DFW Fertility Associates is a leading provider of fertility treatment in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, providing all aspects of fertility care, ranging from ovulation induction to assisted reproductive technology. The practice was founded in 1999 when Dr. Samuel Chantilis ventured into private practice after serving as faculty at UT Southwestern Medical School.

The practice has grown through the years and has expanded to accommodate six physicians with four physician locations. The office on Glen Lakes Drive near THR Presbyterian Dallas is located next to a state-of-the-art IVF laboratory that opened in 2010, and the practice acquired a second IVF laboratory in 2021. The IVF laboratory is affiliated with the first commercial egg bank in the country, serving as a production center for My Egg Bank, and has vast experience and success with egg freezing. Vitrification services and day-five blastocyst biopsy for preimplantation genetic testing are now routinely conducted alongside many other advanced technologies. DFW Fertility Associates has one of the largest egg donation programs in Texas and is known for its success with third-party (gestation surrogacy) arrangements. While DFW Fertility Associates’ success rates have consistently shown excellence, many patients achieve their goal of a family with more conservative options.

Drs. Sam Chantilis, Karen Lee, Mika Thomas, Ravi Gada, Laura Lawrence, Jennifer Shannon, and Monica Chung recognize facing infertility can exact a huge toll emotionally, physically, and sometimes financially. In January 2021, DFW Fertility Associates acquired a second IVF laboratory located at the THR Presbyterian Hospital of Plano, and the practice opened another clinic location on the same campus in Medical Office Building II to better serve the community. Recently, the practice opened an office at Baylor University Medical Center downtown in the Baylor Plaza building.  DFW Fertility Associates maintains offices in Dallas near THR Presbyterian Dallas, Medical City, Southlake, THR Presbyterian Plano, and Baylor downtown. Dr. Chantilis completed his medical degree and fellowship at UT Southwestern Medical School. Dr. Lee received her medical degree at Harvard Medical School and completed her fellowship at Duke University. Dr. Thomas received her medical degree at UT San Antonio and completed her fellowship at the University of Iowa. Dr. Gada attended Texas Tech University School of Medicine and completed his fellowship at the Mayo Clinic. Dr. Lawrence received her medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine and completed her fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis. Dr. Shannon received her medical degree from University of Minnesota Medical School and completed her fellowship at UT Southwestern Medical School. Dr. Chung received her medical degree from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and completed her fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

Their mission is to provide personal attention to each person visiting the clinic to provide customized care. The entire staff combines experience, technology, and advanced training to address infertility, always mindful to treat you with kindness along the journey.
