The doctors, nurses, and staff at Tepeyac Family Center (under Divine Mercy Care) are truly wonderful!!! I was under their care throughout my high-risk twin pregnancy, and they delivered our son and daughter at 38 weeks. Tepeyac and Divine Mercy Care are a blessing to so many families, ours included!!

I have been a patient with Tepeyac Clinic for 12 years now, and have had my three children delivered with them. The staff at the clinic are wonderful, caring and I have complete trust in all of the doctors when it comes to how they care for me, especially when problems occured in childbirth. I was also touched with how supportive they were when I had miscarraiges. I travel 45 minute (w/o traffic) to see them and have no intention of finding a practice that is closer to home.

I have never before been treated with such dignity by a group of healthcare professionals. They have prayed with me, talked with me, and taken excellent care of me and my children. What a blessing Tepeyac Family Center and Divine Mercy Care are to the metro area!

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 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!

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.

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.
