Patient Testimonial
Dr. Libby was just amazing. We had a long journey and she was right there with us in the trenches. She was our third fertility doctor. She thought outside the box, was willing to try new things, was open to our questions, and used her team to help us.

I went through IVF with Dr. Humm. I felt heard, comforted, and comfortable the whole way. The support staff were beyond fantastic and turned what would have been a scary experience, into something that my husband and I never felt like we were navigating alone.

Dr. Libby listened to our every concern and communicated with us when we needed it, never making us feel pushed to the side or that she was to busy to be there for us.

From the first consultation until our final appointment Dr. Doyle was empathetic, compassionate, and very easy to talk to. He reviewed my diagnosis and treatments each step of the way and changed our protocols accordingly to result in a positive and viable pregnancy.

I had an ultrasound and an HSG done at the Norfolk office. Every staff member was amazing – so gentle, comforting and supportive. I’m very grateful for that.

Dr. Banks is attentive, kind, and professional. She answered all of our questions.

Q&A

I’ve been in the women’s health field my entire nursing career, a large part of that spent in labor and delivery at Inova Fairfax Hospital. Being able to help women in their fertility journey as a Nurse Practitioner after years helping women deliver babies is special to me. It’s like I’ve come full circle.

I was born and raised in Boston, MA, so I’m a Boston sports fan by default! However, I’ve been residing in Northern Virginia for 15+ years with my husband and our three young kids. I love to cook, bake, read, craft, and take the kids hiking across all the National Parks.
