Dr Leehealy has been ver helpful to me trying her best to get my pain under control spends a lot of time during my appointments
Newport Beach, CA |
I had initially seen Dr. Leehealey in 2011, and after a couple blood tests she referred me on to a neurologist. Then in 2016 after further testing indicated an autoimmune disorder I was required to see her again after my HMO would not approve my referral to a university specialist. She came into my exam room today completely unprepared to discuss test results that she had ordered. She has a limited ability to grasp the seriousness of one's health challenges.

She is concerned for my health and has greatly assisted in seeing to it that I am improving. She has helped to seek the cause of any problem that might have occurred

I would NOT recommend Dr. Leehealey or her office. It took 3 months to get in. My visit was short, she ordered blood work and didn't call me back until I had called 3 times and 1 month went by. My insurance paid most of the bill and I was billed my portion. I paid her, with a cancelled check with her name stamped on the back to prove it. I have called her office and her billing department twice, she continues to bill me and is now threatening collections. Poor MD service. INCOMPETENT BILLING
in Newport Beach, CA |
She prescribed a continued steroid for me even though I have advanced osteoporosis which made my bones even weaker. My T-5 collapsed. She was only in her office part -time. She seemed to scattered. Hard to believe since she is a dr. at UCI. I was expecting more.
