I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. He recommended many expensive laser treatments (eMatrix) which left scarring on my face. He then denied his lasers had caused the scarring. To warn other patients, I wrote a review on this site in 2012 - I noticed they took it down. Please do not believe all the positive reviews for Dr. Lefkovits - it seems these sites censor negative reviews.

Dr. Lefkovits is a rare breed of physician. He reminds me of when I was a child, doctors took their time with patients and truly care about each and every patient. After any office visit he personally takes the time to call and follow up. He is a stickler when it come to medical ethics, do not expect this doctor to break any rules. He is by the book, you can always count on his integrity, experience, credentials and talent. I consider Dr. Lefkovits one of the best dermatologists around.
