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.

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

As a patient and referring health care professional

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

Please advertise more, not many know the existence of Tepayac Center.

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

Availability and competence.

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

courteous.

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

offer more for self paid pregnant women and teens who do not know where to go to be treated. They feel "diminished" when they come to a public service

Ways to make it better...

more appointment spots available for the selected doctor

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

Advertising and made it known to a larger public

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

Tepayac Center deserves to be understood more and helped from all.

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!

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

the web site to learn about my health as a mother in all ages and stages of fertility. I know about hormones and adrenal function and how I am affected by cycles and how to stay as healthy to better serve my husband and children. God Bless PROLIFE docs!

This is just awesome! They have helped so many countless people and ask for nothing in return. It is a first rate organization which is compassionate and helps people in their time of great need.

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

This should be counted in Health Awards not in animal welfare. I have personally heard of many people that have directly benefitted from their assistance.

This organization has provided critical, life-saving services to the community. DMC and the Tepeyac Center (named after the mount where the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to St. Juan Diego) have provided peri-natal care free of charge to poor women. They have also been instrumental in helping to convince women in difficult (read: unintended) pregnancies to avoid the horrible tragedy of killing their unborn children. DMC Pharmacy was a welcome and needed alternative to the commercial pharmacies that dispense without thought the death-dealing abortifacients we cynically refer to as "birth control pills." DMC Pharmacy would have none of it, and it is a terrible loss to - and indictment of - the community that it wasn't able to compete against faceless, heartless, ruthless mass-marketed chain pharmacies. I guess all those Catholics out there couldn't be bothered to drive around the corner for their prescriptions, or perhaps, all those Catholics wanted birth control pills. As it is, it is now s impossible for faithful Catholics to receive prescription medications from a firm that doesn't support the genocidal culture of death regnant in this country today. May God bless the doctors, staff, administrators and supporters of Divine Mercy Care. These people by their example demonstrate true "caritas," charity, love.

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

My personal health care, as my pharmacy; more generally, in sparing souls from the devastation of abortion.

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

their selfless service to poor families and women.

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

Dr. Bruchalski is a modern hero, a man who re-examined his life, repented of his past grisly sins, and is heaven-bent on making reparations. He benefits this community immeasurably in so doing.

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

Save souls and lives

Over the years, I have called Divine Mercy Care to request urgent second opinions for pregnant women in distress. From the moment we call, the receptionist is thoughtful and helpful, a second opinion and/ or sonogram is arranged very quickly, and the staff treats the woman with the utmost compassion and loving concern. Divine Mercy Care brought light and love and hope into the lives of at least five of our special moms in challenging pregnancies, and their babies.

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

their effect on pregnant women in distress. Through the care and support, the women are able to recognize the beauty of nurturing their children despite illness.

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

the staff is always patient and compassionate, no matter how busy they are.

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

teach more doctors how to practice medicine with internal peace and radiant joy.

DMC is a great center that treats the total health of the woman. It respects her body and works with, rather than, against her nature. It is the start of a new movement where today's society's conventions are thrown aside and a new, 'green' outlook of the unique physical, spiritual and emotional needs of the woman are nourished and treated.

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

its work with community outreach and awareness programs emphasizing the complete health of the expectant mother
