Put zero notes in my chart to summarize my appointment. No way for the team of docs to know anything about my appointment.

My daughter recently had surgery performed by Dr. Levinson. He and his staff have been outstanding! They were responsive, took the time to answer any questions we had - including between follow up appointments. They were great in helping to reach closure with insurance to obtain approval for the surgery. And the surgery went off without a hitch! Can't recommend more highly! A big Thank You to Dr. Levinson, Stephanie Brewer and Kristy Proffit.

Dr. Levison performed an open repair of a large incisional hernia. He and his staff were good about answering my questions, and the operation went very well. I was very pleased with the in- and out-of-hospital follow-up and care.

Dr. Levinson really took the time explain my upcoming surgery and was very honest and sincere in his desire to help eliminate a 3rd degree burn scar that causes me a lot pain and now infections. I feel completely relaxed and confident that he will do his best for me and truly appreciate a doctor that listens and really hears their patient.Dr. Levinson was definitely that for me. Being in and out of Duke hospital with my special needs daughter for 25 years , Dr. Levinson is a good doctor!
