We are proud to be accepted into this esteemed network and will continue to serve the Atlanta region with the personalized and highly specialized fertility care it deserves.

Shady Grove Fertility Atlanta (SGF Atlanta), formerly Georgia Reproductive Specialists, has been invited into Aetna’s Institutes of Excellence™ Infertility network beginning May 1, 2018. SGF Atlanta’s acceptance was based on meeting all of the criteria for credentialing, access, and contractual terms. Included in this recognition SGF Atlanta will be identified in Aetna’s member directories and in DocFind®, an online physician directory on Aetna’s website.

“We are proud to be accepted into this esteemed network and will continue to serve the Atlanta region with the personalized and highly specialized fertility care it deserves,” says Dr. Desireé McCarthy-Keith.

“Our patients are the heart of our practice and, as fertility specialists, we take great pride in helping them to achieve their dream of parenthood,” says Dr. Mark Perloe.

SGF Atlanta was also recently named Best Reproductive Endocrinology Practice by Kudzu, a service—originally focused on the local Georgia market who’s expanding across the country—that matches businesses with customers based on customer ratings and reviews. Each of the three SGF Atlanta physicians, Drs. Mark Perloe, Anne Namnoum, and Desireé McCarthy-Keith were also recognized by Kudzu as Best Fertility Specialists. This recognition is voted on by members of the surrounding Atlanta community. Each highly trained physician brings equal parts clinical expertise and human compassion to each patient’s unique fertility journey.

“The most important distinction for us is to see that ultrasound and hear that heartbeat. We work tirelessly, alongside our patients, to help them build the family they’ve always dreamed of. To have earned their trust and know that many recommend us to others is extremely fulfilling,” says Dr. Anne Namnoum.

In addition, SGF Atlanta was also recently designated as a Center of Excellence by Optum,™ a leading information and technology-enabled health services business. SGF Atlanta earned this distinction by demonstrating successful clinical outcomes and exceptional physician experience, staffing, and facilities, as well as maintaining accreditation status and continuous quality assurance.

While Georgia Reproductive Specialists has been in practice since 2000, SGF Atlanta was formed in July 2017 when GRS and Shady Grove Fertility, which has 25 locations throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., announced their merger. By combining the successful clinical, scientific, and operational approaches, the merger offered an exceptional opportunity to provide enhanced fertility services and unique financial programs to the Atlanta community. To learn more, schedule an appointment at any one of SGF Atlanta's three locations by calling 888-971-7755.
