Patient Testimonial
Dr. Osheroff was very knowledgeable. He also had great bedside manner. I did all my fertility treatments with him and would again.

From the beginning Dr. Osheroff had high hopes for me, even when I didn’t. I am 26 weeks pregnant through IVF after 6 years of trying for my second baby.

Dr. Osheroff is extremely thorough and in the end saved me from more heartbreak. I am forever grateful to SGF for the best gift ever: my son!

Dr. Osheroff was kind, caring, and professional throughout our experience at Shady Grove. We would recommend him highly.

I really appreciate the way Dr. Osheroff provided feedback and his overall concern for my health as well as the health of my hopeful baby.

Dr. Osheroff is the best doctor I wish I went to sooner. I had my baby after 11 years of trying.

We were thrilled with our experience and outcome. Dr. Osheroff is fantastic! It was a tough road, but he helped us every bit of the way.

We have had the best experience with Dr. Osheroff. He has helped us with both of our babies!

I was really anxious about starting IVF and Dr. Osheroff took the time to answer all of my questions. Under his care, I got pregnant and now have a healthy baby.
