Dr. Leiter is thorough in her examinations, does not only perform the basics of a check up but also inquires and cares about her patients' wholistic health and wellbeing. She is efficient but is always more than willing to take extratime to discuss any patient concerns and answer any questions they may have. In fact, she encourages patients to ask additional questions so she can better educate them about their gynecological health! Dr. Leiter is always friendly and makes an effort to ask about her patients lives and actually remember the details. It is always a pleasure to see her!

Love this Doctor. Wish I found her years ago. She listens and spend time. After exam she spoke to me. I am so pleased. I have putting off the girly doctor because my last doctor stopped taking insurance. I am sothrilled to have found this doctor. I was in and out in an hour. If I had to wait wouldn't change my review and I wasn't rushed. She made me feel comfortable as we know this is t a pleasant exam. It was quick and painless and I liked her treatment t plan. I am thrilled.

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 patientand 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!
