Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Levitin was very professional and explained everything quite well, including treatment options and their effectiveness. I will go back to him for the procedure (turbinectomy) as I feel very confident in his qualifications and standard of care.
The wait time, as mentioned, left a lot to be desired. But Levitin was worth it. Efficient, friendly, and a very calming presence. Worth the wait. (but expect a wait)
The issue was efficiently addressed. Very productive visit.
Dr. Levitin is terrific. I wish all doctors had his explanatory skills and ability to translate complex information into the simple stuff that affects your health.
Dr. Levitin is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. Thorough, thoughtful and caring. His staff, especially Beverley, is great too.
Dr. Levitin was great. Very nice, informative and friendly. I had to wait 20 minutes to be seen which wasn't ideal and the office staff aren't exactly friendly or proactive so that is a minus. But the doctor himself is great so it makes it worth it.
Seems ok so far the outcome of how I feel following treatment will determine my feelings here!
very personable and efficient
Excellet, professional, personable, and will deffientely recommend/refer him to friends and family and will be going back.
Extremely nice, knowledgeable, and efficient! I was a new patient and came in for a visit during my lunch break. My appointment was at 1:30. I was there at 1:15 to fill out my new patient paperwork. I was in the room by 1:30. I was with Dr. Levitin by 1:45 and out the door, diagnosed, with prescription in hand by 2. I was thoroughly impressed with his knowledge, diagnosing skills, and bedside manner. Highly recommend!
Dr. Levitin was completely professional and knowledgeable. He promptly helped me with my issue and was very clear when explaining different aspects of my condition. I recommend him highly!
Great first visit. Dr. Levitin was friendly, knowledgable, and efficient in coming up with a course of action -- and eager to get the ball rolling.
Superb! Kind, understanding, helpful and very professional.
Dr. Levitin was extremely thourough, personable and easy to understand.
He was great and addressed the issues I had with my nose and the options.. I was actually 20 minutes late and they still say me, very IMPRESSIVE??
Dr. Levitin really knows what he's doing. He's got steady hands and is incredibly gentle with the needle. You can tell he's been practicing for well over 10 years. His bedside manner isn't the softest, but any sense that he's showing a lack of concern is his way of communicating, "You're going to be okay, soon, so stop being such a baby!" He's confident in his skill level as a physician, and for good reason -- I feel so much better after my visit. I will definitely be back.
Great experience. Fast, thorough and to the point. Would highly recommend.
Great doctor, caring, and professional. Highly recommend!
Best of the best in NYC. Staff also pleasant and compassionate. Great experience.
Dr. Levitin was friendly and knowledgeable. He diagnosed my sinus infection within minutes and immediately had me on my way to recovery. I will definitely visit him again if needed.
This is probably one of the most efficient and pleasant visits I've had a doctors office. I didn't have to wait at all and was taken care of right away. The doctor also made me feel very comfortable and was great! I definitely recommend this Doctor.
It took a very long time to get seen - the waiting room was unruly and crowded.
Very personable, easy to talk to. I feel better!
The visit was good. Dr. Levitin listens and takes my concerns seriously. Enough so that he arranged for an immediate test that he thought was needed for the visit and then when the test was completed saw me again to go over results and plan future treatment. Very happy with the care I've received both times I saw Dr. Levitin.
He was greatl
Very helpful. Thorough explanations
Dr. Levitin is articulate, intelligent and genial. He will explain his findings and recommendations in simple, understandable fashion. I recommend him very highly.
He took the time to explain everything and was careful not to give me anything that I might react poorly to since I am very sensitive to medications. I didn't feel rushed and he was very nice and accommodating.
I see Dr. Levitin regularly to get ear wax cleaned. He is very courteous, professional and no fuss. The staff is very friendly. For such a simple procedure, I'm usually in and out within 20 minutes!
The doctor was knowledgeable but having to sit and wait an hour (45 minutes after my appointment time) was not ideal.
I've seen Dr. Levitin for a few years now. He's thorough, pleasant, and happy to answer questions.
He's wonderful and his staff is great. Love this office, love this practice.
Professional but warm, knowledgeable, and was able to quickly figure out my sinus issue.
Great staff, nice office and very professional. Dr. Levitin very patient, professional and helpful.
Very happy that I went to him. He is very caring and takes time to address your questions. He was very thorough and really knows his stuff. I feel comfortable putting my son's treatment in his hands.
