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 was interested in OB/GYN from the beginning of medical school since I am an ardent feminist. At the time I started my medical education, there were few women doctors and a very small number of female OB/GYNs (which is hard to believe given their predominance currently). I thought it was important to have a woman’s perspective for many gynecologic issues, and I still do!

Reproductive medicine deals with the foundation of life, literally. Through the practice of IVF, we have learned so much about the beginnings of human life and the things that lead to the birth of a healthy child. To me, that is very interesting and exciting.

In an era of corporate medicine, it is fundamental to maintain focus on both medical outcomes and patient satisfaction. I think SGF succeeds in keeping both focuses at its core.

 I am quiet but curious, and I love to hear people tell their stories 

I would like to visit more national parks in the western U.S. They are all amazing!

I love the outdoors — gardening, hiking, biking, and skiing. I find peace and tranquility there.

I grow lots of vegetables and some flowers in my garden. I like to make soups with the veggies and various things with rhubarb, which is my main “crop” — my rhubarb chutney gets rave reviews. I am also active in my community, participating in volunteer activities, singing in the choral group, and being involved in interfaith community service projects.
