Great experience during a trying time!, 2/03/2015

The folks at GRS are very hard-working, knowledgeable and most importantly sensitive to the struggle!


GRS has changed our lives!, 1/08/2015

Our hopes for having children were dwindling, so our last resort was to make an appointment with Georgia Reproductive Specialists (per a friends recommendation) or settle on adoption. We started... seeing Dr. Mark Perloe in 2012. After testing both my husband and myself, the percentage of us having children was 3%! And of course I asked, “3% out of 100%, or 3 out of 10??”. 3% out of 100% was the answer we received. After many discussions considering IVF, adoption or accepting that we wouldn’t have children, we decided to begin treatment with Dr. Perloe. I will never forget Dr. P saying, “you will not leave my care until you are pregnant!”. His "bedside manner" is amazing; that of a friend, not just a doctor! Well, he made good on his word! In March 2014, we welcomed our girl/boy twins into the world! We never knew life could be so much more amazing than it already was! Many thanks go out to Dr. Perloe and the staff at GRS. They are ALL so nice and welcoming.. we actually enjoyed our doctor visits each time! I highly recommend this practice to anyone.

Fantastic service for an emotional process

We were originally referred to ACRM. After several visits with them, we were not happy with the lack of personal touch and the fact that we were constantly pointed to someone else for every question we had. Based on our experience with ACRM, we were ready to walk away from the IVF process all together. I decided to look around for an alternative when I came across GRS through one of their free seminars. What a difference!! Dr Perloe, Jacqueline, Yolanda, and all of their supporting staff were (are!) wonderful. They provided us with the personal touch we were looking for, and after 2 attempts I am now 9 weeks pregnant with twins! We still have a long way to go, but I would highly recommend GRS and specifically Dr. Perloe and staff to anyone.

Dr. McCarthy Keith

Dr. MK and Rita (IVF nurse) were like family to my husband and I. Our journey was was a long one and we always felt welcomed when we came for our appointments. Dr. MK always took her time to answer any questions we had with much patience. She even allowed a drug rep to come to her house at 10pm for a signature when there was a messed up order at the pharmacy. When Dr. MK called me to tell me we were pregnant, she gathered up the people involved in our journey and was on speakerphone so they could all be a part of that special moment. Pam, one of the nurses we worked with, even took the time to call me later with congratulations. Everyone there genuinely cares for their patients. I just can't say enough how much we love Dr. MK and her staff. I would recommend her to any and all needing assistance without a moments hesitation!

Dr. McCarthy Keith and her staff are amazing!!!

I honestly don't even know where to begin. In May, after two disappointing failed IVF cycles with another practice, we were referred to Dr. MK by a friend, that also happens to be an OB/GYN (Dr.Keisa Godwin). From the moment we entered the office, we knew that the experience would be different. Dr MK was warm and inviting, and made us feel very comfortable. She spent almost a full hour just talking to us about the process, from start to finish. Even before starting the process the first time, we were well aware of the fact that nothing was guaranteed, all that we ever asked for is for a fair shot. The first practice was cold and was more focused on collecting EVERY dime upfront. They run that place like an assembly line, and the doctor nor the staff were friendly. GRS was the complete opposite. The entire staff was very friendly. and it was apparent to both my husband and I that they really cared. I could go on and on, but the short of it is that our first cycle with Dr. MK was successful and we're now 11 weeks pregnant with twins! She customized a protocol to meet my specific needs and it worked!! I have been released to my OB/GYN, but the relationships that we have built with Dr.MK and her staff, will be long lasting. Anyone that is currently dealing with fertility issues, understands that it can be very emotionally draining experience, and having a doctor and staff that really cares, makes all the difference!! Thanks Dr MK and GRS!!! We are forever grateful!!!

18 Year Old with Possible POF

Before leaving for college my 18 year old daughter had a routine physical with her GP. The test results showed signs of infertility due to possible Premature Ovarian Failure (POF). We went to GRS discouraged, stressed, and confused. Dr. Kaplan talked to my daughter, not as a naive teenage girl, but as an independent woman who needed to be educated about her situation and ultimately who needed to make important decisions about her future. Not once did my young daughter feel apprehensive or uncomfortable under the care of Dr. Kaplan, which was one of my biggest fears. When we started the process Dr. Kaplan's staff had such positive attitudes and were willing to give her their undivided attention every time we met with them. I will always be grateful to Dr. Kaplan and her staff for making the first chapter in her journey a positive one.

Pregnancy Success with PCOS

We used GRS 8 years ago and with Dr. Conway's help delivered a beautiful daughter 9 months later. Last year we became pregnant unassisted, but our son was stillborn. Due to age and several health factors, we decided to consult with Dr. Conway and her staff again this Summer. The process was very hard to begin due to the loss we had recently experienced. Dr. Conway & her staff did everything possible to make us feel more comfortable and at ease with the process. Thankfully, the process was successful and we are now 11 weeks along. We couldn't be happier with GRS. THANK YOU Dr. Conway & Staff!

Love GRS and Dr Perloe!!!

