Would not ever recommend him , staff was hard to reach.Never saw the same healt care twice, so many of them I just got tired of going. Saw the actual Doctor one every 6 months. Because I had a few other doctors to see I missed some appointment was told they put me out the clinic. Best thing to ever happen ,love my new pulmonary Dr Now and my health is much better.

We were nervous when our 10 year old son was diagnosed as a Type 1 Diabetic. Dr. Leichter was able to see him in less than a week, but another local Endo couldn't see him for more than a month. I was warned away from this office, but I have nothing but good things to say. They talk to my son, and remember he is only 10. He has been trained as well as we have, which is important because he will have to deal with this for the rest of his life. I would recommend this office to anyone.

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.
