    Lori was great! My only suggestion would be that I was very uncomfortable afterwards and I don?t know that I was well advised as to how much it would hurt for a while... just a heads up for future patients.

    I had an ultrasound appointment and the follow up with doc was scheduled for 3 hrs later, but since I was upset about having a miscarriage, so doc saw me right away. I?m so happy I did not have to wait. Everyone was so kind!
