Dr. Padilla is always pleasant. He greets my husband and I with a smile and sometimes throws in a joke or two. He's very gentle with the procedures and is always sure to tell me what will happen during and after procedures, blood work, etc....Dr. Padilla will answer any question you ask and won't seem like you're bothering him. I believe that he wants you to be comfortable with every part of your plan....I used clomid and and ovidrel to trigger. I have low progesterone levels so I have to use progesterone suppositories starting the day of insemination until I get a negative test or until many weeks after achieved pregnancy.

[Dr Santiago Padilla] gave me candid feedback on whether I should or shouldn't try them. When I needed services he couldn't provide, he referred me to an excellent clinic. The new clinic was over an hour away, and Dr. Padilla let me continue with bloodwork and routine ultrasound at his office. He continued to take the time to say hello, check in and answer questions even when I was no longer his patient.
