29/06/14 1 1 1 1 DO NOT go to this place for a 3D Ultra Sound. My experience was awful. When I first walked in I asked to use the washroom while my husband sat in the waiting room. As soon as I walked out of the washroom I see this women in a dark room waving her hand for me to come in, it was really weird and creepy. I turned around, went back to the room and asked her "are you asking me to come in?" and she replied "yes". So I went back to the waiting room and told my husband to come with me as the women is waiting for us inside. Once I got inside she asked me to lay on the bed and lift my shirt up. She never bothered introducing herself nor telling us her credentials. She kept shaking my stomach really hard to wake up the baby. I was very disappointed how the TV monitor was behind my head instead of across the room for my comfort. When she was finished, she told us to leave the room while she works on the DVD's. I finally asked her what her name was and she told me.  Respond

03/05/14 5 5 5 5 Following an intensive year of cancer treatment, I gratefully found my way to Dr. Ledermans office where I was welcomed, supported and cared for. Dr. Lederman thoughtfully prepared a manageable and comprehensive plan for my cared. I received vitamin-mineral infusions intravenously, dietary guidance, emotional support and collaborated goal setting. Through my regular visits, I was consistently heard and encouraged. Dr. Ledermans kind attention, positive outlook and knowledge, are exactly what I need to heal with awareness. I am both excited and hopeful about my progress and return to vibrant health. Dr. Lederman and his wonderful staff are very much a part of this process. Thank you Dr. Lederman!  Respond

26/03/14 5 4 5 5 I am very pleased with the decision to see Dr Lederman. He has been helpful and supportive and finally I am achieving my health goals after years of being stuck and frustrated and receiving no support elsewhere. I am now healthier, stronger and have more energy than I've had in many years. Dr Lederman has a very quiet demeanour but is very passionate about helping people achieve their health, wellness goals. I have found him to be attentive during appointments and have never felt rushed in and out the door, which is important to me.  Respond

06/03/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Lederman is a caring, compassionate and knowlegeable doctor. Dr. Lederman is also generous of spirit. I started seeing Dr. Lederman over a month ago to deal with a debilitating pain issue in my right shoulder and ribs and from which I suffered for over ten years. Dr. Lederman treated me with prolotherapy and after my initial treatment, I felt immensely improved; after three more treatments, I am now pain-free. Dr. Lederman showed patience, interest and kindness when he asked about my history and he has given me many tips to help myself more than I have in the past. I would recommend Dr. Lederman without hesitation for any mind/body issues. I myself will return to Dr. Lederman with any medical issues which may arise in the future. I am very grateful to Dr. Lederman and wish to say to him, thank you so much for helping me.  Respond

05/03/14 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Lederman for the past two months now. I have nothing but praise and positive things to say about him and his clinic! He is not only professional and knowledgeable, but also, he listens and he CARES! I am never rushed. He is always on time. And he spends the time with me that I feel is necessary to express my concerns. Equally as important, of course, is that his treatment WORKS!! I have suffered from terrible tennis elbow (both elbows!), for several months and nothing worked to stop the pain (I tried Advil, acupuncture, and even a cortisone shot) - it got so bad I couldn't even pick up my kids. I saw Dr. Lederman and he suggested I do Prolotherapy. Amazingly, within two sessions, I began to feel the tremendous positive effects. Without a doubt, I credit Dr. Lederman's light touch treatment with my new found mobility and pain free daily routine. I urge anyone reading this review to call him. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!  Respond

30/01/14 4 3 2 3 I saw Dr. Lederman 10 times in 2010 regarding a host of as he put it 'layered problems' which I felt he refused to deal with holistically all together, it seemed for financial reasons, wanting separate appointments for each question or area. The main one was GI, the secondary were gynaecological and the third was muscular-skeletal. He seemed knowledgable and had some good routes to follow, but I felt really that he was trying to do as little as possible in each appointment. In the end, my GI problems were diagnosed, and began a course of treatment, but I felt I had to 'wait this out' in order to have my other issues addressed, which was frustrating, and I have since not experienced with other NDs. He eventually did a round of prolo for my shoulders, which helped quite a bit, but also was very expensive (1000$plus), and I felt, maybe should not have been the first line of treatment. I never felt comfortable in his office, and was always waited a long time to be helped so little.  Respond

