Memories from 25 Years Helping Women in Pain
August 24, 2020
The RAD Endometriosis & Pelvic Pain family is celebrating our 25th anniversary milestone with us! From patients who were with us 25 years ago to those who may be taking the first steps to find relief from endometriosis and pelvic pain today, we are thankful for these kind words and stories. Check out some of the memories that our patients have shared below.
“I have had symptoms of endometriosis since I was 14. After seeing my family doctor, 2 OB/GYNs, and pretty much losing all hope of getting answers, or better, relief for my pain and nausea, I washed up on the shores of RADfertility in Newark, Delaware. Newark is a bit of a drive for my family and me, but it was WORTH it. At my first appointment with Dr. Barbara McGuirk in March of 2019, I was in tears. Happy, hopeful tears because FINALLY someone understood where I was coming from and knew what I had been dealing with. She understood and validated my pain, asked me questions, allowed ME to ask questions, discussed a treatment plan and helped me understand my condition better, did a laparoscopy in September of 2019, and gave me an official diagnosis of endometriosis. She and her team are AMAZING, whether it’s scheduling appointments, answering questions, or fighting with medical insurance companies; they are on the ball. Now at 23 years old, I feel like there’s hope again. From the bottom of my heart, thank you RAD!”
“When I was 17 years old my appendix ruptured and wreaked havoc upon my abdominal organs. I spent all of my 20’s and some of my 30’s in pain. Pain that I had no idea was connected to my ruptured appendix and other fertility issues (like endometriosis) that I didn’t know I had. After I married my now husband we began seeking medical help to start our family. After three years of seeking medical assistance from a different practice and exploring many options with several other practices, we were referred to RAD by three different sources who repeatedly told us the same thing – seek out Dr. McGuirk. So we did. It was on our first consultation visit that Dr. McGuirk told us that she could do what every other doctor told us was impossible – and she did just that. With the help of Dr. McGuirk’s surgery, the IVF talents of her associates (particularly Dr. Neithardt), and the loving kindness and support that RAD showed us we now have four beautiful RAD babies. Thank you for all your help!”
