I wish there were more than 5 stars to give! Dr Leipziger is a true professional, kind and understanding. He has helped me with an issue that I have struggled with for over 30 years. If you are looking for the best of the best, he is your answer.
The best doctor of all. Skillful, kind, good listener. He did my breast augmentation and the results are amazing! I couldn’t be more pleased. He is the only choice if you are looking for perfection. Dr. Leipziger will be with you in your journey. He really cares.
It doesn’t get better! If you are looking for the best look no further. Everything he said he would do was done to perfection. We discussed all and he sure delivered. The results are superb and so very natural.
After my consultation with Dr. Leipziger I knew immediately he is the surgeon I’d trust [implicitly]. His talent and artistic abilities gave me spectacular results. His focus was always 100% on me. His precision and professional [manner] always gave me great comfort.
I’ve been seeing him a little over a year for Botox and filler injections. I have never felt or looked better, and the changes is so subtle. He treats your face like a canvas and his art is superb. He’s patient, approachable and professional. I would absolutely recommend.
Dr. Leipziger is a skilled physician whose work is that of a fine artist. Not only do people mistake me for a woman 20 years younger, they never suspect I had plastic surgery. Amazing!
