Words can not express the depth of our gratitude to you and your team for giving us the gift of life. After 3 years of trying to conceive and two unsuccessful IVF at a different facility, I finally got pregnant with twins!! My husband and I had an excellent experience with Dr. Caperton and his team. Through the entire process, we felt warmth and support of everyone in the office. Dr. Caperton is extremely knowledgeable, caring and professional and we can not thank him enough.

I would not recommend Dr. Caperton's office at all. His care is virtually nonexistent since he performed none of the IUI procedures himself. Nursing staff did everything. I also did not think his protocols were current. I had consultations in DC and Los Angeles and their protocols were much more thorough. After a year of seeing him, we decided to go elsewhere and have had two pregnancies.
Thank you for your feedback. Historically, many patients have enjoyed the interaction with the nursing staff - sorry that was not your experience. In July of this year we moved and built a cutting-edge facility, added several nationally known embryologists to our staff, and have had the opportunity to add dramatically to our technology and success rates - now leading the nation in many areas. Congratulations on your success with building your family, and thank you again for your feedback!

Dr. Caperton and his team are absolutely amazing!!! Dr. Caperton and his team of nurses are very professional, caring, patient, and always optimistic. Dr. Caperton treated my wife for infertility, and was the kindest most compassionate Doctor either of us has ever had. When we thought we would never be able to have children of our own, he always gave us hope. After two years of disappointments, my wife and I are finally pregnant for the first time. We owe it all to Dr. Caperton and his team.
Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. We appreciate your kind words. Congratulations on the recent addition to your family!
