in Gallatin, TN |
I am a retired nurse and am very picky about which doctors I see and especially which surgeons I allow to perform surgery on me. I had a ruptured cervical disc and needed surgery. A friend had a back disc surgery that failed and Dr Lebow redid her surgery with great results. I saw him and he did my surgery. He has a great bedside manner, very knowledgeable and did a great job on my surgery.

One July morning in 2016, Dr. Lebow preformed my back surgery. I had been suffering for many years and had given up hope of ever feeling good again. But Meeting Dr. Lebow, he gave me hope of being able to walk, go shopping and enjoying life again. Today is September 26th 2016 and I can honestly say I feel like I am 30 again. I can go on trips, long walks and shop. Dr Lebow was my life saver! If you’re looking for a doctor who is caring, knowledgeable and explains it in my terms.... Dr. Lebow!
