“I started at TIFC as a trainee eight years ago. Embryology is a fantastic career. I enjoy being part of the patient’s treatment, from the moment they enter our clinic for testing and evaluation, through egg collection, embryo development and embryo transfer, to the day we get the pregnancy results. The patient’s accomplishment is our accomplishment.”
