Dear Dr. Lee,
When I take my son to the park and he's laughing and playing with the other children, I think about how blessed I feel to have him here. This has been the happiest time in my life. I love the laughter of children playing and when I see him at the park I look at him and can't believe he's mine.
I thank Dr. Lee so much for sending me my bundle of joy that fulfills my life every day and for being so understanding and compassionate, he really helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life. He's is a gem of a person and a wonderful physician.

Efraim at 3 months was smiling and laughing. At 1 year he was starting to walk and was climbing and playing a lot. He is a very happy baby and is a handful and a very lovable baby. He keeps us on our toes, running after him. We are very grateful with Dr. Lee and his staff for a bundle of joy.
Joseph and Lucy, proud parents of Efraim
We had tried for 3 yrs before coming to Dr. Lee. We were unhappy with the care we received previously and decided to try Dr. Lee. Our previous doctor had recommended exploratory surgery but we were against it. Thanks to Dr. Lee (and God or course), we were successful with IUI on our "second" attempt.
We will definitely be visiting Dr. Lee again very soon as we'd like to have a second, hopefully a girl this time. Joseph just had his 1st birthday. We celebrated with a big western party where he was the sheriff, all the kids were his deputies. Every day is a fun and exciting new experience with Joseph.
We can't imagine our lives without him. No words can express the joy we feel. We still can't stop hugging, holding and kissing him all the time. He is truly the love of our lives.
Sylvia and Joe, proud parents of Joseph
Alan and I married at 47 years of age. We both had always wanted children, but hadn't met the ‘right' partner until later in life. We knew it would take some special help to realize this dream at our advanced ages and we were so lucky to find Dr. Lee. It was so easy at that point. Dr. Lee referred us to an agency who was to provide the perfect donor egg. We appreciated the professionalism and integrity of both Dr. Lee and the donor agency.
Our little Jacob couldn't wait to meet his parents, so he arrived about 7 weeks early. He had to stay in the NICI for about 3 ½ weeks before he could come home to his anxious parents. It was instant ‘love at first sight' when we first saw our perfect baby. It's amazing how soon and how strong maternal and paternal instincts kick in. We want to do whatever it takes to keep our baby healthy and happy. We marvel at each development step from making eye contact to feeling his tiny fingers hold onto ours!
Alan, Diane, and baby Jacob
We were referred to Dr. Lee after having experienced a miscarriage 5 months earlier. Our current thinking then was “time is of the essence” as we fall into the Advanced Maternal Age (AMA) category. With that in mind, we decided IUI was the appropriate plan of action and we were successful on the 1st attempt. We were ecstatic to say the least. The pregnancy was exciting and problem free.
Our son, Dylan was born healthy 8lbs. even, 20 inches and arrived exactly on his due date just as Dr. Lee calculated. Dylan is now 9 ½ months old. He is the light of our lives. We are constantly kissing, hugging, and telling him how much we love him. We couldn't feel more blessed to have been given such a miracle of life.We thank Dr. Lee and his staff for helping to bring our bundle of joy into the world.

I decided to have a third child at the age of 37. My first two children are 5 and 9. I didn't have any trouble getting pregnant with them so I didn't expect it this time. After 6 months of trying, my husband and I decided to go see Dr. Lee. My husband tested fine and I was still making eggs. So it seemed to be my age that was slowing the process. Dr. Lee went over all the options. We decided to try Clomid. It didn't seem to do anything for me. We waited a few months and then decided to try something more aggressive. I really wanted to give birth before I turned 40 so we did the shots in my stomach. It worked!!
My pregnancy went very well and I gave birth to a healthy baby boy on October 5th, 2005. He is the happiest, easiest baby! My husband and I are really enjoying him. He even sleeps 8-9 hours at night now! Thank you Dr. Lee and staff for making this joy possible. This baby has added immeasurable joy to our family.

Our situation was a bit different in that we didn't just want to get pregnant; we had to. Cammeron was suffering from an extreme case of endometriosis that had her in and out of the hospital twice a month for almost two years. After a lengthy laparoscopy to remove the endometriosis, she was told she had about six months to get pregnant before it would return. This was not the time to be attempting to get pregnant without help.
We were referred to Dr. Lee's office by Cammeron's OB/GYN. From the moments following our first visit, we knew we were in good hands. Cammeron was pregnant after our second round of artificial insemination. Today, more than two years later, Cammeron is in tremendous health. The constant suffering from the endometriosis has been replaced by the constant love and joy of our son, Jayden Paul. Quite simply put, there has never been a time when we have ever enjoyed our lives more. Jayden has brought to us a new level of appreciating every single moment given to us.
Marc and Cammeron
My husband and I tried to conceive for 3 years. We met with Dr. Lee and had no clue what our problem was. After our consultation with him we did some tests. Dr. Lee gave us hope that we will have a baby.
After 3 IUI attempts, we did get pregnant! All the hard work and effort we put in did pay off.Our son, Aiden Tyler was born on June 2005. He's been a very happy baby and is turning a year very soon. My husband and I cannot imagine our life without our son.
Thank you Dr. Lee and to your staff which made this process easier than what we imagined it would be. Thanks for making our dream of having a family come true.
Maria and Jay
Our baby Drew is a blessing after 3 previous failed attempts at IVF at another clinic.
We appreciate Dr. Lee taking the time to listen and analyze the best option for us. We thank God everyday for Drew's life. The lack of sleep is challenging but we wouldn't trade it for anything! We've fallen in love with our son. We hope we can add a sibling to our family. Thank you Dr. Lee and his staff for helping us achieve our dream to start a family.

