18 Year Old with Possible POF
Before leaving for college my 18 year old daughter had a routine physical with her GP. The test results showed signs of infertility due to possible Premature Ovarian Failure (POF). We went to GRS discouraged, stressed, and confused. Dr. Kaplan talked to my daughter, not as a naive teenage girl, but as an independent woman who needed to be educated about her situation and ultimately who needed to make important decisions about her future. Not once did my young daughter feel apprehensive or uncomfortable under the care of Dr. Kaplan, which was one of my biggest fears. When we started the process Dr. Kaplan's staff had such positive attitudes and were willing to give her their undivided attention every time we met with them. I will always be grateful to Dr. Kaplan and her staff for making the first chapter in her journey a positive one.
