“My husband and I had been trying to conceive for over a year when my OBGYN recommended that we see a specialist. We saw another fertility specialist first, but just didn’t feel like it was the right fit. When we met Dr. Werlin and his staff, we immediately knew we were in the right place. At the first consult we were taken back in a very timely manner and had a very thorough and personable meeting with Dr. Werlin. After going over our options, we decided on a plan and were able to proceed toward our dream. We are now expecting a baby in January! Thank you Dr. Werlin and all your caring and compassionate staff. You will always be in our heart.”

“Dr. Werlin and this staff are simply amazing! I have never met a group of people who are so friendly and actually care about you. Even though our journey of becoming pregnant wasn’t always easy, they were always there every step of the way with encouragement, hugs and smiles. To be honest, they have become family. A family that makes miracles happen. And Dr. Werlin is my hero. An excellent doctor who is always there to support and personally call you with lab results. You can really tell that he loves what he does and so does his staff.”

“My husband and I have struggled with keeping a pregnancy the last four years with multiple miscarriages. Dr. Werlin helped us identify the reason for our losses, and most importantly, provided strength and support during one of the most challenging and emotional times in our lives. His optimism carried us through to two successful pregnancies, and he and his staff held our hands through every step, reassuring us that miracles can happen! My son is one and I am pregnant with my second! We thank God for finding Dr. Werlin and recommend him to anyone who struggles to have children. P.S. Every nurse is amazing. Love to Anne, JoJo, Michelle, and Lisa!”

“I couldn’t begin to imagine my journey without Dr. Werlin. I came to him at the brink of giving up, but he provided the love and encouragement my husband and I needed to push forward. Dr. Werlin’s bedside manner is unlike any other. He has such a warm, endearing disposition that makes each and every patient feel as though they are the only one that exists. I am thrilled to officially be pregnant, but knowing I’ll be moving on is all so bittersweet. Dr. Werlin will be missed, but certainly not forgotten. Finally, a special thanks to the entire Coastal Fertility Team who have expressed compassion, patience and encouragement throughout this process.”

“Where do we begin… our experience with Coastal Fertility, specifically Dr. Werlin and staff, was nothing short of amazing. We cannot express our sincere gratitude enough in how they guided us through this long and stressful journey. The end result was our beautiful and healthy son, who we cannot imagine life without. If it wasn’t for Dr. Werlin’s expertise and guidance, we truly don’t know if we’d have our family. He truly cares about his patients and made us feel important amd cared about throughout the process. Thank you!”

“We are forever grateful to CFMC for helping us achieve the long-time dream of a family! The doctor’s dedication and passion was not only encouraging and reassuring, but also motivational.”

“My husband and I could not be more pleased with our experience at Coastal Fertility. Both Dr. Werlin and his staff provided us with excellent care. The IVF process is filled with its emotional and physical ups and downs, so having a doctor with a sense of humor was a welcome perk. Dr. Werlin was always positive and upbeat, and made us feel like he was so happy to see us at every appointment (and there were many). He provided the right amount of support, knowledge, humor, sensitivity, and medical expertise based on the situation. He also provided a very personal touch by calling himself with all of my lab updates. I don’t know of many doctors that do such a thing.

All of the staff at Dr. Werlin’s office were great, but we worked mostly with our nurse, Michelle. Michelle was there with us through every step of the process whether it was teaching us how to take our meds or answer our many questions. She always got back to us promptly with any and all questions we had. We were never made to feel that she didn’t have time for us or that our questions were stupid. On top of the excellent staff the fact that we never had to wait very long to be seen by the doctor was truly amazing. I have never been to a doctor’s office before with such a short wait time.

Of course the best part of our experience at Coastal Fertility is the fact that we are pregnant with our first child! We are expecting a baby boy. Coastal Fertility made the impossible possible and made our dream of starting a family come true. I would recommend this clinic to anyone who is having fertility issues. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done.”

“Simply amazing. Dr. Werlin helped make our family’s dream come true. He is considered “the best” for a reason. I will miss the staff and him, as they were so caring and positive throughout my entire experience. Graduating is a bitter sweet moment and I’m sad I won’t be seeing Dr. Werlin on a weekly basis anymore. Thank you, Dr. Werlin and Staff, you’ll always be in my heart!”

