    My sister had a brain aneurysm and was transferred to 3 different hospitals because the neurosurgeon at each hospital could not help her or had terrible diagnosis. We were blessed she was transferred in the care of Dr. Levy. There were over 30 family members asking questions and Dr. Levy was extremely patient and calm and he never rushed us. He had amazing bed side manners and put us all at ease. He is not only an amazing Dr but an extraordinary human being.

    Hands down the BEST doctor that has ever walked on the face of this earth!!! DR. LEVY is like NO other. He always made my husband and I feel at ease. It's in his nature to be kind, supportive, helpful, and reassuring. At the time, I lived in Burbank, CA. and he'd drive half way to meet with my Husband and I.-Aneheim, CA. And he called regularly to see how I was doing. I mean, who does that?! Only Dr. Levy!!! I have the utmost and profound respect for Dr. Levy and his team.

    A "Meet & Greet" consult is most important to both patient and physician. Dr. Levy listens to your concerns and answers all your questions without making you feel rushed. He makes you feel like a person instead of a object. Dr. Levy kept family informed through out my husbands surgery and recovery. Along with follow-up care. He is concerned with your physical as well as your mental health.
