The horrible reality of a brain tumor sent me into stealth mode of learning about meningiomas and researching who would be the best person to give me a chance of surviving and as just as importantly, as my normal self. After 5 interviews with top guys in the field, I found The extraordinary Dr Bederson and PA Leslie Schlachter. These two wonderful people made me feel at ease and in in the right hands, from day one. I felt as if I was their only patient and they were my relatives! LESLIE is so knowledgeable and patient and will answer every question you have and hold your hand the entire way. The kind Dr Bederson is the only highly skilled and competent surgeon you will want digging in your head. He has done over 4000 of these operations, experience speaks. My entire experience was as easy and painless as it could be. I was home 2 days later and functioning very well. I am forever grateful to them and fortunate to have had the care of his entire team.

Dr. Bederson is top class. He was able to remove the entire meningioma tumor from my skull and sinuses. As a result, my sense of taste and smell have been restored, and my vision is 20/20 with glasses. His staff, Leslie, Adrianne, Gena, and Rima are extremely helpful, hardworking, and courteous. They have always responded to my requests for assistance promptly, and they really take care of the patients. Happy New Year!

I am so very thankful that I found this doctor and his team. They were amazing from day 1. My surgery lasted about 7 hours and it could not have gone better. I was in the hospital for 3 nights and Dr. Bederson and his team were very attentive while I was in the hospital and after I was released. People were amazed at how well I was doing just a few short weeks after surgery.

There are no words to express our gratitude. The best doctor with the best staff that can be. My Mom had an incidental discovery of a meningioma right next to the optic nerve. We met with Dr. Bederson and his assistant Dr. Schlachter and, cannot find enough words to praise their help, professionalism and, dedication from the first visit, to the monitoring, to the surgery until the post-operative follow ups. They are God-sent and a blessing to this society.

I have been a patient of Dr. Bederson's for 10 years. He has performed three surgeries on me for a craniopharygioma brain tumor with a successful outcome each time. Dr. Bederson is very compassionate, a good listener honest and will tell you what needs to be done in a way that is understandable. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Bderson as my surgeon. I travel from Washington, DC to New York to see him. HIs PA, Leslie is very good. She is very knowledeable and compassionate.

Dr. Bederson and his team are amazing! I was home the day after my meningioma surgery and returned to work in less than a month. Leslie Schlachter, Dr. Bederson's PA, was with me and my family every possible step on the way, always ready to help and taking care of everything. I can't imagine being in better hands during such a complex procedure, where the super-professionalism, unimaginably advanced technology, and highly personal and caring attitude - all came together.

I went to Dr. Bederson, who was recommended by my neurologist, even though he is out of network of my insurance because he was highly recommended. I spoke to a few people about if I should find an in network surgeon and they suggested that I should not skimp on quality to save some money. In the long run it would be better to get my surgery done right. So far so good.

As soon as I met Dr. Bederson and his PA Leslie, I knew I had made the right decision for my meningioma surgery. They calmed my nerves and explained everything that would happen. Dr. Bederson is easy to talk to and has a great bedside manner. Leslie is always available by phone or email—I wouldn't have gotten through this without her. I can’t say enough about these two & their team. They made one of the hardest experiences of my life a lot easier. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give them a 20!

1 month post-surgery, I am not experiencing any of my prior symptoms. I have returned to normal activities. I had been advised that the recovery could be quite painful. Whereas my experience may not be what everyone should expect, for me the pain was minimal to none. The entire staff, from Dr. Bederson’s office to the surgical team to the recovery and floor nurses and aides, were incredibly professional and caring. Their collective attention to my care made this experience considerably easier.

He conducted my father's surgery after his stroke and while I have only spoken to him on the phone, he was very good at calming my nerves about the process, which is a true gift.

I am so grateful to Dr. Joshua Bederson and Leslie Schlachter (Clinical Director and Senior Physician Assistant) for saving my life. The care I received from them and their whole team at Mt.

Dr. Bederson and Leslie Schlachter, part of the neurosurgery team are incomparable. Dr. Bederson successfully removed a brain tumor from the rear of my skull this past November. Dr. B. Is a top notch surgeon with amazing skills and tremendous compassion. He is surrounded by a support staff that treats you like an important family member. The level of care I received at Mt Sinai was absolutely incredible. I would gladly recommend Dr. Bederson to any individual contemplating neurosurgery.

Dr. Bederson and Leslie were amazing. I am now 1 month out of surgery and feeling great. After first meeting Dr. Bederson, he was confident he could help me with my headaches but didn't want to rush into surgery until I had exhausted the conservative route. After I tried 4 different medications with no success, I went back to Dr. Bederson and scheduled surgery. Throughout the entire process, Leslie was always available for questions and very quick to respond. She made me feel comfortable.
