Very sad to hear this news yesterday. We have had a long history with Shady Grove Fertility from 2003 to the present, first as Patients and then as their Video Producers and as a Designer of several of their Offices and Waiting areas and recently as Patients again. While Dr. Stillman has always been our main Doctor overseeing our treatment, Dr. Stephen Greenhouse was the Doctor that actually transferred the Embryo to my womb that ultimately became our daughter, Ever. He was a genuinely kind man with a great bedside manner. I'm sure he brought a lot of little babies into this World and we will personally be forever grateful to him. RIP Dr. Greenhouse and we send our sincere condolences to his Wife and Family.
It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the tragic passing of our colleague, Stephen Greenhouse, M.D. Steve died in an accident on Saturday, July 28. He is survived by his wife Robyn, and his three sons, Ryan, Tyler, and Dylan.
Steve will be remembered at SGF and in the Washington, D.C. medical community by the thousands of lives he touched in both small and large ways. His passion for medicine and for his patients was a driving force behind Steve’s professional life. His patients appreciated his expertise and loved him for his generosity of time and attention during a difficult period in their lives. His SGF family has known him as a kind and humorous leader, who always put the well-being of our patients and our staff first. He was a tireless supporter of our practice culture, demonstrating our commitment to patient care with words and actions. Behind the scenes, Steve helped to manage two of the most demanding aspects of our practice: maintaining a patient-friendly business office and risk management. He always resolved issues in these departments with fairness and grace.
On a personal level, Steve was a dedicated father, husband, son, and brother. He had many friends and was always ready to share a story from the last family bike trip or other vacation, or the latest book he read. Steve was also a quiet, but involved philanthropist, working to advance the causes he and his family valued.
Steve is dearly missed by his family, friends, colleagues, and patients. SGF will establish a memorial to Steve that serves our patients into the future.
For those patients under Steve’s care, please know that your treatment is our priority. Our physician team will be reviewing all current treatment cycles and we will make arrangements in the coming days for you to connect with another doctor of your choosing. Your medical care will not be compromised by this tragedy.
Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, July 31, 11:30 AM at Temple Beth Ami, 14330 Travilah Rd., Rockville, MD, with interment to follow at Garden of Remembrance, Clarksburg, MD.
Donations in his memory may be made to Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, www.crohnscolitisfoundation.org.
