Excellent visit-- patient education, process, etc.
Dr. Leipzig is AMAZING, she is very kind and genuinely cares about her patients. Wait time was no issue, it’s a doctors office. Definitely recommend!
My appointment was scheduled for 5pm, I didn't go back until nearly 7 and was kind of annoyed about the long wait. My annoyance went away once I received Dr. Leipzig's undivided attention and care. Although she was staying late, she was not in a hurry. We had great conversation and discussed all of my issues thoroughly. I have never felt so at ease at a gynecology appointment. The waiting room has wifi, so I had my laptop and continued to work which made the wait go by quickly.
Wonderful attentive doctor!
Dr. Leipzig is incredibly warm and thorough. She never makes you feel rushed and addresses many aspects of your health similar to a primary care physician.
She was incredibly thorough, kind and thoughtful. My only qualm is that the wait was incredibly long and I was the first patient of the day.
I was very happy with my visit and will absolutely be back. I found her to be knowledgable and I immediately felt comfortable. I did, however, have to wait for a considerable amount of time to be seen.
She's caring and brilliant.
Make sure to ask how much an initial appointment with any of the doctors at this office will run you, because I was more than surprised to find out how much it was to just get an annual check up! Dr. Leipzig was more than great, but I cannot go back if I'm met with a bill like the one that was dropped on me. I specified more than a few times that I had no insurance and was paying out of pocket, but not once did anyone mention what the total would be before I was seen. And they already have those amounts set, so it wasn't that they couldn't know beforehand! I am so frustrated and I feel like I was basically robbed by the office!
The wait time was long, but that wasn’t an issue for me. Dr. Leipzig was incredible. The issue I went for was sensitive and she was kind, understanding, and professional about it. I will be going to her from now on for any gynecological issues.
She was AMAZING! super attentive and made me really comfortable! so sad my job switched insurance which is no longer in her network =( . HIGHY RECOMMEND!
Waited over half an hour in the waiting room and 40 minutes in the exam room. Dr Leipzig is amazing, but the wait is always very long.
She's very thorough and that's the most important thing. I arrived late and she still saw me in a timely manner. She asks many questions and makes helpful suggestions based on the medical history you provide. Overall she's very thorough and that's essential.
Dr. Leipzig is smart, warm, and caring. She is an amazing doctor if you are looking for a new gyn shes who you want to see.
Very good, except for the long wait. Luckily they have wifi and i was able to entertain myself in the meantime.
She was very nice and thorough and seems to be genuinely interested in her patients.
Great doctor, when sh'es not overworked, she can be very helpful and understanding. She's great for older/more established patients but maybe not the best for someone is her 20's. The wait time is horrible! I had a 3pm appointment and didn't see the doctor until a little after 5pm. If you end up seeing her, I suggest booking an early time or bringing a good book with you.
I absolutely adore Dr. Leipzig. There are not enough good things I could say about her. She has been a solid rock of a physician for me throughout my miscarriages and this current pregnancy. Honestly, I feel so lucky to have found her and I couldn't think of anyone else I would rather want to be my OB.
Great doctor. Will come back.
Dr. Shari is very knowledgeable and helpful, however, her appointments run very late which is difficult for a working person
Doctor Leipzig is simply amazing! She is very gentle, caring and follows up on any questions or concerns you have. She is one of the best Doctors I am fortunate to see. Overall, I am very happy with my visit.
Good doctor but a wait time of an hour and forty minutes is completely unacceptable and inconsiderate to patients and the office doesn't seem too fazed by it. If you have those kinds of wait times, you should let people know in advance...or get it together and cut down on wait times!
Dr Leipzig is one of the most patient , caring providers I have ever encountered. Highly recommend her and her caring staff !
Dr. Leipzig's office is clean and inviting. The staff is really friendly, and there's even wifi! Most importantly, Dr. Lepizig is efficient, but also makes time to get to know you as a person and address all of your concerns so you don't feel violated when a stranger is inspecting your most intimate lady parts. She inserted my IUD a few months ago and did it so fast! Seriously, it was over in about 3 minutes. You can tell she really cares. I would recommend her to anyone!
