As a woman of a certain age, Dr. Levine goes over any questions you may have and gives his opinion on frequency of pap tests and other requirements that you read in the paper that you should or shouldn't have over a certain age. He makes you feel comfortable and puts you at ease.

I almost had my baby in the car- so when I saw Dr Levine and told him I needed to push he calmly said "so let's push" -my baby arrived a few minutes later. He was so calm, cool, and that's exactly what I needed because I was so scared. He's a great Doctor!!

We unfortunately didn't have the pleasure of meeting DR. Levine until the day I was induced in the hospital on Christmas Eve 2015. We wish we had met him sooner!!! He was so calm and comforting that he completely put my nerves at ease. My husband and I really enjoyed his personality. He also checked on us often in person or calling the nurses when off shift... amazing!

To say that I love Dr. Levine is an understatement. When I was pregnant and met with different doctors, I knew he was the one within minutes of meeting him. He is very calm, confident, intelligent, hysterically funny (he had me laughing during my elective c-section), trustworthy and most of all - CARING - he sits down and talks. He has been doing this a long time but you can tell he still enjoys it. His office staff are excellent too, very friendly and have everything buttoned up perfectly.
