Patient Reviews ? Write a Review
This man was my doctor growing up and never once was there a problem. I always saw him every check up and he even helped when in second grade the nurse gave me problems about the ADHD medication dosage claiming I needed a higher dosage. He was fundamental in getting her fired from her position. He cares for his patients and these reviews really shocked me.
This clinic over book patients. We have waited anywhere from 45 mins- an hr and 45 mins!! Don't except to be able to make an appointment for the same day if your child is sick and you want to be seen asap. The front desk is very unorganized. They are not warm and makes the office feel un-inviting. The nurses are average, nothing special. I haven't had any bad experiences with them. If they call another patient before you, its because the front desk again, is very unorganized. We've never been seen by Dr. Levy himself, except when my son was born at the hospital. He's usually seen by a practitioner, I believe named Howell. She's decent. He was also seen by a practitioner who's regularly at the lake worth location. I can't remember her name, but she's Indian background I believe. I didn't care for anything she said much. She's religious and jumps quickly to assumptions, which is very unprofessional. Quick tip: once you check in, ask them if you have any paper works because they will give them to you late, which will push your appointment back even further.
I am very unhappy with this doctor. The wait is ususally almost an hour or more. Also, you never get to see him, just his pa or np. You have to get a different appt for well checks, medical refills, and sick visits. He makes you wait a long time to see someone, but if you are a few minutes late, you have to reschedule. If you have a well visit scheduled and are sick then you have to reschedule. Don't waste your time with them. Find a good doctor instead.
First of all out of the 5 times going to this doctor for my daughter, which by the way I had appointments every time, and I would get there at least 15 minutes early, 4/5 times it took more than an hour in the waiting room alone. Do you know how hard it is to make a 6 month old stay still for over an hour??? Especially in that TINY office in hurst. 2nd of all, until I saw this page, I had NO idea whatsoever what Dr. Neil Levy looked like, because he was NEVER at the office and my daughter was NEVER seen by him! She was always seen by a Nurse Practitioner. 3rd of all on our last visit to this doctor, I showed the NP, which I did not know was an NP until after the visit when I called the office to ask questions, anyway, I showed her something on my daughters back that was concerning me, it was a dimple that was pretty deep, she looked at it, got her computer sat there for about 10 minutes, looked up at me and said your daughter has spina-bifida. She told me she would lose control of her legs and become paraplegic, lose control of her bladder, and have fluid on her brain. She did not say it was a possibility, she said SHE HAD IT! She then told me she needed to go have an MRI done before any treatment or anything further could be done. So I became pretty hysterical once I got home and googled the condition and had someone else there to take care of my daughter so she did not seem me become distraught. Anyways I took her to get an MRI the next day, explained to the anesthesiologist what was going on and what the NP had said and she looked at me like I was crazy and said she would do the MRI to relieve my mind but she was 99.9% sure my daughter did in fact NOT have the disease. After the MRI had been read the anesthesiologist told me I might look for another Doctor and go into further investigation with the whole NP situation. I immediately found a new pediatrician for my daughter and would NEVER recommend Dr. Levy to even my worst enemy. Save your time and your money and please find your child a good pediatrician.
I love Dr.Levy he is the best couldn't ask for better care. The staff and doctor really cares about you and your child and about doing what is best for the long haul.. There's no bandaging a situation in this office, I love it..
I've been taking my son to Dr. Levy's office for the past 6 years. The receptionist is super nice but other than that, I've had nothing but problems with this office. You can make an appointment, but you better be ready to sit for about one and a half hours before getting into a room and then another half hour til you're seen by a doctor. Then once the Doctor comes in, (which in the last 6 years, I've only seen Levy himself ONCE), she doesn't make my son feel at ease at all and I don't like that. A doctor should be funny and friendly for a child that is scared to be there in the first place and bored to tears from having to sit and wait for so long. The doctors aren't rude but they definitely aren't friendly or outgoing. I just renewed my son's insurance and decided to change doctors finally. I did a lot of research before deciding on another doctor. I'm hoping that I won't have to deal with the hassles I dealt with for so long at Levy's office. And to the nice receptionist, I will miss you the most!All in all, I think they would be able to manage their wait times better if they would stop scheduling the same time slot to 20 different people and didn't expect each child to only tie up a room for 10 minutes tops. They over schedule big time.
After six years of putting up with this doctor I've finally come to my senses and will never take my daughter back to him. Every time I make an appointment it is 1.5 hrs before we get to a room and then usually another 30-45 min. before we are seen. Dr. Levy speaks down to the parents and the children and belittles concerns. The nurse practitioners he employs are not much better. There is one PA at the Lake Worth office that is actually very good. I wish she would move to a different office.
Dr.Levy has no respect for his employees nor does the office manager, Dorman Hill. They talk to the employees like they dont even matter. Someone has to stop this.
Can i please rate a 1/2 star, actually a big goose egg would be better....Stay away form this place!!
My kids were patients since '06, but over the years I feel they've gotten worse. In four years I've seen Dr. Levy twice, however the nurse practitioners have been great...Except for the last one. She took no steps to make my son feel comfortable and talked to me like I was an idiot. I paid a $25 co-pay for her to tell me he was fine he just had a cold. Mind you, it took an hour on hold to get this appointment in the first place. I was so annoyed I switched doctors....yes, after four years. We went to the new doctor and found out my son had a major sinus infection, the beginning of an ear infection and early symptoms of the flu. I really wanted to love Dr. Levy's office, but I'm so glad we left. I really think they treat patients with Medicaid much better than those who don't have it.
