“We absolutely loved Dr. Moon! She was very calm, reassuring and knowledgeable and made the whole process much more bearable. At one point, she even spent time consoling me after one of our first few cycles didn’t work. We were sad to not be pregnant but also devastated financially because our insurance didn’t cover much. Dr. Moon not only helped me regain my emotional strength but then she and her team helped us figure out how to make our finances go farther. We are now a family of 3 and thrilled with our SG baby!”
“I have had two successful pregnancies thanks to Dr. Moon! Not only is she good at what she does, but she has a great demeanor that put me at ease. She is great at thoroughly explaining things in an easy-to-understand way, and I always was very clear on why she made the recommendations she did. I would highly recommend her to anyone!”
“My husband and I were treated by Dr. Moon and RN Kate Phillips via Shady Grove Fertility’s Shared Risk Program. Dr. Moon’s even-keeled, strong and determined manner helped us to gain more emotional strength during a very trying time. We had poor egg quality and issues with receptivity during the frozen embryo transfers. However, Dr. Moon and Kate never gave up. We always knew our next steps and why we were doing them. “
“Dr. Moon was an absolute pleasure to work with on this fertility journey. She was always very courteous, explained everything to me in detail, and was always available for any questions or concerns.”
“I just want to thank Dr. Moon for all her care. She is an not only an incredible doctor but also an amazing human being. Life can have so many adversities that causes us so much pain and frustrations but I believe in God and his miraculous ways. Dr. Moon is an angel for all the families she helps to grow. Thank you Dr. Kimberly Moon! God bless you and your family always!”
“After meeting with Dr. Moon and her staff, we knew immediately that we were in good hands. We had left another infertility practice to go to SGF and it was the best decision we ever made. Dr. Moon and every single member at SGF gave us unlimited time, patience, understanding, and most importantly hope. After 3 difficult years on the path to start our family we needed hope more than anything. We have full confidence in recommending SGF to others!”
“Dr. Moon is truly incredible. We are so grateful to her for making us a family of three, and we would never have gotten there without her good counsel, sense of humor, incredible determination, and constant care, compassion, and insights.”
“I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Moon. She is patient, determined, compassionate, encouraging, fierce, funny, and incredibly smart. I am so happy that she was our doctor during this difficult time, and I am so grateful to her for making us a family of 3!”
“I had a great experience with Dr. Moon. She and her team were friendly, approachable, and on top of everything, making what is generally an uncomfortable process as un-intimidating and comfortable as possible.”
Q & A
Q: What are your hobbies and why do you enjoy them?
A: I love to sail. It is my Zen place. I love getting out on the water and being outside regardless of whether it’s sunny, rainy, windy, warm, or cold. I love the focus it takes to get the boat perfectly balanced and sailing as fast as possible. I love seeing all of the marine animal—manta rays, dolphins, osprey, turtles, and sharks—that I get to see out there. It all gives me a sense of peace and calm unlike anything else.
Q: What is something about you that would surprise most people?
A: I have shared this with many people, so perhaps it’s not a surprise, but I am a breast cancer survivor. I finished treatment in 2008 and I am doing great. I think the key to getting through something very tough like that is focusing on what you have and not on what you are missing. I do think that the experience of having cancer has changed my perspective as a physician, because I’ve been on both sides of the table.
Q: What about SGF makes you the most proud?
A: The amazing team of people I work with makes me the most proud. There are a lot of emotions, both up and down, involved in what we do, which makes our jobs both extremely rewarding but also difficult at times. I am constantly amazed with the hard work, dedication, and extra effort that our team puts in to do our absolute best. I am extremely proud of our success rates and the number of people we help achieve the families they desire.
Q: What’s on your bucket list?
A: I would like to travel to all the continents (I am currently at five). I would also like to sail around the world with my husband.
Q: How would you describe your personality?
A: I am honest to a fault, loyal, thoughtful, caring, and hardworking.
I am constantly amazed with the hard work, dedication, and extra effort that our team puts in.
