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.
