SHE IS A VERY HELPFUL DOCTOR.
Dr. Lehach is very kind and informative. She was upfront about what was going on and what needed to be done to solve it.
She was very honest, offered referral, and she even provided detailed answers about my concerns. I do not like her office space
She is very professional and friendly. She made me feel comfortable and that she cares about my health
She was very HELPFUL and her staff was also.
Helpful with referrals & answers
It was fine.
The visit went ok. I didn't like the office at which I was examined in. I also didn't like the entire doctors office. In addition to appearance I didn't like the fact that I had to go to another facility to get blood work done.
Amazing doctor. Staff was very friendly.
Always listens, always professional
I love Dr. Lehach and her staff. She is very friendly and knowledgeable.
She is great and friendly
Easy to talk to and she listens
Great doctor and staff!!!
Dr. Lehach is very energetic and friendly. I only go for my annual visit and she gives me the referrals for the OB-GYN and Eye doctor. Dr. Lehach is always available if you need to ask her questions. If she's not available, she'll tell you ahead of time that she'll be on vacaction. Great doctor! 100% recommended
Love love Dr Lehach!!!!! No wait time ! Great beside manner! And lovely staff !! I will highly reccomend her ! I love the fact that she works late !
Visit was great. I finally found a great Doctor.
She. Quickly took care of my needs And gave me some seggestions to my astma control medications She gave me a new meds thats working shes right on point with her specailty Thank you Doc.
Not great will allergies, or know anything about them much, but all I know is that I suffer from them all year. The doctor recommended me for an allergy test, so my first session I did the scratch test and found out I was allergic to mold, dust, and pollen. My next visit will be food allergy testing; which I can't wait for. I was prescibed medication & I took them as recommended; they helped alot! Next morning I woke up and felt better than the past few months I been suffering. She's the best, its like she totally understands you!
They could not verify my insurance online, therefore, the wait was longer than expected otherwise the visit was fine.
Dr. Lehach is so down to earth. Very professional, courteous and attentive. I love the way she relates to your illness, she explains everything to you in manner that you can understand and answer every question you ask her with accuracy. I love her.
She was very involved. Office staff were excellent. Although the wait room is quite small, the staff make you feel at home.
Shes knows all of my medical condition and is attending all of the medical problems that i have.
She was very approachable and very nice, she loves dogs....
My visit was present she explained everything to me
It is always a pleasure when I see the doctor and her staff. Courteous professional.
office can use some renovation but pleasant staff.
Excellent service. Helps to make a Zocdoc appt. Speeds up wait time.
A very wonderful doctor too
Dr. Lehach is always amazing. My entire family goes to her.
A very wonderful doctor too
A very wonderful doctor too
While she may be a good doctor, every time I've gone to her the wait has been atrocious. The office is busy but waiting for two hours is either result of carelessness or over booking...probably both. If you want to have to clear your schedule because you have no idea when you might actually be seen then I'd say go to her, otherwise, there are plenty of great doctors in the area with less of a ridiculous wait time. Remember, she is a good doctor but no one should be waiting for hours to be seen when you made an appointment. This isn't an ER...
I liked her,and I will go back to see her.
I really like the fact she's very professional but the waiting time is ridiculous then she only see me for 5 minutes honestly if she had patients with appoitments is better to take care those before anything else as priority Less time waiting
Dr Joan and staff are the best. Second to none!!! You're treated like a friend when you go there to see the dr rather then a patient. She takes her time and answers all your questions and doesn't make you feel rushed. Just make an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Even though, I waited very long to see the doctor, it was well worth the wait. The doctor was very nice and she made me feel comfortable and I felt that she was a partner in my health decisions. She listened and she came up with suggestions and alternatives to attain my future wellness. I am very pleased with this visit.
Little miscommunication with paperwork. After that everything moved along. Dr. Joan is very great spirited passionate and easy to speak to. The facility is cramped, bring water.
It was really great to be there
Shes understands your situation. However side concersations are done amongst her and her staff. Dr.joan was 22 mins late for my 9am appointment and I still havent been seen and she still engaged in a side converstation.
