Patient Testimonial
My husband and I will forever be grateful to Dr. Sagoskin for his professionalism and medical knowledge. He will help you throughout the entire process until he gets you the best outcome.

We can’t begin to express how grateful we are to Dr. Sagoskin, our wonderful nurse and the rest of the doctors, nurses and staff and Shady Grove Fertility who have all been a part of our journey.

You can tell Dr. Sagoskin really cares about his patients and does everything in his power to help them achieve their goal of having a child.

Dr. Sagoskin is a true leader in his field. I could always count on him for encouragement, patience and understanding. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to be my physician!

Dr. Sagoskin was prepared with next steps on how to proceed, provided patience when explaining medical results and procedures, and provided empathy and emotional support on a personal level.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Sagoskin to any family or friends. He took great care in handling such a sensitive time as infertility. I am so glad we had him as our doctor!

Dr. Sagoskin is the reason I have my daughter. He was honest and realistic with us and we are forever grateful to him for giving us our family.

Dr. Sagoskin and his team were absolutely wonderful. I am truly grateful for all their help. We are now a family thanks to them.

We cannot thank Dr. Sagoskin and his team enough for helping us bring our beautiful daughter into the world. They always provided as much info as possible and were receptive throughout the whole process.

My husband and I struggled to conceive for over 2 years, due to male factor infertility. Dr. Sagoskin and the SGF Team took great care of us during our treatment and after.

I am inspired every day by the persistence and strength I observe in patients’ determination to proceed with such demanding processes in their quest to have a baby.

I love helping people and assisting people who are having difficulty in having a baby or at least having them feel we have done the best for them if we are not successful.


I am inspired every day by the persistence and strength I observe in patients’ determination to proceed with such demanding processes in their quest to have a baby.

As a founding partner, along with Michael Levy, I am most proud of the growth and success of the practice because this has allowed us to help so many people have a baby. Our philosophy and mission has always been to place the interests, needs, and well-being of our patients first above all else. This has allowed us to be successful.

I feel I need to empathize with their situation, try to feel what they are feeling, and listen to them without judgment but only with support, encouragement, and honesty.
