Patient Testimonial
I adore Dr. Tidey. I have seen many RE’s and he is by far the most gentle, precise and will do all he can to help you succeed.

Dr. Tidey is a compassionate, highly intelligent, highly skilled physician and I would recommend him to anyone having fertility issues.

We were trying for over 5 years to get pregnant, with Dr Tidey’s help we now have a 2 year old.


An Echols Scholar and distinguished graduate of the University of Virginia, Dr. Tidey earned his medical degree at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond and completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Maryland. He then went on to complete a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at George Washington University, while conducting research at the National Institutes of Health.

Dr. Tidey has held professional roles at the University of Texas where he authored numerous papers, abstracts, and book chapters. He has lectured extensively on topics related to infertility and reproductive endocrinology and received University of Texas’s Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Prior to joining SGF Richmond, Dr. Tidey served as Medical Director of the Virginia IVF and Andrology Center, which he co-founded in 1998. Since its inception, the Center has maintained its status as one of the country’s most successful IVF facilities. Dr. Tidey developed and directed the area’s first anonymous oocyte donation program, and he is responsible for the first frozen oocyte pregnancy in central Virginia.

Dr. Tidey specializes in the medical and surgical management of infertility and reproductive endocrinology including IVF, ICSI, PGD, robotic tubal reversal, and minimally invasive surgical treatment of fibroids, adhesions, endometriosis, and uterine abnormalities. He currently serves as a Clinical Professor in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Medical College of Virginia.

He is a member of the Society of Reproductive Endocrinologists, Society of Assisted Reproductive Technology, American Society for Reproductive Medicine, American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Richmond Academy of Medicine.

In his leisure time, Dr. Tidey enjoys golf, squash, snow skiing, cooking, reading, and traveling with his wife and two sons. Dr. Tidey sees SGF patients in the Richmond – Stony Point and Richmond – Henrico Doctors’ – Forest locations.

Eli Adashi–he was the Reproductive Endocrinologist during my residency training who opened my eyes to the emotional, intellectual, and technical complexities of helping women conceive. Dr. Adashi was the smartest person I had ever met. During that time, in vitro fertilization was a brand new tool that gave hope to thousands of women whose only option had been adoption. I have been fortunate to witness more successes than I ever dreamed possible.

My mother. Grace, patience, encouragement, and empathy were traits my mother displayed on a daily basis as a high school guidance counselor working with 500 students and their parents. She supported their dreams and was there for all the successes and failures, both big and small. My mother was calm, positive, and constantly reassuring in a manner that resonates deeply with me. I try to emulate her every day.

I love to cook, play golf, read, and solve crossword puzzles. I like anything challenging enough to require complete focus or an escape into the process. It may lead to the exhilaration of accomplishment or the motivation to do it better the next time. This is why I enjoy practicing medicine and performing surgery for these same reasons.

 I like that working on the SGF team feels like we are working toward a mission, not just for a business.

I would like to work in a professional kitchen for a week.

I listen. I analyze. I try to imagine how I would help a friend or a relative in the same situation. I make sure to involve our tremendous team at SGF.

Calm, patient, determined.
