Vitality Health & Wellness provides comprehensive health options, which include both mainstream and alternative interventions. We specialize in consultative care for general medical issues, neuropsychiatric symptoms, anti-aging medicine and biomedical intervention in the treatment of Autism, ADHD and other developmental disorders. Offering the security of a Western-trained physician in a nurturing environment, our belief that healing comes from within leads us to more natural interventions and therapies with the lowest side-effect profile.
We are strongly invested in conservation as part of our community responsibility. We have been a paperless office since opening in 2000. Our flagship clinic is solar powered and we are proud to be the first commercial building in Miami Beach to have installed solar panels to manage our energy needs. Additionally, our clinic is completely “green;” having been built with reclaimed Dade-County Pine, non-toxic building materials and new materials from local sources wherever possible.
We are located on Miami Beach at 801 Fourth Street , just east of Alton Road and South of Fifth Street on the corner of Fourth Street and Meridian Avenue. From the I-95 go east on Interstate 395 until it turns into Fifth Street and continue East to the traffic light at Meridian Avenue. Turn right on Meridian and then make your first right hand turn on Fourth Street. Public parking is available on the street. Please be certain to read the city signs carefully regarding meter usage and tow away zones.
In addition to our Miami Beach location, Vitality offers outreach clinics around the country and the world. Dr. Levinson sees patients in New York City routinely and we offer in-home intravenous infusion in Manhattan when appropriate. Dr. Levinson provides “telemedicine” by phone and skype with his U.S. patients, with patients in countries around the world and is occasionally available for out-reach care in other locations upon request. We also serve many families from other countries who come to our clinic as “medical tourists, ” offering intensive treatments for blocks of time from a week to a month. Ask our manager about this option if you are considering coming for a focused visit to our clinic.
Additionally, if you are interested in having Dr. Levinson come to your community to speak or possibly to see patients, please email ([email protected]) or call our office manager to determine his availability.
