Apollo Beach, FL |
I agree with the other person about Dr. Leche being great, but his office staff is awful -- really awful! She is probably a really nice person, but Grace is the worst! She is horrible on the phone...really horrible. It is making me second guess if going to Dr. Leche is worth it, no matter how wonderful he is. It makes me question his decision-making to keep such incompetent and rude staff employed.

Dr. Leche is fantastic.....unfortunately, his office staff is terrible. They seem overwhelmed and uneducated. They do not follow up. They do not document things correctly. I have seen them treat patients checking in and out like they really do not care. They are not rude, just indifferent. BUT, again, Dr. Leche is wonderful!! He takes his time with you. He is patient and kind, and very knowledgeable.
