Q & A

Q: Why did you become a doctor/reproductive endocrinologist?


I have always liked science, and I had wanted to become a doctor ever since my first experiences as a candy striper and a home health aide. I went into obstetrics and gynecology because I was fascinated by the incredible physical and emotional journey women endure to have a family. I became a reproductive endocrinologist because I wanted to specifically focus on helping those couples whose journey was especially difficult.

Q: Who inspires you?


As a doctor, I am motivated by my patients and colleagues to never stop learning, listening, and caring. As a professional, I respect Sheryl Sandberg and Tina Fey for their leadership, tenacity, and wit. Having a family has enriched my life in unimaginable ways, and has served as a greater inspiration for me to help my patients share in the joy of a family of their own.

Q: What are your hobbies and why do you enjoy them?


After a stressful day, there’s nothing I love more than to go out for a good run with some awesome music. I love to go skiing for a great family getaway, to be surrounded by nature, and for the sheer exhilaration of it too. While I used to be an avid rower and tennis player, admittedly those hobbies have taken a backseat recently. I love the adventure of travel and the ability to experience different cultures firsthand, which is one of the reasons I enjoy living in such a diverse city as Washington.

Q: What about SGF makes you the most proud?


I am really excited and humbled to become a member of the Shady Grove Fertility team. There is a palpable sense of camaraderie, passion, and integrity. As a former rower, I would say that I’m proud to be in the boat that is leading our field, where everyone is pulling in the same direction to ultimately do what is right for the patient.

Q: Describe a time when you were inspired by a patient.


As a doctor, there are the patients you help and they are thankful because you helped them, and that's naturally very rewarding. But, there are also lots of patients who despite your best efforts you haven’t helped, and yet somehow they stick with you and you walk that road together. The longer I am a doctor, the more I appreciate that my greatest inspiration from patients comes from these powerful connections that arise from the toughest of times

Q: What is your approach to helping patients who are struggling?


Infertility is one of the most stressful experiences a patient or a couple can experience, said to be on par with cancer and death. A couple’s marriage, sexual experiences, emotional reserves, and sense of personhood are strained, exacerbated by hormones and costly treatments. Despite these obstacles, I believe there is much hope. I am here to guide my patients with compassion through this difficult process, provide them with accurate information, and enable them to have their best chance for success.

Q: How would you describe your personality?


I would say that I am a passionate and energetic extrovert who approaches challenges with the meticulous tenacity of your textbook Type A. My friends and patients have described me as compassionate, disarming, and down-to-earth.

The longer I am a doctor, the more I appreciate that my greatest inspiration from patients comes from these powerful connections that arise from the toughest of times.


"I saw Dr. Reh for 6 months. Throughout that time, she was compassionate, understanding, and supportive. Her entire team becomes incredibly invested in your success. We cannot thank her enough for making our dream of becoming parents a reality."

"We had an excellent experience with Dr. Reh and the whole team at Shady Grove! Dr. Reh was very easy to talk to, thorough, and positive. We are so thankful we were under her care, and that we are now pregnant with our IVF baby!"

"I was a special case, having had HELLP Syndrome with my first pregnancy so Dr. Reh made sure we had all of our ducks in a row before beginning treatment. Once we began, every step was explained thoroughly and the time-consuming process was made easier by the office's efficiency, their hours, and their availability to answer questions at almost any time. I could not have asked for a better experience."

"We had an excellent experience with Dr. Reh and the whole team at shady grove! They are compassionate and caring and made a very emotional experience as easy as possible for us! I felt like they truly cared, when they took time to call and email me to wish me luck on my transfer day. Communication was always very easy with Dr. Reh and her nursing staff! Thank you Dr. Reh for helping us expand our family!"

"I was with Dr. Reh through two losses and two successful pregnancies. She's an amazing doctor, warm, knowledgeable and patient. I can't recommend her enough!"

"Dr. Reh is professional, empathetic and patient. She is a wealth of knowledge and is up to date on all of the latest research. I felt safe in her hands and trusted her completely with the entire process."

"Dr. Reh is excellent- she takes the time to understand your health history completely to find the best course of action going forward. She is patient with questions and is a master in her field."

"I made the decision to go to Shady Grove in January 2018 after a miscarriage the previous year and had trouble getting pregnant since. Plus, I have PCOS. Dr. Reh knew exactly what tests to run and what the path forward would look like. Shady Grove kept me informed of my financial responsibilities and gave me the choice to opt out of certain tests. They have several locations so they can be flexible with their times. The staff is absolutely wonderful! After a little over a month, I got pregnant! As happy as I was to be pregnant, I was sad to leave their office. I would recommend Dr. Reh and her staff to anyone."

"Dr. Reh really helped me through the difficult time of infertility with empathy, knowledge and care. She made herself available to my husband and I to answer all our questions. Her knowledge and confidence gave me optimism that pregnancy would happen for me and it did! Dr. Reh took great care of me as a patient and always made me feel comfortable during a physically (and emotionally) uncomfortable time."

"We loved our experience with Dr. Reh. We had complete faith in her as she is so knowledgeable. Dr. Reh is also a warm, empathetic person with strong communication skills. We never had any questions left unanswered and felt we were well-informed throughout the process. It was also nice to be provided with data/statistics on outcomes so that we could have realistic expectations. It's a stressful process, and so we were very fortunate to be able to work with such a nice and personable doctor. The staff were also always really nice and accommodating."

