excellent visit; doctor engaged my child in good conversation and included her.
always pleased with dr Levine and his staff.
Dr. Levine has taken care of my children since they were little and he really cares about their overall health and wellness.
Dr. Levine has been our pediatrician for 17 years. We travel nearly an hour with the confidence and trust that we'll always receive the best care for our three sons from a physician who is dedicated to his profession and devoted to his patients. We have never been disappointed by Dr. Levine's demeanor, and have never had any doubt of his advice for their care. His genuine "grandfather-like" personality to my sons is an important part of their development - they trust and respect his good judgment in promoting their well-being. The long-time familiar faces of his staff is a testimonial of his integrity and profound expertise in health care. He is an exceptional man professionally and personally, who has established a repour with our family that is above and beyond the expectations of a physician/patient relationship. He has become a trusted life-long friend and is an invaluable asset to my strong and healthy young men!
My husband took my child to this appointment, but he noted that Dr. Levine was exceptionally good with children. He took the time to be playful and on the level of my 2 year old, making it a fun visit for all involved. We are very happy we chose him as our new pediatrician!
Appropriately referred us to the ED
Dr Levine was excellent with my daughter and answered all of our (parent) questions.
Dr Levine is an amazing physician. We are devastated to hear he plans on retiring in June. We drive 1 hour and 20-30 minutes each direction because of our confidence in the doctors there. Dr Levine is absolutely the best. He listens thoroughly to all of our concerns and completes a through exam before making any decisions yet somehow manages to keep a schedule. Great Guy!!
I love Dr Levine wonderful provider and asset to the practice
Dr. Sheldon Levine has always been an excellent family centered pediatrician and taken great care with our children.
He worked really well with my son and interacted with him in a way a child his age needs to feel comfortable. He joked with him and talked with him in a way most providers won't do. Which I loved and my son seemed to click really well with him and wasn't uncomfortable. I wouldn't mind changing him to my sons PCP.
My toddler son was very apprehensive about going to the Dr office, especially since he had a flu shot the last time. I was fearing a meltdown, but Dr Levine and the nurse (who's name escapes me at the moment) did an outstanding job of keeping my son calm during the exam.
love Dr. Levine, he is the only doctor my kids know, honest about his views and respects mine
The Dr was excellent!!
care provider knows what they are doing.
excellent service and great communication.
My children loves the fact they get to answer questions directed to them by the doctor.
Dr. Levine was fantastic! Thank you

Dr. Levine has been my doctor since I was born 19 years ago. He has always been respectful and kind and I am so glad my mom chose him to take such good care of me.
Everyone at this practice is so nice and friendly. My son looks forwarded to seeing Dr. Levine
Dr Levine has been taking care of my kids for 23 years. He takes excellent care of my boys. keeps up to date on all aspects of my sons wellbeing. Recognizes the importance of my son's mental health as well as physical health. my youngest son has autism and Dr Levine has always been very patient with him and listens to me when I tell him what I have found helpful in dealing with my son.
Dr Levine was great.
He was great. I talked to my wife about switching to him as our PCP.
Dr Levine is a wonderful Pediatrician and person. He takes time with my children and shows a genuine interest. I was sad when my oldest child aged out of his care.
Dr. Levine is a fantastic diagnostician and consistently has been able to determine the root cause for various health concerns. My husband and I trust him implicitly with our children.
I have been taking my children to GIL Pediatrics for over 13 years. I wouldn't go anywhere else!
Dr. Levine was excellent. He was so personable, took a lot of time with each child and was very thorough.

I feel confident in the care my twins are given .
We travel 1 1/2 hour each direction to see Dr Levine and wouldn't have it any other way. He is an amazing physician with excellent bedside manner. He openly discusses any concerns and takes time to explain things and come up with a plan of care. We love the folks at CCP GIL Pittsburgh!!
thank you for the services
Dr. Levine is the greatest. My children have been seen by him for 21 years. He has always been exceptional with all of my kids.
He related well to the kids
This was our first visit with Dr. Levine, and I was very happy. He was kind, pleasant and funny. He answered my questions and explained my son's illness. He could not have done better - I'm very pleased.
never a complaint about the doctor or the staff.
