Patient Comments (3)
in New YorkCity |
Dr. Leib was my Aunt's ophthamologist; now,he's mine. I have been delighted with the depth of his professional knowledge,attention to me and to my description of my problems, patience, and kindness.I have never been rushed,or felt as if I were allotted a specific twenty minutes in the schedule.There is quite a wait to see him,but the wait is well worth it.
in Bronx, NY |
Dr Leib diagnosis of glaucoma was misleading and a second doctor said it was incorrectly diagnosed. He was interested to treat eyes with laser surgery, and to put the laser at good use. When I requested to have eye drops, which was one of the solutions dr Leib proposed for my eyes, he did not want to give them to me.

He maintains a pleasant, even humorous atmosphere. But, when something is really wrong, he gets down to business - fast. An excellent doctor. Do be prepared to wait!
