Dr. Levitin is the most caring and thorough physician I have ever met. My surgery recovery was fast and easy, and the doctor was always available to answer my questions. Her team was great, and the office is very clean (great for these crazy times). Thank you SO much!!!

She is a compassionate and caring about her patients. She has a way of explaining the procedure she will be doing that puts you at ease....not sugar coating or exaggerating...what can be expected. I have extreme confidence in her abilities as a surgeon, and recommend him to anyone needing surgery....she also has a wonderful sense of humor.

Dr. Levitin's office was awesome! They got me in right away and even stayed open late to make sure I could be seen the same day . The office manager was so sweet, she offered me a payment plan for surgery costs so everything was really affordable. I'm incredibly lucky to have them as my doctor's office, I would recommend them without any reservation whatsoever.

Dr. Yelena Levitin has been amazing throughout this entire experience. I had to have open surgery. She has made me feel comfortable from the beginning and has helped me with the recovery along the way. Should I have to have surgery again for any general reasons, I will most definitely request that she be the one to do it. I highly recommend her! Thank you, Dr. Levitin!

Many thanks to Dr. Levitin for the operation she performed to remove the atheroma. The operation was successful and all the wounds healed up in a very short time without any complications. She is really good at doing her job! The atmosphere was very pleasant. I do not regret I came to this clinic

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!

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.

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
