Patient Comments (9)
New Brunswick, NJ |
The staff is very rude and in appropriate. The staff books me for an appointment at 9 am in the morning and calls back two days later to change the appt. for 12:45. I explained i was unable to make appt. and staff engaged in a rude tone and would not accept my answer attempting to force me into the other unscheduled appt. Handled very unprofessional. As far as the doctor goes he is extremely out-dated and does not explain well as to the patients care or needs. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.

What a crappy doctor, staff, and office administrator! This place is a JOKE! Doctor should find a new staff, cleaning crew, and a new manager. She is god awful and needs to be reported to Department of Labor for patient abuse. Makes people wait WEEKS for disability form and makes up all crazy kinds of rules for practice. NEVER AGAIN.
My son is the Pt and we always respected the offices' valuable time. Today, we were there and were told a new referral was needed. Joanna called yesterday at 4:48 for today's 10am appt. My VM was full but it would've been late to get a referral. She should've told us at the last visit or at least called again so that I wouldn't have taken my son out of school and wasted my valuable time. She never came to window to apologize, she was telling another girl everything. Dr. never returned my call.

Doctor is incompetent, He dozes off when you're talking. The office staff is rude, but only because you can clearly see them ask the office manager questions regarding billing, scheduling, doctors notes , etc and you can clearly see her from the patient window advising the staff what to tell them but will not come out of her office to speak to you. The office Manager is useless , rude, no etiquette, I am surprised she's still there with all the complaints I've heard.

I never had an issue with the office staff here, they have always been kind & considerate towards all patients of this Dr.. The issue I have at hand is while my charts, meds, care and blood work is being evaluated by this "medical professional" he kept falling asleep in the exam room. On several occasions I had to make some type of comment in order to wake him up. He even misdiagnosed my bloodworm results as I had my regular Dr. evaluate it and she pointed out his numerous and egregious errors.

Worse staff and Doctor ever!!!
Since no details were given, we can only state we have a large pile of patient comments in our office thanking the doctor and staff for their outstanding care and service. Every patient is given the individualized attention their condition requires; however when one patient wants others to be pushed aside to accommodate their personal "wishes" rather than "needs," we have to be considerate of ALL our patients. Your medical care is too important to be trusted to internet comments!

i would NOT recommend anyone to this doctor! he has absolutely NO bedside manner whatsoever. A doctor is supposed to make you feel comfortable but he is cold and in a rush to get you out. Appointments are made for nothing because you are not seen until an hour later. the staff tries to be nice but then they are forced by the office manager to be rude or say rude things to patients. The office manager is the absolute rudest person in the world. i have so much more to say but not enough characters
in Branchburg, NJ |
I definitely would recommend Dr. Lebovicz to family and friends. He is highly knowledgeable, very patient, answers questions in understandable terms, and he cares! Following my surgery for a fractured femur in January 2016, he visited me every single day at the hospital and then during my entire time at the rehabilitation center. I was there for 12 days beyond my hospital stay. His staff is very friendly and helpful. I have continued to see the doctor for follow-up visits.

At first my husband and I were not going to use Dr. Lebovicz because of reports we read online. Sometimes opinions of others affect the decision another person makes for their own life. However I am truly grateful that we listened to a nurse at our local hospital and went to see Dr. Lebovicz. From the moment we spoke to the first office staff to the moment we met the doctor personally, we have nothing but great things to say. Everyone was nice and very professional. The dr was superb.
