    She was very responsive and treated my son with great care.

  • Sep 20, 2019

    She was energetic, friendly and knowledgeable about what we saw her for.

  • Sep 14, 2019

    Our experience started with a friendly greeting from the receptionist who acknowledged and interacted with my toddler immediately (which makes every parent feel good, they’re our pride & joy). As kids entered the waiting room, not a single one looked sad or dreadful of their appointment. We were called back right on time (gold star!) and greeted by the MA, Emma sho was so incredibly kind and playful with my son. She was knowledgeable and empathetic to my concerns. Dr Leitenberger was in shortly after (minimal wait time with a mobile toddler = double bonus) and spent a good amount of time with us describing my son’s 2 dermatology concerns. We had seen a pediatric derm. specialist when he was a newborn who informed us, ‘we don’t know a lot about port wine stain.’ Dr Leitenberger was confident and descriptive which made me feel very trusting in my son’s health and long term care with OHSU. A nurse joined us throughout the appt, Simon, also very audibly engaged in the conversation and playful with my boy. Overall, it was a 10/10 interaction! I left the practice feeling happy and relieved with all the information I had received. Thank you!!

They really help us out and just, I can't really express in words how much, you know, I appreciate the help from (INAUDIBLE), the doctor and the helpers, the nurses and everybody else. They were very, very friendly and we really do recommend a hundred percent to other people, and we went through a lot, a lot in our life with our baby (INAUDIBLE). We were really in our lowest of lows, but they really stick with us and through it and make things comfortable for us, and we cannot be more happier and god bless. I really do *

    Absolutely love our dr we have for my son she is the best

  • Mar 18, 2019

    The parking situation is nuts but the fact that there is free valet parking was very assuring. The doctor and nurses we interacted with were very kind and reassuring to a very nervous 15 year old that did not want to be stuck with needles. But they very gently told him numerous times all that was being done to him.

  • Mar 17, 2019

    Visiting OHSU is a great experience. My daughter feels well taken care of when visiting.

  • Mar 14, 2019

    She's conscientious and thoughtful and relates well to her patients.

  • Mar 10, 2019

    Very easy to talk to and they asked us if we had any questions. They didn't rush us out the door.

  • Mar 01, 2019

    Doctor Leitenberger. She did a great job of hanging in there with the neuro team and there was good work between the dermatology and the neuro team in helping our son [Name] clean up his scab while he was in sedation. So the multi level organizational feat that all the teams came in and helped our son out. So yep, Dr. Leitenberger did a really good job and helped out with the neuro team in cleaning the scab up when she was actually only seen for the cheek, so, so we're really impressed*

  • Mar 01, 2019

    Everyone was really helpful, patient, and kind.

  • Feb 19, 2019

    She was probably one of the best doctors we've ever seen. She was very wonderful to be around. She was wonderful with [Name], my son. She worked very well with him. She worked very well with us in the room. She just was a delight to be around. She did the procedure, the biopsy very well. Very pleasant, very informative, just very relaxing for the procedure with [Name]. Just incredible doctor all around, and is very, very impressed. We would very highly recommend her.
