I really loved Dr. Leber and was his patient for over a year. Unfortunately because of my over honesty and his dishonesty I was abruptly banned from SIMED for trying marijuana for pain. He would not tell me in person but abruptly cancelled me by mail the day before my appointment and it was the beginning of years of pain and nightmares of extortion from other incompetent doctors that were not as "nice" as he was and I never could get back my old inexpensive pain meds that actually work because of the darned opiod crisis! My health four years later is much diminished as has my happiness because all the things I loved to do has diminished as the loves of my life in frustration divorced me and my daughter has nothing to do with me because I am disabled.

Dr Leber is one of the best doctors I've ever seen! He listens with genuine concern and works to make his patients as comfortable as possible. He gives each appointment the time needed and never seems to be in a hurry to leave before the patient's concerns are addressed. I've been seeing him for over a decade and would never want to leave his practice.

Very direct and straightforward, Dr. Leber allowed me to speak freely, without interrupting, and then responded to my concerns. We have worked together to reach a medication level that works for me. He often has suggestions of how to deal with the curves that life throws at me.

Due to my mother's Insurance he refused to assist her! After the fact she complied with everything. Made Rude Comments..Unprofessional..Unpredictable.Unreliable..Pretense of making Unprofessional Comments about his Colleagues! That goes against the Hip.Oath as being a Doctor.

Dr. Leber is one of the most caring person that I have ever met. He made me feel like I was a human being. He's warm, courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. Maybe he could chair a etiquette class that would benefit other doctor's, that doesn't display his qualities. He also listen. Scheduling was fast and staff were very friendly, and courteous. I usually have a 15-30 minute wait before I am escorted to a exam. room, and usual the same for exam room. There is never a rush exam. time. GREAT!
