Dr Leavitt was wonderful. Her office was closed. H the time we were done with my exam and she still stayed late to research something not even related to what I seen her for. She was very through and helpful. I would absolutely recommend her to my family and friends!!!

Dr. Levitt was a second opinion for back surgery. She came highly recommended by a friend who used Dr. Levitt. My back was injured 48 years ago in an industrial accident. I had been told by another doctor that my back was inoperable. Dr. Levitt assured me that she could fuse two vertebrae and install two cadaver discs and this would solve my problem. From day one I walked out of the hospital and have amazed friends and associates at my quick recovery. My wife and I love Dr. Levitt and staff.

Such a FABulous and caring neurosurgeon! I've never had a doctor in any field of medicine sit down with me and brainstorm solutions for the treatment of my hydrocephalus for as long as she did. I was referred to Dr Levitt by several friends in our Utah hydrocephalus community who absolutely love her. I sought her out for a second opinion and we were able to discuss my case in depth. Dr Levitt still checks in with me via text to see how I'm feeling.

Dr. Levitt says...

My policy is that the patient matters more than anything else. I take the time to make an accurate diagnosis and explain the details to my patients at a level they can understand. Surgery is not always the best answer, but when it is I take the time to chose the best approach. I will always do my best to explain the procedure and expectations to each patient .

I love what I do, and am a very good surgeon. My patients can attest to the fact I take interest in them before and after their surgery.  

I understand what my patients go through having been a patient myself for a neck problem years ago. I am also a breast cancer survivor.

I have kept my personal promise never to lose my empathy. It sets me apart from many others in my field.

I have helped fix many problems from surgeries from incorrect diagnoses. I review every film myself.

Dr. Levitt says...

I am a general neurosurgeon, and have extensive training in brain tumors, malformations(chiari), and shunts. I do most spine surgeries (disk,tumors, pain, and instability) and nerve problems such as carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve problems.

Dr. Levitt says...

I take care of many difficult shunt patients, spine abnormalities. I take time to listen and examine. I have many times found problems other physicians have missed.
