My wife has been suffering with psoriasis and joint pain for several years. We moved down to the coast around Thanksgiving 2015. She decided to find a rheumatologist in the Area instead of traveling north to the Hartford area and came upon Dr. Levin. His big recommendation for her condition was Aleve. He came across very apathetic and we really couldn't be more disappointed in him then we are. He just didn't seem to have any interest in pursuing what is going on with my wife. Disappointing

Every time I have an appointment I wait 30-45 minutes to be seen. My first visit was almost an hour wait. Then, the one time I run a few minutes late he won't see me and wants to reschedule. It's sad when your physician thinks their time is more valuable than yours and can't wait 10 minutes for you, however you are expected to wait 3/4 of an hour for them. Very frustrating!
No argument here. Patients are given time so as to deal with a myriad of problems. Therefore, I will run late with many patients almost every day. It is inevitable if you care for their problems. Time constraints are based on severity of the problems encountered. I will not rush people through when time is needed. This will sometimes lead to unhappiness for some people waiting, but this is at times a necessity.

It's been 14 years since Dr. Levin took on the challenge of helping me manage and control my psoriatic arthritis. His expertise, compassion, and professionalism go above and beyond that of your typical doctor's, in my opinion. Southeastern CT is fortunate to have this man helping those of us who must cope with the pain and frustration of arthritis in such a caring manner. -Marcy Lee
