Dr. Levine is an excellent doctor and an expert in his field. But, most importantly, he is an amazingly caring human being. The first time I came to his office, he personally came out into the waiting room to greet me and bring me in for the consultation. I never experienced anything like that before, and I've seen more than my fair share of doctors. At that moment I already had a good feeling that I was in the right place. Dr. Levine and his staff are simply the best. After four unsuccessful IVFs I had at other clinics, dr. Levine was able to help me get pregnant on the second IUI! I felt that very time he gave me an ultrasound to check for the next pregnancy milestone, he was almost holding his breath, until he saw what he was looking for. Then, with a huge smile on hismface, he would tell me that everything was great! Dr. Levine raally made me feel like I was his only patient and that he truly and sincerely wanted me to succeed. I wish he could be my obgyn, my dermatologist, cardiologists, dentist etc. A doctor like this is really hard to find and I feel so lucky. My only regret is that I didn't some to him sooner. My advice to anyone looking for an RE is to not get carried away with the success rate published on various websites. They are just statistics which depend on so many different variables and not everyone is clearly reporting them on their website. I got fooled into thinking that all I needed was a clinic with great success rates not realizing that a part of the reason why this particular big infertility clinic had such great success rate was because they refused to do day 3 embryo transfers. I now know that while it's important to find an infertility expert, it is even more important to have a doctor who cares for you as an individual, not just numbers and statistics. Fighting infertility is not only physically challenging, but it's also emotionally draining. So,having a doctor who cares can make all the difference in the world. For me it did. I can never thank dr. Levine and his amazing staff enough for helping me get pregnant.

My husband and I needed IVF and we met with doctors in 6 different fertility centers in Manhattan and NJ. When we met Dr. Zalman Levine, we knew we had found the right doctor, He spent more than an hour with us and took the time to talk to us and review the thick stack of records we brought, He was the first doctor who made us feel like more than a number in an IVF factory. Dr. Levine is an expert in IVF and he and his lab treated us with all the scientific techniques that the big clinics do, but he and his staff cared about us as people and treated us with kindness and warmth... and somehow, even though he has a full waiting room, Dr. Levine made us feel like we were his most important patients. I don't know how he does it, but he does it. We ended up doing IVF with PGD. We had 1 normal embryo and got pregnant. We were so disappointed that only 1 of our embryos was normal, but Dr. Levine kept on stressing the positive and saying all you need is one, stay focused and stay positive. AND HE WAS RIGHT. We feel so lucky to have met Dr. Levine and we credit him and his staff with making our dreams come true. It sounds funny to say, but now that I have been seeing my OB for a few months we miss those early mornings at Dr. Levine's office! We can't wait to visit him soon with our baby. Thank you Dr. Levine and thank you to all the nurses and receptionists of the Fertility Institute!

I have never met a doctor like Dr. Levine. He is scary smart with an amazing memory and most importantly he is a really good listener and really cares. He picked up on issues that previous doctors didn't figure out and because of him I am expecting my first child. My husband and I have been waiting, hoping, praying for this pregnancy for 5 years and it's because of Dr. Levine and his amazing staff that our whole life has changed. Thank you, thank you, you will forever be in our hearts.

I was so happy when I met Dr. Levine, as he is an expert in reproductive endocrinology & infertility, but more importantly he cared for me as a person, not just a patient. He is very knowledgeable, even with my complex medical history, & he was with me and my husband every step of the way - he even called me after my procedures to see how I was recovering! You get individualized attention from the moment you walk in the office & you feel part of the FINJNY family. I can't recommend him enough!

Dr. Levine and his staff were truly essential in ensuring my procedures and medical plan towards pregnancy were met in all ways necessary. From day one I felt at ease and in good hands. They helped me financially be able to afford the high cost of paying out of pocket which I believe truly effected my success. They provided me with emotional support and always made my visits super pleasant and while it's so hard to get up at 6 am to go to any Doctor - I felt good and excited to go to Dr. Levine! I wouldn't have gone anywhere else. I am so happy I chose him and his amazing team!