“Going through IVF is a tough and long journey. Dr. Werlin and his staff made this journey less scary, and were always there when I needed them. Whether I had questions or medicine shortages they always had my back. They have helped me successfully achieve my goal of becoming pregnant. If you want a doctor that treats you like family and is invested in the success of your goals, Coastal Fertility is the place.”

– E

“This is my second baby with Coastal and I couldn’t be happier with the level of care and detail Dr. Werlin and his staff showed. It really feels like family! Highly recommend Dr. Werlin to anyone!”

– S

“Our experience was really great and positive. Dr. Werlin and his staff gave us the strength and courage we needed, and we now have a little boy to love! Also, his OB/GYN recommendation was top notch, Dr. Flora continued the same level of care as Dr. Werlin!”

– J

“Finding Dr. Werlin and Coastal Fertility was like finding an oasis in a desert. We finally had answers to long standing questions and felt like we were being proactive. We had a new hope, and are so excited to be some of the lucky ones expecting next spring. A huge “thank you” to Dr. Werlin and all the staff at Coastal Fertility. You made our dreams come true!”

“From the moment I had my first consultation with Dr. Werlin (along with my egg donor), I knew I had made the right decision! From the front desk to ALL of the nurses, everything was efficiently run. There was never a doubt in my mind that I had chosen the right place (I did have consultations with two other fertility centers in LA). In a way, this graduation is bittersweet… I am ecstatic to get to this stage, but I will miss you ALL! Dr. Werlin, YOU’RE a ROCK STAR! Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. You’re the Magic Man! ❤❤❤ ”

“This is our second experience with Dr. Werlin. Our son was born three years ago. I love that when we came back almost four years later, the same nurses and staff were still here. Dr. Werlin and his entire staff make a stressful and difficult journey a little easier. We are so fortunate to be expecting our second child with Dr. Werlin’s help.”

– A

“Dr. Werlin and his staff have been truly amazing throughout our entire IVF journey. Words cannot express the joy we felt when we got the incredible news that we are pregnant! The staff has always been very kind & attentive. Our nurse Michelle was fantastic! She patiently answered all of our questions & was supportive throughout the whole process. Dr. Werlin is excellent at making you feel comfortable & important. I had some complications early in my pregnancy & Dr. Werlin has a way of making you feel calm & safe, even in the most stressful situations. We will be forever grateful to Dr. Werlin for making our dream of starting a family a reality.”

“26 years ago we were patients of Dr. Werlin. He was amazing with his care and expertise. We will forever be thankful and grateful for him and his wonderful staff! We love you Dr. Werlin!”

– Robin

“My experience with DR. Werlin and Coastal Fertility has been amazing!  I was very nervous about doing anymore fertility treatments, and having a new doctor, but everyone made us feel very comfortable.  Dr. Werlin is the greatest doctor I have ever dealt with!  He comes in cheerful, funny and ready to answer any questions that you might have. The staff is friendly and you always leave knowing that they have your best interest in mind and are there to help you when you need it.  I am so thankful to Dr. Werlin!”

“My wife and I can whole-heartedly say that visiting the Coastal Fertility Medical Center was the best decision we made. Their approach to IVF was considerate, kind, and made a difficult process comforting. Their staff is amazing and the constant attention from the nurses to the doctor was unlike any other office we have visited. Coastal Fertility made our dreams come true and made us very happy. We hope others will get to experience what we have experienced!”

“After a year of trying on my own I had a tube removed and was told to seek fertility treatments. I went to Dr. Werlin for help.I have been a patient of Dr. Werlin’s twice. The first time was in 2002 and I become pregnant on our first round and gave birth to a beautiful healthy little girl, the second time was in 2005 and again gave birth to a beautiful healthy little girl in 2006. Since then we have had a tubal pregnancy in September of 2007 which Dr. Werlin was there for me. Low and behold, with only one tube and not a very good one at that I came up pregnant again in March (this year). My husband and I were nervous to get excited at first knowing my history, but I am now 11 weeks pregnant with baby #3 and everything looks good. Dr. Werlin is the best and I miss his special care that I received during my first two pregnancies. I definitely have two miracle babies, and now one on the way. Never give up hope! Thanks Werl!!!”

