Jennifer Testimonial

I wanted to take a moment and thank the FIRM for helping me through some of the most difficult times in my life. This is going to be long so bear with me!

I was born with a septate uterus which has caused multiple losses throughout the years.  I came to Dr. Duffy with little hope, I honestly thought I would never be able to carry a pregnancy to term. I had been to fertility specialists in the past, but no one had ever made me feel 100% comfortable…until I met Dr. Duffy. It hasn’t been the easiest year for me, I had many bumps in the road, but Dr. Duffy held my hand every step of the way. When one thing failed he always had a backup plan and a different approach to fixing my problem.  Yesterday was one of the best days of my life because he finally fixed my problem and I am now able to stay pregnant. Words will never explain how grateful I am for him coming into my life. I would recommend Dr. Duffy to anyone looking for a miracle, especially those who have a septate uterus or other uterine anomalies.

I also wanted to say thank you to Allyson, you have been such a cheerleader for me and words cannot explain how grateful I am for everything you have done for me. You truly are such a selfless person and the world needs more people like you. I think you were just as happy as I was about my successful surgery! Thank you for always being there to answer my questions and to calm me down when I needed it.

A Caring Doctor and Staff

Dear Dr. Winslow,

We would like to start out by thanking you for being a wonderful doctor. In a time when couples are beaten down, disappointed, and at times feel hopeless you are a sign of hope. The first time we walked into your office, not knowing what to expect, we were greeted by a wonderful staff of smiling faces and sweet words. As we met you hope of becoming parents started to return and by the time we were having our first IUI done we felt as if you were a blessing from God himself. A few weeks later we were so excited to learn that we were pregnant and a few months later devastated at the loss of a much anticipated baby. When we returned to repeat the process you were so kind and hopeful that it would happen for us again and it did. We prayed for those 3 years for a sign and blessing and little did we know that you were a part of that plan. You have been given a gift and you use it to bless other couples with precious babies they thought would never be a part of their lives. The Lord uses you in a miraculous way. You take time to make every patient feel comfortable and valued. Most doctors would have done the procedures and not taken the time to get to know the patient, you don’t. We thank Him for leading us to you and every day when I look at our Miracle baby boy I think of how wonderful our experience was at your clinic through the ups and downs. God is working through you and all of the wonderful people at the FIRM. We will definitely return when we are planning on baby number 2. Parenthood is a dream come true and a gift we don’t take for granted. Thanks for helping our dreams come true!

Truly Blessed,

The Johnsons

People Who Can Help

Just put my twin baby girls to bed and finished saying our nightly thank you prayers!  My Mom always taught me as a little girl that’ “God makes people who can help you” and that “whatever you truly believe with all of you heart you shall receive” (Mark 11:24). The FIRM is such a testimony to this passage. Because Dr. Winslow and staff at FIRM I get to kiss my sweet girls every night and reaffirm that God answers prayers and perseverance! Thank you FIRM for your endless hours of experience, patience, and unconditional guidance!!!

Blessed,

Cheerleader of da Vinci Robotic Surgery

From the age of 15, when I started my period, I always had difficult menstruation. I remember I had to miss school at that time of the month, but I always thought it was a common problem and nothing I could do anything about. After I got married (right from the beginning) my husband and I wanted to have a kid. We tried for a couple of years, and after five years we finally went to a doctor to check us. We saw Dr. Kevin Winslow from Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine, and during my ultrasound he saw a huge fibroid and immediately recommended I get rid of them because of the potential risks associated with getting pregnant with such a huge mass in my uterus.

He told me that he specialized in da Vinci robotic surgery. This is the first time I learned about this type of surgery, and I did extensive research online and came to know all about this surgery. I was absolutely certain that this was the end of my difficult journey of womanhood and I would be reborn with a pain-free and time to experience motherhood.

Dr. Duffy consulted with me about 2 hours and explained my condition with lots of empathy and care; he suggested the best and most recent cutting edge medical procedures: da Vinci robot-assisted myomectomy to get rid of my fibroid and endoscopy to look inside my uterus to see whether everything is working right or not. As a nursing student myself, I was delighted to find such a wonderful and knowledgeable doctor who is every patient’s dream come true.

I had my surgery on Friday around noon and went home about 10 o’clock the same night. To my disbelief, I never even felt any major pain, nausea or even any minor aches or headache. I had my prescription of pain medication but only took it the next three days to get rid of some minor cramps and limitation of movement and overall to sleep quietly. From day 4, I walked normally and started driving on day 5, went back to school on day 10 of my post-operative period.

I literally had more difficulties during my menstruation cycle than during and after my surgery. Today I am at 2 weeks post-operative period, and I have regained my full strength and am looking forward to getting pregnant soon.

I am recommending all the women of Jacksonville, Florida and the entire country who are suffering from the similar conditions and need surgical interventions to please consider and research da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery and visit the Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine to see the most amazing, caring and wonderful Dr. Daniel Duffy. He will change your entire idea and concept about having surgery and walking away with a pain-free, less invasive and fastest recovery surgical experience like mine. I am now the biggest and happiest cheerleader of da Vinci robotic surgery and Dr. Daniel Duffy and his firm. Thank you Dr. Duffy, and I wish you all the best!!!

Dreams have come true!

As a little girl, I had always dreamt of being a mother.  My husband and I tried to conceive for months and with no success we decided to seek help at The Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.  We met with Dr. Winslow and, at our first visit, he diagnosed me with polycystic ovarian syndrome.  He immediately devised a treatment plan and we began our journey to parenthood.  After completing an IVF cycle, we learned we were pregnant.  Not only were we ecstatic to learn we were pregnant with a child, we became even more joy filled when we discovered we were having twins.  We are so blessed to have our son and daughter who are now 2 ½ years old.  From our first appointment to our last ultrasound with Dr. Winslow and his staff, we were always treated with respect and compassion.  We owe our wonderful and complete life to Dr. Winslow.  He not only made our dreams come true but gave our life more meaning and happiness than we could have ever hoped for.

Forever Grateful,

The Timoneres
