Dr. Kenneth M Levy has the following 2 specialties
- Geriatric Medicine
A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

My elderly mother is one of his patients. I needed to speak with him regarding a serious issue with my mother. I called his office twice and left messages. He never returned my call. I mentioned this to the facility where my mother lives, I was told not to waste my time calling because he would never return my phone calls.
Please do not visit this doctor. He seems very helpful at first, but in the end, the quality of medical care provided is not adequate. I had an unsuccessful surgery with Dr. Levy. As a result, I needed to spend a year and see several other doctors to take care of the issue. Performing in-office surgeries is a business that many doctors participate in for revenue, and not for the patient's benefit and unfortunately Dr. Levy is one of these kinds of doctors. All the doctors I saw afterwards told me that they never would perform the kind of surgery I had in the office as it was quite involved. They all said they would only perform it in a hospital. I am not the kind of patient who cares about office waits, receptionist demeanor or even a doctor's bedside manner. If a doctor is competent and truly cares about the patient's well being, thats all that matters to me. But Dr. Levy is just plain incompetent, and I am not exaggerating when I say that returning to his care would truly make me fear for my health. Please do not make the same mistake as I did.
Dr Levy has extremely poor bedside manner and does not even seem interested when listening to answers to his questions. You feel like you are just answering a normal survey to get medication and very lack luster when explaining medications and illnesses. He does not show concern or interest in the patient and seems to only be interested in getting the script filled and you out of his office!! if it was not for my therapist, I would not continue to see him. Unforunately he is the only psych at the location. I highly discourage using him!!!
I saw Dr. Levy when he was still accepting patients before restricting his practice to geriatric care for elderly patients in nursing homes. He was great! He listened, was easy to get in contact with and most of all, was willing to work with you and supervise if you wanted to try a new med. Very competent. I wish he would go back to seeing individual patients!