Dr. Levine is a great doctor
Dr. Levine is always thorough and caring when I visit his office. He takes time to listen and explains things in a clear manner. The office staff is also very kind and courteous.
Dr. Levine had a warm and friendly demeanor with my daughter. very age appropriate, and made her at ease even though she's never seen him as a provider before.
We love Dr Levine and drive 1 1/2 hours into Pittsburgh to see him. He is very knowledgeable, always on time and pays attention to any concerns we have and listens carefully. He talks to and plays with our children so they are not afraid and always explains to them what he is going to do. He is an awesome physician and I would recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Levine has been an amazing doctor for longer than I have been alive. Both of my children both like and trust him, which is not a normal thing for my children, and I am so grateful that he hasn't retired yet!
We've been very happy with Dr Levine, no bad experiences. He has been our pediatrician for 23 years.
Dr Levine is the best!
As always, Dr. Levine was wonderful
Dr. S Levine is the best doctor ever !!!
He made negative comments about the vaccine schedule for our previous pediatricians (we just moved to Pittsburgh). To me, as long as our child is safe and healthy, there are multiple approaches to an infant's health. We had a great experience with our previous doctors' office and hope the same will be true here.
Dr. Levine is amazing! we could ask for a better provider.
I love the CCP - GIL office and everyone in it
We love Dr. Levine he is so wonderful with my Son and he truly cares. He makes things easy when explaining and is patient..we are very happy he's our child's physician!
I have been using Dr. Levine as my children's pediatrician for the last 20 years. At one point, I wanted to choose a closer provider to where I live but could not do it because of how wonderful Dr. Levine has been with all of my children. This year my first child graduates out of his care and we are both heartbroken. I have long said it was easier to go through a divorce than leave my pediatrician. He truly is a gem. All of my children feel comfortable with him and trust him. He is a wonderful person and I am so lucky to have found him and kept him for the last 20 years!
My daughter really like Dr. Levine. She's never seen him before. She even asked if she has to go back to the doctor- can she go back and see him. Thanks for making her feel so comfortable when she felt horribly!
Excellent experiences with both my children ages 10 and 3
Dr Levine always makes my daughter feel at ease and comfortable. He listens closely to what she says and truly has her best interest in mind. He also puts me at ease and I know I can ask him any questions without being judged.
I have taken all of my children to see Dr. Levine for over 25 years. He is fantastic, and he provides excellent care. There is no other doctor that I would recommend more than Dr. Levine. I have total faith in him. He is an excellent doctor that truly cares about his patients.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr.Levine. He has beenmy daughter's doctor since birth. He is so knowledgeable and kind. He takes the time to explain things and answers all of my questions.
We Love Dr. Levine!
We love Dr. Levine
Dr. Levine is the best doctor. He takes his time and goes over all my questions. My son trusts him.
We loved Dr Levine. He didn't rush us and took the time to talk with my son and listen to his description of his issue. Wonderful doctor. Allof our experiences at CCP GIL have been positive.
Dr was great!!!!
Dr. Levine is great!
This was our 1st time visiting with Dr. L. He was absolutely amazing. My daughter is afraid of going to the doctors as well as afraid of male doctors. He was so caring, playful and patient with her. He answered all of our questions related to the visit and a few unrelated to the visit but concerns we had. We did not feel rushed at all, but very happy with the entire experience.
Recently switch to Dr. Levine from another doctor in the practice. So far we have been extremely happy. Dr. Levine takes time with my son, listens to him, and explains everything very well. I also feel that he honestly wants us to ask questions during the visit and call if we have questions later. Very nice and helpful
dr Levine explained everything very well and gave specific instructions. very experienced and courteous.
Dr. Levine is fantastic. He has always made us feel supported and comfortable. I dont think there is another pediatrician out there who holds a candle to him.
I have known Dr. Levine for over 50 years. He was an excellent resident at CHP, excellent provider for my 3 children and has a great relationship with my grandchildren!
Dr. Levine was rude, did not address my concerns regarding my child's health
I have had Dr Levine as my Children's pediatrician for 15 years and he's always been so great with them and myself. highly recommend
We love our visits with Dr. Levine.
