    in Mc Lean, VA |
    Dr. Lefton is a horrible doctor!From the moment he entered the exam room he was brusque & obnoxious. I've been an RN for 40 yrs & I've never seen such an atrocious bedside manner in an MD. He yelled at me- wouldn't even let me ask a question! Plus his physical exam elicited a lot of pain from me, but he didn't make one empathetic statement acknowledging my pain. Refused to order an MRI when I brought up possible soft tissue involvement with the knee OsteoArthritis.
