My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
My internal medicine private practice in Pearl River, New York has a strong focus on preventive care with extensive wellness counseling. The personalized healthcare program offered in my MDVIP-affiliated practice goes way beyond the services typically offered in concierge-type medical practices. In addition to focusing on prevention and wellness, I also manage acute and chronic medical conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obesity treatment. As a private doctor, I am available to my patients for urgent issues 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
My practice serves Rockland County, including New City, Piermont, Nyack, Montebello and Suffern and is also close to Montvale and Park Ridge in Bergen County, New Jersey. I also care for patients at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center and Nyack Hospital. I am the only female internist in Rockland County offering this comprehensive approach to outpatient and inpatient medical care.
My passion as an experienced primary care physician, with over 20 years in practice, is to get to know my patients extraordinarily well, so we “leave no stone unturned”. All of my patients have the ability to participate in their care, and together, we create a customized action plan to help them effectively attain their goals. I am thrilled to partner with my patients to help them enjoy the best health possible. I am happy to meet with you in my office to discuss your healthcare needs or the needs of a family member or friend.

I asked my pharmacist many years ago to recommend a MD that he knew (who better to know them all). I was NEVER disappointed in my decision to follow his recommendation. Dr. Leder has ALWAYS taken her time to sit and talk, ask and answer questions and communicated in terms that I could fully understand. This is medical care that you only use to see 50 years ago when Doctors became Doctors… See more
I have been a patient with Dr. Leder for over ten years. I have never had my health in a better condition than since I started to see Dr. Leder. She is what I consider to be the real deal, a true doctor. Dr. Leder cares so much more for her patients than what I hear from colleagues and friends who go to the ten minute and you're out offices.
Dr. Leder takes a genuine, sincere… See more
I've been lucky--or careful--to have good, concerned primary care doctors. None were as good as Michelle Leder. I joined MDVIP primarily because I wanted to keep her as my primary care doctor. I never thought getting older would affect me; none of us do; but it has. I drink too much. Michelle Leder is as good for me as my psychologist; I can't imagine that any other medical… See more
Dr. Leder is not only incredibly knowledgeable and impressively well informed, she is also caring and an active listener! I am approaching 70! This used to be a scary # to me, but Dr. Leder makes me feel less fearful and vulnerable about getting older. I know, in my heart, that she will be there for me as I enter this chapter. She always instills confidence in her patients. She, truly, loves… See more
I am forever grateful to Dr. Leder for inspiring me to stay ahead of all the things that I have been subconsciously worried about most of my life due to my family history.
For this alone, the MDVIP Wellness Program and having my Annual Wellness Visit with Dr. Leder helps me make sure that I am investing the time I know that I need to stay in front of everything that I want to manage...… See more
My husband suffered a major heart event. We were dealing with two different cardiac teams: the hospital team that performed the surgeries and our own private cardiologists. Dr. Leder's visits to closely monitor his condition while he was in CCU for a week, not only reassured him but also reassured me that everything was being handled properly by all the cardiologists. Dr. Leder answered… See more
Dr. Leder has been my family doctor for several years. The only reason that I signed up with MDVIP was because of her dedication and excellence. She is thorough, knowledgable and kind. Every question you may have is answered in a courteous and timely manner. You are never rushed from her office as is the case in almost all physicians in and around the area.
I have been with Dr. Leder for over ten years now. She is the most caring, trusted doctor that I see regularly. She organizes the feedback from my specialists and all of my medications, making sure no errors are made, and is always on top of everything.
I met Dr. Leder in January of 2006, after suffering for six years with what I thought were peri-menopause symptoms. When a raspy voice presented itself, I knew there was something else amiss and suspected a thyroid issue instead, according to my own research. I saw an announcement for a new physician in town and decided to try a new physician for the new year. Dr. Leder was engaging and… See more
