Describe your experience with your nurse at Brigham & Women's Hospital. (Assigned nurse: Karen)

Describe your experience with Brigham & Women's Hospital.
The clinic has multiple doctors, which to me was good and bad. Good since if you needed a quick procedure and my dr. wasn't available, someone else could step in to do it. Bad because I didn't always get my doctor for my important procedures (transfers), though thankfully, she was able to do both of my egg retrievals.
