Condolence and love to Mrs. Levin, Jill, Elise and Michael.

When I first came to Miami, a friend recommended Dr. Levin to me and I remained his patient for many years, even after I'd moved to Boca. (What a shlep to see him!)

His warm manner and fabulous sense of humor always made my trips to the doctor an event. A wonderful and caring man; it was my privilege to know him.

Thank you, Dr. Levin. Rest in peace.
