Verified Patient Reviews
Wait was a big long, but then I figured out why. Dr. Boris is very patient, understanding, takes the time to explain everything, ran several tests to make sure we didn't miss anything. He's very matriculate. Great doctor!
Poor bedside manner, rude staff, dirty office
I saw Dr. Leybel many years ago and he helped me with my fibromyalgia, he gave that tough love but sometimes we need that, I was okay for many years without treatment but now symptoms or flare up is acting up so now I'm back. Hopefully he can help me again. He was very professional and friendly as well as his staff. They were thorough and did all kinds of testing on my first visit. It took awhile but that's good.
Extremely professional and nice, along with his staff. Seemed to be very thorough, asked many questions (regarding my issue and pain) as he noted each of them down and was concerned enough to have me follow up with him in a few weeks if symptoms persist. I walked in to the waiting room worried and after meeting with him I left feeling very relieved. I highly recommend him.
absolutely trust doctor Boris leybel knowledges and professionalism, and special talent for making spinal shots
A very professional doctor, recommended.
worst doctor ever
He was knowledgeable but i didnt like that he allowed his secretary to do the eeg and the sonogram. I doubt that she was a secretary and had a medical background. Then instead of reading the results the secretary/medical asst told me to call the dr on monday. The wait was also long.
He takes many precautions to come to an accurate diagnosis
Had great experience with Boris Leybel, I've seen many neurologists at this point and most would just not help me with my problem. Because they weren't even listening. Boris is very attentive, listened to my long history (in Russian and English) and diagnosed me with what I've been waiting for all neurologists to say..it was right on point. He mapped out treatments and I liked that the approach is holistic use homeopathy. I am very happy with Boris Leybel and will strongly recommend him
He tried to charge a lot of money upfront before he had even seen my husband. My husband threatened to call United Healthcare and report him, and he backed down. Other than that, he was ok.
maybe he's good at his job but he takes absolutely no time to explain to you what he is doing or why. It just felt like he was prescribing pain killers. I asked a few questions, none of which he was willing to answer. Not an ideal experience and not comforting at all. Would not recommend him to anyone.
Everyone there was very pleasant. I didn't have to spend a day and a half there just to be seen. They were quick in getting me seen by the doctor and he was able to see what my problem was.
Dr. Leybel is excellent. He was very attentive to my concerns about my health and medications. He spent an extensive amount of time talking with me. He never gave any indication that he was bothered by my endless questions. He examined me to try and pin point the nature of my pain. Unlike previous doctors who don't bother to examine you on the first visit and want to rush you out with a prescription. After the exam we discussed medication and a treatment plan. The medications that he prescribed has me pain free for the first time in a very long time. His office was clean and his assistant at the front desk was very professional and extremely polite. Looking forward to my next visit. Thank you to Dr.Leybell and his assistant.
He is 100/% he is very kind and very nice. One of the best. And his staff is real.
he is an awesome doctor!! I have gotten two epidural injections for my herniated disc and I can not begin to explain how gentile he is. I had no complications...
Dr Leybel was simply fantastic. He made time to see us, on very short notice, and made sure to find an intervention to relieve the pain. He was thoughtful and considerate to explain exactly what was happening and what type of relief to expect. Would highly recommend him to anyone experiencing chronic pain. Dr. Leybel is top/notch.
Thoughtful, professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommended.
The entire staff is excellent.
Great service and an excellent specialist.Thanks
Doctor is very understanding and accurate with his analysis.
The office itself is very uninviting. Very run down and the staff is not very friendly. I changed insurance companies and needed my prescription refilled by a new doctor that carries my insurance provider. I knew exactly what was wrong with me and treatment that works. He had no problem writing the prescription for me, but then proceeded to run a bunch of tests that seemed very pointless and time consuming. The appointment was going on 2 hours so I eventually just told the nurse that I was leaving and not staying for any more tests. I will not be returning to this doctor.
He was attentive and explained what he was doing and why
Dr Leybel is an awesome Dr. He explains everything in detail an offers the most effective trest mentioned without the use of hard medication. His bedside manner is superior and his nurse Christina and PA Valentina are awesome as well. I would definitely recommend going to see him.
