After a horrific experience with my doctor of ten years, I was referred to "the best doctor in New York", Dr. Al Sassoon. One month after our first visit, I was pregnant and Dr. Sassoon quickly became part of our growing family.

I had always heard that Dr. Sassoon was attentive, called to check in on his moms-to-be, etc. but even as I write this, I cannot begin to describe his high level of insight, integrity, compassion and involvement every step of the way. From our first appointment to the day I delivered, Dr. Sassoon was highly engaged. He called both myself and my husband regularly to check-in, gave me regular sonograms (and hugs) as well as other tests monitoring both my health and our little girl's and liaised with the hospital staff on my behalf.

When you deliver with Dr. Sassoon you will find that his reputation precedes him. He operates at such a high level and expects perfection from himself and every nurse, anesthesiologist, etc. around him. As a result, the actual delivery and recovery were a breeze (sorry moms!). My water broke at 3:30 in the morning and I was overwhelmed when Dr. Sassoon entered my hospital room with a smile by 4:00 am. Shortly thereafter, he delivered a perfectly healthy little girl and one day shy of three weeks later, I went on my first jog. Dr. Sassoon beautifully marries an inviting and comforting personality, with the intensity and skill that make him a phenomenal doctor.

My sister-in-law in Dallas and I were pregnant around the same time - her overall experience from start to finish was no where near mine. Dr. Sassoon is not just the best doctor in New York; he is the best doctor period. I delivered with him while living in Connecticut and based on my experience, would never trust anyone else with such an important responsibility. Wherever life takes us, Dr. Sassoon will deliver each of our children and forever be a part of our family.

Dear Dr. Sassoon, 
There are no words to express the gratitude we feel for your expert care. Your warm heart paired with your expert care-giving is a unique combination in the medical industry. You should be very proud, as you are certainly a leader in a very large pack. Truly without you, our lives and our family could be quite different. We are thankful every day for our three little blessings, Madeline, Anna and now George, and that you have been with us every step of the way. Much love.

We were referred to Dr. Sassoon during our first pregnancy when we were experiencing severe complications. It was a devastating time and we felt disregarded by the factory-like ob/gyn group we were using. Luckily, a family member immediately called Dr. Sassoon, who without hesitation brought us in for an exam. That very same day he reached out to his incredibly wide network and we had appointments with some of the best specialists in New York. We were finally being taking care of.

Dr. Sassoon helped us recover from that tragedy and we were so overjoyed to visit him again when we got pregnant for the second time. From the very beginning, we knew that Dr. Sassoon's experience, knowledge and compassion would guide us through this pregnancy. Little did we know that our faith would be tested so soon after our first pregnancy. During our initial exam, Dr. Sassoon detected that we were pregnant with twins that shared the same sac and placenta. Though it was too early to detect whether a membrane separated the twins, he thoroughly explained the situation and the risks. Recognizing that this was yet another complicated pregnancy, he nevertheless kept us calm and focused. Dr. Sassoon immediately referred us to a maternal fetal specialist for a sonography. The two would work in tandem to ensure that we were receiving the highest level of care and monitoring.

Happily during our first appointment with the maternal fetal specialist, the membrane separating the twins was detected. Dr. Sassoon knew as soon as we did because he made sure he was contacted immediately after the sonogram was concluded - he was genuinely happy for us.

Despite the bit of positive news, Dr. Sassoon was honest with us about the high risks associated with this pregnancy. He laid out a full program, made all of our appointments and set the "rules of the road" - he was going to do all he could to get us to a healthy delivery.

In the end, we made it to 35 weeks, 5 days, which is incredible for a twin gestation, and on November 27, 2013, Dr. Sassoon delivered our two beautiful healthy baby girls. Our whole family is forever grateful to him.