Andrew Michael was born July 18th, 2004 weighing in at 7 pounds, 10 ounces and measuring 19 1/2 inches long. On that date, our lives changed forever. For the first few weeks, we couldn't stop staring at him and would spontaneously burst into tears of joy, hardly believing that our little bundle of joy had finally made it into the world. It had been more than the anticipation of his birth over the course of 39 1/2 weeks, we had been dreaming about him long before he was conceived.
Our dream came true thanks to the care and support of Dr. Lee and his incredible staff. During our office visits, Dr. Lee empowered us with the information and steps necessary for conception, while at the same time demonstrating a true understanding of the emotions involved in the process.
Thank you Dr. Lee for your wisdom and superior care. Most of all, thank you for baby Andrew - the love of our lives.
Mando and Lia
Dear Dr. Lee and Staff,
Thank you so much for all your kindness you gave me during my first three months of pregnancy. The remaining six months went very well!
Our little one arrived on December 21, 2005. He was 7lbs 1oz and 20 1/2 inches long. After 16 hours of labor he was finally delivered by c-section. The doctor discovered that he was faced up.
But everything turned out okay!
I have enclosed a picture of him when he was just three weeks old.
Thank you again!
Denise and Jeff
Thank you Dr. Lee and all the staff. You have helped us in making our dreams come true. He is a very CUTE baby!!!
-Judy and Steve and baby Mason
I was diagnosed 12 years ago with PCOS and told getting pregnant would be difficult. Well, I was able to have 2 children easily with the help of Clomid. So, when I wanted a third child, I figured it would be a piece of cake. After a year of trying and a hopeless doctor, I was referred to Dr. Lee.
Dr. Lee and his staff are wonderful! They did not leave me with a feeling of hopelessness. I was able to get pregnant the first try with a combination of Clomid® and Repronex®.
On January 3rd, I gave birth to my sweet baby boy. He is perfect and all I dreamed of. He is the perfect addition to our family.
Thank you Dr. Lee for all of your help. You have a wonderful, caring staff.
Good luck to all and don't give up!!
- Krista and James
We just wanted to thank you for making our dreams come true. Everyone in the office always went above and beyond. All of you are wonderful and we are so thankful you are here.
Tammy and Kris
Being a parent is absolutely the most rewarding experience in life. Childbirth is such a beautiful miracle! The love we have for our baby boy is overwhelming at times. Everyday I wake up excited to see our baby and the new things he is doing. Randy is 6 months now and it seems like just yesterday I was nervous about delivery. He grows so fast and everyday is a new adventure.
Thank you so much Dr. Lee and staff for providing me with the best experience ever. Thank you so much for your help and care. We love and appreciate everything you have done for us.
-April and Rusty
We went through a lot of ups and downs before bringing home Owen. We got pregnant with twins on our first IVF attempt, but lost them at 22 weeks when my cervix dilated and I got an infection that could not be stopped. After the loss it took a frozen and 3 fresh cycles to get Owen. During the entire process, Mark and I were in awe of the compassion and care shown to us by the staff at Fertility Care. So many women going through IVF at big clinics seem to comment about feeling like a number, not a person. At Dr. Lee's practice, we always felt like we were the most important patients you had. We probably would have given up earlier if not for your care. Being parents is amazing. Completely exhausting, but amazing. I finally feel like my life is complete. This little gift has brought so much joy to our family that it was worth all the emotional ups and downs we faced along the way.

The Story of Our Little Miracle
After a year of trying to become pregnant, as a couple in our low 30's, we decided to pursue infertility options. Through a dear friend, we were introduced to Dr. Lee. From the start, we felt very comfortable with the doctor and his staff. They were always very warm and welcoming. He presented all of our options to us and was always available to answer our questions, of which were many.
Going through our fifth IUI, we had faith that it would be the one that worked. As a way to release some of the stress from the past year and a half, we went on a wonderful and relaxing Hawaiian vacation the week prior to our insemination. Upon returning, with open minds and desperate hearts, we went in one more time. Oddly, I only had one egg. Fortunately, it only takes one egg to produce a miracle.... and that it did.
Jake was born on April 21, 2004 weighing 9 pounds, 8 ounces and 21 inches long. Words cannot describe how a child has changed our lives. Each day has new meaning as we watch him develop new skills and discover the world around him. The undeniable trust this small being has for us, his parents, is enough to make us understand and accept our roles as his guardians and protectors.
Jake is the love of our life. He has a cheerful disposition with a smile to light up a room. At nine months, he is eating table foods and cruising around the house at every opportunity. He loves his parents and his best friend, Buffy, our family dog. He is curious, playful and imaginative. We know we have been blessed and are so thankful for him.
We want to thank Dr. Lee and his staff for helping create our lil' miracle. We look forward to starting the process all over again in the near future. We know the end result is well worth the painful process of getting there.
Brendan and Tracy
Thank you Dr. Lee for helping us having this wonderful boy in our life.
-Richard and Reciel
Dear Dr. Lee and Staff,
How does one begin to say thanks for all that has happened in our lives. Not only do we have a bundle of joy that now we can call our own, but have also filled a void in our lives. I guess you can say our prayers have been answered. We truly believe that Dr. Lee and staff were a Godsend in our lives.
We started our journey with Dr. Lee in 2004 and continued to see him through 2006. At that point we questioned God (as we all do at times). But ultimately, HE (God) knows what HE is doing. In the month of January of 2006, we got the good news that we were expecting and on November 21, 2006 we were blessed with little Alexander, coming in at whopping 8lbs, 1/2 oz and 21 inches long.
