"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 can assist parents in conceiving a child. We fell so blesed 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 SGF was like my own personal cheerleading team. I will be forever grateful to the staff at SGF for their encouragement and support.”
"Dr. K has been more than pleasant to deal with. He has been available to answer any questions I have had."
"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."
"I love the warmth, I love the service I have received, I love everything about this office. I can't wait to start my family again."
"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. I would highly recommend Dr. K. The staff at the Waldorf Shady Grove office is also awesome. Our nurse Sarah Townsend was heaven sent. No matter how many questions we had, she was there to patiently answer them all. We miss the staff and Dr. K. If you are looking for top notch service, you will most definitely find it with Dr. K 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. kip made myself and my husband feel comfortable and supported. I cant 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. Kip and everyone at the Waldorf office!
"I couldn't have asked for a better team or Dr to accompany my husband & I thru our IVF journey. They are knowledgeable & will go above & beyond to make sure you are comfortable & understanding all aspects of your treatment. I can't express enough gratitude to them for our Rainbow after our Storms (plural). Thank you Dr K for always giving me the cons & not just the pros of my treatments. Thank you Nicky LaChapelle for answering my many many questions & thank you to the rest of the staff from the financial aspect to many blood draws, I would do it a thousand times over with you all by my side."
"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. K and Nikki were professional, friendly and compassionate-- which goes a LONG way during such a difficult process. Thank you to Dr. K, our nurse Nikki and all of the staff at Shady Grove Waldorf. Because of you, we look forward to our little miracle arriving this February!"
"I cannot say enough about Dr. K or his staff. They were always so kind, compassionate, patient, and caring during a very emotional and difficult time. With so many obstacles that get thrown at someone they never gave up and were always encouraging. I could not have gotten through this journey without Dr. K and his entire staff. And after we had almost given up hope, we are expecting our little one in June!!"
