SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Good service.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

I was very satisfied

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

My visit was rushed and impersonal, and I left with more questions than answers. The doctor seemed more concerned about performing procedures himself than finding solutions that worked for me and my schedule and circumstances. I definitely won't return for follow up care and I won't recommend this doctor to others.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Good

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Doctor looked at my MRI, read my comments, heard what I had to say and suggested that what I thought I was dealing with might be something different. I was referred to a different specialist within the clinic.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

The visit note on myHealth doesn't have any detail explanation.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Dr Levin took time with me & explained everything in terms I could understand & he was very caring.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

He pretty much told me that my health issues are my problem, there is nothing that can be done for my pain and don't come back. Note I did not ask for any pain meds (nor do I want them). He did not even try to investigate why my back/hips were in pain.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Terrible experience with doctor. He did not listen or seem to care at all about the pain is was and had been experiencing for the last month. He offered no advice when I asked how to proceed. Best comment - "everyone has back pain" - no compassion or interest in my case at all.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

very caring and thorough

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

I felt very confident that Dr. Levin would be able to help me get to the root of my problem and would consult with other specialist when necessary to provide me with a solution to my back and leg pain which have greatly deminised my quality of life.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Very good.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

There was not a detailed follow-up plan after I was sent to a radiologist for his opinion.
