Reviews

"Dr. Sagoskin is such an amazing doctor. He is knowledgeable, professional, caring and helpful. He was always there to answer our questions and help us through this long and trying process. We were always confident in his level of expertise, skill and dedication. We feel blessed to have had him as our doctor. You can tell doctor Sagoskin really cares about his patients and does everything in his power to help them achieve their goal of having a child."

"Class act and top notch clinician. Dr. Sagoskin is a true leader in his field. I've had an excellent experience with Dr. Sagoskin and his nurse Tina Linton through our families infertility struggles. I could always count on him and Tina for encouragement, patience and understanding. I wouldn't trust anyone else to be my physician!"

"Dr. Sagoskin lead us through our journey to become pregnant. His initial consultation was personal, detailed, and professional. He was always available for questions throughout the treatment and checked in with me personally when I experienced pain due to ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. My monitoring nurse answered all my questions within less than 12 hours - no matter how minute they were. I would highly recommend him and his staff for any infertility needs."

"I would definitely recommend Dr. Sagoskin to any family or friends. He took great care in handling such a sensitive time as infertility. We felt that he understood our specific case and, although there were some additional issues throughout the IVF process, he always provided a clear explanation and a recommendation that always worked out. I am so glad we had him as our doctor!"

"Dr. Sagoskin is the reason I have my daughter. He explained everything to my husband and I so clearly. We never felt rushed or pressured into anything. He was honest and realistic with us and we are forever grateful to him for giving us our family."

"I found Dr. Sagoskin to be very knowledgeable and personable. Fertility is a journey and he was prepared with next steps on how to proceed, provided patience when explaining medical results and procedures, and provided empathy and emotional support on a personal level. I cannot say enough about his support staff as well. I highly recommend Tina Linton as a nurse. She is quick, responsive, and supportive. She was even willing to meet after hours when I had a medication issue! Overall - excellent."

"Dr. Sagoskin and his team were absolutely wonderful. I am truly grateful for all their help. We are now a family thanks to them. Dr. Sagoskin is an expert in his field, but that is not the only thing that makes him great at his job. He is able to understand and relate to a patient on a personal level. Tina, his nurse coordinator, is so pleasant and understanding. She is also an expert in her field. She made every step of the treatment easy to understand and was always available."

"We cannot thank Dr. Sagoskin and his team enough for helping us bring our beautiful daughter into the world. They were great to work with, always provided as much info as possible and were receptive throughout the whole process."

"Words cannot describe how happy my family and I are with Dr. Sagoskin's care, professionalism, and bedside manner. My husband and I struggled to conceive for over 2 years, due to male factor infertility. Dr. Sagoskin and the SGF Team took great care of us during our treatment and after. We ended up getting pregnant with IVF/ ICSI and conceived on the first round. Last week we welcomed our healthy, 9lb baby girl into the world without any complications. I will forever be grateful to SGF and Dr. Sagoskin."

"My husband and I began our treatment with Dr. Sagoskin in October of 2014 and would continue through June of this year. We had tried for several years to get pregnant on our own with no luck before finally scheduling an initial consultation. Our first meeting was lengthy--Dr. Sagoskin was very thorough in reviewing our medical histories and explaining our options based on our particular situation. My husband and I appreciated his professionalism and positivity and immediately began down the path of IVF/FET. Though we faced several hurdles along the way, Dr. Sagoskin was accessible to answer any and all of our questions and concerns and remained confident, maintaining our hope for a positive outcome. The day after Christmas of this year, my husband and I were blessed to welcome healthy twin babies. We can't begin to express how grateful we are to Dr. Sagoskin, our wonderful nurse and the rest of the doctors, nurses and staff and Shady Grove who have all been a part of our journey."

