Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He [Dr. Chantilis] clearly sees a lot of patients, so a few times I felt like I had to remind him of my particular situation. I have had a few tests where my results were on the border of being normal vs. concerning (likely not causing my issues, but still a slight possibility). In both cases, he preferred to go the route of treating for each issue...does not have the warmest bedside manner, but he is obviously very knowledgeable in the field. He is very busy, and I often waited a very long time whenever I had an appointment to meet specifically with him
all of the nurses [at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates] I have dealt with have been exceptionally warm and supportive...though I work with Holly the most. She is very warm and supportive, helpful, knowledgeable, and clearly communicates so that you understand each step throughout the process. I always feel like I understand much more about the process or results after speaking with Holly...The clinic itself is conveniently located and provides a clean, inviting atmosphere. Because there are multiple doctors at the clinic, in the event my doctor was not available on the day of my scheduled IUI, someone else was there to be able to do it.
How was your experience with Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
Dr. Chantilis is clearly very knowledgeable, though his bedside manner is not the warmest. He is thorough - he performed multiple tests before starting treatment to ensure every box was checked first. While I trust his expertise, I often had a hard time truly understanding what he was telling me or explaining to me because he is very technical - sometimes it can be a little intimidating to push for further clarification when you don't understand the medical lingo.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
Don't be afraid to ask a lot of questions and push for better explanation if you can't understand what is being described.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
Dr. Chantilis does not have the warmest bedside manner, but he is obviously very knowledgeable in the field. He is very busy, and I often waited a very long time whenever I had an appointment to meet specifically with him, though never if I was coming in for routine tests (blood work, sonogram) that would be handled with the nurses. For the record, all of the nurses I have dealt with have been exceptionally warm and supportive.
Describe the protocols Samuel Chantilis used in your cycles at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
I have experienced multiple early miscarriages - 3 before seeing Dr. Chantilis and 1 while under his care. After multiple tests upfront to check for any possible explanations for my miscarriages, we started a cycle of Clomid. The first cycle we used Clomid + a shot of Ovidrel and timed intercourse but did not get pregnant. The second cycle we used Clomid + Ovidrel + IUI and got pregnant. Unfortunately HCG levels fluctuated irregularly and I miscarried around 6 weeks.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.
My insurance covered everything (I pay a co-pay at visits) except for semen prep fee ($160) for IUIs because the IVF lab is not covered by my insurance.

Dr. Chantilis is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. He is willing to tell you his honest opinion about your specific diagnosis and treatment. ... I’ve had a tubal reversal. Only one tube was salvaged. We have done timed intercourse, timed intercourse with clomid and gonal. I’ve taken metformin for PCOS. My husband has taken clomid and treatment for retrograde ejaculation. We have done IUI’s, at least 4 HSG’s, countless blood work and sonograms over 3 1/2 years. We have gotten pregnant once that ended in an ectopic pregnancy and now we are hopeful to move forward with IVF or INVOcell.
I don’t have a negative thing to say about the clinic [Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associats]. They are always accommodating, caring and professional. I would say to make sure you listen to the Doctor. My only regret was not initially just jumping into IVF like I was told, and still struggling to get pregnant over 3 years later. Listen to your plan, follow protocol, and keep the faith!
How was your experience with Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
Dr. Chantilis is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. He is willing to tell you his honest opinion about your specific diagnosis and treatment. He has excellent bedside manner. When we decided to look into fertility treatments, I was 34. I had previously had my tubes tied and been remarried to my husband who has no children. We decided to move forward with Dr. Chantilis after hearing rave reviews from my obgyn of 20 years. He gave us his honest opinion to move forward with IVF, as not to waste unnecessary time and money. He was right all along.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
Listen and follow through with his fertility plan for your specific diagnosis.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
Every time I had an appointment with Dr.Chantilis he was very kind and personable. His staff is very kind and helpful.

Even though Dr. Chantilis hasn't been involved with every visit and procedure, I have always been taken of. He's performed a procedure and called me personally. My husband and I have met with him one on one multiple times. He's honest and gives you a great understanding of how your body is working. He also explains procedures and what's up next. He is the best in the industry and I would recommend him to anyone.
Holly is an angel. She is patience, compassionate, and loves her patients. She truly cares for me. She's been my primary nurse [at DFW Fertility Assoc] from day one. There have been plenty of days that I would call her to just ask a question, cry, or just babble on about what my husband did, and she was there to listen. I'm so grateful for this nurse! Ruth is the other nurse for Dr. C. I've worked with her as well. She's been with Dr. C for like 15 years. She knows her stuff and I enjoyed working with her as well.

