Describe your experience with your nurse at Reproductive Science Center. (Assigned nurse: Kat and now currently Sara)
Again, above and beyond. The classes with catherine were informative, the delivery of the meds from the pharmacy she recommended were amazing. They delivered our meds to our hotel while in dianeyland. They waited in a refrigerator until we arrived. Sara (with this current IVF cycle) has also been amazing. She was a listening ear when I miscarried. She was compassionate, sympathetic and encouraging when I needed it the most. She knows our family when we go in for labs and goes out of her way to see us before we leave. Catherine was the same way also. All around beautiful people in the right profession.

Strengths: hands down the most professional clinic with the most skilled professional staff. It seems as though they specifially hand pick their employees. Not just your run of the mill hiring process, but they deliberately choose staff who are all equally compassionate, professional wonderful people.
The weakness: they make it hard to leave. They give you a "graduation package" when you're ready to move onto your your regular OB. I love my OB but oh how I wish they could see me through the actual delivery process.
