Ratings for Dr. Shvetha M. Zarek
I am so thankful that SIRM and Dr. Zarek were put into our path. After two miscarriages, I felt hopeless. Until I came to SIRM and was embraced with open arms. Dr. Zarek assured me that she would run me through every test possible to see if there was anything causing these miscarriages. She also assured me that she would do everything in her power to ensure we would have a promising future. Was she ever right. Before we could get through all the testing, God blessed us and we became pregnant naturally. Dr. Zarek was by my side the entire time and had genuine passion, compassion, and concern as if she had a stake in this with us. She was genuinely rooting for us. She checked on my pregnancy regularly and got us through the first trimester. I was so nervous and she was so quick to answer any questions I had and kept me informed throughout. She is very personable and I felt like I could talk to her about any concerns. We are currently in the second trimester and are over the moon excited. Thank you for always being by my side through this. I gained not only an amazing doctor, but a friend. The staff was amazing through it all too. Cannot thank her and them enough and highly recommend.
I had the pleasure to meeting Dr Zarek over a year ago, I was referred to her by my OB as a last resort . Since having my first child almost 5 years ago I have seen several different specialist all coming up with the same answer. I was extremely frustrated as my husband and I weren't getting any answers. When my OB suggested Dr Zarek I was little hesitant. Dr Zarek spent a lot of time with my husband and I asking lots of questions to obtain a full medical background and history. She made us both feel very comfortable, at first meeting she brainstormed several possibilities and potential treatment options. She provided us with her personal cell phone number in case we had any follow up questions. I am a nurse and have worked in the medical field for 15 years, I have never met an MD so caring, understanding, knowledgeable and the willingness to go the extra mile to make me feel comfortable with my decisions. She never once made us feel rushed or pressured us into anything. I am happy to say that I am now 6.5 months pregnant, we are expecting our second child in May 2018. I have recommended Dr Zarek to many friends and patients. Thank you Dr Zarek.
We cannot thank SIRM and Dr. Zarek enough for helping us have our daughter. Dr. Zarek is amazing. Warm, knowledgeable and so dedicated. She and everyone at the clinic provide exceptional care because they really CARE. For anyone out there who is feeling scared about not being able to become a parent, stop, and go see Dr. Zarek. She will give you hope without making any false promises and will see you through the most important journey of your life. We absolutely love her.
Dr. Zarek is by far the "BEST" fertility doctor we have experienced!! We did NOT have a good experience with the first fertility doctor, however after we met and chose Dr. Zarek for our second attempt... we are NOW PREGNANT as of November 2017!! She is patient, accessible via phone, highly informative, candidly advisable, charismatic and passionately driven to assist clients such as my wife and myself to have children. We shall indeed return to this wonderful woman to have more children in the near future. Dr. Zarek... you are a blessing from GOD, and we are forever grateful unto you for making our ultimate dreams come true.
I have so much to say about our experience at SIRM with Dr. Zarek and don’t know where to start. First off, we are so thankful that God put us on the path to find her and the clinic. Our prayers were unanswered for so long and we lost hope. We knew instantly when we met her that we found a doctor who could help us. She explained everything thoroughly in a way that was easy to understand and honest. We had met with other REs where it felt like a sales pitch or they just did not seem to care. Never with Dr. Zarek. She understands that the infertility journey is difficult and knows what is at stake, emotionally and financially. I really appreciated how much time she spent with us to make sure we knew what to expect. She was looking out for us in a way that no other doctor ever has. IVF is not the easiest process to experience. Sometimes the news was not so positive and she had to be the one to deliver it to us. I never had a doctor check on me to make sure I was ok and assure me that all would work out. And all DID work out! We made it through and are expecting!!! It feels so great to be able to say that. Looking back, I am convinced that we were meant to find SIRM. There are many doctors and clinics out there but no other doctor or clinic who took care of us like Dr. Zarek and SIRM. No other doctor that I can imagine going through this journey with. She walks each step with you, side by side, like your best friend. For that, we are so grateful. My husband enjoyed coming to the office with me for visits. We were always greeted with smiles, hugs and laughter. It kept us up when we were not feeling so great. Jamie and Amy are the BEST! 2018 is our year to meet our son and we are beyond excited!!!!
From the moment my wife and I met Dr.Zarek in July 2017, we felt comfortable, confident, and relieved by the knowledge and compassion of our doctor. We cannot thank Dr. Zarek and the SIRM staff enough for making us feel like their family. They helped us through every step of the process from consult through retrieval and transfer. We unfortunately had a few hiccups along the way, but the entire staff was very attentive; including our doctor who allowed us to contact her directly. We would recommend SIRM for any couple! We are happy to say we are expecting our baby in July 2018!
We could not have hoped for any better than Dr. Zarek. She even gave us her personal cell phone number and encouraged us to conctact her any time. I didn't think I would need to, but I did. We came to her after having a less than ideal experience with a different ER. She listened to our concerns, worked with our schedules, and helped us to make a fertility plan that worked for everyone. My husband I are now expecting twins after years of struggling with infertility. We were with her through an egg retrieval and three transfers, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Can't recommend highly enough
Dr. Zarek & the staff were amazing! They were helpful, kind & always available (even an emergency contact nurse on the weekend!). Infertility can be stressful & pregnancy involves a lot of anxiety after trying to conceive without success. Dr. Zarek was amazing - she would sit down & answer any questions, she was flexible with appointments, & did everything she could throughout our entire process. Once, Dr. Zarek was out of the office, & Dr. Dayal met with me & was great! Fantastic experience, & looking forward to our baby girl because of the help from SIRM.
Dr. Zarek and her staff are truly amazing! My husband and I struggled to get pregnant for 3 years and felt hopeless. I have PCOS and started to believe that I was never going to be able experience being pregnant and having a family. A friend of mine recommended Dr. Zarek and told us about SIRM. We thought it was time to take the next step and we are glad we did! The day of our consult we were nervous and emotional. She instantly put our minds at ease and reassured us that we can become parents like any other couple. She explained our options and different test we could do. She helped us decide the correct path and now we are 14 weeks pregnant today!!!!! I feel like our baby dreams have come true! Dr. Zarek and her staff are very educated , skilled, and passionate about what they do! I encourage anyone that reads this to not be scared, embarrassed, or ashamed of infertility. Take the next step and visit SIRM!!!
