The Dr. Levy Methodology
We started to ask questions because we noticed our patients shared the following similarities:
- Awareness of the problem reality
- Timing surrounding onset of symptoms (divorce, job loss etc.)
- Failed attempts at changing behaviours despite understanding them and wanting to change
- Evidence of co-morbid disorders requiring treatment (sleep problems, mood disorders, etc. )

We are here to listen non-judgementally, without pre-conceived beliefs about the patient, and to serve them as best as we can. Time for the patient is extensive, with patient care being the focus and not number of patient seen in a day. A day has perhaps 10-12 patients, so that each person gets a proper length of time to make their visit time worthwhile. The impression of the patient will develop only as we talk, and it doesn’t matter what is talk about initially. There is trust to be established, and that only happens when both parties get a comfort level with each other.
Our belief is that you cannot treat a patient by stepping out in front of them and deciding who they are, where they are and the reasons for those things. Compassion, patience, listening without assumptions, and tailoring treatment to ur unique circumstances, addressing ur unique challenges and providing you with your best chances of weight loss success.
First impressions, you of me, & vice-versa are most important.
The one thing I must convey is that I am here to listen non-judgementally, without pre-conceived beliefs about you, and to serve you as best as I can. I have lots of time for you, as I don’t see many patients on any given day, perhaps 10-12, so that each gets a proper length of time to make their visit time worthwhile. My impression of you will develop only as we talk, and it doesn’t matter what we talk about initially. There is trust to be established, and that only happens when both parties get a comfort level with each other.
