Amazing Doctor!
in little silver , nj |
My daughter started experiencing new and debilitating health issues.including chest pain shortness of breath and convulsions. After being dismissed by many doctors and told that my daughters issues were psychological. We were finally referred to Dr Lefkowitz, who uncovered my daughter was having autonomic dysfunction and and arrhythmia. He was kind compassionate and smart! He treated my daughter with dignity uncovered her problem and treated it. I could not give higher praise for Dr Lefkowitz.

I have been a patient of Dr. Lefkowitz for two years. Through this time he is always kind, caring, and consistently displays expertise in his field. He always provides me with important information about treatment options that allow me to be confident with my treatment plan. He will follow up about test results whenever he receives them, even if this requires making personal calls in the evening.

Awareness of latest best practices in his field. Thoughtful, thorough and articulate, Dr. Lefkowitz is a brilliant communicator who takes the time to explain a patient's condition extremely well, and in a timley manner. He is very responsive to phone calls or issues that require his attention at any hour. he is one of the most professional phyicians I have ever met, and I recommend him unreservedly.
New York, NY |
horrible! He tells you a different opinion continuously, leaving the patient in total anxiety. Then he will change his diagnosis leaving the patient in total anxiety, yet again. I would not reccomend this doctor to anyone I care for. My feeling is that he is just after Money since he does not take insurance except for medicare. But if one is not 65 one cannot have medicare. Naturally he cares more for patients who pay. The most horrible doctor experience in my life. gave me a nervous breakdown
