**PLEASE READ** AVOID THIS "DOCTOR"** I made an appointment since he had so many positive reviews and it says he was named "best doctors of NY" (which after my experience I really wonder how he got that plaque) regardless I went to him after experiencing months with a terrible cough. At first i thought it was allergies. However, it got progressively worse pretty quickly where I would gasp for air at night. I explained to him everything that was going on and what i did to help with the symptoms. It seemed like it went through one ear and out the other. He did a breathing test, a EKG and blood work ( I never got the results from the blood work) At the end of my appointment with him, I went into his office and he said according to my breathing examination it shows I have asthma. I said well that's odd I am 38 years old and Ive never had asthma in my life nor does it run in my family. He said it happens, trust me its asthma. I said but I have been using the pump which they gave me. Initial

I was looking for a good pulmonologist for my wife. In our first visit on 9/18/19, I realized we found Dr. Leeman is the perfect one. I found Dr. Leeman to be thorough, professional, very knowledgeable, welcoming, and takes his time to make sure you easily understand your medical needs. Overall he is very kind and friendly. The receptionist and the medical assistant both are very friendly, professional and well behaved. My best recommendation for Dr. Benjamin Leeman and his staffs.
