The clinic [Shady Grove Fertility] is large but you are treated like an individual. We've rarely felt like we are in a factory. It is just smooth and well-run for the most part.

How was your experience with Paul Shin at Shady Grove Fertility?
He is open, honest and willing to answer all questions. He explained the preferred course of action and what the results would be. Given our ages, he thought that we should see the varicocele surgery through the 9 month wait period to look for improvements. We chose to move forward with IVF but in the hopes that we could conceive naturally down the line.
