Kim Hadley and family.

"God provides us angels to help us in our greatest times of need. For my husband and me, He provided us with Brandi Oude-Alink, NP and Gregory C Starks, MD, along with their amazing staff.

After trying to conceive for one of our own for four years, we found ourselves in a dark and lonely spot. Dr. Starks knew exactly what tests to order to give me a correct diagnosis. Brandi designed the protocols, and although my body was difficult and it took four different protocols, she never gave up on us! Not only did she not give up on us, she was there for me emotionally.

Countless tears were cried in her office and emails exchanged, all showing her support during my time of need. They work tirelessly and extremely hard to be there for their patients — being a shoulder to cry on and celebrating the little victories — until the battle is won. I am happy to say that through these angels we received the greatest of all gifts from God, our precious son."