This location very small couldn't fit even fit the stroller in , clients had to get out of their sits to let me get passed , very hot as well , they had one fan ( oh. But the front desk will sell you water ) , employees seemed extremely distracted. And delayed in getting work done . As I was being asked for documents and questions, she was on the phone .
The girls at the desk making too much noise. Its a medical service not a market
Love her! Very sweet and carring. <3
The ladies working front desk are very unprofessional. They were laughing and talking very loud while there was a pack house full of patients waiting to be seen. The doctor was over a hour and half late being the office opened at 8am and she strolled in at 935. The office isn't off standard procedures. No vision test. No weight scale. She typed in answers in her "notepad" on her computer rather than a data entry system. I understand she's a private doctor but her office set up and procedures are unacceptable. I doubt I'll go there ever again.
This doctor was incredibly professional, her staff was very very nice and accommodating. It may not be the most glamorous looking office on the outside, but like great hole in the wall restaurants of New York City, It's what's inside that counts.
I waited almost an hour that was disappointing. However, when I went into the doctor's room she was very welcoming and thorough.
She's awesome A+ Doctor
Not a traditional doctor office setting as far as decor and office furniture and was a bit cramped. Nonetheless the service was good, the environment was practical and the waiting time was average for a doctor's appointment; there was about an hour wait depending on your visit reason. Overall Dr. Lehach is recommended.
She was very helpful and courteous
Dr Lehach saw me quickly even though the office looked really crowded. She saw me quickly and was very helpful. Would recommend her to anyone!
The office staff was professional. Dr. Lehach was great. She was very attentive and referred me to all the doctor's I needed to see. Made sure I had my blood work done. Told me to take her business card which had her personal number and email address and said that I can reach her at anytime. I really was comfortable with her. The parking and waiting time was a little crazy.
She is amazing. I love her. She is sweet and helpful. She knows what she's doing.
Todo muy bien excelente
Dr Joan is the best doctor I've ever been to. She's the nicest most professional physician I've treated with. Although you sometimes need to wait for her to see you a few minutes in her office, she takes her time and never rushes you and answers all your questions and takes care of you without any pressure, rushing you, or making you feel like you don't matter. I highly recommend Dr Lehach. Carl A.
Me gustó mucho su profesionalidad, es excelente
Shes great very nice.
excellent i love my baby doctor
When I arrived there was a line coming down the office and into the hall of the building. The waiting area was very narrow and cramped, I had to pardon myself multiple times to avoid stepping on people and their belongings. When I checked in at the front desk the receptionist was talking to a male co-worker in Spanish and made me feel that I was interrupting and inconviencing them by checking in. It was only once they knew I scheduled the appointment thru zoc.doc that they began being nice to me.
She was very helpful. The wait time was longer than I expected which is about the same for any doctor visits, but when she met me, she was great. Any questions I had, I spoke to her and she helped with everything.
Dr.Joan Lehach was very professional very attentive,Took time to explain my conditions so I can have a better understanding.Dr Lehach has a great personality and made me feel very comfortable when normally I don't feel comfortable at the doctor office !!Staff were very polite and professional!
office looks crazy staff is friendly looks unorganized and wait is long
Professional and pleasant. Didn't feel rush.
Dr. Lehach does not rush her appointments, and gives her patients full attention. Am glad she is my primary care physician
She was a very caring doctor. She listened well to my symptoms and diagnosed me correctly. I would highly recommend her to everyone.
The nurses were all extremely friendly and helpful. Dr Lehach was fantastic. The only downside, as other reviewers have mentioned was the wait; I was there for well over 2 hours. She does see walk-ins and there were a few emergencies so I'm assuming that was the reason. Be advised, the waiting area can get cramped. Other then the wait and the waiting the area, everything was great. Would definitely recommend.
Well it was nice. I did not like the wait but the doctor was so nice to me i would not mind the wait.
Very knowledgable and compassionate.
She didn't even wait until I sat down to ask me why I had came, I felt like I wasn't listened to and all she did was pull out her prescription pad to give me the things she said would help, but after waiting 30min. The visit took a total of 5minutes.
She was very extremely nice and staff was very pleasant. She was very attentive to my concerns.
Overall a pleasant experience. Wait time was a bit longer than ideal, but service was excellent. I would recommend.
