My daughter in law saw Dr Franklin at Roxborough Memorial Hospital last night. She came in with sudden sharp abdominal pain, he ordered no tests, sent her home with narcotics. 6 hours later she had emergency surgery at St Mary’s on a very large mass.

I was examined by 7 different drs in a six month period before going to see Dr. Levin. The first 7 had no clue why I could hardley walk. Dr. Levin diagnosed the issue in 15 minutes. Within a months time I was able to walk without a cane . Great Doctor..

I have had issues with my back for many years and got the privilege of getting to see Dr. Levin when he was at the Towanda Memorial Hospital. He fixed the issues with my back and I was perfect for many years. He is the greatest doctor I have ever seen in my 45 years of life.

I have never come to trust a Doctor as much as Bruce Levin. He knew exactly what to do for my lumbar disk herniations and he fixed me up! He is a compassionate expert healer with a light-hearted and loving manner.

This doctor has never fully addressed my major health issues; not even prescribing the proper medication according to general medical standards. I leave the office every visit very, very upset. Nice lady but just has no empathy.
