in Newtown, PA |
I am 65 years old. I had severe hand pain, a 10 on my right hand, and a 6 on my left. Made an appointment with Rothman who scheduled me for the same day. I filled out paperwork, got x rays. Dr. comes in, says X-rays look good somebody will be in to schedule a test. Saw him for no more than 2 minutes. A nurse comes in, takes me in another room and schedules me for a test at first opening. IN A MONTH. Went to another Dr. been operated on and pain gone within a week. Leinberry did not care.
Dear Patient, Thank you for your feedback. If interested, in speaking with us further about your experience, please contact us at 267-339-3689. Sincerely, Rothman Institute

Dr Leinberry is an excellent surgeon for hand issues. He has treated me on three occasions with excellent results.
in Pottstown, PA |
Dr. Leinberry has performed carpal tunnel surgery on both my hands and trigger thumb surgery on my right hand. All surgeries were successful with no complications. My most recent visit to Dr. Leinberry was for severe pain in my left wrist which Dr. Leinberry diagnosed as arthritis. He prescribed an appliance that I wear over night. After four weeks of wearing the appliance, my pain disappeared. Dr. Leinberry is my hand hero! He is thorough and kind. I highly recommend Dr. Leinberry!

Dr. Leinberry was very professional. He had a great bedside manner. And things were explained clearly to me what was going to happen pre-op and post-op. I was totally pleased with my experience.

Dr. Leinberry is well known as the best hand orthopedic at Rothman. He was quick to see me, evaluate my medical needs, and swift to schedule me for surgery. He and his staff at Nazareth and at Rothman were courteous, sincere and friendly. Thank you again Dr. Leinberry for being a fantastic surgeon.

I was scheduled for carpal tunnel surgery in 5/3 with another doctor for my right hand who did not do endoscopic surgery. I called for a last minute 2nd opinion with Dr. Leinberry. I was so impressed with him and his fabulous staff that I had both wrists done on 5/4. When I woke up the next morning I experienced immediate relief. I am healing nicely and would do it all over again!!
in Bensalem, PA |
I was in horrible pain today and crying when I went to his office with NO appointment. Due to treatment needed for another illness, MY time to see a dr. was very limited. I had never seen this Dr. before but had seen his associates. My hand was x-rayed, he explained my problem clearly, administered treatment and sent me on my way within 1 hour. He REALLY saved me as my hand was throbbing like a toothache and now feels so much better. I have to say that his staff were just as wonderful as he was.

in Bensalem, PA |
Honest, direct and very clear on what the issue was and what was needed to be done to resolve the problem.
in Levittown, PA |
I had bilateral carpal tunnel release surgery. Yes, both at once :) My surgery was quick, I had nausea afterwards and never needed my prescribed pain meds. I live alone and other than a ride home, I needed no help and was completely capable of taking care of myself. From the first night, I could sleep soundly again. No more numbness!! Dr Leinberry has a wonderful bedside manner, he answers all questions in detail and is very kind.
in Bristol, PA |
Saw Dr. Leinberry for Carpal Tunnel release surgery. Still recovering two weeks later with minor soreness but Carpal Tunnel symptoms are gone. Very good experience so far.
in Bensalem, PA |
Dr. Leinberry did an excellent job with putting a plate in my wrist, I am more than pleased. When I first broke my wrist I should have followed his suggestion with the plate but I went with the cast on for the first 3 weeks. Big mistake. I think if he would have been a little more pushy with me I would have done the plate right away.
in Philadelphia, PA |
