Testimonials

We are proud to have been bringing miracles into the world for over 15 years now, and one of the best parts of our job is hearing the good news and seeing the results first hand. So please keep the birth announcements, Christmas cards, and baby pictures coming!! You can also leave us a note on our online survey.

Thank you Jo, I’m touched by these lovely ladies and what they have to say on their donor profiles.

Their kind words and thoughtfulness to give the gift of life and a baby to couples like my husband and I who so badly desire to have children and struggle to do so have given such an unbelievable gift. I can’t thank them enough each profile makes me cry with gratitude. Please pass this message on to your donors because people like myself can’t thank them enough.

Dear Dr. Johnson, Dr Rehman, Jo :) , Julie, Kristin, Lisa, all awesome front office & fantastic nurses… & embryologists!

How do we say “Thank you” in a way that matces our joy? I/we don’t know there is away! We do know we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for your fantastic care and amazing grace during both dark times and wonderful times.

You haven’t see the last of us!

P.S. I chose this card b/c it has 5 little jewels… the new # in our family :)

We had a long and bumpy road getting our son here, but the advanced technical knowledge, service, professionalism, and kindness the staff at ORH showed will always hold a special place in our hearts.

We knew we had hit the jackpot with ORH, but didn’t realize just HOW LUCKY we were until we heard stories of friends who went to other clinics. The quality of care and expertise of the staff was just not the same as ORH.

Even after we left the care of the clinic, the staff has been willing to help with random things we’ve needed in connection with our son.

Everyone at the clinic goes ABOVE and BEYOND clinical assistance to human assistance, and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.

THANK YOU AGAIN! We will always be proud to be a part of the ORH extended family.

Thank you so much everyone at ORH for helping us to finally bring our two miracles into the world! After 6 years, 4 lost babies, 3 failed pregnancies, 3 , & 5 IVF’s our dreams have finally become reality.

Thank you for all your help!

I’m a patient who last year went through Seattle Reproductive Medicine. Even without ORH to compare the experience to, I felt like I was in a car wash–by which, I mean everything was “going through the motions”. There was no individuality, no personal touch.

With the HSG, I had to call, continuously, as appointments were in great demand. I ended up having to drive down to Tacoma to get the first available appointment. I wasn’t prescribed any antibiotics, or told to take any pain medication of any kind (let alone given a prescription). The test was extremely painful. No one made an effort to relax me, or make me feel more comfortable–certainly no one offered to hold my hand, like Kristin, or joke with me, like Dr. Johnson. It probably took 30 minutes for the test, which left me in tears.

Contrast this to the experience I had at ORH today. It was like having champagne instead of Boone’s Farm. Pre-setting of expectations before I even arrived, checking on if I’d taken pain meds, a pain medication prescription. Good humored, kind, empathic staff (EVERYONE). Done within ten minutes, and a thorough explanation of what my results were.
Thank you ORH. You are a level unto your own.

(Thanks to Julie for my ultrasound on Tuesday too–all the same gushing compliments apply :)

Overall everyone was absolutely wonderful! I especially loved how much time and concerned effort Dr. Johnson spent/put in with us at our appointment. Note: I have not yet actually experienced the lab services or western medical billing but there was not an: n/a option to click.

Dear Dr. Rehman, Jo, And the entire team at Overlake Reproductive Health-
I don’t know whether you remember us, but we were outside monitoring patients at Overlake Reproductive Health last year. You monitored us during two IVF cycles we completed at the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine under the care of Dr. William Schoolcraft.

We are writing to thank you for everything you did for us. Our IVF journey, which began in 2008, was long and difficult with many painful setbacks. In 2010, our original reproductive endocrinologist referred us to Dr. Schoolcraft, and by the time we met you in 2012 we had almost given up any hope of having a baby. As you know, both of the cycles you monitored resulted in pregnancy. Sadly, we lost the first pregnancy. The second pregnancy, however, was successful, an on March 27th we had a healthy baby girl! Her name is [name removed]. After all these years, we are so happy to have her here with us. Very day with her is a wonder!

We have interacted with many different care providers during our years of infertility treatment and want to let you know that your team is very special. It was always a pleasure to come to your clinic where people knew us by name and treated us with genuine care and compassion. You did more than monitor us. You helped us through some exceptionally difficult and stressful times. Your compassion, concern, responsiveness, and understanding made a significant difference for us. Words cannot express our appreciation. Thank you for being there for us and for the excellent care you provided!!

We wish you all the best.
Thank you!!
J&K&S

For such a potentially awkward interaction, I have found the staff to be very professional, courteous, and able to provide clear technical instruction. Also, I’m sure that this is not intentional, but I have enjoyed the predominantly female staff that are there with me through the procedures.

Thank you so much everyone at ORH for helping us to finally bring our two miracles into the world! After 6 years, 4 lost babies, 3 failed pregnancies, 3 , & 5 IVF’s our dreams have finally become reality.

There were ups and downs during my time in your care but I always felt as though I wasn’t just a number and each one of you actually cared about my well being. That is often a hard thing to find in today’s healthcare system. Thank you all!

***

I could not be happier with the staff and support I received as a patient at ORH. We went through some emotionally tough times, but I am blessed with a son for all of our efforts. He is my world and I cannot thank Jo, Jesse, Shaun, our RE’s and all the assistants enough for helping me reach my last embryo. I love you all.

Dear Dr. Johnson, Dr. Rehman, Jo & ORH Staff,

Words cannot express our gratitude for your help in bringing us our two miracles. Thank you for making our dreams of a family come true.

Dear Dr. Khurram, Julie, Jo, Kit, Christen, Jen, Jenefer, and the rest of Dr. Johnson’s staff,
My husband and I would like to offer our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for the wonderful care and treatment I had received while under your care for infertility during the past few years. You make miracles with God’s help and blessings. Thanks to your care, we were blessed with our beautiful and happy daughter and look forward to our coming baby (3 month pregnancy). We are very thankful and impressed at the level of professionalism exhibited by all of the staff and tremendous standard of care we received. Our family is very grateful for all that you have done for us.
Sincerely,
Y, A, S

All the best,

We cannot say enough about the clinical staff at ORH. Each person has their own unique personalities, and they all have their own way of showing us that we are people, not just patients. We truly feel that each person on the medical staff is fully invested in our dream to have a family.
The office staff is always friendly when we come in (although we miss Sheila and her wit and smiles!)
Kristin: Oh, we cannot say enough about her. She’s been with us since the beginning. She stayed on the phone with me and kept stating the positives after our first loss. Her positive attitude helped to keep our spirits up during this whole process. She never makes you feel like your questions are silly, or that your concerns are unwarranted.
Ashley: She was there to celebrate, and also to comfort us when we had a scare. It’s clear that she cares about what she does.
Jenny: Her humor lifted us when we were worried, or just needed someone to joke with. Whenever I called with a million questions, she always answered them, even when anyone else would have hung up one me!
Shaun: Straightforward, clear, caring, all with a bit of humor. He knows his stuff, and can explain it to patients in terms they understand.
Julie: We haven’t worked with her very long, but she’s been very professional and caring. She promptly called us back at 3:30 am when we had a scare and met us in the clinic early the next morning to be with us.
Jo: Wow. Jo…This woman is brilliant. I don’t doubt that she’s one of the leading medical professionals in her field. She feels like a leader, and has a heart of gold. She’s been with us since the beginning, answers emails (even when she’s on vacation!) and is so patient with all of the questions that we have. From breaking down the purpose and dose of each medication, to making sure you’ve got your favorite music playing during the embryo transfer, this woman cares about helping you reach your dream.
Dr. Johnson: He makes you laugh, even in those low points. He keeps things light when things get stressful.
Last, (but DEFINITELY not least) Dr. Rehman: What a heart-since day one. This journey has been up and down, but from the moment you meet him, you know he cares, and you will receive the best medical care possible. His presence kept us calm. His genuine happiness for us is so evident. He offered comfort when we began our 2nd round of IVF, and when we celebrated good news with smiles, it felt as if he was one of our family members.

Yes, I know I’ve said a lot…no clinic is perfect, and we’ve had our bumps in the road with ORH. However, because of the medical staff, we’ve trusted our care to them. We look forward to enjoying our new family soon (6 more months!), and owe it all to the team at Overlake Reproductive.

Hi Jo,

I didn’t get to see you today. I wanted to say thank you, with all of my heart, for your reassurance and guidance. Without you answering my thousand questions and making me feel like it’s okay, I would have been a nervous wreck :-) . I appreciate you and the staff :-) for helping me and E get to this point.

Sincerely,

M

I cannot believe that this time last year, I had just found out that I was finally pregnant. We are so blessed to have been helped by science and everyone at Overlake.