She was very helpful and took care of everything I needed. I will definitely be back.
Dr Lehach is the best!! Carl-
Doctor Joan is the best!!
She showed great bedside manner and was helpful in trying to pinpoint the cause of my allergies. The staff were professional and did their best to accommodate the patients despite being overwhelmed. The one major issue that I had was the wait time. I had an appointment for 9:30 and got out by 2:00.
She is an awesome doctor who truly cares about her patients
The office was very cluttered and dirty. Dr.Lehach was very friendly. However, I felt rushed and also as though she is more of an allergist than any other type of doctor. I think the reviews are very misleading, I will have to make another appointment with a different doctor,
Dr. Joan Lehach was amazing with my infant daughter! She is overall very knowledgeable and cares about her patients. I highly recommend!!!
Dr.Lehach really cares about her patients and Im glad I found a primary that can help and direct me in the right direction. I am confident in the care she provides. The staff is wonderful too. You get that vibe that they are like a family and that's awesome. Id recommend anyone to her.
I have been a patient of Dr. Lehach for close to 20 years. It trust her completely as my general doctor and allergist. She is absolutely brilliant and down to earth. Dr. Lehach tell it like it is and takes clear steps to help get on the road to recovery.
Great people who love doing their job !! I took my two year old daughter a couple of times and i actually went today she is listed in the Bronx and I can't complain I love they way Joan takes care of her patients especially toddlers. She explains to me everything .
Personnel was very pleased, and it was very convenience
Dr Lehach was wonderful she answered all my questions the front desk girls were very nice and helpful also the only bad thing i was have to say is that the wait time is beyond HORRIBLE i waited a little over 2 hrs for my annual physical that only took 5 minutes and i had an appointment.
Just went there once. My first impression of her was not the best. I just felt like she didn't care to listen and just wanted to prescribe me something and have me leave the office. It may sound silly, but I have a phobia to clowns and her office is full of clown pictures and statues so that was not a pleasant experience. I just thought it was not proffesional and did not feel comfortable there.
The doctor is friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The wait time at her office is ridiculous. It doesn't matter if you are early or on time you will still wait for a minimum of one hour. ??
very welcoming and professional.
Dr. Lehach was extremely informative about my weight management also I was impress with having to do labs first and formost before starting the injection regimen. She also gave educational hand outs on weight management and a dietary list to follow daily also a contact number to reach her. In all I was totally impress with this doctor.
I've only had 1 successful appointment with Dr. Lehach. The 1st one I waited over an hour to be seen, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt since it was my first time seeing her to start allergy testing. Today was to start the 2nd round. But that didn't happen. I arrived at 10:10am for a 10:30 appointment. By 12pm, I was still waiting. I had to go to the receptionist to ask where my place was in line. Only to be told there were overbookings, walkins and 2 other 10:30am appointment patients to be seen. In total I waited ALMOST 2 HOURS, including my early arrival time. I had somewhere else to be and left in disgust. She seems like a great doctor, But the waiting area is quite small, has insufficient seating and their booking policy sucks. Waiting over 60 minutes for an appointment in unacceptable, IMO. I will go back to my original allergist, who was more efficient, has a less chaotic waiting area and is more efficient overall. NOT RECOMMENDED.
Couldn't get my vaccination!
Great Doctor and I would recommend her to all patients. She is the best I've ever been to. I'm 59 years old.
It was great
DR.LEHACH IS WONDERFUL. I'VE ONLY SEEN HER ONCE BUT SHE WAS SO WELCOMING,. THAT I BECAME COMFORTABLE IMMEDIATELY. SHE WAS VERY INFORMATIVE, FRIENDLY, AND WELL VERSED IN HER FIELD.
SHE IS A GOOD DOCTOR.. SHE NOT BLAND SHE HAS PERSONALITY. THE WAIT MAY BE A LITTLE ANNOYING AT TIMES, BUT FROM MY UNDERSTANDING SHE IS A INTERNIST AS WELL. SO AS LONG AS I HAVE ME PHONE AND A FULL BATTERY I DONT MIND WAITING. OVER ALL I LIKE HER.
