"Both my husband and I felt that Dr. Levens was one of the best doctors we have ever met. He was compassionate and upbeat about the process, and always took time to explain and answer any questions we had. When I called him for any concerns during the cycle, he was extremely prompt in returning the call and/or scheduling appointments.
Considering our experience at Shady Grove Fertility, I can honestly say that we both have never felt more at ease in a medical setting, and that's something special, because I am a bit of a nervous patient! Making the decision to move to donor eggs was not an easy one; that is why I am so grateful that we had the support we needed to make an educated decision that would ultimately lead to success. We are hoping that everything continues to go well with the next phase of our pregnancy!"
"My husband and I were very impressed with Dr. Levens and the way he treated us. He was extremely careful, approachable and knowledgeable. He offered us his contact information without hesitation. It is really refreshing to deal with a doctor that makes you feel like a patient (not a number) and that really cares about you and takes the time to listen to what the patient has to say. You seldom see that nowadays. We're glad we ended up having him to deal with our case (I had no preference of doctors when I first schedule my appointment)."
"On the day of the transfer, Dr. Levens was extremely kind, helpful, supportive and informative."
"Dr. Levens is very friendly and easy to talk to. I was happy that he and I are on the same page and the appointment went very smoothly."
"Although I have not yet started my process, Dr. Levens has the best bedside manner that I've ever come across. He showed that he really cared, he took his time explaining the procedure, answered all of my questions patiently and he called and emailed me right away when I had follow up questions."
