How was your experience with Shruti Malik at Shady Grove Fertility?
I had a bit of trouble with my IUI procedure (my fault as my cervix is fussy). Dr. Malik didn't hesitate and gave instructions in order to get it done! She said don't worry, we'll get it to cooperate and sure enough it did. Again, I didn't feel like a number, but rather a patient. It was the first time that my husband met her and he to took to her personality and demeanor. That sealed the deal for me! Whether we end up succeeding or not with a child, I'm glad that I'm under the care of Dr. Malik.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shruti Malik at Shady Grove Fertility?
I was able to sit down with Dr. Malik prior to even having treatment done. She didn't rush me or give me a run down like I was "just another patient". She listened to what I had to say and moved forward with treatment that way.
Describe the protocols Shruti Malik used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility and their degree of success.
I have a fussy cervix and it takes doctors a while to find. Sometimes they get frustrated and have to call other doctors in to help. Dr. Malik was a pro, found it and made it work. Although the IUI was unsuccessful, at least I know that I have a doctor who puts in the work!

Patrice is AMAZING!! She's very thorough with her explanations and makes sure that you understand everything that's going on.
Describe your experience with Shady Grove Fertility.
Weaknesses: I called to find out about getting day 3 bloodwork done. The front desk person gave me the astronomical price for bloodwork, but didn't mention that I could also go to LabCorp and get it done for way cheaper. I was a bit concerned that it wasn't even mentioned as an option.
Strengths: Short wait time to be seen, my nurse (Patrice).
