Heather A. Leeb, D.P.M.

heather-leebHeather A. Leeb, D.P.M., grew up on Long Island in an active family and spent much of her time training to dance, running track and playing travel soccer; winning the Long Island Waldbaum’s Cup.

Dr. Leeb understands the patience and compassion necessary to provide effective care for patients. Together, she and patients create holistic programs to treat not only the pain, but also the cause of ailments.

She later graduated from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine with honors and completed her residency caring for US Military veterans at the VA NY Harbor Healthcare hospitals in Manhattan and Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn. Dr. Leeb has affiliations at Winthrop University Hospital and local surgery centers.

Dr. Heather Leeb is married and lives in Nassau County with their dog, a Shiba Inu, named Lotus. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, boating and an extensive shoe collection.
