Dr. Levy is an excellent doctor.

I had my right ACL replaced in 2008, and it's in terrific shape (really, better than it was before the injury). So, I went back to him in 2013 with a torn left ACL. And I'm a few weeks into recovery, and the knee is doing quite well. I'll send him photos of me on a mountain later this year!

Best Arm Guy in Manhattan

A Medical Magician. I came to Dr. Levy with both - unknown at the time - a herniated disc in my spine and a badly torn rotator cuff. Obviously, Dr. Levy is a shoulder and arm guy, but he still had the care and concern to get a FULL diagnosis of everything prior to rushing into shoulder surgery. Soon thereafter, Dr. Levy did my surgery - with ZERO implications and with a better-than-textbook recovery. He - and his staff - followed up with phone calls, were kind, courteous, full of smiles and warmness. With Levy even knowing when to throw in a zinger of a joke. --and all this despite being deemed a medical 'special case' due to the uniqueness of my injury. Wait was never long, from the front desk to the time you leave every individual on his staff was 100% thorough with everything they did, and he has pretty nifty glasses. Just saying. I MORE than recommend Dr. Levy. I believe seeing Dr. Levy should be a NECESSITY if you have any issues with your arm or shoulder. Hope this review puts you in the right direction.

Oustanding surgeon

Dr. Levy performed two surgeries on me, labrum repair and ACL reconstruction. The shoulder was 6 years ago and I have not had any issues or pain since. I am now 6 months into knee rehab and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. To those about to have knee surgery be aware there is no magic bullet to recovery. I have done some form of rehab 6 days a week for the last 6 months. That said, Dr Levy is an amazing surgeon.
