My experience with Dr. Levy has been much better than my first visit with him. Since that visit, I have had a pre-op meeting, surgery, and a follow up appointment. All were excellent experiences with Dr. Levy. I am very happy with the outcome of the procedure, and am grateful for his expertise!

I was very anxious about the procedure Dr Levy was doing and he took the time to listen to me and calmed my worries- I genuinely appreciated his concern, time and patience. He was right, everything was just fine. He is a skilled physician and that's why I went to him.

When I called the main line, the girl that scheduled me told me there was no physician by the name of Dr. Levy at the clinic. I was not confident that the date/ time that she ended up scheduling me for was even an actual appointment. However, when I met with Dr. Levy and his staff, I was pleasantly surprised!

I met with Dr. Levy about the removal of a squamous cell carcinoma inSitu on my left forearm. Dr. Levy was very kind. He explained to me that my skin is very thin and sensitive and that after the surgery the stitches would have to stay in longer to allow the skin to heal. I didn't feel a thing during the surgery or the stitching afterward. When Dr. Levy removed the stiches, I didn't feel anything, He did a wonderful job in my opinion.
