Our work with hundreds of patients has given us many testimonials to share with readers. We are proud of our hard work and the relationships we build with each and every one of our patients. These testimonials remind us we come to work each day and yet do not feel like we are working. We very much appreciate the sentiment in these words. Our heartfelt thanks to those who took the time to share these words.
My wife and I were very happy
Dr. Opsahl was easy to work with and was always there for questions, he went the extra step to make it a pleasant process throughout. He also does a great job explaining things in laymen’s terms to help us understand what the things mean. We were at another fertility clinic and it seemed like we were just another number and it was just pushing us through the system. Dr. Opsahl on the other hand seemed to actually care, and put together a plan that suited my wife and my needs. He did not just say ‘ok were doing this process’ without talking to us about what our goal was.
He does a great job and I know that we have referred people to him and we will continue to do so. He continues to impress us.
He was extremely supportive and compassionate
We had options of physicians to work with, we chose to work specifically with Dr. Opsahl, he’s a very nurturing person. He makes you feel like you are his number one priority, you’re the only person that he’s dealing with and that your issues are the only issues that he cares about at that time.
When you go through infertility (and it is such a sensitive thing to go through) you need a little hand-holding. You need that personal touch and that personal relationship and someone especially very supportive. He was extremely supportive and compassionate with us, with our losses we had, he was very empathetic to that. That was the kind of person I needed to be working with, same with my husband. We both just felt that connection with him.
He was human and in touch with how a patient feels
Dr. Opsahl was very opened and very compassionate compared to some doctors who are very cold and very clinical. The first meeting, we sat down with him, my husband and I spent over an hour, maybe an hour and a half and of course I came with a huge history of treatments that we had and IUI’s and so forth. He was matter of fact, he was very concise and to the point but, he was very human and very in touch with how a patient feels. This is a huge issue a lot of couples face and it’s very draining with your emotions and quite overwhelming but, he made it seem like he really cared.
I felt like I was family
I felt like I was walking to someone’s home, not into a doctor’s office. I didn’t feel like I was a customer, I felt like they truly understood my situation, they wanted to help me and they made me feel comfortable. Talking to Dr. Opsal was like talking to a friend. He talked to me like I was a normal person, he didn’t use a bunch of medical terms where I had no idea what he was talking about. Dr. Opsahl didn’t beat around the bush as far as what the odds were or what the chances were. He was very optimistic from the beginning. Because I am a little bit older, I was 38 when I went through the process with the fertility clinic , he was very clear about what was going on. He was just very open and said, ‘here is what the odds are and here’s what we can do and if you want to move forward.’
With Dr. Opsahl, it’s not about the doctor stuff, it’s about the emotional stuff; he really wants to succeed and he wants the families to be happy and that takes a special person, it really does.
I adore him and the medical team he works with and consider them part of my family. They helped me finish my family and I can’t ever thank them for that ever.
