About Dr. Levy
 

Hello and welcome to my practice.  My name is Dr. Don Levy and I have been practicing medicine in the city of Orange, California since 1988.  I specialize in treating patients with allergic diseases such as asthma, hay fever, hives, eczema, insect stings, drug allergy, food allergy and anaphylaxis.

I first became interested in allergies when I was a boy growing up in Queens, NY, because I had severe hay fever and eye allergy.  My mother, sister, and brother also were allergy sufferers.  I went through the process of allergy testing and allergy immunotherapy (shots!) when I was in high school, so I also have experience as an allergy patient.

I was accepted into a 7-year BA-MD program when I graduated from high school in 1976.  I attended Brooklyn College for my pre-medical studies for 3 years, and then went to the State University of NY, Downstate Medical Center for my medical degree.  While I was in college, I did research investigating the immunologic aspects of hemophilia.  This research, as well as my having been an allergy sufferer, helped me to choose Allergy and Clinical Immunology as a career.

After graduating from medical school in 1983, I stayed on at Downstate Medical Center and did a 3-year Residency in Pediatrics, which I completed in 1986.  I then moved to the West Coast, and did a 2-year Fellowship in Allergy and Immunology at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. As part of my training I spent time at the West Los Angeles VA Hospital to get experience in treating adult patients.  As a Board Certified Allergist and Immunologist, I am trained to treat allergic and immunologic diseases in both adults and children.

In addition to my practice, I am on Voluntary Faculty at U.C. Irvine Medical Center since 1988, and hold the rank of Clinical Professor of Medicine in the Division of Immunology and Allergy.  I enjoy teaching very much, and I find this to be very rewarding.  In 2008, I received The Richard L. Day, M.D., Master Teacher award in Pediatrics.  In addition, I keep up-to-date on all the latest treatments and innovations in my field.  I have also been actively involved as a principal investigator in clinical research to get new medications approved by the FDA.

Having been in practice for more than 20 years, I have been very fortunate to have developed long-term friendships with my patients and their families, and I feel that we are one big family.  I treat my patients the way I would like my own family members to be treated—with respect, caring and compassion.  In my practice, patient care and satisfaction are a priority.  Welcome!
