Success Stories

By GD on Oct 25th, 2015

I was terribly surprised to read the comments of September 30, 2015 from somebody who I assume had some kind of unforeseen circumstances with her surgery. I had a totally different experience. Recently I underwent an In Vitro Fertilization procedure as my husband had sperm problem. We had 3 excellent embryos transferred without success. Dr. Chuong suggested us have a laparoscopic surgery to evaluate and treat possible endometriosis, which could compromise the implantation process even given the quality embryos. Prior to the surgery, we did an extensive search and noted that Dr. Chuong was one of the top surgeons for infertility surgery in the area. He had performed more than 1,500 procedures since 1985 with excellent results. Many thanks to Dr. Chuong, who lasered all the endometriosis during the surgery, and I became pregnant via the 2nd IVF soon after surgery. Obviously his surgery had made the HUGE difference, and I have highly recommended him to my families and friends without any reservation

In 2009, I sought out The Cooper Institute for fertility treatment. Dr. Choung and his staff are knowledgeable and compassionate. Dr. Choung was very thorough in his explanation of the medical diagnostic assessments that I would need to have performed. He helped my husband and I understand fertility treatment options that would yield the best results for my fertility needs. In 2009, I was successful on the first IUI cycle. Dr. Choung monitored my progress to help my pregnancy thrive and remain viable. I had a beautiful, full-term daughter in March 2010. In 2014, I returned to Dr. Choung for fertility treatments. He assessed my fertility and determined that I would need a different treatment plan. My husband and I went through an IUI cycle in July 2014 and I became pregnant with twins. For each pregnancy, Dr. Choung and his staff celebrated the successful cycle and showed sincere happiness. I believe that he has a staff who gives patients what it needed throughout each stage of the fertility process. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Choung to any woman with a desire to become pregnant.

"Our fertility journey was a long and winding road that led us to the Cooper Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Endocrinology. After consulting with several Doctors in the Houston area, and many tests and procedures, we realized that we needed to proceed aggressively.  After one phone consultation with Antoinette, the IVF coordinator, I knew we found our fertility center. Many other facilities took our money with little to no encouragement of success.  Dr. Chuong is patient, kind and truthful. His knowledge and experience in reproductive medicine is evident. At other centers, we consulted with the Dr. Once and never saw them again. Not at Cooper, Dr. Chuong and Antoinette are with you every step of the way. It's an emotional and stressful time, and the comfort of having the Doctor personally call you with results or questions is reassuring. And I can't say enough about Antoinette, the IVF coordinator, her knowledge, and compassion is the reason we chose to go to The Cooper Institute of Reproductive Medicine. I am so happy and thankful for Dr. Chuong and his staff for all that they did for us. I can graciously say that after seven years of trying, we are the proud parents of boy/girl twins. Our dreams really did come true. Thank you Dr. Chuong and staff! "

My wife was 42 years old when we started an IVF cycle treatment at Cooper institute. In spite of we are in high risk candidate category, with amazing Dr. Chuong’s technique and greatly support clinic staffs (especially Antoinette), our son was born on 5/27/2015 when my wife was at age of 43. We cannot express our appreciation enough to the Cooper Institute and feel so grateful and lucky that we have chosen a highly successful program. We are very sure that we will be back to Cooper for our second child. Thank you so much, Dr. Chuong and staff

I want to thank Dr. Chuong and his office. After years of not knowing why I wasn't getting pregnant I made the scary decision to speak to a fertility doctor. I chose Dr. Chuong based on a recommendation from another patient. He quickly tested my husband and I and reviewed all options with my husband and me. He took the time to explain his recommendation and the odds of success. He asked a lot of questions about medical and family history. We decided to go with his recommendation and after one round of IVF we were blessed with a successful pregnancy. I am now 7 months pregnant with twin girls, at age 35. We couldn't be more thrilled with the results. Thank you to Antoinette - who was always very helpful in explaining every step of the process. And thank you to Dr. Chuong who personally called to check on me even through the Christmas holiday. Our family is SO excited to meet our little girls!!

Dr. Chuong is the most competent and caring doctor I have ever met in my life. I cannot thank him enough. He is highly experienced and listed all my options during my initial visit. I had visited several clinics and was most impressed that he really put patients' best interest first. He is definitely not the kind of business doctor who only tries to sell patients the most expensive procedure. I can tell he takes care of each and every patient like his own family. The IVF Coordinator, Antoinette is excellent. She always works above and beyond what an office nurse is expected to do. I did not think I could get the same kind of medical and personal care anywhere else. My husband and I are grateful to Dr. Chuong and his superb staff. I will definitely recommend his office to any of my families and friends.

We got pregnant on our first IVF cycle. The IVF coordinator, Antoinette, was fantastic, and caring, and the Embryologist was Excellent. The administrative Staff we dealt with was cheerful. We are a "modern family", and Dr Chuong was the first IVF clinics that would work with us without discrimination (And we were screened at 4 IVF clinics prior to finding Cooper Institute and all of them expressed hesitation to work with our untraditional family).

