Dr. Lichtblau displayed bizarre behavior at both of our appointments. He never introduced himself, he did not look at or examine his patient (my little boy with quad cerebral palsy) or answer direct questions. He displayed irrational anger and when I asked why he was so angry with me, he responded with, “I’m angry because you did nothing I asked.” I assured him we did everything we could, but he immediately accused me of lying and then wouldn’t allow me time to talk or respond to his accusations. He didn’t want to hear anything I had to say and it didn’t seem to matter to him. When it became obvious that we were still not leaving.. (I was in shock), he suddenly exclaimed, “This is too exothermic and I don’t have relationships like this. You need to leave.” He had me escorted out. The next day, our caseworker sent me a copy of her correspondence with Dr. Lichtblau’s office that they claimed never existed. We’ve ever experienced anything like this in our lives!

I highly recommend Dr. Lichtblau for physical therapy and rehabilitation. The staff is courteous, knowledgeable and professional. It is comforting to know that besides the physical therapists, that Dr. Lichtblau and his PA are also on site. I have been a patient at other physical therapy centers, and Dr. Lichtblau's facility surpasses them all.

I’ve been a patient of Dr Lichtblau’s for years. He has helped me very much. He is kind and patient, as is Larry, the Physician Assistant. Dr Lichtblau refers his patients to top specialists. The administrative staff are efficient and polite. I recommend this practice.

On May 6th my 6 old daughter started with pain in her legs. Then she couldn’t walk. Several ER’s visits and several doctors later no one knew why she wasn’t walking. Dr. Lichtblau saw my daughter on May 13th and diagnosed her with Gullian Barre syndrome. He is amazing, compassionate and incredibly knowledgeable. He told us to go to the ER. We went to Joe Dimaggio ‘s Children’s hospital and Drs. there didn’t do all the work to confirm Guillian Barre. We left Joe Dimaggio ‘s no diagnosis and went to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami. They not only confirmed Dr. Lichtblau’s diagnosis but also gave my daughter the treatment she so much needed.. Yesterday almost 1 month later since my daughter ‘s pain started she was able to walk again. Dr. Lichtblau is amazing. I highly recommend him.

I was in a truck accident almost a year ago. And so twice weekly I drive 45 minutes each way to the offices of Dr. Lichtblau. I feel blessed to have found him & to be under his personal care. In addition, Dr. Lichtblau has been kind enough to refer other superb doctors when I needed information. The staff there is just excellent: professional, extremely knowledgeable, kind & nurturing. Each visit I am asked what is currently hurting & am always asked how I felt when I left the previous time. With all their help I am improving weekly...Dr. Lichtblau is a rare gem.

Dr. Lichtblau is the best provider in the nation and I would recommend anyone to be a patient of his without qualms. Him and his entire staff (hospital and office based) provided the BEST treatment that science and ethics has to offer for my father after sustaining multiple traumatic orthopaedic injuries. Dr. L and his PA’s were always readily available to discuss any questions or concerns during my father’s post-operative recovery. Every aspect of care was impeccable from rounds at the hospital even to dedicated physical therapy afterwards. The overall care provided by Dr. L was paramount to my fathers successful recovery. I am so grateful for the care and compassion that this practice has provided.

Dr. Lichtblau for the most part is a very qualified doctor, they have an excellent therapy department. Unfortunately his medical staff, referral ,& billing department are in need of being polite to people classes.

Dr. Lichtblau, is a nice & caring doctor . Has a great medical team. The staff that handle referrals ,prescriptions, billing need to be a little more patient. They were rude, and act like they don't like working there. I know if the doctor herd you speaking to his patients with attitudes, they would be looking for another job. P.S. therapy staff is excellent.
