Patient Testimonial
I started seeing Dr. McKeeby in 2019, and he has been nothing short of amazing! He makes you laugh in a time that can be so incredibly frustrating, but is also extremely professional.

Dr. McKeeby is a consciences, considerate, and an incredibly knowledgeable provider. We feel fortunate to have landed in his good care.

We were always told my husband was unable to father a child. Dr. McKeeby took impossible odds and made being parents our reality! Our 4% chance is here and he is so worth it.

Before meeting Dr. Mckeeby we went through another route which left us hopeless. To my surprise his staff made my time there a breeze.

We loved how Dr. McKeeby gave us hope that we were going to make a baby.

Dr. McKeeby has been awesome! He explained everything and made me feel confident with a peace of mind.

Five months ago I had my baby boy! I would go through all the pain, worry and heartache again knowing that this was the light at the end of the tunnel.

SGF is a wonderful place for fertility treatment. Dr. McKeeby works seamlessly with the office and the harmonious effort shows at each visit.

I walked away from my appointment with Dr. McKeeby feeling like he cared and would help us achieve our dream of having a family.

We worked with Dr. McKeeby twice and had so much faith and trust in him. I was proud to be his patient.

Q&A

I am inspired by patients every day. Their strength in the face of adversity, and willingness to sacrifice time, emotional state, and resources makes me want to do my very best every time.

My main hobby is travel. I especially enjoy travel with my wife and sons. It is a pure joy to experience the discovery of new places and cultures with them.

I am most proud of the absolute commitment to quality by each and every staff member. The culture of the practice is that each member of the team knows they are integral to patient success and experience.

I was in the Navy on 9/11. A patient’s husband died in the Pentagon that day. A few months later, she came to the office to thank our team for helping them build their family together and bringing such amazing joy to her husband before he died. She then dedicated herself to creating a charity in her husband’s honor to help other military families struggling with infertility at Walter Reed by funding travel expenses. Her selflessness continues to inspire me today.
