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.

We started with Clomid [with Dr. Gil Wilshire] and it took me 3 weeks to respond to it. So the next cycle we started with Clomid and then switched to Follistim because of the reaction time of my body. The last cycle we did all Follistim and I still had a 3 week reaction time. I did develop follicles every time it just took weeks. All 3 IUIs were successful but ended in chemical pregnancies...We did 3 cycles of IUI. I have PCOS and no other known issues so this seemed like the most practical approach.
They [staff at Mid-Missouri Reproductive Medicine and Surgery] always knew exactly who I was...I think they should update the design and make it more comforting and inviting. They have all of the appropriate equipment it just seems like a very clinical setting. I've seen other clinics that were more inviting...The IUI itself was not that expensive. About $700 a cycle but my cycles were unusually long so it costs more.
How was your experience with Gil Wilshire at Missouri Fertility?
I just wish I actually got treatment from him more often. I usually always dealt with the nurses. I love how easy going and knowledgeable he is. He always gives us hope and encouragement when we do see him.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Gil Wilshire at Missouri Fertility?

Dr. Wilshire is very blunt, which I appreciate. He told me he thought our cycle could go either way but he had a plan based on our case. I appreciate that he was truthful and didn’t tell me that everything was great...The first 7 days of my cycle we used follistim and the next 7 we used menopur and ganirelix. This is a good protocol for pcos which I found out through my own research and his approach matched what I learned. For our FET, we did a lupron protocol and it worked.
$7800 for IVF - fresh transfer plus labs and meds. $2000 for FET plus labs and meds [at Mid-Missouri Reproductive Medicine and Surgery]...The staff was on the ball and I never had issues with anyone. The building the clinic is in is dated...The ultrasound machines were new in 2015 so they were nice...Marnie [nurse] was awesome! I could call and actually talk to her or she’d call me back within an hour. I even had her cell phone and called her at 9 pm one time with a question. She answered all my questions and talked me off of the ledge.

How was your experience with Gil Wilshire at Missouri Fertility?

Unfortunately for us not only was he completely honest but also went into further detail about our infertility than our previous doctor had not. He then proceeded to tell us about everything the clinic offers, from the cheapest route to the most expensive. He gave us a lot of information to talk and think over. We are very grateful and blessed that we found Dr Wilshire and his team!!!

Explained all options from the beginning. He was thorough with testing... He suspected endometriosis and confirmed via laparoscopic surgery. He explained all medication and pricing available to us as well as IUI and IVF. We completed 5 rounds of IUI, 4 with clomid and 1 with injections that all failed.

Dr. Wilshire is straight and to the point. I really liked this. When starting treatment he did not sugar coat anything and was quick to lay out the fact that I needed to lose weight to help the procedure be more successful. While straight and to the point Dr. Wilshire is very caring and has a great connection with his patients. You feel like part of a family with him.
The first treatment ended up being around 1,500. Second treatment was around 1,200....Both Kim and Amanda are amazing. Kim always greeted me with a smile and a hug. When some things didn't go exactly as planned, Kim showed just as much emotion as we did. She shows how much she truly cares about her patients. Amanda is just as sweet. She is always very polite, smiling, and makes you feel comfortable in a sometimes awkward situation.

He [Dr. Gil Wilshire] is blunt and straight to the point, which was refreshing and what we needed. He is friendly and would sometimes lightheartedly joke. Dr. Wilshire treated me and my husband like his only patients and he shared our same goal.... I was on birth control for a month then went on follistim and gonirelix for about a week and a half. Then HCG trigger and followed transfer with endometrin.
A big strength of this clinic [Mid Missouri Reproductive Medicine and Surgery] is its size. They are able to treat their patients as individuals and humans. The staff was always friendly and pleasant to be around. it was never a full waiting room, and I never had to wait long to see/speak to the nurse/doctor.... Our nurse was the best. She was friendly, compassionate, and 'ready' to get us pregnant. She has a great heart.

