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.
