I regret the day I ever met Dr. Diaz....

I REGRET THE DAY I EVER MET DR. DIAZ. I froze my eggs with Dr. Diaz when I was in my mid-30s in hopes of using these eggs to have kids once I met my husband. I did eventually get married a few years later and decided to save my frozen eggs for baby #2 since I was still young enough to do IVF with my own eggs. We were successful in having a healthy baby via IVF at another clinic. When I was ready for baby #2, we approached Dr. Diaz to use my frozen eggs. However, we had some complications during my son’s delivery that concerned Dr. Diaz. Dr. Diaz asked me to complete a series of tests and get a recommendation from a high risk OB. I spend over $1,500 to get Dr. Diaz all the tests that he wanted including paying his $150 consultation fee. The test results came back normal. The letter of recommendation from a respected high risk OBGYN (who was present during the delivery of my son) stated that I was very healthy and the risk was less than 20% of this complication occurring again, so no real reason I couldn’t move forward with Baby #2. After I sent Dr. Diaz the test results and letter of recommendation, he wouldn’t return any of my phone calls and would only communicate via email (after multiple attempts to reach him). I was shocked because he had never treated me like this before. These eggs were slow frozen. Dr. Diaz was a pioneer in slow-freezing at the time when I froze my eggs (2007). However, that method quickly became obsolete and surpassed by vitrification, because slow freezing can severely damage the eggs leading to low pregnancy rates. I met with five clinics that specialize in egg freezing and they all said they are no longer slow freezing eggs. They all recommended that I go back to the clinic that froze my eggs (Dr. Diaz), since his clinic is really my only option for getting pregnancy with these eggs. Dr. Diaz knew this and even after months of pleading with him since he was my only hope, he still turned me away and essentially ruined my chances of having another baby. I could only find one other clinic (USC Fertility) that had very limited recent experience with slow frozen eggs. As everyone predicted, they were unsuccessful at creating healthy embryos with these eggs and was not able to get me pregnant. I wasted over $25K freezing my eggs with Dr. Diaz for NOTHING, not including the money spend at USC. Plus, I relied on these eggs as a back-up plan when I was younger and wasted precious time. My husband is not open to adoption or donor eggs, so my son with never experience the joy of a sibling. I’m in my mid 40’s and my own eggs are no longer viable. I feel lucky to have my son, and it is the only thing that keeps me from going into a deep depression over what Dr. Diaz did to me. I trusted Dr. Diaz and he completely let me down. I don’t want another woman to go through the pain that I am feeling right now. If you are thinking about freezing your eggs, please stay clear away from Dr. Diaz and his clinic, West Coast Fertility Center. I highly recommend freezing eggs with an established clinic with good success rates that only uses vitrification for freezing eggs. This way you have more options when you are ready to thaw your eggs in case a doctor does this to you. Almost all clinics use vitrification now. Dr. Diaz only does slow freezing at his clinic. BEWARE of DR. DIAZ who is not trustworthy, honest or ethical.
