My passion is treating depression and anxiety. It’s so vital to our health, families and communities. The first person I encountered with depression was my grandmother so, for me, this is a personal endeavor.
I actually founded my first depression clinic when I was a trainee and, over time, influenced by my research, I developed a treatment vision based on a foundation of caring and compassion, research-driven treatment algorithms and integration of care with other healthcare professionals to drive overall wellness.
Qualifications I spent the first part of my career in academic leadership as an Associate Professor at Weill Cornell Medicine/New York Presbyterian, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer and Northwell Health, three of the best health systems in the country.
“Hello, new me” is an invitation to embark on a journey of growth and healing,
I look forward to meeting you in person.
Psychotherapy is a powerful healing force. We use a research-proven, goal-focused therapy called CBT. It’s the most effective approach for depression, anxiety, panic and obsessive compulsive disorder. Done right, therapy is a meaningful and exciting endeavor that brings about real change.
We are experts at treating TRD (treatment resistant depression) . We integrate newer approaches that you won’t see at many other psychiatrists. Ketamine works faster than other treatments. It’s available intravenously or as a nasal spray (Spravato). Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) stimulates the regions of the brain that are depressed. It’s painless and effective.
This new technology helps us chose the right medication that is tailored to your unique genetic makeup. Our goal is to find a medication that is more likely to help and less likely to cause side-effects. It reduces the trial and error approach that you will find with many other psychiatrists. Read my article on genetic testing.
This is a new approach in psychiatry that aims to improve physical and psychological vitality. That’s why we work closely with your other physicians and therapists and that’s why we encourage exercise. We were the first depression and anxiety clinic in New York to integrate this approach.

I’ve said to my wife several times that I’m amazed how “back-to-normal” I am given where I was two months ago. I’ve shared my experience with a number of friends and members of my family – I’ve made it clear to all how fortunate I was to be working with you and how effective your treatment turned out to be. Don’t be surprised if you hear from one or two of them seeking help with similar or related issues. I’m very grateful for the way you helped me.
if you want a psychiatrist who is knowledgeable, competent, easy to talk to, patient and thorough, you could do no better than Dr. Tomer Levin. He hears what the problem is, what your concerns are, and then works collaboratively towards a solution. I worked with Dr. Levin for the first time several years ago, and then again this year. In both instances I was so pleased with the experience and successful outcome. Notably, in one of our sessions, he astutely identified a potential problem of an unrelated condition and advised I see my internist for further evaluation, which I did. He was correct and today I continue with the necessary treatment for that chronic condition. I highly recommend Dr. Levin for anyone seeing a psychiatrist for the first time as well for those who have more experience in knowing what they need and want in this area.
I think you are a lovely person and a gem of a doctor. I enjoy collaborating with you [treating our mutual patient].
I deeply value my partnership with Dr. Levin, and would strongly recommend him to both friends and family.
I feel amazing. I have been able to relax and concentrate in ways I hadn’t been able to in a long time.
Dr. Levin has worked with me on a variety of deeply rooted emotional and psychological issues, helping me build self-esteem and greater understanding.
You helped me so much. I can’t thank you enough. I also wanted to share the exciting news that we got engaged!!!!
Mom always talks about how nice you are. It makes a huge difference… Thanks again!
Dr. Levin is an intelligent, thoughtful, and goal-oriented psychiatrist. Where others failed, he succeeded by offering me practical tools that I have put to use to diminish severe anxiety.
You are a lifesaver. For six years I have been flipping out, but [with the new medication] it does not bother me any more.
He mends the mighty and the rabble, List’ning calmly to our babble. He squints up at revealing phrases, Then charts a pathway through the mazes, He sends up back to work and dabble
Thanks for the update and for treating [my patient]. He greatly enjoys working with you.” Therapist NYC.
Emotionally, I was a cripple in a world of people who could walk. Tomer Levin helped me to stand up, find my place, and move ahead.
Dr. Levin is committed to seeing me improve each week, holding me to task so I can actually benefit from the change we seek.
Mostly my life has been sad and dreary. I began to visit Tomer Levin and found a crack in the wall that let in a little light. Now I have come to believe in whole days full of sun.
If you really want to change your life, go to Tomer Levin. His brilliant intuitions will lead you in surprising directions.
In addition to your help with medications, thank-you Dr. Levin for referring me to Smart Recovery. It’s a very effective program with tools, groups and good people that have kept me sober!
Dr. Levin treated my teen child for both depression and anxiety while also coordinating their care with a DBT therapist in another practice. He preformed genetic testing on my child to help determine the appropriate medication for them and was slow to introduce the medication while offering nurturing, sensitive therapy that also included directives for healthy and helpful exercise. I appreciated how nurturing and sensitive he was to my child’s needs, as well as how much he collaborated with the other therapist. My child’s depressive symptoms greatly decreased under his care, for which we are extremely grateful.
