Dr. Leftkowitz is very thorough and compassionate. His nuturing and compassionate nature puts me at ease whenever I have a procedure done. I highly recommend seeing him for your pain management needs.

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!!!

Dr. Leftkowtiz has been helping my Dad manage his chronic lower back pain for some years now. He is very attentive and caring. My Dad has pounced around doctors to get relief for his back and I believe he has found a great home with Dr. Leftkowitz. His office staff are very kind, responsive and helpful and the wait is not too bad. Go with Dr. Leftkowitz if you need exceptional pain management. Thank you Dr. Leftkowitz!

I have been here several times, but I will never return after today. I waited an hour and when I politely asked how much longer it would be the doctor jumped in and said just reschedule. Then he asked me to wait and then proceeded to lecture me on how he was just one person. It was unnecessary and rude. It got worse when his office manager started yelling at me for requesting my copay back. He was beyond awful and I cannot believe the doctor allows him to speak to (former) patients that way.
