Qualifications and Experience
My practice is based on the belief my patients' needs are of the utmost importance. I am committed to meeting those needs. Taking the time to listen and getting to know you as a patient with medical concerns and also as the unique individual you are is my priority and the key to being the best physician I can be. As much as possible I want you to relax, have a good time, and maybe even a laugh or two during your visit. Whether you need a one time consultation or ongoing medical care I am here to help. Please be aware at present the office does not offer vaccinations, or blood and urine testing. After a comprehensive history and physical exam, I will recommend and order the lab tests both you and I agree are necessary for maintaining optimal health, or diagnosing a new medical condition or complaint. My staff and I will do all we can to assist in finding an outside lab for you such as Quest Diagnostics that is conveniently located near your place of work or where you live. We will also help you in getting the vaccinations you may need and finding the right specialists, when indicated, so you receive the best care possible.
Verified Patient Reviews
Bizarre questioning like - do you drink? maybe dont drink as much, etc. Equipment from the 70s. Seemed confused as to how to be a doctor.
I booked an appointment for my dad with Dr. Levine because he had great reviews on ZocDoc. My dad had a great experience, and was convinced that he should make this his regular doctor. But it has been months since his visit where the doctor made him do several tests, and he has yet to receive the results or any follow up whatsoever from Dr. Levine's office despite numerous phone calls and voice messages. Disappointing to say the least..
He is very thorough and takes lots of notes.
Dr. Levine is great! I highly recommend him!!
Dr. Levine May be the nicest doctor I've met. He spent a long time with me, wanting to get to know the "whole person" not just treat the symptom. He spent well over the time most doctors do. Very calm, reassuring and funny. I feel so lucky to have found him and am rest assured I am in good hands with Dr. Levine!
I would recommend him. He's a good man - and thorough.
Like it says on his business card, "he's a good man, and thorough." He is extremely friendly and I never feel rushed through my visits with him like I have with other doctors. He is also very easy to get ahold of by phone or email.
He was excellent. Very personable, thorough and attentive. I highly recommend him.
What a wonderful doctor. I couldn't recommend highly enough.
Dr. Levine is very thorough and reassuring. He is easy to talk to and I get the feeling that he truly cares for his patients. My only complaint is the waiting room time. I waited about 45 minutes on my first visit and over an hour on my second. Worth the wait though.
The visit went very well. he listened and took his time. It was almost a Dr. Oz experience. Now I see why he has so many positive reviews.
Dr. Mike is a cool cucumber, very smart; without the baggage of arrogance. He is thoughtful, compassionate and kind of a funny guy too. Dr. Levine is one of the best doctors I've had the privilege to meet and be under care of with one exception. My brother is a doctor too he just lives far away, so in my brother's absence I have Dr. Michael Levine. Lucky me! Oy, I could do worse?
Good overall, but quite a significant wait—delayed about 45 minutes beyond my appointment time (made worse by the fact that I had a headache). Also, be warned that this is a small office and they don't do blood work, so that does add some degree of hassle to getting a physical, but luckily there's a Quest Diagnostics within a few blocks from where I live... Dr. Levine seems nice though!
so far best doctor.
Very genial, relaxed manner.
I highly recommend Dr. Levine. I use Dr. Levine as my general care doctor, and his services have been invaluable. A couple months ago I severed my Achilles tendon, and out of an abundance caution Dr. Levine wanted me to get an ultrasound as part of my pre-surgery clearance to look for a possible blood clot. At first I thought this was a little a over the top, but I am glad he did, because they did find a blood clot, and I was able to have it treated before it would have caused some serious damage. Dr. Levine is also accessible via phone and email when you need him. This is a huge plus when you are dealing with doctors with in NYC.
Very courteous and professional. Has good advice and is otherwise interesting.
Dr. Levine was very KIND and extremely empathetic.
Once again, very professional and reassuring.
It was great
DR LEVINE WAS GREAT! HE TOOK THE TIME TO EXPLAIN PREVIOUS BLOOD WORK RESULTS 9LINE BY LINE). HIS EXAM WAS VERY THOROUGH.
very good experience.caring doctor.