“Thank you Dr. Werlin and Staff for everything. After trying for five years we have been blessed with twins, a baby boy and girl. Our experience with Dr. Werlin and the Staff was awesome they are able to take the stress out of the situation the second you walked in the office. We have formed many memories during our procedure from the Rolling Stones, Dr. Werlins humor and uplifting attitude to the first time we got to see the babies on the ultrasound. We instantly stop in our tracks and smile when The Rolling Stones are playing no matter where we are at. We have truly been blessed with an experience of a life time and the opportunity to watch two beautiful lives form right before our eyes. Thank you Dr. Werlin you have given us a lifetime of happiness!”

“You can read all about Dr. Werlins’ expertise and knowledge elsewhere on this website. We all know how highly recommended he is. What I need to say, is how wonderful the “Werlin experience” is.

Infertility is such a sensitive issue. Not only will Dr. Werlin feel your pain and hand you a tissue when you hit rock bottom, he will have you smiling again in no time. The only comparison I can make is “Patch Adams”. I looked forward to every office visit… even going in for the pregnancy test that I knew was negative. We were a team and we did not give up until my dream came true!”

“My husband and I endured 6 years of infertility treatment. After being highly recommended by my sister who had also successfully conceived and given birth, there was no other choice but to go to Dr. Werlin. Dr. Werlin and ALL of his staff were warm, compassionate and understanding in not only the medical aspects of achieving a pregnancy, but also helpful with insurance matters and most of all the emotional part of this trying experience. Thanks to Dr. Werlin, our dream did come true with the birth of our 3 year old twins, Joey and Katrina.”

– Joan & Ruben Estrada

“Dr. Werlin, You’re the MAN!! Look at our new baby Madison – its clear that a picture says a thousand words. Every time I see my 4½-year-old daughter kiss and pet her new little baby sister, I am in awe and so grateful that the struggle of it all fades.

Thank you for knowing when to gently push me even when I was stubborn and resisted. The choices I had to make that seemed to monumental appear so simple now as I gaze into her beautiful little eyes, as if the answers were right in front of me the whole time. You and your staff are the most perfect blend of professionalism mixed with gentleness, kindness, and compassion. Along with the most important element that fit my personality, is your upbeat personality and humor.

Please put our little miracle Madison’s picture up on your photo wall of miracles to let couples know that though it can be a long, rough road emotionally and physically, but the end result of this beautiful baby in my arms shows that with your help, dreams do come true.

Please give a special thanks to Susan Le, Janet, Debbie and Cindy, and again thank-you to all your help to make this all come true.”

“Dear Dr. Werlin, We want to thank you for helping us to finally get our family started. We will never forget the day you called to tell us our pregnancy test was positive. Success on the first attempt! We were shocked. We thought we were dreaming. Our whole experience in your office was extremely positive. Your entire staff is so professional. Everyone is extremely knowledgeable in their job. Your confidence and fun attitude gave us strength and loosened us up in what could have been a scary and tense situation. We could tell you really cared about us and all the other couples that were trying to achieve pregnancy. Thank you for working so hard to become the best in your field. ”

“Dr. Werlin & Staff, Thank you for your loving support and dedication. I wish every doctor had your compassion, enthusiasm & dedication.

“This is truly the most awesome experience I could ever imagine, and it wouldn’t have happened without your help. We are still amazed at the total commitment of the entire group and how we felt so special. It’s obvious that you all really enjoy your jobs. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you’ve done. God bless you all!”

“Mommy, Daddy & I had so much fun at your Halloween party! Thank you for all the time and energy invested to make the day such a happy event. I sure did like winning a prize for my “Dorothy” costume, and it was fun to have my picture taken in front of the wall hanging that Mommy embroidered for you when I was a tiny baby. We were so surprised to see you still have it. When we count our blessings on Thanksgiving, you are on our list in capital letters!”

