Dr. Leff saved my life...twice between 2010 and 2012.. He also left me with functioning kidneys when others were recommending more precipitate action that could have rendered them useless.

Never have I felt so comfortable speaking with a surgeon. He listened and performed services as promised. He's great with "at risk" patients like myself. If you need surgery, he's the guy to have do it.
