Excerpts from letters sent to Dr. Levi…
Hearing the diagnosis of infertility is not easy. When my husband and I walked into Dr. Levi’s office for our initial consult, I was terrified. But I left feeling excited, and hopeful. I knew that Dr. Levi was going to do everything in his power make me a family. I am an IVF patient, but it’s important to note that I’m not pregnant (yet!) This is precisely why I felt that it was so important to write this reference, now, before I even get pregnant. I truly believe in Dr. Levi and his practice, and I have received the best medical care of my entire life, from Park Avenue Fertility and Reproductive Medicine. He is detail oriented, and managed and organized my overall healthcare from head to toe to make sure that I was healthy and ready for fertility treatments. Dr. Levi utilizes the most advanced technologies in reproductive medicine that are available to date. He made me feel assured and comfortable during what would have otherwise been, a very scary time in my life. Very simply, he took care of me.
When you embark on a fertility program, you need to really love the office staff because you’ll be spending a lot of time with them. By my second visit, the front desk staff knew my name and greeted me with a smile. I can’t tell you what it feels like to have an entire team of incredible people who are fighting for me to conceive, and carry, my future baby. What does it take to make a baby through IVF? A skilled board certified MD in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, an embryologist, nurse practitioner, nurse, medical assistants and administrative staff. The patient coordinator played an integral part in my care, educating me about how my insurance works, and handling authorizations. I couldn’t have taken my IVF journey without Dr. Levi, Christina, Angela, Theresa, Aleyda, Mary Lou, Lisa, and Ann. I am forever grateful to each and everyone one of them. If you’re facing infertility and want to receive cutting edge medical treatment in a caring, nurturing, and supportive environment, you need to visit Park Avenue Fertility and Reproductive Medicine.

I am so thankful that my friend referred me to you! You are truly one of the best doctors I’ve ever had! Throughout this whole experience, as difficult as it was at times, you were wonderful! Not only were you patient, thorough and genuinely concerned, you were also encouraging, thoughtful and you even returned all my phone calls! What doctor does that anymore?! I am truly impressed with you and the way you run your practice. There should be more doctors like you! I would refer you without hesitation! Thank you so much for all you have done. You’ve assisted in making our dream a reality.

I am sure you get a lot of these cards, but I couldn’t leave for the last time without telling you how grateful I am. It must be very fulfilling to know you give people the miracle of a child, something that without you, many might not get to experience. For my husband and I, you have given us the ultimate gift. I will always be truly grateful for that. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thanks for helping us become a family this year!
I wanted to take the time to write to you and let you know how much I appreciate the phenomenal care that I received at Park Avenue Fertility. It is important, not only as a patient but also as a healthcare worker myself, not to allow this exceptional care to be taken for granted.
As you are aware, the process of infertility testing, treatments and visits can take a toll both emotionally and physically. You and your wonderful staff made this process more than pleasant. I actually looked forward to office visits because I felt that I had established genuine relationships with each of you.
My husband and I felt a true connection with each of you that allowed for an increased comfort level throughout this trying process. This extent of care far exceeded our expectations and we will be forever grateful that we were recommended to your center. Although we are sad to have to “move on”, it is because of all of your hard work and dedication that we are able to do successfully.
Please share this letter with everyone who will read it! I want it known that I have the best doctor, nurses and medical staff in the world! Thank you again for a wonderful experience. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. We will keep you all posted on the rest of the story…..

We are overjoyed to introduce you to the newest member of our family. We are all doing wonderfully and feel so very blessed to have her in our lives. When I look back on our struggle to conceive I can remember the many times we questioned whether or not to continue with treatment and the doubts that lingered. But thanks to you and your wonderful staff it did happen for us! I can honestly say, without any reservations, that we made the right choices which started with choosing the right team.
We cannot thank you enough for the attention, care and support you provided to us. You and your team consistently delivered services in a manner that was friendly, supportive and respectful of our choices. Your responsiveness and sensitivity to our needs was amazing, I wish every doctor applied the same style to their patient care. I always felt that I was being treated as an individual and that you truly cared about our success. This helped tremendously during a most trying time in our lives.
We are contemplating the possibility of a third child and have an appointment to see you in a couple of weeks! We will have the baby in tow and look forward to seeing you then. Once again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for our little miracle. We never could have done it without you!
We cannot even thank you enough for the part you helped with in the creation of our beautiful daughter. Despite all of your medical expertise, we were more pleased with your bedside manner and truly consider you to be our friend. We hope to keep in contact with you over the years, so you can watch our daughter grow along with us and know that we will always consider you one of her “angels”.
Thank you again, our baby boy is perfect – we are so in love with him. Dreams do come true!