Words cannot describe how happy I am i have found Dr. Leybel. He had me at not hello :) ,but at the moment he didnt take a momemt to examine me , but took his time. His PA Valentina took hours to listen to my story of my pain that I have for over 5 years. I attended a pain managemnt office and hot deep injections doen which hurt like hell but hardly helped me because I came to redo them next day. See, after i left am office i attented for over 3 years , i. The last month I attende 4 doctors, and all of them eother want to do an injection right away or prescribe Gabapentin which i had a worse aide effects with. DR amd his PA ACTCUALLY LISTENED AND BELIEVED MY Pain. I have been through evey hospital in Bk and even Staten island and a lot of doctors ,but this is the first doctor Who actually didnt forget that its says Pain Management on his door. He is not judgemental and gave me so much hope . He is the first doctor to look at my pain from a different level and is looking for the root of it through a totally different way. I can tell for sure that he is there not to make money as most of them but ACTUALLY HELP PEOPLE TO DEAL WITh PAIN and eventually become Pain Free ,Not prescribing medication that kill liver or give stomach ulcers but looking for the root of the problem. He didnt hurry as others to do the deep injection and precribe me Gabapentin. He is just soooo nice as a person and so knowledgable as a professional. It's very important that the doctor believes his parient and its hard to do these days , Iunderstand ,because of all drug abusers who made it so much harder for people who live with chronic pain. . I have a hope , hope to be pain free and live a life because last 4 years for me wasn't living , it was just not dying . I beleive Dr. Legbel will change all of that.Thank you, Dr. Leybel for being there for your patients. Especially , for my kids , they need me and you help me be there for them every day .
My pain level was extremely high and I was doubtful anyone could help but Dr. Leybel was very attentive and I wondered why I didn't see him years ago. I am lucky to have found him.
Dr. Leybel is great. He is very smart and knowledgeable, communicates extremely well, and is very personable. I recommend him highly. Probably the best doctor I have ever seen. Really took his time to explain things to me and addressed all of my concerns.
The only kind people in his office was his receptionist and his tech. The Doctor is extremely rude and condescending.
Completely rude. Doesn't explain things thoroughly and doesn't seem to listen or really care what you have to say because he believes he is right. Very unprofessional, doesn't know what doctor-patient confidentiality means.
Horrible. Basically accused me of being a drug addict, seems to only are about Russian patients. I will NEVER go back.
Visited for neck pain, testing, and evaluation. Front desk was indifferent and slow. P.A. was very good, EMG tech was good, but barely spoke English. Wait time too long. Also, online appointment sent me to West 39th in error, rather than 225 Broadway. I am confident in the doctor's skills and diagnosis, although the office needs improved process. I would recommend this doctor.
I did't care for the doctor. I told the Dr. want I've been diagnosis with by several doctors in the last 3 years and was told you don't have this so please stop telling people this. Then the doctor realized was reading report after surgery. Didn't apologize and couldn't read films. Also had me wait while she ate . Don't go to this office. Also no address on building spoke with receptionist 3 times and didn't say a thing
Dr. Leybel is a gifted and knowledgeable physician. I have suffered from pain for many years until I met with Dr. Leybel. He was able to explain to me in details what is causing my symptoms and how to go about it. His bedside manner is excellent and he is amazing at performing all types of procedures. I have done procedures such as epidural blockades with other physicians as well, however, after finding Dr. Leybel (6 years ago) I will not go to anyone else. I have had the best experiences with this doctor and will highly recommend him to everyone in need of neurological care.
Very nice staff and clean office. The wait time has decreased dramatically, I was seen in less then 15 minutes.
Very good experience I had with this doctor ! Very professional, clearly demonstrated and knew what he was talking about. Seemed genuinly concerned about my well being ! Definitely would recommend !
Aside from what I consider a long wait, 50 minutes, I was very satisfied with the consultation with the Dr.
Very attentive, listened to my problems and understood. He is very knowledgeable in his field. I've been to a few doctors over the past 4+ years who just wanted to prescribe drugs without even first evaluating my injuries. He did test that needed to be done (that was very relevant to my injuries) without me even asking, very very professional doctor that I would recommend to anybody. Thank you very much Dr. Leybel.

