What People Say About Dr. Leonard Lichtenstein, MD
Reply
Arrogant, rude, blustery, unsteady, impulsive, slavishly panders to his generally lazy nursing staff, traumatized even quite elderly patient with his disgraceful bombastic threatening tantrums and rants. Be warned.....tolerate him at a sustantial risk.

Dr. Lichtenstein is one of the best physicians we've ever encountered. He cares, looks into all options and possibilities, explains everything, and spends as much time with you as you need. I truly feel very blessed to have him on our side.
