I felt comfortable throughout the entire thing and still do in recovery. I am very happy with the outcome of my nose...it is something i have wanted since i was a pre-teen so i want to thank you for making it happen. Much love to all of you

Dr. Leventhal treated me for a painful ear infection on the very same day that I was in such pain. He made a diagnosis, called in some prescriptions and reassured me that my infection was treatable. He also calmed my catastrophic thoughts and arranged for a follow up visit several days later. His treatment helped to start clearing the infection and pain in a few hours. His medical treatment and patient care are exceptional and very much appreciated. I highly recommend Dr. Leventhal!
Thank you for your skill and kindness before, during and following my mothers surgery. (of course i am writing this on behalf of my mother :) ) I feel (and all m family feel) like she cannot thank you enough.
Pleasant visit. Loved the advanced technology, especially the computer charting. Very high-tech. My first time meeting with Dr. Leventhal and he was awesome. Thanks!
