Please enjoy Kimberly and Dustin's story in Kimberly's own words . . .
At the age of 24 years old, after the birth of my second son, I had my tubes cut, tied, and burned. My boys' father and I divorced a few years later.
After remarrying, my husband and I discussed having a tubal reversal. He had no biological children but was wonderful with my boys. In order to see if this would be possible for us I had my medical records sent to Dr Levin.
After reviewing my records, his office contacted me and said I would be a good candidate for a Tubal Reversal.
We procrastinated for a few years and debated as to whether or not we wanted to go through with the surgery. It wasn't definite that we would be able to conceive and this was a major surgery to consider. We would be starting over...my two boys were 12 and 9 years old at this time.
We finally decided to go through with the process. There was no debate as to which Doctor we wanted to use. I had worked at an airport in Kentucky for 12 years and met women who had flown to KY for their reversal with Dr Levin. I heard nothing but the best about him and his staff. We did not even consider other Dr's.
We had a consultation with Dr Levin over the telephone, paid for the surgery, and had it scheduled for a month after our consultation.
I had my reversal surgery at the age of 33 on October 23, 2014. We loved Dr Levin and his staff. The entire process, from the hotel stay to the hospital and surgery was wonderful.
We waited the entire 6 weeks that Dr Levin recommended before we tried to conceive. We followed all of his orders.
When trying to conceive I only used Ovulation Tests and pre-seed. We conceived in June of 2015. Dr Levin was there to support us the entire way through phone calls, emails, orders for blood work, and everything we needed.
After much anticipation and excitement, we welcomed our little miracle to our family in March 2016. Another beautiful baby boy!!
We could not be more appreciative to Dr Levin for making this possible...He will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Kimberly and Dusty Cool
