This year Pacific Fertility Center is undergoing a much anticipated structural and design change. The clinic located on the fifth floor at 55 Francisco Street was purchased in 1999 from a previous owner, and after 8 very busy years, we are ready for a facelift. The opportunity to renovate our space came last month when PFC was offered an adjacent suite vacated by another tenant.
