"Our baby girl is beyond beautiful and we feel blessed every moment that she is ours, and we finally have our baby. It is a cliche but words cannot express our thanks to Dr Letterie and his expertise - he makes miracles happen, and gives you hope when there is none. When the time is right our daughter will know all about the wonderful Dr who helped us create her."
"Our experience with Northwest Center for Reproductive Sciences was the best we could have expected and we are now very excited about welcoming a new addition to the family in a few short months. While it is clear that Dr. Letterie is very knowledgeable in the most advanced procedures and treatments, we particularly appreciate the fact that he recommended a step-wise approach to solving our fertility challenges, employing less complex procedures at the outset instead of advancing to the most comprehensive and expensive treatments right away. We particularly appreciate Dr. Letterie’s calm demeanor and more thoughtful approach to our fertility treatment that minimized the stress for us and resulted in a positive outcome very quickly. We can’t say thank you enough."
“It is extremely difficult to put into words our gratitude or to express our respect for you and your staff….We feel absolutely overjoyed to have worked with you and your staff. The entire staff was respectful, caring, and most of all, competent and knowledgeable. In such a physically and emotionally difficult time for us, we were astounded by the level of compassion and genuine care shown to us by everyone, from the receptionists, to the nurses, to the doctors. The level of care provided by your entire staff was unlike any we have ever experienced and instilled our highest level of trust. That competence and care brought us the most joyful gift we could ever imagine at a time when we thought it impossible. Thank you for the gift of our healthy baby girl.”

“After three years of unsuccessful attempts to conceive a baby, including progressively aggressive infertility treatment at another clinic, I was becoming very discouraged. Both our emotional and financial resources were wearing out. My husband and I were contemplating options including trying a second IVF cycle with my own eggs, using donor egg, or pursuing adoption. Based on a failed first IVF, I had been told the chances of success with my own eggs were low. Dr. Letterie encouraged us to try again. While never promising success, he said that Northwest Center could try some additional measures to enhance the possibility of success, including changes in medication, dosing and laboratory work. We decided to take the risk. Despite a slow start early pregnancy, our child is due June! Prenatal tests so far have shown we have nothing to expect but a health baby. I am relieved and so happy to be preparing for motherhood.
Dr. Letterie and the lab director, Dr. Wiemer, along with nurses Melinda and Shanita, were positive, supportive and empathetic through the process. I would highly recommend trusting them with the future of your family.”

"I spent most of my childhood surrounded by babies, and as I got older, I looked forward to the day when I would have children. I was devastated to learn that getting pregnant the old fashioned way wouldn’t be an option for us. We visited various clinics in two different states before making our decision. Northwest Center for Reproductive Sciences was our last stop, and both my husband and I immediately knew that this was the clinic for us.
We have never been happier with a decision, and are so grateful for the doctors and staff at the clinic. They were there to answer my midnight phone calls about medication dosages (a little self doubt), and comforted me during all of the procedures.
We ended up transferring two embryos and thus began the long two week wait to find out if we were pregnant. Fourteen days later the results were in…we were PREGNANT! Our 6 week ultrasound at the clinic showed two heartbeats. We immediately called all our family and friends to share the exciting news. At our first Ob/Gyn appointment at 9 weeks, we both got the surprise of our lives. The ultrasound technician found a third baby hiding behind one of the babies.
I had a rather uneventful pregnancy considering that there were 3 babies growing in there. Tristan, Cassandra and Ryland arrived after 32 weeks and 4 days. They are now 16 months old and such a joy. Those early days were difficult, three crying hungry babies, but they grow so fast. I can’t believe that we’ve already celebrated their first birthday. We’ve got six little feet running around our house and couldn’t be happier."

How do you ever say thank you? My time as a patient at Northwest Center for Reproductive Sciences felt like I was treated by family. From the time I met with the receptionist, did a blood draw, saw a nurse, and then Drs. Letterie, Opsahl, and Kennedy, I felt a sense of peace and comfort the entire time. Each and every staff member’s commitment to patient excellence and high level of professionalism shines through as you walk through the doors at Northwest Center.
I knew from the moment I walked into NCRS that this was the fertility center for me. There was a sense about the clinic that gave me that “something” I was looking for. It is difficult to describe, but I just knew that the clinic was the right fit. The physician’s special attention to detail and their compassion for me as a patient was an experience I will never forget. Their compassion towards my husband and I and our family is equally appreciated. I could never thank them enough, or say the right words for the office to truly understand how they have affected my life. Without them, I wouldn’t have my son. My life would be so different without Northwest Center’s expertise throughout this process. I will forever be indebted to NCRS for bringing me my Ethan. I shudder to think how different my life would be if I hadn’t taken the step to seek help with my fertility and consult a team of experts.
How do you ever say thank you? I can never tell them enough, for they have changed my life! Thank you Northwest Center for Reproductive Sciences for helping me to bring my son into the world. I look at him everyday with reverence upon your office and your dedication to fertility. You are an incredible team and our Seattle community is blessed to have you.
With great gratitude and appreciation,