Great doctor and woman . Very kind and nice person
Great facility and awesome people. Everything is clear, concise, and correct. Best doctor's office I've ever been to.
My wife is pregnant and she was seeing the doctor that all our friends recommended, but it just didn't feel right. We found dr. Leipzig through ZocDoc and despite not having other references we decided to give it a go. She was extremely helpful from day 1 and we decided she was the right person right away. Dr. Leipzig doesn't have a fancy office or advanced apparatus but different than other doctors we felt like she cared and was fully there to support us. She is very knowledgeable and supportive, and has the right touch to talk about risks/worries without freaking us out. She is also solicitous in addressing calls/texts whenever we have a question. I highly recommended dr. Lepzig.
Dr. Leipzig is the best. She makes you feel like you are her only patient. Highly recommend.
Thorough and very professional! I would highly recommend Dr. Leipzig.
I really liked Dr. Leipzig; I'm a new patient, and she took the time to talk about everything, and was easy to talk to. The wait time was a little long, but I was also a new patient and had to fill out paperwork (and didn't get there early to do that thanks to the train) so it's possible other patients were seen first. I would definitely recommend!
One word.. Amazing!!!!! She listens and really cares about your health. Also calls to follow-up on your status, additional recommendations and discuss lab results....
she is amazing, she made me feel comfortable. She would start small talk so i would be too distracted to feel uncomfortable. First doctor to actually care how i was feeling.
This was my first visit and Dr. Leipzig was wonderful and accommodating!
Dr. Leipzig is the best - I've been seeing her for years and don't know what I'll do if I ever have to move out of the city. The wait can be annoying sometimes but worth it to see a gyno who actually cares about your problems.
This was my first time at this location and seeing Dr. Leipzig. I waited a little while before she saw me but it was a busy day so I completely understand. Dr. Leipzig was very caring with me and fully interviewed me on my health and medical history. I comforted knowing that she took her time with me and it really gave me a sense of how rare it is to find a good GYN Doctor now these days! She was simply amazing and very attentive to my questions. Her staff was also very friendly. The rooms were kept in good clean standards. Overall, I was very pleased Dr. Leipzig and her team. I am glad to have finally found a good location and excellent Dr. for my care! I would strongly recommend Dr. Leipzig, and I am sure her longtime patients would agree :)
The entire office was fantastic. The front desk staff, nurses, and Dr Leipzig were all knowledgeable, enlightening and compassionate. Great visit and I highly recommend!
Dr. Leipzig, was Great. She took her time with me, didn't feel rushed like in other Dr's office. Overall the visit was a Great experience.
Dr Leipzig is great! She is really friendly, really gentle and is helpful in answering any and all questions
This was my first time seeing Dr. Leipzig and I am very happy to have found her! I was shuffled around from room to room a few times due to how busy she is and I had to wait 30 mins past my appointment time BUT she is worth waiting for. She is the first doctor I've seen (since pediatrics) that seems to genuinely care about her patients. She takes the time to sit down with you, chat, ask you questions, listen to your answers, talk about concerns, give referrals, etc. I know when I have an appointment I will have to block out additional waiting time and that's ok with me!
She is so nice and kind psychian who i ever met before ... She was helpful , knowledable ... She listens to you carefully gives every answers right away...
Always thorough-- provides excellent care.
Thorough exam and great demeanor.
Absolutely AMAZING Doctor! She's extremely thorough, patient, and understanding. I've referred a number of my girlfriends to her, and they all agree that she is a wonderful doctor. I highly recommend having her as your ob/gyn!
It took long time to be seen but she was very thorough and attentive.
Great visit as a new patient. I'm looking forward to having her as my new doctor.
She is a wonderful doctor, very patient and precise. Just be prepared to spend few hours of your time in there, but I think it was worth it
She seems professional and someone who knows what she does, but the wait is tooo loooong. Besides she seems in hurry all the time, even while speaking to you.
Lovely, attentive staff. Dr. Leipzig is extremely helpful with excellent bedside manner.
She is worth the wait because she spends a lot of time with each patient and you never feel like she is rushing you. Bring a book to read while you wait. It's worth it.
Hands down the best doctor I've ever visited.
