She [Dr. Natalie Stentz] was and is an amazing doctor. I am a transman and going through this process was so difficult for me...made me feel so comfortable. She ensured that her staff continually acknowledged me as sir, and he and they were so friendly and comforting during this process. She got me 26 eggs preserved and frozen...allowing me to finish my transition successfully. She changed my life! I've never been so excited to do something like this!
The nursing staff was just as amazing as Dr. Stenz was. Kenzie called me just about every other day to check on my process and any answer I had she answered it quickly and she was so helpful. Again, as a transgender man, this was so difficult for me to do, but Kenzie and Dr. Stenz showed me differently and believed in me and helped me get through. Because of them, I have 26 eggs waiting for me and wife as we begin this journey of having children.
How was your experience with Natalie Stentz at Shady Grove Fertility Atlanta?
Dr. Stenz from Shady Grove Fertility was so amazing that i captured my whole journey and recommended this very clinic on youtube. She made my dreams come true as a transman and that's to still have children that are related to me as my wife carries them, allowing me to finish my transition successfully. She changed my life! I've never been so excited to do something like this!

Describe the protocols Natalie Stentz used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility Atlanta and their degree of success.
We went two weeks of me taking medication that helps your ovaries to stimulate so that the eggs can be frozen. For those two weeks, I had to come in a couple of times so they could do the ultrasounds and just monitor my process. After the 10th day of the meds, I had an in house small procedure to extract the 41 eggs that were produced. This process literally took me 3 months from start to finish.

Success w/ Doc Not sure
I had one meeting with Dr Stentz. I felt confident in the ability for me to conceive using IVF. I remember being ashamed that I failed at conceiving naturally when it mattered most. I just remember leaving the consult more positive than I did when I went in...I didn’t see Dr Stentz after my consult ( maybe once or twice throughout)...it was reassuring that they were confident in our success odds.
[Shady Grove Fertility Atlanta is] sort of a conveyor belt situation That manages to capture compassion. I believe there need to be more clinics like this that offer affordable options for this vital service...[the nurses are] all Shades of wonderful. The best nurse I have ever worked with from a patient’s perspective (I am a nurse manager)...They made things easy and had so much compassion.
How was your experience with Natalie Stentz at Shady Grove Fertility Atlanta?
I didn’t see Dr Stentz after my consult ( maybe once or twice throughout). Her nurses are the best!! Absolute gems. They made things easy and had so much compassion. Dr Stentz helped me understand that I was ready to start the procedure and tried to make sure I understood finances by linking me up with a financial advisor immediately after the visit. I had just found out that I had bilateral hydrosalpinx and removed both my Fallopian tubes a few months earlier. I was feeling very bad because I was taking the blame for “frying” my tubes when I needed to be making our family. It was a very stressful time for me and I feel like she truly empathized. I felt that way and it made me feel better. She laid out a potential plan for me and ensured me that my age made me a viable candidate for the shared risk program (which we couldn’t afford). Although, our finances didn’t allow us choose this option, it was reassuring that they were confident in our success odds.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Natalie Stentz at Shady Grove Fertility Atlanta?
Don’t blame yourself. Make sure you have a support system because it’s lonely going through this alone. So far Dr Stentz has Shady are a decent company. I sometimes wonder if I should have gotten a second opinion before my salpinjectomy with Dr Schirmer at Emory.

I remember using lupron as a trigger because I was nearing symptoms of OHSS. I used Gonal F, Menopur and Cetrotide injections Progesterone pessaries and estrogen tablets . Sorry that I don’t have specifics

all Shades of wonderful. The best nurse I have ever worked with from a patient’s perspective (I am a nurse manager). She is great !!
Describe your experience with Shady Grove Fertility Atlanta.
It’s sort of a conveyor belt situation That manages to capture compassion. I believe there need to be more clinics like this that offer affordable options for this vital service. We took out a loan of 20,000 and have no baby. To do an FET we have been saving to make sure we have a little over $5000 to pay for that. There is an added layer of stress when you know you have to make it work. It’s just something that families shouldn’t have to deal with because they suffer from infertility.

Describe Natalie Stentz's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Shady Grove Fertility Atlanta.
I would rather double and requested them. I have strong breast cancer links in my family and recently had to do a biopsy bilaterally to r/o cancer. I just want to have as less hormonal shifts as I can control. With each cycle (being that our first one failed) and my next mammogram was abnormal, I don’t want to have too many more.
What specific things went wrong at Shady Grove Fertility Atlanta?
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Shady Grove Fertility Atlanta.
I had my brother dropping me off for my retrieval because my husband was out of the state . The day before, I informed the clinic staff that I wanted everything to be confidential as my brother did not know I was undergoing treatments. I ask to speak with several people to make sure my appointment was run smoothly. I specifically told they to not discuss anything in the lobby or ask if he wanted to come to the back with me. The very next day, they did both things and I had to tell my brother I am infertile.

Dr. Stentz is approachable, which was important to me. She didn’t laugh at my questions and she never made me feel like my questions and concerns were irrelevant. She told me what to expect and has communicated changes in the plan effectively and in a timely manner.... During my consultation she informed me that I would be a good candidate for IUI or IVF and she told me we would wait for my test results to make a final decision. During my ultrasound she could tell I was in pain and gave some helpful suggestions to make future vaginal ultrasounds more comfortable.
The office [Shady Grove Fertility] is warm and inviting. The receptionists are sweet and do their best to answer questions. They make you feel like you’re part of a family. They have multiple locations and everyone I’ve encountered has been pleasant. They make small talk to get to know you so you and help calm your nerves.... Kaylee explained the process and what I needed to do to get the ball rolling. When I called in with questions she was quick to get answers and schedule follow up appointments.

Take a list of questions with you during the consultation. She may answer most of your questions before you ask, but she’s always willing to further explain and address the patients concerns/inquiries.

She explained why and how the use of dilators would help reduce my discomfort and gave a few suggestions of places to purchase them.

Dr. Stentz was extremely thorough in accessing my medical history and providing the best treatment possible. She walked me step-by-step on what the process for IUI and IVF entail...Her bedside manner was compassionate and empathetic, but she also made me feel like there was hope for my situation...I was initially overwhelmed, but she eased my anxieties and explained how we could navigate through all aspects of IVF together. She happily answered all of my questions, and she gave me the confidence that I needed understanding the path forward for expanding my family.
Shady Grove has multiple locations in my city, and they do an amazing job making themselves accessible for their clients. They answer emails timely, and they are extremely professional. I believe they put great effort in keeping their clients informed by hosting educational and financial webinars...The nurses were very friendly, professional, and warm. Considering the nature of the clinic, their bedside manner was much appreciated and instrumental in keeping me calm.

[Dr. Stentz] seems to genuinely care about my experience. It feels like she’s truly disappointed and frustrated when things don’t work out and she’s talked to her peers and others for other ideas to help us...She has tried different options, talking with different doctors, and pushed hard for us...After 3 failed iui’s we moved on to IVF which was our choice but also suggested by Dr Stentz...I know she only wanted to transfer one embryo but we never got to that point because none of our embryos matured.
I like the smaller office feel and that the staff remembers you and us compassionate during so many visits [to Gago Center for Fertility].
