I recently had cataract surgery in both eyes. I was extremely pleased with the result. My vision has greatly improved so I no longer need glasses or contacts. My husband has been a patient of Dr. Levitt's for several years and recommended I see him when I began having vision problems. He's a wonderful doctor. I'll be a patient for life.
Dr. Levitt has given me and my spouse medical and surgical eye care and we are greatly pleased with hi and his entire operation. He is friendly, compassionate, understanding and treats you specially. His staff reflects his attitude and their attitudes are also warm and friendly. It is a comfortable place to visit. No matter when we arrive, we are always seen in a matter of minutes. His screening staff is very knowledgeable and reassuring. He is one of the finest doctors I know or have had personally. He always takes time to ask if there are any questions or concerns before he will leave the exam room. He never appears in a hurry. He readily explains areas of concern or intricacies of the disease or procedures. He clearly knows you and asks about family, events in your life as well as your medical needs. We have already referred two of our friends to see him for eye care.
Had my cataracts done 2 weeks apart and am seeing better than 20:20 in each eye! I am 71 yrs young and why did i wait this long. I tried to purchase the $5000 multi focus lenses but Dr Levitt insisted the Standard lenses would be best ($99 each eye). He was absolutely correct. He als o oversees my wife's more serious eye issues from 57 yrs of diabetes and she is improving. He is a great doctor and I highly recommend him.
Dr. Levitt and his staff are very kind, professional and knowledgeable. Dr. Levitt is thorough and explains in detail what he is doing, what he recommends and the reason(s) for the recommendation. When you leave the office, you know you are in great hands --I couldn't be happier with my experiences so far.
