About Me

Biographical Statement

I am a board-certified pediatrician and internist with certification as a menopause provider from the North American Menopause Society. My primary interests lie in women’s and adolescent female health. Our medical needs change with each decade of life. As a pediatrician and internist, I have developed skills that allow me to listen, treat and respect the women I care for.

I am specifically trained to help transition adolescent girls who are outgrowing their pediatric practices to a medical home that will better fit their needs. The comprehensive care that I provide for this group of patients, includes:

  • Primary care for adolescents
  • Treatment of dysmennorhea (period problems)
  • Contraception
  • Routine gynecological care
  • Treatment of adjustment disorders and mood issues
  • Coordination of care and medical treatment of patients with eating disorders

In 2015, I founded a program called Turning Teen. This program provides educational workshops to help transition adolescents through puberty without shame or embarrassment. Developing these programs has deepened my understanding of the current medical and psychosocial issues that teens and tweens face. I enjoy sharing this knowledge to help parents successfully navigate their children through this often difficult transition.

In November of 2019, my first book, “Celebrate your Body 2: The Ultimate Puberty Book for Preteen and Teen Girls,” was released. This book is a body-positive guide to puberty for girls ages 10 and older.

After women move through their childbearing years, they are often in need of a primary care medical home. Their medical needs have changed and so should their physician’s approach. I enjoy getting to know women both medically and personally to help me understand them completely. My clinical interests regarding adult female patients include:

  • Menopause
  • Sexual health
  • Breast health
  • Contraception
  • Treatment of mental health issues

I am passionate about my career and my family, and am the mother of three growing daughters who challenge and inspire me daily. I consider myself a professional multitasker, a frequent thinker and believer in the power of girls and women.

Dr. Leff listened to all my concerns and was not pushy about any medical treatment. She let me be my own advocate.

Perceives questions a patient might have as a challenge to her intelligence. Very defensive.

Dr. Leff has provided me with very thorough care since I started seeing her earlier this year. She's helped me to effectively identify some minor health issues that have made a very big impact on my day-to-day life. I really enjoy seeing her, she's very knowledgeable, open to questions and ideas and gives not just the what, but the why when describing treatment options and issues.
