Dr Levinson and his staff, Hillary are without a doubt the best chance you have to finally start to realize, there is a method to this madness. They went out of there way to make it as simple and comfortable as it could be. And the unique way Dr Levinson takes his time and explains things I never had explained to me, in that way and u can slowly start to breathe as weight lifts off your shoulders.
