrens and their degree of success.
Egg retrieval for egg preservation. Lupron, menopur, gonal F, HCG trigger.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Baylor / Texas Childrens. (Assigned nurse: Brandy)
Dr. Zarutskie's entire staff was professional and great at communication. My primary nurse was Brandy, who was fantastic. Everything is through the patient portal, and she was always prompt to respond to any questions I sent through that. She also was very empathetic and compassionate about how she communicated with patients, which always helps as it's already a stressful process to begin with. The front desk staff and ultrasound techs were also very professional and kind; I only had positive experiences with all of them.
Describe your experience with Baylor / Texas Childrens.
Ultrasound appts and lab appts both started at 7am every day, which is very convenient for patients who work full time. The only downside to this clinic is that it's part of TCH so there was always a wait to get your labs done given the high number of patients being treated in the same lab.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Paul Zarutskie at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
I had great insurance coverage, but if you do have to pay out of pocket, the clinic offers a very competitive self-pay discount for those patients.

He is trustworthy and honest, blunt, yet compassionate. Some may think he has a dry sense of humor, but I understand that and it didn’t bother me. ... He will not just do what you want, but will direct you to the best course of action and what is medically healthy for mom/baby. ... He 99.9% only prefers to do SET due to risk of an embryo naturally splitting and higher risk to mom/baby with multiples.

Very busy clinic [Baylor / Texas Childrens] within Texas Children’s Hospital so parking gets busy . It is separate from the hospital and is actually in the medical pavilion for women. Clinic is always clean and procedure rooms are as sterile as possible. ... For IVF cycle with my own egg retreival it was $13,500 up front. This covered all office visits, labs, ultrasounds and embryo transfer. If anything wasn’t completed, you got refunded whatever amount was left at the end.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
Monitoring was scheduled at certain intervals, depending on the type of cycle. They’re always done in the morning, normally before 1030 in order for the provider to review results and give you an update by mid-day for any changes you might need to evening protocols.

He [Dr. Gibbons] is so knowledgeable that he may be hard to follow. If this is the case, ask him to repeat or say it in a different way. He also gets off on a tangent frequently; just redirect. He is very honest so if you’re looking for someone to give you answers you want rather than those you need, he is not your guy. He will tell you the truth no matter what. He does work with students, residents and fellows so you will have other sets of hands on you.
Clean facility [Baylor], parking is a little bit of a hassle due to the hospital’s garage. This is a teaching facility so you will have residents and fellows practice on you—it is often unpleasant as they are not as skilled but the doctor will step in when needed. The doctor does all the important parts like transfer and retrieval. It’s an all inclusive center so labs, u/s, OR are really in one spot. Lab is just down the hall....$13,500 for 1 IVF cycle including 5 U/S and 5 lab draws. If additional U/S or labs needed, will be additional cost but at discounted rate.
How was your experience with William Gibbons at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
From the beginning, we knew we wanted him to be our doctor. His experience, research work, and the data behind his work is excellent. He is a recognized name in his field. He is kind, funny, and compassionate but we also knew he was going to provide us honest answers, even when we didn’t want them. His skills are not like others; he is quick and knows what he’s doing when he’s doing it. I have never been in fear when in his hands.

Both he and his staff are very caring, responsive, and truthful. I knew we weren’t going to have to deal with nonsense there or being treated any less than we deserved to be.
Describe the protocols William Gibbons used in your cycles at Baylor / Texas Childrens and their degree of success.
(IVF with normal AMH, male factor infertility) IVF with birth control day 2 of full flow -daily gonal F, menopur, and Cetrotide -egg retrieval 1.5 month break—for PGS results, ERA procedure and to give body a break FET with frozen 5 day transfer -estrogen patches x 3 every 48 hours -blood draw and u/s day 12 -start Crinone vaginal gel x 2 daily -substitute PIO for PM Crinone every 72 hours -blood draw day 14 -transfer day 18 -change estrogen patches to 2 every 48 hours, continue Crinone Gel And PIO for total of 10 weeks -HCG levels day 10, 12 and 17 after transfer
Describe your experience with your nurse at Baylor / Texas Childrens. (Assigned nurse: Polly Haley)
I sent numerous questions, requests, and medication refills via email and Polly and her covering nurse Bobbie always answered my question the same day. I got results quickly and was notified of any changes immediately. I never felt ignored. They are a very organized group!

