Dr. Lef changed my life. I was having side effects from one of my bp meds and she was the only one who could figure it out after many many specialists and suffering. She is now my pcp. Thanks Dr Lef!!!

I saw Dr. Lef because she accepted my insurance, was in a fairly convenient location, and had online scheduling through ZocDoc. I stuck with her even when my insurance changed because of the other reasons, and I liked that the affiliationwith NYU made my information easily available through the app, but I didn't really like her. She was never hurtful or rude, but in the conversations we had, I could tell that she couldn't understand where I was coming from, and she more than once contradicted information given to me by my other providers (specialists in their respective fields). I didn't feel listened to, and I felt I couldn't be honest without being judged. She may be a competent doctor, but she was not the doctor for me. It's taken me a couple years to accept, but I will be looking for another PCP.

It's a pretty quick visit, feels a bit rushed, but when have no health issues I guess there's no reason for it to be any longer. She is good about approving refills and things like that. I did have to waitfor ~20 minutes before calling down the hall for someone to come in and take my blood because she forgot to actually tell the nurse to come in and take my blood. So that was a negative.

She and the staff at NYU West Side Ambulatory Care are the absolute best! Helpful and friendly. Dr Lef is so much more than competent. I trust her, she is caring and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her.

The doctor rushed through the appt and dismissed all my concerns as trivial. She was quick to prescribe me a sleeping pill without even asking for more details about my sleep issue, and wrote me a doctor's note for a standingdesk without caring to ask what it was for. Basically, she was just in a rush to get on to the next patient and I left with an uneasy feeling and a lot of unanswered questions.

Dr Lef was amazing. She didn't rush me in or out. She took time with me and asked questions. Her whole office was also very sweet with me because I'm a bit of a baby with blood being drawn. It was quick and painless. I definitely recommend.

Part of a huge efficient practice. A lot of things that needed to be done before seeing the doctor, but very little waiting at any stage -- I barely sat down before someone took me to an examination room, it wasless than five minute before the PA (I think) came to take my blood pressure and weigh me, less than five minutes to see the doctor when she was done, less than five minute after the doctor was done for the PA (I think) to take my blood. The doctor kept things moving along too, but she was very careful to ask if I had any questions.

She was great! It was just a physical so a pretty short appointment but when we spoke she really seemed to listen carefully and carefully acknowledged everything that I said. Im so happy to have finally found a great primary careprovider in NYC. Everyone else was really great too at that location.

If you need actual medical care look elsewhere. Dr. Lef pushed me out of the room dismissing my concerns saying "you're just stressed, you should get a new job". Wow. She was literally no help.

She seems fine, not the best or worst GP I have been to. I went in for a physical. She listened to that which was wrong with me at the moment, did a seemingly cursory physical compared to what I amused to and I imagine will rely on the bloodwork to determine whether there is anything wrong. I will probably try someone else next time, but it's 50/50. Nurses were fantastic.

I was very disappointed with the lack of bedside manner and fact that I was given 5 minutes with the doctor. It was an "annual physical" in which there was hardly a physical. I am also still dealing with the messedup prescriptions as the doctor sent all of the wrong dosages to the pharmacy. It's as if I was a burden. I won't be going back.
