Nice man but overcharges & keeps you coming back!

This doctor & his wife are very nice people and there is little to no wait time to see him. Once the exams starts, he is very quick and won't do all procedures the same day so you have to schedule another appointment. He will even try to get a third appointment out of you! Then the claims back from the insurance indicate he bills for the same procedure multiple times under different codes so he can get paid as much as possible. This was the turn off and I won't be back.

if you want someone who is going to push products on you to make an extra buck, he's your guy!

Was pretty uncomfortable the whole time. I went in about one issue and he spent about 5% of the time focusing on that, and then 95% pushing products and telling me I have all these problems that I dont have. He gave me an injection I didn't ask for/need/want, and then charged me $150 for it. All in all, would recommend you look elsewhere for your derm needs. I don't think it is a coincidence that there is never any wait time.

Barely a physical exam, inaccurate diagnosis and expensive

I went to Dr. Levis after having ulcerations around my nose and mouth, but not cold sores. I wasn't sure if it was acne or something else. I went to the office with a full face of makeup, expecting to take it off but Dr Levis didn't ask me to. He barely looked at the problem area and prescribed me acne medication. I said I'd had acne before and this seemed different, but he dismissed my concern and ask if I was having a stressful time and if I was in a stable relationship. I went for a second opinion and was diagnosed with (and successfully treated for) impetigo, by a doctor who actually did a physical exam and charged my insurance company half the price.
