I spoke to Dr Lichtenstein on 11/13/18 in regards to a procedure done to me on 9/28/18. On 9/28/18 I was seen by one of his Doctors Dr. Mervin Danilewitz at Mercy Philadelphia Hospital 501 S. 54th Street. It was the worst experience I had in my life. Dr. Lichtenstein states that he could not find a consent form for the procedure also Dr. “D” states he came to see me on 9/29/18 in my hospital room which he didn’t. This doctor did a full colon procedure on me with biopsy without any anesthesia.

These surveys are not good because the doctor is excellent but a lot of the office staff are lazy and don't get messages to the doctor... or when they do it's the wrong message and the doctor will call questioning the message and then i tell him what I called for and it just makes more work for the doctor. Also they don't put the test results in the computer so he has to look everything up while I'm there instead of being able to see it in my chart like it is supposed to be.

I went to Dr. Lichtenstein' office in hopes to find a caring physician. Unfortunately, I saw quite the opposite- while he was professional to me, he was degrading to his office staff for making mistakes and even using profanity towards them. I witnessed him also yelling at his young medical students. I will never go back as this is not a physician of character. There are compassionately physicians I rather have to handle my health care.