“Dear Staff, Thank you all for being so kind. You have all been so wonderful and you all seem to enjoy what you do. I’ve been trying to conceive for over 2 years, and I finally have to accept the fact that it is not going to work for me. You have all made a very stressful experience a lot easier to deal with. I really enjoyed seeing you so many mornings for the past year and a half. I will miss all of you very much. Thank you again for your kindness.”

“This experience has been very trying on my husband and I both.  It has it’s share of ups and downs that only someone who has gone through infertility can understand.  We first saw a different doctor and went through years of fertility drugs, IUI’s, and test after test.  We liked that you could go to class and find out more information before talking directly to Dr. Werlin.   During our consultation, Dr. Werlin gave us his time.  He didn’t rush us through like I felt with other doctors.  I really felt like he got our whole story and background.  The office is warm and there is the Rolling Stones music playing in the rooms.  I felt welcome and comfortable.  Dr.  Werlin is upbeat and always took the time to talk to me and answer my questions.  And the nursing staff is AMAZING!  When I called in with my crazy questions, they always called back and calmly answered all my questions until I felt satisfied.”

– N.P.

“We decided to see Dr. Werlin for a 2nd opinion and after our first meeting we felt a sense of comfort and trust.  Dr. Werlin took the time to educate us, asked us questions, and answered outs.  While other doctors were quick to suggest expensive and higher risk options, Dr Werlin was thorough in his testing and took the time to really understand our individual circumstance before his recommendation to try on our own while being monitored by him.  Sure enough, after a  few  months,  we found out we were pregnant just after Christmas!  Since then, we have been monitored by Dr. Werlin and his staff weekly.  They are always encouraging and make us feel that they truly care for our success.  The one word that comes to mind is we fell “spoiled”.  We have never waited more than 5 minutes and Dr. Werlin himself does the ultrasounds.  Dr Werlin, the nurses, and the staff are not only experts, but have a natural ability for keeping the stress minimal!  We will miss the sense of “family” this office has!”

“I loved how Dr. Werlin was always os positive during the entire mock trial and Invitro process. Even when my thyroid numbers were low, he was positive about how to fix the problem. The entire staff was always friendly and helpful. Anne thanks for always answering my questions and helping me through the entire process. I recommend your services to anyone. I just wish a few people in need of your services lived close enough to use your facility. Thanks again for everything, and you might see me again for yet another baby in the future!”

“It is hard to begin to express my gratitude towards Dr. WERLIN AND THE Coastal Fertility Staff. The journey of infertility is one that is lonely and filled with disappointment, questions and insecurity. I am pleased to say that my experience with DR. Werlin and his staff has been one of humor, answers, hope and comfort. I felt comfortable from the moment that I walked into the office, Dr. Werlin met us with a positive attitude and a sense of humor, something that I think is so important during this process. He answered my questions without dismissing me and took the time to make me feel comfortable. I enjoyed the personal touches around the office from the Rolling Stones memorabilia to the caricatures of Dr. Werlin, to the pictures of the many babies that were brought into this worked with the help and kindness of Dr. Werlin and his staff.

I felt important and special during every step of the process. Every morning, which when going through a fertility cycle can be many, I was met with a smiling face at the window. The nurses remembered who I was and greeted me with a kind smile each and every day. Dr. Werlin would always walk into the room with a positive attitude and call me be name, or nickname! Each visit was concluded with a high five and “Let’s Make History!” His connection with his patients is wonderful and I felt that I was important to him and not just another person coming through the office. His care for his patients is also evident in the way he handles follow-up phone calls; that is by calling personally! The quality of care and personal connection is something that has helped me through this long journey and is exceptional compared to other fertility centers that I have been to. I am forever grateful for the gift that Coastal Fertility and Dr. Werlin have given me. The kind and warm memories will always be remembered every time that I look at my two precious souvenirs!”

“Dealing with fertility issues is one of the most difficult things I have had to endure in my life. I sought a doctor who was smart- compassionate- experienced, and someone who could explain the issues t me. Dr. Werlin was and is all of these things. It has been an incredible journey- and I truly believe that with the grace of God and the assistance of Dr. Werlin, we are one set closer to realizing our dream of being parents. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”
