During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Christie at IVF Florida?
While under the care of Dr. Christie, he truly treated me like a person, he went beyond the "white coat" and provided me comfort and knowledge during a very difficult time. The expectation of our consultation was hard to ingest as he explained the number of complications impacting my potential to conceive, including the need to remove my fallopian tubes in order to conceive. His post- operative follow up was impeccable. As I slowly woke up, tears in my eyes, reality kicked in as I realized I no longer had my fallopian tube. My first words, "I need to talk to my doctor". As Dr. Christie spoke to me and reassured me everything will be okay, he stayed on the phone until I stopped crying. Until this day, I still tear up from this profound moment, it was my reality, I was no longer a woman. Dr. Christie, reminded me of our discussion and that "we are in this together." Not only did he treat me like a human, he treated me like family.

Considering the number of setbacks I experience due to my health status and having to undergo surgery, I was highly discourage and unmotivated to conceive after almost a year of interferon therapy.
