New York, NY |
patient friendly articulate professional. performed full gi scope.
in Astoria, NY |
he is very thorough esp. compared to a GI i saw previously who could not find anything wrong with me despite a weight loss of 20 lbs and constant diarrhea. dr. lebwhol was able to determine that i have crohn's disease. he is old fashioned polite and takes whatever time is necessary to examine and talk with you. he persists until he finds out what is wrong.
