Dr. Lefkowitz has been my pain management doctor for over 15 years. He is a great guy and has helped me immensely with my injuries caused by a fall from a horse in my late teens. When i came to Dr. Lefkowitz, i had already underwent two lumbar spine surgeries including spinal fusion. i was on tons of meds that inhibited my life and i was still in pain. He took me off the meds and relieved my pain within the first few years through different procedures and exercise. He gave me solutions instead of just giving me meds that made me sick and didn't even take the pain away. He has really made a difference in my life and i highly recommend seeing him for pain management.

Dr. Lefkowitz has been helping me fight pain my most of my adult life. I fell off a horse when I was 16 and have been struggling with back pain for many years. I met Dr Lefkowitz around 2004 and he has been helping me successfully manage my pain since then. Although I still experience pain daily I know it would be much worse if it weren’t for Dr. Lefkowitz. He is an excellent doctor and I would recommend him to anyone who suffers from pain daily.

Lifesaver. Truly. I had been experiencing severe pain for over 8 months. I was passed (and passed off) from doctor to doctor to doctor with no relief. The pain worsened to the point that I could not even walk to the bathroom, I could not even wash my own hair. Dr. Lefkowitz was the FIRST AND ONLY Doctor to finally listen to me. He was thorough and receptive. I dragged myself into his office in tears with every step I took. After my first visit, I was able to walk out of his office, WALK OUT OF HIS OFFICE, on my own. I cannot express how emotionally freeing this relief was. It was the first time I had been freed from all-consuming, spirit-shattering, debilitating pain. It was a miracle. Since, he has continued to follow-up, ensuring that I am getting the proper PT and checking to see if I need further treatment and care. I whole-heartedly recommend Doctor Lefkowitz. I finally have my life back. I'm finally on the road to recovery.

Traumatized!!! After having several visits with Mathew Lefkowitz, I was initially impressed. Unfortunately, my last visit was from HELL! In the past, I had fluid extracted from my left knee, BUT... this time, he gave me no anesthetic . In the past, I made it through the procedure with no problem and could walk. Presently, I am getting over the TRAUMA of going through the procedure again, but this time, Lefkowitz did NOT use an anesthetic! Yelled at me while I suffered through procedure, and I could barely walk thereafter. I was in shock for hours. He has NO bed side manner. Just the week (before my horrific experience), I recommended Lefkowitz to a stroke rehab. client of mine. She went to see him and told me she was not impressed with him. He made a sly comment about her insurance. After having seen many doctors she informed me he never touched her knee to exam it and she felt that he was more concerned about her insurance than her as a patient. My advice Stay Away!!!

Only out for the money and is a joke. Gave me wrong procedure with two painful shots that did not help. He is always in a hurry and didn't answer questions.

first visit and new patient. I called the 2nd wk of Apr and I was told they will verify my info and call me back for an appt. the 3rd wk I called to ask what is going. Funny thing nobody could find a record of my call or my info. another wk goes by and finally an appt. Day of the appt I arrive only 5 mins late. fill out the all the paperwork. Then an hour and 22 mins I am called inside. To wait yet again. I finally had enough and walked out. I called my lawyer and told them everything. STAY AWAY

Dr. Lefkowitz is an excellent doctor. He is a true professional. I brought my mother to another pain doctor before Dr. Lefkowitz and he was a total waste of time. Pain management is not just knowledge, it is also skill and finesse. Dr. Lefkowitz has all of this. Dr. Lefkowitz and his staff has always been very kind to my mother and me, and I appreciate that. Yes, you have to wait sometimes, but he is one person and the best. He is a 10 in my book. May God Bless Dr. Lefkowitz!!!
