Patient Testimonial
Dr. Libby was just amazing. We had a long journey and she was right there with us in the trenches. She was our third fertility doctor. She thought outside the box, was willing to try new things, was open to our questions, and used her team to help us.

I went through IVF with Dr. Humm. I felt heard, comforted, and comfortable the whole way. The support staff were beyond fantastic and turned what would have been a scary experience, into something that my husband and I never felt like we were navigating alone.

Dr. Libby listened to our every concern and communicated with us when we needed it, never making us feel pushed to the side or that she was to busy to be there for us.

From the first consultation until our final appointment Dr. Doyle was empathetic, compassionate, and very easy to talk to. He reviewed my diagnosis and treatments each step of the way and changed our protocols accordingly to result in a positive and viable pregnancy.

I had an ultrasound and an HSG done at the Norfolk office. Every staff member was amazing – so gentle, comforting and supportive. I’m very grateful for that.

Dr. Banks is attentive, kind, and professional. She answered all of our questions.

Q&A

I became a doctor to help and advocate for underserved populations. I’ve always enjoyed science and reading about the human body and all its complexities. Seeing women from a free clinic struggle with everything from STIs to infertility with few resources but with incredible strength and grace was humbling and the reason I became a doctor.

This field is technically complex, methodical, and continuously evolving which piqued my interest. Disparities in reproductive health and pregnancy outcomes ultimately cemented my decision to become a reproductive endocrinologist. Being able to help patients meet their family building goals no matter their background is important to me. 

SGF is unique in that its providers are committed to patient care, committed to conducting research that continues to explore ways to best treat individuals and couples struggling with infertility, and committed to developing future clinicians in this field. This makes me proud of SGF and proud to be a clinician! 

I am inspired by my patients every day. Our patients demonstrate resilience, transparency, trust, and patience every time they walk into my office. Every patient I’ve encountered has a story or perspective that is unique, yet they all are vulnerable. This unwavering vulnerability and trust in the face of uncertainty and sometimes immense challenge is truly inspirational. 

I think the best way to help patients is to listen to their needs. Everyone has a different reason for presenting for care and it’s my job as their provider to bridge their concerns with my clinical acumen. Shared decision making is ideal for me when treating all patients. 

Energetic, compassionate, and thoughtful. Whether in my personal or professional life, I value and respect the relationships I can cultivate with others.

I love spending time with my family and friends. I’ve moved often and have met so many incredible people along the way. However, now that my family has settled down in the DC Metro area, I am excited to explore new activities with them including museums, brunches, football (go Ravens), local parks, and wine tastings.
