Great Doctor!
in Morton Grove, IL |
I have seen Dr. Levitin for a few procedures. Every time I call her office, her staff gets me a next day appointment. Dr. Levitin is always very attentive. She listens, makes her diagnosis, and thoroughly explains treatment options. She explains each procedure in great detail making sure I understand everything. Dr. Levitin is a great doctor! Same goes for the Dr. Levitin’s staff. They are very attentive and polite; explain what to do following each procedure, and call back the next day

I've been seeing Dr. Levitin over the past ten years for various problems. She is the most caring and knowledgeable doctor I know! Dr. Levitin's diagnosis is always right on and she swiftly takes care of all problems. The front office staff of Chicago Surgical is simply incredible. Their passion and dedication brings the usual stress of a surgeon's office visit to a minimum. Great practice overall!
Buffalo Grove, IL |
I have been going to Dr. Levitin for a while, she is not only treating me but my whole family. She is one of the first doctors that we think of and call if needed. She is extremely thorough. Her diagnostics are right on and execution seamless – scars are minimal when visible. In my opinion, she is one of the best surgeons / doctors around.
Cicero, IL |
Terrible Office. The Front desk is extremely rude and unprofessional, billing is an absolute rip-off, and doctor Levitin is behind this dream team. Had visited the office a few times. But the last visits just got out of control. Left Levitin's visit after she gave me an ultimatum to either come back later when she had more time for me, even though they asked me to come a week earlier to fills someone else's canceled appointment. Also, your insurance will be pretty impressed by her greed
Dr Levitin is best doctor I ever met. Surgery was done so professional and neat that I didn't have to use any medications. My hernia cured in no time. I was riding a bicycle on third day after surgery.
in Vernon Hill |
Very professional, clearly passionate about what she does and made me feel safe about being in her care
in Illinois |
Very poor bed side manner . No time for answering questions. Spend more time with her nurses than her. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.
in Des Plaines, IL |
Fantastic Doctor and very thorough with what she does. The most painless Colonoscopy i've ever had!
in Palatine, IL |
True to her philosophy! Treated me with the utmost respect, compassion, and understanding.
