We LOVED working with Dr. McCarthy-Keith (Dr. MK) and her awesome team! It was so important for me to work with a woman fertility specialist who is well-established in the field, published, who knows her stuff AND who has good bedside manner. The IVF process is stressful enough, so I needed a fertility specialist who would be understanding and attentive, but straightforward at the same time. I had a few setbacks in the IVF process (2 surgeries) and Dr. MK + team stayed hopeful and positive through it all. She even used to practice as an OB, so she walked me through ultrasounds in the few weeks after my positive pregnancy test (with my last being today!). She is the BEST!!! Her IVF nurses are awesome too: Devon, Jaclyn, and Rita. My husband and I will forever be grateful for this gift of life. Should my husband and I decide to have a second child, we will definitely want to work with Dr. MK and her team again. :)

We love Dr. McCarthy-Keith (M-K) and her entire staff! Everyone from beginning to end was awesome and we nicknamed Dr. M-K Wonder Woman. Shout out to Nurse Jaclyn who was just as fabulous and very supportive from beginning to end too. Thanks so much again as we are eternally grateful and appreciative of the entire GRS staff. All 10 fingers up for a great place that genuinely cares for you (on time!) and will do all they can to help make your family dreams come true :-)!!

Nobody wants to find themselves needing a reproductive endocrinologist, but if you have to go through this process I would strongly recommend Dr. M-K and the staff at GRS. They always made me feel cared for and it was clear on the tearful day that my husband and I "graduated" with our baby girl on the way that they couldn't have been more genuinely happy for us. Her nurses (Devon, Cherie, Lisa) are great and I couldn't have made it through without Rita who went above and beyond to take care of me. The front desk greeted me by name and everyone was always so friendly.

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a group of inherited red blood cell disorders. The only cure for SCD is bone marrow transplant. I did not find out I had sickle cell trait until I was in my 2nd trimester with my daughter. My husband also had to be tested, he also had sickle cell trait. My OB informed us my daughter has 25% chance of having SCD. As Christians; my husband and I strongly believed she will fall into the 75% group. 9/29/15, exactly1mon after delivery; we confirmed she has SCD. The emotions were raw; devastated, angry, disappointed, extreme guilt... We channeled all energy towards finding a cure. After some research, we end up at Dr. DMK's office 8/21/2015. Although I was taking necessary medical steps to avoid having another child with SCD and desperately finding a cure for my daughter; my spirit diverged. I felt conflicted trusting God by trying a natural way or trusting God to use science to bring a solution. Dr. DMK's calm demeanor, indescribable bedside manner, professionalism, empathetic connection, positive energy, and most importantly her strong faith in God naturally instilled peace to my soul. Sounds crazy, but I can't explain it. I truly believe Dr. DMK is an angel created specifically to lift off burdens of women. Dr. DMK is not only a great doctor but an astounding human being. Words are not enough to describe how incredible Dr. DMK is. I will always hold her dear to my heart. 10wks pregnant;my son is SCD free & HLA match for his sis
ONLY God did it but he used his angel Dr. Desiree Monique McCarthy-Keith and I'm eternally grateful. YES! YES!! YES!!! I recommend Dr. DMK one hundred billion times. You won't regret it.

Dr. McCarthy-Keith (MK) is a brilliant and amazing reproductive endocrinologist. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for the past 3 1/2 years. My gynecologist referred me to Dr. MK and it was the best referral I have ever received. She was able to find the cause of my infertility and immediately put me on a plan. A year and a half later, I am now pregnant for the first time ever, and with twins. Dr. MK's bedside manner and professionalism are top-notch. You do not feel like a number or just another patient. Her and her phenomenal staff really care about you. I must say that because of the care that I received at Georgia Reproductive Specialists (GRS) and specifically from Dr. MK, I now expect the same level of care with any doctor that I see. Dr. MK has definitely set the bar. In my opinion, she is the best Reproductive Endocrinologist in Atlanta. I am truly going to miss her and the team at GRS.

