Dr. Alan Levine has the following 1 specialty
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Dr. Levine takes time and listens to my issues. He has great knowledge of the terms my specialists use in explaining the diagnosis to me. I have an unusual diagnosis and many other doctors seem to be unfamiliar all of the symptoms associated with this. I am comfortable with him and am able to get the help I need and leave with all my questions answered in common terms that a patient will understand. I highly recommend him.
Saw Dr. Levine for an epidural for lower back pain. Together we discussed the problem, and selected the best of three solutions. He was extremely patient, listening and answering all questions. He took my vitals, started my I V and talked me through the entire procedure. One of the best Doctor/Patient experiences I have had.
After he administered anesthesia I was left with such a sore throat I couldn't swallow without terrible pain, including in my left ear! My neck was swollen and bruised, as was my tongue and lower lip. I could barely talk.This after assuring me I would not have a sore throat. I've had lots of major surgeries, but never had this happen.
Dr. Levine is FANTASTIC!! He is one of the most caring doctors I've ever encountered. His examinations are thorough, he's easy to talk to, and puts you at ease whenever you express a concern. Whenever he detects a red flag with respect to your condition after a procedure, he advises a followup visit within a short time - not like the pain management practitioner who told me to come back in six months (inadequate followup at best).
