Patient Testimonial
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.

Dr. Mitchell and her team are dedicated to their patients in their journey to getting pregnant. She is so kind and always makes sure you are comfortable and understand what’s going on and next steps. She communicates so well with her team and patients and I cannot be more happy with my experience.

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.

Q&A

For as long as I can remember, I have been passionate about the field of medicine and how science can be used to improve patients’ lives. I see no greater privilege than being able to help patients as they navigate their journey to building a family, which is why I chose to become an REI physician.

After extensive reproductive endocrinology and infertility training during my residency, I knew I wanted to become a reproductive healthcare provider. No two patients presenting for fertility care are the same. Working alongside patients, developing individualized treatment plans and helping patients reach their specific fertility goals, is an incredibly fulfilling experience.

Shady Grove Fertility is, first and foremost, focused on providing the best care to the patient. As a practice, SGF prioritizes research and innovation, so that patients continue to receive the most up to date, evidence-based care.

I had the opportunity to take care of a patient with multiple unexplained recurrent pregnancy losses. Her resilience and strength to continue treatment, despite the uncertainty of the future, was incredibly inspiring to me.

I want patients to always know they are not alone during their fertility journey. Their entire care team at SGF supports them, will advocate for them, and can provide many additional resources as needed. 

My grandmother — she was a mother to six and one of the only female lawyers at her firm in the 1950s. She overcame a lot of adversity and did not take “no” for an answer! 

Most of the time, energetic and upbeat!

I love being outside in any capacity! Hiking, running, playing tennis.
