I have wanted to write this letter for 12 months now! I found Dr. Karlin after I found out I had PCOS. I had seen a couple OB-GYN’s and a holistic doctor about the PCOS/infertility and never felt comfortable with any of them. They were either insensitive to the issue or they wanted to start giving me prescription drugs. I don’t even like to take Tylenol for a headache so I knew I didn’t want to go that route.
I can’t remember exactly how I found her but I immediately felt at ease with Dr. Karlin. She listened to my concerns and was genuinely empathetic. I left my first visit with hope and a sense of peace knowing that whatever happens will happen and that stressing about not being able to conceive a baby right now wouldn’t help me. Within 3 visits I had reached the comfortable conclusion that we were doing all we could (naturally and holistically), that we would enjoy our life (always live in the moment!) and that we would become pregnant when we were ready to become pregnant.
Well it was a couple weeks after that third appointment that we found out we were pregnant! I continued to see Dr. Karlin throughout my pregnancy and even saw her afterwards to help me with PPD and the headaches that I was having. OH! And she even helped me lose the baby weight! I weigh less not than I did when I became pregnant – woo hoo!
I am very thankful to have found Dr. Karlin and have since referred my brother, parents, aunt, uncle, and even our little Milo has been in for a few visits. I know we will always be loyal patients of Dr. Karlin 🙂
