    I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Leader and his staff. He is kind, gentle. does all the necessary test and spends quality time with each patient. You just don't find many doctors like Dr. Leader any more.

    I've been severely nearsighted (-16) my entire life, and have seen ophthalmologists in NY, MA, and FL. In my experience, Dr Leader is by far the best ophthalmologist. What makes him so exceptional is that he cares. In addition to having decades of experience in his field, he takes the extra steps to treat his patients with respect and kindness. I had two eye surgeries with Dr. Leader, and he and the entire team made me feel safe and in very competent hands. He has changed my life.