I waited for more than 2 1/2 hours for my appointment. My appointment was at 2:00pm but I was seen until 4:35. Once I did get called in to see the doctor I was in there for about 15 minutes. She seems to be nice but I can't wait that long to be seen by the doctor.
Good, the only thing that I didn't like was she did not ask me about me medical horror or if I'm taking medications before she prescribed me am medication.
I was looking for a primary care doctor she is more of an allergist. But she helped me out alot
The doc was very helpful and informative! Her office was very friendly and inviting.
It was great
Dr. Joan was able to make me feel relaxed talking to a professional person and she was easy to understand! She has no problems answering your questions..( I'm relatively sure I asked some questions twice)..My visit went very well!
Dr. Lehach was ver personable and once I was seen, I was in and out in about half an hour for my consultation. I did wait about an hour after my scheduled appointment time, though.
She was great! She was spunky and down to earth. I felt very comfortable.
Dr. Lehach is very sympathetic & empathetic . She takes the time to listen to ones issues and/or concerns which, doctors hardly do now a days.
Very helpful, kind and informative. Long wait is not the doctor's fault, and is well worth it.
Yesterday was the shortest time I had to wait for my son to get his allergy shot. She is usually very packed but that is usually when you have to see Dr. Lehach and not the nurse. My son has autism. She made him feel extemely comfortable. All the ladies including the office manager are very sweet. Definitely recommend.
Love her upfront perosnally and her bedside manner. Her strive to help with your concern as well.
She was very attentive to my husband and I concerns. Will def return to her !
The office is located in the building where the suit store Portabella is, big yellow building on the 2nd floor, in case your GPS tries to send you to one of the Parkchester buildings. Wait time was an hour and 10 minutes, pretty ridiculous. The actual appt time was 7 minutes. Dr. Lehach herself was very nice and personable. She diagnosed me fairly quickly (turns out what I thought was serious, isn't, I confirmed via Google images!), offered me a business card that has her home # in case it gets worse, asked me if I wanted the day off the next day because of my condition (I regretfully declined as I HAD to go into work... but that was nice as I've never had a doctor suggest I stay home because of a health matter), and sent me on my merry way. All in all, very nice visit with the doctor but the wait time was atrocious.
she is awesome, very personable and knowledgeable, definitely recommend her!!!
I was nervous at first because there were at least 15 people waiting by the time I arrived, but my appointment time was honored and Dr. Lehach was stellar. Her bedside manner was amazing. I felt cared for without the extra fuss. She was direct yet kind, and for someone who hasn't had a PCP in a long while I knew instantly she was it. Definitely understood why so many people were waiting for her. I definitely reccomend her for all ages!
Dr. Lehach is so sweet and she really made my son feel at ease. My son is autistic so that was really a big plus. Both the nurse and the medical receptionist are both pleasant. The wait time can be a little longer but it is much quicker when you just see the nurse for allergy shots.
The receptionist is lovely. However, the waiting area is horrible. The waiting time (even with an appointment) is ridiculous. Too many people gather around the receptionist's desk socializing which is not condusive for personal information. I also noticed people who either came in at a later time &/or had a later appointment time ( they mentioned their appointment time) given priority.
No even three min
Dr. Lehach just has a pleasant presence. My son has autism and he felt at ease with her. Yes there is a wait time but it is allergy season, so she is very busy. Both the medical assistant and receptionist are very friendly.
She was excellent results good
Great doctor, shows concern, pays attention and assures you that she will find a solution for your needs.
Secretary was extremely professional and nice. So was the doctor.
Worst doctor's office I've ever seen. The receptionist was cursing in English and Spanish. Dr. Lehach does not practice HIPAA laws. I was able to hear all the conversations she had with other patients from the waiting area! I just had to walk away...
The expeirence was comfortable.
My husband has been to this office numerous times in approximately a months' time with no relief of his allergy/sinus problems. An allergy test was completed but results and supported documentation were not received - even after requesting the above from both the Dr & the staff. He didn't care for the Dr's bedside manner as well. Such a waste of time and insurance!
Excellent office , help me with exactly what I needed
Doctor Lelach was professional, honest and caring. She even told me to call her if I had any concerns or questions. Would highly recommend her!!!!
