Failed Cycles

“I have to thank Richard for all his help in order that our little girl could be with us.  He helped me so much throughout the treatment and during the nine months of pregnancy.  I only have good things to say about him and  of course when we decide to give a little brother to my daughter I will return to Richard for treatment from the very first day !!!”

High FSH

“I went to Richard´s office and from the moment I entered I felt comfortable. He asked about my health, my diet, my sleep and life-style.  I thought the needles would hurt but it’s just a light prick and talking with him it goes by quickly.  He left me alone for about half an hour with relaxing music and low lighting and I almost always fell asleep.”

~ T.G

Recurrent Miscarriages

“I will always think that Richard changed our lives. We arrived at his office desperate,  nervous and terribly anxious and he calmed us, helped us, advised us and guided us always in a way which was very professional while being warm and open at the same time.”
