Dr. Ghadir,

First and foremost, regardless of the outcome of this cycle...I just wanted you to know that I am extremely THANKFUL for the way you took good care of me this cycle! This journey has been a difficult one, however, I am 100% sure I have chosen the best doctor for me! It is always a joy to see you because you always have the "the jokes"...but above all you are extremely knowledegable and professional. Thank you for everything thus far, and I am sure one day I will come visit you with a bambino in a stroller!!

Dear Dr. Surrey and Staff,

We will be forever grateful to SCRC for having finally achieved our long sought-after dream. Having been through 3 other clinics, we walked into SCRC with quite a bit of trepidation. The entire staff treated us with professionalism, competency and compassion. Thank you for everything!

Forever in your debt,
Sonya and Mike

Dear Dr. Danzer,

Dr. Danzer and his incredible staff at Southern California Reproductive Center made the birth of our daughter possible. I was over 45 years old at the time my husband and I had our initial consultation with Dr. Danzer. I had never been pregnant, and had been using various methods of birth control for most of my adult life. After our consultation, I underwent numerous tests at SCRC. My husband and I had several very thoughtful discussions with Dr. Danzer concerning various physiological, medical, psychological, age and pregnancy-related issues and statistics, the condition of my health, and related moral issues. Those discussions included talking in-depth about IVF and possibly utilizing an egg donor. We ended up making an informed decision to proceed with the egg donor process.

Dr. Danzer referred us to a highly regarded egg donor agency. After much diligent work and follow-up on our part, we found our “perfect” donor. The kindness, care and attention we received from Dr. Danzer and his staff throughout the process was outstanding. My pregnancy went a few days shy of full term and we had a great birth. Our fantastic baby was incredibly healthy at birth and has thrived to become a fabulous and fun child.

We had a very positive outcome with the egg donor procedure due to the exceptional level of professionalism, clinical excellence and expertise of Dr. Danzer and his staff. Everyone was consistently kind and compassionate, providing soothing, nurturing comfort and support throughout the entire egg donor/IVF process. We were kept informed; Dr. Danzer and his staff were extremely responsive and our questions were always answered in a timely manner.

Choosing to use an egg donor to become pregnant was a profound, exciting and life altering experience for us. It is not for everyone. However, if years pass and pregnancy does not happen naturally, and if IVF fails repeatedly, I would strongly encourage couples to consider using an egg donor and working with Dr. Danzer and his fabulous team.



Dearest Dr. Ghadir,

It's hard to believe it's happening, but it feels more real every moment.  I think back on that day in June '09 when we walked into your office completely devastated and resigned to coming to terms with the fact we wouldn't be able to have the family we had dreamed of- even adoption, at the time was not a reality.  I don't think I ever told you this but on that day we really didn't want to come into your office.  We figured that unless you had a baby in the back, we didn't see any reason to be there.  We were out of money and hope.  Little did we know, in essence you DID have a "baby in the back"- 13 embryos to be donated.

You've been confident and strong from the beginning which has been an enormous source of strength for me though I've tried not to call upon it too much.   This science in helping couples have children seems more of an art to me.  You have to juggle so much at the same time.  Thank you for listening to me, taking my emotions seriously, reassuring me and not giving up on me or my body.  Even when I had given up, you still saw possibilities.  

I think you are brilliantly talented and I feel that you really care, which again helps me to feel strong and positive.  No matter what happens I want to tell you how much this opportunity means to Dave and me.  It's a chance, maybe even a long shot but at least we get to take it. 

I feel good and my body feels on board...on the same page.  When it comes time to do the transfer there is not one doctor in the world that I'd rather have by my side than you, Dr. Ghadir.  You're my Obi-Wan Kenobi! 

Thank you so much,
