Who thought that a visit to the doctor's office could actually be enjoyable? Dr. Kalam was attentive and I actually feltlike I was being listened to. I filled in my check-in forms prior to my visit and I was seen less than 5 minutes after arriving. I moved to NYC 4 years ago and LOVE the city and the energy but don't want that hustle and bustle feel when I'm at the doctor's office. The office is calming and everyone makes you feel at ease. I've finally found my primary care office!

I'm so glad Leaf Medical opened up in Long Island City. The look and feel of the office is top notch. The online check in procedure was seamless and the staff is very helpful and friendly. I was seen right at my appointment time (why don't other offices do this?). It felt nice knowing that a doctor's office respects my time.

I saw Dr. Kalam recently and was very impressed, both with her competent and caring service, as well as the efficiency and cleanliness of the Leaf Medical office where she works. Dr. Kalam was cheerful and extremely nice, putting me at ease and making me feel confident that I could tell her all of my medical and health issues. I also felt assured that she is a very experienced and knowledgeable doctor who will be a great fit for my needs.
