The new offices have six exam rooms each equipped with a sonogram machine and secondary monitor mounted on the wall for patients to view, and six nursing and physician consultation rooms.
Dallas Fertility Center was opened in an effort to bring the latest IVF treatments and procedures to the Dallas-Fort Worth community. Our new IVF Laboratory operates under the scientific direction of Dr. Oscar Perez, one of the world’s most renowned IVF Laboratory Directors. In fact, when the Presbyterian Hospital IVF (ARTS) Program was named one of the “10 Best Fertility Centers” in the nation by Child Magazine in August 2005. Dallas Fertility Center is a separate business entity that is associated with DFW Fertility Associates.
Drs. Chantilis, Lee and Thomas are board-certified in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, as well as obstetrics and gynecology. Please review our infertility specialists’ biographies for a complete description of their training, awards and accomplishments.
Dr. Chantilis founded what is now Dallas – Fort Worth Fertility Associates in January of 1999 after five and a half years in academic medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Dr. Lee joined Dr. Chantilis in the Dallas office in August 2005 and due to their practice’s growth and success, they added a third physician, Dr. Thomas, in September 2009.
At DFW Fertility Associates, we recognize that facing infertility can exact a huge toll emotionally and physically, and in some cases, financially. With that in mind, we are dedicated to providing high quality medical care in a sensitive, caring and safe environment. We work with our patients to help control infertility treatment costs, always offering the procedure most likely to succeed. Our center offers a full range of fertility services, including ovulation induction with medications, IUI (intrauterine insemination), IVF (in vitro fertilization), ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), PGD (preimplantation genetic diagnosis) and other assisted reproductive technologies.
Additionally, we participate in third-party assisted reproductive technologies including egg and sperm donation, and gestational carrier cycles. Dallas – Forth Worth Fertility Associates has a successful egg donation program that offers an “in-house” egg donor agency for the convenience of our patients, and we welcome designated or outside agency egg donors as well. Dr. Chantilis has considerable experience with egg donation having conducted over 500 cycles during his career.
