I was very grateful to have Dr. Michael Leff of Center For Alternative Medicine’s, wisdom and positive attitude helping me during my pregnancy giving me prenatal care. When I could not seem to get a minute of relief from heartburn, Dr. Leff immediately provided me with a supplement that had me heartburn free for the remainder of my pregnancy. At the end of my term, I was suffering from Gestational Hypertension and Dr. Leff was able to help me get some relief from the swelling when it seemed to be at its worst. Every time I visit with Dr. Leff is always a wonderful healing experience in an atmosphere that is most relaxing and full of “good feeling” energy; exactly what you want when pregnant. I would recommend Dr. Leff and staff to anyone looking for a bountiful well being experience.
I am 37 years old. Two years ago my husband and I began trying to get pregnant. I will admit we were one of the ‘lucky one’s’ in that we got pregnant on the first try. Unfortunately, we lost that baby at 13 weeks and another baby at 6.5 weeks. I was, needless to say, distraught. If I were honest with myself, I probably was not taking the best care of myself and I was probably not the best home for a baby to develop in for 10 months at that time. SO…I called Dr. Leff. Whenever something is off in my life I call Dr. Leff. I went in for some of his treatments (overall assessment, adjustments the ever-so-fun needles) and got on a better track of total well being. March 2009 I got pregnanct…YAH!!! My husband and I were beyond elated. Of course, we were nervous though having lost two other babies. But, I stayed focused on being positive and stayed in the ‘Dr. Leff program.’ At about 8 weeks the nausea and every othey pregnancy symptom you can imagaine hit me (heartburn, dissyness, headaches, leg/foot cramps, disgust over food and all smells…I could go on and on). I literally had every symptom in the book but the worst was my nauseau. It was unbearable. But, I was so excited about being pregnant that I felt like I should be grateful and just dealt with it. At that time, I saw Dr. Leff about every 4 weeks. So, in one of my maintance visits to Dr. Leff I described all my ailments and within 10 minutes I was nauseau-free for the first time in weeks. It was amazing. I left his office that day with all sorts of suggestions, herbs and opintments to help. I swear he was a miracle worker. He took such care with me and my specific situation…knowing how delicate my body and emotions were at that time. Nothing and no one can replace my Dr. Leff. Oh and my little one, Dillon, he’s 10 months now (such an amazing journey and blessing) and before you know it we’ll be working on babay #2 soon!

I have been seeing Dr. Leff for 2 years now for a chronic, painful, debilitating disease. He has provided me with ongoing, substantial relief from pain and we are working towards putting the disease into remission. Dr Leff is a phenomenal doctor due to his extensive training in multiple disciplines and many years of experience, but one of the things that really sets him apart is his ability to listen. His mind hears every word you say and he will often make a jump to something you hadn’t even thought about because you made an off-the-cuff comment. I consider myself lucky and blessed to have found Dr Leff.

I have been a patient of Dr. Leff for over 2 years. I have seen Dr. Leff for multiple issues ranging from allergies, dislocated shoulders to recovery from a serious knee surgery. He has provided me with pain relief that I never believed I would have again after my injuries. Due to Dr. Leff’s care, I’m able to live a VERY active lifestyle pain free and I would go as far as stating that due to his care I have avoided additional injury. Dr. Leff has also treated several members of my family and they all have gotten relief from him that other doctors could not provide. In the medical profession it is a rare quality for a doctor to take a call from a patient after hours much less actually see the patient but Dr. Leff has provided that service to myself and my family, that is the type of care sets Dr. Leff apart from other doctors. I rely on Michael’s care to continue my active lifestyle and I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Leff to anyone looking for a doctor to provide the utmost quality medical care.

