I have been Dr Leibowitz's pt. For 15 years. At the time, he newly diagnosed me with psoriatic arthritis. As I am a RN, I found Dr Leibowitz to be the ultimate professional. He is an excellent clinical diagnostician; very knowledgeable about the disease states he treats; their current and future treatment options. He is caring, personable and understanding. He promptly returns phone calls and / or portal messages. I have recommended him to any one looking for a rheumatologist.

Dr. Leibowitz is a very special Doctor. He takes the time to understand your issues and has a sincere desire to find the proper diagnosis for them. In my case, he has been extraordinarily important. He found through careful and systematic trial and error, what was causing my pains and prescribing a management program to significantly reduce or eliminate them. Aside from being a special Doctor he is sensitive and caring not only about your condition but how it affects you life.

I have been seeing Dr. Leibowitz for my Rheumatoid Arthritis for about 13 years. I feel he is a great doctor in so many ways... he is extremely knowledgable in his field and keeps current on the best treatments for RA and their longterm effects. He is a great listener and spends the necessary time with with me and makes sure my questions are answered. His demeanor is very pleasant and he always makes me feel comfortable. I have recommended him to many of my friends with auto-immune disorders.

I have seen Dr Leibowitz for over 8 years. He is very friendly, knowledgeable, and always takes the time to listen. He provides thorough explanations of medications, diagnoses, and treatment options. He is a wonderful example of "partnering in care" - helping his patients to make informed decisions regarding their treatment options. I am a RN myself, and always highly recommend him to anyone that asks about a rheumatologist!

Another physician referred Dr. Leibowitz to me some years ago when I was looking for a doctor who was knowledgeable about my conditions. I'm so glad that I start seeing him! He is not only knowledgeable about my conditions but also keeps up with latest information and share it with me. He stands by his guiding principle and takes time with his patients. Although I live in Morris County and work in Somerset County, trip to see him is never a waste of time. I highly recommend Dr. Leibowitz!

Dr. Leibowitz was recommened to me by another physician. After trying several rheumatologists in NJ and NYC, I am thankful to have found him. He listens, suggests, discusses and answers portal messages when I leave them. He takes time with his patients and I never feel rushed. He recommended me to another specialist for a rare disease that is finally being treated properly. Dr. Leibowitz is very knowledgeable and is a caring doctor. I would definitely recommend him.

Dr. Leibowitz has been my doctor for over 10 years. He is the best! I had gone to several neurologists, endocrinologists and rheumatologists prior to seeing him to figure out what was wrong with me. Dr. Leibowitz was the only one who could put a name to my rare autoimmune condition. He listens and takes his time when you are in his office. He is not only a wonderful doctor, but a wonderful human being.

I've been a patient of Dr. Leibowitz for the past 8 years or so, and I can't recommend him more highly. The office staff is very helpful, and I've always been able to secure an emergency appointment if I wasn't feeling well. Dr. Leibowitz has always explained my condition well, listened to my concerns, and provided helpful, alternative ways to help me control my symptoms. I've recommended him to family members and coworkers alike.

I'm a 32 year old female who has been going to Dr. Leibowitz since I've been 23. He loves what he does and cares about your health. With the proper diagnosis with chronic inflammation/RA I was able to enjoy activities again and live a normal life. He is high in demand so make sure to plan accordingly in scheduling.
