As a skilled physician and a mother of five children, Dr. Levine is highly attuned to both the physical and emotional needs of her young patients.

Featuring a wide variety of child-friendly “touches” — such as special pediatric anesthesia methods, colorful bandages, stickers, toys, and prizes — Dr. Levine’s office is a comforting haven for children with skin disorders.
Dr. Levine performs outpatient surgery and procedures for both adults and children in our state-of-the-art, in-office operating suite, which is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). Additionally, she is one of only a few dermatologists who hold hospital surgical privileges, allowing her to perform pediatric dermatologic surgery at The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary in those cases when a hospital setting is recommended or preferred.
