Patient Testimonial
Dr. Mitchell is a gem for Shady Grove Fertility. She is very thorough in explaining the complex world of fertility, which I love as I can better make informed decisions. The beautiful thing is, she’s an advocate with you and for me, that makes all the difference in this journey.

I loved both the staff (pleasant and thoughtful) and Dr. Davis who is informative, gentle, and understanding. If you’re considering treatment I wouldn’t hesitate to come here.

Dr. Alexis Gadson is a treasure and very knowledgeable. She really put my husband and my mind at ease and this was just our first appointment with her. I’m truly thankful for her already!

I would highly, highly recommend Dr. O’Hern! Throughout my struggles with infertility, she has been kind, supportive, thoughtful, and determined to help me achieve a pregnancy. The staff at SGF, both in Clear Lake and the Medical Center, are amazing to work with!

Working with Dr. Kallen and his entire team was an absolute pleasure. They took time in designing a medical plan specific to our situation. Dr. Kallen never gave up on us and constantly reassured us at every step of the way to a successful pregnancy! We are very grateful for Dr. Kallen the SGF team!

Dr. Healy is so kind and selfless she is one of the kindest people that I’ve ever met. I definitely recommend her for any fertility treatments that people may need. We would never choose anyone else to handle our care. If you were looking for a fertility doctor, she is, hands-down, the best.

Q&A

I have had a long-standing interest in reproductive medicine. In fact, I entered medical school already certain that I wanted to specialize in Obstetrics & Gynecology. What drew me to the field of Obstetrics & Gynecology was the ability to help empower patients and uplift communities through their reproductive health. I was inspired by the close relationships reproductive health providers and their patients build, and I have fostered this special connection with my patients since first becoming a physician. I became interested in fertility when I realized that the field involves not only scientific/medical aspects that excite me, but also unique patient relationships, research, and advocacy.

Traveling has always been important to me and my family. I love cooking, especially adapting recipes to be vegetarian/vegan (my husband is vegan, but I love cheese too much to commit). Spending time outdoors, whether hiking, jogging, biking, or long walks through the city, always invigorates me. I can’t help but sing along to musical theater (my favorites include Rent, Mamma Mia, and Wicked).

While in most aspects of my life I do not take risks, I do tend to be an adventure seeker while traveling; I’ve hang glided off a mountain in Wyoming, swam with sharks in the Galapagos, rode up a mountain on the back of a stranger’s motorbike in Colombia, hiked an active volcano in Nicaragua, and more. While I often feel nervous initially, it’s always worth it!
