Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Levinthal "As a neurosurgeon with 35 years experience, I believe in attempting to utilize conservativ therapy, but if that fails to offer the most effective operative options. I strongly believe in communicating with the patient and their family and making the patient as informed as possible about their options and alternatives."

Patient Comments (2)
in Houston, TX |
He isn't helpful at all. He only wants to do surgery. He doesn't listen at all.
in Spring, TX |
Dr. Robert Levinthal is a incompetent, uncaring hack who performed a failed cervical spinal fusion on me and insisted I use a home-traction unit to control the pain, this temporary paralyzed me below the neck and my life has never been the same since. At the followup appointment after this happened he LAUGHED and said "better not try that again huh?" - he then discharged me as a patient and told me to go to a pain specialist. On 300mg of morphine daily and my life was destroyed because of him.