I am currently 9 months pregnant with a healthy baby girl thanks to the amazing team at GRS. Dr.Perloe was recommended to me by my sister in law who has 2 healthy children thanks to him and his team. I can't say enough about how fantastic everyone was there from the front desk, to the nurses, LOVED Yolanda to the Dr's. It is such an emotional ride and they supported me the entire time. I was able to email Dr Perloe with questions and get responses almost instantly. Yolanda, his nurse gave me her cell phone and actually took my calls at all times of the night. There were many times I burst into tears at that office and they encouraged me and kept me positive. I have recommended Dr. Perloe to several of my friends because I think that highly of him and his team!

Thank you for your review! We think that Yolanda and Dr. Perloe are pretty awesome, too. Please let us know when your daughter is born. All the best, GRS

Thank you Dr. McCarthy-Keith

It was a great experience with GRS and Dr McCarthy-Keith. We had tough time with pregnancy and multiple IVFs at another clinic did not help. Thanks to the methodical approach from Dr McCarthy-Keith and her team, we are now 15weeks into pregnancy. Dr McCarthy-Keith was very thorough with our case and has a friendly and caring approach. She is one of the best doctors! Dr McCarthy-Keith has a great IVF nurse -Rita- who was very prompt and sincere in helping us go through the IVF process. Thanks to the GRS! RJoseph

Congratulations on your pregnancy! Rita and Dr. McCarthy-Keith make a great team. We are thrilled with your pregnancy news. Please keep in touch. All the best, GRS

Thank you Dr. McCarthy-Keith!

I spent just shy of 2 years battling infertility with my current OBGYN. After several unsuccessful rounds of clomid, she suggested I visit a specialist. It took me several months to decide I was ready for that next step. I was a patient of Dr. McCarthy-Keith for only 2 months before becoming pregnant via my first round of IUI. Dr. McCarthy-Keith was so easy to talk to, she made me feel very comfortable. She gave me and my husband giant hugs at the end of the process, and I am 16 weeks pregnant with a baby boy as I write this. I almost wish Dr. McCarthy-Keith was also an OBGYN, so I could experience the whole pregnancy with her. Thank you Dr. McCarthy-Keith.

Georgia Reproductive Specialists (GRS) replied on 09-04-2012

Everyone wishes that Dr. MK was their OBGYN! It's always a bittersweet graduation when patients leave. Please keep us posted on your growing belly. All the best, GRS

Great and caring team!

Extremely positive experience, I would say this even if I hadn't gotten pregnant. Team is grey, dr' Kaplan is kind and patient, great follow up . The ONLY draw back for the facility is that you have to pay for parking every time! This is a cost that should be factored into everything else you are paying for when you go. It gets annoying, and pricey. Think of how many visits then multiply by 4 bucks each time. Ugghhhh!,!!,!

Georgia Reproductive Specialists (GRS) replied on 09-04-2012

Free parking always makes my day, too. I am sorry that we cannot cover the cost of parking for all of our patients. We are so happy that you are pregnant! All the best, GRS

What a great referral!

After spending 7 months with unsuccessful attempts at ovulating with a diagnosis of angular PCOS, I was referred to Dr. Conway and her team. Dr. Conway made me aware of the underlying cause of my condition, and helped me develop a plan (metformin, diet, and exercise) to combat my insulin resistance. She stressed the importance of sticking to all of the steps of the plan, as it doesn't work without all 3. After 5 weeks of a low-carb diet, regular exercise, and metformin, I went in for more testing only to find that I was in fact pregnant! It was Dr. Conway and her vast knowledge of my condition that helped me get there, and I will never forget what they did for me. I will be giving birth to twin boys in 3 weeks, and my husband and I couldn't be happier.

Georgia Reproductive Specialists (GRS) replied on 09-18-2012

Congratulations! Just goes to show that fertility therapy is not always some high tech and expensive process. It’s amazing what can be accomplished with a dedicated medical team and a motivated patient – we did it together! Dr. Conway

I am 15 weeks pregnant THANKS to Dr. Mckarthy Kieth. She is wonderful in all ways. She knows her stuff but she is also a really caring person. When seeing her you could tell that it is not just a job to her it is her passion. I could call her or her nurses Pam and Rita at anytime with concerns and they always had answers,they never made me feel as though my concerns were too little or not important. In my time there I got to know a lot of the staff they are all really nice. They are very considerate of your time(never a long wait). My overall experience at GRS was outstanding I have been to others and none can come close to GRS and DR. Mckarthy Kieth.

So Happy!

We were so happy with Dr. McCarth-Keith and the entire staff. They kept us informed and made sure we understood exactly what was going on through the entire process. This can't be said for all reproductive specialists. Dr. McCarthy-Keith made herself available to us at all hours. She truley cares about her patients. Thanks to her, after 5 years or trying, we are expecting are first child. We are so happy and so thankful.

Wonderful experience with Dr. McCarthy-Keith

My husband and I have been trying for over 5 years to have a child and was not successful. Most of that time was spent with another medical group that we were not impressed with. On our first visit with Dr. McCarthy-Keith, we felt that we had come to the right place. She was extremely professional and detailed with the all of the tests. They found issues with my husband that had been ignored at the other facility. Dr. MK made us comfortable and gave us confidence that she could help us. And she did. Our first IVF worked and we are almost 11 weeks along already. We could not have achieved our dreams of a family without Dr. MK and her wonderful staff's help!
