“A friend recommended Dr. Buyalos when I had trouble getting pregnant. Dr. B was able to pinpoint the problem and provide options for next steps. We had successful IVF cycles in 2014 and 2017, giving us three beautiful children. Dr. B was kind and compassionate and we couldn't have asked for a better doctor! All of the doctors and staff at FSAC coached us through every part of the process - the support given was amazing!” - Janet P.

Thank you!! Beautiful families and stories! Your stories give people so much hope in their journey. 💕

We first saw Dr. B in 2013 after multiple recurring pregnancy loss. He is the reason we have these two in our world today 🌈 @danielletdavid

Dr B made our dreams come true! After trying for 9 years and 7 (yes seven) invitros, we were blessed with twin boys!! We were ready to quit after six tries, but Dr B asked us to give him one more chance, and he worked his magic! Twelve years later, we are still the happiest family in Ventura. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ♥️

A friend recommended Dr. Buyalos when I had trouble getting pregnant. Dr. B was able to pinpoint the problem and provide options for next steps. We had successful IVF cycles in 2014 and 2017, giving us three beautiful children. Dr. B was kind and compassionate and we couldn't have asked for a better doctor! All of the doctors and staff at FSAC coached us through every part of the process - the support given was amazing!

When we first saw Dr. B in 2018, we had one boy and a diagnosis of unexplained secondary infertility. We desperately wanted additional children and Dr. B had a plan for us. We welcomed our rainbow boy in November 2018 and our baby girl in January 2021. Thank you Dr. B and the FSAC team for helping us get our long-awaited family members. ❤️❤️

We were referred to Dr. Hubert after trying for years to get pregnant on our own, and we are so grateful for everything he did for our family. Our unexplained infertility was a bit of a mystery, but Dr. Hubert was there with us every step of the way and never gave up on us. He patiently walked us through each part of our journey and he became like a member of our family. Because of him, we have this incredible little dude. We are so eternally grateful for Dr. Hubert and the entire FSAC team 💗

Pregnancy should not the punchline to your joke. However well intended, jokes like these are incredibly insensitive to the TTC communities, those who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss, and all fertility patients.
