The Tepeyac staff has medical expertise as well as a faith-based perspective that leads them to help the less fortunate. No wonder it's called "Divine Mercy" care. Wonderful!

It happens that self-paid pregnant women are encouraged to terminate their pregnancies while waiting for a "better time". Tepeyac Center is a Blessing for those in need ; its doctors and staff are professional and very supportive, even they work for less than what they should receive. May God bless all of you.

As a director of a non-profit for children with special needs and their families, and as the parent of three special needs children myself, I can attest to Divine Mercy Care's outstanding work in supporting families through the heartaches and real challenges of expecting, and raising, critically and chronically sick children. Divine Mercy Care staff go above and beyond the call of duty in providing outstanding medical care to the tiniest and most fragile of babies, as well as providing much needed medical and emotional support to their parents. A truly wonderful non-profit.

DMC is a truly unique health care facility, which has at its foundation, solid Christian principals in every aspect of patient care. I have worked in health care for almost 35 years, and never experienced such truly Catholic/Christian health care, even in the Catholic hospitals I've observed. Every patient and every procedure is treated with the same utmost care to promote healing and recovery. This remarkable health care facility should be held up as a model for all health care institutions.

I assumed the role of executive director of a local cpc last June. At that time, and prior to that while serving as a volunteer, I understood that Devine Mercy Care (aka Tepeyak)provided excellent care for our clients who were abortion vulnerable and/or needing fancial assistance. The Board of the Center, along with the Executive Director approved the support for medical care many times for needy clients, always with positive results.

These physicians and their staff are absolutely fabulous. Many of my friends travel an hour or more for ob/gyn care at Tepeyac. They care for the person and her health as well as that of her family. they trouble-shoot rather than write quick scripts to shoo away clients and move on to the next person. The Christlike atmosphere is palpable, including what one can discern from the highly informative web site. Thank you, Tepeyac Family!
