Patient Comments (3)
in Paso Robles, CA |
Dr Levitan has been very easy to work with and extremely caring. He had provided medications, referrals & epidural injection's for me. Recently he implanted a medtronics spinal cord stimulator in my lumbar spine. This has given me huge relief of sciatic pain and lumbra neuropathy. I'm scheduled for a cervical epidural again in 5 days, and while the surgery center can be quite busy, he and his staff are caring, comasionate and dedicated to whole patient care. I could not rate him highly enough.

He is a great doctor who cares about his patients and with me he has helped so much and understanding that about the pain I am in and he talks to me about what can be done to help me without taking a lot of pills and I thank him for that so much

He is a bully. He is disrespectful. He is condescending. He is judgemental. He NEVER listens to patients. He constantly interrupts patients. He is accusatory, often accusing his own patients of LYING!!! He will not tolerate any differences of HIS opinions. He is offended if you question his medical judgements /decisions. He has no business being a dr. He has ZERO bedside manner. I think hed be better off working as a pathologist/coroner - with dead bodies &/obody parts only.
