When I found out that I am pregnant, I was afraid and didn’t know what to do. Even though I am set for wedding next year, I wasn’t ready for the pregnancy. My fiance and I were searching about abortion options, we found earlyoptions. At first glance, I wasn’t too sure about this method, I was kind of skeptical about it. However, the reviews were amazing and surely knew that it was legitimate.
I was afraid that people might judge me but the staff in the clinic was absoultely friendly and caring. They made me feel very comfortable.
I have to say, the whole procedure took about 2-3minutes.
I generally have a high pain tolerance, but this procedure was so painful even though they have injected numbing shot. It was something that I’ve never felt before, it really was painful but the staff and my husband were holding my hands and helped me get through.
After the procedure, the pain persisted for about 10minutes. (Fortunately, the clinic provided a strong dosage of ibuprofen).
After the pain got better, Dr. Kang nicely walked through the after care and helped me understanding better and feel less guilty about it. I was happy to leave the office, knowing the fact that my pregnancy is terminated on the spot.
I really appreciate their support and kindness.
Wow, I couldn't find words to fairly describe how wonderful the people at this practice were. Early options felt more than home away from home. They exceeded my expectations so much, that I can't even understand why anyone would give any review less than 5 stars. The team has been so kind and treated me with such respect and kindness throughout the entire process. (I had to fly out of state to them, because I had a terrible experience before from my own 5 stars clinic in my home town. Almost No waiting time at all and not only that, Dr. Fleishman and her team feel like God sent angels that hold your hand through one of the toughest times; that any woman could go through, with a deep kindness and genuine, unconditional care. They went above and beyond in every little detail. The procedure itself was almost like a normal papsmere. Almost no pain at all. The nurse and the doctor talk you through the entire process and I was done before I even realised we started. It felt like the treatment you get at a 5 stars resort. The office feels much like a home rather than a cold clinic. The most important part that I can't stress enough, is how kind the entire team was, especially Dr. Fleishman herself, who is on a mission to ease Womens suffering, and you can rightaway feel that she is given a heavenly HEALING touch. At the office, You don't feel rushed, you are listened to with sincere hearts and given all the time you need. A few lines can't do justice to how wonderful the people are here. Way better than the good reviews you read. And I can assure you that any bad review that was written about them, is most definitely from some payed propaganda party. A procedure of this sort is certainly a devastating process that any mother could go through, and at soft touch, you will be consoled and respected through any decision you make, and it is much much much less invasive or painful almost to a 1 in a scale of 1 to 10, on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. God bless you all at Soft Touch team. And FYI, Dr. Fleischman has such a sweet soul that radiates from her when you are around her, that makes her emminate beauty inside and out. You will understand when you meet her.
Early Options is the best doctor's office I've ever attended and I have been to many in different countries. The nurses and doctor were sweet and compassionate and sympathetic and very educated. I'd recommend every woman I know to go there. I appreciate all they did for me from beginning to end!!!
On my way to the clinic, I had a fear of being judged, but as soon as I walked in I was met with compassion and understanding. The space felt like a mixture of a doctors office, a spa, and your own living room - professional, calming, and comfortable. The nurse treated me like an old friend, swapping our favorite “Friends” episodes. While the Doctor treated me like an intelligent human being. She explained everything to me in a simple and direct way without ever talking down to me. Life-altering decisions are best made when you have all of the information and at Early options I felt educated and heard, not belittled and lectured.
I really cannot speak highly enough of the people who helped me and my overall experience at early options. I was so happy to be able to bring my partner with me, but honestly, I would have traded him for my nurse, Haley, and Dr. Fleischman. They know what you are going through and the best way to be supportive. Dr. Fleischman has an exceptional level of empathy. She made me feel incredibly safe during an emotional time.
I first contacted Early Options in May of last year when I discovered that I was pregnant. The same day I called to schedule an appointment, I wound up having a miscarriage, and so I wound up not needing the appointment after all. Not only were they incredibly compassionate over the phone, they refunded me my entire deposit. Fast forward to Election Day this year and I discover that, somehow, I'm pregnant again. Of course, I'm distraught--we were being so careful, and yet here we were. Thankfully, I already knew about Early Options from last year, so I contacted them right away.
The only downside was that I had to wait a week in order to be seen (I was only four weeks and two days pregnant when I found out, and you have to be at least five weeks in order to have the SofTouch procedure or the pill). I chose the SofTouch procedure because I had spent hours in agonizing pain when I had my miscarriage, and I wanted to try and avoid that this time around.
