Tepeyac Divine Mercy Care has delivered 7 --soon to be 9!! :) of our healthy, beautiful grandchildren Not every one of our daughter's and daughter in law's pregnancies has been easy, but our girls always received the care they needed when they needed it. In cases of emergency, the doctors were there. In cases where there were serious questions that needed immediate attention, Divine Mercy Care was there.

One of the few places I know in Fairfax VA that will help the abortion-bound mother by offering free ultrasounds and free delivery of their babies if they are financially strapped. This place gives women hope and help to keep their babies! I haven't worked with Divine Mercy Care directly - I just recommend the place to the abortion-bound woman by providing DVC's literature to them.

Based on my the excellent, faith-based care my wife has received at Divine Mercy Care, we have recommended it to many many friends. The caring, community-like attitute of everyone at the center has been comforting and inspiring.

Divine Mercy Care helps many individuals and families in the community with many health issues from pregnancy to presciptions. It is a welcome addition to the area where often the personal touch is absent.

I became familiar with Divine Mercy Care while a patient with Tepeyac Family Center. In this age of rising health care costs, I was so happy to see a place where lower income women could receive the OB/GYN care they needed. The doctors run a very busy practice, yet they are willing to make sacrifices of their time to serve the poor without compensation. Impressive!

Divine Mercy Care doctors and staff put the woman and baby first. When a woman has no way to pay, she is still greeted and cared for with open arms.

My contact with Divine Mercy Center is through a friendship with a parishioner who uses their services for family/medical care, obstetrics, etc. They cannot say enough about the caring attitude of the staff and doctors. Through their mailings I am aware of how impt they are to the med. community, as they stay true to strong Catholic principles.

Divine Mercy Care Center saves babies in the womb every day, and for that I am eternally grateful. My son and his wife had a baby four years ago, my grandaughter, who has Downs syndrome. The doctors and nurses were loving and caring. God Bless all they do.

Tepeyac has seen me through four difficult pregnancies -- Dr. Bruchalski prayed with us during the most stressful moments of labor and delivery. He, as well as his excellent staff, are compassionate and responsive to the needs of the diverse community they serve.
