It took 4 reschedules to get a procedure date. The initial office visit was a waste of time & could have been done over the phone. The Dr has zero bedside manner before or during the procedure. I was asked to come in for a consult after. Took the day off and this meeting was about 10 mins long with a few questions and a decision that I had no real problem and I could come back in 2 mos. Not doubt so the Dr could ring the cash register again.

Arrived at 8:30AM appt. at 8:37AM, all pre-appointment paperwork completed and in hand to be told I was late and therefore would need to reschedule more than month our in the future. Sorry about being retired and not figuring in rush hour traffic? No. You are late. I am only here in the winter months so the wait means next fall? No, you are late. Anyone sitting in the waiting room waiting for their appt.? No. You are late. Good-bye. Ok. Goodbye.

I have been experiencing extreme stomach pain, nausea, and vomiting for months now. I started seeing Dr. Levinthal at the beginning of my issues and he and his office have been nothing but a hassle to deal with. Even after visiting the ER after throwing up blood I was surprised that his office could not get me in for OVER A MONTH. That is unacceptable in every way. After waiting that month, Levinthal saw me for less than 10 minutes before rushing out the door. AWFUL quality of care.

Dr. Levinthal This specialist is highly intelligent, is compassionate and searches for the answer as we need him to. He reads the records carefully, asks the questions that are pertinent, and some may even save your life. I've been with him 20 years, I recommend my children and grandchildren to him. When my spleen was ruptured he caught the problem, in which a surgeon, 8 other doctors did not. So, I can truthfully say he is worth the time to get to know.

This physician's address was wrong on their website and after arriving to the wrong location and calling the clinic, they informed me that, even though I was 5 minutes late that they would be rescheduling my appointment as they don't see patients after 7 minutes late. Dr. Levinthal doesn't seem to really be interested in his patients and is disconnected whenever he's in the room. He only tried a single medication before prescribing a diagnostic procedure that I'm still not sure was necessary.
