“I was extremely satisfied with everything at the office. Everyone especially Dr Lefkowitz, Donna and Hillary were very nice, friendly and I was not at all stressed or nervous about my procedure!”

“I was so impressed with everyone with whom I had contact with at the West Islip facility. From Chris Byrne who performed the initial biopy to Dr. Lefkowitz who performed his Mohs surgery as he expertly removed 100% of the basal cell carcinoma from the bridge of my nose and left almost no trace of my having such a procedure. My follow-up for a whole body skin scan with Dr. Applebaum was also professionally conducted. I am thoroughly satisfied that I chose the right practice to address my dermatological needs. PS. Thanks and hello to the front office staff and General manager and of course my appreciation to the lab pathologist who prepared the biopsy samples. Happy Holidays to all.”
