What Our Patients Are Saying About Us

What a wild ride it's been over the last four years. I can't believe it's been that long since the whole journey began. You have blessed Gary and I with three beautiful children during that time and have blessed me with your friendship as well. There were times when I think all of us had our doubts about whether all these children would find their way to us, and I can't thank you enough for your perseverance and dedication to helping us complete our family. What you do is truly amazing. You touch the lives, not just of these children and their parents, but of everyone who will ever be touched by these little miracles. Someday I hope my children will marry and have families of their own and their spouses and children will be benefactors of the wonderful work you do.

I know you truly understand the struggle of infertility and having a doctor who has that kind of understanding and compassion is invaluable. You give all of us a kind of hope and support that others could not.

I don't think Gary and I could ever put into words how grateful we are to you for all you've done. You have given us three amazing children to love. We know there are a lot of people that never end up being able to have children, so knowing you were able to give us not just one, but three, makes us feel like we won the lottery. You will always be an incredibly special person in our lives and we will make sure that each of our beautiful children knows what an important role you played in their creation.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done for us. We know that you invest yourself emotionally in your patient's journeys and we hope that our happy ending brings you as much joy as it has for us. You are an amazing doctor and an incredibly special person. We love you!

Dr. Schmidt is a MIRACLE doctor! Especially if you are suffering from PCOS, MTHFR, or any other hormonal problem. When I experienced a hemorrhage at 6 weeks, Dr. Schmidt, dropped what she was doing and came rushing in to examine me and fight to keep my pregnancy viable, even when the ER docs told me I had no hope. Well, Dr. Schmidt proved them very wrong! Truly truly a miracle worker!


I had been to so many other doctors and on a trillion medications and still was miserable as was my husband. I am so grateful to my friend for referring me to you.  You diagnosed me on the first visit, began treatment and within a blink of my eye, ALL of my hot flashes and irregular bleeding stopped.  I am now free to live my life.  I couldn't believe my husband insisted he come to my second visit with you to personally thank you for saving our marriage.  Even though we lived out of California, I came to you and will continue to see you for all my gyn issues.  Now that I am "all fixed", I am kind of sad I only get to see you once a year for my annual. But, I have been and will be there every year. You are well worth the travel. 
No More Raging Hormones!!! Thanks again for my life and marriage back. I am loveable me again
Thank you for keeping our Baby's "heart" going strong! I thank God every day for allowing me the opportunity to meet someone as special as you are.

You are an amazing human being and an excellent professional.

You will always, always be in my Heart!

A BIG hug,
L & Family

We just wanted to thank you for our TWO LITTLE MIRACLES! There were a couple of times when we thought it just wasn't going to happen and you encouraged us to keep going. We are so glad you did. I feel fortunate to have been able to have this experience with you. You never felt just like a doctor, but a friend or family member. It was so great to know that I could call you anytime I had a question or was worried about something. We cannot express our gratitude enough. We can't wait for the day to be on "your wall." (she is referencing the wall of pictures of many of our miracle babies, which is now referred to as " the wall") We really know what it means to be on there!

We are amazed at your availability to your patients.We have never had a physician give us their home telephone and cell phone numbers like you do. We always knew you were there for us. Your availability 24/7 and your OPEN IUI SPERM PREP POLICY made us so comforted. Being encouraged to stay with our sperm sample and directly observe the preparation of our sample for the insemination gave us the reassurance we needed. You and your staff made our journey of getting and staying pregnant so much less scary for us because of your personal care of us and our baby. You are a part of our family now.

Love, M & S
