Meeting with Dr. Lever was a life changing experience. My husband has suffered from many different ailments over the past few decades. All of which seemed unrelated. It wasn't until we met with Dr. Lever that we found out that all of his sickness and surgeries were related. In fact, he already new what was wrong with my husband before we got to the clinic. None of the previous doctors that we had seen over the years had ever mentioned his diagnosis. Yet, Dr. Lever knew what was wrong with my husband just by the records that our doctors sent to him. My husband has a rare and fatal disease. As bad at that is, at least we now know what we're dealing with and we can get treatment for it. We're forever thankful!

Dr Lever was very thorough. He saw me before my tests were completed, and he saw me afterwards too, even though it was after clinic hours. He told me he needed to check with Dr Smedira before recommending surgery, and that he would be back into contact with me. I was surprised to hear from him by around 10:00 the next morning. He is very 'on top' of his practice and that means a lot coming from the community health system at large, where it took 2 years to find out I had HOCM with high exercise gradient. His expertise is priceless.
