I had gone to Dr. Gad Lavy 23 yrs ago. He was my last hope to become a mom, which is what I had been trying to do for 12 + yrs. I became pregnant the very first time. Dr. Lavy and his whole staff were so wonderful and understanding, kind and gentle. This past week my beautiful son has turned 23. Thank you so very much to such a wonderful and caring doctor to help my dream come true. Amanda Floyd/ Buffalo, NY
