I am just now getting around to writing my testimonial. Pretty sad - in a year I can't find the time to sit down and do it!...lol.....anyways - I wanted to send it to you because we are so thankful for you and the gift of our son Ayden and new baby that is on the way! Thank you just doesn't seem to be enough! Hopefully you will use my testimonial - and through that others will know that they are choosing the very best!!
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!! Love, Lynsi and Kevin O'Dell
My husband and I were married young ( 17 & 19 ) and had our daughter shortly after. By the time I was 22 we had 3 children. Our families pressured us into doing something permanent - not really what we wanted but knew we should do something more reliable. We love our children more than life and have had so much fun with them, but we weren't ready to expand anytime soon.
Soon after that,we regreted the decision. It took us 4 years to decide it was a mistake. We felt like someone was missing! What an aching feeling. We were also more financially set and couldn't wait to start looking for hope!
I went to some local Doctors in town. There isn't a lot of support for Tubal Reversals. They steered us in the direction of IVF. Which can be more costly and the price of the Tubal Reversal locally was double what Dr. Levin charged, without any continuing care or "extras" that shows he truly cares about his patients! We found Dr. Levin's website and sent for information right away!
I sent my history over via fax and was expecting a reply back through email or maybe mail, but to my surprise, he called me personally to tell me he thought I would be a great candidate for the surgery! We were on cloud nine!
I had my consultation in May of 2005. Then scheduled the surgery soon after. My surgery was scheduled for June 14, 2005. Though our familes weren't very supportive of the surgery, my Mom actually came with me because my husband could not get time off from work. After the surgery, Dr. Levin called him personally to tell him it was a success and that my tubes went back together perfectly. He said it was like it was just meant to be!
Luckily we didn't have a 6 week wait restriction and could start trying to conceive right away! I got my first + HPT on Aug 13, 2005 ( 2 cycles after!) and delivered our son Ayden Gabriel on April 12, 2006.
Our family is so blessed and can not imagine our lives without Ayden, or any of our other children. God gave Dr. Levin a very precious gift and he shares it with others so that their lives maybe enriched as parents. I highly reccommend him and have to several people. In fact, any time someone at my OB/GYN's office inquires about a reversal, they are referred to me and I highly suggest they use Dr. Levin!
We are expeting TR baby #2 now and are just as thrilled now as we were last year. Although, I do think this will be the last one...
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts, Dr. Levin. All of our children are miracles, but you take something broken and tarnished and make it whole again....just like our hearts! We are so blessed!
Much love,
Kevin and Lynsi O'Dell & Madison, Luke, Dylan and Ayden ( and ??)
