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.

I felt as if as a patient I was taken care of more...I was a human being who was there for a reason and he [Dr. Gil Wilshire] understood. I left there in tears when I had my last appointment because my iui worked. As much as he kept telling me he couldn’t, I wish I could have stuck with him through my whole pregnancy because this is his work. I trust him with everything fertility...He doesn’t play games or beat around the bush. He’s there for you and your partner. He’s there to give you what you went in for and won’t stop till you get it. Don’t stress.
[The nurses at Missouri Fertility are] So helpful! Those ladies have everything down. I was so scared and nervous my first few days going through treatment. They kept me calm and reassured...Strengths is they keep you informed.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He [Dr. Gil Wilshire] had a strong preference for only transferring one embryo at a time to achieve a healthy pregnancy...He was kind and put everything in layman's terms for me. He gave good evidenced based reasoning for PGS tested embryos. He was up front about cost of treatments. He was up front about his success rates...He is willing to work night and weekends to ensure successful retrieval...during the stims, lots of blood draws and ultrasounds. He is willing to work night and weekends to ensure successful retrieval.
Marnie [nurse at Missouri Fertility] would call me day or night, weekday or weekend. She gave me her cell number...IVF cycle approx 16k plus meds...Strength: Very organized, front desk staff very well informed...Weakness: I wish during the consult I would have been more prepared to know that IVF still is not sometimes successful on young healthy individuals...nursing staff was so sweet! The receptionists were extremely helpful as well.

Dr. Wilshire is very honest and he makes you feel like he truly cares about helping you...My husband and I had been trying to conceive for a year before we went to see Dr. Wilshire. During that first consultation he made us feel at ease and listened to us. He did a great job of explaining things so that we could understand. I ended up needing surgery to remove a large uterine fibroid. Dr. Wilshire performed the surgery and it went great. Since then we've been back to do IUI a couple times and will hopefully be able to do IVF at some point. Dr. Wilshire is very honest and he makes you feel like he truly cares about helping you.

Going in I was scared and nervous and didn’t know what to expect. He [Dr. Gil Wilshire] made sure to explain and listened to my concerns and made me feel comfortable and at ease. Never once did he make me feel stupid or like I didn’t matter. He took the time, made suggestions and because of him I’m expecting!...I had 2 IUIs...I felt like a human...If you need to make lifestyle changes then do it. He knows what he’s doing and what he’s talking about. Also, he’s not a magician and it’s not going to happen over night.
From the moment of calling and making my first appointment [at Missouri Fertility] I had a good experience. The front office staff was amazing on getting me set up, calling when a cancellation happened so I could be seen sooner to handling my insurance and questions. The nurses were explained procedures to me and how to take my medicine and injections...I had Kim and Amanda and both nurses are absolutely amazing! All staff was on point for me and when I had question knew the answers and helped me. I really appreciate all the staff! Clinic Nps

Dr. Wilshire treated us like part of his family...was very kind and respected our budget and fertility goals. We had a very low sperm count less than 2 million post wash and became pregnant on our 2nd IUI. During the first IUI we only used the trigger shot and the IUI failed. The 2nd IUI I took clomid, trigger shot, and progesterone. The 2nd IUI was successful and we are currently 8 weeks pregnant...I never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes in the waiting area.
The nursing staff [at Missouri Fertility] was very well educated and friendly...The prices seemed fair...They are very easy to contact and flexible with appointments. They have early morning, late afternoon, and Saturday appointments available. They were very prompt to answer the phone anytime I called.
