I had been going to Dr Liebmann for many years for my glaucoma. He has operated on me five times. He is very caring and and explains what is going on with me. The only negative I have to say is that sometime the waiting period in his office can be long. I have moved up to Connecticut and Dr Liebmann recommended a doctor near me who I am now satisfied with.
in Bronx, NY |
Very soft spoken, caring and approachable doctor
ny, ny |
Based on credentials he seems to be a good one but overshadowed by the long wait (longest I have experience at a doctor's office, between 21/2-3 hrs.!), very minimal doctor-patient interaction and below average, non-caring medical staff.