Dr. Leipzig is the type of doctor that once you find you never leave. The office is clean (a little old but not an issue for me), the front desk staff are nice and patient. Dr. Leipzig is very thorough and professional. She takes the time to speak with you about any concerns you are having. She keeps in mind what insurance will and will not cover. I can't say enough positive things, I highly recommend her!
to begin, staff was rude and unprofessional. i arrived to multiple staff loudly arguing/screaming at someone on the phone behind the glass, and also later on snapped at me when i asked why i had to wait over 3 hours to be seen. i asked if this very long wait was unusual, and they said not at all. when finally seen, dr leipzig told me all if my sexual and disfunction issues are because i am overweight, & therefore that i should learn to "eat like a bird" and sign up for weight watchers if she is to treat me. during this innitial appointment i had brought her all of my current complex medical records, stating that i have a true medical condition-- but instead of trying to understand my complexity, she attributed everything to just simply being overweight. when in reality i am overweight because of these underlying medical conditions. i (like many) dont have any control over my illness, and i dont appreciate being made to feel bad for having an illness. next, she began writing prescriptions before telling me what my actual gynocological problem was. she ran screeners, and i never recieved a call back regarding results the tests i had done. lastly, she was very insensitive when i was in pain and crying when she inserted her tools, and she did not try and adjust her approach in any way. overall, this was an awful experience, and i would not recommend this gynocologist to anyone.
Dr. Leipzig is really wonderful. She takes time with her patients to really understand them and is also very balanced in her recommendations (not extreme). When complications arose, she immediately connected me to all of the best specialists and helped me to get appointments before the baby arrives. She has a wonderful network she calls on, which I have come to truly value with the complications. She also went above and beyond to coordinate with the specialists and communicate the findings back with me--even over the weekend. Truly exceptional. The only downsides at her office is the wait you will likely have before seeing her and the somewhat dated office. In my opinion, the upsides of a wonderful doctor with a great network who really takes the time to coordinate your care far outweighs these downsides.
She was very helpful and thorough. Took a full history and hand written instructions for my medication. Highly recommend her just a bit of wait to be seen.
Excellent doctor. The best obgyn in town if you ask me.
Friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. However, the wait time is way too long!
I've never felt a doctor care as much for what I had to say as Dr Leipzig
She is great and caring!
Dr Leipzig is great! I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Leipzig is the best. She spends a lot of time with each patient and doesn't rush anyone. Be prepared to wait. It's worth it.
I really liked my experience. Dr. Leipzig is extremely professional. Not like other doctors that I've seen in the past two years Dr. Leipzig doesn't seem to be in a hurry. She took her time to talk with me about my life and the reason I was there. Great office equipped with top of the line machines. I highly recommend her services.
Dr. Leipzig is the most wonderful doctor. I have seen her several times over the last 8 months for various issues. I cannot recommend her enough. She is a wealth of knowledge, so thorough, kind and patient. I feel so lucky to have found her. Brenda on reception and nurse Lauren are always such a pleasure to deal with too.
Shari is practical, kind and thorough. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Leipzig is very thorough and takes all of your concerns seriously. The wait times are long but it is well worth it. This was my second visit and I will continue to return for future appointments.
Dr Leipzig was great and really thorough. She was easy to talk to and very patient and seemed really knowledgable. The staff was also really friendly. The wait to see her was really long. My appointment started an hour late, so I wouldn't suggest it if you're in a rush!
Dr. Leipzig is a true professional. I have confidence in her.
Dr. Leipzig was professional and competent.
dr. leipzig was good, but i wouldn't say she was so amazing that made it worth the absurdly long wait time.
Dr. Shari Leipzig is wonderful! Highly recommend her! Made me feel extremely comfortable and at ease!
Dr. Leipzig is an amazing physician - caring and attentive. Unfortunately, over the last few years the wait times for your appointment have exploded. Even with one of the first morning appointments, I waited over an hour in the waiting room before being shown into an exam room, and then another 45 minutes before seeing Dr. Leipzig. Of course I understand there are sometimes medical emergencies that cause delays, however this has happened for the last few appointments.
