    MADSEN HEALTH CENTER

    Dr. Leiser is not my primary care provider. However, she was supervising a new resident physician. She came into the room to explain paperwork and processes. While there for a primary care provider post surgery follow up visit, Dr Leiser told me the results of my pathology report and gave vague information regarding the details of the report. It left me with a lot of questions prior to me having heard from the surgeon (still waiting on him too).

    The doctor was calm and thoughtful and kind. She was clear with me and I felt confident in the course of treatment she recommended. You cant ask for better than that from a doctors visit.

    SUGAR HOUSE HEALTH CENTER

    Always great. Been her patient for about 30 years. But Dr. Leiser is retiring so I won't have her to rely on any longer.
