Although I am thrilled to have graduated from Shady Grove Fertility because I am pregnant, I can’t deny being just a little sad to leave the practice. That’s how good my experience was.
When there was bad news, Dr. Murray and team mourned with me. When the good news came, they were obviously almost as happy as me. I won’t miss IVF cycles but I will miss Shady Grove Fertility.
