SGF is now open in Roanoke, Virginia

Individuals and couples can now schedule new patient appointments with established Roanoke, Virginia, physician Emily Evans-Hoeker, M.D., at SGF’s newest location.  

US Fertility, the nation’s largest partnership of physician-owned and physician-led top-tier fertility practices, proudly announces one of its partners, Shady Grove Fertility (SGF), is now scheduling new patient appointments with Emily Evans-Hoeker, M.D., at SGF’s new Roanoke, Virginia, location, formerly operating as Carilion Clinic Reproductive Medicine and Fertility (CCRMF).   

“I am proud to be joining a practice that provides dedicated, compassionate fertility care,” shares Dr. Evans-Hoeker. “Everyone on the SGF team gets to know our patients — not just as it relates to fertility treatments, but who they are outside of their fertility journey — which really allows us to understand the patient as a person and enables us to better serve our patients.”  

SGF Roanoke offers patients living and working in western Virginia access to advanced fertility treatment. The office is located at 1231 S. Jefferson Street and is open five days a week. Dr. Evans-Hoeker, along with her highly trained medical staff, provides personal and compassionate fertility care in a warm and welcoming environment.  

SGF’s Roanoke, Virginia, location offers comprehensive fertility services including:  

  • virtual and in-person new patient consults, 
  • fertility and ovarian reserve testing and diagnosis, 
  • semen analysis, 
  • low-tech fertility options, 
  • in vitro fertilization (IVF), 
  • donor egg, sperm, and embryo, 
  • genetic screening and testing, 
  • gestational carrier, 
  • egg freezing, 
  • fertility preservation for patients with cancer, 
  • LGBTQ+ family building, 
  • financial counseling, 
  • psychological support, and more. 

Roanoke patients can expect the same great care they have come to know and trust with Dr. Evans-Hoeker but gain the additional benefits of innovative financial programs to help make infertility more affordable, including the Shared Risk 100% Refund Program. This exclusive program provides patients with the opportunity to pay a fixed amount for up to six fresh IVF or donor egg cycles and any subsequent frozen embryo transfers (FETs). Of the total Shared Risk 100% Refund Program participants, 82 percent take home a baby, and the rest receive a full refund to use for other family-building options.

Dr. Evans-Hoeker is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) as well as reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI).
