Patient Comments (1)
in New York, NY |
This was the first time I met Dr. Levy. I went to him for a second opinion regarding the need for an MRI prior to strabismus surgery. Compared with the first doctor I went to see, Dr. Levy spent far more time explaining the condition. He faced me when he was answering questions as opposed to the first doctor who concentrated more on his computer and avoided eye contact - oddly - until the last couple of minutes. Dr. Levy answered questions honestly. I would definitely recommend him.
