"Dr. Gustin was so supportive."
The optimism and kindness of Dr. Gustin, Dr. Constance and all the nurses there made me feel like it was all going to be okay. I was really skeptical and thought it would take a few rounds to get pregnant, even though I was assured that we were perfect candidates. After our first transfer, we got the call that I was pregnant, and I was SHOCKED! I really didn't think it would work the first time. But we are absolutely overjoyed. I just "graduated" to my regular OB and we are so sad to leave Heartland. I truly felt like family there.View on Google
The journey of fertility is made clear, supportive, and lovely by the team at Heartland. I had the absolute best experience from the moment I began at Heartland. Dr. Gustin was so supportive and a leader on the path. I honestly needed someone to take my hand and lead the way. She did so in a way that empowered me to become the best mother I could be. After having tried everything to get pregnant "ourselves", going into Heartland was an answered prayer. My husband and I knew we were in the right place.View on Google
