Dr. DAVID LEVI understands that it’s not necessarily a good day when you have to visit the doctor for your pain. “There’s a major focus today on the treatment of pain in this country,” he says. “Thankfully with the advent of minimally invasive procedures, newer medications and various non-narcotic treatments, we’ve been able to go a long way toward allowing patients to return to the lives they want to live. To achieve that goal we guide our patients in a positive way allowing them to become functional with as little pain as possible.” He says that any recommendations he makes for their treatment are the very same recommendations he would make for a family member.
He notes that a major change he’s seen in his patients over the last few years has been their ability to inform and educate themselves concerning their conditions. “Quite a few of our patients arrive at an appointment and they’ve already researched their problems. They’ve viewed procedures to the point where they come in here much better informed than patients of ten years ago. And, that’s a good thing since education is a primary function for me with my patients. If the patient is informed, that makes for a much better conversation about their treatment. ”
His practice, although good-sized, takes pride in the personal interest it accords in each patient, remaining focused on their individual needs. His major reward: “When a patient communicates to us that they’ve been able to return to running, playing golf or lifting their grandchildren.”
Dr. Levi, who is the president and medical director of Pain and Spine Specialists of Connecticut, earned his undergraduate degree and doctorate in Anesthesiology from the University of Michigan. He received his medical degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Newark, N.J. and completed his residency in anesthesia training and a pain management fellowship at Stanford University. He completed his internship at the Mayo Clinic
Certified in anesthesiology and pain management by the American Board of Anesthesiology, his specialties are anesthesiology, pain medicine, pain management and spine health.
