      Dr. Lebovicz says

      Satisfaction surveys collected in our office on a daily basis show extreme satisfaction with the care and handling each patient receives.  (Feel free to ask to see them!)  Please be aware that many of the comments placed are from ex-employees dismissed for not providing an acceptable level of service. Excessive wait times only occur when a patient is added as an emergency to a full schedule or patient hours are interrupted by Emergency Room calls.  It is hard to respond to general ratings which do not display individual comments, but, as stated, surveys collected on a daily basis in our office show dramatically different responses.  We do our best to provide the care each individual needs without negatively impacting the care of others and invite you to see for yourself.

      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

      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
