Specialties

Dr. Donald A Leichter has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

He was our doctor during our daughters VSD repair

My daughter was diagnosed with a VSD at 2 weeks old. As you can imagine finding out about the VSD and the need for open hear surgery was very scary. Dr. Leichter walked my family through the entire process explaining everything thoroughly. He aided us in finding the best pediatric surgeon for the repair, which was done when my daughter was 2 months old.He always kept us positive and helped us understand that this was an easy repair. My daughter is 7 months now and is doing great. You would never know she had open heart surgery. She is now going to live a happy normal life and is now no different than any other child, which is amazing to believe. Medical science is just amazing. Dr. Leichter had his own VSD repaired as a child as did his son. Due to this we knew he understood what we were going through, which is why I think he is so excellent at what he does. He is also a big super hero fan.
