I felt like Dr. Tarnawa listened to our needs and wants and didn’t question our decisions. He also gave us honest suggestions but gave us the ability to choose our treatment...He was easy to communicate with and easily accessible as well. We lived 2 hours from his office and felt that he respected our time given the travel we had to put into our treatment. He answered our questions and respected our decision to agressively pursue pregnancy.
