“Dr. DeUgarte and her staff were kind and patient throughout the whole process and continued to carefully monitor me throughout the first 12 weeks of my pregnancy. Even after we were released to my OBGYN, she continued to call and check in. I have sent many women to her office; some have flown across the country just to see her. ALL of them have been astounded by the personal care and attention she has offered them. Other clinics treat their patients like part of an assembly line. The exact opposite is found with Dr. DeUgarte. I truly believe that Dr. Catherine DeUgarte was an integral part of our emotional healing and without her we would not have our baby boy. We will never forget her. She is a rare and special physician.”
“I cannot say enough about Dr. DeUgarte. My husband and I found her after we lost our first baby girl due to a premature delivery. Not only were we struggling to conceive again, but we were also still grieving and looking for answers. Dr. DeUgarte spent large amounts of time combing through hospital records and test results to help prevent another tragic loss. She then held our hands every step of the way by offering personal attention that is extremely rare in medical facilities these days, especially fertility clinics. Our son was conceived through IVF and he is now 3 years old.”
“Dr. DeUgarte is amazing. When my wife and I first came here, we were, understandably, very nervous about this whole process. I have to say; I can’t imagine being treated in a better way. In fact, because of the amazing way we felt here, we actually changed obstetricians and went on a hunt to find someone who would make us feel as safe, secure, and just a part of the family as she made us feel.”
“When you’ve got all of these things going on, then there are two things that make the difference: 1) the doctor you see each week who holds your hand through the process, and 2) the staff you’ve got to deal with on a daily basis. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing these were. We never felt like we were “just a patient” with Dr. D. We felt like she was someone who would be our new best friend. She was friendly, loving, kind, and generous with her time, and when we actually got knocked up (with twins!) even more generous with her sonogram machine. We saw our twins for the first time in her office, and saw them move for the first time there too.
It was very sad for us to leave, and was a very emotional experience. Also, Amber, one of the nurses there, is the most awesome person in the world. When Dr. D wasn’t holding our hand, she was, and her cheerful, bubbly personality left us walking out laughing, with a smile on our face . Last, just to give you a sense of everything, we’re in our 18th week, and Dr. D called us just a few days ago to ask us how we were doing. I’m sure I’ve gushed a lot, but it’s not possible to over-gush with her. If you’re having fertility problems, and need a doctor, this is the place to go.”