Long wait, good diagnosis but many tests.
It's called buisness . Again about the mighty old dollar !!
Nice man & very helpful. He was very patient answering all my questions re: a back problem.
Dr. Leybel spent a lot of time with me gathering history and answering my questions.
great doc. felt comfortable discussing my issues. he was cool and took time to clearly explain the diagnosis/treatment options
I got lost driving tohis new location in Fairlawn and wound up 45min late! I saw him within 10 min:)
Dr. Leybel is a very caring and attentive. He carefully listened to my concerns before offering different treatment alternatives. Highly recommend him!!
Good doctor, but I didn't feel there was a lot of transparency re fees etc.
The most knowledgable neurologist I have ever met. Dr. Leybel has great bedside manner and his hands are miracle workers. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed!
Very thorough in his evaluation and explained all options.
Dr. Leybel is an educated very kind and pleasant doctor, he will take his time to run tests to find the right diagnosis and treatment plan. He is the first neurologist who spent more then just 10 minutes with me.
Everyone was polite. The doctor took the time to explain what was going on so that when I left the office I had no questions.
I liked him. He was very thorough and explained things well.
Very thorough, very knowledgeable. I highly recommend him.
Very nice im happy to be there
I went to this practice after I had an episode of double vision. I have a history of vision related migraines and was concerned that perhaps they were escalating. Specifically, I was concerned about the risk of stroke. I was not impressed with the care I received. First, the area where they perform test procedures was in complete disorder and uninviting. The technician performing these tests seemed distracted at times and none of the test procedures were thoroughly explained to me until I asked for them to be. Once I completed the in office tests, I was asked to get an MRI and then to return to the office two weeks later to discuss the results of all procedures including the MRI. Upon return, my results were given to me first by a PA not Dr. Leybel. She seemed to recognize that I would have preferred to see Dr. Leybel so she eventually had him come in to speak to me. While all my tests were normal, I think that Dr. Leybel and his associates/technicians could certainly be more informational in terms of testing procedures/results and more caring to the patient in general.
Very caring. Explained every step of the procedure. Interested in the wellbeing after.
I will have some comments once I copleate the treatment. There are some tests pending.
Very knowledgeable and I highly recommend this doctor.
Got the impression that the doctor is highly knowledgable
Great doctor! Very professional, attentive, caring!
Dr. Leybel exudes knowledge and compassion as well as the nurse practioner.
Dr. Leybel was very attentive and knowledgeable and offered a choice of treatment options.
He generally seemed concerned with my well-being and truly wanted to help me with my issue, which I believe he has done. Thanks!
Quick, easy, and didn't order tons of unnecessary tests- always a plus when you've had a chronic injury for years!
The whole office was amazing the sectary who helped me with my paper work was so nice amd very very helpfull and a pleasure to deal with ...The PA Valentina was so sweet and really sat down and explained everything so that I understood 100% And I feel she went out of her way just to make sure I new exactly what care I would have plus explained to me all the mistakes other offices made with me .. I really wish I new about this office a long time ago cause I would recommend everyone and anyone .... Plus doctor Boris MD is even more amazing !!! He's a great doctor and is helping with more than I expected I already felt much better knowing I'm in great hands And I'm confidant they will get me 100% better faster than I expected ... Thank you so much DR Boris & Valintina and staff for making my office visit a fast And great experience !!!!!
The office and a equipment are pretty dated. Had 2 appointments, showed up on time for both bt waited over an hour to be seen both times.
Dr. Leybel is an excellent physician. He is very attentive and had me feeling better almost immedietly. I would recommend him to any one.
the doctor was on time, very professional and most importantly listened to me without interruption. he explained his diagnosis and walked me through his proposed plan for treatment.
He was thorough in his checkup and extremely knowledgeable about the types of procedures and medications available. I have been suffering from severe migraines out of nowhere and the combination of meds he prescribed has helped tremendously in only a few days!
Very thorough and considerate. Took time to discuss issue and options.
I had a 9:30 time for both appointments and both times he did not show up to the office until after 10. Answered his cell phone TWICE during my first consultation. Very unprofessional experience over all.
