Q&A

Q & A

Q: What are your hobbies?

A:

For the mind: reading, sports, and a nice hot sauna. For the body: triathlons, skiing, gardening, and canoeing (pretty much anything outside). For the soul: a big dinner party with family and friends, and having a good time.

Q: What was your favorite vacation?

A:

Traveling through southern Italy was breathtaking. It was a perfect combination of history, food, beauty, and life. You get pulled right into it when you’re there, and together with my wife it was a joy to join right in.

Q: Why did you become a doctor?

A:

When I was growing up, I volunteered as a boy scout at the local hospital and during the summer at a camp for children with diabetes. It all started with small roles, but more and more, it left me with a sense of fulfillment and meaning, which I was curious to explore further. The opportunities to contribute and make a difference in medicine abound. This naturally led to becoming a physician, and growing through each new step, the feeling of purpose and meaning after a day of work has never left. Happily, I know with what I do now, it will always stay that way.

Q: What about SGF makes you the most proud?

A:

The way to a happy, healthy family can be confusing, frustrating, and sometimes even frightening, and I am proud of the way we guide our patients through this. It is a privilege to work with a couple to build a family in the right way for them. I have seen a number of fertility centers, and I found no comparison to Shady Grove Fertility. I am proud to work here every day, and know I am offering the very best that there is to my patients. Making important contributions to my patients and the field is very important to me. I truly believe there isn’t a better place I could do this than Shady Grove Fertility.

Q: What’s on your bucket list?

A:

Swimming the Chesapeake and the run across Maryland are next!

The way to a happy, healthy family can be confusing, frustrating, and sometimes even frightening, and I am proud of the way we guide our patients through this.

Reviews

"I never take the time to write reviews but given that Dr Doyle had such an impact on my life I felt the need to share my experience with other women who are maybe in a similar situation. I have been trying to conceive for years and underwent a variety of different fertility treatments before I finally saw Dr Doyle at SGF. His bedside manners, kindness and caring attitude our outstanding. I couldn't have been in better hands. He went through all different treatment options with me, explained their risks and chances of success to me and never made me feel rushed though I know he is extremely busy. I am planning on seeing him again for my second child - that's right, it finally worked!!"

"My husband and I couldn't have had a more pleasant experience during a difficult time in our lives. Dr Doyle always took the time to explain every step of the process and made sure we felt comfortable with all decisions and all our questions were answered. He even checked on us on his weekends to give us an update on how our embryos were developing. He is very caring and thorough. We, together with our newborn daughter give him our highest recommendation."

"It is always nice to see you for my procedures. Your diligent care and compassion put me right at ease. Thank you for everything."

"I appreciate the wonderful care you took of us during our recent infertility cycles. You have a wonderful, caring bedside manner, and it was always reassuring to me to see you come through the door for the ultrasound visits as my cycles progressed. We will always remember and be grateful for the fact that you helped care for us on the days of our successful retrieval and transfer. Thank you for your care and for helping us become more than a family of two."

"I wanted to take a moment and thank you for the kindness and support you showed my husband and me. Through both the good and bad appointments, we looked forward to seeing you, both because we knew you would take the time to answer our questions and also because you always made us feel better about what was going on.
I imagine you would excel at what ever 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."

"We can't thank you enough for guiding us through the incredible journey of IVF and finally bringing us to success. When we first met you during round one, we were instantly comforted by you and your relaxing manner. I was scared out of my mind, and you made me laugh and feel safe at the same time. IVF changes people's lives, and you were a part of changing ours. We will never forget you, and the wonderful person you are. Thank you for making our dreams become a reality."

"Dr. Doyle and his nurse Azure are professional, courteous, and caring. I wish I could have this experience with all my doctors' offices.
Dr. Doyle and his nurse Azure always returned my calls by Close of Business on the day I called. I never waited more than a few hours for my calls to be returned. They very much made me feel valued and took such good care of me. Aside from these individuals who I spent quite a bit of time with, all the ancillary staff including RNs and Phlebotomists were all kind, caring and made me feel important.
The waiting room can be a bit intimidating given how many people they serve, but I see this as a good thing, given that I was able to see them seven days a week. For example, I couldn't get the needle off my pen on a Sunday and I went in and they were able to help me. That's definitely a perk of a large organization like SFC. I had a great experience and would highly recommend them."

"Doctor Doyle is wonderful. He is very optimistic, positive and has a great bedside manner. He has helped us have 2 beautiful babies. We always felt comfortable asking him anything. He is very knowledgeable and a great listener."

"Dr. Doyle is a genuinely nice guy. He was caring, patient, open to questions and suggestions, made us feel valued and not like another number at a facility that sees a lot of patients. He is also very knowledgeable- our first IVF attempt with him was a success, and we have a beautiful 7- week old daughter now."

"All the staff at Shady Grove Fertility were more than amazing. They made you feel like you weren't just another patient. I genuinely felt welcomed when I came to the office. Dr. Doyle's main office was not at my main location, so I only got to see him at the initial consult, however he would always call me after my appointments with results to encourage and eventually congratulate me! I immediately felt a positive connection with Dr. Doyle, as him and my husband share the same name, but he was very supportive and encouraging about this stressful journey and I can't thank them enough."

"Hands down the most wonderful Reproductive Endocrinologist we have ever dealt with, and we have dealt with a few. The practice runs smoothly and effectively. This doctor knows his field inside out. He is a very capable clinician when it comes to tricky procedures... Yet he is still down to earth, respectful and gentle. He also truly cares about his patients and it shows. He would be the one to call you personally and make the effort to be there for you at every step. Can't say enough!!"

"I recommend Dr. Doyle to everyone! I was at such a low point by the time I met him, and from our very first meeting, he made me hopeful, he made me feel understood, and he listened to me put all my "crazy" out on the table. He responded to every concern I had, no matter how trivial. He is always patient, and took so much time with my husband and me. There are definitely other capable doctors, but this was the perfect fit for me. He explains without ever condescending, and he went above & beyond."

"Dr. Doyle is incredibly compassionate, knowledgeable, and personable. I'd recommend him to anyone looking into egg freezing or infertility treatments."

"Dr. Doyle is very thorough and personable. I'd recommend him to anyone looking into egg freezing or infertility treatments."

"Dr. Doyle is a wonderful doctor who helped us bring our two children (now ages 3 and 3 months) into our lives. From our first meeting four years ago, Dr. Doyle was compassionate, patient with my many questions, and always took the time to explain why we were doing things a certain way. We didn't always have good news (several failed transfers), and he was always kind and encouraging as we forged on. I would not hesitate to recommend SGFC, and especially Dr. Doyle."
