Why is SGF the preferred choice for fertility care among referring physicians and patients?
We’ve compiled 10 reasons our patients say SGF stands apart from the rest and why 13 of our physicians were named Washingtonian Top Docs in 2018.
1). Exceptional Fertility Care
We offer more than 300 years of combined reproductive medicine and infertility expertise. Each of our physicians understand the importance of interpersonal connection and realize that trust must be earned and relationships must be nurtured. Our physicians make it a priority to understand patients’ concerns in order to tailor their approach to each patient’s unique needs.
2). Unmatched Compassion to our Patients
When skilled team members build caring, trusting, and collaborative relationships with patients, studies reveal more appropriate medical decisions, better patient adherence with treatment plans, and less costly healthcare outcomes result.
3). High Success Rates
With more than 50,000 babies born since the practices inception, our success rates rank among the highest in the nation.
4). Transparent Communication
Not only do we place a high value on providing transparent information about our success, we also provide information for how best to decode and interpret success rates. Each year we publish an IVF Program Report, which highlights the practice’s in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rates as well as our center’s most notable milestones and accomplishments over the previous year.
5). Over 25 Years of Experience
Since we perform over 6,000 in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles, including over 1,000 egg donation cycles, and an equal number of ovulation induction and intrauterine insemination (IUI) cycles annually, the quantity of data we can collect in a few months may take smaller centers years to gather. We view this as both a privilege and a responsibility—to make discoveries that benefit all patients struggling with infertility, not just our own.
6). State-of-the-Art Labs and Treatment Advances
Because of the remarkable advancements we made in our embryology lab and treatment protocols, we are able to help couples achieve pregnancy in less time and with more success, with pregnancies that result in healthier babies than ever before. Learn more about how innovations such as vitrification, frozen embryo transfers, and genetic testing of embryos are progressing reproductive technology.
7). Robust Research Program to Improve Treatment Outcomes
We are one of only a few private practice fertility centers in the country to employ a full-time dedicated research team who perform under the direction of Research Director, Kate Devine, M.D., and Research Scientist, Kevin S. Richter, Ph.D.,. Our research enlightens us to refine our practices so that more patients can achieve the goal of successful pregnancy.
8). 32 Convenient Locations
With patients coming to SGF from all 50 states and 38 countries around the world, early morning monitoring appointments, and concierge-level patient service, are making access to world-class personalized infertility care more convenient.
9). Affordable Solutions with Financial Guarantee and Discount Programs
We offer patients a myriad of discount, guarantee, and multi-cycle treatment financial programs, as well as accept more than 30 insurance providers. Our financial counselors stand ready to help patients navigate through insurance and other financial options to more easily access the care that they need.
10). SGF Support Network
Our support networks are rich with resources and educational opportunities. Access to our SGF experts through monthly education events both online and in-person address concerns and answer questions about moving forward in your fertility journey. We encourage you to access the resources we provide to help you connect, engage, and become educated about infertility.
What SGF Patients are Saying
“This was truly a remarkable experience. I really appreciated the genuine care provided at Shady Grove [Fertility]. The service, technology, and standards are top class. You are treated personally and your wellbeing is in their hearts’ best interest. Thank you.” – Patient of Dr. Levy
“The service at Shady Grove [Fertility] was outstanding. Dr. Nair was supportive, friendly, and honest. All traits you want in a doctor who specializes in such a sensitive field. There was no question that I couldn’t email my nurse about, the facilities were clean and relaxing, and I never had to wait over my appointment time. Everyone was just fantastic. Thank you for making our dreams a reality.”
“Dr. Browne was especially easy to talk to and very informative. She is a doctor that truly cares about her patients and does everything she can to help them conceive. Thanks to her we are now expecting! Every question I had, no matter when I had it, I was able to get an answer within 24 hrs. Being well informed, feeling like my doctor actually cared, and the friendliness and ease of working with the support staff made this last year of working with Shady Grove [Fertility] a pleasant experience, no matter how awkward and uncomfortable you are physically.”
“I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Moon. She is patient, determined, compassionate, encouraging, fierce, funny, and incredibly smart. I am so happy that she was our doctor during this difficult time, and I am so grateful to her for making us a family of 3!”
“Dr. Shin was amazing today. After our last urologist experience I was nervous but was put at ease immediately after meeting him. He was kind, easy to talk to, and did not rush us out of the office. He took the time to explain every single detail and made sure we had all of the right information to make the best decision. Dr. Shin is wonderful!”
“Dr. Sagoskin is such an amazing doctor. He is knowledgeable, professional, caring, and helpful. He was always there to answer our questions and help us through this long and trying process. We were always confident in his level of expertise, skill, and dedication. We feel blessed to have had him as our doctor. You can tell Dr. Sagoskin really cares about his patients and does everything in his power to help them achieve their goal of having a child.”
“Dr. Saffan is the best. I will forever be grateful to him for my beautiful son, my current pregnancy, and for his compassion during rough patches in our journey. Dr. Saffan is beyond knowledgeable, patient, kind and has a great sense of humor.”
“Dr. Stillman and Joy both provided superior service. Fertility treatment is tough emotionally and physically to go through. I believe I was provided the best medical care and emotional support through the entire process. I would recommend Dr. Stillman to others.”
“We don’t think our baby would have been born if not for the dedication and professionalism of you and your colleagues at Shady Grove Fertility. Everyone there will forever be in our hearts.” – Patient of Dr. Chang
“My experience at SGF was exceptional from start to finish. I was constantly impressed with the attention, kindness, and personal approach to care I received from Dr. Khan and his entire team.”
“We had been seeking fertility treatments for three years, and had three different providers before we got connected with Dr. Widra. He, and his team have been incredible. They were always helpful, reachable, attentive, personable/caring and met us where we were at in our process, physically and emotionally. And the best part, after five years of trying to get a baby, we’ve got a healthy baby girl on the way in January! (IVF, first time).”
I imagine you would excel at whatever specialty you decided on. Yet, I cannot imagine you doing anything else. Your natural sincere compassion, combined with your openness and sensitivity make you a doctor that is perfectly suited for helping families through what is often an endlessly heartbreaking process. Thank you. We are both so very grateful for the kindness you showed us.” Patient of Dr. Doyle
“His name, in our house, was synonymous with ‘hero.” Patient of the late Dr. Greenhouse
