Dr. Jennifer Leiser is cheerful, funny, and extremely approachable. She is very easy to talk to about even embarrassing problems, and is always happy to answer questions. Her easy-going friendliness and wisdom has made her a favorite with our whole family.

July 23, 2014

Dr Leiser spent a good amountl of time with me and listened to my concerns. She gave me some easy instructions about how to take care of a current issue. I appreciated her help.

June 08, 2014

The care provider was helpful to me.

June 06, 2014

I can't say enough good about Dr. Leiser. She is terrific

May 31, 2014

I felt that the visit covered everything that I needed to discuss, in a sensitive manner.

May 11, 2014

The dr spent time with me answering my questions and making sure I was comfortable with each procedure. She seems to be caring and compassionate with her patients.

April 27, 2014

She listened to all my concerns, which were rather numerous, I was just left wondering if I actually got an annual physical exam, which is what I had asked for the appointment for but things I would have thought would be checked for a physical weren't and I wasn't told to make another appointment if this was just a consultation

April 21, 2014

helped me understand what was happening, validated my concerns

April 07, 2014

Dr Leiser spent much time gathering information about my health history and explaining to me the possible course to take regarding each of my concerns.

April 06, 2014

Dr L is a very caring provider!

April 04, 2014

I can't say enough good about Dr. Leiser. The time spent with me was unhurried, and she had ready, sensible responses to my questions. Her communication skills and information imparted is outstanding; my previous doctor seldom explained things in any detail. Dr. Leiser has given me a great deal of motivation to work on my diabetes. Her concern is palatable.

March 19, 2014

If you can find more physicians like Dr Leiser, HIRE THEM.

February 12, 2014

I think the doctors and the physician assistants and the nurses and the nurse assistants are very very excellent! I will recommend the expertise to others!

February 10, 2014

We had a bit of anxiety before the visit with Dr. Leiser, and she was very kind and professional while addressing our concerns.

January 29, 2014

The care provider seemed preoccupied. Though she listened and answered our questions, she gave us the impression that she had other concerns that were more important.

December 08, 2013

Dr. Jennifer Leiser is a very good doctor. I enjoy her as a friend and a professional.

December 07, 2013

As always, Dr. Leiser was communicative, and gave excellent treatment and advice

October 07, 2013

Excellent

September 04, 2013

I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Leiser. She is friendly, concerned about my condition, and gave me instructions on what I should do. Her communication skills and knowledge are excellent, and her instructions give me confidence in her and what I am to do. I'm sure my previous doctor was competent, but he communicated very little about my medical problems, and didn't give much advice.

August 26, 2013

Dr. Leiser is a great doctor in every way

August 16, 2013

I have come up with a few medical issues all at the same time, Dr. Leiser is helping me work through each of them, and I appreciate her plan to identify the problems.

August 12, 2013

I really like Dr Leiser, she is very approachable and down-to-earth. She explains current guidelines and recommendations.

June 24, 2013

Very pleasant experience with Doctor Leiser!

June 24, 2013

Doctor leiser was very rude. I was trying to find to get help to find out about seeing a specialist since I was in so much pain she said no they would just tell you the same thing I am telling you

June 23, 2013

Dr. Leiser is tops in my book. I recommended her to my wife now she thinks Dr. Leiser is tops too

June 04, 2013

Both Dr. Leiser and her assistant were very helpful and explained and listened

May 27, 2013

Excellent care from Nurse and Physician

April 02, 2013

Has always been kind and considerate and has always kept me well infomed as to any needs or concerns.

April 01, 2013

was told she recommended physical therapy, yet I was not set up with this.

February 05, 2013

She is the best Dr. I have had.

January 28, 2013

The doctor did not examine me other than to comment that it looked like I had been scratching (my rash). She didn't try to look at my shoulder -- she just said, "I can't refill any prescriptions. You have to go to the primary for that." The feeling was that she didn't want to waste her time.

January 22, 2013

Not applicable - my visit was for lab work

January 17, 2013

The care provider discussed all my health problems efficiently and carefully with me.

January 14, 2013

Nice job.

December 09, 2012

I greatly appreciate Dr. Leiser's ability and skill in talking with me in ways that encourage me to follow her recommendations. When she first told me that I needed to take at least a week off from work to heal from my concussion I didn't see how I could possibly do this. However, by the end of my visit I was considering the possibility and actually took 1.5 weeks off.

November 20, 2012

My visit was a very simple one - some of these particular questions do not really pertain to the simplicity of it - basically, I was there to get a shingles vaccine; having said that, my provider was excellent in all capacities.

October 30, 2012

I was impressed that Dr. Leiser attended to all of my preventive and annual health care needs in this visit when I had only scheduled an appointment at her request to review my medications. Although this took longer than I had expected for the appointment, I appreciated taking care of all these needs at this time so that I didn't need to reschedule.

October 24, 2012

I am interested in finding a provider that would help me to resolve my medical problems.

August 27, 2012

Dr. Leiser is a wonderful provider. She is always very friendly and helps me with any concerns I have.

July 02, 2012

I have seen Dr. Leiser for several years. She is exellent. I will keep her as my Dr for as long as I can.

June 11, 2012

Dr. Leiser is my doctor for a reason. She is an exceptional health care professional. She will be my Primary care doctor as long as she is available.

June 02, 2012

very compassionate, professional andrespect. thank you

May 06, 2012

Dr Leiser was excellent and extreley friendly I was extremely pleased with her care

April 20, 2012

Have recommended the clinic and Doc Leiser several times and will continue to do so.

April 06, 2012

Dr. Leiser is awesome. I always feel she has a genuine concern for me and always has time to discuss my concerns and explain anything I need to know. She always answers my questions.

March 29, 2012

Dr. Leiser was wonderful. This was my first visit with her, she spent time listening to my concerns and addressed them professionally. I am happy to have her as my primary care physician.

March 16, 2012

Doctor was obviously rushed by backlog but still was thorough but there wasn't much offered regarding what to do to expedite recovery other than scheduling a follow-up Physical Therapy session a week later.

February 22, 2012

Nothing bad... Just prefer my usual doctor.
