About Me

Care Philosophy

I believe that patients have to take an active role in their care. Because the medical terminology can be quite confusing, difficult, and scary, I try to make sure that patients have a full understanding of their condition and the various options tha...

What People Say About Dr. Jean-Christophe Leveque, MD

Dr. Leveque explained and showed me the procedure he would be performing on my back. I did my own research also so I would know exactly what to expect through the healing process. My post surgery visit was five months after surgery and my pain had disappeared. He shared my x-rays with me and I was extremely happy. The only regret I have is that I didn't have surgery one year sooner. I highly recommend Dr. Leveque.

Dr. Leveque is an excellent surgeon with great optimism and a positive bedside manner. We had a long wait scheduling the surgery but the outcome was worth it!

I had a herniated disc (severe spinal stenosis) in the thoracic region of my back. The surgery was quite extensive and complicated, but with the great skills of Dr. Leveque and team, I am as good as new! No pain, no issues. After 1 year, I have just a slight tingling and numbness in my feet but it doesn't bother me, nor is it restricting.. Dr. Leveque was professional, personable and patient with me in answering all my questions.

I highly recommend Dr. Leveque. I was seen, evaluated and diagnosed by Dr. Leveque himself, not a PA. He was extremely knowledgeable, up to date and listened to everything I had to say. He was not arrogant, nor in a hurry. He was compassionate. He cared about giving me the best operation for me. He preformed the surgery himself, which is not true for every surgeon (a little know fact among patients). The surgery and his care were both impeccable.

Dr. Leveque is awesome and very thorough. I saw him several times, and started visiting his holistic team (pain management, psychology, anesthesia, nurses, radiology, etc.). All were extremely professional. A program was developed, and my BMI had to go from 41.3 to under 35. I had Complex Spinal Surgery 11/10/16 fusing T-10 - S1, cobalt wire pinned to my pelvic bone. The surgery went great including the 54 staples.. The first six weeks of recovery was rough. I HIGHLY recommend Virginia Mason.

I was in a accident over a year ago and have been trying to get answers to what is going on with me since. Dr.Leveque not only took me on as a patient but fit me in promptly. He spent a long time with me in my appointment going over what his thoughts were. He suggested some tests and got them scheduled the same day so we could make the trip home on time. I was beyond impressed with Dr Leveque and his office they went above and beyond. They came highly recommended and did not disappoint.

Dr Leveque performed neck fusion on me , I am VERY happy with the outcome. My only complaint is/was while he working at Group Health, it was so hard to get through to his nurse with questions. Please schedule an appointment and meet with Dr. Leveque, he is a good listener and concerned about why I am there to see him.

Follow up and concern was very poor and led directly to the necessity of a second surgery due to medical error.
