Ratings for Dr. Elliot M. Levine
It is wonderful dealing with a small office and with people who know and care about you. No pressing numbers forever to get to where you need to be. I have found the staff warm and caring and the doctor and PA outstanding. I have never had to wait more than 10 - 15 minutes for an appointment and I can not say that about other doctors' offices. I feel I am getting outstanding care.
Dr. Levine is patient, kind, considerate, and very accommodating. He takes the time to listen to you, and explains things thoroughly. He is the ONLY DR. that I know of who calls with follow-up lab test results within a day of having received them. The office staff is efficient, caring, and pleasant. I rarely have to wait more than 15 minutes for my appointment. My spouse and I would highly recommend this very qualified internist and his associate nurse practitioner.
The staff is exceptionally rude, especially the woman that is the main receptionist who usually takes calls and collects co-payments. Every single time I have called about an appointment, prescription refill, or anything else this woman has given me a problem and talks in a rude, belittling way. Also there seems to always be extra fees I seem to owe besides my co-payment when checking out that don't make sense. I can't imagine why someone with this attitude is working in this sort of work.
Dr. Levine is a "Park Avenue" doctor. He really doesn't care about the patients; once he was "hiding" behind his staff because he was going on vacation and was quite annoyed because we had the gaul to call of an unplanned emergency. The staff is rude true, but the office is so cheap they dont even get paid benefits, and further, doesn't take credit cards (I know I can't beleive it either-guess that extra 1% makes for another vacation). Dr. Levine is indeed a vain little man with an oversized ego and Napoleon complex. He may engage you with supeficial chatter but you are just another fee to him.
The staff was rude and disrespectful. The staff switched my appointment from the doctor to a nurse for my annual appointment without telling me what they did and the cost was the same as the doctor's cost for the exam. I feel it was a bait and switch operation by a greedy doctor.
The office staff is the worst I've ever encountered. They were rude and lied to me. ! I was deceived. I made an appointment to see the doctor for an annual physical and my appointment was switched to see a nurse for the exam without my knowledge or permission. They charge the same price for an annual exam whether the doctor or the nurse performs it.
