Dr. Levy is one of two of my favorite medical service providers of all time (and I am 66 years old so have had many)

Reviewed on Feb 20, 2018

This was a first visit to this specialist in an effort to find a new urologist closer to home. While overall the experience was good, I felt too much time was spent with the care provider in front of a computer screen entering information about the visit and recording my answers to his questions instead of directly communicating with eye contact with me. Being a first visit this may have been due to the amount of new information that needed to be documented. However, the visit came off as somewhat too business like and the provider did not seem as personable due to the amount of time focused on the computer versus the patient. I hope to continue with this specialist and to find a more personable approach with more face time as we get to know each other and the doctor becomes familiar with my specific health issues.
