opening quotation mark
My favourite thing about being an embryologist is being able to help our patients understand their treatment and guide them through the process. I hope that I help our patients feel understood and valued. I love working in the laboratory and it still absolutely astounds me how amazing embryo development is. It really is a privilege to be able to do this work.
