in Lebanon, TN |
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!
