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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