$13,500 for 1 IVF cycle including 5 U/S and 5 lab draws. If additional U/S or labs needed, will be additional cost but at discounted rate. With all the Co-pays, medication costs, and other fees (labs or other testing like imaging that were not part of IVF package and were not covered by insurance) we had to incur with anesthesia, storage, etc. I would estimate easily 3k-5k extra on top of the initial IVF cost. Plan for around $18k-$20k total for 1 cycle.
Describe William Gibbons's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
He is only for 1 embryo transfer at a time. That is the clinic’s policy for the safety and welfare of mom and baby. If you are looking for multiple embryo transferred in a single setting, he will not do this.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
She [Dr. Schutt] did some more testing on both my husband and I and found things that were unnoticed by previous doctors. She took the time to not only go over what each item meant, she gave us a solution but more than anything she gave us hope back. Every time we go into see her she reminds me that she had IVF done as well. She always makes sure that I leave with all my questions answered and leave my worries with her. I truly believe I can give her my worries of this journey and she gives me hope.
They [Baylor/ Texas Childrens] are welcoming and very understanding of your situation. From the moment you walk in the office till you walk out to the hospital I feel surrounded by love and hope. They are never in a rush to talk about money, they understand that we are not made of money and they look for ways to help...I cant say enough great things about the staff. They always tried to make me laugh (with out being weird) they were helpful and they always knew my name.
How was your experience with Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
As stated before, My husband and I had seen fertility doctors before who told us we were not meant to be parents. Each and every time that doctors words come to my mind Dr. Schutt goes out of her way to explain what great parents we will be. She always asks "what do you think about this" which gives me a moment to pause and say the fear or questions I have. She is never rushing us to the next person, I don't think I have seen her wear a watch or have a clock in her office. I often cry at appointments and when I say " I am sorry for crying" she always tells me that She cried a lot to and it is normal to cry. I know that doctors in fertility know the desperation everyone has when they visit. With the other doctors I always felt like a walking dollar sign but with Dr. Schutt, I feel like she is on my team. I feel as though while we are fighting this battle she has picked up the sword and is running full force in to the mess with us. No strings attached. Just wants to help us.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Skip everyone else. See her first
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
My husband and I have now seen four fertility doctors. Dr. Amy Schutt is by far the best doctor. When my husband and I started on this journey we were told by someone at another clinic that I was not fit to be a mother because of the my views on a topic. Nautically that was hard to process. Like every doctor, our first visit with Dr. Amy Schutt she asked us what our experience was on this journey. After sharing what happens she stopped the appointment to tell me what a great mother I would be and that she would help me get there. She did some more testing on both my husband and I and found things that were unnoticed by previous doctors. She took the time to not only go over what each item meant, she gave us a solution but more than anything she gave us hope back. Every time we go into see her she reminds me that she had IVF done as well. She always makes sure that I leave with all my questions answered and leave my worries with her. I truly believe I can give her my worries of this journey and she gives me hope.
Describe the protocols Amy Schutt used in your cycles at Baylor / Texas Childrens and their degree of success.
We started seeing her a few months ago, I did an ultra sound and some labs. I took some medication to start my period because I had not ovulated in over 3 months. Since then we have been playing the waiting game to see what is the best option. At first we planned on doing IUI this month however my husbands labs came back lower than we planned, so she took them time to explain IVF to us. A few of my friends have tried and lost children in IVF so I felt like I lost all of my hope. She sat with us for 30-45 minutes to calm me down and even changed my mind on IVF. I know we are in the begging stages of all of this, but I feel so much hope with her.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
That really depends on insurance. Our visits are $80 each time. Blood work depends on what they are looking at but when I went it was $120. We looked at IUI and for everything it was $625 and now we are saving for IVF which for meds and everything around $25K (at most)

He [Dr. Gibbons] seems to have difficulty speaking in complete thoughts and presenting those thoughts to patients. He starts a sentence and then rethinks it and then starts again over and over. He seems very nice but he seems too that he spends much of his time in a rush. For my egg retrieval, it seemed an inconvenience that it was on a Sunday and it was clear he wanted to hurry so he could attend services elsewhere.
never sent to speak with financial conuselor [at Baylor/Texas Childrens]...Hard to get trough to them. Old prerecorded message that goes on for a long time before you can talk to someone. Very limited doctors appointments and most of not all are midday with no sympathy to working women.... I have to call and ask for results instead of having them readily available. They allow other medical staff to practice on you, regardless of the pain it may cause you and do so without warning. It is very difficult to get appointments.