She is friendly, personable and knowledgeable!
Dr. Lehach was incredible. She was pleasant and made me feel extremely comfortable. Very professional and a courteous
the waiting time sucks. But Dr. Lehach is very lovely. I recommend her!!!
The wait time was awful as it was very crowded. The doctor takes walks ins in high volumes. However, I was very pleased with the disposition of everyone who worked there. Dr. Lehach was courteous, kind, and understanding.
Wait time was a bit too long when there only a few people there..Doctor seemed a bit preoccupied with other things i didnt feel like i got the attention i needed as a new patient..not sure if i would go back
I went in to see the doctor because I had symptoms of the flu: Pro: -She was very nice and curteous -she correct about my illness and how long I would be out of work for Con: -we met in her office, not an examination room -she didn't examine me -Didn't take weight or height (no information) - I told her i felt feverish but she didn't take my temperature My final rating is that she was so/so.
Excellent visit and a very caring and professional doctor...
It was good. I was running late because of the snow but my experience overall was good.
Dr. Lehach is really great and straight to the point. She gave great advice on hair growth information even though it is not her speciality. I will definitely be going back to her.
There is a huge communication gap observed between Testing Laboratory & Doctor. Doctors office told to contact with Laboratory to make an appointment for testing and Laboratory customer service told make Fax documents by Doctors office to laboratory. It is really hard time.
The waiting area is very small and disorganized. The place reeked of cigarettes and someone was smoking an e-cig in the hallway and no one stopped her. It was over packed and not fairly cleaned. The staff was not but I will not return.
Shes pleasant and knew exactly what I had
She is very nice. I will go back again
Dr. Lehach was patient, personable, and caring. Her staff was very professional and patient as well.
I have enjoyed my visits so far with Dr.Lehach. The girl at the front desk is nice, as well as the nurse who administers the allergy shots. The wait time can be long, so try to go during the "off-hours", which the receptionist told me is around 3-4pm usually. The doctor is straightforward and honest, which I like, but some people may find it too harsh. She is very understanding and sympathizes with your concerns, and ultimately just wants to help alleviate symptoms. I believe she also collects clown trinkets, there are SO many in her office. Very nice Doctor!
The visit was horrible. If you are not a medicad or medicare patient beware. Private insurance is not welcome. The staff is not very knowledgable and very rude. I would not recommend that office to anyone. It is unfortunate that the best medical care is located in Manhattan. I was told by the staff that all they care about in that office is getting paid. GO TO ANOTHER OFFICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The staff was very pleasant. I was worried the office would not be wheelchair accessible but there is an elevator and they were very accommodating in letting me Dr. Lehach was very sweet, professional and approachable. She is accessible by email which is very rare! I would highly recommend.
I'm very pleased... She is a wonderful doctor... I call them and they gave me all the information that I needed ... Doctor Joan is the best!!!
She made me feel comfortable and helped me with my situation
very nice and very prefetional ...
IT WAS VERY GOOD THANKS.
GREAT, VERY PROFESSIONAL, FRIENDLY, JUAST WONDERFUL... THANKS, GOD BLESS ALL THE STAFFS..
IT WAS VERY GOOD I LIKE HER THANKS DESMOND.
This has been the best doctors visit I have been to in NY since I have been here. I recommend her to everyone. I greeted excellently and with respect. I definitely will be going back again.
Unprofessional, over 2 hour wait in a small hallway, packed chairs and no air flow in the summer.
Doc and staff were great.Very knowledgeable ! Great bedside manor!
Efficient, I was very pleased.
It was quick and the doctor was able to determine my condition quickly.
Very Professional! Great Doctor!
Great lady knows her profession...VERY WELL!!!
My visit with Dr. Lehach was good but the wait time was long.
the waiting for pretty long considering I scheduled an appointment and seen almost an hour later. but once I got pass the waiting, I was in and out in literally 5 minutes.
The doctor was very friendly...I was nervous and she made me feel comfortable...The wait time was a little long, but it was worth the wait...I already recommended her to a friend.
I had a long wait as a new patient but the doctor was worth the long wait, very informative and helpful.
