Be sure to check in before you go to avoid the paperwork.. The wait time was a little on the average side but he has many patients for a reason; Have patience, get a bite before you go if possible, foryour visit I highly reccomend to bring a book or a cool app or an activity to occupy you while you wait.. The doctor will be with you momentarily and is cheerful towards his work.

The waiting area was loud, chaotic. When the dust finally settled, I waited for over an hour... 1 hour and 25 minutes to be exact...to be seen by Dr. Levin. I asked twice if the front desk can give me anETA and each time they said I am next. At the 1 hour 20 minute mark, I had enough and asked the front desk for a refund on my copay because I was going to leave. Finally, the med. tech called me in. Aside from the chaotic waiting area and long wait even though I made an appointment, the doctor seemed to really know what he’s talking about. For that, I will give this place another try.

Appointment was at 11:45, ended up seeing him at 12:30. But he was a great doctor, he told me the things I needed, and helped me with my ear. Would recommend him, I mean the wait can be a little pain.But that’s with most doctors. Overall he was quick and got me the help I needed.

I am very much unhappy with the attitude of the two ladies at the front desk. Very very unprofessional and disrespectful. If they do not change their attitude a good doctor will loose his patients day by day.

I arrived 15 min late, I am not sure that this was the reason why I waited an additional 2 hours to be seen. I would of been okay with the wait had my sons issue been resolved. I took my3 year old to get his ear checked for a failed hearing exam and wax buildup which is causing repeated infections. The doctor cleaned one ear (the unaffected one) and my son began to cry (like any other child would if you stick a huge metal stick in their ear) At that moment the doctor decided he was not going to "make him hate doctors for the rest of his life" and did not clean the AFFECTED ear. He prescribed him medication to loosen the buildup? but the wax obstruction remains unresolved. Now i have to go to another doctor. He perhaps may be a good doctor for adults ; definitely not for children. Parents stay away.

Dr Levin was excellent. His bedside manner is great and he is good at explaining what he is doing. However, I cannot recommend going here due to the waiting time and the room we had to wait in. I was therean hour and 35 minutes before I was seen. In addition, some of the seats in the waiting room smelled and looked like they had been urinated on. I likely won't be returning here.

I had the 9am appt. on a sub freezing January 2016 morning. Dr. Levin was thorough in explaining his diagnosis of BPPV, listened attentively to my description of the history and circumstances of two episodes six months apart, and performed acomplete exam of ears, nose and throat. He had me perform various movements with my fingers and lifting each leg, eyes closed, and arms and hands perpendicular to my body as I stood. He gave me a script for an MRI with contrast and emphasis on IAC so as to get details of my left ear vestibular canals, which might cause the severe vertigo. He also referred me to a physical therapist close by who specializes in vestibular disorders and balance issues. Great experience!
