What Patients are Saying about Dr. Leff

Dr. Leff is the best eye dr. He fixed my eye problems and the ones I referral. To him, seems nothing is too difficult to fix. You just don't know how lucky you are if you can make an appointment with him. My life changed because of him. Thank you Dr. Left.

I have been a patient of Dr. Leff for over six years. He is very attentive to my concerns and always gives a good explanation of his treatment plans.

Friendly and professional staff. All of my questions and concerns were addressed. Dr Leff is easy to talk to and keeps me well informed.

My Mom was a patient of Dr. Leff many years ago and I knew him from taking her to her appointments when I went for my first appointment. I have been going for several years and getting injections in both eyes. He is a wonderful doctor, very knowledgeable and caring. He also puts his patients at ease with his sense of humor and his concern for the patient. I would recommend Dr. Leff to everyone. He is the best!

I have been seeing Dr. Leff for 3 years and highly recommend him.
