Dr. Harold Levinson, MD

Psychiatrist

Professional statement

*Our office accepts Medicare with a secondary carrier. We do not accept Medicaid. Harold N. Levinson, M.D. is a world-renowned psychiatrist and neurologist. He is credited with bringing about a dramatic medical breakthrough in the understanding, diagnosis, and successful treatment of dyslexia and its many related signal-scrambling disturbances of the inner ear and its supercomputer, the cerebellum, the lower brain of humans and the highest brain of most animals. The original insights and content within his many books and research papers dealing with the origins, treatment, and interrelationships of dyslexia, learning disabilities, attention deficit, impulse/hyperactivity and anxiety or phobic disorders have appeared in scientific and educational journals and have been reviewed by popular media as the New York Times, Science, TIME, Smithsonian, etc. After more than four decades of research based on the detailed examination and successful medical treatment of over thirty-five thousand children and adults, Dr. Levinson’s pioneering insights and discoveries have recently been independently validated by scientists worldwide and are currently referred to as “highly original” and “decades ahead of its time.” As a result of Dr. Levinson’s extensive research, there is now renewed hope and often rapid and dramatic help for all children and adults with the above-mentioned signal-scrambling disorders, as well as those patients with related but differently named inner-ear/cerebellar syndromes, i.e., dysgraphia (poor writing), dyscalculia (poor math), dysphasia and dysnomia (poor/impaired speech and word recall), dyspraxia (poor balance/coordination), pervasive developmental delay (severe dyslexia), Asperger syndrome (social dyslexia), psychosomatic disturbances (headaches, dizziness, motion sickness, etc.) and many other previously perplexing disorders included within this work. For the very first time, there is now medical help for a series of distinct major processing disorders in which Dr. Levinson discovered the often coexisting but hidden “minor” presence of dyslexic or inner-ear/cerebellar-determined signal-scrambling symptoms. These major disorders include mental retardation and Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, brain injury, and autism. It is now possible to envision cures and even prevention of all the dyslexic-related disorders, as well as significantly enhanced benefits for those with “mixed” or combined major processing and “minor” signal-scrambling disorders. Formerly clinical associate professor of psychiatry at New York University Medical Center, Dr. Levinson is now director of the Medical Dyslexic Treatment Center (also called the Levinson Medical Center for Learning Disabilities) in Great Neck, New York.

Dr. Levinson appears to be as he is portrayed in his bio and from comments from past patients. He's very experienced, is an excellent listener and is conservative in his methodology. He's down to earth and doesn't speak down to hispatients. I appreciate his step by step ways of gathering the necessary information from me.

Dr Levison uses a physiological instead of psychological approach to find out what problems or phobias you may be having. I found his way of thinking 'outside the box' very thought provoking and helpful.
