His education and years of experience at NU speaks for itself. Quickly informs me of lab and imaging findings and their meaning for my current health status. Easy to talk with. Prompt at scheduled sessions.

Dr Levitsky is very calm and before the procedure he informs you what he is going to do and what the possible side effects are. I did not experience any pain at all and Dr. Levitsky informed me of the results the next day.

Josh Levitsky, MD, Jennifer Yeh, MD, and Nurse Mary K, RN. came across as knowledgeable, very good communicators, and sensitive to their patients.. Dr. Levitsky was calm, very reassuring and he told me not to worry because everything will be just fine. Awesome!

Hey, my cirrhosis is stable. Much o0f this has to do with Dr. Levitsky's skills. I've had two bandings of varices, one cauterization of a "watermelon" stomach and careful review of MRIs. Probably may of been long gone if it weren't for Dr. Levitsky.

After my test results came in, it showed that I didn't need to see Dr. Levitsky, but he made sure that I was seen by a hemotologist and in a timely manner since my labs showed I needed to be seen by the other department. He went above and beyond for me when he didn't need to.

External Professional Relationships
Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