Dr. Chantilis isn't super social and warm and fuzzy. Don't let that deter you. He's very intelligent and is really good at what he does. Also, you don't see him a lot, so establish a good relationship with your nurse. Ruth and Holly and are the BEST.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
My nurse, Holly, has called me on a timely manner. She discusses options and gives me realistic expectations. I feel like I matter and always cared for.
Describe the protocols Samuel Chantilis used in your cycles at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
I was immediately diagnosed with PCOS when I started seeing Dr. C. Before he would do a medicated cycle, he wanted my husband tested and for me to do a HSG procedure. Dr. C wanted to make sure he was fertile and my tubes weren't blocked. Meanwhile, I was put on Metformin. We were cleared to try clomid. We did one low dose of clomid. Nothing happened, so we did a higher dose. Then we continued with a total of 4 rounds, out of the 4 he added in the Ovidril trigger shot to 2 cyles. We tried an IUI with clomid + Ovidril as well. All negative tests. I requested we change to something different due to the side effects. Then I started Letrozole, Gonal F, and Ovidril for 3 cycles. We did one IUI with this. All negative tests. Within all of these cycles, I usually went in CD10 to get tested for follicle progress. We never did a "blind" time intercourse or IUI. Some weeks I was in for a sono three times. Dr. C wanted to ensure we timed ovulation/IC just right. After our last cycle, Dr. C suggested IVF. He didn't push, but he gave us options. 1. He gave us the option to continue IUIs and medicated cycles. He said that I would need to go in for a laparoscopy to check for endo if were to continue. 2. He gave us the option to do Mini-IVF which is a little cheaper than a full blown IVF. You aren't on as many medications as the other. 3. Full blown IVF We are waiting to see if we can get pregnant naturally, but decided to do full blown IVF.

Describe your experience with Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.
This clinic is organized. They have protocols. At first you may feel like they are just shuffling you through, but each lady here cares. Don't let the organization make you feel like a number. Talk to the girls in the front and the other nurses. They are all very sweet and work hard to make the office function so flawlessly. One thing that threw me off is each cycle must be paid in full before moving on to the next. In the grand scheme of things, I get it. It just caught me off guard when I owed hundreds all at once.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.

He [Dr. Chantilis] was thorough, but not afraid to try different protocols. He was candid and always told the truth even if it wasn't what I wanted to hear. He did come across as a yuppie, but a very nice one. We never had to wait very long to see him. He was up front about our chances of success, and didn't seem to worry about messing up his clinics statistics...It never seemed liked he was rushing. He always answered questions and gave us lots of information.
[DFW Fert Assoc] Strengths: Excellent Care, Lab is top notch Weaknesses: The clinic doesn't offer their own refund option for IVF...Deborah and Gayla our donor coordinator were fantastic. They always made sure I understand my medicine protocols and dosage and my test results. They were very efficient with communication and used email a lot. Gayla was exceptionally friendly and helpful...$15,000 - Fresh IVF transfer using an in house donor. Clinic splits the eggs with patient.

Describe the protocols Samuel Chantilis used in your cycles at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
He suggested we use Lupron for both of my cycles, but wasn't opposed to not using it. We used oral estrace and progesterone injections prenatal vitamin and baby aspirin for first cycle. Second cycle we added lovenox, and he tested for immunity issues since I miscarried my fresh donor egg transfer, when the tissue was tested and came back normal. Also I have a genetic blood clotting disorder already known from years before the cycles, but I did wind up being borderline on my immunity testing for one of the tests. He also had us do a mock cycle before my transfer and a hysteroscopy for both cycles. During the first hysteroscopy a lot of endometrial polyps were found on one side of my uterus. He said for best success with implantation they should be removed by way of D&C surgery, so we did that.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.
$15,000 - Fresh IVF transfer using an in house donor. Clinic splits the eggs with patient. This included all donor costs, and IVF transfer and monitoring but didn't include my medication or my hysteroscopy, or annual storage for any embryos resulting from the cycle that were quality enough to freeze and store, or any surgeries needed on the uterus to make the uterus the best possible environment for an embryo to implant. Medication was coordinated through the clinic and the specialty pharmacy (Mandell's pharmacy out of New Jersey) they dealt with did appear to be the cheapest when I called around.
Describe Samuel Chantilis's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.
Dr. Chantillis educated us on eSET, and showed us what category we fit into. Even though on our second transfer we could have opted for 2 embryos I'm so glad he talked us out of it because during my pregnancy at 20 weeks I nearly went into labor and I had to have an emergency cerclage surgery after half the amniotic sac slipped through my cervix. We nearly lost our baby, and would have if we had had multiples. I was on bed rest for 133 days as it was, and our daughter was born at 38 weeks and 6 days healthy at 8 pounds and 10 ounces.

