I learned about Divine Mercy Care when my daughter went to work there. She was a paid employee working with the medical team. I love in NC and she would tell me of the wonderful work that was being done there and all in accordance with the Catholic Christian tradition and with such love and caring. I only wish we had more of these clinics and more of these Doctors and medical workers to be available to all of us. God Bless You

Divine Mercy Care provides great service for people in need. The Tepeyac Family Center is a fantastic facility with top notch physicians, nurses and staff and I have highly recommended this office to others. I moved to Northern Virginia mid-pregnancy and due to insurance bureaucracy I had a very difficult time getting care and as a result missed much of my second trimester getting sent through red tape. Concerned about my health, we started looking outside and discovered Tepeyac. My experience with Tepeyac during the pregnancy and post-natal care of my daughter was fantastic and I continue as a patient for other health care needs. If you are looking for high quality, compassionate and caring health care, you will find all this and more at Tepeyac and Divine Mercy Care.

I originally got involved with DMC/Tepeyac as a pragmatic way of being “Pro-Life.” You can tell a couple experiencing an unplanned, crisis pregnancy not to have an abortion. But with DMC/Tepeyac you can also show people a caring path to pre-natal care and delivery support. And the doctors at DMC/Tepeyac are dedicated to practicing exceptional medicine, so this is truly a wonderful asset in our community. Having been involved with DMC/Tepeyac now for a few years, I have really come to appreciate their “Transforming Hearts through Healthcare” message. This message is in part a restoring of a faith-based perspective to healthcare that truly reinforces human dignity and caring in the practice of medicine. You can see the joy that faith-based practice brings to the doctors and nurses at DMC/Tepeyac. This joy touches patients and doctors in other practices , and is having a healing effect that is broad reaching.

I have personally seen the results of this organization at their annual Gala. When they introduce some of the heroic women who have fought to keep their babies through the aid of the DMC doctors and nurse, it is truly a moving experience.

I have been a patient at Tepeyac Family Center since 2002 when we relocated here from the midwest. Before finding Tepeyac, I had seen multiple specialists and had even been a participant in a double blind study at a major university for women with multiple miscarriages with no explanation for the cause. Dr. Bruchalski at Tepeyac was the first one to treat a specific condition that he discovered. So many of my previous symptoms were decreased or eliminated and he delivered my youngest son in 2005. Dr. Bruchalski and all of the doctors at Tepeyac respect the teachings of the Catholic Church in regards to promoting the dignity of each human life. I had often felt my previous doctors were only treating symptoms and not getting to the root of the problem or seeing me as a person with feelings, but only an object in their clinics. It is so refreshing to not only have access now to excellent healthcare but to have a doctor who really cares for his patients. Tepeyac goes the extra mile with their patients and it is so appreciated. I recently suffered another miscarriage and later I received a sympathy card from Tepeyac which was very touching. They also organize an annual memorial service for those who have experienced loss. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that my experience at Tepeyac has been extremely positive and I highly recommend this nonprofit!

The people at Divine Mercy Care have hearts filled with joy, enthusiasm, and love for their patients and future patients. Because they are under the care of the Blessed Virgin Mary and in line with the teachings of the Catholic Church, I have much more trust!

Knowing that the Divine Mercy care is there for me when I need it, when someday I hope to become a mother, and for friends who will become mothers, gives me hope that babies and other patients will be taken care of with dignity and love.

The doctors at Tepeyac Family Center, from Divine Mercy Care, were absolutely amazing!!! These are the very best doctors I have ever encountered. They provide outstanding medical care in every way.

Amazing!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Continue to provide the best ob/gyn care ever, and expand to other neighborhoods.

My wife started to go to Tepeyac after we got married. We were unable to conceive for several years and Dr. Bruchalski and his team were extremely supportive and professional. They recognize, indeed celebrated, the value and dignity of my wife as a person - as opposed to viewing her as a patient/client as happens at so many doctor's offices. Even though it would be of no benefit to them, Dr. B recommended we consider pursuing adoption. We did so and were blessed with our eldest daughter. Just before she was born, we found out my wife was expecting. Tepeyac delivered our oldest son for us as well. Leaving Tepeyac when we moved from Virginia was tough, but we are glad we have been able to continue to support them financially since then.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The respect they showed my wife in the years she went there, and in the wonderful job they did in delivering our oldest son.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them enough money to open up more centers around the country, to train other OBGYNs, and to help implement their vision of healthcare reform.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their respect for the dignity of every person with whom they come in contact.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

simultaneously the most professional and the most caring people in the medical profession that I have encountered.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the way healthcare is provided to women and babies in the United States.

Ways to make it better...

it had been more frequent. These people are the greatest.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

that they need more money.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The doctors and staff at the Tepeyac Family Center (Divine Mercy Care's primary program) provide excellent, loving care and concern for both mother and child, not to mention father. My first visit to Tepeyac Family Center was when I was experiencing a miscarriage. They were so gentle and kind toward me, even giving me a hug. The knowledgeable doctors at Tepeyac ran blood tests that determined the reasons for my miscarriages and infertility. They went above and beyond in helping me with my future pregnancies and childbirths, and even when I had to deal with the unforeseen postpartum depression. One of the doctors even called me "pumpkin", a nickname my father gave me, during one of my visits, further displaying care, and God's love, for me and my family as we walked through this journey. I so appreciate their godly concern and high ethical and moral standards in their practice of medicine. I find such strength and dignity under their care. Thank you.

I went to the clinic with my heart broken after learning that the baby I carried had died. My previous doctors were harsh and cold with me. At DVC, I was welcomed with warmth and caring. They helped me through my grief, infertility, and then the high-risk pregnancy that gave me my twins. They delivered two more of my children and their care and concern in light of my somewhat unique situation has never been duplicated. The staff was loving, the doctors were smart, educated, but kind. They spent time with their patients and offered their respect to women and the choices they made for their bodies. Highly recommend!

I am now the mother of five children. I wouldn't have had ONE child without the help, support, and bravery of the doctors and staff. They valued the lives I've carried as much as I did and did everything in their power to save them.
