Dr. Neil G Levitt has the following 2 specialties
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.
- 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.

I was a new patient. Takes along time to get an appointment if your a new patient. Told me one thing but when I requested my medical records he had said something else. Basically made me sound like a hypochondriac and a psyc. patient. I will be finding a new Rheumatologist that actually seems to care not mention they didn't even document my medical records correct.
Never in my life have I met such a rude, condescending, and yet totally ignorant doctor. I'd been seeing one of the other physicians in the office until they left the practice and ended up being handed off to Dr. Levitt. Big mistake. After examining me for a few minutes and asking a couple of questions, Dr. Levitt handed down his diagnosis. This, despite the fact that he was unable to access the test results from my previous visits on his computer. Really, doctor? You're having trouble with your computer, and instead of asking someone for help, you're going to diagnosis autoimmune disease without reviewing the blood tests? Well, you should have asked for help because your "diagnosis" was absolutely, positively incorrect. Even when I told you you were wrong, you insisted I didn't know anything and your gut feeling was right. Ha! A first year med student could have done better. Seriously, do not waste your time with this guy. He's a total jerk that thinks he is way smarter than he is. And btw: several of the reviews (the good ones) are obviously bogus. Nobody would give this guy five stars. Nobody.
I have surrounded myself with good doctors for my whole life. I will not add this doctor to that mix. He is abrupt, dismissive, short and thoughtless. I agree with another person who indicated he treated her as if she were clueless. He left me feeling worse than when I started, which is hard to do considering how I've been feeling, and made me feel as though taking steps towards better health was a fishing expedition. On top of that, the staff is do rude I can't believe they have jobs. The women at the front desk are the WORST. I should've held out to see anyone, anywhere else.
I thought that Dr.Levitt was one of the worst doctors i have ever talked to. He had no idea who i was, even after calling me. Had to say hold on so i can look at you xrays. I had to remind him of our conversation that we had in the office and he had no memory of it. After waiting to see him for over 45 min. and hearing him yell at staff and a sch. problem...makes me think much less of him. Staff was nice but he was rude to them and not helpful during our conversation over the phone.