We were originally drawn to Overlake because of their openness and willingness to communicate costs. Our insurance covered almost nothing so it was important to us to know what the charges would be ahead of time. The team at Overlake was wonderful from the first phone call. They were prompt and the background paperwork we received was thorough.

Our experience with Overlake was exceptional. Their Peace of Mind program made us feel confident that our goal of having a baby was their goal as well. The staff was so kind and understanding during our IVF treatment. The treatment we received was so personal and we really felt like we received everyone’s full attention.

I cannot say enough about how happy we were with Overlake.

***

The best fertility clinic that I ever dealt with. They care about their patients as much they care for themselves. They are straightforward.

Always on time. When I had question, they were prepared and sweet about it. Always on call. I had an emergency during the evening. Jo called me while it was after hours. Totally caring staff. Very polite and straight-forward. Very understanding when it comes to the billing part. I didn’t have my payment on hand, they were very helpful and understanding.

The entire staff is awesome. I love each and everyone. Dr. Johnson and Dr. Khurram treat us like family. Jo is a sweetheart. I will miss her sweetness and casual chat about my condition. Shaun [is an] awesome hard-worker. He is an all out magician. And the nurses and front desk ladies are totally sweet and friendly. I will miss them all…but until next time.

***

The clinical staff is very professional and courteous.
The front office is very kind and professional.

The billing service is very patient and understanding about clients paying their bills.

***

The care that we received from all of the employees at ORH was exceptional. We could not have asked for better care during such a sensitive time. All of the staff members are wonderful at ORH; however, Jo Grayhouse exceeded our expectations. Following the implantation, I was warmly welcomed into the office at any time for an ultrasound or follow up to help resolve any anxiety or issues we were having. Thank you to everyone at ORH for helping us complete our family!

***

Thank you for all your hard work! You have made our lives so much more happy.

***

Jo is amazing. As a remote patient, I always felt like I was in good hands. I love that she keeps a good sense of humor throughout the chaos. She has a lot on her plate, but never seems to drop the ball. It’s impressive. The lab staff are great. They’re so accessible and are always willing to answer questions even during the busiest of days. The positive attitude of the medical assistants really helped me get through the process. It certainly felt like all the team members were “on my team”.

***

Both Dr Rehman & Johnson, Jo, Kirsten, Jesse & Jenny were all fantastic! Overall we had a wonderful experience with the team. Everyone was so compassionate, knowledgeable and kind. We are so thankful to have a beautiful baby boy. Thank you for giving us such a special gift in our lives.

***

To all the staff/Doctors/Nurses at Overlake Reproductive Health,
Thank you for making our dreams come true and for providing the best care to my husband and I. I’ll forever be thankful for everything you do and proud to be a patient at Overlake Reproductive Health.
Thanks again L

The team here is, by far, the most professional I have encountered in my work with a total of four fertility clinics, two in Portland, OR and one other in Seattle. The entire team is fabulous about education and communication. I feel very safe and well informed. The medical assistants have been timely in their replies and generous in providing supplies when needed.

Every member of the team from front desk to finance to lab to medical assistant, nurse practitioner and physician has made me feel as if I am the most important patient you have. They have been in control of all medical information and have been ready to discuss and reassure as needed. They respond very timely and I feel confident that I have been heard and addressed as an individual and treated with respect.

Check-in/Check-out and appointments have never been easier. I am always greeted by name, asked how I am doing on that day and seen promptly. It’s wonderful to have a staff that remembers details, like the baby’s intended name, and seems genuinely happy in their roles for the clinic. It was great to have them folks track down the billing error from the genetics lab and handle the conversation for me; they are doing a great job.

I can’t say enough positive about the entire team. Everyone knows and performs their role to the best of my expectations and does so with calm grace.

I can’t say enough about Jo; she has made me comfortable and has reassured me time and time again. Your medical assistants have been wonderful, each and every one of them and your front office staff is a true joy. Both physicians have been fabulous. I wish I could refer everyone I know to your offices, every medical office should be this professional, this knowledgeable and this much of a true pleasure. Fertility issues are greatly challenging – emotionally, physically and financially; you make each part of the challenge a bit easier and more manageable. I can’t thank you enough.

***

It works! I got pregnant the first round of IUI. Thanks to Dr. Rehman and all the staff.

***

I would like to personally say the HSG procedure was not as a stitch painful as when I had it done in 2009 at Pacific NW Fertility. Your instructions before and after the procedure was very helpful. I was hesitant of taking the test but glad I followed your instructions for barely there stitch of pain procedure. You were awesome. Thank you!!!

My husband and I are glad that we started the process with ORH. Your staff is very knowledgeable and very thorough. We wished we had started with ORH and not with other leading company in Seattle. Keep up the good work. Your staff is great!!!!

***

Dr. Rehman was wonderful!!! Also Josephi (I am sorry if I didn’t spell her name correctly) was amazing!!!

***

Kristin,
We just wanted to thank you for taking care of us in such a special way, you always made us feel good and that helped us to make this difficult process a little bit easier. We appreciate all your effort and we thank you for the joy and heart you put on your work.
Muchas Gracias

Jo,
We wanted to thank you for all you did for us, we know you always cared for us. We hope everything stays ok but as of today you’ve helped us to be the happiest parents to be in the world. Thanks again for your wok, we’ll remember you with joy and we wish you nothing but the best in all your life.
God Bless you
Muchas Gracias

Thank you so much for our special little one. See you soon for number 2.

***

Dear Dr. Johnson,
I cannot thank you enough for finding out what was “wrong” with me. I truly believe if it wasn’t for a doctor like you, I’d still be on drugs, more tests and false hopes. Thank you for not encouraging us to go further. If it wasn’t for you, we’d still be childless.

I know that fertility specialists have “success” rates and we wouldn’t be considered one of them, but we are!! I wish there were more doctors like you.
Thank you

***

Jo – Thank you for all your support over the two years.
Thank you

***

Dear Jo, Dr. Rehman + Staff,
Thank you so much for everything you’ve done to help bring our children into this world. There are no words to describe how grateful I am for your medical wisdom, counsel, and care. We are forever grateful.
Happy Holidays

Dear Staff at Overlake,
A year ago we dreamed of having a family like we do now. Today our miracle babies are a reality. We are thrilled to have had two beautiful sons. Thanks to dedicated and caring people such as Dr. Rehman, our doctor, Shaun Kelly the lab director, our nurse Jo Overhouse Gray and other staff who coordinated and reviewed things we are proud parents today.
Thanks again for the double blessing!

***

Dear Dr. Johnson, Jo, and staff,
This note is LONG overdue!! After 22 years of trying, to finally have our little boy, is truly a miracle! He is so perfect and we are treasuring every moment!! Thank you all for your support, encouragement, and wonderful care throughout the process.

Thank you, too, for putting up with my needle phobia and for helping me work through it. Our boy is worth all the pokes and all the effort!! Now, our boy is 1-1/2 and here we are beginning this journey again with another tiny blessing. We couldn’t be any happier and want to thank you for everything you’re doing to ensure this new child gets off to a great start as well.
With Love and Gratitude,
C

Dear Dr. Johnson,
Thank you so much for everything you have done for us over the past couple years. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate everything you and your staff do on a daily basis; not just medically, but emotionally as well. Your positive attitude and bedside manner allowed us to remain positive and never give up. And now, after 2-1/2 years, it looks like it will be a success!!

Thanks again to you and everyone involved in your practice for hanging in there with us. Please also pass on a special thanks to all those in the lab. We both know how much of a role they play in the final outcome.
With sincerest gratitude to you,
B & T

Doctor Johnson & Jo,
We are so grateful for all that you did to help us achieve the miracle of our precious babies, a little girl and a little boy. We still can’t believe they are here, healthy and happy!! It was a long road, and you were both right beside us every step of the way. We will never forget your patience, expertise, encouragement and support.
Our love and sincere appreciation,
L & P

***

We really love Dr. Johnson!

***

I love the entire staff at ORH! Everyone is so friendly, professional, and address all questions at any time.

***

Jo was the best! She took time to explain all aspects thoroughly. She kept me up to date on test results and problem solving strategies.

***

We LOVE Jo! She has been amazing! From printing out all of our monthly calendars, to being just a phone call away. She is very thorough, friendly and informative.

***

Dr. Rehman is truly an awesome doctor. He is very detailed oriented, passionate about what he does but most important, very caring and able to connect with his clients. He listens to what his clients have to say and make sure that all questions or concerns are addressed. His team of nurses are truly one of a kind. They make you feel like family or a close friend that they have known forever. They relate with clients and experience the same emotions with you (very sympathetic). This is the first doctor’s office that I enjoy visiting because of how welcoming the team makes me feel.

Elaine in the billing department is great. She takes care of all my questions or concerns I may have regarding my bill. She double checks everything to make sure that I am being billed correctly. And if there is a problem with the bill, she is willing to get it fixed.

