Patient Testimonial
The whole SGF set-up is excellent. I was worried that such a big clinic might make me feel like just a number, but that wasn’t the case at all.

If you want professional, research-based fertility care, this is THE place to go.

The Shady Grove Fertility office in Towson handled every appointment with the most respect, sincerity, and kindness I have ever experienced.

Taking the first step to this journey is not easy, but being in the hands of Dr. Morris and the entire Shady Grove Harbor East team was an absolute pleasure!

The staff at SGF in Baltimore – Harbor East is wonderful. They’re understanding, punctual, accommodating, and patient.

I loved our experience with Dr. Morris and the team at SGF when my wife and I were recently trying to conceive. She is quick to respond to any inquires or concerns and helped us to determine the best plan to fit our needs.

Q&A

What I love about my job at SGF is that I get to focus on endocrinology and hormones, while also educating and empowering patients about how their bodies function, teaching what we’re looking for when we’re doing tests, why we’re using certain medications, and what’s happening in their bodies. In addition to this, there is a huge psychological component to our work. By the time people walk into our office, they’ve likely already been on an emotional roller coaster, no matter how long their fertility experience has been. It’s important to me to support our patients and their partners in the best way I can as they make their way through their journey with us, and that’s a different approach for each person. 

I love to garden and have quite a few plants in my office at work. I like to sew and knit, but over the years, these hobbies have turned into more of a textile collection and less of an active hobby. I need to develop a closet cleaning hobby! 
 

I happen to have two incredible moms, so I have experienced firsthand that there are many ways that people create families.
