As you know, the best way to increase the likelihood of enjoying a long and healthy life is to be proactive with your routine health care. Annual visits to your Ob/Gyn are an integral part of establishing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Levine is dedicated to providing comprehensive, personalized care to his gynecologic patients; his relaxed and “un-rushed” approach during your visit will put you at ease and give you the opportunity to discuss any questions you may have.
During your annual visit you will have a breast exam, pelvic exam, Pap smear and review pertinent topics and routine screenings that are based on your age such as: birth control, pre-conception health, mammogram screening and hormone replacement. Whether your visit is routine or you are seeing the doctor for an issue, you can count on the time and attention that Dr. Levine’s patients routinely receive.
If the need for gynecologic surgery ever arises, you will be confident knowing that Dr. Levine is experienced in minimally invasive surgical techniques including laparoscopic hysterectomy. You and your doctor will be partners in exploring which approach will best meet your needs and will achieve the best result. Dr. Levine has surgery privileges at Virtua Hospital in Voorhees and Summit Surgical Center which is on the Virtua Voorhees campus.