Dr. Leipzig was very nice and the staff were super friendly and helpful. It is important to note that the office/equipment is very out dated. I will continue using Dr. Leipzig as my doctor.
She is worth the wait. Very thorough and smart.
Great, very thorough, but I wouldn't go back due to the long wait times. I was in the office for 3.5 hours, 2.25 of which was spent sitting comfortably in the waiting room, slightly less comfortably in her office, and finally much less comfortably (and in a greater state of undress) in an examination room. Good clinician, frank and honest, but caring, but (little or) no apology for the long waits. Nurses were fantastic as well, though the front desk staff were pretty typical for New York medical offices (which is to say, curt and not too friendly or forthcoming.) *Really helpful and informative call back from the Dr. with lab results.
I've been going to Dr. Leipzig for 5 years. She has wonderful bedside manner, I feel like she really cares and she never makes me feel rushed. She takes her time with her patients, but for that reason, the downside is that her wait times can be really, really long. I also feel like she doesn't subscribe to the craziness that surrounds pregnancy - she is never alarmist, which I appreciate in a doctor. I'd highly recommend her, as long as you set your expectations about wait time. Be prepared to wait for 1.5+ hours.
As always she's wonderful and answers all of my questions objectively
Extremely thorough and intelligent. Highly recommend.
She gets straight to the point, is very professional and not judgmental. She's great. Highly recommend,
It was professional and she was very patient
I was seen as a new patient, and she first sat down with me in her office to go over my history and all of my concerns. I never felt rushed and she took my concerns seriously. She was not the warmest but I still felt very comfortable and felt like she knew what she was talking about. The office staff were also super nice which is not something I can say about most doctor's offices. My only complaint would be the wait time/ total duration of the appointment which was 2 hours total from start to finish.
Shari gets straight to the point, doesn't sugar coat anything. The office makes you feel like you're cattle being shifted in and out. Staff is not very warm or friendly, its very business like, not something that found very comforting when had a few procedures done.
The doctor is wonderful and friendly. The wait is long.
Dr Leipzig was amazing! She was so patient with me and answered ALL of the questions I asked (there were many).
Very informative and kind taking her time to explain everything carefully.
She's such an amazing doctor! She takes the time to listen to your concerns, and thoroughly checks you. In no way do you feel rushed, or like an "object for probing". Her staff are also very nice, and allow you to feel comfortable. I recommended her to a friend, and she loves her as well.
She was very thorough and very nice. I felt that I was listened to and received detailed advice and recommendations. I will definitely return.
As always, Dr. Leipzig is succinct and efficient. Been going to her for 11 years and I wouldn't have it any other way!
Everytime I go back to her I am reminded that she is the best doctor I have ever seen!! Lovely, caring, tender, thoughtful doctor. I can't say enough nice things.
I moved out of NYC a few years ago, but I still go to Dr Leipzig - she is an excellent doctor.
Been going to Dr. Leipzig for years and am happy everytime.
I love Doctor Leipzig, but waiting 60+ minutes is pretty unacceptable. The least the staff should do is call patients and tell them that they're behind schedule and give the option to reschedule or come in X minutes late. Otherwise, the doctor is very pleasant and knowledgable. She has great bedside manner. The office is clean and professional. I recommend calling an hour before your appointment and ask if they will be taking you on time to save yourself from waiting 1+ hrs in the wait room. She is a great doctor, but waiting this long is painful and we all have things to do!
Very thorough, answered all of my questions and concerns.
Thorough, kind, good beside manner.
She is fantastic. Smart, caring and evidence based. Took the time to chat about my questions and had very smart answers.
I feel very fortunate to have come across Dr. Leipzig. She exceeds any other physician whose care I have been under in every aspect. She is so incredibly thorough and determined to ensure you are at your best, addressing every issue you may have and offering explanations and solutions. The wait times are caused by her dedication to ensuring every patient is cared for fully. She is absolutely worth any amount of wait.
Always a horrendously longwait, even when you're the first appointment of the day. Dr. Leipzig is a good doctor, but given the wait time, you can only come here if its your only plan for the day (not realistic for anyone with a job).
I liked Dr. Leipzig but waiting for 55 minutes before even being brought back to the exam room and then waiting there for another 10-15 is totally unacceptable.
