What People Say About Dr. Rachana Garde, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

We used Dr. Garde and SGF to conceive our first child. When we were ready for Baby 2, we had no hesitation to visit with her again. She is kind, genuine, understanding, patient, and trustworthy. She clearly explained our options in both instances, and supported the decisions we made in the process. It was clear to us as an LGBT couple that she was 100% rooting for us to conceive, even going so far as to personally call us to congratulate us on our pregnancy since she wasn't in the office in person on our "graduation" day. You will not find a better doctor, or person, around. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Garde!

Dr. Garde cheerfully greeted us herself when it came time for the appointment, and she escorted us to her office. She was relaxed, down to earth, and displayed confidence and competency during our consult. She took her time explaining her answers to our questions and we did not feel rushed. She was genuinely kind and empathetic. We felt validated and heard during the appointment and left feeling confident with how to move forward.

This was myself and my partner's first time trying to conceive. We went to Dr. Garde for an initial consult to discuss IVF and IUI. She was very informative and made sure all of our questions were answered. She never once got annoyed with us and our billion questions. She suggested we try a natural IUI first, and add medication if it seemed to be needed and we were successful on the first attempt! We absolutely love Dr. Garde and the Shady Grove staff!

Dr. Garde was always very friendly and welcoming to my husband and I. She was thorough in answering our questions in one-on-one meetings and put us at ease during the most stressful time in our lives. The staff at the Fairfax office were wonderful, with the exception of Lavona, Dr. Garde's nurse. We were never confident that Lavona was knowledgable enough to be giving us important information and on more than one occasion she actually gave us the wrong information, which was extremely alarming.

I will only recommend Dr Garde because she's nice and professional. But my experience was terrible with my procedure. Poor communication and follow-up with patient care.

Dr. Garde helped my husband and I with our dream of becoming parents. She never gave up on us and never let us give up on ourselves. The office in Woodbridge is amazing and the whole staff is incredibly caring. I recommend them to everyone!

Dr. Garde and her staff were instrumental in my getting pregnant, supportive when I lost that pregnancy at 30 weeks due to preeclampsia and once again later on when I was ready to try again. I was always able to reach someone when I had a question or a concern. I felt that I was more than just a name or number when I was in their offices and I felt respected as I chose the options that I was most comfortable with.

The care and attention my husband and I received from Dr. Garde and the Woodbridge staff was top notch. They have helped to guide us through every step of our IVF journey. She helped us to make our dreams of having our first child a reality.