Frequently the clinic has to be reminded of things such as an increase in medication dose that needed to be called to my pharmacy. I was talked down to until they realized that I was indeed correct, and the doctor did want to increase meds with the next round. I have to call and ask for results instead of having them readily available. They allow other medical staff to practice on you, regardless of the pain it may cause you and do so without warning. It is very difficult to get appointments.

  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to order appropriate test
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
  • Scheduled the wrong procedure
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
Clomid was sent to pharmacy in wrong dose. When I called to tell them, the nurse asked me “What makes you think you should be taking more?” My doctor had told me to take more after my failed IUI. After a while, my pharmacy notified me that the new dose was ready. Not my clinic. I didn’t receive a call with my beta HCG until I requested a call at 4:30pm. We had discussed doing an ERA but my paperwork and instructions all stated FET. The day of my beta HCG there was no order in the system and I had to wait for it to get put in.

Dr. Woodard will hold your hand, give you a hug, laugh with you and I genuinely feel that she knows my pain. (That which I have had both emotionally and physically.) Treatment isn't for the weak, I learned how strong I could be and I feel she plays a big part in that...As things continue to not go as planned per se we are starting to get more aggressive...Dr. Woodard as well as her fellows always knew what was going on with me. They made my wife and I feel comfortable from day one!
There has never been a long wait to see the doctor [at Baylor/Texas Childrens] . They are very organized, Anna is great on the finance end. She has been a great help when trying to get a referral from my PCP. Scheduling and ivf, well you kinda have to work around your body, so when they call and say I have an appointment I take it. There isn't much wiggle room in appointments but that's understandable!

I was impressed with the amount of time that Dr. Gibbons and his fellow spent with me. It's easy to see that he cares about his patients and wants them to have a ssuccessful pregnancy.... He is incredibly intelligent and is an accomplished RE. He is what I call a "fast talker" and uses mostly medical jargon so it is tough to keep up with his train of thought sometimes...All in all, we find that he is personable and a good option as far as RE's go...
I have been impressed with the clinic. The office [Baylor/Texas Childrens] is located in the new section of the hospital so it is modern and clean. The hospital is so large that it's tough to navigate, but they kindly provide a map and other helpful information for you on your first visit to help. One weakness is that the blood lab is inconveniently located and seems to always have a long wait.... The nursing staff has been wonderful! They are friendly, supportive, and extremely knowledgeable.
How was your experience with William Gibbons at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
I have only had limited experience with Dr. Gibbons because we just started working with him. However, my experience has been mostly positive so far. He is incredibly intelligent and is an accomplished RE. He is what I call a "fast talker" and uses mostly medical jargon so it is tough to keep up with his train of thought sometimes. Thankfully, through my infertility journey I have read enough books where I could follow along okay, but I could see where someone could leave a bit confused. All in all, we find that he is personable and a good option as far as RE's go.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of William Gibbons at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
My advice would to be to always bring a notebook so that you can jot quick notes while he's talking.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with William Gibbons at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
I was impressed with the amount of time that Dr. Gibbons and his fellow spent with me. It's easy to see that he cares about his patients and wants them to have a ssuccessful pregnancy.
Describe the protocols William Gibbons used in your cycles at Baylor / Texas Childrens and their degree of success.
So far we are still in the stage of doing a lot of testing. After our initial 3 hour consult, he ordered a large panel of bloodwork to be done. He was checking for clotting disorders, lupus markers, thyroid issues, prediabetic markers, and did a karotype. He also is having me do a certain HSG that tests my uterine cavity. For my husband who has a normal sperm count, he is having a lab perform a test call a Sperm Fish to determine if the dna in his sperm is aligned properly.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
The nursing staff has been wonderful! They are friendly, supportive, and extremely knowledgeable.
Describe your experience with Baylor / Texas Childrens.
I have been impressed with the clinic. The office is located in the new section of the hospital so it is modern and clean. The hospital is so large that it's tough to navigate, but they kindly provide a map and other helpful information for you on your first visit to help. One weakness is that the blood lab is inconveniently located and seems to always have a long wait.
Describe the costs associated with your care under William Gibbons at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
So far we have only had a consult amd we have great health insurance so we just had to pay our $40 copay. The only other expense so far is for my husbands Sperm Fish procedure. Because it is not covered by insurance, we have to pay $1,050.00 out of pocket.

