Dr. Lebhar has been my cardiologist for 8 years. He takes his time to review your case and understand your medical issues. Very easy to talk to and you feel comfortable asking him any questions. Dr. Lebhar's recommendations are always balanced with a cost benefit analysis in order for the patient to make an informed decision. Overall a great doctor!

I am a retired law enforcement officer of the Naples, FL area. I have been a patient of Dr. Lebhar's for a good number of years. He was originally recommended to me by a very respected and highly reputable doctor in the same area. Dr. Lebhar is one in a million! Very personable, caring and obviously very knowledgeable about his profession. He is straight forward and honest. I have seldom been able to get into a doctors office in this area as quickly as I've had at his office when in need. I have even received phone calls from him directly when I've had testing done that he wanted to go over with me instead of waiting for a next appointment. Because lets face it, this is the ol' ticker, time is crucial. His assistant/nurse/aid is amazing herself. She manages the office and patients with high efficiency and is just as caring and concerned for those who step foot across the threshold of that office. I would highly recommend this office to anyone who needs a cardiologist.

My mother went to the ER on Christmas night, she was having trouble breathing. She called Dr Lebhar's office and Barbara fit her in ASAP. He reassured us and they made an immediate appointment to see a heart surgeon the following week for a heart catheter. Thank you for your caring speedy plan!

I am a 46-year-old school teacher here in Naples. Transplant from New York where I was born and raised and finished my studies then graduate school. I was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation when I was 18 years old and have seen many different cardiologists, and cardiac electrophysiologists throughout New York, Florida and California. None of them even come close to the amazing care, expertise, consideration, professionalism, and personality of Dr. Steve Lebhar. I have been treated by Dr. Lebhar since 2008 for intermittent bouts of Atrial Fibrillation. I have had two ablations in the past by a different cardiologist and have seen Dr. Lebhar ever since. Dr. Lebhar does what no other cardiologist does and in my humble opinion, does what no other Dr. does (period) - He actually cares!!!It is written all over his face and exhibited in not only his words but also his actions.Thank you Dr. Lebhar, Barbara and your team for the continued amazing care and support - Jonah Nicosia

Exceptional Experience With Dr. Lebhar. On March 8th of 2019 , 2 days before I was scheduled to have knee surgery, I was able to get an appointment the next day as a new patient and Dr. Lebhar performed an array of test to clear me for the upcoming knee Surgery. He went above and beyond. Courteous and Professional .

I couldn’t be more pleased after having seen Dr Lebhar this week for the first time. When I called his office and explained the problem to Barbara, she was very professional and helpful. Then I was seen promptly by Dr. Lebhar who listened to my description of symptoms, examined me and formulated a plan to further evaluate the problem. That evaluation was completed rapidly and efficiently, and Dr Lebhar took the time necessary to listen and explain. He is a skilled and caring cardiologist.

Dr. Lebhar referred me to an ablation specialist by contacting him first. After 3 procedures I'm as good as new, if not for Dr. Lebhar, I most likely wouldn't be alive and writing this.

Twelve years ago, Dr. Lebhar literally saved my life while I was in the hospital by doggedly seeking the answer to my heart problem when others had not be able to find it. He continues to give me very personal (never a PA or assistant) and top notch care. Office is exceptionally well run, also. I highly recommend him.

Dr Steve Lebhar is my answer to an ideal physician. I am a retired dentist so I have some knowledge of medicine and what it takes to be really good at the practice of cardiology. I have had numerous cardiac procedures all under Steve's care. I am now 76 and still actively playing tennis as well as enjoying an enormously fruitful life. Steve is the man who keeps me alive and healthy. It is a pleasure going to a 1 man practice and being a person with a name rather than just a number

My doctor did not think I needed to see a cardiologist. I disagreed. A friend recommended Dr Lebhar, and after testing, listening, and spelling out his recommendation; I had an angiogram and procedure to remove blockage. Thank you! Feeling great and losing weight. A straight forward frank professional healthcare provider. I have recommended Dr Lebhar to friends. Do not hesitate to call if you are concerned with your heart health.

Dr.Steve Lebhar has been our cardiologist since 2004. His approach to health care for my husband and myself has always been upfront, compassionate and honest. When he says “your too fat” he is not insulting, on the contrary, he is telling us the truth. He is a Doctor that cares about the health of his patients and telling them the truth, is a way of compassion, and honesty, which we have always appreciated. We would be honored to recommend a “Real Doctor” Thanks, Follese’s

Dr. Lebhar thoroughly explained my heart condition in a manner that I understood so I was aware of what was happening. His assistant, Barbara, is a great asset. The office is run very efficiently. I'm certain he has many patients but when you're being seen you have the feeling they both care about your well being.
