Dr. Shah has a phenomenal bed-side manner; she was always very patient and asked me how I was throughout the ultrasounds and the treatments. She would apologize for any discomfort, which of course, was not her fault, just the nature of the procedure. Dr. Shah always checked in on me and gave me a heads up when she was nearly finished with a procedure. When my partner and I asked questions about the treatment, she always made time for us and answer our questions, and was very understanding and supportive. She always greeted me with a smile and was very friendly and approachable. Thank you Dr. Shah for being the most amazing doctor I've worked with, I wish you could be my Doctor for everything!

She [Dr. Meera Shah] never allowed us to get discouraged. She was confident in the direction of the treatment, which ultimately gave us the confidence to continue. When we experienced a miscarriage, she seemed as heartbroken as we were but continued to encourage us and helped us to get through it. When we eventually got pregnant with our twins, it was the happiest moment of our lives and we were proud to have had Dr. Shah be a part of it with us. We've never had a more genuine and caring doctor.
[Nova IVF is] Clean and well organized. The rooms are big enough to where you don't feel cramped. Location is not the most convenient, but there are a good amount of hotels and restaurants in the area if you're coming in from out of town as we were.... Our strategy from the beginning was to get pregnant without IVF. She believed that we were both young and healthy enough to do it on our own, but for some reason it just wasn't happening. We planned to do 3-4 IUI treatments. After the third treatment, we got pregnant but had a miscarriage

Our strategy from the beginning was to get pregnant without IVF. She believed that we were both young and healthy enough to do it on our own, but for some reason it just wasn't happening. We planned to do 3-4 IUI treatments. After the third treatment, we got pregnant but had a miscarriage. At that point, we knew we were on the right path. We took a couple of months off to deal with the heartbreak of the miscarriage and started up again with the same strategy in mind. We were pregnant with twins after a couple of months.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Nova IVF.
Very considerate and caring. Organized and respectful of their patient's time.
