Dr. Levinson performed a radical tympanomastoidectomy on my right ear. After removing all damaging growth, he was able to craft a bone from cartilage which was destroyed by the cholesteatoma and attach a titanium prosthesis to it to improve my hearing. My hearing improved immediately after the surgery and all cholesteatoma had been removed which was quite extensive. He was thorough in his explanation of the procedure, answered all my questions to satisfaction, and highly skillful at his expertise. I would highly recommend Dr. Levinson for those seeking a reliable and skillful ENT specialist.

Dr Levenson surgically removed a cholesteatoma Last year. The surgery was very extensive and hours long This year he rebuilt my whole eardrum and I can happily say that I can hear again. It is like a miracle. Dr Levenson is the absolute best Dr that I have ever had. He is kind and very patient. He takes the time to answer any questions, gives detailed info on all steps and refers you to his website for more detailed info or to answer any questions you may have The whole office in Saratoga NY is an absolute pleasure to visit. I am super excited that I can hear again after two years

My daughter has seen many ENTs since being born with ear fluid and conductive hearing loss. She had 6 sets of tubes before finally seeing Dr. Levenson. Each set of tubes would last 6 months or so before working their way out resulting in fluid build up and hearing loss. Dr. Levenson was recommended by another doctor we saw in NYC. He at first recommended a surgeon at Boston Children who specialized in her particular scenario. Imagine a surgeon who cares about his patients and is confident enough to recommend a second opinion! When that procedure didn't take, we returned to Dr. Levenson where he placed my daughter's 7th set of tubes and reconstructed her eardrum. Dr. Levenson's surgery and tubes have lasted 4 years so far and her hearing is perfect. We are so grateful to have found him. He has recently split from the Albany group he was with and we will make the 45 minute drive to Saratoga to continue seeing him.

Dr. Levenson surgically removed a cholesteatoma in June 2020 which was rapidly deteriorating the hearing in my right ear. He saved a bone in my middle ear and fashioned a new eardrum which restored my hearing. His expertise and calming demeanor eliminated my anxiety. He repeatedly answered my weekly list of questions and encouraged patience. He is a skillful surgeon who is honest, patient, and caring. What more do you want? I would definitely recommend him.

I have been a patient of Dr. Levenson for several years and can't say enough good things about him. He is an outstanding physician and surgeon and is incredibly knowledgeable and thorough. My case was somewhat unusual and complicated and he was able to diagnose and treat my issues using techniques that no other provider in the area are using. His knowledge in his field is uncomparable. Saratoga Springs is lucky to have someone of his caliber working here. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Mark Levenson saved my hearing, and possibly more, with his surgical expertise. After another specialist told me to wait and watch my continued hearing loss, Dr. Levenson recognized the need for surgical correction, and I am so grateful. He was able to remove the cholesteatoma, reconstruct the bones and eardrum, and 18 months later, my hearing has been restored to equal that of my other ear. He explained my condition and the surgical procedure in great detail, and in an understandable manner. He is cautious and comprehensive in all of my follow up appointments, and he is gentle but thorough in all of my exams.

I have suffered with chronic sinusitis & sinus infections, deviated septum, nasal problems,etc., for many years. Please see Dr. Mark Levenson for an evaluation. He is very kind, caring & an expert in his field. He is the BEST Dr. I have seen in a long time. After a day-surgery procedure, I can finally breath and my symptoms have resolved. His nurses and office staff are very kind. Thank you Dr. Levenson for all you did for me. I wish I met you years ago!

This is the worst Dr I have ever seen and wasted my time with. I was contacted by his office phone hold numerous times requesting all medical records or I would not be able to have the appointment. Records were sent lost and sent again. Finally when I got into see him Dr Levenson said "I have not had the time to review your records". Then looked up my nose and said nothing is wrong with me. I was suffering terribly and went back to Mount Sinai.. Scans were done and was put in for surgery immediately! This Dr do not give me the time of day. I am very sad and sorry I wasted my time with this NON professional..There are many other Drs that are far better.. He us the worst Dr I have ever seen.. Beware!!!

I was almost completely deaf in my left ear due bone growth ("surfers ear"?). Dr. Levenson performed surgery on my ear to reduce/eliminate the bone. It was very complicated and I am not sure there is anyone in this area that could have done what he was able to do. He was able to restore my hearing back to normal! I would emphatically recommend Dr. Levenson!

My name is Lisa Gornay-Lutz and all I can say is he is the BEST. I have been a patient of Dr. Levenson’s for over 30 years. One of the most brilliant doctors I have ever been treated by. He has been blessed and gifted with miraculous hands. Very professional, thorough and compassionate with his care. He explains everything in detail. I travel three hours from Rockland County just to be seen by him. If anyone reads this review and is looking for the best of the best for an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist, please reach out to Dr. Levenson. You won’t be disappointed. He did two major surgeries on my left ear, Cholesteatoma and Reconstructive Ear Surgery and treated me for Menieres in my right ear. I’m a new person and hearing restored. I cannot even begin to explain how comfortable and happy I am in his care. Truly a blessing in his field of expertise.

I was sent to Dr. Levenson on the recommendation of another doctor. Having lost nearly all hearing in one ear, I thought I was needing to wear hearing aids but surgery corrected my problem. I now have nearly full hearing recovery. In addition to surgery, his instructions on ear care has made a big difference in maintaining and even improving my ability to hear. I can also say he explained procedures and care on a level I could understand, pointing out outcomes if I did or did not follow through.