He [Dr. William Gibbons] is very nice but make sure you ask questions...Everything is online which is helpful as a reminder but it is still needed to talk to the doctor. He seemed to confuse himself the few times we did talk and had to remind him of what we were trying to do. The nurses pretty much ran everything and then he would just oversee. Which is why he probably let me go further in the treatment that I should've because I wasn't producing enough eggs. He ended up canceling the cycle and the nurse had just made me pay $900 to rush more medicine to try to continue when latter that same day Dr. Gibbons canceled. I was left with medicine I paid for and never used!
The facilities [at Baylor/Texas Childrens] are excellent, modern, and easy to find. Parking is an issue sometimes because it is in the hospital and it's $12. Besides parking really there no other complaints. The facilities hold everything you need for example you could go downstairs and get blood work...ended up canceling the cycle and the nurse had just made me pay $900 to rush more medicine to try to continue when latter that same day Dr. Gibbons canceled.

How was your experience with William Gibbons at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
I only saw Dr. Gibbons twice. Not very involved specifically in the cycle. Even though I was traveling over 500 miles to see him.

Describe the costs associated with your care under William Gibbons at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
The office provided us with options using out of the country medication, which was a bit scary, but of course cheaper. I believe we spent around $4000 in medication. But since I had to travel to Houston from El Paso travel expenses added a huge amount to the treatment.

Like mentioned before, the nurse ordered more medication assuming the doctor would continue treatment and it was canceled. I was left with medication I didn't use and money spent.

He [Dr. Williams Gibbons] was very warm during initial apppintment and ultrasound. During second appointment, he delivered news that I was infertile in a very matter of fact way without allowing me time to process. I didn't even know what PCOS was and was just placed on 500mg dose of Metformin. He asked a nurse to come in and discuss my IUI instructions and scheduled and I started crying. They did not even ask me if I wanted to do IUI or test my progesterone to see if I was ovulating.
[Baylor Texas Childrens] May not be best for someone trying to figure out their fertility issues and not yet diagnosed with an issue. Is better for someone who is ready to do IVF right away... Dr. Gibbons was very nice at initial appointment and gentle with transvaginal ultrasound. He was an hour late, very pushy towards IVF and IUI without much explanation and easily frustrated at the next appointment. However, he will run any tests for you and if you don't want to try other options or get tested for anything and jump straight to IVF or IUI then he may be a good fit for you

They did not even ask me if I wanted to do IUI or test my progesterone to see if I was ovulating. When I asked if IUI was around $3k, the cheerful nurse said that it could be higher with his weird smile that made me question what exactly made her so happy. I wanted to discuss my infertility more and what could be tested and treated since only my A1c and AMH was tested in initial appointment. They kept on pushing for IVF saying that due to my high AMH levels, I'm an excellent candidate. The doctor got upset that I was crying because the nurse had scolded him for not being thorough with me before calling her in. He asked if I wanted a hug after I explained that the push for IUI/IVF without further testing, clomid, or increased Metformin made no sense. He said he answered all of my questions (I had questions about my thyroid afffecting my fertility) and what more did I want. I was very shocked because he was so much nicer at the initial appointment. I am now searching for another RE.

