I am a seventy year old, 165 pound, athletic, full-time Naples resident. I had no "Heart" symptoms, but my conservative internist set me up for a Calcium CT scan - I went to see Dr Levine after I received a high calcium score. Dr Levine explained my situation and options to me very well and I then had a work-up at his office (examination and nuclear stress test) We agreed to do an exploratory Cath, with a balloon Angioplasty - if appropriate. Dr Levine found a large, heavily calcified plaque deposit (90% blockage) in my Right Coronary Artery, which did not respond to the balloon procedure. We re-scheduled for a later date at which time Dr Levine removed the hard plaque and installed a Stent. Since the procedures I feel better than I have in ten years.
Working with Dr Levine and his staff was one of the best doctor/patient experiences that I have ever had. What could have been a very difficult and scary time was made much easier by Dr Levine and his staff with their willingness to share information, help and decisions. I do not hesitate to recommend Dr Levine and his practice.
