She spent about 3 minutes in total with me. and I am a new patient. For about an hour an intern , whose specialty not endocrinology, spent about an hour creating a chart, and so the doctor asked her questions about me.She explained that she was in a hurry and will spend more time with me next time ( I hope this will be the last time in this office).

Dr Lewy-Alterbaum treats you not only as a patient but also as a person. She spends the time needed and more in answering all of your questions and explains the treatment plan to follow in details. I really wish that all of my doctors over the years had been as nice and knowledgeable as her!
