Very compassionate
Describe your experience with Pacific In Vitro Fertilization Institute.
Organized and on top of everything! The clinic was always accommodating whenever we had questions or concerns. They were compassionate when we found out our pregnancy had ended and made sure we knew that they would be there when we were ready to try again. Infertility is tough to go through and having an office that will make themselves available for you is much appreciated.
