Patient Comments (6)
Dr. Carolyn Lederman came highly recommended by our eye doctor and pediatrician. Seeing how I've been a person whose worn glasses my whole life and seeing multiple doctors I've finally found the best Opthamology group around for the care of my child, simply the best! The combination of father and daughter in their practice makes you feel like you're family! Dr. Carolyn Lederman is great with kids, compassionate, always happy to go over any questions we have and our daughter absolutely loves her!

My former preemie has been seeing Dr Lederman for years. We have always had good experience, the team is organized, doctor has patience with my son (he himself loves going there). Taking little ones to specialist like this requires a teamwork between Doctor and parents as well, and I feel that the doctor always works with me to meet my son's needs. Dr Lederman came highly recommended to me for my son who has ROP and we have been very happy.

Intelligent , helpful doctor with a bad attitude towards parents

Dr Lederman is an excellent ophthalmologist for children of all ages, into teenage years. She was able to diagnose an easily treatable condition which other doctors could not find the cause of. My high school aged daughter has been seeing her since she was very young and I recently referred a friend who has a toddler and had the same positive experience we have had. Dr Lederman is caring, thorough, a great communicator and I trust her.
Dr. Lederman was is an intelligent, caring, and patient Doctor. She was able to diagnose what was wrong with our newborn baby and quickly scheduled her for surgery to correct the situation. She did a fabulous job caring for our daughter and taking the time to speak with us. We highly recommend her. We are grateful for all she did for our 2 week old daughter.

We had a wonderful experience with Dr.Lederman. We brought our 2 week old infant to see her because we were concerned about her eye. She was able to diagnose a rare condition right away. She performed surgery on her and did an amazing job. She was patient and caring and even called to see how our daughter was doing afterwards. She did a great job explaining everything to us. Dr.Lederman is very smart and we highly recommend her.
