Dr. richard levin – dishonest and either incompetent or lazy!! review 586771 complaints board gas leak los angeles


Please save yourself the heartache and financial loss of dealing with this Dr. There is a reason he doesn’t deal with private insurance at all, doesn’t issue any kind of itemized bill, and pays the hospital for their fees "under the table". The hospital was atrocious – stains all over the carpet, wires hanging out of the wall where a clock would normally have been, wallpaper peeling off the wall, the scale fell apart while I was getting on it. One positive note- the hospital staff and anesthesiologist were great. The worst part was probably when my husband showed me the photo of the surgery schedule screen after my failed procedure. Dr. Levin had told my husband and I before we paid him that my procedure would take 2 1/2 to 3 hours due to the pelvic scarring/adhesions I had sent him records on and told him about. He had multiple other patients scheduled back to back beginning ONE HOUR after my surgery start time- which clearly shows he never intended to successfully complete my procedure unless it was "easy". Dr. Richard Levin is a smooth talker with used car salesman schmoozing skills- but beware of using this man for your tubal reversal if you’ve had any previous C-sections or surgeries that might cause adhesions or if you aren’t 100% sure that your procedure will be a simple, easy one. His operation is a "reversal mill." My surgeon here was shocked after reading Dr. Levin’s operative report and said he’s not sure if it’s incompetence or outright fraud- but that it’s wrong, whichever it is.

Wow. That doesn’t sound like the same doctor or hospital I went to! I had my surgery in 1999. I went with a friend who had hers later that same year. I also went with my daughter-in-law who had her reversal this year. Each time, Dr. Levin, his staff, and everyone at the hospital was professional, courteous, and caring. Dr. Levin is also very honest about telling you exactly what happened in the surgery and what your chances are for a successful outcome. Until he actually opens you up, he can only tell you his opinion based on what your doctor who did your tubal reported, and that is not always accurate. I obviously wasn’t there when the above woman was, but I find it very unlikely that Dr. Levin would overschedule. My guess is that the person who was scheduled after her was actually scheduled to begin the pre-op stuff, not her actual surgery. (BTW, I have 4 children who would not be here if it hadn’t been for Dr. Levin. I gave birth to my last child when I was almost 46. Dr. Levin clearly knows what he is doing.)

This is so wrong. I just had my tubal reversal done March 24, 2014. I am two days after my tubal and I am in excruciating pain due to me bleeding more then usual, because the doctor that did my tubal ligation did a horrible job. However, when we arrived at the Fair Field Inn in Louisville, they are the most kindest, caring people you would ever meet in your life. They go above and beyond to help you with whatever you need. When you arrive at the hospital, the staff there that preps you before surgery are very friendly and kind hearted. The anesthesiologist are amazing. Dr. Levin and his nurse that has been with him 37 years, are beyond kind! There isn’t words to explain how nice they are. He is an amazing doctor and she’s an excellent nurse. Even with the little complications I had, he did an amazing job. I don’t agree with what people say bad about him or his nurse. There is a reason he is the best in the country. You don’t like him cause you lied to him. One thing you never do is lie to your doctor or lawyer! Thank you Dr. Levin and Vanneesa! Sincerely, Cynthia Hill and Brandon Reed

The most dedicated Dr I have ever met. Had my reversal in the hospital with stellar service and clean. I have a lethal anesthesia allergy and this hospital (directed by Levin) provided the safest and most expensive alternatives for anesthesia. Dr Levin covered all the added expenses and never asked for an extra dime.

Prior to choosing Levin, I interviewed every specialist in Oregon and they all quoted me 12-14, 000 for a standard surgery – no follow up care, no hospital fees included, no fertility treatment if needed. Most said they wouldn’t try it because my tubes were both cut and burnt for over ten years.

Levin and he offered to see me in his office that same day free of charge. I asked if there was any chance to fix my tubes if they were really closed and he said he would provide his services free but there may be a hospital fees. This guy is not out for some ladies money. He read my X-rays and assured me the test was wrong. He encouraged me to try for a few more months before flying out to see him. We got our miracle rainbow baby just a month later.

I am not sure how ppl can say that others experiences are lies or false. I just had my reversal done last month, I would not recommend Dr. Levin to anyone. He was very rude, I read previous reviews about his bed side manner and ignored it. Prior to surgery he told me I wld Be good with a bikini incision and then changed it the day of, to a mid line cut and stated that I can either take it or go home and cancel everything. I asked him long before I cld drive, only bc my husband and I Cldnt recall what the paper said and were debating, Dr Levin rudely responded that he can already tell that I’m going to be a horrible patient and this is going to be a bad case! I might as well call the surgery off. That was easy to say once after we had already paid, and paid for flights and took leaves from work so we proceeded. I had several questions after the surgery because the wound has become infected. I sent 9 emails from my gmail, but for some reason one of his responses he sent to another email that I contacted his office on months ago, so I let him know that I didn’t receive his last response, his response was…I’m never emailing you again. I’m upset all over again by the way This man has treated me. I’m starting to think he may be experiencing a decline in mental health, he is a lot older than the pic he has on his website. I wish that I wld have listened to the other reviews!! I have attached pics and also other reviews, and after reading these comments and more. He did a horrible job with my incision he was over booked the day of. I have posted pics of the email, and others reviews. I can also post pics of the incision the day of surgery.