Besides his vast knowledge and experience,Dr. Levine posseses an extraordinary disposition and natural kindness that are healing in itself. His sense of humor and sincere interest in his patients make of him an A+ Doctor of the Healing arts.
Great bedside manner
Was very happy with my first visit. Dr. Levine made it very personal which is exactly what I look for in a primary care doctor. Highly recommend.
Great doctor! Ill be back!
Great! Prompt and thorough. Great bedside manner.
Very Professional and thorough.
Though he's been described as weird, that adjective only really applies to Dr. Levine if you consider it weird for a physician to spend an hour with you so that he can get a complete picture of your medical history before making any conclusions. He is funny and friendly and any doc who quotes "The Big Lebowski" on his business cards is OK by me.
Dr. Levine is very patient. He did take time to talk to you. that was why we waited a bit long. He also answered all my questions. Highly recommended.
Great first visit. He was personable yet very thorough. I will definitely be returning.
Great doctor. Highly recommended
Dr. Levine is a Godsend. Great listener, kind, compassionate and has a great sense of humor. Anyone reading this should consider themselves fortunate to get an appt. with him.
Great Doctor! Easy to talk to and really cares. A wonderful find!
Highly recommend. Very professional and very personable.
Very thoughtful Doctor, respectful of patient's knowledge and seemed very willing to go the extra mile.
I thought his manner was a bit creepy, strange man. He kept me waiting 45 mins then said hi and walked out again, in, out, kept saying ill be with you in a few mins. Oh and I was the only patient in the small office, I won't go back
He's a nice guy and seemed to be thorough.
Dr. Levine is unlike almost any other doctor I've seen. He spent more than an hour talking about my lifestyle and medical history. If you're looking for a doc who will give you the time that your health matters deserve, this is your guy.
Anyone lucky enough to Have Dr. Levine minding their health would surely try to keep him as a special secret. Dr. Michael Levine is the BEST.
A great and personable doctor.
Good and thorough doctor
He makes you feel at ease and part of the whole process.
Went for a physical/new doctor visit and spent over an hour chatting about my history with Dr. Levine. I have never experienced that kind of care and, frankly, didn't know it even existed. I highly recommend Dr. Levine!
After one visit with Dr. Levine, I left feeling as though I had found my doctor. I've moved a lot over the last few years. From St. Louis to Las Vegas and finally to NYC and haven't had a chance to establish a relationship with a primary care doc. Not that I would want to anyway, since most of my interactions with health care providers were lessons on just how insignificant I am and how I am an insurance number and not a person. This is not the case with Dr. Levine. I was immediately made to feel comfortable by his assistant Sequoia. And when I met the doctor, he was attentive and knowledgeable. He didn't lecture but got his point across that there were elements of my lifestyle I could change. We chatted for about an hour and a half discussing everything from baseball to my medical history all the way back to five years old (I am 37). At no point did I feel rushed or uncomfortable. Dr. Levine is empathic, knowledgeable, and I'd wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone.
Today was my first visit with Dr. Levine. He's extremely knowledgable, thorough, terrific bedside manner and I will continue to go back to him. Great Doctor!!
If you are looking for a new General Consultation Doctor, then Dr. Levine is definitely the right choice. I came in for a headache, and he took the time to get to know everything about me...I mean everything. You can tell he actually cares and wants to get to know you, which is very important in a general doctor.
I've seen Dr. Levine a few times now and will continue to visit his office whenever the need arises. He is funny, easy going, and allows you to communicate your needs and concerns in a very relaxed environment.
Great bedside manner! Very detailed and cares about the patient. A+
My experience was good.
Dr. Levine is cool and knows his stuff.
I scheduled an appt. through Zoc Doc and the doctor sent me an email that I should please re-schedule the appt. via an email...
Way cool dude. Get 'im if you can.
Intelligent, impressive and personable.
Very knowledgeable and spent time to ensure all concerns were addressed. Would highly recommend.
Just awesome! They don't make doctors like this anymore. Dr. Levine spent much time and gave me a very thourough examination. He is quite knoweledgeable and I'm quite fortunate to have him as my internist. I highly recommend.
