Letter from a patient: Not only one of the best gifts

Posted on Jun 06, 2017

170600letter1 CHR has not only given me one of the best gifts but two!

As a young newlywed diagnosed with DOR, learning how to navigate the world of infertility could have been difficult and lonely, but at CHR I developed a family. I had been to two other fertility centers previously and both clinics were not a right fit for me. I had my initial consultation with Dr. Gleicher. He listened with a kind ear, took his time going through my chart and asked me numerous questions so that he can pinpoint my exact issues and the best way to overcome them.

We started right away with additional blood work and I started taking DHEA and Coq10 . After meeting with Dr. Gleicher I met the nurses, who always get back to you right away, and with the option of emailing them, it's even quicker. They answer all your questions with the utmost patience and never make you feel belittled for asking what may seem like a "dumb" question, or the same question a few times.

170600letter2 Through my course of treatments I felt like I had the entire CHR rooting for me. When i got pregnant with both my current child and the baby i am expecting now, every staff member who I saw was thrilled for me. When I did experience some road blocks getting to those points, they were there for me and sympathized with me. The doctors, like the nurses, care about each and every patient they see. They want the best for everyone. You are not just another faceless person in a waiting area that seems like a factory.

No other doctor I had seen before going to CHR was able to get me pregnant once, and here I am carrying my second child. I was told many times before coming to CHR that I would never get pregnant with my own eggs. Well, CHR proved all those other people wrong and I could not be more happy or thankful!
