Commack, NY |
Waited in the waiting room for 45 minutes. Then, Dr. Levitz barely spoke with me. I visited him a few times and the combined time he spent talking with me was probably 3 minutes.
At Orlin & Cohen, we do all we can to make every patient experience a positive one. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case on your recent visit to our office. We apologize for keeping you waiting and are continuing to put new procedures in place to help each of our offices operate on schedule.

Dr. Levitz was pleasant and concerned with my case. He spent more than adequate time with me diagnosing and discussing my options. Staff was likewise very professional and helpful and I made it to him by a straightforward reservation. I feel comfortable with him and confident with his decision on how to proceed. Although there are a lot of people in their practice there is more than one doctor and more important I am elated that other people are interested as well with my doctor. Thank you, Arty
Hello Arthur. On behalf of Dr. Levitz and everyone at Orlin & Cohen we would like to thank you for leaving a wonderful review for us.

Thanks for sharing and have great day!

great doctor and staff. Wait times can be excessive-I get around this by booking first or second appt. he is well worth it. Great disposition and really listens to you.
in Merrick, NY |
Nice guy, but not somebody I'd trust. Both visits were 1+ hour wait, and then 2 minutes with the doctor. Really wanted to do surgery on my shoulder. Literally walking out the door while I was still asking questions. When I wanted renew physical therapy Rx after 3 weeks, refused to renew prescription without me coming back in. After talking to office manager, told me it's doc's discretion If you want to be coerced into surgery in what feels like a cattle factory, this is the ticket.