Great! Will return again an again
Awesome. Explains things. Would recommend!
As long as you fill out all the forms prior to showing up for your appointment you're good to go. Dr. Levitin was very professional and efficient (I was in and out of the office in under an hour). He was thoughtful and informative. I had never seen an ENT before and I had a very good first experience. I'm looking forward to working with him further!
He is a real professional. Also very compasionate and shows real concerns for his patients.
I was very please , after seeing other doctors ,who did not explain to me the main reason of my problem he did and I am so happy to be treated by him.
I came to Dr. Levitin because of problems with my throat. After examining me, he told me that in fact I had problem with my nose and prescribed a strong medication for the nose (even though I felt no discomfort at all with the nose). He also told me that I may have problems with my throat because of drinking too much tea! After using the nose medication for 3 weeks I felt no relief at all with my throat. So, I booked an appointment with another doctor who is now actually addressing my real throat issues.
First visit was quite impressive, clearly an excellent doctor who cares about the patient and is highly knowledgable in his field. One minor drawback - still waiting on the follow up appt call for my nasal procedure!
Dr. Levitin was fantastic, he was very friendly and actually listened which most doctors dont take the time to do.
He's very friendly and good with kids. He was efficient without making me feel rushed and covered everything. He also took the time to listen to everything I had to say, answer all my questions & to joke around with my son. (5 1/2 yrs) I feel confident in his exam & diagnosis & understood the treatment he recommended. I am very hopeful that my son will have relief soon.
Very professional front desk
Doctor Levitin and staff greeted me with a smile and were so professional. Doctor Levitin was great! Knowledgable and easy to talk to. Great doctor!
I plan to use Dr. Levitin for all my ENT needs as he was very professional and helped me with exactly what I needed.
He was great and very nice. Listened and asked questions. He also gave me a coupon to reduce the price for my prescription which was very thoughtful. I will go back to see him for sure
Dr. Levitin was great but i wish the staff were better.
Very friendly and efficient, I was out in an hour even though it was my first time visiting and I had to fill out all the paperwork. I now have a good game plan on how to deal with my gimmicky sinuses. Highly recommend!
I had Virtigo. He couln't care less about my problem. In and out in 10 min.
Kind understanding,anwered all my question. Would go back.
Excellent in every way.
I'm always happy with Dr. Levitin. He's easy to talk with, he's efficient, and he's very knowledgable. A while ago, my internist took his name down and started referring others to him after I told him that Dr. Levitin had never tried to push me into any unnecessary sinus surgeries -- where some other ENTs are too quick to operate.
Great guy, highly recommend
Very easy and very quick.
Excellent doctor! Really cares about his patients well being. I would highly recommend him to friends and family.
Very easy to talk with. Very caring with an excellent bedside manner. Reassuring.
He and his staff is excellent
I felt confident that I was getting the right diagnosis and that he was very knowledgeable about my illness.
Kind, knowledgable doctor. Unlike so many in the city, I don't feel like he's trying to sell me a procedure I don't need just to make more money. He seems genuinely interested and concerned about helping his patients get to the bottom of their problems.
Very professional and easy to talk to.
Dr Gregory was excellent and compassionate. He shows real concern for his patients.
So far so good, but I am still on the fence as to whether this is a place I will use for my ENT issues.
Very nice experience. Dr. Levitin was friendly and efficient but not at all hurried. He has a very pleasant demeanor and was thorough in his examination of me. I will definitely return for follow-up care with Dr. Levitin.
He's an excellent physician.
The doctor is very nice and attentive. The wait is a bit too long in my opinion (i waited ~50 minutes). Good thing - I was able to get a same-day appointment.
I had a recurring issue where by head, ears and jaw were always hurting. Went to several doctors and they gave me several rounds of anti-biotics which did not solve the problem. I went to Dr. Levitin and he told me that I probably had TMJ whereby my issues were also due to teeth grinding at night. He didn't prescribe (except told me to take aspirin and to look into getting a night guard) anything but did diagnose my condition correctly for which I am truly grateful.
Quick, helpful, took care of my problem at the time of my visit.
Great bedside manner and very nice. We even talked about a book I was reading for a few minutes. I didn't feel rushed, as I feel in most other doctor's offices.
