Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Levine "As a member of the Weill Cornell Medicine Ophthalmology team, I provide comprehensive eye care as well as sub-specialty care in ophthalmic plastic surgery.  My practice focuses on treating a wide range of ophthalmic conditions, including: cataracts, tearing, ocular trauma, eyelid abnormalities and cosmetic eyelid procedures.  Upon meeting you, my main goal is to discover your concerns and to address them to the best of my ability.  Communication is a top priority and I strive to make sure that all patients leave my office with a thorough understanding of their ocular health.  I feel fortunate to work at an eye center with a dedicated and compassionate staff, as well as incredible colleagues in all of the different ophthalmic sub-specialties.  I look forward to the opportunity to be a part of your medical team and to helping keep your eyes healthy for a lifetime."
