My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I believe the essence of primary care medicine is building relationships with patients and their families based on trust, open communication and a mutual commitment to a healthy lifestyle. I aim to partner with my patients to understand and solve their medical issues, and more importantly, to prevent problems through early interventions and wellness counseling.

Dr. Leff has been my physician for 30 plus years and after joining MDVIP our relationship improved substantially, not that it was bad but now we have more time and availability for appointments and discussions. I also don't feel that it is an imposition to call him for emergencies or just advice.

I feel like Dr. Leff is a member of my family and tries to always make our visits comfortable and knowledgeable. I think of his staff in the same way.

from leo in AZ February 14, 2015 for Robert B. Leff, MD, FACP

I had a scheduled visit wit Dr. Robert Leff for a checkup on fractured ribs. I noted in passing I had a pain in my upper chest. He immediately scheduled me for an appointment with a cardiologist. Within hours I had an angioplasty. His quick action saved my life. Over the years, he has manifested a professional demeanor combined with a genuine concern for my health and welfare.