Dr. Levine is one of the most thorough physicians I have ever encountered. There is no rushing through the appointment even if it takes an hour to get through everything. The office visit is always a pleasant experience.
Great doctor. Never rushes you, always listens, explains everything and always courteous and makes a conscious effort to help patients feel comfortable.
Wonderful bedside manner ! He asked the right questions - great doc!
This is a quirky doctor who knows what he's doing nonetheless. He's a good man, and thorough!
I actually thought it was too good to be true. But he really did see me right away. And he was very thorough and kind. He's a very good listener and has a relaxed manner.
Dr. Levine is excellent. Both my visits have been great so far. He's personable and jovial, an excellent doctor I would recommend to anyone looking for a general practitioner in Manhattan.
We had a great 1st visit...very thorough.
I was disappointed that after such a long wait, I was only told at the very end of my visit that they don't do blood-work right there in the office. Really unacceptable not to be told that right away when I'm visiting for an annual checkup.
Excellent bedside manner, knowledgable and amiable.
Dr. Michael I. Levine is a pleasant and very attentive person. He is very knowledgeable in his field. I'm glad that he is my doctor!
I have gone to doctors who are rushed, distracted and just don't care. Dr. Levine is different. Dr. Levine spent a lot of time with me. He was very patient and attentive to my needs. To find someone who is truly caring and passionate about helping others is hard to come by. I have the utmost faith and trust in his care!
Great doctor. V
Very caring, attentive doctor.
He was very kind, attentive, and thorough. He really makes a point to get to know you and does not rush the apptment. I will definatly go back to him.
Great encounter! Will highly recommend him as a PCP.
It is always pleasent to see Dr. Levine. I never have any complaints about my visits with him. He is my kidney specialist and a friend. We even had some laughs today. Thanx for asking ZocDoc. I will miss his assitant though. He has a new one actually another Dr. from the Ukraine.
He was thorough and clear. He ran the necessary tests and he will find the issues. I highly recommend him to anyone searching for a new primary care doctor or specialist.
Once again I was welcomed in a friendly manner by the doctor and his assistant. His assistant always makes friendly conversation and makes me feel very comfortable as always. The doctor always goes above and beyond his responsibilities. They dont only let you know that your health is important but they also treat you like a friend.
It was the first vist and even though it was late in the evening, he still spent a considerable amount time to know every detail of my medical history and review all the information in my medical report from myother doctor. I went to see him as a specialist but now also consider switching to him as a primary since he seem to care more about my overal health than my current primary.
took his time with me and went over all of my lab results. showed genuine concern for his patient. his assistant was friendly and made me very comfortable and had a great attitude. they both belong in the field they are in and not only because of thier education.
I've never had a more comfortable doctor visit. Highly recommended!
Unlike many other doctors who always seem to be in a rush and try to 'hurry you through' your appt., Dr. Levine really listens to your concerns, answers any questions, is upfront when he doesn't know (and helps you with a referral to a specialist if needed) and takes as much time as needed to address any issues. I really like him and will continue to see him. I just wish that his medial assistant would be a bit more on top of her game.
Best doctor's visit ever. Dr. Levine seems to genuinely care about people and love his job, and he also seems to have an unusual depth of professional knowledge and experience to back this up. He's funny and personable-- things I normally don't really look for in a doctor-- and these qualities augment rather than interfere with his professionalism. His next two appointments after me cancelled so he spent over 2 hours really digging into my medical issues. I'm recommending him to all my friends. Need I say more?
Dr. Levine was warm, compassionate, and unhurried. I highly recommend him.
Excellent visit. My kind of doctor. He met with me for 2 hours and patiently answered all of my questions clearly. He went over all my test results with me line by line so that I could understand everything before making decisions about moving forward.
Dr. Levine epitomizes the word "doctor." It was my first visit and he was very easy to talk to. He spent about 90 minutes with me and did a thorough examination. I am ecstatic to have him as my General Practitioner and on my medical team.
