Ratings for Dr. Ian H. Levy
Dr. Levy misdiagnosed me with Graves disease. He put me on a very aggressive high dosage medication that catapulted me into hypothrodism. My hypothyroid state was so severe I lost muscle capability in my appendages and ultimately had to go to the hospital for possible kidney failure. This was a result of failing to obtain the necessary blood scans to support a diagnosis of Graves - simple, easy to do but he failed to do it. It is the result of his disinterest in his patients not caring to monitor just collect payment and see me in8 weeks later By then the damage was done. It is believed that my thyroid was destroyed as a result of this - in other words loss of a body organ. My symptoms presented a case of thyroiditis and my thyroid would likely have restablized. It is 2 years later and my body is still recovering with continued muscular issues. Dr. Levy may have endocrinology in some specialized area, but he is not competent to treat thyroid. I do NOT recommend him to anyone.
I was a patient of Dr. Levy for a few years. While under his care, I was treated for Hashimoto's and hypothyroidism with synthetic hormones (CRAP). He completely ignored my complaints about weight gain, hair loss, foggy thinking and told me I need to eat less and exercise. I asked to be put on Armour instead of Levoxyl and he said, "I can put you on it but it won't make a difference. Your levels are fine." That's the LAST time I ever talked to him. I let him prescribe Armour for me and I promptly found a new doctor. Armour started to make me feel better within 3 days. Levy is narrow-minded and doesn't LISTEN. I DON'T recommend him.
