Patient Comments (2)
in Charleston, sc |
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.
in SC |
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.