Our experience with Dr. Lee was truly a wonderful one. we would not change stinky diapers, all night crying, burping, sleepless nights, doctor visits for anything else in the world. Our bundle of joy is definitely an answer to prayer and also the expertise of Dr. Lee and staff.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Alex, Lydia, and big sister Crystal
Dr. Lee and Staff,
I never thought I would be sending you another letter of appreciation. We would like to thank you and your staff again for your support in completing our family.
On November 22, 2007 after being at work for only two hours, I started going into labor. I decided I could drive myself home. Being this was the day before Thanksgiving, I ran into a lot of traffic on the freeway. Soon before I knew it, my contractions were only 2 minutes apart. After braking almost ever traffic law, I ended up driving myself to the hospital and two hours later we welcomed Cort Jeffrey to the world.
Here are some pictures of Cort just hours old. Also, I enclosed some pictures of his older brother Cole, who is now 27 months old. Cole loves his little brother, and we can only thank you for helping them come into our lives. We will be forever grateful for your kindness and devotion you and your staff dedicated to us.
Denise and Jeff
We thank God and Dr. Lee for our beautiful son, Robert. After having a miscarriage, we tried getting pregnant for over a year and no success. We were referred to Dr. Lee for help after trying different methods and being unsuccessful. We were under his care for about two months when we found out we were expecting. It was a "WOW" experience. The entire staff are great, they are friendly, welcoming and understanding. Dr. Lee listened and was also very understanding and supportive.
We are truly grateful and happy for blessing us with our little Angel.
-Blanca and Javier
On February 23, 2007, at 4:53a.m., our son Jayden was born 5lbs, 13 oz., 19 inches. Jayden is such a happy baby and has bought immense joy to our lives! Although we definitely have more than our fair share of sleepless nights, dirty diapers and hour-long crying sessions, we appreciate everything parenthood offers because we have wanted it so badly for so long. We constantly tell others “when we see him smile, we know the journey was worthwhile.”
Our 3 year infertility journey was a short but blessed one with Dr. Lee and his staff. Our first and only fertility cycle (but 8th overall) with Fertility Care of Orange County gave us our first pregnancy. The entire time we were under Dr. Lee’s care, that’s exactly what we received ~ care… and understanding and renewed hope. We had such a wonderful experience with Dr. Lee and his staff that we confidently recommend him to others.
We understand the emotional rollercoaster that infertility thrusts upon couples and the daily struggles that are involved with dealing with infertility. Even though it seems like an uphill battle, with perseverance, faith and Dr. Lee, miracles do happen!
Thank you Dr. Lee and staff for genuinely caring, making an uncomfortable situation a wonderful experience, and for all you did to bring Jayden into our lives.
-Joyce and Alan
Our journey to parenthood began a little over 4 years ago when we decided to start a family. Over the next year and a half, we went through several artificial insemination, one of which produced a pregnancy, only disappointment and frustration.
Just when we thought doors were closing, we talked to a few friends about our journey and we were introduced to Fertility Care. We had heard of other couples who had faced similar disappointments and Fertility Care was there to help. Immediately we found the staff to be encouraging and offered us hope for our situation. Two IVFs (In Vitro Fertilization) later we became proud parents of our little miracle, Gabriel Peter, born on May 23rd. Since the day we found out we were pregnant we thank God for blessing us with our son, and for Dr. Lee and his wonderful staff. We appreciate all that has been done to allow us to become grateful parents of our little miracle.
Thank you Dr. Lee and staff!
-Phil and Debbie
Our life has completely changed since the birth of our son Vincent. We love everything about him. His chubby hands and feet, the way he smiles at us. He is the love of our life. Thank you Dr. Lee for filling the void and making our dream of having a child come true.
Our message to the countless others who suffer is that there is hope out there. Do not give up. We had the best experience with the staff of Fertility Care. The staff was extremely conscientious and helpful. Every question, no matter how small was treated with respect. Dr. Lee gave us hope and empowered us with knowledge. His care and guidance will never be forgotten.
-Rose and Vince
Thank you for helping us with our first child (Kaylee). We believe her birth enabled us to get pregnant this time with Kyle. Thank you for taking care of us for the first trimester. You guys are GREAT!!
-William and Janel
Our miracle!!! Gavin Carlos Marquez was born April 6, 2007. A very healthy boy!
I went to three Fertility clinics before choosing Dr. Terence Lee and his staff of wonderful girls. Dr. Lee and his staff always had an answer to my questions and made me feel as if we were all family and in perfect hands. I didn’t think I would get pregnant after so many doctors would inform me of my medical problems. After trying on our own for well over a year, we decided to seek help. We followed all of Dr. Lee steps and it all paid off!
I will never forget hearing those words of “positive.” I was walking the boardwalk of Santa Monica beach overlooking the ocean. One place that will never change with “age”.
Delivery was not bad at all. We taped every second! Gavin was born after 5 hours of vaginal labor.
Thank you with all our hearts!
Our nights are no longer quiet, our sleeping and eating patterns changes almost daily. We take turns with more clothing to wash, dishes to clean, not to mention the meals we’ve missed. When we are in the shower, our minds play tricks on us making us think we can hear his cries, yet he sleeps. We all come together and we look down into his crib and see those innocence eyes filled of love looking back at us. Our hearts break every time and we praise the Lord for his gift.
Born May 1st, 2007
7lbs, 12 oz
-Luz Maria and Hector
After 5 years of trying to conceive, we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy on January 19, 2007. Gavin Kai was born a healthy 6 pounds, 6 ounces with the assistance of in-Vitro Fertilization. Not a day passes without us giving thanks for such a miracle. For a couple who nearly gave us hope, Gavin is a wonderful reminder that with a lot of love, faith, and the assistance of medical technology, having children is very possible.
