Specialties

Dr. Rhoda F Leichter has the following 1 specialty

  • Vascular Surgery

    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Small medical situation

When you look at the ability and successes of Dr. Leichter, she is way beyond just a small bump on an ankle. Regardless she treated me as if I were her most needed patient. She listened, she followed up, she advised. And her staff was point on from my initial call for an appointment to a request for records being forwarded to my prime doctor. Excelent care!

Skill + Compassion = Miracle

Dr. Leichter has performed six procedures on me. That I am writing this review is a testament to both her skill and her dedication. One of the procedures was a marathon to correct a vascular emergency that should have been, and very nearly was, fatal. You tend to have a high opinion of someone who quite literally saved your life. She did it for me TWICE! That's right, two life-threatening vascular emergencies, and she saved me both times! Is it any wonder that my entire family believes that the sun rises on her East shoulder and sets on her West? I hope that you never need her services, but if you do, it would be difficult to find better. The staff at University Vascular are efficient and courteous. Sometimes you need to wait a few minutes, as the office works in emergency patients. Th trade-off is that when you are the emergency, the other patients understand. In the end, it all evens out. Over the past ten years I have required 18 vascular procedures, many performed at UCLA by some of their best, including Peter Lawrence and Sam Ahn. Given the choice, I'd go with Dr. Leichter any day of the week.