I selected this doctor because he had evening hours. However, seeing Dr. Levine as a patient quickly became the worst experiences I have ever had with a doctor. One of the doctors he referred me to - someone he said he trusted - said there are much better doctors she could refer me to; doctors that she would actually go to herself. I think that says it all.
Dr. Levine is a very personable and down-to-earth doctor. He took the time (almost 1 hour) to carefully and patiently listen to all of my concerns and to perform the appropriate examinations. Looking back, he reminds me of one of those family doctors in the old movies that provide to their patients such a level of personal attention that seems to be unrealistic in the real life. However, that level of attention and caring REALLY exists and he has proved it by orchestrating an extraodinary consultation and building trust with me. Highly recommended!
Thorough, and a good man.
Lived up to the stellar reputation!
Found him very thoughtful and easy to talk to.
It went very well, he's very nice.
Very pleasant experience, once again. He really spends time catching up with you and I never felt rushed.
Doctor Levine was incredibly approachable, accommodating, and compassionate. I was so impressed with how accessible he was that I decided to make him my primary care physician.
Dr. Levine really gets to know patients in a holistic manner. He learned about my entire health history and was sure to point out anything that was medical and even psychological in nature. Excellent primary physician!
Good visit; Dr. is very attentive and sensitive to patient's needs.
Very thorough, great personality.
My experience with the Dr. was pretty good; he had good bedside manner, was thorough and admitted when he didn't know about something. His nurse, however, was very young, unprepared, and seemed to be still learning her field.
He is a character! very personable and gets to know his patient.
Fantastic -- really took the time to get to know me and my medical history on my first visit. Clearly a nice guy, which goes a long way. Nice office - whole process very user-friendly.
Dr. Levine was incredibly thorough and easy to to talk to. He made my visit very comfortable and informative. He seemed genuinely concerned about my medical history and I couldn't recommend him more!
No wait time, minimal paperwork for a first time patient, and a very pleasant bedside manner made for a very efficient and easy appointment. I would definitely recommend him to anybody.
Dr Levine was very professional and caring. He was very easy to talk to and I would definitely recommend him.
Extremely thorough, dedicated, INTERESTED doctor. Pleasant, patient bedside manner. Will definitely return.
He is so personable, caring, and intelligent. Just what you want in a doc!
Even though the wait was somewhat long, Dr. Levine was COMPLETELY worth it. He was unbelievably friendly, funny, and easy to talk to. He is truly a one-in-a-million. What a great find!
They don't make doctors like this anymore --- he took the time to talk to me, find out my history, and did not rush through the exam in any way.
Dr. Levine is a very good examiner, a very cool person, and very easy to get along with. I felt comfortable the whole check-up, got some good health tips, and talked a lot of baseball! He's always available to be reached by phone or text message.
Dr. Levine was awesome! He addressed all of my concerns, provided great guidance, and made some great recommendations for specialists. Dr. Levine genuinely cares about the well-being of his patients and sees to it that all of your concerns are addressed. Best doctor I have seen since moving to NY.
GO SEE THIS MAN! Great doctor, highly recommended. 5 stars or thermometers or whatever. He's a good man, and thorough.
Dr. Levine was extremely professional, friendly, and thorough. He spent a large amount of time taking a comprehensive medical history and had an excellent bedside manner.
Dr. Levine was amazing. He really took the time to get to know me. I personally hate going to the doctor but I look forward to a long, healthy relationship with Dr. Levine.
I Thought Dr. Levine had an excellent personallity and it was clear that he cares about people. He needs to get more into the computer age, but he has that country doctor feel that I really liked. We just talked for 20 minutes before we got to the exam. And Dr. Levine wants his patients to understand his journey, which is a level of honesty that is unique among doctors.
Very friendly and attentive. His solo practice is new, so there is a bit of an improvisational feel to it (he subleases space and his name is not on the floor directory). Nonetheless, he seems like a solid doctor. Definitely someone who listens.
Very friendly and took a great deal of time to get to know me and understand my situation. Seems like a very good doctor.
I saw Doc. Levine on my first visit. He was kind and thorough and gave me all the time that I needed to discuss my kidney concerns. Excellent doctor! This is my new primary care office!
He made me feel very comfortable and at ease.
