What People Say About Dr. Rhoda Leichter, MD
Reply
The GOOD: Office staff is nice The BAD: Doctor has no bedside manners and no regards for anyone else’s time. Dr. Leichter missed many of the smaller veins, I came back for additional treatment. After waiting 55 minutes with an early morning I walked out.
