My husband and I met with 3 fertility Dr.’s and “Dr. J” was by far the best. He cares about his patients over the money, and it shows. He has met with us on a Holiday, a Sunday, at 7 AM for an IUI, a personal phone call at 8 PM to make sure I got my trigger shot on time. He greets you with a smile and a hug or handshake. Talk to you like a person, not a scientific statistic. He was patient with me when I had a painful procedure. Always returned my calls or emails to answer this anxious patient’s questions.Carrie H., Long Beach, CA
Throughout the long journey Dr. J. was empathetic, willing to answer questions and supportive. I was always impressed with how much he knew about his field and genetics in general, but if we had a suggestion or idea of something we wanted to try, he was open to that as well. Because of how my condition affected my ovaries the retrieval process was pretty difficult, but Dr. J. constantly adapted our protocol to try and maximize our results. Once we finally got a Fragile X free embryo, the implantation was successful on the first try (due to his skill).Genevive P., Studio City, CA
