A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.

Dr. is a caring, compassionate physician, who absolutely does not want you to suffer. I have been in tears for the last two days, because he has decided to close his PM practice. Since I have a longstanding injury , I have come across too many practioners who do not belong in this field. There will be many of his patients who will now struggle trying to find someone who will provide the same excellent care he has given for so many years. I miss him already.
I've gone to Dr Lefkovitz for many years. The wait times have been as long as 3 hours or more. The Dr. used to listen and respond to my questions and concerns, but the past few years, he seems very distracted, doesn't listen to me, it seems he wants to rush you in and out with a prescription. If you have questions about a medicine or need to change one for some reason, it seems to derail him. It's a shame, he's got a nice staff and a good nature, but he's no longer the same Dr. he was 5 or more years ago.
On my first appointment the doctor came in and actually sat down and listened to me. He was very polite and so was his staff. He made sure all of my questions were answered. I would recommend Dr. Lefkovitz to anyone!
