"The single most kind, caring, professional, smart, and incredible doctor I've ever worked with! I was so scared to begin this journey and then when I met Dr. Nair, I knew we were in good hands. So thankful to have her in my life and truly blessed to have a baby in my belly."

"Dr. Nair is an amazing doctor and her team is awesome! We’re so grateful that we had chosen Dr. Nair and Shady Grove Fertility, which eventually made us succeed being pregnant (with twins!!). Dr. Nair has great bedside manners. She is very warm and patient. She made things very easily to understand and will follow through. I also want to say that Shady Grove Fertility is a very organized and trustworthy clinic that I felt very comfortable going through the process of treatments. I strongly recommend Dr. Nair and SGF if you are considering having fertility treatment."

"I could not have felt more supported during my time at Shady Grove Fertility. I had previously worked with another fertility clinic and Shady Grove Fertility is leaps and bounds ahead of the game. From the webinars, fast email response time, easy appointment scheduling and wonderful and supportive staff - I couldn't have asked for a better experience."

"We love Dr. Nair! As a same-gender couple, we definitely appreciated how warm and caring Dr. Nair was with us. She seemed truly invested in helping to make our dreams of having a baby become a reality. She is knowledgeable and professional, and she incorporated my opinions and thoughts about my own body into the treatment plan. If we were ever unhappy with or confused about something, she helped to change it so that we could get better assistance and finally a beautiful baby!!"

"Dr. Nair is a dream! She helped my husband and I through 3 IUI cycles and one IVF cycle with a frozen transfer. We are now expecting our miracle. Her bedside manner, empathy and expert knowledge helped make our dreams come true. We are forever thankful to Dr. Nair and the SGF team."

"Dr. Nair was wonderful. She always took the time to explain things to us, we never felt that any question was out of bounds and was also very practical in her advice. I appreciated that when we decided to skip IUI and go straight to IVF, she concurred with our decision and helped us navigate the benefits of doing so. She is patient and kind and her bedside manner is soothing. I felt that she was invested in us, which is hard to find with many doctors today. I would recommend her highly."

"Dr. Nair is an amazing doctor and allowed us to start our long awaited family! She was there every step of the way! Her attention to detail and her medical knowledge was outstanding, and yet her ability to be compassionate are assets that are very difficult to find in doctors dealing with fertility issues today. There is nothing sterile about her demeanor and she truly cares about her patients! Dr. Nair is candid and honest, yet sensitive to your situation. It makes sense that she would receive and has earned every accolade acknowledging her expertise and success."

"Dr. Nair was extremely professional, knowledgeable, compassionate, and pragmatic when working with her during our fertility process. She was very helpful and thorough in going through our options and providing pros and cons associated with each step. She provided the information in an unbiased manner and also with a concern for costs as many treatments are not covered by insurance. The support staff at Shady Grove, including our nurse, Heather were also fantastic."

"Unexplained infertility is heartbreaking. Dr. Nair understands that the patients she sees have exhausted all other options. She takes the time to sit with you during an initial consultation and go over your complete medical history to offer the best course of treatment tailored to your particular circumstances. She is understanding, patient, emphatic and direct. We could not have asked for a better doctor to help guide us on this long and often frustrating journey. She's fantastic."
