I had a great first meeting. Went on a Tuesday at noon and only one patient ahead of me. Good bedside manner. A sense of humor. Took his time to understand my problem and we started with the typical blood panel.I'm pretty happy so far with him as a GP.

Dr. Leventhal's clinic is small and unassuming, but don't let that fool you. Dr. Leventhal is one of the most experienced, kindest, and intelligent healthcare professionals you'll ever come across. He has a great bedside manner, is very politeand discreet, and has a wealth of professional knowledge, and great common sense and diagnostic ability (which is sometimes sadly a rarity these days). He's an excellent old-school doctor with the knowledge and know-how and great practical advice. If you come to his clinic, you won't be disappointed.
