      I truly believe the only people that post negative on reviews have No life and hate there life! I have been a patient for 5+ years. Dr. Leichter is a brilliant doctor. I love the staff; they are professional and very sweet. My husband and three of my friends see Dr. Leichter that's why I see him I wanted my DM to be just as controlled as my friends are and my A1C has been 5.8 for 5 years and I feel great!

      No prognosis. Very one sided visit . Staff appeared stressed out and irritable

      His staff informed me he schedules and see 40 - 60 patients a day, In the year I saw him, he did nothing but add metformin to my insulin pump and CGM, Kept referig to his famous weight loss protocol, which was an appt with a nurse educator, as a 52 yo man living with sudden onset (age 44) type 1.5 or as he called it type 3, (said I had both). Never wanted to listen to me to rushed to see others. With all of the new treatments coming out every year, I would think there were more options A1C 7

      I am the parent of Mykel Juree Collins. On 22 Dec 2015 @ 1000 hrs our experience was a total failure. Your hired help was very rude and unprofessional. Instead of leaving satisfied with a solution in ref to our A1C (14), we left confused with a one sided conversation, communicated poorly. A US Veteran of 21 yrs, I request to speak directly to you, the Physician as Tricare referred. Thank God for therapy for my PTSD. I am truly upset from her telling me I don't care about or for my daughter.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
