"What an amazing experience!"
"I cut my left arm with a table saw at my wrist, just above the top of my left hand, which is my dominant hand. It cut all tendons to my fingers & thumb and the muscle to my hand. Dr. Levesque performed about a 5 hr. surgery and repaired it all. It has been 7 months and I am typing, writing and playing the organ almost as good as before. I do have some limits with a couple of fingers, but thanks to a great surgeon and hand therapy, I am recovering beautifully. He's wonderful."
"Dr. Levesque was my daughter's surgeon in Alabama. She had traumatic amputations from a drunk drivers carelessness. Dr. Levesque is absolutely by far, one of the finest, caring, intelligent surgeons we could ever have imagined. We love him and his practice."
"I went to Dr. Levesque because I was in an accident that left a large scar on the back of my leg. The Emergency room told me that no one would ever notice my scar and after poking me several times with a needle, they put in these large stitches that hurt when they were taken out later. It turned out to be an eyesore that people always ask about when I wear shorts. Dr. Levesque was able to "redo" the scar and now its practically invisible. He was very friendly and other than a quick pinch from the numbing shot, I didn't feel a thing. The way he sewed me up was WAY smoother and cleaner than the last guy and I didn't have any stitches to take out. Definitely a difference when using a real plastic surgeon instead of someone else!"
"I was operated on by Dr. Levesque and had such a high level of confidence in his ability by him explaining exactly what could occur and if so how he would deal with what he found. He gave me all the variables that could happen. I had a radical mastectomy and look wonderful. I love this man and would insist that anyone I knew use him."
