Dr. McCarthy-Keith is a wonderful, caring physician who gave my husband and I the confidence we needed during our infertility journey. She is patient, kind and truly cares about each of her patients. After 3 unsuccessful IUIs and 1 round of IVF, we finally have our beautiful baby boy in our arms. With 4 more embryos on ice we will definitely be back to see Dr. MK when it’s time to grow our family again.

I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. McCarthy-Keith to anyone trying to conceive! She supported me and my husband along our fertility journey with tremendous expertise, compassion, patience, and respect of our interests. As a physician myself, I highly valued her exquisite bedside manner as well as her technical and medical knowledge and skills. She always made time for us, including answering all of my questions that arose along the way. She didn't push us to any one treatment, but instead listened as we shared our story, and we navigated the different options together. I couldn't imagine having any other doctor during this special time in our lives that required tremendous patience and trust. We are now completely in love with our daughter and are so glad that we chose Shady Grove Fertility to help us experience the miracle of life!

We had a successful IVF cycle with Dr. MK. After months of trying for a baby and feeling it was almost impossible, Dr. MK gave us hope after the very first appointment. 3 months later we were pregnant! So thankful for IVF and Dr. MK. We plan on returning to continue expanding our family.

Dr MCCarthy- Keith and her team are phenomenal! From the beginning she was very welcoming, upfront, thorough and it was clear she cared about doing what was best for me specifically. Her team was professional and compassionate and I felt like we were all in this together! The end goal was to get me pregnant and transferred successfully back to my OBGYN and when the time came, while overjoyed with my pregnancy, I was sadden to be released from their care, that’s just how good they are!

This is going to be a little lengthy, but if you are looking for a clinic, I promise it will be worth your while! My husband and I had tried for four years to have a baby. During those four years, I was placed on several medications and went through countless painful tests and a failed IUI with another fertility clinic in the Atlanta area before we were told that I had "unexplained infertility." The clinic we were originally with felt cold and distant - like we were just another cog in a wheel.

Words can’t express how grateful we are for Dr MK and team! They quickly became family from the beginning of our fertility journey. It took us 4 years and 3 losses to finally welcome our baby boy this April. Dr. MK and nurses were always there with support and positive reinforcement that we had the right plan in place and that we would one day be parents. We recommend that anyone who is needing extra help starting or growing a family work with this group. They are the best! The Summers Family

We LOVED working with Dr. McCarthy-Keith and her awesome team! It was so important for me to work with a woman fertility specialist who is well-established in the field, published, who knows her stuff, and who is straightforward with good bedside manner. I had setbacks in the IVF process (2 surgeries), she stayed positive. She used to practice as an OB, so she walked me through the few weeks after my positive pregnancy test. My husband and I will forever be grateful for this gift of life!
