Describe your experience with Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Because it is a private practice, they are a bit moody or susceptible to the whims of emotion. There are also many high profile patients who visit the practice in fleets of fancy cars and armored vehicles. Be prepared

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
