This doctor was not open to discussion any options. He told me my ONLY chance at a child would be to use donor eggs. He was not even open to discussing my other options even if their probability of success was small. I left the office in hysterical tears (which no one seemed to care about). Thank God I dug up a little hope and saw another doctor in another city. I now have a happy healthy baby from my own egg!!!

After years of trying, Dr. Diaz helped us realize our dream of having a baby and my husband and I are very thankful to him. He's really good with his patients, attentive, helps you feel relax and explains thoroughly any questions you ask. Overall, we had a good experience with him and his staff.

After a failed IFV cycle with another Dr and being totally devastated, I reached out to Dr. Diaz after seeing his Second Opinion offer on his website. I figured I had nothing to lose. My fertility journey was not an easy one, but the entire staff at West Coast Fertility helped me through it. I had several unsuccessful IVF cycles and had pretty much decided to give up. Dr. Diaz was able to give me referrals to both a counselor and the Fertility Fitness program. I needed to get myself together and figure out what my next steps were going to be. I took a short break from treatments while meeting with both the counselor and Elaine Wang of the Fertility Fitness program. I worked on reducing stress, eating habits and my general well being. My entire journey took nearly 2 years. I didn't even realize that I had so much to work on to get to where I am today. After several failed IVF cycles and really working on myself, I had finally gotten much more grounded and centered. I was much more at peace with myself, career and life in general after working with the Fertility Fitness program and counselor that Dr. Diaz introduced me to. The entire staff at West Coast Fertility could see the positive change in me. I decided to give it one more LAST try. If that didn't work, I was mentally ready to move forward and accept life without ever becoming a mother. I can happily say that the LAST try was a miracle and success. I am 25 weeks pregnant and all testing on the baby has been completed. I am on my way to having a healthy baby boy and becoming a mother. I could not have done this without the assistance of the entire West Coast Fertility team. Everyone put up with my ups and downs. They were so understanding and caring throughout my journey. The next steps were always explained very clearly. Dr. Diaz would alter the protocol after each failed cycle to increase my chances. All my questions were always answered, and someone was always available if I had any questions even late at night or over the weekend whether it was through email or the phone. I had been to two other Fertilty Dr.s before, but I found the staff at West Coast Fertilty to be the most caring. It felt much more like part of my family than just a Dr.s office. Overall, it just took a lot of patience, but in the end everything has turned out the way it was suppose to. Thank you West Coast Fertility for getting me to where I am today. I look forward to the day when I can come visit all of you with my little guy.

Kind, Informative, Personable,

Dr. Diaz was much more approachable and kind-hearted than a couple of other REs we had seen. We appreciated his openness and kind bedside manner. Follow up was timely and informative as well, and with all the stress of IVF treatment, his treatment and his staff made it more than bearable. They were truly rooting for us, and were very excited with us when our first try was a success.

More about Dr. David G Diaz

During Dr. Diaz's Gynecological training program at the University of Missouri, he developed an interest the treatment of infertility during training in endometriosis surgery, uterine reconstruction for fibroids, tubal repair and all aspects of vaginal surgery. He established the first microsurgical laboratory for training resident physicians and medical students in the technique of microsurgical unification for tubal repair. His mentor, Dr. William Griffin, encouraged him to pursue advanced fellowship training. Dr. Diaz was awarded a two year Fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology at Harvard Medical School, Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. His training was supervised by Dr. Melvin Taymor, whose team of scientists achieved the first IVF pregnancy in New England (1984). Dr. Taymor was responsible for introducing the use of the fertility drug Pergonal to the United States in collaboration with Dr. Bruno Lunenfeld from Israel. Dr. Diaz performed research in the development of medication protocols for IVF that led to one of the highest pregnancy rates in the nation. At Harvard, Dr. Diaz was taught the art and science of in-vitro fertilization at Boston IVF, the largest private IVF clinic in the world. The training program at Harvard was complemented by specialty training in the area of reproductive surgery. One of the most memorable aspects of Dr. Diaz%u2019 training was the intensive exposure to advanced laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery under the tutelage of Dr. Robert Hunt , a world authority in fertility enhancement surgery, whose inspiration led to the publication of several chapters in the classic textbook: Atlas of Female Fertility Surgery. Dr. Diaz%u2019 enthusiasm in surgery led to a European experience when he was invited to Kiel, West Germany by Professor Kurt Semm, the inventor of many laparoscopic instruments still routinely used today. Teaching was an integral part of the Fellowship Program. Dr. Diaz was appointed to the teaching staff at Harvard Medical School as Instructor in Obstetrics and Gynecology with an emphasis in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. Teaching was a passion of Dr. Diaz since he minored in education at Loyola University in Chicago. The Harvard teaching duties included Grand Rounds presentation, informal teaching of medical students and OB/GYN residents plus mentoring visiting students from around the world. Dr. Diaz%u2019 enthusiasm for teaching continues in private practice providing tutorials for visiting physicians, nurses, representatives from industry and most importantly educating his patients at West Coast Fertility Centers.
