A beautiful fairy tale just begun for our family... Another little angel came to this world thanks to your valuable help...
You were right next to me since the first day I needed you.... In every moment of agony, fear, longing... Your words were my only guide.... You took me in you arms since the first day.... Like i am a family member...
A thank you is too little to express all the things i want to tell you... We love you very much!!!
Baby, mom and dad..!!!


What we owe you: Our gratitude for not tricking us or playing with us, like some other more well-known doctors do.
You have given us so much happiness! For me, it was 3 years ago!!
I was always stressed and troubled and I kept calling you. You responded “God willing.” You were the god among us and you may not feel that but all the women you have helped will agree with me. You made our dreams come true and disconnected us from this unpleasant stigma in our lives.
The only thing I would like to wish from the bottom of my heart is that God will keep you well so that other women will find this happiness that I felt in being a mother!!
We love you soooooo much as my oldest son, Michael, says!!
