What People Say About Dr. Gary Levengood, MD

Terrible experiencd with this doctor. I had an appt which was at 4:10pm. I waited over hour before being called, then waited another 30 minutes before he came in to see my daughter. No consideration for time. The visit literally took 30 seconds. The front staff or the office mgr professionalism or customer service. The office mgr kept talking over me and said "everyone wants to come see Dr. Levengood. Still will be charged regardless of time with him. What would you like me to do?"

Dr. Levengood and the staff of sports medicine are very knowledgeable whether in the clinic or physical therapy. I had a partial knee replacement 2 years ago and have no complaints. I had an accident last November and messed up very badly my left leg. Here I am again asking for his help. All I can say is thank you!

Definitely! Everyone there is excellent. I’ve had two surgeries with Dr. Levengood and would not hesitate to refer family and friends to him. He’s up on all of the latest treatments and extremely skilled. His PA, Diana Dean is the best. She gave me a lot of confidence in my procedures and is a “Stitcher-upper Extraordinaire” ?? The staff does a great job of scheduling visits, surgeries, and insurances. They took care of everything for me.

Dr. Levengood is the only doctor to use for orthopedic issues. Total care from beginning thru rehab. I walked out of recovery after total knee replacement!

He is terrible. He performed a surgery on my mom and damaged her rotator cuff and elbow. That's not even the problem she came in with. It's almost been a year now with no good results. It's gotten worse since seeing him. He also doesn't care every time she goes there. He just gives her blanket treatments which don't help at all. She's under workers comp and he knows he messed up, so he's just trying to save his own hide. Please don't come see him. Find someone more reliable

I have had shoulder pain for quite some time and after speaking with some people I know in the area, Dr. Levengood was highly recommended. From check in to check out for my first initial visit was top notch. All staff were very courteous and Dr. Levengood was very thorough with me during my visit to get to the bottom of my shoulder pain. MRI was done and shortly after I was scheduled for surgery. It has been over 3 months and doing great! Highly recommend Dr. Levengood as your surgeon!

Dr. Levengood performed a partial left knee replacement and ACL repair on me in March 2016. My knee never improved and actually got markedly worse, to the point where I needed to obtain another surgery 8 months afterwards (a full knee replacement this time). I lost 8 months of my life because of Dr. Levengood''s mistaken diagnosis of my knee - furthermore, my post-operative wound did not heal properly, he didn't take it seriously, and I went to a wound clinic for 2 months before it healed. DON'T

Started with scheduling appt. was told one thing but received a confirmation text for a different date. Filled out numerous paperwork pages (Approximately ten). I was glad I arrived 30 minutes early . Waited well over an hour to be called back to exam room. After preliminary info taken from staff, X-rays taken and time waited (1 hr 30 min) dr appeared with entourage of people and spent about 5 minutes total. Very matter of fact. IN & OUT. Didn't ask if I had any questions just matter of fact

Worst experience I've ever had at any doctors office. I waited two hours in the waiting room just to wait another 45 min in the room. The doctor I wouldn't say rude but not friendly at all. He came in for 5 minutes barely listen to what I said the. Ran tests. He basically dismissed me. I had to come back three times the entire time I was in horrible pain. He wouldn't give me anything for the pain. I was in enough pain for him to finally give me surgery. Worst doctor I have ever seen.

Over a 2 1/2 year period I had 3 rotatory cuff surgeries. 3? you ask? Well, I could blame it on the Doctor but can not honestly do that. The 1st Left shoulder repair was so painless I pushed the rehab a little too hard I tore the repair and had to do it over. Hardly the Doctor's fault. Dr. Levengood is an absolute magician! I can speak as well for Harris Patel, he answered every question I had as things moved along with my recovery. I kept saying how painless It was and he warned me to cool it.