"Dr. Reh and her staff expertly guided us through the entire process of conceiving using an egg donor. This is a difficult science, without precise reasons for failures at times which is hard to deal with, but Dr. Reh was factual and encouraging throughout the process. We had 3 early stage miscarriages but now I'm 10 weeks pregnant and even saw the heartbeat of the baby last week. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr Reh and her team in Arlington."

"It's been a long road but thanks to Dr Reh I am now 10 weeks pregnant. She gave us thorough advice throughout the process and ensured we were fully informed to help make the decisions at every step. I'd certainly recommend Dr Reh and her team."

"I have tried many procedures, including IVF with no avail at different Dr.'s offices. I felt hopefully after I had conceived at a different Dr.'s office and suffered a miscarriage. After that I went on a hiatus for 7 months and then finally decided maybe I should try Dr. Andrea Reh at Shady Grove because of all the positive feedback I heard from my Husband and over the Radio. When she spoke to my Husband and I she had nothing but confidence in her statistics and knowledge about what can be done. She said since I started IVF already at a different location that I should just go with it. I told her that I wanted to go back to an archaic way of a simpler method of an IUI. With her faith and guidance I was able to conceive my "Rainbow Baby" just by her listening to what I asked her for and her giving me a chance. There are not enough words to thank her and the Shady Grove team for helping me conceive the child I have been wanting for over 2 and a half years. It has been a very difficult and trying year ever since my loss but this child will never make me feel hopeless. There is such a thing as miracles that happen, it's the faith and trust from your Dr. that makes things more viable to happen. Thank you Dr. Andrea Reh!"

"Dr. Andrea E. Reh has a lot of insight and input on how to help couples with fertility issues. Not only has she helped me in becoming pregnant, but she also familiarized us as a couple with valuable fertility information. My Husband and I could not be any happier. Thank you so much Dr. Andrea E. Reh!"

"We so appreciated every interaction we had with Dr. Reh and her team at Shady Grove. Dr. Reh is practical, direct, concrete, and kind. As someone trying to get pregnant for the first time in my 40s, it was important that we were very clear on our options, fertility chances and how to maximize them, and what steps to take when, without delays. We felt that the initial screenings were really thorough and Dr. Reh provided clear information, options, and pathways for us to try."

"When my husband and I were having difficulty conceiving, my OB recommended Shady Grove Fertility. I was able to easily make an appointment and was put immediately at ease after meeting with Dr. Reh. She was incredibly professional, kind, and thoughtful with her answers and it truly felt like she and the entire Shady Grove staff were on our team throughout our time with Shady Grove. The entire office is a well-oiled machine and you have never met such kind and considerate staff."

"I would highly recommend scheduling an appointment with Dr. Reh. She was consistently kind, reassuring and extremely knowledgeable. Each person we met at Shady Grove Fertility was rooting for us the entire time and we were so lucky to have them on our side. Dr. Reh's team took time to answer tons of questions and Dr. Reh also followed up with me and my husband personally. We are very thankful for everyone at Shady Grove Fertility."

"My husband and I are so thankful for the care Dr. Reh and the entire team at Shady Grove Fertility have given us. We were treated with kindness and compassion by every staff member that we met with. Dr. Reh and her team communicate with you every step of the way and are in constant contact---it is amazing!"

"Dr. Reh was lovely to work with. From our very first visit she was punctual, reassuring, and beyond helpful in answering all of our questions. Her nurse Olga was also lovely and must have responded to 50+ random email questions from me over the course of a few weeks. All of the staff at Shady Grove Arlington were great and I was particularly satisfied with the early morning appointments and ease of scheduling."

"Dr. Reh and her staff were great! Everyone in the office was kind and considerate. Dr. Reh was thoughtful in her explanations and put both husband and myself at ease. I wouldn't hesitate to see them again, and wish I had found them sooner."

"I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Reh at Shady Grove. She was very professional and straightforward about my situation and the plan we used to help me conceive. The staff was equally wonderful and supportive every step of the way. They even took the time to help me get comfortable with the IUI procedure. It took a few tries, but I am currently 11 weeks pregnant."

"I got your message yesterday and wanted to thank you so much for taking the time to call me. I was truly touched that you did. I also appreciated knowing you performed the retrieval on my donor. I have been impressed with my care at Shady Grove Fertility and wanted to pass that information along to you and your team. You have called me unprompted on a couple occasions just to check in and that really means a lot to me. For a clinic as large as Shady Grove Fertility, I am truly impressed with the attention you give your patients."

"We had a wonderful experience with Dr. Reh, and were fortunate enough to have a successful pregnancy on our first attempt at IUI. Dr. Reh was wonderful with explaining the process to us and helping us along the way. Her team of nurses and staff at Shady Grove Fertility were so sweet and caring, the entire experience was extremely positive for us, and we hope to come back to them again in the future."

"After four years of infertility struggle, my husband and I felt like Dr. Reh really listened to us and our concerns. She was compassionate and thorough and made sure we understood every part of the process. We are now 13 weeks pregnant and so thankful to Dr. Reh and her team for their part in this."

"Dr. Reh was extremely helpful throughout the process. She listened to our questions and answered thoughtfully and we never felt rushed or like our concerns were not being addressed. SGF is also wonderful about providing information and a detailed schedule to follow - something that we did not experience with our first child when doing IVF elsewhere. The experience was great from start to finish and we are looking forward to welcoming our baby this winter!"
