This thank you is very late, but I want to thank all of you for the great care I had there and how friendly everyone was. A great big thank you to Dr. Greene for making my dream come true. I wan to send in my testimony so other women will know there is help out there. Do not give up. So here it is. I am 34 years old and had my tubes tied when I was 22, and a mother to two little girls. After being married for many years I got a divorce. Then at the age of 30 I met my soul mate and got married a year later. This is the man I know GOD had chosen for me. I have two beautiful daughters and he has two great sons. A few times after my first marriage I thought about not being able to have more children but after meeting Clint and falling in love all I wanted, all I could think about was having a baby. He wanted it as much as I did. So I talked with my doctor and he said I had two choices, one IVF and two have a reversal. We had the money, but for only one round of IVF. The research we did said the chances of becoming pregnant were very slim. The first try with IVF was not good. So we thought we would do the reversal and be able to try as many times as it takes for less money. We went on line and found Lakeshore Surgical Center, and Dr. Greene. I could not stop reading other womens testimonies and looking at all the baby pictures. After talking with several other doctors we made the choice to go with Dr. Greene. In October 2005 I had a tubal ligation reversal; 12 years after my tubes were tied. Dr. Greene and the whole staff were great. They took wonderful care of me, and Dr. Greene fixed my tubes. Then he told me everything I needed to know and do to get pregnant. Do what he says, he knows what he was talking about. In February 2006 I took a home pregnancy test it was positive. We were so happy, but not for long, our worst nightmare had come true. It was an Ectopic Pregnancy in my right fallopian tube. To make thins worse my tube ruptured and I lost my whole right tube. I went online and could not find anything where a woman had a tubal reversal loses one of her tubes and gets pregnant. I was so upset and very depressed. I called lakeshore and they told me not to give up that it could still happen, I just may take a little longer. They gave me the hope that I needed. In December of 2006 my period was late and I took a pregnancy test again, and it was positive. My husband and I were so scared it was another ectopic pregnancy, I only had one tube left and if I lost it we would lose or dream of having a baby. But I am very happy to tell you it was not in my tube. It was a normal pregnancy and on July 20, 2007 I gave birth to the most beautiful baby boy a mother could ask for. I thank God every day for my son and Dr. Greene. I truly was touched by an angel. If there are any women out here and you have only one tube and you are thinking want or can not have a baby you are wrong; with Dr. Greene as your doctor one tube is all you will need. I am holding proof of that in my arms right now. Again, thank you to Dr. Greene and the Lakeshore Surgical Center staff. Dr. Greene if it was not for you my son would not be here there are no words I can think of to express how grateful I am to you.

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.
