    I REGRET THE DAY I EVER MET DR. DIAZ. I froze my eggs with him 10 years ago and he refused to thaw my eggs when I was ready to have a baby. He is the only one that knows how to handle slow frozen eggs, so I literally had no other options. I trusted him and he completely failed me. I spend $25K for NOTHING and I'm now too old to use my current eggs. If you want more details, see my yelp review. Stay away from this doctor; he is not to be trusted.
    Our motto is, "A new life is our life's work," but preserving an existing life is our ultimate professional & ethical responsibility. We understand that when patients come to us they are truly seeking hope. The loss of that hope, no matter the cause, is always heartbreaking. It's difficult to have to disappoint any of our patients, but sometimes doing the right thing when it is unpopular is essential. Healthgrades limit us to 500 characters in response. Please visit Yelp to get our full answer.
