Today I visited the office ,and had a chance to meet Dr. Levy's PA. The PA, Kevin was very nice, gentle and informative. He explained my condition on a level I can understand. Good to have a nice doctor that has good bedside manner.

My experience with Dr Levy and his wonderful PA and other staff members has been nothing short of pure joy. Dr Levy explained all the points of interest regarding removal of a cyst from my right knee cap. His assistant PA, Kevin was very professional and friendly; the entire staff members are professional and friendly. I was very satisfied with the medical services that received at Dr Levy's office in Milburn.

Dr. Levy repaired a completely torn rotator cuff. I am seven months post-op and am feeling great. I flew my cousin in from S. America for a torn ankle cartilage and he is returning pain free. Dr. Levy is the only surgeon that has the trust of my family and I. Highest accolades Doc and thank you!

I have had a really good experience with Dr. Andy Levy! I have had many knee injuries and no other doctor took the time to really find the issue of the problem, rather than deside to out me u set tre knife right away! He is one of the most educated people I know and doing all kind of research to help people! I am greatful to know him and will trust him with my health before anybody else! He was voted one of the best 100 doctors in New York.... That speaks for itself! Thank you Dr. Andrew Levy!

very patient and complete. went out of his way to help.
in Brooklyn, New York |
Dr. Levy is far more than an excellent surgeon though when I needed my knee surgery that was my only criteria. Not only did his work heal me but his kind bedside manner, attentiveness, and the clarity with which he spoke soothed me. Having been a dancer my biggest fear was never being able to dance again so I had been very fearful of surgery, but after meeting dr levy o knew he was the only surgeon for me. I am ever grateful and could not recommend him more.

Dr. Levy was professional, thorough, and took great care of me and me entire family throughout the process. I highly recommend him!

Dr Levy is a brilliant orthopedic surgeon! There is nothing scarier as an athlete than having a potentially career ending injury. Dr Levy not only put all those fears to rest but most importantly he got me back in the game, and very quickly! I always recommend my friends to him and now I recommend him to all of you reading this as well. If you want results with minimally invasive surgery then Dr Levy is your man.

My name is Curtis Cunz. Im a semi professional rugby league player and have been selected to the USA Tomahawk more times than anyone in history. This could not and would not have been physically possible if it wasn't for the work of Dr. Andrew Levy over my 12+ year career. Ive had 4 procedures done. In 1 incident I tore my right meniscus and acl. Normally, it would have taken 7 8 or 9 months to get back to playing form... I was back in just 5 and starting for my team and not missing 1 USA game.
in Morristown, NJ |
As an athlete, I have had my share of orthopedic injuries and have been mislead and told what I wanted to hear followed by less then ideal surgical experiences. What a pleasure to have a straight forward doctor that did not sugarcoat but explained the pros and cons of each option. This was followed by an excellent surgical experience of a complex revision shoulder surgery and a remarkable recovery....
