Patient Testimonial
Dr. Tanrikut has excellent bedside manner. She performed a painless and effective procedure. Best healthcare provider I have had to-date.

Dr. Osheroff was very knowledgeable. He also had great bedside manner. I did all my fertility treatments with him and would again.

From the beginning Dr. Osheroff had high hopes for me, even when I didn’t. I am 26 weeks pregnant through IVF after 6 years of trying for my second baby.

Dr. Timmreck communicated information very well. She also made sure to offer opportunities for us to ask questions, of which she answered very well.

Dr. Timmreck provides the best quality of service. She shows great work ethics and takes the time to ensure you understand the process while explaining your options.

Dr. Esposito helped us fulfill our dreams of becoming parents. We will definitely be back when we’re ready for baby #2.

In less than a year we were finally pregnant and now have a beautiful daughter! The entire staff at SGF are amazing and we wish we would have went sooner.

Maryland Mandate

The Maryland Insurance Article Section 15-810, “Benefits for In Vitro Fertilization,” requires health and hospital insurance policies issued within the state that provide pregnancy benefits to also cover the cost of in vitro fertilization (IVF). There is a limit of three IVF attempts per live birth; not to exceed a maximum lifetime benefit of $100,000.
Effective January 1, 2021, Maryland’s infertility insurance law no longer has a marriage requirement, and the 2-year “waiting” period has been reduced to 1 year of unprotected sexual intercourse or three attempts of artificial insemination in the course of a year. Visit our State Insurance Laws page to learn more about the Maryland Mandate’s criteria and exemptions.
