I tell my friends that Dr. Levinstone is like a dog with a bone. When he suspects something is not right, he keeps looking until he finds the source of the problem. This is how he found my cancer. He did not like the way some of my standard tests were looking, so he sent me for more tests and more tests, until they found the problem - a 12mm cancerous tumor right where my stomach met my small… See more

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Levinstone
Dr. Levinstone has been my practitioner since prior to 2000., and prior to MDVIP. He was always accessible and always enjoyed some political back and forth during my check ups which was much better than just talking about my overall health. In 2003, I was diagnosed with the chronic version of Guillain-Barre Syndrome (CIDP) which is an autoimmune disease that attacks the nervous system making… See more
Dr. Levinstone saved my husbands life 5 years ago. My husband had a Staphylococcus Infection in his spine. We had been to the local hospital three times and they sent him home all three times with new reasons why we had pain in his shoulder blade and chest.

He explained to a resident over the phone one weekend that the hospital gave my husband meds that had bad interaction when used together. Then talked him through what… See more
After complaining about some minor back pain a few years ago Dr. Levinstone ordered a series of tests and exams to explore not only the cause of the back pain but to be sure there were no other related issues. These test discovered a kidney tumor that proved to be cancerous. The cancer was totally unrelated to the back pain. Dr. Levinstone arranged for kidney surgery within three weeks which… See more
In 2011, I showed up at Dr. Levinstone's office feeling tired. My symptoms were: I can lift weights at exercise class, but I keep getting worse at running around the track, and I get tired walking from building to building on my campus, which is unusual for me.. I was 57. That's it. Many, many family physicians would have said my symptoms were too vague to do anything about.… See more
I had watched Dr. Levinstone treat my mother in law for 20 years. He was always such an attentive, caring physician, he had time to listen to her because that was just as important as her physical complaints. When I moved my own mother to the area it was Dr. Levinstone I chose to be her physician too. I couldn't have been more pleased.
When my husband and I finally moved to the… See more
