We’re all doing our part and remain diligent to providing care in the safest environment possible,” shared Anish Shah, M.D., of SGF Richmond.

“While this pandemic shook all of us to our core, what never wavered was our commitment to our patients. We’re thrilled we were able to devise safe, effective care strategies that keep our patients advancing and progressing toward their goal of building a family. Infertility is a disease that affects us emotionally, physically, spiritually, and often financially. It’s been inspiring to see the strength of the human spirit persevere during this time of uncertainty. Fortunately, thanks to the tremendous efforts made by frontline healthcare professionals and everyone doing their part to shelter in place for a while, the number of new cases and hospitalizations has drastically reduced across our nation. New guidance allows us to provide care for infertility as an essential service,” said Erika Johnston, M.D., of SGF Richmond.
