We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

I have seen him several times as I have chronic issues with polyps. I trust him and the protocols we have followed. For me, routine colonoscopies are a necessity, and I'd rather work with no one else.

Dr. Levitzsky is a caring and nurturing doctor. I came to see him when I was having a gastrointestinal issue that was particularly scary (for me!) because I have a family history of colon cancer. Dr. Levitzsky took the time to explain to me what needed to be done. I feel he is a compassionate physician who treats me with respect. I recommend him to all my family and friends.

Unless you want a blood sucking GI Doctor, steer clear of Dr. Levitzky. He'll do everything he can to write you a prescription. He will not explain your options to you unless you force him - even then, he'll pull up a webpage and point to buzzwords. Then, he'll threaten you with a colonoscopy for something that definitely does not require one. He won't talk about nutrition unless you bring it up. And he'll advise you to drink Gatorade for hydration!!!! HA. GI specialists like him make $$$$
