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.

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 footingthe 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.
