Dr. Japera Levine
Dr. Japera Levine hails from the town of Beaumont, Texas where she graduated with honors from West Brook High School. Upon graduation, she began her collegiate matriculation to the capital city of Austin as a Texas Longhorn majoring in Neurobiology. Her interest in this subject came from her strong affection for anatomy, which is partially what intrigued her to become a Podiatrist. Her additional interest stemmed from a family history of diabetes as well as a desire to become a surgeon.
After completing her undergraduate degree with a Bachelors of Science in 2004, she took her talents to Philadelphia in order to study medicine at the prestigious Temple University where she received an academic scholarship. It was at Temple where she honed her skills to becoming a Podiatric physician & surgeon. During the time at Temple, she was accepted to a well-respected internship at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio under the tutelage of Dr. Harkless, Dr. Fontaine, & Dr. Zgonis. Under this direction she obtained extensive knowledge in the art of lower extremity limb salvage and metabolic diseases.
Upon graduation from Temple, Dr. Levine moved to Boston, MA where she learned conservative surgical techniques of the foot & ankle. Following one year of becoming well versed with east coast medicine, Dr. Levine was accepted to a highly esteemed training program affiliated with the University of Chicago. While in Chicago, Illinois, she became skilled with the surgical art of pediatrics, foot & ankle reconstruction, and surgical trauma. After much deliberation and prayer, she desired to be an asset to the local community and took her expertise home.
Dr. Levine believes that serving her community extends beyond surgery. In 2017, she spearheaded a community garden along with Lamar University in order to provide fresh fruits & vegetables to the South Park area. She and her staff plant during each season. In addition, as an active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc she serves on the scholarship committee & as the cotillion Chair person. Her goal is to mentor young ladies in this county and award them scholarship money for college. Lastly, Dr. Levine volunteers her time to tutor Math at South Park Middle school in collaboration with the local University. It is her desire to treat and care for those who taught and helped in raising her.
