How was your experience with Carlos Sueldo at Women's Specialty & Fertility Center?
Dr. Sueldo is the perfect doctor for me. He takes the time I need to explain all the options for my treatment. He did all my ultrasounds, the egg retrieval, and two tranfers and was able to share next steps when things didn’t go a planned. He’s a calm and thoughtful man who wants each of his clients to have success. When I was struggling with bleeding while I was pregnant, he rearranged his schedule to make sure I was seen in the office by him. When it turned out I was having a miscarriage he was the one to do a D&C on me. My husband feels comfortable with Dr. Sueldo and trusts his judgment. With all my heartache through this process Dr. Sueldo has helped me see the light that a baby is possible.

Dr. Sueldo suggest that because of my age, 36, that I could do one or two embryo transfers. My husband and I chose to transfer two embryos on two different ocassions. We’re still waiting for a successful full term pregnancy. I haven’t made it out of the first trimester.