Dr. Lee and his exceptional staff have made our dream of having a child a reality. His professionalism and expertise is unquestionable, and his faith and optimism is unwavering. The staff that supports him is truly no different. You will never meet another team of professionals so dedicated to your cause. And when all is said and done, you will have forged a bond with the people who care most about your hopes and dreams of having a family.
So Dr. Lee and staff, we thank you for helping make our dreams come true. As a team, there is no better than all of you at Fertility Care of Orange County. And we look forward to sharing Gavin’s milestones with you in the months and years to come!
With sincere gratitude
-Justin, Larissa & Gavin Kai
Thank you so much for your help.
-Jenny and Davis
After four long years since we started trying to conceive we are thrill to announce the arrival of Brendan, our first born. Without the help and support of you and your friendly staff, we would not be such happy parents today. After two miscarriages, we were emotionally and physically drained. At the time we almost lost hope, it was your positive attitude and encouraging words that kept our hope alive. Thank you Dr. Lee for helping to bring Brendan to our world. We are forever grateful.
-Lisa and Jordan
After consulting with three other fertility doctors, we finally let comfortable to start treatment with Dr. Lee. Although my husband and I were both young and healthy, we could not get pregnant on our own. We had “unexplained infertility.” Dr. Lee and his staff were so professional and compassionate that we didn’t’ feel like patients, we felt like friends. We are so happy and thankful that with help from Dr. Lee, we finally got pregnant!! We now have a beautiful baby girl who brings us so much joy. Dr. Lee and staff made the IVF process actually enjoyable – which is hard to believe. We can’t thank God enough for bringing us to Dr. Lee. Our daughter is the greatest gift!
-Melinda and Dennis
Baby Daniel is a blessing to us and we will never forget how he came into our lives. He is 4 months old now and reaching, rolling, and laughing. There are challenges that we face but as new parents we all face them. He has brought new sunshine into our family that shines no matter what happens during the day or night. We are learning as all parents do to understand him and raise him to the best we can. This is just the beginning of our journey but we look forward with excitement as to what the future holds for us.
Thank you Dr. Lee and your loving, caring, supportive, and knowledgeable staff: Jessica, Mey, Andrea, Grace, and Afsheen…we are forever grateful to you all.
-Linda and Bryan, proud parents of Daniel
After being old that we wouldn’t be able to have any more children, we met Dr. Lee. We were planning on starting the process for invitro when, miraculously, we discovered we were expecting twins. Although one of the twins didn’t make it (vanishing twin syndrome), we now have a beautiful, healthy baby boy.
Thank you Dr. Lee and everyone in the office for your care and support.
-Taryn and Sean
Dr. Lee was great! He was very positive and great bedside! He helped us with both our children! I would give his name to anyone who has fertility problems.
Dear Dr. Lee and your wonderful team at Fertility Care,
I never could have imagined that after having an uncomplicated and successful pregnancy in 1999/2000 that subsequent attempts to grow our family would be filled with such heartache and disappointment. Even after years of trying to get pregnant, a late term loss and months of trying, my doctor continuously told me that nothing was wrong and that I should just keep trying to get pregnant. At 37 years-old I knew that with each passing month my odds of having a healthy pregnancy were getting worse so at last I decided to take the initiative and explore fertility specialists. I am so thankful that I found you and your staff at Fertility Care. I will always remember that first one hour consultation with you as you were so compassionate in listening to my story and providing me with information that gave me hope. Now just over one year later I have a beautiful baby boy snuggled in a baby carrying sling against me as I write to thank you and your staff.
Almost a full six years after having our daughter we are experiencing the joy of parenting a new baby again. There is nothing in the world quite like holding your baby in your arms as he stares in your eyes, smiles and then slowly falls off to sleep. We know we have so many more wonderful experiences to look forward to along the way and we thank you for helping us so we get to experience all of it a second time around.
-Sonia and Wayne
We’d like to thank Dr. Lee and his staff for helping us become parents. We followed the doctor’s instructions and were blessed with a beautiful baby boy-Logan. We tried to get pregnant for 5 years and turned to Dr. Lee for help. Soon we became parents. This is a great experience and we are looking into having another baby.
-Shawn and Araceli
We would like to send a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Lee and his entire staff. Every member of his staff was so warm and caring at every visit. Dr. Lee gave us hope when other doctors told us IVF was the only way we would conceive. We conceived on the third round of IUI and we have a full term baby boy born without any problems or complications. We love being parents and would not be here without Dr Lee’s help.
Thank you Dr. Lee and all the girls at the front. We appreciate your kindness and the bundle of joy you have given us.
-Amit and Meera
My husband Chris and I were high school sweethearts who married in 2003 after about 7 years of dating. We had enjoyed many happy times together and decided shortly after we purchased our house that it was time to share our happiness and love with a baby. Two years passed without any luck. We were getting very discouraged and started to fear that the family we had longed for would never be complete. After unsatisfactory results with my regular OB/GYN. Chris and I decided to consult with Dr. Lee. Right away we had a great feeling about the Fertility Care center. Dr. Lee and his staff were very warm, courteous and professional. After carefully ruling out individual fertility complications with my husband and myself. Dr. Lee recommended that we try artificial insemination. On February 20th 2008 we gave it our first shot and it worked! We were so excited and it gave us a good feeling to know that Dr. Lee and his staff were genuinely excited for us. After a great pregnancy, Chris and I welcomed our baby Owen into the world of October 19th 2008. Though tired, we couldn’t be happier. I won’t hesitate to call Dr. Lee if we need help with baby #2.
Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!
-Chris and Shawna
During the infertility process it is important to stay positive and healthy. Patients should be proactive and involved in every aspect of the process. Both parents need to be on the same page and supportive and patient with each other. The rewards are great.