I have been a client/patient of Dr. Leff since 2008. In addition to being most positive, supportive, and encouraging, he is a most knowledgeable and dedicated medical professional. I was referred to Dr. Leff by one of the parents of a student to whom I provided professional educational consulting services. My back problem originated over 40 years ago from playing college football at Duke University. Dr. Leff methodically addressed the tension-related symptoms, alleviated pressure on the problem area discs, and successfully eliminated pain with just a few acupuncture treatments. I have not had a back-related injury or setback for over 2 1/2 years. In addition, blood pressure, blood sugar, and irregular heartbeat problems have all been treated successfully as well. Continual sessions (1-2 times per month) with Dr. Leff have proven to be most cost effective because I discovered that conventional (non-alternative) visits to my regular doctor in the past have lead, and would only lead, to more costly …

Dr. Leff is the most amazing diagnostician I have ever encountered. When I came to him, I was unable to digest food properly and was at wit’s end – no one had been able to help me. Through a variety of therapies and an incredible amount of patience, he has changed my life. Today I can eat whatever I want. Dr. Leff has helped me with other issues large and small, making my life exponentially better.

For the LUV of LEFF This guy is amazing. Started seeing Dr Leff for the treatment of migraines. He has not only helped ease my migraines through acupuncture and adjustments, but he has also helped with my overall well-being. Dr Leff takes the time to get to know his patients on a personal level. I have never felt rushed in his care, nor have I ever had the tremendous wait times so familiar at other doctor’s offices…and BONUS…his treatments really WORK! Thanks Dr Leff, you are quite simply, THE BEST!

I would reccomend this place! I was going to see my regular doctor because I thought I had broken my toe. I was urged to see Dr. Leff first and he was able to diagnose that it was NOT broken and treat it with acupuncture. There was almost instant relief from teh pressure! It healed in just a few days! Thanks Dr. Leff!!

Have been treated by Dr Leff for about a year … No other doctor has taken the time to get to know me or understand what I needed. I’ve had migraines for over 20 years and he is the first doctor who has actually made them better and no prescriptions … He has also helped with nutrition and chiropractic treatments … It’s amazing everything he can do!

I am a 35 year old male who suffered a neck and back injury approximately four years ago. Since that time, I have experienced significant pain and numbness in my neck, back, and right arm. An MRI revealed damage to some of the discs in my neck and upper back. My doctor prescribed painkillers, anti-inflammatory drugs, and physical therapy. However, after several months of these “western” treatments, I had no improvement. I then met with an orthopedic surgeon who recommended that I receive injections in my neck, and perhaps a spinal fusion surgery- if the cortisone failed to provide relief. I did not want to go down this road, so I explored several forms of alternative medicine, including several acupuncturists and chiropractors. Despite all of these efforts, I still experienced severe debilitating pain in my neck and back. Finally, after dealing with this issue for approximately four years, I found Dr. Michael Leff. Dr. Leff evaluated my medical records and conducted a physical examination, after which he determined that much of my pain was likely due to a problem with my upper ribs, not a disc herniation. After just two visits to Dr. Leff, wherein he treated me with acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments, the majority of my pain subsided. It has now been over six months since Dr. Leff treated my neck/back, and I have not felt better in four years. I am enjoying a life that is far more pain-free than it has been in a long time. I do not hesitate to recommend my family and friends to Dr. Leff.
“I can’t believe it Dr. Leff! When you manipulated my big toe last week you eliminating pain there that has been badgering me for a year! It is fantastic – does not hurt any more…wow! Thank you so much. I’ll come back again in a few weeks but at the moment this foot is feeling great and way better that it has for a long time!”
Thanks so much, you are awesome. I have never met a Dr. who is so caring. Most want you in and out, and really don’t do anything. You are definitely a Godsend…. thanks so much for your help.

I’ve never been to a doctor before who was able to listen, diagnose and treat me on the same day. This process usually takes weeks to months! You fixed me on the first visit. Thank you!!
Thank you Dr. Leff. You always get the job done. That’s why I send everyone I know over to you. Thanks again!!
You helped me with a problem a few years ago. I’m once again having a problem that no one else has been able to fix. I came back to see my Jewish Doctor. I needed another miracle. You’re like my Jesus!!
Dear Dr. Leff (Obi Wan),
This thank you is so much later than I would have liked but there will be many more to come as we truly cannot express just how thankful we are to you. Your Care and Compassion that you have towards your patients goes above the top x1000 (times a thousand….) There are very few people in this world that are gifts to the rest of us… And, without saying, the world is a much better place with you in it… We were lost souls in a sinking ship when we met you… We were floundering, breathless, and at the end of our rope. Thank you for being a gift to mankind and our life preserver when we needed it most… We look forward to seeing you soon. And of course…. May the Force be with You!
