Dr. Milsom listens carefully to the patient describing their issue(s). He explains things very well. When something is not an issue to be worried about he allays the patients fears. He is a wonderful doctor.

Talking about Lea Lowenfeld, M.D.

I saw Dr Lowenfeld for a consultation. She clearly had prepped for my visit as she was well versed in my medical history. We had an open discussion of the pros and cons of various treatment options and I came away from the consult having a much better understanding of my treatment options and the potential risks and benefits of those options. She clearly is an expert in her field but she also was empathetic and patient in addressing my questions and was very respectful which put me at ease almost immediately. I highly recommend Dr Lowenfeld.
