Dr. Erb Testimonial

I would like to give Dr. Erb some praise for helping us bring our bundle of joy into the world. Abbegale will be 7 months old tomorrow! Dr. Erb is considered part of the family. She has such a loving spirit and she’s all about her patients. We are so blessed to have her in our life and looking forward to bringing new life into the world, very soon. Thank you, Dr. Erb and we love you!

Dr. Henne Testimonial by April

My family and I will forever be grateful to Dr. Henne, who is everything you could want in a fertility practitioner. She reassured us with the science, comforted us with her wisdom, sympathized with us, and helped us find the joy/laughter with the process. I felt very relaxed in her care, which I firmly believe led to a great outcome. After two rounds of IUI, we are expecting our baby boy. Couldn’t be happier or more grateful for the work that she does.

Thank you, Dr. Henne.

Dr. Freeman Testimonial by H.F.

After a period of trying to conceive on our own with no positive results, we decided to reach out to the F.I.R.M. We were extremely happy with each doctor we met with but ultimately chose Dr. Freeman. We immediately felt at ease and in great hands with him. He was knowledgeable and informative about all options and procedures and welcomed all questions- and I had a TON!! Dr. Freeman was patient and kind when things weren’t moving along as quickly as we had hoped and kept us encouraged to continue treatment. Dr. Freeman truly cares about his patients and their outcomes. We were thrilled when he was able to give us the news that we were finally expecting! We will forever be grateful for Dr. Freeman, the nurses and staff for everything they did for us and their exceptional care. We highly recommend using Dr. Freeman!! H.F.

Dr. Goeben Testimonial by K.S.

We came to Dr. Sproul von Goeben after suffering a miscarriage and not being able to conceive a second child on our own. From the minute we met her, she was warm, nurturing, passionate and so knowledgeable. We knew immediately we were in great hands. She and her amazing nurse, Patty, were with us every step of our journey. What I loved the most, is that Dr. Sproul von Goeben had undergone IVF herself, and she could explain and really relate to what we were going through. She gave us her expert opinion on things, but stressed the decision was always ours. After two failed attempts, she recommended changing the protocol and that was so scary knowing it was our last chance – we had one embryo left to transfer. We trusted her with our future and did exactly what she recommended, and 9 months later we welcome a healthy baby boy. When it was time to “graduate” from FIRM to our OB/GYN, I felt like I was losing a good friend. Fast forward to the delivery of our son, we received a call from Dr. Sproul Von Goeben before we had even left the hospital. When I saw the number pop up, I cried tears of joy. Without her and the amazing doctors and nurses at FIRM, we wouldn’t be a family of four today. We took our new son to meet the woman responsible for his existence and we will cherish that moment forever. Thank you for being a literal miracle worker.

A.G. Testimonial

Dr. Winslow,
It is hard to put into words just how grateful I am to you and the entire staff at the FIRM. To say thank you just seems inadequate. I am now 13 weeks, and we are planning on telling our 5½-year-old daughter on Christmas that she gets to be a big sister! It is something that I have wanted for her for so long now, and it is still so surreal that our family is growing.

I never thought that my husband and I would struggle with infertility, let alone end up doing IVF. Although it was a total rollercoaster of emotions, you and your staff made the whole process easier and doable. Every single person who we came in contact with at the FIRM was professional and considerate. We always felt like our case was important and that I wasn’t just another patient.

Thank you for your patience, your guidance, and most of all for always being so kind and compassionate. God has certainly blessed you with a gift, and I count myself as lucky to have been your patient. You will forever hold a special place in my heart!

Thank you,
A.G.

We are so excited for our growing family thanks to you!

Many thanks,
A.S.
