Patient Testimonial
I’ve worked in medicine for over 12 years and didn’t think I needed an office that cares about your mental health. I didn’t realize what I was missing until I came here. We’re just starting our journey with Dr. Davis and SGF, but every step has been positive and refreshing.

Dr. Davis sat with us and answered my many questions. I felt heard and he was also very kind. Very excited to start our journey here.

Dr. Hutchinson is amazing! Her knowledge, compassion, and positivity helped make a difficult process less stressful. She takes the time to thoroughly explain everything and answer questions, as well address any concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Hutchinson and her team.

Great experience! Dr. Marchetto felt like family in this process. The care and attention the entire staff gave was amazing.

Shady Grove Fertility as a whole is wonderful to work with! I worked directly with the Newark office, the staff is friendly, caring and extremely helpful through a difficult process. I highly recommend Shady Grove Fertility.

Our initial consult with Dr. Davis was almost 2 hours long. We asked him hard questions and after talking about our struggles, he was confident to try less invasive and costly routes while managing underlying medical issues. We immediately felt loved and cared for here.

Q&A

Having been a Physician Assistant for over a decade, I truly feel there is nothing more rewarding than helping families of all walks of life build their desired family. The connections made with patients during what is often a difficult and stressful journey are priceless. I am excited to continue my career in this field with Shady Grove Fertility.

I enjoy spending time with my family, outdoor activities and listening to true crime podcasts.

I am a Raleigh/Cary native and have an identical twin sister!
