I would not want to work with anyone else as a donor
I am the type of person who constantly wants to help others, and that is why I became an egg donor. I am so happy that I can help others continue building their families. Becoming an egg donor has been one of the most amazing experiences I have the pleasure of being a part of.
One reason this experience has been so wonderful is because of Debra Arkels. She is one of the most helpful, patient, and accommodating individuals one could ever work with. Debra always goes above and beyond for her donors, intended parents, and every person she works with. I have only donated once, but I am currently in the process of my second donation, and all this time Debra has been so cooperative, understanding and interested in my needs and overall well-being.
From day one Debra has been there and that makes this experience even greater. I would not want to work with anyone else as a donor. I am so excited to continue working with her and helping others complete their families.
We made the decision to fly across the country to use Complete Conceptions
Using a donor is a major emotional and financial decision, and Debra has been by our side through the entire process. She helped us find a perfect donor match and has made sure everything went smoothly; from the legal aspects to the logistics of harvest and transfer. She truly cares about both her families and her donors and makes sure that everyone has a positive experience.
After a lot of shopping and interviewing, we made the decision to fly across the country to use Complete Conceptions because it provides a detail-oriented, personalized experience. The donor process is a major investment and has the potential to be very stressful. Debra makes it painless and is a joy to work with at every step. We are so happy with our decision to use Complete Conceptions and are expecting a little girl next month!
Complete Conceptions has made our dream a reality! After 8 years of failed treatments, we made the difficult decision to use a donor. Debra has made everything a breeze from start to finish, and we are in the final trimester of a normal, healthy pregnancy. We are so happy with our decision and would recommend Complete Conceptions to anyone struggling with the same situation.
I can’t wait to help more couples complete their families!
I am so glad to be a part of helping families have children. Being an egg donor has by far been one of the most incredible experiences I have been able to be a part of. Debra was helpful and patient with me in explaining the process of egg donation, as well as easy to get a hold of during each medication and surgery cycle. I have worked with Debra through five donation cycles, and each time she was attentive to my needs, checked on my health during the medication cycles and after the surgeries, and kept in touch with me in the following weeks to make sure I was still doing well. I can’t imagine working with anyone but Debra as a donor, and I can’t wait to help more couples complete their families!
I am thankful for the ability to help others grow their families
As a Mother, Daughter, and 5-time Egg Donor, I am forever grateful for the opportunity to have worked with Debra Arkels. Egg Donation is a remarkable gift. A gift Debra brings to so many who may have lost hope in their journey to grow their families. Each cycle I have completed began with Debra’s encouraging spirit. She connected me with impressive and revered doctors who continued the egg donation process. My cycles concluded with genuine care and follow up via phone calls, emails, and text messages. Debra’s warmth and grace could not be missed through the wire. I am thankful for the ability to help others grow their families. I am blessed to have worked with Debra Arkels.
Thank you Debra!!
I am so glad I decided to become an Egg Donor with Complete Conceptions!
I am so glad that I decided to donate eggs and to work with Debra; I’m looking forward to donating again so I can work with her more. Debra is extremely knowledgeable about the process and was able to explain every step of the process to me on Day One. Which is perfect for someone like me who wants to understand the big picture.
Likewise, Debra is reliable. She does things in a timely manner and always checks in with you about the status of your donor application, if families are interested, etc. I appreciated Debra’s thoroughness. From the beginning of the process she was consistent and up front with me – I knew exactly what I was signing up for. Her thoroughness was not only good to make sure that her donors are truly prepared and won’t fall through, but it is genuine for the donors as well. As a donor, I knew that Debra was looking out for me and wanted to make sure this process was the right decision for me, too.
Donating eggs is a long process with all of the medications, contracts, and background information that must be obtained. Working with Complete Conceptions was amazing during this process because you always knew what was going on and what the next steps were. I also enjoyed Debra’s team; she coordinates for you to meet with a lawyer to go through the contract and with a psychologist for an evaluation. Like Debra, the lawyer and psychologist were thoughtful, genuine, and accommodating. They all were approachable so you could get all of your questions answered and anxieties eased before undergoing stimulation.
Finally, the best thing about working with Complete Conceptions as an egg donor is that Debra truly cares. You can tell she wants to help in this beautiful gift of helping people have their own families, and she is vulnerable and will talk about her own fertility experience to have her beautiful family. Debra checked in with me every step of the way because she cared how I was feeling and she was always there for ‘insider tricks’ about how to reduce bruising or even just to say she hoped I had a good day.
I would never work with any other group. Debra was meant to be in this field and she is darn-good at her job. She turned egg donation into a meaningful experience, and I’m grateful that I worked with her.
Working with Debra I found her to be trustworthy, well respected in the industry
My name is A. and I would like to share my story working with Complete Conceptions specifically Debra Arkels.
A bit of history about myself. I was married and knew I wanted children but didn’t really have the desire till I was in my early 30’s. I waited to have children because I was career driven and was told by several doctors that I had time. I started getting worried when I turned 38 and had not conceived a child and so was my husband. By this time, we got a dog hoping that this would fill the hole and loneliness in my heart and soul. Our dog helped a lot, but I still had the longing for a family.
I made the decision to go down the long road of fertility. I went to very reputable doctors and clinics and did 6 rounds of fertility at significant cost at various facilities. Nine years later, I was about to call it quits but since I am not one to give up I decided to try one more time. A friend of mine headed me in the direction of another reproductive physician. The doctor’s office that put me in touch with a couple of egg donation companies and one of those was Complete Conceptions.
I contacted both egg donation companies and decided to work with Debra Arkels because she was so knowledgeable. Her database of donors was smaller than other agencies but I had a sense that her donors had the proper medical checks to become donors.
One year later I gave birth to our son my first attempt working with Debra Arkels and Dr. Gago.
My story doesn’t end here. Our son wanted a brother, so I decided to try again. I reached out to Debra Arkels. At the time her donor list was short and I couldn’t find the right person. I went with another agency. The experience turned out to be a nightmare. I found a donor, but as I was getting ready to start my medications I received a call that my donor was no longer available till later in the year. She wanted to finish school first. Reasonable but one would expect that this information would have precluded her from being on her list of donors. I found another donor and redid my paperwork to find out again, had begun my medications, that this donor also couldn’t proceed. The point is Debra’s list may be smaller than other programs, but I never had an issue with my choices not being available per the legal agreement. My advice is don’t be fooled by long lists of donors. They may not be there when you need them.
Working with Debra I found her to be trustworthy, well respected in the industry and awesome to work with.
Getting back to our dog, he is still with us 15 years later and shares our home with our son and twin girls.
A huge thank you to Debra Arkels and Dr. Gago.