Now that Le and I are parents all the difficulty and expense of infertility treatments has been worth it. Gian is a happy baby that really goes with the flow. He only cries when he is hungry or sleepy. He enjoys being with people and smiles all the time. We are excited to watch his changes and developments.
More importantly, I have learned more about myself and what matters most---life. Nothing is that important to be angry or upset about and work---especially my work---will always be there.
Thank you Fertility Care!
-Dwana and Le
We came to Dr. Lee knowing that as older parents, our chances for success were considerably diminished. Having just experienced a miscarriage only 5 months earlier, we were nervous. Dr. Lee explained our options and what we were facing. To say the least, we were anxious but excited. With less than a 3% chance of success, we got pregnant on the very first try with AI. Nine months later, we were blessed with the arrival of our beautiful daughter Isabella. She was a very healthy 7lbs., 12oz., and measured 20" in length. We thank our lucky stars, God and of course Dr. Lee.
As Isabella has grown and changed, we can only think how very fortunate we were. Thank you Dr. Lee and many thanks to your wonderful staff! When we are ready to try again, Dr. Lee will be our "Go-To" Guy!
With Our Sincerest Appreciation,
Marc, Debbie, and Isabella
We thought we had the "American Dream". A great marriage, successful careers, a beautiful home, and a healthy wonderful extended family. We decided to add the final touch and have a baby. Well, it wasn't as easy as we thought. After several months of trying, and a fear of infertility treatments, we were still unsuccessful.
We were referred to Dr. Lee for further treatment. The minute we met him, he gave us hope. After just a short period of infertility treatments, I was pregnant! Dr. Lee's devotion, patience, positive attitude, truly caring approach, and a little modern medicine, gave us a baby.
Dr Lee shared our happiness and anticipation for our new family addition. Following a healthy, fulfilling pregnancy, God gave us our beautiful daughter Samantha on Thanksgiving night 2000. Everyday we thank God for our gift! We hope to see Dr. Lee soon for round 2!!
-Peter and Carla
Our lives have been given new meaning as we learn to become parents to our little girl. We tried to get pregnant for over a year and at the age of 32 that is quite nerve racking. Each month brought more tears and frustration. We saw a doctor before Dr. Lee and were treated like we were bystanders in the making of our own child. After almost giving up, we were referred to Dr. Lee. Immediately we regained hope. There is nothing like the feeling of them handing you your baby for the first time. All of the tears of frustration and sadness are replaced with tears of joy. We are so happy that we did not give up, as now we have our wonderful little one. Thank you Dr. Lee and all his staff for helping us bring her into the world.
Kristin and Matt
Words cannot express the joy of being a mother for the first time. And I believe the love and care I have for this little girls is extra deep and special because of the obstacles I went through to have her. The pain and disappointment time after time of a negative test result was so torturing when it seemed like everyone else in the world around me was pregnant, having babies and so happy. My prayers were answered after three long years when I went to consult with Dr. Lee and my infertility due to Endometriosis.
My first meeting with him raised my hopes and gave me confidence once again. Dr. Lee is such a caring person and made me feel like he truly cared about my desire to have a refreshing and in the end, exactly what we needed to get pregnant. Yes, the long weeks and months of medications, self-injections and emotional turmoil was difficult to say the least, buy I can honestly say that I would do it all over again and will once we are ready for a second child. You know how they say that women almost instantly forget the pain of labor once they hold that little baby in their arms? Well the same is true with the infertility experience. What I remember is the pregnancy because I treasured every moment of being pregnant and never took any of the nausea, aching back and swollen feet for granted.As I write my testimonial at midnight, while my daughter sleeps soundly in the next room; until at least 4:30a.m., I can't take my mind off her, I see her in my dreams, I can smell her breath with every inhale I take, I feel her presence in my heart and I now know what unconditional love is.
When I watch my husband hold our daughter and see her smile at his funny faces, my heart swells and I say to myself, God has fulfilled our life with His miracle, our little girl, Alessandra Victoria. Thank you Dr. Lee for being His vessel.
Alfred and Anastasia
Dr. Lee and the staff at Fertility Care were instrumental in helping us achieve and maintain our pregnancy. Despite minor challenges on our end, you never gave up hope and were there for us around the clock when necessary. We are so grateful you have enabled us to become first time parents and hope to call on you for assistance on the next pregnancy. Thank you again for all the joy you have brought to our lives.
We are enjoying all the smiles, noises and expressions from our little girl. It's exciting being home with her and starting our new life together as a family. It's been fun as the days go by trying to decide if she looks more like mommy or daddy. We are so grateful to have a happy and healthy baby girl. Thanks again! P.S. It was a long ordeal going through the infertility treatments and so challenging each month without a successful pregnancy but despite all we went through, we are just that much more appreciative in the end. I believe what we went through just makes a stronger bond as a family that does not take for granted the miracle of life.
William and Janel
Infertility was a very scary experience. I cannot describe how happy we are that we went to Dr. Lee and did IVF. We were very lucky that it worked the first time. Thank you Dr. Lee and staff for all your help, guidance, and support.
Heather and Eric
Being referred to Dr. Lee's office was a blessing. In just one month, I was pregnant and looking forward to parenthood!! Dr. Lee's office visits were always a pleasant and cheerful experience. I was always seen on time and was usually out of the office in half and hour. The office staff was very courteous and friendly.
Because of Dr. Lee, we are once again blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Aminah. She is the star of our life and we smile every day just seeing her precious smile.
Thank you Dr. Lee for giving us hope and laughter in our daily lives!!!
