Patient Testimonial
Amazing care! Dr. Quaas and his team are so proficient, professional, caring and understanding.

Shady Grove Fertility is the best in the country and the Carolinas. I was fortunate enough to find my way into SGF after poor care and treatment at another clinic. I needed a place where I felt seen, heard, and cared for. Dr. Mersereau, Wendy, and Ellie are the dream team!

If I could give this place more than 5 stars I would!! We love SGF Houston – Beaumont. Dr. Crochet has been nothing but the most wonderful doctor!

I absolutely love the Beaumont SGF location. Everyone in that office is passionate about helping you start your family. They have become like a family to my husband and I, and we could not be more satisfied with our care from them.

Dr. Schnell and her staff are absolutely amazing, curious and friendly. The nurses that we worked with answered all of our questions and were excited to have helped us get pregnant. I’d highly recommend them to anyone.

Dr. Davis was great! He has such a calm demeanor and is super informative. He was friendly and outgoing at all of my appointments and answered all my questions. I felt very confident and safe in his care.

Q&A

I love women’s health and focused on that area in my graduate program. I chose to work in reproductive medicine because of the opportunity to be a part of a patient’s family-building journey. I take joy in so many aspects of my job, especially being able to provide education and support to fertility patients in different phases of treatment. I feel I have a unique role to be present with them as they go through difficult circumstances as well as the chance to celebrate their successful moments. After working so many years in this field, I have also gotten to see such an evolution in all that we can offer patients for improved outcomes. It has certainly been a privilege to experience so many growing families and help encourage them along their journey. 

I enjoy staying active and spending time with family and friends. Tennis and pickleball have been great outdoor activities that have kept me busy on the weekends. I also love music and attending local concerts–Country music and 80’s cover bands are some of my favorites! Most of all I really appreciate time with my family whether it is cheering on my daughters’ sports teams, playing board games, or traveling to different parts of the country to build new memories together. 

I appreciate true crime mysteries and watching the next episode of a “Whodunnit?” show. I love getting to know the characters and plot and deciphering the evidence until I have finally guessed the villain!
