Authentic - little bit of gushing.
19 June 2010 | by valleyofserenitySee all my reviews

We're talking late-80s era California medical clinic for women. They have everything, and everyone. The rich the poor, the greedy the non. Somewhere between Eve's rolled, taught blonde hair and Joanne's big glasses, they've got it pegged. It was truly something you'd expect to see were you to walk into a west-coast women's clinic in 1987. It also had the classics faced by true businesses and associates, from the openly lesbian Marilyn and her partner Patty, to the rough and tumble pro-choice of Eve and pro-life of Joanne. And than, it was trumped by Clooney and his cast in ER. (no REAL complaints, he was gorgeous, but this.... this one I miss).
