Specialties

Dr. Joel B Levine has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

The best GI guy

I had the privilege of watching Dr. Levine working with staff and patients. He is an absolute professional and demonstrates great compassion and knowledge. I later became a patient of his for a brief period and must say that his diagnostic skills are exemplary as his bedside manner. He earned my respect.

Felt like he couldn't be bothered with me

I felt Dr. Levine had better things to attend to than listen to my stomach woes. He never signed on the computer to find out anything about me and maybe looked at the folder he was holding once. Never even felt if I was swollen never touched any part of me! He diagnosed me by just looking at me and leaving the room. Amazing (not)

One of the Best in his field

I was transferred to Dr Levine with a 105 degree fever, rectal bleeding, and not long to live. This was in 1979. I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitus. I was in UConn hospital for 3 months but he did not remove my colon. I am now 66 years old, and I still have all my parts in tact. Most other doctors would have taken the easy way, and I would be wearing a colostomy if alive at all. He is without a doubt, one of the best in his field.
