Letters from Patients

◆ Thanks to Oak and ICSI, I now have two children! Both pregnancies were tough, including requiring a lot of bed rest, but I am really happy to have a life with children, which is something I never thought possible due to my irregular menstrual cycle. I'm 41 years old and I'm physically tough, but I’m happy when caring for my children tires me out! It’s all thanks to the support of doctors and staff, thank you so much. I hope you all take care of yourself.
