Reviews

  •   Buyers beware. Their website says they take most insurances. When I called to make an appointment, they said they'll take my insurance. When I confirmed with my insurance company, they said that they are out of network. After I call the clinic back, they clarified that they are out of all insurance networks but would submit the insurance claims on their patients' behalf.

      I admit: I'm the biggest baby when it comes to foot pain. I whine and cry like a toddler. I conveyed this to Dr. Levi by my whimpering when I sought out his services for a small shard of glass in my foot.

    He was kind, tolerant, and took care of my foot situation.

    Highly recommend to all of the other foot babies in NYC, and remember; when your Mama or Papa tells you not to "walk around barefoot around the house" dont walk around barefoot. Thanks Dr. Levi and staff!

      I had a great experience with Dr. Levi.  I had some ball of foot pain due to a bruise to my sesemoid bone.  he quickly was able to provide treatment for it and recommended i get custom fitted for some orthotics.  The last DPM i went to did not notice i had high arches, but Dr. Levi spotted that right away.  After getting fitted, i havent had issues while walking and I think it's been mostly cured.  Would highly recommend Dr. Levi for any foot issues, my wife also goes to him as well and was how I was introduced to him.  She's sprained her ankle a few times after stepping in potholes and he was also able to treat her.

  •   I had a wonderful experience with Dr Levi.  I had a painful bunion on my foot and he suggested surgery.  I was very nervous at first, but he discussed his approach as well as the results following the surgery and I knew it was the right thing to do.  The surgery was easy and the recovery has been fairly easy as well.  It's 3 weeks after the surgery and I'm walking around the city!  Dr Levi is fantastic, and I recommend him highly!

      I had a great experience last year seeing Dr. Levi.  I first went to see him after I thought that I stubbed my right toe / broke a bone.  He did an x-ray on it and discovered that nothing was wrong with the toe.  

    However, he also noticed that my feet had other problems - most notably, I have SUPER flat feet.  As Dr. Levi said - my feet are flatter than a pancake and it's true.  He was able to diagnose a condition in my feet that have been bothering me for the longest time  it was one of the reasons why I kept getting injured while running.  I often get plantar fasciitis and posterior tibial tendon issues.  Dr. Levi was honest - he prescribed customer orthotics for me.  The custom orthotics were a little bit on the pricey side - but they're worth every penny.  Some insurance companies do cover it - mine didn't unfortunately.  Anyway, as a result of them, I've been able to walk around with no pain and have perfect support for my feet.

    I wholeheartedly recommend people see him for your feet related issues.  He has helped me return to the world of running.

      Had a great experience with Dr. Levi! I got something stuck in my foot, which was very painful. Dr. Levi was able to see me on short notice, just in time so I didn't have to miss my flight for my vacation. He was able to successfully get the item out of my foot. He also diagnosed another foot issue I had which I wasn't even aware of.

    Very pleasant to work with, and he is also flexible if your insurance is out-of-network with him!

  •   It's been several years already, I hurt my foot while playing soccer. It hurt a lot, I could barely walk in the beginning. I went to a doctor, he told me that I needed a surgery and that the sesamoid bone had to be removed. I went to Dr. Levi for a second opinion, he pressed on the bottom of my foot and asked if it hurt, I said no, he said you don't need a surgery, it'll go away and it did. I'm glad I didn't listen to the first doctor, who I assume is in the money making business... more surgeries - more money, and it doesn't matter if the patient needs one. Thanks!

      Dr. Levi was excellent in helping me cure my injured toe nail.  I had just returned from Florida after Hurricane Irma with a lot of pain and I was able to see the Doctor immediately.  He not only identified the problem, he gave me choices for a solution.  I chose to remove the nail to avoid future issues.  Surgery was quick and he also shared his humor while at it.  Thank you Dr. Levi for your knowledge and service!

      Dr. Levi is an expert at his practice. He saw me for a last minute appointment this week to remove a painful ingrown toenail. The surgery was quick and painless. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is upfront and honest. I would highly recommend him!

  •   Prior to seeing Dr. Levi, I suffered from chronic back pain.  I had seen 2 different Doctors (multiple times), and had many many months of physical therapy.  My problems had not improved...not even a little bit.  ONE visit with Dr. Levi, and I was cured.  Dr. Levi identified what was causing the problem and had the solution. A couple of days later, I started to feel better and haven't had any aches or pains for weeks.

    Dr. Levi is incredible thorough, knowledgeable and kind.  I highly recommend Dr. Levi!

      Dr. Levi was fantastic! After going to a podiatrist who was very unhelpful previously, I am so glad I found Dr. Levi. He really cared about my issue and was very up front with what my insurance would (and wouldn't) cover. I appreciated that he really listened to what was bothering me and had a conservative, yet proactive approach. He fitted me for orthotics, but he also gave me a few diy remedies to help with the pain in the meantime free of charge. Very happy!

      Dr. Levi and his staff are really welcoming and make you feel as comfortable as possible during the treatment. They were also the first to ever explain how my health insurance works (ie. What I would be responsible for, what the insurance carrier would cover etc) and really work with the patient to make sure we get the appropriate treatment at a reasonable price. Dr. Levi has a lot of experience and he is an expert at his practice. I never feel rushed during my visits and they always take the time to listen to my concerns. Overall my experience has been super positive, which has helped to motivate me to get better and take care of myself!

  •   Dr Levi was very prompt and has excellent bedside manner taking time to hear my issues. His treatment has received some of the pain I've been having which 3 other docs were unable to assess.

      My experience with Dr. Levi was exceptional. He immediately saw me when my appointment was scheduled. He provided a thorough consultation and was extremely knowledgeable. He asked me great questions to help treat my symptoms and he had wonderful bedside manner. I am very satisfied with my visit and would consider him to be one of best podiatrists in NYC.

      Great service from staff...really made the extra effort to find me an appointment(my schedule was very busy that day). Dr. Levi creates a comfortable environment to have your visit while really listening to what I had to say.

  •   I loved Dr. Levi and his staff! Came here for a second opinion after my previous podiatrist recommended a fairly pricey surgery for my foot/toe problems. I really felt like Dr. Levi listened to my concerns and was able to tell just from looking what the root cause of the problem was (which did not require surgery).

    His staff was also really responsive and friendly. They even remembered my name after the first visit. Wait time to see him was minimal and everything seemed well organized.

      Dr Levi made a custom orthotic for me which is great!  I no longer spend time thinking about foot pain, it just doesn't cross my mind anymore.  The office staff are pleasant and courteous, easy to get appointment, conveniently located, runs on time, professional and doesn't rush through the visit, and the price is fair.  I found Dr Levy through the strength of his Yelp reviews and I'm so glad I did.

      Dr. Levi has been more than my expectations! He identified me issue with my foot and fixed it very nicely. He always explains me with details and knows what he is ding for sure.  He is very friendly and nice. I'd strongly recommend him for anybody. Lastly, two ladies are also awesome and friendly to talk! Great team!
