To encourage prospective patients to seek help sooner, SGF provides free, educational resources and offers innovative financial solutions. 

ROCKVILLE, Md. – In a recent survey, 70% of SGF patients report they wish they would have reached out to a fertility specialist sooner. Among the top responses of why patients delayed seeking treatment are uncertainty or fear of the process and financial limitations. To combat these concerns, SGF provides free, educational resources and offers innovative financial solutions. 

“At SGF, we understand that taking the first step of making an appointment with a fertility specialist can be intimidating because people feel unsure of the process,” shares Jaimin S. Shah, M.D., SGF Houston fertility specialist. “When we can take away the uncertainty of the fertility treatment process through educating potential patients, we can better help those who need fertility care.”  

SGF is committed to informing and empowering patients to learn more about their fertility health. Through free, educational fertility webinars, SGF physicians provide a platform for information seekers to learn more about fertility treatments to remove uncertainty and have their questions answered live.  

Additionally, SGF’s website is well-known for being a valuable asset to its patients and the fertility community. SGF’s dynamic resource library allows users to search, filter, and view approximately 2,000 educational and support resources all in one place to aid readers along every stage of their family-building journeys.  

Patients also cited financial limitations as a reason they delayed seeking help. SGF is proud to offer innovative financial solutions, such as the Shared Risk 100% Refund Program, an in vitro fertilization (IVF) refund guarantee plan.
