Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Levitt has a way of making you relax and feel at ease. He is a confident doctor and I always leave his office knowing because of his expertise, that I'll feel better soon.
I really liked Dr. Levitt and think he seems very knowledgeable about my skin condition. However, I waited more than an hour past my appointment time, which I had deliberately made in the morning so that I could get to work. When I asked to speak to an office manager, I was told he wasn't in. But then I asked for his phone number and called it and he picked up, so the staff was obviously not telling the truth. It was extremely frustrating and disrespectful.
He is very thorough, professional and kind.
Great doctor, but disgusted I had to wait two hours after my appointment time to see him.
Have been visiting this office for 8 years and find it excellent!
It was great. A resident came & took all the info, then Dr. Levitt came with 5 residents to talk about my symptoms & treatment. The only thing for me was that the examination room was very small, so 7 people in it was a little over-whelming & a bit distracting for me. when I go for a follow-up appointment I will ask that only 1 or 2 the most of his residents be in the room.
Dr. Levitt is great. The wait time is too long.
He is really great! It was kind of a long wait though, close to an hour, before I was called in.
The office takes a long time to call you into the exam room sometimes, but Dr. Levitt himself is an amazing doctor who can relate to you and overall just acts like your friend while still being your doctor. I've been seein him for many years and I highly recommend him.
He was great, his staff was very nice and professional. However, I sat in the waiting room for 55 minutes...very long. I try to be understanding of that if it happens occasionally. This was my first visit to him, and I will return.
After waiting to see Dr. Levitt for more than 40 minutes, he took less than 3 minutes to examine me only to recommend me to another doctor. He said he can remove the growth on my chest but he doesn't want to do it because he wants someone else to do it. He recommended an aesthetic sergeant. I guess if I were to look on the positive side, he was honest about his lack of experience in removing a small growth.
My first time visit with Dr. Levitt was beyond perfect. He is very knowledgable and wastes no time. I am sooooo glad I found him. He is very friendly and bedside manner is amazing.
He a caring related person. Asks and responds to questions. I felt seen and heard and well cared for.
It was the worst experience of my life.
One word ... PERFECT!
I was cured of acne, when I had no hope!! God bless him.
I have visited several doctors trying to find a dermatologist like my old one. Thanks to insurance, I had to leave him. Some of those saw me so quickly they didn't even see my face, others didn't examine my skin all over. I was so happy to find a thorough, careful and lovely doctor to take care of my skin. He understood my cosmetic concerns as well as skin cancer concerns. His staff was great as well.
Better than my previous dermatologist. Would def go to him JL again
I know Dr. Levitt truly cares about people. He is very thorough, and goes above and behind to make sure I'm in good health.
Super dermatologist--extremely knowledgeable, very nice, takes time with patients, and very compassionate.
very knowledgable excellent doctor
he was very knowledgeable
There was no follow though. Will not be returning to this doctor again!
He is great and very knows a lot. He has a lot of medical students practicing with him.
Excellent. He has been an very kind Dr and everyone at the office very nice and helpful. I am very please with all the service.
Very knowledgeable, helpful, extremely intelligent and professional. I can't say enough good things!! Not only did he make quick, informed clinical decisions, but he also took off a few skin tags in the office (which I thought was not really medical but more cosmetic) at the time of visit, for free, without requiring another appointment! I felt so healthy and taken care of walking out.
Visit was short. Dr Levitt answered my concern very quickly and put me at ease. However I felt rushed during the appointment.
Very thorough and friendly doctor. Accomplishes a lot in one appointment.
He was attentive and thorough
He is obviously an extremely knowledgeable dermatologist who was thorough. Excellent!
I was very pleased with my entire experience with Dr. Levitt and his staff. Everyone was thoroughly professional and friendly throughout, and I enjoyed the opportunity to be of assistance to Dr. Levitt in his teaching of medical students and residents.
Excellent doctor. And highly concerned about melanoma surgery follow through.
It was fine, he is very professional and very good. I have seen him before and have total faith in him.
Great! Best derm I've been to in years. most derms will only let you ask about 1 or 2 questions. He answered everything and very quickly yet thoroughly. would definitely recommend! wait time is a little long, but worth that you don't have to make multiple appointments, staff is super friendly and he really knows his stuff. he makes you feel very normal and comfortable, no matter the ailment! +1!
Terrific direct and very knowledgable
I don't appreciate the long waiting...but very much like Dr. Levitt.
Dr. Levitt is amazing. He diagnosed me within few minutes, where three other dermatologist failed (three biopsies). He implemented a threatment that is very effective.
My situation was not complicated and probably one office visit and prescription ointment would suffice but it was a very pleasant visit!
Great doc, caring professional
The Best there is'
Very nice. Attentive.
I wish the wait wasn't so long.
I felt very confident that his recommended treatment would help alleviate my condition.
Very professional and friendly.
He's great--very much about a patient's health--that's his priority and I appreciate it.
