I was turned down by 5 places I called because I was 50 years old...he explained the whole procedure, and advise us on what we needed it to do. It was very challenging for me since I already passed menopause and had couple of body issues here and there, Doctor Sharara prepared my body for IVF. My first IVF failed, but neither he nor we gave up, so we went for round two! Iam now 9 weeks pregnant and we are sooooo excited and so happy that we made this decision. I was so glad to find Doctor Sharara, as he never turned down any questions or concerns that we ever had.
The nurses [at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine] were extremely compassionate and were concerned about my feelings all the time...I highly recommend this practice to anyone just starting out, who has any questions about fertility, having a baby or looking to find out about IVF...the staff was amazing...we love all of the ladies in the office they were super supportive even while gone on vacation they took phone calls and responded to text from us, which made our life’s easier, I was impress by the professionalism and the dedication of this practice. I never felt alone while any of the procedures and I just trusted Doctor Sharara doing whatever he asked me to do. Doctor Sharara is an amazing doctor who has lot of experience and

Amazing! My fiancé and I have been together for the last 8 years and I have 3 grown children but he is never been a father, so we discussed having a baby together. At first I was hesitant but at the same time I wanted him to experience being a father and when things are meant to be, they are meant to be! I was turned down by 5 places I called because I was 50 years old. Last place was VCRM, called made an appointment and met with Doctor Sharara, best decision ever! I was very please as he explained the whole procedure, and advise us on what we needed it to do. It was very challenging for me since I already passed menopause and had couple of body issues here and there, Doctor Sharara prepared my body for IVF.

Doctor Sharara is an amazing doctor who has lot of experience and knows what he is doing I will recommend him to anyone! I was just very sad our time with VCRM was over since I am pregnant now, and need to start my prenatal care with my OBGYN, but I will definitely return to introduce my little bundle of joy to Doctor Sharara once my baby is born.

I felt the utmost care and concern from the first time I met Dr. Sharara. He shared his plan with me, and we started our journey together...is brilliant, experienced, warm, kind, caring and gave me so much hope when I wasn't feeling so strong. I have never been treated better or have been in better hands from any doctor in my entire life... I found out I had hypothyroidism (which a began taking a prescription for) and a vitamin D deficiency. I also found out from the hysteroscopy that I had cysts along my uterine wall (that could have been caused from all the hormones I had taken for IUIs prior to finding Dr. Sharara). With those there, I wasn't getting pregnant. I underwent surgery soon after. All of this was done between the end of June 2018-July 2018 (quick!). My husband also went through a screening that not only analyzed the amount of sperm he produced, but also the functionality. This CAP test gave him a CAP score. We then had a percentage of us conceiving naturally (which was very low and most likely not going to happen). Being 37 years old, I felt I wasted enough time with other doctors and my husband and I, along with Dr. Sharara made the decision to go forward with IVF.
Since this [Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine] is a small practice, you will get to know every single person by name. They will greet you with kindness each and every time. They will give you a hug when you need one and will be there right by your side the entire way. You will feel like a person that is part of a team where everyone is rooting for you...Jo, my primary nurse was always on call for me. She helped me though every step, especially with the injectables. I went to her to show me everything on day 1 of my shots. I could call her anytime with questions. She even offered to do my shots for me if needed (since my husband was out of town for 2 1/2 months) during this whole process.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Fady Sharara at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine?

I felt the utmost care and concern from the first time I met Dr. Sharara. He shared his plan with me, and we started our journey together.
Describe the protocols Fady Sharara used in your cycles at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
From day 1, there was a plan in place. I went through several screenings, including detailed blood work and blood screeners, a HSG and a hysteroscopy.

I also found out from the hysteroscopy that I had cysts along my uterine wall (that could have been caused from all the hormones I had taken for IUIs prior to finding Dr. Sharara).

He [Dr. Sharara] was thorough, enthusiastic, and responsive as my partner and I talked.... I have full confidence in his medical abilities. When potential surrogate complications came up, and when we were applying for grants, his bedside became a bit curt/dismissive... The treatment strategies and protocols he described were in line with the ones described to occur at other clinics. His rationales made sense, and I know he has gotten results.
Virtually everything about the clinic was strong. Everything was well-organized, thorough, and personalized. If they were more receptive to grants and "compassionate" surrogates, that would be better, but overall, I'd definitely recommend Virginia Center.... The costs were in line with the other clinics in the area. The helpful aspect of Viriginia Center was they were able to itemize everything and provide a comprehensive total.