The day of the procedure, I was incredibly nervous, mostly about the possible physical pain--I have a pretty high pain tolerance, but my cramps have always been killer. It's the one pain that can send me into tears. Unfortunately, because my pregnancy was so early, the procedure went a lot more roughly than either myself or Dr. Fleischman predicted, which caused a considerable amount of pain--I'm actually pretty embarrassed with how much I wound up yelling/vocalizing through it (I really thought because of how horrid my regular cramps are, I'd be able to handle this no problem). Thankfully, Dr. Fleischman and the nurse who was in the room with me (I'm so sorry, I can't remember what her name was) were both incredibly compassionate and kept telling me how much of a trooper I was. Once Dr. Fleischman was done, I experienced some intense cramping that took about 15 minutes or so to disappear, but once it did, I felt nothing but relief. I definitely needed to take the rest of the day to rest, but overall I felt completely relieved.
Despite the intensity of the experience, I'm so glad that I chose the SofTouch procedure. I'm so grateful that I had the option to have a procedure that took five minutes as opposed to another agonizing series of hours while waiting to pass the pregnancy. Possibly most of all, I am so grateful that I was able to make the choice that was right for me, and that I was able to have this procedure done in such a compassionate and private space. Having my husband with me as my moral support was a HUGE help, and I'm sad that more clinics don't allow that option.
Big, BIG thank you to everyone at Early Options.
Words are not enough to express how much I appreciate the excellent care and the emotional support I received in the clinic. The instructions before and after the procedure were clear, well explained, and successfull. It took me less than 15 minute to go back to my regular life with no pain and no ramping. Million thanks to Dr Fleishman and her team.
The women at Early Options clinic were incredibly respectful, wise, professional, and kind. I felt safe and in good hands the entire time during my abortion. My experience felt valued and normalized at the same time, in that it was a big deal and treated as an important decision and procedure in my life, but also it felt like nothing out of the ordinary, and nothing to be ashamed of. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I would recommend Early Options clinic for anyone needing an abortion.
I had a horrible experience at a different “abortion options” clinic. Which gave no options at all, just a group of people pressuring me to keep a child I couldn’t care for. I found early options through google and all the reviews made me give it a try. I called at 7:30 am and the receptionist was very calm and comforting. I was able to get an appointment for 11:30 the same day. I went in for the procedure only to find out that I was already having a miscarriage and the procedure wasn’t necessary. But they still drew my blood to make sure. They refunded me $250 of the $500 that I paid as down payment since the procedure wasn’t needed, which I was grateful for. If you need to end your pregnancy choose this place. This is how these types of clinic’s should be run.
I honestly never thought I would be in the situation of needing an abortion and prior to my appointment, I never planned on writing a review. However, my extremely positive experience compelled me to write a review. And truthfully all the excellent reviews about Early Options were the only reason I ended up here. After endless research I decided that this was my only option. As a health conscious person it is very scary to trust a new doctor especially when there is very little research and information on the procedure. But all the positive reviews speak the truth. Fortunately, I have not had any prior abortion experiences, but it is clear from reading other reviews that my experience at Early Options is not the norm for women in this situation. The entire staff is so understanding and helpful throughout the entire process. I was extremely anxious the morning of the procedure but after speaking with Dr. Fleischman, I immediately knew I was in great hands. She has a soft, yet professional demeanor that is so comforting during the process. She took the time to talk me through everything and answer any questions or concerns I had. During the aspiration procedure I experienced some intense cramping which was not pleasant but certainly manageable. After about 15-20 minutes I was ready to leave and my morning sickness was already completely gone! I started cramping and spotting about 5 days after the procedure and a quick call to Dr. Fleishman assured me that this was normal. I ended up spotting on and off for about 2-3 weeks total. Because I was traveling out of the country 2 weeks after the procedure I kept in touch with Dr. Fleischman and the office and even went back in to ensure that everything was ok before my trip. While everyone's experience is slightly different, it is good to know that Dr. Fleischman is available throughout the entire process to answer questions, not just during the initial procedure. She is truly an incredible woman that is dedicated to bringing this comfortable, safe, and humane service to women. Every single woman should have this option and be treated with this level of respect and care. Thank you to the entire office for helping to make this very difficult situation into a more simple, positive one.
This decision was a very emotional and difficult one for me, as I never thought I would find myself in this situation. I arrived with my partner in a total emotional and devastated state, and each and every person was so patient and caring with me, allowing me the time to discuss and understand everything before I went through with the procedure. Dr. Fleischman sat down with me and my partner and talked with me about our situation and couldn't be more present, caring, and gentle with me. The procedure is not comfortable and at times painful, but it is very short and over before you know it. Then they give you plenty of time afterwards to recover and rest with your partner before gathering your things to head out. Dr. F even spoke with us after and I found it to be a pivotal and inspirational moment in my life. She and her entire staff are doing such important work and doing it in the most kind and caring way possible I couldn't be more grateful for their crucial services. I was so amazed and changed by the experience and it helped me self reflect in a way I didn't know was possible. For ANY woman having to make this difficult decision, THIS IS THE PLACE. Truly, look no further, this is how this experience is supposed to be handled. With humanity and care....I am so grateful for these women!
