Dr Lefkof is highly professional. He doesn't spend time on speculation or conjecture. Just the facts. He's aggressive in getting those facts, which is good if you're a patient. He treated me for a gastro ailment over the course of 9months. When it got serious, he was calling me personally from his cell phone on a Sunday to check up on me. I will never forget that. Dr. Lefkof is not necessarily known for being chummy, but in the moment of truth, he's as responsive and caring as any doctor I've ever worked with. If you want scientific, to the point, aggressively seeking information, Dr Lefkof is for you. If you want a new friend and to spend an hour chatting, this is not the clinic or doctor for you. I highly recommend Dr Lefkof.

He was OK. He was very impolite, no bedside manner what so ever. Extremely dry. Just told me what I needed, and left the room right away. Staff was friendly though, pretty much only plus.

Office only accepts cash, doesn't know how to use Zocdoc website, and doesn't have an office email address. Rude office staff. Very outdated office, embarrassment to the hospital they are associated with.

DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR! They made me pay for my visit then billed my insurance full price! I wondered why they only accept cash or check, now I know. They are obviously scamming insurance companies. I have reported them already.

Like a lot of other reviews have stated, Dr. Lefkof is to-the-point and all business. Personally, I like that. I felt like he knew what he was doing and like I was in great hands. He wasn't shy about ordering acolonoscopy for me right away, so he could get to the root cause of my issue. I would definitely see him again if I needed care.
