Verified Patient Reviews
I rarely write reviews but after this amazing appointment I felt that I had to. Dr. Leiter was great. I find that often doctors have either a great bedside manner or great knowledge, but she has both! She was so patient and really took the time to get to know me. I am a bit of a hypochondriac and she patiently assuaged all my slightly silly fears and answered all my questions. She never made me feel that she had somewhere better or more important to be, even though I am sure she had many other patients who needed her time. She even inquired and helped me out with my mental and physical health! When I have kids one day I want her delivering my babies, and until then I will continue seeing her for my regular gyno appointments. So happy to have randomly come across her on ZocDoc and for deciding to give her a chance!
Incredible Doctor. I've been seeing her for 30 years. Best OBGYN in the city.
Excellent doctor - great bedside manner. Very postiive attitude, helpful and available. Love her!
Dr. Leiter was very thorough and seems genuinely interested in the health and well-being of her patients.

Excellent bedside manners, extremely knowledgable and patient
Dr. Leiter puts me at ease, is knowledgeable, thorough, and easy to talk to. She is the best gynecologist I've ever had.
Extremely considerate, professional, and very warm.
Had to wait for close to 2 hours to see the MD. Would have been nice if the office called BEFORE my appointment to advise me of the over 1 hour delay.
Very professional and caring. Very knowledgeable.
She was great! Very professional and incredibly nice which made the experience easier for a first time patient. The wait was a little long but definitely worth it.
Visit was professional, comfortable and thorough. She asked many questions and made it very open for me to voice concerns. Downside? I had a 9:30 appointment and was in the exam room at 10:45. The nurses said this was "normal."
Really nice lady and easy to talk to and knowledgable. Very calming nature.
Professional, warm and caring
Once you get past all the steps to see dr. Leiter (and the wait time!), the experience is great. Dr. Leiter is informative, friendly, and thorough. If you're fine with waiting 20-40 minutes for your appointment with dr. Leiter, highly recommended. If not, probably not recommended.
very professional, listens to your concerns, staff is very nice.
A doctor who genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her patients. Friendly and comforting to talk to.
She was extremely nice and made me feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend her.
Since it was my first appointment with her, She had me go over my background with her in her office before going into the examination room to get in a gown. I really liked that. Dr. Leiter was very kind and explained everything I needed to know very thoroughly.
I have been seeing Gila Leiter for many years. She attended the birth of both my children. She continues to provide valuable advice based in part on her extensive knowledge of her field, and in part on her willingness to really listen. I highly recommend her. That said, I have often waited for quite some time before an appointment.
Great as usual
Gila is just a great doctor. She cares about the whole person is thorough and available and smart. I travel 2.5 hours to see her.
Dr. Leiter was great! Very friendly and helpful.
she is a loving,caring person well experience and know what she is doing her staff are nice and caring.
Doctor Leiter is 100% worth recommending. She takes the time to hear your concerns and delivers professional and effective services. Waiting time could be a bit long, but it is definitely worth it.
Great doctor . Very personal and caring .i will choose her as my regular ductor especially that we are thinking about having another baby in a year or 2 . Very happy overall .
Great as always! Very professional, very caring doctor! I feel well taken care of and all my questions were answered. Dr. Leiter never rushes you, takes her time and makes you feel comfortable!
Great, very professional, did all the tests I needed and asked plenty of relevant questions. I felt reassured and in good hands.
Dr. Gila was extremely nice and very knowledgeable about different symptoms and helped me greatly.
Dr Leiter is great-- professional, great bedside manner, cares about the entire patient and not just a woman's reproductive organs. Waiting time can be long, , but I'm willing to sacrifice the time to see her.
Because the doctor is affiliated and works at Mt Sinai, she is delivering babies and ur appt gets shot! U wait in the waiting room, u wait in the office, u wait to do procedures. Not sure it's worth it. I notice that before fully taking care of one patient, doctor moves to another and then u wait some more....
