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 polite and 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.

Great overall experience arrived early since I was a new patient. Filled out the insurance paperwork only a couple of pages. Met with the doctor in his office at my scheduled appointment time. Went over my family medical history took me into the examination room. Did a complete physical exam, couldn't do blood work since I had recently eaten. He referred me to a lab to conduct my blood work and additional tests for the next day. Talked again briefly afterwards and is referring me to other specialists to complete my overall physical. Very easy to talk to and made me very comfortable the entire time. Looking forward to having Dr. Leventhal be my doctor for years to come.

Terrible diagnosis. Could not find an answer and so concluded it was all in ly head. He would not let me finish my sentences and would come to his own conclusions before even listening to the whole case. Too old and proud for the game.
