The clinics [Advanced Fert RE Institute] is state of the art! Everything from labs to procedures can be done under one roof...Tiffany Rn was awesome! We communicated via phone and email! She answered my questions and kept me informed....I don't know the ladies title. But she would call you back you to the back, she checked my vitals. Not very friendly . I had to speak to her first! None of staff wore name badges.
