Patient Comments (3)

I will be sure never to call Dr. Leifer next time i need help. I found him to be a terrible listener, uncaring, insensitive and stubborn. Did not meet my expectations as a physician.

I love Dr. Leifer and have been going to him for years. I agree with others regarding the office staff. They are uncaring, rude and very unprofessional.
