Very efficient visit, Dr. Lewitt and I discussed three alternative methods of treatment for my acne and gave his detailed recommendation. I felt very comfortable asking questions during my visit and am looking forward to seeing an improvement in my skin over the course of treatment.

Had yet another great experience with Dr. Lewitt. He's great at listening to concerns and offering multiple solutions dependent on preferences and what my insurance would cover. I truly appreciate having a conversation and feeling like a valued human, rather than just being another item to check off the list.

Personable but unfailingly professional. Dr Lewitt has a great bedside manner. His office is run with the highest degree of professionalism and precision while still being friendly. He is always prompt. Appointments on time and on point.I wish every doctor’s office ran like this one. He explains things as he goes. At my latest appointment, he identified things he needed to remove for biopsy. Procedure was explained and executed quickly and with care. He checked in to make sure I knew what was happening and that I was ok. I like that he and his nurse both repeated simple post appointment instructions at different times during the appointment. That helps them stick. Highly recommend.

Dr. Lewitt and staff are polite and welcoming. The appointment felt a bit hurried to me, but having never seen a dermatologist before I have nothing to compare it to. Dr. Lewitt explained what all my "spots and dots" were andassured me I am OK as long as I continue to have annual skins screenings. They even had time to remove two small growths which was great - however one area only had a tiny band aid applied which bled through all over my jeans. :( Ultimately I would give them another visit, the competence is what is most important and I felt that the team were overall above board.

Dr. Lewitt is great! Friendly and professional, he quickly diagnosed and gave me effective treatment my issue. His office staff at Ill. Derm. Institute in the Chicago Loop, however, have some organizational issues. At the time of my first visitI was treated rudely by the receptionist, who was making confusing remarks about my insurance coverage. A nurse took the receptionist aside and apologized to me personally -- problem solved, no hard feelings. As I was leaving we booked a follow-up appointment for a month later. When I arrived for my next appt the office door was closed and locked. I knocked, called, and waited for around 20 minutes outside of the office. I could hear someone talking inside but they did not respond to my knocks or phone calls. I later came to find out that they had not put my follow-up appointment in their booking system. They wasted my time.

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.
