Dr.Lifchitz is Excellent

Dr. Lifschitz takes excellent care of me by paying extreme attention to detail. He checks my condition every three months and I feel I wouldn't want to be checked any less often. He has practiced many years and brings to his patients an extreme depth of knowledge within his specialty of endocrinology. He uses old school techniques such as personally drawing blood himself and hand written notes. If you want a doctor to be tapping away on their iPads then perhaps you should seek another doctor. I give my personal well being to sit in the hands of Dr. Lifschitz.

Look elsewhere

The ill will felt toward Dr. Mervyn Lifschitz and his staff did not grow from one unfortunate incidence which may have been excusable, but rather from numerous inexcusable incidences, taking place during the care of my sister which ultimately resulted in death. The doctor and his staff's disregard for my sister's condition, their unprofessionalism, lackadaisical attitude and lack of compassion have left our family devastated and certainly in need of cautioning others who are contemplating using this doctor's services. My sister's health was deteriorating and Dr. Lifschitz could offer no diagnosis, yet was often condescending to our family, and rather flippant and impatient at times, telling her daughter that her mother should just "toughen up. ". The medical staff's wait and see attitude and concern for the almighty dollar, in spite of adequate medical coverage, defined their mode of operation. The front office staff was just as insensitive, refusing to reschedule appointments, displaying rude and unacceptable behavior inspite of the gravity of the situation. My sister slipped away within a month after being told by Dr. Lifschitz to "toughen up." During the course of her treatment, another medical team was eventually obtained, but it is reprehensible that any patient and family should have to undergo this type of treatment during any part of their medical care. If anyone values integrity, compassion, ongoing concern and responsibility from their treating source, it would be wise to look elsewhere.

Dr Lifschitz is old school medicine. Solid as a rock, good as gold. This practice is nothing fancy but he calls personally with test results. He knows his stuff and he cares.