03/12/13 4 4 5 5 Dr. Lederman is a great family naturopath. Our three kids, ages 4 and under, went to see him and they all loved him. He helped my husband and I to go from feeling a 4 to a 10 in just over a month! He helped us get our energy levels up and our digestive system working again, as well as getting off antihistamines for the first time in years. His treatments are simple and easy to follow and the results so fast that it makes me wish we'd gone to him sooner.

26/07/13 5 4 5 5 I went to see Dr. Lederman in May 2013 as I was feeling really tired & sluggish all the time. After 2 months, I feel fantastic. My energy level is better than it's every been and I am much healthier overall. I have lost weight on his program and my digestion is back to normal. When I first went to see him, I suffered from abdominal bloating & sugar/carb cravings all the time. Now, I no longer have any abdominal bloating and the sugar/carb cravings, while still there, are much less. Dr. Lederman has been very helpful with his suggestions, sharing success stories and encouraging me to stay on track even when life's unexpected moments happen. Thank you, Dr. Lederman & your great staff!  Respond

09/07/13 5 4 5 4 I had a very confusing heart issue that nobody was able to identify. Other doctors were so content to just let me wait another month to see if it got better. Meanwhile, I was getting worse and feeling terrible. What I liked about dr Lederman's approach is that he was not satisfied with average level of health. He worked with me until I felt excellent. He was the only doctor that expected excellence. I live a healthy life and so it is nice to have a doctor expect the same level if health as I am used to. Overall, Dr Lederman was great. And now, I feel great as well. Well worth the time and expense.  Respond

28/05/13 5 5 5 5 In this age of confusion, Dr. Leaderman was able to teach me how to loose weight (70lbs) and change my lifestyle. I could not done it without him! It was like going to see a friend a couple times a week to chat about health and get advice. Very helpful, and extremely friendly. He really was on my side and listened to every question and concern, and would then explain in detail ( I like detail ) how the whole process works. Thank you so much! I sound like one of those ppl writing a review...but here I am writing a review! He changed my life by giving me the skills and support to do it by myself! It was a lot of work but he was with me every step of the way.

20/05/13 5 5 5 5 In just 29 days, with absolutely ZERO cravings and NO hunger, I lost 31.6 lbs with Dr Lederman's HCG diet program. While that is wonderful, the part that I am most excited about is that my blood pressure went from 165/125 to 110/80, and within the first 11 days my resting pulse returned to 60 bpm from over 100 bpm, and I no longer had heartburn, bloating, or swollen ankles and calves so I was able to stop wearing diabetic socks. Dr Lederman is a caring, non-judgemental individual, who incidentally, questioned me about some of the lab results that my family doctor never touched on. I cannot recommend Dr Lederman or his staff highly enough. I still have 78 lbs to go to reach my goal and I can see the weight falling off right before my eyes. How wonderful to feel terrific and have hope restored! For more on my journey, you may visit http://www.poshtodd.com/2013/05/posh-todd-loses-316-...  Respond

15/05/13 5 4 5 5 I had originally tried Dr. Bernstein's weight loss treatment and found it to be a very difficult diet. After spending all that money, I didn't lose any weight. I then went to Dr. Lederman and tried the HCG treatment and have lost a total of 30 lbs. I feel more confident in my skin and am not tired anymore. I find it easier to make healthy food choices and am now able to control my cravings and binge eating habits.  Respond

28/02/13 5 5 5 5 I have seen Dr. Lederman for 4 sessions of HCG. Both in early 2012, and now just finishing my last round in 2013. I am now 60lbs lighter and feel so much better in my own skin. He has been very encouraging and always makes sure that my comfort is the top priority. When I have concerns he always addresses them with realistic solutions. He has applauded me through my successes and encouraged me through the difficult weeks. For anyone out there that is overweight and looking for a solution, Dr. Lederman's program is something you should definitely consider.  Respond

