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.

Doctor was fine but the wait was unacceptable. Old dingy office. Would not go back unless dire need. I only booked him because my primary doctor had no availability.

I've seen Dr. Leventhal a few times now, and every time I see him, I have a great experience. He is understanding, and never makes me feel silly for asking weird or otherwise seemingly minute health questions. I always leave his office feeling that I am on my way to being healthier.

I normally don't write reviews, but I just had to this time, to prevent people from the mistake I made. When I chose this location, being the UES, I didn't expect the service to be the worst I have ever experienced. Long wait time (I came first, but they let 4 other people, who came after, ahead of me), to do the blood tests they send you to a different building where you wait 2 more hours (total time at the doctor's: 4 hours just for an annual check up), promised return calls the doctor never returned, staff hung up on me in the middle of the conversation... Will definitely not go there again, and recommend everyone else to avoid seeing that doctor! I am sincerely surprised about positive reviews left about that location here. Total disappointment to me, and from what I saw, to other clients who were there at the time. The worst customer service you can possibly expect.

It was my first time seeing him, and I went in for an annual. I had morning appointment, so I guess there was plenty of time, but he was kind and conversational. I need to get some immunization tests as a teacher, but didn't have the full list. Rather than ordering a random round of tests, and then having to go through the process again, Dr. L suggested waiting until I have the full list and then his office coordinator would schedule the tests immediately. I will definitely be seeing Dr. Leventhal again.
