Patient Testimonial
10 out of 10 recommend! From the first day we stepped foot in Dr. Shah’s office we could feel the amount of love and care him and his team give to their patients. Our fertility journey wasn’t easy but this clinic went above and beyond to make sure it was successful.

I switched to SGF because of our first visit with Dr. Shah. He has great bedside manner, clear communication, manages expectations, and has a great staff. He is very proactive with your healthcare and makes you feel cared for. 

Dr. Shah embodies the epitome of excellence in IVF treatment. From the moment you step into their clinic, you’re greeted with warmth and empathy, setting the tone for the transformative journey ahead.

During the vulnerable and challenging experience of going through infertility treatment, Dr. O’Hern was caring, honest, and supportive. She listened to our concerns and questions with care. She was approachable while speaking to the research in backing her treatment plan.

Dr. O’Hern, her nurses, and the entire staff at Shady Grove Fertility are the best. Dr. O’Hern provides a wonderful balance of realistic statistical medical advice and compassion in her approach to treatment. She is so supportive and helped me navigate the most important journey of my life so far.

The entire staff at SGF were amazing, but Dr. B was a vital part of why I would choose this clinic again. She was extremely personable, calling with any and all updates & even making sure to be there when we had a scare very early on in my pregnancy.

Q&A

I’ve been in the women’s health field my entire nursing career, a large part of that spent in labor and delivery at Inova Fairfax Hospital. Being able to help women in their fertility journey as a Nurse Practitioner after years helping women deliver babies is special to me. It’s like I’ve come full circle.

I was born and raised in Boston, MA, so I’m a Boston sports fan by default! However, I’ve been residing in Northern Virginia for 15+ years with my husband and our three young kids. I love to cook, bake, read, craft, and take the kids hiking across all the National Parks.
