How was your experience with Trimble Spitzer at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth?
She is the one who diagnosed me with stage 4 endometrial hyperplasia and she was the one who preformed my D&C. None of my other doctors cared that I rarely had a cycle. No one explained how dangerous that was. I cannot say enough about Dr. Spitzer!! She is the absolute sweetest and she cares so much about me! I’m currently on my second round of Femara with times intercourse between uterine biopsies to see if my condition has improved.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I cannot remember the nurse’s I had for my follicle scan, but he was very nice and even explained to me how PCOS worked.
Sometimes it’s a little frustrating when Dr. Spitzer and I discuss a procedure, but then it’s not added to my notes. Trying to explain this to the front desk is well... feels hopeless unless I actually talk to her personally.
Describe your experience with Naval Medical Center Portsmouth.
The strengths are definitely the compassion and knowledge of infertility Dr. Spitzer has.
The only weakness I can think of is relaying information to her nurses can be a little lost, but nothing an email directly to her can’t fix.