Dr. Leiter seemed rushed and snide. This was my first time there and she really did not take any time listening to my concerns or explaining possible reasons. She RUSHED through her various explanations and in general the whole thing felt very impersonal an cold.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Dr Leiter was fantastic - her pre-evaluation was thorough and she seemed genuinely concerned about my health and didn't dismiss my concerns or questions. The exam itself was also thorough and not nearly as painful as it usually is. She explained the different procedures and course of action along the way. Afterward she reiterated what we discussed and took time to answer my final questions. A fantastic experience - one of the bet doctors I've encountered. One downside was the wait - about 30 mins before called to the office and additional 15 mins or so waiting for the exam to begin. HOWEVER, it was certainly worth the wait to have a doctor that treats you with respect rather than cattle.
It's been a while since I wa here, and Dr. Leiter either remembered all sorts of details about me or brushed up well before I got there. Either way, I appreciated the personalization of my visit.
She is one of the best doctors I have ever had. I see her once a year and she remembers little details from my visit before. Remarkable that she can do that. Her staff is fast, too. And very busy....but never rude. Such a great experience with this office and doctor.
Dr. Leiter is an knowledgeable physician with an excellent approach to patient care. She compassionate and clear in her communications. I highly recommend her.
I saw Dr. Leiter for my first Ob/Gyn exam, and I would definitely recommend her. She is pleasant,knowledgeable, and genuinely concerned for her patient's well-being.I had to wait for a little while, but I didn't mind terribly much. It seems as though of she would rather be attentive to her patient's concerns than rush them out of the office, so it was worthwhile to wait. The staff members were lovely and were kind enough to answer any questions I had, as I waited. Once again, would definitely recommend!
Have been seeing Dr. Leiter since I move to New York over two years ago. She's quick and efficient yet thorough and you don't feel rushed at all. I really feel like she thoroughly reviews my history every time and considers my family history too. She'll answer any question and if I've needed anything from her office, it's easy to get. The wait time for his visit was a little longer than usual today but I think she may have been the only doctor in the office today and needed to field some calls on behalf of her colleagues.
She's excellent. I would recommend her to anyone.
Don't recommend at all. Very condescending. Doesn't explain options very well. Not warm or kind. Her office is pretty outdated and needs remodeling. The changing room was literally a converted closet. The stirrups looked like they were covered with dirty gym socks. Didnt really seem to care about my well being. Never called back with lab results or anything. Find yourself a better doctor like I did.
Dr. Leiter is wonderful. She was very thorough, spent a lot of time explaining things to me, and left me feeling positive about treatment.Her staff was also very helpful and friendly.
Very nice manner is thorough and talks to the patient.
Love Dr. Leiter ! I won't change doctors unless she is no longer in Manhattan or retires. i was referred to her over 10yrs ago during which i tried to find a doctor closer to home, only to come back to Dr. Leiter.
Dr. Leiter was wonderful! Very kind and knowledgeable! I was not very happy with my previous OBGYN and switched to Dr. Leiter - and I am so happy with her I will definitely see her again! Can only recommend her!
Very friendly and professional, understanding and easy to talk to.
Very sweet and attentive
Dr. Gila was very attentive and was free to answer my questions. She's has a lot of background knowledge which is very important to see. Plus she knows a woman's body and understands it. Nice, clean office and clean room.
I had to have c-section surgery, my healing process was almost the same with vaginal birth. She was very careful about everything. highly recommended.
Good bedside manner, asked questions and listened to responses and whatever else I volunteered. Answered all questions professionally and thoroughly. Didn't rush through anything, and minimal wait.
Dr. Leiter is the one of the best doctors I have ever seen - in New York or anywhere else. Extremely courteous, attentive, smart and thorough. I have had such a headache finding good doctors in New York and felt so relieved to find someone I'm actually looking forward to continue seeing! I would recommend her to anyone.
Very professional, calming, would definately recommend to a friend.
She's great! Very thorough! Highly recomended!
Dr. Leiter was great. I'll be going back to her regularly and would highly recommend her to anyone else. This was my first gyno exam, and I was really hesitant about going, especially having made the appointment online. Dr. Leiter made the whole experience very comfortable. Very knowledgeable, totally non-judgmental, and explained everything so that I understood options and felt confident about my decisions. I waited about 30 minutes to be seen, but don't let that dissuade you. It was worth it for me and I'll be going back again.
Loved her, loved the whole office.
