STAY AWAY FROM HIM! DO NOT GO TO DR LEBOVICS! He would cut me off when I tried to answer his questions about my symptoms, mocked the medication I was taking, and when he recognized that I was uncomfortable told me"I'm not a lawyer. These are easy questions. Just yes or no," and then wouldn't let me answer. He didn't let me ask questions either, and eventually told me he thought someone else would do a better job and had me make an appointment to do the same thing but with another doctor. Mt. Sinai is a good place but this doctor is an OUTRAGEOUS FAILURE OF A PROFESSIONAL. I mentioned it to their manager and was told this man is routinely complained about.

I came to Dr. Lebovics because I was having unusual headaches and blurry vision, and was really worried. I found him completely grating and rude. Though he is an ENT, he thought it was appropriate to comment rudely on my weight,Then, after all my tests, he gave me his recommendations for next steps--while constantly saying that he was "taking me at my word" about my symptoms and that he's "never sure whether he can believe a patient's story." It's clear that he has no respect for his patients, and seemed eager to find some flaw in my "story" so he could dismiss me. I would not recommend him to anyone.

Efficient and high-end office staff. Didn't have to wait long at all to be seen by the doctor. Dr. Lebovics was thorough, pleasant, and a gentleman. Dr. Lebovics accurately diagnosed and fixed my problem where two other previous high-end doctorscould not help me. I recommend Dr. Lebovics with enthusiasm.
