    After having multiple bad experiences with anti-depressants and anti-consultants, he still fervently pushed both types of medicines without regard to my concern. Reluctantly I tried Topamax and my migraines have never been worse. Upon calling his office and asking for any low-grade pain killer he could give me, I instead got an attitude from Lefkowitz. He reluctantly said he'd send a script in for a pain med to help, but never did. This man doesn't care about his patients in my opinion.
