When I had my consult with Dr Sundheimer I was very nervous. She really took the time with me to understand my results and what I should do to preserve my fertility. I had unexpected news that my reserve was low, and decided after talking with Dr Sundheimer to go forward with egg freezing. She always gave me updates throughout the entire process and made me feel very cared for. She was easy to talk to even with something that is so personal.She [Dr. Sundheimer] even retrieved a couple more [eggs] than anticipated. I was very happy about that...She always took the time to explain things to me in terms that I could understand...
The Torrance office [of Southern California Reproductive Center] is very personable...She [nurse] was very quick to get back to my questions (by both phone or email) or other needs. She was friendly at every visit and was easy to communicate with throughout this process. She gave me timely updates on what I would need to continue with my egg freezing cycle...Both Dr Sundheimer and her nurse take the time to get to know you and explain things in detail. I felt very comfortable at each visit and there was little to no wait time as well.

Describe the protocols Lauren Sundheimer used in your cycles at Southern California Reproductive Center and their degree of success.
Dr Sundheimer had me on birth control pills to start for only a short period of time. Then I took injection medication to help my follicles grow into mature eggs. I took these injections for 12 days and then I had my eggs retrieved. She even retrieved a couple more than anticipated. I was very happy about that.

Dr. Sundheimer is very sweet, kind, and positive. I always knew what was coming next and had she gave me lots of hope. She expressed empathy very sincerely and I felt like we were in this together. It was very easy to relate to her...We all agreed eSET was best for my situation... was very willing to explain things as scientifically or as layperson as I wanted. Often times we'd go over the same question in several different ways. She was patient and kind. She seemed genuinely excited when I got pregnant, and was very kind to follow up with me when I delivered.
Christy [nurse at Southern California Reproductive Center] was very bubbly and friendly and clearly knew her stuff!...The Torrance office is quite small and personal. There is plenty of parking and it feels very cozy. The Beverly Hills lab and surgery center is a well oiled machine! They clearly take pride in what they do...Dr. Sundheimer was very willing to explain things as scientifically or as layperson as I wanted.
