  • Gastroenterology
  • Physician What's this? A physician, or doctor, is extensively trained to diagnose and treat complex medical problems. Often, physicians focus their practice on certain disease categories, treatment methods or patient types. Physicians can diagnose and treat illness, prescribe medication, offer medical consultation and advice, perform surgery and more.

About Me

My expertise in general gastroenterology includes treating many types of patients and conditions. I provide comprehensive care from diagnosis to treatment. Combining the best of technology, research and procedures with excellence in patient care is very important to me.

Communicating with patients plays a key role. I listen to their concerns and goals, and inform them about various aspects of their health. This includes sharing steps they can take to improve their overall health and well-being. I also educate them about any procedures they may need.

I have worked at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center for virtually my entire career. I enjoy working with my colleagues to provide quality care to our patients.

In my spare time I love to relax with my family or take in a movie. I attend a lot of Ohio State football games and like spending time outdoors. I enjoy life, and I am a really funny person!

Dr. Levine is the best. He is always on time, he always calls with lab results and he responds to any requests that I have very quickly. He really cares about his patients and this is obvious to his patients!

Dr. Levine is truly one of a kind. He always calls on the day my lab results are available, even if it's just to tell me that everything is normal. He is very responsive if I have questions & I am so grateful for him.
