Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Levien "I believe in the total care of the patient and working closely with their families and Primary Care Physicians. I establish a "patient/Doctor" relationship which stresses the importance that he or she become a partner in their care, understanding their diseases and thoroughly being familiar with the myriad of medications they are taking and their interactions. I additionally stress nutrition and the importance of eradicating visceral obesity and establishing a safe exercise program."
