i had back surgery with Dr. Levine because of whatever he did I had to have another surgery to fix my problem. He has a terrible bed side manner. I would not recommend him to anyone. Not even an animal.

At my first appointment it was evident that I needed surgery but he did not push me to get it done. I was allowed to pick the time that was best for me. Even before the surgery we discussed optimizing my physical health by eliminating medical issues that might impede recovery. He was very thorough, using spine models to explain details. I had a 3-level ACDF in December with excellent results. He recommended Physical Therapy which has been very beneficial. Excellent surgeon, highly recommend.

Dr. Levine literally saved my life. I was living with very bad pain from a rather large protruding disc. The pain had a significant impact on my quality of life and my overall health from an activity and sleep standpoint. Dr. Levine took care of my pain. I woke up from surgery without any pain and walked out of the hospital before 11:30 a.m. that same morning. I no longer need to take pain relievers, muscle relaxers, or nerve medications to make pain tolerable enough to get through the day.

All he cares about is money and doesn’t care about you and your health.

Dr. Levine was responsive, accessible, and most importantly, he did an excellent job with my cervixal disc replacement. The whole experience was very easy in a period of intense pain and stress for me. He gave me my life back.

Had an initial consult with Dr Levine concerning a pinched nerve issue. The first thing that struck me as different was as I was sitting in the exam room waiting, he stuck his head in and said 'just be a couple more minutes as I'm reviewing your films'. IN over 30 years as a patient, this is the first time I can every recall that happening. He took time to explain what is happening, outlined the most likely outcome if not treated and then outlined his recommendations with details as to why.

Dr. Levine performed lower back surgery on me in 2003. In a nutshell, he gave me my life back! Unlike old school doctors that recommended fusing my spine, he preferred a minimally invasive procedure. I didn't even require physical therapy following my procedure.
