I went in for a salivary gland stone removal (which i included in the notes when I scheduled the appointment), Dr. Lebovics was friendly, but it didn't seem like he knew what he was doing. He took some long thin tool, shoved it in my salivary duct, pulled it out and said "I think I got it." It was swollen, so i couldn't feel if the stone was still there. He started to massage it, said he didn't feel it anymore, but he wanted to double check. He then proceeded to shove the tool back in the duct, pulled his hands away and said "look, the whole thing is in there, it's gotta be gone." That was traumatizing alone to see this tool sticking out of my mouth while his hands are nowhere near it. At that point, I just wanted to get out. I was friendly, my mouth was in pain and I knew the stone was still there. I ended up getting another appointment with an entirely different practice two days later, and that doctor removed the stone in less than 3 minutes, with no pain at all. So, I will never be returning to Dr. Lebovics.

I went in for a second visit to talk about a breathing problem the doctor had diagnosed me with previously, and despite my protest he insisted on sticking a tube up my nose to look around, which I'm now stuck footing the bill for. I'm very upset that this was not discussed beforehand and I would've saved myself the trouble. This sort of inefficiency is everything that's wrong with the healthcare industry.

This doctor was very thorough. He listened to what I had to say; he didn't rush me out and he was able to order me a CT scan the same day, within minutes of his office and give me the results right after the exam. He went out of his way to accommodate my needs

While Dr. Lebovics seemed knowledgeable his bedside manner was seriously lacking. Coming in for a consultation, with minimal explanation he proceeded to spray anesthetic up my nose, neglecting to mention any expectations or effects. Promptly leaving the room afterwards he left me alone, where I became light headed and nearly fainted. After calls for help, I had to stand up and find a nurse who reacted slowly while the doctor came in and said little old ladies are usually fine with this, it's the young guys who usually have problems. Only after numbing my entire nose, throat, mouth, and sinuses (for the purpose of a 30 second procedure) did he tell me this was going to last 3 hours. Terrible doctor, stay away. Dr. Lebovics is combative and argumentative; should be avoided at all costs.

Doctor Lebovics is good but tends to cancel appointments last minute often which has been frustrating. He also has the unfriendliest staff. Every time I come to my appointments I never feel welcomed and the woman at reception usually has an attitude for no reason. If I wasn't so far along the process for my treatment I would definitely switch doctors because I've been so turned off by the staff there.

He's very detailed and listens to everything you have to say. He finds it very important to know where your problem started and how to fix it. I like that, almost like detective work. I feel like a lot of doctors don't do that but he actually listens.

He was funny, kind, and quick to see me. He was more importantly willing to say he didn't know the cause of my ailment rather than making assumptions. Everyone in the office was equally kind and professional, making a potentially stressful experience a proactive and informative one.

A bit of a wait and confusion among the staff but the Dr. came in and acknowledged it and apologized. I believe I read a previous review stating he didn't close the door initially when he walked in. I experienced that as well, but I asked to close it and he of course had no objections. That was a first though. Very friendly, professional consultation and I felt good about the visit. I have a 2nd appointment for follow-up, so far so good.

Was horrible, extremely awkward and gave me anesthetic with out even asking, then continued to shove two tubes up my nose with no warning. I had a full on panic attack and while light headed was rushed out of the office. I have NEVER had a worse experience at a doctor's office before. I left in tears.
