A Special Thank You to my Mentor, Randine Lewis

I would not be able to share this information with my patients if it were not for my mentor, Randine Lewis. Indeed it is largely due to Randine's generous support and sharing of her many years of experience of treating infertility that I have been able to help my patients bring new life into this world.

As practitioners, we all have accumulated knowledge from our educational training. But it is the mentors we find, or perhaps find us, that help us transform our knowledge into wisdom. Not only has Randine been instrumental in the formation of my approach to treating infertility, but she is also an inspiration as a true "healer". Randine is always willing to share her experience and wisdom with other practitioners, and as a result more people are blessed with a child of their own.

For being my mentor, for answering my innumerable questions and your guidance with difficult cases, and for always being there for me when I need your support and words of encouragement, I thank you Randine!

With Sincere Warmth,

Lorne (2003)