Munir and Shabnam
Ashley is just wonderful. We love her so much. Dr. Lee was such a great help and we would recommend him to our friends.
After three years of trying to conceive, we decided to visit a fertility doctor. Dr. Terence Lee was a highly recommended for his expertise and professionalism. We had a wonderful experience with Dr. Lee because he was pleasant, efficient, and encouraging during my infertility treatment. His optimistic attitude helped me during times I had doubts about me ever becoming pregnant.
Today, we are proud parents of a baby girl. Fortunately, after only one embryo transfer, I became pregnant. We are elated about being parents and we do not take anything for granted. Two months after our daughter's birth, we still can't believe we are parents. As she grows, it is exciting for us to see what new facial expression she will make to us and discover which parent she looks like morel. Each day she is with us we grow more accustomed to her routine with less anxiety and more comfort. This year we went to the Pumpkin Patch Farm with our new daughter dressed in a pumpkin outfit. We had a wonderful time taking pictures of her at the different decorating areas in the farm. We enjoyed our day at the farm because it was a kid's event that we can now be apart of with our daughter.
Our lives have changed but for the better. We look forward to attend kid's event such as story times at our local children's bookstore and joining MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers). We know our daughter is truly a gift and we constantly shower her with hugs and kisses.

Dr. Lee, Thank you for your help in creating this beautiful bundle of joy that has made my life so wonderful. Everyday now I wake up to her with a big smile on my face. I thought having a child would be a difficult and heart-wrenching process, but with your help, my little miracle was possible. I was surprised at how quick as well. I love being a mom and plan to do it again in a year.
Thank you Fertility Care for helping us in achieving a successful pregnancy.
Dr. Lee is my third fertility doctor and I am grateful for his help. He made sure I had the best chance. The whole team at Fertility Care is awesome. They are very supportive throughout my whole treatment.

Thank you! Thank you!

After trying to get pregnant for 2 years, Dr. Lee and his staff helped us and kept our confidence up through the whole process. We were so impressed with the dedication of Dr. Lee. He and his staff were there for us from day one all the way to our 12th week of pregnancy. We now have a beautiful baby girl. We extend our gratitude to Dr. Terence Lee! I would have stayed with him through the whole pregnancy if I could have. There is no doubt that if and when we need assistance again we will visit Dr. Lee.
- Cindy and Charles
After more than three years of trying to get pregnant and two failed IVF cycles with another doctor, my husband and I were referred to Dr. Lee by a friend.
As soon as we walked into his office we felt so relaxed and completely at ease. He helped give us confidence and hope again.
We were so blessed to get pregnant on our first cycle with Dr. Lee and welcomed our daughter, Ava Christina into the world on June 17, 2006. She truly is our precious miracle. Everyday is a blessing to have her in our lives.
When Ava was 6 months old, we decided to try for another child with Dr. Lee and were so excited to become pregnant again. Our second child is due this November.
Thank you Dr. Lee and you wonderful staff for helping make our dreams become a reality.

Our experience with Fertility Care in
Kyra has a wonderful sense of humor. She is always smiling and brightens up any room. She is extremely advanced for her age. She loves animals and spending time with not only her mom and dad but her friends and her families. She is amazing without exaggeration. I, of course, could go on and on about how proud we are of her but I’ll refrain for the purpose of not taking up too much space here.
We owe everything to Dr. Lee and his
They have made us feel very special.
They’re all very welcoming and discreet at the same time.
We are looking forward to having a second child conceived
with Fertility Care’s assistance in the next few months.
If you are considering fertility treatments look no
further. Dr. Terence
Lee is your doctor for all your fertility needs.
Good luck to you and remember to have faith.
Dreams do come true in the form of a little person to
call your own beginning with a little help from an office in

It’s been a blessing to be able to have our little Isabella. We are very happy and pleased with the procedure that allowed us to have our little baby girl. Thank you for all your help and support in granting us this wonderful gift.

My husband and I come from large families so it came as a complete surprise when we found out that we are among the couples facing infertility. First we were relieved to find out that there was a medical reason why we had been unsuccessful conceiving “naturally.” But when the circumstances of our situation sank in, we went through several phases of the emotional cycle that many infertile couples go through. We were sad that it happened to us. We were resentful at all of the seemingly “accidental” pregnancies happening everywhere around us. We were anxious about the limited options that remained. We even became a little alarmist, immediately gravitating towards the worse case scenario: what if we could never have children?
Secretly, every woman cries at the notion of not being able to have children. At first, I didn’t think I would. In fact, I didn’t know I longed to be a mother until I realized that there was a chance we may not be successful at conceiving through IVF. But what I learned going through IVF is that you have to do a lot of soul searching before you begin this journey. You will need to be at peace with the notion that you’re capable of living a fulfilling life without having children of your own, should that be the final outcome. And you should resolve in advance with your husband how much you are willing to invest, not dollars per se but emotional capital. And most importantly, you should let yourself cry because that may be the only way you can completely surrender to the journey you are about to take.
Thanks to Dr. Lee and his wonderful staff, we feel incredibly blessed that we now have a baby girl, who has enriched our lives in ways we couldn’t imagine. Every time I look at her, I see all of the hope and love my husband and I devoted into her conception. But conception of a child wasn’t the only positive outcome from this journey. Looking back, I can now say that our journey made us stronger individuals and drew us closer as a couple. It’s only natural that you get blinded by a single goal going through IVF. However, had we not succeeded in IVF, we felt we succeeded in discovering each other again. And that in itself is worth the journey.
-Katie and Rick
We started as a frustrating and disappointing experience of trying to conceive turned to relief and understanding with the support and guidance by Dr. Terry Lee. Thank you for helping us bring a beautiful little baby girl into our lives.
