"We wanted to thank you for helping us achieve our little blessing. It was a long road, but you gave us hope and helped us through it and for that, we are so very thankful. It's a total miracle that Shady Grove Fertility can assist parents in conceiving a child. We fell so blessed that it went so well and on our first try we were pregnant and carried the baby full term with no complications at all. Again, we want to thank you so much for helping us conceive our little boy."
"My husband and I do not have the words to thank you and your staff for the amazing gift of life. We are so blessed and fortunate to have conceived on our first IVF attempt. We welcomed a beautiful healthy baby boy this past March. Looking forward to working with you in the future."
“I have never had a doctor and nurse so connected and involved in my life to the point where I feel I must share my goals with them. I am thankful to Dr. Kipersztok for the suggestion that truly saved my live and helped me take control of my life.
“Dr. Kipersztok believed in me more than I did. Everyone at Shady Grove Fertility was like my own personal cheerleading team. I will be forever grateful to the staff at SGF for their encouragement and support.”
"I have been extremely pleased with the professional attitude given by all staff members that I have encountered. Each person has made me feel like my needs are important and I'm not a bother to them."
"Dr. Kipersztok is amazing!!!! He is very honest and open about the entire fertility process. He was very encouraging. My wife and I tried to conceive through the IUI process and it did not work the first time. Dr. Kipersztok called us personally to offer his condolences. He encouraged us not to give up and to keep trying. On our next try, we conceived and are expecting our first child. If you are looking for top notch service, you will most definitely find it with Dr. Kipersztok and the Shady Grove Fertility staff in Waldorf."
"He is the most experienced physician I have met for infertility issues. I have been struggling for 5 years and have seen quite a few physicians. Dr. Kipersztok made myself and my husband feel comfortable and supported. I can't say enough about his staff! I never waited more than 10 minutes at an appointment. The best part is we have been successful!! Thank you Dr. Kipersztok and everyone at the Waldorf office!"
"Words cannot express how thankful I am for Dr. Kipersztok and his staff as they guided my husband and I through our fertility journey. Our nurse Nikki was not only knowledgeable, she made herself available to us each step of the way (endless questions, emails and phone calls!!). Both Dr. Kipersztok and Nikki were professional, friendly and compassionate-- which goes a LONG way during such a difficult process. Thank you to Dr. Kipersztok, our nurse Nikki and all of the staff at Shady Grove Fertility Waldorf. Because of you, we look forward to our little miracle arriving this February!"
