Review of Dr. Levine

- |

Dr. Levine is thoughtful, sensitive and caring, and the surgery on my shoulder was a complete success. I hope I don't need to, but if i ever need orthopedic surgery again, Dr. Levine will be the first person I see. I'm 75, but I feel as if my post-op progress was that of a much younger man.

Review of Dr. Shah

- |

Excellent physician. I did a lot of research before selecting a surgeon for my hip and Dr. Shah is top notch. He answered all my questions. The surgery was quick and the recovery. was simple. I walked ten blocks to lunch (with a walker) three days after my surgery (probably not recommended, but no issue at all). Within two weeks I was basically back to normal (still doing physical therapy), and was cleared to drive (right hip). My physical therapist mentioned my scar as being the smallest she has seen - it's quite nice. Very well done. He is an excellent surgeon.

Review of Dr. Levine

- in far rockaway, NY |

Dr. William levine is a wonderfully talented surgeon. he repaired my rotator cuff, three of my tendons in my right shoulder were torn. i selected dr levine because of his reputation and being listed as a top othopedic sergeon. he was very courteous and answered all my questions patiently. he showed me on my MRI exactly why i cound not raise my arms more than waist high. the surgery went well and the recovery was easier that expected. i can now raise my arm all the way up. I would encourage anyone who needs rotater cuff repair surgery to use Dr. Levine. I can't thank him enough.

Review of Dr. Levine

- in New York, NY |

I had arthroscopic surgery for a torn meniscus, and 2 months later I'm on track to a full recovery. I saw Dr. Levine twice - once after an xray and MRI confirmed a torn meniscus and once immediately before surgery. He's all about efficiency; not a chatty, touchy feely type, but this suited me just fine. Also impressive: the entire orthopedic team around him (a cast of thousands) and the Columbia hospital facilities. This is a highly professional, efficient, and competent group; they're also nice! I recommend Dr. Levine and his team completely.

Review of Dr. Shah

-Port Monmouth |

Dr. Shah replaced my right knee on 6/11/19 at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. I was in and out the same day! I walked a few hours after surgery and, upon leaving, was able to access our car with no issues at all. Dr. Shah, and his team, have a splendid, pre, during and post operative plan that allows for a seamless transition to in-home therapy and, eventually, out-patient rehab. They do everything. All the patient needs to do is focus on following the guidelines in the manual and dedicate themselves to the exercises. I can not recommend Dr. Shah highly enough.

Review of Dr. Levine

- in Ridgewood, NJ |

Not only am I likely to continue to recommend Dr. Levine, I already have. He also became known to me through a referral from a friend, and my friend's return to a very active lifestyle that includes sailing and drumming was a good enough recommendation for me!

Review of Dr. Redler

- in NY, NY |

The reviews are accurate. Dr. Redler is and was excellent. While the physical ailment was, in the end, a mild one, nevertheless, she was marvelously clear, asked excellent questions, listened carefully, and took time (the right amount, not excessive, not rushed) to really describe the physical mechanics so as to enable us to understand exactly what was going on. Highly recommended.

Review of Dr. Shah

- in NY |

After a disastrous experience with a 2015 total right hip replacement, I was desperate to find a top-tier orthopedic surgeon who specialized in revisions. My femur had been cracked and half of the prosthesis failed to knit to the bone, leaving me with a permanent limp, instability, and 24/7 pain. I called a college friend in the orthopedic field, told him my story, and asked him to find a NY-metro-area surgeon to "save my life." And that's exactly what Dr. Shah did! He is an amazing surgeon (a miracle worker, from my point of view) and a really great person. I cannot recommend Dr. Shah (and Laura, his terrific PA) highly enough!