-Amanda and Dax
To: Dr. Lee and Staff,
Rebecca was born on August 1, 2009, 6 pounds, 12 ounces, 19 inches. We both want to thank you and your wonderful staff for help making our little princess!!
-Christi and Don
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you’ve done for Mike and me. We had such an amazing experience with you and your staff. I was sad to have to leave and go to my OB/GYN. Though I truly love Dr. Christina Lee, I cannot say enough about the way we were treated by your office. It was like having another family. Everyone was always so friendly and helpful I have a few friends whom I have recommended to see you. I know some of them aren’t quite ready to ask for help but I highly encouraged them to at least speak with you. Thanks to my experience I can feel confident to give people I care about a doctor who can be trusted. Thank you again for the amazing experience. God Bless.
-Michelle and Michael
Learning that we wouldn’t be able to conceive a child without help was heartbreaking. We always knew we wanted babies and thought it would be easy when we were ready. This not being the case we decided to inquire about fertility assistance and that’s when we were referred to Dr. Lee. This was the best decision of our lives as now we are the proud parents of a perfect and beautiful baby girl. Although we had to go through three cycles of treatment and the disappointment of not conceiving twice, I would (and will) do it again. I’ve learned never to give up hope and always wish for the best. Thanks to Dr. Lee and his team of very capable assistants our dreams have come true.
Thank you Fertility Care!
-Norma and Jesse
With much delight we forward the attached letter. As you know this was our 3rd attempt of IVF, after failing twice at another respected IVF program. So, when my doctor referred me to you, we were unsure as to whether to try again. The emotional as well as financial commitment is enormous. We did not know if we could endure another 'negative' pregnancy test, but we so much wanted a family. But fortunately, after considerable thought, soul-searching and financial planning we decided to try again under your care. Alexandra Grace and Clayton Barnett are 2 1/2 years old now. They are beautiful, intense, charming and bright. We will be forever grateful for your expertise, guidance brilliance and the devotion you dedicated to us.
Jon & Tracy
Thanks to Dr. Lee we are a happy family. He helped make our dream come true. We are very happy with our babies. There is nothing else in this world that can give us this happiness!
I tried for 10 years to have babies and now I have twins and it is the best!It's fun having twins because everywhere we go we feel like movie stars. Everybody wants to touch them or smile at them. At restaurants, we get special treatment and waiters give us big tables for the car seats.We were so scared to have twins, but now I love my life much more. Everything I went through was worth it!
Thank you Dr. Lee and Staff,
Joel and Sandra
Our 2nd set of twins were born on June 17, 2005. We now have 4 children under the age of 2 years old. Just 3 years ago our life was so different. At one point I thought we would never have children. Many days our life is very chaotic and I'm very overwhelmed, but my children are miracles. Being the parents of 4 children is very difficult at times, but it is also very rewarding.
Although our fertility problems were difficult to go through, it was well worth all the struggle. I would gladly go through it all again. We are very grateful to Dr. Lee and his staff for all their help and support!
Rosalie and Gary
Our family has grown from a party of three to a party of five! And we couldn't be happier! Of course we are exhausted chasing our 2 ½ year old and caring for our newborn twins at the same time. But we can't imagine life without our three boys! Thank to Dr. Lee and the supportive staff at Fertility Care we are proud parents. Your help with our situation has made our dreams come true. A simple thank you doesn't quit seem enough - you are all appreciated greatly!
Thank you, thank you, and thank you again!!
-Alex and Lisa
As you know, we had tried for 7 years after the birth of our first daughter to have a second child. We had already worked with another fertility specialist with no success. Secondary infertility isn't often talked about and we had almost given up. We were referred to your office and you were extremely professional and realistic with us. We made the decision to attempt IVF, and are happy to let you know that Claire and Michael arrived safely on August 11, 2005.Your office staff, the nurses, and the embryologist were all so kind and supportive throughout our entire pregnancy and all the ups and downs. Thank you for completing our family!
Bill and Katherine
We would like to thank Dr. Lee and the wonderful staff at Fertility Care for helping us conceive our daughters. We had many more difficulties getting pregnant this second time around and we are grateful for his expertise.
Cathy and Dan
We started out with a few obstacles, i.e. husband had vasectomy many years ago and I had diabetes and high blood pressure. With Dr. Lee's help, we are now proud parents to a girl and boy - fraternal twins! Katherine was born at 31 weeks and 1 day at 2lbs 14 oz. and Maximus at 31 weeks and 1 day at 4lbs 2 oz. on 5/15/2005. They were in NICU for approx. 6 weeks and came home healthy. Katherine had no problems at all but Max ha PDA and was treated with Indocin® and was on a ventilator for approximately 1 week - but all is well now!
Katherine is now a whopping 20lbs and Max at 22lbs.! They just had their 1st Birthday and are advancing so quickly now!
Thanks so much Dr. Lee and Fertility Care.
Tina and Daniel
After being married for two years, we decided to start a family. But after 6 months of trying to get pregnant, we decided to see Dr. Lee on May 2005. We imagined our initial consultation to be very awkward. But after talking to Dr. Lee, we felt very comfortable. He immediately ordered a series of lab tests. By the first week of July, Dr. Lee confirmed that we're expecting. On February 14, 2006 (Valentine's Day), we welcomed our two healthy babies, Matthew and Amanda.
We're so grateful to Dr. Lee who helped complete our family. Today, we cannot imagine our lives without our twins. We THANK Dr. Lee and his staff who have been very helpful and emotionally supportive to us.
Marie and Fred
Thank you! Thank you!