We've had a very positive experience w/ Dr. Chuong & his staff & are now pregnant w/ a singleton. We had a lot of ups & downs to get here but through it all, Dr. Chuong & his staff explained the procedures, the odds of each, and were there for all our questions, even answering via email in the evenings. ART IS expensive esp. if insurance doesn't help, but go into it expecting that reality & as an informed, educated patient knowing the procedures & the likelihood of success. Cooper Institute was very helpful at knowing when our insurance would pay due to previous cysts. With a perfect cycle, IVF success rates are only about 40%, which means multiple cycles may be needed. We had to do 2 to get a successful outcome but then we knew that both from research & Dr. Chuong's patient explanations. After all, what are your chances without ART? I would recommend Cooper Institute to anyone esp. hard to serve patients, who other clinics may refuse to keep their success rates artificially high.

After my second bout with ovarian cancer and losing my ability to have children I felt lost. My biggest worry was not being able to give my husband his biological children. Through the companionate team at the Cooper Institute I was able to carry my husband's biological child and ensure OUR child had a healthy beginning. The team at the Cooper Institute was empathic and understood my many worries. They were able and willing to answer my many questions which eased my concerns. They provided me with an easy to follow plan to take my hormones. Dr. Chuong is wonderfully knowledgeable and experienced. His staff is caring and have genuine concern for their patients. We became pregnant with our miracle on the first attempt. Our miracle was born in December and we are truly grateful to the team at the Cooper Institute!

My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for over 5 years...I finally decided to get some help from a fertility clinic. After meeting with several fertility clinics (very well known ones I might add), I decided to go with Dr. Chuong at Cooper Institute. From the very beginning, I was treated like an individual and given the best care for my individual needs. At the other clinics I visited, I honestly felt like they moved people through like Cooper Institute I got the feeling that they truly cared. Antoinette (the IVF Coordinator) was invaluable throughout the entire process....she and Dr. Chuong had faith even when I had given up. I had a lot of complications with the IVF treatment, my body would not respond to the drugs, and I was not producing enough eggs. On top of this, my hormone levels were fluctuating all over the place. Throughout this time, Dr. Chuong and his staff were always positive, hopeful and loving. It was a very difficult process emotionally for me, but they got me through it. I honestly would recommend Dr. Chuong to anyone who is struggling with this issue....he will treat your case individually and do everything he can to help you acheive your dream of having a family. As Dr. Chuong told me, "Your Success is Our Success", and he truly means it. He is a very caring doctor, and Antoinette is the best. She was always there, even through my millions of questions and anxiety. I am very happy to say that it was all worth it. I am currently pregnant with a little boy who is due July 30, 2013. We could not be more thrilled!!! I am actually going to go back to Dr. Chuong soon after I have this baby, so we can start working on # 2 !!! I would not trust anyone else to help me, only Dr. Chuong :):):):):):):)

I became patient of Dr. Chuong 02/2012. He is very patient and detailed. He explained our options and advised which was the best route to take. We decided to go through a mini IVF since my insurance did not cover Fertility and it was a least expensive option. The first round was unsuccessful. We also found my husband's sperm was not strong enough so he was going to try to quit smoking and increase chances. We decided to try again later that year. We tried for a second round this time a full IVF treatment 11/2012. I am currently 5 months pregnant with twins. We are the so grateful and thankful for Dr. Chuong and his staff through this time. They accommodated my schedule, answered any question I had and received very good service throughout our visits. I would definitely recommend him to any couple trying to conceive.   


After failed three IVF cycles in two other programs in town, my husband and I were thrilled to have a healthy baby girl through IVF at Cooper Institute. We are now going through another IVF to get our second baby. Dr. Chuong is very knowledgeable and has good bedside manner. He is honest and sincere that he gave us all the treatment options with success rates, time commitment and costs, and allowed us to make the final decision. He is a real doctor caring for his patients from his heart, and definitely not a businessman. I will recommend him, Dr. Yang, the embryologist, Dr. Farmer, the IVF coordinator and his most caring and professional staff to all my families and staff without any reservation. This is an excellent facility offering world-class services with top notch success and unbelievably low costs.


We want to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks for everything Dr. Chuong did for us on our journey to try to become parents. Our journey has been long, fifteen years, with numerous ups and down, but thank to Dr. Chuong’s expertise, encouragement, guidance, and all of the support and help from his wonderful staff, the journey ended with success. It is still hard for us to believe that we are parents. We knew the outcome could have gone either way. However, if our IVF journey had not been successful, we would have had known in our hearts that Dr. Chuong and his entire staff had done everything that could have been done for us. In the end, we would either have the miracle that we have been praying such a long time for or the closure we needed to have in our life. We can’t say thank you enough for everything. We wish the best for Dr. Chuong and his entire staff as they continue to help couples hear those magical words “Congratulations! You are pregnant”.


