Dr. Yazigi's Reviews
"We came to Dr Yazigi for a second opinion in our fertility journey and he was much informative and helpful then our previous doctor. He explained the process in greater detail and as to why we needed to go this direction. We are very happy with Dr Yazigi so far and are glad we decided to get a second opinion."
"My HSG with Dr Yazigi - he made me feel so comfortable when I was a nervous wreck after all of the horror stories I read online. He was wonderful."
"We were so thrilled with the excellent communication that Dr. Yazigi provided. It was a very comfortable environment. He was so open to any questions we had and was very thorough. We found this experience to be drastically better than the previous fertility clinic we attended."
"Dr Yazigi is a wonderful, and kind physician. He has excellent manners. It has been an honor and a privilege to have him as our fertility physician. Thanks to him I have two beautiful girls. It has been a pleasure to know and work with him. There are no words to thank him."
"Drs Yazigi, Katz and McClamrock all particpated in my care and I cannot thank them enough for their kind and compassionate care. With them I felt a sense of hope that I had not previously felt such that no matter what our outcome, I knew we were in the right hands. The nurses, staff, ACS center staff should be commended for the exceptional job they do. I do not have enough words to express my appreciation. I truly feel blessed to have had the opportunity to be a patient of Shady Grove's in one of life's most stressful circumstances. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