- Liz and Tim
Hi Dr. Lee,
Logan and Lily are 5 months now. Everyday I look at them and tears come to my eyes how blessed we are for them. After the countless procedures and complicated pregnancy, it was all worth it!
Thank you Dr. Lee and your wonderful staff for everything. We have our miracle children.
Lien and Thanh
Having a baby was something we wanted more than anything in this world. After going through infertility for three years it felt like our lives were incomplete without a little person to share everything with. Seeing children playing at the park made us sad and we thought that we would never become parents.
Dr. Lee and his staff gave us hope and support. Dr. Lee always had time to talk to us and give us individual attention. The girls were always there to greet us with smiles and offered much needed emotional support. It was as if they became our friends.
Having Joshua and Jared made our lives complete. There's nothing sweeter than when our babies look into our eyes and smile at us. It just warms our heart. Dr. Lee, you helped make our dreams come true and we truly thank you.
Jeannie and Ray
Thanks to the care and expertise of Dr. Lee and his wonderful staff. We now have 2 beautiful baby girls. They were born in perfect health on 9/28/2006 with Emily at 4 lbs, 15 oz and Kaely at 4lbs, 5 oz. We are so glad we have twins, otherwise, we would be fighting over who gets to hold the baby. We are so thankful and happy they are in our lives. Each time they smile, it just melts our hearts. We feel like we've hit the jackpot with these two precious babies.
It was a difficult battle, emotionally and financially, but it was all worth it!!! We can't thank Dr. Lee and his staff enough for making our family complete.
-Hanh and Tom
To Dr. Lee
I would like to say "Thank you" for making it happen with the most advanced and updated technology you provided along with the BEST SERVICE by your entire staff. We were able to bring Nathan and Landon to this world on July 6th, 2007. Again, I would like to offer you my big "Thank you" to you and your staff.
-Kenny and Leslie
To Dr. Lee
After turning 38 and still single, I knew that I wanted a family even if it meant having a child on my own. So, after researching my options, I found myself at Dr. Lee’s fertility care office. I feel fortunate that I found Dr. Lee and his wonderful staff because I felt that they would do everything in their power to make my dream of having a child come true. Two tries in I found myself (miraculously) pregnant with not just one baby but two! Sawyer and Nathan are the joys of my life. I can never thank Dr. Lee or his staff enough for my blessings. Thank you from my whole heart, you have given me precious children and a reason for living.
We feel extremely blessed to have two healthy babies. Aliyah Georgia and Connor Richard were born September 5, 2009. They are now 5 weeks old. After trying to conceive for a year, I was frustrated with my HMO doctors who said I had nothing. Dr. Lee accurately diagnosed me and helped us conceive after our first treatment of clomid/injectables/IUI. We are so glad we decided to see Dr. Lee because our life has forever changed with our two miracles. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience and treatment than the one we received under your care.
-Richard and Araceli
We can’t thank you enough!! From the beginning everyone has been great! Going into this hoping for one and getting two was a complete surprise and bonus.
Without Dr. Lee and his staff we wouldn’t have our little boys.
-Angie and Joe
We want to thank Dr. Lee and his staff for our wonderful experience. Our family grew from 2 to 5 over night and we couldn't be happier. With the constant ups and downs, Dr. Lee's office made it a positive experience. Dr. Lee was always positive and never willing to give up.
After going through 4 years of infertility with another doctor, Dr. Lee was successful after 3 months of treatment. We can't thank him enough for how happy we are, and we have referred him to many people!
-Amy and Ryan
After 3 ½ years of trying to conceive my 2nd child, we were referred by a friend to call Dr. Lee. Dr. Lee and his staff were amazing. They were friendly and sympathetic to my situation. After being diagnosed, we knew that there was light under the tunnel. My husband has a low sperm count. I had an infected left tube and my right tube was blocked. They removed my left tube and cleared my right. I did 2 artificial inseminations and was unsuccessful in getting pregnant. We decided to do IVF. They put 4 embryos and I took. We were so happy. Finally, a positive pregnancy test after all these years of trying. At 19 weeks, I went on bed rest due to a short cervix. I had a cerclage put in by my OB. It was removed at 36th weeks and at 37th weeks I gave birth to a healthy baby boy. If it wasn't for Dr. Lee and his amazing staff this would have not been possible. Thank you to Dr. Lee for your hard work and dedication to the fertility challenged. My son Nick is so happy to finally be a big brother.
Helene and Chris
Dear Dr. Lee:
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
Jason and Jenny
When our medical office referred us to Dr. Lee in January of 2003, we had no idea how awesome our lives would be! God has blessed us so richly through the willing hands of Dr. Lee and his amazing staff!
We began treatment for IUI and after the 3rd month we became pregnant! After so many months of negative in-home pregnancy tests, we couldn't believe we were going to be parents. We were consumed with tears of joy! With a worry free pregnancy, our first son, Joe David, was born on Feb. 10th, 2004, as healthy as could be. Once he started sleeping through the night we were ready to try again!
Since we were no longer living in California, we flew to California to go to back to Dr. Lee. We knew there was fertility treatment where we were living, but no one as compassionate, aggressive and understanding as Fertility Care.
We tried a couple months of IUI and when that didn't take, we tried IVF. Our first month we found out GOD entrust us with another little one. Our second son, Kayden Daniel, born on Oct. 22, 2005, is another precious gift!
We are daily blessed by these 2 miracles and know that is may not have been possible without Dr. Lee and his willingness to help others. We eagerly await an opportunity to be able to go back to Dr. Lee Maybe a couple of girls this next time! God has ordained our every step and we are so thankful to Dr. Lee and his staff!
Loving our family,
Joe and Lynell
