Dr Spence Pentland testimonials

Forever grateful for their clinic and doctors!

Dr. Pentland and the entire Yinstill staff have incredibly supportive during our journey to conceive. Having a lot of troubles conceiving in the past to major medical problems, we were resolved to a life without bearing children. Discovering TCM and Dr. Pentland opened our eyes to more than just traditional western medicine. Even after our first failed IVF attempt, Dr. Pentland gave us an ear to listen and the support we desperately needed. He convinced us to start a new treatment plan in preparation for a second IVF cycle.

Forever grateful for the chance encounter that day

A chance conversation between my wife and a new mother first brought us to Dr. Pentland. The new mom had a beautiful baby with her, but told us she’d sadly lost her first when five months pregnant. Thereafter, she began seeing Dr. Pentland; the result was sleeping in her arms. At the time, my wife and I were recovering from the shock of our own miscarriage and trying to get pregnant again. We had never considered acupuncture before,

After my third pregnancy loss…

“After my third pregnancy loss I wondered if I would ever be able to have a baby. With the latest of the losses being in the second trimester I was heart broken and scared for what the future may hold. I had never thought that the path to becoming a mother would be so difficult and heart breaking. I started acupuncture in the months that followed and met Spence at that time. Being at acupuncture and working with Spence brought me a sense of calmness and offered an additional support as I continued on the journey to parenthood.

After suffering 3 miscarriages…

I came to see Dr. Pentland at the recommendation of a friend, after suffering 3 miscarriages. I was at the lowest point in my life and feeling very depressed and pessimistic about the future. At the very first meeting, Dr. Pentland made me feel at ease and gave me hope. He listened to me with complete attention as I cried and told him my history. Dr. Pentland was always calm, soothing and optimistic.

I had never had any acupuncture done prior to seeing Dr.

After 2 Miscarriages…

After two early miscarriages and almost two years of trying for a successful pregnancy with no identifiable reason for our troubles, we decided to look into IVF and happened to come across the website for Spence. I decided to try acupuncture and herbal teas as way of preparing for IVF. I enjoyed my weekly treatments, in part for the opportunity to simply relax and take some time for myself. After all the frustration and disappointment of the previous two years,

After Several Unsuccessful IVF Attempts…

Dear Spence & Alda, After a long difficult journey including several unsuccessful IVF attempts, I was beginning to believe that I could never become pregnant. When a friend recommended acupuncture we had already decided that this IVF cycle would be the last but that I would do anything to increase my chance of success.

I did not anticipate the profound effect of acupuncture on my sense of well-being and on my emotional, psychological and physical state.

A long journey to success

My husband and I have just gone through an IVF cycle with an egg donor and we’re now looking forward to an upcoming pregnancy test. Regardless of the outcome of that test, we are still a success story and we appreciate what Spence has done for us …

Married late in life, my husband and I still hoped for a family. My GP did not indicate how slim our chances might be. We were overjoyed when I became pregnant but despaired when it was unsuccessful.

20 YEAR JOURNEY COMPLETED!

Wow, I’m not sure where to begin, I think the title alone says a lot. I just wish I had learned about Spence a lot sooner. I first learnt of Spence from a flyer in the waiting room of the IVF office in the fall of 2008. At the time I was only days away from retrieval. This was technically our 2nd attempt at IVF but the first one was 10 years prior, it took us that long to muster up the courage and strength (emotionally) to give IVF another try.

Do everything you can to feel as involved in the journey as you can, and with patience believe it will happen

My husband and I were trying to conceive for about 2 years until we discovered recently we had a baby on the way. We can’t believe it! It still seems unreal that this is really happening, but it is and I am so grateful. I was 34 when we first started trying and after a year we met with a doctor and realized we had a male factor issue that involved the morphology and motility of my husband’s sperm.
