Please enjoy Leslie and Tim's story in Leslie's own words . . .
Our testimonial for Dr. Levin starts off similiar to other testimonials. Both Tim and I had made bad choices and married the wrong people the first time. Although my marriage had resulted in two beautiful girls, I had a tubal ligation after my second daughter as I knew my marriage wasn't what I had wanted and didn't want any other children to be brought into that relationship. Tim and his first wife did not have any children together.
After my divorce I swore to my girlfriends that I was never going to get married again. I knew I had two daughters to raise and after the awful experience I had with the first marriage, I was determined I would not put myself or my girls through that again. Of course when you say the words NEVER, they come back to haunt you! After Tim and I went on our first date we knew this relationship was different!
In early 2006, knowing we were going to get married we began investigating the possibility of having another baby and our options. After careful consideration and under the advisement of my doctor we decided that attempting a tubal ligation reversal was my best option. I found several doctors on line and began contacting them to find out more information. Two of the physician's had someone from their staff contact me after I had left a message requesting more information. Dr. Levin, however, called me personally the morning after I had left the message with his office requesting more information. I was so very impressed that the doctor himself had called me and took time to answer all of my questions; I did not feel rushed or that he had anything else do to but to answer any questions I had. I was so impressed I told Tim we had to go to Kentucky to have the procedure done, I didn't want anyone else to perform the reversal.
So, in August 2006 we set off for a road trip to Kentucky! I was again equally impressed the morning of the procedure, not only with the Dr. Levin and his bedside manner, but the staff at the hospital was wonderful too. After the procedure was completed, Dr. Levin told us that it had been successful but we had to wait for six weeks to start our baby dance to be sure everything had healed up properly. What a long six weeks! About 12 weeks after the surgery I found out that I was pregnant; we were elated. That elation turned to terrible sadness when we found out that I had miscarried the baby. When I emailed Dr. Levin to tell him the terrible news, he again called me immediately to comfort me and tell us to try again when it was safe. Dr. Levin called me before my regular physician had even called me, and Dr. Levin was on vacation at the time!
About 4 months later we found out that I was pregnant again. Of course we were cautiously happy, but after a very smooth pregnancy, on December 13, 2007 I have birth to a very heathy daughter, Olivia Grace.
Without Dr. Levin's help, little Livi wouldn't have been possible. We are so thankful to Dr. Levin. If you or anyone you know is considering a tubal ligation reversal, I would whole heartedly recommend Dr. Levin.
