Board Certified Veterinary Neurologist / Neurosurgeon
Dr. Levitin attended veterinary school at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and earned his DVM degree (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine) in 2000. After graduating, Dr. Levitin continued his training as a rotating intern at the university’s veterinary hospital where he started his extended education in veterinary medicine and surgery. During this year, he fell in love with the complexity of the neurological cases. He found it fascinating to be able to solve the puzzle of neuro-localization and then find ways, medical and/or surgical, to help cure these patients.
After completing his internship in 2001, Dr. Levitin continued working in the neurology service for an additional year gaining more knowledge and experience in this field. However, Dr. Levitin felt that the more he learned, the more he understood how much he didn’t know yet. Therefore, in 2002 Dr. Levitin crossed the ocean with his wife Gili and moved to Massachusetts where he joined a Neurology internship at Tufts University.
After graduating from the Neurology Internship in 2003, he was accepted to a Neurology/Neurosurgery residency at Tufts University. Dr. Levitin completed his residency in 2006 and successfully passed all the needed exams to become a board-certified neurologist (Diplomate of the American Veterinary Medical Association).
Shortly thereafter Dr. Levitin took with him all the knowledge and experience he gained through this long training process and moved to New York City to build a new neurology service in a new veterinary referral center. In no time, this neurology service grew to become one of the main providers of neurology and neurosurgery to New York City patients.
In 2019, after more than 13 years serving the community in New York City, Dr. Levitin decided to cross the Hudson River and bring his expertise to new patients and a new veterinary community in New Jersey. He opened “Harmony Veterinary Care”, a Neurology service that combines knowledge, experience, and advanced technology with care, compassion, and love of animals.
