In trying to get an appointment, I first left a message at the office, which was never returned. When I called again, the receptionist told me that for a new patient, the wait was over TWO months. I asked what someone does when they need help? Her response was "a lot of people need help and we get a lot of calls." Wow.

Dr. Levin is a pathetic, money-focused psychiatrist more concerned with whether he's being paid enough than serving his patient's interests. He does push pills like they're candy and then blames the patient if he/she has a drug interaction or doesn't find the drug to work effectively. Worse still, Dr. Levin often doesn't remember what his patients tell him and has to ask repeatedly over the course of time about key aspects of his patient's life or background. In my case, I have a severe chronic illness that causes me constant depression and anxiety and yet Dr. Levin could never seem to remember what my disease was or why I couldn't sleep at night. In the end, he treated me brutally and without compassion because he didn't like having to deal with getting medications approved from my medical assistance plan. He even pried into why I hadn't purchased or leased my own car when he was prescribing enough drugs to cause me to be a genuine hazard on the roads. Also, considering that I was on medical assistance, how would I have the money to afford a car? In the end, I invested years in a doctor who completely disappointed and abandoned me and who prescribed medications that caused tremendously uncomfortable reactions to which he was insensitive. He took the fact that these meds didn't agree with me as a slight to his professional judgment when I simply wanted him to help me find relief for my symptoms so that I could get rest. Now he has left me without the necessary meds I need and no psychiatric help all because he doesn't like dealing with my medical assistance plan and feels he's not being paid enough.

The office manager treats you like a mental patient. The Dr. is not good with patients that are sensitive to drugs/ have side effects from drugs. \r
He believes more in medication then in people and I turned out be a fairly drug sensitive

I was referred to Dr. Levin by my counselor. I am so happy I was. Dr. Levin knew exactly how to treat my situation and diagnosed me with depression and anxiety and works in conjunction with my therapist.

Dr. Levin was very caring and compassionate to my situation. He is easy to talk to and often gives me good suggestions. He also has a good sense of humor.

All medications I received, I was counseled on by Dr. Levin. He knew exactly what to prescribe and doses were very mild. Through discussion with me, only one had to be increased and that was the best option. He also fought with my insurance company to get my medication paid for.

I highly recommend Dr. Levin. I feel privelaged to be treated by such a reputable professional and a genuinely good person.

Every patient gets only a 15-minute appointment, no matter what. This is nowhere near enough time for Dr. Levin to get a full and accurate picture of all of a patient's symptoms and stressors. And certainly not enough time to carefully monitor the effects of the very serious meds he's prescribing.

Dr. Levin is extremely drug-happy and prescribes addictive sedatives and stimulants like they're candy. Even a basic antidepressant can cause really serious effects like mania or suicide and needs to be carefully monitored--which can't be done in 15 minutes a month.

Dr. Levin is extremely irresponsible, which is a very bad thing for someone entrusted with people's health. Especially when many of those people are already just one step away from disaster or death.

I do think he actually really knows what he's doing. His knowledge of psychiatry is not at all lacking. He just doesn't seem to care.

This Dr did not take enough time to get to know me before deciding on a diagnosis and medication. The medications he prescribed were not appropriate for me, and ended up causing severe issues. I would not recommend this Psychiatrist to anyone.

Do not use this psychiatrist - Warning!! He is simply a medication pusher and does not check in with his patients to see if they are having personality changes while on medications. Do yourself a favor and find a good counselor who will work closely with you to help you with your issues. This advice just might save your life!!

PS- The first rating is obviously from a person comletely hyped-up on a medication and on a dosage that Dr. Levin should clearly lower based on his irrational comments. Good luck.

Dr. Don is a fine psychiatrist who practices a plethora of people skills. He can calculate a prescription in no time at all. It's like he's a genious,man. I guess one better be close to genious if he/she is shrinking brains. I had a dream that he, the spitting image of Freud, and I were walking on a moonlit beach searching for the answers to life. However, all we find are shells,gulls, and sandpipers. Anna Freud comes along and demands that her father take her on the boardwalk so she can enjoy the rides. He immediately obliges, thus proving the Electra theory of a strong bond between father and daughter. I walk away in tears knowing that he chooses Anna over me. Dr. Don is well versed in a wide variety of topics. He's what you would call a carpe' diem doc.
