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. 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

from Mary in AZ March 13, 2020 for Robert B. Leff, MD, FACP

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

Some time recent, i was at my summer home in Maine when i developed what could have possibly been the onset of shingles.
A local doc was not helpful.
I called Dr. Leff's office, back in Arizona.
He was on vacation in Europe.

Within an hour, he had phoned in the… See more

from James K in AZ March 12, 2020 for Robert B. Leff, MD, FACP

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.

from Raymond Bernal in AZ March 12, 2020 for Robert B. Leff, MD, FACP

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

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!

from Cynthia in AZ March 22, 2018 for Robert B. Leff, MD, FACP

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