Great personality. Shared lots of information and very open with patients. She made me feel at ease and like a close friend.
Excellent as always!!
She was a nice physician but she seems to be rushing in her check up with me I was expecting that she will let me lie down and check my breast , abdomen as part of my check up but it didn't happened !but she was accommodating though!
It was my first visit and i felt like i've known her for a long time. She's smart, pleasant, and very understanding. We talked for a few minutes and she inspired me. It's worth the wait!
I learned more about my condition in 20 minutes with Dr. Lehach than I had learned with my previous doctor in 12 years.
Dr. Lehach is the best!! Highly recommend her!!
Very good information as usual. Dr. Lehach always takes her time to help me make better choices so I can get better.
She is very nice and a great doctor and in any moment she and her staf help me with my medical ensurance,I am happy with her.
She was very friendly and warm with my 5 year old daughter. There were a lot of people there before for me and it did take a while to be seen, but I am glad she didn't go to lunch when here lunch break was scheduled...she waited till everyone was seen.
The doctor seemed very knowledgable in her practice
Dr. Lehach demonstrates professionalism and expertise in her field. I look forward to the treatment she has recommended.
Dr. Lehach is very friendly and easy to talk to. Excellent advice all the time. I feel very comfortable talking to her. I would highly recommend her especially for weight management.
There was hardly any seating room and the hallway was very narrow. The receptionist was thrown in the corner and really was no privacy if you wanted to talk privately with the receptionist. LOng wait and didn't understand how patients were being called.
Dr. Lehach was a true pro and very gentle and friendly. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
I thought her office was extremely nice and courteous. Dr. Lehach was accurate and seemed to prescribe the best medication for my allergies. I really am going to look into becoming my dermintologist.
muy profesional y humana
I didn't mind a long wait because her beside manner was very personal. It was my first appointment and I felt like I have been seeing her for years. I would recommend her to all my family, friends and colleagues in a heart beat.
She is very knowledgeable, and efficient.
The Doctor is very nice and informative but the wait to be seen was over an hour. It seems that the organization needs to be better.
We were new so the wait was a bit long but I was very pleased with the service we received so it was well worth the waiting time. Everyone in the office is very friendly.
Professional and relaxing
Helpful and caring! Answered my questions and made excellent recommendations!! I highly recommend her!
it was professional... very good.
Dr. Lehach is extremely professional and nice. She made it seem like I was the most important patient ever. Totally would recommend her and go back to her.
Dr. Joan is very professional, personable, and knowledgeable!
Very insightful and nice.
Dr. Lehach is a relatable Dr. She is transparent and real. She does not fit in a box and is willing to go the extra mile. She is unique.
the wait was long but there was something that came up and needed to be handle and she apologized for the wait and I can't fault her due to the issue in hand.
Excellent as usual!
She pays attention to every detail and all of your complaints. She is precise. I went to three doctors before her for an ongoing cough which I was told by doctors at a very prestigious hospital was only allergies but no treatment or tests were done. Dr. Lehach took the time out to listen, do testing and found a solution for a treatment that began working immediately as prescribed. I'm not sending my entire family to her. She's one of the best.
It was to the point
She was very nice and I received good positive feed back. Looking forward on this journey with Dr. Lehach.
Pleasant Doctor. Really understood what my son was going through. I recommend her to other moms.
First impression: office could use some work, some livening up. Patients are seated in a narrow hallway on plastic lawn chairs. After this, I wasn't expecting much. Dr. Lehach was no frills and all business, straight to the point. While she was not particularly unfriendly, I do wish that she had not seemed as rushed and indulged in making her patients more comfortable. However, she seemed to take more time with older patients of her... which I suppose is a good thing. I was impressed with her knowledge and would definitely go back, despite the small flaws.
She was apparently overbooked during her morning so that meant that she was frazzled for my afternoon appointment. Her bedside manner took a significant hit and she just seemed to be ready to get me out of her office so that she could get to her next appointment. I wouldn't have guessed that this was the same doctor that I had seen in the past. Night and day.
I enjoyed meeting my new physician Dr. Lehach. She is now my new internist and my allergist.
Other than the wait, my visit with Dr. Lehach was pleasant. I would recommend her to a friend.
