Patient Testimonial
Dr. Shah helped complete our family and answer our prayers. After his medical attention and direction, we now have a beautiful and healthy little boy.

Dr. Romanski filled us with so much hope when we needed it the most. Him and his team are absolutely amazing and hands on. I have never felt more cared for at a practice before. Highly recommend him for any fertility needs.

Dr. Barnard was wonderful to work with! I appreciated her care, patience, support, and calming demeanor. She was responsive, knowledgeable, and compassionate. While this process can be very intimidating and overwhelming, I felt better knowing that I had her on my side.

I began my own egg-freezing journey as an OB/GYN resident. Looking back 10 years later, now 38 years old, engaged, and ready to start my own family, I’m relieved to have frozen my eggs. At the same time, I feel obligated to give back and address the toll that surgical training has on women.

SGF in Alpharetta is fantastic. The office is beautiful and brand new. The office and clinical staff are friendly, they make you feel comfortable and they are very accommodating. I have never had to wait long for my appointment.

I have only wonderful things to say about Dr. Gay and his staff at the Alpharetta location. Knowledgeable, compassionate, and professional… I could not have asked for better care.


Shipra Shah, MSN, RN, FNP-C, earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing followed by a Master of Science in Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner, from Virginia Commonwealth University. Her NP clinical experience started with pediatrics, followed by urgent care, internal medicine, and wrapped up with obstetrics and gynecology where she performed routine gynecological examinations, ordered screening and diagnostic tests, and provided preventative gynecologic care and prenatal and contraception counseling.

Shipra spent the first several years of her nursing career working with pediatric patients in Virginia. As she progressed through her NP clinicals, she developed a passion for women’s health. Shipra then transitioned to reproductive medicine with Shady Grove Fertility Tampa Bay, drawn to the field’s scientific innovations while also being able to help people along their family building journeys.

Since joining SGF in March 2021, Shipra’s responsibilities include counseling patients on various fertility treatments, performing monitoring and baseline ultrasounds for fertility preservation and treatments, and completing intrauterine inseminations (IUI), endometrial biopsies, mock embryo transfers, and more.

A: I spent my early nursing career working in pediatrics. The most memorable part for me was caring for not only the pediatric patient, but for the family as a whole. Throughout NP school, I developed a passion for women’s health. The innovative world of reproductive medicine and my role here at SGF provided me with the best of both worlds while also helping patients along their journey of building a family.
