Specialties

Dr. Steven H Levy has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    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.

Patient and families beware! This Dr is an enabler and will not listen to the concerns of family members. If your loved one is an addict do NOT send them here. Dr Levy is impatient, rude, and will send them with a script and then on their way.

Therapy is their only saving grace

First of all it took about a month just to get an evaluation appointment. Then several weeks to see a therapist which is a pre-requisite for seeing a psychiatrist which I was not happy about because I'm already in therapy. Most of the staff are courteous although they don't seem to act like they are at work, more of "playing" work. Now as for Dr. Levy. He asked me very little, we talked for about 15 minutes of which he wrote down no notes. I told him exactly what meds work for me as I've seen many psychiatrists my whole life and have been giving every med under the sun for all my conditions. I told him that one specific medicine works really well for me but that it only works on a higher dose than what is normally allowed. However a good doctor will always listen to their patient and they are allowed to prescribe me as much of something I want. When I saw him the second time I told him yet again the dosage was not good enough and he would not budge. I found another Dr and saw him today and he was fantastic. He was very pleasant but he at least asked many questions, and allowed me to speak. He gave me a higher dose like I asked (although not as high as I genuinely need) and he said he would raise it if it don't see results from this dosage. I spent at least 45 minutes with him and he wrote down an entire page on me unlike Dr. Levy who will hand out prescriptions but doesn't actually care at all about the patient and is more concerned with drug seekers (despite me wearing a three piece suit during our meeting he still acted untrustworthy of me) than treating someone with a legitimate life long condition and a natural tolerance to most meds for whatever reason. So after my next appointment I will be canceling all future appointments. I mean come on he hardly looked me in the eyes and I had to extend my hand for a handshake pretty aggressively before he would reciprocate. It was nice how local he was but he's most concerned about his career and money than about his patients. Also usually a psychiatrist will give you their personal number or at least email for emergencies. He does neither. Avoid yourself the headache of the headache and try and find someone else. The bottom line is, if a patient tells you that they've been on a certain dosage of a certain medication before they need to listen to the patient in this situation. Especially when they can probably request a full history from my previous doctors to confirm. This guy is all about the book with no care for the patients or their needs, I guess some PhDs think they know it all and forget that everyone they treat is a different person with different circumstances and different brain chemistry.

He does not seem to care and doesn't appear to want any information from you except to answer his questions. That said, his diagnosis appears to be correct and the meds he put me on are likely the best ones. I will return for scripts but if things don't continue well, I'll look for another Dr.

Uncaring and lacks professionalism

Just switched medications and was having some very nasty side effects. I called the doctor to see if my meds. needed adjustment. He still hasn't returned my call. I had to call a pharmacist to see what I should do about the next dosage. She gave me advice which took about a minute. She recommended that I call the office again in the morning. It has passed the time for my next dose,so I had to guess what amount of medication to take or even if I should take it at all. Still no word from the doctor. I was told that it sometimes takes 48 hours for him to call back because he has 1500 patients. It is unethical to take on so many patients whenhe can't attend to them all. Called the recommended crisis center,even though not in crisis to see if I could talk to a doctor there about my next dosage. I called twice; nobody answered. Thank God I wasn't in a life or death situation. Very rude during the intake meeting. I should have seen it from the beginning. Please do not use Dr. Levy,