He is a fine professional. I've learned much about my curable condition from both Dr. Levitin in NYC and Dr. DiPasquale in my other hometown of Tampa. I'm blessed with 2 great doctors.
Seems to really want to fix the problem/help the patient vs. just prescribing med or treatment that isn't right.
My visit was just a consultation, but I waited for over an hour. However, once I met Dr. Levitin, I was happy to find that he was extremely kind and professional.
Great guy who listened to what you had to say and genuinely cared about making you better. Will definitely go back and highly recommend.
Easily one of my best experiences at a doctor's office I've had, as well as, a doctor I plan to keep!
Nice guy, seemed pretty smart - very slow disorganized office though pretty clean I even called ahead to see if he was on time as I'm only a block away to be told he is (then had to wait 45 minutes or so when I got there (I had my paperwork already filled out too!))
Very professional, knowledgeable. Helped me with my problem.
Consummate professional. Diagnosed and treated an issue I have been having since I was a child. Thanks
I had a great experience with Dr. Levitin and thought his staff was incredibly kind and helpful. I went to see him three different times in his Brooklyn office and would highly recommend him.
Excellent doctor! Office staff is very professional Highly recommend
Fantastic Doctor. Humble, but knowledgable. Present and focused. Friendly and fast!
Too long a wait, but I liked Dr Levitin's approach and concern
very professional and polite.
Wow! This is an example of a "next level" doctor and I'm amazed that he's even accepting new patients. Dr. Levitin is extraordinarily professional, personable, knowledgeable, and seems truly passionate about his practice. He just seems like a terrific human being and I was almost tempted to ask him if I could babysit his kids because when people make you feel that positively about humanity then you just want them to be a part of your life. I am happy to settle for my status as a very satisfied ENT patient, however.
Extremely pleased and impressed with Dr. Levitin's work. I visited Dr. Levitin due to a nagging cough that had lasted for six months. I had previously consulted other doctors who basically said "sorry, nothing I can do for you; it will go away eventually." Dr. Levitin did a thorough evaluation and prescribed medicines that made my cough go away almost overnight! Dr. Levitin was very systematic about the way he considered my symptoms and developed a plan to tackle the problem. He also had an extremely pleasant bedside manner and was patient about addressing all my questions. Finally, all the members of his staff were very pleasant and helpful throughout my two visits to his office. Above all else, I give an A+ for the results. I have lived with a recurring winter cough for years, and this time around Dr. Levitin made it disappear almost overnight. If you are like me and have a nagging cough which you can't shake, I recommend Dr. Levitin highly. He clearly has a self-developed playbook for these kinds of cases that works really well.
He was very thorough and friendly.
Incredible bedside manner. Very pleasant to talk to. Highly recommended.
Dr. Levitin levitated my opinion of ear, nose and throat specialists. He was friendly, knowledgeable and he knew how to solve my ear problem!
Dr. Levitin is a fantastic doctor. His bedside manner is wonderful and he conveys a very compassionate and engaging demeanor. I was very disappointed to have waited nearly 40 minutes to see him, but he is the one doctor for whom the wait has proven to be worthwhile.
He's a really solid doctor! This is my third time seeing him and I feel he is doing all he can do to try to fix my problem and get me to a better state of health.
I think he is amazing and has a great sense of humour and fixed everything that was wrong
He's very thorough, doesn't rush, explains things clearly and is overall just great!
Everyone in the office was friendly and welcoming. Dr. Levitin put me at ease and explained each step he took while looking at my broken nose.
Doctors make me incredibly uncomfortable but this guy was amazing. I had no wait, great bedside manners, and he was very down to earth with his explanations.
Great Doctor! The staff is friendly and thorough. Made me feel right at home. Dr. Levitin explained things to my understanding.
Extremely friendly, very informative.
Very informative and positive, most impressive!
Professional and kind
Fantastic. Wonderful bedside manner, very compassionate, treated me like an actual person. It was refreshing.
I got to Dr. Levitin's office and was told when I checked in that he was running late because of a surgery downtown. The staff was really friendly and apologetic, keeping me updated about where the doctor was. They brought me into the exam so that we could get started right when he arrived. I could tell from the plaques on his wall that he is a top-notch ENT surgeon. When he arrived, he politely apologized for the delay and then got right to business, asking a bunch of questions and listening to my answers (I know that sounds redundant but let's be honest, sometimes doctors don't seem to really be listening). He checked my ears, nose, and throat carefully and answered all of my questions. I would recommend Dr. Levitin highly.