How was your experience with Fady Sharara at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine?
He was thorough, specific, responsive, and positive when my husband and I met with him. I have full confidence in his medical abilities. When potential surrogate complications came up, and when we were applying for grants, his bedside became a bit curt/dismissive, as if he has plenty of people who will pay full prices for all aspects, so why should he deign to do anything differently / put forth extra effort / cater to those with financial hurdles? That said, during the traditional procedure process, he was excellent.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Fady Sharara at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Go in for treatment already signed up with a surrogacy agency, and you'll have a great experience.

The costs were in line with the other clinics in the area. The helpful aspect of Viriginia Center was they were able to itemize everything and provide a comprehensive total. Other clinics seemed to have asterisks everywhere, and it was hard to gauge a final number.
Describe Fady Sharara's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine.
He prefers single embryo transfer, and his rationale / the nurse's explanation was convincing.

After a long road of miscarriages, problems and infertility- we finally found Dr. Sharara. From the first appointment he was finding solutions, and ready to get started-he understood what an emotional time it was for us, and made it known that he would not give up. I came out of every single appointment smiling, even the ones where he bore bad news, because there was never bad news without a new solution, and a new action.
The clinic [(VCRM)] was clean and extremely organized. The wait time was surprisingly minimal- we were always seen right away! Even if we arrived a little bit early. The staff are all kind, and understood the need to sometimes make last minute appointments. Overall, a top notch clinic...My nurse, Jo, was absolutely wonderful. Caring, kind and compassionate- she was with me through every step of the way. I always felt like I could talk to her about anything, as emotional as I would get, and she always understood and listened.

How was your experience with Fady Sharara at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Sharara is a truly amazing Doctor and person. My husband and I are so grateful to him- we went from having no hope, and thinking we would never be able to have kids, to being now on our way to be the parents of three! After a long road of miscarriages, problems and infertility- we finally found Dr. Sharara. From the first appointment he was finding solutions, and ready to get started-he understood what an emotional time it was for us, and made it known that he would not give up. I came out of every single appointment smiling, even the ones where he bore bad news, because there was never bad news without a new solution, and a new action. His knowledge and progressive ways are remarkable, and he is extremely thorough in every aspect of treatment, from diet and lifestyle to specific doses of medication, when many doctors are not. On a personal level, he is incredibly kind, attentive, and respectful. I was ushered into the appointment room as soon as I arrived to every single appointment, and greeted with kind words. With his support and the support of his wonderful staff, we had our first amazing miracle- our son. And again today, we are pregnant with twins!! I cannot thank them enough. I would recommend Dr. Sharara to anyone hoping to conceive, without a moment's hesitation. He is the best.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Fady Sharara at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Trust his method, and listen to his advice about diet, it really helps.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Fady Sharara at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Him and his staff are so incredibly kind- they asked about me every single time I went in, and followed up with phone calls between some appointments too. I always felt comfortable and taken care of at his office.

I was definitely educated on the trade offs, and he was reluctant to transfer more then one. But at my insistence, we ended up transferring two.

Dr. Sharara and his team truly went above and beyond for us.... His cautiously optimistic style left us feeling confident that we were not being sold a bill of goods, and irrespective of the outcome, we were receiving the best care available...He provided comprehensive answers with respect to the causes of our infertility, in a no-nonsense and straightforward manner. In our first meeting he took the time to listen to our experiences, and understand why we were there. He reviewed our previous test results, and explained things our prior provider had never mentioned. He immediately put his finger on what he felt was the problem. He didn’t promise us miracles, but he did promise us a clear path forward, and alternative paths if need be.
we would recommend Dr. Sharara and the team at VCRM to anyone seeking answers to their infertility questions...he has done well to employ a staff full of kind and empathetic women, who will hold your hand as frequently as you need it. Mary and Ashley, who manage reception, are an absolute joy. Jo, Jessica, and LJ, the nursing team, are all experienced and thoughtful. Jo, his head nurse, is particularly adept at making you feel like you are the only patient. She is exceptionally compassionate and served as a rock during an emotionally difficult time; a task she undoubtedly undertakes with other patients.

