“Dr. Lowenstein’s bedside manner is like none I’ve ever seen. He also takes his time with children and knows how to deal with emotional parents.” ~Victor, Rockaway
“Dr. Jason is very passionate about his patients, he went above and beyond when he performed my daughter’s surgery on his daughter’s birthday. It was an extensive surgery that required us to be at the hospital early in the morning until late in the evening. Dr. Jason spent that day tending to my child. If that’s not exceptional, then I don’t know what is. He’s still very caring, even months later after surgery. He checks on my daughter constantly. She loves him and his staff dearly. My entire family appreciates Dr. Jason so much.” ~Monique, East Orange
“Dr. Lowenstein showed so much patience and understanding with my daughter during the time when she was having surgery. For scoliosis, he prepared her for what was going to happen, what she’d be able to do and what she wouldn’t be able to do. She’s thriving now from the passion and understanding that he gave her.” ~Cheryl, Rockaway
“Dr. Jason Lowenstein took the time to talk about bracing; most doctors just wanted to operate.” ~Palant, Rockaway
