Physical Therapist

Andrea Leifer

I am a physical therapist with specialized training in the evaluation and treatment of lymphedema. After completing my clinical doctorate in physical therapy at SUNY Upstate Medical University in 2013, I worked with both adult and pediatric patients across the inpatient and outpatient clinical settings. Since joining Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2014, I have been fortunate to treat patients with a variety of conditions including lymphedema and other musculoskeletal and neurologic conditions. I am passionate about helping patients regain function and improve their quality of life.