There were many times that Dr. C did scans that a nurse could have done. He expressed interest in my case and was excited with my results. He was able to be personable and professional....I felt like I was VERY informed from Dr. C. However, I wasn't given a very reliable risk of multiples 3+ based on procedures used (ICSI). I ended up with 3 fetus' from a 2 egg transfer and learned later that ICSI increases chances of embryo's splitting...
Clinic [DFW Fert Assoc ] was clean and everyone was extremely polite and nice. The Storage and embryologists are separate but the same owner for this clinic, so you know that there is a close working relationship between clinic and labs, which I found to be a HUGE bonus...Holly was amazing. She helped me in ways that a typical nurse would not...One "con" was the lack of empathy when, as a single mom by choice, I ended up conceiving triplets. This was SUPER scary to me and something that I felt I (financially) was unable to proceed with. When asking the clinic options and what to do next, I got a very negative "you knew the risks" response and "we can't help you."

Describe the protocols Samuel Chantilis used in your cycles at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
Dr. C said to do 3 IUIs initially. I tried one but it proved to be quite expensive because I required expensive medications to ovulate. I did one failed IUI before requesting to divert from his recommendation and moved directly to IVF. Dr. C was ok with this. We did one IVF cycle and he adjusted medication based on the productivity of my ovaries. He did recommend we go to Frozen with all embryos first due to the MASSIVE amount of eggs I produced that cycle. I was at first opposed to this, but was very grateful I did it. His rational was that A) the clinic had better success rates with FET Cycles over Fresh, and B) This allowed my ovaries to completely heal prior to attempting pregnancy thus increasing the chances of success.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates. (Assigned nurse: Holly)
Holly was amazing. She helped me in ways that a typical nurse would not. Offering suggestions of pharmacies and where I could get discounts by being a patient. She answered questions that I had that I didn't expect her to answer. She also was able to train really well and answer questions about how to administer drugs. She was extremely responsive to calls and questions outside of appointment times. One "con" was the lack of empathy when, as a single mom by choice, I ended up conceiving triplets. This was SUPER scary to me and something that I felt I (financially) was unable to proceed with.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.
Scans - covered by my insurance, so only paid co-pay ($40 per visit) IUI - $300 IUI - Lab fee - $150 IVF (to frozen, including 1 year of embryo storage & lab fees) $6300 ICSI - <=10: $1000, >10: $1800 PGS - $5000 for all eggs 1 year storage fees (after first year) - $600/year FET (with lab fees) $3000 Medication (not sold from clinic, but with Dr. Chantilis as your doctor, a 20% discount with the pharmacy they recommend)
Describe Samuel Chantilis's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.
My doctor strongly recommended transferring 1 embryo. I argued and won. I wanted to put in 2 eggs. Based on my own analysis of success vs. $, I chose to put in 2. Both were successful and I began my pregnancy with triplets. I eventually gave birth to twins after a elective reduction. I'm sure in the future Dr. C will push harder for eSET for younger mothers (I was 32 at the time).
What specific things went wrong at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.
I was never told that the use of the ICSI procedure increased chances of splitting embryo. I later learned after it happened to me, that any break of the embryo "shell" in a non-natural manner increased the odds of splitting by upwards of 33%. I wish I had known that prior to deciding how many eggs to transfer. I felt this information was critical.

Dr. Chantilis is a kind, compassionate, more reserved man that pays extremely close attention to detail. He is VERY professional, while also demonstrating compassion. He makes the patient feel safe, assured, and personally treated. I appreciate that he takes the time to really understand the couple and every aspect he can get his hands on to help find an issue. He also did not shove us toward IVF and encouraged us to try on our own for a while (after he cleaned up the endometriosis he found during my laparoscopy).
This clinic [Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates] is amazing, it is VERY popular so sometimes you may have to wait a little bit as Dr. Chantilis is very popular in the Dallas area for infertility..... Holly (which is also my name -so it's easy to remember) is the name of Dr Chantilis's nurse she is extremely kind, very detail oriented and has great relational skills. She is sweet while also making it clear she's there to help me get pregnant! She always calls the same day if I only go in for a sono/bloodwork with the results and she always provides a lot of detail so I don't even need to call her back.

