ALTHOUGH I HAVEN'T HAD MY WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY YET, DR. LEITHEAD IS VERY COMPASSIONATE ABOUT MY OTHER HEALTH ISSUES AS WELL, I WISH THERE WERE MORE DOCTORS WHO TRULY CARE FOR THEIR PATIENTS AS HE DOES. CONTINUE BEING YOU ??

Dr. Suau is not only very intelligent, superbly trained and knowledgeable (from what I’ve gleaned online), he is also personable, patient, and a great listener.
