He is the worst Dr. there is out there. Whether you child needs surgery or not he will still tell you they do and is only looking for the $$$$$'s in his pocket. Especially since you pay up front for it.

In June 2016 Dr Levitt performed surgery removing the tonsils and adenoids of two of my children ages at the time 4 and 6 years old. They both had trouble breathing at night and my 6 year old actually stop breathing periodically at night due to over sized tonsils and adenoids. Dr. Levitt scheduled both their surgeries the same day. The procedure wasn't very long. Recovery time is a little tough of course but I think it went well. Immediately I saw a difference in their sleep. The snoring stopped

Was running late for appt, stuck in traffic with a toddler on the parkway. Called to tell them. Was told "ok, no problem". When I arrived, was informed the doctor left, despite still being office hours. Poor communication from staff. Apparently the doctors time is more important than mine. Appalling customer service.

My daughter had a tonsillectomy & adenoidectomy. Everything went very well,recovery 1st wk was a little rough on her,but then 2nd wk was much better.Renee called & checked on my daughter almost everyday the 1st wk,made me feel comfortable with any questions I may have had.Very friendly & knowledgeable office staff.Dr.Levitt was very straightforward which I appreciated. Surgery only took no more than 30 mins tops.Overall were happy with the decision to have the tonsils & adenoids removed.
