What Our Patients Are Saying

Talking about Lea Lowenfeld, M.D.

"I have been a patient of Dr Lowenfelds for over a year now. From the very beginning the attention and compassion in caring for me are excellent. Colorectal issues can be intimidating and sensitive and Dr Lowenfeld and her team have been open and supportive with everything."

"Dr Yeo made an otherwise embarrassing exam as respectful and caring as possible, and I felt total confidence in her medical acumen. I left feeling grateful that such devoted physicians like Dr Yeo still exist in today’s hurried medical world."

"Dr. Hunt is a kind, caring and knowledgeable doctor with a very positive aura. I had an initial consultation with him and he recommended me to get a surgery. I was also able to get all my questions answered over phone and email with this staff Heidi and Patricia who are also very well mannered and caring. My surgery with Dr Hunt went by smoothly and I did not have any pain that I thought I would’ve had! He answered all my follow-up questions or concerns and his team was able to help me whenever I needed them! Excellent doctor. He deserves more than 5 stars!"
