The wait time was very long. I was in and out of the waiting room betweeen seeing the nurse and seeing the doctor. Besides that everything was great. The doctor seemed like he really cares about your wellbeing. He actually sits down with you and discusses everything.

At first I understood what people meant about the staff not being friendly. They were kind of short and cold, but after a while, they actually seemed pretty nice. I have zero pain tolerance and the female doctor who saw me was very gentle, informative, helpful and kind.

Private office with a very friendly and compassionate staff! Not a factory!! I saw the PA who was wonderful and allayed my fears. I have not been to an GYN for several years, and I was not reprimanded for waiting so long.

I absolutely dispose this doctors office. Not Dr. Levy as much but his staff is absolutely incompetent. I can't begin to express my frustration, countless phone calls without a call back, months trying to get a script for birth control. Don't waste your time here

I started seeing Dr. Levy when I found out I was pregnant as my regular OB/GYN no longer did births. After every visit with Dr. Levy, i became more and more irritated. He was very hard to understand, speaking too lowand too fast. When we came to him with specific questions about the birth, we felt rushed and on many occasions he actually stood with his hand on the door in an attempt to leave before we felt he had helped to fully answer our questions. We expressed our interest in having a natural birth and felt no assurance in his help when he made comments like "most woman say that" with kind of a laugh after. He never really listened to what we wanted and seemed to forget us after each visit. We did not trust that we had our best interest in mind and finally at about 28 weeks pregnant we decided to transfer to a different doctor. He made it very difficult and refused to give us my medical records after multiple requests. When he finally sent the records, they were missing some vital information regarding blood testing. Our new practicioner decided to just do the testing again, as they had reached out to Dr. Levy's office as well and to no avail. I would not recommend this Dr. for pre-natal care and birth of your child as he has only his own agenda. I did go on to have a healthy natural birth and I am so happy I made the decision to separate myself from this doctor.

Dr. Yakov Levy was professional and very informative. I have been looking for a gyno in NYC for about 3 years now, and I have finally found one that I actually love. Going to the Gyno is never a fun taskand Dr. Levy made me feel comfortable and briefly made me forget I was even at the doctor's. The medical assistant was also great and friendly as well! Highly recommended!

He is very unprofessional he speaks very low and if your results are abnormal he does not care how he communicates it with you. He will call you late at late to give the information that he himself does not understand.He doesnt care about you he only cares about the money he is making.

Great doctor, but front office is somewhat unprofessional. He's probably often overbooked, the wait time is ridiculous. Receptionists should not be addressing patients as "honey, sweetie," I'm not your friend or relative. This is a doctorsoffice. They're also brusque on the phone. Great doctor if you have the time to sit and wait. I don't, hence I'll find another.

Dr. Levy delivered my first baby. He is very calm, patient and responds thoroughly to all questions. This is probably why the wait times at the office can be long! He had already delivered a few other babies when I arrivedat the hospital and he waited for me to deliver naturally which was appreciated and came by to check on me the next day. I always felt like I was being very well taken care of and he kept a close eye and ensured I had appropriate tests for some risks that I presented. My only complaint would be wait times and the fact that the office doesn't accept debit/credit cards (not sure if this has changed). Given that most health plans run off of debit cards now this makes things a bit inconvenient. But top notch from a service perspective.

The doctor was adamant that there was a generic form of the birth control I wanted, which does not exist. Weeks of fighting with my insurance company over this was not worth this visit.

The doctor himself is great, however you have to get through his rude and unaccommodating receptionists. I was trying to get my prescription refilled, however was disconnected 13 times and the receptionist had nothing to say-- she just simplyput me on hold and then disconnected me. I will be finding a new doctor.

Dr. Levy is great, however if you ever need to call into the office for any reason, you will experience problems. I couldn't get a call back and I called about 5 times and left messages. That is just ridiculous, especiallybecause I only had a question about my oral contraceptive prescription. I will not be going back, not because of Dr. Levy's services, but because of how his front office runs.

Dr. Levy was pleasant, but the wait was a little long. The chaos of the reception area was unacceptable. I probably will not be returning to the office to use as a permanent doctor. The overall experience of the reception took away from the consultation with Dr. Levy.

He told me he would do me the favor of giving me a IUD even though I wasn't married or with kids yet. What is this? The 1950's? He also had a coughing fit in the middle of my yearly exam.It was weird to have someone uncontrollably coughing while I was in stirrups. He had to leave the room and come back in while I just waited with my feet up. It was uncomfortable.