I wanted to thank Dr. Chuong for his great help and support. I contacted him several months ago about my high FSH level. He was one of the few who gave me some hope of conceiving. I had one blood hormonal test at my local doctor's office and they determined that I would never have my own children. My only hope was to adopt a donor egg. After talking to Dr. Chuong, I did acupuncture, yoga, and modified my diet low in wheat, gluten and diary. Ten weeks ago, I was thrilled to find out I was pregnant. I can't thank Dr. Chuong enough for giving us the hope and courage to keep trying. He and his staff were always positive and encouraging when we talked. Even though I was on the East Coast, Cooper Institute made me feel like one of their local patients. Dr. Chuong is one of the most conscientious doctors I have ever met. He is not one of those who just want to sell IVF and donor eggs, and certainly does what the best for the patients. We hope Cooper Institute the very best.


I went to two doctors in the DFW area and neither one showed they really cared. I felt like just a number. Dr. Chuong however is is very very very thorough, knowledgeable and caring. He is very cautious and likes to take any extra steps just to be safe. I did IVF and now I am 5 months pregnant with twin girls. The front desk is not the most organized, but Dr. Chuong always knew my file to the "T". We drove 5 hours several times and it was all worth it. He didn't release me till I was nearly 13 weeks pregnant by constantly testing me and doing sonograms. My doctor that took over at 13 wks was very impressed on how closely he monitored me with all the tests & monitoring he did. Thank you Dr. Chuong!! Our dream of becoming parents is now a reality


My highest compliments to Dr. James Chuong & his medical team. I am a 48 y.o. Physician Assistant who received excellent care from Cooper Institute. He was one of three IVF physicians that I researched & visited. The other doctors didn't seem helpful or hopeful. Yet, when my hubby & I met w/Dr. Chuong he was open-minded and reasonable as he discussed the statistics and realities facing mothers w/ advanced maternal age. I am happy to report that I got pregnant ON MY VERY FIRST IVF CYCLE after the trial of a mock cycle. My son is healthy, happy & 6 months old now. At times, I did have to wait in the office to be seen. But, on SEVERAL occasions, the doc & his staff would wait for me or work me in to accommodate my work schedule. Lynn, the IVF Coordinator, always returned my calls & emails promptly, usually at the end of the day. The other staff members were helpful and professional. I recommend this physician without hesitation. He worked a miracle for us!


In 2008, I underwent an In Vitro Fertilization procedure as my husband had sperm problem. We had 3 excellent embryos transferred without success. Dr. Chuong suggested us have a laparoscopic surgery to evaluate and treat possible endometriosis, which could compromise the implantation process even given the quality embryos. Prior to the surgery, we did an extensive search and noted that Dr. Chuong was one of the top surgeons for infertility surgery in the area. He had performed more than 1,500 procedures since 1985 with excellent results. Many thanks to Dr. Chuong, who lasered all the endometriosis during the surgery, and I became pregnant via the 2nd IVF soon after surgery. Obviously his surgery had made the HUGH difference, and I have highly recommended him to my families and friends.


Doctor Chuong and his staff are very caring and responsible, they are always patient with me. Compared with other doctor, there is one thing worth mentioning and praising, his staff always tell you the result as soon as possible, you don't need to call them and ask for the result. I am so lucky to have Dr Chuong as my doctor. Now I have been pregnant for 5 months, everything is very good, I really appreciate Dr Chuong and his staff.


This is the most helpful infertility services I have ever received. I have been trying to get pregnant for years without success. Two clinics advised me to use donor eggs, which I really did not want to. I really appreciated Dr. Chuong and his staff who have worked with me with patience and care. Dr. Chuong is the most knowledgeable and caring physician I have ever met in my whole life. He always spends his time trying to customize my treatment. I cannot thank him enough for bring my family the MIRACLE BABY using my own egg! I highly recommend Dr. Chuong and his clinic to anybody who have difficulty in getting pregnant!


I went to Dr. Chuong office not knowing what to expect. We did back to back IUI and became pregnant the first time but had a chemical pregnancy. Then Dr. Chuong suggested IVF because of my age and I was so unsure but 9 months later and the birth of my son I am very confident in his professional opinion. Even my time with him did not result in a child I would still recommend him. He explained that the road may be long and that there was a percentage that IVF would not work but he did everything in his power to make work. He called me after hours while monitoring my lab values, he did ET on Sunday, returned all my calls personally. I would recommend him to everybody and I am currently going through my second round of IVF after an natural BFP that ended up ectopic.


We always wanted a baby, but always failed. I met Dr. Chuong since the end of 2008, he was patient and knowledgeable, but I thought IVF was a dream for me at that time. Later I visited several doctors, in 2010 we back to Dr. Chuong again, comparing with other doctors, we trusted Dr. Chuong more. Then we started our IVF journey … many testings, I was guided by Dr. Chuong and his excellent staffs—I was pregnant! It was my 1st IVF and it is sucessful, now my sweet heart could calls me mom in her 8 monthes old. We are greatly appreciated what Dr. Chuong and his staffs have done for our family, they totally changed our life.


Dr Chuong and his staff team were incredible,they made the burden we came with in their office light and most importantly,during our moments of anxiety their support and care saw us through.We greatly appreciate you all.Through you God made our dream of first pergnancy come true.May God strenghten you all in your services to humanity