How was your experience with Fady Sharara at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine?
After several months with a well-known, and well-advertised regional fertility clinic my husband and I found ourselves increasingly frustrated with their lack of transparency, and their inability to provide real answers. Like everyone struggling to conceive, we wanted a baby, but we also wanted to understand the why and how behind our infertility. That’s when we went to see Dr. Sharara. It was by far the best decision we could have made. He provided comprehensive answers with respect to the causes of our infertility, in a no-nonsense and straightforward manner. In our first meeting he took the time to listen to our experiences, and understand why we were there. He reviewed our previous test results, and explained things our prior provider had never mentioned. He immediately put his finger on what he felt was the problem. He didn’t promise us miracles, but he did promise us a clear path forward, and alternative paths if need be. His cautiously optimistic style left us feeling confident that we were not being sold a bill of goods, and irrespective of the outcome, we were receiving the best care available. We knew then that we had found our doctor.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Jo)
Dr. Sharara clearly cares about his patients, but his approach doesn’t include a lot of coddling; it simply isn’t his style. However, he has done well to employ a staff full of kind and empathetic women, who will hold your hand as frequently as you need it. Mary and Ashley, who manage reception, are an absolute joy. Jo, Jessica, and LJ, the nursing team, are all experienced and thoughtful. Jo, his head nurse, is particularly adept at making you feel like you are the only patient.

Describe your experience with Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine.

Dr Sharara is warm, and explained everything to my husband and me in the level of detail we needed....He addressed previously undiagnosed issues and although we were ready to start an IVF cycle, he helped us conceive naturally. We welcomed our daughter in October....He started us on the PCOS diet and supplements, as well as thyroid medication, with the goal of doing IVF. While monitoring ovulation to determine next steps, we conceived naturally within 2 months.
The office [Virginia Ctr for Repro Med] is comfortable, and appointments were always on time....My nurse gave me her personal cell phone number to stay in contact with her if i had any issues at any time with our treatment protocol....Dr Sharara accepted our insurance and helped us maximize our benefit. Additionally, we were able to use our FSA for many of the office visits and charges. Dr Sharara also was less expensive than another fertility factory in the area.

How was your experience with Fady Sharara at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine?

Dr. Sharara was warm and approachable and at the same time a man on a mission. He was busy, but you knew that he was busy trying to make his patients happy. The entire team felt like a big family. I trusted him and have no regrets to this day...Because he is a man on a mission, he moves swiftly. As a patient (and frequently an infertile one), you are stressed and emotional and wanting to go slowly through the steps. It helps to just ask him to slow down and talk you through it...
The nurses [at VA Ctr for Repro Med (VCRM] were a bit slow to warm up but great once you get to know them. To this day, I still communicate with a nurse who shares my birthday and it is awesome!...Because it is a private practice, they are a bit moody or susceptible to the whims of emotion...There are also many high profile patients who visit the practice in fleets of fancy cars and armored vehicles. Be prepared...

Because he is a man on a mission, he moves swiftly. As a patient (and frequently an infertile one), you are stressed and emotional and wanting to go slowly through the steps. It helps to just ask him to slow down and talk you through it
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Fady Sharara at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine?
This is a private practice, so every patient is treated like a princess. All the way from walking through the front door to seeing the doctor to seeing the anesthesiologist to doing most of the procedures in house
Describe the protocols Fady Sharara used in your cycles at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
While we had done natural cycle IVF, this was our one regular IVF with all of the drugs and procedures that you would expect. Dr. Sharara had exhausted every other option through thorough testing. It was as low stress as you'd hope and successful. While the patient always deserves credit for a positive attitude, he was an exceptional doctor
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses were a bit slow to warm up but great once you get to know them. To this day, I still communicate with a nurse who shares my birthday and it is awesome !
Describe your experience with Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Because it is a private practice, they are a bit moody or susceptible to the whims of emotion. There are also many high profile patients who visit the practice in fleets of fancy cars and armored vehicles. Be prepared

We felt very confident with Dr. Sharara. He explained everything very clearly to us and we trusted him every step of the way. He was so caring and professional. I was nervous about doing fertility treatments, but as soon as we met Dr. Sharara we knew we were in good hands...We were also worried about finding a doctor who was LGBT-friendly. Dr. Sharara and his staff were so wonderful!!...he walked us through every choice we made.
worried about finding a doctor who was LGBT-friendly. Dr. Sharara and his staff were so wonderful!! We are so glad we found VCRM...I’ve never been to a doctor’s office were I spent so little time in the waiting room. Dr. Sharara and his staff were so respectful of our time. Everyone was so welcoming every time we came in and they were all so helpful and supportive. Through all the ups and downs, Dr. Sharara and his staff were compassionate and caring. When I was far enough along to move on to seeing an obstetrician, we were sad to say good-bye to everyone at VCRM. Both my wife and I would highly recommend Dr. Sharara!

Because Dr Sharara [at Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine] is no nonsense you must show up to appointments on time with all of your information, questions, etc. ready to go.

Perfect for me but others might feel like they are being rushed which is not really the case...His costs were a little higher than the large group we ha seen previously but were in-line with what we found to be local rates in our area.
