She's a terrific doctor.
Amy Lichtenfeld was super professional and insightful. I would highly recommend her and her team!
I have to come fairly frequently for shots and much less frequently for regular appointments so my review is based on the former. I'm always seen quickly and it's easy to get an appointment. Dr. Lichtenfeld is very thorough without wasting your time or hers - her efficiency keeps wait times short but it never feels like the appointment is rushed. I LOVE the nursing staff. They're always incredibly friendly and go out of their way to make visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible. It may seem like a small thing but as someone who sees a lot of doctors, it means a lot to me when a care provider remembers something about me that's not in my medical record.
I've been a patient for 5 years and Dr. Lichtenfeld is always to the point, informative and looking out for my interests. She enrolled me in a program that was outside of her practice, and at her office's loss, so I could get an expensive and effective medicine paid for by insurance. Exemplary of her patient first practice. I'm a fan of hers.
Dr. Lichtenfeld is super thorough and makes sure any and all concerns are addressed!

Dr. Lichtenfeld was very thorough and really was able to help me with my allergy problems. Thought she was just great.
Dr. Lichtenfeld was one of the best doctors I've seen in a long time. I've seen countless medical professionals about my chronic colds, step throat, and sinus infections. I was hoping allergies were to blame, and even though my tests came up relatively clear, she recommended another specialist to help me and I'm seeing her again in a month. She is so thorough and listens and explains so well. I would recommend he to anyone dealing with allergies or sickness that could be contributed to allergies. BEST doctor!!

Dr Lichtenfeld has been my Doctor for 10 years. Highly recommend her!
Very sweet, she does care about the concerns of the patient as well as listens to the problems the patient has with their allergies.
Dr. Lichtenfeld was thorough, efficient and pleasantly conversational during my visit. I would strongly recommend. In her thorough evaluation she managed to detect an underlying condition that had never been brought to my attention previously. She did not have the most sensitive approach when discussing some touchy issues, but was not disrespectful in any way. I just found her to be on the more straightforward end of the spectrum. She followed up personally (twice) to go over test results and to check in regarding treatment she had prescribed. The office was very organized and followed through with several requests that I had made that had to be handled both in the office and after the appointment. They were also very responsive. The practice has a great and easy to use online portal where any results (bloodwork etc) are displayed. Very helpful!
I felt very welcomed by her office, including the receptionist and the nurses. I also felt that I was in good hands with Dr Lichtenfeld. I would recommend her to anyone who needs an allergist.
The doctor took the time to give a full evaluation. The needles were as painless as a needle could be. There were lots of educational materials provided about my allergies. The chair to wait for the allergy shots is like a lazy boy, very comfy. The facilities were very clean. The staff was very careful, caring, and knowledgeable.
This was my first time visiting an Allergist and Dr. Lichtenfeld and everyone in the office was very nice and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Lichtenfeld.
Dr. Lichtenfeld has always been thorough & professional & continues to be a credit to her profession. Very Sincerely, Gloria
Once again Dr. L. and staff visit was, without a doubt, so good with professional care and feeling very comfortable and confident.
Good first visit she was very personable and knowledgeable
Dr. Lichtenfeld was wonderful, I would highly recommend her to anyone. It was my first appoinkr
Dr. Lichtenfeld did a thorough interview before my first consultation and made sure that we had covered everything she needed to know. She explains everything clearly and took time to answer questions. I've already recommended her to one of my colleagues.
I have no worlds to express my most sincere gratitude to Dr. Lichtenfeld. I suffer from Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria (autoinmune and unknown causes) since 2009. She have been able to help me to control the episodes of hives more than 89% with combinations of medicines (most antihistaminic) because he diagnosis in these case is not straightforward. She is a wonderful person, very courteous and professional who listen to you. I highly recommend her!
My allergy misery has forever been turned around by the brilliance of Dr. Lichtenfeld.
Am impressed by her interest and commitment and her ability to communicate on all med. issues. Also her reliability about getting back to me when appropriate
This was my first visit to Dr. Lichtenfeld as my new primary care physician. Her cordial and friendly demeanor put me at ease immediately. I feel as though she had all the time in the world to be sure all the necessary points were covered; never felt rushed. The history and physical exam were thorough and her recommendations made sense.
She is one of the best Doctors I have ever have and I am very happy seen her. Very, courteous and educated, knowledgeable and professional. I suffer from a Chronic Idiopathic (not known) Urticaria, also known as hives, and sometimes have episodes of Angioedema. Her treatment and patience with my Urticaria/Angioedema have been showing progressive effective signs which means less hives flares in my body and less episodes of Angioedema. I totally recommend her!
