Dr. Liedtke is extremely knowledgeable and conscientious. She cares about me and has been prompt in her replies and treatment. I feel very fortunate that she is my hematologist.
The reason I marked very likely vs extremely likely re recommending Michaela was because the visit was so short (a good thing) that it didn’t allow getting to know her better. I was very satisfied with her care.
Dr Leidtke is the warmest most personable Dr I’ve ever met. Add to it her knowledge of myeloma and I cannot say enough praises for her care.

I appreciated her concern about my case. Ditto for Dr. Gupta.
Dr. Liedtke is an excellent provider. She listens. She includes me in the decision making process for my care. She is an advocate for her patients. However, it seems that physicians can be limited by what Stanford is able or willing to offer as options (i.e. specifically in regard to vaccine boosters for immunocompromised patients).

Dr. Leidtke is a very good in taking care of my illness.
She is one of the best doctors I’ve every dealt with and since my case is rare- I’ve seen many Drs! Cannot say enough about her calm compassionate demeanor- after many different and some alarming diagnosis- she seems to understand the complexities of my situation with her knowledge and made me have hope for the first time in awhile!!
Dr. Liedtke is an outstanding doctor. She is aware of your medical condition and gives advice accordingly to needs. I would highly recommend her for help.
See prior comment. She is awesome!
She was very friendly and helpful
I really like her demeanor, enthusiasm and attitude towards my case and well-being. She will be in touch with my oncologist and is looking at doing the stem cell transplant treatment prior to my mastectomy; a different approach than what Kaiser had been considering for the last year. She is also surprised that I did not have a primary breast cancer oncologist assigned to me while working concurrent with the multiple myeloma/hematology oncologist. This makes sense to me although all the oncologist are part of the tumor board.
Dr. Liedtke is absolutely the best doctor and extremely knowledgeable. I needed a second opinion when the doctors at UCLA could not determine what was wrong with me. I did an internet search and found Stanford had the specialty department and the doctors I needed. I cannot say enough about Dr. Liedtke and she is a true hero in my book.
Allowed me to ask questions & answered completely.
Highly competent, compassionate, caring and is a very nice person. Dr. Liedtke is patient and explains things very clearly. If there was an issue I would have complete confidence that it would be properly handled. It is enjoyable to work with her. Just outstanding in every way from my perspective. I am grateful to be in her care. Wow!
I appreciate how Dr. Liedtke listens to all my concerns and takes the time to answer all my questions.
