Fertility Treatment Patient Testimonial
Real success stories from our patients
Tomiko & Chris
“Our doctor was Dr. Guy Ringler and he was amazing. After having children in my early 20’s I divorced and remarried in my mid 30’s. I was unable to get pregnant during my 9 years of dating my husband, so we chose to have fertility treatment. Dr. Ringler was recommended by a friend who had success at California Fertility Partners in WLA. Dr. Ringler took the conservative route initially, and then when we were not successful we had IVF. We were successful in fertilizing 5 embryos and delivered twins in 2005. Although the pregnancy was complicated I have 2 beautiful boys as a result. The office staff was understanding, patient, and I wouldn’t change any of it.”
“I saw Dr. Guy Ringler in 2012 for my IVF transfer as a surrogate. He was fantastic in explaining the whole process so I could understand what was happening with my body. We ended up getting pregnant on the first try with one stellar embryo and baby girl will be 11 months old tomorrow!!!”
“When you’re the best, it can be difficult to see everyone. We had the good fortune to be recommended to Dr. Richard Marrs from our local OB. Prior to meeting Dr. Marrs we had spent 1 year seeing a local fertility doctor without any success, and 2 years seeing a highly recommended doctor in Santa Barbara which resulted, in the end, with a recommendation for a surrogate based pregnancy. Disheartened and demoralized we told our story to my wife’s OB and he told us with our permission he would call a friend and see if he could see us. Fortunately for us after a few months of recovering from our prior news we asked for the recommendation, not realizing who his friend in LA was.
Our first meeting with Dr. Richard Marrs went better than we expected. He told my wife, “I know what is wrong, I see more of these difficult cases than anyone else because they are referred to us and we can get you pregnant”. After an intensive hormone treatment we became pregnant our first time without using IVF. We had difficulties with keeping the child, and over the next 4 years Dr. Marrs helped us figure out why keeping a pregnancy to term was not working for us. Dr. Marrs never gave up on us, and never let us become discouraged. And realize, we traveled 3.5 hours each way almost every week for 4 years to Santa Monica to see him because of his projected confidence we would be successful.
Today we have two healthy happy well adjusted boys, 3 and 6 years old without ever using IVF. We cannot express how deeply indebted we are to Dr. Marrs and the other great doctors and nurses at California Fertility Partners who supported us when we were down, and cheered with us when we reached a new success. Without them we would not be a family.”
“We chose Dr. Guy Ringler after interviewing a few other fertility physicians. We couldn’t be happier with our choice. Dr. Ringler has been extremely professional and patient with us, guiding us through the process and answering all of our questions in a very timely manner. Monica, Dr. Ringler’s nurse coordinator, was amazing and went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly.
We got pregnant on our first IVF cycle and are grateful for the excellent service and top notch care that we were provided by Dr. Ringler and his team.”
“We are parents today because of Dr. Kelly Baek. Overall, we had an incredible experience with Dr. Baek at California Fertility Partners. She was extremely thorough and diagnostic in our treatment. Before coming to CFP, we had been treated by two other infertility doctors. Both did not detect some key issues. Dr. Baek uncovered these issues and resolved them. Due to Dr. Baek’s methodical approach, we welcomed our first child this year.
Throughout all of our treatments Dr. Baek was straightforward. She never sugar coated our situation but was appropriately reassuring – which made our struggle more bearable. At the end of the day, she did a great job of managing our expectations in a very stressful and emotional process. She is extremely dedicated and it came through in all our interactions. We never once felt like she was approaching this as a business. We are extremely grateful and lucky to have Dr. Baek as our doctor.
To note, the office staff is extremely professional, patient and responsive. All of the nurses I worked with were very knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating.”
“I decided to go to Dr. Guy Ringler after also interviewing a well known fertility doctor in Beverly Hills which I did not get a good feeling from. The process of getting pregnant was not short and easy. I underwent surgery for a uterine septum and did two IUI’s, but he proved to be excellent at what he does and a master at doing transfers without having me have a full bladder which is so nice.
I got pregnant with my first IVF and unfortunately lost the pregnancy early on. Fortunately we got pregnant again on the second try and now have a beautiful 2 month old little boy. I am so grateful to him and nurse Martha for helping me achieve my dream.”
“We are forever grateful for the expertise of Dr. Richard Marrs and the professional staff. After an initial consultation with another doctor in our Orange County area, I was told my tubes were not viable. Before delving into IVF I had an instinct we should get a second opinion. We then scheduled with Dr. Marrs and made the drive to LA after I learned that three of my husband’s friends wives had children because of Dr. Marrs. We felt immediately at ease and confident in our choice of Dr. Marrs, who not only told me my tubes were indeed viable but wanted to take the step by step conservative path to conception. The many drives to LA were worth the professionalism and top notch facility. They have a lab on site whereas other offices require you to go off site. Since the cycle never stops and timing ovulation is everything, they are open every day, now that’s commitment! They were there every necessary moment and after IUI #2 we have a healthy baby boy on the way. We wish we could stay in the care of Dr. Marrs through the whole term, he was wonderful. We are incredibly grateful and cannot say enough about our positive experience. Highly recommend this world class facility.”
