Dr. Levinger has an excellent bedside manner and clearly keeps current in respect of his field. I read dozens of scientific research articles to learn more about my condition and treatment options in order to prepare for my first ENT appointment. He was able to answer all of my questions about about the research (it was clear he had read the latest research too!). He is great at sharing and explaining images/results - explains things CLEARLY and COMPLETELY!!!

Dr. Levinger is pleasant, knowledgeable, and very efficient. He is also very quick in follow up communication. Very impressed.

There aren't enough stars or thumbs up emoji's that can describe Dr. Levinger. I have been to six doctors in the past three months after a terrible ear and throat issue. I had several procedures to find out the cause for a loss of one of my senses. I was recommended to Dr. Levinger by another professional and finally during my exam and visit, got some answers. He is smart, engages with his patient and actually looks at records and history, I left his office feeling confident with his plan.

He has excellent bed side manor and so much patience. He explains all options available and topical anastesia is his friend.
in Brooklyn, NY |
Dr. Levinger was a kind physician and an excellent surgeon. While offering to refer me to a plastic surgeon, he reassured me regarding my concerns about how the surgery would affect my appearance, and I opted not to see a plastics specialist. This was my first surgery, and I was quite nervous, but the procedure was painless and I recovered in just a few weeks, without any nerve damage or disfigurement. If I were ever to suffer the same condition again, I would go directly to Dr. Levinger.