She is great !
She is great
Dr. Leipzig is sensitive, very well informed, made me feel comfortable and has a wonderful bedside manner. She truly cares about her patients - in the 15 years I have been going to her I have always been more than pleased.
I love Dr. Leipzig - she is wonderful and I have had a fantastic experience with her, both for routine care and for the birth of my first child. Office is a bit inefficient but that is because she spends time with each patient and doesn't pay attention to the clock. I'm willing to make the tradeoff and spend the time to wait because she is so phenomenal.
Receptionist was not very friendly and not very welcoming. No smile at all. Wait time is ridiculous. First I waited one hour in the waiting area, then another 20 min in the exam room. There was heavy interior construction noise going on that made the wait time even worse. Dr. Leipzig is friendly and professional but I still wished that my former OBGyn would take my new insurance. Dr. Leipzig's office interior and medical equipment are a little bit outdated.
Dr. Leipzig is an excellent doctor. She is extremely thorough and you can feel that she is concerned with all aspects of women's health. I enjoyed my visit and glad I found Dr. Leipzig.
I was upset about the long wait. I waited 45 minutes and made a complaint. One receptionist was very rude when I asked why is my appt. for 1pm and I'm still waiting to see her at 1:45pm? However that being said, Dr. Leipzig is very thorough and I am very glad I didn't walk out. She is kind and patient but she'll ask very personal questions. All I can say is she does run behind schedule but plan for that because all that means is that she spends more time with her patients and explains everything thoroughly to you. I will most definitely be keeping her as my OBGYN, without question.
I really enjoy my visits with Dr. Leipzig. She is very informative, personable and easy to talk to. I think she's excellent.
Dr Leipzig is very personable and disarming. As a first time patient, she took considerable time to understand my history and any possible future family plans. Although I did wait in her office for a short while (about 10 minutes In Addition to a short wait time in the receptionist/waiting room) for this consultation, she offered a warm apology and all was good. I could see from the hubbub in the hallways that this is a busy practice. As initially stated, she is very personable and not only with me; I gleaned from an overheard conversation between her and an elderly patient that she is consistent in this regard. She explained Every Step of the process and exam, ensuring my comfort at all times. Just a a very pleasant person, who seems to care a great deal about women's health. She took time to explain 2 common non-threatening conditions that I apparently have. The staff was friendly (not always the case I have found in various doctor offices throughout the city). The nurse who took my blood for testing was professional as well as friendly when I confessed my uncomfortableness with needles (aughhh!). Overall, very satisfactory experience. I left feeling good about being a woman and taking care of myself. I guess that says it all right there.
Loved Dr. Leipzig - she was thorough, communicative, easy to talk to. Would highly recommend. Worth the wait time. Was losing hope I'd find a doctor who seemed as qualified as Dr. Leipzig who accepted Medicare. Thanks, ZocDoc.
I have been seeing this doctor for a few years and I really love her. She is kind and understanding and will discuss all of my worries with me.
You often have to wait a long time, but when you see her you know why....she spends an unbelievable amount of time listening and caring. Favorite doctor ever.
she was the most caring ob/gyn i've ever had! while i'm in nyc, she's gonna be my main doc.
I feel like I'm in the best hands, and that she approaches my health very holistically and kindly.
wonderful beside manner. very caring, warm, gentle. extremely responsive and patient with questions. she delivered my baby and it was a fantastic experience. would highly recommend...wait times, however, can be very long.
