I made an appointment to have a sinus balloon procedure performed. I should have backed out after the initial office visits prior to the procedure. The office staff was completely dysfunctional and inept. The doctor is totally bizarre. I was the first patient the day of the procedure. I went through the painful preparation. Lidocaine swabs 6 inches up the sinuses and multiple shots. Then I was informed by the doctor that the scope was not available. The scope was not available???? Why didn't they know this earlier? Then he had the nerve to suggest I reschedule. I do not understand why He is still practicing. You have been warned.

I’m not sure what to think of Dr. Levin. First appointment was to see him and they gave me someone else but I insisted that I see Dr. Levin. He was like being at a comedy club, never have I been seen a doctor who acted like he did. Sent me for Xrays and then my follow up appointment they again gave me of his associates who said they work as a team however my appointment was supposed to be with Dr, Levin. Neither diagnosed my issue or suggested any treatment. Said I should follow up I’m a month “for what”. Not gong back!

Dr. Levin is an amazing ENT doctor and SLO is lucky to have him! He removed an infected and abscessed cyst from my neck. I experienced zero pain after my surgery! My incision is beautiful. Dr. Levin is a masterful surgeon and I’m beyond grateful that I was referred to him! Thank you so much Dr. Levin!!

I am guessing it is hit and miss with this doctor. After two visits, I never met the doctor. Rather, I was interviewed by the nurse who complained about staff members calling in sick. My attempt was to transfer my service to a new doctor whose commercials would suggest someone who cares. That would not be my experience as I never saw the doctor.

The most grossly unprofessional and rude doctor I have ever met. I do not know who would allow him to operate on them. He acts like a cartoon character.

I absolutely loved Dr. Levin. His staff was amazing the ladies at the front desk were friendly and professional. So refreshing, most of the time we go to the doctors, the staff doesn't even look up at you. Dr. Levin was very caring and took the time to explain everything. Thank You, K. Silva

I am so happy I found Dr. Levin. I was suffering from a persistent sinus infection that would never go away despite the antibiotics and sprays my other ENT prescribed me. I was quite miserable and decided to make a switch, called Dr. Levin's office and they got me in the next day. Dr. Levin discovered a fungal infection the other ENT had missed, and recommended surgery, which happened quickly and went very well. He called me several times at home in the following days to see how I was doing

Dr. Levin is the best ENT I have ever seen. He diagnosed an ear problem that no other Doctor could figure out for 40 years. He's GREAT! Not only a great Docor, but, caring, and takes all the time in the world during your visit.

Never have I experienced a more ridiculous office visit! Never examined me just sent me for a sinus scan! Then charges me twice for a nasal endoscopy! I refused to pay it! I switched doctors and still can't breathe lying down and still have debilitating sinus pain! I've given up of finding a decent ENT!

I have been to countless doctors and none were able to diagnose the problems I was having. Many were quick to put me on medication without fixing the actual problem. It wasn't until I found Dr. Levin that everything changed. He was thorough and sent me out to get testing done to look into my issue further. After all of those tests, he quickly found a solution to help cure some issues that I have been having for years. I was fortunate to find such a knowledgeable doctor! Thank you Dr. Levin!