I booked an appointment a month ago and during that time he had cancel 3 different appointments. If he was unable to meet appointments during the day he should not schedule them.
I have been looking for years for the perfect ENT doctor who will take the time to listen and Dr. Levitin did just that. i'm grateful to have found him because I have been struggling for a long time and Dr. Levitin listened to my issues and he was very thorough in his explanations which I really appreciated. All those other ENT I wasted my time on never lasted 5 minutes! I always left the office confused and back to square 1. I HIGHLY recommend!!! Amazing doctor, words can't express how grateful I am, really.
Waiting time was sometimes long but the office is very nice, clean, organized staff. Once I saw the Dr he was very attentive to my concerns, took time to have a discussion about possible causes and treatments, asked a lot of questions. I'm not sure we found a good solution for my problem but I'd recommend him as a good doctor.
seemed very knowledgeable and thorough. He was pretty rushed though. He was in n out in less than 10 min.
He was very nice, cordial and quick.
The doctor was professional and thorough. He put me at ease with his bedside manner.
Dr. Levitin's bedside manners are great. He is a very attentive doctors. He addressed my issues and ruled out issues first before proceeding. If you have any problems with your mouth, throat, ears and eyes please schedule an appointment with Dr. Levitin.
After seeing many doctors for a chronic condition, Dr. Levitin has been by far the most effective at communicating to me the underlying issues and working out a comprehensive solution.
Thorough, although rushed appointment. Answered my questions, asked if I understood his instructions clearly. Good bedside manner.
Wonderful doctor! Very knowledgeable and very kind! I highly recommend him
Dr. Levitin is great. Very knowledgeable and welcoming. Would recommend him without question. See you again soon, doc!
I thought he was a great doctor I wish he would have unclog my ear right then and there
Quick and to the point, but I did not have a serious matter. Would come back in the future.
Finally a Doc who doesn't prolong my years suffering with strep throat! He saw the seriousness in my condition and I hope I will get these bad boys out!
Friendly and concerned, very impressed with this doctor on my first visit.
More than 40 minutes waiting outside. After filling out papers (first visit) and waiting for long time, the front desk person asked me if I really had an appointment.(?) Then, I spent another 15 minutes waiting for the doctor on his office. He checked my throat, nose and ears quickly and disappeared for another 10 minutes. He quickly found some polyps in my nose, quickly told me that treatment was better than surgery, quickly wrote some prescriptions and bye! NEXT!! There is a big sign in the front desk that says, "please, be patient, we're overbooked, bla bla bla". So, any negative comments, just be ready for high speed motion consultation and waiting in slow motion.
He really knows his stuff. A reallly good ENT. His office staff went out of their way to help me get a test at a hospital after I ran into trouble.
I had a horrible experience trying to get an appointment with another doctor on here and this was amazing. Quick, friendly and the doctor was simply amazing. Cannot recommend Dr. Levitin enough!
Dr. Levitin was so pleasant and helpful. He is working with me to reduce my discomfort and chronic sinus issues, and gave me a referral to a great professional for my TMJ. He was courteous, honest and willing and able to answer all my questions. I HIGHLY recommend him!
i was in a serious jam and really needed to see a specialist right before the end of year holiday. I had no idea how to find this type of specialist, especially one who would see me right before a holiday, until i stumbled on zocdoc. I was soooo grateful that Dr. Levitin and his staff could make this appointment work at the last minute. Because of my difficult schedule, i made the appt late at night and called first thing in the morning to be sure i really had an appt because i had read reviews on this doctor's office on zocdoc. the office staff could tell there was a problem with the appt and were willing to fix it. I work long hours and the ability to find doctors/specialists like Dr. Levitin, online is an amazing service!! Dr. Levitin could respond to my problem easily--it wasn't very serious but it did need to be checked.
He is one amazing doctor.
He was very patient thoughtful and not too quick to suggest surgery for my daughter until other options were exhausted. He advised us to wait to treat her tongue tie to see if her feeding issues would resolve. Later, when she had chronic ear infections, he also advised a sensible wait and see approach before recommending ear tubes. He was patient and very gentle with my baby and went into a lot of details in answering all of my questions.
very good. takes his time...listens to everything you have to say....one of a kind.