Dr. Leipzig is a fine doctor. I've seen her twice—once for an annual exam and once for a follow up appointment. My review here is a review of the office as a whole. Personally, I feel like this office lacks courtesy and professionalism. The process of taking my urine test consisted of one of the ladies at the front desk quickly mentioning on my way to the bathroom that I should urinate in one of the paper cups, put a sticker and write my name on it, and leave it next to the others. I walked into the bathroom to find three other paper cups lined up on the counter filled with other patients' urine. They were just sitting there, for others to enjoy the site of and free for anyone to tamper with. This didn't seem like the most secure and sanitary way to process urine samples. On my second appointment with Dr. Leipzig, I had a 9:45am appointment. I wasn't seen by the doctor until 11:45am. Yes, two hours late! At the one-hour mark I asked the lady at the front desk if it was a typical thing for the doctor to run this late. The lady responded, "Yes, that's how Dr. Leipzig works. She takes her time and she often runs late on appointments." Apparently, appointments rarely run on time here. My friend who recommended this doctor to me initially told me her appointment three months ago ran 2 1/2 hours late. No one, including the doctor, ever apologized or even acknowledged any tardiness. To me, running two hours late for scheduled appointment is completely unreasonable. For this reason alone, I will never go to this doctor again. If you do decide you want to visit this doctor, I suggest making an appointment for early morning, right when the office opens, in order to avoid waiting for hours. And, use ZocDoc to manage your appointments. One time I tried canceling an appointment and attempted to call the office 7 times—all attempts went straight to voicemail. Apparently, the front desk doesn't like to answer the phone either.
I have moved out of NYC, but make the hour+ trip back to see Dr. Leipzig. She is respectful, thoughtful, and patient, taking as much time as each person needs. No question or issue is too minor or silly. Given her attention to every individual, you should plan to wait...you can avoid this issue by picking her first or second appointment of the day. I have also called ahead to see how far off schedule she was (it may be an hour or more). In my opinion, this medical professional is worth the wait. Wish i could find a GP I liked as much.
She is knowledgeable the patient and about women's medical issues.
She is the most thorough gynecologist I've ever been too and her advice was taken and much appreciated.
She is an excellent doctor she knows her work . I would return if needed she is very caring and understanding to her patients needs.
Well informed, business like professional.
I highly recommend this doctor. She listens to you and she cares about what you have to say. She is not dismissive and takes her time .
Dr Leipzig is nice and experienced. But I waited more than 2.5 hours in the waiting room. The staff are always pretty rude on the phone.
I was grateful that she saw me on such short notice and amazed that despite squeezing me in, how much time she spent and her thoroughness and follow-through and caring. I plan on recommending her and continuing to be treated by Dr. Leipzig.
Very detailed and took her time with my issues. I highly recommend her. Thanks
The staff was rude, did not explain or apologize for the nearly hour wait until I was seen, and additional 30 minutes until I was examined. The Dr. was not particularly friendly or warm. She eventually opened up to the extent that I felt comfortable, but was very brusque.
Great bedside manner, very thorough, reassuring, kind. Long wait though.
Very attentive, considerate and listened to my concerns. Great doctor I highly recommend her.
She is wonderful I felt very comfortable around her
Dr. Leipzig was fantastic. She had answers to all of my questions and concerns and made me feel completely at ease. Best obgyn appointment I've ever had.
I'm confident that Dr. Leipzig may become the best gyno I ever have. She's incredibly thorough & investigative and she's got a great sense of humor. Plan on spending a fair amount of time in the waiting room and the doc's office - she takes the time to deliver quality care.
I saw Dr. Leipzig for the first time today, and I wish I could give her more than 5 stars!! She did a thorough medical/family history prior to the exam. During the exam she was patient and spoke with me the entire time about my health in general and gave me excellent advice and clearly took a personal interest. I have never written a review on ZocDoc,or any site for that matter, but I felt compelled to do so for Dr. Leipzig, so that other women can have a positive experience like I did. If a gynocologist appointment could be enjoyable then this was it .. lol .. :) The nurse, Patty, was wondeful as well.
Very professional and thorough.
I like that she was very professional.
Dr. Leipzig is a perfect combination of informative, direct and not too casual yet simultaneously not too formal, puts me at ease, is easy to approach and is great at translating medical jargon and situations to the average person.
I really like Dr. Leipzig - she was extremely thorough and personable. The staff was very courteous as well. The biggest drawback was the wait time, unfortunately. Perhaps it was just an extraordinarily busy day? My appointment for my annual was scheduled for 10:30 am, but I didn't leave until 1:20 pm.
There was a long wait while I was in the exam room, but once se was there she was very thorough and attentive.
She was great she made me very comfortable and i haven't felt that way in a long time I would defanetly recommend her:-)
Dr. Leipzig is incredibly nice, understanding and accommodating. So happy to find a good doc in the city.
