Dr. Levine used Letrizole for me as I have PCOS. He initially started with a lower dosage of letrizole but when I did not ovulate he adjusted the dosage to 10 mg. My body did respond to the 10 mg of letrizole and I ovulated 2x from that. He preferred to start with letrizole as their are less side effects and less risk of multiples...Dr. Levine took the time to patiently explain all details of the procedure. His office is set up beautifully and makes you feel like you are visiting a spa- not like you are waiting in a gross doctors office. The staff is all super friendly and warm and helpful.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I didn't know the nurses very well. There was a PA at the clinic who was excellent and got back to me about all my questions. Her name is Alyson Butler
Describe your experience with Fertility Institute of New Jersey.
The only thing I found confusing was that when the nurses called back with results - they didnt always match what I had been expected to be told based on what the doctor told me. I found the clinic atmosphere to be super positive and helpful overall

Dr. Levine always asked about my family, my husband, my work, and made it a point to remember all the little details.... He was always kind and compassionate. I would go to him again and again. He was thorough and knowledgable.... The first two IUI's I used clomid, and then lectrozol because I did not react well with clomid.... The fresh embryo transfer was unsuccessful but my second frozen one was great. I was closely monitored. The first few weeks were spent ruling out genetics and other issues.

He [Dr. Levine] is very caring and makes you feel important. Came highly recommended from friends who have had successful pregnancies. He made an awkward situation with a gestational carrier much easier, which is not an easy thing to do. When we had a miscarriage he was very compassionate.... He is open to transferring 2 if need be which can be helpful to increase your odds of a successful pregnancy.... A few weeks of estrogen for my carrier and then the injectables.
