Dr. Leibowitz' surgery left me in pain for 2 years, and two more surgeries to repair the damage. He told me that he was going to do a minor procedure to open a tear duct in my eye. Instead it was an operation in which he drilled a hold in the side of my nose and inserted a tube. After the surgery he told me not to blow my nose or sneeze for a month. I called his office with questions and was told I had to wait two weeks. I went to another doctor, received medication, and 2 more surgeries.

I LOVE Dr. Leibowitz! I was referred to him for an eyelid lift and brow lift by my opthamologist. I was nervous, because afterall it is my face and I didn't want to look like a scary clown LOL! My procedure was done in June & I couldn't be HAPPIER with my results! Dr. Leibowitz took the time to answer all of my questions & put my mind at ease. I had the surgery @ UCLA. His entire staff in Vegas & Cali were some of the nicest, caring, helpful employees I've ever seen in a Dr. office. Go see HIM!

Dr. Leibowitz is a sneaky person and creepy. He scheduled my follow-up to my procedure to 95 days after the procedure, so that the fee could not be included in the procedure cost. The follow-up must be 90 days or less from the procedure to be considered a follow-up with out a charge. Yet he had it scheduled it for 5 days later, and when I called his office to complain, he told the receptionist to tell me that he would not remove the charge and that he was due the co-pay as a new appointment.

I was told that L. had a bad bedside manner and that is true. I was told that he was super competent, completely untrue. Firstly, he did not know what surgery I was having when he popped in pre-op because he didn't have my file. He was performing surgery on 8 others that day so getting the right chart was fairly critical. I went home after surgery and my eye bled out and I was taken to ER via ambulance. No call, no show..ever. Now, it turns out I have to have the surgery redone. Run...fast.