Everyone at the Bellevue clinic are exceptional but my favorites that I tend to deal with on a more regular basis are: Dr. Rehman, Jo, Jessie and the young blonde girl with glasses (I can’t remember her name). These four are by far just amazing individuals that make the clinic shine!!!

***

Everyone at the Bellevue office is outstanding! The MAs are all great but Jessie is amazing. I appreciate everyone’s ability to put me at ease, and my husband and I always appreciate that we are treated as people and not just the next chart on the wall. Dr. Johnson and Jo are both informative and encouraging and I will recommend ORH for life!

***

We are thankful for all of the medical staff at ORH. They were so knowledgeable and yet helped me feel confident in the choices I was making. I know it is not common, but 2 weeks after treatment started I was pregnant and to us that is a miracle (one brought about by good science ;) Everyone we worked with was top-notch and the PAs were so kind even when I was about to burst into tears they could get me laughing. Staff was very helpful, the hardest part about it was waiting for my initial appointment! They were all over it every time. Thank you!

Jesse, thank you your kindness on Mother’s Day when I was so depressed about my fasting blood test instead of family brunch. And for helping me with the progesterone when my insurance was being stupid. And for helping me stay positive, clearly it worked! Can’t wait to bring this baby in to see you all in March.

***

I was so pleased with the staff and the way they let me know what my test results where.

***

Our issues were extremely complex, having fertility issues on both sides. Dr. Johnson and Jo kept reassuring us that it could happen if we didn’t give up, and it did. I could have never dreamed I would be sending out pictures of my beautiful baby. Jo was critical in our success. I can’t even begin to explain how much she has done for us on every level. She never seemed frustrated when she had to explain something to me for the 3rd time, she let me cry when the test came back negative for the umpteenth time, she let me obsess and call her with all my questions I had gotten off the Internet, she had limitless patience with me and most of all, she seemed to know exactly how the pain and hopelessness of infertility felt. I spent 8 years of my life trying to become a mother, and it was as if she was my personal project manager the entire time. I would have never found the strength to keep going without her and she holds a huge place in our hearts forever. I know you already know this, and I’ve told her this many times, but I never pass up a chance to blab about her. Thank you a million times over.

***

Dr. Johnson is great to work with. He keeps a very serious, stressful situation light and fun. Dr. Rehman is much more serious, but does a great job giving information and answering questions. The nurses are friendly and helpful.

Overall the doctors, nurses and assistants are friendly and helpful. They are all available for questions when you have one and all are more than willing to help.

***

The doctor I met with was very informative and was sure to repeat himself so he knew my husband and I fully understood. Front desk was very happy to see me and treated me as a friend even though it was my first visit!

***

Staff members at the front desk and other medical assistants are efficient and friendly and it’s a nice touch that they take the effort to greet you by first name. Dr. Rehman has also been thorough and informative. The office’s new medical assistant, Kristy (sp?), is genuinely warm and a pleasure to interact with.

***

I love the entire staff at ORH! Everyone is so friendly, professional, and address all questions at any time

***

The front desk staff was very welcoming and helpful. I appreciated that she discussed the financial issues with me and provided a sheet with a breakdown of the coverage my insurance provides for infertility testing and treatment. I was impressed with the ID process and liked that the names on the samples were approved by me and the electronic ID was shown to me.

***

We have been trying for a baby since 4 years and had undergone various checkups and medications. Just one month of Clomid challenge test and Dr. Kevin & team surely has performed some magic we believe! Thanx a ton to whole ORH team!!

***

Physicians are really knowledgeable, helpful and cheerful.

***

Dr. Johnson and Jo are amazing and very personable. All the staffers are respectful and very kind and knowledgeable.

***

Jo is very knowledgeable and I feel like she is always on top of everything. The medical assistants are always encouraging questions and have been very helpful.

***

I never felt like “just another patient”. I was always treated as an important individual with respect. The people really make the difference. My very favorite has always been Jo, she always exceeds my expectations We’ve always been very pleased and recommended them to others also.

***

Jesse is really great to have there for information and support. The receptionists are very helpful. Everyone makes it a nice relaxing environment to be in.

***

Very honest and friendly staff. I felt very comfortable with each visit.
The billing staff was patient and considerate with me. They understood if I forgot or couldn’t make a patient right on the spot.

The entire staff are awesome. Jo, Shaun, Khurram, and everyone are very unforgettable. I will continue to come back to try for our 3rd.

***

I found Dr. Rehman very knowledgeable about the topic we discussed. I appreciate the time he devoted in doing a thorough research even before the appointment and he patiently discussed various treatment options and answered our queries.

***

I was highly impressed by Dr. Johnson and his ability to diagnose my issues. I have had these issues for over 15 years and have seen countless doctors. He made it seem so easy to figure out and control with basic medication. I was ecstatic!! I recommend Overlake Reproductive Health not only for infertility complications but any other female issues.

***

Great receptionist, excellent MA’s and wonderful doctor!

***

Dr. Johnson, Jo Gray and the entire staff at ORH gave my husband and me the support, knowledge and individualized care with resulted in a successful IVF cycle. Dr. Johnson and Jo gave us hope without promises, and because of tremendous dedication to our dream we have a beautiful three-month old daughter. I have and continue to recommend ORH to those in our situation.

***

Love your nurse practitioners. They are very knowledgeable, compassionate and helpful. Your medical assistants are very kind and warm. I know that u/s and MD appointments can run late and there is nothing you can do about it but it would be great if those who come in just for blood draws could be helped quickly.

***

Whenever I have a question, the staff members can answer immediately.

***

We noticed that support in financial information has improved recently. These informational packages for the different testings and procedures are very helpful.

***

The lady who works on weekend is very nice and takes time for me to answer questions.

***

Dear Dr Johnson,
How can we show our gratitude to someone who gave us such a miracle? I hope you know what a divine service you provide. You bring such blessings to others with your skill, warmth and humor.

All we can say is thank you, bless you and good wishes to you and your family! Keep doing what you do–there are angels among us. May all your wishes come true!
Love C & J

***

Dear Overlake Reproductive Health:
Thank you so much for all you did to help make our dreams come true! We are so thrilled to be expecting a healthy baby (girl!!) on Dec 27th. The extraordinary technical competence and warm supportive demeanor exhibited by every team member made the IVF process a pleasure.
Thanks, B & TM

***

To Dr. Johnson and everyone @ ORH:
Thank you for the miracle in our lives! She is a wonderful baby and we are having a great time together. We are so grateful to you for all your help!
ML & JL
P.S. She weighs 11 pounds now

***

Dear Dr. Johnson & Staff
Thank you all for making this very difficult time seem easy. Everyone was/is so nice and genuinely loving, I enjoyed coming to the office for all the many visits and I have missed you all!

My husband and I had been wanting a baby for 6 years and we had gone through so much, but we have been blessed and we are truly thankful for all that you did to make it possible. I will bring baby in soon to all of you.

***

Dear Jo,
Just a note to say thank you for everything you have done to help us get pregnant! I appreciated so much your kindness and sense of humor. I have a lot of confidence about this pregnancy because of all the ways you helped build my confidence. I am now at almost 18 weeks, and all is well. I did finally get in with the OB you recommended, and I just love her. I am not as sick as I was, and I am starting to get really excited. I’ve not gained much weight yet for which I am grateful. I know it’s coming, but so far I feel good.

Anyway, I just wanted to express my real gratefulness to you for your care of me, and all the little things you have done to meet my needs during this time. I like it that you’re honest, direct and concise. I felt like I could trust you and I felt no need to get the opinion of others or get on the internet to do research etc. Thanks for being the best at what you do!

***

Dear Dr. Johnson!
Where does one begin to express the gratitude we feel towards you and your staff? For our daughter and son-in-law to have this beautiful, healthy little girl has brought so much joy to our entire family. All our family and friends were hoping, against all hope, that a miracle may happen–you made this miracle happen and we shall never stop thanking you for all the help and encouragement you gave the two young parents. I hope you know how much happiness you give to so many!
Thank you!
Happy grandparents

Dear Dr. Johnson, Dr. Rehman, Jo and staff,
We cannot thank you enough for assisting us with our secondary infertility struggles. We feel most blessed with the arrival of our baby girl. She just couldn’t wait to meet her family, as she was born just a few days shy of 36 weeks. We are doing great and thank you again for making our growing family dreams come true.
Sincerely,
S & A & W & M

Dr. Johnson,
We are so lucky to have a doctor like you on the eastside, we are very glad to know you.

Dear Jo,
Thank you for everything. We really appreciate all your help before, and after, the conception.

