My ten year old son was in pain and suffering with each urination. Dr. Leichter put him on the surgery schedule for the following day. The procedure went perfectly, my son had ZERO complications and healed very well. I will forever be grateful for this MD helping my son when he was in such miserable pain. As an RN I appreciated his help, he was very kind and respectful.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Eric Leichter. He is very thorough, listened to my concerns, and surgically corrected my problem. Altru has really lost a very good doctor.

Its clear to me that the people below never actually met or saw Dr Leichter. Ive worked in the operating room with him for >10years in Grand Forks and never saw him treat patients like this. He talks in a very plain language and knows how to translate --doctor speak-- into language everyone can understand. If I or my family need anything done surgically I would call him first. Ive seen him in action and know how good he really is. So glad to have him here!

Eric Leichter is an excellent urologists. His expertise is paramount. It is ultimately about your health by being properly diagnosed and treated correctly. As a former patient of prostate cancer I was and still am thankful for his concern and experience.

Best urologist I have seen to date! Very thorough, polite, and explains things that a lay person can understand. Hope we keep him in Grand Forks!!

He does not readily offer his knowledge to help you understand your condition; although, he is knowledgeable. His approach is inconsistent i.e., he can be rude and flippant at times but decent at other times.

He was patronizing and talked down to me as a parent and health care worker. Left crying and never looked back. Found another urologist. Im sure he is very knowledgeable but did not share his knownledge

He is very personable. However when I had questions he didnt know the answer to all he said was, --I dont know.-- He did not try to find the answer. I also received little information about my kidney stone and surgery. I was told I didnt need a stent put in and I woke up with one in and was never told why or what I should do next.

Terrible urologist. Perforated my uretor causing me to lose that kidney. Very rude to me and the nurses, unsympathetic to pain management
January 12 , 2010
Dr. Eric Leichter is rude, condescending and I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. It’s easy to say he causes more harm than good. When asking questions about a surgery, he gets visibly irritated and is very unprofessional and rude to his staff. Very short tempered. Should not be practicing medicine.

Worst Urologist that I have ever met. He was rude and unsympathetic to me. He recomended a surgery that I almost went through with. He did not explain the condition to me throughly or go through what my condition would be like after the surgery. Needless to say, I made the staff take out the needles in my arm and I left the hospital that day. I will never go back and do not recomend that anyone puts their lives in the hands of this doctor. I went to a real urologist and he explained that I did not need surgery and that the risks of the operation are greater than the benefits. Be careful with this guy!
