I was 43 years old when Dr. Greene performed my Tubal Reversal in 2008. He gave me a very good report on the outcome. Since then I have not gotten pregnant but I still have a lot of hope. I have been to an RE, both my husband and I have passed every test along the way and had two failed IUI's done just this year. I do not have the financial means to go further with IVF, in which case, even if I did the RE told me they would only use donor eggs and I would not do that. The RE told me I look good on paper but because of my age I probably cannot get pregnant. The only problem he said I have is not enough cervical fluid, that was after he put me on two round of clomid. Now that I caught you up on that I would just like to tell you that both the gynecologist who sent me to the RE and the RE had negative attitudes from day one! Why? Because of my age! I could feel it everytime I went into the office, nurses too. Todays attitudes seem to be if over 40, you're done being a mom. I say that and I understand statistics, I'm talking about attitudes. It has hurt me just as much as not getting pregnant. I made the decision to go to Dr. Greene after praying about it and just getting that right feeling. I have no regrets and am still very happy I had Dr. Greene perform my surgery. He never gave me this attitude and no one in your office did either. I was treated so warm in your office and I had a very good experience! Also the only thing positive the other Doctors had to say was your tubes look very good, he did a good job on your Tubal Reversal. This was after I got the test to check if my tubes are open, as they were trying to convince me the surgery probably didn't work and my tubes were probably blocked. I just keep praying and hope it will still happen someday. If not, it just isn't meant to be. Thank you Dr. Greene, you are a great Doctor and without you I wouldn't even have hope, not even a chance!

Our Policy on Testimonials
We do not ever release patient′s names. We feel you should have control over your medical decisions and information. We want you to know that we will never ask that of you. The tubal ligation reversal testimonials on our website are the words of the patients themselves we don′t change them except when they name their husband or something else that would give away their identity. In 32 years of surgery I have had a lot of patients that were kind enough to write a note of thanks and I never have had any message that was more than several sentences. People just don′t write long involved notes like I see on some websites.