Dr. Johnson & staff,
Thanks so much for helping to make this little miracle happen. We are forever grateful to you & your amazing staff! Our son is doing great. We are loving every minute with him. Thanks for everything R &J

Dear Dr. Johnson’s Office,
First I want to apologize for taking so long to get this to you. I am sure those of you with kids can understand how hard it is to find time to do anything. Well, after 3 long years I have really come to love you guys and not that we have been blessed with a little angel I am really going to miss all of you. I swear ORH was a second home for me. But maybe that was because I was there forever. I can’t thank all of you enough for your friendship, your support, and for helping in making our dreams come true.

Our lives have never been more complete than they are now. Our daughter blessed us with her birth 2 ½ years ago and now our newest addition has completed our family. It was so great to finally experience pregnancy, labor and birth. We are so glad to have been able to share this amazing experience with all of you. We definitely couldn’t have done it without you.

The symbols on this card represent the trust and faith we had in you both with helping our daughter and the mother of our grandchild.
Thank you Doctor Johnson and Doctor Rehman

I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciated how wonderful you were when I/we were at the clinic. You really made a difference in all that we went through during those years. You helped get us (me, especially) through everything, your support and caring meant a lot to me.

I don’t know if I ever really said thank you—and wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all that you did to help us through it all.

***

Jo
…thank god you were along with me and supporting me. So much appreciated everything you have done and overall what an amazing person and clinician you are. Most importantly I consider you a friend for life. Can’t get rid of me now
Miss you and can’t wait for you to meet [our] little boy. -M

***

Just wanted to send a note and thank all of you who took part in our IVF cycle that has brought us our little boy. We appreciate each and every one of you and the long hours that you put in!!! It was quite a challenging and emotional process for us to go through, but you all made us feel comfortable and at ease with everything from start to finish. Thanks again for helping us make our dream come true. We are truly blessed.
Sincerely,
J&C

Dear Dr. Rehman and Dr. Johnson,

We felt very well cared for. All of our questions were answered immediately and thoroughly. We were given all of the information we needed throughout all of our procedures, and everyone was very knowledgeable and helpful. Medical assistants always answered questions left as messages, and Jo was great about responding to emails with questions or concerns. Love that everyone remembers your name and welcomes you every time you walk through the door, making an experience that could be very stressful, enjoyable.

***

I couldn’t have asked for a better team to help with the most important part of my life; to start a family. There’s nothing I would change about the clinic. You guys are doing an amazing job.

I couldn’t have asked for a better team to help with the most important part of my life; to start a family. Front desk staff are friendly, courtesy, and polite. There’s nothing I would change about the clinic. You guys are doing an amazing job.

Jo and the MAs deserve a giant pat on the back! They make their jobs seem effortless and they care so much!

***

Major props to Dr. Jo – Jesse and Jenny…. They were always helpful and friendly.

***

The clinical staff, including the weekend staff, demonstrates great patience and understanding.

***

The atmosphere in Overlake Reproductive is very friendly and cooperative… Very helpful staff and special thanks to Dr. Kevin Johnson to diagnose my problem… The staff is very good and active and Dr. Kevin Johnson is a very good doctor to solve your infertility problem…

***

I feel that Dr. Johnson and Jo are a GOOD TEAM! I always leave feeling like I got the best care possible. I feel that they are very knowledgeable about infertility stuff. Obviously, I’ve been a patient of yours for more than TEN YEARS. That is just crazy!

***

Dear Dr. Johnson,
Although none of our IVF attempts this past year was successful, it helps to know we had the finest care and advice available. Thank you for all of your efforts on our behalf.

***

Jo and Kristen were wonderful to work with and made every visit comfortable and relaxing. They were the shining stars of our experience. They are what makes this clinic so amazing. Their caring attitudes and the genuine connections we were able to make with them set ORH apart.

***

To everyone at Overlake,
We all wanted to thank you for all your patience & understanding in our efforts to bring our son into our lives. He is truly a miracle and we can’t thank you enough for all your efforts. I know we’ll be back to give him a little sibling. With much Thanks

***

Dr. Johnson,
Not a day goes by that we don’t thank god for our son. He is a blessing. You are an answer in prayer to so many struggling couples. As we celebrate his 2nd birthday on New Years Eve you will be in our thoughts.

***

The nurses and medical assistants are so nice and really try to make your visit as comfortable as possible. As an outside monitoring patient I really appreciate how kind they are and willingness to work with me. I’m not sure of her name, but one of the nurse or medical assistants that has drawn my blood a couple of times is absolutely wonderful. She’s blonde and has just the most upbeat attitude. She also has done the best at drawing blood from me. Her personality and character help make coming in for checkups easy and fun!

***

Incredible staff! I was highly impressed with all of your nurses and both Doctors I had the pleasure of meeting. Very friendly, and helpful. I doubt anybody else has ever enjoyed having their fallopian tubes dyed before, however it wasn’t too bad for me thanks to the awesome Dr. Johnson and nurse Kristin.

***

Dr. Rehman was always great and very supportive. Special thanks to Jo, she’s really great, great human being, she’s extremely professional and kind and also thanks to Kristin who was also very nice and kind with us, you guys really made the difference in this experience. Everyone was great but again, exceeding expectations were Jo and nurse Kristin that always gave us a great service and were very supportive even in though moments. Thank you guys, I hope god bless you forever and we certainly hope to see you again!

***

The medical assistant is always so friendly. People at the front desk greet you by name by your 3rd visit, and always with a smile, no matter how hectic it is in the office. [The] Appointments could be later in the day, but the office has been flexible with scheduling.

***

Everyone was amazing. Each person knew our names, knew our progress (within reason) and was wonderfully kind to us. Really, EVERYONE at EVERY step has been FANTASTIC, in all facets of our experience the expertise, professionalism, and sincere kindness of heart in our difficult struggle have been a gift. Jesse, Jo, and Kristin are superheros in our book.

***

When ORH was referred to us by a physician in Dallas, we had no idea the treasure we were about to stumble across! We are so lucky to have found this amazing practice. We adore everyone who works there – they’re all so kind and supportive and welcoming to our whole family. The doctors and NPs are excellent and extremely knowledgeable about everything! We have the greatest experience with them and we will be sad when we’re all done having our babies because we will miss them dearly!

***

Everyone at ORH is extremely professional, knowledgeable and kind.

***

Dr. Johnson, Jo and all staff,
We can’t express more how much appreciation we have for you. You gave us the best gift in the new century. For us, it’s not only a son, but also a whole new world! Your step by step process and clear explanation are very professional. The painless treatment and the whole warm atmosphere made us very enjoyable. The waiting time is always short which is so effective. You are angels! We wonder how many families have got this great gift because of you, how many families are rejoicing because of you! We are one of them. You provided us a totally new and exciting X-Mas and New Year. We will never forget you.

***

Dr. Johnson, Dr. Rehman, Jo, Shaun, and all the amazing staff at Overlake Reproductive Health, THANK YOU!

We could not feel more blessed for being recommended to your clinic. Thank you for your personal care, your persistence, your professionalism… and ultimately for helping us start our family!

***

Dear Dr. Johnson, Jo, and everyone else –
We wanted to let you know of the arrival of our twins!! It was wonderful to finally meet them, after the last few months of the pregnancy were made more challenging by gestational diabetes, early contractions, and mild pregnancy induced hypertension. Fortunately everyone was healthy, and now they are growing well (both were over 6 pounds by their one month checkup).
We wanted to thank you all for everything you did to help make these two little blessings happen! It was a long, hard road, and we were getting to our last hope of ever having children. Thank you so much for your professionalism, persistence, honest encouragement, and great skill in this difficult process. Even if the outcome had been different, we still would have been very satisfied with the treatment we received. Thankfully though, we were finally granted our little miracles, and now are enjoying the many challenges of parenthood!
Sincerely,
R & L

***

Dear Dr. Johnson, Jo & all the wonderful people at the clinic,
‘Thank you”. You guys have done it again we are so grateful to have such wonderful people who helped us with their expertise, compassion & care. We cannot thank you enough for bringing these precious little souls into our lives. We are already blessed with a wonderful little boy, and now we are excited to welcome one more little angel. All our best wishes & blessings will be with each and every one of you at the clinic.

***

Dear Dr. Johnson and Staff:
You have another success story on your hands! Thank you all so much for helping us with our dream. We have a TRUE angel. We made it to 36 weeks and have had a few hiccups but nothing serious.
Thank you for all your kindness.

***

Dear Drs. Rehman & Johnson, Jo, and Overlake Reproductive staff,
Thank you for supporting us throughout this process. You really helped keep our spirits up, and now we have chance we’ve always wanted: to have a beautiful, healthy baby girl or boy.
God Bless S & Y

I am an old patient of Dr Rehman. He performed my IVF w/ ICSI last year. I want to update you on the birth of my beautiful son. I have been waiting 14 years for this baby, and I thought that I wasn’t going to get him during treatment; but thanks to Dr. Rehman I now have my miracle in my arms. He is now 4 mos. old and he weighs 20 lbs so he doing great!!!
Just wanted to say thank you so much for standing by me!!!
Thanks, Dr Rehman.