My insurance didn't cover any fertility treatment so I had to pay $700 for a couple of appointments and tv ultrasound

I...wouldn't hesitate to refer him [Dr. Gibson] to others...His communication style and bedside manner are probably not for everyone. He has an "odd" sense of humor...The only time I questioned him was after our failed transfer. I was devastated... Dr. Gibbons came off as brusque and defensive at that particular appointment, which was exactly what we did not need at that time...He is a brilliant man, and tremendously passionate about his work and his patients. If you can get past his quirky sense of humor he is an amazing doctor.
Dr. Gibbons and his nurses made me feel like the most important patient they were treating. They responded to every single one of my questions in a timely manner. They always knew the details of my case....I can see how the TMC is not ideal for everyone. As far as scheduling goes, the clinic is amazing. They were rarely running behind, and monitoring appointments were amazingly efficient. The not so great...it was impossible for anyone to tell me how much anything would or could cost. Every bill was a complete surprise. I got into a huge fight with Greater Houston Anesthesiology over a double bill situation, and more than a year after my first retrieval I'm still not SURE that I am done paying for everything!
How was your experience with William Gibbons at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
I have already referred Dr. Gibbons to two friends, and wouldn't hesitate to refer him to others as well. I am forever grateful to him and his office for his knowledge and expertise. His communication style and bedside manner are probably not for everyone. He has an "odd" sense of humor. But it worked for my husband and me, and he is a giant in his field. The only time I questioned him was after our failed transfer. I was devastated. We had a PGS tested embryo; we had done a day 6 transfer based on my ERA results; we did everything right. And it took us six full months just to get to that failed transfer. And we couldn't REALLY understand why the transfer had failed. I doubted the ERA test; I wondered if we needed to repeat; I wondered if some of my PGS non normal embryos should have been transferred; and I wondered if I was with the right clinic altogether based on SART data. Dr. Gibbons came off as brusque and defensive at that particular appointment, which was exactly what we did not need at that time. We did end up scheduling a consult with a different clinic, but ultimately decided to stick with Gibbons. I am glad I did. Our second cycle was a success.

Describe the protocols William Gibbons used in your cycles at Baylor / Texas Childrens and their degree of success.
My first cycle was 300 follistim and 2 vials of menopur each night, and cetrotide toward the end of stimming. Six eggs were retrieved. Five were mature. Four fertilized and they all made it to day 5 blasts. We biopsies them all for PGS. Only one came back as normal. The next step was an endometrial receptivity assay (ERA). The day five results came back as pre receptive. We scheduled a day 6 transfer for my lone blast. It came back negative. We started up again with the addition of HGH to my stim cycle plus increased follistim to 450. The second retrieval netted 8 eggs. Only 3 made it to blast from that round, and again only one genetically normal embryo. We transferred on day 6 again and I am currently 18 weeks pregnant with that blast.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
De. Gibbons' nurses are absolute angels. They are knowledgeable and compassionate and respond to every single question and MyChart message with a thoughtful and complete answer. They are amazing.
Describe your experience with Baylor / Texas Childrens.
For me th location was great -- walking distance from work -- but I can see how the TMC is not ideal for everyone. As far as scheduling goes, the clinic is amazing. They were rarely running behind, and monitoring appointments were amazingly efficient. The not so great -- we had insurance coverage for our first cycle, and it was impossible for anyone to tell me how much anything would or could cost. Every bill was a complete surprise. I got into a huge fight with Greater Houston Anesthesiology over a double bill situation, and more than a year after my first retrieval I'm still not SURE that I am done paying for everything!
Describe the costs associated with your care under William Gibbons at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
We had insurance coverage for 75% of treatment costs up to $15,000, and a $3,500 prescription drug cap. I total we spent more than $18,000 out of pocket on medical expenses last year, which included two egg retrievals, two rounds of PGS testing, an ERA test, and two transfers, plus all my meds.
Describe William Gibbons's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
Dr. Gibbons strongly prefers to transfer single embryos. He also recommended PGS given my poor egg quality, and really only transfers singles for PGS tested embryos. Aside from that, we only had one embryo to transfer each cycle.

Dr. Schutt explained all of the procedures and test in layman’s terms, she explained what all the results of those tests meant, and always let us know what the “game plan” would be or what our schedule may look like going forward. Throughout our journey she would always show compassion and empathy when our results were negative. And when we had our miracle baby during our first FET she came and visited us in the hospital.
The clinic’s [ Baylor / Texas Childrens] strengths included very short wait times to see the doctor, responded quickly to questions sent via email, and provided a financial counselor. All of the testing was done on site so that was also beneficial...The nurse are very responsive to any emails or messages you leave.
