Didn't feel heard in my appointment (stated repeatedly I was having metal reactions and extreme sensitivty, was ignored, led to much wasted time and pain using inaccurate testing methods), wasn't given results in a clear manner, still feelingpain in my arm more than four weeks later from methods used. Phone exchange for results equally disappointing. Many of my friends pointed out that these methods were outdated. I went to another doctor to review results and found out that a majority of the testing needed was not done on my blood tests, so had to redo those. Truly a horrible experience. Found a new provider.

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 wastingyour 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 Icould get an expensive and effective medicine paid for by insurance. Exemplary of her patient first practice. I'm a fan of hers.

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 cameup 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 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!