***

I wanted to let you know that we had our baby boy on the 21st of last month! We want to thank you so much for everything you did for us. The whole egg donor/IVF process is very emotionally consuming and we felt very lucky to have you working with us. I felt that you were very supportive and genuinely caring and it made all of the difference in helping us move forward. Thank you for all of your help. We hope to work with you again in the future when we are ready to give our little boy a sibling.

***

My Husband and I married when I was 40, so it was not surprising when I did not get pregnant right away. After trying for several months, we turned to ORH for help. My training is as a scientist and I run clinical trials on new medical products, so I have a particular appreciation for the complexities associated with applying medical science and medical technology to an individual patient. At every step, I felt ORH worked to optimize our chances of success. They were extremely attentive to our concerns, very thoughtful, and very caring. Happily, on our second IVF cycle we had a healthy pregnancy and are now enjoying a wonderful thriving little boy. We remain very fond of the staff at ORH, and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

***

Everyone at ORH’s awesome! So friendly and willing to help all the time

Thank you all again so much for making this happen.

We want to thank you again for your part in helping us conceive our precious little girl. We are very blessed to have her in our family.

Our experience there at Overlake Reproductive Health was wonderful and we found the staff to be very caring. We have not hesitated to refer you to others that are trying to have a baby.

***

Dear ORH staff,
Our family would like to thank the ORH staff for helping our dreams come true again. All of you are wonderful. [Our daughter] is very excited about being a big sister. Thanks for everything you have done for our family.
Love,
The R family

***

I think Dr. Rehman has been an excellent doctor to me. I was also there yesterday for an ultrasound and the MA that was with me was also excellent. Very caring. I’ve always been treated really well both times I’ve been there. I really think ALL staff do a great job in showing that they REALLY care for each patient.

***

Dr. Johnson
I wanted to thank you for taking the time to meet with us to answer our many questions about the upcoming surgery. I’m afraid I’m rather nervous about it. So many of my hopes and future dreams rest on a positive outcome. I know that you will do your best to help us obtain those dreams, but also understand that you are only able to do what is in your power. But I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your thoroughness, professionalism, and compassion. This road to parenthood has been a lot more bumpy than we ever imagined that is would be. Thanks for trying to help us through the potholes

***

Dear Dr. Johnson,
I have been meaning to write and thank you for the two beautiful children you helped my daughter and son-in-law have. They had tried for many years to no avail. You were recommended by her doctor, and it was the best choice she made. This picture (not shown) was just before their 1st birthday; both are beautiful and perfect.
Thank you again,
Sincerely,
B & C

***

Dear Dr. Johnson, Jo, Shaun, and ORH staff,
We are looking forward to doing a FET with you. Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions regarding the cycle. Enclosed is a photo of one little angel. He is the light of our lives & we are forever grateful. We are so excited to try again & look forward to seeing you all soon!

Dear ORH Staff,
Here I am writing to you on our little ones 3-week birthday. Of course, we couldn’t have done it without you. We are so grateful for people like yourselves that take it upon themselves to enter a profession that provides blessings to others. Thank you! I have to say, the whole process wasn’t exactly easy, but it was certainly worth all of it, and you made the whole thing as bearable as possible. I tell everyone about the wonderful care I received from you, and how lucky we were to be your patients.

My little girl is everything any parent could pray for. Every little thing about her delights us, even her crying! I am sure that will wear off though! I am sure you will agree she is the prettiest little girl you ever saw. We will come visit again so Dr. Johnson can inspect the finished product. All our best to you!

***

Jo,
I want to really thank you for all of your patience and support. You are an amazing person and it is going to be really hard not seeing you. I don’t know that I could have done this without your help. The past three years have been very stressful and emotional for me in dealing with the fertility issues and you never let me down. Thank you for understanding when I had a million and one questions, thank you for letting me cry when I needed to , and thank you for taking the time to develop a personal relationship with me. You will never know just how much you have impacted my life and I can never thank you enough.

Please just know what an honor it is for me to have given my daughter your name. We will never forget you and our daughter will always know what a miracle she is and the people who helped in making her life possible.
Love, N

Hi, ORH,
Thank you for helping us realize our dream. Our children are a special blessing in our lives. Enclosed is a disk with photos of the twins with Dr. Johnson and Shaun from our visit and their photo at birth.

Hey Josephine,
Thank you so much for information you sent on the hospital on Maui. My husband and I feel very supported! We were overwhelmed and stressed out undergoing IVF but you and the other staff have made us so confident and comfortable with our decision.
Thank you again

***

Jo…
We just wanted to thank you for your help during the last two weeks… with the multiple emails, med, and ultrasounds. You made a stressful time much easier.
Thanks

Dear ORH
We want to thank you all! For everything. Your support, love, and care. Your hard work, unconditional support, and smiles have brought happiness and friendship. Thank you, M&A

***

We wanted to thank you for all your help throughout our fertility journey.
We feel extremely fortunate with the amount of support we have received from family and friends, several of which have been through the process before. Their recommendations and experiences helped guide up to make an educated decision to start the process. When we met with Dr. Johnson we were excited to get started. He did a great job of mapping out a plan and explaining his recommendations for moving forward based on our circumstances. Everyone at Overlake has been great but you have gone above and beyond. We are so grateful for your generosity. After this experience and all of the people who have reached out to us, it has changed our prospective on being more open about things. We want you to know we constantly remind ourselves how fortunate we are to have you watching over us. It means a lot to us and we are hopeful we can help in some small way for others in the future.

We have been trying to write this letter now for a very long time but each time I sit down at the computer something comes up. (I think it’s two little something’s) They will be turning a year old on February 1st. They are walking everywhere and jabbering some language only known to themselves. They are keeping us both very busy. I have decided to be a full time stay at home mom and I am loving it. We will never be able to thank you enough for helping bring these two little bundles of joy into our life. It is difficult to tell you exactly how they make us feel. We only imagined how they could change our lives and they have. We will never be the same, only better. Although no one can tell you how having children will make you feel. You just have to experience it for yourself. It is absolutely wonderful and fulfilling. We truly have been blessed, not once but twice. The first time they smiled at me, it brought tears to my eyes. Everyday they do something wonderful that make us smile. Even when they don’t want to go down for that nap. You have helped change our lives forever and we will always remember you and what you did for us. The support of your staff is also very appreciated. Thanks to everyone that made this possible. I am also enclosing a picture of the girls that I hope you will enjoy. Hopefully, we can bring the girls by for a visit soon. Thanks again.

***

With your help, we were able to have healthy twin girls. Though they were born five weeks premature, luckily they did not have any serious complications, and they are growing fast each day. We truly appreciate all the joy and happiness you have helped to bring to us. All of your staff were so sincere and caring that we were comfortable and confident with your treatment. Thank you so much and we wish you the best.

***

Dear Dr. Johnson & staff
Enclosed you will find a picture of our beautiful new babies, I was a patient of yours last year with a successful IVF times two. We went full term, and both babies were almost 7 lbs. each. I will always remember my IVF experience & want to thank you for everything you did to help us. Obviously we are extremely happy, if not sleep deprived. It was a two year road to finally become pregnant, and I don’t think I could have asked for a better IVF experience. I wish and hope for all your patients that they be as lucky as we have been! Tell them all to never lose hope. I am so glad we didn’t!
Best Wishes & Thank you so much!

All our dreams have come true with the birth of our son. The miracle of pregnancy has blossomed into the miracle of life. It’s better than we ever imagined.

The pregnancy was easy and pain free. I felt great up to the end. He came 5 weeks early, but we are thankful he acted like a full term baby. (Everyone still asks if we got our dates wrong!)

Thank you for all your patience and hand holding throughout. Dr. Johnson, Jo, and staff,

Enclosed is a picture of our daughter. She was born on April 1st. Two weeks early, so everyone thought we were playing an April Fools joke on them when we called. I know you hear this a lot, but we want to thank you for all that you have done. You should all know you are Angels. Even though the experience was not the easiest, all of you made both of us a little more at ease. If we ever want to have another little one we know where to come. Thank you again.

***

Dr. Johnson and all your wonderful staff
I just wanted to say thanks! I enjoyed my pregnancy & now have a sweet angel. I hope to try again in the spring (if I can talk my husband into it

***

We can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for us. When we came to you in October, it was such a low point for us, it was the culmination of months of disappointment and frustration. But your kindness, your expertise, and your professionalism brought hope and optimism back to us, and ultimately it made possible the pregnancy we weren’t sure was possible. Words are not enough!

***

All of you were a part of our sweet angel. Thank you for never giving up or letting us. Thank you for being there in good times & and the bad ones. Mostly thank you for this wonderful angel, we will always treasure her! Please add her name to your collection of miracles!