Dr Leipzig delivered my twin boys last year, and she asked after them, wanted to see their pictures and also is very thorough about my overall health both physically and emotionally. I feel so lucky to have found such an amazing OB/Gyn after many, many others.
Dr. Leipzig was very competent and thorough. Her manner was very down to earth and reassuriing. She diagnosed my problem and explained the treatment options clearly.
I absolutly love Dr. Leipzig - she is so present when talking with patients, but I always expect a VERY long wait when going to her office. I suppose that's the cost of receiving personalized care?
Really made me feel at ease. Very helpful and really listened to what I had to say. Made extremely helpful suggestions. Would totally recommend. The time I waited was definitely worth it
Dr. Leipzig was smart, friendly, and super helpful! She took the time to get to know me and answered all of my questions. I highly recommend her!
Very good doctor, attentive and helpful, also very good at answering my questions.
It was a Monday and everyone was trying to be seen, so I waited about 2 hours, though I didn't mind that because I wasn't in a rush. I don't recommend Monday appointments...Dr. Leipzig was awesome. I'm definitely sticking with her.
She's great! I've never had a nicer, more caring doctor. She is knowledgable and reassuring.
Dr. Leipzig is terrific. She is very concerned and understanding. And she really made me feel comfortable. She is wonderful at follow-up. Her staff is professional and courteous. And her office is beautiful. I highly recommend Dr. Leipzig to every woman.
very professional. excellent bedside manner.
She was good and seemed like a good doctor, but the wait time was unreasonable, especially for an 8am appt. I waited over an hour.
She made my first visit very comfortable & easy!
Best first visit interviewing process I've ever experienced- clear and informative questions and answers. Respectful,knowledgeable. Makes good use of alternative medical resources.
Worth the wait. No question. Shari Leipzig is the best doctor I have seen in ever. Warm, kind, caring. Highly recommended.
Dr. Leipzig is very honest and easy to speak with. She makes you feel comfortable.
the test results were not given to me in a timely manner. as a MATTER OF FACT it took her four months to call me back with results of mamogram, I was revovering from mastectomy already!!!!!!!!!!!
This was my first visit to an OBGYN and I definitely made the right choice. I read all the reviews on here before choosing a doctor and all the comments were spot on. Based on someone's review I made the earliest possible appointment and still had to wait an hour. But it was worth the wait, Dr. Leipzig made me feel very comfortable, explained everything and took the time to sit down to talk with me. If you are looking for a great OBGYN in the NYC area she is definitely worth a visit.
I was so pleased with my visit. I found Dr. Leipzig to be caring and thorough. She asked a lot questions, explained what she was doing and why and gave me worthwhile suggestions. Dr. Leipzig spent a great deal of relaxed time with me. I waited a minimal amount of time to see her once I got to her office. The support staff was very pleasant, too.
Dr. Leipzig is always so patient and thorough. She makes it a point to ask about my general health and well-being, not just the specific thing ailing me at the moment. I appreciate the fact that she takes the time to think about how the little things could be affecting me and my body in a larger way. I always feel like I'm having a conversation with her about my health and not as though she's talking at me like many doctors do.
Dr. Leipzig was fantastic. She explains things in a way that's easy to understand and though I heard something I really didn't want to hear she was very calming and I left her office thinking everything would be ok.
I had a great experience. I really enjoyed meeting her and will return.
Nice, thorough, pleasant. but the wait is long, and the receptionists are not particularly pleasant.
Really nice pleasant doctor. The wait time was ridiculous. There was no one in the waiting room and i had to wait for 50minutes. Then i had to wait for another 15 minutes in the examination room. Popped away from work for what I thought would be 1 hour and spent 2 hours away in total!!! I would reccommend the doctor though.
Excellent she had a great bedside manner and truly listened to my questions and concerns
This has been the best OBGYN experience I've ever had. The doctor was very thorough and complete in her questions about my medical history and family's history. I asked a lot of questions and she spent a lot of time answering them and giving me the information I need in order to make some health and life decisions.
