Levica Narine, MD, FACOG places high value on face-to-face time with those she treats at Kofinas Fertility Group in New York. As an experienced OBGYN, Dr. Narine has solved a wide range of fertility and reproductive problems with many different types of people. Each challenge motivates her to do better, and every experience she has inspires greater passion for her work.
“There really is no greater satisfaction than helping someone start a family who thought it was impossible. And that satisfaction is the greatest motivator you could ask for. Fertility care is all about building relationships, and while I did a lot of research in college, I chose to become a doctor because I enjoy interacting with my patients.
“In particular, I am able to relate to and communicate with women very well. I come from a family of strong women, and I understand that listening and discussing the feelings that you’re experiencing — whether you’re angry or sad or hopeless — is the key to overcoming your struggle and understanding that everything will be okay. Our team here at Kofinas Fertility Group will do absolutely everything we can to help, and building your trust is the first and most important step toward your success.
“My interest in relating to and communicating with people exceeds my professional life. I’m big on travelling all around the world and have visited Tibet, Thailand, Europe, Peru and many other places. In each place I visit, I learn so much about so many different types of people. And the empathy that extends from those experiences comes out every day when I’m caring for my patients.”
