Everyone n the office is wonderful. They care about you, the patient. I have been a patient for several years & the only complaint I have is te time you wait BUT when it i your turn you have their full attention.
Waited two hours to see doc. Spent 5 minutes with me including shot. New patient. Triple books patients. Go to Resurgens.
I saw Dr. Leven good for a torn meniscus. I ended up having the surgery to repair it. He said that he was confident that he could fix the problem. Well, I am here to tell you that he did not. I ended up having just as much knee pain as before the surgery. PLUS I still needed cortisone shots and he recommended tThat I have other shots as well. When I asked him what they were called, he never did tell me the name. Just told me not to worry about it. Well, when my lower leg swelled up and I called the office , they told me to come in, and so I did. He didnt even have the nerve to come and talk to me. I only saw his PA. Very unprofessional! As I look back, I realize that I couldn't even tell you what he looks like because he never looked at me when he was speaking to me. He never faced me. His bedside manner is atrocious at best. Plus, he never fixed my knee problem! I don't get why some people like this man. I have met many people who would never go back to him, myself included.
Dr. Levengood performed surgeries for a right, then 2 years later, left Rotator cuff major tear. I am still in awe of the virtual painlessness of this last experience. I am still doing phys. therapy and progressing well. Life is better thanks to Dr. and staff even though wait times for appointments are awful at times.
I think Dr. Levingood and his staff are absolutely amazing. He has help me with my Shoulder Injury and gotten me back on the tennis court. Love Love Love this practice.
Was not impressed as I thought I would be, especially having saving an article in Vigor from Summer 2011. Did not spend but about 3 minutes, no examination, brought an entourage of people in the room, ask a few questions and ordered an MRI for what I knew was Arthritis bouncing off my back. He might be a good Doctor, but I will not give him another chance. First impressions count. The Girl making appts. for the MRI, her face might crack if she were to smile. Did not feel comfortable at all with this office.I felt the Doctor has enough patients that I was just another one on an assembly line.just my opinion. You might find that he is the right Doctor for you.
The staff was friendly and somewhat professional,Dr. Levengood may be voted as best but I feel that is by the ones that maybe he take up time with. I waited in the office for almost 2hrs,when I get back to the back I waited some more.Had xrays an injection and was not fully explained to why,what to expect and most of all was it going to help.Not really sure of my diagnosis.Came back for a followup waited again for about 1 and half hour waited again for him to come in and ask a question move my hip around and say followup in 6months.I realize I should have persued some answers before I left but,I was so disappointed until nothing really hit me til after i left that he had done absolutely nothing to amke me feel better. He makes big money being a specialist I feel he should take up more time with explaining and being concern.
I had a shoulder pain that I was concerned about. A friend recommended Dr. Gary Levengood. His staff was great from the person answering the phone to the trainer who showed me some exercises. Doctor Levengood, checked out my shoulder and felt I only had strained the rotator cuff. He gave me and injection and had his trainer show me some exercises. A week later and I am pain free and back to golf and working out! Great place to go.
A trip to the ER on a thursday night with my 9 year old to find out he has a broken collar bone and would need surgery and to see your Orthopedic in the morning. We didn't have one so I started calling from my insurance list only to find that they were all full friday and couldn't see us until the next week!!! I made it down the list to Dr. Levengood and told my story AGAIN and the sweet receptionist explained that they would fit us in that morning as an emergency. I was so relieved!!! Dr. Levengood put him in a special collar bone brace, re-xrayed every two weeks until it healed. NO SURGERY!! He said prompt attention and proper treatment can help to avoid surgery in many cases. THANK YOU Dr. Levengood!!!!!You are now at the top of our list.
i went to sports med south a few weeks ago for a problem with my elbow that started for no reason. after being seen the same day i made my appt, i realized why my coworker suggested this office. dr. levengood saw me and after telling me my xrays were normal and i had tennis elbow, he explained to me why tennis elbow occurs in ppl that dont play tennis such as myself, and gave me an injection that im sure has cured me. then, one of his staff members educated me further on the problem and showed me how to make sure it doesnt come back with some exercises and use of a brace. their website says their motto is beyond better, and thats exactly how my elbow feels now!! thanks dr. levengood and staff!!
Dr. Levengood, a million thanks to you and your staff! As you know, James plays college tennis and while home on break, he had shoulder pain. Your front desk called me when an appointment opened. Julie scheduled a Saturday MRI and Curt gave him PT to do at school. I'm very grateful to you and your excellent staff for getting him back on court.
I recently had a bunionectomy at sports medicine south. I found the entire experience very pleasant. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. They answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable about my surgery. I would recommend them to anyone!
