I just visited Dr. Lifschitz's office for the first time and the two ladies working there were so nice I didn't want to leave. They were both so sweet I thought I was back in the South. I look forward to visiting their office again.

I'm sorry to hear BBean had such a bad experience. Regretably, you need to make it past his receptionists' attitudes to see Dr. L. He was able to manage my thyroid when no one else could. He is a good man and has always taken his time to

Dr. Lifschitz is experienced, listens to the patient and comes up with helpful diagnosis. However, his organization could be questionable. at the end of the visit he tells you to schedule another follow up appointment within 2-3 months and in fact he he forgets what he's told you and gives you less than 2 months supply of medication refills to use. So you run out of meds before you visit him and therefore have to call the office and pharmacy multiple times to sort out the reason for needing more pills without any refills remaining! Quite an ordeal and waste of time. And when you gently call him and ask him to call in more he'll say sure, but then he forgets the reminder again! It seems to me that he's just very confused and getting pretty old to remember details of running a medical business. His staff are also very unusual. They down talk you on the phone when you need to make an appointment and speak in a very rude tone without complete sentences. The office seems very disorganized altogether and you have to be very patient with lots of free time in hand to follow up with him as they may not refill your prescription for you for days while you're you of your meds.

Dr Lifschitz is a very nice guy. I do agree however that there i great room for improvement with regard to the courtesy of his staff. And in terms of finding a new endo, I need more than just a nice guy.

When I inquired about the weight I have put on since my thryroid problem began (and subsequent thyroid removal) his advice for me was to eat 400 calories a day - claiming that is the only way the weight would come off. Sadly, he actually has a patient following that advice (so he stated) but it seemed not only UNSAFE advice coming from a licensed medical practitioner ...but rather insane.

And yes, he is an old fashioned doctor, top to bottom. They do not take credit cards there; first time ever at an endo's office that I was required to wear a hospital gown (?), etc. The only patients I saw coming in and out were over 60 so that might be a statement of something as well.

So I am still looking. He may be the perfect doctor for YOU (whomever you are, out there) but the red light went on for me at the "medical advice" offered with regard to a dangerous calorie reduction.

Pros: Very nice guy; they validate parking

Cons: old world; rude staff; questionable medical advice

Overall, my son's experience with Dr Lifschitz was positive -- at least during the office visits. He takes his time, asks a lot of questions, and seems to be quite thorough. However...if you want to follow up with him on any topics after you leave the office, you must be a very patient patient! He's not very up-to-date technologically (e.g., no Fax capability, so you can't have previous records or prescription info Faxed, and no email/Web site options). He will call personally with lab results, etc, but you have to be available in the very narrow time window when he makes his calls, which can lead to extended phone tag. On several occasions, I found his staff to be quite rude over the phone. They seem to be irritated that you are calling, they don't volunteer their name, and in one case, I was interrupted 3 times, then hung up on. I eventually changed doctors due to the inconvenience and unfriendly staff.

Pros: He's attentive...once you get into the exam room.

Cons: Very low-tech (no Fax) and rude staff
