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.

Dr. Leder LISTENS and gives you as much time as you need. She is an amazing diagnostitian and I have confidence in her judgement
Dr. Leder took me into her practice when I was unable to get satisfactory attention to my medical problems, locally. Between the efficiency of Dr. Leder, her staff, and the coordination of services provided by Ms. Lorrie Middleton of MDVIP, headquarters, my overall experience has been 5 out of 5 and I look forward to a continuing relationship.
Dear Dr. Leder,
I realized from being ill, one, or maybe the most important factor in decreasing one's suffering is knowing that someone cares about what happens to you despite the outcome. This is especially true for me. Even during our short association there have been several times when your empathy and listening have helped me greatly.
You should let me know if you don… See more

At the beginning she was calling me almost every day to see how I was doing. Dr. Leder has been my sounding board, advisor, and friend throughout this experience. I wouldn't wish what I am going through on anyone, but my… See more
