Patient Comments (2)
New York |
I never actually got to meet him. Showed up at 2:50 for a 3:00 appointment. At 3:30 I asked the two useless secretaries to look up from their phones and let me know what was going on. They told me there were still two people ahead of me waiting to be seen. Asked if they could provide some sort of eta and they told me "it takes different time for each patient." At 4:00 I left. There was still one person waiting ahead of me. Worst time management and patient management I've ever experienced.

Doctor was extremely attentive, explained things in a thorough and easy to understand way. Made every effort to get surgery scheduled quickly. Met with me before surgery and called me at home the next day to see how I was feeling. I would highly recommend Dr. Lebowitz
