Hear what our patients have to say about SCRC and our staff...
Dear Dr. Surrey,
How can we possibly thank you for helping to make our dreams come true? Little is everything we ever wanted, and more. Thank you so much for all your care, support and expertise. You and your staff are truly wonderful! We're looking forward to working with you on Baby #2.
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!
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.
Dear Dr. Danzer
Markus & I had a beautiful baby boy on Dec. 19, 2011. Thank you so much for this amazing gift. You are an Angel.
Dear Dr. Chang,
Our deepest thanks for the biggest gift anyone could ever give us! And thank you for your thoughtful, detailed responses to my many questions. I truly appreciate the opportunity to work with you and we will always remember this special moment and what an extraordinary part you played in it.
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!
Dear Dr. Ghadir,
While this letter is very long overdue, the sentiments Ryan and I have for all you have done for us remain the same. We cannot thank you enough for helping us get pregnant - not with one, but two babies! When we started this journey, we didn't know what to expect. We were saddened by our struggles of not being able to create a baby on our own and at times felt desperate that it may not happen. At the same time, we were hopeful that you would be able to provide us the family we longed for. After meeting with you in our consultation visit, we found the optimism that this would happen for us. The process was definitely a lot more challenging than we expected, but your confidence in and dedication to getting us pregnant helped us make it through. We wouldn't be anxiously awaiting the arrival of our two boys were it not for you. We are forever grateful for what you have given us. There aren't words that could truly express the gratitude we have for you.
We also have to thank your entire staff for everything they did for us, especially Maria. She was amazing through this process. She was patient with all of our questions and provided the guidance and support I personally needed as we made our way through our fertility struggle. I have never had an experience at a doctor's office where I felt so genuinely cared for by everyone. It was bittersweet leaving the office for the last time because I knew that I would genuinely miss everyone there.
While we would never wish our experience on any couple, Ryan and I would have no hesitation in recommending you if we knew they were in need of fertility help. One of the most frustrating things for us going through infertility was the sheer fact that people don't talk about it and we didn't know why this was happening to us or what our options were. You were right there with us through the entire process and provided all of the guidance and information we needed in making the decisions of how we wanted to proceed with our journey. Infertility is a very personal thing and we felt completely comfortable being in your hands. We know you would treat all patients with the same respect and provide them with the same guidance and support you gave to us.
Thank you again for helping us achieve the family we always knew we were meant to have. While these babies are 50% me and 50% Ryan, you are still a very big part of their existence and that will never be forgotten.
Aubrey Morgan was was diagnosed with endometriosis and told by her doctor that she was infertile at age 20. Not willing to accept that fate, Aubrey visited fertility specialist, Mark Surrey, M.D., co-founder and medical director of Southern California Reproductive Center, where she found a compassionate doctor and staff who understood the problem, made her feel comfortable and safe and reassured her.
