Care Philosophy

My philosophy of placing patient care and needs first has been my central guiding principal since I started practicing Rheumatology in 2002. I incorporate careful history and physical exam skills with years of experinece. This enables me to best apply the art and science of Rheumatology in order to provide you with successful treatment. I view the doctor patient relationship as a partnership between you and me. Ultimately we will come to decisions about your treatment plan together. I will empower you to be in control of your health and to be involved in all aspects of your care. I make educating my patients about their condition and treatment a priority so that they completely understand what the goals are. Patients often complement me on how I am such an effective listener. This best enables me to attend to your unique individual needs.Read more

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.
in Hawthorne, NJ |
I've dealt with him for more than 10 years for gout. He follows research and trends, shares much advance, always friendly and professional. One of the best doctors I have ever dealt with.
in Oradell, NJ |
When I had what turned out to be a blood clot in my hand that several doctors, including 2 specialists, could not pinpoint, I needed a quarterback to find the right people who could solve the problem. Dr. Leibowitz was, and still is, that for me. He arranged a weekend series of tests, then researched surgeons in New York City when one couldn't be found in New Jersey to perform the microsurgery I needed, and cold-called him. Bottom line: The surgeon, and Dr. Leibowitz's diligence, saved my hand

As a patient of Dr Leibowitz’s for 12 years, I have had opportunity to be taken care of by an excellent physician. Dr. Leibowitz is all I could have hoped for in a physician. He has always provided the absolute best of care, and I believe, best advice and treatment during every visit, for every issue. If you are looking for a physician whose medical knowledge is encyclopedic, treats the whole person, and takes the time to be caring, then Dr. Evan Leibowitz is someone you should consider visit.

in Dumont, NJ |
I've been going to Dr. Leibowitz for several years for a somewhat obscure autoimmune disease that has given me several complications, some of which were quite serious. He has shown INCREDIBLE knowledge and expertise in every aspect of my condition, sending me to specialists when necessary. He explains everything thoroughly & answers all my questions with the best bedside manner I have ever experienced in a doctor of his caliber! He is always compassionate & understanding! The BEST doctor EVER!!!
in New Milford, NJ |
Very knowledgeable, very dedicated to helping to improve the patient's condition. Very thorough evaluation of symptoms. Always kind and compassionate. Listens intently and offers treatments and therapies which make sense for the patient rather than just standard treatment. Responds quickly to emergency calls. Based on his experience with thousands of patients, he correctly identified my condition as rheumatoid arthritis simply by looking at my hands. Tests later confirmed his diagnosis.

When I first met Dr. Leibowitz, I was in so much pain. He took the time to exam, explain, and diagnosis my condition. I am a very active 66 year young person, and He made sure that I would continue to be that way. My husband, family and friends are so happy that I have gotten back to my self.. I can not thank him and his staff enough..

Dr. Leibowitz says...

I completed my Rheumatology Fellowship in 2002 at the Hospital For Special Surgery in New York City. I have been practicing Rheumatology in the northern New Jersey community since then. I have gained incredible experience diagnosing and treating patients with the entire spectrum of rheumatic diseases. In October of 2016 The Arthritis Foundation made me the Rheumatologist of the Year. I have been a Top Doctor multiple times in the Castle Connolly guide, Inside New Jersey, New Jersey Magazine, and New York Magazine.

Dr. Leibowitz says...

I am a medical detective. It is extremely satisfying for me  to help a person figure out how their symptoms fit together to formulate a diagnosis. I am especially interested in treating people who have rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, vasculitis, and gout.

Dr. Leibowitz says...

My practice has a fully staffed infusion suite. We are experienced at treating patients with all of the currently approved biologics including Remicade, Actemra, Orencia, Simponi Aria, Rituxan, Benlysta, intravenous gamma globulin, (IVIG), Entyvio, and  Reclast. We have significant experience treating atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) with intravenous Solaris. When indicated, we treat severe gout with intravenous Krystexa.
