Dr. Levy is the fifth doctor who in the last three years has been treating me for macular degeneration, He has the lightest and most gentle hand of the 5 doctors I happened to get injections before: the least intrusive experience with no pain whatsoever! Simply the BEST. As a result my condition seems also to be slowly improving as well. I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND Dr. Levy and his great staff.

Years ago, a family member needed emergency care for a partially detached retina. We met Dr. Levy late in the afternoon, last, after a day of scheduled doctor app't's. Right after the exam, he put us at ease and was optimistic about the outcome. We knew he was the one for us. We've been with him ever since. He is professional, understanding, answers all our questions, and is an excellent doctor.

Dr. Levy is an exceptional doctor with a wealth of knowledge. I have been going to him since 2012 when he performed surgery on my eye due to a retinal detachment. My surgery went remarkably well. Now today I had to have laser eye surgery in the other eye thank god we found the small tear in time. Dr Levy's staff were extremely helpful, organized, friendly and made me feel comfortable.
