During the visit I was given a form to complete stating the pediatrics office information... name, address, phone#, fax# as to where to send the result. After more than a week I called to ask how long does it take for the pediatrics office to receive it since I want to discuss with the pediatrician, I was told two weeks while I ask if I can speak with the Dr. and was told will have Dr. call me back, never did. Come two weeks later I called and the stuff kept putting me on hold and each time she picks up the phone say to words and put me on hold again with a final word of "DO NOT CALL THIS OFFICE FOR THE RESULT" that I should call the pediatrician. Unreal, TO DATE which is a month from the visit, I called the pediatrician's office and they still don't have result from ENT-Dr. Levitt's office. Another thing is, I'm surprised why a doctor who has been in the business for so long only accepts cash or checks and no credit cards.

Took my daughter for an appointment for possible tubes put in her ears and to take a look at her tonsils and adenoids... Dr. Levitt was extremely unprofessional, never introduced himself and he wasn’t interested in any medical background of my daughter. He was in and out of our exam room in under a minute. Worst experience I have ever had at a doctors office. I do not recommend him to anyone! Find a new doctor

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.
