Dr. Levine was extremely thorough, compassionate, and professional. I have never had a physician spend that much time with me or attend to my story more thoroughly.

Honestly Dr peter was very helpful and he wasthe best in what he does his way of talking and communicating with people was in the most professional way. We even ran late to the appointment and he still accepted us ,and spent an extra hour or so to help me after his work hours is done. and it was a great visit with a really professional doctor.

Well the appointment was actually wonderful throughout most of it. He made me feel very comfortable, and it was a nice and relaxing environment. I told him a lot about my life within the first visit, but at the very endof the visit, he made a very big joke about a sexual assault I experienced not to long ago. It got quiet and awkward. Literally the session ended a minute later. It was horribly uncomfortable for me, especially as a female hearing this joke from a much older male. I wish he never made the joke.

Dr. Levine is a very good psychiatrist. He spends lots of time getting to know you as a patient and takes a very thorough patient history. He is very good at finding the right medication regimen to meet patient needs. Followup visits are very thoughtful and well planned out by this doctor who seems to know exactly what questions to ask to follow up on past issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Levine to anyone looking for a great psychiatrist in the DC/MD/VA area.

I have been seeing Dr. Levine since June 2013 and have been very satisfied with the treatment he has provided for me. Dr. Levine is always able to accommodate my last minute requests for appointments and is very responsive and easyto get a hold off. He remembers what we've discussed previously and shows a genuine interest in the events going on in my life. I highly recommend Dr. Levine!

I felt it was a waste. This is psychotherapy. It was not really psychiatry. In other words, if you think talking will solve all your issues through discussion, and you are reluctant to go to a psychologist/sociologist/counselor, this man maybe right for you. To be fair, I gave him a second chance. Even the next time around, I knew it was wrong for me. He has been in business for quite some time, so I assume this means he does indeed have repeat clients. I only speak for myself.

This was my first time consulting a psychiatrist and I was pleasantly surprised by how at ease I was in such a new, and potentially awkward, situation. Dr. Levine has a very thoughtful and calm demeanor about him that allows youto really feel comfortable expressing your concerns. I appreciated that he listened to my personal situation before applying his knowledge and advice - I feel that his approach is to work with you to develop a solution rather than to simply provide one for you. So if you have specific ideas about your personal needs, he will take your input into consideration to come up with a solution that is mutually agreed upon. His office is very nicely kept, soothing and private, so I was very comfortable talking about my "issues." I also never felt rushed or as if I were on a time constraint which added to the sense of comfort. Overall, a very pleasant experience and I am fortunate to have met Dr. Levine.

He is a very patient and understanding Doctor, as he should be with his profession. He is also the reason I keep using Zocdoc. I was having such a hard time finding a shrink that would listen and stop pushing drugson me to shut up. Zocdoc saved the day. Anyways, the main thing that impressed me was that he did not just script me up to shut me up. I met with the doctor a couple times before deciding on any medication. He wanted to make sure he prescribed (if any) what was necessary for me. The negative review above is most likely angry that the doctor WAS listening and refused to just solve the issue with drugs until he was fully aware of the patient's issue. So if you are looking for a doctor to just script you, go else where. If you want a caring, patient, and understanding Psychiatrist then he's your man. If you are looking for a way to scam scripts then waste your time angry blogging elsewhere about how hard it is to score your scripts for your recreational use. We need more Psychiatrist like Dr. Levine. I'm lucky ZD helped me find him and my OBGYN... He's also amazing! Abloom =D

It was awful. I felt worse after the appointment than I did before. I did not have the opportunity to explain why I was seeking treatment. The Dr. was more focused on the clock than on me. He was referred by a colleague of his. Big mistake.
