Patient Testimonial
Dr. Romanski filled us with so much hope when we needed it the most. Him and his team are absolutely amazing and hands on. I have never felt more cared for at a practice before. Highly recommend him for any fertility needs.

Dr. Barnard was wonderful to work with! I appreciated her care, patience, support, and calming demeanor. She was responsive, knowledgeable, and compassionate. While this process can be very intimidating and overwhelming, I felt better knowing that I had her on my side.

I began my own egg-freezing journey as an OB/GYN resident. Looking back 10 years later, now 38 years old, engaged, and ready to start my own family, I’m relieved to have frozen my eggs. At the same time, I feel obligated to give back and address the toll that surgical training has on women.

SGF in Alpharetta is fantastic. The office is beautiful and brand new. The office and clinical staff are friendly, they make you feel comfortable and they are very accommodating. I have never had to wait long for my appointment.

I have only wonderful things to say about Dr. Gay and his staff at the Alpharetta location. Knowledgeable, compassionate, and professional… I could not have asked for better care.

Dr. Swelstad has somehow perfected the difficult balance of being thoroughly educated and up to date in his field and patient and kind enough to make you feel important to him.

Q&A

I choose to work in reproductive medicine because I have always been interested in women’s health and after working labor and delivery for 10 years wanted to see the beginning of the process and help women trying to get pregnant.

My hobbies include cooking and travel.
