What Patients Are Saying About Dr. Levine
“Dr. Levine was everything you hope a doctor to be and more. He’s super attentive, clear and direct while having a positive perspective and friendly demeanor. He made me feel that my journey to pregnancy was just as important to him as it was to me. Currently pregnant after one IVF transfer, I’m so happy that we switched from another facility to CCRM. We highly recommend CCRM and its staff…particularly Dr. Levine and cannot wait for the arrival of our baby girl.”
“CCRM NY, and Dr. Levine, in particular, have changed the way I think about my healthcare in general, and I will truly never be the same. The bar is permanently raised! He is the anti-paternalistic doctor to such an extent that I never could have imagined that a doctor-patient relationship could be this way. He was truly my advocate and we were partnered in my care. I felt empowered and informed throughout the process. Everything, absolutely everything, was customized to me as an individual human, from the protocols to the way we made decisions about my care. He even considered psychological and emotional effects of certain decisions, and not just treatment by the numbers and the probabilities. There was no detail that went unnoticed to him, and his nuanced care is truly a gift.”
“We can’t thank CCRM and Dr. Levine enough for their care, guidance and support! From the minute you walk into CCRM you are met with staff that knows you by name and showcases genuine care for your physical and emotional well-being. Dr. Levine was a breath of fresh air. His positivity and energy is off the charts. We walked into CCRM full of anxiety; however, after every appointment, we left feeling confident, calm and assured. Most importantly, he took the time to get to know my husband and I, what our dreams were as well as what kept us up at night worried. He understood our case (from a medical and emotional perspective) and based off of this was not fast to push us to treatment (via medicine / or invasive procedure). While other practices may quickly lead you to treatments, Dr. Levine did not think it was necessary for us. Instead, he worked with us to come up with a game plan that we were comfortable with. You can really ask Dr. Levine any question. No question is off limits. He answers everything with a warm smile and reassurance. Dr. Levine is willing to accommodate tough schedules taking some of the stress out of scheduling appointments.”
“Choosing Dr. Levine to help us through our challenging fertility journey was one of the best decisions we ever made. In addition to having a calming and hopeful bedside manner, Dr. Levine is at the forefront of his field and unafraid to pursue treatments that may not be obvious, which ultimately led to the birth of our beautiful and healthy son. Often (and certainly in our case) infertility is not linear and a treatment that may work well one cycle may fail the next. Having a patient, trustworthy, and incredibly understanding physician like Dr. Levine who is unafraid to try several approaches is invaluable. Where other doctors would have given up on us, Dr. Levine, his partners and the wonderful staff at CCRM continued to devote their maximum efforts to giving us a child. We are forever grateful.”