He was exactly what I hoped. It looks like he will be able to do a procedure which will change my life. very personable and knowledgable.
I was very please with his professionalism. He shows genuine concern for his patients and explains in details. Many thanks Doc
This doctor is very professional and cares deeply for his clients. He attends you very fast and is always there to answer any questions you may have. I highly recommend him!
The doctor was thorough with diagnosis, examinnation and explaining results. Extremely happy!
Worked quickly and thoroughly. Dr Levitin did an excellent job communicating his philosophy and recommending a course of action.
I felt like I was in very good hands. He was "cut to the chase" - which I like - but really thorough.
This doctor is a blessing from god, he works well with his patients and tries to help them in whichever way he can he is considerate and never rude in any way, shape, manner or form. He always puts his patients first and only gives them the utmost attention and care, i highly recconmend this doctor.
He performed my tonsillectomy and I have never felt better. What was even better was that I could tell he was proud of his work.
Dr Levitin was extremely professional and knowledgeable. Went to the office during my lunch hour. In and out in about 35 mins. Highly recommend
Very Good. Thorough. Good doctor.
Very professional and pleasant during the visit.
The waiting area was clean and the doctor nice, but on the table where he has his equipment there was a silver dish that had tongue depressors,tissues and some other used items in it. I am not used to seeing that I would think the area would be cleaned in between patients. I don't believe it was anything of infectious waste like tools or injections, but still it was very off putting. I was ushered in right as the previous patient was leaving. I would rather wait a few minutes than to see things like that.
He was casual, frank, and understanding. Made adjustments for me, which I am very thankful for. A great doctor!
He Was Nice And Easy To Talk To Made My Day Easier
Wonderful and Caring! The best bedside manner!!!
Very professional and capable!
Great all around. Very knowledgeable, efficient but didn't feel rushed, and good for a singer like me who depends on a working voice!
Dr. Levitin is an excellent doctor - knowledgeable, accessible, attentive, and patient. I'm a professional opera singer, so having a competent and trustworthy ENT is crucial to my career. I'm glad to have found him.
My visit was great......Dr Levitin was very professional and I would definitely recommend him.
Very professional and helpful.
highly recommend this doctor.
I only spent about five minutes with the doctor, so I can't provide too thorough a review on him but what I am rating is how frustrating booking an appointment with him, something that should not be an issue with ZocDoc. I've been trying to schedule a follow up appointment for the past few days-- called the Manhattan office and was told to call back because no one on his staff was in. Booked online for a day with available appointments, only to get an e-mail and later a phone call saying I would need to reschedule because the doctor would not be in. Rescheduled for the following week on ZocDoc and found out yet again that the doctor would not be in the office that week, despite having appointments available on ZocDoc. Finally had to call the Brooklyn office to book an appointment-- very frustrating. The reason I like ZocDoc is that I can make appointments without any hassle and the back and forth and different offices is a hassle. This is the fifth doctor I've found on ZocDoc and the only one I've had trouble with. Disappointing. Hopefully, the doctor will be able to help pinpoint my problems and make the trouble worthwhile.
I highly recommend this professional.
He was great. took his time to explained me everything I needed to know
he was pleasant and informative and had a good bedside manner, which is very hard to find.
Professional guy. Spent time to explain everything in detail. Scheduled another appointment within 2 weeks. Will surely come back again!
I will be returning time and time again.
Very helpful and professional. Will see him again if the need arises.
Very easy to talk to and helpful. Great office staff.
Dr. Levitin and his staff were quite friendly. Dr. Levitin was thorough, explained everything, and took time to answer my questions. He made a lot of small-talk and didn't rush the appointment. My wait time was five minutes at the most. I definitely recommend this doctor.
Very professional and friendly staff.
excellent doctor. very knowledgable and helpful with the issue i was experiencing (ear issue) and other questions i had. Its rare a doctor explains a situation in "lay person" terms. Doctor Levitin does that.
I had an overall great exp. Dr. L was very professional. Immaculate waiting area, individual rooms, etc. The staff at the Front Desk were very warm and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this Dr. to an inquiring mind.
Dr. Levitin was very friendly and on point. Definitely will refer to my friends and family.
Dr Levitin is very professional,a very good doctor who shows that he care about his patient ,he listen and respond to any question his patient have. I highly recommend this doctor.
