Welcome From Wendy J. Schillings, MD, Director of Fertility Preservation
I am so excited to have joined forces to work with RADfertility’s great group of physicians! As a strong believer in personalized care, my goal is to work with patients or couples to educate them about fertility treatments and diagnoses so that they feel empowered to participate in their care.
As a high school student who knew that my future was in medicine, I became one of the few women members of the young physicians’ group! In college, I grew more interested in women’s issues and followed this passion into medical school, where I got involved in women’s health. Reproductive endocrinology was the perfect area of medicine to combine my surgical expertise along with the joy of creating and building families.
I joined RAD with over 25 years of experience in the field of reproductive medicine. For the first 10 years of my career, I helped patients grow their families while serving as a member of the teaching faculty for various medical schools. I then took that experience and ran a practice for over 10 years. As RAD’s Director of Fertility Preservation, I hope to help men and women from all walks of life if they are considering preserving their future fertility.
What I love about my career is seeing all the babies that we help create and all the wonderful families that we bring together. It’s really exciting when you see them years later and can reflect on how you’ve changed their lives. Everybody has their own story, and working with them to help them become a parent is a wonderful thing.

"We had a wonderful experience working with RADfertility. Our doctor was so sweet, informative and helpful with all of our questions. The front desk, it’s always nice to be greeted by a friendly smiling face."
"RAD heard my hopes, dreams, and wishes and led me toward them while holding my hand. My dream came true. I was guided to a beautiful baby girl! It took less than a year for my pregnancy to begin and it was successful. This was the best decision I ever made. Thank you, RAD!"
"From the beginning our team was determined to find a way for my husband and I to complete our family. All the RAD staff was knowledgeable and truly cared for us. We wish we could have continued with them after our baby hit 12 weeks. We thank them daily in our prayers for giving us our beautiful baby girl!"
"We will be forever grateful for the wonderful care we received at RAD! Dr. Feinberg took the time to listen and create a plan we were comfortable with. The whole team was amazing and truly care about their patients. You have exceeded our expectations. Thank you!!"
"Thanks to RADfertility, we have the most perfect addition to our family. The help and support the whole staff gave us was indescribable. We never once lost hope because of them. We will be forever grateful to each and every person we worked with during our journey."
"Dr. Neithardt was amazing. She explained in great detail all the options we had and put us at ease about the entire process. Everyone has been amazing and I have absolutely no complaints. Today I am 17 weeks pregnant and we only have Dr. Neithardt and her wonderful team at RAD to thank."
"They are the most amazing team of doctors and care coordinators. After having started at another facility I was so happy to come to RAD. They are truly amazing, never make you feel like just a number and have empathy and compassion every step of the way. They also get the job done! Thanks RAD!"
"Dr. McGuirk is a very holistic doctor. She doesn’t just treat the fertility issues. She also points out personal health ideas (juicing, whole 30) to help heal/treat the whole patient. She is honest and open. Be open minded and trust in her process. This is a marathon, not a sprint! Dr. McGuirk will be with you the whole way."
"I will never be able to put into words how thankful we are for RAD. Rhonda was there every step of the way as we were going through the process. Everyone was so welcoming and patient as we asked questions. We were blessed with a daughter, who is now three. I have already recommended and will continue to recommend RAD to people who need help growing their family!"
