-Thanks, Dr. Brody!
Hi, everyone!
I'll be 1 year old on August 8, and this is how big I've gotten. I can't walk yet, but I'll be running after my big sister in no time. I keep my Mom on her toes, and I'm definitely a Daddy's boy. My favorite things are cats and watching Teletubbies. Hope you like my picture.

Love, Matthew



We are so thankful for this blessing

- A gift from God, you and your staff

Dear Dr. Brody (Anne, Kaylinn, Michelle, Maggie, Debra & Lisa),

We just wanted to thank you for your excellent care. We feel very fortunate to have found you. This IVF experience has been so different from the prior experiences we had... We always knew we were getting the best possible care with you as our doctor. We appreciate everything you have done for us. We are only sorry that we didn't find you sooner...

...We cannot tell you how much we appreciate everyone in your office. You could not find a better staff. It is rare these days to get such great service from a doctor's office.

We a so grateful to all of you for all that you have done for us, and we are so excited!!!!

...Thank you Again

Dr. "B"

We're not sure how to begin to thank you? But we are sure that God creates the miracles and He sometimes uses special people to deliver them. You are definately that person.

We have been truely blessed through this entire experience. Begining with Charity's sweet and welcoming voice from our 1st through every proceding call. Then Kaylinn and her genuine concern and encouragement helped us along every step & visit - it was like coming to see a friend. Then of course you Dr. "B" were very confident about our situation giving us hope. You were very thorough about explaining everything with us giving us your quality time - never making us feel rushed and unimportant.

We truely appreciate the unique gift God has bestowed upon you as you have made a tremendous impact on our lives!

Thank you & God Bless,

Mike, Kerri, Baby A & B



Dear Dr. Brody,

It's because of your talents and effort that I've been assigned the happy task of writing this note. I don't know how we can possibly thank you for making our dreams come true!

God Bless you and your laser!

Dear Dr. Brody,

Thank you for your help throughout the past 2 years that led to a successful outcome of my past surgeries. I had a C-section on 04/02/97 due to a placenta previa but the baby is a healthy little girl...

...Again thank you from the heart from Syona, Mike & I.



Dear Dr. Brody,

I can't thank you enough for the excellent care given me during my stay in San Diego area. Ron & I really appreciate you meeting my needs, and so quickly, too, and above all, with the kindness and compassionate spirit shown.

I am absolutely pain free! Front and back, and it is so wonderful!

Thanks again, for everything; and I must mention that you have an absolutely wonderful nurse - Joy. She made me feel so comfortable, with her smile and caring ways. If she ever wants to move where the air is clean & skies are blue - she can count on a job in Grand Junction!

My best to you, Marti


Dear Dr. Brody, Elizabeth & Staff,

Cher Docteur Brody,

Tout va bien. Vous avez ete formidable.

Merci pour tout.





Dr. Brody,

On October 7th at 5:21 a.m. our dreams came true. Adam weighed in at 7lbs 2oz. and was 20 inches long. He had a little problem coming into the world because the cord was wrapped around his neck a couple of times - but once he was delivered, he was fine. We call him our little piglet because he eats so much. At his 2mo. checkup he weighed 13lbs 4oz. and was 24 inches. Ironically, Piglet is his favorite; on the border that is on the picture he looks at Piglet and just smiles & laughs.

Having Adam has enriched our lives in so many ways, we'll never be able to thank you enough for all of your help.

Not only do you touch people's lives - but you change the world, for the better, one couple at a time.

Greetings Dr. Brody

Thought you might like some pictures of Ben. He was born on April 9 and weighed 3lbs 7.6ozs. As with our daughter, Amanda, Ben was in a rush to get out. His due date was May 30th. After a four week stay at Sharp-Mary Birch NICU, heÕs home and healthy. The last weighing came in at 7lbs. and change.

Thanks again for everything.

Rich, Linda, Amanda, and Ben