Dr. Levy actually was our first doctor for our daughter. He came to the hospital when she was born and was very personable and friendly. We continued to visit his office and saw various nurses, all of whom were very helpful and nice. The office waits didn't bother me too much. I work in the healthcare industry, so I understand waiting for the most part. I noticed the office seemed to have a very high amount of Medicaid patients, which also does not bother me, I'm no better than anyone else. When my daughter was refused a vaccination because they are reserved for Medicaid is basically what made me leave. It's very disappointing because the doctor and nurses were very nice. My wife continued to call to see if they had received the vaccination and after talking to his staff they told us to go to the health department. It wasn't until my wife went to have my daughter's vaccination card filled out that we found out that we are not one of the select few to have the opportunity to receive vaccination reserved for those who have Medicaid. To me this cries out of an incompetent staff and office manager. It's a shame that a good doctor has to be ruined by an inexperienced office manager. So if you are on Medicaid, the red carpet will be rolled out for you, if you pay for insurance like I do, find another doctor.

HE is between 3 places the two doctors offices he has and the hospital..... i only meet him when i had my baby thats it other then that i see his assistant doc
Been coming here since my children were born my girls are now 3 years old and my son is 7yr. I love it I don't care what people say about them I have never had issues with them. I mean if your nice to them you will be treated nice. However, I feel Dr. Levys office puts up with to many pts that are rude I mean seriously some people either have forgotten there manners or they were brought up with none. I'm just saying some people should really think of how they would like to be treated before they start running there mouth. LEVY PEDIATRICS YOUR AWESOME KEEP UP YOUR HARD WORK!!!
For the first time i can say,"i am truly impressed and satisfied." Dr. Levy has been my child's pediatrician for a long while. Every visit is always a smooth visit. Thank you Dr. Levy for taking care of my son.
Dr. Levy really went too far today! I took my nephew to his appointment today for an autism diagnosis. We waited for over an hour in the exam room and by this time my 2 year old was beside himself. I couldn't let him play on the floor because there was food on it and used medical equipment and the floor was FILTHY! I finally got desparate and made a laytex glove balloon. He wanted nothing to do with it and threw it on the floor. After a meltdown Dr. Levy comes into the room asks how I am. Then accidentally kicks the little glove balloon. He says to me, "First of all, Don't EVER touch my things. Secondly, you gave your child something very dangerous." I was confused at first not understanding why he was talking to me in that manner so I said, "I'm sorry, I don't understand. What?" He continues, walks closer to me in an already small exam room and says, "I said, Don't ever touch my things." I appologized and offered to buy the box of laytex gloves thinking its because I touched the other gloves or something in the box. He then says, "You are missing the point," Walks within a foot from me looking down at me and continues,"Don't you ever touch my things." I then ask him if I can just get the referral and leave. He proceeds to tell me he doesn't refer patients to specialists because he is an autism specialist. I was stunned. I then ask, "So the only way to get a specialist is if I switch doctors." He then says, "I think that would be best." I then ask him to back up because he still hasn't moved and I am VERY uncomfortable. I ask him again to make sure I was hearing him correctly, "Are you refusing to refer him to a specialists?" He then says, "No. I am not referring him because he is no longer my patient." I ask him to back away so that I can leave. I inch forward where he then turns to the door opens it, goes to the office staff and tells them that my nephew and anyone affiliated with me is no longer his patient. The man is CRAZY. I feel bad because his nursing staff is wonderful. His Nurse practioner with reddish color hair is WONDERFUL. NO person should have to be subjected to this. DISGUSTING behavior. He lied in his add. He was NEVER voted DFW's best pediatrician!
I was last in about a year ago and when I went in a few weeks ago, the office had undergone a major change. None of the familiar faces were there. But I did get a same day appointment and the nurses and office staff are really nice not like the previous nurses and the rude older lady. I was even able to see Dr. Levy. I used to wait at least an hour to get in a room but the wait time was cut to about 15 minutes in the lobby and about 15 minutes to see the doctor and I very pleased with the changes. One parent in the lobby said she was happy with the changes as well. I hope the clinic continues to keep up the good work so I can keep coming here.
I was a little apprensive about my first visit to Dr. Levy's office after reading the reviews but it actually went very smoothly. The staff were professional and friendly. Dr. Levy took plenty of time with my daughter. He answered all of our questions and had a good bedside manner. The only thing I wish he would have done was when he was examing my daughter I would have preferred that he explain what he was doing while he was doing it just to help put her at ease. I knew what he was doing but she is only 10 and I could tell she was a little nervous. Overall I thought the visit was great.
I never met Dr. Levy, I met his PA and she was very nice, I didn't like the fact that everytime I had an appointment I sat in the waiting room for over and hour and then when we finally did go back to the room we would sit there for at least thirty minutes, anyway, I wouldn't recommend this doctors office to anybody....
My overall experience was horrible. I can't believe that this man is still in practice. Because of him my son is having surgery next month at the age of 10 months. He is horrible and has caused my family much pain. Please do not take your babies or children to this man. He needs to have his business checked and his license taken away.
We also had problems with the staff getting medical records. We were given the run around for months until I had to have a blow-up with the o/m. We are still having problems with our bill. We have TWO insurances and cannot get anyone to file with both of them. I have tried emails and phone calls. All I get is another bill. You would think the practice would like to get paid,
