Ratings for Dr. Desiree M. McCarthy-Keith
My husband and I were instantly taken by the care and attention that Dr. McCarthy-Keith and her staff showed on our first visit. It was also great to know that whenever we had a question whether in her office or sending her an e-mail over the Christmas holiday season, Dr. McCarthy-Keith would make the time to answer it. We'd tried for a year and half to get pregnant with no success, but after visiting with Dr. McCarthy-Keith, we become pregnant after just two months. We had a wonderful experience!
This is an amazing team to trust in your care. Dr. McCarthy-Keith and her staff had our backs as soon as we signed up for IVF. My husband gained her trust on the first visit (which was shocking). She along with IVF Nurse, Rita; Patient Care Coordinator, Lisa and the phlebotomy team are very knowledgeable in their area. After two cycles we are now expecting our first bundle of joy into the Philpot household due to this team. My husband and I appreciate the love, care and support they have given us throughout this process. You ladies ROCK!!!!!!
Dr. McCarthy-Keith and her team is wonderful. I had three miscarriage and one was an ectopic pregnancy. I later find out that both of my tubes are blocked. I was referred to Dr. McCarthy-Keith by my obgyn and that was the best thing she could ever tell my husband and I. Dr. McCarthy-Keith walked my husband and I through every step in the process of IVF. I can say that we are pregnant and THANK YOU to Dr. McCarthy-Keith and her team. The team kept me calm when I was scared and if I had any question they answered it until I had no other question to ask. I am not saying your body is not going to go through anything, I’m just saying Dr. McCarthy-Keith and her team made it comfortable to go through it. THANKS AGAIN Dr. McCarthy-Keith.
Dr. McCarthy-Keith is an excellent physician! She treats patients with respect, has good clinical judgement and takes the time to explain the pros and cons of various treatment approaches to patients. She is not only caring and compassionate but also provides patients with emotional support/encouragement and takes a genuine interest in her patients. I highly recommend her to persons in need of a fertility specialist.
Dr. McCarthy-Keith (Doc) and the GRS staff are amazing! I couldn't have had a better experience. My husband and I visited another fertility clinic years ago and we did not get that warm fuzzy feeling that we were seeking. Our first encounter with Dr. McCarthy-Keith was awesome. She was very kind, emphatic, caring and thorough. She took her time to explain all of our options. I was referred to Doc by my gynecologist. She gave Doc a raving review. It took me two years to actually move forward and visit GRS because I had such a negative experience with a previous fertility clinic. Finally, at the tender age of 45, I took that step. I had some doubt before going in to speak to Doc, but after leaving the consultation, all doubt had gone out the window. I felt confident that I was going to have a baby of my very own. Here I am a few weeks from being 47 and 19 weeks pregnant! My due date is June 14th. This journey has been wonderful. Of course, I had a few bumps in the road and many questions. No matter how many questions I had, they never went unanswered. I will like to thank Dr. McCarthy-Keith and the entire GRS staff for such a pleasant and successful experience! God led me to GRS and for that I am forever grateful...
Dr. MK (McCarthy-Keith) was amazing to work with when we did our IVF. Her staff is also amazing. Unlike another center we tried, Dr. MK was with us EVERY step of the way. She is very personable, professional, and really cares about her patients. She even came to visit us when our baby girl was born. If you need a fertility doctor in the Atlanta area, she is hands down the best and truly a blessing from God!
My husband and I had been trying for over a year before we went to go see Dr. MK. After meeting her for the first time she made both of us feel really comfortable and explained everything to us in detail. She guided us to the best treatment option for us rather than wasting time doing clomid cycles or additional IUIs after our first IUI failed. After just doing a single IVF cycle we got pregnant after over 2 years of trying and I am now currently 17 weeks pregnant. Dr. MK and her staff including Rita, Cherie, Lisa, and Devon are all very sweet and helpful in answering any questions you may have. I would recommend Dr. MK and GRS to anyone that needs help in their journey to parenthood.
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.
