I only saw Dr. Gelbach once during a procedure. All other visits were with his NPs. He explained things through the procedure. He tried asking general conversation questions to distract me from the pain but that didn't help....Organized and always prepared for us. Never had to wait long in the lobby [MW Repro Ctr - Olathe]....NP, Lauren, listened to my concerns and made us feel at ease even during the difficult times....out of pocket for iui's. A little under $1,000 each time

Dr. Gehlbach has a quiet, serious personality. He seems very focused and intelligent. During the initial consultation, they really took the time to learn about what we had already tried and what we were interested or not interested in pursuing.
They got to know me, and listened to me talk about my family...They seemed very interested in me and as eager as I was to find out the result of my treatment.

He’s called several times just to check on us after failed cycles or when things don’t go as expected. ... He is very personable and friendly! We may not see him at every visit but I really love the NPs [Midwest Repro Center] that I see! ... For IUI we used oral meds. They explained to me that I had responded well enough to the oral meds that injectables were not necessary. We interviewed 5 clinics and they were the first ones to explain it. We’ve since moved on to IVF and he explains why we’re doing med changes and what the new meds will do
Payments are due up front then they [Midwest Reproductive Center] will file insurance and if services are covered you will receive a credit. ... Love the staff! The portal was confusing at first but they have updated it so it is more user friendly. We came prepared with questions and they didn’t disappoint us in answering them!
How was your experience with Dan Gehlbach at Midwest Reproductive Center?
He is very personable and friendly! We may not see him at every visit but I really love the NPs that I see! I’m pretty sure that they’ve all been through this personally and I know they communicate with Dr.G at every step of care. He’s called several times just to check on us after failed cycles or when things don’t go as expected.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dan Gehlbach at Midwest Reproductive Center?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions-even if you think they’re silly!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Dan Gehlbach at Midwest Reproductive Center?
The entire office is so great! We’ve been with them for almost a year. I feel like they really get to know you. Dr. G gave my husband his personal cell number after our retrieval just in case we needed anything that night!

[Dr. Dan Gehlbach] Strongly suggested eSET...is a very polite individual, I just strongly question whether he communicates with his nurses prior to appointments. He never seemed to have the information talked about in our previous appointments...The weakness is communication and the new nursing staff. The doctor should not have to learn about past conversations with nurses during the next appointment. It should be noted and communicated to him following the appointment...3 IUI cycles with Clomid/letrozole and then moves straight into IVF...Make sure you are comfortable with the care you are receiving from the nurses, because you will work with them most of the time.
My husband and I absolutely loved Kim, who recently left MRC for another Fertility Clinic. She was fantastic and was the biggest reason why we chose MRC. Her and the other nurse we liked have both left in the past few months and their replacement has since argued with me and was super unprofessional during an embryo transfer. She did not pay attention during the procedure and I feel it could have negatively impacted the results...1000 for iui...17000 for ivf...Billing always went smoothly. The weakness is communication and the new nursing staff. The doctor should not have to learn about past conversations with nurses during the next appointment. It should be noted and communicated to him following the appointment.

Dr. Gehlbach has great bedside manner. Very calm and collected. Gives you all the info you need up front. You will see a lot of nurse practitioners though. I only saw Dr. Gehlbach a few times while doing IUI's. When I moved to IVF I saw him more...With embryo transfers we used estradiol pills, endometrin, and progesterone in oil. 9 days after a transfer you receive a blood pregnancy test.
This clinics [Midwest Reproductive Center] strength is the staff. So kind and compassionate. I've always felt cared for whether it was the nurses or doctors...You will see a lot of nurse practitioners...A weakness is communication. It is really hard to get a nurse on the phone. Not the front desk. I had the best luck with the online portal...Embryo transfers are $3,500 not including meds. Egg retrieval was around $15,000.

He's [Dr. Dan Gehlbach] smart and professional. I like his personable and desire to help people. I would recommend him to treat each patient based on their past experience and not treat everyone the same, I've been through a lot before I saw him ago and he treated me like I was a brand new patient who didn't know anything about ivf, etc.... He's professional and will get the job done. It might just take a while
