This man saved my wife’s life after her appendix ruptured and caused her to go septic. She was flown to UVA after the doctors at Sentara RMH no longer had the abilities to treat her. We will never forget this man’s confidence, bedside manor, and abilities. I would truly trust him with my entire family’s life.

Absolutely the best surgeon I have ever had. I was in the hospital for a week and he came to see me every day to check on me, even after working emergency surgeries all night. Very sweet and kind. My surgery was a difficult 6 hour surgery.

Very kind. He asked alot of questions and took time to weigh the answers. He communicated clearly what my issues could be and shared with me his complete treatment plan for me. He did not leave the room until he was sure we were on the same page.

After having to go to the ER by ambulance prior months, on the third time, I begged them not to send me home again, that something was terribly wrong in my "gut". The ER docs called surgeon, Dr. Tache-Leon, who actually listened to my desperate calls for help, paid attention, and by the next morning I was in surgery. It was a "tough" 8-hr surgery, but I came away from it being so grateful that Dr. Tache was able to take care of the problem. Excellent surgeon, excellent person!
