Dr. Lowentritt pronounced my father dead, making no eye contact much less any conversation. He spoke only a sentence to the nurse, turned around and left ignoring his daughters. In my opinion, he has no compassion. He also misdiagnosed two elderly women with benign ailments who both turned out to have cancers. I believe that he does not wish to "waste time" on older patients.

This man must be the most cold hearted pompous doctor I have ever encountered. He treated my father and gave him worse than pathetic medical care. His diagnoses were wrong and his methodology was very flawed. He treats his patients with contempt and he is condescending to the families. He believes himself to be God and listens to no one. I would not send my worst enemy to this man. My father survived despite this man's attempt to mistreat him or worse. He is NOT smart like he thinks he is.

Dr. Lowentritt has monitored my health care for many years, ten plus. I have the greatest confidence in his abilities and judgments. I would very highly recommend him. Consistently he is very kind, very accessible, very thorough, never rushing. After each appointment I am always happy. He encourages rather than criticizes. He is always in a good mood. I feel genuine warmth and concern. I want him to see me out. (His nurses and office aides are all helpful and lovely.)