He also did not shove us toward IVF and encouraged us to try on our own for a while (after he cleaned up the endometriosis he found during my laparoscopy). I also appreciated that after my laparoscopy he came out into the waiting room (while I was waking up) and chatted with my mom/husband with photos of all he had found. He explained the pictures to them and even joked with my mom which lightened the mood. Infertility is painful, uncharted, and scary, he brings his knowledge, sweet personality and funniness to the table which helps the process become more bearable. He also is not in it to see you pay him for IVF which I value EXTREMELY.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
Feel free to ask him questions, if he seems a little shy at first he will continue to warm up and be a little more silly and comfortable as you continue getting to know him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
Before seeing Dr. Chantilis, I saw Dr. Gada at DFW Fertility Assoc. Southlake. Dr Gada was fine, but seemed to really be pushing us toward IVF. He (Gada) determined I did not need a laparoscopy done and instead proceeded to do IUI's. Both IUI's failed, after that I decided I wanted another opinion. In our FIRST meeting, Dr. Chantilis was MUCH more thorough, and said I don't want to say you need surgery, but you have every symptom of endometriosis. We did surgery, he was right, they found it in 12 places and also discovered my left ovary was attached to my abdominal wall. Dr. Chantilis took the time to really investigate my case, not shove me toward IVF.
Describe the protocols Samuel Chantilis used in your cycles at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
Thus far, all we have done is laparoscopy (Jan 2017) and they tracked my last ovulation cycle because my periods were short so they wanted to make sure I was ovulating. I appreciate that even though I had surgery, instead of saying or your body is just adjusting, they tracked my ovulation with ultrasounds/sonos and did a progesterone blood test to be sure everything was working. HOPEFULLY we get pregnant over the next few months on our own now that my body is regulating!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates. (Assigned nurse: Holly)
Holly (which is also my name -so it's easy to remember) is the name of Dr Chantilis's nurse she is extremely kind, very detail oriented and has great relational skills. She is sweet while also making it clear she's there to help me get pregnant! She always calls the same day if I only go in for a sono/bloodwork with the results and she always provides a lot of detail so I don't even need to call her back.
Describe your experience with Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.
This clinic is amazing, it is VERY popular so sometimes you may have to wait a little bit as Dr. Chantilis is very popular in the Dallas area for infertility. I heard before I went to see him that people say he could "get a rock pregnant" - which was funny to me but I appreciated that they had such confidence in him. Since he is good at what he does sometimes the waiting room is packed!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.
All of my ultrasounds have been covered, I have had to pay the co-pay (it's $40 since he's a specialist). The surgery was pretty pricey (Laparoscopy) had to pay $1,000 to Dr. Chantilis and then much more to the hospital/anesthesiologist.

I loved being a patient of Dr. Chantilis. He’s a bit quirky, but loved that about him. He was very honest about our chances in conceiving, but still made us feel at ease.... I felt like I was apart of the entire process. He put everything that was about to unfold into terms I could understand and genuinely wanted my feedback. He knew my anxiety was high and he continually made me feel at ease. He was kind, but blunt. I respected that.
They [Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates] were organized, kind, and explained every step of the IVF process. Payment process was not explained well. If you had insurance coverage wasn’t explained 100% either. I did know what my final cost would be....[Cost Of Treatment] After insurance about 4000.00...[Nursing Staff] They were kind, and answered questions when I was panicking. They really wanted success for me and were compassionate.
How was your experience with Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
I loved being a patient of Dr. Chantilis. He’s a bit quirky, but loved that about him. He was very honest about our chances in conceiving, but still made us feel at ease. He did run a little behind schedule on our transfer day, but still eased my anxiety. He was positive through the whole process. We got the results we were hoping for and are hoping to return to him next April (2019) for our last embryo transfer. We only had two perfect embryos and so we are hoping for the same results. I would trust Dr. Chantilis with my life. He’s an amazing doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Samuel Chantilis at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
Go in with an open mind. He has a quirky bedside manor but is different when you meet with him for results. If you can’t handle brutal honesty he probably not a doctor you should see as he doesn’t sugar coat things. If he feels he can’t handle you due to weight, severity of issues present etc. he will let you know. He wants what’s best for you and will do his best to keep you from a high risk situation.

