I was in Las Vegas for the SEMA show and called Dr Louk at 2am. He answered his own phone and was at my Bellagio room 30 minutes later. He numbed up my foot and took a joint fluid sample, then injected the joint with betamethasone acetate. I remember the medicine because he gave me the vial to show my Podiatrist in Chicago. I usually travel with colchicine pills, but forgot them this trip. Dr Louk gave me 15 free colchicine pills from his black bag and told me I won’t need them because the injection almost always works. He cautioned that if I drink alcohol with the colchicine I will have diarrhea, my hair will fall out, and I probably will die from a bleeding stomach. The next morning Dr Louk called to tell me that he used his special microscope at his office, just for gout, and that he did see uric acid crystals in my joint fluid. He sent a report to my Internist, who has always suspected gout but was never able to get a good joint fluid draw. Dr Louk was easy to talk to and didn’t seem rushed at all. I told him about my knee on the other leg and he twisted and pulled on it and said he was no expert, but would suspect an old ACL rupture. He gave me the number of an orthopeadist in Oak Lawn that stores his motorcycle in Dr Louk’s warehouse during the winter. Small world.

I was in Las Vegas for the SEMA Show. I called Dr Louk at 2 in morning and he answered his phone himself and was at my Bellagio room 30 minutes later. I usually bring colchicine pills with me, but forgot them this trip. Dr Louk gave me 15 free sample pills, with the usual precautions of this powerful drug. He numbed my foot up and took a joint fluid sample and then injected the joint with a medication called betamethasone acetate. I was able to work the next 3 long days at the trade show. Dr Louk called me the next morning to tell me that he saw uric acid crystals in my joint fluid using a special microscope at his office, just for gout. He sent a report to my internist in Chicago who had always suspected gout, but was never able to draw a good joint fluid sample. If you have a gout attack, don’t wait all day for the pills to work. Call Dr and get the shot.
I work on my feet all day as a nurse. I spent over $700 at the GoodFeet Store and those things just hurt my feet and back. My co-workers told me about Dr Louk. He came to my hospital and took plaster impressions of my feet and made custom molded foot orthotics that have made a tremendous difference in my life. They are guaranteed for life against breakage or malformation. All this for $280.
I highly recommend Dr Louk for your foot care needs. His custom molded foot orthotics are guaranteed for life against breakage or malformation.
Saw Dr for corn and callus, got a whole work over. They really saw me coming with state employees insurance. Before proceeding with doctors recommendations of xrays, I was toldmy portion of bill would be $80.00. Wound up with bill of over $300. Office staff are rude. Lauren the office manager is the most unprofessional person I have ever encountered. I left messages regarding my bill and lauren asked me why I would continue to call and they are not going to work with me on the bill. I am dumbfounded that they stay in business.
We scheduled an appointment here arrived 20 mins before but nobody saw us till 50 min post appointment time. Lady behind the desk didn't even bother to inform us what is going on. Please fix your appointment software and don't waste your paying patients time.
I guess this site doesn't allow emojis!!! All those question marks on my previous review, were emojis!!! Thank you Dr. Levine you're awesome!!!
I started seeing Dr. Levine several months ago for heel pain, and was so impressed with him not recommending surgery right off the get go. I tried all the conventional methods of treatment, but unfortunately I still needed the surgery. I just had my Fasciotomy w/ heel spur removal on December 13,16 & he was amazing! Very little pain, the first 2-3 days. Heeling went well(& im diabetic) I go back January 24,17 for my 1 month follow up, & I can walk w/ almost no pain, & it's only been 3 weeks!!! I totally put all my trust ���� %in Dr. Levine!!! I would also refer him to anyone who has feet problems! Also, I love the staff, at the front desk, all very nice:) Thank you Dr. Levine for relieving my heel pain so I can walk w/out pain & w/out that boot!!!! You're awesome��������
I flew into Vegas when my mother was admitted to the ICU. I cried when I saw her feet. They looked like claws. The nails were partially torn and the cuticles were bleeding. I don't know how she even walked. The nurses had taped booties on her feet because they were getting clawed overtime they walked by her bed. They said the Doctor had requested a Podiatry consult, but after 3 days of waiting the Podiatrist called back and said "I don't trim toenails." I searched the web and found Dr Louk. He carefully trimmed the horrible nails, and Mom didn't even wake up during the treatment. I thought his $230 bill was a little steep. Then I got the hospital bill for the booties. $670 for 2 lumps of sponge and some velcro straps. I was so relieved when Dr Louk offered to check on Mom's feet when she was transferred to Rehab and later to an assisted living facility. I never want to see my mother in this condition again.
