Patient Testimonial
Dr. Morris was thoughtful and caring! She checked in throughout the entire egg retrieval process and responded to all questions. As a person of color, I deliberately sought her to be the lead of this very delicate and important step in my life. She was an outstanding provider!

We could not be more thankful to have had Dr. Katler’s support during our IVF journey. He was extremely thoughtful and attentive to our medical and emotional needs. We are eternally grateful to have found such a great doctor. Highly recommend!

Dr. Quaas is the kindest, most caring doctor. The team is truly the best and they really care about the patients. It’s a new practice, but I truly believe Dr. Quaas and the team understand the research and have great success rates. My husband and I are so grateful!

I highly recommend Dr. Quaas and SGF! He was attentive, thorough, and kind. I also like that I saw him for every ultrasound appointment and he was very involved in my care. They’re an incredible team and I appreciate what they have done for me.

Dr. Amrane is caring and extremely knowledgeable! I am pregnant with baby number 2 all thanks to her and her incredible team!

Dr. Amrane never gave up and always had a plan for the next round.

Q&A

After my son was born, yoga was one of the first exercises I got back into. It’s a great way for me to de-stress and have some “me” time. I love that there are so many different types of practices so it never gets boring. Plus it is so convenient! I can do yoga on my own, watch a video or take a class.

Although I am a fairly new provider to SGF, I have had many interactions with the staff over the years and I am so impressed by the team’s knowledge and dedication. The staff really makes every effort to provide state-of-the-art care and accommodate patients’ needs. I have found that all of the staff truly wants to help make the fertility journey go as smooth as possible.

I think the first step is to hear the patient out. Especially when dealing with fertility concerns there are so many complex emotions that can occur. Listening and validating the patient’s feelings is so important.

For six years my husband and I coordinated and coached a winter basketball program for children in grades 1-6.

I would say that I am calm and patient. I try to be a good listener and open-minded.

I enjoy spending time with my family. Especially when we can be outdoors! We like to swim, hike, run, and play sports.
