I can only report my own experience, but Dr. Levine was really great for me.  He was SO easy to talk to and didn't make me feel like I was crazy.  He is very experienced and it became clear to me right away.  I don't know what anyone else would feel, but I will say that seeing him was really helpful to me. If I called him I either got him right away or he called me right back.

If you are looking for a psychologist you don't need to look any further.  I found him on line and lucked out big time.  Dr Levine is the real deal.  This guy is from New York and I think he was the head psychologist at a big hospital there before he moved to LA maybe a year or so ago.  Very nice, very ethical, very easy to talk to and I see that he is very experienced. Helped me so much I can't tell you.  What a wonderful man.
