My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
I am a board certified primary care physician and a proud graduate of the University of Arizona Medical School in Tucson. More than 10 years ago I left a traditional primary care practice to develop a more integrated approach to wellness. I personally created a shift in my own wellness practice, exploring the linages of food to good health and changing what and how I ate. As medicine evolves and reveals more of the opportunities we have – whether through eating, hormones, supplementation or other shifts in habits – we can better help our patients rediscover their health. I am especially keen on the gut-health link and have spent more time learning the intricacies of its impact on our bodies and the way we feel. I also work with a number of chronic care and complex patients, support those dealing with stress, as well as those with a variety of hormonal imbalances.
I’m proud to be an MDVIP-affiliated doctor for patients from all over the Phoenix metro region, but especially from the cities of Gilbert, Mesa, Chandler, Tempe and Scottsdale. We are often surprised at the drive some make to seek our care. We are honored to work with so many individuals who seek solutions beyond the quick fix.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Levitt
I don't know where to start when telling about how much Dr Levitt has made my life better. I have been seeing her for so many years. I have a chronic pain condition and I am a difficult patient to treat. But, she is always willing to try new ideas and she listens to me when I make suggestions and ask questions. She really cares for her "flock".
I am so glad I am able… See more
I first met Dr. Levitt many years ago at her practice in Tempe. She was my family Primary Care Physician, prior to our moving to Gilbert. Fast forwarding at least 20 years. While visiting a friend, I heard her praising her Primary Care physician. I asked for her doctor's name, and from that moment on, my life was about to change. Her name; Dr. Sandra Levitt. Having suffering with IBS for many… See more
I was brutally raped. My husband filed for divorce. He said I was damaged.
Dr. Sandra Levitt in Gilbert, AZ engrossed a holistic approach to my healing process after I had abandoned maintaining my physical health. I was simply in an abyss of anguish, depression, and anxiety with myriad physical health issues.

I am diagnosed as Bipolar Manic Depressive. It took thirty years for medical science to develop the right kinds of medication to aid in my recovery. Eventually, I was administered three psych meds that seemed to help but still I didn’t feel quite right. As an alert physician, Dr. Levitt was always curious as to what my psychiatrist was doing to help me. After discussing my stalemate, she… See more
Thank you Dr. Levitt for your thoroughness and your patience in helping me find the foundation of my depression. Your natural approach to wellness is refreshing and made me a believer that our bodies can usually heal themselves if we give them what they need and treat them right. So grateful I found you in a haystack of doctors in the Phoenix area.
I began my journey with Dr. Sandra Levitt in January 2017. I am a registered nurse and I was looking for a functional/integrative medicine physician to be my partner on my journey to optimal health and I found such a partner in Dr. Levitt. By conducting an excellent history and physical exam, she determined I was gluten intolerant. With changes to my diet, and the addition of appropriate… See more
Dear Dr. Levitt,
You have been my doctor for almost 20 years! I so appreciate your care and concern. You have helped me deal with a chronic condition since 1999 and I always knew you would have answers to my many questions or would do research for me. It was not a problem to wait past my appointment time to see you because I knew that you always had the same concern for your other… See more
My husband John and I were attending an Open House for MDVIP's Dr.. Wilson located in Redland, CA and a Rep. for MDVIP was attending this event. Since we were moving to AZ shortly, we inquired if they had a Dr. close to Gold Canyon, AZ. The rep. informed us that Dr. Levitt was accepting new patients, so we made an appointment to meet with Dr. Levitt. John and I waited for about an hour… See more
