"Dr. Nair came highly recommend as my husband and I had tried unsuccessfully conceiving. While we had a spontaneous pregnancy during a break from our timed medicated cycles, Dr. Nair and her staff were amazing throughout the whole process - informing us of every option, being patient with all of our questions, and seeing us through our first 8 weeks of pregnancy!"

"Dr. Nair is knowledgable and has a great bedside manner. She really listened to me and I never felt rushed working with her. I would recommend her to anyone!"

"The service at Shady Grove was outstanding. Dr. Nair was supportive, friendly and honest. All traits you want in a doctor who specializes in such a sensitive field. There was no question that I couldn't email my nurse about, the facilities were clean and relaxing and I never had to wait over my appointment time. Everyone was just fantastic. Thank you for making our dreams a reality."

"I could not have felt more supported during my time at Shady Grove. I had previously worked with another fertility clinic and Shady Grove 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 great doctor. She has great bedside manners, was very thorough in the exams she conducted before making a decision on how to proceed and explained all options with detail. She also answered all our questions and helped us make informed decisions as we moved along. I definitely recommend her."

"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."

"Our experience with Dr. Nair was outstanding. Our time with her was never rushed and she was very thorough and knowledgeable in explaining all of the options available. Dr. Nair is not only an incredible physician, but she also has an amazing bedside manner. She is kind, patient, empathetic, and so very understanding of her patients. I highly recommend Dr. Nair for anyone who is seeking fertility assistance."

"We had our ups and downs in our attempts to become pregnant. Dr. Nair was very caring throughout the difficult times. Happily we eventually succeeded in becoming pregnant. We now look forward to having a wonderful little girl to love! Many thanks to Dr. Nair and the staff for all the help you gave us."

"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."

"Having had a previous consult at another fertility clinic, we were very impressed how our questions were answered and how organized and expeditious the process has moved forward post our initial appointment. Dr Nair is wonderful!"

"Dr. Nair seems very knowledgeable and has a wonderful bedside manner. She genuinely seems to care."

"Dr. Nair always was warm and friendly, which is such a comfort in going through the process of fertility treatments. She educated us on all our options, was available to answer questions and helped us choose the best path forward. Her friendly and calming demeanor really helped us through a stressful and uncertain process."

"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."

"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."
