in Merritt Island, FL |
Dr. Leifer was awesome. He was committed to spending at least 45 minutes with me on the first visit. He is thorough and practical in treatment. I think he is an excellent physician.
in Cocoa, FL |
I have been a patient of Dr. Leifer since 1979. He has guided me medically thru some difficult times with asthma. He is intelligent, knowledgeable, caring and the best doctor that I have ever had. Love this doctor! The office hours have shortened over the years, can't blame him for wanting time off, so keep that in mind. Office staff are courteous and caring.
