About Lea Lowenfeld, M.D.
Diseases of the colon and rectum can be serious, life-altering, and embarrassing to discuss. My goal is to create a relationship with each of my patients in which they feel comfortable discussing these sensitive subjects, help them better understand the nature of the disease and their treatment options, and ultimately provide them with the best individualized care to improve their quality of life.
