Up until recently I had thought that Dr Leder was a really good doctor. He has treated my mom's dementia since it started and when I asked him to fill out a form for some VA benefits for my mom I was told that it would cost $1,000. This is NO exaggeration. In fact his front office staff said to take it to her PCP or some other doctor because any doctor could fill it out. Needless to say, I don't plan on taking my mom to see him again because the more I thought about it the more I realized that he never did anything for my mom that her PCP or some other doctor couldn't do!

Money hungry. Demeaning attitude. Too smart to explain his wrong diagnosis. Arrogant. Took 3 visits to misdiagnose.

Straightforward, thorough and informative explaining his findings. I would both recommend Dr. Leder and see him again if I were to encounter another neurological issue.

I see a few specialists for small problems and Dr. Leder is by far the best doctor I have ever been under the care of. I was just there yesterday for a follow up and even though they were running behind schedule due to an emergency at the hospital, Dr. Leder recognized a problem I was having without me saying much and took the time to make sure I was going to be okay and adjusted my medications. I'm very thankful to have him as one of my doctors, he saved my sanity yesterday.

Arrogant doctor with condescending attitude. I was dangerously misdiagnosed. Another doctor proclaimed this man dangerous to patients. Unable to explain to procedures. "I have too much experience to explain the details of my decision." Ha... I love when a doctor has the attitude of just pay me I've been to medical school and I shouldn't be questioned. Wrong!!! I'm buying a service which includes an explanation. Bottom line is he sucks as a medical professional.

Dr Leder does not even deserve to see a patient- he does not ask any question from the patient - he just spends about 15 minutes typing something on his computer while patient just watches him.. Then after 15 minutes of typing (may be he writes his personal emails in this time) he comes up with most expansive tests which are NOT needed and does not belong to his expertise (which is NONE).. His staff is more stupid than him.

Arrogant!! Please don't see him. There are far better doctors in The Woodlands to see. His reputation precedes him but not in a good way.

Zero. Egotistical doctor with poor bedside manner. All he wants to do is hand out meds. Didn't have time to explain diagnosis. Take these pills, trust me, I know what I'm doing. I have an idea, if the pills are so good for you why aren't you taking them? 2 visits to get to know me(ie collect insurance money) 3rd visit prescribed meds that could have killed me.

Dr. Leder treated me for approximately 18 months for trigeminal neuralgia. I found him to be patient, knowledgeable, and compassionate.

I was at my wits end to find a Dr of Dr Leder's knowledge of what was wrong with me, that even cared how long or sick I am, & took Medicare. On my decision, if this Dr brought no compassion, kindness, patience & respect in the room with him I was done as could be. At 67 yrs old would spend what was left of my life on my own with no help before taking anymore garbage & lack of respect I have endured. I have found my Dr, he will remain my Dr. God willing. Pain is at least 40% better so far. Thanks

Dr, Leder pre-diagnosed my mother with a very rare fatal disease and ordered an invasive spinal tap, without first ruling out a very common stroke. He could have ordered a CT scan and saved the family a grief-stricken 3 weeks by finding out her history (afib), CT scan, and current medications. Not malpractice, just no practice at all. Jaw-droppingly poor performance.
