What People Say About Dr. Boris Leybel, MD

I have been seeing Dr Leybel and occasionally Dr Briskin for severe Lumbar issues that had been plagueing me for months. As of my last appointment I finally received some relief, as a result of my third epidural. I was ecstatic. I have always paid my co-pay and any other monies due. I just received a call from his receptionist stating that as of today, they do not take my insurance anymore and they were cancelling my July 8th follow up appointment. It was a cold, "Too bad for you" phone call and there is nothing they can do. I would think that Dr. Leybel would have taken the time himself to see how I was doing and explain what was happening. I am extremely disappointed in this man who I thought truly had his patients best interests at heart. I suppose it WAS just about the money.

Giving 2 stars since Dr.Leybel and Dr.Briskin are really good. This is in case you eventually see them. However, the pain you will incur before that lucky moment (and after that), dealing with their office stuff and the time waiting in line may become an insurmountable challenge for many. And even if you did it once you may not want to go thru it again (even if doctor helps you!!). All other comments about rudeness and extra payments are true. Ridiculous they can not hire a normal stuff!

I went to my appointment and was told by the staff that I have to Pay upfront $150 for the visit because I have a high deductible that has not been met. Upon receiving EOB they will reimburse me if I overpaid. I thought I went to the doctor, not the retail business. What about ethic and purpose of being doctors. I see other doctors wih my insurance and never had such experience before. I left office without my shots and any help because I did not had any money with me that day!

Made an appointment w him to see him for first time after checking if they take my insurance. After waiting for 15 minutes in the room I was advised by the staff that they have to charge me $450 in advance for the visit because my insurance has a high deductible that has not been met. I left the office without being seen by this unethical doctor who I wasted my time with.
