Patient Ratings & Comments


Comments are gathered from our patient satisfaction surveys.

I LOVE DR LEVY! I usually hate doctors and have dropped so many of them because they are rude, I dont agree with a diagnoses, or especially when they do not listen to me. Dr. Levy has made me a patient FOR LIFE! This was my 2nd or 3rd visit and I am VERY VERY grateful for him. I will there were MORE doctors (especially ones that take Medicaid) like him! He works incredibly hard for his patients. He listens intently. He cares. He's read my chart before coming in to see me. I would recommend ANYONE who needed a pulmonologist to him.
Dr levy is the best
I'm always impressed.
He is great
I am a Surgeon & Dr. Levy is a more congenial Physician than I am!!
