Dear Dr. Levin, I just wanted to take a moment to Thank YOU for helping me conceive my miracle baby girl. Her name is Samantha Lauren Jolly and she was born on 04/21/2006. Which is 1 year and a month after you performed my tubal reversal surgery.
When I came to you, I was very anxious and nervous about my surgery, but you and your staff helped to make me feel hope and comfort. I had searched for many months and interviewed 4 Doctors before realizing that you were THE ONE. You said you performed the surgery with out using a stent and also would sew more than just one layer of the tubes back together- all that with an option to redo the surgery with only the professional fee should that be necessary. Well if that doesn't scream confidence in what you do, then I don't know what does...
Anyway. according to my tubal ligation operative report, the Dr. had only removed 0.6cm and 0.8cm which was very positive news. However, during the reversal surgery, you noticed there was more damage to the tubes and had to remove more than I had expected. When it was all said and done, I had 5.0cm and 5.5cm and boy, did I feel discouraged once again. You reassured me (many, many, many times) that that was enough to conceive. Well, about 4 months later we found out we were pregnant and just sooo very excited and thankful, and greatful!
She is just a blessing and I just can't thank you enough. I am so glad we found you! All The Best to YOU and your STAFF.

On August 2, 2006 @ 4:03 am, our family was blessed with a 7 pound 4 oz. , beautiful, baby boy!
We tried for nine years to have a baby. I had to have my tubes tied for certain reasons and did not think I would ever be able to have them reversed. Then, in 2001 I found Dr. Levin online and researched my possibilities and costs. Then, because of finances, years went by, decreasing my chances of having another baby. My husband and I desperately wanted to have a child together. He is a wonderful step-father of two girls, but we desired a boy. A son to share together and with our girls. Finally, five years later and a lot of patience, we scheduled our surgery.
I met Dr. Levin and had my surgery in June of 2005. His method left minimal scarring. He answered all my phone calls after surgery , even all my little concerns and worries. He gave me a 50/50 chance of becoming pregnant within one year. Right!!!!!! We found out in December that I was five weeks pregnant. It only took us four months to conceive.
Finally, almost one year to the date of my surgery, I delivered our dream!!!

I had my Tubal reversal on June 7th 2004. My recovery was fairly painless but the three week wait nearly drove me crazy. We became pregnant in the first month of trying but sadly I miscarried in my sixth week. Dr. Levin reassured me that everything was OK and that I would become pregnant with a healthy baby. A full nine months later I finally became pregnant again. Unfortunately I had another miscarriage but Dr. Levin was there for me again. His words of inspiration really helped me get through it.
Dr. Levin put me on progesterone and told us to wait two cycles before trying again. We were going to wait but one spontaneous and passionate night was all it took to get me pregnant again. I couldn't believe it, when my cycle didn't show up my sister urged me to test and what do you know I was pregnant. Excited and scared at the same time I called Dr. Levin to have the blood work done.
Everything was great and on January 17th 2006 I had my miracle baby; Emalee Elizabeth McDermott. I couldn't of done this without Dr. Levin's great work. My husband says he would pay 3 times the amount that we paid to get this sweetheart that we have.
THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH Dr. Levin for all that you do!!!!!!!!