"Our first visit to Shady Grove Fertility in 2012 was very reassuring, the staff was friendly and welcoming. We were seen by Dr. Sagoskin and his team, who made us feel we were at the right place. It's a day we won't forget. We began with diagnostic testing and were scheduled for an IUI. Three IUIs, one IVF fresh cycle and one FET - we were yet to get pregnant.
We never felt alone or hopeless, maybe it was the constant support and reassurance we got from the staff of Shady Grove, from the front desk to the phlebotomist to the sonographer, my nurse, or even the other doctors that I saw whenever Sagoskin wasn't available due to my scheduling conflict from work. We always knew we were in the right place. My last FET, done by Dr. Doyle, gave us our little prince on January 4th 2015. We are grateful to the staff of Shady Grove Fertility. We will forever have a place for you in our hearts and urge any couple going through the journey of infertility to make Shady Grove Fertility their choice. Remember- infertility, it's a journey not a destination."
"We wanted to sincerely thank you for the extremely patient and supportive care that you have provided to our family. Your constant reassurance and positive, uplifting demeanor certainly did not go unnoticed. It is great confidence that we would recommend any other couples in need to SGF as they service you and your team provide is without a doubt the most comprehensive and conscientious approach to medical care we have ever experienced. In addition to the ongoing support that you have provided to us, many other staff members have made our time at SGF so positive…We could never thank you enough!"

"Thank you so much for helping us make our family complete!"

"I am still in awe that we have been blessed with such an amazing and beautiful little girl!!! I finally feel human again. Infertility changes a person and I know it has made me stronger and my marriage stronger. I try to explain this to people but it's hard to understand unless you've been there…thanks again...and maybe we will see you again in a few years :)"

“It’s so hard for me to believe our time together is coming to an end – at least for now. I received all sorts of advice for enduring infertility but no one ever told me what it would be like to achieve success. I am excited, nervous and mostly sad to leaving Shady Grove Fertility. Your staff took such good care of me. Their warmth and skills always made me feel I was a priority. I’ve never had a medical experience like that. Thank you for building such an amazing practice! You held my hand throughout the process and it really helped me come to terms with what was happening. You felt like close friends, always rooting for me and always there when the chips were down….
…The work you do is simply amazing. Between the monitoring center, surgical wing, embryology lab and multiple offices, the facilities were incredible I was constantly impressed and have already recommended multiple friends.
Thank you so very much for your dedication. I know it’s an everyday thing for you all, but it meant the world to me. …With fondness and appreciation.”

“Our test is positive! It's just incredible. Thank You. It's just a miracle. Thank you very much and God bless You”

“I just wanted to let you know that I met the husband of one of your former patients during a visit to the Medical Access clinic in Germantown...former patients always have such nice things to say about their physician and the care they received from the entire Shady Grove team. But he said something that especially moved me – he said, “You know, Shady Grove didn’t just create a child and build our family – you healed our souls.”

"We are expecting…and are truly excited. Thank you so much for being a big support to us. We also want to thank Dr. Sagoskin. Yes, it was annoying to do all the tests….but we are happy that there was a means to the end (our baby girl). I am looking forward to coming back to Shady Grove!"

"Thank you so much for your great medical care, understanding and warm sensitivity. It’s so appreciated!"

"Thank you for everything. Words do not express how grateful we are to you for helping us build our family. Our miracle girls have brought so much joy to our lives and each minute with them is so precious (even at 2am when they are both crying)."

"Thank you Dr. Sagoskin and Elizabeth. We are so thrilled to welcome our new additions into this world. You will always have a special place in our hearts for making this all possible. "

"We just wanted to express our appreciation for all of your help over the last 11 months and to especially thank you for helping to make our dreams come true! We are absolutely thrilled. Thank you for all of your support and for pushing us to not give up - you were right! We look forward to being able to send you pictures in about 7.5 months."

"Although the answers were not always what we wanted to hear Dr. Sagoskin was professional and very compassionate about walking us through the process and keeping us all on the same page. His team is well trained and rally around the unit which is a testament to his coordination of talent."

"Dr. Sagoskin provided a truly personalized experience where I felt listened to and respected. The office staff went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. Both Sagoskin and his nurses were always available to answer questions and showed so much compassion. I would highly recommend him to anyone."

"Dr. Sagoskin has a calm demeanor which was very important to me. The consultation was very conversational, and he walked me through all the possible scenarios and gave detailed explanations as to why or why not. This gave me enough room to make necessary decisions and gave me a good understanding of what the process would look like for my specific needs."

"Amazing doctor and care. Dr. Sagoskin and his team hold a very special place in our hearts because he helped us become a family."