All I can say is “wow”! It’s all still a bit overwhelming. We are just so thrilled to finally be pregnant! It was a long journey that ironically began and ended with you. I do believe it was fate! Thank you so much for your care and support and candor. My husband and I are both glad that we are in your care. Both you and your staff have been a pleasure to work with. I appreciate the hospitality, flexibility and sensitivity you all offered in working with me. I cannot adequately express our gratitude for your helping to make it happen. It’s a dream come true!
We wanted to let you know that our son was born in November and he is absolutely perfect. We could not have asked for a more wonderful baby. For that and many other reasons, we are grateful. Without you, we know we wouldn’t be where we are now. Words cannot express how truly blessed we are and we thank you very much for all you did to make our dream of having a baby come true. Few other doctors would have cared for us as you did and we want you to know how much that meant and still means to us. Each day with our son is a miracle. We hope to add to our family some day and we know who can help us – so we’ll see you then!
We can’t thank you enough for helping to make this a very exciting year for us. We are expecting our baby boy in just a couple of months, which I guess you know as you were there. Thanks for everything!
I just wanted to write and say thank you for all that you did for me over these last months. It was so wonderful of you to take the time that you did to keep me informed and at ease during the entire process. It is a true rarity to find a doctor who handles his patients with such kindness, care and concern….and for that, I am truly grateful.
Finally! Our baby boy arrived last month at 8lbs 1 oz. Can’t thank you enough for your help with this little bundle!
Doctor, you are a “superman”. Thank you.
We welcomed our little girl into the world. Thank you so much for being so approachable and for making her possible – she is a dream come true.
Thank you for making our dreams come true!
We are so lucky to have such an amazing and caring doctor supporting us through this difficult time! We might just have to name first little one Andy!

I just hung up the phone from our discussion and I want you to know how much we appreciate you. You are an excellent Doctor and a truly wonderful person. Your compassion and understanding is priceless. Thank you for getting involved in the issue today regarding our donor. Could you please let her know how grateful that I am to her and that I am thinking about her constantly. Even although I have not met her, I am so touched by her willingness to give us this chance for parenthood.
Our family will be forever grateful – first to God, then, to you! “John” and “Mary” (names withheld) are our daughter and son-in-law. After other doctors and four devastating failed IVF cycles, they finally conceived. Our beautiful, perfect grandson arrived due to your tremendous knowledge and amazing skill, all of our lives have been forever changed. Please know how much you mean to our family.

I have struggled with how to say thank you for giving us the gift of life. My husband and I are on top of the world and I cannot believe that my dream of motherhood is coming true! You are a brilliant doctor, but more importantly you are a genuinely caring and compassionate person. Priceless. We will be forever grateful to you and your staff and we will keep in touch. I need a picture of you and our baby!
A.M., of Madison
We will always be grateful to you for helping us to create our family. We can’t say enough wonderful things about you. You’re a truly gifted doctor whose qualities as a human being really shine through. We always felt your kindness, compassion, and sincerity. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
J.P., of Fairfield
I appreciate all you and your staff did to help us through the difficult hump in our lives. I have sung your praises to anyone I know who was in our situation….
V.B., of Stratford
“Thank you” doesn’t seem strong enough to let you and your staff know how much I appreciate what you all do. The entire office has been so warm and caring during this stressful time of trying to conceive. I am thrilled to be pregnant but sorry to not be coming back to this office!
S.S., of Monroe
Thank you to all of the friendly faces at Park Avenue Fertility and especially to you Dr. Levi for making our dreams come true. With the kindness, respect and professionalism of everyone at this office, you turned our difficult situation into hope and joy. Our gratitude to all of you is endless.
L.D., of Milford
Thank you for all your care, concern and expertise during our fertility treatments. Without you we wouldn’t be celebrating our new family.