She did her job
Dr. Lichtenfeld does not have a happy beside manner. Despite my waiting an hour to see her (when I set up an appointment two weeks in advance and told her staff WHY I was coming), she she was cold and unfeeling. Although she apologized for my wait, she acted very annoyed that I did not immediately forgive her for making me an hour late to the rest of my day (because doctors often forget that they are not the only people who work for a living). Additionally, she blamed me for misunderstanding my previous appointment despite her taking no more than five minutes after checking my skin test results to tell me what to do with regards to an allergy I developed at the age of 39. Dr. Lichtenfeld made me feel uneducated because I didn't understand the difference between Lactose Intolerance and Milk allergy (as if they teach you that in college), and was annoyed that I came in for further testing despite her NEVER telling me she tested me for milk allergy during my last appointment. The only things I knew I was tested for were different varieties of fish, but apparently she had tested me for many other things. I was never sent a report, so I had no ability to gain that knowledge without seeing her. My favorite part was when she blamed my doctor of 15 years for not having diagnosed my chronic diarrhea problem, but took no credit for me having told her about the issue. I am not an easy person to please, and I have dealt with many a not-so-friendly physician. Despite my multiple medical issues, I have only ever had one other doctor treat me with less respect or compassion in my 39 years of life.
Always a pleasure meeting with Dr. Lichtenfeld.
She was pleasant, read notes from my previous doctor and did the same. Not particularly interested in me I felt.
Dr. Lichtenfeld have been treating me a severe case of Chronic autoimmune or idiopathic urticaria which came out of the blue Summer 2009. I tried many medications and went to others allergy doctor to no avail. I was very frustrated with this dermatology reaction. My PCP, Dr. Elizabeth Ramos, recommend her to me and since I started seeing her back in early 2013 my hives are more controlled with some combination of antihestaminic and other medicines she sent me. I totally recommend her! JD
Very professional and efficient, great service and smiles all around
Dr. Lichtenfeld is amazing. She is by far the most thorough doctor I've ever visited, and is genuinely concerned about your health and welfare. I can't imagine going to another doctor after having been under her care.
Dr L is always pleasant and professional. I have recommended others to use her as their primary doctor.
I highly recommend Dr. Lichtenfeld. She is smart and has always taken such great care of me. She is a healer - what more could you ask for in a doctor.
Dr Lichtenfeld was thorough and friendly. I felt confident with her care and not at all rushed. Will definitely continue to see her!
Very professional and thorough. Would recommend!
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Lichtenfeld. She was very nice, knowable, and took her time to address all of my issues I was having. She was completely thoughtful and spent time explaining all the different options for my allergies. She even wrote me a prescription for a EpiPen, which I didn't have before. Also, I was told to feel free to call the office to contact Dr. Lichtenfeld if I had any follow up questions. Finally, the office was really clean and nice. The staff was great too!
Dr Lichtenfeld was a very good doctor. She took the time to understand issues and explain conditions. Very caring. She was professional, friendly and down to earth. The office was clean and had comfortable chairs.
She was thorough and professional although the office lacked one of the allergy tests I was looking to get done
excellent care and diagnosis. highly recommending her to friends.
I waited about half an hour in the waiting room and ten more minutes in Dr. Lichtenfeld's office, but once the appointment started, Dr. Lichtenfeld and her staff were professional, friendly, and fast. I would definitely recommend her and will continue seeing her as my allergist.
Dr. Lichtenfeld was very professional and respectful. The wait was a little long but besides that the office was very professional.
Dr. Lichtenfeld seemed very knowledgeable and competent.
I thought Dr. Lichtenfeld was very nice, but she talked extremely fast and I don't really feel like I got answers to my questions. I have odd allergies and it could be just because allergies are so vague in and of themselves, but my allergy testing just didn't seem very conclusive. I thought she was very nice though, so I will go back and use her as my GP.
Aside from a relatively long wait time, the visit was great. The staff are all friendly and Dr. Lichtenfeld took the time to really go through my history before getting started with next-steps.
Dr. Lichtenfeld was very thorough and patient. Her staff was kind and efficient.
She is always very thorough, and really listens to your concerns and addresses them appropriately. Highly recommended!
She really knows what she's doing, looking at an issue from all angles to try to help me. I'm used to more sociable doctors, but I appreciate that she knows what she's doing and is thorough.
It was great - efficient & thorough. I'll definitely be back :).
The doctor was great. Very knowledgable and covered a lot of different treatment options. However, the staff at the front of the office were rude and lazy.
I didn't love her bedside manner and found her to be too rushed. I only saw her because of my limited insurance but switched doctors when my insurance plan changed.
Amy was very helpful and provided a lot of useful information.
Unfortunately, the schedule was backed up and I had a longer than anticipated wait time. But Dr. Lichtenfeld spent time with me, was very thorough, compassionate, and came up with a game plan. The office staff and nurse were all very professional and efficient. I was very pleased with my visit and would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Very thorough assessment and examination process. She is knowledgeable with very attentive care.
Great experience today with Dr. Lichtenfeld. Didn't wait long, the front desk staff was a little pre-occupied with gossip and chit chat then to check me in and take my insurance information but doctor was very thorough and professional. Would definitely recommend.
