Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Levitt is a good doctor...if you're actually able to see him and followed up with properly. For months I've accepted the long wait times and hostile staff to be able to be treated by Dr. Levitt. I drew the line when his medical assistant Brianna sent the wrong prescription to my pharmacist.

In 3 visits, Dr. Levitt spent less than 5 minutes with me, did not listen to me or even touch my foot (the site of the stress fracture). He then said if it did not heal I'd have to have surgery. I then sought a 2nd opinion..