Dr Wilshire have been amazing!...Dr. Wilshire is big on single embryo transfer, he will do two, but recommends one at a time due to rhe high risk. He gives all the information and break down for the decision....Dr Wilshire has always been straight forward and honest. He also did my surgery!...Explains things well and honest!

Success w/ Doc Not sure
While Dr. Wilshire has absolutely been the fit for us, there are some people that may not appreciate some of his characteristics, such as blatant honesty or method of delivery. If you want warm fuzzies at every step, and not nearly as much personality, go elsewhere. ... Dr. Wilshire has been very honest and yet still compassionate. When we meet with him, we feel like we are his only interest at that moment.
Regular information regarding my insurance reimbursement, statements, balances, would have been helpful. ... Two specific members of the nursing staff [Missouri Fertility] that have been the most pleasant to interact with have been Kim and Amanda. ... The aesthetics are rather bland. ... There have been times things are discussed with Dr. Wilshire that when it comes treatment time, seem not to have made it to the staff. However, no clinic will ever be perfect.

[Dr. Gil WIlshire is] great. He’s extremely knowledgeable and makes you feel comfortable. He’s very good at explaing how things work and helping with the statistics and probabilities. During our first visit he explained to us in great detail what was wrong and what needed to be done to fix it...remembered us when he saw us, and helped us pick the best plan for us.
The nursing staff [at Mid-Missouri Reproductive Medicine and Surgery] can not be beat. Every time we came into the office we were treated like family... Kim, a nurse there, is literally one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. We had an unfortunate miscarriage and the office helped us through it even though they really didn’t have to...No weaknesses I can think of. Strengths are plentiful, easy parking, big waiting room. Usually if you show up to the appointment early they get you in early instead of letting you sit around, which is nice.

He [Dr Gil Wishire] is always honest and lets you know what your options or outcomes may be. If he's not certain he will tell you that. He always wants to make having your baby a reality and does everything in his power to make it happen.... I have PCOS so the goal was always give me enough medications to respond but not so much that I hyperstimulate. Low and slow is his motto with me.
They [the staff at Missouri Fertility] are very efficient at what they do. You can always get in touch with an actual person and they understand enough about your treatments to answer basic questions. They are open long hours almost every day of the week so that makes it easier to find an appointment time to fit your schedule.... The nurses always remember who we are even after long breaks in treatments and there's always someone there to answer the phones and give answers.

He [Dr. Gil Wilshire] was a little to blunt for me, didn't give us good news any time we have seen him. Now that's not his fault, but was hard to hear his brutal truth. Otherwise he's been good in the other stuff, surgery was good and think he has done his job well. I wish he was present a little more during some of the ultrasounds just so we could ask the doc questions instead of the nurses.
The clinic staff [at Mid MO Reproductive Med and Surgery] has been very helpful and patient with answering all of my questions. We have received timely callbacks when calling into the office. Upon arrival to the office, full payment for the days visit is expected each time.... Be patient and call plenty ahead of time because it took awhile to get in to see him.

My experience was great. I love his [Dr Gil Wilshire's] confidence and his candid statements. He gives it to straight but politely....Remember Dr. Wilshire is only a physician, God almighty has the ultimate say in outcomes....[The staff at Mid-Missouri Reproductive Medicine are] very compassionate and caring. Could slow down a bit when speaking to the patients to allow more time for accurate intake of the information. Organization, knowledge and compassion is strength. Weakness may be slightly older equipment.

Dr Wilshire was very thorough and honest from beginning to end about the process and our chances while being optimistic and maintaining the human element... Going into IVF both my husband I were nervous but the process ended up being smooth and pretty simple.
Marney [nurse at Mid-Missouri Reproductive Medicine and Surgery] was wonderful, gave us quick updates on bloodwork and protocol and even gave us her cell number during the last days of the retrieval... A super quick blood draw and then ultrasound to check follicles and you were on your way process!

Dr. Wilshire might not have a good bedside manner but it's improving. He does his job well and that mattered more to us....Remember that he knows what he's doing and will help you no matter what your first impression is.
The front staff has changed over time. It would good to have a regular face up front so they get to know who you are. I had that with out first child but not with our second.
