As one of Queensland’s most experienced fertility specialists, Dr John Esler has one aim – to help patients achieve their dream of starting or adding to their family.

Dr Esler is focused on providing expert treatment by incorporating latest evidence-based, best practice techniques and science to ensure patients have the highest chance of achieving a successful pregnancy. With success rates well above the national average, he ensures patients are spared from the stress and expense of undergoing unnecessary cycles.

Dr Esler offers a comprehensive range of fertility services including options for the simplest of problems, through to the most complex fertility issues.

Experience & Qualifications

Dr Esler graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery in 1975. He has been a fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists since 1985 and is a member of the Fertility Society of Australia.

Dr Esler established the Toowoomba Fertility Clinic in 1996. This service later became the Queensland Fertility Group (QFG) Toowoomba Clinic which was the first practice in Australia to obtain the reputable ISO:9001 accredited certification.

Dr Esler’s reputation for pursuing excellence is well known in IVF circles. He is widely regarded as a pioneer in ‘day five freeze-all’ cycles, which includes the use of agonist triggers that eliminate the risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). His pioneering techniques eliminated OHSS, and his Toowoomba clinic was the first OHSS free clinic in Australia.

Dr Esler’s extensive experience in ‘freeze-all’ cycles has been recognised with the publication of an international journal article he co-authored titled ‘Should we still perform fresh embryo transfers in ART?’ which was published in 2019 in the prestigious medical journal, Human Reproduction.

Additional Information

It is important for any patient considering fertility treatment to have a thorough medical investigation to identify any underlying problem affecting their fertility.  

It is Dr Esler’s policy to genetically test all new patients to identify if any chromosomal abnormalities are present.  Once the investigation is complete, Dr Esler will recommend the most suitable treatments that meet patient needs.
