Patient Comments (2)

Both my husband and me have used Dr. Lidofsky for procedures. Nurses and staff are friendly and efficient and Dr. Lidofsky personally comes in after the procedure for a short visit to check on you and give recommendations if needed until the labs come back.

My wife and I both see Dr. Lidofsky and have been impressed by his and his staffs professionalism. After one gets past the unpleasantness of a colonoscopy prep it is quite easy for the actual procedure. We have been his patients for the past twenty years.