21/01/13 5 4 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr Ledermans since March 2012 and since then I have lost 120lbs, I can't say enough good things about the Dr and his staff. I have done a lot of other programs and the support that I get from Dr Lederman is awesome. I have never felt pressured to buy anything or do some other treatment, when I wanted to go on maintenance the Dr was behind me 100%, when I wanted to extend maintenance cause I wasn't ready, again Dr Lederman was behind me 100%. I would say to those on here who "think" they're doctors...at least I assume they have a medical degree as they are dishing medical advice as to what's safe and what isn't...maybe you should do some research before spouting an opinion, my family MD and my specialist OBGYN (that would someone who specializes in hormones) approved my decision to do HCG. My life has been changed forever..in the best way possible. Thanks Dr Lederman.  Respond

28/06/12 5 4 5 5 I went to see Dr Lederman on March 13th 2012, 50 pounds over weight and in constant pain from a chronic shoulder issue. I was a very unhappy person who was in some form of pain 24 hours a day and turned to food to compensate. Ater taking the time to evaluate my situation we started with the HCG weight loss program and after my third visit we added Prolotherapy for my shoulder pain. After my first Prolotherapy session I was unsure if I would find any relief. During my next clinic visit I was suprised to find out that I would not be having my second Prolotherapy session. Dr Lederman knew that there was no need to have the sessions that close together. After my fifth session I was done with Prolotherapy and completely pain free. I can now say, on June 27th, less than 4 months after starting to see Dr Lederman that I have reached my weight loss goal and am now down under 200 pounds and as I mentioned earlier completely pain free for the first time in more than 5 years. Thanks Dr Lederman  Respond

26/06/12 3 2 1 1 Seeing Dr. Lederman was the worst decision of my life. I received Mesotherapy from Dr. Lederman two years ago. Before the third treatment I was concerned that there was some hard tissue left from the last treatment but he dismissed it and went along with the third treatment- making it worse. I was left with skin discolouration and the fat was taken out unevenly. I now have to go to a plastic surgeon to have it fixed. There is no guarantee that it will get any better. I tried to get my money back from Lederman and he wouldn’t give me anything. When I asked for a refund he was extremely rude to me. DON’T GO, he did not let me know of the risk involved in the scars. He made it seem like there was no risk involved when in fact this has made me look disfigured and worse than before. At all my appointments he also tried to sell me on all sorts of products.  Respond

For once I felt like I was not just a number! Can't say enough...highly recommended!  Respond

21/04/12 5 5 5 5 For many years I suffered tremendous leg pain, walking was difficult, it was not till I met Dr. Lederman that my life totally changed for the better. Through Prolo Therapy and Dr. Lederman’s care I now walk pain free. My weight has always been an issue nothing ever worked so with Dr. Lederman’s guidance and support I went through the HCG program and watched the pounds disappear without once feeling hungry. It was very exciting to drop dress sizes. I now truly feel alive and well for the first time in years. I will continue to see Dr. Lederman as he offers me amazing results, support and care. I respect his knowledge, skills and non-pressured manner. I have never felt so good, full of energy and well-being.

22/07/11 3 2 2 2 this doctor does not deserve the title "doctor". he is there to make money off of people's health concerns and that is all. he endorses unhealthy programs for weight loss (getting patients to eat 800 calories a day and injecting a pregnancy hormone into them that has received bad media and is NOT recommended by most doctors). the front desk seemed overwhelmed and rushed. 15 minutes of his time will cost you over 100 dollars. this man knows how to seem genuine (talks in soft, caring voice) but it soon becomes apparent that his interest lies in the profit of his business rather than the health of his patients. go to someone else.  Respond

Biggest issue is you never know how much you'll be charged for an appointment despite asking ahead of time (they give a "usually" or "ballpark"). It's always more! It seems like you are being charged for each question you ask. I relize time is money, but seems a bit exaggerated in this office.  Respond