My husband was having terrible shoulder pain and Dr. Levengood's office was recommeded to us to take care of my husband's shoulder pain. My first impression was that it was a very busy office, but everything was outstanding from the first appointment to recovery after surgery. The Physician Assistant Harris was very caring in what was going on with my husband's shoulder and explained everything in detail so well that we were very informed of what was going on with his shoulder. We scheduled an MRI as suggested and sure enough my husband hade a tear. Dr. Levengood preformed surgery on his shoulder and did an excellent job. My husband was finally getting relief and we couldn't have been happier with the results after recovery. I would recommend anyone to his office to be seen for any orthopedic need. Our family will defintely be staying on board with Dr. Levengood and his staff. What a professional establishment.
I recently had a family member that was in need of an Orthopedic Dr. We had a friend suggest Sports Medicine South/Dr.Levengood's office.Upon the initial evaluation, to surgery through the post op visits. The staff, PA's and Dr. Levengood were all very professional, competent and caring. This was a pleasant experience--as this type of experiences go.
After trying about everything for my knee pain I decided it was time to see a doctor. After talking with my neighbor I made an appointment with Dr. Levengood at Sports Medicine South. At my visit the staff was very friendly as the nurse took me back to an exam room. Dr. Levengood first tried a conservative method of treatment with an injection and a brace but when my knee pain persisted, I opted for surgery. At my pre-op appointment the staff explained to me the surgery and what I should expect when the surgery was completed. At my post-op appointments the staff was very helpful in explaining why I was feeling the symptoms I was feeling and what to expect for the rest of the process. SMS did a great job with my surgery and I continue to progress with my rehab currently.
I am a recent patient at Sports Medicine South. I was injured in an automobile accident and was treated by them for my neck and back. I was really hurting and called for an appointment, but was told that the doctor was booked, but if I was willing to see his PA they would fit me in that day. I had no problem seeing his PA so I was able to be seen that day. I waited for about 1 hr and 15 minutes before they came to get for x-rays and to put me in a room. I tell you it was worth the wait. The staff members were so kind and educated me on what was going on with my injury. I was treated as though I was the only patient there. I was not disappointed with his PA either. I felt as if they were just as concerned as I was about getting back to my way of living and I truly felt the compassion from them. I am still rehabing my neck and back with such relief. I have and will continue to refer friends and family to Sports Medicine South. Thank you for helping me get my life back.
Harris Patel is an Awesome PA. He is compassionate with his patients and listens to them to get the best overall treatment for them. He is on time and leaves little room for waiting any longer than needed to be seen
Harris Patel PA is a great individual, He takes time with his patients and really listens to them. He is interested in his patients well being and compassionate with their healing.
I am not even really sure where to begin. I have never had to write a negative review in my life of any place but I couldn't let this one slide. I found it interesting that the entire staff was very young and very blonde. Not sure what was going on with that but I found most of them to be uneducated and inexperienced. I never in my life thought that I would wait over 2 hours when having an appointment. I DID. Also, the real kicker is when I did see Dr.Levengood he shook my hand said my x-rays looked better and said see you in two weeks. He was in there for 20 seconds. I know he spent a great deal of time with some of the other patients as I could hear them through the walls laughing and cutting up. I was treated like a lousy workers comp case that wasn't worth anyone's time. I can honestly not believe the man didn't even apologize for me having to sit there 2 hours either. Looks to me that if you are one of his regulars that he can make a buck off of that you may be treated more like a person than the person off the street with a broken bone and a workers comp case. Please consider choosing another place where you won't waste your time and money.
read the other review and see if it does not sound like he wrote it. Big reputation, yet not very caring. In facts makes jokes about your pain. I a ...
This guy spent all of 6 minutes with me.. and In his "report" noted 4 different "test's" that he preformed on me ,,, none of which happened.. Basicily he lied....
Dr Levengood and his team at Sports Medicine South are five stars and worth any drive you have to make to be there. He spends so much time with you, ...
My whole family has been treated by Dr. Levengood at some time or another and I can't imagine going anywhere else. Dr. Levengood was kind and direct with his diagnosis and treatment reccomendations without being pushy. His staff is the best i've ever seen and everyone remembers your name the next time you come in and treats you like family. All I can say is that if you are needing to be seen by an orthopedist the this is where you want to go.
Dr Levengood performed my knee surgery and I'm here to tell you I'm doing wonderful. I have scheduled my other knee surgery. I can't thank him enough.
I had such an amazing experience at Dr. Levengood's office in Lawrenceville, GA. That staff is the friendliest I have ever known, the doctor and his PA are so professional, knowledgeable, and caring. Thanks for fixing my knee Doc!
