Patient Testimonial
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.

Dr. Morris is an exceptional physician. The fertility process can be emotional and overwhelming, but her team at SGF will guide you through each step.

Dr. Morris is absolutely wonderful. She is thorough, patient, empathetic and compassionate. She is a knowledgeable practitioner who is willing to review all information in order to make the best decision on how to move forward in your care.

I’ve always wanted to work in OB/GYN even before becoming a PA. I started my career working at a private OB/GYN practice and managed patients that were either struggling to conceive or had undergone fertility treatment in the past. I found reproductive endocrinology to be incredibly fascinating, and I was fortunate enough to be able to join Shady Grove Fertility and learn from the best. Being able to help patients through such a difficult and vulnerable journey is immensely rewarding.

I love spending time with my family. I also enjoy reading, cooking, traveling.

I was a Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange student with the American Field Service. I lived in Schönberg, Germany with my host family for one year and graduated from Realschule before returning to the states for college.
