Very sweet, knowledgeable and has a calming demeanor. Great experience.
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Yazigi and the SGFC staff. They are very knowledgable and kind. Dr. Yazigi called me himself after a failed treatment cycle to deliver the news and talk next steps. I also appreciate that he made me aware of my options very early on, which allowed me to not waste time on treatments that weren't working for me, which ultimately got me pregnant faster.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Yazigi! He has been so wonderful from the very start of our journey which began a few of years ago. Tragically, we lost our precious baby girl at 9 weeks old due to an unknown genetic condition. Dr. Yazigi has been extremely empathetic and supportive through this horrific tragedy. He has been holding my hand and helping me to move forward. I wish there were more Doctors like Dr. Yazigi in the world. He is a wonderful Dr. and has truly become like family to me.

I was not satisfied with the care I received from Dr. Yazigi. I always felt rushed and dismissed in our appointments. He did not know my history (i.e. number of pregnancies, treatment protocol, etc.) from visit to visit and told me to get testing that he had already ordered and reviewed. He was very dismissive of my questions and I felt that he talked down to me when I had questions about my care.

The support staff, nurses, and other physicians at Shady Grove but unfortunately had a poor experience with Dr. Yazigi. He made initial recommendations to go with aggressive IVF treatment based on my history, then at the next appointment started talking about the IUI process and did not remember our initial conversation. Given fertility issues are sensitive, Dr. Yazigi lacks necessary empathy and has a poor bedside manor. He doesn't take much time for questions and rushes the appointment.
Very knowledgeable. He and his staff are very compassionate & are always available to answer questions or concerns you may have. He and his nurse, Stephanie, both have called me personally to check in throughout this process to see how I am doing. I feel very confident in their care for my husband and me.
Dr. Yazigi, Danielle Byrd and the rest of the SGFC team are excellent! Treatment can be a difficult process but the care I received made the process a bit easier. Now I have a wonderful 3 month old and I wouldn't be happier. Thanks to all involved!

Dr. Yazigi and his nursing staff are great! I have an extremely rare cause of infertility; 1/4,000 women affected. All of the medical journals are very grim and left me wondering if we should proceed. Dr. Yazigi took time to research my history, including to call for biopsy results from a previous surgery in 2008. He met with me and my husband after our failed cycles to discuss what went wrong and how to improve our chances for the next round. After an etopic pregnancy, he called me on a Sunday
