Dr. Leff and his staff are amazing, when I need medical advice or attention I am seen and heard . Words cannot express my gratitude and thanks to Dr. Leff but I can try by saying I get supportive,,,efficient , reassuring, and always caring service and care.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Leff
Dr. Robert Leff has been my primary care physician for years prior to MDVIP and over the last several years with MDVIP. He is, without a doubt, the most professional and compassionate physician. His health screenings and explanations of all aspects of the results of tests are detailed, informative, and complete.
He is personable and manifests sincere concern for all phases of my health.… See more
My wife was having a shortness of breath and couldn't walk across the room without having to kneel down. She had blood drawn on Friday and we prepared for results the following week. Saturday morning at 0630 Dr Robert Leff called and said get her to the ER now. He detected persistent animia and dangerous bloodwork levels. He visited her in the hospital and recommended B-12 shots which… See more
Fourteen years ago, Dr. Leff ordered an MRI for me. I had no symptoms other than a back ache. The result was kidney cancer which, because it was found very early, was removed with a good outcome. When my husband was dying in the hospital, Dr. Leff made himself available to me, my son, and the hospital doctor for direction and advice. I have complete confidence in his abilities and experience.… See more
My husband has been a patient of Dr. Leff's for several years. Dr. Leff continues to amaze us by his thorough knowledge of his patient, the detailed notes he keeps and his thorough follow-thru with all medical issues. When I accompany my husband to his appointments (because husbands never ask the right questions), Dr. Leff follows up on all items. The notes he takes are far superior… See more

I emailed photos of the lesions along with the symptoms to his office who tracked him down.

Dr. Robert Leff is always there for me, whether in a hospital, rehab center, or after hours. He has called my other specialists numerous times to solve problems, etc. He has gone above and beyond the “call of duty” many times. There’s no one like you, Doc Leff. Thank you.
As a relatively healthy 80 year old, I do not require much treatment for chronic conditions. However, I occasionally have Questions or require a medication. Dr. Leff is always available and he responds very quickly. His excellent service makes being a MDVIP member worthwhile.Thank you Dr. Leff!
Dr. Leff was our Tucson internist in the 1980's. We moved out of state for 25 years and are now back in Tucson and once again he is our internist. We are incredibly thankful he continues to oversee our health care. He has always been a thorough, kind doctor and most importantly, Dr. Leff is a wonderful listener.
Thank you Dr. Leff for all you do for us and I hope you continue to… See more
