Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Levinson "I successfully started my Ophthalmology practice in 1979 with an uncompromising commitment to compassion, understanding and complete patient care. My practice philosophy is simple; provide state-of-the-art technical expertise, be kind to my patients and my medical and surgical staff, and keep my fees reasonable. By following this philosophy, I've built, and I continue to maintain, one of the largest solo Ophthalmology practices in Denver. In addition to offering Laser Vision Correction, we also offer cataract surgery and as well as routine medical eye care.

My on-going commitment is to create an environment for my patients that is both kind and caring, while providing the most advanced technology available in medical and surgical eye care."

Patient Comments (2)

I saw Dr. Levinson for an allergic reaction to eye drops and also for lasik surgery. He is very good and very professional. The entire office runs this way. All my visits were positive experiences.
