    Hi Everyone,
    I wanted to share my experience that I had with Dr. Pacik, Ellen and Cynthia. Firstly without these three wonderful human beings, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Dr.Pacik took baby steps with me the whole way through, for me it wasn’t as easy after the surgery. I wasn’t able to dilate as most of the other patients in my group, firstly I started my menstrual cycle, second I developed and UTI, bacterial vaginosis and then finally a yeast infection, and third I was still plain scared to dilate, so I became very discouraged about this whole process. But Dr. Pacik and Ellen never let me give up on myself. Ellen spent extra time with me and my husband once everyone was gone to help me dilate, I don’t know a more beautiful soul then Ellen. She made me feel confident that I will be able to over come this fear I had. After we got home and I recovered from my infection, my husband and I took baby steps dilating, I had my surgery in August 2014 and today I’m able to dilate on my own to #4, for me this is a milestone, for someone who has never been able to see a gynecologist, or feel comfortable even talking about sex. Recently my husband I have been trying to start a family and it hasn’t been the easy road, I’m now seeing a fertility specialist and let me tell you, I wouldn’t have been able to even meet with him, if it wasn’t for Dr.Pacik and his team. I’m alot more comfortable with my body and with myself because of them. I still do have my moments of fear, but to be able to get IUI done would have never been possible if not for Dr. Pacik and Ellens help. I want to wish everyone the best of luck on there journey and stay strong, you can overcome anything as long as you have the will to do it. As for Dr. Pacik and Ellen there is a special place for the both of you in my heart, I wish you both so much love, happiness and good health in the next chapter of your lives.

    Dr. Pacik
