I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Lebowitz for all he has done for me. I came to Dr. Lebowitz in February 2005 a frightened and uninformed patient inquiring about Lasik Surgery. Although the hour was late, Dr. Lebowitz patiently took the time to explain (in language I could understand) the procedure and its possible side effects. Six years ago I witnessed my sister's Lasik procedure and even after having seen with my own eyes what I would endure, I still postponed having the procedure myself. It wasn't until I met with Dr. Lebowitz and his associate Dr. Podhorzer that my fears were put to rest. Dr. Lebowitz exemplified patience and professionalism like none other I have experienced. Once I made the decision to go ahead with Lasik surgery, scheduling the procedure was made convenient and quick by Lindsay, director of your Brooklyn office. The procedure itself was made less frightening by Dr. Lebowitz who continually explained what was to happen next and asked if I was OK. The post-operative care was just as important to Dr. Lebowitz as was the procedure itself. Dr. Lebowitz made sure I was aware that he personally was available to me and my needs, questions, or concerns at any time, day or night. It?s this type of bedside manner that truly makes Dr. Lebowitz stand apart from the rest. At my first post-operative appointment, which was the day following my procedure, my vision was the same as if I were wearing my contacts. These results were truly amazing to me!! With each post-operative visit my eyes seem to be improving beyond my wildest expectations!! Thank you again Dr. Lebowitz for making a seeming terrifying experience successful and pleasant.View More
