Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

The Best!
Dr. Lichtin provided the most outstanding care I have experienced from a physician. In my initial visit Dr. Lichtin hadn’t received the information he needed from my physician. Dr. Lichtin was able to send me downstairs for lab work which was delivered to him in 15 min. We were able to review the lab work immediately and order more labs which required a future follow up. Dr. Lichtin personally called me on a Sunday morning to review the results. This level of care is beyond what any other physician has delivered, in my experience. I am so thankful for his desire to go the extra mile for his patients. If you are looking for a Hematologist, you couldn’t find anyone better.

Rude. Mean spirited. Cruel. Plus he misdiagnosed my problem.

I have been seeing Dr Lichtin since the early 90's. He is a brilliant physician who is compassionate and really listens to what you are saying. He answers questions in an understandable, yet still accurate and informative manner. He personally calls me whereas I find other physicians would have their secretary do it, or send a message on MyChart. If he sees me, or another patient, in the waiting area of a treatment department, he comes over to check on you. I highly recommend him to anyone!

Doctor Lichtin was extremely thorough in his review of my case. He identified that the chemo therapy had created my blood issues. His recommendations back to my local oncologist were followed. And a year later, as he said my blood functions are within normal ranges. He is an outstanding knowledgeable physician.
