Dr. Liebmann is a terrific doctor, but his office is the most poorly-run operation of any medical office that I have ever experienced. When you try to make an appointment, you are put on hold indefinitely. There is no online portal to make an appointment. When you have an appointment time, you are made to wait for an hour after that time. Clearly he and his staff have no idea how to run a practice efficiently and in a manner that respects the patient's time.

Dr Liebman has been treating me for glaucoma and is doing An excellent job in stabilizing my vision. In my view, he is the best ophthalmologist in the NY metropolitan area. He is a brilliant doctor and an expert surgeon. He takes excellent care of his patients. He is also down to earth and completely responsive to any questions. I give him the highest possible recommendation and very glad I am his patient.

I am sorry I ever went to see Dr. Liebmann. Terrible bedside manner. Performed eye surgery that didn’t work and made the condition worse. Wish I had read reviews before I became a patient.

He runs his office like an assembly line; one of which operated in the 1920’s. It’s not about the patient, it’s about how many can be shepherded through in any given day. His bedside manners don’t exist. His arrogance is beyond rapprochement and it only gets worse when he is admonished by one of his peers. He takes no responsibility for his mistakes and will defend himself in any way he sees fit. I lost my eyesight in my good eye due to his negligence and ten months later I am still having surgeries to remediate his mistakes. Thank goodness for the doctors at Lennox Hill

Vincent D’Onofrio in HARRISON, NY – Aug 20, 2019
Dr. Liebmann, is a highly knowledgeable, authoritative, trustworthy and compassionate doctor. After a recent "glaucoma suspect" scare initiated by my two previous doctors, Dr. Liebmann oversaw a comprehensive suite of glaucoma tests for me, which lasted for more than two hours. The tests cleared me of glaucoma suspicion (to my great relief). Given Dr. Liebmann's extensive expertise in glaucoma, and given the severity of the disease, he was the obvious choice for me. I can't recommend him enough!

Erik in New York, NY – Jan 24, 2019
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.

Raquel M in Bronx, NY – Jul 18, 2016
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.