Finally diagnosed me with an insulin problem, something other doctors had been telling me for years wasn't something I should be tested for. Finally made so many of my symptoms for the last ten years make sense to me.
Great doctor with a super nice personality. Confident and very thorough.
Dr Leiter is very matter-of-fact, approachable and respectful of her patients.
Dr. Leiter has a wonderfully down-to-earth manner and put me at my ease from the get-go. She is professional, knowledgable, thorough and personable. I'm so thankful to ZocDoc for introducing me to yet another wonderful doctor. I hope to be a patient of hers for a long time to come.
She took time to explain things,very comfortable and easy to talk to.
I think Dr. Leiter was amazing. She made me feel very comfortable and answered all of my questions with superb knowledge. The staff was very helpful and kind as well.
This was my first time ever seeing an OB/GYN and I'm so happy that I found Dr. Leiter through ZocDoc. She instantly put me at ease and answered all my questions. I have already recommended Dr. Leiter to several of my friends.
Nicest doctor. Very highly recommended.
She was very courteous, friendly and an overall pleasure. Going to the OB-GYN can be a bit nerve racking however she made me feel very comfortable. The wait to get seen by the doctor was a but long but once I was in the office she was swift and thorough. I am surprised I found such a great Dr. off of the internet.
Dr. Leiter is the best! She takes her time and really talks to you during your appointment. I recommend her to everyone!
Very nice and knowledgable doctor, but they need to do something about the wait time. I had to wait over an hour to see the doctor for 10 minutes. I felt very rushed at the appointment and as if the doctor was running out the door.
Dr. Leiter was absolutely wonderful. She calmed my nerves listened to my concerns without judgement, and made me feel incredibly comfortable. She is now my new doctor!
Dr. Leither was friendly, easy to talk to, knowledgeable and efficient. I felt very confident in both her diagnostic abilities and the plan of action she suggested. I would definitely recommend her.
Very friendly and very thorough. She makes you feel extrememly comfortable which is always a plus.
Really good experience. I highly recommend her.
A great doctor. Don't delay.
She was great. took a genuine interest in my health history and lifestyle, and took her time to make sure she was addressing all issues and answering any questions. I was a little disappointed by the amount of time I had to wait in the exam room, but I'd go back anyway
I felt very confy and I am very happy that Doctor Leiter will take care for me during my first pregnancy!
Dr. Leiter is extremely kind and is not judgmental.
She was so professional, and not judgmental. Had no problem explaining her my deepest concerns. Wish I had seen her long time before. Came in worried, got out of her office calmer.
Dr. Leiter was great. One of the best doctors I have been to. She was thoughtful, interested, concerned, helpful, educated. She was easy to talk to and she listened to my issues thoroughly. I went to her with a lot of worries and left without a one. Her personality is great for what she does, too. She's very warm and considerate. I am so glad I found her.
Dr. Gila made me feel comfortable right away! Everyone in the clinic was really nice and helpful and I didn't have to wait too long. Dr. Gila is really friendly and sweet and she made sure that I got everything I needed to get checked. She seem to worry about her patients overall well being. I would highly recommend her to anyone and I'll surely go back to the same clinic next time that I need to get checked!
Dr. Leiter was great! She listened to me and I felt very comfortable talking with her. She was kind, professional, and gave it to me straight-that's how it should be done. I am sticking with her!!
seemed a little rushed when talking to me.
Hate visiting Doctor's, she made me feel really comfortable. I did have to wait for a bit before seeing anyone, but since it was the end of the day, she wasn't racing out the door after the appointment to meet someone else, which was nice.
Very happy with the consultation.
My visit with Dr. Leiter was great. It was my first appointment with her and I liked her right away - she made me feel very comfortable. I thought she was very competent, helpful and friendly. I will definitely be using her for future services.
longgggggggggggggggggggg wait was sooooooooooooo late for work
Dr. Leiter is great! I am so happy I found her. She does everything she can for her patients. She doesn't sugarcoat anything which I really appreciate.
Glad that I found Dr. Leiter! She is very professional and personable.
Wait time was a little long (1 hour for me) but the staff were very polite when I asked how much longer it would be and apologized for the wait. The Doctor is very personable and nice...a great woman's clinic overall.
