I don't know what leaves her patients more enamored, her diagnostic brilliance, her kindness and ability to put patients at ease, translate complex medical concepts into plain English, or her passion for medicine and people. I have referred multiple patients to Dr. Loewenstein and we all just LOVE her. She actually has a fan club - and that was before she swept in and saved the life of one of their spouses - who wasn't even a patient. Dr. Loewenstein is simply one of a kind - you want her to be your doctor.

It’s hard to give critical opinion but I think honesty is the best policy for room for improvement. I have had some critical questions regarding my treatment and while Dr. Lowenstein did her job in prescribing and explaining, there has always been some ambiguity and I simply couldn’t get affirmative answers or at least a better clarity. Dr. L was also eager to end sessions which can be quite impolite to some patients (I don’t take advantage of MD’s time btw.) Dr. was late for 11 mins on a 20 mins visit and when Dr showed up there wasn’t an apology or perhaps I forget. The session ended in 9 mins, again in a rush, and I had to pay USD 200 for in network rate. Overall I’d probably find a new md that are more caring and generally have better bedside manner. But I’m grateful for what Dr L did to treat my condition as she is a female doctor and I feel more comfortable disclosing due to my own gender.

Dr. Lowenstein is one of the best physicians I have ever been to. She is highly knowledgeable, listens, explains clearly and is up to date on the most current treatments. I would most definitely recommend her & am fortunate to have an internist I can count on.

Dr. Loewenstein has been my primary care physician for several years! She is a great doctor; very professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. The office staff and nurses are always welcoming and friendly. I highly recommend her and thank her staff on the UES for always being so professional and courteous.

I went in for a routine physical. I had checked a box on the exam that I was having headaches. She immediately jumped on the opportunity to prescribe and offer a referral with no indication that this would then be billed then completely separately from my physical as an office visit. Would not recommend going to unless looking for a Dr only caring about their profitability and not communicating clearly in your visit.

I cannot recommend Dr. Lowenstein enough! I found her office through a friend and could not have been happier. She without question saved my life by encouraging me to undergo bariatric surgery. She cares passionately about her patient's health and wants to get rid of stigma and shame around weight issues. She responds immediately and has been an amazing advocate for me with my insurance company. I'm just sad to have left NY so I can no longer be her patient!

I have been seeing Dr. Loewenstein for several years since my previous doctor moved and I have been extremely happy with her knowledge, her thoroughness and her ability to listen. She really takes the time to explain what she thinks is going on as well as the various diagnostic and treatment options. Her office staff is friendly and I am usually seen on time. My only complaint is that it can be hard to book an appointment with her!

It's tough to find a doctor that is both attentive and competent. Dr. Loewenstein is a rare mix of both. She helped me with a serious diagnosis that my previous primary care doctor had missed, and I'll never forget it. The only downside is that she's very popular so it can be hard to get an appointment.

She’s really rude. I was trying to find a new doctor since the one I had moved in CA. My first visit was unpleasant. I saw her for my annual exam, and she was acting like she was in a rush. I had questions and she did not respond to any of my concern. I do not think she’s a caring doctor at all.

Dr Lowenstein is extremely respectful of her patients: as a matter of course she explains not only what, but why. Dr. Lowenstein is that rare breed of primary care physician who, it seems, became a doctor in order to help patients become and stay well.
