He should be in New Orleans worst doctors magazine . My mom had cancer stage four and he keep telling her nothing was wrong with her until she saw an urgent care doctor on magazine street . She died a month latter after knowing what was wrong with her.

My husband & I have been going to Dr. Lowentritt for 15 years now. He is Awesome! He has always been there for us & treats us like family. He has a huge heart & is very kind & compassionate. We know we are getting quality care. He is the best Dr. in the State of Louisiana. Dr. Lowentritt's office staff are always concerned, eager to help with any matter & extremely kind yet professional. We feel Blessed to have these wonderful people in our lives.

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.)
