I've been seeing Dr. Lief for about 2 years, and he's given me my libido back, my energy back, and most of all, my confidence back. He took the time to listen to me, was very understanding & empathetic, and made me feel extremely comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone who is hesitant to see a Dr. about their issues. Thanks Dr. Lief.

in Ennis, MT |
I was referred to Dr Lief by Dr Sperling. I was very pleased with his thoroughness and his care and concern for my condition. Surgery went very well. He took plenty of time to answer my questions and explain the procedure. I would recommend him to any one including family and friends.

in Delray Beach,Fl |
With all the doctors I have seen, never has one actually called to check on me after any procedure, except for Dr. Leif?s office. I too went to see Dr. Leif for a second opinion, and was welcomed by his staff and with Dr. Leif?s knowledge. A different option was given to me and it was very successful. He made me feel comfortable and with his knowledge and expertise I would recommend him to anybody looking for a Urologist. One of the best doctors I have recognized being in South Florida.
in Coral Springs, FL |
I'm feeling good with him and his staff
in Deerfield Beach, FL |
Best urological Doctor I have experienced. My problems started at 11 years of age when my left kidney was removed and have had all sorts of bladder & urinary problems throughout life & had experiences with many, many Doctors, hospitals, and specialists covering 70 years. Doctor Lief is the best by far.
in Margate, FL |
On the first visit as I was waiting to see the doctor, all I heard was a man screaming at his office staff. On the second visit after going for text, I was told that I need surgergy which was schudeled for the following week. Unfortunately, Dr. Lief does not go to a free standing outpatient surgery center so it would have cost $2700 out of pocket. I called offce and said I could not aford that. I have not heard a word back. Am I going to lose my kidney Are there other options?