My husband and I have never been able to get pregnant naturally. We've been together for a very very long time (going back to teenage years!). In the past several years, we saw a popular fertility clinic here in Atlanta and another two in New York City in between our moves. We ended up at GRS - and eventually in the hands of Dr. Keith after a recommendation. It was the best thing - at the best time - that could have happened to us. I never wanted a "hand holding" doctor, or worse, a doctor who fluffed---I wanted someone who was smart, thorough, I could trust----and someone who would come up with the right protocol and advise (PCOS). She was the real deal. Dr. Keith went right to business and after my first attempt at IVF, I'm currently 28 weeks pregnant with our first child at 41 years old. I felt like I could trust her care---even at moments when I was nervous or doubtful, something about her made me feel at ease and in good hands. Words cannot express how GRATEFUL I am to Dr. Keith and the staff of nurses at GRS (Rita, Devon..). If we decide on a second child - and given the opportunity - I know exactly where I'll end up again.... after several doctors and three different fertility clinics. Yes, highly recommend GRS. Love you Dr. Keith! :o) N/C

Dr. MK is awesome and so is her team. She listens to her patients and answers any questions you may have. During consultations she is focused on you and not other things like her cell phone (like another fertility doc we saw). She is very through and explains things in layman terms and is very patient. The staff at GRS is great as well, the finance dept. is very helpful and the nurses are great. I like that we only had one nurse to work with before the transfer and then one other one after the transfer. Its a great opportunity to build rapport with the people who are taking care of you. Both nurses were very accessible and would always return my phone calls or emails in a reasonable amount of time. The wait time at GRS is minimal usually less than 15 minutes before they call your name. We did one cycle of frozen embryo transfer and we are so happy to say that we will be expecting our first baby in July 2016!! I would recommend the reprogenetics testing to any couple going through IVF. She is hands down of the best doctors that I've met and would recommend her to anyone seeking help with infertility.

Dr. MK is the best! It was truly a blessing to have her help throughout one of the toughest and scariest parts of my life. She is so down to earth, knowledgeable, and genuine. Even in the face of (what I perceived to be) discouraging news about my AMH levels, her positivity and encouragement lifted me up and gave me the hope that I needed that we would be parents someday. Her dedication to her work, and to her patients, really shines through. The GRS staff is also amazing and they make you feel so cared for. I was so happy when we hit the jackpot and got pregnant after our first medicated IUI cycle, but I was also sad to move on from these wonderful people. I graduated with a heartfelt hug from Dr. MK and now we're awaiting the arrival of our first child in July!

Dr. M-K is incredibly smart, but also incredibly compassionate. She cares deeply about her patients, and I felt it every time I saw her (which, over the course of two years, was quite a bit). I have PCOS, and after 6 failed IUI treatments, my husband and I decided to move on to IVF. It felt like a scary decision, but Dr. M-K and the staff at GRS made the process very smooth. The entire staff is very easy to reach- they return phone calls promptly, and are accessible by email as well. Our first IVF attempt was a success, and we are now expecting boy-girl twins. I really cannot say enough good things about Dr. M-K, except that she has to be right up there with the best fertility physicians in the country. I feel very lucky that she was my doctor.

Words cannot express the gratitude my husband and I feel for Dr MK and her staff. You helped us navigate through one of the most challenging times in our lives and never gave up on our hopes for starting a family. Now we are 26 weeks pregnant and counting... excited to meet our baby girl in January! It's amazing what a difference 1 yr makes. Moon & Antonio Thomas

Dr. McCarthy-Keith is amazing. She is sweet, honest, and has a good heart. She has a great smile and when you meet her she talks to you like you are a friend. She is quick to give you a hug or a word of encouragement and radiates positivity. She answers all of your questions and the appointments never feel rushed. Dr. McCarthy-Keith is incredible and I highly recommend her!

From the moment we walked in, we could tell Dr. McCarthy-Keith was the perfect doctor for us. Her enthusiasm is infectious and her knowledge is extensive. If you want a doctor that will make your crusade to getting pregnant her own, Dr. McCarty-Keith is the one! I'm pleased to report my wife and I are expecting!

Dr. McCarthy-Keith is truly an answer to prayer! After years of trying to conceive on our own (and after using several medications including Metformin, Clomid, Femara, etc), we had no luck. Being diagnosed with PCOS and being overweight, I never knew if I could get pregnant. Several doctors later, we ended up in Dr. McCarthy-Keith's office. We were expecting the same thing...the recommendation for IVF due to my condition/weight. However, we could not afford that and really wanted to try IUI first. Dr. MK was willing to give it a try, and we got pregnant after our second IUI. Thank you Dr. MK for believing in us and going against other medical recommendations. You saved us a lot of money! I had been to other doctors that were cold and had no bedside manner. Dr. MK has amazing bedside manner. I never once felt like I was a number. She truly cared. Her staff (nurses) were also amazing...it's been a real struggle to be at an OBGYN because GA Reproductive took such good care of me! Now I am a number! I wish that I could have stayed with them through my pregnancy. When looking for a fertility specialist, look no further. Trust me. You will NOT be disappointed. Her skill and compassion are second-to-none :)
