What People Say About Dr. Seth Levitz, MD

Two years ago I had a severe hand injury severing a digital nerve. This was especially problematic given I’m a health care provider that uses his hands. Dr Levitz was incredibly accurate in his assessment and received an incredible result which is FULLY functional. Highest recommendation. He is a gifted, caring surgeon.

I am so thankful to have found Dr. Levitz, a very competent, thoughtful and kind physician. He listens well, explains well and gives choices as well as his recommendation. He gives excellent shots (in my hand) that you hardly notice. I have scheduled my Carpo Tunnel surgery with him in May. I have full confidence in him.

Dr. Levitz saw me when I fractured my wrist in a fall. He was outstanding in his care, supportive, efficient, and most important totally professional and an excellent doctor who was an amazing mix of professional and personal support. And the very best recommendation is that my wrist healed very well and in a week less time than originally expected. He is an excellent physician and a good person.

Dr Levitz displayed all that is good in a surgeon. Extreme attention to detail and compassion that many folks believe no longer exists in the industry. If it were not for Dr. Levitz surgery on my elbow over this past winter, I'd still be waking up with chronic pain & misery. Two thumbs up for this compassionate professional.
