Tara Kiser, DNP, FNP

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.
