Lockhart Is VERY surgery happy first she scheduled me for surgery what she said was a tubular pregnancy , that same day I got a phone call from another Dr in her office stating it wasn't Dr Lockhart insisted it was I had surgery and she removed my tube turned out it wasn't a Tubular pregnancy . 2 weeks later I had a miscarriage , waited 2 hours in her office bleeding ,she then insisted to do D&C surgery I told her no and went to another Dr who said I did not need it. my body did it natural

The experience that I've had with this office is worst ever. I Had tests done that came back abnormal. The receptionist told me to ignore the results even though I have symptoms. The office doesn't answer the phone EVER. Be prepared to leave numerous messages just to get voicemails from the receptionist. Dr Lockhart is unassailable and you will never hear from her after seeing her in the office.

Dr. Lockhart is absolutely amazing! She delivered both my daughters via C-section and was so great!! I request her every time I go into that office. She always asks about my girls when I am there which shows she really cares. I had some issues last year which required me to have a laproscopy procedure. I was such a mess but she helped me through this and was extremely helpful. She is a remarkable woman!

Dr. Lockhart is very patient and courteous. She is extremely knowledgeable and I have complete confidence in her abilities as a gynecologist and surgeon. The office staff is usually pleasant in person but the office is not always easy to reach and not good about returning phone calls. The wait time is usually long. I assume this is due to overbooking because this practice of doctors is large and has many patients.

I have been under Dr. Lockhart's care since 2009 and, she is one of the best. This Doctor has a heart of Gold! She is very professional, knowledgeable, caring and just an amazing person. When I first started with Dr. Lockhart, I had difficulties getting pregnant and or staying pregnant. I have troubled with endometriosis for many years which made the process difficult. Dr. Lockhart gave me hope whether or not she knew it, or not. Today I have a Beautiful seven-month-old daughter.
in Lindenhurst, NY |
I adore Dr. Lockhart. She is knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. The staff are wonderful and clean, a little bit of a wait but not extreme. Dr. Lockhart makes it her business to give you that one on one, she listen's, understands, and if there's ever a question that she wasn't sure about , you bet she will get it AND either her or her staff will get back to you. She's thorough and cares. Honestly, I wish I could have met her sooner. I DEFINATELY would recommend her. Trust me, you'll love her!
in East Islip, NY |
Dr. lockhart delivered my second child and the experience was awful! she was so unprofessional right down to her long finger nails when delivering children. she had a poor attitude when it was time for me to push with no pain relief she told me not to make any noise! with all due respect you are a delivering my baby and you should be comforting me during my contractions and not telling me not to make any noise. the office south bay obgyn has gone down hill since dr judge no longer delivers.

Dr. Lockhart does not throughly review the results of tests that she orders. The office is extremely disorganized and the doctors are NOT on the cutting edge of research. They are stuck in the 80's..
