How was your experience with Shruti Malik at Shady Grove Fertility?
Dr. Malik went through the same initial presentation as another Shady Grove doctor, complete with hand drawing of uterus and fallopian tubes. She has a nice "bedside manner" even though she never actually participated in any of my procedures.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shruti Malik at Shady Grove Fertility?
Speak up if you think something is not going well.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shruti Malik at Shady Grove Fertility?
I felt that Dr. Shruti really did understand how difficult this process was for me and she called me directly after at least one failed IUI and talked about my concerns.
Describe the protocols Shruti Malik used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility and their degree of success.
We did 3 cycles of IUI. First I was on Clomid, the emotional side effects were terrible for me and I was quite angry about how I felt while on the medication because it basically put me into a panic attack state for a couple of days. With this feedback the next two cycles used Femara instead. We did 3 cycles of IUI and none of them worked.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Shady Grove Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Alison)
Alison was responsive, polite, and professional.
Describe your experience with Shady Grove Fertility.
This clinic is conveniently located near Route 50 and Route 66. It's right next to a Mall, so if you feel upset after your visit there are many outlets for your feelings there. The office is pretty boring, it's not particularly nice waiting there but nothing terrible either.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shruti Malik at Shady Grove Fertility.
I had insurance that covered up to 6 rounds of IUI when I saw Dr. Malik.
