I have been Dr. Leventhal’s patient for many years for my fibromyalgia, he has treated me with so much TLC. I’m so glad he was carful not giving strong meds and encouraged exercise and proper diet. His sense of humor got me through hard times that were triggers. He’s my favorite doctor.

Dr Leventhal is so knowledgeable he gave me peace of mind and got my chronic pain under control within a few days I was feeling amazing. I went from not being able to move to once again being able to function. It's been three years and I recommend him to everyone family & friends.
