I love Dr. Lewitt, even though it had been 9 months since I had been in to see him (100% my fault), he remembered me, my unique situations, and was committed to coming up with a plan to get my treatments back on track.

The first impression of the visit was the staff. Very friendly and efficient! The wait time in waiting room was minimal. And once I got into the exam room- that was even less of a wait, which in my experience isunusual. As far as Dr. Lewitt, cannot say enough good things! Very knowledgeable, super friendly!! Puts you at such ease the minute he walks in the room. Didn’t feel rushed at all. Answered all my questions. And even though what I went in for turned out to be nothing serious, I have every confidence if it would have been I would have been in very good hands! Amazing experience and will definitely be back for my routine check ups!! PS : Would’ve have given more than 5 stars for bedside manner if I could have.

1. Very rushed appointment 2. Bedside manner did not show empathy or concern for my distress with chronic and recent flare-up skin issues 3. Prescribed nearly same treatments I am already doing 4. Did not prefer one of my regimen's ointmentsbut did not provide details as to why 5. Recommended considering a very serious and expensive injection-based treatment that is typically for clients with serious issues; showed the brochure to my Dad who has worse eczema/atopic dermatitis and even his derm wouldn't recommend it to him! 6. Intake form also did not cover serious skin infections and when I asked the doctor where I should note those he said put them under "vaccinations". But they were infections not vaccinations! And then did not inquire further about them, which had a huge impact on my skin/autoimmune health. 7. I also had to repeat my health history various times (was rushed by nurse and didn't get to complete the intake form; none of this information was shared between health providers or reviewed before seeing me): Intake form Nurse Doctor 8. The doctor also said he would return to the room after completing the scripts and he never came back nor did he follow-up with me while checking out. Then when checking out the assistant was not able to confirm the prescriptions the doctor had for me - "he hasn't completed those yet". 9. Other offices are digitally connected so by the time of check-out, my prescriptions are already to the pharmacy and the assistant has all the necessary information. Highly recommend this upgrade if there is the budget.

Great visit with Dr. Lewitt as always! Had to get a mole removed and he explained everything he was doing to make sure I was comfortable and was straight forward and reassuring about next steps. Always makes sure to ask ifthere's anything else he can do, never feel rushed during the appointments

Had an absolutely fantastic experience with Dr. Lewitt and his staff. Not only were they very welcoming and friendly, but I was able to see the doctor early and get through my appointment very quickly. Dr. Lewitt himself is also areally exceptional guy, super sharp and very amiable. He was able to diagnose my issue quickly, concisely explain a treatment plan for me, as well as provide me with information and skin care samples to help me prevent it arising again in the future. And I can say now, 3 weeks later, his diagnosis and treatment choice was spot on and I’m healthy again! Very pleased with my visit. I’ve been to a couple dermatologists in Chicago, his office is by far the best I’ve been to.

Rude staff told me before meeting with the doctor that for (the cost of the visit) I was only allowed to ask a few questions of the Doctor. I found this to be unprofessional and offensive.

Dr. Lewitt is a breath of fresh air. He is specialized in Psoriasis, but an excellent all around dermatologist. My husband also sees him for his own issues with Eczema and always has wonderful things to say. I recommended a friendrecently to Dr. Lewitt for Psoriasis and he can't stop raving about what a great experience he had and how efficient the office runs as a whole. Really one of the best offices in Chicago.
