Dr. Richard Levin / Dishonest and Either Incompetent or Lazy!!
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.
