BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ, JULY 25, 2019 – Summit Medical Group welcomes Daniel Levin, MD, FCCP, to the Pulmonology team, practicing at 1030 Clifton Avenue in Clifton and 31-00 Broadway in Fair Lawn, NJ. Dr. Levin is board certified in pulmonary diseases and in sleep medicine. He specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea, characterized by brief periods when breathing stops due to uncontrolled relaxation of the throat muscles. He also has a special interest in treating patients with asthma and emphysema.
According to a study in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine journal, it is estimated that 936 million adults of all genders aged 30-69 have mild to severe sleep apnea. He is trained to diagnose and treat this problematic disorder along with many other mild and serious sleep problems and has a strong focus on providing patients with the tools necessary to share in the responsibility and satisfaction of monitoring their own progress. “I feel it is critical to discuss how current treatment is affecting a patient, either positively or negatively, to determine if any adjustments need to be made,” says Dr. Levin. “How treatment affects someone’s quality of life is particularly important,” he adds.
