He’s smart, he’s genuine, and he’s thorough. I liked his charismatic demeanor with my newborn as well as with me personally as a first time Mom. We have searched, interviewed, and evaluated several local pediatricians and happily chose Dr. Ledowitz.

We just moved back to NYC with our 10 month old twins, and were so lucky to have been recommended to Dr Ledewitz! He is funny and kind, and so patient and gentle with the babies - even though it was a very busy day in the office he spent a great deal of time with each baby (sometime the twins get rushed because its easy to think of them as a combo package) and answered all my random questions about eating, development, etc. I really appreciated his great referral to a specialist, too.

Dr Ledewitz was very helpful, even though he was not our primary doctor. He saw us on a Sat during emergency hours. He was professional and easy to speak with. He was very good with my 3 year old son. We would be happy to see him again.

We adore Dr. Ledewitz. Our son, 3.5 years old, asks to go to see him the minute he has the slightest cough. He’s a wonderful doctor and human being.