***

Thank you for helping us create this little miracle in our lives. It is such a joy to know we have the medical technology to make these dreams come true. Thank you for all of your help. We will see you again in a couple of years.

***

My husband and I decided to seek fertility experts after seven months of no results in early 2012. We learned I have low ovarian reserve and one of my tubes has issues which may hinder the egg and sperms from meeting. My husband checked out great. Drs urged us to try IVF towards end of 2012 however we elected IUI for two cycles. IVF was our next option however the treatment failed as my eggs did not respond to injections. We are disappointed and I am still healing from the aches. The drs and staff were supportive and understanding.

***

Hello Jo
First, thank you to you and all the staff for treating our surrogate and us so well on Monday. At many clinics this can all be awkward. She felt very comfortable with all of you and noted that your office is much friendlier than any other experience she has had (and she’s done this at 3 different clinics). Most doctors say something along the lines of “no more talking, and don’t move”, and that’s about it. She appreciated hearing all that was happening and in general the whole visit. Thank you for everything!

***

Hope things are going well for you in the new location. The babies are doing great- they are 5 months old and 15lbs each. As much as I love these little rug rats we feel our family is now complete and wish to donate the remaining embryos we have in storage to another couple in hopes they too will be happy.

***

I have seen Dr. Rehman, Dr. Johnson and Jo. All of them have been incredible in making this process smooth. They have reassured me and answered all of my questions throughout. Jo, in particular, has been amazing and I could not have gotten through all of this without her. The MA’s Jenny and Kristen, have also helped tremendously. Their great knowledge, gentle and good lab skills and great bed side manner and enthusiasm have made this SO much easier. They ALWAYS call me back in a timely manner and do everything that they can to help me. They are well educated and have been absolutely wonderful. I appreciate them so much. The front desk is GREAT! I have dealt primarily with Sami and Sheila and they have been just wonderful. They remember my husband and my name every time we come in and have always been very helpful, professional and make my visits go even more smoothly. And importantly, have always found a way to accommodate me and my cycle needs. Besides my issues with Elaine (independent billing), I have really enjoyed your staff and have referred several friends to you. You have a clean, beautiful, small office with an incredible staff that is professional, educated and personable. If you have to go through the stress of fertility treatment, I am glad to be here. You guys are great and I will never forget your efforts.

***

Dr. Rehman and staff provided exceptional services. Dr. Rehman is very knowledgeable and professional he gave me confidence to go forward with my surgery. Medical assistance team acknowledged and addressed my concerns very quickly. I appreciate front staff friendliness and professionalism. Thank you Overlake Reproductive team you made my visits very pleasant.

***

Carrie Connaker, Jo Overhouse and Dr. Johnson are awesome in all the possible aspects. Hopefully I will be pregnant and the experience with your clinic would have been even more awesome.

***

We are usually pleased at our appointments. Everyone is very friendly. Kristen, Jenny, Sheila, and Sammy are consistently exceptional. They really go out of their way to make the visit pleasant!

Overall we are usually pleased with the care that is given to us.

***

Love, Love, Love ALL the staff! They treat you like family here. Awesome staff up front! Sheila is so awesome! She is always so willing and happy to help.

***

Dr Rehman, Jo, Jennie and the staff were all great. They all took time to explain the process and steps to be taken. The staff during weekends were awesome too! We had a very positive experience overall and love this place and have recommended this place to a few of our friends. Sheila is fabulous and was always prompt in helping or answering questions. Entire staff is fabulous!

***

From the minute I walk into the office, I am greeted by such sincere smiles and such friendly faces Everyone is absolutely wonderful! Sheila, Jesse, Jenny, Kristen, Jo!! And of course the doctors too I will be very sad when my husband and I are done having babies because I won’t get to see all these wonderful friends all the time. Thank you for your excellent care and your super happy office!! It really makes my day.

***

Dr Rehman, Jennie, Jo and Sheila are doing a wonderful job and deserve kudos!

***

Extremely patient and willing to answer all questions. Even as a new patient, they have been more than happy to spend a lot of time making me feel comfortable and explaining test results and options available within the confines of my insurance.

They were timely in responding to all questions and phone calls and willing to spend a great amount of time answering sorting out problems. However, it helps to be a well informed patient to know what questions to ask.
I found it somewhat of a challenge that it was not initially recognized that because my husband and I were not trying to conceive when I was referred that my insurance would cover the majority of my testing and treatment for endometriosis. However, everything was sorted out in less than a business day and in a professional manner.

***

Dr. Rehman, Jo, Kristin, Jesse, Jenny, Sheila, Sammy & the staff @ Overlake! Thank you for making this holiday extra special for us!

***

Doctors seem very knowledgeable. As far as I know the nurses and assistants are as well, but there have been some questions they couldn’t answer as well as the doctors. Everyone else has been very friendly. Sheila and Sammy are fantastic. They have always been so kind, so knowledgeable and so helpful.

***

Dear Dr. Johnson, Dr. Rehman & Staff,
We are so thankful to all of you! I had 3 miscarriages in the past. Your clinic diagnosed me with a protein S deficiency. You told me that as soon as I get pregnant to start taking Lovenox. We moved to Oregon later that year. By the end of 2010, I was pregnant! I told my Dr. in Portland about your diagnosis. She immediately put me on Lovenox. That was precisely what I needed. Without you and all your expertise, our baby [name] would never have had a chance at existence. Thank you for who you all are and for what you all do.
Sincerely E&C

***

We initially started to go to ORH to see if a tubal ligation reversal was a viable option. It was decided that it would not be. We began to look into IVF but were unable to make the finances work from out end. However Dr. Johnson began to treat the endometriosis I had been recently diagnosed with. My pain level was high and I was unable to work because of it. When conventional treatment wasn’t working Dr Johnson tried a new little known treatment. That was in 2005, I remain pain free as of this writing in 2010. Thanks to Dr. Johnson’s knowledge and caring my quality of life is great and I am able to do the things I love. He was also very personable, caring and helpful. Unfortunately I no longer live in the Seattle area, but Dr. Johnson is willing to continue my treatment if no one in my new area is comfortable. Everybody I dealt with in the office was just as caring and kind. I highly recommend them

***

Sarah was excellent. I fainted during my appointment and she was great in helping to make sure I was okay. Very easy to talk to and helped to keep me calm during my blood draws.

***

Dr. Johnson, Jo, Amy & staff
Thank you
T & C [initials] are miracles and we have your lab skills for giving us two healthy twin girls.

***

We came to your office with our hearts in our hands hoping that you could help us have a child. We were absolutely terrified. You made us feel so much better and we put our trust in your hands. And, oh my God, we are so incredibly grateful. I think it has taken me this long to put our gratitude into words because it is so enormous. It’s bigger than I can imagine. Thank you so much. Our beautiful boy was born on July 29th, 2004. He is the light of our lives and we cannot imagine our lives without him. Thank you so much. Dr. Johnson you were so reassuring. Jo, you are the Boss and you never let us down. Emily, sweet woman, you gave me the great news and I’ll always be grateful.

Let me tell you about our son. He is almost 5 years old and he is very funny, extremely loving and so healthy and strong. He is tall for his age, strong and very smart. He likes to pretend he is a Ninja fighter and jump around and make “his moves” as he calls them. He loves to cuddle with us and he says “I love you guys!” He is our only child and we love him beyond belief. Thank you all so much for making our dream come true. This kid is going to make a difference in this world. He has a great heart and he wants to be a hero. You all are my heroes.

We will always be grateful to you beyond belief for helping us to have this amazing person in our lives.

***

The nurses and doctors have been good about answering my questions and explaining the processes.

***

My husband and I came to ORH with hope in conceiving a child. We had a 30% of chance in conceiving a child because of our complicated case. However, ORH still performed a miracle. In May 31st 2008, we had a wonderful and beautiful 18 month old son who has our whole life in control. He is a smart, lovable, and friendly boy. He loves to dance to Yo Gabba Gabba, count to 10 and give high-5s.

No words can describe the appreciation we have towards ORH. We’re planning to come in the upcoming year 2010 to do another IVF. This awesome team has given us a chance to be parents to a wonderful bundle of joy. He is the sunshine of our life.

I will never forget ORH or any of the Staff. Dr Kevin Johnson and Dr. Khurram Rehman always gave us honest answers, and opened their arms to us. Jo is a sweetheart. I will never forget the phone call she gave me to tell me I was pregnant. She was calling from another state in order to give the wonderful news. Shaun’s support and kindness will never allow us to forget his voice. And the wonderful nurses, who greeted us every time we came, encourage us to come back every time.

They never made us lose hope. And we didn’t lose hope in conceiving another child. They will always be family to us. Thank you so much!
With love,
M & A & T

Dear Dr. Johnson, Jo & Cheryl,
Our little Miss made her quick entrance into the world 15 days early. She was almost born in the car! I had 1 ½ hours of total labor. My husband missed the birth parking the car. The Dr. didn’t make it to the room in time either. I guess I made the Nurses day.

Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to become parents of this miracle. She is a total joy. We are looking forward to all of the challenges ahead.
All the best.

Our first IVF cycle was successful however the pregnancy was not healthy. The staff was wonderful towards us during that time. It really helped and is one of the main reasons why we have chosen to come back for another cycle. They made us feel important and it’s the personal touches that count! I don’t think there is a negative thing that I could say. The staff really helped us during a very stressful time. Allen really put his efforts in helping my husband. He was always available and even after our loss, sent us his condolences. It was a very nice gesture! My only complaint….the rooms are cold! Otherwise the office is beautiful! The organization & flow from start to end really worked for us. It helped to have a calendar as well as the support. There is no single person that I can pick out. ORH truly has a family/team working with the patient’s best interests at heart!

***

Dear Dr. Johnson, & Cheryl & Jo,
Thank you guys SO MUCH for helping us get pregnant with our baby boy. We can hardly believe it “worked on the first try.” Your techniques at selecting the right “material” from both of us appear to work very well: we think our baby is beautiful and he is really bright, happy ,happy, happy baby boy.

Here is a picture we took of him a few months ago. Our apologies for not sending it sooner; we’ve been a little busy with the little guy and are getting remiss about correspondence. Thanks again for everything and we want you to know you are doing fantastic work.
Sincerely,
D & A

…we had the pleasure of working with you (and everyone else) at ORH to bring our beautiful babies into this world. No, they are not here yet of course! I am now 20 weeks along. At first we had an extremely tough start and even thought we had lost out twins at one point. However, things now are so wonderful and I am enjoying my pregnancy so so much! We love our babies so much already! And we did find out we are having a boy and a girl- we couldn’t have asked for better! I just wanted you to know how things were going and that my husband and I miss and think about you and all the others so often. Will you please tell Amy and Dr. Rehman hello for us? We really get a kick out of him! I hope you are doing well and that you and your family were still able to make it to Arizona over the holidays. I remember seeing all the flight delays and thought of you trying to get out there. Well I will be sure to send a picture when our little miracles arrive!
Love J

***

Dr. Jo is wonderful, she always makes me feel comfortable, and safe. I could not ask for more. Thank you.

***

Here are our beautiful twins. They came into this world on July 4th 2009. We still think of you and everyone else at ORH because without you guys, our babies wouldn’t be here. Will you show them to everyone? We are so proud of them. They are wonderful. We would love to come visit next time we’re in town. I hope you are enjoying the heat!!
Love, J

***

I absolutely love Dr. Johnson, Jo, and Amy!
Everyone there is great and I know it is their job but the care that these people put into each and every person is commendable! They make this whole stressful process so much easier and so much more comfortable. Thank you! Jo and Amy deserve a giant pat on the back! They make their jobs seem effortless and they care so much!

I was so pleased with the staff and the way they let me know what my test results were.

To all of our friends at Overlake Reproductive Health,
I just wanted to send a little note to say a huge thank you. My husband and I are blessed to be preparing for the births of our twin boy and girl due in late October.

I am sure like most couples, we never dreamed we would struggle with infertility. When we were first referred to Overlake Reproductive Health, It was the last place in the world I wanted to go. I was heartbroken that we were not able to get pregnant on our own and I font know anyone who wants to have to go to a fertility clinic. But from the moment we walked in the door, we know we were someplace special. How special, though, we had yet to discover. We could tell right away that we were in good knowledgeable, professional hands. However, we had no idea how caring, sincere, gentle, and friendly all the staff would be. Soon, ORH became our “home away from home” and in an odd way I looked forward to my weekly (and sometimes daily!) visits. I was provided such a great sense of security and support by the entire team from the moment I checked in at the front desk with Sammy, and Sheila, to the numerous blood draws with Jenny and Aimee, to the long budget talks with Mary, to the many ultrasounds with Jo, to the behind the scenes work of Carrie and Shaun, and finally throughout the IVF process with Dr. Rehman and Dr. Johnson. Truly, you all began to feel like extended family (minus the thanksgiving dinners!) ORH went from a place we hoped to never have to visit to a place that we found difficult to say goodbye to. Although, of course, we were happy to be leaving having achieved what we set out for in the first place – the start of our growing family.

Thank you for this amazing gift you have helped to bring about. We can’t wait to introduce our children to each of you this fall.

***

Jo was fabulous!

***

Very warm and friendly staff. They listen well. Sammy spent extra time talking to us and answering our questions. She made us feel very welcome and in good hands.

***

Over the 3 years of being a patient at ORH I have had the pleasure to work with many knowledgeable individuals. However for me there are a few key people who have gone above and beyond their job description and that is what makes ORH more than a Dr’s Office. To me you have been like family. Thank you Dr. Johnson for employing such exceptional people like Jo Gray and Aimee Jackson. You all are amazing!

The Clinical staff at ORH have truly been wonderful people to work with. Having the courtesy and quickness to respond to questions and situations is so important. When you are a patient going through the stresses that are involved with trying to have a family, you need a staff that is tentative to your needs. Not only as a patient but as a person. ORH provided me with the answers and assistance that I needed during my journey to become a mother.

I think that with some of the Front Staff changing over the years that I have been a patient, it’s difficult for me to truly grade them. The members who I have worked with have been knowledgeable and professional to the best of there ability in my opinion. I have had the pleasure to work with and get to know Sheila and she is a wonderful addition to the team at ORH.

The Front Office staff at ORH has been very courteous to me. I know at times they are extremely busy with the phones and dealing with a lot at one time. But even when I have had to wait for some help Shelia especially has been so welcoming and great with getting back to me. I know this may be one of the most difficult positions to be in at times because people who are having problems with starting a family are very fragile and don’t have a lot of patience. At times we may say or do things that normally we wouldn’t. So being able to overlook that and be friendly to help is an earned skill. Thank you Sheila for your smile and big hugs!

In general I am always very comfortable in your office and really can’t think of anything I would change. I do like the fact that when you give blood you are not put in an exam room or tucked away. It makes the appt seem more fun!

Thank you Dr. Johnson for employing such amazing people! Jo, Aimee and Sheila have been so wonderful to work with. Along with you too! Thank you for being more than a Doctor to my husband and I. You and your staff have truly gone above and beyond what is expected from a Doctors office. We are eternally grateful to all of you!

***

My fiance and I have learned so much from our consultations. We are very well informed of all testing and procedures and every staff member has been so helpful in answering any questions that we have. I am very comfortable and feel safe here at Overlake. Everyone has been extremely helpful and understanding and so patient. The front desk seems very organized. They are great, especially Sammi. She has helped me with a lot of insurance questions and costs and is still very patient and willing to help! Sammi has been wonderful with insurance and finances. Amy is great and has definitely been a pleasure to get to know. Both are so kind and genuine

***

The medical assistants in particular were much, much improved over my first cycle in May/June 2008. And because you are seeing the MA’s so much, good ones make a big difference.

***

To: Overlake Reproductive Doctors and Staff
We would love to tell you all thank you so much for everything; the wonderful help of all of you. We are now blessed with 2 beautiful babies. A girl and a boy born on March 14, 2009 a month early but are now almost 5 months old-healthy and strong.
Thanks again,
T&J

Dear Dr. Johnson,
We cannot imagine how our lives would be without our son who only came into this world because of Overlake Reproductive Health. We cannot believe that our perfect little baby came from those tiny little eggs and sperm that were joined for us by such wonderful specialists!

It is amazing to think of where we were a year ago, dealing with infertility, wondering if we’d ever be parents, to where we are now, with our beautiful baby. The process of IVF has allowed us to become parents. For that we are eternally grateful to Dr. Johnson, Jo, Shaun, Margaret and the rest of the wonderful team, who helped my husband and I make our dreams come true! You will always hold a special place on our family!

***

Josephine (Overhouse) Gray has been more than professional in every interaction we’ve had. She is discreet, direct and knowledgeable

***

To Dr. Johnson, Dr. Rehman, Jo, & the entire staff of ORH
We cannot thank you enough for your help in conceiving our son born 8/24/08! Fertility therapy is not an enjoyable process- there are so many emotional ups and downs. But your staff really made the experience a positive one. We always felt you were very knowledgeable, professional and had our best interests in mind. I still remember the day I came in for my 2nd HCG test and Laura and Shay had told me when they found out I was pregnant, they both celebrated in the office. For you guys who see miracles happen everyday – you sure made us feel like our miracle was unique.
Thank you,
L & S

Dear Dr. Johnson, Jo, Jubilee, Emily, and ORH Staff,
Thanks to your help… we were blessed with twins on May 10th, which happens to be my Dad’s birthday too. They were born within a minute of each other via planned C-section. Both are healthy and happy! They are the greatest joy in the world, and it’s a hoot watching them grow and learn. We think we have it pretty easy as far at twins go. They constantly amaze us with their daily new expressions, antics, and personal distinctions. While it was certainly a tough go in the first few weeks, now they both sleep through the night, and are very happy, funny, bright and healthy kids.

