I had a problem breathing on one side of my nose for almost 10 months. My family doctor did what you could and then told me I needed to see a ENT. I'm glad his office set up an appointment with Dr. Leonard. The day I went to see Dr. Leonard he told me what he saw and what needed to be done and also sent me for test to make sure. With-in a month I had surgery and now I can breath! Thank you to Dr. Leonard and Staff, from the front desk to the back office, Chesapeake and Va. Beach offices.

Dr. Leonard, made me feel like he really knew his business. I have been suffering for sinuses for such a long time and I have been tested and treated for many years, however Dr. Leonard put a scope down my nose and knew what was my issue. I pray blessings to the man. I am so glad I went to see him.
