Patient Testimonial
My experience at SGF was exceptional from start to finish. I was constantly impressed with the attention, kindness, and personal approach to care I received from Dr. Khan.

Dr. Khan is very caring; yet, he is very realistic and honest.

Thanks to Dr. Khan and the wonderful nurses we now have the most amazing little boy whom is topping all the growth charts!

Dr. Khan is one of the most caring doctors I know. He is attentive and super knowledgeable when it comes to all things fertility related.

Dr. Khan reassured me that I WOULD get pregnant and his support and positivity meant the world to me in those discouraging moments.

Dr. Khan had to deliver us some very hard news to hear about my fertility. However, it was turned into a wonderful success story.

Q&A

My interest in infertility started in medical school. I really loved embryology and the study of human development. It wasn’t until later, when my wife and I went through 3 years of infertility ourselves, that I decided to become a fertility specialist. I can really empathize with the stress that people are going through, both emotionally and financially, since my wife and I were once in that situation.

I love to run. I find it incredibly relaxing and always feel great afterwards. I run the Tinina Q. Cade Foundation Race for the Family, which our practice sponsors just about every year, and have done half marathons. In college at Emory University, I used to run track and field and cross country. Over the past few years, I also developed a love of cycling. I have done several 100 mile (century) rides and a few criterium races. Our practice sponsors the Air Force Association ride each year in Arlington, and I enjoy doing that ride with my daughters.

I am really proud of how many couples we have helped at Shady Grove Fertility. More than 40,000 babies and counting: That is such a staggering number of babies born to any one practice and I am really proud to be a part of the SGF team.

Recently I had a couple that has had a horrible reproductive history. They have been patients of mine for a long time and they had difficulty getting pregnant, and then they had difficulty keeping the pregnancy with multiple losses. They naturally were mentally exhausted and fatigued from the multiple disappointments along the way. We finally were successful and they are about to deliver in a few months. The couple was inspirational in terms of their perseverance because many people would have given up long ago, but they stayed as optimistic as they could. The entire office is holding our breaths until we hopefully hear some really good news from the couple!

I can personally understand the struggles a couple goes through in the infertility process. It is extremely stressful and becomes a huge focus for the couple and their families. I try to provide as much reassurance as possible to the couple and to hang in there. At the same time, I don’t want to be unrealistic in terms of expectations so sometimes it can be quite a balancing act. The good news is that most couples are usually successful using some method, and I try to remind them of that.
