Q & A
Q: Why did you become a doctor/reproductive endocrinologist?
A: My interest in infertility started in medical school. I really loved embryology and the study of human development. It wasn’t until later, when my wife and I went through 3 years of infertility ourselves, that I decided to become a fertility specialist. I can really empathize with the stress that people are going through, both emotionally and financially, since my wife and I were once in that situation.
Q: What are your hobbies and why do you enjoy them?
A: I love to run. I find it incredibly relaxing and always feel great afterwards. I run the Tinina Q. Cade Foundation Race for the Family, which our practice sponsors just about every year, and have done half marathons. In college at Emory University, I used to run track and field and cross country. Over the past few years, I also developed a love of cycling. I have done several 100 mile (century) rides and a few criterium races. Our practice sponsors the Air Force Association ride each year in Arlington, and I enjoy doing that ride with my daughters.
Q: What about SGF makes you the most proud?
A: I am really proud of how many couples we have helped at Shady Grove Fertility. More than 40,000 babies and counting: That is such a staggering number of babies born to any one practice and I am really proud to be a part of the SGF team.
Q: Describe a time you were inspired by a patient.
A: Recently I had a couple that has had a horrible reproductive history. They have been patients of mine for a long time and they had difficulty getting pregnant, and then they had difficulty keeping the pregnancy with multiple losses. They naturally were mentally exhausted and fatigued from the multiple disappointments along the way. We finally were successful and they are about to deliver in a few months. The couple was inspirational in terms of their perseverance because many people would have given up long ago, but they stayed as optimistic as they could. The entire office is holding our breaths until we hopefully hear some really good news from the couple!
Q: What is your approach to helping patients who are struggling?
A: I can personally understand the struggles a couple goes through in the infertility process. It is extremely stressful and becomes a huge focus for the couple and their families. I try to provide as much reassurance as possible to the couple and to hang in there. At the same time, I don’t want to be unrealistic in terms of expectations so sometimes it can be quite a balancing act. The good news is that most couples are usually successful using some method, and I try to remind them of that.
I am really proud of how many couples we have helped at Shady Grove Fertility. More than 40,000 babies and counting.
“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. I cried the day I “graduated” because I had come to love them so much! My OB says all his SGF patients have ‘Dr. Khan withdrawal’ because they are so used to seeing him and talking to him every visit (which can be daily at the end of a treatment cycle!). He’s an incredible doctor and I’m so grateful.”
“My husband and I tried to conceive for about a year and a half before going to Dr. Khan. We had been told we had ‘unexplained infertility’. Dr Khan reassured us from the very beginning and was sure he would be able to help us. I was quickly diagnosed with PCOS and was started on a treatment protocol, which worked the very first try! We are so thankful for Dr. Khan and the SGF team! Dr. Khan is very caring; yet, he is very realistic and honest.”
“I highly recommend Dr. Khan and the entire staff at Shady Grove Fertility Leesburg office. His bedside manner was excellent and he really made us feel comfortable and confident as patients. We were greeted at every visit with a friendly smile from the staff and they really made us feel like they knew us on a personal level, not just another face in the crowd. Thanks to Dr. Khan and the wonderful nurses we now have the most amazing little boy whom is topping all the growth charts!”
“Dr. Khan is one of the most caring doctors I know. He is attentive and super knowledgeable when it comes to all things fertility related. I highly recommend him and the staff at the Leesburg location. They all work together to make sure I am well taken care of every time I go to the office. Dr. Khan has helped 3 of my friends achieve their dream of having a baby and I know he will help us realize that dream too.”
“Dr. Khan is quite possibly the most calm, kind, and patient doctor I have ever had. After four rounds of IUI, my confidence took a huge dip while his remained constant. He reassured me that I WOULD get pregnant and his support and positivity meant the world to me in those moments. I moved onto IVF and bam— I just graduated from Shady Grove Fertility and my husband and I are expecting our first child. I highly recommend Dr. Khan and the entire Leesburg staff; they become part of your family!”
“It has been SO wonderful to experience highly professional and courteous service from everyone at Shady Grove Fertility at the Leesburg office. It gives me faith that there are still nice people out there who care about their clients. Everyone from the front desk staff, to nurses, and even the phlebotomist who drew my blood on day 3 last month has been so nice to work with, and we haven’t even had a procedure done yet! Thank you, thank you!”
“Dr. Khan and the Shady Grove Fertility staff in Leesburg, VA truly became an extension to my family. They were there for me through the entire process and helped me get through all of the hard times. They listened and answered all of my questions and always made me feel like I was the most important client. I could not ask for a better group of people and I would recommend them to anyone.”
“Dr. Khan had to deliver us some very hard news to hear about my fertility. However, it was turned into a wonderful success story. He was knowledgeable, kind, gave us the facts we needed to make some hard decisions. He puts his patients first and is supported by a wonderful team. We now have a beautiful daughter and another on the way. thank you to Dr. Khan and the SGF team.”
“I would absolutely recommend Dr. Khan and the rest of the staff at Shady Grove Fertility Leesburg to everyone needing fertility help. I’ve known Dr. Khan for a few years now, but never wanted to believe that I needed help. I can honestly say that I shouldn’t have waited so long to reach out to Shady Grove Fertility. I had the support of everyone in the office. I am so thankful and grateful for everything that Shady Grove Fertility did. And without their help, I wouldn’t have my beautiful baby boy.”
