My husband had two procedures same day with Dr Leibach. We were very impressed with him and his staff. Everyone was very nice and professional. Got us in and out much faster than anywhere we had been in the past. It was clean and private. My husband said they made him feel very comfortable. Which says a lot for such an uncomfortable situation. We highly appreciate you all and will recommend you in the future.

The first time I had an appointment with Dr. Leibach, as a referral, I had to wait 4x the length of the appointment. After dictating to me for all of the better half of ten minutes, Dr. Leibach dismissed the initial opinion of the referring physician; contrary to positive test results. All while insulting the referring physician for being a P.A. He never offered me a treatment plan, accused me of not believing him, and referred me out to The Mayo Clinic. Weeks later, I've yet to retain help.

Dr, Leibach is the best!!!

He listened carefully, did appropriate testing, and found the problem.

I love Dr. Liebach. He has a great personality and never seems rushed when I need to see him. He's also very good at what he does. I would recommend him to anyone with GI issues.
Gainesville Florida |
Dr Leibach completely invalidated me and was dismissive of my complaints. He glossed over my urgent physical episodes telling me that my diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome and fibromyalgia were "psychiatric" conditions presenting primarily to women causing symptoms that are always "much worse". Then he said I needed "to see a psychiatrist" for depression and anxiety. He also intimated I had "Dr. shopped." (My primary referred me). Dr Leibach is an arrogant, uncompassionate physician.