I booked my annual gyn exam with Dr. Leipzig based on the abundant positive reviews here on zocdoc and was not disappointed. She was super nice and very thorough. She really took her time to go over all of my medical history and current concerns, during which time I never felt rushed. Highly recommended!
I almost walked out of this appointment because I was in the waiting room for almost two hours. I had NEVER been so frustrated at a doctor's office in my life. Gynos have notoriously long wait times but this was ridiculous. About 2 seconds before I walked out, Dr. Leipzig came to see me, and when she saw how frustrated I was, she immediately took me in. Before we began the exam, she asked me a bunch of questions which I guess they do with all new patients, but some of the questions were strange and unnecessary. During the exam, I was very comfortable and she was very efficient. I would absolutely recommend her services, but the wait time is very inconvenient unless you have 3 hours to kill.
This was my first visit to Dr. Leipzig. She is extremely thorough in her questions and examination - I felt like she was interested in my health and keeping me healthy, which was a big change from my previous gynocologist. Her office staff was also very pleasant and helpful, which I thought was also a plus.
Highly recommended. Impressive as a human being.
Dr. Leipzig has been my gynecologist for 20 years or so, since she started working in this office. She stands out above every other physician that I have dealt with not only in compassion and competence in her field, but also in her willingness to go beyond what is required. When I had a situation that required specialized treatment, she went out of her way to ensure that I received the best possible care to resolve the problem. She listens, asks questions and gives advice that truly helps me to live a healthier life. Dr. Leipzig is a top-notch physician and I am sincerely grateful for the care that she has given me over the years.
She is an excellent Dr. She has been my Dr. for many years and normally has a very short waiting time. In the unusual circumstance that she is delayed, she is more than worth the wait.
When you have to pay yourself you want to shop around for a better price. But if price doesn't worry you - staff and doctor are very friendly and competent!
The wait was long, but it was worthwhile. I have been to many doctors who just rush through things and showed no sincere care, but she is different. She took time to learn about my health history and thoroughly checked me which assured me that she is giving the best service.
I liked this doctor very much. I did not like waiting for nearly 2 hours for my examination.
Dr. Leipzig was really great. I'm so happy that I found her!
She is an amazing doctor!! She was very understanding and sociable and knowledgable.
I went to Dr Shari Leipzig for the second opinion. It was a good experience and got my problem solved. I will schedule a surgery soon. She is very attentive and professional. She explained things in details with patience. I would recommend her :)
She was worth the wait - she is patient, kind and listens carefully. The office staff was a little hurried but she spent the proper time once I saw her.
Excellent doctor, although the wait time was unpleasant.
the cons are just a little more waiting. Other than that, she is worthy to try
My first visit with Dr. Shari L. was this past week and I must say despite the long trip its going to require I look forward to each visit. She is really great in all aspects. I was aware
I had to wait for 2 hours are 45 minutes before the doctor saw me - this is unacceptable and I would not recommend anyone who works on a schedule in this city to go see her.
The wait was very long. Besides that, however, this was an excellent doctor. She took more than the scheduled amount of time, was very attentive and concerned and in general went above and beyond the call of duty with the amount and quality of the information she gave me.
She was worth the wait. I felt so at ease and comfortable talking to her, she asked me many questions about my health and made sure I was given as much information as possible regarding my health going forward.
Like Space Mountain at Disney World, the wait is long, but the experience is worth it. If you have time to spare and want a doctor who is thorough, listens to your concerns, and advocates for her patients, I would highly recommend Dr. Leipzig!
Dr. Leipzig was SO fantastic. She sat with me for a good 20 minutes in her personal office, asking questions about my life and health history. She was so honest and caring; clearly an experienced and intelligent doctor!
Dr. Leipzig and her staff were great. They were very welcoming and professional. I felt comfortable and Dr. Leipzig was very informative and answered all my questions and was prompt with her follow up too.
I did wait for awhile but I would wait for hours to see Dr. Leipzig again. I have never been to an ob-gyn who was as kind and easy to talk to as Dr. Leipzig. She was very patient and spent a lot of time talking over everything i needed to hear. I highly highly recommend her.
Very thorough, kind, patient and knowledgeable. The wait time is a pain though. Try to get first time slot.
