Dr. Levitt's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Levitt "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. "

I was sent to Dr Levitt after a car accident. The minute she meets you she treats you as if you have been friends for years. Her receptionist is the same way.