Getting to this point was physically and emotionally challenging. There were all the diagnostic tests, early morning temperature reading, IUI’s, the miscarriage, the heparin shots… and then 37-1/2 weeks of nausea, worry and every discomfort imaginable (both for me and my very tolerant husband). I used to read the letters in the books under your coffee table when I needed to feel like we weren’t alone in our situation and that there was hope of a good outcome. Because of that, I felt inclined to write a similar letter myself: not only to express our enormous gratitude for your services, but also to encourage other couples who may be enduring this struggle.

We are most fortunate, and thankful that you all used your individual talents to bring these two great souls into our lives.
Best wishes,
B & RS

Hello, Dr. Johnson and everybody!
We are very very happy to announce of the arrival of our daughter born October 8th 2007! She has been doing great.
We appreciate all supports you gave us. It is (indeed) a miracle to have a baby considering my age. Thank you so much!

***

Dear Dr. Johnson, Jo, Emily, and the rest of the awesome staff, Thank you for all your care. I am now 24 weeks along and so excited about this baby. We wish you many blessings, C&S

***

Here are some pictures of Elliott as promised. He was born on 12/31/07, so he is our New Year’s baby! As you can imagine, we are loving life!! It’s been an 8 year journey for us to get pregnant.

Our issues were extremely complex, having fertility issues on both sides. Dr. Johnson and Jo kept reassuring us that it could happen if we didn’t give up, and it did. I could have never dreamed I would be sending out pictures of my beautiful baby. Jo was critical in our success. I can’t even begin to explain how much she has done for us on every level. She never seemed frustrated when she had to explain something to me for the 3rd time, she let me cry when the test came back negative for the umpteenth time, she let me obsess and call her with all my questions I had gotten off the Internet, she had limitless patience with me and most of all, she seemed to know exactly how the pain and hopelessness of infertility felt. I spent 8 years of my life trying to become a mother, and it was as if she was my personal project manager the entire time. I would have never found the strength to keep going without her and she holds a huge place in our hearts forever. I know you already know this, and I’ve told her this many times, but I never pass up a chance to blab about her. :) Thank you a million times over.

***

Satisfied with the medical staff. I am pleased with all the services provided.

Dear Dr. Johnson, Jo and Lindsay,
It was seven years ago that my husband and I first visited your office with hopes of having a child. Never did we imagine that we would have three!

We welcomed our son into our lives on November 18th, His conception came without your assistance but I an so thankful that we needed your assistance for our first two. I was initially seen by a family practitioner to confirm my pregnancy. She gave little reassurance that my pregnancy was viable. I contacted your office after leaving hers. Your office responded to me so differently scheduling blood tests, follow up ultrasounds along with drug therapy. I realize that you cannot guarantee any pregnancy will hold but it gave me hope after each visit and strength that I was doing everything I could to ensure that the pregnancy progressed.

He was induced 3 weeks early to ensure that I would not deliver in the car… I seem to be quite efficient at delivering. After 2-1/2 hours of labor, our son was welcomed to the world. The doctor made the room this time but just barely. The nurse was literally holding him in telling me that I was not going to push him out until the doctor arrived. She was quite convincing.

Our son is a wonderful baby and is well loved by his big sisters. We have so much to be thankful for this holiday season. It seems only appropriate to start with a special ‘thanks’ the professional family that made our family possible. Many, many thanks for your caring nature, your outstanding medical care and the joy you have brought to our lives.
Peace and Health to your families this holiday season.
Merrily, merrily, M & M

Really enjoyed meeting for my initial consultation with Dr. Johnson. He really put me at ease, and made me feel hopeful for the future.

***

Dear Dr. Johnson, Jo, Lindsay, Shaun & the rest of the ORH staff,
Thank you so much for your support in our efforts to add to our family over the last year! While things didn’t turn out the way we had anticipated, we never lost hope. We decided to pursue adoption and just completed our home study. We will be adopting from Guatemala and hope to have a child by fall 2006. The positive attitude of your entire team was amazing and we are so thankful we went through this experience with you and your staff.
Thanks again
C & B

Dear Dr. Johnson, Jo, Lindsay, Jubilee, Jeanette, Kat, Laurel & rest of the ORH family,
We want to thank you from the bottom of our heats for helping us in every way to achieve our dream for expanding our family. Although the outcome was never in our favor, we feel great gratitude towards all of you. You’ve become part of our “extended” family & you will be missed dearly as we’ve given up on the dream of having biological children. We haven’t given up our dream of being parents however. We are praying that G-d meant for us to be parents through adoption-someday.

Thank you again for all you did in helping others in a way that you do best.
Always, T & S

Dear Dr. Johnson & staff,
Greetings from Tokyo. We finally had a baby in June 2004, through IUI. He is lovely and healthy boy. Thank you again for your successful operation and all your help.

Best wishes for the holidays and New Year to you all.
S.&H (Jan 2005)

Dear Dr. Johnson
Thank you so much for everything you have done for us over the past couple of years. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate everything you and your staff do on a daily basis; not just medically, but emotionally as well.

***

Dear Dr. Johnson,
We wanted to introduce you to our new daughter born December 2nd, 2003.
Without your help, neither our little girl nor our little 2-1/2 year old boy would be here today. One HSG was all it took to open up my stubborn tubes. With my daughter two HSG’s didn’t do the trick, but then a tubal cannulation was what you called for. What a miracle with only one tube able to be opened our little girl came into this world. Thank you also for helping us work with the insurance company to get the costs covered. It made a big difference.

We can not express our gratitude enough. We so appreciated you walking us through the process with both our children, moving one step at a time, carefully, to help us with our dream of having children.
Warmest wishes,
J&K

***

Dear Dr. Johnson, Jo, Shaun and the entire ORH Staff:
Thank you for helping us fulfill our dreams. We now have three beautiful children! We feel so blessed! You were so positive and supportive. We will never forget you. Thank you for not giving up on us!

To: Dr. Kevin M. Johnson, M.D. & All Staff
Dear Miracle Workers,
I’m writing this letter to personally thank every single person at Overlake Reproductive Health. Every person there has a hand in our small miracle that entered the world on November 1st 2003 at 11:13 am. She was 7 lbs. 13 oz and we named her S.A.G.

We can’t even begin to put into words how thankful we are to each and every one of you for your professionalism and determination on helping us begin the next step in our life. Thank you for your caring smiling faces every time we came in to the office when we so often felt very vulnerable and sometimes kind of weak. Thank you for your undying support and optimistic atmosphere which made going through such a rigorous schedule seem like smooth sailing.

Your office truly gave my husband and I the best present anyone could ever have and we will remember you all forever. Please find enclosed pictures, we hope you enjoy them and maybe inspire other hopeful parents with them.
Thank you, K.G, S.G., & S.G

Whenever I have a question, the staff members can answer immediately.

Dear Dr. Johnson and the amazing ORH Staff:
We wanted to thank everyone for the care and compassion we so graciously received throughout our journey to becoming parents. Everyone from the doctors to Jo, Jill, the nurses and the staff making the office run like clockwork have been incredible! Even through the stressful moments and decision making, everyone had a smile on their face and greeted us as if we had been friends for years!

So THANK YOU! Take a moment and enjoy a cookie and know that all your hard work, thoughtfulness, and caring go so far in people’s lives. You all are EXTRAORDINARY people.

Jo,
Our little girl has arrived!!! December 26, 2002 at 10:55 pm, weighing 7 lbs. 8 oz. and measuring 21 inches long. All went well with the delivery, etc., and we are beyond thrilled with our precious angel.

Please share the news with everyone at ORH. I’m attaching the first photo, but will drop by one of these days and show her off in person.
Happy New Year!!

***

Thank you!
Dr. Johnson, Cheryl, Emily and everyone at Overlake Reproductive Health,
Thank you so much for your help in making our little girl a reality. It had been a long road, but when we came to you things started charging right along. Thank you again.
Warm regards,
M & T

***

Dear Jo & Dr. Johnson,
I don’t have any words to describe our happiness and gratitude. You guys did a wonderful job with my IUI. I enjoyed every bit of my pregnancy & delivered a baby girl July 21,2001. Thank you both for the marvel you have made possible. My daughter and I plan on visiting you, & will do so soon.
With love,
J.

Thank you for all that you do, everyday. We have really appreciated the individualized care and kindness. While we wait out the next week and a half – it will be an anxious time, but its so nice to have friendly people to keep up company. Enjoy the cupcakes with our gratitude.
