    I'm very pleased with how Dr. Sabra Leitenberger explained to us about the procedure and what to expect and how we're progressing in the course of the procedure. And yeah, they're very very happy and grateful that she is our doctor. Thank you.

    Everything was great! She explained the procedure, step by step, and made my daughter feel comfortable and safe.

  • May 20, 2019

    My daughter has seen Dr. Leitenberger multiple times and she's always been a very professional, warm, competent, provider and she's also worked with us many times in the past for Grant application forms and everything like that. We're always very happy with your service and very happy with OHSU and all of the nursing staff as well. Thank you.

    This provider was extremely amazing. She made us feel like we were family, just really good with my son. He didn't cry through anything and she was just really amazing. Made the answers that I asked really just simple for me to understand and I just..... I really appreciated the care that we got while we were there.

  • Apr 28, 2019

    Hi, she's very professional,very helpful. She's just everything that we expected and more. 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.
