She is very cut and dry. Gets straight to the point. Limited personality.
Describe your experience with Virginia Fertility Associates.
The clinic is very organized and very welcoming. The inviting atmosphere helps ease the stress of infertility. Their strengths include customer service, cleanliness, and warmth. However, their weaknesses would be a delay in callbacks when leaving a voicemail. I almost never get someone to answer the phone right away and have to wait until the end of the day to receive a callback.