Our every concern was addressed. He [Dr. Chantillis] was very honest with us at every step. He had great doctor recommendations when we needed it. ... As my cycle progressed, we realized I would need to use injectables (after another quick consult with him) and we had to skip the IUI procedure on the first month. ... Be very honest in your conversations with Dr. Chantilis. He is great to work with and will give you very frank advice.
The staff [DFW Fertility Assoc] was amazing. They were organized and always super nice. All the doctors in the clinic were great to work with. We had to come in on the weekends a lot so saw many of the doctors as they rotated on call. ... We absolutely loved nurse Holly. ... She was patient and answered all of our questions no matter how silly they were. When we would get our negative pregnancy tests, she was always motivating.

Describe the protocols Samuel Chantilis used in your cycles at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
I was on clomid, metformin, and injectables. We first started with climid and metformin based on my initial tests. As my cycle progressed, we realized I would need to use injectables (after another quick consult with him) and we had to skip the IUI procedure on the first month. The next go around I was taking both pills and injectables and were able to go through the IUI procedure. We had a negative pregnancy test. We had decided early on that our fertility issues allowed us to give IUI a try. He warned us on the low success rates but that it was non-evasive and with our age and issues, it was worth a try. We agreed to 3 tries before moving onto IVF, if needed. The third month we had to skip altogether due to some issues that I can't remember now. The fourth month we had to convert to the natural way as we were traveling. We also received a negative pregnancy test. The fifth month, we were able to successfully go through the IUI procedure and we got a positive pregnancy test.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates. (Assigned nurse: Nurse Holly Wormack)
We absolutely loved nurse Holly. We bugged her with a million questions and she never once got annoyed with us. She was patient and answered all of our questions no matter how silly they were. When we would get our negative pregnancy tests, she was always motivating. She even had a good recommendation for me when I had a birthday party to attend but needed to give myself a fertility shot. She was absolutely amazing!

Dr Chantilis was very good. He was honest and candid about treatments. The staff were also very warm and welcoming...Be honest with your objectives and expectations. He is willing to be as aggressive as you want in treatments but he is also willing to slow things down if you need a break. We started with monitored clomid cycles. They were unsuccessful so we then changed to injections of fsh and iui which was one cycle and was unsuccessful. He then suggested hsg to see if there were any blockages in Fallopian tubes. The next month we tried letrezole and fsh injections with IUI because the clomid alone and fsh alone had failed. This time I had too many eggs for the IUI so dr Chantilis switched it to a IVF where they would retrieve eggs and do an embryo transfer. It resulted in a successful twin pregnancy

Medications were costly but I was given samples a few times as I was a cash patient. They also gave me discounts every cycle because I was a cash patient. They also have a standard cost for types of cycles and do not break down per visit for example it was a set amount for IUI excluding meds, but it would include all the scans and labs

Absolutely loved him and will use him again for any necessary future fertility treatments... Personality can be a bit odd (think a quirky professor) but he is so smart and a fantastic doctor.
Chandler [nurse at DFW Fertility Associates] seemed to be a bit standoffish when I first met her but when she found out how nervous and anxious I was she was great. She was super helpful and always went above and beyond to answer my questions/ease my mind. She was so sweet when she called to give my positive pregnancy test results too. Loved her!

[Dr Samuel] Chantilis kept us well informed and explained the procedures and the reasonings of why he recommended what he did. He did not sugar coat the process or the possible outcomes.
Due to my age, we tried fertility pills and IUI. the first IUI [at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates] was successful but ended up being a possible tubal pregnancy. After 2 additional failed IUI's Chantilis suggested IVF in order to get the best quality eggs possible. We implanted 3, had 2 taken but lost on along the way. Ended up with a beautiful healthy baby boy...I think after all was said and done we paid 20-30K for 3IUI and 1 IVF treatment

Dr. Chantilis has such a calm, sweet, disposition. It was so refreshing after the hell I had gone through with two unsuccessful cycles with Brian Barnett. He spoke to me like a human being and made us understand that we would probably never succeed with our own eggs and suggested donor eggs.
