Patient Testimonial
Dr. Katz walked us through our infertility journey and made it possible for us to hold a beautiful baby girl in our arms.

The best part of the experience has been the friendliness and genuine care of Dr. Katz and his staff. You don’t get this everywhere.

With Dr. Katz and the Shady Grove Fertility staff, I felt a sense of hope that I had not previously felt such that no matter what our outcome, I knew we were in the right hands.

Dr. Katz is such a pleasure to work with. His bedside manner is one that many other physicians should model themselves to be like.

Dr. Katz is a great doctor who makes you feel like you’re his only patient.

Dr. Katz was simply what we needed after going years without answers.

Dr. Katz was so compassionate through the whole process. He was great at explaining everything step by step.

Dr Katz is always providing hope and encouragement. His funny personality can brighten your day.

Working with Dr. Katz is so reassuring and calming! I loved that he listened to our story and questions and “got” it.
