“A small paragraph does not give justice to how appreciative and blessed my husband and I were to have Connie by our side during this most stressful and emotional time in our lives. Without all of her words of encouragement, and willingness to sit by my side through my tears just to listen, I truly felt like she understood what we were going through. I felt hopeful after our talks and really felt the words she spoke to me “you are not your diagnosis.”

After talking with Connie about overall well-being, mind, body and spirit, I approached the 2nd round of IVF with a different mindset. I practiced a healthy lifestyle with my diet and exercise, relied on my spiritual beliefs for support, as well as my husband and Connie. My stress level decreased and I was able to focus on myself and the positives of even being able to get this 2nd chance at a miracle.

With Connie’s support and extremely positive attitude, my husband and I are blessed with two beautiful baby girls. I cannot thank her enough for making us feel like we were the only patients in the office (something many of us don’t experience this very often or may never experience this). She is truly an extraordinary nurse and person, and had such an impact on us. I do believe that having the knowledge of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, how to manage stress and having the support you need can make a difference in a successful outcome. Thank you Connie, we will never forget you!!!” – T&H M.

“Connie’s spirit has touched our lives over the years. She truly cares about helping patients along their journey while facing fertility struggles. You can teach certain skills in the workplace but you cannot teach the sincere heart, encouragement, wisdom, wellness and medical care that Connie Stark provides. I have attended the Wellness groups hosted by Connie and I have walked away with a better understanding of how the mind, body and spirit all work together in fertility challenges. Fertility is not just about the body needing to do what it is supposed to do. I realize that having that overall balance and support during my fertility treatments is what allowed us to succeed. She has shown me how to embrace the journey in a positive light and keep moving ahead. Through my cycles my husband & I have been blessed by her knowledge, support and ability in wellness. We are forever grateful that you are a part of our journey.” – MG

“Connie, You had such an amazing impact on me during our conversation. I totally have made some major life changes, and I needed your words of wisdom to really get started. I took all of your advice, and I have been completely successful. I know it may not have seemed like a big deal to you, but it really touched my heart that you walked me through this.” – Kathy

“Dear Medical Unit Manager, I want to commend your employee, Connie Stark. My husband and I have just completed 1 year of treatment. Needless to say, we’ve been on quite an emotional roller coaster. Despite all the ups and downs, one thing remained constant — Connie’s caring support, understanding and encouragement were always a phone call away. I truthfully don’t know how I could have gotten through this without her. Connie also made my husband feel very comfortable in a situation that was somewhat embarrassing. He always felt Connie gave him the understanding he needed and willingly answered his questions. I am a nurse by training and therefore have always been demanding of other healthcare professionals, especially nurses. Connie is among the very best nurses I have had the pleasure to know. We have chosen to pursue adoption to become a family, but we will highly recommend your services to others, mainly because you have Connie as part of your team.” – Marci

“Your work at our medical facility is so very much appreciated. We couldn’t be who we are without you. The patients love you. Most importantly, you are amazing at what you do.” – Liz

“I am so glad I came tonight. This was exactly what I needed. I finally feel at peace with everything I’ve been through and am more ready to move on. I am ready to be happy, healthy, and do things for me. Thank you!” – Retreat Attendee

“Dear Nurse Connie, Thank you so much for all the support and words of comfort and guidance over the many long months as we struggled to see where our efforts to grow our family would take us. We did it! We have two wonderful children and are so thankful for these miracles and all the people involved who helped us become the family we are today.” – P & C D

“Dear Connie, We really cannot thank you enough for all the hope you have given us. We appreciate your concern and thoughtfulness with every phone call and question. We just wanted to let you know how much it meant to us that you wanted to help us.” – K & J P

“Dear Connie, I just wanted to thank you for your understanding and patience over the past couple of years. You have remained so very loyal. I truly appreciate it. Your words last week meant so much. I know you really understand my situation.” – Julie

“Thank you so much! I really needed tonight. I’m so excited to go home and use the techniques I’ve learned tonight to help heal and center myself. I love the groups and would love to attend more!” – Support Group Attendee

"From the very first meeting with Connie, my wife and I were both set at ease. Connie has an incredible balance, technical expertise, empathy, and levity. Her dedication to fertility and wellness is second to non, and her combination of experience and demeanor resulted in a very comfortable and enjoyable experience for us both. My wife and I quickly came to look forward to our meetings with Connie. Our final office visit was emotional time for us. I never imagined I would be saddened because I could no longer go to the doctor's office, but I funky credit the sense of confidence and serenity instilled by Connie with the success of our IVP treatment. My wife is now 17 weeks. We couldn't be happier and we owe it all to Connie." – Jim
